I retract my vote... I must be persuaded.

What can the good people of the ground kingdom, aka Diggerville, aka Diggerslvania, aka Diggerer Ltd offer the people of Rockistan?

Three rings, to the Blood Elf Kings, high in the sky.
Seven to the Forsaken Lords beneath Lordaerons stones.
Nine to the Alliance, doomed to die.
One to the Warchief, upon his throne.

No one ever said elves are nice.

Ahh, yes; because a race is judged by its worst. You are correct. We should begin by kicking out all such dastardly groups. First, the Darkspear Trolls, and that blasted witch-doctor Zalazane. Then, the Tauren and those damnable grimtotem. Who could forget the traitor, Kael'thas? the Blood Elves simply have to go. And the Orcs, oh dear, the Orcs. Ner'zul, Gul'dan, and who knows how many others.

Yes, you're right. Clearly, no race is fit to serve the Horde.

You claim to raise the standard of living while forcing people to live as they once did? I feel nothing else needs to be said.

I will make peace with the bear people of Azeroth. Instead of needlessly slaughtering them for their livers and pelts we will send our ambassadors to make peace with them. Both our people are sick of the blood shed and I will end it. I will push for conservation efforts to help the bear people and give them their own reservations to live on.

Bears will also be able to go to school with the orcs, tauren, and trolls and will be accepted to join the Horde if they so choose. I will give Misha a fitting cabinet position with in my Horde to help me carry out these plans.

The poor bears can't defend themselves from either the Horde or the Alliance. We will come up with a magical solution in order to help out their plight. Some kind of spell that allows them to stand toe to toe with the larger and more scary factions in the world.

For every peon stuck in a mine, that is one less artisan crafting things of greatness. You would lower the Horde to it's common denominator, and demand the people be satisfied. You would make us as the Alliance sees us. As animals, base and savage. The world is massive, and you would keep a family tied to their farm, for fear of starvation.

The difference between the honorable people of the horde, and those that would be kicked out under my rule, is that the former have actually strengthened the horde, while the latter have used the horde as an excuse to strengthen themselves.

Fact is, the gifts you claim new races bring to the horde are nothing of the sort. We have evidence of the forsaken working with the legion while attempting to corrupt both the barrens and ashenvale, merely using their membership of the horde as a cover, as well as working with the grimtotem tribe to attempt to restart a war with the alliance.

As for the bilgewater? I do respect the goblins as a people. However, let's face it. The only reason they are in the horde is because the alliance attacked them and garrosh bullied them. They have been exploited by the previous government, as well as their own, resulting in poverty and near-slavery. To pay for this, I promise to secede Azshara to the cartel, and promise membership in the horde for any goblin willing to embrace our values.

I do believe you missed my plan to use eco-domes to grow forests in Durotar. I am not forcing people to live as they once did. Technology and innovation can bring us food and warm our homes. What I promise is a standard of living, as high as any member of the horde (minus the forsaken) ever had, without the loss of moral values that the careless expansion of the previous warchiefs brought.

To you a peon is a beast? A miner base? A grunt a savage? The good, humble, hardworking people are nothing to you but a stepping stone towards your vaunted "greatness," a Horde where bold monuments are given greater reverence than the sweat of a worker's brow. What is a member of the Horde to you? Clay. They are clay in your fingers to be molded and twisted into whatever purpose you intend, but that is not what they should be. At their core a person of the Horde is a rock, a solid dedication to their families, their values, and the lives they've made for themselves through honest working of the good earth. You would see those rocks shattered, or ground down until you find them pleasing to the eye. That stalwart spirit is the foundation of this great Horde and I would not see it eroded sir!

A peon who cannot become more if he chooses is a beast indeed. It is not an innate trait that elevates us from animals. It is our freedom, and our struggle against the harshness of our world that makes us who we are. A rock is immobile, and is worn down by the wind and rain. I would have the Horde as a mighty tree, one with deep roots and branches large enough to cover us all.

The people you mention have sworn the Blood Oath, and are as much the Horde as any Orc, Troll, or Tauren. The Undead fought with us in Outland, and brought the demons of that blasted place to their knees. The Blood Elves secured our foot hold in Northrend, and have brought their mighty Blood Knights and Magisters to the front lines. The Goblins give us industrial might, and the financial fortitude to fuel it. They are family! You would abandon them at your leisure, and leave us with nothing. Have you no compassion! Your heart beats not with the Horde, but with the Alliance, where kinship is determined by blood alone.

Any novice Shaman could tell you that plan is reckless and foolhardy. After the Cataclysm, you really intend to force the land to bend to your will?

Rockistan? You understand the orcs eat rocks, don't you? It's true!

You should join the Alliance instead. Three of our races are descended from rocks and metals, and care far more for stone than the Horde ever will.

Have you seen the lands of Durotar? Plenty of stone, and yet the orcs insist on using wood, rather than the noble terrain they walk on!

Excuse me, but when have I ever mentioned the blood elves as those who should not be in the horde? I do think you had a bit of a freudian slip there, as I consider the blood elves valued members and allies.

And as for the horde being family, last I checked, good family didn't browbeat its members into working for them when they were at their weakest. Nor did good family members abuse their status in the hopes of committing gruesome crimes leaving the rest of their family to cover for them. Under my guidance, the horde will become a healthy family once more, not this twisted immoral mockery you see it as.

