"Ben wants to not give southerners a choice" Look, Ahab. Can we please stop this?
"even if YT hadn't introduced the bill, Ben would have tried to force through renaming it back to IDS, and been a lot less reasonable than YT on the issue
you don't know Ben and how he works
at least how it's currently planned, the southerners actually pick, not the chamber"
well, if we're going to speculate on my motives am I at least allowed to present what I planned to do?
or are we just going to assume, sans proof and condemn me while we're at it?
my original plan was to present the IDS bill to rename the south the IDS. Beyond that was up to the delegates. The reason I wasn't happy was that as a con amendment, there were other issues that needed to be considered. Issues that have pretty much been glossed over and aren't relevant at present since we're not doing that. I don't see how that counts as 'forcing the bill through' anymore so than any other bill to the delegates.
"It’s a policy, and if he can’t vote based on policy he shouldn’t be a delegate" ok ahab, can you please stop with this?
To the southern people
Also dude your bill you proposed as a modification isn’t giving people a choice
Considering the Governor would have to sign it and it would be a law
The people wouldn’t decide
Part 16473817263749391716 of Ben lying again
I've stated here that I'm fine with a ballot
are you going to be civil ahab?
But what you proposed wasn’t
Look I’ve got an idea I want to work on with the Speaker
And I think it’ll work out well
that's why I stated I was fine with a ballot
because that was the question at hand no?
What I want is the Speaker to open the floor up to the general
The people introduce their ideas
We close it after 24 hours
Then we pass a law allowing for a referendum to change the south’s name with a ranked choice election
The name that achieves 50.1% will be the new name
I think the three options are the majority options that have come up, Jefferson, the IDS and the South.
it seems to me that most people favor one of the three.
But it’s not democracy if we limit people’s choices now is it
I see no reason why a referendum between those three would be an issue
Which is why I want to open the floor up for public debate
To the general public I mean
we already have that in the thread that's been put up
there's a pretty good discussion in the thread, IMO
But it’s for members lol, what I’m proposing would be official
This way we have a clear cut way of doing things that has a specific timeline
And I hope Tim will agree with me on this
I see no need to reinvent the wheel when there's already a pretty good thread for public consultation on this issue
I think we can go ahead with the referendum between the three.
I’ll be voting no if you propose that, I think a clear time table is needed
