Notice
We just got about a half an inch of rain here, and it's supposed to go well before freezing tonight. Tomorrow, we're expected to get a wintery mixture of freezing rain and snow. School has already been cancelled for tomorrow, and teachers were saying today we may not even be back this week. I'm informing you all this because there is a high risk I may be without electricity, thus, no Atlasia for me. Sad Just a heads up so you guys don't think I've left town here.

"Across the board" spending cuts is code for "I don't know what to cut but this gets me out of any of those questions."

Maybe he just doesn't want to be bothered with the constant harrassment the obnoxious, militantly socialist wing of the Atlasian left would throw at him. Or maybe he really wants to cut most programs. You fellas have done such a good job growing gov't that listing all of the items to cut is practically impossible.

If there are so many evil socialist programs on the books, it should be even easier to single out programs for slashing.
As Iíve said, Iíve had a rough couple of days, so I havenít really had the time to. With the ice storm thatís hitting us now, I may not even be able to get on a computer for a couple days, so who knows?  Since youíre getting on to me for being slow on a response, I have a question for you regarding your speed in your current job: Why has the Senate Statue not been updated at all since youíve announced your candidacy? Nothing the current Senate has passed is even listed, let alone having a specific page. Are you just waiting to cram it in the free time youíll have after the Presidential election? Tongue Because this is inconvenient to anyone whoíd like to see laws currently being passed in the Senate. I also didnít notice the recent court case on Wiki either, but perhaps I just didnít look hard enough on that one? I sincerely hope this can be updates in the near future. I realize the job can be stressful sometimes, especially when dealing with court cases. But it's still a requirement for the AG.

When Inks is elected, who becomes Dean. All other 4 have not had consecutive terms. Do we go by overall seniority/presence in the Assembly since the foundation of the Assembly?
I knew I couldn't stay away from here for long! Tongue

Since all four other Assemblymembers are newly elected, it'll go by who swore in first, not overall seniority. Therefore, Swedish Cheese will be the Dean of the Assembly.

If members on the left really want to lower our national deficit, I expect them to be supportive of lowering government spending in the next session. And not just in specific areas, but across the board. If we truly want to solve this crisis, every program is going to have to tighten their belts a bit.

Of course, of course. Taxes are evil and spending cuts are the Holy Graal. And anyone who thinks otherwise is insane.

Excessive hyperbole at its finest, but of course, it is being used to advance the goals of the far left, as such it is perfectly legitimate.

There are plenty of legitimate reasons to oppose my bill, but the point Tmth was making was purely ideological. He basically said "the only way to solve the deficit is to cut spendings", which whatever are your economic views, is just not true.

We have the choice, stop pretending we haven't and let's discuss the options.
ďPurely ideologicalĒ? LOL. Youíre completely distorting my position. Iíve never said taxes are evil, and Iíve stated in this campaign that I wouldnít support large tax cuts on Atlasians until we get the national debt under control, which wonít happen over night. Atlasia already has very high taxes, and I disagree with your opinion that we should be placing more of a financial burden on the upper class than we already are. In order to solve this crisis, both sides are going to have to work together: Conservatives will have to make concessions on tax cuts, and liberals will have to make concessions on government spending.

I've stated before I plan on proposing cuts to defense. I will outline several specific cuts my administration will support in the future, certainly before the election. I've just had a rough few days, and haven't had the time to do it yet.

I was in Student Council for much of Elementary. Tongue I'm also Junior Class President, as well as a couple other random club positions I can't remember at the current time.

I have been approached to run for Student Body President next year, because the person widely expected to run, well, isn't like by a group of people. I probably won't run though, as I'm not entirely certain that I could win. The only reason I would is for scholarships.

In an attempt to get this election more focused on policy...

What is your opinion on current registration requirements, and if elected, would you support the status quo or stricter/looser requirements?

