I think Ted Cruz gets a sex change and becomes the Iron Lady.

If we're going to do Game of Thrones names, the Governor should obviously be the King in the North and the Speaker should be the Hand of the King.

The Murray Bunker: Statement on all this Recount Crap

"It's obvious that the system we currently have is broken. Too many Americans are being disenfranchised due to the McCain-Bloomberg campaign's dirty tricks in Mississippi, and we can't even find a winner in Pennsylvania. If we want to see clean elections, and not 2000 redux every time there's a close election, we need to abolish or at least significantly reform the Electoral College. Governor Dean and I will do that - of course, now that voting's over, I suppose my pleas are falling upon the ears of my colleagues in the lower chamber of Congress, all of whom I urge to make the right choice when they convene. Even if Mayor Bloomberg and Senator Bayh win, I will stand by their side and work to reform our electoral system."

Hey, guys, check out the Generic Leftist Third Way Buzzword Party (GLTWBP)!
I don't understand why you're so critical of a new party. New parties make Atlasia more competitive, and therefore more fun. You could say the same thing minus leftist for other parties.

I detest Moderate Heroes as a rule (now, I don't think you are one - your political positions make you out to be a good guy), and have grown to instinctively distrust anyone calling themselves any sort of "third way between the parties", even though in this case the parties are center-left and left.
I dont know what odd instinct is telling you to hate 3rd way parties, but its up to you if you want to listen to it. We, aka I, am open to critiques and comments about the social democrats, but please keep the satire off this thread.

OK. How will you be different from the Labor and Liberal Parties?

Foreign Aid is a tiny part of the Federal budget so not sure why this is a big deal.  That said, my ideal budget for foreign aid is $0.

So no AIDS or hunger relief in Africa? No planes to Taiwan or Israel?

Equal Rights!

Also, I'm considering doing a Cathcon-style sweeping minor-party epic, 1789-2012. Any takers?

Sure, if you wanna do it. I started it 76 because post Civil War is just a good demarcation line with American politics (and minor parties basically got started again in 1876).

True, true - there weren't that many parties besides the Dem Reps (and the Feds, but  those guys) in the early days.

We can begin on a light note --who supports changing Northeast' government titles to be more Game of Thrones-esque, like how the South is imperial.
We could do Iroquois-based titles, like Grand Council for the Assembly and so on.

Sachem!

Approve of all but one, about whom I mistakenly didn't vote for.

Yes, of course it should be.  Assault is never justified.

However:

didn't read the question right, and accidentally voted No (D)
1696  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: NEW PACIFIC REGION DISCUSSION on: June 27, 2013, 11:11:36 pm
I would say the so-called "Final Constitution" is in conflict with the Federal Constitution.  To wit: Article VI Clause 1:

All Atlasian citizens are guaranteed the rights to free exercise of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, and freedom to petition the government to address problems.

By disestablishing the government and preventing the establishing of another, the Fifth Pacific Constitution interferes with this fundamental right enshrined in our Federal Constitution.

They can petition the IDS government, which is administering the territory.
1697  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Northeast Reform Commission on: June 27, 2013, 07:58:01 pm
As a past and (if my schemes succeed) future pillar of Northeastern politics and culture, I recommend that we rename the Governor the King in the North.
1698  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: U.S. Midterm Elections, 1922 on: June 27, 2013, 06:42:14 pm
Socialist/Yes/Yes. I'd also like to echo Lief's question.

As one of those people myself (and the scion of a long line of dirty hippie pot-smoking college professors who go to Berkeley and vote straight Democratic), strong FFs.
