  1. Past hour
  2. @Conservative Elector 2 Need a new Representative for the Budget committee.
  3. Albert Gallatin can't stay as Chair of the Foreign Affairs committee since he's Senate Majority Leader, so I'll promote @Kingthero Nathaniel Macon to Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee. Senator Aaron Burr will replace Macon on the Judicial committee. On that note, @Reagan04, Rufus King can't stay on the Foreign Affairs Committee for the same reason, so he'll need to be replaced.
  4. COMPROMISE TARIFF Passes in the Senate. House: Aye: @Hestia11 96, @WVProgressive 64, @Actinguy 101, @Herbert Hoover 100 = 361 Nay: @Reagan04 117 = 117 Abstain: @SilentLiberty 65 = 65 Has not voted: @Conservative Elector 2: 118 That's more than enough to pass it. The Compromise Tariff becomes law! Revenue moves up to -10, but we're still in an economic panic. I'm going to process the points momentarily, but it will take me a little while. I"ll give @Hestia11 until then to appoint Ambassadors. It's been about 48 hours. If he doesn't respond by the time I'm ready, President Jackson will just reappoint the old ambassadors to their slots. I need to send an ambassador out to a country before the election, and 48 hours should be long enough to wait.
  5. For abstaining instead of proposing legislation when they could have: @Reagan04: 180 @Kingthero: 130
  6. SLAVE EXPORTATION BAN: Rolled for the possible negative economic effects -- got a 4. No impact. @SilentLiberty: 980 @Herbert Hoover: 1260 @Conservative Elector 2: 880 @Reagan04: 880 @WVProgressive: 660 @Actinguy: 720 @Hestia11: 260 @Kingthero: -120
  7. The success of the Bloc eliminated any chance at a Liberal majority. Not as good as what they'd thought, but good enough to end the chance.
  8. True. The Prairie Provinces will likely turn out a great majority to the Conservatives, and B.C. will likely be NDP on the coast (with maybe a Green or two), and mostly Conservatives in the Interior. Yukon, and POSSIBLY one or both of the other Northern Territories may likely give Liberal MP's to their overrepresented (population-wise) single ridings each.
  9. I don't think the Liberals are likely to win a majority outright. CBC said that minority or majority is possible. Opposition currently leading them by 7 according to my count. Western Canada is unlikely to be kind to the Liberals.
  10. It looked like a coalition would be needed before today.... But, the NDP would be almost certain to back Trudeau over Scheer if there were no majority. See my Clegg analog, above, if Singh inexplicably backed Scheer.
  11. Today
  12. He's predicted to win, at this point, a little over 40% of the vote.
  13. Based off the election so far, do you think the election looks promising for Trudeau? I'm not sure how the provinces generally vote.
  14. U.S. major news networks are sensationalist and looking for ratings. Thus, Zimbabwean, Russian, Myanmaran, Venezuelan, Iranian, and Turkish, and, though for different reasons, but in a related theme, British, French, Israeli, Indian, and Hong Kong elections are much more sought after fodder for such coverage.
  15. To @SilentLiberty, @Herbert Hoover, @Conservative Elector 2, @WVProgressive, @Hestia11, @Kingthero for a vote.
  16. @ActinguyI'll be voting against the Compromise Tariff
  17. Ok, I have all the retirements and autodraft picks written out, so it won't take me long to put them in. However, I'll be going to bed soon and then I teach in the morning, so it seems the earliest I'll get those on the spreadsheet will be sometime midday tomorrow. You have the judicial phase too and people can fill their election tabs in the meantime.
  18. After people vote on my Compromise Tariff proposal, it will just be @Reagan04 left to propose something.
