Hoping someone will sponsor this:

LouisvilleThunder Resolution

- It is the Sense of the Senate that Governor LouisvilleThunder should have been found guilty of the criminal charges filed against him
- It is the further sense of the Senate that the actions of doxxing, hacking into a party's discord server, and refusing to accept the results of an election, are never acceptable and dishonor the very fabric of the republic of Atlasia
You're doing yourself no favors lol.

Anyone who would sponsor this is a Wulfricist or a Wulfricist by Association.

AN ACT
To restore democratic principles in Atlasia

Section I.
I. This Act may be cited as the Saving Democracy Act.

Section II.

I. All candidates running for political office, whether this is at the regional or federal level, must agree to concede the election if they have clearly lost.

II. Losing candidates may request a recount if they are within a 5% margin.  This recount must be conducted in a bipartisan manner.

Section III.

I. Losing candidates may not form their own government, attempt to revert or deny the results of a certified election, or weaken the integrity of the union, no matter what their intentions are.

II. Edit warring and vandalism on the wiki, used to preserve and document Atlasia's history, will not be permitted.  Repeated attempts may result in a ban from editing.


Invoking Article 2, Section 2 and blocking these bills. They will not be on the floor.

This is an extreme breach of your authority.  You brought frivolous bills about spark, LT, and Wulfric onto the floor, so why are these being blocked? 
Y'all should motion to override his decision.

NO MORE BUCK V. BELL ACT

Quote
Whereas, many States in Atlasia have a shameful record of forcibly or coercively sterilizing otherwise healthy criminals, minors, social outcasts, and persons who lacked the capacity to give informed consent; and

Whereas, sterilizing otherwise healthy persons deprives such persons of their God-given rights to form families; and

Whereas, sterilizing otherwise healthy persons negatively impacts the public health, safety, and welfare of Atlasia by limiting potential families and population growth, while wasting scarce medical resources; and

Whereas, limiting the risk of coercive sterilizations while balancing the need for sterilization in certain medically-necessary cases is important;

Now therefore, the Atlasian Senate Assembled hereby ordains the following:

1. No federal court in Atlasia shall authorize or require the sterilization of a minor, nor of a prisoner, nor of an adult who lacks the capacity to give informed consent.

2. It shall be unlawful for any licensed physician or healthcare practioner to perform a vasectomy, salpingectomy, hysterectomy, tubal ligation, orchiectomy, penectomy, mastectomy, or other surgical sexual sterilization procedure on any otherwise healthy adult who is imprisoned or who is involuntarily committed or otherwise lacks the mental capacity to give informed consent.

3. It shall be unlawful for any licensed physician or healthcare practioner to perform a vasectomy, salpingectomy, hysterectomy, tubal ligation, orchiectomy, penectomy, mastectomy, or other surgical sexual sterilization procedure on any otherwise healthy minor child younger than eighteen (18) years of age.

4. Prior to or at the time of a patient request for any sexual sterilization procedure, a full, reasonable, and comprehensible medical explanation as to the meaning and consequences of such an operation and as to alternative methods of contraception shall be given by the physician to the person requesting the operation. No procedure shall be performed until at least ten (10) days subsequent to the person requesting the procedure offering written consent and receiving the counseling prescribed herein, except where such delay poses a substantial risk to the physical health of the patient.

5. A licensed physician or healthcare practioner who performs a vasectomy, salpingectomy, hysterectomy, tubal ligation, orchiectomy, penectomy, mastectomy, or other surgical sexual sterilization procedure upon any otherwise healthy person in violation of this act shall be liable to the individual if injured (including any physical, psychological, emotional, or physiological harms) by such procedure, related treatment, or the aftereffects of the procedure.

6. An individual eligible to sue may, not later than the day that is fifteen (15) years after the date on which the individual turns eighteen (18) years of age, regains mental capacity, is discharged from imprisonment, or otherwise becomes eligible to sue, bring a civil action against such physician in a court of competent jurisdiction for:

A. declaratory or injunctive relief;

B. compensatory damages;

C. punitive damages; and

D. attorney’s fees and costs.

7. Subject to the rules of law applicable generally to negligence, no licensed physician or healthcare practioner shall be either civilly or criminally liable by reason of having refused or declined to perform a vasectomy, salpingectomy, hysterectomy, tubal ligation, orchiectomy, penectomy, mastectomy, or other surgical sexual sterilization procedure upon any otherwise healthy person in Atlasia.

