**** 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 Hobbesistan"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Category: Repeal Resolution: SC#143 Proposed by: Funkadelia
Description: WA Security Council Resolution #143: Commend Hobbesistan shall be struck out"...
<see page=sc for full text>
Oh joy! A Repeal! Yay! When the original was implemented in May, 2014, Texans were either against it or didn't care by a vote of 0 for and 4 against and 3 abstentions. As a nation, we did not like it becuase they were a new region, becuase they seemed to be being commended for making forums and they had been in three different regions in their brief life showing no loyalty fo any of them. We just did not thnk any of thse behaviors were particularly commnedable singularly or as a whole. 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 A vote AGAINST this Resolution means you are in favor of the existing law and do not want it repealed.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 FOR on this Resolution. 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 SC vote -- Condemn Vandoosa -- which was defeated after gaining only 27.94% 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!
Note: 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.
All WA Member nations please vote. Please make your opinions known in Texas by 11:00pm Saturday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00am Texas Time on Sunday the 26th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 3295 Votes AGAINST: 1537
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!

I did some math, if I want 1000 posts in one year, I would need to post 2.87 posts per day. Not large!
Omaha Count: 9, now it is just a estimate.
********URGENT MESSAGE FROM THE LT. GOVERNOR********

This year's discussion starts towards the middle of page 4 and on to page 5.
Since we have banned cars, our police dept has received permission to form a mounted unit.
