There are few states with more than 2 voters...

Actually, we kind of have a senate already, since a lot of us declared ourselves senators during the campaign.

We could do senators by regions, like in my region plan.

As long as the Senate was done in regions, like Harry suggested (one for west, midwest, northeast, south, mid-atlantic, southeast)

I think there should be a senate, house and SCT in some way.  We then could put this with Presidency and VP and pass bill ( well talk about ones in congress), talk about roles of Presidencya nd SCT cases int eh real world with players here and make it practical and a way to discuss and learn ytthe topics of the day.

I'm sorry, I'm just not for the idea.  I'm not trying to get mine and then pull up the latter so no one else can get any.  I just think that we should stick with disscussion and stay away from that level of organization.  I don't expect anything out of being president other than to have fun and represent the forum.  That's all.  That being said, I think that a whole government would be hazardous to the forum and may cause some GOOD, COMITTED members to leave.

I fact, so that we can keep elections "Because this is fun".  I propose that one year (or whenever we decide) from now, we hold a new election and I will NOT run if elected this time.  That way we can get some new blood.

Self-appointed senators?  I can live with crowning myself.

Too, much of a good thing can become decadent.

It isn't that much, so I think I will manage... Smiley

I don't think this thing should be exaggerated either. And I agree that we maybe should do it more often than evrey 4th year. It gives a break from the everyday routine of serious posting... Wink
