Empowering someone to administer an election is hardly a takeover.
4  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Confirmation Hearing: Enduro for GM on: February 05, 2016, 10:43:54 pm
I understand the concerns of my northern colleages, but I have been willing to take risks with regards to the GM if it means potentially benefiting the game. Caution has restrained it from its potential and not without good reason for such (Sirnick etc). In this instance, Enduro's inexperience may allow him to be more free thinking and not as wetted to old way of doing business.

AYE
5  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Closing Election Loopholes Act of 2016 (Debating) on: February 05, 2016, 10:38:32 pm
There was a stated desire I think by someone earlier in this thread about the 20 minutes as it relates to the end of the election. Say the election only has 5 minutes left or 30 seconds and a person votes. Do they have ability to change it at say 12:15 AM?

I know this has come up before in discussion at least, but I don't recall if there was ever any certainty as to how it would be handled if it came up during an election. Would there be interest in addressing it now?

I support this measure.

I cannot say that I am surprised about this turn of events. It was easily predictable for a variety of reasons, but regardless it is now our priority to see to it that some semblance of order is restored.

12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: 1956 South Carolina on: February 03, 2016, 11:33:53 pm
Republicans were absolutely hated in the South until at least the 1960s. Goldwater was really the first one they liked at all. Even a popular leader like Eisenhower wasn't enough to power the Republican vote.

In the Deep South I would agree, but in terms of the South as a whole Ike made tremendous headway in the peripheral and Outer South states. VA, TN, TX, and FL come to mind for instance.

This poll is for all registered voters and will run for five days.


This series of polls is a month behind I know, largely because of a serious situation in real life. Its purpose is to research performance during the period in question for current officeholders as well as those who have since left office such as Senator Oakvale and Senator Celticempire.

This poll in particular will be the last to measure to the performance of Secretary of Federal Elections homelycooking.

NAY

The healthcare section still acts as those subsidized private market insurance doesn't exist. Part of this is my fault for not getting on here enough to emphasize the point as it was back in December when I posted about.

I missed your post on the 30th.


There was no enforcement mechanism.

The constitution is neither informal nor unbinding!


Adam you are missing the point of the rules change here. Prior to this change of rules, Non-Senators were barred from posting at all in the thread in question.

The change made it so that bills could be posted in the thread by the President and VP, however it changed nothing with regards to the sponsorship requirements and it was the understanding of every Senator, especially most of your Senators at the time, that this rule change couldn't change anything with regards to the ability of the President or VP to actually sponsor the legislation.
