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.

I'll probably join, but the name "Whig Party" is terrible.

Why? It's a kickass name!

Why?  Old F***** Badasses of all sorts (and lots of war heroes) were members of the real one; Zachary Taylor, Winfield Scott, Bob Dole, Strom Thurmond, Ronald Reagan; theres so many kick-ass motherf****ers to choose from!

By "real one", am I to assume you're including the Republican party? (doubtlessly, Bob Dole would've been in the Whig party were it alive today. Why? I dunno. He just seems that way. RR and ST are more questionable) But yes, there were some badasses in it back in those days. I'd love to see a Zachary Taylor lives scenario where he marches right into the South and kicks ass.

Right now, Communitarian. The name has not yet been changed.

Bah. Whatever, I shall still be registering with this party, whatever its name is (within reason).

Should there be a wiki page put up? Being the egotist that I am, I update my atlas wiki in order to account for my more recent return to the Assembly and for today's party change. Should there be a page that "Communitarian Party of Atlasia" can link to?

Also, there's a party color discussion going on. Sky Blue is being fought for it looks like, forest and light green are taken, and there's a socialist party which'll probably get red or orange or something. Ideas?

I think we ought to have conversations about elections... aren't they February 9?

For the Presidency, I think endorsing ZuWo is the obvious choice. He's a member, he's already a candidate, and he's got a running-mate that can appeal to people outside the party base.

I have no real personal or political opposition to MOPolitico, so I'm good.

Was the assembly of a wiki page discussed in full?

I hope he joins! And a warmest welcome to realisticidealist, our first Pacific member! We'll be the largest in no time!

Cathcon: I did make one up, any comments?

Thank you. It looks quite nice.

Does one have to be a morally virtuous person on issues unrelated to shooting the enemy, human rights, and nation building to be allowed into the armed services?

There was a time in American history where these matters were far more important than building other people's nations.

I'm talking in the hypothetical. As long as a gay member of the military doesn't start hitting on another military member, and as long as other certain deeds go undone while on active duty, I don't see a problem with it.

Clarence was Governor? And he banned automobiles? That's news to me.

Might be talking about oakvale maybe? No idea. I'd like to get this cleared up though. I wanna know who banned automobiles!
