Well, after taking a look at a few campaign sites of popular people running for 08' in real life right now, I can safely say it would be good to have a "stance on the issues" page. Think like, a page where it shows Gant's personal veiws on all contreversial issues that need solving.

I love the slogan, Gerkuman! Once I have access to a copy of Microsoft Paint, on a computer with a mouse, I'll be getting on with the campaign. I'm free tommorow, so I'll have a go then...
Tsk, we're really going to have to work hard if the Weebl and Bob crew are helping Haggar. But we will win! TONIGHT WE WILL DINE IN...ERR... SOMEWHERE! Gant

Actually, the slogan would really work with RF's Gant line!

Gant: Remember Kids, Fool me once, shame on you... Fool me twice... You're DEAD.
Vote Gant 08
-Or didn't we make ourselves Clear?

At the end of every broadcast he does, Gant could be standing infront of the American flag and say some sort of line. Scary ones :F Then, the slogan comes up ^_^

Post subject:  Re: Press Conference

Nah, I think this is the wrong way to go.

Ten reasons why you should vote for Gant:

1. Gant ensures no taxes. Untill the end of the election, of course, but never mind that.

2. His Vice President is Manfred Von Karma. And there are one houndred reasons why he is awesome.

3. By electing Gant as president, he will ensure you that he will take care of all the other politicians. Voting for Gant means the end of the Parlement, and will get the worst of the bunch executed (which alone should make you vote for him!). Hell, let's just kill all of them. Just for the hell of it!

He will also not bother you with voting ever again, so relax. He'll take care of everything.

4. If you don't vote for him, you die.

5. Gant will ensure that the crime rates will be lowered. The way to achive this will obviously be to completely remove the laws themselves, and legalize the use of weaponry for all uses. Not poison, though. Poison is for sissies. Any kind of robbery or other situations where weapons are used, that does not end with at least one corpse, will be punished with death.

6. Gant will make the 2nd saturday in each month a National Swimming Day. The winner will be hailed as being awesome. Anyone who does not attend the event are executed. No excuses.

7. Gant is the perfect image on how a country should be run. Through harsh lessons, weapons, and lots of underhand tactics. Well, at least his opponent think it's underhand tactics. But then again, they die. Nobody cares about them.

8. Gant will equipt every household with a rocketlauncher. Everyone loves rocketlaunchers. Any home that does not include at least one type of explosive firearm will be destroyed by the police for lack of means for self defense. To train people for the worst, every day an undercover policeman will attack a random household in every state, which will have to defend their home ageanst this intruder. Tax cuts if there is no corpse left behind after the explosion. All assaults will be aired, live.

9. Jack Thomson will be killed, brutally. No questions asked. Execution will be shown live on television, and reaired every day at 8 PM.

10. Did I mention you'll die if you don't vote for him?

Once again it's worth pointing out that the judges for this are Capcom's community staff. The opinion of other gamers around the world is irrelevant here, and to be frank I don't think that an obvious Jack Thompson jab is really gonna impress them as much as everyone seems to think it would. It doesn't even have anything to do with Gant.

As far as the medium argument goes, as Wooster said, the main part of the judging will be from the "top 10 reasons" page, so the content of those reasons should be the focus of most efforts. That said, I think it would certainly help to show off some of our creative muscle, preferably in a flash video. Personally, they tend to look more well thought-out and impressive than most sprite comics. Unfortunately I don't know anything about Flash, so I wouldn't be able to help much there. Sadshoe

For the top ten reasons, swimming will certainly have to be used for one of them (perhaps Gant will launch a series of initiatives to install pools 'round the country to promote fitness?). His background in law enforcement is also a solid point. I also believe that something should be said of his planning and foresight (I mean, he devised a plan that granted him universal access to all investigations in the city for two years in the span of walking into his office and seeing Darke and Neil. Talk about fast thinking! It also shows that he's a man of action). He's certainly got the charisma needed for a public figure what with his clapping and friendly nicknames for everyone. Much more personable than a Bizarro Zangeif. And oh yeah, he's tough on crime: If you don't follow his brand of justice (i.e. vote for him), he'll just destroy you.

I think we should hold off on the smear campaign stuff until we figure out what other competition we're up against. There's going to be more than just Gant and Haggar in this race. All of Capcom's major communities will be represented. Actually Haggar's at a bit of a disadvantage, since it seems his finalized top 10 reasons are already out. It gives other groups a lot of time to work up good counterarguments. We should try and keep our ace ideas close to our collective vests.

Put this on Gamers Against Jack. They would be all over this.

My Reasons:

REASON 1:
Damon : I will abolish all reality television.
...
...
...
...
Damon : OR DIDN'T YOU HEAR ME?

REASON 2:
Gant : All men shall be paired up with a female mate. No *expletive* questions asked. Cheaters shall be shot on sight.
Larry : Sweet! I'm in!
Godot : One? Screw you old man.

REASON 3:
Damon : Coffee is free for all!
Godot : Jackpot! Now I'm no longer in debt to Starbucks!

REASON 4:
Damon : Manfred von Karma shall be my Vice-President. And we know how awesome he is.
Von Karma : You know it. *prepares taser* Or else!

REASON 5:
Damon : Swimming will be free for charge. Any pool demanding pay for their services shall be SEVERELY punished.
Ack : How?
Gant : They'll have to see me in a speedo.

REASON 6:
Gant : It's me bitches!

AGAINST OTHER CANDIDATES/PEOPLE:

John Kerry
Damon : Despite reports that John Kerry was wounded three times in Vietnam, it was revealed today that he was only wounded twice. So in other words, he's a pussy.

George Bush
Damon You know if I had a nickel for everytime Bush has brought up 9-11...
Gant : I could raise enough reward money to go catch Bin Laden!

