and Doubling Down
on a bipartisan basis it seems
I'm considering starting a regional party
To give a real alternative to this bullshit
But the best way to do that is to wait until after they are for sure doing this
by which I mean passing Soap amendments so no one can deny it
Yeah, I will have plenty of time to work on Atlasia stuff next week
And I've been thinking about calling it The "Lincoln Beer Party"
Also, if I lose reelection
I'll be waiting for the first special assembly election to open up
Yep it's a spin on Tea Party
I want to change "national crisis" to "regional crisis"
I have been an active member since November of 2015. I remember back in the days of November, when there was little activity and I was called upon to be a candidate for the Southern Assembly. I won that election, and then I became Speaker shortly after entering that office. We got a lot of things done back then. A lot of things got done back then. We worked together, bipartisanly to change our region for the good, and we did
I did the same thing in the new House. I was elected to the first House, and became Majority Leader. We again set a standard for the House in that Congress, under my leadership. I was then elected to the 7th, 8th, and 9th Congresses and I was Majority Leader, and we worked with opposition parties to advance our platform, we worked bipartisanly again. My opponent, fairbol criticizes me somehow implying that “I’m not a bold defender of liberty”. I agree with him on the need to curb government spending, but he’s lying about my record. I want to give the Southern region a choice between an experienced candidate, or an inexperienced candidate.
As Governor of the South, I will work with the legislature to get many real kitchen table issues taken care of. We’ll fix runaway government spending by funding a private investigation into our agencies and such to show us where we need to cut, to show us where the waste is. We’ll fix the economy so a hardworking Atlasian doesn’t have to work two or three jobs to just get by, that’s disgraceful. We’ll let every hardworking person in our region get a shot- we’ll encourage immigration, we’ll encourage our region to be much more environmentally friendly. I believe a platform of compassionate conservatism and bipartisanship is what is needed for our region. If you want policy over rhetoric, I’ll be a great governor. I ask that you endorse me for those following reasons. I’ll change the South, and to correct fairbol: I’m not the status quo candidate, I’m the results candidate. I don’t back down from my positions, and I won’t fail you.
Is that a good request to the Federalist Party to endorse me?
well, it's going to be a primary between you and fairbol
and you'll get moderates
while fairbol gets conservatives
I think I can pull off some conservatives too though. But hm. Who do you think is favored to win
honestly, it's anyone's game rn
it'll depend on turnout
and who sends better pms
Yeah I’ll probably send my pms out tonight or tomorrow to the federalist voters
Honestly I think I can win the general the primary is the only thing that phases me
yep, but if you lose, you can still run for senate in april
since Mr. R is going to the senate early
or you can run for CoD
maybe the house might need you
I wouldn’t run for a Delegate seat, maybe the Senate. I dunno yet but yeah, I’m still hoping I win the Governorship. If no other candidate enters I thought about running as an Independent Federalist
But peebs is gonna run so I ain’t gonna be no spoiler
well with ranked choice voting, there isn't the spoiler effect of RL elections
Oh yeah. Maybe I’ll do that then. But I hope I win the primary. I’m gonna send out some pms to federalists followed by the old labor coalition that was down here
and what do you think of my Lincoln Beer Party idea
as a regional party
