I would remove the GM from the line of succession (or at least put him further down), since I kind of see the GM as not really a political office but a sort of meta game position.

I agree with the President here, great act, but the Game Moderator is more of a forum affairs position and not a serious political office. (Or, at least, shouldn't be.)

I propose the following amendment, simply to remove the GM and re-number them.

The problem with free speech is that it’s hard, and self-censorship is the path of least resistance. But, once you learn to keep yourself from voicing unwelcome thoughts, you forget how to think them—how to think freely at all—and ideas perish at conception. Washiqur Rahman and Avijit Roy had more to fear than most of us, but they lived and died as free men.

Hi there!

I was making the Wiki page for this, when I noticed the piece of legislation amended was repealed: http://uselectionatlas.org/AFEWIKI/index.php/Line_of_Succession_%28Amendment%29_Act

Perhaps you meant to amend this? http://uselectionatlas.org/AFEWIKI/index.php/Line_of_Succession_%28Amendment_No_2%29_Act

Just looking for clarification, doesn't really make sense to me. Wouldn't we now have two active pieces of legislation regarding the line of succession?
