Use this thread for any questions/comments about the Convention procedure or just random things.

Because there is a lot on the table here, I am going to lay out the following format for how I plan on running the Convention:

1. I will look for proposals of forms of government delegates want considered (i.e. parliamentarian, presidential, etc.).

2. I will bring these to a vote to gauge which form members are most interested in pursuing.

3. The winner of the poll will be the first form of government we attempt to form, from the ground up.

4. If this results in failure (hopefully not) we will vote on the remaining contenders and start over.

I support a parliamentary system with a lower house with universal membership, and an elected upper house.

This format seems sensible to me.

I second your supported system.

I've created a separate thread for proposals. Sorry things get caught up when I try starting it all when people are awake. Smiley

Sorry, I saw that and moved it over to there. I won't be awake much longer... don't you worry about that! (To quote a former Queensland Premier).
