I'm sorry, I had something I wanted to say about the amendment but I lost it. I hereby call a vote on Sjoyce's amendment.  I intend to begin final voting pretty soon after this amendment is done if not much more is said, so if you have more you want to add to the discussion don't hesitate to do so now. Legislators have 48 hours to vote Aye, Nay or Abstain.

The Take the Power Back Act of 2014.

1. In the event that Federal Statute is being challenged by the Imperial Dominion of the South in the Supreme Court, the Emperor may direct with executive order the temporary nullification of the Federal Statute in dispute within the IDS until the case is decided by the Supreme Court. Attorney General shall include a request for a stay of the federal statute in dispute until the case is decided by the Supreme Court.

Resolution on Popular Sovereignty

Whereas, people deserve the right to choose for themselves their government and;

Whereas, recent world events have shown support for popular sovereignty in other nations;

Be it resolved, that the Imperial Dominion of the South officially supports the right all oppressed peoples to vote on whether or not they wish to remain in their current countries or to become independent nations.

I'll go with Zebulon Vance. Let's break the stranglehold with someone, almost anyone will do.

My Congressman is chair of the Congressional Nepal Caucus and I was talking to him about the time the caucus went to Bhutan to get them to let in more Nepalese refugees. He told me that they were the nicest, happiest people in the world and that the king was the most charming person of all. They all had such a wonderful time that it didn't really sink in until they left that not only had the King refused the request to let in more refugees: they had actually pledged to evict the ones they had as fast as possible.

So I guess I go with odd government.

Wait, so this would have the Emperor nullify the FEDERAL law, not the Imperial one?
262  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS2: Resolution on Popular Sovereignty [Debating] on: April 08, 2014, 10:33:37 pm
I'll put my question in amendment form:

I'd consider Cuomo and maybe Hillary or Warner if the Republican was bad enough and the Republicans were sure to hold part of Congress.

What happened? The non-French speakers want to know too!

Well at least this is an Atlas series where the US could actually match its real world accomplishment and be the world's largest GDP by 1900.
268  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS1: Imperial Law Enforcement Reform Act [Final Vote] on: April 04, 2014, 08:16:42 pm
Nay (not a big fan of tying police hands)
269  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS2: Resolution on Popular Sovereignty [Debating] on: April 04, 2014, 04:23:28 pm
Why should we mention Chechnya specifically? There are plenty of regions in Russia and elsewhere that desire independence. Maybe we should instead support in general the right of regions to enjoy self-determination? It fits in rather well with previous events in the South.
270  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Swearing in of New Officeholders on: April 04, 2014, 04:13:10 pm
I, Dereich, do solemnly affirm that I will faithfully execute the office of IDS legislator and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia and the Imperial Dominion of the South, so help me Dave.

Patrick Murphy has the right profile to run statewide, representing a district that is somewhat more Republican than the state as a whole is not a bad staging point for a statewide campaign.

The mayor of Jacksonville might be an option (depending on how good a job he's done as mayor), as well as Val Demings.

Alvin Brown could never win the Democratic primary; he's far too right wing for the urban leftists. It'll get him a pretty easy reelection, but he'll never fly with the state Dems unless they're even more desperate than normal (which is already pretty desperate).


He's to the left of Charlie Crist, so the urban leftists can learn to deal with it if the DSCC clears the way.

I'd actually argue he's to the right of Charlie Crist. He's had more conflicts with the city council from the right than the left; he's even shown up to a few tea party meetings and gotten a degree of support from them for some of his policies. Of course, if Crist had been mayor of Jacksonville I expect he would have been to Brown's right, but that's just a hypothetical.

Perhaps a few state senators should be thrown in the mix; Thrasher or Latvala might want to have a crack at it. For the Dems, minority leader Chris Smith will be hitting his term limit right around 2016, he might want to jump in.
