OK... I'm just going to put this out there. Siervicül, you're now both Senator & Governor, BenArd is Premier & serves on the Upper Cort. Is there anywhere /active/ in my home province I can get involved. I ran for Senate to become more involved at the Provincial-level as well and that opportunity is now gone. What motivation do I have to stay active in Provincial matters if opportunities to serve never pan out?
What do you mean by me being Governor? The Governor-General (i.e., cunstaval) of Maricopa is Ma la Mha, Count Thord. And as you note, BenArd is Premieir (and thus governor in the other sense). I assume you'll claim a seat in the Cleivi. Once the Cleivi convenes there should be a new election for Premieir. And it's worth noting that as appointee I don't get a full term in the Senäts--our seat will go up again in the next general election.
Thanks for getting back to me on this. I really do want to be more involved but I just feel like there isn't the interest overall. I wish I could put some of my life experience to work but I feel roadblocked at every turn.

I hope you don’t mind this intrusion from a resident of another province, but...
Please don’t be discouraged by a lack of electoral success in every instance. Seriously, you’re doing well for yourself. You’re an MC and involved in our military. These things take time, and the nature of elections is that sometimes you lose. I can testify to that in macronational politics. If I were you, I’d get involved with the Cleivi and hope for the best next time.
I’ve been involved long enough in Talossa to know that determination, competence, and diligence are rewarded eventually.

V: If one takes issue with the current Covenants - I would support a rewrite to clean them up.

V: But that said, this argument that if we adopted the new Org Law and the Covenants, it would be inorganic is lost when we consider that by adopting the new org law, we relinquish the shackles of the old Org Law.

Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: You have some good points. To be sure, the longevity and tradition of the OrgLaw make it (and us) stand out from other, similar, places. But your argument here in this thread basically boils down to "it's too cumbersome." And that's not true.
Feb 10, 2019 20:02:08 GMT -6
Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: The new proposal is just as cumbersome and complicated, except where it has omissions that will need to be remedied. Even leaving aside the fatal flaws, it's not an improvement in this way, except for the lack of "holes."
Feb 10, 2019 20:03:20 GMT -6
Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: Ultimately, the same amount of effort spent amending the current OrgLaw would have had equal or superior effect to coming up with a new system of government, plus it wouldn't have trashed the old one to which we swore an oath.

Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: And finally, the entire process is being performed by the legislative process as normal, which means it is part of that process. Elevating new supreme documents so easily should not be possible, since that is dangerous and ill-conceived.

V: Not really - in effect- we're amending the prior org law by repealing all aspects of it and passing adopting new sections. So yoi can keep your longevity.

Ian Plätschisch: Yeah, the whole reason we aren't calling it "The 2019 Organic Law" is because you convinced us not to
Feb 10, 2019 20:46:13 GMT -6
Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: So... if you agree with me, why the argument? Yes, we're doing it entirely within the frame of the current Organic Law, passing a massive amendment to install a new constitution in its shell. Good, I guess, although this is a weird conversation.
Feb 10, 2019 22:02:41 GMT -6
Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: I am comforted by the fact that this probably won't pass referendum, but why run in circles like the above? Let's just be straightforward.
