I still oppose and will always oppose this. The last thing we need is to turn this forum even more into a popularity contest where people say stuff to be one of the cool kids rather than to state their genuine opinion.

I absolutely agree.

I was smoking a joint with Politicus, Crabcake, TNF and Cathcon.

I'm so f**king offended for being excluded from this imaginary joing smoking.

Great example of the worst of Atlas.

I'm not so sure

Once upon a time, I had this strange vision of "The Green Mile" with certain Forum members starring:

opebo as John Coffey
BRTD as Paul Edgecombe
HockeyDude as Brutus "Brutal" Howell
Eraserhead as another good guy
Torie as Percy Wetmore
Libertas as Eduard "Del" Delaxroix
Random Libertas' sock as Mr. Jingles
Feeblepizza as "Wild Bill" Wharton
Dave Leip as Warden Hal Moores
Nym as the executioner

Typically 'left-wingers' don't destroy left-wing organizations, ban trade unions, and invade a country that was more or less the vanguard of world-wide left-wing politics.

I don't think Trotsky would agree about the stalinist state being a "vanguard of world-wide left-wing politics." Tongue

Lee Hsien Loong?

Simi's fetish for the "Disneyland with the Death Penalty" is troubling to say the least.

Obviously the question is completely meaningless though as all politicians are products of their surroundings. All the politicians mentioned are impossible to imagine in a U.S. context in anything remotely like their current incantations.

Preciesly. It would be just like to expect Abe Lincoln to function as the British Prime Minister if he suddenly became one instead of President.

Oh, regarding the 2016 Presidential election board, I think it is much improved myself, and/or got an unfair rap before (I really didn't participate on it much until fairly recently). You should check it out BRTD. You need to keep up. Smiley

I just love how BRTD is criticizing some posters for having a negative opinion on ADD while not being present there, while he himself is hopelessly out of touch with many Atlas boards.

I've always liked Maxwell, but I strongly oppose his present positions. I think appointing him was a very unfortunate thing for someone, whose task is now to rebuild Midwest.
35  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Office of At-Large Senator and SoEA Kalwejt (Statement) on: July 30, 2015, 10:47:27 am
I've been thinking about such bill for a some time:

Quote
Cabinet Reorganization Act of 2015

1. The Departments of Federal Elections and Census Bureau shall be merged into the Department of Forum Affairs
2. The Departments of Justice and Internal Affairs shall be merged into the Department of the Home Affairs

Basically, as I said above, the SoFA would be handling the Census most of the time, only to run elections from time to time. It's totally workable.

As of the Home Secretary, internal affairs, as defined under the DoHA, would be his daily task, since prosecutions are a periodical task, which the Home Secretary could handle himself or designate a special prosecutor. 

What do you think?
36  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Homelycooking for RG! on: July 30, 2015, 10:41:51 am
We ought to reestablish the office of Secretary of Forum Affairs by merging SoFE and RG functions. Then maintaining census office would be SoFA's regular work with an occasional need to run an election.
I completely support this idea, Kal.

I've been thinking of proposing a bill to reduce the cabinet size by merging some departments for some time. I'm glad Simfan reminded me of this.

Secretary Kalwejt is in New York City, Northeast, visiting the United Nations headquarters to meet with various representatives. He also delivered a brief address before the General Assembly.

No one could possibly deny Atlasia had gone through a very difficult period of time. However, it is imperative that no wrong conclusions be drawn. Our political, economic and military infrastructure remains intact and Nyman is as committed to the global affairs and our international commitment as before. We must put a serious focus on civil, deliberate reforms, but that doesn't distract us from other important issues. We are grateful to our allies for the support shown us in these difficult days and we are always ready to to repay our debt.

40  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2000 U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Would Gore have done better if his running mate was a woman? on: July 30, 2015, 09:16:18 am
No.  The only thing that would have helped is if Gore wasn't Gore.

This is correct.

Gore could've won the election easily, regardless of a running-mate (Shaheen, Lieberman, Kerry, Graham, Edwards... take your damn pick) if he had utterly diffrent campaign. Even with his piss-poor campaign, he still came within the inches, so imagine his results without said bagage.

I'm afraid this bill does not adress the issue of public safety. It's basically a carte blanche for all types of fireworks.

...I wasn't even looking for that. Just noticed it on the main page.

So, there are stupid posts around. That obviously makes the entire Atlas Forum horrible ::}

Yes, the weird meme (that is America's fault) that right-wing = limited government, left-wing = big government is a direct contribution to this POV.

Hitler was a right-winger in a right-wing party. Perhaps you can make an interesting debate about whether the Strassers etc. can genuinely be called left-wingers, but Hitler was an ardent conservative, who allied with the big landowners and industrialists, who crushed the independent trade unions and their affiliated groups, who opposed "decadent culture", who got the majority of the vote from the Middle-class and who was initially reliant on monarchists and right-wing nationalists to enter government.

If the Strassers were indeed left-wingers, then all "left-wing" elements were definitively purged in 1934, which futher disproved the "Hitler was left-wing" silliness.
49  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Improve Our Wiki Act of 2015 (Debating) on: July 29, 2015, 10:22:52 pm
Here is an idea. Instead of making it a permenent position, whereby there is a vacancy draining a low pool of potential occupants, why not make it an "as needed position". Leave the responsibility primarily with the DOJ, but if it were to become backed up or hopelessly behind the President can have someone act as National Archivist to help catch up.


That's the very good idea Yankee. Would you propose an amendment?
50  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Continuity of Government Act on: July 29, 2015, 10:19:02 pm
Unless Kal has anymore concerns, I would be fine with moving to a final vote.

I said everything I wanted.,
