My Congressional Map with no toss-ups. This map puts Republicans at 233 seats and Democrats at 202.

Does Brad Ellsworth earn the award for dumbest campaign move of the year by deciding to run in this race?
I think he would have lost his house race too, though it would have been ridiculously close. He could be trying to build up name recognition for a future statewide campaign.

Sink-Burris continues to poll shockingly well.

It looks like Nevada will go Republican, barring something crazy happening in the next week. Say hello to Senate Majority Leader Schumer!

a. I'm a bit uneasy with creating a sort of special distinction for math/science students, potentially at the expense of art, liberal art or social science students. Does the region want to give the message that math and science students are better, smarter and worth supporting over others?

b. Do we want to provide funding for the education of really rich kids whose mom and dads have more than enough cash on their own?

a. While I certainly believe other subjects are important (even I won't be taking math or science), it is becoming increasingly difficult to get students to major in these subjects. Two graduating students from my school last year is planning on majoring in math/science. Imagine how much higher that number would be with an incentive like this.

b. You make an excellent point, Hashemite. Perhaps including it only for families with an income of less than $250,000?

Victory Speech
October 25th


Cheers from the crowds
THANK YOU!!!! THANK YOU!!!!! Ladies and Gentleman, we did it! More cheers You did it, you knocked on doors, distributed that street money, went into neighborhoods, even those that weren't considered winnable. You distributed signs, flyers, and cards. You got your friends and family out to vote early and often. You not only walked you crawled over the broken glass to get to the polls. Latinos, African Americans, Asians, and whites. Young and old. RPPer, Populares, JCPers, DCPers, indies and members of various third parties. Today you sent a message that you want accountability, you want ethical and effective leadership. You want a committment to good gov't and promoting activity. In the next four months, I plan to best Regional Senator I can be.

Thank you and Dave bless you!!!!

Dixiecrats for Yank!!!!!!
Oh the irony...

Nevada. While both in Illinois aren't very good, neither are horrible, IMO. In Nevada, it's clearer the lesser of two evils, which is Angle in my opinion. This race would have been much easier if just about any other Republican had been nominated.

Question: If we vote to replace our logo, can we only vote for one of Teddy's, or can new ones be introduced?

You're a true Atlasian, and I thank you for taking part in this election with dignity and honor. I'm extremely proud to say that I voted for you. Smiley
11412  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Mideast Assembly Thread on: October 25, 2010, 03:20:41 pm
I know we have another bill being discussed, but I'd also like to bring this bill to the Assembly's attention that is currently passing in the Pacific:

Quote
Educational Incentives Act

1.The Mideast will provide funding for the college tuition of students that take math or science-related degrees, up to a sum of $10,000 per annum, for up to four years of college.

1.1 What constitutes a math or science-related degree shall be decided by the Mideast Department of Education in case of a dispute.

1.2 If the college tuition costs less than the maximum $10,000 figure per annum, the students will not be granted the maximum figure.

1.3 In the event that college tuition exceeds the $10,000 per annum figure, the student may apply for additional assisstance, to be considered on a case-by-case basis.

2. This program will run for six years, and may be renewed or altered at expiration.

3. This legislation shall be funded by a $0.25 levy on cigarettes.

I made a modification on what would be taxed. The Pacific is doing gasoline, but I find cigarettes more suitable. This way, we're killing two birds with one stones. We're encouraging Mideast residents to stop smoking by making it more expensive while also providing incentives for students to take math or science classes.

I am perfectly open to any modifications. Smiley

I'd like to rescue Oakvale from under the bus. While others may be deserving of it too, Oakvale is one JCP member I know who is extremely pleasant and fun to work with, while also being respectful.
11414  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: DoFE Tracker on: October 25, 2010, 02:48:33 pm
As JCP Northeast Chair, I'm glad to see that sanity reigns in the Northeast again, as we have wrestled control away from the Populares political machine that up until just days ago was thought to have a stranglehold on the region. I wish Senator-elect Eraserhead all the best.

Yeah, I was such an awful Senator.
Yes, you were, simply because of the party you were in. Despite being a zombie who rarely posts anymore in the Atlasia section of this forum, Eraserhead will be much better.

(sarcasm, obviously)
11415  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: TPTTAA Poll - Right Unity - How about now? on: October 25, 2010, 02:26:22 pm
It's hard enough to have two parties. Looking at the last election, what we really need now is loyal party members who won't backstab the party, both in the POP and RPP. That could have at least saved us a couple Senate seats.

