For the record, I was one of only five people to approve of Seatown in the last poll. 5/18 total (22%).

This power grab nonsense is ridiculous. I have been happy to help Labor Party members get into office, as anyone in the Northeast can attest. As for your other drivel, look at how many Labor voters vote straight Labor for their top three in this election and compare that to the Liberals. Even our candidates didn't vote straight party line! In the Northeast, Liberals supportedin Labor candidates over some of our own party and we lost a seat.We are more than happy to work with other parties. And I think most of Labor is too, excepting a small and divisive minority.

I will give you credit for having the guts to go before the Whigs and ask them to preference you, while you vote against Whig candidates that don't even have opponents.

Our party is nothing like the Liberal Democrats. Almost all recent and even distant left wing progress stems from Liberals in this game, except Antonio and Marokai. You should look into our actual policies before criticizing us.

Seatown and Snowstalker have ran a very negative campaign. As President I have worked to help pass many of Seatown's efforts so for me its disappointing.

The newer Labor members don't remember what it was like the last time the Left was divided. I think they should ask around.

I don't know who to vote for as no one has sent me any money all weekend. Has AndrewCT lost? If so, should I just not vote for him despite our romance in the past? And if Marokai is safe, would it be wrong to vote vote for him considering I think he needs to be in the senate? And what of hagrid and Clarence? And BK, even though he trashed me during his campaign? Why are there so many running? Why hasn't anyone written me in? Am I that forgotten?

Andrew wrote you in. Sad

You forgot the part where he attacked the only other Senator from the Labor Party as being a right winger. And my personal favorite, the bloodthirsty hounds comment, which he could have got away with but apparently didn't realize that while you can get away with being an ass to some people some times, you can't get away with being an ass to everyone all the time.
7557  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Northeast Assembly Thread on: August 25, 2012, 12:08:27 pm
I am going to trash another amendment to the Constitution, because that is my job.

 
I'm withdrawing my previous in favor of this amendment.

Quote
Amendment to the NE Constitution - Lieutenant Governor Election Clarification

1. Article 2, provision 12 of the Northeast Constitution is hereby amended to read:

12. The Lieutenant Governor of the Northeast Region shall be the Representative receiving the most first preferences in the most recent general election. He or she officially opens and closes the legislative sessions of the Northeast Legislative Assembly and shall ascend to the Governorship if that office becomes vacant for any reason. If the Governor is temporarily absent (no more than ten days), the Lieutenant Governor may exercise the powers of Governor, excluding the ability to sign or veto legislation.

2. This amendment shall come into effect during the next general election.

This amendment becomes difficult if the assembly changes the voting method to a non-preferential system, which doesn't tenure a constitutional amendment currently.

I can absolutely understand someone voting Seatown over BK, considering BK's very fly-boy, love-em-and-leave-em approach to Atlasia he's had in the past.

Wormyguy has missed a majority of votes during his term and recently was expelled but still scored higher approvals than Seatown.

I was thinking a large research university. 20,000 undergraduate students and about 8,000 graduate students.
I'd estimate a cost of about $1 billion in construction cost, and $700 million in operating expenses and salaries.

And how much do we currently spend on defense?  Just want some perspective here. 

Nearly $400 billion, if you include veterans' spending (which I think we should, it's a direct result of a bloated military budget), we are talking $600 billion or so. Our surplus is about $85 billion.

Thank you

The election has started so I willno longer be asking questions, though what other people choose to do is up to them. Smiley

Atlasia has already created an expanisve high speed rail network.

Liberal Senate candidate Franzl initially got it started, and I, as a Senator, greatly expanded upon it.

I hate to be the party pooped for a second time in this thread, but Goldwater, I think your amendment causes more problems than it solves. The candidate with the most first preferences is always supposed to win. Therefore, a tie would mean each candidate has the same number of first preferences so the tie would be solved by going to second preferences. Here, there never really was a tie to begin with.

Really? The Constitution just says votes, which I assumed to mean votes in the final round, and in that case me & Alfred were tied.

In the final round there would be many tied candidates because once you reach the quota the surplus votes are transfered. It is near impossible for the most votes clause to refer to the final round of a PR-ST election.

OK, Nix says that the Constitution says that the count is determined in the final round (or at least, not necessarily the first one), and that he's prepared to defend his decision if you intend to challenge him, Mr. President.

Im not too familiar with the Constitution but I don't see that provision in there.

Someone should challenge this, not as a slight against him or you, but because if the Governor is going to open up a new interpretation, its validity should be tested. Now, I cannot do it because I am a Northeasterner.

Regardless of how one feels about the Constitution, I think the tie breaker was odd to say the least. Why wouldn't the candidate with more first preferences win? When Nathan and Cincinnatus tied with 48 votes, Nathan won because he had more first preferences. I do think you make a great Lieutenant Governor and hopefully Speaker though.

He will, nay, he must return, for all of us.

I hope his next account is Joe Democrat Forever. Maybe we could also have Joe Democrat Rises.

Joe Democrat Forever should come next. Then, I hope he skips Joe Democrat & Robin and directly goes to Joe Democrat Begins.

Joe Democrat Begins would be interesting. We would finally learn how this bitter rivalry came to be.

To have a larger legislative body would most certainly kill the smaller populated regions of the Pacific and Midwest, not to mention cripple the other regions. We need people populating our regional governments and this would suck them away. Unless the number be made something smaller like 15 I will be opposed.

     I agree with this. I must oppose any expansion of federal government on this scale, since it would detract from regional activity.
I didn't know that there WAS regional activity going on at this present time.

     We have plenty down in the South. One of the wonders of an elected Legislature. Grin

Indeed. The Mideast, the IDS and the Northeast have quite a high level of activity at the moment.

Hawkeye's own region is in the process of creating a new constitution.

Happy in my liberal Toryism.

That's awfully moderate for a Conservative.  Tongue

Not really. Not for someone who is 28 and isn't pretending to be 'extra conservative' to be contrary.

That seems to be what happened but Earl wrote himself in and therefore it would count as a vote for himself. With three votes, Goldwater is also elected before Earl's elimination. Sad

Although, I don't know how the situation works out now that the count is certified and everyone is sworn in.
