What is candidate Airboy's position on Voluntary Statutory Rape? Not for me mind you.... for somebody else..... That I know. Closely. But not intimately. Shouldn't a person be given a 6th chance?

Airboy believes that females are on average smaller and physically weaker than males.  Airboy also strongly supports the 2nd Amendment and is pursuing the endorsement of the gun nuts.  Randomly armed females will encourage males to keep unwanted attention to themselves or suffer from lead poisoning. 

Unfortunately, Airboy thinks that silver bullets are necessary to harm witches since lead is a "base metal" and witches are "base creatures."  Enough lead consumption by an individual witch may give them another witch level and stronger powers.  Regretfully, silver rounds are rare and expensive.  Airboy advises caution in adding lead to the diet of your average witch.

Acceptably noncommittal. I approve this position.

How do you decide what to have a speech or an ad about in an individual State?  There are a couple of key points.

First, a campaign HQ gives you a lot more information in a State on what is important.  If you have the stamina to give a speech, you can see what appeals to Dems, Independents, and Witch Haters.  But without the stamina to give a speech, you cannot access this information.  The same information on what appeals in a speech can be directly used in an advertisement.  However, if you launch very expensive TV ads ($450,000 a pop plus a weekly charge) you also gain a national reputation on an issue.  This can backfire.  For example, if I give speeches on securing the borders or have TV ads that strengthens my position nationally. 

On some issues there is little opposition to the issue (drought relief, against Zika, for farm assistance) but other issues cause you to lose ground in other States.  For example, religious freedom and securing the borders appeals in most States both to Independents and to Repubs.  But both securing the border and religious freedom will cost you in California.

Attached are a couple of screen shots in different States about different issues.  Note that Zika is very important in Florida. 

Airboy's advertisements are strongly against Zika which helps in the Atlantic & Gulf Coast States - especially Florida.  It is not a negative anywhere. 

For some reason Airboy's ads suggest that Zika is a Witch Borne Disease caused by broomstick flights.

See Airboy's advertisement against witch-caused illness.

Week 6 - A Cash Bonanza!

I raised money in California and flew to where there was a "?" symbol in a State.  This can cause good or bad things to happen.  What happened this time is I found a donor who gave me $1 Million!!

The Witch came out for Child Sacrifice via luring children to Gingerbread Houses. 
Airboy came out for securing the Borders against Witches.

Week 7:
On Week 7 the Witch had to rest to digest her last meal.  I hired a speech writer which makes my talks even more effective.  I then gave two campaign speeches.

Hillary! did not give any speeches, get any endorsements, place any ads, or build any structures.  She just flew around the country on Broomstick 1.  Children and dogs hid everywhere she touched down.  Cats flocked to her. 

A wiki-leak disclosed that one member of the press emailed the Hillary! campaign that "Hillary has so many cats around her she seems to be a 40 year old spinster.  Oops I forgot that is the state of her "relationship" with Bill.  My bad."

I'm not sure I've ever lost a Political Game normal election, but it's always pretty close. (Whereas on Democracy 3 I tend to overwhelm the other party so hard in the election that it effectively ceases to exist by the end of my run. I should however note that this typically involves making the US a socialist state in effect, a result that offends my very core.  :buck2: )

Mainly I go the route Airboy is going: I make sure key states (I include Illinois) have beefed up HQs early -- Republicans have a bit of an advantage here in a way because the key states tend to be Dem so we can concentrate force easily where it makes the most difference for us and against the opposition. I tend to give speeches a lot and parse my ads carefully for effect. I build my campaign platform on planks everyone approves or disapproves of; by the time I'm done, those are the key issues of the election. I never fight dirty. Unlike Airboy, I rarely go for the special interest groups, but not because I don't want to -- I just usually end up focusing elsewhere enough I rarely get any. (I think the last time I played, a few years ago, the Democrats picked up the NRA support!  :2funny: )

Week 8:

Gun Nuts Support Airboy.  Airboy warns them to use Silver bullets.  Airboy also comes out against broomstick borne disease.  The witch gets an endorsement from the pro-child sacrifice league.  Things are going Airboy's way.

Gun Nuts for Airboy


Warnings Air Against Witch Borne Disease

The Witch came out in support of "green jobs."  Green....... Wicked Witches from the Wizard of Oz.  Toads & Lizards are prime witch ingredients. 
OK - got it.

News Analysis:

The "news" got one thing right - Don't mess with Airboy.
But they compared me to a "hungry cougar" and not "an experienced witch hunter."

Week 10:
Airboy accomplished a lot.  Endorsement from the Tea Party.  An HQ.  Fund raisers in New York and Texas.  Then traveled to a "?" symbol and got a "time waster" that ended my turn.  But I arrived with my last bit of stamina so this was no big loss.  The Witch flew around on Broomstick 1 looking for Children and Puppies.  Fortunately, the kids and the puppies all made their "hide in shadows" rolls and survived.

Week 11:
I give two speeches on my strongest topic: Fighting ISIS.  Nobody likes ISIS and talking about it raises the prominence of the issue.

Hillary is "pro-ISIS" which came as a surprise.  But, it ends up that ISIS is a front for evil Djinn from the Middle-East.  The Djinn lord made a pact with the Witches.  Airboy realizes this and is warning America of how ISIS increases the Witch Threat to the American Dream.

An allied group has started a protest campaign wherever Broomstick 1 lands for "Child Lives Matter."  They also warn children (and dogs) not to take cookies from strangers.
