    If Troy is correct, and the places don't get dished out anyway, it is possible to reduce its size.

    Good luck convincing the 10 or so people that have voted for themselves (and are their only vote) to vote for someone else.

    It's cool. We could probably feed him to the dogs so there happens to be less circus music playing in the background during the meetings and more serious business occuring. Plus it means less communication to reach a majority vote.

    I am more serious than precisionk, but I can work with people like him. Vote for me!

    It says in the rules that if fewer than 8 people receive votes, the remaining spots are filled randomly.

    The Politburo is always 7 members, or at least it will be until there are less than 8 people left.

    My resume:
    • Elected to leader in G&T Phalla, successfully destroyed the bad guys with precisionk
    • Always, 100% good guy. I think my streak is up to 10 or so.
    • I hate capitalism.
    • If I am not elected, I will have very little to do.
    • Capitalism sucks.

    For the motherland.

    I held office for at least four. In any case, there are eight spots and only three of us, so I don't see a problem.

    Or it means that you could be tricky capitalists bent on destroying the glorious Party, and you will use your trickery to do it!

    And yeah I know what happened with ElJeffe the last time he was elected for council in a Phalla. But it can't happen a second time, can it? Never mind the gambler's fallacy; in Soviet Phallia, fallacy gambles you.

    I have run under the assumption that being mean but efficient is much better for our council than those that would idly spend their time smiling for the photo ops.

    However, I'd like to think I'm fair.

    Thorgot is an active player with a good head on his shoulders. If we need people to be elected to any of the available positions, we would be foolish to not have him be one of them.
