76  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie Sanders: "I Am Prepared to Run for President of the United States" on: October 18, 2014, 11:24:23 pm
As the Vice Presidential running mate for Senator Bernie Sanders in 2016, I put forward the name of Hilda Solis of California.  

A woman
A Hispanic
A progressive

Experienced

Served near the end of the Carter administration in the White House Office of Hispanic Affairs, where she was editor-in-chief of a newsletter during a 19801981 Washington semester internship, as part of her mater's degree program

At the start of the Reagan administration, became a management analyst at the civil rights division of the Office of Management and Budget, serving during 1981

Director of the California Student Opportunity and Access Program in 1982, to help disadvantaged youth gain necessary preparation for college

Elected to the Rio Hondo Community College Board of Trustees 1985

California State Assembly 1992-1994

California State Senate 1994-2001, the first Hispanic woman to serve in the State Senate,  sought to pass environmental justice legislation

U.S. House of Representatives for California 2001-2009, focused mainly on labor causes and environmental work
 
U.S. Secretary of Labor in cabinet of President Barack Obama 2009-2013  
 
Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, takes office December 1, 2014

Educated

California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, Bachelor of Arts degree in political science

University of Southern California, Master of Public Administration degree  
 

The only problem I see with Solis as the ideal running mate for Sanders is that Solis will no doubt be supporting Clinton in 2016.

Mr. Winfield, you're being particularly unreasonable today.

I know.  We should all just agree on everything and be one big happy family.

But that wouldn't be very much fun.

But I'm sure I can count on you for your first choice vote the next time I run for President, right?  Smiley

That is of course, if there is a next time.

Cranberry, what you and Alfred wanted to do was to carve up the Northeast Region, part of the sovereign nation of Atlasia, so that Alfred could achieve his territorial ambitions and as you believe would bring peace and stability to Atlasia and bring an end to endless legal disputes.

I believe it would do just the opposite.  It would open up the flood gates to every secessionist group in Atlasia to make demands and claim territory.

Further, I fail to see any basis for your belief that this compromise would bring an end to the endless legal disputes, as you call them.  The secessionists and Alfred have no basis whatsoever in law by claiming any part of Atlasia.  

No Chief Executive of any sovereign nation should ever make such a compromise.

No Chief Executive of a nation should ever give up part of that nation to appease anybody.

I know this went only as far as the proposal stage, however, your intent to pursue this proposal to the point of giving part of the Northeast, and by extension part of Atlasia, to the secessionists, was certainly evident.

I would think in any jurisdiction it would be illegal for the Chief Executive of the nation to enter into talks with an enemy entity with the proposal to cede part of that jurisdiction to said enemy.    

I know you have your reasoning, but I disagree with it.

No.

Cranberry does not have the authority to carve up parts of our regions.

And he'd better not mess with our beloved Northeast.

One word comes to mind for Cranberry's actions

Impeachment

Two words come to mind for the traitors actions

Banishment, Imprisonment

I know you're renowned for your flamboyant style, Winfield, but how the hell was that a treason? No action has been taken.

Beside, you want yet another succession crisis by impeaching him?

Kalwejt, thank you for your question allowing me to expand on and further explain my views in this matter. 

Just who exactly in the Republic of Atlasia, what government legislators or government officials, did Cranberry consult before announcing he was negotiating a compromise with the secessionists?

The compromise to my understanding was to carve up the Northeast Region giving part of it to the secessionists.

I do not call this negotiation.  I call this caving in to the demands of secessionists, traitors, and terrorists.

Since when does the Chief Executive of a sovereign nation, whose responsibility it is to promote national unity and regional understanding, give parts of the nation to those who have betrayed the very nation of which they are a part?

I believe under these circumstances the word treason applies.

Whether or not any action was taken, the mere fact the President himself entertained this proposal, of which he was clearly intent on pursuing previous to the very negative reaction from Atlasians from across the nation and from across the political spectrum, shows treasonous intent.

Now, Cranberry may not have looked at this action as treason, although it was most definitely extremely poor judgment on his part, but negotiating away part of a region, and by extension part of the nation of which he is Chief Executive, in the final analysis, amounts to the betrayal of the nation of which he has sworn to uphold.

