**** New WA Resolution Notification *****
There is currently a new Security Council 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:
"Repeal "Commend Tiago Silva"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation
Category: Repeal Resolution: SC#43 Proposed by: Wallcreeper
Description: WA Security Council Resolution #43: Commend Tiago Silva shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
Argument: The Security Council,
Believing that nations and regions should be Commended"...
<see page=sc for full text>
Oh Boy, they want to take a Commendation away from the NS Flag Maker. Sheesh! When this came around in January, 2011, Texans were completely split with the vote running: 5-For and 5-Against. We didn't know what to make of it and punted to the for-side. We still don't know. The author of this repeal does not feel that the deed they were commended for was worthy of commendation. What a jackwagon. We are reluctant to repeal any commendation unless they do something heinous [See Repeal Sedge]. So we certainly do not think we should repeal a commendation just because someone doesn't think they were worthy in the first place. That is for the voters to decide aand they did. As a reminder, the issue here is the REPEAL of the existing law. A vote AGAINST this Resolution means you are in favor of the existing law and do not want it repealed. A vote FOR this Resolution means you want the law off the books. NewTexas will go on record as Against 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 rate was flat on the last SC vote [Condemn Lazzarania], which was handily defeated after gaining only 23.24% 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 7 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 0 FOR and 7 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were unanimous. Yay!
NewTexas is open to suggestions on how we should vote on this Resolution to most accurately reflect opinion of the populace. All comments are welcome from all nations, both WA Members as well as those who are not. *As always, the WA Delegate vote will be based on publicly-expressed popular opinion.*
