    POLITICAL CONSULTANT: You’re the best, and most wily, operative that money can buy! You pick a Power Card from Democracy: Majority Rules and then send us a photograph of you striking your most imposing (safe for work) political pose. We will make you famous... okay, so we don’t make you famous, but we will Democratize your image and emblazon that sucker right smack in the middle of your aforementioned power card of choice. This card won’t go out in the game boxes, but to make it up to you, we will apply whatever special power you would like to the card, and you are legally entitled to brandish said card in any game of Democracy and try to use it. The best image (and coolest power) will be released in the first official expansion set. You will also receive 2 numbered copies of Democracy, 1 of which is the PARTY GAME package, complete with certificates of authenticity. You may be eligible for free shipping.*
