You got 2 years more... make plans.

Mark, you doing any volunteer firefighting, or any other volunteer work these days?

What's really funny is that Denis and I think he can win regardless of that handicap.  It's the antipolitical folks naysaying, cause they have such high standards of who is electable and who isn't elect.

Seth,  We should be listening to them.  They have such a great track record of success.

Dude, they wouldn't even need an ad. It would be nationwide news: "Convicted Murderer and Freestater Runs for Office."

Suggesting Mark does something like this really makes Denis and Seth look more and more like agents provocateurs.

If the anti-jacking witch lady can win her primary against an ancient incumbent, I think Mark would stand a fine chance running for office.

The whole masturbation thing seemingly only came out after she was elected.

Right, but they would put some crap in the ad like "You dont want a MURDERER elected to public office being around your CHILDREN......................... do you?" - Paid for by so and so statist asshole running against Mark Edgington.
If he's known by hundreds of people in the town as a volunteer firefighter, or as the guy who volunteers at the food pantry, etc, and they already know about his past, then that issue is neutralized, and the attacker comes off as a dick. Really.

OTOH, an otherwise nice, intelligent, friendly guy like Andrew C., who is unfortunately mostly known (rightly or wrongly) for being "part of those pot protests"... well, we saw what happened. Fortunately, Andrew has what it takes to reach out and connect with people over the next 2 years. They won't be able to paint him with that brush again.

Even if he "has a chance," it practically invites people who hate him and the Free State Project to advertise his past, and I'm not sure that's good for anyone (which is not to say it isn't up to him.)

Maybe you didn't intend it, but it sounded kinda like "People will elect a convicted murderer, but they won't elect someone implied to be a pothead protester."

I don't understand what he's getting at either, especially since Mark is involved in FTL and therefore linked to "those evil Keene freak-staters".

Look, everything I said about the negative press Mark would get if he ran for office was for HIS possible benefit, not really the FSP. If he wants to run for some office and possibly get his name dragged through the mud, I say go for it. Mark would make a great mayor or congressman in my opinoin. Just be prepared for the onslaught of scumbags that would come out of the woodwork to slander him. If anyone thinks that wouldnt be the case, I'd say they are INCREDIBLY naive to the world of dirty politics. Just my opinion, take it or leave it. Seems just mentioning the idea of the consequences on here  gets some people on the defensive, ie "wtf do they know?"

LOLz.  Reminds me of the disclaimer at the beginning of South Park:

Quote from: South Park Disclaimer

Seriously, when I get out to NH, im gonna run as a full on statist asshat, complete with pro seatbelt legislation, pro-prohibition, pro-property tax increase, anti-freedom nazi. I'll do it in a place like Keene or something similar where that message has the best chance of winning. Then, if I win, my acceptance speech will consist of little more than "HAAA!!! GOTCHA BITCHES!!!! I LIED MY ASS OFF ABOUT EVERYTHING I RAN ON. HAVE FUN DEALING WITH ME FOR THE NEXT 2 YRS!!!"

Y'all still are not getting it.
These are not politicians you see on TV ads.
These are people who you know in person.
If I know Mark, because I've worked with him at the animal shelter, or my Aunt Gracie has, or we had a BBQ in Mark's back yard over the summer, or at the festival the town library puts on, or I always see him at the corner store, or at the kids' soccer practice, and so on and on and on... I know him.

Now any negative advertising is pointless.

Contrast: Neither I nor anybody else knows who "Sam Dodson" is. Never seen him at the places listed above. First I hear of him, he's on the front page of the paper in handcuffs.

Any negative information from that point forward, people are disposed to believe.