I assure you, eco-domes have been used for years across a hundred worlds throughout the harshest regions of the universe. Your attempt to dismiss my plan is a pretty obvious attempt to gain political advantage, even it means that people in the horde will starve to death without the extra food.

You would create a 'healthy' family by cleaving members from it, like a tumor. And I merely assumed you wanted the Blood Elves gone, as you claimed

Oh really? The last I recall, we saw them being used on a dead and ravaged planet, with the wildlife being twisted and driven into an unnatural fury.

A very apt comparison, dear Shroombie. For what else do you do with a malignant tumor? You remove it.

Where have I claimed such a thing? The only ones I want gone are the forsaken. I would be delighted if the goblins stayed, but that's a choice I'm leaving up to them.

The goblins should never have been forced to become members of the horde. It was a crime of the last administration, which the goblins only accepted out of desperation. I would love goblins to be in the horde, but the honorable thing to do is leave the choice up to them.

Lies. I have been to the eco-domes myself. Within lies the last remnants of Farahlon, animals and plants. True, there have been occasional anomalies, but those were due to deliberate sabotage. If you are still worried, relax; The eco-domes will only be used to quickly raise forests, and will not be permanent structures. Like any shaman knows, nature sometimes needs a helping hand to restore balance.

This, I can agree on. Good to see we have some common ground. Giving them Azshara is a step too far, though.

Farahlon was composed of lush rolling hills. What the Eco-domes have created are foul, overgrown jungles, not dissimilar to the Overgrowth which used to plague the Southern Barrens.

Nope, just the forsaken, who haven't accomplished anything other than finding fabulous new ways to commit atrocities. Blood elves, revantusk and frostwolves are valued allies and friends.

Shroomy, my dear boy, you must understand that what the horde seeks is not gifts. You diminish it by reducing new members to gifts. They are family members, around for the long run.

Quote:

Azshara, as it is now, has been shaped almost entirely by goblin hands. It would be unfair to their efforts to denounce that. Not giving them the horde territories there would practically be stealing.

Farahlon was composed of lush rolling hills. What the Eco-domes have created are foul, overgrown jungles, not dissimilar to the Overgrowth which used to plague the Southern Barrens.
I'll admit that the vegetation has gotten a little denser, but I think we've already got quite enough rolling hills in horde territory, don't we? Thick forests on the other hand are something we could really use right now.

Shocking allegations of collaboration with the Alliance???? Awful truth or vicious slander? Find out in our exclusive investigation of Pajamasalad's dark past! Kun-Lai Times! We're unfair to everybody!

Is ijffdrie a racist?

Warchief candidate Shroombie launches his counterattack, openly condemning rival ijffdrie of racially targetted policies! Read the Kun-Lai times to get the full story!

The Kun-Lai Times brings you the latest in this campaign season's ongoing series of backroom deals! Kun-Lai Times! Politicians are assholes!

I accept the decent folks of the Horde as they are, and respect both their intelligence and way of life. It is you sir, you and your ilk that seeks to destroy everything they hold dear for the sake of your grand plans, your lofty visions that have no place within them for the very people you entreat for their votes.
Candidates ijffdrie and Volkrin McVolkrin both claim to stand for the common man! The Kun-Lai Times explains why they're both lying!

Fumbled press conference!

And the naga would try to turn us away from the shamanistic ways, what with the following of the old gods and all that.

The horde must return to tradition. Shamanism, hunting, honor, being one with our land. Anything else will just cost the taxpayer unnecesary money. We must focus on our own lands first. I promise that my first focus shall be on restoring the high quality of life for every man, woman and child in the horde (again, except the forsaken, not gonna waste effort on a lost project) and the security of our homeland. Only when those things are assured can we look at the greater world.
Warchief candidate ijffdrie cannot pull his foot from his mouth as he spouts slur after racially insensitive slur! Read the opinions of politically undecided Naga and Sporelings in the Kun-Lai Times!

Attack on the Horde way of life?

Candidate Shroombie condemns his rivals for their conventional traditions and values! Why does he hate the Horde and everything our fathers stood for???? The Kun-Lai Times finds out!

Negotiations with terrorists??????

Leaked transcripts of Warchief candidate Pajamasalad reveal backroom deals with the infamous bear Erthad, bear face of the bear coalition of bear terrorists! What was she thinking???? Read the Kun-Lai Times to find out!

As for the bilgewater? I do respect the goblins as a people. However, let's face it. The only reason they are in the horde is because the alliance attacked them and garrosh bullied them. They have been exploited by the previous government, as well as their own, resulting in poverty and near-slavery. To pay for this, I promise to secede Azshara to the cartel, and promise membership in the horde for any goblin willing to embrace our values.
In his latest of inflammatory speeches against foreign races, ijffdrie condemns Forsaken and Goblin citizens of the Horde and shares plans to deport Goblins to reservations on the Azshara coast! Read the Kun-Lai Times for a full transcript!

You should join the Alliance instead. Three of our races are descended from rocks and metals, and care far more for stone than the Horde ever will.

Have you seen the lands of Durotar? Plenty of stone, and yet the orcs insist on using wood, rather than the noble terrain they walk on!
Pro-Alliance anarchists are on the rise as pamphlets generated by the Alliance propaganda machine find their way into Horde cities! Read this Kun-Lai Times special editorial to learn why the Alliance is responsible for gang violence!

More backroom deals????
