The Liberal Justice Party is a left-wing* party in the South founded by me, JustinTimeCuber. Although we tend to support most of the same goals as the Labor party, and I am personally a member of the Labor party, we are not a faction thereof; as Labor is a national party and the LJP is a regional party down South.

*see platform below

How do I become a member?

Liberal Justice Party

Chair
Peebs (L-NC)


Platform (more detail needed)
Quote
Support freedom of speech and freedom of expression.
This means allowing dissenting views from people on any side of any issue, as long as you aren't directly inciting violence. This also means the freedom to practice whatever religion you choose or none at all without fear of persecution, and the freedom to protest the government, assuming you do so peacefully.

Opposing discrimination and bigotry.
Even though we support the right to hold and express hateful or bigoted views, we will strongly oppose anyone who does so, of course in a non-violent manner. This includes fighting bigoted views against racial and ethnic minorities, LGBT+ people, women, religious minorities including the non-religious, and anyone else who might fear discrimination.

Universal healthcare.
The LJP believes that all human beings are entitled to basic healthcare needs as a birthright, and support enacting a single-payer system in the South.

Stop mass incarceration.
We should not have more people in jail than China, a country with more than four times our population and with a tendency for authoritarian governance. This means we should end mandatory minimum sentences and end the war on drugs.

Make the minimum wage a living wage.
Although it would be nice if everyone had a good-paying job, this isn't realistically the case. Some people are stuck in low-skill jobs that pay minimum wage, and that wage isn't enough to afford many basic necessities in most areas in the South right now. Ideally, we would have a living wage mandated at a local basis using the most precise data available. In some areas this could be $11 per hour, in some areas it could be $15.

Stop climate change and invest in renewable energy.
Climate change is a major worldwide problem, and the South should do what it can, along with the other regions and the rest of the world, to transfer away from fossil fuels and create high-paying clean energy jobs.

Expand workers' rights.
The LJP would like to see paid vacation and sick leave as well as maternity and paternity leave mandated by law.
Bylaws
Quote
Article 1 - Party
1. The official name of this party shall be the Liberal Justice Party of the South, abbreviated as LJP.
2. All registered members of the party shall be voting members, and may vote whenever the Party holds a vote, if they are registered when the vote is called.
3. The Party's official stances are found in the Liberal Justice Party Platform.
Article 2 - Leadership
1. The leader of the Party shall be referred to as the Chair.
2. Elections for Chair happen whenever the position is vacant, or after the current Chair has served for four months after his or her previous election to the position, or when two-thirds of voting members call for an election.
3. Elections for Chair shall be administered by the Dean, defined as whichever voting member has been a member of the Party for the longest. If the Dean has not posted more than four times on the Atlas Forum in the seven days before an election is to be called, any other voting member may administer the election unless one-third of voting members object.
4. There shall be a 24-hour nomination period followed by 48 hours for voting in elections for Chair.
 The winner shall immediately become Chair after being certified as such. Only voting members of the Party shall be eligible for nomination or to be Chair.

Glad to see areas where we can work in a bipartisan manner to achieve our goals and to promote societal progress.

New temporary bylaws until I get around to making real ones

I really like your platform, esp. free speech and making the minimum wage a living wage!

Fremont passed a very similar proposal into law a while back, essentially indexing the minimum wage to the cost of living by county. I'm glad to see other regions following our lead. Smiley

Order! Order! The Liberal Justice Party shall now make an endorsement for President of the Atlasian Republic! 48 hours for nominations. Why? 'Cause I said so!

Current voting members JTC, VPH, W. Midlander, and Tricks33 are eligible to make a nomination.

e: to clarify, nominations are open for President and Vice-President.

As West_Midlander has already publicly endorsed Clyde/Siren, I'm going to start a vote early.
Members have 48 hours to vote.

Nominating DFW/Goldwater so there's a choice

I tried to get Tricks33 to vote but he refused like a 3 year old throwing a tantrum, so I'm ending the vote.

The Liberal Justice Party voted unanimously, with three votes for each, and one not voting, to endorse Clyde1998 for President and Siren for Vice President!

Eternal Emperor (temporary position)
JustinTimeCuber
Not to interrupt the vote, but perhaps we should vote for a chair (and maybe a vice-chair, but we're so small anyway). Unless we want to wipe out the Eternal Emperorship with no replacement and be a non-hierarchical party. (We do need a leader to call votes to do things like issue endorsements)

Btw: JTC For LJP Chair
