Perhaps we are just like the Big Tex After Dark look...

The phrase is from the movie/show "To be a Man".
hahaha (to be fair I cheated and looked up the phrase on google)
**** New WA Resolution Notification *****
There is currently a new General Assembly Resolution at vote. When expressing your opinion, please note which Resolution it is for. And remember Texans, your individual vote does count!
The new Resolution is called:
"Digital Network Defense
A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.
Category: International Security Strength: Mild Proposed by: Excidium Planetis
Description: The World Assembly,
Recognizing the importance of digital devices"...
<see the General Assembly for full text and to vote>
Oh we were so enjoying the break. Well, here is a new "no d'uh" piece of feelgood legislation. Cyberattacks bad, M'kay, whateves. NewTexas will go on record as FOR on this Resolution. This is only the opinion of NewTexas. We look forward to other Texans' opinions and comments on this Resolution. If good arguments to the contrary are made, we will reconsider our position.
The Texas response was flat on the last GA vote -- Repeal "Preventing Animal Abuse" -- which was passed after gaining 80.58% of the vote. As a reminder, all we are looking for is a simple 10% of Texans to say one way or another. We are a force for change in the WA. Every vote counts! There were 4 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 2 FOR and 2 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were totally split. We exercised our delegatory tie-breaking power by voting Against.
NewTexas has already voted on this Resolution in advance of publicly expressed opinions. We did this at the urging of many leaders in the World Assembly. As we have been saying for years, Texas is a force in the WA. Many feel that Texas can influence the overall vote if it votes first. There is an observed "lemming effect" that occurs during voting. Apparently a large number of votes are cast based on whichever side of the issue is leading when voters vote. Therefore, to get the most impact from our vote, we are now voting first. We will re-evaluate our original vote at midnight prior to the current vote. As always, we are open to suggestions on how we should vote on this Resolution to most accurately reflect opinion of the populace. Comments are welcome from all nations, both WA Members as well as those who are not. Please make your voice heard on the current issue either on this message board or on our offsite message board. But, by all means, please vote on the WA Page!
If you would like to take part in shaping the world you live in, please vote. Voting is a right and a privilege, please consider using it. And, if you are not a member of the World Assembly, we strongly encourage you to join.
All WA Member nations please vote. Please make your opinions known in Texas by 11:00pm Sunday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00am Texas Time on Monday the 4th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 3700 Votes AGAINST: 1707
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
