Once this has the thumbs-up from Mike, which I'm sure it will, we will move on to formally establish the government. If anybody has questions or concerns, now is the time to speak your mind!
Sounds good to me.
In memoriam. More than 50 million American children have been killed by their parents and doctors -- denied their opportunities to make friends, receive educations, have careers, meet spouses, and start families of their own -- since the U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade on this day in 1973.
Wednesday is the anniversary of the Canadian Supreme Court tragedy R v Morgentaler .
Looks fantastic! :)
Member states of Westphalia, it is my distinct honor to announce the formal founding of the revived Westphalian Empire!
As incumbent WA Delegate, I will now officially assume the position of Chancellor. Over the next few days, I will be appointing member states, who are interested, to the Imperial Cabinet and the Westphalian High Command. In addition, His Majesty will be appointing at least 1 judge to sit on the Aulic Council, depending on the number of member states interested.
Should you desire to serve in the ranks of the government or military, don't hesitate to telegram me or, in the case that you wish to be a member of the Aulic Council, the Emperor. Considering the low population of Westphalia at the moment, your chances of being selected to serve are high.
That's all for now, welcome to the new world ladies and gentlemen! I look forward to serving with you and taking part in future RPs!
I protest the closing of the Right to Life embassy.
I advocate it: They posted propaganda on our RMB, they pay the price for it.
Your protest is noted. Nonetheless, the embassy will be withdrawn.
I'll make it no secret I disagree with their position on abortion, however that is not why I am closing our embassy. For one reason, as has been pointed out, they posted propaganda. Secondly, and the main reason, abortion is a highly controversial topic and I wish to remain politically neutral on the subject as a region.
Half of our embassies are with political regions.
But none as controversial as abortion. I simply don't want the government to take a stance on the subject. I would establish an embassy with a pro-choice region but again, I want neutrality on the subject.
