11702  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Tmthforu94/Dallasfan65 Administration: Public Office on: January 01, 2011, 11:39:12 pm
I would like to dedicate the following speech to everyone in this game who has helped me get to where I am today. To my friends on all sides of the aisle, thank you for being there for me, politically, mentally, and even emotionally. I owe my Atlasian life to you.

Today, I am officially launching my campaign to become the next President of Atlasia. I am running for this office because I am tired of standing by while our federal government continues to be less productive. I am positive that we can have a stronger, safer, and better future for Atlasia, but not without thoughtful, deliberate, and substantial change. This decision wasnít made lightly, and it isnít rushed. When thinking of the ideal President, I think of someone who is actively engaged in the game and committed to improving Atlasia as a whole. I think of someone who is ready to work with all parties and all sides of the political spectrum to improve this game, and this nation. I believe I would bring both of those qualities to the White House, and many more.

 In recent terms, we have had inactive or divisive Presidents, some bitterly partisan. In recent months, Atlasians have sought leadership in the executive branch which has been lacking. We are witnessing a lack of concentration on the issues, and people are more focused on making friends with everyone than they are pushing for real reform in our government. Deserving Atlasians are losing in races to members who have uttered little substance. We see elected officials, as well as private citizens, engaging in behavior more appropriate for a elementary classroom than a hall of ideas. Itís time for leadership that will be the beginning of a renewal and revival in the game.

Two main problems stick out in this game for me, and the first of those is our economy. The Game Moderator continues to give us troubling information, with an unstable stock market and high national unemployment number. On top of that, a national crisis has emerged, as China is considering a move to considerably reduce, or even eliminate, further lending to finance our national debt. If such a thing were to happen, our current recession would plunge into a depression. Very little has been done, however, by our federal government on such an important issue, with only our SoEA taking any action. One of my first priorities as President would be coming to a peaceful solution with the Chinese government, one that will prevent us from going into a depression. Secondly, I would urge the Senate to reduce the size of government, as even our center-left GM has indicated government is just too big. I will also be outlining more economic proposals throughout this campaign.

Our second problem is activity in the game. Back in `09, this game was at its peak. However, in the recent months, the game has turned stagnant. Our Senate is being held together by 1 member, with only a couple other Senators making a solid effort. Some would argue that several of our regional governments are more active than the federal government. A newbie-friendly game is what I envision in Atlasiaís future, unlike the current, where big requirements must be met and you are faced with public scrutiny. In the coming days, I will go more in-depth on my plan to bring activity and competition back into this game.

I joined this game nearly 2 years ago in January of 2009. By July, after briefly serving as a member of the Mideast Assembly, I was graciously appointed to the Senate by Governor Inks. In every post I made in the Senate, I had the best interests of the Mideast region in mind, and truly fought for the region in the Senate. I was a bi-partisan voice in a partisan chamber, and was never a rubber stamp for either side. That strategy apparently paid off, as I was reelected twice with over 60% of the vote. As my 3rd term began winding down, I decided to seek the Governorís mansion, and am still serving in that position today. I have fought for my region, specifically in the stimulus bill. And while legislation has been passed that is more conservative than I would have liked, I have been an active member of our government, and have fought for compromise and moderation every step of the way. I will take these same, common-sense principles with me to the White House.

I look forward to an exciting election cycle. Hopefully I will be able to convince to a majority of Atlasians that I am the best person to lead this nation into the future. For years, RL, not Atlas time, this game has been dominated by one side, and many are getting bored. Hopefully we can break both trends in this election, if not just one. To all Atlasians who want a true bi-partisan government where all voices are heard, I ask for your vote and support.

It's time we start investing in our future, instead of looking at the past.

Thank you all, and Dave Bless!

He didn't mean it like that, I'm sure! He probably just didn't know the situation very well, or his publicist told him to say that. He couldn't have actually seriously meant that. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if the entire thing was fabricated. A myth...

So someone else running will cause Durbin not to? Barack Obama?

I went to a gathering of friends, around 7 of us. We watched the Snooki drop on MTV. It was pretty hysterical.

