Hello friends, today I'm starting a write-in campaign for Senate. I will consider implementing parts of Game reform. I stand with the worker and will vote for legislation that improves the lives of working-class people.

I would've given you a high preference had I known about your candidacy before. Sad

I think you and everyone else on my ballot could all make good Senators! Smiley Hopefully we get an exciting contest.

Good luck, Snowy Seatown! Let the Crazy Labor Senatorial Double-Win commence!

But really, you're only just starting your campaign? The election begins tomorrow today.

Game Reform: I will propose a few changes.
1) I will introduce bills that will offer Atlasia's stance on issues discussed in Forum Community.  Matters concerning certain posters will not be discusses, because we are not a judicial body. They will be obviously non-binding but we will attempt to get some power.  There won't be a direct democracy with this one, the representatives will be responsible.
2) We will attempt to convince Dave to allow Atlasia hold binding elections on moderator positions, and recall power.
3) We will work on our image to the other posters on Atlas, but not players in Atlasia. I support creation of the palace where Opebo becomes the monarch and Jmfcst is the prince. They will be responsible for the image and promotion of the game and for creating of image to foreign countries(other sub-forums on Atlas).  This will hopefully increase participation in the game. The monarch's decisions will be non-binding and subject to change by elected bodies and/or violent overthrow by the populace.
4) I will consider proposal's on relating Atlasia to current events.
TL;DR: More power to Atlasian poster, more participation!

On Copyright law & recent events- recently we saw destruction of a huge resource, megaupload which in my opinion is a valuable library of resources that was destroyed. If I'm elected to Senate I pledge to introduce a bill that creates fund to start a similar service that will be run independently(in case Atlasia's government becomes authoritative) with hosting in several countries that will unlikely be shutdown at the same time.

Well it looks like I have won. Unfortunately I can't say the same about my other labor friends.
First order of business will be introduction of game reform to Parliament.

I will be take the oath soon after homelycooking settles the election irregularities and expect an official announcement.

You should wait until the next term begins at noon EST on the first Friday in May to take the oath. We have a lame-duck period until then.

I don't think National Muffin act is necessary.



Anyway I should reveal my proposal for the first thing I plan to do once I am sworn in. I will  introduce a bill where we create a parliament and the office of prime-minister and abolish senate & presidency. Regional governments and other constitutional powers will not change unless directly affected by this change, and the procedure will remain the same.
The basics:
1. There will be always an odd number of MPs.
2.  The MPs are free to form coalitions when voting for the prime minister, and majority can always vote to dissolve the parliament and call a new election. The prime minister does not have to be a member of parliament in order to facilitate coalition forming and compromise, and even potentially passage of laws by opposition aligned with a part of the ruling coalition.
3. MPs will be elected using Proportional representation.
4. The number of seats is determined by the number of voters in the last election starting with one voter for the first seat, two for the second, three for the third, n for the nth seat, except that there can never be less than 11.  This means there has to be 91 voters for us to get 12th and 13th seat in the Parliament.
5. A new election happens every 3 months, or after a vote of now confidence.
6. The parties have to set an election date 1 to 2 weeks after after a vote of no confidence.
I won't introduce this bill if there is an overwhelmingly negative reaction, as it takes quite a bit of work to amend all the necessary parts of the constitution.
The reason I am going to introduce this is game reform, I believe this system will be more engaging and fun since we have a new aspects to the game: coalition forming, one-issue parties, and regional parties.

I admire your creativity and your desire to implement game reform.  However, I must tell you in all honesty, you will never, ever get this to fly.  This is the US Election Atlas forum, and we are mostly Americans here.  Attempts to re-write our system of government in Atlasia, to something more resembling the British model, have been and will be met with stiff opposition.  I suggest you approach the idea of game reform from a different angle.

Unless Tweed stages a violent overthrow, there won't be any major changes to the system. It's worked fine IRL for 235 years (mostly) running.
