    Since good Sherdoggers don't read OP's.

    Fellow Sherbros,

    The time has come to make a final decision. Before you decide please take a moment to understand the differences between team Cubo/Chris and Luckyshot/Fawlty.

    A vote for Lucky is a vote for the continuation of left-wing partisanship in the same vein as we got with the Homer/Lucky administration. Just switch out Homer with Fawlty. A vote for Cubo is a vote against letting partisan elitists shout you down and ridicule you, as they attack in a pack.

    A vote for Lucky is a vote for the same old threads made every day in this forum. They've admitted there's nothing special about their plan. But that's ignorant, and telling. What does it say about them that they couldn't even bother to find out the specifics of what the office of President can do? A vote for Cubo is a vote for somebody who wants to make a difference badly enough to understand the rules. The President gets to make sticky-threads, set the rules (that don't break forum rules), and enforce any breeches of conduct via the authority of reply bans. This is why my platform is the only one bringing value to our War Room. I'll raise the standard of discourse in those threads and reply ban those who choose not to abide.

    So ask yourself, do you want the same old threads, but all from a partisan left perspective? Or do you want a variety of posters to create content from across the political spectrum, where I work diligantly on your behalf to weed out the worthless trolling and the substitution of insults for arguments?

    I humbly request this opportunity to attempt something we've never had here. Something that can only be done if elected President. It is my promise to work as hard as I can not to let you down. And to stake my reputation on conducting myself impartially when enforcing the sticky-thread rules. You will all have a chance to submit your ideas and be thread starters. You will all be able to post in the threads without fear of partisan hostility undermining the process of deciding which ideas are best, rather than victories being claimed over which guy talks the best smack.

    This shouldn't be about which poster you like better, Cubo or Lucky. It should be about which platform is going to deliver the greatest benefit to the War Room. The answer to that is inarguably the Cubo/Chris platform.

    Godspeed.

    I was going to vote for @Clippy, but now that he's joined the luckyshot ticket, I'm team Lucky all the way!

    With luckyshot's experience, intelligence, and cool temperament (that other guy is an emotional wreck!), combined with Clippy's raw sexual magnetism?

    Look at the creative energy exerted for your entertainment between the two campaigns, then ask yourself who you can trust to put work into this for the next 11 months.

    Wazzzup WR? It's your friendly iPotWR, luckyshot here. As the election of 2018 grinds on like the Battle of Verdun, I don’t give a heck. I’ll do this all day.

    Thank You Voters!!!
    First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who voted for luckyshot & Fawlty in Round 1 and/or Round 2. Whatever else happens in this election, it is truly incredible that so many posters deigned to give us their support. We are humbled. And, of course, we'd like to thank @Lead for putting in serious work to host this fiasco.

    luckyshot and Team Sanity won the first round of this election. We were the top choice for more voters than anyone else. Some assumed that “Second Choice Cubo” would cruise in the second round.

    Whelp, guess what folks? Didn’t happen. We won that one, too.

    If you didn’t vote luckyshot in Round 1 or Round 2, that’s OK, I ain’t mad atchya. Come on over! Party’s still going, water’s still warm, and we’re about to make a fresh beer run!

    Why lucky?

    Content
    My Sticky thread plans are right here where they’ve always been. Right out in front. Under President luckyshot the PotWR sticky threads will become one of the WORLD’S foremost intellectual resources for exposing bothsideism.

    The sticky thread will be an ongoing series of topics—guest written, thoroughly cited and sourced, by Sherdog’s leading intellectual lights— dedicated to utterly dissecting the pernicious myth that “both sides are just the same anyways.” And yes, smart conservatives will get their say.

    Some of the topics in this series – each to be explored in detail – would be:
    · markets
    · immigration
    · technology/infrastructure
    · social programs
    · civil rights
    · military interventionism
    · fiscal responsibility
    · jurisprudence
    · the environment
    Think you know what “both sides” have really done throughout history in these areas? You’ll probably be surprised by a fact or two – or ten. You get to pick which side you think is right; we’re here to explore how both sides are – and are not – the same.

