Nah I don't think we need one, why would we?

We definitely need one to keep people like yourself in check.

This is a really good Constitution and it has humbled my writing ability.

Hmm.... How do we get the constitution ratified though... I certainly didn't specify, and from what I can tell, we currently don't have a clear voting system implemented....

Let’s have an emergency vote of the people! Everyone’s vote who is, as of this post, registered, counts for 1. All in favor? VOTE: yea

Also I suggest an amendment or law limiting the number of laws in debate at a time, for simplicity’ Sake. Also maybe a dedicated voting day? And an economy based on win/lost Mafia games, or posts, or something like that.

The Senate will jointly be responsible for that. That said, we could make an amendment after the ratification to make that explicit. The Senate decides how many bills are in debate at a time.

Presidents should be elected using... Simpson-Kramer method (which is a Condorcet method), just to throw things around.

Cordorcet takes forever to figure out, even with very few candidates.

Unless you know of a program that can do it for you.

I do college level calc and my brain is still going “wat.” We use a different voting method.

I have a couple of early sugestions for laws/amendments:

1) Change the presidential term to be the same length or twice the length of the senatorial terms. This way we can align it and won't have election days all over the place.

2) Make the senatorial terms longer, maybe a week. 3 days isn't a lot of time to get things done. If we're going to do this, probably keep the presidential term at a week as well.

Also some questions:

1) If by chance no one votes in an election, will the government stay in office?

2) Can people running for office also vote (particularly for themselves)?

3) Is everyone who posts here included in the voter count? Example: Jumble posted but didn't try to register, vote, or make a proposal (yet). Would he be part of a required majority?

Redacted my vote because I'd prefer clarification before finalizing it.

1) I could change president term to 6 days.
2) Nah, we need fresh voices in government on a regular basis.
——
1) Sure.
2) Yes.
3) If they post something substantial, under this constitution, yes, they would be a voter. Especially with Porkens here trying to act like a dictator.

I remember that.
Also, I move we have an emergency session between all members in regards to Porkens. We need to do something about him, but I’m not sure what.
And Ircher, if you could PM me a copy of that constitution? Thanks.

While I believe in Holy Scripture, involving the state in religion is a bad idea:

That should be enough as long as Holy Scriptures doesn't get 3 more votes, and as long as *cough* we agree that everyone contributing here is a legit voter *cough*.

Everyone running for office should make it clear that they are so that we don't have to include the entire thread in Borda Count voting.

I, for one, plan to run for Senate if this passes.
