I think this is a decent overall proposal. A thriving Wiki and Almanac better serves the interests of the region and is good for long-term stability. I see nothing bad in the proposals put forth.

Thanks Adam. I'd be lying if I said I didn't have you in mind for the job when writing it. Wink

On an unrelated note, when do newly elected legislators take office?

You were gone for like a day Tongue

And also, I was at an out of town wedding that weekend. I am also going to New York tomorrow and will be gone until Monday the 30th, so my posting will be sporadic during this time. I am a busy man, but I won't be quite as busy after mid-August.

So I guess we have to decide who gets the exciting duty of updating the wiki? Wink

Quote
The Valkyrtweed Act

1. In the event that an individual assumes the office of the Presidency of Atlasia who is not the certified winner by the Department of Federal Elections and who is not part of the line of succession, the Emperor of the IDS shall issue that "Operation Valkyrtweed" is in effect.

2. If Operation Valkyrtweed is in effect the following shall happen:
2a. The entire IDS Militia shall be activated.
2b. Unless directed to do otherwise by the Emperor, the IDS militia shall escort the the DoFE certified winner of the Presidency to Nyman D.C. and work to assume control over the city to keep the peace during the transition and to insure no other parties attempt a coup.
2c. The IDS Militia shall assume control over the city of Nyman for 30 days,  unless the Emperor recalls them sooner or the Legislature votes on renewing the 30 days.
2d. IDS Militia acting under Operation Valkyrtweed  may not use lethal force unless attacked first.

3. The IDS Militia is hereby to be known as the Imperial Guard.


-----------

Tweed V. DoFE ended up as it should have, however it taught everyone an important lesson, that coups are possible here in this great nation, and it would only take two justices to kill democracy. If a coup, whether by courts or other means were to take place, we'd  need a plan. We may at times disagree with the Federal Government but while we are part of this nation it is our duty to ensure that those in power are the very same the people put in power.

For that reason I introduce this bill. It may never have to be used, as we all should hope, but as long as there is the chance of coups or revolution (that we do not support) then we have a plan of how to react. This bill does just that and I urge my colleagues to vote in favor

I'd be up for it in the future, but I've got too much on my plate at the moment. I know Adam ran on the idea of wiki modernization, so I do think he'd be a good fit if he's up for it. Haven't seen him around much lately though.

Re: the Valkyrtweed Act... I strongly support the spirit of this bill.

But I do wonder if we might be able to avoid more bloodshed by sheltering the duly-elected president somewhere in the IDS and working to establish a temporary capitol here.

Either way, I will support this bill.

The issue there is that we can say the true president is the legit guy until we are blue i nthe face, but if we do not control nyman the other side will be in the drivers seat and can control the other branches of government + the military. Seizing control of Nyman D.C. means we are not just simply some rebel group.

     We could hide secret bases in the region, known only to their staff, the Emperor, and the rightfully elected President. Tongue

You say that like it's a bad thing. Wink

PiT's suggestion ain't bad either.

If there's no other way to weasel in a little extra power for the region though, I guess I'm happy to leave it as is. It'll have my support.
