The president of CD

I have had the idea for a while to have a mock election on CD to see who would win. Many people would by default say that Andy is president since he owns the site but that's not the point, the point is to see who would win democratically.
So here's how this is going to work...
There are three parties, the socialist party (for far leftists such as me and Nom) the centrist party (for social democrats and liberals such as Mingi, Excon and AlofRI)  and the conservative party (for right wingers). Anyone who wants to participate needs only to say so in this debate, and you will be assigned to your corresponding party.
After that there will be a debate for each party, where you state your general platform (pretend CD is a country) and then everyone on the site will be free to vote for a single candidate from whichever party they prefer. We will not be using the upvote/downvote system as it can easily be abused, instead I will make a forth debate where everyone who wants to vote will state who they are voting for and why and then I will tally the votes for each party and the nominees will be selected.
After that there will be a final debate where each party's nominee states their policy/general opinion on four issues (economy, military, science, and culture) and disputes the other candidates as they see fit, then there will be a final vote starting exactly 24 hours after the final debate is published. Whoever gets the most votes in the 24 hour period after the final "voting box" is published will become the "president" and we'll go on our merry way.
PS: Candidates are not allowed to vote for themselves or other candidates.

In exchange for declaring you champion of tiddlywinks, Mingi demands cessation of the running for Presidency by the Socialist Party. Deal or no deal?

I am running for the Socialist party.

Who decides the winner? As in, who is the voter-base?

Anyone who wants to vote who is not a candidate themselves. I will know if any alt accounts try to interfere with the democracy and double vote.

Firstly no, you won't know unless it's you as you have no tracking capacity.

Secondly, it entirely comes down to them and their IQ, preferences etc. so it's extremely important to know every single voter and get aggregate data. Then I will humiliate you in campaign strategy and leave you in the dirt as you beg to coalition against the Republicans.

Can I run as an independent ;)

You're a conservative, you troll liberals and your views are right wing. You don't have to conform to any code of conduct or general set of policies so if you want to be "independent" that's fine but you will be considered part of the conservative party.

Whaaaat? Some of my best friends are liberals ;)

And off course the whole process is going to be fair you’ve already banned others now you’re resorting to your usual insults as in calling others trolls , you’re a typical socialist bully boy and a prick into the bargain , why not just declare yourself the winner by voting with your 81 alt accounts you raging buffoon

I am running as a centrist to work with both parties. Free speech and religious liberty for all are part of my platform.

We now have two centrists we're just waiting for at least a couple cons and anyone else who wants to jump in and we can get started.

Nope, there hasn't even been an election yet. I don't think enough people will run to even begin the election at this rate, we are the only ones running. UNLESS you just want to skip right to the final debate and have it just between us.

I nominate Outlaw as president.

He is the most unprejudiced participant here as he clearly dislikes most of you morons equally.

No bias or partiality, just an even handed loathing for the vomit you lot disgorge onto the site under the guise of reasoned argument.

YES SIRREE BOB LET'S RAISE THE STANDARDS ON CD;- OUTLAW FOR PRESIDENT

WHY I CAN HEAR THE BUGLES BLOWING AND THE DRUMS BEATING ALREADY.

Out of the right wingers, I'd support Amarel over the rest as I know Amarel will actually lead the best and with genuine right-wing impartiality and 'each makes his/her own' mentality.
