I never would have thought that there would be a crisis involving overzealous militias/regional governments and secession attempts where the IDS would be the only peaceful and loyal state. These are interesting times.

Nothing about DemPGH's resignation should have been controversial at all; Tyrion's succession shouldn't have warranted debate, let alone multiple attempted coups. Also, Tyrion is the only one claiming the presidency. Nobody else, including Snowstalker, is claiming that they are now Atlasia's president. People have been trying to sidestep the government by setting up new organizations, bringing back old ones or trying to use the regions. If any of these were more than half-baked or had even a sliver of legitimate authority behind them we might have an issue, but as it is nobody will be questioning Tyrion's authority by tomorrow or so making this poll completely unnecessary.

Aye.

I introduced a similar amendment that likewise failed. It's unfortunate that the people, who are expected to fight in and die in our conflicts with others, do not have the right to determine whether or not they will do so. If there's enough public support for the idea, I would love to introduce it again and see it passed.

Since when have your bills been predicated on public support?

If there is one place where succession for a 51st state would do much more good than harm to many people, it would be for Dade, Osceola, Orange, Monroe, Palm Beach and Broward counties.

We say this all the time. The state would be so much better if we could eject Dade, Broward and Palm Beach.

Classify all spending as ordinary or extraordinary, publish a big book showing how well balanced the ordinary budget is and don't tell anyone about the extraordinary expenses. Never attempt to fix anything, hoping the problem goes away. Its foolproof.
83  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 2: The Necessary Judiciary Changes Amendment (Final Vote) on: September 29, 2014, 10:30:22 pm
heh heh, oops. Aye. And yeah, I always treated our rules and procedures as more like....guidelines. Hey, if Congress doesn't stick 100% by its rules why should we?

Using Congress as an example of proper behavior is terrible and I promise to never do it again

so which Ayrshire is your favorite everyone? I think the best is East Ayrshire because of the trippy background image plus the official vote announcer being awesome and giving the audience a penalty for excessive celebration

All Ayrshires are equal. They're all in it together when it comes to the horrible affliction of being Ayrshire.

Well, I just want to point out the general malaise on the IDS judicial front; it would be nice if we could think of extra duties for the magistrate to handle.

What do you have in mind? Voting booths like in the Northeast?

I don't have any specific proposals; maybe we need to start pumping out constitutionally shaky laws here in the legislature Tongue

You'll be a wonderful president, Lumine. I'm happy to endorse you.
