Did we eliminate the inheritance tax? If not can I propose legislation to have it eliminated.
Also can I propose legislation that makes all college applications color blind (ending all affirmative action)
I just joined what spots are open?
Welcome! Yes everyone is welcome in congress
If you get a chance please take the isidewith.com quiz and post your results
You are automatically now a congressman. You have the ability to vote on and propose legislation.
Well hopefully tomorrow I will be looking for candidates to be an alternate supreme court justice

Oh and for Senate I sided with Kurt bills mostly and like 25% Amy klobichar however u spell that...
I was like 52% democrat and something like 46% libertarian I believe ibwas about ewual with green and Republicans around 38-40 and 15% socialist
I'm still pretty new and I feel not many know my stances on things so here's a link to my results. www.isidewith.com/results/321648739
Glad to have you General!
General I like those results!
Here are my results from a while back.
Thx for the welcome and support guys. Now tell me what qualifies as bad results? Or do you mean you liked them cuz their similar to yours?
They were similar! I had 97% republican 82% libertarian 42% Democrat 24% Green 3% Socialist
No such thing as bad results unless you were like 100% with the Neo-Nazi Party, I may have a problem at that point
Hail him with bullets and disgrace
I look forward to our long lasting mutual relationship of professionalism implemented into VC.
Glad we're similar MJ but it's good to get to know the other side( s) of things too.
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!
Atleast one republican understands this! It doesn't matter if your side is the one with more, it has to be balanced.
Hey I vote yes!
Exactly, we need a big Congress. I mean 435 should be the goal. ;)
It would be cool if we could get the exact number of congressmen from each state!
Haha I've already carved a serious chunk out of my state's numbers...
Now that she's stated her views can you guys please say why you voted no?
Remember this is a confirmation not an election
Just switched to "Yea." That's what I was waiting for.
I completely understand not wanting to vote yay for someone you don't know if I didn't know her I would have done the same
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
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
allying with Brazil and India would be the best hope for our economic future.
Just for statistics reasons, what party are you?
isidewith.com helps us out but isn't required
Democrat. I'll share the results of the quiz once I am able to take it!
Congrats, I look forward to working with you
I like your idea of generally decreasing but also supporting allies and strong and rising economic countries
Thank you both for your support, I really appreciate it!
Why are all the republicans voting no?
Because they hate women!
I don't know her
I voted yes.
Yes, we need more females!
I agree especially when it comes to foreign policy
AFly not to be impatient but when are you going to post my cap and trade bill?
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.
Great thank you
The better question is who are you?
He is Ronald Reagan
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
Oh good point! How will we stop voter fraud!
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.
Agreed am. Now who is behind the Ronald Reagan account?
Is there anyone here from Illinois, or Chicago?
Ron! What up!
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.
RonaldReagan, are you really somebody with two accounts or are you the only account to one user?
I think mj said it was a second account once.
I assume it's another user. We have a president Obama troll as well
I call a motion to launch an investigation, is anyone willing to second?
I don't know how we would do an investigations but sure
Okay, Matt, you are now head of your investigation. Please Skype message me any ideas on how to conduct this investigation.
I'll second that.
Sounds like a reasonable investigation. However, that being said, I'm not sure how you could legally go about finding out that information. Although perhaps an email to Tony asking about IP address registration locations night be in order. Maybe.
I have never seen her here
I don't know him so I don't think he's qualified
Look up top
I am not going to blindly approve someone, who I hardly know.
I don't know much about her. Tell me more.
Thank you sir.
I haven't heard of him before. What are your views?
Octopus is a she....
She just posted above
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
Alright, but she should talk more
Mr president, have you considered my idea of a security council?
I think its a good idea matt
What is this I hear about a security council?
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
That sounds interesting. Good idea IMO
But shouldn't you add homeland security too?
Yeah secretary of homeland security as well
We would never get enough people approved! Lol
What do you mean zman?
Sorry, I didn't refresh so I didn't know it would use the same positions. I thought we would have to get new people lol.
I like that idea. It's not really adding anything but just ensuring our leaders talk to each other.
For example, what do we do if Saudi Arabia either severs relations or severely freezes them?
