I would like to add for the benefit of members and observers that in reality, we should not be favoring one region over another. We want the same good things for citizens of all the regions.

I move that Dr. Cynic be our Vice-Presidential candidate, so we can spread the revolution of the people all the way to Nyman.

I personally am contemplating a run for At-Large Senator.

In case your party nominates a presidential ticket, would you be inclined to have a presidential and vice-presidential debate with the other candidates in the race (that is, me and Jbrase and Polnut/Tmth)?

Well, it looks like it's settled. We will be running an Earl / Dr. Cynic ticket!

I would be happy to participate in a debate with you.

That's in two months, right?

I would like to add for the benefit of members and observers that in reality, we should not be favoring one region over another. We want the same good things for citizens of all the regions.

This seems to be my point of view as well. We should want no special rights for some regions and not others. However, we could support certain regionalist movements if they fall in line with the doctrines of Washburnist socialism!

I'm happy to accept the spot as Vice Presidential nominee of the WSRP!

I'd also be glad to take part in a VP debate should the opportunity present itself.

I would also like to submit my proposed constitution up for debate:

I shall submit to the party the following constitution

Preamble

These changes can be assured only by the application of Washburnist socialism to government and the administration of public affairs.

The principles of Washburnist socialism can be defined as:

That the production and distribution of goods and services shall not ignore the social and individual needs of the people within a sustainable environment and economy.

The dignity and freedom of the individual in his or her social lives is a fundamental human right that must be enshrined further then the status quo. 

A commitment to protecting the environment, at all costs, for the enjoyment of further generations.

And, to ensure the well being and love of all people, to ensure the basic fundamentals of life for all people, no matter their circumstances. And, to ensure that all persons have the right to be productive members of society.

Article 1: Name


Name: The name of this political party shall be the “Washburnist Socialist Revolutionary Party”

Article 2: Membership

Membership within the party shall be open to any Atlasian citizen who undertakes to accept and abide by the constitution and principles of the Party and is registered as a member of the party with the  Registrar General of the Census Bureau.

He or she shall be solely charged with the responsibilities of ensuring that party matters are in order, and party rules are followed.

The comrade chairman or chairwoman shall be subject to a vote of confidence at each convention. If he or she does not secure a majority of votes, then an election for said position must be held. Also, if the comrade chairman or chairwoman shall resign or die, an election for his or her successor shall occur at the next convention.

Welcome to day 3 of the convention. I am excited at the prospects of having a presidential ticket in this upcoming election, and look forward to running with Dr. Cynic.  Together, we can revolutionize Atlasia!

But on to the matters of the day,

As founder of this party, it is clear that I am the first comrade chairman of the party. If a majority of party members oppose me leading the party for the next 2 months, please let your voices be heard in the next 24 hours.

Thank you, and have a pleasant day, delegates! Smiley

Alright, I am going to put this  up for a vote:

I'd like the party to take a positive attitude towards regionalist movements in the Mid-West and the South-East, while also taking an explicitly anti-Mid East stance.

'Long live the Revolutionof the people! Long live the never-ceasing course of history!'

Without any background on this resolution, I will have to abstain.

Even as a proud resident of the Midwest who is happy that it is being put forth as an example, I believe the WSRP should be a party of all regions for all people and even if those regions are not run especially as we want, there's no reason to disparage those citizens.

I vote nay.

Alright, it's the final day of the convention!

It's time to nominate locations for the next convention. I nominate Billings, Montana.

Anyone else care to nominate?

Billings wins!

We'll have it in Pittsburgh next time Smiley

And so, that concludes the inaugural Washburnist Socialist Revolutionary Party convention. I'd like to thank belgiansocialist and Dr. Cynic for making this convention successful.

I now turn our sights to the Presidential election in a few weeks. Dr. Cynic and I have our work cut out for us as we battle our corporatist opponents who favour the status quo, or worse yet, libertarianism. We will not settle for ideologies that continue to punish the working class and the middle class, the poor, and the down trodden! A vote for us, is a vote for the revolution of the people. A vote for us, is a vote for a new Atlasian utopia. Together, we can make this country great!

Good night, and long live the revolution!
