    Welcome, JoanK. Be sure to post at least 5 messages on the forums, then we can send you a personal message (PM) and sign you up for our social group.

    We are now a Major Party. This means that we can have our own primary elections for candidates. Of course, the aim is to have a consensus of candidacy issues, negotiated by the Central Committee.

    I now invite the Communist Party Members to join in the Third Communist Party Congress, to be held in Washington, 1480 AD. Banner to follow!

    I get what you're trying to do. I'm not sure why, but that doesn't matter.
    Supreme Court Rulings #1-3 already give Congress limited abilities to modify the constitution.
    I'm not going to allow anyone to have carte blanche on changing the rules, because if rule changes make the game unrunnable, then I'll be unable to run the game. (and I'd really like to finish one!)
    Nonetheless, this is America, the land of oppurtunity, so keep fighting for what you want and never let anyone tell you no!

    No.
    The constitution is very clear on the format requirements for proposed bills.
    I even highlighted it in blue.
    New bills must be in the format of a simple, straightforward, single sentence statement.
    As GM, I had several reasons for putting this rule into place, and you're not going to get around it.
    I encourage you to keep trying. But you're not going to get around it.
    Because I consider this one very important for the game.
    Or because I'm mean.
    Whichever answer you like better.

    Sparthage, may I?

    Amendment Bill 1: The Constitution of the "More Perfect Union" America may be amended through same process as the real-life Constitution of the United States of America, with in-game cities corresponding to real-life American states.

    So crazy it just might work. You could split off everything post-comma into a second bill, if you think it might be necessary.

    The Third Congress of the Communist Party of America is now in progress. We are assembling once again in our Capital. The agenda items include Worker Progress, Research Agenda, Wealth Utilization, Settler Strategy, and Social Policies, among others. All Party Members are welcome to attend. New Applicants are also welcome.

    Seeing as the Communist Party of America is now a Major party, am I still on the Minor party ballot or will we be switiching to a general election for the Washington Senator?

    @Ceskari: I now have more than 5 posts, though I may be short of the five day waiting period.
