I do, but I think it would in the best interests of the Party if I were to stand aside.

I'm running for Chair then. Any other candidates?
Also, I would like to see Clarence as Vice-Chair, Simfan as Northeast Chair, ZuWo as Mideast chair, Master Sanders as IDS Chair, realisticidealist as Pacific chair.

Shall we have a vote on the Chair of the Party? Pingvin is the only interested candidate.

I think it's about time for the party to vote on the platform, the bylaws and the Chair/Vice Chair. Regarding the bylaws, here's the bylaws TJ drafted for the "Right to Life Caucus":

We should amend these bylaws to a certain extent, but I think it serves as a good model for our party bylaws.

Here's a suggestion for our party bylaws (I removed the "honorary member" clauses from the draft and replaced the term "caucus" by "party"):

I have no formal authority to do that, but since the Whig Party should finally get a clear structure, I hereby call for a vote of the Chair and Vice Chair as well as the bylaws. If someone disagrees with my semi-legal activity, please complain. Wink I suggest the vote shall last for 5 days.

Hey bud, do me a favor and either check in with the legislature or resign.  Or at the very least respond to your PMs.

Congrats, Pingvin. I am optimistic that despite your election our party is not going to plunge into fascism. Wink

I suggest we proceed now with a debate and, eventually, a vote on the party's platform.

I still object to the use of the term multilateralism- and I would like to propose the following line...

-That the military and its traditions are a fundamental aspect of our heritage and national identity

I think it might be problematic, if it implicitly rules out cutting the military to a smaller level. If we support small government the military should be cut as well.
At least we should agree on a defence policy first.
Maybe our respect could be directly connected to our veterans policy?

If Atlasia is supposed to be a virtual US this might be problematic but how about:
"We recognize the Judeo-Christian tradition as the primary moral foundation of our society and the positive role of religion should be acknowledged and respected by the government".

Where does the Whigs stand on climate change and alternative energy? I hope we are relatively progressive on this issue (otherwise I am in the wrong party Smiley ).
