2016 Election Roleplay in Election Play-by-Play Posted March 5, 2017 · Report reply Gov. Parish's Announcement At a rally in New Hampshire, "As I am watching the election cycle unfold, I have come to realize that the two party system in America has poisoned democracy. Both sides have polarized voters to the point where party lines are more important than governing. The time has come for a third party to help balance out the other two the same way the three branches of government balance each other. I have decided to drop out of the race for the Republican Party's nomination and to switch to the Linertarian ticket. Conservatism, Liberalism, they both have their merits. But at the end of the day, government's purpose is to serve the people, not obstruct their lives with large interference. George Washington warned against the influence of political parties, and in an ideal world, they wouldn't be necessary. But in the global-industrial reality of today, they are a necessary evil. A fresh perspective is needed in warshington. As you consider who you vote for this election year, consider this: are you comfortable with the same two parties doing the same thing for the next four years, or do you want real change of leadership. Vote libertarian this year. Vote Parish 2016." After the speech there was murmuring among the crowd, and the governor stayed behind taking questions and speaking with local constituents about his ideals and his political platform.
