YeeHaw! Save The Cheerleader! Um, Children! Um, both, all! Yes, this one is about preventing child abuse as the name implies. We thought we already had one of these. We suspect it must have been repealed leaving you with only local laws. So, your question is do you want the WA to lay the minimal groundwork for your nation's child abuse prevention plan or do you want to do it all? We were with the author until he got to the "materials without artistic merit" part. That is not to say we want kiddie pr0n or anything remotely like that, but judging what is "art" and what is not is a slippery slope and we are not really sure that can of worms should be opened in this Resolution. We would have been fine with it if that was not in there. Regrettably, we are going to have to pass on this and take our chances with our own laws. 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 rate was up a little on the last GA vote [On Multilateral Trade Talks], which passed narrowly after gaining 55.32% 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 7 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 6 FOR and 1 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were almost unanimous.

NewTexas is open to suggestions on how we should vote on this Resolution to most accurately reflect opinion of the populace. All comments are welcome from all nations, both WA Members as well as those who are not. *As always, the WA Delegate vote will be based on publicly-expressed popular opinion.*

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!
