I've noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born. — Ronald Reagan

When the people are being beaten with a stick, they are not much happier if it is called 'the People’s Stick.' — Mikhail Bakunin (to Karl Marx)

You're supposed to be employing the arts of diplomacy, not the ruddy great thumping sledgehammers of diplomacy. — Ardchoille

The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion [...] but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do. — Samuel P. Huntington

"Order, due to extraordinary circumstances*, I haven't been able to end the vote on time. Therefore, as to not punish others for my mistake, I'll count all the votes.

The bill has passed with 8 ayes to 4 nays, and will move on to the HoT."

"Mr. Speaker, I understand the Representative's concern, but a referendum is not necessary. The time for a fair and efficient government is now. Galatea has just concluded a lengthy and hard-fought referendum, and the people of Galatea don't want another referendum. They want change in their government."

"Mister Speaker, I applaud this body's decision, and the great speed at which the House of Tribunes has in fact been removed from our bureaucracy 'after' the passage of this bill.

Now a question: does the government intend to support Galatea's entry into the Eurozone? Does the government intend to begin the EU accession process now, or, more advisably, make its last will and testament before doing so?"

"Mr. Speaker, I thank the Honorable Representative for his question. I find it peculiar that the Member has compared joining a prosperous international union to death, but yes, the Government does support the admission of Galatea into the Eurozone and we are already beginning the process of joining the European Union."

OOC: I kinda assumed the joining process would be assumed/automatic instead of us doing something.
