No objections to cosponsorship.

This bill repeals dumb imperialist laws in which we annexed random foreign land for no reason other than nationalist ego. This includes parts of Sudan and Antarctica. Repealing these laws sends the message that Atlasia isnt some international bully boy.

I could support this without giving up our claim on Antarctica, we've maintained the right to claim land there since the cold war days. The other stuff is dumb and unenforceable (and admittedly any Antarctic claim is also unenforceable like everyone else's claim but why not join in right)

Aye

I think we should maintain our position that no country can claim antarctica. Its hard to tell other countries they dont own most of it when we claim we own part. Our claim wasnt even based on what was the best part but rather just what was claimed. Im glad we repealed the Guano Islands Act previously and think we should stop trying imperialism. And all of antarctica should be free.

Uh, this kind of relates to my job, right?

Anyway, endorsing this bill from the State Department. Atlasia should relinquish any arbitrary claims on territory which can't even be represented or registered to.

Aye

I don't recall us ever voting on a co sponsorship before. Most of it is just formality since the rules stipulate that Co-sponsors don't automatically become primary sponsor, I don't think it has been objected to before.

I move to amend the bill as follows:

Quote
Section 2. Renunciation of imperialist claims

A. The Screwing Around With Borders Act is hereby repealed.

B. Section 2 of The Now We're Really Screwing Around With Borders Act is hereby repealed.

This would remove our weird and frivolous claim to Bir Tawil, but not to Marie Byrd Land in Antarctica.