Angry
I wasn't necessarily referring to you, as you never committed to A-Bob in the first place and your vote wasn't expected.
11416  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Office of Dallasfan65 on: October 25, 2010, 09:37:14 am
It's too bad you lost to a liberal who barely ran a campaign. You were a very fine Senator, and one of the bright spots in the right wing of Atlasia. I look forward to seeing great things from you in the future! Smiley

Statement from Governor Tmthforu94

I would like to warmly congratulate Fritz/Kalwejt on their election victory. While I did not vote for them, I hold both of them in very high regard, and they are two of my favorite liberals in the game. While I disagree with them on many policies, I know we'll get activity from them, which is always a good thing.

I also wish well to HappyWarrior. I hope he serves the Mideast well in the Senate and is active and committed to the game.

Governor Tmthforu94

Rebecca Sink-Burris is doing surprisingly well in the polls, garnering 5% here. I honestly believe she could reach high single digits on election night, which would be a huge accomplishment for the Libertarian Party. Unlike many of their candidates, she isn't a bad debator, especially compared to her opponents.
11419  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: A-bob for Mideast Regional Senate on: October 25, 2010, 09:26:36 am
A-Bob, the job you have done in the Mideast is simply remarkable. Though sadly, you weren't victorious in this election, I really hope you'll stay involved in the game. We need more people like you. You would have made an excellent Senator, who would have provided activity and excitement to the Senate. Sadly, the region did not think so. Sad

Good job on running a great race. You really deserve a higher position for all of your hard work. Maybe even becoming Governor in January. Smiley

I don't think I can officially resign without an official proclamation, so I think you intervened way too early and frankly, illegally.

Regardless of whether you resigned, you essentially abdicated your responsibilities for months now.

Regardless, that is none of the business of the federal government.
Lately, you've been really good at screwing people over.
11422  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: DoFE Tracker on: October 24, 2010, 08:31:24 pm
I think the right certainly underperformed... And you can't blame the JCP for that!

Still, it's what, Fritz +4 right now? Out of 100+ votes? That's certainly no landslide. It's pretty close, and close Presidential elections are always interesting.

I didn't intend to blame the JCP in my post, bgwah. It's all on us. Your party had a vastly superior turnout machine this time around, especially given most expected my ticket to win. Kudos to you.

My point is, the writing for yet-another-collapse of the right has been on the wall for a bit, starting when Barnes won his race. I remember warning people behind the scenes that event was a sign of things to come. I was right.
The JCP has a great turnout machine. It's mainly better because all of their zombies are active members of the site, while the right has to depend on less-active members getting online during election periods.
11423  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: 2010 Indiana Senate and Congressional Elections on: October 24, 2010, 08:13:40 pm
I would like to let it be known (as the only person who still gives a crap about this race) that I am officially changing my support. It was originally Stutzman, then went to Burris, then Coats, then Burris, and now it has gone to Brad Ellsworth.

Why?

Well first off, I don't really like him. His HCR vote killed his chances. But let's look at his opponents: Rebecca Sink-Burris questions if Jesus is the Son of God, and has some very radical positions. Dan Coats is a carpetbagger who will never see this state again after he's elected to the Senate. He's extremely rude and arrogant as well.

That really only leaves on choice: Brad Ellsworth. His voting record isn't too great, but he's the only person in this race with Hoosier values who will actually try and represent his constituents.

Congratulations. Really, the only republican candidate who had some principles was Stutzman. Do you think Ellsworth can pull it off?
You're absolutely right. It's a shame he lost, because he'd be a perfect representative for Indiana.

Ellsworth has no shot, but I think he'll perform better on election day than polls suggest. A lot of Republicans are very dissatisfied with Coats and may leave the Senate ballot blank. He's also turned off the homeschoolers. It's a real shame, because Ellsworth wouldn't be a terrible Senator.
11424  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: DoFE Tracker on: October 24, 2010, 07:53:00 pm
Blegh, this election has been terrible. You have a bunch of liberals bitching that they have no chance of winning (Kalwejt for VP, HappyWarrior for Senate) ever since the campaign season started, and now they all pull through and win.

Election have (hopefully) a consequences, Tmth Tongue
It's nothing personal against you. It's just extremely frustrating when we knew we'd have a tough fight while you guys blabbed about how you had no chance of winning. And where are we at tonight? A liberal victory.
