Of course I'd rather be your vice for the next four years, but I'm always willing to give that up to get you in office. Thank you for the honor!

Vote Kuriko!

I was with it until they said remove raiding. Raiding is a bit of a challenge yes, but without raiding there is no defending.

Definitely not the case, friend, but I suppose not everybody can see the value in voting for Candidate Kuriko.

She's really running for you and me! Vote for Kuriko for your own sake! (:

We can't and won't remove a game feature, we just don't see how electing a raider to the council that condemns raiders could be a good idea *cough*Catgirls*cough*

Kuriko - SC Author, Defender, and National Sovereignty

Postby Ostrovskiy » Thu Apr 02, 2020 1:11 pm

Kuriko wrote:Good day, my fellow World Assembly leaders. We come before you today asking for your vote, a vote which will choose the new WA Secretary-General. Kuriko is a top-ranked choice, and here's why.

A vote for Kuriko is a vote to end the General Assembly's dominance over our nations, and a return to national sovereignty. That is something I promise to do if you vote for me! I also promise to bring the Security Council back into prominence and activity, to eclipse the General Assembly.

We will once again spur activity within the Security Council, and work to bring new authors to the fore. The Security Council has long been the smaller of the two branches, and it's time to change that!! If elected, we will lessen the influence of the General Assembly and increase the influence of the Security Council.

We don't have catgirls to give out like the raiders, and we are not a leftist nation. We are a defender nation, an SC author, and a democratic loving kind despite our nations title and our Empress. A vote for Kuriko will see General Assembly resolutions affect only the authoring nations, so that it may continue to exist but will no longer impinge upon a nations sovereignty.

If elected we will also compose a yearly State of the World Assembly dispatch, in order to inform all WA nations of ongoing things. We will pledge to stamp out fascism and nazism once and for all, and work to end campaign spam within our hallowed halls. We will pledge to end the CCD nonsense and annoying recruitment telegrams to your nations.

If elected, the SC will no longer be just for Game Players! I will open it up to all, role players, sports players, card guild/infrastructure players, and any other quirks that are out there. The SC will rise in prominence and become much more active!

Vote Kuriko for a stronger Security Council!

Our latest TG campaign has gotten some negative responses from a few rude people, however, it was otherwise a smashing success, with tons of positive feedback and promised votes! Everybody needs to know the Kuriko is the candidate for them, promising WA reform that will benefit NS across the board!

We need to get a strong start on Round 3 of the elections in an hour or so, so if you have already voted, be sure to maintain your vote for Kuriko when it begins! Don't let up on voicing your support, folks!

VOTE KURIKO FOR WA GEN.-SEC!

There are people who believe the recent influx of Campaign TGs are annoying.

I will remind everyone that Campaign TGs can be blocked in settings, so if you do not want to see them you do not have to.

For Kuriko, how will the state of the WA and SC differ if you are elected versus if you are not elected?

As someone who is hard leftist and all about trans and LGBTQ rights, I stand behind Kuriko to guarantee national sovereignty.

My vote for Kuriko is to make sure that regions shall not be needlessly raided for the sake of fun of those who's only goal is to force their will onto others, raiding communities, forcing the native nations out, and breaking up said communities.

Apparently Kuriko's campaign machine is now resorting to brazen lies. I just received this telegram:

Attention, regions of the God-fearing and/or right-leaning persuasions!

In splitting your votes between the various minor right-leaning candidates, you are depriving nations of our kind from representation in the World Assembly! The greatest threat to us, at this moment, is the communist seizure of the WA. We must focus our efforts on the leading right-leaning candidate, who at this time is Kuriko!

If Kuriko gets into office, she will swing open the doors of the WA for every nation to participate in it. As most would agree, the WA has been abused by an entrenched class of elite delegates, and we wish to do a "draining of the swamp" of sorts. How getting Kuriko into office helps you:

+ Small regions and individual nations will be given a say and greater representation through public media exposure of the inner workings of the WA;
+ The Christian and Conservative lobbies will once again be able to participate in mainstream NS politics, along with every other previously oppressed minority group (ie, the monarchists, the roleplayers, Christian or Muslim, etc);
+ A strengthening of the Security Council will protect the relatively small regions of NS, which are primarily of the aforementioned minority groups;
+ A restoration of national sovereignty will take place. That is, we will work to make the WA less about shoving worthless legislation down your throat, and instead helping your nations develop, as a proper World Assembly should.

So, if you want to say NO to the class of nations that is now trying to pass this (https://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=482785&sid=d1a0df5413e8f9d77be575cf759113a2) as legitimate legislation, get behind Kuriko.

Otherwise, sit back and let the anarcho-communist in second place threaten the existence of our ideologies.

We are counting on everybody to support Kuriko, the only hope for proper World Assembly reform, and the restoration of democratic values. Please, take the time to read the dispatch below.

https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=1340062

I implore you all to vote for Kuriko here: https://www.nationstates.net/page=election

And, in case it was not already known, your votes will be wiped at the beginning of the General Election in about 24 hours. Be sure to renew your vote at the same link above.

God Bless Kuriko!

Kuriko endorsed that proposal. (If the approval has since been withdrawn, I have screenshots.) How can Couray then claim that Kuriko is opposed to it?
