26  Questions and Answers / Presidential Election Process / Re: How is a Presidential Election conducted during an invasion? on: March 01, 2015, 12:21:32 pm
The 1864 election is a good precedent for this question.

Indeed. States that were outside of federal control simply did not participate.
27  Questions and Answers / Presidential Election Process / Re: Can someone from American Samoa run for President? on: March 01, 2015, 12:19:21 pm
McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone (which, however, isn't the same thing as "living in").

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer says in respect of Puerto Ricans:
"Lawyers always ask two questions: first, why?
Isn't Puerto Rico an important part of this country? Answer: yes.
Second question: why not? When I ask why not, I don't hear any answer."


Source: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/can-a-puerto-rican-be-president-justice-breyer-speculates/

But the question is: Is American Samoa also an important part of the USA?

I am perfectly aware of that. I was asking whether living in an unincorporated territory counts as residency requirement, since I've heard conflicting opinions.

For example, a native of Puerto Rico is, without a doubt, a natural born U.S. citizen, but does living outside an incorporated U.S. counts as residency under U.S. Constitution?

A fair number of American Samoans have US citizenship, so any children of theirs born in American Samoa or elsewhere would be natural born citizens.

Yeah, but someone born as "U.S. national" in Samoa, as opposed to citizen, obviously cannot run for President.

...Does Palin not know what a neo-Nazi is?

It was established way back in 2008 that she doesn't know much.

As GM I must warn that forming a group of armed citizens calling themselves "militia" outside of the regional control is much more likely to escalate the situation than to calm it down.

This is a development I can't ignore and I can't always make it pretty.

Possibly Wallace himself if alive in 2012.
That's actually true.

Could you imagine if Wallace or another segregationist had lived to 2008 and decided to vote for Obama to show he had changed?


John Patterson, who was an arch-segregationist Governor of Alabama from 1959 to 1963 and Wallace's direct predecessor supported Obama in 2008.

Florida is the mentally challenged offspring of a nasty tryst between the Confederacy and Cuba, who was raised in a foster home by a well-meaning but smothering Jewish Mother from the Tri-State Area and her real estate developer husband.

Just came here to post it.

Approve of all but ZuWo, who should by all rights be in jail for his partisan witch hunts and gross perversion of the People's legal system.

Odds ZuWo is going to fly the country minutes after his tenure expires? Wink

BREAKING: PMA Leader Identified

FBI has identified the current leader of the Patriotic Militia of Atlasia as 43-years old Wayne Derrick, a Montana native whose family was deeply involved in the radical groups. Derrick, a former Marine Private, discharged for conduct unbecoming after just 3 years of service, then became a full-time "patriot", succeeding imprisoned group founder's Rowan Cotton.

He's been last seen in public in 2009. The most recent photo is a mugshot taken when he was arrested for DIA in April 2008.

Analysis prepeared by the Foreign Affairs Section, Game Moderator Office:


IRAN
Despite mutual efforts to decrease tentions in recent time, oil prices drop poses a very serious problem for Tehran, already dealing with a severe revenue problems. This is a wild card, given uncertain nature of Iran's involvement in the Iraqi crisis. We are not sure whether establishment of the Islamic Republic in Shia-dominated south was a bold move to secure more fields or Tehran was forced to action by Iraqi rebels. On short term, Iran is certainly contemplating increasing oil production to make up for lost funds, thereby making the worldwide situation even worse.

SAUDI ARABIA
In contrast to Iran, the Saudis are keeping their heads cool, as they wish to avoid futher destabilization, as well as damaging improving ties with Atlasia. The Saudis are a key player here: back in 2003, during the Atlasian invasion on Iraq, they promised (and ensured) that oil prices won't suffer and, due to having the largest reserved in the world and influence within the Gulf, they can probably be able to repeat the feat.

KUWAIT
Unlike inside of their big neighbour, the mood in the Kuwait City is close to a panic, as they are directly bordering a new hostile self-proclaimed state, which brings painful memories of the 1990 invasion from the north. In order to secure their position, Kuwaitis may be tempted to go overboard with increasing their production, which can only make the overall situation worse, as it did in 1990, as exceeding the OPEC-imposed quotas was one of the main reasons behind Saddam's attack.

RUSSIA
Russia is another country hardly hit by the worldwide trend and may restore to similar methods to balance their shinking budget. Although Nyman and Moscow managed to avert a confrontation by Crimea Deal (avert, since it failed to resolve many long-term issues), Putin may see Atlasia as weakened by current internal crisis and therefore less considerate.

EUROPEAN UNION
The Europeans, dependant of foreign oil, are watching the Middle Eastern crisis with great concern and will, without a doubt, try to play a part in bringing quick resolution.

47  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Sorry, But Clinton’s Inevitability Is Not a Problem on: February 28, 2015, 08:27:38 am
But I'm convinced there is an issue out there, that doesn't dovetail with Hillary's strategy and will trip her up at the crucial moment, when she least needs or expects it. A debate, a revelation which is hidden away and which her opponent leaks through a third party to the media - without getting his own hands dirty...but still benefits from the negative fall-out. Watch this space.
Hopefully that will happen. What I know is that the Clintons will do ANYTHING to win this election. It won't be easy to beat them.


Well, I never agreed on the "inevitability" nonsense, but no sane person is going to claim she is not strongly favored now.

How With Iraqi Crisis Affect The Oil Prices?
An Unwelcome Task For Our New President

A drop of the oil prices worldwide is a phenomenon affected by several factors, such as inability of developed nations to agree on joint policy regarding limiting carbon emission at the recent summitt in Vienna and weak economic conditions, decreasing demand and producing large surpluses. Another key issue is the Middle Eastern situation, which, so far, had not affected the level of production in conflict-torn major producers such as Libya and Iraq. This, however can change quickly as the full-scale civil war between three hostile governments had just break out. This can go either way. While drop of production is almost certain (which, in turn, will undoubtedly cause prices to go up), another oil-rich countries of the region like Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Iran (facing a serious revenue problems) may significantly increase their production beyond OPEC-imposed quota, thereby making prices drop even futher, which, despite making an average Atlasian happy, will have a disastrous effect on our national revenue (as shown by the recent estimate) and the environment.

Which way the situation goes, we are certain that addressing the problem will become one of the urgent tasks for President-elect Bore and his administration.
