All right, gentlemen, I have been informed that I can resign* from this special term I'm currently serving, swear into my full term on the 2nd, and declare a LOA of about two weeks or so as my life becomes a living hell that only serves to prepare me for many more in the future, so I believe that is what I shall do.

Have fun and sorry Nix and Nick and Polnut for being so unbecoming of a Senator with regards to the timing of my announcement and the election and such things.

*How exactly do I do this, by the way? Do I create a thread? Do I make a mess of the perfect order of the swearing in thread? Do I consume the flesh of the innocent as they scream for mercy?

You can resign in the swearing in thread.

Thank you kindly.

When I knew I was going to be absent for a month of my possible future term... I didn't run.

Would have been worth the month of absence for the three months to follow though and overal much better then who got elected instead in that regard. Tongue

As I fully intend to do. Furthermore, it's not a month. It's twelve days - May 2 to May 15 if I have my numbers right.

Consume the flesh of the innocent

Thanks, Mr. Possible Future President.

If it says "confidence in science" and follows the general trend of results at the top being more pro-science, why is one of the questions basically "Do you believe in a god?"? Seems a bit out of place to me (not to disparage our forum's religiouses, but the relationship between religion and science ranges from diametrically opposed to fundamentally different).

My, my, this is all very un-nice of you. I shall resign on the AFG board after my swearing-in (attempting to at least vote on legislation in the meantime) and get back to you gentlemen sometime in May.

For the next month or so, I probably won't be able to post on here or the Forum at large (or at least in a significantly reduced quantity than normal), seeing as I've got APs and have to study. Therefore, I am declaring a leave of absence from the Senate.

I shall support this bill; sharks are our friends.

So are pigs and cows. 

Pigs and cows aren't endangered last time I checked.

Quite a bit to the left of Louise Slaughter, if I do say so myself.

I'm cool with section 2. Section 1 and 3 may need some work. I'm not in favor of prohibiting cities from controlling the homeless. I know, I know, I am a terrible person, but if there are no controls over them, it will drive people away from these cities and then we will just have more overrun and dying areas on our hands, and that is good for none of us.

Or, you know, we could give them all a home.

Adam, Lumine, Shua, and Goldwater I believe are deserving of several claps.

*clap clap clap*

Thank you, Dave bless you, and good night.

The one who murdered Vietnamese children.
BUH, BUH, BUH CIVIL RIGHTS AND MUH MEDICARE!

The "muh x" argument only goes so far, Sanchez.

...Someone voted twice in the Presidential election, and then another person didn't vote in the VP election. There are 19 votes for President and 16 for VP.

It sucks, but there's not much I can do about it unless they wish to out themselves.

Cathcon proposed awhile back going to strictly 1 vote (since IRL you can't be in the Senate and House) but I don't think anybody finds that particularly desirable.

We could have separate House and Senate elections if you're willing to keep track of one extra thread once in a while.

Only one person is super for sure to win this election: Adam Griffin. Congrats!

If we assume the first House round would be just like this (which it almost certainly will be) and that Custer and Vance go to the second round, and therefore that we bosses are to be kingmakers, I propose a Vance/Smith unity ticket (and possibly a merger).

I dunno how much influence we actually have, but if we can decide that, that sounds alright. I assume it'd be called the People's Alliance?

I think the good course now would be for the Destiny and Whig parties to merge into the PA.

Would the UK be called the United Kingdom of England, Wales, and Northern Ireland? Not the best name if you ask me.
1700  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: What was Hunter S. Thompson closer to being politically? on: April 20, 2014, 08:10:46 pm
he was no Libertarian. He viewed capitalism... as a clear form of outright degeneracy.

So do Actually Existing Libertarians.

By Actually Existing Libertarians, I assume you are referring to actual libertarians, i.e. class struggle anarchists or anarcho-syndicalists, or any variety or shade of anarchism that tinges the black with the red?

Going no-true-Scotsman-esque on us, eh, Tiffany?
