Dark Lord of the Legislature is a mouthful, how about Dark Lord of the House?

PiT and I came up with this what do you guys think of this as an amendment to vote on in the regional voting booth?

Quote
Whats in a name?: Amendment

WHEREAS; What is in a name and;

That which we call our region's titles, by any other name would be just as awesome.

WHEREAS; The establishment can suck it.

RESOLVED; The following names shall be changed in the constitution and all official Documents as described below:
Southeast region to Republic of the Southeast
Governor to Emperor
Lt. Governor to Dark Lord of the Legislature
Speaker of the House to Master Speaker
Representative to Darth (name)
We should be the Southeastern Empire. Republics are for the non-evil.
amended

If I may interject, I would say that an Empire is not necessarily an evil form of government. It also suggests a desire for conquest and a degree of sovereignty that I think the federal government may object to, and the last thing we want is them getting in our business about this.

I would suggest the Southeastern Dominion. I think it's sufficiently threatening without suggesting we're starting a rebellion or anything. For the same reasons I suggest the title of Chancellor for the Governor.

     Ah, but that's the beauty of calling it an Empire. We can give some inattentive bureaucrats heartburn over what they incorrectly perceive as a desire for conquest.

ok, with a few changes how does this look?
and I agree with PiT, as the amendment clearly states,in slightly different words, we couldn't care less what federal bureaucrats think of it, as we are doing nothing illegal.
(I italicized the changes)

When I hear "Dominion" I tend to think "British Commonwealth" which isn't exactly the definition of Evil.

So are we going to put the bill to vote?

     That actually reminds me, what is the process for a region changing its name? We may need the federal government to do something, because the names have an official federal role. Remember the labelled map the SoFE includes in the voting booth.

Is there a process at all? if not then I believe are covered by Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2 which delegates powers not prohibited, to the regions. In which case we kindly ask they change the name on federal documents, maps, ect.

     The Pacific region changed its name from the Western region long ago. Maybe there exists some reference to how they did it. Or maybe we should just not make the change effective on the federal level, because "Imperial Dominion of the South(east)" would be a ridiculously long name to stick on that map.

Hmmm, we should look into that. and it could be shortened to I.D.S. on maps. I'm still fond of Southern Empire myself though, its short, evil, and to the point.

I'm fine with that either way. It's a fair compromise.

They should be required to conform to our standards - if it's difficult for them to stick our glory on a map then so be it! We shall not be stopped by such petty concerns.

Now you look at the legislation thread to see what the next bills up for consideration are of course. Currently there's an education bill and a suggestion of changing our flag to something more glorious. EDIT - actually, now that I think about it, we already did the education bill.

     The only non-evil bill in the queue is one to repeal the regional budget initiative, since that is completely unused, would be quite a pain, & unnecessary with the GM around to generate budgetary numbers.

Guys, let's face the facts.

Your cultural revolution cannot be completed as long as you don't rename your legislature to be "Imperial Senate".