A question from The Porcupine:

If you were president right now, would you veto or sign into law the current Progressive Tax bill proposed by Antonio?
I would absolutely veto it. My understanding was that progressive taxation is to make things fair. This is a direct attack on the wealthy, and it punishes them severely. I think at this percentage, actually raising revenue and benefiting from this is highly unlikely. This bill does not encourage people to be successful. If you work hard, get some breaks, and become wealthy, you'll have to give most of it to the government. I just don't see that as okay, and it seems a majority of Atlasians agree with me on it.

If members on the left really want to lower our national deficit, I expect them to be supportive of lowering government spending in the next session. And not just in specific areas, but across the board. If we truly want to solve this crisis, every program is going to have to tighten their belts a bit.

The fact that you'd compare something as great as Jersey Shore with Real World is very offensive to me.

Well, if they were actually Italian, McCain.

Oh, no, of course not. Polls consistently showed Obama had his best levels of European support in Italy. Or maybe you think like me, Mr. Moderate: I accept that Italians answered the way they did in the polls but didn't actually mean it. Something like 85% for Obama? Please. And, yes, we all know why.

Anyway, now that the show is going to be in Italy, we should post another poll: how would the cast have voted in the 2008 Italian Parliamentary elections? They would have probably been totally united behind the PdL out of admiration for Berlusconi.
I am absolutely stoked about this! It'll be great to meet Vinny's family, and I hear they'll be spending a lot of time with them. Italy will never be the same...

I'm saddened by Dallasfan's vote for the "Freedom to Enjoy Oneself in Public Act."  Do you support your running mate's position?  Why or why not?
Similar to what we did in the Mideast, I would have removed the part about public intoxication. With that removed, I would also support the act.
11716  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Airport Renaming Act (In Debate) on: January 29, 2011, 10:27:51 pm
Was Ronald Reagan even ever president of Atlasia?

My point exactly. Glad we agree, Lief. Tongue

It was my understanding that we're supposed to be a successor state to the United States.
If that's the case, I'm not sure why the GM is basing regional numbers off of current RL numbers.

So, it's 2:37 right now in the morning. I randomly went to Terre Haute around midnight, bought some stuff, and now I'm home, and I don't feel like going to bed yet. I probably should, since I have work tomorrow afternoon, but I'm enjoying talking to a couple people (you know who you are) on AIM, and working on some other stuff, including the question Purple State has been harassing me about for decades. Tongue

Okay, now I have to get back to the point of this entire post. I was telling a friend about my birthday and how I'd refuse to speak to him for several days if he forgot to wish me a happy birthday, and then I did a sort of double take. My birthday is March 4th (Same as Clay's, as well as the former inauguration day). On top of that, it's the first Friday in March. Which means, if I am elected President, I will be swearing in as President of Atlasia on my birthday. Now, I'm not saying y'all should be voting for me just because of that, but I mean, come on! What's a better birthday present then becoming President on a game you love and want to see succeed? Okay, I may not "love" the game, but I really like and enjoy it.

Anyways, new slogan: Vote for Tmthforu94 so he can swear in on his birthday!

1. I don't know
2. Because it's more liberal there.
3. Because they like to protest stuff.
4. Because there's a bunch of conservative thugs down there.
5. Because a lot are narrow minded things or are from Alaska/South.
6. I don't know
7. Yes

I don't see how a revision of the state party platform would change the results of the election that much. Maine is Romney Country, and will remain Romney Country in 2012. And on the off chance Palin were to ever win it, it would be razor-thin, at least.

Other than that, this is good! Keep it up Smiley

Somewhat Disapprove
It seems like he's going to be a sell-out to the GOP, which has genuinely surprised me. A shame he doesn't have a spine, though.

Wait a minute. You, Mr. Blue Avatar, are concerned he's overly cooperative with the Republicans?

Some people just are never satisfied. Sad
First off, lime green. Get it right.

Secondly, I want a President with a spine. Barack Obama didn't have much of a spine the last two years when he couldn't get his party to cooperate with him on several occasions. Now he's turning to the Republicans to compromise. I just wish he'd take one stance, liberal or moderate, and stick with it. I bet if he wins reelection in 2012 and Democrats take majorities, he'll go back to liberal.
