One point, debate doesn't end on saturday. There is no limit to debate time, in theory. The rule is that the debate must last for at least 72 hours, not for 72 hours.

Don't get me wrong either, I appreciate that voting is prompt, but there have been a few bills where debate was closed clearly before it should've been. While this may not always be the case, maybe discretion is the better part of valor.

I actually have zero. I feel bad about this... I figured there must have been somewhere on here where I offended somebody. How depressing.

I might have to eat rat poison now...

But what about Top 5 Canadians in American History?

Obvious vote for Aldon is obvious.

Alton....

Oh, and I voted for Gore obviously.

I'd like to hear about potential consequences of this from the GM's office. That would probably be the final straw on whether I actually support this going through or not. Is it feasible?
81  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE2: Amendment to the Event Referendum Act on: June 02, 2015, 11:33:37 am
Aye

This is interesting...

I should make this clearer. I'm not running for the NE Senate seat (this time anyway), I'm endorsing Talleyrand.
BTW, you're leading in the current polling (select as many... preference)

You tease.

I find everything that has to do with your bizarre cult strange.

If Norm Coleman beats Hubert Humphrey (or any of the other good choices), I will have completely lost all respect for you people as intelligent human beings.

Still Endorsed.

Is there a particular reason why you're misspelling the word loser?

Guess I haven't had time to notice.

What's your vote?



I voted for Wallace.

I just wanted to know if you were doing it for irony or what.

William Weld, maybe.

You still haven't actually taken welfare out of the amended bill, man...

In some way it sort of makes a bit of sense in that, they didn't do anything for us, so why do we owe them anything?...

However, I don't really think along the terms of these sorts of things. To say someone who serves in the military is somehow worth more than anyone else is really stupid. I've known plenty of veterans who are assholes.

If he leaves here tomorrow, will you still remember him?

In the sense that you notice how a fridge smells differently after you remove a block of cheese from it.

Not a classic rock fan, I take it?

I will still be supporting Bore, but I'm glad you took up the cause.

Damn, maybe I'll move to the MW... SOMEBODY has to run. What the hell kind of thing is going on here?

I can't support this given that this is just asking for trouble and will cause a great deal of trouble with the current and future GMs. I'm especially concerned about education. The Northeast, through one of the bills I wrote some time ago (Unless it was repealed while I wasn't looking), provides tuition free education for Northeast resident students. How much more control can you have than that?

Changing the Welfare programs could really put heavy strain on our economy as well. Already, we handle things like local housing and such, but then having to provide things like welfare without federal aid? You'd bankrupt the regional government very quickly and you would no longer see federal help at all in that area.

When you say law, what exactly do you mean? Control of law enforcement? Control of what federal laws we wish to adhere to and which we don't? That's not clear.

Health? Why health? Again, that's asking for difficulty with both our budget and in terms of federal law. How long could we handle a lot of these items without raising taxes?

Also, 40% is high hopes for turnout on a referendum in Atlasia, so it might not even get enough votes to be deemed valid anyway. There are a lot of problems with a good chunk of this idea. It's a nice idea and I see where it's coming from, but it's not practical for the game and it'll probably cause more headaches than it's worth.
