Bitterness that the favorite son didn't win the nomination, I would presume.

Provides a lot of value to the forum.

My favorite senator and a role model for me.

Best
1. Arthur Capper (1915-1919)
2. Bill Graves (1995-2003)
3. John Martin (1885-1889)

I'm a homer so won't do worst. We've been pretty fortunate in Kansas over the years.

Hello,

I am so excited to see the new constitution pass that I have decided to run to be on the Southern Regional Committee. Cheesy With all due respect to the others running, I have more experience with regional governments than anyone else. I know the Mideast Constitution inside and out, primarily thanks to serving as governor for four terms, and wrote the Midwest's Constitution. Things haven't quite worked out how I would have liked in the Midwest, but I was able to take an inexistent government and make it functioning. I know what the necessary steps are to get the South up and running. Would appreciate your vote! Smiley

Just take Griffin's version - cutting it down to one seat makes it a competition. Cheesy

So much for his VP candidacy.
I don't see why not - two peas in a pod!

Final Statement from Governor Tmthforu94
I am happy to see that the new constitution has been ratified in the Midwest - as the fourth region to ratify it, it has officially passed nationally! Smiley

The Midwest has many great traditions and a cherished history - I have had the privilege of being in Atlasia to witness most of it. So many great citizens have been a part of this region, and it is an honor to have served as the final Midwest Governor.

Thank you all,

*hughughug*

Ah, my closure in the Midwest is what held it up. Sorry for the wait, but looks like now I can go down in the history books, right? The post that changed the game forever. Tongue

JCL, I like you personally, but no one gives a .
14  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Nay to Article 2 of the 4th Constitution on: May 16, 2016, 09:56:05 pm
JCL, amendments were made to the map. I offered one that was approved. I agree that there was a strong desire to adopt the CARCA map because that is where consensus was, but people weren't completely unwilling to changing the map.

I know who originally caused this, but for what it's worth, Arizona was missing from the very start, so it's on all of us for not catching it. Hopefully folks go ahead and approve them amendment, then we can add Arizona in later.

An additional reminder: regional elections will occur next weekend. Until there are results certifying that the new constitution has been approved, we will continue to operate business as usual. Showing your interest by running in these elections may have good fortune for you in later elections.
17  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: It is time to get this done. on: May 14, 2016, 12:21:29 am
Thank you for all of your hard work on this. It is my hope that the Midwest plays its part in making sure this is ratified.
18  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: ATTENTION, Governors and Election Officers on: May 14, 2016, 12:15:28 am
Not much of a fancy speech from me...

The vote has been opened in the Midwest. I have contacted ALL Midwest citizens encouraging them to vote. It is my hope that the Midwest makes its voice heard in this important and historic decision.

As Governor of the Midwest, I will open the upcoming vote for ratification of the new Constitution. Following that vote, I intent to resign my position, regardless of the outcome.

A lot of things are happening to me IRL, and as some of you may have noticed, my posting has dropped off significantly on the forum. Still around if you ever want to chat! Smiley

Excited to see this resurrected! Mitt '94!
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Past Election What-ifs (US) / What would it have taken for Sanders to win? on: May 11, 2016, 12:27:12 am
What would it have taken for Bernie Sanders to beat Hillary in 2016?

Here's how I see it: Bernie squeaks by in Iowa. With the added momentum, he's able to triumph in New Hampshire and narrowly pull it out in the Nevada before losing by 30ish% in South Carolina. Super Tuesday is still a good day for Clinton, though Bernie is able to keep her margins down a bit in the South and narrowly wins in Massachusetts. Clinton was able to bounce back, but people see Bernie as a viable threat. He furthers concerns in the Clinton camp by winning Michigan the following week. At this point, people view it as a horse race. March 15th is what seals Hillary's fate: Sanders comfortably wins in Illinois and Missouri while barely pulling it out in Ohio. Clinton struggles to win in North Carolina and wins Florida by a big margin. People now see the race tilting towards Sanders, and super delegates begin jumping from Clinton camp to undecided - some flip to Bernie. Clinton's campaign is resurrected by a win in Arizona, but struggles after losing several caucuses in a row and Wisconsin in early April. Clinton is able to defend her home turf, but a win by Sanders in Pennsylvania essentially seals the deal for him. Clinton remains in the race, but Sanders dominates the rest of the way, with Clinton only able to pick up New Jersey, New Mexico and D.C.



Not sure what the delegate math would look like with this, nor the popular vote. Though I assume it would give Sanders a narrow popular vote and delegate lead.
25  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Biggest Recruitment Failure of the Cycle on: May 08, 2016, 06:27:47 pm
IN: Susan Brooks
NC: Heath Shuler
I can buy Shuler, but Brooks wouldn't be any stronger of a candidate than Young is. Safe Republican, regardless, only a missed opportunity to get another female Republican in the Senate.
