At first I thought you were referring to the NPD and wanted to ask what the f**k?

All right, after reading most of the comments, this is the most compromise version I could possibly think of:

Quote
1. The Departments of Justice and Internal Affairs shall be merged into the Department of the Home Affairs
2. All functions previously exercised by the Attorney General shall be bested into the Secretary of Home Affairs, with an exception of powers to bring charges and represent the government before the courts
3. The latter powers shall be vested into a non-cabinet position of Solicitor General, nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate
4. One person shall be allowed to serve concurrently as the Secretary of Federal Elections and Registrar General

What do you think?

I'll gladly respond to all points raised within a few hours. I'm tied at the moment.

Motion for a final vote.

Seconded
35  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Presidential Pardon Limitation Amendment (Debating) on: August 19, 2015, 08:59:32 am
What do you think of a final vote (it's not a motion)?
I will not support this amendment.


Neither will I. I can't see this working out.
36  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Presidential Pardon Limitation Amendment (Debating) on: August 19, 2015, 04:24:21 am
It is not from the President Polnut's of the world that we expect history making in the realm of executive excess.

That being said, I am somewhat sympathetic to the notion of balance of powers in this case. However, assuming the VP is independently elected, would still constitute the executive branch and would even acting in a cabinet position be placed in a hierarchical structure below that of the President nad there must be some means to preserve that sort of relationship in the VP amendment.

As for the pardon power, I would still like to hear more about this pardon board and how it woul operate were it not the Senate as Kalwejt framed earlier.

Hmm... for example a body of three members, one appointed by each branch of the government (that is President, Senate and the Supreme Court). Not a permanently working institution, conveing only when a pardon request has been made.

The President gives out few pardons so it would indeed be rarely used.

I'm not really advocating this, since I prefer the pardoning powers to remain with the president. Just an alternative.

Help me here, I can't keep track, is Kal a "right-wing malcontent" or a "dwarf"? Roll Eyes

Well, from Jeff Goldblum's PoV I'm certainly a dwarf, and from Mao's I'm definitively a "right-wing malcontent".
38  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Mideast Record-Courier Polls: Presidential Approval on: August 18, 2015, 04:33:46 am
I'm sorry, but to say "there's nothing he could've done" is simply not true. The Senate is working fine, at least two of our region are working fine. The drive for a Con-Con is continuing. As SoEA I've had to handle two major crises (India-Pakistan, RoN attacks) totally on my own simply because bore wasn't there.

Nobody is blaming bore for "breaking Atlasia". Our problems are much deeper, but when the President basically abdicated, while remaining in office, doesn't help to solve anything.

As I've said before, if you don't plan on doing anything, you should resign, so somebody else can have a shot. Otherwise, you're being an asshole toward everyone who wants to play, and despite malcontents' constant whining, there are many people who didn't give up.

She hasn't even started campaigning yet.

And? She broke federal law.

Says who? The voices in your head are not a valid source.

Pretty sure mishandling classified information is a federal offense.

Do you have any actual proof? And no, internet conspiracy theories doesn't count.

Tender Branson is not a real person. The account is just a clever mystification. Tender Branson was invented by some creepypasta addicts to scare the s**t out of people.

I don't want you banned, Tender. I want you arrested, tried and properly punished for all the sick and twisted things you've done.

I know the feeling. I left the government for the very same reason. Still, it's sad to lose a very competent GM like you Sad

At this stage, as she haven't really started campaigning and we still don't know if Biden is intending to run?

No.
