With the current volatility, the Imperial Dominion of the South needs a party to represent its interests.  The United Imperial Front aims to do this.  United as one we are, in the face of federal meddling.  The plank of the party beyond that penultimate goal, is up to its members.

You hear that?  Southern boys, to the bureau!  Get a'regist'rin'!

Why do you want to establish a one-party system in your region for the sake of having a one-party system?

It isn't my region.  The IDS has a long, storied tradition, with a unique identity and values.  None of the "ideological" (in quotes because only one of the recently founded parties seems to have a coherent ideology) parties, which are crafted to be maximally competitive nationally, can ever truly represent this region.

I'm sure the Whigs/Communitarians can represent the South's interests well. You'd be a great fit for us!

Your logo looks like a gathering of communist immigrants. My idea would be to form an alliance with your group, so as you have autonomy in regional and senate matters, but have a good hand in Presidential elections with the advantage of being allied with a national party who would, in turn, owe the south.

I'm tired of all this fusion nonsense. The only person a good Southerner can trust is another good Southerner! It is the duty of the IDS to be completely self-sufficient from the interest of partisan politics, and thus the only choice for the Imperial people!

Heh, our logo looks like a gathering of hippy happy communist immigrants! As the CPA is composed of the regional branches, the Southern Communitarian Party would be totally be able to serve the interests of the south.

Welcome Jbrase to the UIF!  We are one member away from official party status!  Come on southerners, you know you want in.  All of the other parties are boring national parties, intent on "winning the game" like countries tend to blob across the map...

...yeah, if you don't play Paradox games, you probably don't get the reference.  No matter!  Join the Imperial Front, break the monotony!

Will you annex non-contiguous provinces? Because that'll make you an HP.

Lolno.  We're a regional party.  Our borders will be, by far, the cleanest.  I imagine you folk up north will be a balkanized mess. Tongue

I'd love if this party only allowed southern members, that'd be so kickass.

Better yet if you pulled a german CDU/CSU and formed an alliance with a party that allowed no southern members.

Also, I propose that we each create a personal list of  issues, rank them by importance, from:

"A"-very important
"B" somewhat important
"C"- not important

With the rule being, a maximum of 4 issues can be "very important", and a minimum of 2 are "not important"

This is just me brainstorming some ideas for how to go about writing our platform, feel free to respond/critique this. Smiley

Well first I suppose we should elect an interim chairman for the party to lead us through the early stuff. I nominate Yelnoc.

Because there are no by-laws yet to say otherwise, I also say that Yelnoc has 5 minutes from this being posted to decline before I open a vote on him being the chairman. Grin

Good ideas, PR (and yes, of course we would endorse a fellow party member).

Jbrase, if you insist. Tongue  It probably would be a good idea for me to "run the show" until we have working by-laws in place, just to prevent confusion.
