**** 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:
"Liberate Kingdom of Ireland
A resolution to strike down Delegate-imposed barriers to free entry in a region.

Category: Liberation Nominee (region): Kingdom of Ireland Proposed by: Grezantime

The World Assembly,

Noting the region of Kingdom of Ireland's"...

<see the Security Council for full text and to vote>

Ok, we have a liberation. You know the drill. Oh yeah, invaders suck! 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 down on the last SC vote -- Repeal: "Liberate Eternal Scholars" -- which was defeated after gaining only 46.7% 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 0 FOR and 4 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were unanimous! Yay!

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 Thursday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00pm Texas Time on Friday the 9th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 8727 Votes AGAINST: 3493

The Republic of Sao Paulo wrote:I do not think it's important for a delegate to have executive powers exactly to avoid the danger of the invaders. The main objective of this position is to represent a region in the World Assembly. The only thing I ask myself is: How many consecutive times can a US president be elected again? The 10000 Islands have a different delegate from time to time. Texas is doing very well I do not question that. It's just a debate in time of elections. This is very exciting.

As a 10000 Islands member, I feel it's my duty to mention we change delegate every six months. However, a previous delegate can run as many times as they want (just not in consecutive terms).

**** 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:
"Compliance Commission
A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.

Category: International Security Strength: Mild Proposed by: Imperium Anglorum

Concerned that nations are unwilling to prosecute violators of World Assembly legislation"...

<see the General Assembly for full text and to vote>

Oh great, just great! The General Assembly wants a Compliance Commission now? Can you say Spanish Inquisition? NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition!(dun, dun, dun). And, now the WA wants to bring it right out in the open, complete with offices in your nation informing your populace of the Mandates of the World Assembly. Fortunately, the new Commission does not have peacekeeping powers like a previous attempt at something like this. Nor do they have powers to compel you (sounds a little witchy to us) or sue you. However, they are "a truth-seeking commission" (read: spies). Is this an intelligence test one? 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 was way down on the last GA vote -- Rights of the Quarantined -- which was passed after gaining 76.1% 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 2 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 0 FOR and 2 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were unanimous! Yay!

The Brazilian generals usually say that they only want the war who has never been in one. My condolences to you.

My main nation is in the 10000 Islands but if you will allow me I will manifest my vote. The basic principle of logic is: More police and military budget can benefit international security? If the answer is yes the vote is for. If the answer is no the vote is against. I would love to discuss variables that are not exposed in the proposal, but if they are not there it does not have what I discuss. That is why my vote is very simple. For!

Currently:

For: 8,073 (69.7%)
Against: 3,511 (30.3%)
