    Anyway, since I am in a race for this election. I must fight in this election. My primary platform is peace with no agressive wars. I plan to see my time in office with no agressive wars. I will tolerate defensive wars in the event a civ declares war against us from out of the blue. I do not beleve we should go along with agressive warefare to gain land since we are pretty much large enough to hold our own. Defensive warefare is a whole different ball game since the other civ gets slaped with a rep hit. Personaly, I do not beleve we should be declaring wars and breaking treaties just to gain the upper hand. I beleve that we should remain in good terms with other nations.

    I also encurage all citizens to vote for me, CivGeneral because I am currently a FAs Deputy seeking a Minister's possition and have gained the experiance thanks to Civman2004. In my times as deputy, I have covered my supervisor in times of need. I have posted instructions for him, I looked up the current relations between us and other civs, I have looked up prices for embassies, Also by request of Civman2004 checked on any peace renegotiation deals possible (Though I am against hanging our nations upside down and shaking money out of them <- Typical School yard bully tatic)

    Pease citizens, Vote For CivGeneral :).

    Questions:
    1) If a woodchuck could chuck wood, how much would a woodchuck chuck?
    2) How actively would you seek out military alliances if China were to declare war on us?
    3) What would your minimum terms for peace be to end any war?

    Personally, I support Donovan_Zoi in any position he runs for. He's smart, articulate, imaginative, and a darn good Civ3 player. But in this instance, I'm going to take a leap of faith.

    I'm backing CivGeneral, as from what I can see, he realized the complexity of the Nomination problem, readjusted his stance on election standards, and attempted to open an Election Poll between himself and DZ. This took guts. I would be hesitant to run against DZ. :D But CG did it, and this is the kind of honorable, gutsy gameplay I like to see. Therefore my vote goes to CG. Good luck!

    1. How does this relate to the affairs of the Demogame :p
    2. I will be very active in seeking military alliance in the event china declares war on us. I would first seek out China's neighbors (The old real estate attage "Location, Location, Location"). Second, I would check both there stances twards us and how much the alliance should cost in order to enter the alliance.
    3. The minimum terms for peace to be in the end of any war is oviously the peace treaty itself. If that is not possible, the minumum terms for peace would be in the form of eather gold or a deadbeat tech that has no benifits to eather party.

    I've read somewhere that an average woodchuck could chuck around 35ft^3 of dirt while digging his burrow. If a woodchuck could chuck wood, the woodchuck would chuck a mass equal to 700lbs.

    With Science asside, A woodchuck would chuck as much wood as a woodchuck could if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

    This is an impressive answer from my opponent, but is suspect due to the initial dodge of the question. I contend that Google may have played a role.

    Also, I would like to submit the correct answer to the first question:

    "If a woodchuck could chuck wood, he would chuck as much wood as a woodchuck could"

    Only a keen eye would notice that the clauses of the popular tongue twister are reversed in the blackheart's question. Therefore is stands to reason that the correct answer should follow a similar format.

    EDIT: More answers coming soon......

    DZ, its not a dodge of a question. I actualy talked with Blackheart about why he asked that question. Also, I did not used google. Remember that I am in the Marine Science Associate Degree program in my college, in the program are two Biology classes.

    Once again, Donovan_Zoi proves he is unable to do anything without trying to insult and ridicule his opponent.

    Give me a break, guys! :lol: It's a question about woodchucks. :confused:

    Notice how the first thing I take CG to task on is his answer about woodchucks. If anything, my response is a veiled attempt to poke fun at the current electoral nonsense, where non-issues get the most press.

    Unfortunately, some are either too sensitive or humorless to pick it up. :(

    That or your vain attempt at humor is overlooked, as your habit of insulting your opponents is much more known. You can't poke fun at someone, and expect them to be happy about it.

    And now for the answer to the real questions:

    2) How actively would you seek out military alliances if China were to declare war on us?

    I certainly would not pay money for an alliance, and doubt that anyone would join our cause straight up. Therefore, I would probably lobby to wait out the cold war in the hopes that peace can be reached. I would also be in contact with our Military Advisor to ensure our troops are on high alert.

    3) What would your minimum terms for peace be to end any war?

    Since I would not advocate aggression, I doubt that the prize will be anything more than peace itself. I would pay up to 50g to avoid a losing battle, but don't believe our Military will put us in that situation.
