One of the arguments against currently being used is that it will lead to the end of PR and to gerrymandering. However, we've never really used proportional representation in Atlasia anyway. Preference voting isn't PR as has been pointed out and we're unlikely to ever dump preference voting.

As far as gerrymandering, I've never liked the thought of it for this game or otherwise, but I remember the last time we used Districts, it didn't really change all that frequently. Are districts anymore likely to be gerrymandered with the new amendment?

I'm fine with him as Speaker. He wants the job, let him have it.

Though, this happens rather frequently. Every time, bar once or twice, I've been here, it's always a seemingly one horse race for the job. We need to at some point think about at least having a proper contest at some point. Tongue

I like Underwood. I'm not too enthused about Rankin, tbh.

Proposing a small amendment to cover something I experienced and I feel is important.

Quote
Amendment to the Mandatory Arts Lessons Act:

The Mandatory Arts Lessons Act shall be amended as follows:

1. All public school students in the Northeast from kindergarten to 8th grade shall take part in arts lessons (art, music or drama) at least once a week as part of the curriculum.

2. All public school students in the Northeast from 9th grade to 12th grade shall take two semesters of arts classes (art, music or drama) throughout their schooling as a requirement to graduate.

3. Students shall not be required to pay for any art supplies or instruments that can be provided by the school district unless the student wishes to purchase these items permanently.
3b. In such cases, the price of such supplies may be determined by individual districts, but may not exceed 10% of what the item cost the school district to purchase.

I, Dr. Cynic, do solemnly affirm that I will faithfully execute the office of Northeast Representative and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia, so help me.

Hopefully Andrew George wins in May just like he did in this poll.  I know it's going to be a close race.

14-14 is a win?

Probably more.

All papers are good in my view. Subscribed.

Kenneth Clarke, I think.

13  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Michigan vs Ohio on: April 22, 2015, 12:57:10 pm
Being a yinzer, it would go against my very cultural upbringing to vote anything positive about Ohio. However, I've been to Ohio dozens of times and I've worked frequently there (I had one bad experience in Columbus, but other than that, everywhere else was fine). I've never been to Michigan, though, so I guess I vote Ohio by default?
14  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: do you identify as a "milifan"? on: April 22, 2015, 12:53:50 pm
I like Ed Miliband. That whole "I'm kind of an awkward geek" thing is, I think a good contrast to slickster Cameron.

Imagine if this was the result in any Cornish constituency. David Dimbleby might have a heart attack on air it would be so stunning.

I had 4 first preference votes, not three.

Primaries

This could be a very interesting result...

These kinds of things make me think that we really should have a less complicated way of doing these things.
21  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you know what country your grandparents were born in? on: April 20, 2015, 11:26:25 pm
I only know my mother's parents (and I only met my mother's father). Both were born in the United States, but my grandfather's parents were both from England.

I don't even know my paternal grandparents' names.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Wilson Vs Taft Vs Roosevelt Today on: April 20, 2015, 05:28:14 pm
I have a hard time seeing Taft winning at all, let alone running.

I also have a hard time seeing someone as charismatic as Theodore Roosevelt not romping home on Wilson who was terrified of smiling lest he show off his horribly rotted teeth, which today would have had to be fixed if he wanted to have any kind of career in politics at all.
