    I believe that Sparthage is incorrect in his assesment. What he is saying is that it is legal to hire some assasins to kill your neighbor because of some petty disagreement while being protected from the consequences because the same assasins refuse to release your name. This is not how America is supposed to work! I would like to join with many others in asking the current administration to change its mind. President Sparthage, I urge you to outlaw this terrible crime and those that sheild the criminals. Mr. President, I urge you to outlaw the Assasins Guild!

    OOC: I am perfectly OK with leaving assasination alone, but I urge you to outlaw the Assasins Guild.

    I say we leave the Assassins Guild along.. Just integrate it into the government, so that it has the monopoly on it.

    Then it can just function as a commando group; instead of taking up anyone's contract, instead it will eliminate foreign and domestic enemies.

    I think he meant domestic as in Copperhead or Joker type domestic. LH related domestic. In which case I agree with. If he meant domestic as in opposition leader, then NO. I also believe that during Election times, they need to have free reign as with last election, as otherwise they basicly become a government puppet all of the time.

    No. The government should not be able to control this evil either. I urge for the outlawing of the Guild, NOT its legalization!

    It's not legalization. I plan for the Guild to eventually evolve into a Government body--Think something akin to the Night Eagles from RP1. Everything they do will only be by Government discretion. Right now they are dangerous. But they could evolve into a useful tool.

    We don't need to incorporate nothing. We'll train our own.

    I just realized.

    I was attacked by someone I didn't put an assassination order against in the first place.

    So much for law and order eh?

    I am against assassinations myself, and President Spartage's comments on this issue is kind of disappointing, since quite a lot of important people from both Horizons and Foundation Coaltion, had close assassination attempts on their lives during the last election.

    In other news, I am considering the possibility of forming a political party to counter the lack of moderates and the power of the current horizons coalition. As soon as I figure things out, I will make a public announcement on the formation of such a party.

    I would like to agree with Aysee on this matter. Integration into the government will prevent undiscriminated killing of politicians, and as long as they do not do anything during elections, I am fine with this choice.

    I leave the People's Party to form the Extra-Socialist Workers Party!
    We believe the People's Party has strayed too much to the right. We believe that one man may not own more than his peers, and that everyone, everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, has access to the riches of our lands - killing anyone who dares take them from us (foreigners >.<)

    Policies:
    Order
    Autocracy
    Liberty
    Hono(u)r
    Taking into consideration:
    Tradition
    Rationalism

    -------------
    I did just do this. Was that allowed?
    (yeah, I am the commie swine compared to DT)

    I LEAVE YOU GUYS ALONE FOR TWO DAYS.....

    <sigh> I am reminded very much of IOT-VI, and how whenever I came back a new war had started.

    OK, big news seems to be the Aryan Attack, and the guild question is back, as well as a new party.

    Just 1 thing that I want to pick out first. Both Arya and The MOR party have stated that they care 'most' or 'more' for the people than the 'others.' Guys, please don't say that kinda stuff, It really Irritates me. You cannot measure care, and even if you could, I doubt that you have sufficient Information to do that for everybody.

    Okay, Onto the Big News. I condenm this conflict between Sonereal, the Guild, and the people who have supported The Guild. I will echo Nukes words here, this is spiralling towards anarchy. We DON'T want anarchy. The goal of the government is to prevent anarchy, and they are NOT inspiring much confidence right now.

    Thus, I call for the Government to sort this out. THIS IS YOUR JOB! You shouldn't need me to tell you to do it. Get over this Inability to act and DO something. It doesn't matter whether you like the Guild or not, your Primary concern is to stop this nonsense. There is NO WAY we can let this wantom Violence go unpunished. We are supposed to be leaders, figureheads, EXAMPLES for the people to follow. How do they see this do you think? Our Politicians acting like schoolchildren, (OOC:even if a lot of us may be schoolchildren IRL :OOC) and beating on each other like common thugs. We are supposed to be better than this.

    SPARTHAGE! YOU ARE PRESIDENT! SORT THIS OUT!

    <takes deep, calming breath>

    And just in case you haven't been Listening, I'll just add again that I don't really care much what happens to the Assassins Guild.

    DT
    Opposition Leader :king:

    Edit: Okay, so who is still in the PPA? :p Seriously guys, we're completely falling apart, Divide and conquer works best when the enemy's are the ones dividng. :p

    So that's the job of the opposition leader, to criticise stuff as long as it exists? Interesting.

    Not really. The way I see it, most of that was just telling the government to do it's job and sort this out. The only actual opposition stuff is that little quote at the bottom. :p But seriously, If the government isn't going to take decisive action in a situation like this, then we need a new government. If all they will do is sit around and say 'we don't like it much, but we're not gonna do anything,' then are they really people we can trust not to do that in a crisis? As far as I can see, the government is paralysed with indecision, and we Can't have that. We need a government capable of taking decisive action. We had a very similar situation in RP1, with the Cull riots. Heck, Arya was involved in that one as well. Cull took decisive action then. We need to do the same here.

    Also, all ye little PPA spinoffs, are you still in foundation, or you gonna go it alone?

    Merger? Since I'm pretty sure we agree on every policy.
