    Default Searching for interest - Elections game

    Hello Backroomers, would you like to play an US Elections game, like the one CA did some months ago? If there is a lot of interest, maybe I will host one.

    Thanks.

    I'd like to see something like the Constitution Convention. Hashing out the rules of a new government and such. But that depends, again, on who would sign up for it. Either way, you've got my vote.

    I ask because it's usually something like that which causes outbursts like this, needless to say I dissagree completely.

    I'm with Marshal Murat. I'd love to see what kind of constitution the org would end up with.
    Why did the chicken cross the road?

    So that its subjects will view it with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road,
    but also with fear, for whom among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue? In such a manner is the princely
    chicken's dominion maintained. ~Machiavelli

    Only If I'm elected.
    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    You will have to debate for it.

    Maybe someone would enlighten me with the constitution thing?

    I might be up for it.
    It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then, the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

    I was suggesting that rather than re-enact an election, we should instead have a Constitutional Convention. This, in my view, would let us work on crafting a document/documents that would create a national government of some sort. We could hammer out a monarchy, a democracy, a confederacy, any form of government, so long as it can pass by a vote of the various states.

    Each person who signs on would be randomly assigned a state/province/chiefdom that they would represent at a "convention" and would have to argue for ideas that their state would like to see in their government. We could have some true discussion of actual policy and governmental organization without trying to buy voters on campaign slogans and such.
