Description: No Government has the right to veiw a law abiding citizen in the security of their own home, yet the WA allows nations to plant Orwellian cameras in the homes of any and all who live within it's national boundaries.

Governments who use these cameras argue that without them, security would be threatened and the stability of their regime would be in jeapordy. A stable nation should have no need for such a system!

This proposal, if passed, would allow citizens to act and voice their opinions as they wish in the comfort of their own home. This can only be a good thing, and a great victory, for free speech.


Orwell is a RL reference, and this proposal does nothing.

I suppose the argument could be made that 'Orwellian' has become a word of its own.

Unemployment Benefits

A resolution to reduce income inequality and increase basic welfare.


Category: Social Justice
Strength: Mild
Proposed by: Edbb

Description: TODAY, I am submitting a proposal that would increase employment and ultimately boost the confidence of so many unemployed.

The plan clearly outlines that no one making less than $350,000 will see a tax increase. This money will help insure many unemployed a right to good quality health care and help provide for their families.

The plan significantly cuts taxes for Middle-Class citizens, and provides relief for suffering families.

We are aware of the Small Business owners who create our jobs and lift our economy. They will see a minor tax cut as well.

Lolwut? Methinks branding due to $.

I think it's been decided that '$' can be used as an international currency symbol.

I don't think so as it stands for Dollar and that is only in II, not in the WA. In the WA use of Currency tags is looked down on, if not illegal due to other nations not having the same kind of money.

Just because you disagree with a proposal doesn't make it silly or illegal. Really the thread on Jolt was far better quality.

Oh and have you ever heard of moving?

Description: Publicly-funded health care is a form of health care insurance to meet the cost all or most health care needs from a publicly managed fund.

Usually this is under some form of democratic accountability, the right of access to which are set down in rules applying to the whole population.

This distinguishes it from other forms of private medical insurance the rights of access to which are subject to contractual obligations between an insurer (or his sponsor) and an insurance company which seeks to make a profit by managing the flow of funds between funders and providers of health care services.

Approvals: 2 (Zanemia, Rainbow Isles)

Status: Lacking Support (requires 49 more approvals)

Voting Ends: Thu Jun 4 2009

That's not a bad definition, but what do you plan to do with that definition?

Right of captured criminals

A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.


Category: Human Rights
Strength: Significant
Proposed by: Dunczton

Description: This gives all criminals in all member nations the right to have a fair trial and a lawyer. It does not matter if a certain country atuomatically kills their criminals before trial or after inprisonment.This proposal will change those laws so that they may be given th trial, but the judges may chose execution as punishment. This also effects the hiring of judges, they may not be pulled of the street and said that they are judges.They must be elected. This also effects torture, torture may be a punishment, not a way t get information.This will lead to having our prison have the right people instead of an innocent bystander.


Wait.......what? I need a cryptologist to figure this out.

Far more importantly, Article 1 can constintute an ideological ban. And I don't think all these articles fit under the single category, either, do they?

Prevention of Privatisation
A resolution to develop industry around the world.

Category: Advancement of Industry
Area of Effect: Environmental Deregulation
Proposed by: James Bluntus

Description: My resolution is to prevent the privatisation of government assets when it isn't in the interest of the people.

The WA recognises that privatisation causes higher prices, reduced job opportunities and less reliabilty in the industry that is privatised.

The WA relises that it needs to do something to moniter the individual cases to prevent unsatifactory proposals getting passed without a WA review. I therefore propose that we form the International Privatisation Regulation Council. This Council will oversee the handling of every privatisation of government assets.

This Resolution doesn't prohibit privatisation but it assure that every person gets a say in the privatision, not just the elected representives. Every case has to go through the parliament and if passed has to go to a referendum to be voted on by the people of that country.


Approvals: 0
Status: Lacking Support (requires 51 more approvals)
Voting Ends: Sat Jun 6 2009


This is NOT 'Environmental Deregulation'...

The Big Six

A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.


