I have every intention (not saying I will) of maintaining an up-to-date and accurate list here of issues being discussed in the Hopper and how I intend to vote if if the legislation ends up making it to the clark. I encourage discussion and would love to hear the opinions of my constituents. If we do not agree, I will give my reasons why but am always open to my vote being changed. I will be updating to his as new legislation is introduced, hoppered, and clarked.
Because of the fluditiy of thought and how my opinion may be influence, this is how I intend to vote and now how I will necessarily vote. Furthermore, I will be using a red - for a down vote, a green + for an up vote, and a Ø when I'm indifferent and haven't made up my mind.

Re: The Somewhat/Independent Senate Amendment/Act - I have long believed that Senators should be completely free of partisan politics and I intend on voting PER on this bill. I understand the arguments against it concerning voter confusion and informability, but, I still feel Senators should be running on their own ticket and merit, without ANY LINKS back to a party, including endorsement. I think the cultural divide, again, is what separates us on this issue. In America, it seems, to me, that parties endorse all sorts of candidates all the time. This is not so much the case in Europe. When and where a position is supposed to be non-partisan, parties tend to steer clear of the discussion and debate so not to tarnish the water with partisan politics.
Re: The Talossan Translator's Corps Act - I, being one of the people in the Kingdom with little knowledge of the language, am inclined to follow the lead of those more in the know. I think you said something somewhere else to the same effect? So, if Iusti, Miestra, Hool, Cresti, et al, believe it to be worth a PER vote then I'll give it a PER in the Cosa.
Re: Everything else - I'm not sure how I'm going to vote on all the other bills, but, I think we are mostly shooting in the same direction on them.
