The author didn't bother drafting this thing and the co-author has a history of submitting shoddy proposals without any drafting whatsoever. This proposal also doesn't do much that isn't already covered by GA #35 a.k.a. The Charter of Civil Rights. I would strongly advise the Delegate to stomp the proposal out of the gate; if that isn't possible then it should be stomped ASAP.

Making a strong comeback after a 2,000-vote stomp right out of the gate. And as expected, IA's got a verbose repeal ready to go, which I imagine will also pass.

 

*sighs* The General Assembly, ladies and gents!

 

It’s bureaucracy, politics, and government all rolled into one.

Obviously, the Delegate has every right to cast his vote however he wishes. I respect that. That doesn't prevent me from expressing my disappointment, however. I can't help but feel as if the proposal wouldn't do as well if Dave didn't stack in favour.

That's just me, though.

I am sincerely disappointed in the role Dave has taken. While I understand that it is Dave’s definitive decision, and I respect, I find it hard to believe that our Delegate chooses to support a proposal that has grammatical errors, has not been peer reviewed, and is already covered under the CoCR. It’s lucky we have a repeal ready.

But that’s my evaluation. If Dave chooses to support it, then I will.
