"This is a waste of time" said Aleksandra, rolling her eyes. "These rights were already cemented by the Human Government's parent organisations before unification. Are you going to ask us to re-ratify the unilateral nuclear disarmament treaties as well? I call a motion that this new bill be dismissed out of hand and the esteemed representative be fined a token sum for wasting senate time."
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

The types the welcomes backroom deals are generally the unsavory type. There is greater secrecy in places like that than in smug sophisticated ones. However if it is a simple meet-and-greet and a general discussion of views and not any, uh, less than savory deals, then an upper-class club should be fine. True enough I suppose. I don't really see how their views are Socialist anyway. They seem to favor an open market and free-rights.

The Cole-Bert Coalition aren't any major problem. I mean they run ads targeting similar demographics as mine, so they are an enemy for that reason alone, but it's not like he didn't make the same points you were probably thinking at some point. They are easily enough dealt with anyway, a party like that is solely dependent on it's leader. No one else is capable of stepping into his position and if he should lose reelection, be convicted of some crime, or meet with an untimely end than it would be the end of the party. Having smaller parties around helps keep us balanced. It gives us a point of reference as to what is too extreme. Without them, we'd probably lose our bearings and get corrupted- B.B//


Baron grimaced at his response, read it over another two times, and put on a false smile and sent it along. I really wanted to get some wings and look at some bodacious ta-tas, he thought. But it's better to be upfront about places like that being better for the dark. One learns these things in politics eventually. He leaned over to his aide, a man named Arundo don Richards, and asked, "What do you know about this body guard I am supposed to be assigned?"

Richards, with a slight look of panic, answered, "I.. dunno. I'll find out and I'll see if I can find them anyway. They should be protecting you at least." So I at least can keep this job, as difficult as it is... it would be better than being the an aide to the Machinators.

Baron, lost in his own thoughts, didn't quite catch the proposed bill, but he stood up to vote anyway. "Being as I didn't quite hear the proposal as I was lost in thought about something," bo-da-cious ta-tas!, "I'm going to have to vote. Eney Meney Miney Mo." He pointed into the air as he pretended to select a vote. The People's Bill, eh? This kid may be more trouble than I thought. "We vote with Aleksandra to dismiss this as she previously stated," he finished as he sat down again, and shot off another email.

Aleksandra smiled as someone agreed with her but narrowed her eyes as she noticed several members of the house busily communicating in secret on their laptops and organisers.

Mark smirks.

"Would you rather these rights be forgotten in the coming years? It's important our new goverment set standards for old nations to follow. Socialist votes Aye."

"That's beside the point, Alek, new senate, new rules, new laws must be passed, as the Socialist have said." Christopher, angry at the woman then stated, "Maybe we should reconsider the women in government law as well? After all the disrespect you have shown my bill; which clearly is necessary as the Human Governments parent organizations don't make the laws for this new government, that's our job, thus such a bill must be ratified in our new senate; is out of line, considering we have PLENTY of time to get to what YOU feel is 'important'."

Martin spoke quickly, " In many countries, before the unification of Earth, they lacked these rights. Some countries didn't even follow the Geneva Conventions. Ratifying this would show that the unified government is for civil rights for all people. "

He read the emails from Baron, typing back;

I'd suggest changing your vote immediately, Baron. If we vote against this, it might heavily impact our popularity with all peoples. Let Aleksandra and her friends go down on their own ship.

As for the meeting, I personally hate the stuffy type of people. If one cannot go the same places as a Lower class citizens, one cannot win their hearts. It is fine if we go to such a place, but I don't believe I'll be very interested in the show.

As for the Cole-Bert's, I'm considering weither or not they're much of a threat. They do rely on their leader, but killing him would be messy, not so much for Vladimir. A few bribed police would make sure the patsy gets jailed for the death of Vlad, but Christopher might be harder to get.

Anyway, I'll follow you out once this session is over.

