I can think of one thing that would make the pass idea make sense; how about we increase the number of toll roads and use them as the primary funding method of infrastructure? With a consolidated pass system it'd be a lot easier to handle and would continue charging more for those who use roads most. The only problem is its kind of literally exactly the opposite of where this bill intended to go Tongue

I concur.

As do I.

You can buy a sunpass here that does the same thing. What did you have in mind?

With three ayes and two nays this bill has passed the legislature and is sent to the Emperor for signature or veto.

It would seem that the ABD crowd is greatly over-estimating Debs' support.  It'll be interesting to see if Roosevelt gains more votes now that Lodge is so far ahead.

On Atlas no candidate from the right, especially one up against a true leftist hero like Debs, is ever too far ahead.
85  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 1904 Presidential Election on: May 29, 2014, 01:02:54 am
Normally I'd prefer Roosevelt, but this is an anyone-but-Debs kind of situation. Lodge.

Whats the long term future for the Olympics? What are the alternatives beyond setting some country as permanent host so nobody has to bother building new infrastructure?

Aye

From what I understand of write-ins, they only count if the person declares they will accept write-ins or 1st preferences themselves in a write-in. Thus, all my preferences except the one for myself are ignored. I have no doubt everyone in the legislature would be great speakers; if any of them were running I'd be happy to vote for them over myself, thus my preferences. So technically not unanimous, but in the vote counting it ends up that way.
89  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: The Imperial Dominion of the South's Legislature on: May 28, 2014, 03:41:16 pm
Right, a unanimous decision. I'll be continuing on as speaker then. Back to business.

Well, that does it for me. And, seeing that debate has ended it seems its good for everyone else as well. All that is left is the final vote.

Legislators have 48 hours to vote aye, nay or to abstain.

FF. Not a very good politician, but not a crook and not a personification of evil. Better than Crist, which isn't saying much anything at all.

I don't like the idea of this bill. Toll roads seem like a really good idea to me (even if I have bad experiences having to go through them). They do a really good job of charging most to those who both use the services most and can best afford them. From my experiences you never HAVE to take a toll road, what you end up paying for is nothing more than a convenience cost. Plus, toll roads are almost always better maintained than normal roads and the money goes (I think) to fund our infrastructure and transportation budgets, which are now in dire straits because of recent cuts.
94  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: The Imperial Dominion of the South's Legislature on: May 26, 2014, 01:40:54 am
Sure, if you like. Legislators have 48 hours to vote for a candidate for the office of speaker. You are free to change your vote until the 48 hours have passed or all legislators have voted.

Hi, sorry. The one question I have before I'm ready to bring this to a vote is what happens with employees at private prisons. Would they be immediately be integrated as public employees? Fired? At very least, I think they would need some kind of retraining to deal with any differences in how private and public prisons might be operated. Maybe some kind of time delay before nationalization would be appropriate?
96  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: The Imperial Dominion of the South's Legislature on: May 23, 2014, 05:49:41 pm
Ok then, for now I'll be continuing on as speaker.

With four ayes and one legislator not voting this bill passes the legislature of the Imperial Dominion of the South and is sent to the Emperor for signature or veto.

I really don't like the idea of reducing taxes with unspecified cuts, but as summer is when gas prices are highest and relief would be most opportune I guess I end up saying AYE.
