It's interesting that this thread question has actually bothered me for a few days.  I keep trying to think about how to answer it and I honestly don't know how.  I support markets and free trade, though I think the tax base should be broad enough to enable federal and local governments to make continuous and intelligent investments in education, health care, infrastructure, public safety and the interior, so as to provide for opportunity and a safety net that benefits everyone, and not just some at the expense of others.  I believe in a strong and healthy legal system and that the military should be well-provisioned Thread respected by the citizens, but should be called upon quite sparingly.  I believe that individuals should be permitted optimal freedom in pursuing their own happiness, but also that public discourse should pay much attention to the importance of an inclusive national community.  

Those are broad principles I hold, and I'm not that interested in finding a label that they add up to.  It's all too easy to make a list of these principles; it's the detailed work of solving actual specific problems where life gets both more interesting and more tricky.  It's like what Frank McCourt wrote about his first day of grade-school teaching when a kid threw his lunchbox sandwich at another kid and it landed at his own feet at the front of the room--that after four years of English and pedagogy classes at NYU, he suddenly realized that no one had taught him how to handle a flying sandwich situation.          

You're a Liberal based off this.

Weed and chess don't mix who would've thought

We should have a second one after anvi wins with 16 people.

The next election starts on August 17th, so you'll be out for the remainder of the term. I suggest that you resign from the Speakership several days before your departure and call a vote on your successor.
He should resign his seat too (though it wouldn't be a problem to run in that election).

Romney will not win lol. i know some old fogies will voted GOP all their life and they are gonna vote Democrat for the first time because they said of all the GOP candidnates they seen in their 80+ years hes the worst one with Bob Dole being 2nd.i am pretty sure others think that as well.  so Obama/Obama.

No we aren't--it would seem we are content to wait for war to come to us.

Its your party that is trying to start a nuclear war,  not my administration. Iran has done absolutely nothing that would require our military intervention and I am hopeful we can keep it that way. My job is to keep Atlasia safe and I intend to do whatever is necessary. Starting a war with Iran out of paranoia and fear does not contribute to that goal.
7716  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: ScottSurveys/Porcupine Poll: Military Force Against Iran on: July 24, 2012, 12:14:07 am
I am extremely torn, as I think should be natural. I've not yet made up my mind.

Still, I do find it troubling that our President can so nonchalantly say "of course not," signalling to the world that aggressive countries will go unchecked by Atlasia. Are we not supposed to be a beacon of hope? We should not shrink from our enemies.

It is irresponsible to label countries as our enemy. We are not in a state of war.

I had been warning Democrats since the day Obama was elected how seriously they needed to take the 2010 midterms due to the fact that it was a redistricting election.  They stupidly ignored me and now they will likely be locked out of the House and most state legislatures for a generation. 

Haha. Oh man you're so important.

Its not bad by any measure but I think it ranks as the weakest of the series.

Which the federal government has no authority to do. The regions, not the federal government, are supreme on this matter as it is not specifically mentioned in article 1 section 8.

Roll Eyes

Read article 1 section 8 of the United States Constuition. It has NO specific statement in it regarding marriage.

Are you serious?

Are you serious in that the national government has rights regarding marriage policy?

I think that much is obvious.

Quote from: Article 1, Section 5, Clause 5
To establish uniform rules of Naturalization and Alienation, Marriage and Divorce, and Adoption and Emancipation of Minors throughout the Republic of Atlasia.