    Other candidates either have NO vision for the sticky thread or a totally unrealistic vision based on false powers that the PotWR doesn’t have.

    Cubo has said he’d turn the sticky thread into a long, interminable series of votes about what the Sticky thread should be about! Lol. How pointless… anyone on Sherdog can make a thread. Why do you need 99 votes to see what the Sticky thread should be about? There is an old saying, “If you have two quarterbacks, then you don’t have a quarterback.” Well, if you have 25 different ideas for a Sticky thread, you don’t have a Sticky thread.

    A leader needs to have an actual VISION.

    There is one important addition to the Sticky platform, and this comes courtesy of esteemed WR stalwart @JDragon. In addition to the “bothsides” series, the WR sticky will also contain a comprehensive list of the most common logical inconsistencies and rhetorical fallacies that we see in the War Room debate—along with specific examples. I thank JD for this suggestion, and feel it will really serve to raise the level of awareness for and around quality argumentation.

    When you look at it honestly, I’m the only candidate with a clear, realistic, specific vision for the Sticky thread. I’d get it done right, and over the course of the next year, we’d learn an important thing or two that affects our political outlook. Isn’t that why we’re here?
    My Sticky plans are better than Cubo’s. I am still willing to debate, defend or modify them based on the best ideas anyone’s got. I feel extremely confident that I continue to offer the most clear, specific, realistic, and focused plan for the Sticky.

    Speaking of thread-making content… it’s recently been brought to my attention that Cubo has made a grand total of four threads this year. Why should Cubo be gifted a Sticky thread when he barely ever even bothers making regular threads? I, on the other hand, have contributed content to the WR continuously.

    Temperament
    From the start of this campaign I have made no bones about who I am or where I stand: anti-Trumpism but vigorously pro-honest, specific debate. Again and again I have demonstrated the willingness to listen calmly to those with whom I disagree, and to try to understand why they believe what they believe.

    Community
    I’ve really enjoyed the relationships I’ve made over this stupid fake election. This, of course, includes my Sanity brothers, but also all the guys who have busted my balls in good humor. Thank you all. One guy I’ve been lucky to get to interact with for first time is a man who is a King in his own Realm, a funny dude (who actually has very common-sense political views), and – most important – a People’s Champion...

    I am thrilled to announce that as part of the community building initiative of the luckyshot campaign, @Clippy has graciously agreed to join this party-- in a Role of shadowy behind- the- scenes power!!

    That’s right folks: in a first ever WR special 2 for 1 deal: You vote luckyshot & Fawlty, and you get a Clippy absolutely free! (or vice versa).

    Sanity gives the people what they want. Let’s do this folks. Let’s have some fun out there.

    PS- If you are a Sanity voter worried that I've "sold out" by accepting Clippy's endorsement, never fear. Turns out that even a Paper Clip has more spine when it comes to expressing a clear opinion than "moderate left" candidate Cubo, lol.

    Thank you fellas and ladies for your votes to this point. There is just one more vote to go before the winner is declared. Been a long election but it's nearly over, and we have a good chance of winning. Check out our position and our plan below.

    Thanks again, and cheers!




    We will come out of the gate swinging in January, where we will tackle our first issue: Free Speech! The modern and historical considerations: constitutional limits, safe spaces, political correctness, lies, academia. Words from ancient civilizations, to the Founding Fathers, all the way to modern thinkers. Who has it right? Is it really "both sides?" We'll tear into it together and decide. While we're going hard from the start, the other campaign wants to hold a town hall. Forget that! We know each other well enough around here, and we're ready to get started on day 1.

    Luckyshot and Team Sanity have a clear, specific vision of exposing "both sideism," illogical beliefs from every ideology, and getting to the truth of the issues. Threads will be comprehensive and high-quality, sourced and researched. Arguments will be held to a high standard. We will be as tough on shaky liberal arguments as we are on conservative ones. A strong argument is a strong argument.


    So vote for sanity, vote for the strongest arguments, and vote to curb both-sideism. Vote for Luckyshot (plus clippy!)!

    To you voters, I'd never sell you out to a paperclip from another forum. My allegiances lie here and only here, in the War Room.
