k Darkie;)

A=Associated
S=Student
B=Body

It is a student controlled group.
I am running for Vice President, what I do is help out the president/ my running partner. Also I help organize and inform the Principals on ideas, news, and general info. I am running against 4 people and will have a slight advantage over them considering my friends are really good friends with the popular 6th graders who will spread the word of my greatness:D. Also I need to write a 150 letter to my principal that will state my "vote-for -me" speech and added footnotes. I also need some cool graphical pics for my running posters and maybe a campaign slogan. Maybe you could make a cool picture darky since yuore so good at it:) Well I hope i explained everything and if you still have questions please ask them in a reply.

Well, just write what you plan to do. Show everyone that you are ambitious but not overly so, so that they won't think that you're lying.

That's about all I can come up with for now. :D

Anybody there? I have to send my letter in in 3 hours i need help. C'mon guys think about how much i have helped you. I have probably donated points to you through my foundation.

In three hours?:p;)lol

Well, I think you should introduce your speech by saying what the current situation is like, and how there is so much room for improvement. Use rhetorical questions, saying that something needs to be done. Then come in and say all your policies and what you intend to do. Finish up by saying that you're basically the perfect guy for the job, and will work hard to fulfill your promises and the school's needs as best you can;)

One thing I noticed in my high school ASB elections was that you have to be really popular to win LoL. But some helpful hints are to think of something cool and catchy for your name, so that people will remember you. And be funny in your speech. Just act comfortable and confident, but not arrogant. :)

Also, don't make it sound fake or like you're saying it to just impress people. They have to hear it in your voice that you are confident and collected, not scared or nervous. I suggest not using "big" words in your speech. I, being a 9th, know for a fact that using big words to a freshmen audience makes it sound fake. :p

LOL matt-windu:D

Here is my info for the voters pamphlet (There will be more when I give an oral speech.

Hello fellow students, my name is Kevin and I am running for your ASB vice president. Im not going to promise every single problem with the school will be solved, but I will promise that we will have a covered bike rack. A covered bike rack seems to be a big issue. When it rains the metal on the bikes rust and the bikes are practically ruined. Getting a covered bike rack would preserve bikes and make students as well as parents happy.
I will also promise that we will have a larger variety of interscholastic sports. My friends and I like the selections, but there are gaps that need to be filled. Sports such as football, baseball, soccer, and tennis would be great additions to the sports lineup.
I have gone to Mercer Island schools since pre-school and I am considered a leader, a good friend, a good student, and a good athlete. I can be serious, funny, or in the middle which allows me to interact with different types of people. So remember that voting for Kevin, is easier than thinking.

And my slogans are

Voting for Kevin
Is easier than thinking

If voting Kevin is wrong then dont be right(Im so original

And The Best way is K.J:)

Sound good but are those the only two things that you are going to change?

You need to broaden your subject's just a little more and then you will have a nice campaign.

I do know but I just found it funny that he didn't know.

Facism is the exact opposite of Communism. It involves Nationalism to a very high degree like the Nazi's had in Germany. People are encouraged to work for the country so that it becomes strong. It also involves usually one main figure head in power i.e Hitler. It is also racist as well so that the country is cleansed and becomes stronger

Here's a better a longer explanation Facism (http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~semp/facism.htm)
