Brutus Campaign Speech Presentation
My fellow Romans, it is I, Marcus Junius Brutus. And I am here running for the position of leader of Rome. I unlike my predecessor will not be a king, or emperor, I will simply rule as one of you, the common people of this great city. But why do you ask, should you vote for me? Because I am selfless. I do not act out of envy, rivalry, or power. I only want what is best for Romans and the people of Rome.
While others like Mark Antony, will simply follow in the footsteps of Caesar, and do we really need another Caesar? Do we need another tyrant to simply squash us all into submission? I say we need a leader, someone who will take charge and change our fine city for the better, and I will do whatever it takes to make this city better, in the past I killed one of my best friends in this world for the betterment of Rome.
I cannot stand tyrants and I vow not to become one. But Antony will become a tyrant I fear, for he was Caesar’s puppet. Antony is nothing but a twister of words, Antony talks well but he doesn’t know how to really rule, Antony would only make the mistakes of his predecessors letting the throne corrupt him into something bad. Antony knows nothing of what it takes to lead such a great city. But why should I be leader? Well while Caesar was on a campaign he put me in charge of a city. This city was un-happy with Caesar for taking over, but I convinced them our leader Caesar, was good and that they should be thanking him, while Caesar toured the cities all the others were angry with him for taking over, but in my city we held celebrations. Julius Caesar was very surprised, and happy at this. Another example of my credibility is that I am a prestige general.
I have had the honor of fighting many battles, including against Julius Caesar himself. I lost against Caesar that battle teaching me an important lesson in my strategies and ethics. So not only will I be a fair and just leader, but I will be able to protect the great city of Rome. This is a valuable skill to this great city because without the protection of a grand army we will soon fall prey to the small countries surrounding us. But why should you vote for me as a whole? Because I Marcus Junius Brutus will protect, serve, and preach my allegiance to you, the common people of Rome, the ones that I live to serve. Thank you.
