Debates

I will be participating in tonight's debate at 7 PM ET. This is a great opportunity for you, the voters and citizens of our beloved republic, to hear from your candidates about their vision for the future of the Republic of Atlasia. You can rest assured that I will come prepared to delineate my positions to the people. I am the candidate best positioned to serve as Vice President in this election for a myriad of reasons:

1) I have the experience necessary to help govern effectively
2) I know how to work across the aisle and build coalitions to get things done
3) I am committed to a better future for all and remain principled and steadfast in that endeavor

With Ted as President and Spark as Vice President, we will come together to restore the vision of Atlasia to bring prosperity to every corner of this country. If you believe in that vision, join the campaign toward something greater than ourselves. Be sure to tune in to the debate this evening at 10 PM EST or 7 PM PST!

Thank you for your support.

Best,

Senator Spark, candidate for Vice President

The debate is at 7 Pacific according to OBD

5th Constitution

The Fifth Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia was ratified and will be implemented shortly. We need a Senator who understands how to work with others to make this transition work seamlessly. I have not hesitated to ask colleagues in the Senate for their advice and worked in tandem toward a mutual goal. Atlasia required a transformation into something better, that is what I will continue to provide. Our citizens should be given a fair choice in who governs them. Labor has been in power for a long while, and it is necessary to give others a chance.

It will take all of us to make this work and I am the candidate that will put the interests of Atlasia first. I have always done so and always will. It is important that we do not let our meaningful work fall by the wayside, but to continue to build upon it. Some of the ways that I will work to ensure that the Fifth Constitution is implemented is to build a partnership with the next President (regardless of party), our Governor, and the Chamber of Delegates. I will help to pass legislation that increases transparency in the electoral process for voters to understand the changes to the Constitution.

For those of you who feel left out of the electoral process, this is your chance to make a difference in our country.

Thank you!

Best,

Senator Spark

Nashville, Tennessee

Abortion

Hello my fellow Southerners, today I am here in the heart of the South to speak about abortion. Abortion is a key, but contentious issue in our Republic. My Senate colleagues have supported reproductive rights to the detriment of our unborn citizens. I pledge to you that if re-elected, I will continue to fight for the rights of the unborn. Last session, I attempted to introduce a constitutional amendment that would limit abortions. I will continue to fight for this important measure in the next session. I am open to working on compromises that would accomplish that goal. I remain principled on this issue, just know many in the South are pro-life and desire to see abortion reduced to the minimum level possible.

We need to keep our next generation in mind and not extinguish their chances at a chance for a successful life.

Best,

Senator Spark

Atlanta, GA

Crime

Hello my fellow Southerners, I come before you today to speak more about crime in our inner cities and across the region. We must do more to deter violent crime by longer sentencing guidelines while simultaneously decreasing the propensity for mass incarceration by not penalizing non-violent offenders for offenses such as marijuana possession. Violent crime in inner cities is best addressed when working in consultation with state and local partners to increase funding, recognize hot spots in the community, and emphasize community policing. If we accomplish these objectives, our communities will become safer, more prosperous, and tranquility will ensure.

Thank you.

Topeka, Kansas

Meeting w/ Tmth

Hello everyone, this evening, I had the opportunity to speak with former President Tmthfor94. Tmth is a principled leader and fighter each day for the South. He has been a fervent and committed advocate for all of us and I am proud to join him in this fight to keep our region prosperous.

Tmth shared the below statement regarding my candidacy for regional Senate:

"Spark is a good citizen, he is someone who actively collaborates with others and he works so hard for his constituents. He has been great at reaching out to DA members for feedback and his willingness to always grow is what makes him very special. Spark continues the TM legacy each and every day and will continue to do great things for us. Vote Spark!!!" -Tmth

I am very honored and thankful that I have Tmth as a staunch ally as an elected official. As demonstrated by Tmth's statement, I can assure you that I will heed advice from members and voters of the Democratic Alliance. Your interests matter to me as does the entirety of the Southern citizenry.

This is the reason I believe I deserve to be re-elected to serve you for another term in the Senate. I have your best interests in mind, and will continue to do the people's work.

Best,

Senator Spark

June, October Presidential elections

Hello everybody. I want to congratulate our President-elect SevenEleven and Governor LouisvilleThunder on a hard-fought campaign. This election was contentious, but nevertheless our democracy thrives. Mr. LT is a close friend of mine, we may have our disagreements but I consider him a long-time ally and friend. As for Sev, he is a dignified person and respectable officeholder, and I have no doubts about his ability to serve.

However, I do have reservations about some of the policies he pushed for as Senator and if he will truly govern for all Atlasians. I hope this sentiment is true and will come to pass, but if it does not, many will be left out from this vision for Atlasia. Labor has been in power for a while, and power corrupts. That is the reason today I am declaring to run for the Federalist nomination for President in October. I believe declaring early enough will provide me with a chance to get to know our citizens, priorities for our country going forward, and to evaluate the policy specifics that the President-elect's administration will implement.

