Do as you please.

But whatever new amendment is passed, if any, that will become the new rule which must be followed.

Running for reelection to the Northeast Assembly.

I think you're too late to get onto the ballot (you have to declare on or before the Wednesday before the Friday before the election Friday).  But you certainly can accept write-ins.

You really want to fight this? Is this really worth your time?

He is right.

It's like pulling someone over for speeding when he's going 31mph in a 30mph zone.

The rules are what the rules are.  If you don't like them, change them. 

What's the sense of having a constitution if we just ignore it when it seems convenient?

Well said cinyc.

Because enforcing rules like this discourage activity.

Without rules which need to be followed you have chaos, my friend.

No good can come from chaos.

It has been my pleasure to work with each of you.

I will now be going into political retirement for awhile.

I will, of course, continue to vote in elections and referendums.

Who knows, I may try to make a political comeback someday.

Running as Spiral's VP.

Now who am I going to endorse for NE Governor?

I withdraw my candidacy for the office of the President.

Obviously, I withdraw for VP.

Now who am I going to endorse for Vice President?

83  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is Hillary a decoy? on: February 16, 2014, 09:50:06 pm
No way.

Hillary wants to be President so bad she can taste it, even though she will be almost 70 at the time, and she is prepared to do anything to get it.

She feels entitled, and that it's her turn.

John McCain wanted to be President so bad that he could taste it, even though he was over 70 at the time, and he felt prepared to do anything to get it.

He felt entitled, and that it was his turn.

It is rewarding to see that Scott thinks so highly of of me and of my reasoning that he sees fit to emulate me.

Thank you.  I am truly humbled and honored.

85  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Romney; Bill Clinton embarrassed nation, breached responsibilities as an adult on: February 16, 2014, 09:34:11 pm
The truth of the matter is, and always will be, is that a married, middle aged man who was President of the United States carried on a sexual relationship with a 20 something bimbo, and who knows how many other bimbos over the years, while his wife sat home wondering where her husband was and what he was up to, while all the while he was cheating on her like some common philandering sexaholic.

To say Bill Clinton was an embarrassment to the nation is an understatement.  Bill Clinton was an absolute blight on the nation and his deplorable behavior was an unmitigated low point in the history of the Presidency.   
86  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: What happens to the Tea Party If the GOP wins back the White House? on: February 16, 2014, 05:06:39 pm
Once the Republicans achieve power again, they won't need these crackpots in the broken tea pot party. 

Some of the more severly politically sensibly challenged will be still be ranting and raving about this, that, and the other thing, but the sensible ones will fall into line.

The GOP will throw them a few scraps to keep them happy, and to keep their votes.

92  General Discussion / History / Which President came to the office most well prepared for the Presidency? on: February 15, 2014, 04:05:08 pm
Which President came to the office most well prepared and with the best qualifications for the Presidency?

Please discuss.

I am going to say Nixon.  I know he has been reviled as one of the most, if not the most corrupt President in U.S. history, but in sheer qualifications and background, I would say he ranks right near the top in terms of his preparation and qualifications for the Presidency.

95  General Discussion / History / Re: Which President had the most meteoric rise on: February 14, 2014, 12:55:29 am
Actually, it's fairly easy to not say Obama.  His childhood while hardly usual was not particularly deprived, so quite a few presidents have him beat there.  In terms of just his political career, the rise of Chester A. Arthur is hard to beat.  While he had been active in party politics for a couple of decades, his first elected office was as Vice President.



Although from Illinois State Senate to U.S. Senate to U.S. President all within the space of 12 years not too shabby.
96  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE1: Northeast Statute Maintenance Act (Debating) on: February 13, 2014, 12:46:40 am
I as well will not support this bill for creating the office of Record Keeper.

I am not so sure we would be successful in finding an individual willing to put in the time and effort necessary to carry out this task.

If anyone is willing to do it properly, let them do it.
97  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE2: Another SOAP amendment (Debating) on: February 13, 2014, 12:34:41 am
I support the Cincinnatus SOAP amendment.

It is important the Assembly determine the rules governing the Assembly without any outside approval required.  The approval of the Governor should in no way be required.

I also agree that if members of the Assembly can change their vote, it must clearly be within the 48 hour parameter, and must be strictly enforced.  Personally, I am a proponent of once a vote is cast it is cast, but if a majority believe vote changing should be allowed, then it must be within a strict, and enforced, time frame.
