The Seventh Robin Steak Fry
If you try to be all things to all people, you're nothing to anybody." —Sen. Harkin


Hello Wintreath and welcome to this, the SEVENTH Robin Steak Fry!!  As we always do, we've managed to collect a hearty pile of steaks and an even heartier pile of candidates, who can connect here with their future donors constituents!
Good evening candidates, citizens, flora, and fauna—welcome to this, the 7th Harkin Robin Steak Fry!  Today we have assembled a gaggle of vexing vaudevillians candidates hailing from every corner of Wintreath to speak to you, the citizenry, on their views of Wintreath as it stands today, their goals for the 26th Underhusen, and where they hope to lead Wintreath in this brave new world.  The (first few) questions are as follows:

1. Before we get into the real meat of the this event, as always, I want to ask all the candidates—what make you decide to run for the Underhusen?  What do you think should the main goals of our 26th legislature? 

2. As has been shown time and again in the annals of history, both in the digital and physical world, to survive and prosper, a community must grow.  What do you believe is the best way to return Wintreath to a regime of growth in NationStates and beyond?  Do you have any ideas for how to spur growth through legislative action, or by the Underhusen's example?

3. What, other than inactivity, do you think is the biggest problem facing Wintreath at this point, either as a NationStates region and or a community (or both!)?

4. Do other NS regions have any programs or operations that you think we could emulate to enrich our community here in Wintreath?  If so, please share, that we might emulate them!! :D

5. Who is your favourite politician (real or fictional) from history and why?

6. What is your favourite form of government?  Why?

7. What do you think makes a successful democracy? 

8. Are you capable of being online for the duration of this session of the Underhusen?  How "active" do you consider yourself on the forums?

9. Now we're not too formal here.  I don't want this to be a a place for candidates to get on their soapbox, but rather a genuine and free exchange of ideas, so:  what questions do you feel every candidate should be asked?  As this is a bit more of an informal event (it's a steak fry, after all) feel free to engage in debate (but preferably a illuminating discussion) with your fellow candidates and upstanding citizens of the Wintreath community!  :)

10. And now, the most important question of all—how would you like your steak?
