It's like you never left the region XD
Hey, Iím trying my best to say ďLorania shouldĒ instead of ďWe shouldĒ.
iím twying my hardwest. *sniffle*
Tai Pei coup when?
If you support my totally legit coup against the Loranian government, I will... uh...
I'll buy you a lot of Haribo's Starmix.
To be honest, Iím going to delete that dispatch, it wasnít my finest moment. I donít think grudges are right to be used and just create a rotten atmosphere in the region. If I kept the grudges and decided to use them properly then iíd have to spend days, or even weeks, writing grudges against every dodgy region on the site, which, to put it simple, doesnít look fun
Tai Peian national anthem after they get addicted to S C I E N C E .
Iím starting to get more interesting in implementing a citizens assembly like this with WA residents and those with a waiver. I feel that it could make a better and more appealing legislature. Iím leaning towards this idea more and more
I was under the impression that you as Foreign Secretary could rescind the Turkic Union grudge and remove the penultimate bullet point of the Embassy Policy at will.
[INSERT RANT ABOUT POSSIBLY BEING VINDICATED HERE] :P
Every addition to human knowledge is an addition to human power, and Tai Pei is about to make humanity much more powerful!
Accept no limits, science knows no bounds!
Iím still against having a bicameral system, as it will take far too long for bills to pass. Weíre already complaining about how long itíll take to pass a criminal code, so wouldnít you think it would take even longer with a bicameral system? This is why I prefer an elected unicameral system.
So you're talking about having a unicameral legislature including all citizens? Understood. However, I'm personally against that as well, for these reasons:
1. Inactivity and Apathy: Some Citizens may be too inactive to serve in the Legislature, and therefore with contribute very little and will decrease voter turnout.. Others may have no interest in regional politics, and therefore might not like being pinged all the time for a juty they didn't want, and will also decrease voter turnout.
2. Small Legislation: Many citizens won't want to bother with small scale amendments and changes, and would rather only large scale changes be brought to their attention (representative democracy).
3. Wording in Legislation: Some citizens may not understand the wording of Proposals, as it can be complex. This may lead to people voting on proposals, and not fully understanding what their voting on.
I understand your concerns and iíll write up my responses to that later when I have time to
Still hold my view of introducing referendums on constitutional amendments, rather than complete legislative reform. Also advocate the view of allowing citizens to debate in the HoC (but only when sponsored by an MP), as that would mean citizen involvement in the legislature.
I echo Ogliacia's comments on the issues of direct democracy/regionwide legislature.
1. So it's worse to have a majority of citizens vote (while some don't) than just the few people in the HoC? And pings are trivial matter, they don't make a noise, and only go in your notices, hardly something we have to take into account when making a new structure of government?
2. This may be true, but are all the citizens going to revolt if we ask them to vote on a small piece of legislature?
3. That's what the RMB is for, to help explain you bill and debate it.
My concern would be if we had lets say 30 citizens/members, and only 9/30 were truly active and engaged in the legislature, how would you go about setting a simple majority?