Category: International Security


Strength: Strong


Proposed by: FlagCena465

Description: With an increase in international wars and battles, I suggest that we vote for a league of six big nations to watch over four regions per Big Six member. If a war break out, the Big Six member who is watching over that region can step in and diffuse any conflict.
So what happens if a war breaks out in one of the 50,006 regions not watched by one of these Big Six nations?

Citizen's Rights

Category: Human Rights
Strength: Strong
Proposed by: Louis Van Boxel Woolf

Description: Noting, that a detailed resolution/proposal has yet to define exactly how far rights should go and what they are.
Accepting, that this is needed urgently to avoid confusion amongst nations over what exactly rights are and citizens of countries will suffer without knowing exactly what their rights are and may even come to physical harm if Civil Rights are outlawed or unheard of.
Therefore, this resolution recommends the following measures:
OBSERVATION AND SURVEILLANCE
Surevillance Cameras ARE allowed, but clearly visible warning signs must be placed around the site thay are in. Concealed/disguised Surveillance Cameres are not allowed, due to the fact the Taxpayer pays for this public space and has the right to know whether they are being viewed or not. Surveillance Cameras SHOULD be allowed for sale to the General Public, but they cannot point directly into people's houses, gardens or property. The comapanies who supply Surveillance Cameras should be heavily regulated.
CUSTODY AND POLICE RIGHTS
The right to remain silent must be told to all people who have been arrested but not convicted and they should be able to exercise this right at all times. An independent Police Body should be set up to review the conditions of Jails, and this body should also review police tactics on an annnual basis, it wall also investiagte any complaints about Police Brutality and take the neccesary action.
JUDICIAL SYSTEMS
Mindful, that justice systems which work with a Jury are usually fairer and more succesful, so this will be implemented in all WA nations. Should the accused wish, they should have the right to say the Press should not be present.
PRESS
Acknowleding, that the private life of people or celebrities must be able to be kept private, so the Press must stay 50 meteres (55 yards) from celebrities they are "tracking." Obscene photographs (completly nude, bikin's or swimming trunks on do not count as nude) cannot be published.
VIOLENCE
At all times self - defence should be taken in to account in a court case. The Government cannot: Intimidate, hurt or opress their people/opposition. If this happens a WA commite will take immediate action.
RACISM
Political Parties with their polocies based on racism or hatred should be outlawed. Racism can count as hurtful messages or objects likely to cause panic (knives, guns) sent through post and messages sent via forums or e - mail, as well as physical abuse and verbal abuse. It is the person's right to report this immediatley and action to be taken.
CHILDREN'S RIGHTS
Children's rights, teachers and heads have the right to search children if they suspect they are carrying a wheapon, an indpendent body should be set up to tackle hurtful teachers in schools. The pupil's right to answer back shall be held dear.
WHEAPON RIGHTS
Everybody should have the right to carry a weapon (apart from under 18's or the mentally unstable), all weapon's should be registred though and any mis use of it result in a hefty jail sentence.
DRUGS
All recreational drugs to be pronounced legal as more people die in cars than a drug overdose, this will also stop gangsters making profit out of selling drugs.

Mr. Secretary, we have the Charter of Civil Rights already. I also note a possible category violation in which I find that this may be best fit in the Moral Decency category.

You're wrong, the only correct category for this one is the "Illegal" category. The clauses about recreational drug use and gun control make this a textbook example of a proposal which tries to do too much and ends up stretching over several categories

It does have a misleading title though. On to the next one:

More Bullet Control

Category: Gun Control
Decision: Tighten
Proposed by: Artelle

Description: 1. bullets will cost $75 each.
2. every bullet sold will have a number registered to the consumer.
3. work to eliminate the sale of hand gun bullets.
4. bullets can only be sold to someone with proper mental health, proper eye sight, and between the ages of 25 and 67.

Potentially illegal because of the currency used.

Repeal "Reduction of Abortion Act"

A proposal to repeal a previously passed resolution


Category: Repeal


Resolution: #44


Proposed by: FlagThe Animal Union

Description: WA Resolution #44: Reduction of Abortion Act (Category: Social Justice; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: The Reduction of Abortion Act shall be struck out null and void.