We can all hope for a better future, but this vision is different than my own for Atlasia. I will explicitly lay out this vision in the coming weeks.

Let's keep believing in the promise of Atlasia for all. It is worth fighting for.

Thank you.

Best,

Senator Spark

This a re-post of my campaign platform:

Running for President

Hello everybody! This is the moment we've all been waiting for in Atlasia. I am officially running a campaign for President. Despite being a write-in candidate for now, I believe that I have the best vision for our land. The past few Presidents have been of the opposing party, but with the new Fifth Constitution being ratified, our land could use a much-needed change. We will make a pivot toward prosperity for our neighbors and for our posterity. I believe I am best positioned to make a change in Atlasia.

First, I want to provide you with some background about myself. I have an extensive record of service to our country.

My resume and bio is below:

https://talkelections.org/AFEWIKI/index.php?title=Spark498

I have had the opportunity to work with many prominent politicians in Atlasia and have consistently worked across the aisle to compromise on key issues while maintaining credence to my values and principles. I believe that we can do better in Atlasia. Rather than fighting each other and displaying excessive partisanship, we need to come together and put Atlasia first. Throughout my career, I have remain committed to serving the people, irrespective of any special interests. I've avoided political entanglements, veering to extremity, and have learned from my past mistakes. In this campaign, I pledge to you and my opponents that I will conduct myself in a civil manner and avoid any partisan rancor or divisiveness. That type of campaign will only seek to divide us in this crucial moment. We need to unify around one singular purpose - being the best we can be to care for our communities, create a positive and bright future for our children, and increase the amount of opportunities available for our citizens.

I have accomplished all of the above in my previous capacities. As President, I plan to uphold the rule of law, bring promise to every corner of Atlasia, root out injustice, and be a champion for our working people. Some of my plans if elected, include:

-Modernizing our transportation grid to enable rural Atlasians access to work
-Protecting the sanctity of life by introducing a constitutional amendment
-Provide subsidies to farmers in regions dependent on agriculture
-Reform our immigration system to enable for easier legal immigration while protecting our borders
-Negotiating trade deals to strengthen our auto and manufacturing sectors
-Focusing on criminal justice reform and promoting federal training and advocacy programs for de-escalation training for police, committing to a federal national registry for police misconduct
-Supporting renewable energies such as wind, solar, and hydropower while maintaining our offshore oil wells
-Establishing transitional services for workers, especially miners, to combat unemployment caused by impending automation
-Supporting unions' collective bargaining rights
-Expanding the federal highway system, modernizing our transportation grid
-Passing the Atlasian Tax Cuts and Jobs Act to reduce the income tax for middle and low earners, contract out infrastructure services
-Balance the federal budget, reaffirming a commitment to firm fiscal responsibility
-Passing the Childcare Opportunity Act by doubling the childcare tax credit and increasing funding for childcare centers
-Revive the office of Secretary of Internal Affairs
-Appoint a Comptroller General to evaluate the federal government's fiscal accountability
-Creating the space council
-Sanctioning our adversaries in Eastern Asia for their subversive practices where appropriate while expanding trade with other nations
-Appoint conservative justices who respect religious freedom, the right to life
-Regulate monopolies that comprise greater than 25% market share to protect consumers
-Provide a weekly address to the public on key initiatives and progress
-Working with our regional and local partners to aid in the Fifth Constitution's implementation

I firmly believe that these policies will set us on a path to great success. We cannot afford to let our nation fall into disarray or satisfaction with the status quo. We have to continue making progress toward our goals and bringing opportunity to where it is needed most.

I am committed to that mission and I plan to further it if elected President.

Best,

Senator Spark

P.S. I have started the VP search.

Vice Presidential Search

Hello everyone, I am accepting suggestions for the vice-presidential spot on the ticket. You may send me a PM or post publicly here to be considered. I am not opposed to running with a member of any party except the Labor party, due to the divergence in views that I believe is needed. I will consider all perspectives of my running-mate and heed their advice. It is important to me that the person that is selected as my vice president is able to serve on day 1 of my administration.

I do have a short-list of individuals that I am releasing to the public today. You deserve nothing but full transparency about this matter.

My short-list for Vice President of Atlasia is as follows (in no particular order):

House Speaker Rep. Joseph Cao
Fmr. Lt. Gov. RGN
Sen. AGA (declined)
Sen. Jimmy (declined)
Fmr. Gov. ReaganClinton
Lincoln Speaker LfromNJ

There may be instances where I may need to add or remove candidates from this list. Should no candidate accept, I hope that our nominee will be selected on the floor of the convention.

All of the above named officeholders are more than qualified to serve as Vice President. I look forward to considering their candidacy.  

Thank you.

Best,

Senator Spark

I would like to nominate a pile of cow dung.  It's important to have a consistent message, and it would really complete the ticket.
