1551  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: MA: Power To The People Amendment (Debating) on: April 24, 2013, 10:11:58 am
I support the amendment as well. It will obviously become harder for federal amendments to be passed in the Mideast because of the two-thirds clause but I can accept that.

I'll give this poll one more day since we are still at 15 respondents.

We are proud to reveal our official campaign banner. Thanks to homelycooking for creating it! Smiley




ZuWo-Cathcon means experience and leadership. We have both served in the Mideast Assembly for a combined 14 terms. Additionally, we bring one term as Mideast Governor and two presidential campaigns to the table. During our time in office we have put great emphasis on collaborating with people of all parties to move our region forward. We fully intend to work in the same fashion if we are elected Governor and Lt. Governor.
There are several challenges on the horizon for our region; the state of our infrastructure, the constitutional obligation to pass a balanced budget, the Wiki, just to name a couple of important examples, and we want to tackle each one of them. We may not be perfect, but we promise to be active leaders.

It is for these reasons that we think we are ready and able to govern the largest region in Atlasia. The Mideast is in good shape, and we will do everything we can to continue the success story of our region.

Endorsed for first preference

Thank you, Senator. It's an honor. Smiley

You will get a very high preference from me, that's for sure! "Workhorses" like you, to use the term of the current President, are essential for the game

From a Federalist point of view Jbrase and shua are very appealing candidates.
1557  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: A-Bob Research Center: Mideast Political Demographics&Gubernatorial Survey 3 on: April 23, 2013, 06:15:12 am
I've got 15 respondents so far. A couple more participants would be appreciated.

I was unaware there were people above elementary school age who don't touch type.

I'm one of those, too. I simply never needed any touch typing skills for the texts I wrote.

Throughout this entire debate I have developed a real desire to learn "Inksian". I think it would be appropriate if we could at least get a text sample of this new tongue.

Your candidacy has made the race for Governor more interesting but I understand your decision. I wish you the best of luck in your campaign for Assembly.
1561  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: ZuWo and Cathcon: Experience and Leadership on: April 23, 2013, 02:42:22 am
Thank you, Lumine. I'm glad you appreciate our campaign. Wink

Great idea to run a poll now that the field seems stable, do you have any early predictions on what the results could be?

We need some more Federalists taking the poll (and I'm seriously questioning the results as of now); what I'll say already is this: budget issues, game reform, and personal affinity seem to be the big three factors

I'm struggling with the same problem - way too few Federalists in my polls to get a meaningful result. But I still consider this polling format superior to the usual Atlasian polls. You can ask many specific questions that the poll respondents can answer in a short amount of time.
1563  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: MA: Tmthforu94-Gass3268 High Speed Rail Act of 2013 (Debating) on: April 22, 2013, 03:52:38 pm
Hey, y'all,

Since there's already a Nyman-Baltimore-Philly-NYC-Boston high-speed rail line, I was wondering if, as part of this legislation, you would consider construction of a high-speed rail from Nyman across the Potomac to Richmond and the border, where it could connect to our Charlotte-Greensboro-Raleigh/Durham line that we're planning to extend down to Greenville and Atlanta? It would integrate our transportation system much better and make travelling easier.

That actually makes sense since traffic doesn't stop at regional borders.
1564  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: ZuWo and Cathcon: Experience and Leadership on: April 22, 2013, 03:37:42 pm
Wow, that's really awesome! Thank you very much. Smiley
1565  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: ZuWo and Cathcon: Experience and Leadership on: April 22, 2013, 03:28:05 pm
The ZuWo/Cathcon ticket congratulates the winners of the Senate election.

In the next days we are going to reveal our campaign banner. Our campaign theme remains "Experience and Leadership".
1566  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Inside Nyman: Hagrid, MaxQue, Napoleon, Mr. X, Kalwejt projected to win on: April 22, 2013, 01:29:41 pm
Thanks for the nice visualization of the balance of power in the Senate, Nix.
Now let's state it clearly once and for all (before some on the left start lamenting about the "right-wing" or "conservative" Senate again): There are 8 Senators that are undeniably left of center, while there are only 2 conservatives. Wink
1567  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: MA: Mideast Speed Limits Act (Debating) on: April 22, 2013, 01:22:44 pm
I can say that speed cameras are widely used in my home country as well as many other European countries and they don't pose any major problems. Sure, they are annoying if you get caught speeding, but you've got no one else to blame than yourself if that happens. Importantly, numerous studies have shown that speed cameras have a positive impact on road safety:

Additionally, let's not forget that speed cameras also generate revenue.

Teaching is exhausting, I can say this from experience. However, how you feel after six hours of teaching depends on your approach to the job (also, of course, on the classes you teach). If working in general and teaching in particular is something unpleasant to you and you only regard it as a means to earn money, then yes, your reaction is probably quite normal.
1569  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: A-Bob Research Center: Mideast Political Demographics&Gubernatorial Survey 3 on: April 22, 2013, 10:03:16 am
The first numbers (13 respondents) show some interesting trends. First of all, the race for Governor remains close between Clinton1996 and ZuWo, with Gass in third place. Secondly, no clear pattern emerges when it comes to the questions of what the ideal balance of power for the Mideast is and whether the Mideast Assembly should be controlled by the right, the left or by no political group at all. Interestingly, 7 of the 13 respondents say their political views are "far left" or "center left", 5 say that they are "far right" or "center right", and only one person considers himself/herself a "centrist". This suggests that these preliminary figures might skew to the left so more responses are wanted!

It would be pretty hard to have an invalid vote due to inactivity or posting requirements, since they practically barely exist these days.

Actually, McGovern's vote seems to be invalid because of too few posts.
1571  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Atlasian Sentinel: Sjoyce projected winner in IDS! on: April 22, 2013, 03:36:22 am
What activity rules do Dkolroga break?

He didn't break activity rules, he wasn't registered in time. You have to be registered seven days before the election in order to vote. I've introduced a constitutional amendment to eliminate that waiting period.

No votes were invalid due to activity.

As far as I see, TDAS04's vote should also be invalid. He registered for the game on April 12 but the earliest possible commencement of the election was at midnight on Thursday the 18th.

"Regular elections to the Senate shall begin between midnight Eastern Standard Time on the Thursday preceding the penultimate Friday of the month and 0001 Eastern Standard Time on the penultimate Friday itself"

A lot obviously depends on how homely is going to deal with those ballots that contain comments such as "all these choices suck/are great" etc. He clearly stated that he would take a very liberal interpretation of the rule that one mustn't campaign in the voting booth so let's wait and see what the official result will show. Wink

If that change the results, I fully expect a lawsuit by the loser.

And that could be a good thing if it helped us clarify what "campaigning in the voting booth" really means.

Congratulations! I think both you and Zanas put up a great and mostly issue-based campaign so this was a very interesting election to follow.
1575  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Atlasian Sentinel: Sjoyce projected winner in IDS! on: April 22, 2013, 02:18:23 am
Well, those who lost today can take comfort in the fact that there is a high chance of another special election quite soon. I'm pretty sure there will be at least one Senator who lacks the motivation or time to do his job or simply disappears from the forum after a couple of weeks. That's what usually happens, after all.
