stop fighting democracy

the poll has been presented badly

you can’t discount their votes because they’re not all elitists like you

IRL, if someone chooses to cast a vote before doing basic research on the candidate or issue, then I personally have no sympathy for them. You don’t halt and rewind the entire democratic voting process simply because someone regrets their rash voting decision.

ITT, if someone chooses to cast a vote before reading the OP, then I personally have no sympathy for them. You don’t halt and rewind the entire thread simply because someone regrets their rash voting decision.

Restarting the thread would be a much more significant interference with the democratic process that simply allowing it to run its course.

But the actual IRL election is already underway, and part of the contest depends upon the IRL results. ANd as I re-read the candidates posts, then the Bonuses say, “If I also”, suggesting that the bonus is directly tied to whether or not that particular candidate wins on FWZ first, and THEN the bonuses would apply if the conditions are met.

We’re already more than 75% through the actual election; it’s far too late to modify our FWZ contest.

I’m so glad that Obama didn’t win. Just listen to the idiots that voted for him.

Landslide on FW and pretty unlikely it’ll be much different IRL. Also, CNN sucks.

FYI, real world current electoral vote tally (270 needed to win) based on exit polls.

Obama: 175

McCain: 37

In other words, if you want to win anything at all, you need to vote & friend Obama in this thread.
