I don't know if there's any mechanism for change of venue, but I'd like to point out it would be hard to complete a fully impartial jury in Pacific which was sharply divided during the very crisis.

I oppose life sentences. I don't like the idea of kicking people out permanently. Given the realities of this game, this is effectively a death penalty for a player, something we supposedly rejected in our constitution. Yes, such person can be theoretically pardoned, but let's not kid ourselves: executive acts of mercy are extremely rare.

Three years is a very long time for someone to mature and rehabilitate. It's perfectly reasonable.

I'll support Yankee's amendment.

Giving up a built nuke would be too humiliating to agree to.

South Africa managed to do it without 'humiliation'.

They were also allies with the USA in a world where basically everyone else hated them. They gave up the nukes a year after they reached an agreement with Cuba to stop sending troops to Namibia.

South Africa doesn't really compare to Iran so much as it compares to Israel in a world where they somehow manage to use diplomacy to be 100% safe from their neighbors

Actually, the main reason for South Africa to dismental their nuclear arsenal was their government's fear of it falling to the hands of Black government.

Thank you for the Improve Our Wiki Act of 2015, Senator! It looks nice! Good luck on getting it passed!

And thank you and Castro for the idea!

Both are solid legislation. I do have some concern though about section 2 of the GM won. How would the PResident react to foreign policy story he generated?

I see your point, it is indeed the conflict of interests. My original intention was to provide a constant leadership for the DoEA in case of prolonged vacancy, as we've seen when Potus resigned.

I, Kalwejt, do solemnly affirm that I will faithfully execute the office of At-large Senator, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of Atlasia, so help me Dave.

Since my opponents has conceded, I won't hold my victory remarks.

It has been a very brief, but exciting campaign nonetheless. A boring, uncompetitive races were long a serious problem for the game, so I'm glad we've a close run this time Smiley

I'd like to personally thank my opponents, DKrol, Truman and Poirot. Each one of you, guys, ran a strong, yet civil campaign and especially Krol's performance was remarkable. I hope he'll reconsider his decision to take a long leave from the game. Initially I've been quite unfair toward him, but I realize now that he's a fine player and I hope we can have some fun together in the future.

I must thank Governor Windjammer and RG Griffin for their invaluable help in running this campaign. You cannot prevail without friends.

Last, but definitively not least, I want to thank every voter that gave me an eligible preference. Given how narrow this was, don't ever underestimate the power of your vote!

Once officially certified, I'll get on with the job, doing everything that's in my power to rebuild Atlasia.

Lol, the second person just voted after the time expired.
22  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Poirot for At-Large Senate on: July 06, 2015, 07:26:47 am
Well, Poirot, this was perhaps your strongest performance so far and I'm impressed Smiley People like you who don't give up, regardless of the obstacles, are truly the strength of this game.

Hope you will carry on.
23  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: BK Analytics: Special Election Tracker July 2015 on: July 06, 2015, 07:24:19 am
You won by 2 according to me.

So likely by 3-4 (because it appears I haven't counted all the votes)

Wow, it was really close after all. I'm really curious of the official final count.
24  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: DKrol For Senate on: July 06, 2015, 07:20:26 am
I will wait for the official vote count before saying anything else.

So will I. But in a meantime, regardless of the final count, I'd like to personally thank you for waging such a strong, yet civil, campaign. The winner of this election is an Atlasian democracy.
25  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: BK Analytics: Special Election Tracker July 2015 on: July 06, 2015, 07:08:45 am
What are the final results?

(I do suck in counting stuff Tongue )
