1  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: NC; PPP: Hagan only up one on: October 30, 2014, 09:32:49 pm
PPP has a very good track record in NC, they caught that Dole was weak and vulnerable when most throught her relatively safe.

That said I don't see Tillis winning this.

The competativeness aspect is a different one from that of interest. Competativeness can be determined by the partisanship of the region as well. So a rightist in the Pacific or a liberal in the IDS would be just as discouraged from running with or without Bgwah/myself. On the other hand you have the interest question which is more generalized and where I think you would run into the bigger problem and not just about getting a bad Senator, but potentially no Senator. We have had races like these before.

The amendment is friendly.

I have another concern that should be addressed and that is ensuring review or of potential of review of policy footage by either Internal Affairs or some such to ensure that the desired effect is achieved. I mean if they know iti s not going to be taken seriously and that footage will never be reviewed, it decreasing the benefit in terms of reduced police violations of procedure/abuse as only a law suit will make such forthcoming and we know certain people, the poor and minorities, those with records, and illegal aliens would be reluctant to pursue action. Even on a randomized basis, a review by Internal Affairs or some such would provide the desired inducement.

If we have come to the point where we are willing to just trash the position, then surely it is time to take the gloves off and go crazy before doing so.

Generally turnover is high, with the occassional bore/TNF/bgwah/Duke that can stretch it out to two years continuously.

No one has been able to stomach it longer.

No one except me.


The problem with this is that it could cause seat filling problems. Even when it looked like I was doomed with no internet late last month, there was little interest in taking the seat and Maxwell can correct me if I am wrong, but basically if I had failed in such there would have been something of a scramble to find someone. 

Regions go through ruts and shrinking the potential poll candidates, particularly when aside from myself, there has not been a problem with people long remaining in this chamber doesn't seem like a good move.

Plus I have full faith in the people of the IDS to elect their Representatives.

If you have any recommedations for alternative clauses or texts for portions or all of the present text, go ahead and post them for review (don't offer them as amendments basically) and that way we can formulate an acceptable design more quickly possibly.

Unfortunately my work hours have been changed for today and for tomorrow so I will have some time tomorrow evening to work on this after I get off and then again probably on Saturday morning.

20  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Solving Long Term Unemployment Act (Debating) on: October 28, 2014, 01:54:54 am
Abstain

I don't feel comfortable being a potential deciding vote on this bill. I missed a lot of the discouse (that week before I got my internet back, and was either working or neighbors were out of town) and whilst I have doubts about the structure of this particular bill, I am fully aware of the need to address the long-term unemployed.

You were a great Senator for the short time that you were with us. I hope that some day you will return to the chamber. Smiley
22  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Windjammer for senate (Thank you!) on: October 28, 2014, 01:47:51 am

23  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Marokai/Antonio V: Let Us Cling Together. on: October 28, 2014, 01:46:56 am
You ran a good race man.

Though you did not win, I hope you both will maintain a presence in the game. Smiley


Also, I would be remiss if I did not reference the continuation of the curse I vexed you with in twenty ten. By which I mean the imminent second installment of Governor John Kasich. Tongue
