Default All Time Political Powers Draft

Pick from the greatest political powers in the history of the world. Your performance will be based on the picks' political power and political impact.

I'd like to get posters with at least 1,000 posts. We can vote on the winners (voters should have above 1,000 posts). I guess we can make it... 10 powers per team?

Draft

Okay, The Draft Begins NOW. LakersDynasty is on the clock. Remember - pick guys who had to do with politics. Unfortunately, Jesus does not fit. I want to make a time limit... maybe 10 hours? We'll make it 10 hours for now.

Also - once you pick, put your selection down and pass it on to the next person using this:

PHP Code:
Round 1

1
) LakersDynasty - Stalin
2
) wTFaMonkey - on the clock
3

Are paper clips disqualified? I sure know a lot about freedom fighter Bill Gates and how IBM is fascist. Not to mention apple is Communist, while Linux is simply anarchist crap.

How does it work?

We can also draft dominant Political figures in the Old Roman Empire, Byzantine Empire, Holy Roman Empire, Middle Ages, First German Empire, Prussian Empire, Japanese Imperial Army, Hitler's 3rd Reich, and Mongolian Empire.

We should just stick to political figures since 1776?

1776... recent history... Everyone Agree?

That's my suggestion.

Otherwise I might have to draft Jesus Christ.

Besides, I kinda don't give a $hit about ancient history.

I suggest "powers" in general, so we can add religious figures, generals, philosophers and artists.
