Crime and Punishment

Except of the very few, most severe cases, such as SirNick or The Bakersfield Resident, I oppose implementing of a lifetime ban of voting and holding office. Due to the nature of the game, such punishments are pretty an equivalent of a death penalty (prohibited by our constitution) or, at the very least, lifetime banishment with no right to return, except for a presidential pardon, and such are granted very, very rarely. Very few people actually deserve to be kicked out permanently with no chance of rehabilitation and imposing the lifetime ban is extremely arbitrary.

Perhaps the best way to eliminate the ultimate factor, as well as arbitrariness, would be following a well-acomplished Norwegian model: abolishing a lifetime bans altogether and setting maximum sentence at something between year or two, with a possibility of the ban being extended if the offender doesn't get the message.

Wiki Reform

As former Attorney General for two spells, I realize all too well an importance of keeping the wiki up to date, not just for posterity's sake, but to make it easy for our citizens to keep familiar with the laws and other developments.

I have been the first candidate to speak on the issue and if elected, I'll promptly introduce a legislation to create a position of the National Archivist to update the wiki regularly.

Jesus Christ. What's wrong with you people?!

That poor fellow is about to lose his very soul and you're congratulating him on this truly depressing development? You should be weeping for him at the very least. Have you no bloody heart?

Seriously, you make me want to vomit.

I will give my opinion on some of the issues of the day.

I don't mind the creation of a archivist role to keep the wiki updated. I think it now falls to the assistant Attorney General to archive the laws. So if there is a new office created I would hope in the future we don't have an assistant GM if we have an archivist. If there is creation of a new office the Senate should have signs there will be some people applying for the job first.

Did you mean an assistant AG?

Mr. Kalwejt,  do you have a plan to tackle poverty in Atlasia?

If so, can you elaborate for us, or will the reduction of poverty be part of your platform that will be announced at a later date?

Thank you.

Once again, my apologies for delay (RL reasons).

Naturally, the reduction of poverty will be an important part of my platform but I can already elaborate on this key issue. Key, because welfare of the people should be the first task of any responsible government.

The welfare of the people cannot be truly improved until the stability is restored in Atlasia. Since 2014 Atlasia has been through a full-scale civil war, two rebelions, acts of terrorism and currently we're facing a serious crisis in the Pacific Region. Also, important external factors, such as wars in the Middle East and Puerto Santos coup, are threathing our economy. This all leads to having a damaged social and economic infrastructure, market uncertainty and loss of jobs, as evident from the statistics.

On the other hand the fact we've got a lot of work to do with rebuilding our country is an opportunity to get the people to work. The government must take a proactive role in creating and securing jobs for decent wages (I'm grateful my opponent, Mr. Truman, spoke about the wages recently). The austerity is not an answer, as it only destroy the economic and social infrastructure in long term. We've seen this madness in Europe and we must avoid that.

I also must disagree with Mr. Krol that the prime way to reduce poverty is to cut taxes for the rich, so they can "create new jobs". This dangerous myth was totally disproved in the 80s and 90s and I fear the real reason for the right to stubbornly stick with it is a desire to reward their wealthy friends and patrons.

We cannot reclaim our security and, hopefully, prosperity without reconstruction, and that requires money spent and serious involvement the government.

47  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: In hindsight on: July 01, 2015, 11:43:10 pm
I don't think she made a mistake in voting for the Iraq War given the information the Bush administration had provided to Congress using Colin Powell and other trusted officials as puppets. She did make a mistake not giving credence to dissenting opinions, not immediately distancing herself from the vote the moment it became clear there were no WMDs in Iraq, and in not making her decision-making process more transparent.

As much as Democrats want to eat their own for voting "yes" on Iraq. The ultimate responsibility lies with Dick Cheney and the Department of Defense for cherry-picking poor evidence to support their already-chosen line that Saddam was developing WMDs. To suggest anything else is to distract from the main instigators who still have yet to be held accountable.

No, every member of Congress that voted for the authoritation shares the responsibility. That goes for Hillary, as well as Biden or Kerry.

And I have a very hard time believing she was stupid enough to actually believe all that crap. Whatever one may say about Hillary, she's certainly not stupid. She's just a politician: it was purely opportunistic vote for something that was "popular" back then.

Look, I can understand argument that it was a mistake, but not an irredeemable mistake. After all, every single member of Congress in 1964 (except for Wayne Morse and Ernest Gruening) voted for the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, but most eventually corrected their ways. But it was still a big mistake and those who voted for the resolution shares some responsibility.

I agree that they share some responsibility, and I agree that Hillary is absolutely a politician who was considering how the vote would "look" when she made it. I disagree with the implication that she didn't actually believe there was evidence of WMDs and voted for the resolution anyway because of popular opinion.

I meant more "she believed Saddam was a threat and use of force was necessary" thing. And I still don't think she actually bought that.
