E-president for cyberspace?

Updated on November 9, 2012

We should have an e-president for cyberspace...someone who would over promise and under deliver...just like in the real world!

Someone who would make promises to clean up spam, keep idiots off of mics when gaming online and inflict harsher (if any) penalties for people who hack, send viruses to others online or teabag people on Halo...then keep none of them. Someone who will make sure when you're talking to a woman online...it's really a woman, and not some big fat greasy nasty guy living in his mom's basements eating tacos and burritos all day. They would also promise to make all porn free...that is just until they got into office, then they would jack up the prices and blame it on the the price per barrel...or something like that.

Their fundraising campaigns could consist of ad banners all over webpages, instant messages filled with all those cute (and very annoying) emoticons and they could interrupt our multiplayer matches and our porn searches with their speeches (lies) to entice people to vote for them. They could use that cool internet/text lingo all the kids are using nowadays to connect and stay fresh...they could say something like , "Don't vote for that noob, he's a boob LOL...vote 4 me because I <3 U...BRB". They could have their own channels on YouTube to spread their nonsense...like FoxNews "fair and balanced" bull dooty!

We could also have political alliances, similar to console fanboys...we'll have the Xboxers and the PS3ers which would be our Democrats and Republicans...the PCers could be the Independent Party. You could cast your vote for the candidate of your choice by using "Like" buttons...which would totally eliminate any hanging chads.

Hmm...

You know what...thinking about it...let's keep politics out of the internet altogether...move along, there's nothing to see here!

      @Baby Ruthie...IGN...really...that would be like putting Bush back in office...either one, it doesn't matter, they're both bad!

      IGN.com for president 2012! Already got the messed up rating system...promises without delivery, maybe a few of your other criteria, too. LOL like corporate funding and rampant fanboyism.

      John thank you very much for the support. Also, I totally agree with you, it would be just as bad as politics are in real life.

      Damn, that was a hilarious idea and it's very inspirational! Obviously it wouldn't work, and no doubt we'd have dossers like Machinima or RayWilliamJohnson as the Presidents of Ecksbawks. Speaking of Ecksbawks Kid, he would probably be the Christ figure of the 360 religion. Oh please don't make it happen....

      Voted up, hilarious, awesomes and interesting! Also liking on FB to prove to the world why politics isn't fun in the slightest. Even on 'tinternet.
