I'm hoping there will be overseas expansion before long.  After all the Monarchy is more expansive than our democracy.  States of Belize and Jamaica anyone? :-D

America will become opened wide.

oh, enough of your goatse references Tongue

I'd be willing to support Verily's first or second maps. I'd also be fine with revisiting IVL's map; the citizens seem to like that one a lot.
11857  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Citizens' Redistricting Proposals on: November 19, 2007, 07:59:17 pm
Would it be possible to get a second opinion as to the legality of my map? I mean no disrespect to SoFA Lewis, I'd just like to hear from another perspective.
11858  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: November Southeast Ballot Initiatives on: November 19, 2007, 07:38:36 am
Let's see here, with Brandon's signature on everything:

XBacon King on your initiative, Brandon, giving it three signatures.

Both of Woz's initiatives have only a single signature (Brandon's).

TCash's "Sound Minds Save Lives" initiative has two signatures, mine and Brandon's.

If there are no objections, I'll just have the initiative vote during the Public Interest Amendment vote that's coming in a couple days.
11859  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Governor's Redistricting Thread on: November 19, 2007, 07:04:38 am
1. Map C - Approve
2. Mab B - Approve
3. Map A - Disapprove

I'll post announcements and such here.

Please participate in the newly established Constitutional Convention.
11861  Forum Community / Mock Parliment / Antillian Constitutional Convention on: November 18, 2007, 09:24:01 pm
Welcome, everyone. You have all been elected to the first session of the new Antillian parliament. The first order of business is to provide a new national constitution to our beleagured nation, so this special constitutional convention has been established.

For starters, please select among yourselves a presiding officer.
11862  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Potential Presidential Candidates this February? on: November 18, 2007, 09:11:28 pm
Should gporter decide to run, I shall refrain from a candidacy.
11863  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Concerned Citizens of Atlasia (CCA) on: November 18, 2007, 08:42:09 pm
I think we should have elections for chairman.
11864  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Potential Presidential Candidates this February? on: November 18, 2007, 08:38:51 pm
gporter/gporter



Seriously, though, I'm considering a possible run.
11865  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Governor's Redistricting Thread on: November 18, 2007, 04:44:27 pm
I withdraw my previous submission in favor of this map:



Blue: 11 citizens, district 1
Green: 11 citizens, district 2
Red: 10 citizens, district 3
Purple: 11 citizens, district 4
Yellow: 10 citizens, district 5

This map complies with all Atlasian redistricting law.

I'm open to changing district numbers, by the way.

Gun control is a step towards despotism. Hitler favored gun control.

I'm pretty sure its a rule of the internet that if you mention Hitler in an unrelated political debate, you automatically lose.
11867  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How old should you have to be to........ on: November 18, 2007, 02:32:59 pm
1. Get drafted: Never
2. Consume Alcoholic Beverages: 16; any age with parental consent
3. Consume energy drinks (such as red bull): any
4. Smoke Tobacco: 16
5. Smoke Marijuana: 16
6. Own a firearm: 18
7. Purchase pornography:16
8. Have sex with a 23 year old: 16
9. Get a drivers license: 15, though ideally 18 if public transportation were somewhat decent
10. Gamble: 16
11. Get a job: 14 w/ work permit, 16 always
12. Watch a rated R movie, 16 i guess, though any age if a parent allows it
11868  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Governor's Redistricting Thread on: November 18, 2007, 02:20:59 pm
Once again, I wholeheartedly support ILV's map, as well as my own. I urge the other governors to try something different, rather than accepting a boring regional-based map.

Also, please not that I have numbered the districts in my submission.
11869  Forum Community / Mock Parliment / Re: Doing Things? on: November 18, 2007, 01:17:18 pm
Yeah, I wouldn't mind borrowing completely from that. Sorry I haven't really done much to get off the ground here, I will get to it soon.
11870  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: November Southeast Ballot Initiatives on: November 17, 2007, 02:29:34 pm
Please note that although voting should be occuring this weekend, there are no initiatives with the required signatures.
11871  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Governor's Redistricting Thread on: November 17, 2007, 02:19:05 pm
My official proposal:



Green: district one
Purple: district two
Teal: district three
Yellow: district four
Red: district five

any chance of a house race in your future, muon?
11873  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Governor's Redistricting Thread on: November 15, 2007, 07:30:51 am
Does anybody know when there will be a vote on this? Just curious.

I've mentioned friday, and haven't seen any objections. If Jesus is going to be taking charge, its up to him.
11874  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Concerned Citizens of Atlasia (CCA) on: November 15, 2007, 07:29:07 am
Hey what should we be concerned about, DWTL?
Yourself and Gporter for starters

Excuse me? As an official member of this prestigious organization, I believe I am entitled to at least some level of respect.
11875  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Peak oil a thing of the past on: November 14, 2007, 07:24:47 am
I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that the oil supply has actually peaked, it could possible that the downward trend is a result of temporary fluctuations. To really know, we'd have to see the data trends from further back.

Doesn't change the fact that we need to get away from fossil fuel usage though.
