I fought hard to bring our troops home safely from three foreign wars; I am not intent on involving them in another one. It is the Syrian Civil War- leave it to the Syrians. Unless something unexpected occurs, we don't need to get involved. We should work as a mediator in the region, not as a meddler.

I support the current tax rates. I would consider lowering them if my economic advisors believe it will aid the economic recovery but I also want to continue on the path of deficit reduction.

I feel strongly about this. I have put forth a proposal on the Game Reform Panel that would have the executive act as an Ambassador to the rest of the forum- there has been no action on it. In fact I asked Phil to come back to the game myself. I believe it is a shame that some of the forum's best posters decline to participate in this game. I don't think the petty drama some Atlasians harp on about makes people want to involve themselves in this game, nor does a transparent moderate hero balancing act. I get the sense that these members are burnt out on the gimmicks and I don't blame them. We need an Atlasian Renaissance.

If his all time high was 50 in September, I doubt his approvals were sky high a month or two ago. Grin

I agree and also volunteer to moderate the debate.

I accept your offer.

It is strange that both Clarence's and Oakvale's running mates did not show up to vote in the regional elections. Shout out to Clarence and Tweed for doing their part.

I have been out of town since June 8.  These last few days I was visiting my grandfather in Daytona, who just had his appendix removed.  What have you been doing with your life, Napoleon?

I was out of town myself. No need to be rude.

We need an impartial moderator.

Most rich Wall Streeters and Ivy Leaguers are Democrats, so Romney is seen as a traitor to his class.

Speaking of Wall Streeters, I saw on one of the financial news channels recently a Wall Streeter who said the reason Obama in 2008 got so much Wall Street money was the hate and fear Wall Street had for Sarah Palin.  These people are not stupid, so they could not be distracted by the MSM themes about Palin's pregnant daughter or $150,000 wardrobe.  No, they read up on how Palin as Alaska Governor instituted strict government ethics laws and pounded Big Oil on taxes and the natural gas pipeline.

Most "Wall Streeters" are Republicans, through and through.

Election results from Manhattan would seem to belie that statement.

And my father, and all his friends, and so on.

If you elect all of your regional legislators at the same time, you could consider the Northeast's solution to the electoral competitiveness problem: Grant the title of Lieutenant Governor to the legislator receiving the most votes in the prior election.

This doesn't work well if you have a large set of responsibilities and powers in mind, but if you're most interested in having someone to take the Governor's place in case of absence or resignation, it's an effective way of dealing with the situation.
The Speaker assumes Governorship if the Governor resigns or disappears, so that's already taken care of.

Then you have no Speaker.

We could also build a new capital designed on the principles of New Urbanism.

Strongly support.

I think that turnout was roughly close to what it usually is for local elections here.

The special election to replace wormyguy had better turn out.

This is a better approach than banning automobiles. Wink
7692  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: ScottSurveys Updates Thread on: June 18, 2012, 06:49:27 pm
I wonder: Were those the same four people?

Anyway, it's a bit sad that the actual election only attracted two more voters than your poll did. Any idea why turnout was so low?

Jerseyrules did not campaign. There wasn't much reason for either side to get out the vote.

Congratulations! Dominating!
7694  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: Northeast Election June 2012 on: June 18, 2012, 03:18:50 pm
Alrighty, official results.

Nix defeats Jerseyrules 12-4.

Simfan is elected to the Assembly with 5 votes and will be Lieutenant Governor.
Alfred Jones is elected with 4 votes.
PyroFox is elected with 3 votes.
Winfield is elected with 3 votes.
Mondale is elected with 2 votes.

I, Governor Napoleon, certify these results officially.

Alright guys, seeing as I've lost every gubernatorial election for a while here, (Wink) I'm announcing my move to the Mideast.  As the northeast is quite hostile to my conservative brand of libertarianism, I feel that the Mideast would give me a better chance of having my values heard.  This is not the end, but a new beginning, my friends.

Don't do that, you didn't debate early wnough. Try to run for the Assembly. Smiley
7696  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: Northeast Election June 2012 on: June 18, 2012, 08:29:03 am
Haha wow you're right so Simfan, congrats, you're LG, sorry everyone!

The Governor will be waiting to reach a decision for this bill.

I agree with the Speaker about our fiscal situation. I would prefer not to divert these funds away. I understand Representatives concerns about the social cost of gambling though I have not formed a very strong opinion either way. If I sign this bill, it will be conditional on a future amendment creating a new tax to fund these programs instead of moving around funds already dedicated to other programs and needs.

So, let us have fun during this lame duck session. Convince me.
