On behalf of the colonists of New Vegas, we 2nd the motion proposed by by the Senator of Prime, Prolapser in keeping with parliamentary procedure. New Vegas is a single colony world at the moment and did not receive ballots or even notification that the first election was even happening due to being on a remote world with slow communications. (OOC-Only used PC client)

We concur with the proposal that single colony worlds should automatically get the right to name a governor and senator to this Galactic Congress, I would counter-propose that it be one week but inevitably either way returns the same results in that those worlds now have the ability to elect their own representation and have direct control over planetary affairs wherein the Galactic Government is concerned.

To quote an old Terran sayin', "No taxation without Representation."

None of my colonists are taxed. Do you intend to tax yours? Because I don't see anyone else being taxed anywhere.

No we do not, our local government is still finalizing its ideology around such things but most likely it will be a free form of democracy where all get equal votes to cast in local affairs and freedoms to do with their lives as they see fit. Should they choose taxation though that shall be their choice to provide for things such as colony infrastructure support.

I have heard tell that many of the colony worlds out their treat their colonists as slave labor...

Surely the Senator representing the multiple systems of Neu Himar and Primo Spe can determine the comment to be rhetorical in nature...

to simplify my meaning….. New Vegas WILL have representation or else it will have independence….we would prefer to have that representation, being the hardworking peaceful freedom loving colony that we are but we also reserve the right to persevere against neglectful governmental mismanagement through rules of succession should they so choose…

I do not know the limitations on the Political System, but how about a 90 day cycle but once a new system, with out any former government, has grown say 5,000 population a vote comes available to elect a Senator for the system, a Governor for the planets that have a population, and a Mayor for the colonies of that system.

Unless it is a stepping gate to another colony, or a great asteroid field loaded with Promethium. ;)


Just saying, some here want systems to have 1 million population before a gate is proposed

And those some are not in the systems and should have little say what happens. :P

Cuz I could say systems with more then 100,000 have to have a gate. That would not be right for me to dictate what they do. It is not right for them to dictate what others do.
