I hereby resign from the Presidency of the Republic of Atlasia.
4  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The Goldwater White House - Goodbye on: September 05, 2017, 01:47:11 pm
It is with a heavy heart, that I must announce my resignation. Atlasia needs someone who can dedicate the time and energy necessary for running this great country, and unfortunately I don't believe I am the right person for that job. However, I am not simply abandoning you, instead I am leaving in the highly competent hands of my good friend and Vice President, fhtagn. I wish her the best of luck, and I trust that you will all follow her leadership.

Thank you, and goodbye.

X Former President Goldwater

That's all i wanted to say on this subject. And it portends big problems in the future. After all -  talks about splitting California into up to 6 states arose mostly because of existing political situation, and they may be a harbringers of what will come...
An initiative to divide California into 3 states has been submitted for review by the Attorney General. It is much simpler than the 6 California proposal, and would simply give California's legislative consent to be divided into three states (when Kentucky, Maine, and West Virginia became states, Virginia, Massachusetts, and Virginia legislatures gave consent).

Virginia had given consent for the formation of Kentucky while the Constitution was being ratified. The Continental Congress decided not to act while the Constitution was pending. When Maine split off, a very large share of the population was in Maine, and one might have even conceived that a majority of the population would be in Maine. Consent for formation of West Virginia was given by the remnant of the legislature that was meeting in Wheeling. After West Virginia became a state, the Virginia legislature was dormant.

The three proposed states are:

California: Los Angeles to Monterey + San Benito.

Northern California: Everything else north of Merced/Mariposa, except Mono.

Southern California: Everything else south of Fresno/Madera, including Mono.



I misread "San Benito" as "San Bernardino", and was very confused for a moment. Tongue

9  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Trump's response to Harvey vs. Bush's response to Katrina on: September 02, 2017, 10:12:56 am
Honestly, I don't remember Katrina well enough to recall how much Bush screwed it up, while  Harvey is going on right now, so I'm not sure I can answer this objectively.

Dictatorship in the Soviet Union meant police breaking down your door and sending you to a prison camp in Siberia for 10 years for rumors that you said something objectionable. Leftism in San Francisco means you get dirty looks if you were a MAGA cap in public and you don't have enough power to get elected officials who agree with you. Not really the same.

I lived in the Soviet Union for almost 35 years since my birth. Who of us knows life there better?)))))

I'm sure you know it very well, and the analogy is still very hard to sustain.

Not so hard. Soviet Union (Brezhnev's, not Stalin's) is what strongly one-party areas like Bay Area (or Texas, Alabama, Oklahoma - you choose) may become in 20-25 years, if polarization will continue. Where only one point of view is respected and even tolerated... It's a warning about what must be avoided in any case...

So, what's the solution? Force people in the Bay Area to become more conservative? Force more conservatives to move to the bat area? Huh
12  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The Goldwater White House - Japan, Article 9 on: August 31, 2017, 10:39:20 am
It has come to my attention that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is interested in repealing Article 9 from their constitution, and wants to know my thoughts on the matter. I would just like to say that I fully support Japan and their right to defend themselves, so if they wish to go through with this they will have my administration's full support.

My apologies, I seem to have become delusional due to some alternative fiction I got caught up in last night. My thoughts are with the Florida victims and their families.

Yes. Just don't say who they are, or you'll get your posts deleted for personal attacks.
So, we aren't allowed to call you out?

20  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What political party would these Founding Fathers be a part of today? on: August 30, 2017, 12:02:36 pm
None, because they'd be disgusted at the state of party politics today (sane, normal)

They, um, made party politics.

Not with the intention for it to become a two party system with no other alternative. Many of them wouldn't even want to keep the constitution in its current form.

Didn't the hatred of a two party system mostly come from George Washington?

The devastation cause to the Houston area by the recent hurricane is heartbreaking, and my thoughts go out to everyone involved and their families.

Every white person has a Cherokee princess great grandma.

In my case it's a Choctaw great great grandfather, but point taken. Tongue

White, unless my 1/16th Choctaw makes me count as "mixed".
