I would like to ask the Prime Minister why he is a toady of the American imperialists. Explain yourself, bourgeois swine!

Mr. Speaker,

I again draw the chamber's attention to the irony of this bogus claim. The member standing before you is a communist, attempting to label the people's Government as "imperialist" and tether it to the "Americans."

This communist before us sympathizes with one of history's most evil empires. The Soviet Union, responsible for tens of millions of dead innocents, launched invasion after invasion in the name of the same revolution this man says he'd like to see brought to South America.

Beyond the crimes of the past, these vanguards of the revolution are responsible for great tragedies of the present. Each day, millions upon millions of Atlasians are forced to endure oppression where they know nothing of freedom. This is the Red crime against the present.

I reject out of hand the premise of the Member's question.

Shouts from the Gallery:

Hear! Hear!

Take that Commie oppressor!

No question.

Too narrow a definition of the family for me. Single parents, grandparents, aunts etc raise children too. The nuclear family as some 'ideal' is the worst thing ever inflicted on society.

Worst thing?  Oh come now.  There are countless things worse. Disease, ignorance, hunger, war, pestilence, loneliness, servitude.  Need I continue?  I could go on and on, but you get the picture.

Congratulations.

You are probably the first flip flop Senator elected in the history of Atlasia.

I am proud to be the first of many to publicly endorse this great Atlasian, Clarence, for President.

Let us make Atlasia great again, let us elect Clarence President.

Moderation and populism.

As for Libertarianism, we will pay lip service to get their votes, but we really don't want their wacky ideas in our platform or in government policy.

As for Conservatism, the more useful and sensible conservative policies will become government policy.

Classic Conservative, I do not mean to rain on your parade, but there is no convention center in the world that will hold 500,000 people.

Perhaps you mean 50,000.

Anyway, congratulations.

Congratulations on your reelection, Senator Cris.

Well deserved.
13  Forum Community / Mock Parliment / Re: Capitan Afleitch of the Armed Forces of South America. on: August 24, 2015, 05:42:02 pm
Mr. afleitch, does the armed forces have to be approved by Parliament before it is activated?

Perhaps the Minister of Foreign Affairs would like to comment on this as well.

The armed forces exist irrespective of Parliament. The armed forces exist to protect the Workers.

But Captain Afleitch, loosely speaking, our society consists of the upper, middle, and lower classes, not simply what you refer to as the Workers, or, what may be referred to as the working class.

Does this armed forces, or this militia, not have the responsibility to protect all in society, not simply one group in society?  And if not, these armed forces or this militia are surely not performing their full and proper function in society, i.e. to serve and protect all members of our society.

We can assume that the new parliament will be enacting legislation to protect the rights of workers and others in society.

And not to be difficult, but simply for matters of clarification, please explain from where, or from which authority, the rank of Captain has been bestowed upon you.

Thank you Mr. Minister.

That brings some clarification to this matter.

Do we have a Navy???

And what about an Air Force?
16  Forum Community / Mock Parliment / Re: Foreign Office on: August 24, 2015, 01:12:37 pm
Foreign Minister SJoyce, as you are also responsible for defense, and inasmuch an army has now been instituted and installed, it would appear, by Mr. afleitch, the nation requires an answer from you regarding the validity of this army, and as to whether this army is in fact legal, or if it requires the sanctioning of Parliament, or if it requires your approval as the responsible minister in cabinet?

Please reply as people in this new republic need to know the answer to this question.

23  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE3: Defend Our Gorgeous Environment (DOME) Act (debating) on: August 21, 2015, 09:43:23 am
amendment:
Quote
Defend Our Gorgeous Environment (DOME) Act
1. The Northeast Department of Transportation is charged with defining, updating, and enforcing emissions tests and classes for all vehicles registered in the Northeast Region, with the results displayed by colored windshield stickers.
2. Northeast municipalities shall have the power to restrict traffic based on these emissions classes in any part or the entirety of their area.
3. Littering, vandalism, and related crimes, when committed within a Regional or National Park or any other such protected area in the Northeast Region, shall carry an additional fine of up to $25,000 if it substantially affects the environment, or up to $500 if it does not.
4. The Northeast Government shall allocate $2.5 billion for the purchase and restoration of additional nature reserves.

and i'm gonna extend debate on this.

representative winfield, does this adequately address your concern?

Thank you.

But I will not be voting in favor of this bill.

Restricting traffic is simply not on the radar for me.  It would have the effect of hampering business and commerce in the region, having a negative effect on the economy.

If someone gets the wrong color sticker, what are they supposed to do, buy a new automobile?  No, not practical, most people simply do not have the money to get a more fuel efficient automobile.

The fines proposal is subjective, and open to interpretation.

I simply do not see this bill as being feasible, practical, or enforceable.

25  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Survey Atlasia: August At-Large Senate Election 1st Preference Poll on: August 20, 2015, 02:46:46 pm
Me of course.

I really wanted to support you Kalwejt, but then I realized that Atlasia can simply not afford to have a flip flopper on such a massive scale as yourself in the halls of power, and consequently, I found myself having, in all good consciousness, to support someone else. 

I sincerely hope you can see the difficult position in which I found myself, and that, someday, you will be able to find it in your heart to forgive me for the actions which I felt I must take in this very difficult and wrenching situation.
