John Locke, known as Sir Friedman in Power 1.0, is a libertarian-right politician who is currently the Chairman of the Libertarian Party, and an anylitics nerd. In Power I and the start of Power II, he was a Republican, but when caucuses were banned in the party he joined the Libertarians, where he stayed to this day. He historically was located in South Dakota and often holds either senate or governor offices. He is the programmer of LibertyBot, the bot has frequented the Libertarian Discord since mid-June 2017.
Power I Edit
Locke was a Senator in South Dakota from the beginning, voting slightly libertarianly as a Republican. He joined the Whigs during a Republican coup and never left until the game was reset.
Power II Edit
After the reset, Locke became an influential member of the Freedom Caucus in the GOP. Still a senator, he proposed one of the first bills, for legal and unregulated marijuana, by large margins. He helped gather the impressive statistics that demonstrated the legislative power of the Freedom Caucus. However, once Heydrich banned all caucuses from the GOP, a disaffected Locke left for the Libertarian Party with the waves of moderate ex-GOP members. He quickly integrated and forever stayed. Eventually earning himself a name for data analytics, he helped the strategy of the Libertarian Party, a role he retains to this day.
After the LNC voted to withdraw from the Libertarian / New Deal Alliance agreement, he stayed with the party, unlike much of the party membership, and eventually became nominated to the LNC.
Power III Edit
Locke was active in the LNC for most of power 3. During this time, he occasionally released Mystery Graphs of the Day, which were parts of graphs he made (typically with axes removed, for security reasons). On December 4, after a vote resulting 7 to 3 in his favor, Gary Johnson transitioned the Chairmanship to Locke in a professional, smooth, and democratic transition of power.
Power IV Edit
As chairman, Locke oversaw some of the LP's transition plans. At the reset, he lured several nerdy players from other parties to defect and
party in his super secret nerd hideout chill with him. He maintains about two thousand lines of python code pertaining to the game, mostly for his bot but also for some other projects.
Other Activities Edit
John Locke was active on the ProjectPoliticalSim project, advising user interface and in programming. Outside of Discord, he is a nerd that follows the activities of the private rocket company SpaceX. He enjoys eating bagels.
