My fellow Atlasians,

I am honoured to have just taken the oath of office. The privilege you have given and the trust you have placed in me is something I hold deeply to my heart.

I want to thank President Tmth, Vice President Dallas and the Cabinet for their service and for their assistance during this very brief transition.

This country is dealing with a number of very difficult challenges, an economy that is weaker than it should be, a lack of engagement with the wider world, a disengaged population and a Government that works better for you.

I have outlined a range of measures to help renew our economy. We will cut wasteful spending, we will make sure that subsides do not end up boosting profits but we will also do so while protecting our economy from a double-dip recession. Some difficult decisions need to be made, but once we have endured the difficult night, a new dawn will await us.

I want to speak to the wider world now, Atlasia has been on odd player on the world stage, but I say this to you all now. Atlasia is ready to take its place among the community of nations. We will be a messenger of good will and an advocate for our values. We are dealing with deployments in Afghanistan and Iraq, this administration will lay the groundwork to see our exit from those conflicts.

Many on my side of politics have a great unease when it comes to the advocacy of certain political values. But imposition and advocacy are clear different things. I will never waver in defending those who want to guarantee what all Atlasians believe are our most precious rights, most important of all, the right of self-determination. But we cannot impose the values of liberal democracy on anyone without consequences.

Many forget the often bloody and fraught evolution that our Democracies undertook to get where we are today. Many look on the Arab Spring with cautious optimism, but often that optimism is conditional. We cannot deny those who want democracy the same processes that ours have had.

But now, the role of Atlasia I believe is to support and advocate, not to impose through military might, but I assure our friends and allies that if called upon in the defense of those values, Atlasia will be there.

I have established the Presidential Game Reform Panel. The purpose of this Panel is to explore, in a holistic fashion, almost all systems of Atlasian government and governance to see where changes can be made to help make this country work better. I also will create a specific domestic policy committee which will be Chaired by the Vice President, is it just one way in which I want to expand the role of the Vice Presidency in a truly meaningful way.

So ladies and gentlemen, the work we have to do together is great, but equally we are granted, through that work, great opportunities. This is not something that can be guided by one person, in order to renew our country, every single man and woman in this country has a role to play.

I believe we are ready for that challenge.

Thank you and may Dave bless Atlasia.

Actually no, one can be in the closet and not be having sex, being in the closet is about deliberately hiding your sexuality.

....I saw T3.... it was miles better than the last one.... mind you it's like saying pneumonia is better than bubonic plague.

It's totally ridiculous, but I dare say it might be the most 'solid' of the three.

Happy Birthday mate, hope you had a great day!

I think the issue of human sexuality is very very complex.

I'm personally of the view that sexuality is largely based on genetic traits, but there are also elements of external factors in some people... but the thing I've noticed is that there are virtually no common factors in the backgrounds of any of my gay or lesbian friends.

There is some evidence which supports the younger brother factor... but it's not that compelling.

While I agree that the act of sexuality is a choice, but I think the recipe for mental instability is the suppression of normal healthy sexual expression. I know some people who were and some who are still in the closet... and I honestly don't think I've known more miserable people.

Important things to consider, I will look into it.

THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT-ELECT

Seattle, Washington

Inauguration activities

The President-elect has arrived in Nyman in preparation for the Inauguration tomorrow.

THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT-ELECT

Seattle, Washington

President-elect Polnut has nominated former Senator and Vice President Kalwejt to be the next Attorney General of Atlasia.

The President-elect has said "this role is very important, and I look forward to seeing what Kal does with the role, he has deep experience in Atlasia which should bring positive changes to the Justice Department. This department needs to be vigilant and active again."

In relation to the Cabinet in general "I have nominated people who I feel have qualities the roles need. This will not be a case of lots of personal agendas working under one umbrella, the Polnut Cabinet will be about working together to deliver the Administration's goals".

The President-elect has no intention of changing the arrangements for the Moderator General position.

8264  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Gays and Trade on: June 30, 2011, 03:35:57 am
I would oppose any attempt to reverse this Act, International Trade Agreements, are, in fact, about much more than just simple trade.

That's really awesome, congratulations ! Smiley I'm longing for the left-wing primary, though. Wink

Hey.... WHAT left-wing primary?!! Tongue

The degree to which these people are reaching is almost amusing... it shows how weak a position they're in...

THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT-ELECT

Seattle, Washington

President-elect Polnut has nominated former Senator and Attorney-General Barnes to serve as the next Secretary of Internal Affairs. He will also nominate former Senator and Northeast Governor Rowan Brandon to serve as Game Moderator.

These are experienced Atlasians who, despite issues in the past, have shown renewed commitment to Atlasia, and the President-elect is enthusiastic about what they can bring to these important and inter-connected roles.

8269  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Polnut/Bacon King for Atlasia - Transitional Office on: June 29, 2011, 09:20:00 am
Congratulations for ther win Smiley

I have asked Hans to stay on as Registrar-General


I like to be as RG for your term Smiley. The only problem is, that I can't make a update of the voter list before July 29. I have a very long vacation. Wink

Remember how often EarlAW updated the voter roll ? Frankly, I doubt anyone will hate you for one little month ! Grin

Exactly, that's perfectly fine for me.
8270  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Polnut/Bacon King for Atlasia - Transitional Office on: June 29, 2011, 08:38:32 am
I am anticipating announcing my nominations for Secretary of Internal Affairs, Game Moderator and Attorney General sometime later today.

8272  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Polnut/Bacon King for Atlasia - Transitional Office on: June 28, 2011, 08:16:26 pm
When I spoke after being given the greatest honour possible, I said that I would not forget the support that was given to me from across the Atlasian political spectrum.  The Polnut Cabinet will not be an exercise in party-political posturing.

The basis for the determinations that I have made so far are about ability, experience or promise, or in fact a combination of all of them.

I have asked Hans to stay on as Registrar-General, and Ben to stay on as Secretary of External Affairs.

I will be nominating Attorney-General Teddy as Secretary of Federal Elections.

I have also made two appointments to the Presidential Game Reform Panel - belgiansocialist and Marokai.

Further announcements will be made throughout the week.
8273  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Polnut/Bacon King for Atlasia - Transitional Office on: June 28, 2011, 09:55:15 am
The announcement has been delayed.

Get a grip, then get a clue...

If you really think championing the anti-gay marriage cause is some sort of well-argued wide-spread vote-winner for the GOP... then my original statement well and truly applies...
