Election Shenanigans

Day 1,871, 12:07 Published in USA USA by Pfeiffer.

As I'm sure many of you are aware, John Jay has decided to leave himself on the ballot for this month's Presidential election...despite losing the unity process that all the parties agreed to use. Why, nobody can say (and Jay refuses to do so).

He has now, according to his Party Vice President Oblige, stated that he will only drop out of the race if I admit to 'election rigging'. He somehow thinks that I have the power to get the Federalist Party and the American Military Party to do whatever I want. I wish I did, because then I would have far fewer headaches in this game, but it simply isn't the case.

I'm not sure why he thinks I can do these things, I know he has it in his head that I'm running multis to vote in the party primaries...but I barely logged into my own account over the holiday, let alone dozens of others. When I saw that he wasn't even spending any time campaigning in AMP (probably because he thought he would walk to a win), I knew fingerguns was going to win that party. She had support from some of their party leadership who went to bat for her as well...Jay had Haliman's support, but I'm not sure he tried to campaign at all, just complained about the results.

For the record, John Jay lost the AMP 38 to 12. That is a twenty-six vote margin. If I was even HALF of fingerguns votes (and that would be a lot of effort to do without detection), he still would have lost. Hell, rounding up due to decimals and she still beats him by one vote if I was TWO-THIRDS of her votes (and there is no way you can even come close to making that case when so many of her votes were long time AMP members and party leadership).

The simple fact is, unless John Jay can go negative...he has nothing to say. Nothing to stand for. Nothing to offer. You can’t go negative against fingerguns. She’s like ligtreb Jr. She is as pure as you can get in this game without being delusional.

Now, I know you're not going to take MY word for this, so I'll invite DrLuis to comment on this article to state that he checked each and every primary voter in AMP for evidence of being a multi, as I'm told by more than one AMP member that he was the person given this task. If you don't trust me, you can surely trust him...he doesn't really even like me all that much, no way he would outright lie on my behalf.

Jay never had a shot in USWP, and fingerguns is basically a God in the Federalist claiming anything was 'rigged' there is silly. The battleground was the AMP, and he gave up there before things really got started by way of his inactivity.

The point of this article is to respond to John Jay personally, and publicly. I didn't cheat in this election, nor did fingerguns. She wouldn't, and I knew I didn't have to even consider it (I'm not going to lie and say there aren't cases in which I wouldn't, because nobody would believe me even if I did).

You lost because you didn't try, Jay. Your sense of entitlement made you lazy, and you lost before the election even began. Now, be a man and do what you know you should. You lost, drop out. If you had won and fingerguns was still on the ballot, you'd be demanding she drop off in the name of why won't you?

This, America, is the definition of a 'sore loser'. I lost more than one Presidential election before I won one, but I never sunk so low as to throw a tantrum and put the country in jeopardy. So, thanks for once again proving that you are the lowest of the low, Jay. Say hi to Navy for me while you're digging around down in the mud for your dignity.

To everyone else, I am, as always

Yours in Service,
~just another guy

At the time of publication, Jay and I were having a chat on IRC, this is what was said up to the moment I hit PUBLISH. I edited out the words that would get the article pulled..the were 'vulgar'.

Edit: Jay finally dropped after being smacked around by basically the entire country for the day...I'm going to leave this up to remind everyone what a load of bull this was, and how big a derp he always has been.

Haliman was always the best at being the worst, rainy.

logamac Day 1,871, 12:15

This is pathetic...

Thedillpickl Day 1,871, 12:18

It pains me to admit it but I have no reason to doubt Henry on this matter. Every point he said makes sense. Unless JJ comes up with a colossal explanation he will stink for months over this fubar.

Thanks for showing us how stupid YOU are George Griffin. You can't actually call out Pfeiffer on the facts because he is right so instead you try and hit him below the belt and make an abortion joke. Real classy man.

John Killah
John Killah Day 1,871, 12:29

I can back the claim about Dr Luis. As one of the admins on the AMP Forum, he asked me countless times to check things related to the election in the sake of making sure it was fair.

This is extortion plain and simple.

Civil  Anarchy
Civil Anarchy Day 1,871, 12:32

Blatantly unforgivable. John Jay would rather have the nation PTO'd than deal with the notion that people would prefer someone else as President instead of him. What a monumental ego.

LordRahl2 Day 1,871, 12:33

BR had an admin shitsanwich to deal with. I am not saying he dealt with it (well or at all) but it was still at least an excuse.

ligtreb Day 1,871, 12:33

If 3 of the 4 major parties endorsed my opponent, I'd drop out. And I know losing sucks, I've lost two presidential elections (as Vice President).

The PTO threat is the country's biggest problem.

George Armstrong Custer Day 1,871, 12:33

once again Pfeiffer demonstrating that charming personality we've all come to know and love.
and once again, the sonofabitch is right.
Unity is Unity. this month Unity is Fingerguns.
don't like it? get involved, get active, make the difference you'd like to see.

emdoublegee Day 1,871, 12:39

As the AMP Party President I checked with DLS, Haliman, and John Killah when I received complaints of multis/rigging. We removed 3 votes for not being in the party long enough and 1 for voting for someone not on the ballot. While there were some people with different IP's than they have used in the past, there wasn't any noticeable multis in the AMP election.

The AMP primaries were not rigged, FG was the candidate that the majority of the party voted for.

Devoid Day 1,871, 12:40

Sure is mad in here.

olivermellors Day 1,871, 12:44

to an outsider, this looks like an ad payed for by the committee to elect Ajay Bruno, especially this part:

"14:04 Pfeiffer Congress is stripping you of any authority you'll have if you end up President
14:05 Pfeiffer you will literally be the most hated and least effective President ever
14:05 Pfeiffer I'll let Haliman know he can pass over the crown"

Really??? If America elects a President, you and congress are going to make him despised and impotent? Who keeps saying that this is precisely what Henry likes to do/threaten?