I hereby appoint Taft4Prez as Deputy Secretary of Forum Affairs.  Please commence a confirmation hearing.
A great appointment, Mr. President! Smiley
11710  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: What Republicans can beat Obama? on: January 01, 2011, 01:57:15 pm
If the economy stays the same, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, John Thune, John Hoevan, Mitch Daniels, Mike Pence, and Tim Pawlenty could all beat him. For Palin or Gingrich to win, the economy would have to sour, and Obama's approval ratings would need to be lower than 35%, I'd say.
11711  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Abolition Movement: The Quest to End Regional Inactivity and Indifference on: January 01, 2011, 12:55:44 pm
Regional legislatures are an awesome way to get people involved in Atlasia. Normally people will be more active if they have a position or title, some sort of responsibility. This gives them just that. We've had some great members get their start in the Assembly and go on to even be President!

You're 100% right. I can personally testify about that. Wink
Yes, you are a great example. I mean, I even got my start in the Assembly (though I was promoted to Senate a couple days later due to a vacancy). Some of our greatest Atlasians were in the Assembly, such as Purple State, HappyWarrior, Franzl, Peter, and Badger. I mean seriously, for all we know, Badger may never have gotten as active and productive to the game as he is now if he hadn't had that opportunity to serve in an elected legislature. Wink

Great news, as this'll hopefully push Capito towards the Senate instead.

This gives them just that. We've had some great members get their start in the Assembly and go on to even be President! The Mideast's has been going on for some time, but it'll hopefully begin working the same way in the other 3 regions that have elected legislatures. It worries me that some of our most influential members are suggesting that they're useless.
11714  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Labeling Requirements Act (At Final Vote) on: December 31, 2010, 07:15:13 pm
I really like Section 3 of this bill, even though I consider it more of a regional issue than a federal issue. It makes it easier to find the most unhealthy and least expensive meal on the menu. Smiley Red Lobster has it, and I think it's great. Also a good provision to help Atlasia watch her weight, as many people would hopefully make healthier choices with the calories listed.
11715  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Confirmation Hearing: Ben for Ambassador to the GTO (Voting on Confirmation) on: December 31, 2010, 05:10:11 pm
Serious question: Has there been one bill/confirmation this session where all 10 Senators voted?

11717  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: For GOP, end of preordained candidates on: December 30, 2010, 11:54:57 pm
Nice article.

This is one of the big reasons I honestly believe Mitch Daniels has a chance.  The party is in turmoil; "heir apparents" won't be shoo-ins in 2012.
Something else many probably don't know about him which will look good in the GE is that he's pushing for a very bi-partisan session, and is letting Democrats into leadership positions.
11718  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Hypothetical Republican Primary Poll on: December 30, 2010, 11:43:00 pm
Mitt has always personally been pro-life, there was just a time when he believed the government shouldn't prevent abortions from occuring.

Notice my eyes in this picture. Anytime I'm in Georgia, my eyes get swollen and baggy, and are in constant pain. Allergies is my guess.

11722  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: I just got a call from the Republican National Committee on: December 30, 2010, 09:57:57 pm
I received a call from a local Tea Party group, asking who I'd support. Some of the questions were:
"Are you a registered member of any political party?" No
"Are you planning on voting in the 2012 primaries?" Yes
"Of the following candidates, which would you most likely support (insert list of candidates?" Mitt Romney
"Second choice" Mitch Daniels
"Third Choice" Olympia Snowe

They then asked me about the 2012 Senate race, in which I stated I would unwaveringly support Dick Lugar. And of course, they start questioning about Dick Lugar's record, in which I respond that he's done more for our country than any generic Tea Party candidate will ever do, and hung up.

I've decided I don't want to leave Montana. It is the state I love, and I just can not "leave" it. This is my home.
Montana loves you too, Teddy. Smiley

None of them are likely, because Democrats won't win a CDin Nebraska. I'd probably go wiht 2, though.

For Bachmann to win in Minnesota, Obama would have to be losing in an epic landslide and a lot more Senate seats would be lost by the Democrats. How did the most popular US Senator lose to one of the most controversial Congressmembers?
