Damn it, I deleted that post..oh well, my point was that this committee should give its opinion and then if Senators want to raise additional concerns they can propose amendments. Mr. Moderate suggested an amendment to me for example, to include gender identity.

They can do that too, but since Clarence already raised some concerns, they can be worked out just as well in the committee.

That's fine, whether they are discussed here or on the floor, but my personal opinion is that the concerns he posted are either illegitimate or rooted in ideological opposition to the concept, and cannot be reconciled with the aims of the amendment. I would rather discuss such concerns at greater length with all Senators present, if I am called upon.

Senator,

Do you believe that this new openness will be able to in any way calm fears amongst our allies, especially Israel, that Iran will not use its nuclear capabilities to harm the State of Israel?

Is this meant for a Senator? Huh

I would be happy that Obama lost.

And that someone who's actually a socialist replaced the guy people called a socialist?

A socialist is preferable to a corporatist.

If VP Kal runs, I would support him but Senator Scott and Governor Nix are great choices too. Cheesy

Does this mean you're not running for re-election?! :O

I've received encouraging support but, who knows. I am focused on getting done what I set out to do in this term, before I reach any decision. The PPT still hasn't put any of my legislation in the executive slot since the budget passed despite my requests, so things are going much slower than I would like. I don't know if he has seen my messages or not though, so I sent another just now.

I was referring to:

That is a disgusting post that deserved to be infracted. Taking posting advice from Snowstalker is not a good idea.

I also made a similar comment which was similarly censored.

Considering your past statements on racial matters, I do not see what is so wrong with what I said in the context given. Posts like the ones we are discussing are objectively bad and are bound to offend. There is no humor in the Holocaust, or racial epithets, to most people on this forum.
Show us evidence that Snowstalker is a racist. I don't think there's any evidence that he is in any way racist. On the other hand, there is a whole lot of evidence that you're a dick.

Mmm, well I happen to disagree. Snowstalker's insensitive comments about Italians and Jews are well documented and I shall not be bothered to inform someone who wouldn't change their mind anyway. Smiley

Basen on most polling, about 4-5%, though people shift in and out of undecided mode (for instance, you just went from Romney to undecided)

I tend to think that it could be even lower, maybe 3%. Many "undecideds" are really decided, and they just convince themselves that they have an open mind but generally go one way or another in most elections. It's crazy to think that all of this election hoop-la is vying for maybe 4-5 million people at this point - and that's nationally. When we are talking about swing states, it's probably a low six-digit number.

Campaigns are about turnout. That is why both tickets are catering to the base instead of moving to the center. And while Obama isn't much of a progressive, his rhetoric excites labor and minorities more than the moderate suburban liberal vote or anti-war liberals.

State of the Union Speech

Senators and fellow Atlasians

We are gathered here tonight because it is our duty to address the many problems facing our nation. We have a responsibility to our country to come together and create solutions. Atlasia is working, we are on the right track, but anything less than 100% of our effort is unacceptable while I am President of the Republic of Atlasia.

We have shared great success these past weeks and months. Together, we saved our compassionate health care programs from collapsing and we balanced the budget without burdening working Atlasians with higher taxes. We have welcomed home our troops from the Middle East and have made investments in their future to reward their heroic sacrifices.

Atlasia must be a force for peace and prosperity, at home and abroad. We cannot afford any more economic turbulence, where hard-working Atlasians slip through the cracks and can no longer pursue happiness for their families.  We cannot afford any more unnecessary bloodshed, where honorable Atlasians are separated from their families and friends not knowing if they will see them again. Liberal, Labor, or Whig, I hope we can agree that the future is brighter.

Vice President Kalwejt has helped establish communications between Atlasia and Iran. Iran, having recently acquired nuclear weapons, is an emerging power in a fragile region. It is up to us to preserve peace, not only for our own values but for the sake of millions of Iranians who now have a small window letting in the light of freedom. If we can begin building a relationship, we can ensure that Iran acts as a responsible power and weaken terrorist networks around the world.

I support the creation of a federally-funded, nationwide university system, to offer more students access to a college education. I support removing the tax on tuition, because college students and their families have it hard enough as it is. I support worker training and jobs programs to help students build careers and restore employment for those less fortunate. I support the right of every Atlasian to have access to quality health care. I support prohibiting employers from discriminating in hiring because an applicant has been out of work. I support a lower tax burden on middle class Atlasians. I support efforts to conserve energy, develop clean energy, and make energy more cost effective. I support equal rights for all Atlasians regardless of their sexual orientation or gender. Now is not the time for satisfaction.

It is time that we move. Our government must be active in promoting and protecting the rights of our people. We must move forward with this common purpose. We must be relentless in our efforts. And we will make bring about the greatness this nation deserves.

Thank you all and Dave Bless Atlasia

Wormy should have 12 and I should have 6, then.

Wormy should have 0 since he isn't running in the election.

Neither is TJ.

You're right.

7696  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE STANDING COMMITTEE: The Judiciary (Court Reform) on: August 13, 2012, 03:19:49 pm
With two failed judicial proposals already, it is probably a better idea to focus on other priorities. The Constitution is difficult to amend and the Court has no significant problems requiring immediate attention. While a five member Court could be interesting and allow more access to the judicial branch for players, I believe our efforts could be best directed at policy measures at this moment in history.

7699  Forum Community / Forum Community Election Match-ups / Re: Make a map of the previous six posters as three tickets on: August 12, 2012, 11:35:32 pm
Governor Nix/Senator Goldwater- 341 EV and 44.3% PV
Senator Miles/Senator Realisticidealist- 21 EV and 18.9% PV
Secretary of State Cathcon/Representative Supersonic- 176 EV and 35.6% PV




Governor Nix barely wins the primary over Senator Miles. The primary takes a libertarian vs. populist turn, and Nix doubles down by selecting Goldwater as a runningmate. Senator Miles, angry with the Democratic ticket, walks out of the convention with supporters behind him and announces an Independent bid with a socially conservative and economically left wing platform that attempts to attract Southern whites and working class voters. The Republicans counter by nominating the likable Secretary of State Cathcon, but with his success in foreign policy, he loses some of the social conservative vote to Miles.

Nix successfully portrays himself as a moderate Democrat and attacks the Republican ticket as too right wing. The attacks are a success, with Senator Miles support mostly concentrated in formerly Democratic states that are typically Republican now.

Is the preceding poster a self parody

This.

I don't understand why a moderator of all people would make such a thread. This is literally nothing positive that can come from that thread.

Implying the mods are morally upstanding.

What the heck is a "self-parody" anyways?

Implying that they should be, actually.
