I've started seeing ads for Phillip Levine being  "bipartisan" and 'solution driven' on my twitter feed. Long speculated to be planning a gubernatorial run, I would say the Miami Beach mayor is strongly considering it or another statewide office bid based on that and his other indications.
Do you think as a Dem or an indie? He's been linked to both, and he's got the cash to be credible as an independent.

Also, dear God.

I've never understood the impetus to rename the regions and I'll be opposing this change.

I've always supported strong regional governments, and while conventionally reducing the size of regional governments has been seen as a solution to inactivity, reducing the size of the federal government might work just as well. This plan has my tentative support.

FBI has launched an investigation into redevelopment deals in Tally, including several involving Gillum's former campaign treasurer. Not good!

Shaping up to be a four-way fight on both sides of the aisle: Graham, Gillum, King, and of course the looming figure of John Morgan for the Dems, while (though Putnam is the only formally announced candidate) Corcoran, Latvala, and now DeSantis are all varying shades of likely for the Rs.

Phil Levine??

Lord knows what he's doing. Last I heard he was running as a Dem but also opening the door for an independent run but also hiring a GOP consultant and seriously thinking about running on that side. I doubt he goes far regardless of what label he picks, but \_(ツ)_/

Pam Keith or Reginald Lister would be strong nominees for Attorney General.

Carlos Gimenez or David Jolly are the only Republicans I think I would support over Graham. Unfortunately, Gimenez probably won't run.

Keith is running for FL-18. Reginald Luster is a some dude and I have no idea why you think he should run for AG. Gimenez is keeping his job and Jolly is going to try to get his old one back.

Excellent idea and should be extended to cover all homeless individuals, not just fire victims.

I think it's valuable to clearly define the lines between the regions and the federal government but I'm unsure that this (as opposed to a CA, which this would probably lead to anyways) is the best way to go about that
23  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SB 2017-103: The Ending High Fructose Corn Syrup Subsidization Act (Debating) on: June 18, 2017, 06:25:27 am
I'm deeply wary of removing all sugar tariffs. The research I could find on the subject suggests that Atlasian production would be hit, especially in cane sugar (-8%), while employment in sugar production (-2.8%) and sugar processing (-1.6%) would slide. I'm not sure that that's worth it for what's at most a 1% decline in the cost of refined sugar.

     The key factor here is getting manufacturers to shift over from HFCS to sugar. The public health benefits of achieving that would be substantial.

Could you link to something on the public health benefits? Most of what I've read suggests they're essentially the same health-wise.

can I duel with ben kenobi

suggested game: rubik's cube

i mean i guess if you both took a video and there was some way to guarantee it was fair and unaltered it could count as an "online game." though traditionally the challenged party is allowed to pick the weapons.
