How many HPs will he get because of his last name?

FF, of course!

Hey New Candaland,

This bill needs to be introduced in the Mideast Assembly Thread:

Once you have done that, Speaker Spiral will open a thread for debate. Smiley

For reasons stated by Senator Windjammer, I hope the Senate rejects this amendment unless we apply it only to the President and Vice President.

Because of the way at-large senators are elected, whichever side (left or right) has more voters could easily recall those on the other side and replace them with their own, creating a 5-0 majority one way, which would not be an accurate reflection on the population at-large.

Echoing what MormonDem said - each individual will have the chance at some point to learn about God's plan. It is up to them whether they choose to be saved or damned.

Announcement of Lt. Governor Nominee
The search to find the next Lt. Governor of the Mideast was pretty quick! This individual is pretty new to the game, but has the energy and commitment needed to help put move this region forward.

I am pleased to announce that my running mate, the next Lt. Governor of the Mideast Region, is TDAS04!

You have been a wonderful leader in the Mideast. It has been an honor serving alongside you for the past few months, and I look forward to seeing what the future brings for you!
9  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Office of Former President Tmthforu94 on: December 19, 2014, 03:53:26 pm

After consideration, I have made the decision to run for Mideast Governor in the January elections.

The Mideast used to be the strongest region in Atlasia. During my last tenure as Governor, we saw exponential growth, competitive elections and became a forefront in Atlasia for heated, yet civil debates.

Unfortunately, 2014 did not treat the Mideast kindly. Thankfully, TJ and I have been able to put the region in the right direction for the past few months. But I hope to do even more.

This will not be a partisan stint - this race, my reason for running, is all about making the Mideast better. In the coming weeks I will outline some of my ideas for this office. Regardless of your political beliefs or affiliation, I am ready to work with anyone who has the same goal that I do: return the Mideast to it's greatness.

In the coming days, I will be looking for a Lt. Governor who shares this commitment. Once again, regardless of your political beliefs, if you have the desire to help make this region great again, I urge you to contact me about the position.

I will be a candidate for Mideast Governor.

I would like to nominate Muncie, Indiana, and Defiance, Ohio.

Splendid news!

Hopefully she will take the plunge for Senate in 2016 if McCain retires.

Baldwin 12 vs Johnson 10:

Baldwin 12- 57.9% (1,547,104)
Johnson 10- 42.1% (1,125,999)

Yes, because comparing results in a presidential election year to one that isn't is always a good thing.

- Recruit a better candidate in Iowa
- Different strategy for Udall's campaign - focus heavier on defining Gardner earlier as too conservative. Don't focus so heavily on Personhood
- Encourage Pryor to retire and cede that seat. Also, don't spend as much in Kentucky, Georgia, and Louisiana. Focus more heavily on North Carolina

In whole, resign yourselves to the fact you are going to lose the Senate majority, but keep your number at 48-49 instead of 46.

Ludicrous - no way Romney is down by 12

Why tie this to grade point average?
I'm guessing it was meant to be an encouragement for students to do better, and to save on costs. I don't think it's ideal either. Would anyone support tying the number of universities to family income instead, or in addition to GPA?

In addition to might be a good idea.

The cost of processing information on family income with this might be more expensive than its worth. I think though that those with lower scores might be just as in need of having multiple applications, given they stand a chance of not being accepted. If we do want to encourage students work and focus on those who have a good chance of being accepted into a school, then how about just doing 2 free applications for all those with a GPA of 2.5 or higher?
I would be fine with that.

August 1st - 4th:
The DNC Convention kicks off in Cleveland, Ohio. The convention's theme is "A Stronger America", and various marketing ploys are used to highlight Ohio's strengthening economy.

Night One: Minority Leader Steny Hoyer, Senator Alison Lundergan Grimes, Governor Mitch Landrieu, Xavier Beccara (Primetime), Bill Clinton (Prime Time)
Nigh Two: Julian Castro, Terry McAuliffe, Gwen Graham, Barack Obama (Prime Time)
Night Three: Martin O'Malley, Brian Schweitzer, Russ Feingold, Martin Heinrich (Prime Time)
Night Four: Maria Cantwell, Kamala Harris, Sherrod Brown, Hillary Clinton (Prime Time)

The Democrats used their convention to highlight youth and diversity in the party - how will it affect the race going forward?

National Poll:
Hillary Clinton/Martin Heinrich - 49%
John Kasich/Marco Rubio - 46%

No. Roberts main achilles in 2014 were Governor Brownback, residency issues and the far-right being unhappy with him, and none of those were issues in 2008. The 2008 environment was probably better for Republicans than the 2014 one was, at least in Kansas.

If I win and Polnut loses I will resign so Polnut can be appointed to fill my seat. He deserves a win more than me
Class act.

I ran in a race not too long ago

Nice. What kind of race was it?
A 5k. I started running distance in September. I'm up to running about 5-6 miles a day now. Hoping to do a half-marathon in April.
