The time is upon us, to once again, select a president of Superherohype. This person will be your representative. They will speak for you. So choose wisely.

Below are the final three speeches of our candidates:

DBella said:
Good day to my fellow Hypesters.

Ahh speeches... When Matt told me I had to write a speech for this Hype Election, I admit I wasn't thrilled. To me, speeches are for the suits and I am not that. I'm just one of you who happened to be thrusted into this position by those who believe in me. To turn my back on them, on you, would be cowardly and irresponsible. When you go to the polls tomorrow, I hope you keep in mind that I am a poster first and foremost, being President wouldn't change that or change who I am.

Now... I'm sure my fellow candidates will have plenty to say about what they will offer as President, and make no mistake they are good candidates... I mean, it would be a sucky election if they were hopeless, right?

I'm not going to run them down because both have put time into the Hype and brought a lot of fun to the place. So what do I, Bella, have to offer? I offer a sense of fun and I accept you for you who you are; be you the "cool cats" of Community like Jag and Wil or the mighty Empress Dew or like the forever-bullied JAL or Ghostrider87, I will still treat you the same as I do the aforementioned posters. If you are a newb or an oldbie I will treat you as I find you; with friendship and respect. One thing I hate is labels, and the idea of someone's views being seen as worthless simply because they are new or that I (or those debating with them) don't agree with his/her views, is wrong. Or labeling someone a loser because that person has been here 5 years, that's not right. Treat others as you want to be treated, that is my belief and that of those who support me. We are all part of the Hype family regardless of join dates or post counts and what makes this place wonderful is it's diversity.

There is no candidate who believes more in equality and women's right than a Woman Candidate and that candidate is DBella.

"Only one man in a thousand is a leader of men -- the other 999 follow women." - Groucho Marx

Follow THIS woman (DBella) and I will inspire you to GREATNESS.

"Superior leaders get things done with very little motion. They impart instruction not through many words, but through a few deeds. They keep informed about everything but interfere hardly at all. They are catalysts, and though things would not get done as well if they were not there, when they succeed they take no credit. And, because they take no credit, credit never leaves them." - Lao Tzu

So in closing, I will say that a vote for DBella/Hunter is a vote for a judgement-free presidency and a fun place for all!

Ladies, gentlemen, and TEDDYs of the Hype. I'm a humble poster. When I registered back in 05 all I wanted was to talk about Batman Begins, but for whatever reason, I've stayed beyond the movie's release. I've become part of this community. One of you. Yes, even you in the back. I never dreamed of running for President, I was content bringing you the news, not being the news. But today, I do want to be your President. Why? Partly because I don't wanna get voted off Survivor, but mostly because I love you guys, and I think I'd make a purdy great President. No more smear campaigns, Erz and Bella are both purdy great too. And is Bella is just plain purdy. (sorry Erz) I trust you the Hypester, to make the right choice, whatever that may be. But if you choose me, that'd be totally rad. :up:

Addressing the Accusations
I was voted out 4-3, not exactly like my whole team didn't want me. Also said poster who made this, was also a player who was booted out Day 1. Hypocrisy?

I wasn't elected, how could I enforce any of these promises as just a regular poster?

Why Vote for Me not Mee?
Let's take a look of how serious the other tribes are.
My administration was the first to do a campaign thread. Bella and Mee started theres hours later after mine.
My debate was more indepth and called for change while there's were everything is fine.
I have ads in signatures such as Daisy, Noesbleed & Supermonkey, etc.

We have more clever ads against our opponents as well as just more sheer number ads for us.

Let's look at my opponents, no unity or loyalty. You have members of each team that haven't contributed.
Their ads are especially sophomoric, mickey mouse even.
While both teams are playing to win, they are careful not to piss off anyone. We have nothing to lose so we can be bolder with our campaign.

The choice is clear. Erzengel/Brutal 2007.

Thank you everyone for you support and votes.

Vote away, ladies and gentlemen. The choice is now in your hands.

Brutal and I have had a dominant showing in all 3 campaign threads as well as the debate thread.

Erz's Thread/Mee's Thread/Bella's Thread/Debate Thread
Erz - 52 / 10 / 31 / 26 = 119 Posts
Brutal - 23 / 2 / 4 / 14 = 43 Posts
Mee - 30 / 20 / 3 / 8 = 61 Posts
X-Chick - 5 / 7 / 0 / 0 = 12 Posts
DBella - 6 / 6 / 8 / 8 = 28 Posts
Hunter Rider - 9 / 0 / 26 / 0 = 35 Posts

That's a desire to win and not just rely on popularity. :up:
Also means that you really didn't have a staff so you had to do it all yourself.

We had Toven and Noesbleed doing youtube and pics.

Had Daisy and Supermonkey doing campaigning.

I had people supporting me, but I still chose to get involved. :up:

Any good leader is able to delegate and put trust in the people they work with. :cwink:
Nice way of saying "too busy".
Hunter and Bella FTW!!!

Elect me next year-I will give you all candy treats
Ew, hunter's a stinkin' Admin now. :down
You and Hunter? Who's stepping down?
Ha. I'm sure they were taken in by campaigning and nothing to do on popularity. :cwink:

...but that is what all elections are based on, whether it is here on The Hype or the President of the United States...that is why they have the "popular vote"?
Just noting that some people put more effort into this than others and are more apt to reaping the rewards. :o
Erz constant slur presence was higher than mine and Bella's, it's true.

It has begun.
I voted, but it was for Bella. Not that hunter guy.
Fire no loyalty after being my vp running mate? :(
