Gay Marriage has been legal in Atlasia for some time now, so trying to outlaw it would be a bit of a political reach IMO (and that's quite an understatement). To be honest, I think you ought to delete that entire line from the platform since it doesn't actually say anything coherent in the first place.

In the same light, I don't see why you would raise the issue of the death penalty because it has also been illegal in Atlasia for a long time. There is no political will to legalize it, either. Taking stands on political non-issues isn't a great way to attract people to a party; it only pushes away those who marginally agree.

I agree with TJ's sentiments on gay marriage... not only from a practicality view for from ideology also

I might join if I get involved in the game.

Great party idea, though.

If they are non-issues, then they can be left out.

What do you mean by "tradition must be considered", then?

We respect the traditional family. That's pretty much it. I'd like to see some more sign-ups so we can get a convention to hammer out a platform.

I didn't really get involved with much before, just voting for RPP candidates occasionally. I'm going to join you guys here and try to get more involved this time!

I can support that policy though I would be on the hawk side... I  thing the Whig Party would be a better name... Communitarian sounds a bit strange

Too close to "communist", huh? Wink

I don't care about the name of that party at all. I just want to join a conservative party, and I like the platform Simfan has proposed.

If you do decide to join, you can always push to have it renamed the 'Populist Party' or something to that effect.

-That gay and lesbian Atlasians are the equals of their heterosexual counterparts, but tradition must be considered


Bullsh-t
Take that last part out, and this becomes very tempting for me.

I heard the suggestion of "Whig" party mentioned. Sounds much better than communitarian. When I hear "Communitarian", I imagine some nice cozy little welfare state somewhere in Europe, very small and very insignificant and with a decidedly leftist tilt. My mental image for "Whig" is Henry Clay or Abe Lincoln wading through the mud stoidly in Kentucky or something, charging boldly and ruggedly ahead in the wilderness, fighting for internal improvements and other stuff. Whig is much better.

Seeing as the RPP is dissolving, I'll put this on my list of parties I'm consider joining.

As the left-communitarian chairman of another new party (the Social Democratic Union (name subject to change) out of the old JCP), I just want to say that although this party has a somewhat more right-communitarian bent than I'd be comfortable with joining even if I were not the party chairman of another one, I think it's a great idea and I wish you the best of luck and hope we can work well together.

Communitarianism is an ideology that stresses the importance of the community as an organic social unit, and advocates moral values and tradition.

Parties arent named after their ideology usuually or we would have the Conservative and Liberal parties, not the Republican and Democratic parties. A Whig Party could have a communitarian ideology

I'd say we should wait for more members to join the party before we hold a convention - if there are more people willing to join this party.

ZuWo I read in another post that the Liberal Party is very structured thus members are flocking their way... maybe if we get organized we can get more members. You are right that there may be a ceiling to how many folks theres willing to join our conservative party

Love this logo Simfan! I have tried to make logos for my campaign on logovictory.com and they do not turn out as well as this. I propose we move to convention and members can join and be eligible at once to vote
