76  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE1: Term Limits Amendment (final vote) on: August 13, 2015, 10:33:45 am
FYI, I fully support term limits for the office of Northeast Governor.

We do not need a Governor for life just because a particular Governor may have the support of the largest party or largest coalition of parties in the region.

I am very pleased to see that this bill has such tremendous support in the Assembly.

Most of you know me, for better or for worse.  Smiley

Governor Pikachu has asked me to serve in the Assembly until the end of this term to fill the vacancy that exists, and I have accepted.

It is a privilege for me to continue my work as a servant of the people of the Northeast.

I look forward to working with each of you.

Thank you Governor for the opportunity to serve the people of the Northeast yet again.

It is a privilege for me to be a servant of the good people of the Northeast.

I, Winfield, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of Northeast Representative, and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect, and defend the Constitutions of the Republic of Atlasia and the Northeast.

Mr. RG Türkisblau

As this mock parliament game is for South America, my question is, is there a mock parliament game for the U.S. or is there in fact going to be a mock parliament game for the U.S.?

So, what happens if a party wins more seats than it has candidates? If this poll were the real election, the Whigs would be entitled to two seats, but have only one person on their list (Clarence).

Fear not, I have joined Clarence in the Whig Party.

Clarence has invited me to join the Whig Party, and I have accepted his invitation.

If we are going to hold a Constitutional Convention, then we had better not end up with the same thing we have now after much talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk!

There would be a lot of very disappointed participants.

To clarify, Dubya was apprehended on a DUI, however, to be perfectly clear, he did not spend any time in jail.

The Democrats have no one to blame but themselves and their racist policies for their loss in 1876.

I see what you mean, Kal and Classic.

What we need is to increase activity, and the fact is that that's hard to do, as it means bringing in new members. Campaigns to increase the number of Atlasians would increase the risk of socks, probably, but at this point I think it's worth the risk.

What we need are good leaders who can organize us to win this nation back. We need a Lincoln. I have an idea or two, but I'll keep them to myself for now (and no, it's not me).

Ahem.

But if there is to be a GM, then there must be boundaries set over which the GM cannot exceed.

These arrests, threats to the lives of public officials, nuclear holocausts, I believe, are counter productive, and do not lend anything of value to the game.  The game is elections and government, and we do not need such events to provide for the needs of the citizens.

Besides, the legislators and public servants in the game are always presenting bills, debating bills, passing or defeating bills, and bringing in legislation to serve the needs of the citizens, as they see it.

With a new Atlasia, if there is to be a GM, then the pronouncements from the GM must be realistic, not silly and ridiculous.

I as well believe that legislation must not be silly or ridiculous, but that would be difficult to enforce in a democratically elected legislative body.
92  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: A Modest Proposal on: August 09, 2015, 03:10:59 pm
2 regions is too much of a decrease, I think. 3 or 4 makes more sense; we could make it smaller after that if it really is needed.

I don't understand how someone can want more activity, yet also want the GM to be abolished. Yes, I think the GM needs to be regulated, but a fact that this is struggling in activity is that only, what, 20 or so people (totally made up that statistic) are active, so our to-do lists are derived from activities from those people. In the real world, the government's to-do lists are derived from activities from over 300 million people in the US, plus about 7 billion others in the rest of the world. My point is that the GM needs to be there to simulate those other people, and the results of bills. Otherwise it's just people making meaningless laws for a dormant country where no one does anything.

I agree with more than 2 regions, 3 might be good for starters.

As to the GM office, we cannot have a GM who goes around arresting public officials right and left and who wipes out millions with nuclear bombs.

In the final analysis, after all, Atlasia is an election and government sim, and everyone knows that.  Those who participate in the sim do so because they enjoy elections and government sims.

It does not really need a GM in my view, because the game is elections and government.

Since things in Atlasia seem to be reaching crisis proportions, any further interest in my solution?  Smiley

If Snowstocker is guilty of these atrocious crimes, he must be quickly tried, sentenced, and banned for life from this republic, all in one day.

I recommend he be banished to the gulag on a permanent basis.

He's already banned from the forum.

That's about the equivalent to the gulag.  Smiley

Trump's antics and appeal has a shelf life.

He can only go so far and for so long with his campaign, which even now cannot really be considered as a serious candidacy.

At some point early on, his campaign is going to implode under the realization that his views and rhetoric are bizarre and over the top.

Jeb has an excellent chance of becoming the nominee.
