    2008 Presidential Mock Election

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by lordofhats, Feb 18, 2008.

    2008 PRESIDENTIAL MOCK ELECTION

    This is it folks. Time to pick who writingforums.org would choose as the next president of the United States of America! Like in our primaries you need not be a US citizen, of voting age, or someone who even cares. This is a site with many members from around the world and all are invited to participate in this event if they want to.

    Please vote, cross your fingers, pray to whichever deity you typically pray to (or none at all), and keep it friendly!

    Here it is. The candidates for the 2008 Presidential Mock Election for writingforums.org are:

    Ron Paul
    Barack Obama

    The polls are now open! You may vote between from 12:00 midnight (US Eastern Time) February 19, 2008 to February 25, 2008. You have one-week people!

    No replies are necessary for this event though you may feel free to speak. I will ask that no one ask anyone else who they voted for. If you wish to voice yourself who you voted for feel free! I will announce the winner at 12:00 midnight (US Eastern Time) February 26, 2008.

    In the case of a tie we will have the election decided by the “On this Day” section of Wikipedia. If the top event on the list took place in an odd numbered year the winner will be the Republican Candidate. If the year is even, the winner will be the Democratic Candidate. I assure you, I have no control or power over the actions of Wikipedia.

    The hell are you talking about? Everyone has a little bit of control in the communist world of Wikipedia.

    Seeing how it is relevent I decided to post a link to an article on Ralph Nader who has recently announced he will once again run for President in 2008.

    Just as we can expect an annual flu epidemic, every four years there's a Ralph Nader outbreak.

    Sigh.

    LOL :D.

    EDIT: I might as well add this. You have 6 hours left for voting people! If you have not yet voted and wish too you have six hours remaining before the polls are closed and the winner is announced!
