NEOS seems like the party that will most viscerally piss off the FP, so them.

Sounds much more like an "aww, that sucks, I'm sorry - I don't like that this happened" button than a "I hate you" button.

I had a giant debate today with my History teacher about Hillary Clinton today, she's a big fan and I challenged her to six Lincoln Douglas style debates.

Disrespectful tbh
Why she said yes and she likes having them we do debates all the time and plus she has a debating elective.

Why are you trying to bore your classmates and teacher(s) to death?
A lot of thm find it exciting and the others want to waste class time.

There are some fates worse than a boring history class.

One of them is listening to six debates about Hillary Clinton.

A hot rumor a while back - not sure how much credibility it still has - was that Rubio was interested in being in Tally in 2018.

Florida's is probably Bob Graham, or maybe Jeb!. Among currently elected officials... Nelson, maybe? Rubio? Nobody much likes anybody.

May. The fact that a wacko such as Corbyn wins at all on this forum is proof that the left-wing members are extremely ideologically rigid. Corbyn is what an old 90 year old grandma thinks Bernie Sanders is solely because he calls himself a socialist. The sad part is Corbyn fits the socialist stereotype much better than Sanders, by far.

And the fact that someone with "Libertarian" in his username is voting for Theresa May as if she were the obvious choice speaks volumes about your ideology, or lack thereof.

We thank Atlasia, her government and her people, for this recognition. We look forward to an era of fruitful diplomacy.

Let's be honest. There are, of course, individuals, both in South America, as well as in Atlasia, that are unreasonably hostile toward each another, which isn't good, but can we please avoid exploiting one person's silliness in order to escalate feelings of mutual distrust? It's just like with your statement on the so-called "Atlasian imperialism". One person proposed something, but you used it to attack Atlasia in general for "imperialism".

Nothing in my statement condemns "Atlasia in general" - I condemn the elements of the Atlasian political system that support imperialism, including, in this case, a major-party presidential candidate. "Atlasian imperialism" refers not to a political proposal, not the nation's current policy.

Frankly, I smell a lot of hypocrisy here. Just look at some very hostile toward us statements, like by your own Prime Minister. How can you be surprised that we are at least little sceptical toward having relations? First there are attacks and jabs, and then complaining of being victimized by that bad Atlasians Roll Eyes

The political rhetoric of the Prime Minister is the business of other parties and ministers. A threat to annex all our neighbors is, by any measure, much more of a threat than some of the Prime Minister's rhetoric - it is at that point that rhetoric rises to the level where it merits the attention of the Foreign Office.

South America thanks you for your swift opposition to Mr. Griffin's proposal, and your reasonable response to Mr. Classic Conservative's rhetoric. I wish you the best of luck.

I would simply like to bring the nation's attention to the fact that certain Atlasians continue to cite 'anti-Atlasian sentiment' here as a chief reason for failing to establish diplomatic relations, yet the Speaker of the Pacific Legislature can make statements actively calling for the destruction of our nation with nary a whimper of protest.

Very little, as I was 5 at the time. I don't remember anything happening the day of the attacks, but I remember the 9/12 newspaper. The event itself didn't affect my politics, but opposition to the Iraq War was probably the first political position I formed - I remember looking through the candidate comparison printed in the newspaper before the 2008 Florida primaries and only being interested in the candidates that promised to end the Iraq War. I voted Edwards in my school's mock primary because he promised to end the war the fastest, though I wasn't upset when Obama won as he'd also promised to end the war (it was Obama 13, Edwards 6, Clinton 3).

I thank you for your quick answer. I still think that this is a matter for the Foreign Minister, but alas, it would be a wonder if the excuse of a government we suffer from had got the distribution of responsibilites and portfolios right.

The Socialist Party however obviously is concerned about any sort of Atlasian imperialism - our continent has long enough suffered from it, after all!

The Foreign Ministry is actively tracking the situation. We had not wanted to unduly inflame any tensions with Atlasia given the potential for establishing diplomatic relations, but alas, isolationists prominent in their political process have made that a slim possibility regardless.

Foreign Office

Statement on Atlasian Imperialism
The Foreign Office is deeply disturbed that a major candidate for the Atlasian Presidency has proposed the annexation of multiple nations of Central America that are presently free and independent. South America stands with her Central American allies in firmly resisting Yankee imperialism.

Mr. Speaker,

To what limited extent they can, separated, as we are, by oceans as well as religious and linguistic barriers, South American nations have been leaders in addressing the Syrian refugee crisis. Brazil in particular has granted more refugee visas than any other nation on the continent - including Atlasia - but that's not to downplay the importance of the hundreds of families accepted by other nations on this continent. Uruguay, for example, has taken the lead in providing refugees with Spanish classes, healthcare, housing, and stipends until adults can find jobs - I hope that other nations can follow their lead in generously providing for refugee families.

When Spain was consumed by civil war and dictatorship, refugees fled to South America. When the Jews of Europe faced persecution, they fled abroad to nations on this continent. Bringing in people of different backgrounds helps our society grow. We see no reason to discontinue the offering of humanitarian visas to those who have been affected by the conflict in Syria. Our doors are open.

I was looking at the stats on the linked map and continue to be amused at the strange but not uncommon counting that is done for city and county splits. The count all districts that are in counties that are split. There is no benefit for a district entirely within a county and a double penalty for any chop of a county or city too small for a single district. The double count occurs since counties entirely within a district are not counted, but the moment the county is chopped it counts for two. Subsequent chops only increase the count by one each, so it is distinctly non-linear penalizing the first chop.
Who devised the counting system?  Does it reflect any court decisions, or even any conscious policy decisions, or an interpretation of the Florida Constitution.

"Unless otherwise required, districts ... where feasible must make use of existing city, county and geographical boundaries."
