The Coalition for the Abolition of Parties and the Reign of Free Thought is now splitting up into 3 entities so we can better represent all who wish to run. Each branch will nominate its own candidates.
This is Branch 3.
If others wish to join our cause, please do not hesitate to do so. We expect our members to make up their own minds, and to vote for whichever candidate they agree with the most.March 1, 2007 at 4:00 pm #265868

That’s partially correct. These three legally separate parties were created to prevent cases like we had last election, when Monko was unable to run, simply because he wasn’t nominated (even though he had good plans and dedication).
If you think about it, this format does little to help any single candidate from any of the entities. First of all, our former party is now split into three, each of which could nominate a candidate. This dilutes our membership, and crowds up the races. Furthermore, We are quite clear in stating that we do not actually endorse any candidate. We only nominate candidates so that they may run, even if we don’t agree with their plans — and we make it clear to our members that they are to vote individually on who they feel is best for the position.
This format is not beneficial to us. In fact, it’s beneficial to the other parties, who do not have a policy of encouraging their voters to vote individually.March 16, 2007 at 2:54 pm #267596
Ah, I understand now. Three branches of the same political party with the same basic principles. Each branch can put forth a candidate, but each one will be running for essentially the same party.
Not too shabby!
Why three though? I would have settled with two, but I suppose it’s better to have too many than too few.March 16, 2007 at 7:32 pm #267679
