Debate Tuesday!!

Introducing, Debate Tuesday!! That's right, every Tuesday  the candy dates will answer five questions concerning their platforms!!  For the first three Tuesdays the candy dates will be asking the questions of each other.  After that, we will be answering YOUR questions!!
So make sure to ask us questions in the comments, and, no worries, we should be able to answer all of them during the course of the campaign!!

Make sure to visit all the Candy Dates!

Now, On to this Tuesday's questions, submitted by Christmas!!
What is your campaign slogan and why is that your slogan? If you don't have one, what would your slogan be if you made one?
Christmas: My campaign slogan is "death for Vacula" because obviously, Vaculas are the worst thing ever.
Arty: My Campaign Slogan is “Keep Blogville Fun”. I love hosting parties, dances and contests (you might be able to tell that from the rest of my answers ;-)
 Lexi: I haven't decided yet. Slogans are so limiting. I want options, don't you? But if I had to chose one right now perhaps Peace Be with You would be fitting.

If you become mayor, how will you announce it on your blog?
Christmas: I will do a long post about how grateful I am to Blogville for their support and I will give my mommy a big slobbery kiss on the face for being my awesome assistant and always supporting me.
Arty: After I thank all of Blogville for their support, I hope to host an Inaugural Ball. In fact, no matter who wins, I will most likely have a big pawty of the winners choice!!

Lexi: Fireworks. Definitely, fireworks. The fireworks may even have my face in them. I'll have to work on that - or work on Dad to work on that.

How will you advertise your run for mayor and will you do it alone or recruit others?
Christmas: Around my blog, I like to post fun campaign posters. The ladies love my handsome hound dog face! Oh, and I've actually recruited my pal Oreo as my campaign manager.
Arty: I have a great team I am working with Mabel (from the Idaho Pug Ranch), my Campaign Manager and my brother Jakey is my Press Secredude! I hope to be on at least one talk show (I hope my running mates will join me, but more info on that later!). Dory has promised me at least 2 days a week of Blog-Air time so anything is possible!

Lexi: I have posted my platform and have started posting some of the very best reasons to Vote for Lexi! on my own blog. I wanted Mom to hang posters around our neighborhood but she said that wouldn't help. It is early in the race, and I am still weighing my options for my team. There are so many good bloggers/friends out there, I must choose wisely.

What will you do about the tree rats and Vaculas that are ruining our country?
Christmas: I will send out a notice to all tree rats that they must stay in their trees so we won't have to chase them back up the trees 87 times a day! Oh, and about the Vaculas? I think if our police squad here in Blogville is strong enough, they can help destroy all Vaculas.
Arty: If I become Mayor, one of the first groups I will form will be a Tree Rat S.W.A.T. Team. We have a definite Squirrel Cartel problem that needs to be addressed! I agree with Christmas and, as a Junior Police Officer,  I can assure Blogville we will keep the Vacula problems to a minimum!

Lexi: Tree rats? I don't think we have any of those around here, unless you are referring to those cute, cuddly squirrels that populate my backwoods area. I will listen to my future constituents about what they want done, if anything. I support vacuums' right to come out of the closet. Can't we all live in harmony?

How will you get Blogville members involved? What events/activities would you plan in Blogville?
Christmas: Every three months, I think I would do a seasonal post where every Blogville member that wanted to participate could send in a photo of them enjoying that season and we would share it in one big post.
Arty: I am very lucky that my Mama can do the Photoshops really good, and my brother Jakey is teaching me lots about Pizap and PicMonkey. I hope to have a few campaign events. Right now, Dory and I are helping Mama organize the B.A.R.. We hope to have a BBQ this summer, and of course, the Summer Olympics are coming up!!

Lexi: I think we could all go on trips together. We have already tried digging tunnels, and that didn't work really well; instead, we could use big boats to visit across the oceans and do fun cruise things on the way.

Awesome answers all round. This is going to be a tough choice.
Toodle pip!

Mara said...

Oh now, this will be difficult. Miss Oswin and myself are very divided on who to vote for, but Brom has a front-runner already, agreeing with everything Lexi had to say. Heia Lexi!!

Hmmmm a strong start... some good arguments for different things from each of the candy dates - therefore, like we are facing here in Scotland (May 5th elections), these debates are going to be important and whilst they may not sway us from our own criteria, they will cast the net a little wider and that can only be for the good! Hugs and wags YAM-aunty xxx

Emma said...

I'm glad your debates are civilized, unlike the human ones.

Jeanne Pursell said...

Casey said...

Oh, some grreat questions and answers! But... Lexi, pro-tree rat AND pro-Vacula??? You need to work on your anti-crime platform!

Sandra said...

i love all the answers which means this will be a close race.. i have an idea, the losers can become president and vice president of the USA... because you are all so much better than what we have to vote on

Tails Around the Ranch said...

Mom is so tired of all the political talk on the TV, all day long. These debates are going to be so much more interesting - they already are. We have to meet Lexie, but we bet you would all do a great job.

Lone Star Cats said...

Ok, I got some questuns for all y'all.

1. What are your opinion on cats? Friends, foes, or supreme masters??
2. Are you planning anything to get our hoomans to share more of their food? Specifically of da MEATZ variety, but really anything (eggcept for vegetables which I has heard some peeples ackshually eat).
3. Do you support the idea of offishually changing Saturday to "Caturday?"

Ok, I's off to go hunt for some more food and lick my furs into place, but I'll be back wif more questuns.

Whitley Westie said...

I like da idea of more pawties and dances!

Millie and Walter said...

That was a very informative debate. We know it will be more enjoyable to follow the Blogville elections over the people elections.

Oreo said...
