At this point, I'd rather him not run. He wouldn't try to keep Dems in check. So what is the point in getting him to run?

From a Republican perspective, would you rather have somebody that votes with you 50% of the time or 0%?

I certainly support the regions' right to exist and govern themselves to an extent...but I also think that eliminating regional Senate seats might be worth considering.

I have a negative opinion of the church, but I admire Mormons in a weird way.

How about with any country that criminalizes homosexuality at all?

I find it amazing that Eliot Spitzer hired some prostitutes and resigned two days after it hit the headlines, but Mark Sanford abandoned his state completely for several days to hike some Argentinian tail, and he remains safe?  Let's get some perspective.

It's OK, because he impeached Clinton for not going terribly far out of his way to get a BJ.

Clinton was impeached for perjury.  Why is it so hard for liberals to understand that?

Depends on your defintion of perjury, I suppose.
15889  General Discussion / Constitution and Law / Re: Is having "In God We Trust" on money, buildings, etc. constitutional? on: June 26, 2009, 04:54:45 am
Yes (R)

Could you at least attempt to present an argument?

Or is something constitutional just because you agree with it?

15891  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Is there a Democratic plot to destroy the careers of 2012 Presidential candidate on: June 25, 2009, 06:17:41 pm
They're good enough at destroying their own careers....they don't need the Democrats for that.

Bill Clinton passes a bill to let incumbent presidents have 3 terms instead of 2.

How is Bill Clinton supposed to do that?

I don't know, this is a what if thread by the way.

You do realize that a constitutional amendment would be required to change term limit regulations? And that the President has no role in passing amendments?

I should stress, of course....that it should replace the former amendment Smiley

I'm willing to support that because the government does eventually get it's money back....and it still provides relief to the person in debt....as 10% are certainly lower than any credit card company would offer.

Of course. I brought the previous amendment just to get the ball rolling. It is one of those mysterious parts of Atlasia: nothing gets done until someone does something extreme, then people go nuts and look for a way to fix it. I would be more than happy to support this superior solution.

Yes, that's true. Wink Makes sense to propose something radical in order to force some sort of middle ground.

4. The government of each region shall administer a 6-hour education course on the proper uses and risks of credit. Upon completion of the course and passage of a final examination, the government shall subsidize a reduction in the individual's credit interest rate by half. A passing grade on the final examination shall be deemed as performance exceeding 75%, not to be interpreted as to prevent or overwrite stricter grades in any region.

OK...this is part of the current bill, and it is something that would prevent me from voting for final passage.

Let me offer a compromise:

The government of each region shall administer a 6-hour education course on the proper use and risks of credit. Upon completion of the course and passage of a final examination, the government shall offer a loan equal to one year's worth of credit card payments, which shall be paid back to the government at an interest rate of 10%. A passing grade on the final examination shall be deemed as performance exceeding 75%, not to be interpreted as to prevent or overwrite stricter grades in any region.

Welcome to Atlasia, it's always nice to see people that are really interested in learning about the structure of the game. As a (for DA standards) right leaning member...it's good to get more sensible libertarians...and you make that impression Smiley

Have fun.
