Don't advance this too fast. I still need to do my ad campaign and announce my nominee. I need to eat/study. Back in around 3 hours after half an hour.

The best person ever.  She should have won the Peace Prize.

What? No full control over children? You do realize that some of us have particular plans for those children.

Are any senate seats going to open up any time soon?  Failing that, could I get in as a lobbyist?

Or maybe I could get in as a judge by appealing to both the Machinators and the socialists.



Name:  The Techno-Utopians
Economic standing:  20%
Social Standing:  15%
Party Leader:  Theodore Ulten
Leader Information:  Theodore, Ted to his friends, was like many Trans-humanists, swept up in Vladamir's speeches and apparent interest in improving the human race.  But, as time went on, it became clear that the party was not being led to their ideals.  As it turned out, artificial organs did not make him one of them.  Still, he seemed to be their best hope for changing the future in their favor, so they stayed.  At least until the Senate was created and it became clear that he had a very Authoritarian streak.

It was at this point that Ted led a group to splinter off of the Machinators and create the Techno-Utopian party.  Charismatic and devoted to the cause, he quickly rallied support for the party from other technology oriented groups, expanding the party well beyond the relatively small trans-humanist movement.

General Information:  The Techno-Utopian party is devoted to improving human life through the use of technology.  From life extending replacement parts, to towering space elevators, the party endorses any and all scientific advancement that could conceivably be used for the betterment of mankind.

On a smaller scale, the party supports education, enormous research grants, health care, and the freedom of information.

Ho Hum. Lobbyists. Never really thought about them. But, I know we're at the 8 party limit right now.

If they get in, they'll take at least a third of the (nominally) socialist party's electorate with them.

Have you considered the effects on ME?  If I'm going to be a villain, I have to be an actual threat, something I'm working on.  This would utterly destroy me.
Anyone in the techno-utopian party would have their artificial organs self-destruct before he could splinter so far off.  The Machinators don't want to help nor pretend to "improve" the human race, they want to "replace" the human race.

I'm to the right?  I never would have guessed.     :P   I thought my characters were rather far to the left, even if I was to the right.

Grangan, your idea of a party is terrible.

Sorry.

Not stupid, utterly insane. The Machinators are amusing, at least.

OBJ.? That's new to me, whats it stand for?

Also, personally i enjoy Machinators and their liveliness.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Yes, because joining a party gets all of your organs tagged with self destruct mechanisms.  That is not how parties work.  :P

Brandon, maybe that lower right side should be Libertarian instead of objectivist?  Objectivism is a philosophy, whereas Libertarianism is a form of government.

I was going to, but it uses that on the social freedom scale.

Not neccesarily by that method, but what I'm implying is that if you get deeply into Machinatorism, and then begin to think in an utterly different way, your lifespan will be severely limited, to the point at which you will not be able to form a new party.

No one wants a Worldwide Parliament.  :P

Hey I don't want a two-house parliamentary system either (though come to think of it the idea of commons and lords gels quite well with the Equllibrian party line) since its an RP we could push the boat out and try some crazy new system rather than just copying an existing style of government :P
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
