DRACP- Our Government

Matre: I agree with most of the post, except for the Judiciary branch, what would it do anyway?

Hello ACP,

Just like how “Trickster” listed what communism is and how UMA will react to it I will be doing the same except for our government style; Democratic Republic.

Senate Elections Results/Rules/First Meeting

Well, the elections for Senate ended on Monday. I would like to let you all know that out of 236 comments on that post, less than 30 of them had the votes correctly. That’s really a shame. I thought you people were smarter than that. Almost all of those comments are you people campaigning or advertising for your vote, which I strictly stated was against the rules. You are all lucky I was kind enough to not disqualify you from the voting. I’m really disappointed that a lot of you did this, and next time, I will not be tolerating any of it whatsoever. No matter though, here are the results and your Senators to the Senate of the ACP!

Congratulations to all of those who won Senate! And for those of you who lost, don’t worry. Many of the ranks were decided by only one or two votes, and it’s hard to just choose a few people, but I have to listen to the votes of the people. And the people have voted! Thanks for voting everyone. This means, with all of the Senators (31 of them) plus me and Senate VP Jack, plus the leaders and a few retired legends I may or may not allow in to some meetings, we can have up to a bit over 40 people at meetings if everyone shows up.  Now, before I announce the date of the first meeting, I need to lay down a few rules and suggestions for all Senators to follow.

  1. I expect all Senators to follow the rules of ACP chat when they are on it to the best of their ability. If any Senator continually breaks the rules on chat, I will consider having him/her removed from Senate. Senator is a privilege, not a right. If you break the rules, this privilege will be taken away from you.
  2. Please come to Senate meetings with some ideas for bills handy, with a written explanation on a site that you can link us all to so we can read, debate, and vote on it. If you need an idea for a bill, ask some of the soldiers of the ranks that you represent if they have any bill ideas. Soldiers, I encourage you to approach one of your ranks’ Senators with an idea for a bill if you have one.
  3. Senators of the same rank- work together on bill ideas if you like. Actually, any amount of Senators can work together on bill ideas. Just make sure they make sense and have good reasoning behind them!
  4. Once you come up with a bill, please email it to me at bearcatfan68@yahoo.com with the bill and its’ explanation so I can make sure it makes sense before we vote on it in Senate. I’m not going to not let anyone’s vote get presented, I just want to make sure we don’t get any bills to vote on with litterally no explanation with them.

 

First Meeting

Saturday, March 5 (I’m giving you time to make bills), 2011

2:00 PM EST

1:00 PM CST

12:00 noon MST

11:00 AM PST

8 PM GMT

I hope these times work for most of everyone, and I really hope I got all those times right. Please, if someone on the site notices that they are wrong, fix them.

How meetings work

  • Once we hit the start time of the meeting, the President (me) will start off the meeting. If the President is not at the meeting, either the Senate VP (Jack) or the ACP leader (Mchappy) will conduct meetings.
  • I will have the list of bills that people e-mailed to me prior to the meeting ready, and I will choose one to begin with based off who is there. If the Senator or Senators that presented said bill are not present at the meeting, I will leave the bill and wait for the Senators to be on for the next meeting before presenting theirs.
  • While somebody is presenting and explaining a bill, DO NOT TALK. I will let people talk one or two at a time to prevent all out arguments from ensuing. If debates get too heated, I will ask them to stop talking. If they cannot do that, I will kindly have them muted for a little while.
  • The only people that should be present at a Senate meeting that are not Senators are me, Jack ( Senate VP), and the owner ranks are people that I invite in to the meetings.
  • Everyone’s vote carries the same amount of weight. This means, my vote equals one vote. Mchappy’s vote equals one vote. One of the Corporal’s senator votes’ equal one vote.

If you need a refresher further on how the Senate will work, please read my first post at https://acparmyofclubpenguin.wordpress.com/2011/01/29/senate-presidentnew-plan-for-legislative-system/. If an editor on this site could please add the parts of this post and this current post to the Senate page (please un-password protect it and make it open to the public too, we won’t be needing it to be secret), that would be very appreciated.
