Wow.

Seatown, can you expand on what infrastructure improvements would get us to meet 21st century standards?

Sjoyce, could you offer any specific countries that you would like to see free trade agreements negotiated with?

Snowstalker, how do you plan to fund your "much larger stimulus" and do you have any specific proposals?

I say this as polls seem to show the Liberals winning a God-awful lot of At-Large seats.

The polls show Liberal candidates running well among top five preferences. This is, quite clearly, a meaningless statistic. Most voters' third and fourth preferences won't even make much a difference. It's also not very difficult to see why this is the case. The Liberal slate has a reputation for being serious and reasonable people, and ideologically we fit between the other two large parties, the Labor Party and the Whig Party. It is therefore safe to assume that the polls you are looking at do not necessarily reflect what the actual election results will be.

Option one. I'm not sure I've missed a vote, ever.

We could put in a specific reference to the universities affected by my previous bill, then, to clear things up.

Is the purpose to dissuade students from attending for-profit colleges by making it more expensive?

Sort of. We would rather see these institutions change their status than drive then out of existence.

It's a followup to my first post.

Sorry, I didn't know the story behind it, but I only meant in a joking manner. Since you don't like it, I will stop. And though I find it creepy, everyone makes mistakes especially when young.

You wrote an erotic novel about a dictator and a singer? For what reason? They weren't even alive together.

I wish you and Morgan the best of luck.

I suggest a constitutional amendment that keeps regional elections and federal elections on the same dates. This sort of turn out is unacceptable. When the Constitution was written, the federal government didn't have elections for President and Senate at the same time so it couldn't be fixed then.

Congratulations to the winners. Smiley

7566  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Is this racist? on: August 19, 2012, 08:13:32 pm
It's not racist, just rather condescending.

Especially the 'Dear Black Voters' and the 'REALLY?'.

I was thinking more that the assertion that black voters are stupid enough to think political race relations are inherited is the condescending part.

Have you noticed that no one ever talks about "White voters" as White voters? White voters are just voters but black voters have to be "Black Voters".

I'd like to see Udall winning the nomination and going against Jindal. A Democratic Mormon vs. Indian-American Republican.

That would be entertaining but its hard to root against the home team..

It totally depends on who needs it the most.  I haven't made up my mind yet.

7571  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: At Large Senate Candidate Q&A on: August 19, 2012, 06:13:43 pm
Here are some more questions:

1. What are your areas of expertise? Do you have knowledge on particular issues that would be unique within the Senate?

2. Would you aspire to serve on any of the established Committees? Do you think there are additional Committees worth creating? Do you feel committees have or can enhance the work of the Senate?

3. What measures would you support to stimulate the economy?

4.
If I may, I'd like to ask each candidate where they stand on crime and what they think should be done to prevent future shootings like the ones we've been seeing in Colorado, Wisconsin, and Texas.  Do you support any new gun control legislation or right-to-carry laws?  Should we put more police on the streets and impose harsher penalties for crimes?  Should law enforcement focus more on punishment or rehabilitation for criminals?  How can we assist local communities in combating crime while respecting civil liberties?

If you're in Oklahoma, I'd stay away from the tap water. Why? Let's just say I have a hunch that it isn't in your best interest.

 have fun. Smiley
7573  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Liberal National Committee Headquarters on: August 19, 2012, 04:35:27 pm
I've said I'd join the Liberals if I weren't in the Imperial Bloc/IDS. Just thought that should be brought to the attention of the party in your endorsement vote.

I'll probably give you my 6th at this point.
7574  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Liberal National Committee Headquarters on: August 19, 2012, 04:11:52 pm
It's a good sign if the Labor Party starts to emancipate itself from the Liberal Party and becomes more unique.
This isn't the way to go about it. This isn't "emancipating" and "becoming unique". This is fracturing the right, which of course you want, as it'll help the Whig candidates. Wink I really can't see how the two liberal parties splitting up is supposed to be beneficial to them.


It isn't supposed to benefit the Left. Anyone on the Left who thinks ZuWo has their best interests at heart and is speaking on their behalf might as well just join the Whigs and elect JCL to the Presidency or Senate or whatever.
7575  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Liberal National Committee Headquarters on: August 19, 2012, 03:54:50 pm
The last time Atlasia had two leftist parties and they didn't work together, it helped lead to Dallasfan and I snagging the Presidency.

Snowstalker has not been particularly shy about having this desire.

I never had the desire to appear divisive or bring about divisiveness, to be completely honest.

You don't appear divisive at all.

Quote
When Snowstalker and Seatown decide to cooperate and ZuWo decides to mind his own business, I may reconsider my vote, as well.  I think it's shameful that two great parties are unable to work together out of spite for minor differences on the issues, but I find it wrong for us to endorse candidates from other parties and get nothing in return.

Oh, I don't necessarily blame the Labor Party as there are a lot of great folks over there. I've decided to endorse Marokai for Senate because he is a serious and dedicated Atlasian, and this is despite our history. Snowstalker is prolonging the problems of the past with his personality-driven politics instead of actually working to help the Left. He tries to play this game of "Who's the Real Leftist?" while voting for Clarence and trying to make shady deals with the Whig Party. Seatown can't even get along with the Labor Party's only other Senator. This mess certainly isn't our doing and frankly I want to stay away from it and the contributors to it.

Quote
And quite frankly, if we have Senate candidates running that demonstrate no desire to work with people they don't agree with all the time, then I don't believe they're qualified to hold public office.  Debate gets heated enough in the Senate between the left and the right at times, and I fear that endorsing people who wish to break the bond between the leftist parties will only lead to further polarization.

That's why I can't support them. I intended to only make positive endorsements in this campaign but I can't sit back and let the game devolve to such a primitive state right when we are finally getting back on track and people are more interested in Atlasia than they have been in a while. If Snowstalker has his way, I imagine a new low for Atlasia.
