Seems suggestions are running out.

...I will probably wait a little bit to submit this one, all things considered.

Suggesting a sensationalist and bruised-ego-driven proposal not be submitted? Seems pretty sound suggesting.

More than halfway to quorum!

Edit: The second half is going slower than expected, despite stamps being fired out. :/

So... this would gut an argument in Commend NewTexas. That means Commend NewTexas becomes a House of Cards! What will we do now?! It's an astonishing calamity! Oh the humanity! The arguments in Commend NewTexas is are going to be invalid! The whole system is going to come down!

Only way it's an actual problem is if you throw so many histrionics at it that the noise around it makes it a problem, not the actual thing.

The leader's actions, while I hope and believe are temporary lack of control and judgment, are not conducive to a contributing nation, we forgive him (period).

This is one of the most disturbing and disgusting votes I have personally seen as a member of the Security Council. Such votes makes Nations such as mine question whether membership in the august body can be ethically justified. Repealing Commendation of Texas, a large, active Defender Region with a long and illustrious history in Nation States is ridiculous and improper. This proposal has been put forward by a well-known raider in an attempt to discourage and deter defender regions.

I cannot help but notice that many of you have been swayed by this miscreants ravings. I urge you, in view of the lies perpetrated by the presenter and the long, glorious, history of Texas as a Defender, to change your vote!