8. No federal public funds shall be expended to pay for or facilitate a vasectomy, salpingectomy, hysterectomy, tubal ligation, orchiectomy, penectomy, mastectomy, or other surgical sexual sterilization procedure upon any otherwise healthy person.

9. No provision in this act shall apply to or be construed so as to prevent, control, or regulate the medical or surgical treatment for sound therapeutic reasons of any person in Atlasia by a licensed physician or healthcare practioner, which treatment may require sexual sterilization or may involve the nullification or destruction of the reproductive functions, including but not limited to treatment for cancer. For the purposes of this provision the sterilization of a person whose physical health would be endangered by a pregnancy shall be deemed a medical or surgical treatment for sound therapeutic reasons.

10. This act shall take effect thirty (30) days from the date of passage.

Section 2 (Crimes against Atlasia)
i. The following shall be crimes against Atlasia:
(a) Impersonation. This offense shall be defined as the impersonation of another Atlas Forum member, be they a citizen of the Republic of Atlasia or not, within the territory of the Republic of Atlasia.

(c) Voter Fraud. This offence shall be defined as the creation of identities other than a citizen's primary identity in the Republic of Atlasia and subsequently entering this identity into the tally of registered voters.
1. If a citizen no longer has access to their previous forum account and wishes to register with a new forum account in Atlasia, then they shall be allowed to do so legally only if they make it clear in the registration thread who they are and which forum account they previously registered under so that the Secretary of Federal Elections may appropriately update the registration without having any duplicate accounts on the voter roll.
2. This shall exclude those who have had their previous account banned from the Atlas Forum.
(d) Electoral Fraud. This offence shall be defined as the manipulation of of the republic's electoral procedures and practices with the aim of fraudulently altering the results of a specific electoral contest.
(e) Obscenity. This offence shall be defined as the posting of any threads, messages, images, videos, links or other media of a pornographic or sexually explicit nature on the territory of the Republic of Atlasia. In cases where the material posted is of a clearly pornographic nature, the offence shall be known as Gross Obscenity.
(f) Electoral Intimidation. This offence shall be defined as the placing of undue pressure on a citizen of the Republic to cast a ballot in a particular way, to not cast a ballot at all, or to invalidate a ballot already cast via direct threats of revenge, blackmail, or retribution. In those cases in which undue pressure has been applied in the form of credible threats to disclose personal information, the offence shall be known as Grievous Electoral Intimidation.

In those cases in which undue pressure has been applied in the form of credible threats to disclose personal information, the offence shall be known as Grievous Intimidation of Game Moderators. It is the job of a Game Moderator to remain neutral, and as such, all other players are bound to respect that.
ii. In those cases in which a Crime Against Atlasia has been attempted unsuccessfully, it shall nevertheless be possible to charge a citizen with the offense that they unsuccessfully attempted to commit. In such cases the official record of the charge shall be prefaced with 'Attempted', but no other alterations to procedure shall be made. This applies to all Crimes Against Atlasia with the exception of Obscenity (including Gross Obscenity), Misconduct in Public Office, Perjury, and Contempt of Court.
iii.

In such cases the record of the charge shall be prefaced with Conspiracy to Commit, but no other alterations to procedure shall be made. It shall not be necessary to charge an individual with a specific Crime Against Atlasia in order to charge other persons in this manner.

This shall be defined as the denial – whether by word, by deed, or by omission – by any serving officeholder in the Republic of Atlasia or any of its constituent Regions of the supremacy of federal law, or of the decision by any person to serve in a Regional government that denies that it is subject to federal law.

Section 4 (Criminal Liability)
i. In order for a criminal conviction in the Republic of Atlasia to stand it is necessary that the case against a defendant or against multiple defendants be proven beyond all reasonable doubt.
ii. The basic standard of liability for cases concerning both Crimes Against Atlasia and Acts of Treason shall be as in the Common Law: actus reas non facit reum nisi mens sit rea. It must therefore be proven not only that a criminal act has taken place but that the citizen charged can be reasonably held to be fully responsible, whether by act or by omission, for that criminal act.
iii. In cases in which it is certain that a criminal act has been committed by a member of a group of persons, but that it is not certain which of those persons has committed the criminal act, then it shall be possible to convict all said group of persons of the criminal charge in question, provided it can be demonstrated that there was no attempt by that group of persons to prevent the criminal act from taking place.

