The Incorporated NationStates of NewTexas wrote:On one hand, we are not overly-fond of the original and would not mind seeing it go, yet on the other hand, we worry that a replacement may be significantly worse.

Just to clarify (and exacerbate the mess of puppets...) not only do we have no plans for a replacement, but we highly doubt a replacement would even be ruled legal. We're amazed this one was allowed to pass in the first place. There has been no discussion of a replacement on the forums, and no obvious appetite for such from anyone.

We will of course respect whichever way Texas votes and thank you for permitting us the opportunity to present our case.

**** 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:
"Commend Luna Amore
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.

Category: Commendation Nominee: Luna Amore Proposed by: Ramaeus

Description: The Security Council,

Affirming the Security Council's dedication to"...

<see page=sc for full text>

WooHootie! The Security Council is out to Commend Luna Amore andgain and, if you rememebr from the last time they were commended, they are a nation with a presence in Texas. We have known Luna Amore, through their Texas puppet, [Sole Amore], for over 9 years now. They have always been very nice and quite helpful to both us and Texas on numerous occasions. For example, when we lost all our endorsements in December, 2012, Luna was one of the first nations to drop everything and rush to Texas aid without even being asked. They even assisted in gathering endorsements for us in a very short period so that we would not lose our Delegate continous service record (so much for that). Once again, all unasked. That right there is enough for us to support a commendation. However, the author of this resolution, ironically enough, also the athor of the repeal of Luna's earlier commendation, has plenty of other good things to say about Luna Amore. Apparently they have done some good things in Osiris. We are please to say, 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 -- Condemn The New Inquisition -- which was defeated after gaining only 34.16% 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 3 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 0 FOR and 2 AGAINST and 1 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were almost unanimous.

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 Wednesday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00pm Texas Time on Thursday the 26th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 6322 Votes AGAINST: 820

**** New WA Resolution Notification *****

There is currently a new General Assembly Resolution at vote. When expressing your opinion, please note for which Resolution. And remember Texans, your individual vote does count!

The new Resolution is called:
"Repeal "Nuclear Arms Possession Act"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.

Category: Repeal Resolution: GA#10 Proposed by: Chester pearson

Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #10: Nuclear Arms Possession Act (Category: International Security; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out"...

<see page=ga for full text>

Greaaat (NOT), a new Resolution! The bleeding-heart peaceniks want to take away our WA-given right to own and use nuclear weapons! Texans have felt very strongly about this issue over the years. There has been the original Resolution and three prior Repeal attempts. Not once have Texans voted to let the non-WA nations of The World have nuclear weapons and the WA member nations not have them too. That is not to say we could not have them before, but the Resolution guaranteed that we could. This was in stark contrast to the old UN days when they were banned. And this Resolution proposes to remove that guarantee. It will not outlaw them, but it certainly opens the door for some to make moves in that direction. This does not bode well for our future nuclear arms possession capabilities. 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. Needless to say, 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 down on the last GA vote -- Repeal "On Genetically Modified Foods" -- which was passed after gaining 85.87% 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 3 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 0 FOR and 2 AGAINST and 1 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were totally split. We exercised our delegatory tie-breaking power by voting For.

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.
