Wittenberg / Foreign Affairs Recruitment
« on: March 31, 2021, 02:31:34 PM »

It is with great pleasure that I announce that the Foreign Ministry will be accepting applications for new Honorary Consuls. Recently, the ministry has seen an increasing number of individuals wishing to serve our Kingdom in their localities.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is in search of active and interested Talossans willing to share our tiny Kingdom with the rest of the world. All interested applicants should email with the following information:

1. Name (your legal birth name and Talossan name)
2. Your email, phone number, and postal address
3. A 50-word statement as to why you should be appointed as an Honorary Consul.
4. Any other important information we should know

We look forward to hearing from you! Oh, did we mention that all those appointed will receive a free certificate of appointment mailed to their address?

Wittenberg / Free Democrats of Talossa Recruitment Thread
« on: March 30, 2021, 10:53:31 PM »

Are you a new citizen interested in getting into Talossan politics? Or a long-time citizen who has never gotten into Talossan politics? Consider joining the Free Democrats of Talossa! The Free Democrats of Talossa is the largest political party in the nation, and membership in the party is open to all Talossan citizens!

We believe...

Talossan culture built by its citizens, not the Government.

N naziun sanc glheþ, c'è 'n naziun sanc coraziun; The state should make, and promote, the widest possible use of the Talossan language.

Talossans should be free to enjoy whatever cultural aspect of our nation that they please.

The enactment of the people's will as demonstrated in the Ranked Choice Referendum.

In slimming down the government: cut down on the number of unnecessary departments, bureaus, and Ministries.

The removal of Wisconsin law from El Lexhátx; Talossan Law without foreign interference!

All interested citizens please feel free to message me with any questions about our party, or how to join us!

To the members of the Cosa and the Senate...

The Foreign Ministry has continued to advise the Cabinet on which Micro- and Macro- national activities may be of interest to our Kingdom. For example, the ministry was able to advise the Cabinet on which micronational forums were useful and which were not. The Foreign Ministry has also proposed a policy platform to the Cabinet related to this topic. The new platform has yet to be formally written, however it has been discussed and will be written soon.

Azul, fellow Maritiimi-Maxhestians!

As Maximally Magnificent Majordomo, I am now issuing the Maritiimi-Maxhestic Assembly Call, as required by the Respond to the Call Act (after delay).

If you wish to claim a seat in the 18th Convocation of the Assembly of Maritiimi-Maxhestic, or designate a seat to another named Maritiimi-Maxhestian, please do so in this thread.

The deadline to claim a seat is 1 August, 2020.

Wittenberg / Re: The most important Senäts election in years
« on: July 17, 2020, 09:20:05 AM »
As some of you may have heard the speech written by my opponent for the MM Senatorial Election, I would like to comment on a few things that were said, specifically about myself.

While S:reu Plätschisch has indeed successfully authored many OrgLaw reforms, he stated that I have not written nor passed any whatsoever, and that I have completely failed at my duties as both Grand General Secretary, and as M3. During my time in both the provincial government, and national government, there have been various factors that prohibited me from doing so (such as my military service, including job training and multiple short deployments). While this has hindered me in the past, I have always made an effort to notify my colleagues that I would be unable to serve. However, while serving the provincial government of MM, I have also continuously served in the Schiva cabinet, dealing with multiple cases as Attorney-General, and the commander of the Royal Talossan Air Corps, though, mainly in an honorary capacity.

Another point that S:reu Plätschisch failed to mention is that our current Grand General Secretary, S:reu Seguxhameir d'Üc, has been rogue his entire time since his appointment. Although I do take personal responsibility and admit that I have missed the opening of our Assembly, the blame for the lack of government activity in MM cannot be placed solely on me.

 The main takeaway from this is that regardless of what life throws at me, I always make an effort to Talossa, and this is exactly how I intend to proceed as Senator of MM. In addition to this, I would like to make it known that I have never missed a vote in the Cosa, and even when I was away from Talossa, I ensured that my votes were still submitted. While not authoring new reforms, I continuously ensure that my voice is heard through my votes. As Senator, this will allow me to have a greater impact on the legislative processes of both MM, and Talossa as a whole.

Wittenberg / Re: Announcing the League of Centre Conservatives
« on: July 10, 2020, 11:48:52 AM »
Well, my question is what does the LCC intend to achieve that the AMP could not? And while on the topic, what really were some of the major accomplishments of the AMP?
My experience with "selling" AMP to voters was that nobody could figure out what to make of it. It's platform was essentially a list of things that I personally wanted, and while I am very grateful to have gotten almost 20 votes in two elections, it was not a very sustainable way to run a party. By my assessment, the AMP brand quickly became associated with idiosyncratic policies that no one besides me could really support; that is fine for a think tank (which is how AMP still exists, by the way) but not really for a party.

For example, a major success of AMP was, in my estimation, prodding King John into a somewhat higher level of activity; I focused a lot of energy on the message "The Monarchy is great, but this guy has to step it up or go away." However, it was difficult to hold a stable coalition of voters because Monarchists don't like it that you are trying to sack the King willy-nilly and people who lean FreeDem don't like it that you are staunchly defending the Monarchy.

Another major success of AMP was finally getting the new OrgLaw through. However, the same problem arises; some people thought it went to far and some thought it didn't go far enough. Of course, this suggests the AMP should be supported by Talossa's moderate contingent, and I suspect that's where most of it's support was coming from, but even that was not a sure thing. AMP did not serve up the usual MRPT fare; some of the platform was quite conservative, some was quite not conservative, and a lot of it was just weird.

To recap the rest of AMP's accomplishments:
-A lot of legislation that reduces bureaucracy and (I hope) increases activity in several ways
-Our Ministers were fairly active
-To pat myself on the back a little bit, the AMP Manifestos and some of my writings in La S'chinteia were some top-notch thought leadership in their own right, even if you disagree with me

That seems like a good list of accomplishments to me. AMP was right for the moment. But the inherent instability of its support base, coupled with the collapse of all other conservative parties, convinced me of the need for a new party that more explicitly opposes proposals that I (and a lot of others) really do not like, and that does not have AMP's baggage.
You claim that nobody could get behind your idiosyncratic views, and by admitting this, why not just support an existing party and align your views with theirs, as opposed to creating a whole new party, knowing the following won’t be large? Having been a member of the AMP, I can’t say that I ever truly knew what EXACTLY the party stood for. Yes, I can read manifestos all day every day and I do indeed admit that the writing was goos, but if nobody can truly understand or envision the type of government the AMP (and now the LCC) is trying to create, what’s the point?

You also mention nudging the King to become more active. Quite frankly, I saw no more/less activity than when before the AMP initially gained its votes. I think everyone, even outside of the AMP/LCC, wants the King to be more active both on and off Witt.

I’m in no way dissing the party, but these are things I’ve thought about personally, having been in the inside.
