Such a great state. Nowhere else is comparable to Florida.

This thread went completely off the rails. Exactly as Griffin would have wanted.

I hereby appoint Velasco to the legislature.
631  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: The Imperial Dominion of the South's Legislature on: November 06, 2013, 11:59:09 pm
I support Scott for Speaker.
Will the Emperor be nominated someone to fill the vacant seat?

I've spoken with Hashemite about his resignation and am currently trying to find someone to fill the rest of his term.
632  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: The Imperial Dominion of the South's Legislature on: November 06, 2013, 09:14:36 pm
With Speaker Hashemite stepping down, our immediate priority is now to select a new speaker. Anyone want to put their name forward?
633  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS1: Dignity of the Flag Act (DEBATING) on: November 06, 2013, 07:29:18 pm
I'm interested to hear what Hash and Small L have to say. Their opinions matter just as much but we haven't heard from either for a while.

I just saw an anti-Crist ad ALREADY on TV. It was a bunch of statements by Democrats (Sink, Meek, Karen Thurman, Buckhorn, and Al Gore) on Crist's duplicitous nature and his flip flops. Scott is starting as soon as possible.
635  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS2: IDS Constitutional Amendment Policy (DEBATING) on: November 04, 2013, 05:55:42 pm
I agree with Small L, god knows that the constitution has so many amendments already that it shouldn't be easy to add more to it. (irony)

I'll accept Small L's amendment as friendly.

I will not be running for reelection, so I hope that helps a bit.
637  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: FL 2014: Crist is in. on: November 03, 2013, 01:57:24 pm
Has Crist ever been a conservative? I remember after he was elected as a consensus Republican, he was leading on moderate issues like restoring voting rights to disenfranchised people with a criminal record, softening the ban on same-sex couples adopting, and accepting stimulus funds to shield Florida's people from the worst effects of the recession. He didn't become a moderate in response to Rubio running against him; he tried to govern as a moderate and was driven out of the GOP by the Tea Party as a result.

uhh....I don't think he EVER ran on anything like felon enfranchisement. That would have ended him for good. As for the whole "governing like a moderate" thing that has more to do with WHEN he was elected. Charlie Crist saw that Democrats were popular and ascendant while he was governor, so he modified his governing style to be more with the times. If he could have possibly predicted the tea party wave he would have never done half of that stuff, he'd govern as the "Reagan Conservative" he campaigned as when he was running for senate. And as for being driven out, its just not true. If Crist had decided to stay as governor he would have been absolutely safe. McCollum wouldn't have ran because it wasn't his turn and Crist wouldn't have been vulnerable to Scott like McCollum was. He overreached and tried to change his positions too fast and it caught up with him.

As far as I'm concerned, the only person in this thread who should be welcoming Crist's return is Joyce, and only because he's rooting for a native son. For Democrats who are happy about it: I don't know what you're expecting with him. I expect Crist to get more done with the strongly Republican legislature than Scott does. Crist isn't gonna push any of the red meat he throws out to democrats once he's in office. He'll just govern like he did last time: as a populist who will support whatever is best for Charlie.

Anyway, this race is nowhere near over; Its still even money that Scott is reelected on his record and on Crist's skeletons.
638  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: An Announcement from Fmr. Emperor PiT on: November 03, 2013, 02:07:30 am
I think this is as good a place as any to announce that I will not be running for reelection.

I'm excited about your return PiT, I'm sure you'll do just as well for our region in the future as you did in your previous terms in office and you have my wholehearted endorsement.
639  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS1: Dignity of the Flag Act (DEBATING) on: November 03, 2013, 01:35:05 am
Its hard for me to comment on these. My laptop's screen shows every color as either pink or green. I'll comment more tomorrow when I get on a screen that shows regular color.

But again, this is meant to be a coat of arms separate from the flag, correct? Is discussion of a coat of arms appropriate for this bill?
640  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS1: Dignity of the Flag Act (DEBATING) on: November 02, 2013, 02:57:31 pm
Do we currently have a coat of arms?
641  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Enderman Internal Polling: December IDS Imperial Election on: November 01, 2013, 03:15:02 pm
Do any of these candidates oppose the quasi-Confederate flag the region is considering adopting as its official standard?

If you're so opposed to that proposal you are welcome to submit a proposal yourself.
642  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS1: Dignity of the Flag Act (DEBATING) on: November 01, 2013, 03:03:08 am
I kind of like it, it shows our Southern uniqueness. We ain't gonna use those "regular" northern flag poles! Not to say I'm invested in it one way or the other.
643  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Alex Sink running for Bill Young's old house seat on: October 31, 2013, 11:41:46 pm
Sink is the strongest Democrat (and by that I mean Democrat Democrat, excepting Bill Nelson) in the state. If this is the office she chooses to go for that's great. And even with Sink its still winnable for Republicans if the environment is right, Sink runs a bad campaign, and if the Republicans can convince someone good to run. With the tragicomedy that is the Florida Democrats I'd guess a minimum of two of those will happen.

And can we please keep this confined to one thread? I think there are 3 threads about this seat now.
644  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS2: IDS Constitutional Amendment Policy (DEBATING) on: October 31, 2013, 12:46:05 pm
As of now, the amendment process is this:

In the Imperial Dominion of the South, all Amendments are introduced as legislation pursuant to Article III, Clause 1 of the IDS Constitution. Upon passing a vote by the Imperial Legislature, the Amendment is then voted on in a referendum of all citizens of the region and must gain 2/3rds support of the voters in that referendum to pass the Amendment into law.

This would be added to that, in most parts not replacing it. It does open up a question though of whether an amendment should get 2/3rds of the votes or just a majority though.
645  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS2: IDS Constitutional Amendment Policy (DEBATING) on: October 30, 2013, 04:34:06 pm
Earlier in the year, this was a petition which picked up a lot of steam but went nowhere because nobody submitted it to the queue at the time. I've decided to correct that. I saw no problems with it myself, as it just codifies what I've already made it my practice to do.
646  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Arkansas on: October 30, 2013, 02:25:35 am
No way Florida gets FS, though.

I'll say that Florida doesn't top 40% approval.

Florida is still the best state in the Confederacy outside of Virginia.

Louisiana, Virginia, North Carolina and probably even Texas will get higher approvals than Florida will. Several members of this forum have some weird vendetta against the greatest of states. I think its jealously; they resent us for our year round pleasant weather.
647  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Atlasia Forever [Coming Soon] on: October 28, 2013, 08:05:48 pm
Ah June, I was speaker and the IDS was assuming temporary control over the Pacific for their own good. Good times.

I'd like to be an endorser if that's possible.
648  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS1: Dignity of the Flag Act (DEBATING) on: October 28, 2013, 11:53:19 am
Of course not. At this point, we're legislating for the IDS as it is now and shouldn't think any other way.

Griffin had a suggestion which was this:



and Enderman described one which was this:

Quote
: first theres a cross like FL and AL, then there's a diamond like AR, but first, around the diamond there's ten stars, kinda like NC and Paramount, also around the diamond is a red border on the top right is red and the bottom left is also red, and on the top left side there is white and just like the red part, there is white on the final part.... both of those resemble NC and TX.... the color between the red Florida-Alabamaesque cross is the Louisiana flag blue.... inside the diamond there is a Tennessee flag red and over that, that's where I get writer's block
