I am above such petty attacks. Destroying the reputations of others is not the Federation’s way.

I will run not against what my opposition represents. I will instead run on that which I myself represent.

Freedom, peace, order, tolerance, diversity. These are the core ideals of the Western Federation. These are what I represent, what I will seek to establish as the rule of the land on Know Your Meme.

I will not seek the election by making my opponents out as various kinds of evil. That is simply not the way.

Tell me, fellow forum-goers of this great site of KYM.

Tell me, what do you want your president to do? Do you want him to rule with an iron fist, and ban things that he wishes to ban? Do you want him to endorse acts that are designed to cause anger? Do you want him to get involved beyond his station as the government, and become involved with your personal jimmies?

Or do you want him to live, and let live? Do you want him to tolerate your actions, thoughts, and opinions, and let you post as you will? Do you want things kept the way they are, save for a loving president to watch over you, and defend you from hatred when he is needed?

I know I do.

Vote for me. Vote for tolerance.

Through the pronz of the internet he speaks to me, his chosen,

I will take what is mine by right,

Not the vastness of the internet,

We are the Meme Party, and will trample all who stand in our way.

“A Poem for Candidates” by Alejandro
All of you trying
To rustle our jimmies,
Where do you get off
Giving a fight?
------------------------------
You think we’re lying
While we’re up here grinning
But you just scoff
And blow out our light.
------------------------------
KYM forums
Are no place for ninnies
So leave if you can’t
Make up your minds.
------------------------------
Don’t be down in the dumps
We’ll unrustle some jimmies
And requests we might grant
Will be kind.
------------------------------
So don’t be down
Don’t feel blue
And we can unrustle
Your jimmies for you.

Thank you.

What’s there to debate?
Do you want one egotistical user to claim superiority over you, or another?
Do you wish to jump on a bandwagon?
That’s what we’re all doing. Finding a figurehead who can’t contain their personality within one person, and then attatching them to a popular trend. Jimmies, Homestuck, MLP, Gamers, they’re all the same.
So, I urge you to vote for myself, because I am an egotistical nutcase who is on a bandwagon. Who is self aware. And completely apathetic.
Also, I tend to confuse people with meta-posting while I wait for opportunities to debate people. Where are you ideals, people. I can’t get by with the low level-jimmy rustling that I’ve been doing. Feed me.

Apr 24, 2012 at 09:57PM EDT

Freinds, Enemies, Bronies lend me your ears!
I am here to support Alejandro in his efforts to preserve the Jimmy Party. I cannot see why anyone here would object to us. We are not here to hate, or negkarm, or anything. We are here to simply unrustle jimmies. Let me tell you all a little anecdote to make you see the importance of our party.

Once upon a time there was an ugly barnacle.
He was so ugly everyone died.
But then, Me, Alejandro, Dr. Meme, BSoD, Arex, and Tai Kamiya went to see him.
He was clinically depressed.
Felt that he was the cause of all wrong.
He was rustled.
But the 6 of us talked to him.
We restored his Jimmies to the natural state.
Since we unrustled him, everyone came back from the grave.
And that ugly barnacle,
well the fish down in fishville say
that ugly barnacles jimmies unrustled everyones that day.
FIN

Zacharias, we have to speak the truth. I’m in charge here for now. Yes Alejandro, I’m not absent.

MDFification has certainly attempted to destroy our reputations in the application thread.

“If you are so focused on unrustling jimmies then why are you rustled?”

We aren’t even rustled. Well I did get rustled before, but now I won’t. We reduce the rustling. We also rustle rustlers, giving them a taste of their own medicine. I hear some are sick of all the talk of ‘jimmies’ and ‘rustling’ so I will later talk differently if someone proposes now.

And as for the Homestuck, Brony and Cat parties, what non-themed goals do you have?

This debate also needs a channel on IRC. Just sayin…

You should vote for me because… wait…

Hold on.

(Gets cue cards)

I believe that tapioca… Wait no, that’s my grocery list.

Ah, here we are.

AHEM!

