Atleast one republican understands this! It doesn't matter if your side is the one with more, it has to be balanced.

troubling, but as for an actual solution, I am open to opinions on the subject. I think we should decrease much of our militarization in the Middle East because it often leads to bad feelings and less security rather than more. I also feel that

As we have said before, it's pretty clear that this is an alternate account. That is simply not right to have in the VC

Hi, everyone. I would first like to assure you all that I will be able to be active within the VC and look forward to becoming more involved. Regarding my views on foreign policy, I believe we should always support our allies but generally decrease

our presence and not attempt to police the rest of the world, keeping in mind the sovereignty of other nations. I believe that realistically we should support Israel, but also isolate Iran as little as possible. I find our response to Iran morally

On a side note, everyone get as many of your followers as possible to join VC. For whatever reason, our Democrats aren't as active, and it's more fun when we have a larger, more representative group!

I understand you find it funny, so nobody is stopping you from doing it in other polls. But not in here. That cannot be allowed. One person can't have multiple votes.

Seriously if this IS a second account, and I think it is, the user should have to reveal himself and not be allowed to have both accounts in the virtual congress.

I proposed an idea through one of the polls where the president, vp, Secretary of State, secretary of defense and the presidents foreign policy advisor (currently myself) meet through Skype or the congress to discuss and decide foreign policy issues

I apologize to the Congressman from Massachusetts for not bringing his bill to the floor in a reasonable time. I have now brought the bill by Skinner to the floor.

Octopus is very knowledgeable politically and while she has been quiet in comment sections she has been following the VC and has made it clear to me that she will be involved as a cabinet member