As to the removal or resignation of the President from office, the Atlasian constitution specifies the line of succession, so there need not be any succession crisis.  I say need not be, but of course there will always be certain elements in the country who will try to take advantage of the situation, although always to no avail.     
83  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Office of Attorney General Bacon King on: October 18, 2014, 02:04:10 pm
Cranberry has committed treason against Atlasia and against the Northeast Region, by dealing with traitors and by presuming to carve up the Northeast Region.

How dare he.

He deserves nothing less than impeachment.

Because what Atlasia needs is yet another succession crisis...

I understand if you're arguing that Cranberry did extend his authority, but treason? Come on.

Mr. President,

I must commend you on a most momentous decision in the history of peace and non-violence!  You have done the hard but right thing in this trying time.  I hope that as short as your presidency will be, you have earned your rightful place among the true greats who have occupied this office!

-Mechaman

True greats who have occupied this office?  Are you serious?

He has sold out.  He has caved in to secessionists and traitors.

Fortunately, he is only a caretaker until, hopefully, a President with some guts takes charge, one who will not be intimidated by those who would break up this nation.

The carving up of the Northeast is a deplorable act by a President who should be showing leadership and working to keep Atlasia united, not splitting up the Northeast into fiefdoms because a traitorous secessionist has ambitions to rule over this territory.  

This is the complete opposite of leadership.  It is in fact a treasonous act by the very public official who should be doing the most for Atlasian unity, the President.  This President has sold out to traitors.  Cranberry should resign now instead of leaving office when the new President is sworn in.  

How dare this President presume to break up our Northeast Region to pacify these traitors and terrorists?  How dare he interfere with our territorial integrity?  How dare he even think about subjugating our citizens living in these areas of the Northeast to the will of these traitors?    

This is truly a low point in the history of Atlasia.        
89  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Flash Poll: Ganonsyoni Compromise on: October 14, 2014, 09:29:31 pm
Absolutely not.  This is a complete failure of leadership.

It rewards secessionists and traitors.

Nothing will vindicate Cranberry's actions.  Fortunately, he is but a caretaker President.

Perhaps the next elected President will show some guts and leadership.

Buffalo, New York:

It is with great joy that today, I can announce to the people of the Northeast Region and Atlasia at-large that we have finally found a compromise between the Government of Atlasia and the secessionist of Ganonsyoni. This area of Upstate New York, around Buffalo, Rochester and Utica is, together with the state of Vermont, to form an autonomous state of Ganonsyoni. This state will be part of the Northeast Region and the Republic of Atlasia, but will maintain a level of autonomy determined by its citizens and the Federal and Regional Government.
The following days, a board of negotiators comprised of Mr Alfred, leader of the Ganonsyonian people; Governor Talleyrand, SGO Mr X and yours truly will issue the binding legal contracts to establish Ganonsyoni.
Now, we can really say that we have achieved with peace and talk that could not be achieved with violence and aggression. Together, we united as one peaceful people, have made our nation whole and proud again. Long live Atlasia!

Have you all lost your minds?  Why are you even tolerating a secessionist movement of any kind?

These secessionists should be dealt with to the full force and extent of the law, including expulsion from Atlasia. 

Why are you even considering the carving up of the Northeast region and granting any level of autonomy to a select part of the region?

The rest of us will not have this level of autonomy granted to us.  You should not be rewarding acts of insurrection and revolt against Atlasia by granting a form of autonomy.

This is not leadership.  This is caving in to secessionists and traitors.

If you cannot stand up for Atlasia, then resign from office.

Hey, if you wanna marry your mother, father, sister, brother go right ahead perv.
So you're saying you agree that it should be legal?

No, however, it seems you and the rest of the pervs in the Governor's office and the Assembly want to marry your mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and that is why you have all voted to make it legal.

What can I say, the Northeast is being run by a group of pervs.

The fact the Democrats had the very popular First Lady campaign in Iowa shows they are not at all confident in retaining the seat.
Well, they're trailing in the polls there, so they shouldn't be.

Combine that with the fact that Ernst has superb qualifications to become a U.S. Senator it should be a good night for the GOP in Iowa.

McConnell.

We already know Grimes doesn't have the guts to come clean and tell the people she voted for Obama in 08 and 12.

If she doesn't have the guts to answer a simple question she certainly doesn't have the guts to make the tough decisions Senators have to make.
