Hello again. It may be surprising that I am now running for two offices, a national Senate seat and a seat in the General Court. The decision of my friend Ishan to run for a regional Senate seat rather than a national one has brought me into this Senate race, for I believe that the people of Atlasia deserve a Liberal representing them nationally. However, I am also concerned for the lack of activity in the Lincoln General Court and would like to make sure that there are enough candidates vying for it. If I am fortunate enough to be elected to both offices, my choice of which office to take will be based on the circumstances at hand. I have been a very active member of the Lincoln General Court, having sponsored many bills, some garnering strong cross-party support. I am ready to bring the same energy to the Senate in service of the Atlasian people. If elected to the Senate, my focus will be directed towards:

  • Working across the aisle to find common ground and put Atlasia over politics
  • Promoting free market policies to help all Atlasians prosper
  • Defending civil liberties and the constitution
  • Working with international partners to solve global problems, such as climate change

Feel free to ask any questions.

I would like to thank everyone who made this victory possible. I will always be fighting for all Atlasians and am optimistic for what is to come in Atlasia's first unicameral Congress. Since the Senate is swearing in later than usual, I will first serve a bit of another term in the Lincoln General Court and then resign to serve in the Senate. It seems that there are some uncertainties regarding the final result of the presidential contest, which I expect to be cleared out later. Nevertheless, it is great the number of people who made their voice heard!

Statement on Rules Package

My fellow Senators and I have been working on the rules package, which must be passed before the Senate can work on any other matters. After input from many Senators, including me, the rules package looks to be in good shape. I will vote for the package so the Senate can get working for the Atlasian people. One of the first duties of this new Senate will be to hold confirmation hearings for the new administration. I plan on voting to confirm any qualified nominees who are within the ideological mainstream. Since there has already been some discussion regarding the next presidential election, I would like to state that I am not supporting any presidential campaign at this time.

Statement on Recent Senate Business

The Senate has already voted on quite a few bills. If you have any questions as to why I voted a certain way on a bill, let me know and I will share my reasoning. I would like to highlight my contribution to the budget. I successfully added an amendment that brought simple tax reforms, which were making the corporate tax flat and getting rid of the egregiously high top income tax rate. While I would like to see more reform, it seems unlikely that much more can be done given the current balance of power here in Nyman. We are also wrapping up the confirmation hearing for President Sev's nominee for Secretary of State, IBNU. While I have expressed some doubt in the qualifications of the nominee, I am aware that it may be difficult to find an alternative for this position and that previous Secretaries of State have set a very low bar in terms of activity. For those reasons, I decided to vote to confirm the nominee.

Today, I would like to thank the Labor Party for being sincere in what it stands for. It has taken a step towards transparency by removing the mask covering its true nature. The Labor Party just adopted a new amendment to its official platform, stating: "The means of production should belong to the workers who use them." This is the core tenant of socialism, an outdated, failed ideology that has been unsuccessful in lifting people out of poverty and instead crushed the economic opportunity of millions around the world. While Atlasia still is not a socialist state thanks to a vigilant opposition, many of Labor's more radical economic policies have already taken hold, such as tax rates exceeding 100% for some in Fremont.

Fortunately, Atlasia remains a healthy liberal democracy with free and fair elections, meaning there are many alternative parties to choose from. I urge anyone who is opposed to socialism to leave the Labor Party and join any one of our less radical parties, even if it is not my own.

Workplace democracy does not crush economic opportunities.

Frémont economically has been doing very well during the pandemic and I can confidently say I'm very proud of what Labor has accomplished in my home region, where states and localities cannot tax people. I wish I could say the same were true for the other regions.

spooky scawy socialists uwu

Good to see the opposition still using buzzwords and fearmongering to disguise the fact that unlike Labor, they do not have solutions to offer to the Atlasian people (corporations, though, are a different story)!

I am a proud Labor capitalist, the plank in question has been hotly debated for a year now and is still opposed by a good chunk of party membership, so I'm unsure if this is some attempt to score points or something, also I believe Fremont does not have 99% tax rates since they abolished triple taxation, and consolidated spending. Also if you're going to bring up that plank, I can just as easily bring up the fact that Tony Blair's Clause IV is in the platform, never mind that Blair himself was a socialist too. Even before Tony Blair removed Clause IV, Labour has probably only ever had two truly leftist leaders pre-Blair, Clement Attlee and Micheal Foot, I'm pretty sure that the Labor of Atlasia is nowhere near these two, in fact being near the right flank of New Labour, such as Gordon Brown might be a better comparison. It's almost like the platform doesn't actually mean anything, who else remembers when Puerto Rico statehood was in the Republican platform and they never did anything about it. This is a really weak attack and its clearly meant to scaremonger, and anyways if Atlasia implements socialist policies with the current electorate, I think a right wing candidate would easily win the next election and implement a policy of quasi-Thatcherism. The demand for Keynesianism, to the extent required to create a socialist state, simply doesn't exist, of course the demand for neoliberalism isn't that strong either, right now.