You made some good points until that ending part, where you made some points but not really "good" ones.

kind regards

Fluffer, your tears..... so delicious.....

Anyway, so what if I win? What do you expect me to do? I am at the mercy of the Congress. I can make some positive change but those of you acting like it is the end of the world are either massive drama queen propagandists, totally clueless of how the political mechanics operate, or just are so angry at the thought that I might be elected President that you throw reason out the window.

I have stated everything I would LIKE to do in my platform.

I will say that Pfeiffer will not have a shred of power. I will not even hire him for janitorial services.

Pfeiffer. Day 2,265, 17:54

Commenting to remind you that you are still, in every way, a failure.

Dio Salaar Day 1,871, 12:57

I went through all the votes, counting ONLY fellow AMP Leadership and other people that I know personally. Fingerguns still won by over ten votes.

Artela Day 1,871, 13:04

Voted for great truths, and for Fingerguns, the officially elected UNITY candidate.

FetusBong Day 1,871, 13:33

"14:05 Pfeiffer I'll let Haliman know he can pass over the crown "

I chuckled.

Malpazar Day 1,871, 13:48

Realistically why would the federalists vote for him?

".despite losing the unity process that all the parties agreed to use"

I imagine you have a different definition of ALL than the rest of the world does. In spite of that, at the time I had made our endorsement, which reflected the overwhelming vote of our membership, and was thus in compliance with our Constitution, I had yet to be sent a PM by anybody in connection with the Unity process regarding who we voted to endorse or regarding who I was expected to endorse. So, as far as I was concerned, at the time I made our endorsement for John Jay, I had a 50:50 chance of getting it right.

It is bad enough that the Unity process is collusion and monopolistic on its face -- and goes against everything that Democracy stands for -- but when you don't even bother contacting sixth parties for their results and subsequently claim that they agreed to the process, that brings despicable to a whole new level.

Scrouch Day 1,871, 14:13

Vote Dio.


biaxident Day 1,871, 14:21

"He somehow thinks that I have the power to get the Federalist Party and the American Military Party to do whatever I want."


"I'm not sure why he thinks I can do these things, I know he has it in his head that I'm running multis to vote in the party primaries"

I suspect RGR to be Pfeiffer's multi as well.

Bucephalus92 Day 1,871, 14:25

Lysander STFU. There was no point to contact you, FG had already won 3 out of 5 possible endorsements aka the amount needed to secure the nomination. Do I need to explain simple math to you or do you understand why the results of one of the sixth parties were moot?

Thedillpickl Day 1,871, 14:36

Wonderful to see all the kids playing together nicely for a change.


Dr. Badd
Dr. Badd Day 1,871, 14:45

"Lysander STFU"

This means....if one gets the "win" of the small percentage (against the party's number of members) of people who vote in the primaries in the top 5 parties, there is no "need" to bother with the 6th parties primaries.

It's a rigged system. Add up the TOTAL number of people who actually voted for you in the primaries, and divide that by the number of party members in those parties. It is a SMALL percentage, and that is why everyone is screaming "elitism." That small percentage is leading the ENTIRE nation around by its nose when election day is over with this "unity" process.

Then, look at the ACTUAL votes you get. THOSE are the people who need the "voice" to chose also. It's a well known fact that there are MANY people who don't use/despise the meta game. That doesn't mean that they shouldn't count.

"Do I need to explain simple math to you...?"

Also...why feel the need to have a shadow congress as a threat to JJ? If RGR wins, you are already planning on impeaching him. That must mean that you think that there's a chance that JJ will then become the POTUS (with a second place win). Oh yeah, I forgot, JJ has a LARGE following in the non-meta area that you should be concerned about, right? (But, nevermind, that wasn't counted in this "unity" process)

Bucephalus92 Day 1,871, 14:58

Cool story bro, I'm not huge fan of the meta game, frankly I didn't register on a forum here or go on IRC for the first 3 years I played this game. But I'm also tired of the pointless bitching and moaning in the comment section by the same 3 people. If you dont like something then work to change it, trolling every article the "elitist's" write isn't going to gain you anything.

The last CP election debate centered on the reasoning of the two camps having to out cheat the other...

guess what I take from this is...meta game cheats rule!

morningblur Day 1,871, 16:37

Lysander Spooner II, I agree fully that the 6th parties were not even considered in the election process. While I understand that candidates don't need the 6th parties, it would at least give more of an appearance of unity if they at least pretended that we matter. But such is the way of the game. We in 6th parties mean nothing to candidates so that's exactly what they give us....nothing. While some in 6th parties get frustrated at this, I do not. It's not really the candidates doing it. Until the admin see fit to change the election process to a system where all parties can run candidates then 6th parties will continue to remain meaningless. Candidates from time to time will blow smoke up our collective asses to make us feel as if we have a voice, however that's all it is......smoke. The games elections will continue to revolve around the top 5. They always have and they always will.

Candor Day 1,871, 19:04

SColbert Day 1,871, 21:27

I am not here to say that fingerguns isn't the rightful Unit Candidate, because she is. The way in which 6th parties are treated in this process though is despicable. We are only useful to the establishment when they need their numbers boosted when a potential PTO is on the way. After that we are tossed aside.

I am here to say that things will change for 6th parties, and soon. When you need our help next time expect a more unified group of 6th parties. I will be working to change the way we are treated.

Change is coming, expect it.
