Btw, if you see that I've suppressed one of your posts, it was probably because the quote button is too close to the suppress button. It should be viewable now. If not, then let me know. The buttons are very annoying in the mobile version of NS since they get in the way while scrolling down.
I agree for the most part. The truth is that even democracies around the world are so different that sometimes it's hard to understand the system, you know? Here in Brazil, for example, the president is elected by direct vote of the population. In the United States the president is elected by indirect vote through delegates. Hillary got more votes from the people and lost the election. For us this is not very democratic, do you understand? But that does not mean that the process was not democratic.
The same thing happens here in the game between different regions. Many of them are democratic, but their system changes according to their number of nations, political ideology, etc. As founder of Texas NewTexas will always be the governor and head of state of the region. But there are more than 30 WA nations in the region, no one can or wants to be delegated? I agree that he does it very well and I also agree that would be a position available only to trusted people like you Richard, Studly Penguins, Amandil, Trecdom2 or others that I do not know. I think change can be interesting at times, you know? And as in the 10000 Islands BigTex could be delegated again, why not?
Ladies and gentlemen I think that's the way I can contribute in any way, by proposing debates, by discussing ideas. We are from countries and cultures so different that we can sometimes learn from each other.
hahahaha do not worry buddy, that's okay. ;)
Someone at Texas CHAT now? What is the best time to meet everyone there?
There is usually a regular chat session on Saturdays at Noon Central (UTC -6). That's also 1PM UTC-5/Eastern and 6PM UTC+/- 0/London Time. They'll be a post tomorrow morning about it (which there normally is) with a chat link. You probably won't see every Texan, but I know I'll be there, in fact, I'll probably take the time to field a few campaign questions about my run for Secretary of World Assembly Affairs (that is if anyone asks).
While I'm at it, my apologies for not making a campaign speech yet. I think I'll have one out in a little bit. Stuff just gets in the way sometimes.
Somebody please correct me here if I'm incorrect about any of it.
Sorry for not making this earlier. Things can just step in the way sometimes. Anyway, I'd like to thank those who have nominated me to become your next Secretary of World Assembly Affairs!!! I have been in Texas for years now, including serving a few Terms on our Texas Representative Council, which is a nice stepping stone to hold this office. Being a logical person, I understand that reading long text like this isn't something everybody does every day. As a result, I'm gonna keep this sweet, short, and to the point.
There are numerous reasons, in fact more than I can count, so I'm just going to bullet point them.
-No TV and No Beer has been very inactive. He hasn't logged in for 55 Days and counting. That actually means he'll Cease to Exist briefly if he doesn't log in sometime during this election cycle. That is very bad news. I don't believe Texas has had a cabinet member CTE in office before, and I'm not actually sure what would happen if this did occur. We can't have cabinet members who store themselves in vacation mode and log in to keep the nation alive. We need someone who is active.
-This change is long overdue. The Cabinet hasn't budged a bit since I joined. Not one has actually lost an election. I feel I am fit to take the spot of a inactive cabinet member, having been in this region for 2 1/2 years (roughly) and counting.
-It's change. The Texas Cabinet, at least somewhat, from what I have heard, They have been trying to get more people involved in regional government. Sure enough, not only would I be a fresh face in the cabinet, but I feel I can bring some new ideas to improve our fine region. Texas is already great, why not elect me and make it greater!
-No TV and No Beer qualifies for expulsion from the cabinet per article XVII of the Texas Constitution, which clearly states: 1. The Governor of Texas may dismiss any Cabinet or Texas Representative Council member for the following reasons:
a. Prolonged inactivity without warning (defined as 28 days on NationStates or the offsite forum)
b. Gross misconduct
c. Non-compliance with the Texas Constitution
d. The Cabinet member voluntarily moves out of the Region of Texas (for any reason other than military or diplomatic missions as approved by the Cabinet) and takes up residence in another region for a period of 5 consecutive days or a period of 10 days total out of any two-week period.
e. Ceasing to exist
f. The Cabinet member willfully chooses NOT to achieve WA status after being elected or appointed to the Texas Cabinet unless excused from doing so by the Governor.
No TV and No Beer qualifies for Cabinet Expulsion under reason A. It is unacceptable to have inactive cabinet members. Electing me goes a step in the right direction, as I am quite active. I don't answer issues oftenly, mainly because I've seen most of them by this point and I'm happy with my nations status.
-I'm active. I appear in the Texas Chat every Saturday, and I consistently make RMB posts.
-I have experience. I have been a member of the TRC previously. I have been on NationStates for 3 1/2 years, the majority of which has been spent in Texas. I've accumulated over 1,800 forum posts. I have a general understanding of the R/D game and how it works. I even go on a mission occasionally. I had involvement in the successful missions in Scotland and Christmas as a member of the United Defenders League.
Sorry for taking a unusual speech format, but I'm trying to keep this short. Don't forget to vote in this election. It is likely to be a crucial one within the history of our fine region.
*throws Cowboy hat up* Yeehaw!,
It's a long story, I will say that.
