Virtual Congress Nomination Confirmation Vote. President Trepidhickory has nominated Congressman NathanE (I) of Pennsylvania to be the Vice President. The Congress shall now vote to Confirm the nomination.
THE NOMINATION IS CONFIRMED. NATHANE IS NOW THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE VIRTUAL GOVERNMENT
I've never heard of the president, but heck yeah, NathanE.
Yeah sounds good, but Nathan is still a moderate...
what's wrong with being a moderate?
Nothing. Just being the "crazy right-winger" I am.
Sorry I haven't been around for this confirmation but allow me to explain my reasoning
Nathan is a moderate with slight conservative tendencies while I am a moderate with liberal tendencies. I feel like together he and I can bring this congress together and help keep it diverse and multi partisan
I'm happy to see my support has risen to 72%. Would I like it to be 100%? Of course, but I'm still thankful for the support I have received to this point and I still respect the opinions of the ones who voted against me. I hope the ones voted
That poll gave you a boost with republicans and libertarians. Congrats Mr. VP!
Against me did so because of my political views and nothing personal because I do think I have treated everyone in our government pretty well
Thank you MJ! Your idea of taking that test gave people a good idea of where I stood as well for sure, I think that helps as well
For those who know my commercial...
I'm a student and I endorse NathanE for VP
This ad is payed for by NathanE
You payed a congressman to vote for you!!!
And by American Crossroads.
Wait I didn't get any money! Who did you pay! Political are you holding out on me!
The American crossroads is giving you twice as much due, since I played golf with the leaders of the organization. You can think me later my fellow socialist.
I'm a democrat and I'll support Nathan for vp
Matt did you see the commercial?
Only because your from PA :-)
Haha my fellow keystone state citizen! Thank you sir!
I don't see why not. Nathan would be a great VP.
Thank you Veritas. I'm happy to see you participating in our government here, I respect your input a lot
Wow Nathan's already VP! Good luck Nathan I fully support your nomination.
Thank you skinner, I appreciate your support.
On one hand im not conservative enough for you guys, on the other I'm not liberal enough. I can't help I'm a moderate, but this is me and I'm not changing my views. This is NathanE and i will continue to be myself
Can you take this quiz
And tell us your results per issue and overall?
Excellent quiz! I was about to drill Nathan on ideology questions. Lol My fellow socialist provided a better way though.
Do you know why you believe what you believe. That's very important.
Absolutely. It may take a sec though, I'm currently busy at the moment
I may embarrass myself by saying this before Nathan takes the ideology quiz, but from talking to him he does not strike me as a libertarian, and yet he is carrying the libertarian vote. Lol
MJ do you really expect Trepid to nominate someone even more to the right as Trepid? Honestly?
Or is it that you hope he nominated you?
Personally, I think Trepid and Nathan share similar views....
Nathan I must ask these questions because I'm just curious
1. Do you generally support right-to-work laws?
2. Do you support "under God" in our Pledge?
3. Do you support more restrictions and regulations to protect against terrorist?
Thank you for taking the quiz!
Even more libertarian than democrat???? I take my vote back!!
Yeah! I was surprised by the libertarian percentage as well.
Your a moderate republican!
That's too conservative. We are socialist, remember MJ!
A true moderate folks, exactly what this congress needs. He works with anybody no matter which side you are on.
I just re took the quiz using the choose another answer.
Yes because Obama is a moderate, and he works for everyone. Sorry, I couldn't resist; I'm just joking. Don't worry Nathan I am not comparing you to Obama.
MJ, your results are a little off because you did select how important each issue is to you.
I'm not real sure about right to work laws, I'll have to do more research, I do in fact want the "under god" to stay, and in my fire classes we learn about terrorism and I'm going to tell you what they told me. You can't stop it, but you do protect
You have to select how important the things are. That and the "choose other" option dramatically change the results.
Places that are most likely to be attacked more such as places with a lot of people around at a given time, federal buildings and especially on dates that mean something, and if their have been previous attacks or threats on that building/area
On that note, do you support the Patriot Act?
Right-to-work laws generally make labor unions' power weaker.
Right to work is HORRENDOUS! It is anti worker disguised in a good name.
Sir! Please refrain from giving an opinionated answer before the soon to be VP researches the matter.
Right to worker isn't horrible. It helps people who don't want to join unions
Okay! Now the soon to be VP sees the divide in the parties.....
I agree with Zman. The government shouldn't regulate contracts.
I took the isidewith quiz like Nathan
I ended up
Mr. President you are in a party all your own.., want to join the Rent is 2 damn high! Party?
Democrats are saying "he is too conservative"
Republicans are saying "not conservative enough"
Like many of our other high positions, he is moderate. So maybe this is something both sides should accept? Do you really think you will get better?
