    Jefferson High Student Council elections - 2013
    // campaign blurb
    Jefferson High School is a northern New York, nationally acclaimed, school in the International Baccalaureate program. The school is noted for its diversity of students, programs, and high academic standards. The school is also host to yearly student council elections which are noted even in the local media. The students have a total of five parties to choose from. The incumbent Progressive Democrats are being called out for the failed handling of a local carnival, but otherwise are popular with upperclassmen. The Jefferson Conservatives are a moderate conservative party which has been out of power for five years and hoping to show that moderate policies can lead the students to sucess. Walden is a left-leaning libertarian party which supports community involvement and social inclusion. The Christian Democrats are a controversial party which obtained a seat on the council for the first time last year and pushed for the removal of the Gay-Straight Alliance Club and tried to ban public displays of affection. Finally, the Objectivist Movement is a group of students who are influenced by Ayn Rand and hope to finally gain a seat on the student council. Which party will make waves in a exciting election year?

  2. Hey Hamish are you actually gonna make this, it woudl be aweesome!!!

    Some opinions, Justin Trudeau isn't in the same class as the progressives in that class, he'd be more in line with Barack Obama or centrsits. Muclair would be with Hollande and such. Also Tony Blair wouldn't be with them either, he's a notorious third-way centrist who, as a Progressive/Socialist like me, repulses me and is a centrist, should be with Obama in the Centrist Party. Thats also something else that we've seen in these scenarios that people always group Merkel/Cameron/Obama with each other, more or less they are actually not the same. The Party you have there is a center-right, progressive conservative, classical liberal party. Take out Obama and make a "Liberal Future" Party of Obama, Clinton (either), Trudeau, Clegg, and Blair.

    The "right alliance" maybe wouldn't be the name Paul Ryan would campaign on, take Ryan and put him in that Party with the Cameron/Merkel thing. Putin and Benny should be put with that Party too I guess, although theyd be more on the right wing of it, although they are the same.

    OTHERWISE VERY GOOD :D can't wait!
