International Democratic Union Regional Message Board
I don't think it's perfect, but I'm voting For because I want it to pass.
Also against. It got rushed into the queue without fixing its mistakes, which is a shame considering the well thought out premise.
Count me as in support of revving the drafting service, too. I really should spend more time in our forum, especially as it's one of the few bits of NS that I can still access from work during my lunch-hour.
Now, the election: Is Lumeau running for a second consecutive term? Are there any other candidates.
Unfortunately I've been too busy to RP yet in the Winter Olympics, but TDSR I've just read & really enjoyed your post about your nation's figure skaters being Ursine-influenced.
Thanks, glad you enjoyed it.

"Hrarroom!" ( = “Greetings”), and a hearty "Welcome to the IDU", for The Constitutional Republic of Westerwelle.
(The name looks familiar: Have you been here before?)

Now, re the Delegateship _
As nobody else has spoken on this matter, should I presume that everybody’s okay with letting Lumeau have a second term in office even though they haven’t said that they want one (and, in fact, have now been inactive for the last 10 days)? I’d volunteer myself, but honestly have reason to suspect that I wouldn’t have enough time available to do the job properly.
And what do you think about the ‘Refactoring’ of nation’s economic stats that’s just taken place?
Personally, I suppose that it makes sense on the whole (and I can see why the calculator now assumes that the Bears’ general preference for minimal government over-rides their stated support for certain sectors, even though that isn’t how I RP them…), although I’m slightly irked that going from “no obvious [from income tax] central government spending on law-&-order, although it is one of the leader’s priorities” to simply “no obvious [from income tax] central government spending on law-&-order”, because of this change has resulted in such an apparent increase in Crime within both Bears Armed itself and this Mission… Then again, this recalculation entirely overlooks the Clan governments’ spending on this topic in Bears Armed, and the effects which that would have…
'For' the repeal that's currently at vote. The resolution being targeted has good intentions (and an 'international' aspect), but was too badly written and pushed through far too quickly.
In keeping with a little tradition I've done over the past few years, I'll be updating the forum theme to a new 2015 one sometime early February (possibly this weekend if I get around to it)!
Just a heads up.
Hello again, everyone! :)
Welcome back Malabra.
