Sense when have we had a general policy? If you post a poll over wether or not we should increase relations with a civ (let's say france), and then say that the majority of people support. As my elected official, I should trust you to make the right choices in response to that poll. Whatever those choices may be. As I said earlier, we might as well just appoint people if there going to ask our approval for every little thing. It would be faster, and wouldn't make one differance. Any canidate I vote for in the coming elections will receive my trust. I only hope that others may follow the same mindset.