Jack Thompson
Damon : If I am elected president, he is 100% certain to be killed. No matter how many soccer moms and asswipes I have to go through.

Author:  Mikker [ Mon May 07, 2007 11:44 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Press Conference

Status on certain events:

Discrimination

Damon : Yeah, I don't want to discriminate ageanst anyone, colour, religion.... doesn't matter.

Gant : As long as you vote for me, I won't kill you!

Damon : Except rappers. I don't like rappers. They die anyway.

Nuclear Policy

Damon : I am postponing all nuclear warfare untill I can protect my house from the radiation.

Gant : I ain't stupid!

High suicidal rates

Damon : Yeah, we need to get those down.

Gant : Emos are to be shot on sight.

Damon : See? No suicides!

Gant : Go me!

------------

Also, another reason why to vote for Gant:

Gant : If you ask me, I'll lend you five bucks!

Gant's stance on the issues:

Gregory Mr. Gant, America's prisons are filled to the brim, and this trend doesn't show any signs of stopping. How do you suggest we fix this problem?

Gant Why, that's simple! We just make all crimes punishable by death! That way, we'll have no need for prisons!

Gregory But....where will we keep them until their sentence is carried out?

Gant Who's going to wait? We'll just replace the defendant's chair with an electric chair!

Gregory But isn't that basically murder!?!

Damon Tell me, have you ever seen an electric chair in action?

Gregory Err......no?

Damon Would you like to see it first hand?

Gregory *Gulp* Well, it appears we've run out of time! Till' next time!



Yeah, I got bored....

Post subject:  Re: Press Conference

I'm sorry I haven't been able to put much work into this lately folks. It's crunch time at college and I've got a lot of projects to wrap up before I can focus on this entirely. But as an Update, here are the reasons I've compiled as of yet.

  1. Preliminaries against Phoenix - If Gant can do well in the Preliminaries for his party, he should do just as well in the final stage.
  2. Criminal Record - Gant's Karma is far from clean. Infact, it's very messy. How does he view this as a 'benifit' to the people. Or atleast how he side steps the question (Like a True Politician XD)
  3. Competition - How does Gant feel he's better suited for Presidency then other Capcom Nominies, IE Mike Haggar?
  4. Campaign Strategy - Gant has a plan to win the election. And that would by by any means readily available. Blackmail, offering not to kill the people who voted against him once he becomes president.
  5. Cabinate Members - If you're going to be president you need to have your team readily selected, and for all great reasons (Or in our case Highly Questionable ones)
  6. What's he going to do as President? - This is where we can go wild and free with stupid corrupt rules and regulations. I particularly like Mikker's idea with No Taxes, until the end of the election at least, and all the junk about rocket launchers and swimming days. There's a lot of material here, but we need our reasons in general right now.
  7. Career - Gant is the Chief of police. How in the world does that prepare him for a job in politics? Considering he "...devised a plan that granted him universal access to all investigations in the city for two years in the span of walking into his office and seeing Darke and Neil. Talk about fast thinking! It also shows that he's a man of action"


We still need 3 more reasons before we can start working on our script, and consequently our medium.

8. His peresona. Oh, come on! He's a loveable guy! And he's not even an idiot! What more could you possibly ask for?!

9. His exterior. He has made his own hairstyle known is one of the biggest hairdos ever, both literally anf figruatively. He spends alot of (the tax payer's) money on THE RIGHT CLOTHES - and that is important! And all his swimming has made him one of the best fit men since the day Presidents actually went to war themselves.

This is great so far, guys (and gals)! I wish I could help you anyway, but my english skills doesn't go that far enough. But if you need help with Flash, Illustrator or Photoshop editing, I can help ya! But now I wanna talk about this thing:

I've thought of something two days ago, and now I've even tried to evolve the idea. I thought I might share it with you guys before I think too overboard. Knock Knock

Am I able to request (and possibly post) a topic in the Berry Big Circus (or other) forum named "The Gant For President 2008 (crack) campaign"? I requested something similar in the Topic Limitations thread and it was ok'd, but I'll see how you think about this first. I should have mentioned it here from the beginning, but I was too selfish again. Von Karma
It's sorta an ad campaign, and will follow the routine of Darzie's Turnabout News. The rules are, you can post anything to help Gant to achieve his world domination or whatever, be it whether jokingly or seriously. You can post interviews, advertisements (be it either pictures, sprite comics or in "React with smileys" form) Gant can host his own talk shows (Dr. Gantophil or Damon Letterman anyone?), Gant could star in tv shows and et cetera et cetera, of course with the support of other characters. Just do anything to help Gant.
The purpose would be to feel free to campaign him (unofficially, don't need to be taken seriously) and we could even grab some ideas if they would show up. And I'm plenty sure that Gant will be a good character to play with. I mean, he has indeed taken over the "React with Smileys" thread. Dr. Grey

The cabinets Woosty started with are truly a great choice, it makes the campaign even more Pw universe-supportive. And speaking of campaign, what if we had a PW character as the campaign leader/moderator? A person who is responsible for the show and can keep you entertained anytime during the campaign. Here's my take:
It would be no other than... *drums*
Spoiler: SURPRISE SURPRISE
Image MOE!
He would make a great leader: He'll get you tired before even mentioning the president! Aha! Aha! Aha! Aha!
And Regina would make a great sidekick, she'll grab all the attention for herself.
If they'd really could get the spot, I don't know, but I know this is meant to be a joke. But they'll make a great head for the topic I requested. Oh, and I made the sprite edit, have lots of freetime Edgy Please say it sucks.

So, what do you think about my ideas? Ini Mimi If you people had plans for this already, so uh... I feel stupid. Edgeworth And I know the final votes are not in the community's hand, but I want to keep us in spirits and know that we're doing this.