You do! You would much rather prefer a liberal such as Beach, wouldn't you?
Of course I would. I would like the job, that's why I browbeat Vincere into quitting!!!
Sound just right to me!
You see that is what is going people's minds.
Lol ok, joking aside. Of course Nathan is not as liberal as me, but that doesn't mean I can't say yes. This is a confirmation vote, he more than meets the requirements and will serve us well.
No one is as liberal as you except for Beach....
I know, it was a joke.
That's why I still said yes. I have to be reasonable. Just like you right wingers need to be. Nathan no doubt leans right. Do you really think Trepid is going to nominate someone more to the right then Nathan?
Considering our current most liberal member impeached the previous most liberal member, Nathan should be ok. ;)
It was nothing personal nor political! Ugh
Hey zman, I think you're pretty great. ☺️✌️
Well thank you!
See everybody if Hayley thinks I'm pretty great than I definitely can't be too bad!
Zmann, I actually voted in favor of you to be Supreme Court Justice. You definitely add something to congress and the court with your passionate arguments.
You know I wouldn't let you off the hook too easy. :)
Thanks political. I did the same for you. Although that's not saying much as I even voted for Late!! ;)
I wanted to vote twice for Latethegreat!
I want to take my vote back! Lol
Even though we most definitely have our issues *looks at Late* I would not want any of you to leave he court. I think we all work well together and there is no telling who would join and what ramifications that would cause.
I think we as a unit are a well oiled machine! We all make up various parts and contribute. Whether that's the socialist Matt, me the communist, skinner and political the teabaggers, or Late the KKK member.
We all have a purpose on the court!
Lol I don't know, I'm going crazy. It's my way of saying I love you guys!
We do have a good group and Love you too z! but kkk, what the heck! If you knew my background you wouldn't say that. And Skinner...ehh, a little left of the tea party.
Awe! Behind that tough guy is a sweet little teddy bear on the inside. Lol
What about me Late? Am I too far to the left?
Once again folks, this is a confirmation. Let him know what is your problem.
I feel as if our congress is become the real congress. We can't agree on much of anything
So you voted yes?
Man, this is a tight race!
Yes we can. I've been involved in several compromises.
I'm new so idk who these people are....
He's too conservative for me.
Which means Nathan is a moderate.
Nathan isn't conservative enough more me lol
I love the results! It use to be republicans supporting Nathan's bills because of the (R). Now Independents are supporting him because of the (I).
Haha y'all are too funny.
I cant believe the republicans are giving me less support than the democrats, I lean further to the right?
They are pissed at you for abandoning the party. Why did you decide to change the designation?
Because a few of them have personal ambitions
Nathan, this comment is from more of a psychological perspective than anything. Many new you were republicans, but they probably did not know that you were a moderate. When many recognized that you switched from republican to independent many may...
I feel I wasn't conservative enough to have the (R) there and I'm not going to join a political party in real life, so I decided to be an independent
...have thought you either switched your positions. This may cause some to think that you may be not true to what republicans stand for. Since I know your positions, I know exactly where you stand on issues unlike others. I am just thinking from...
Right on!^ political parties are overrated.
I would like to propose a new rule that would remove party designation from all official VC polls.
Independent does not mean you switched views. I am an independent, but have not switched anything. I just want no connection to the Democratic Party. I'm assuming Nathan is the exact same way, just the opposite of course. Lol
I don't know why it took me so long to propose this. I despise political parties.
....except there may be some consequences such as when people start running for higher office. I think I would rather the Speaker keeping up with what party each member is as we continue this virtual congress, so there won't be chaos during election
...time. I am just thinking out loud and rambling. Forgive me.
Political parties are unnecessary. All they really do is give people less options.
Yeah E my first instinct was to vote against Nathan just to show my displeasure with him leaving the GOP. Then I realized that was immature and voted yay.
I see no reason to deny it.
Who will become Secretary of State?
We already have one
Isn't Nathan Secretary of State?
Yes I am
If that's true. I would like to express that I am interested in the position. I think I'm fit for the job since I have extensive knowledge of International politics.
Then Trepid would have to nominate someone else.
MrE of you ever need an advisor i can help
Of course. Is this an endorsement?
With all due respect to Nathan, no.
What? Why? He seems like the perfect man for the job.
I've seen him in the last few days ingratiating himself to trepid. I believe that he's too political and his ambitions in here may get in the way of progress.
I saw that too, but I think it's mostly just because he is a nice kid.
You're worried about ambition? Most of is on here especially the court and cabinet are already
Lol me and trepid are good friends, me being nice to him on here has nothing to do with me getting the nomination
