FMC, I will be opening voting at midnight tonight.  Voting will be open for 72 hours, the entirety of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

No, you can't vote in your own voting thread.
4277  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:ATTENTION ALL FORUM MEMBERS on: August 19, 2004, 01:51:59 am
That is correct.
4278  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:ATTENTION ALL FORUM MEMBERS on: August 19, 2004, 01:35:49 am
Gabu, its because of this clause in the Constitution:

After an appointed Senator, or a Senator who was elected in a special election, takes office, he or she must face the nearest election whether it be the scheduled Senatorial election or a retention election.

As far as giving up, he probably has abandoned any hope of actually winning.  But he has not formally withdrawn, and as it stands now his name will be on the ballot.  MAS117 won't be, though.
4280  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:ATTENTION ALL FORUM MEMBERS on: August 18, 2004, 10:53:28 pm
Akno vs. Justice MAS vs. RReagan4EVER... the 2A Senate race will be a very interesting race to watch.

Don't forget NixonNow, although no one will probably vote for him.

I don't expect anyones voting decision will be influenced by this information, and I'm sure Kerry won't campaign on it.  It is interesting, though.

Whatever.  It doesnt matter whether he initiated it or not -and I'm not agreeing that he didn't, just saying its irrelevant.  You really cant expect to get the votes of gay America if you support this.  As for my boyfriend, my feeling is he can't help it, his parents didnt bring him up right.  Smiley
4284  Election Archive / 2004 U.S. Presidential Election / Re:Public Poll on Same-Sex Marriage on: August 18, 2004, 08:48:39 pm
Oh, give me a break, he did too put it forward, else he wouldnt have made it an issue in the State of the Union address.
4285  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re:Rumsfled and Bush absent on 9/11. on: August 18, 2004, 08:36:48 pm
I have to say that the administration responded appropriately on Sept. 11, and any attempts by members of my party to find fault is just scraping the bottom of the barrel.  We were all behind Bush on Sept 11, even Al Gore was for gods sake.  There are many, many, many issues I can criticize the President for, but what he did in the aftermath of Sept. 11 is not one of them.
4286  Election Archive / 2004 U.S. Presidential Election / Re:Public Poll on Same-Sex Marriage on: August 18, 2004, 08:15:31 pm
Given Bush's putting forward the Marriage Amendment, can you really be surprised at that?
4287  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:United Atlas Centrist Party Endorsements on: August 18, 2004, 08:07:08 pm
And will you be writing this platform, Nym?  You may set a record for being the authour of the most Atlas Forum party platforms! Cheesy
4288  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:District 1B Senate debate on: August 18, 2004, 07:17:30 pm
If you have a debate thread open for your particular Senate race, you may answer this question there.  As a person who has been out of work for some time, I am very interested in all Senate candidates response to this question.

What economic policies should the federal government pursue to stimulate job creation?
4289  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Some Thoughts on: August 18, 2004, 07:08:09 pm
Kids, this is all a game.

Its not whether you win or lose, its how you play the game.

Texasgurl, other members of the AFIP stepping out to support Demrepdan is part of the game.  There is nothing wrong with that.  I went through the same thing when I ran for this seat against Demrepdan, after you resigned.  I ended up pulling out of the race because I knew there was no chance I could win.

I don't know which one of you will win this particular contest; I think its very close, and could go either way.  Hang in there.  The best defense is a good offense- be positive.  Tell the voters why they should vote for you.
4290  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Reaganfan- Hurricane Charley... on: August 18, 2004, 06:50:59 pm
No Boss, Texas has been moved to the Southeast region, and Reaganfan is now running against Htmldon.

Oh.



Damn I'll have to support htmldon, even though he is one of my 5 least favorite members.

As a member of the Senate, Boss, you really should know these things...even if you are retiring.
4291  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:United Atlas Centrist Party Endorsements on: August 18, 2004, 06:42:39 pm
Well, I think if you're going to continue to do what you do when people register to vote with the Democratic Party, you can probably expect Umengus, and me, to issue our standard responses.

You'll notice that the chairperson of the United Left party doesn't do this.
4292  Election Archive / 2004 U.S. Presidential Election / Re:Public Poll on Same-Sex Marriage on: August 18, 2004, 03:17:04 pm
Don't mean to be rude, but where can you find a homosexual Republican these days? The 2 words just don't seem to mix.

They are rare, but they do exist.
4293  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Democratic Party Endorsements for Senate on: August 18, 2004, 02:03:00 pm
I've talked this over with my party, and we have decided to let our endorsement of PlatypeanArchcow stand.  We hope the candidate shows up in here sometime soon.

If he wins, and does not ever return, I think the court will rule that the second-place winner gets the Senate seat.
4294  Election Archive / 2004 U.S. Presidential Election / Re:Colorado: another nail in the elctral collg coffin on: August 18, 2004, 01:28:55 pm
The Maine-Nebraska method sounds sensible, but historically there have been a couple of elections recently that would have been won by the loser, if this method were being used in every state.  I am not 100% sure, but I think this was the case in 1960 and 1976.  Because of that, I favor keeping things as they are.  In fact I think Maine and Nebraska should come back to winner-take-all, the rules should be the same in every state.
4295  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:United Atlas Centrist Party Endorsements on: August 18, 2004, 01:10:27 pm
Okay, I'll ask Umengus to lay off with the prefer-the-original-to-the-copy line, if you'll stop with the do-you-know-about-all-our-other-parties line every time someone registers as Democrat.
4296  Election Archive / 2004 U.S. Presidential Election / Re:WHY Bush will Lose on: August 18, 2004, 12:49:04 pm
I strongly disagree.  Dean would have been the worst choice, I thank my lucky stars we aren't stuck with him.  He would have been another McGovern.  Edwards is good, but lacks experience, and the Republicans are using that against him even running for VP.  No, Kerry is the right choice.  And he is likely to win.
4297  Election Archive / 2004 U.S. Presidential Election / Re:Colorado: another nail in the elctral collg coffin on: August 18, 2004, 12:45:40 pm
Anyways, if I lived in Colorado I would vote yes, for the purely political reason that it would favor the Democrat.  If this were proposed in my state, I would vote no, also for purely political reasons.
4298  Election Archive / 2004 U.S. Presidential Election / Re:Colorado: another nail in the elctral collg coffin on: August 18, 2004, 12:37:52 pm
I tried to calculate this myself, for California and Colorado.  I have some problems with the math.

California- 54 electoral votes:
Gore- 53.45% * 54 = 28.86, round to 29
Bush- 41.65% * 54 = 22.49, round to 22
Nader- 3.82% * 54 = 2.06, round to 2
29 + 22 + 2 = 53.  Where does the missing EV go?

Same thing in Colorado- 8 electoral votes:
Bush- 50.75% * 8 = 4.06, round to 4
Gore- 42.39% * 8 =3.39, round to 3
Nader- 5.25% * 8 = 0.42, round to 0

I guess NickG gave 23 to Bush in California, and as he said 1 to Nader in Colorado.

Edit: I should have read through this whole thread before posting this....
4299  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:WHICH CITY (PACIFIC CITIZENS ONLY!) on: August 18, 2004, 11:59:28 am
For instance, I have a preposition on the Midwest ballot placing the capitol of the Midwest at Belle Fourche, SD, population 4,565 Grin

Do you have any pictures of the town you are proposing?  I'd like to see what I'm going to be voting for.

Senator StevenNick, please update the first post with the new improved Regions map.  Thanks Senator!!!
