I guess since the kings are required I'll take Stannis.

Was looking forward to reseizing the Vale as Royce, but maybe that's for the future

Far from supporting this bill, I would support harsher penalties for those polygamists who try to come here from other regions.

Sorry for taking so long, I lost my password and hadn't bothered to fix it till now.

Nay
81  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS: Protecting people from explosives Amendment on: December 13, 2014, 09:55:41 pm
I see no reason to add an ambiguous phrase from several hundred years ago to the constitution. The low-potency explosives thing is pretty dumb, but the replacement is even worse. At this point I will be voting nay.

It COULD happen, right? Hope springs eternal

Aye

We've tried that before. Technically the current law allows for the number of class 1 legislators to drop from 3 to 1 if not enough people are running, but even in an election where only 1 person ran we just filled the other two spots with write-ins.
85  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS: Speaker PiT Commemoration Act on: December 08, 2014, 09:20:01 pm
While I agree that right now the region can only support 3 legislators, I don't think it'll be that way forever. Maybe we should set some kind of trigger for the legislature going back up to five? Something like:

4. Should the population of the IDS increase to over 40 voters, the legislature will revert to five members, elected in a set of 3 during odd numbered months and 2 in even numbered months.
86  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS: Taxpayer Receipt Act on: December 08, 2014, 08:45:24 pm
Well I support this; it probably won't do much, but it won't cost much either and transparency is always a good thing.

Sorry for my lateness; its law school exam week.

Mary de Guise, Queen Regent of Scotland



Like the fate of the subjugated Protestants, Knox's punishment will be settled once the rebels have been forced from the field. He will be kept under constant armed guard, with his life forfeit should he attempt escape or rescue.

We will allow small numbers of Protestants to travel to Nova Scotia. Before being granted permission to leave these Protestants must swear an oath of loyalty to my daughter the Queen and to my regency. In addition, they must find a Catholic counterpart to go with them so that the colony continues to have a Catholic majority.

We must not let these rebels continue to poison the minds of the good Scottish peasants! My brother's army will move north at an appropriate pace for winter and engage the rebels at his discretion, when or if he feels the situation to be militarily advantageous.

We recognize the right of the Prince of Orange to do with his land as he pleases. Though we cannot condone the promotion of heresy that he and his wife continue to allow, the same could be said of the Spanish "Edict of Toleration." It is our hope that this new influx of Catholics will remind the lost Englishmen of their true moral obligations.

I will run for reelection in my district.

How would you calculate each individuals sales tax contribution? I know it doesn't really matter, but I'm not sure that kind of tax number is around anywhere. Maybe just assign everyone the mean?
90  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS: Game Moderation Reform Amendment II on: December 06, 2014, 01:46:37 pm
I'm sorry, I forgot to submit my vote for this. I would have voted aye.

Both. Honest at the lower levels and political at the top.
92  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS: Taxpayer Receipt Act on: December 06, 2014, 01:52:30 am
How would each person's tax contribution be determined? Just income tax? Income and property? Would sales taxes only be dealt with separately?

Also, what month would this be done in? Usually the budget comes out in January or Febuary. Would it be done early with a new budget and old tax number or later with an older budget and newer tax numbers?
93  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS: Game Moderation Reform Amendment II on: December 02, 2014, 12:49:19 pm
Well I'm glad they didn't get rid of the position entirely. If this passes is the GM no longer responsible for cost analyses?

John Knox is the source of the Protestant surge and has frequently preached against the rule of my daughter and myself because of our sex; to ensure his capture Stirling will be our primary target.

Scotland has few resources; firm footholds in the New World would make a fitting dowry for my daughter's union. Explorers will be dispatched to areas far north of Spanish and French colonies in Canada to find suitable spots to establish a colony and to search for a possible Northwest Passage to link us with the riches of the Indies.

The civil conflict continues to rage on; now is not the time for drastic action. The question of how the Protestants will be dealt with (and they will be dealt with) is put on hold until the rebels have surrendered. For now, keeping a watchful eye on Protestants and heavily punishing those who proselytize is enough.

We wish Godspeed for all good Catholics who are fighting the good fight against the Turks and wish them the best in their holy struggle.
96  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS: Testing Our Students Act on: November 27, 2014, 09:34:52 pm
Aye, and though it's a little late I accept the amendment as friendly
97  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS: Testing Our Students Act on: November 25, 2014, 03:40:42 am
Well, I agreed to sponsor this because it grates me that these two privately administered tests are absolutely necessary for college admission and its conceivable that their costs could be a high enough barrier to stop someone from entering college. Beyond that, I don't know what the original sponsor was thinking.

There can be no accommodation with the heretics! Loyal forces will find and arrest John Knox for his agitation against the legitimate Church and government. Knox should be taken alive unless he chooses to resist. The clergy must redouble their efforts to stop this falsehood from spreading while it is still in its infancy.

France has been Scotland's friend and protector for centuries, is my own birthplace, and is the land of the Queen's husband: we must accept our friend's help, especially when the rebel lords are so blatantly being aided by the bastard queen of England. The combined Scottish and French forces will be led by my brother, the Duke of Guise. However, all military actions involving French forces will also include a Scottish component, supervised by a Scottish lord. There is no need to cause unnecessary unrest among the populace by making our holy struggle appear to be a foreign takeover. In addition to French aid, we call on Catholics of any country to aid us in our fight against heresy.

When reinforcements arrive small scale military operations shall begin against lesser rebel lords in areas outside of and around their strongholds. Those commanding should avoid large-scale battle with the rebels. The majority of forces must be kept on constant vigil against English incursions.

As for my daughter I put my full faith in her mother-in-law Catherine de' Medici, to properly act in the royal couple's interests. I will not go over her head on the issue of consummation.

I'll spomsor the Testing our Students Act. It needs work but could be made useful