Section 5 (Criminal Prosecution)
i. Trial of all Crimes against Atlasia and Acts of Treason shall be performed in full compliance with the provisions of Article I of the Fourth Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia. Breach of these provisions shall render any conviction unsafe.
ii. Defendants shall not be denied access to legal counsel from an active citizen of their choice, and also retain the right to waive their right to legal counsel. If a defendant has attempted without success to secure legal counsel or has, after a period of more than forty eight hours, declined to either seek or affirmatively waive legal representation, then the Department of Justice shall nominate an appropriately qualified citizen to act as Public Defendant for the duration of the trial. Said nominee must meet with the approval of the Presiding Judge in the trial in question and must be a person of upstanding moral character.
iii. The Judiciary is hereby mandated to create and to uphold all rules with respect to trial procedure, up to and including the matter of personal conduct, so long as these rules do not contradict any part of this Act. In the event of a gross breach of trial procedure, the Presiding Judge may choose to charge the person or persons responsible with Contempt of Court which shall be treated as a Crime against Atlasia as per Section 2, clause i of this Act.

Section 6 (Admissibility of Evidence)
i. The Presiding Judge may admit the following as evidence at his own discretion:
(a) Any actual statements, whether quoted in full or in part, made on the Atlas Forum that pertain to the trial. If these statements have been deleted from the Atlas Forum but a copy in the form of a screenshot has been made of them, then that copy in the form of a screenshot may be treated as equally admissible to an original quoted statement. If these statements have been deleted from the Atlas Forum, but survive – whether in full or in part – as quotations in the post of another Atlas Forum user, then these quoted fragments may also be treated as equally admissible to an original quoted statement.
(b) The sworn testimony of a citizen of the Republic of Atlasia who has witnessed the alleged offence or its planning or preparation at first hand, or who has witnessed credible evidence of conspiracy.
(c) An admission of guilt or culpability by the defendant in a thread on the Atlas Forum, or in a place viewed or heard by other persons, with recordings or testimony attributing to the same.
(d) Evidence obtained through proper investigation of the IP address from which the offence was perpetrated.
(e) Credible evidence presented to the Court by the Forum Moderators or by Dave Leip, the Forum Owner.
(f) Other forms of evidence that are credible in nature and which do not contradict this Act or the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia may additionally be considered.
ii. The Presiding Judge has an absolute right to reject evidence (whether in whole or in part) that he or she feels to be tainted by procedural flaws, to be of dubious provenance or to wholly lack credibility.

Section 7 (Sentencing)
i. In the event of a conviction, sentencing shall be carried out by the Presiding Judge in accordance with the following guidelines:
(a) The standard punishment for both Crimes Against Atlasia and Acts of Treason shall be the removal of certain political rights – the right to hold office and the right to vote in federal or regional elections – of the guilty person or persons. The Presiding Judge may decide at his or her discretion on the exact combination of political rights to remove from the guilty person or persons. Subsequent references to sentence length refer to any and all combination of the above punishments.
(b) For all Crimes Against Atlasia and even for Acts of Treason there shall be no minimum sentence. In such exceptional cases as the Presiding Judge sees fit, he or she may opt to issue a Discharge, which shall mean that the guilty person or persons shall suffer no punishment further than the acquisition of a criminal record.
(c) The maximum sentence for all Crimes Against Atlasia other than Identity Theft or Electoral Intimidation shall be of one year in length.
(d) The maximum sentence for Identity Theft and Electoral Intimidation shall be of two year in length.
(e) The maximum sentence for all Acts of Treason and Terrorism shall be of three years in length.
(f) The Presiding Judge may decide, if there are adequate grounds, to suspend a sentence – in whole or in part – and instead place the guilty person or persons under a period of probation, the exact length of which shall be no longer and no shorter than the part of the sentence being suspended. Failure by the guilty person or persons to obey in full the terms of their probation shall result in the immediate imposition of their full sentence. Life Sentences may not be suspended.

2. Nothing in this section shall be construed as to provide immunity to moderators who violate any
statutory provision that does not conflict with or obstruct enforcement of the terms of service.
3. Administrators and Moderators of the Atlas Forum shall be permitted to declare an account to be a sock account for the purpose of compliance with Article I, Section 15.

Motion to Expel Senator Fhtagn

The Senate, as assembled, motions to expel Senator Fhtagn for continued Southern revanchism and refusal to accept that the South no longer has the authority to secede from the union of Atlasia.


This motion, being an area where I have discretion, will not be recognized unless seconded. We have important business to conduct.
I'll second it.
