I'm curious about how widespread this practice is; if you don't drive, vote what you would do if you did.

What we need is someone with an extensive knowledge of policy but who does not actually have any political positions or at least lacks a great degree of zeal about their positions.

Joe Republic?

I'd vote Franken, though I'd really consider voting Hannity to keep Dobbs from winning.

I've got a friend who's preordered it; sometime in the next few weeks four of us will devote a whole day or so and play through it.

This was done; it was awesome.

How is lobbying for a vote illegal.

You weren't lobbying for a vote, you were lobbying for someone to commit an act which is technically illegal. I don't know about how the common law rules on conspiracy apply in the U.S. (and so by implication in Atlasia) so I can't say for sure whether or not your action could be construed as criminal/illegal in nature.

Technically, it's not illegal, it just invalidates your vote.

If the act of editting one's ballot isn't illegal, then how do you usually describe actions which are disallowed by law and carry a sanction or penalty?

In America, if somebody votes for Al Gore and George Bush, they're vote is invalidated, but it's not illegal.

Bad analogy. It's actually more like someone voting on election day, and then they decide later in they day to change their vote, so they go and take it out of the ballot box and put a new one in.

Which definately is a crime, by the way.

No - I'm just asking that they take it out of the ballot.  What Al did was put a new one in.

Okay, well still. It's like going in to the ballot box and taking yours out.

Which is still a federal crime.

A couple of questions I have about Por- er, Ebowed's newest bill.

3. The use of phosphates containing radium 226, which contains radioactive elements, which are attributed to 90% of smoking-related lung cancer deaths, as a fertilizer for tobacco crops is criminalized.

This is ambiguously worded. Are phosphates with radium 226 responsible for 90% of lung cancer deaths, or are radioactive elements in general?

Also, for debate's sake, can this statement be sourced?

Quote
4. Companies found in violation of Section 3 will be liable for a minimum $1 million fine per crop containing illegal fertilizer.

What do you mean by crop? A specific area of field?
11922  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Here's another reason to deport illegals - they're suing for getting arrested on: September 28, 2007, 09:27:39 pm
Whether you like it or not, the constitution protects all people living in America, whether or not you deem them "illegal."

Yeah - protects - but once they sue, we should have ICE deport them - because now that it's publically known that they're illegal - why shouldn't we.

That'd be blatant interference with their lawsuit.

It would also be a dangerous precedent to start- "wait, you can't sue us! we'll get you deported!"