DISGUSTED at the fact that these religious whack-Os are taking control over a woman's body;

REVOLTED at the fact that these religious whack-Os are sexist;

APPALLED at the fact that these religious whack-Os do not believe in gender equality.

Thus, this declares:

1. No WA nation shall have the right to declare abortion legal or illegal, regardless of beliefs;

2. No WA nation shall start an abortion reduction programme;

3. All WA nations shall have to accept that abortion is not murder; and

4. Declares that nothing in this repeal act shall be ignored.
Illegal, contains new legislation.

Arm the kids

A resolution to tighten or relax gun control laws.


Category: Gun Control
Decision: Tighten
Proposed by: Haosia

Description: It’s all too often that you see a child beaten and attacked by a bully, then seeing the bully walk away unharmed.
We need to give kids protection from all things bad. You see a man look at you, shoot him, you see the local bully, no need to shoot, he will crap himself before you can pull the trigger.
Not all weapons have to be given to kids; if I saw a kid with a RPG I would be very surprised to see him without a chick. All I'm saying is that poor kids are getting the crap beaten out of them, if they had, say a taser they would have half as much power compared to a mini-gun.


Doesn't do jack shit! My response to first reading it was: :palm:

Not to mention, it should be a proposal to relax gun control laws, not tighten them. It makes no sense to make a proposal that tightens gun control laws, and then say your proposal will allow kids to own guns. And yeah, I agree : :palm:

Biological Warfare Act
A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.

Category: International Security
Strength: Strong
Proposed by: Mi Co Li

Description: AKNOWLEGING that war can be declared and commenced in the blink of an eye.

OBSERVING that most countries have no more that one form of warfare.

FRIGHTENED by the fact that any aggressive nation could easily take over any weaker nation with little warfare options.

EMPHASIZES the need for biological warfare to be a warfare option for all nations with a population of under 100 million.

REQUESTS that all member nations using biological warfare have ALL equipment tested annually.

ASSURES that no member nation is to in any way use biological warfare on another member nation.

RESTRICTS biological warfare to defence NOT attack.


Approvals: 0
Status: Lacking Support (requires 52 more approvals)
Voting Ends: Sun Jun 7 2009


Biological weapons for defence?!? Bloody stupid!


War! It's Always the Same
A resolution to develop industry around the world.

Category: Advancement of Industry
Area of Effect: Labor Deregulation
Proposed by: Mahalamistan

Description: My nation of Mahalamistan has hit an economic downturn as it has with many other nations on our planet. Industry is flourishing but it never seems to be enough. I Believe that opening new territory to house global industry would be a great idea in increasing everyones Nations economy allowing for a much greater number of industrial buildings to be in place. As you may know a great threat to my region is the nation of Ohlmannation who has been terrorizing our industry for quite some time. So here is our chance if we all band together in War against Ohlmannation we can have all of its territory for industrial purposes plus the war will open job opportunities for those who have been laid off work.

Voting for this proposal is an agreement to stand behind Mahalamistan in direct battle against Ohlmannation for an industrial revolution.

Voting against this proposal is an agreement to stand behind Ohlmannation in defense of their territory.

Not voting at all will leave you entirely out of this war.


This is our last chance at an economic upheaval.

Approvals: 0

Status: Lacking Support (requires 52 more approvals)

Well, that's a "creative" (but probably still illegal) use of the category!

Illegal for branding, anyway, and for its effects being optional (the section that I've placed in red type here...) as well.

To toss my tuppence in on the previous post......

Biological weapons. For either defense or offense biological weapons make no sense. They are indiscriminate in their application, and just downright immoral. There is no way, no how, that Grays Harbor could support any use of biologcal weaponry for any reason. In fact, should biological weapons be deployed, we would be of a mind to ally ourselves with the nation they were deployed against just to register our displeasure with the deploying nation. And by "registering our displeasure" I mean by affixing notes of protest to the nosecones of cruise missiles. We would also cut off all exports of chocolate and coffee to the offending nation, by blockade if neccessary.

A declaration of war as a WA proposal? The nation proposing this should be publically spanked for abusing the WA and submitting this.
