    Yes this is true. However, you think you've been alone in PMing him? I have as well. And do you think the GPC would join Aegis, or CoD if given the chance?

    I'd have offered you a spot in our coalition, but I didn't (and don't) think you would accept it. Could I have been wrong?

    Edit:

    Reading his post again, I think that Cull meant this:

    Meaning that the GPC wouldn't join either coalition, even if invited.

    Yeah i doubt GPC will join either coalition. They would both go against their principles, and give the opposition too much ammo against them.

    And Cull i never thought i would be alone in PM'ing him. I only think i have a better chance than Aegis/GPC.

    Hm. My laptop died the other day, too (I get computer access at work, though, so I'm lucky). I wonder if there is a conspiracy ....?

    Well, nothing to do but hold my breath as I await the Monks' actions.

    I think this is an idea. We don't post here until Ravus reached a decision. That way every time a new post comes up I think its Ravus already decided.

    -

    As you can see if Arya and JMUG just voted for their ally they would have 8. But here's why i don't want to be in a coalition. Because If i'm in a coalition it means Cull will probably become the opposition leader... IF i stay as this huge neutral party then i become opposition leader. Which would you prefer fair people? *sigh* unfortunatly this is pointless because of the... now 30 minute time limit.

    I have issues with all sides. CoD (Doesn't that bring back memories) because Arya seems confrontational. Aegis because Whosit is going to end up relying on Ilduce as his second and that disturbs a lot of people. Neither of the parties are... whats the word... diversified enough to be politically respectable.

    So here is my comeplty dasterdly move. (And it wasn't all part of a secret plan don't believe Cull) I join the Green Philosphers and Cast my last vote for Cull's the NPP.

    Yes that's right. The Election is now a draw. The GP are quite happy playing opposition in this time of war so we're not trying to win. This is just a harsh move that means the other two coalitions will have to either compromise with each other and combine or seduce Cull. Congratulation Cull. The Future of our whole election now rests in your hands. Lets see how you like it :p

    Mine isn't completly dead... It turns on. then the hard drive stops spinning and doesn't boot up. So i'm just left with a light saying it's on and it's not.

    -

    PS i suppose i can ask if the election gets extended for another hour while people sort out a compromise? :p

    Argh... Ravus!!

    Besides, Arya isn't even going to be the leader in this coalition...

    C'mon, Cull, wouldn't you rather vote for the Socialist Religious Extremists?:D We'd have a huge party (pun intended) between the religious nuts, the commies and the ninja pirates!!
