In my country, we are ruled by a king. His subjects need not vote for him because he came by the crown in some way or another. The king selects his Hand, his Small Council, holds his court, does all the business of ruling. Household positions are filled by stewards. Lords and ladies swear fealty to the crown. Trade goes on.

Without popular elections, what we are truly free of is a great deal of pointless speech-making. Is the position of ambassador truly so coveted that everyone must spend so much breath on it?

I mean nothing against those brave men and women competing for the title, of course, nor the fine speeches that have been made over this network. Conveniently, we can go back and listen to them anytime we wish... if anyone has ever wished for such a thing.

[Oh, wait, an afterthought:] And nothing against any of our current ambassadors either, I suppose. Will they begin to make speeches to compete with the speeches made before them? It's a horrible thought.

Unfamiliar as I am with such elections, I wonder how long we must suffer this process. Another fortnight? A year?

It's just to make people feel like they have a say in something. In reality, it all comes down to who has money, but people like to think their voice was heard.

[...Or so his mother taught him in his daily lessons about why only rich people matter.]

Sir, if I am elected ambassador, my promise to you is that I'll do away with all pointless speechmaking so that we might focus on more important matters, such as more parties. A party every week; that's what we need.

I hope you'll join me in stepping forward into this beautiful future, together.

It won't be that long. [ though it does feel like it has been going on for years ] But there will be a lot of speeches.


Ambassadors seem just like a fancy title to quiet us down at first, but they have done a much to help us. I speak of personal experience. And the government does listen to them more than they listen to each of us individually.

That's how elections work, buddy. And if you think this is bad, you should've seen the last presidential campaign on my Earth. It was a total circus.

( Thank Rao the Other Guy didn't win. )

People have already told you you've just made a speech and contradicted yourself, so I'll be helpful: probably a few weeks to months. Presidential elections take about two years.
