Too cold, too boring, too rural, too leftist. HS.

Awful policy. A good reason to put the Republicans in charge of the Senate.

Honestly, my view of FL-2 from living here is that it's not going to be the big race y'all are all hoping or expecting it to be. There is little to no talk about it in Tallahassee, even from the political types who are big into this sort of thing; the race for Governor and the upcoming session of the legislature are much bigger news around here. Either way, unless something wacky happens this is going to be a 2 or 3 point race and which side turns out more people is going matter much much more than who gets the very few persuadable voters.

Which should surprise exactly nobody. Charlie Crist's former (maybe still current?) boss and key adviser John Morgan is the one leading the medical marijuana initiative.

I say yes only because this is exactly what we tried to do in the IDS during the initial crisis. Just goes to show the IDS is the most forward thinking region.
634  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Sane region request. on: January 20, 2014, 12:13:19 am
Another voice for the IDS here. We're a very open and welcome region. If you want to be a zombie that's fine: we'll tell you when elections come up and do our best to involve you when public involvement is necessary. But if you want to be active, great! Turnover in the legislature is common and there is always something going on. Being elected is very possible for anyone who wants to be, new people are always getting into office. And, as said before, the region has always been very moderate and accommodating to new arrivals to our southern paradise.

Option 11 for me.

Not so. You're still a southerner, even if you've run away like the prodigal son.

I've worked with all of them and I approve of everyone serving now.

Aye on the expulsion of Snowstalker.
Aye on the endorsement of hifly
640  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Federalist Party of Atlasia: General Thread on: January 11, 2014, 01:32:16 am
I think this is an expulsion we all can agree on Smiley

Does Puerto Rico have anyone in it at this point? I'm pretty sure it still counts as a state but none of these maps incorporate it.

Just got back from the game. Although the BCS produced some stinkers over the years, this bowl season turned out pretty great. Also, the Auburn people were all very classy and if my team wasn't the one smacking them down I'd root for them without hesitation.

Voted FDP last time, but reunification means I definitely want the right back in office. CDU.
644  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / IDS Voting Booth: Expulsion has a Purpose/Fix the Regions Amendments on: January 02, 2014, 02:18:52 am
Voting is hereby opened on these two amendments. Voting will last 7 days. Please vote aye, nay or abstain.

Expulsion Has a Purpose Amendment

Quote
Article 1, Section 1, Clause 2 is amended as follows:
2. No Person shall be a Senator who has not attained 200 or more posts, whose account is not at least 60 days old, and is not a registered voter in the Region that they represent. Nor shall any person be elected, appointed or otherwise selected to be a Senator whilst still within a term from which the Senator has previously been expelled from by the Senate.

[] Aye
[] Nay
[] Abstain



Fix the Regions Amendment Take Two

Quote
Article IV, Section 2 is amended to read:
Section 2: Regional Boundaries
1. The existing Regions of Atlasia are adopted unaltered by this Constitution.
2. The consent of the Senate is required for any change in Regional boundaries.
3. The consent of the Regions being changed is required except when the quantity of regions is being altered.
4. The Senate may by law admit new States to the Republic of Atlasia. The Senate may apportion this State to a Region via proper legislation.
5. The Senate, by a 2/3 vote, along with the consent of a majority of the citizens in two-thirds of the regions may vote to alter the quantity of Regions ("consent process"). Any constitutional changes to the composition of the Legislative or Executive Branches necessitated as a result of a proposed regional contraction or expansion must be conditionally passed as an amendment in concurrence with the consent process, with said amendment going into effect at the same time as the new regional boundaries. The boundaries of the Regions shall be set by a committee made up of the existing regional executives of all regions, as well as the Vice President. The Senate may regulate the committee via proper legislation. The boundaries must be approved by a majority of the Senate. The boundaries shall go into effect in concurrence with the following Class A Senate Elections or at a time set via proper legislation if such a categorization would no longer exist under the new number of regions.
6. Should the committee to set boundaries not have an approved map within two months of its beginning, the boundaries shall be set by the Registrar General.

[] Aye
[] Nay
[] Abstain

Although I'm not necessarily in favor of your decision, I congratulate you and think you made the right decision by honeymooning the IDS. Enjoy your trip.

I've had too much champagne to make a clever post, so you get this.

Happy new year.
647  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS2: The 'We're Not The Mideast' Act on: December 30, 2013, 11:18:05 pm
I have a thought: I'm a pro-life person myself and would prefer to see none of this go through. However, I've always felt that the Emperor shouldn't stubbornly resist what seems to be a decent public consensus. I'd say however, that some of those bills being repealed just seem like common sense, working to improve the process and make it generally safer (while also possibly reducing the number of abortions) especially the Mother's Health Abortion Initiative and the Safe Abortion Initiative. As long as I'm still Emperor I don't think I could sign a bill which repealed those initiatives.

Those two initiatives were passed a while back, and we repealed their enforcement sections without repealing the rest of the law. Those two are really just housekeeping.

Even so, I still think the principles behind them are ones the IDS should stand for.

What SirNick said. I'm not really sure what use this thread serves. Is it just meant to be an announcement that we'll soon get an announcement to open the booths?

It won't. The only people concerned about future state supreme court appointments are hardline partisans anyway.
