I demand that the Articles of Impeachment that have been introduced against both Vice President Nix and Attorney General Al be removed from the Senate queue. These are frivolous pieces of legislation with no real merit.

It is the constitutional right of the actual Senators to offer these resolutions.

Last I checked, I was an actual Senator, not a disgraced failure currently indicted for treason.

You are not an actual Senator, unless you resign your tenure as Governor and win election or appointment by your successor to a vacant senate seat.

And you're not a game moderator, you just play one in a pretend internet republic

Well, technically, you're not a governor or senator, nor am I an a legislative election.

But it is a fact that DKrol is the game moderator in Atlasia, and it is a fact, unfortunately, that you're a governor in Atlasia (although you might have technically revoked that with your revolution) but it's not a fact that you're a senator in Atlasia, nor is it one that Yankee is a "disgraced failure"--the charges brought against him are the most politically-motivated stuff I've ever seen.

Now, this thread has been derailed. It's for official legislation introduction. I simply wanted to point out that Mr. TNF's existentialism is silly.

I object to this bill coming to the floor as well, as it is a blatant slander upon myself.

2015 Amnesty Resolution

The Senate of the Republic of Atlasia, wishing to contribute to the process of achieving a national recociliation, and to help healing the woulds that are still scaring this great Union of ours, is respectfully asking the President to use his constitutional powers and:
1. Commute sentences imposed upon those convicted for their action during the Atlasian Civil War of 2014 to time served.
2. Grant preemptively a full pardon for all crimes that might have been committed during the Pacific Crisis.

In the light of a recent rebelion, Snowstalker's banning, Turkisblau's deregistration and Ebowed being pardonj by Simfan (with the status of his federal prosecution being unclear), I'd like to wirthdraw this resolution.

I hereby manifest my intention to call a Constitutional Convention to amend the current Constitution.



There isn't need for a resolution. When at least other 5 Senators will have seconded this, I'll open a thread in which we'll discuss and determine the rules for a Constitutional Convention.

It's no longer necessary, considered that the petition reached enough signatures.

I'm withdrawing the motion.

I call for this being treated as emergency legislation, so we can show our friends in the other game there is no reason to be suspicious or hostile toward us

Not a fan of this overly legalistic setup, but I motion for the expulsion of Cassius and New Canadaland from the Senate for missing over two weeks without any indication as to why.
