To reduce confusion I am going to refer to the party as the "Whig-Communitarian Party" pending a final decision.

To be honest, I didn't even realize we were all disolving parties, and I'm a bit confused.  But this group looks cool and they've got a neat logo, so what heck... I'll join.

SimFan: Your hopes are realized. We need so-cons who also think it wise to address fiscal issues from a small government reform minded perspective.

Here's something small I came up with for the possible structure of this party. If you didn't notice, it's pretty much a page from the RPP book. Wink

Personally, while it's nice to have a title (Believe me, I've been there myself) I'm not too big on having a bunch of positions when you could easily consolidate them. This would allow us to maintain a solid, central structure while also being able to maintain strong blocs in each region, IMO.

I'm open to suggestions, this is just a rough draft. It'd be up to the party on whether or not regional chairmen should be elected or appointed.

I believe Chair and Vice Chair should have to face election rather then approval... look at how many bad judges are thrown out each year by that practice- not enough

I feel like they're synonymous- we vote regularly, as if it was another term.

Votes of approvals make it harder to dump incumbents... I don't care much but that is a side effect

I understand your argument - it is more difficult. My main reason for including it is this - Party Chairman and Vice Chairman are crucial positions, and we need solid, consistent people in both positions. Having simple elections for it brings politics into it, and as we all know, sometimes the most popular person is elected, not the person who does the best job. This would just ensure that the Chair and Vice Chair are voted on based on their merits and how well they've done.

If the party wants to take a different route, though, I accept whatever decision is made. Smiley

I agree with Tmthforu on this. Having elections for party chair often would lead to some sort of musical chairs effect and get in the way if we have a good chairman. Having an approval vote makes more sense for this position in my opinion.

Chairman-wise, I sympathize with both viewpoints, but I do think it's important to have a degree of constancy.
