As Emperor of the Imperial Dominion of the South I hereby sign this bill into law.

If nobody objects I'll include the referendum in the regional election this Friday.

I don't think Katy Perry's eligible, and besides, does he really want a carpetbagger as his running mate?

He's a carpetbagger himself, so I doubt he wouldn't choose another one.


Born, raised, and went to college in North Carolina. Now running for a House seat representing a county she never lived in.


Birth place: New York, NY

You're an expert on carpetbaggers, aren't you? There's certainly a discussion to be had about carpetbaggers when someone from Thonotosassa moves to Pinellas - a place she's never lived before - to run for a House seat. But there's no room for a discussion with Charlie.

It's FLORIDA. The entire state is carpetbaggers.

This can't be understated. Migrants outnumber native Floridians something like 2 to 1, especially outside North Florida. The only stigma you'll find on carpetbagging here is when it comes from especially blatant opportunism.

Interesting story that's come up recently: one of the big time Florida political commenters, Peter Schorch at SaintPetersBlog, has been accused of pressuring people to buy ads to get good coverage and giving bad coverage to people who refuse. Apparently, they're restarting criminal investigations now after the Tampa Bay Times brought the story up. The story is here:  http://www.tampabay.com/news/politics/cash-for-coverage-questions-arise-about-local-political-blogger-peter/2152747

As much as I don't like it, I think a presidential system give a better chance for the right to win at least one election ever.

I know about it. I plan to put it up a bit later in the afternoon when real life stops interfering with  me letting everyone in the region know that its up.
633  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: IDS Voting Booth: The On Second Thought, Oops Amendment on: November 17, 2013, 03:44:35 pm
With 9 ayes and 1 nay this amendment passes in the IDS.
634  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: IDS Voting Booth: The On Second Thought, Oops Amendment on: November 16, 2013, 01:31:13 am
Aye
635  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS1: Dignity of the Flag Act (DEBATING) on: November 16, 2013, 01:14:48 am
Yes, yes
636  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: IDS Voting Booth: Deregistration Amendment on: November 15, 2013, 03:55:48 am
With a vote of 2 ayes to 10 nays this amendment fails in the Imperial Dominion of the South.

Trying to jumpstart a new abortion fight after what the Mideast just went through is a bold step PiT. I hope you know what you're doing.
638  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS2: IDS Constitutional Amendment Policy (DEBATING) on: November 14, 2013, 10:44:26 pm
I will not accept that as friendly, so a vote would be needed
639  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS1: Dignity of the Flag Act (DEBATING) on: November 14, 2013, 11:20:31 am
Personally, I'm not a fan of the cloture votes at all. There is almost always a consensus to end debate anyway by the time a cloture vote is called.
640  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS2: IDS Constitutional Amendment Policy (DEBATING) on: November 13, 2013, 02:14:03 pm
I'm in favor as well, its more convenient all around.

642  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS1: Dignity of the Flag Act (DEBATING) on: November 13, 2013, 01:53:59 am
Friendly, unless anyone has objections.
643  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS1: Dignity of the Flag Act (DEBATING) on: November 12, 2013, 11:25:17 pm
Friendly. I don't think its ideal, but its far better than the current flag.

Just to throw out a suggestion: do you think it might be a good idea to put whatever comes out to a vote? Its not usual procedure, but its the kind of thing people might care about and could coincide with the upcoming regional election.
644  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS2: IDS Constitutional Amendment Policy (DEBATING) on: November 12, 2013, 12:47:37 pm
I don't think PR-STV would be necessary with only two options. I'm fine with a vote though.

Ugh, Obama/Biden.
646  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: 10 years: The Decennial on: November 11, 2013, 07:22:44 pm
I'm just throwing this out there, and I'm not even sure if I would support it, but what about the statute reboot idea?

So you want to celebrate 10 years....by erasing everything that was done in those 10 years.

Its an interesting requirement Velasco, but I'm not sure if amendments EVER get that much turnout. I don't think it should be impossible to amend the constitution.

The On Second Thought, Oops Amendment
The "On Second Thought, We Do Have Expectations Amendment" is amended as follows:

If the President or Vice President or a member of the Senate does not post on the Atlas Fantasy Government board for seven consecutive days (168 hours) without posting a leave of absence an article of impeachment shall be automatically placed before Senate in accordance with Article I, Section 2, Clause 3 of the Constitution and thus considered accordingly.

Voters have seven days to vote aye, nay or to abstain.

Worst state (normal)

For once Snowstalker is totally right.

If you're agreeing with Snowstalker on something I think its time to seriously reevaluate that opinion.
