5626  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: 2004: Bush vs. McCain vs. Alexander vs. Thompson? on: September 06, 2007, 01:16:37 pm
What is George W. Bush had real well known opponents in the 2004 Election season for the GOP nom?  Notably, John McCain, Lamar Alexander and Fred Thompson.

What? I see question marks, but I don't see a question. More of a confusing statement about nothing.

 Are you asking what if Bush had well known opponents in the primary? If so, I don't think anything would happen. Bush was still somewhat liked, and still had a real possibility of winning re-election. The GOP knew that if he were forced into a primary, that would be the end of their rule in the White House.

 Maybe that wouldn't have been such a bad idea.

I don't think you can legally do this.

Eh, I do a lot of things that aren't legal. Just figured I'd keep things moving since others were pre-occupied.

 TO THE BRIG WITH ME!

Hello, Northeast, can someone open this vote? It's been 3 days already.

I just opened it in the voting section.
5629  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Northeast Voting Booth: Popular Initiative Amendment on: September 06, 2007, 11:40:24 am
As nobody else has done so, I'll just start this off.


The Senate debate on the Amendment can be found here.

The Amendment is as follows:
Popular Initiative Amendment

Article I, Section 3, Clause 5 of the Atlasian Constitution shall be created to read as follows:

Any ordinary citizen of Atlasia may propose legislation for immediate consideration by the Senate. To do so, he must:

(a) create a new thread (entitled with the name of his proposed legislation) containing his proposal;

(b) receive the signitures of 15% of the registered citizens of Atlasia within 28 days of creating the thread.

When these requirements are met and verified by the Secretary of Forum Affairs, the legislation shall be placed before the Senate for its consideration, though only one piece of legislation proposed in this matter shall be considered by the Senate at any one time. The citizen who creates the thread for the legislation shall be thence considered the sponsor of the legislation.

I don't see why not. Let's not forget that Daschle was the Democratic leader in the Senate until he failed to win reelection a few years ago.

Yes..and? Daschle was done in by Frist, Rove, and Bush. Pelosi isn't going anywhere unless she is defeated in a primary.

Reread the question. I don't think that Pelosi will be the Speaker for the next 93 years.

Reread my answer. I didn't say that Pelosi would be Speaker that long. I was commenting on Daschle, on how he was done in. He was the democratic leader from a strong Republican state, and those three helped do him in.

Further proof that AZ won´t be a swing state if Clinton is the DEM nominee ...

Further proof that it sucks to be John McCain, and Naso, one of his many (17) supporters.

Some People said the same thing about Virginia and Montana.

Yeah, Virginia and Montana are very much so different from Idaho, but you knew that.

That's sad.  Senator Warner is a great man, and has done great things for the Commonwealth of Virginia.  I'm glad, for atleast a short time, I was able to call him my Senator.

I'm bumping my old campaign for this current one.

 Again, any additional questions that anybody, even those not in the district wish to ask, please feel free.

I hate not typing out an actual answer, but I agree with with Verily on the issue.
5648  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Who are you planning to support in the Northeast Special Election? on: August 30, 2007, 11:08:47 am
This will be incredibly.... incredibly hard.

Indeed.

For real

I'll break down each item and respond.

  • Judicial Terms—Should Supreme Court terms be lifetime appointments, or should judges be up for reconfirmation (in any shape or form) after the period of one year?

 I believe that in Atlasia, our Supreme Court terms should be based on reconfirmation each year. I believe that is the best way to keep our courts moving into new directions. If a Justice does his or her job properly, there should be no reason for not being reconfirmed.

  • Popular Initiative—Should citizens be able to sponsor a law and bring it to the Senate floor provided they obtain signatures of at least 15% of registered Atlasian voters?

 In a way, yes, I believe that citizens should be able to sponser a bill, but I believe it can be done in a different manor. I believe that once the signatures are obtained by registered voters, that the citizen should bring it forward to his or her Senator, and have it directly brought to the floor for voting. I think by having their Senator bring it foward, it will keep our Senate clean, and make it easier to see where the propsed laws are coming from.

  • Proportional Representation—Should we continue to elect Class B Senators from five evenly-populated districts, or should all five Class B Senators be elected nationwide via "proportional representation by single transferrable vote"?

 I believe that we should continue electing Class B Senators the way we do it now. Local members for local districts, voting for their needs.