You see, we need to bring this community together. And how many of you have done that? A very small number. I on the other hand have done us the greatest accomplishment of bringing us together, and that was by creating the family portrait thread.

We’ve become divided, but I showed all of you that we’re one community in this together. Why not vote for the guy who did that? The one that represented us as a family of brothers and sisters that care for one another?

I know I’d like someone like that.

(Paid for by the Homestuck Party.)

I cordially invite my opposition to engage me in a political rap battle of epic proportions to decide who is the Iron Candidate.

The winner will then have a cap popped in his ass, regardless, securing failure for all sides.

You want stupid reasoning!? Well there’s plenty of stupid reasoning in MY PAAAAAAAANTS, BEEYATCH!

Apr 25, 2012 at 01:38AM EDT

This thread should not be about how we see each other, or what we want others to believe of each other. It should be about who we are, what we represent.

It should be about showing the voters our character, our worldview. It should be about presenting ourselves in the most favorable light possible, not putting each other in as negative a light as possible.

This is our chance, Know Your Meme, to break free of the typical political bickering and mud throwing. Here, now, we can change everything.

I promise that I will not run a campaign of smears against my rivals. I will simply state the facts about myself and my beliefs. I will stand for the idea that we should all see each other as equals while the rest do their best to destroy each other.

I will bring civility to politics. I will bring hope to the Voters. I will bring peace to this site.

I am Thomas Nair, and I approve this message. For the Federation!

“This is our chance, Know Your Meme, to break free of the typical political bickering and mud throwing. Here, now, we can change everything.”

If that’s really your message, KYM’s going to just not care. Considering your reputation, no one would join you. Your extreme hate for Japanese media and ponies would create the illusion that your message is a lie. Heck, maybe it is.

Just don’t make your own party. Wait for some wise user to create a party with your message and hop on it. If warcraftnerd made his own party, would you join it?

And to me, BSoD was that wise user, the one who has created The Jimmy Party.

Two issues with your post:

  1. Warcraftnerd has been hit by the banhammer so many times it isn’t funny.
  2. No party yet created shares my views.

Also, do you want me to start signing every post I make with a “/sincerity”? I’d gladly do that, if it’d make you feel better.

Derpy Supreme is in the Animu Party

Notice anything? Like how they’re all bronies?

You people don’t know how to destroy a reputation.
It’s because there really isn’t an opportunity here. Nobody’s talking about their true beliefs, so there’s no consequence to their arguments.
So in reality, this thread is just demonstrating users prejudgement on candidates existent reputation. This doesn’t strike me as a particularly beneficial way to secure a campaign.
The only thing we can do is mock each others policies. I shall proceed to do so. There is nothing that can defend your jimmies. Trusting others to will not reduce rustling. Your jimmies are dependent on your mindset, and what rustles them is unique to every individual.Some are rustled by every instance of MLP fandom. How would you unrustle them? Some are rustled by the very existence of rule 34, regardless of whether or not it enters the sight. How would you unrustle them? Still others are rustled by what they deem cancer, and in many cases the concept of jimmies is enough to cause them to become rustled. How on Earth do you hope to unrustle them?
Behind the rhetoric, all parties that have promised anything have only succeeded in setting themselves up for disappointing their voters.
Our policy is literally nothing. Who are we to tell you what to do? You will have to fend for yourself throughout the entirety of your time on the net, and we hope to allow you to attempt to do so.

@Other parties

The gaming party may not be the most popular party at this point, but i am positive it will get better. while other parties such as bronies and homestuck are based around one thing, the gaming community includes everything in the world of gaming (and considering how many different video games there are out there, it’s saying alot). We were made by the people, for the people. so we are against all things all thing evil

we shall destroy all the trolls

Oh and we have tea

I don’t want to fight against my own team, as i don’t want to waste my time fighting a battle i have no hope winning. And as far as i’m concerned, my party is a team (at least in my eyes). I don’t care whether other people see it differently, because i will always stick by this party, no matter if i become the leader or not. I will always be supporting and helping this party and it’s upcoming leader until the end.
