    If we have an actual political party, would @zaiger or @Atomic_Joe be the figure-head?

    What if we had (in the US) a set few run for President and other political positions? Who would it be?

    I'd volunteer, but I am still too young (35 is the line).

    Zaiger is the Big Kahuna, The Big Boss.

    Also, I hate politics.

    I am glad that there are multiple people on the forums entertaining this notion. Whoever volunteers to run for positions would be the ae Party candidate in that election. Given we are not going to be huge for a while, we won't have to worry about multiple EDiots running for the same position. For example, I want to convince my former SEAL buddy to run as an (ae Party) independent in the near future, like 2016.

    I'll be 25 during that election year. I could probably do lesser things like Treasurer.

    We are not going to win the Presidency any time soon, so anyone we want to run for president shouldn't be a serious candidate. Instead it would be better if they were a megaphone for the entire party itself. It would be a wiser move to stick our more serious candidates into positions within state senates or federal congress.

    There's always the prospect of rigging the election, like what happened between Bush and Gore in Florida.

    We are hackers on steroids, if we wanted to get into seeing the real numbers, we could in any election we had a candidate running in.

    I'm no script kiddie.

    But, as voting becomes more electronic based, it would be just lulzy if we won just one state, and do something no Independent has done before.

    It is a joke as I am not either, but it isn't like we could encourage people to do some research if something is fishy.

    The thing is we could easily win a state/federal (short of the presidency) election due to the fact we have a giant propaganda machine at our disposal. Though winning a state in a presidential election would be very lulzy.

    Well, can you figure out every state's anon user ratio? I could run for smaller stuff, since most age limits are 18 and being a resident.

    I don't think we can. However, the point of us discussing/debating basic policy on the forums is to have a platform that will interest anons of various political ideologies, but mainstream society.

    One thing I learned from the success of Lyndon LaRouche is if you want people to care about your platform, you have to literally go house to house to talk to voters about the issues. And you need a propaganda machine (but we already have that).

    Also if we decided policy in any other place, the tyranny of the majority and idiotic (example Occupy Wall Street) would be rampant and quickly devolve into bullshit activism, as the local OWS did about complaining about it is illegal to sleep outside in the city.

    I can see the platform now:
    "We live in a country where politicians use religion and photo opportunities to blanket the common media outlets to prove their humanistic sides, and to base shallow campaign promises in order to secure a cushy job that involves mountains of paperwork, all while being in the back pocket of corporate interest. Hello, my name is Nathen (Since that's what @oddguy thinks my name is), or as I am known online as "Voodeuxfy." Join us, as well as many others this coming election, to make a difference in this country.

    'What can I expect from the Dramatica Party?' you may ask? Well it's simple really: No Bullshit. Yes, that's right, No Bullshit. I'm not going to look you in the eye and tell you everything is fine, provide you a warm bottle of milk, and rock you to sleep, just for you to go back to your job the next day. The truth is, we have a lot of work ahead of us, and a mountain of debt to fix. So put on your big boy pants, and your big girl skirt, and join me and the many others who will help us fix all this shit.

    My name is Nathen, and I approve this message."

    And, scene.

    That would be a great ad. However, in this election, the only candidate the ED Party supports for President is Gary Johnson, who is like Ron Paul, without all the baggage that is Ron Paul.

    Maybe when I am older, I can be cool like Gary Johnson. :negative:

    Or I could legally change my name to David Davidson.

    Here's the thing. As way cool as it WOULD BE to be the face of a political party, it's not something I am the least bit capable of. It's also worth noting that my part in ED is EXTREMELY small. The likes of General Zaiger, edgeworth, meepsheep, wiki admins and forum admins would be the ones that ought to be in charge. Extensive knowledge of Encyclopedia Dramatica and internetting ability. Dr Rice, PerpA, Uberfukken, and any other political savants would also make for good leadership roles due to intellect, ability, and shit.

    I avoid politics because I have no interest in them. I stopped voting because I am starting to believe it's a placebo to sedate the masses with the ILLUSION of choice. Pass me a tinfoil hat if you want.

    You are not alone my friend.

    Still, as I said earlier, as voting becomes more electronic, it would be fucking hilarious if it was exploited for something lulzy.

    What if ae party hijacked a popular movement ? Lets say Occupy ,and used that as a mouthpiece for the party . Free advertisement . The more involved we get for the better the more enthusiastic other people will become. Perhaps start some affiliated Charities ,and a public out reach program.

    We already have a giant mouthpiece, the fact we are a large wiki that is well known for its free speech advocacy is quite a good propaganda machine. But as you state, we could have more IRL associations hook up with us. Next semester, I really plan on pushing the ED Party in my two higher level political science classes and my politics club towards people who will listen (which some do as I am rather convincing).

    Occupy Wall Street is a failure and is impossible to hijack (as I tried this myself) due to its design, the tyranny of the majority (which 1) prevents anything from getting accomplish; 2) the majority is mostly idiots). What would be smarter is to go into OWS movements and tell people that if you like OWS without all the faggotry the pseudo-socialism and pussytown anarchism, they should join the ED Party. Or go to Tea Party rallies and tell them that the ED Party is into the "libertine fascism" that our founding fathers were into (which has nothing to do with libertarians or actual Italian Fascism, but rather the nature of society they wished to create).

    I like this ,except for the wiki bit the wiki might be as much of a stumbling block as it a platform of free speech. We are kind of publicly viewed as racists sexist ,and antisemetic .