"Well, if you insist on making this a circus, then so be it." said Aleks, privately laughing at the response she had provoked.
"I propose a bill entitled 'Thou shalt not kill' I think its content is self explanatory. We should be a good way through the new testament by next month and then perhaps we can start trawling through the Vedas, hmm?"

Update!
The People's Bill has been passed and is now being reinforced by the Human Senate. New bill proposals are being accepted.

Martin stood, satisfied that he could now present the revised bill, " I propose this bill called the Three Branches, Revised Edition. "

Three Branches, Revised Edition

The government shall be structured into three branches. These branches' names shall be named the Executive, Legistlative, and Judiciary.

The Executive shall be headed by a President. This President shall be re-elected every four years. He may veto a bill that is approved by the Senate, forcing it back to the Senate. However, if 4/5ths of the Senate agree upon the bill, it will still pass.

The Legistlative shall be made up of the Senate. The Senate shall remain as it is, made of 500 Senators elected by the populance every four years, to coincide with the re-election of the President.

The Judiciary shall be made of multiple courts, headed most prominently by the Supreme Court. The Judiciary shall handle all criminal cases, and also determine what is and is not allowable if the law is too vague on the matter. The Supreme Court shall consist of thirteen Judges, each having their position for life. These Judges must first be both nominated in the Senate, and achieve a majority win before being approved by the President.

Martin spoke again, " As well, I also think that after this bill is voted upon, that we can vote upon who is the Secretary of the Senate, and figure out who is the first Speaker of the Senate. "

"Aleksandra, its obvious you have little respect for me. Personally I could care less what you believe in me, you could think of me as dirt, but let it go down on record that the Cole-Bert Coalition is taking the high road and letting the conflicts you are trying to get out of me, go, you are forgiven." Christopher smiled and winked at her as he sat back listening to the next proposal.

Christopher glanced it over and stated, "Well, the president is the only thing im bothered by, but in due time we can edit that a bit. For now i agree that structure is important. The Cole-Bert Coalition votes Aye."

Subject: Meeting?

Main:

Would you like to have a face to face meeting? I've dug up a basic bio on you(surprisingly difficult), and you sound decently trustworthy. Not trustworthy enough to stake my life on, but trustworthy enough for a meeting. I'd like to discuss our political agendas, and the small threat of the Machine freaks. Bring guards if you wish, I'd advise it. We would be meeting in a public place. Could you make it to the Lower Library in Indetia? It's a small brown building with a sign on it, clearly marked. Ignore any beggars, their quick to rob. Please reply soon.

John


John grins as he snaps his laptop shut and hauls himself up off the wall. Wearing a pair of tattered jeans and a plain t-shirt, he blended in fairly well in the districts south of the Canal. His friends openly wore their side arms. No reason for anyone too interested to get too close. He steps into the brown building, underneath the mesh-covered sign that read, 'LOWER LIBRARY'. He walks past the receptionist with a wink, and she giggles. Going behind the desk, he fishes a key out of his pocket, opens a thick door and steps into a comfy conference room. The long, wooden, table is lined with twelve padded chairs. He sits down at the head of the table, and his bodyguards sit in half of the other chairs. He opens his laptop and yawns.

He wanted a cup of coffee.

The speed at which the activity and argument were progressing bothered Baron, as he stood to give his vote. "Enough bickering!" he bellowed, getting the attention of mainly the Cole-Bert delegates. "The bill at hand is more important than the previous bills. Issues like this are why we suggested the SMAESA in the first place. Now, back to business. We vote 'Aye'."

Subject: Politics

The people are easy enough to sway, especially with an ambiguous position such as the one Aleksandra took. Making political 'allies', building favors, and having a general political good-will around here works wonders in getting things done. The people are easy enough to please with a couple of special interest groups. Besides, I had figured the bill would pass without the votes of my party. It was a gamble, I'll just have to see how the dice lands.

That is true, but there are other ways to get rid of people. Political Scandal, and framing. Though, talking about such things should be saved until after it is determined if they are useful or not. Charismatic and Idealist leaders like Christophers are easy enough to get on the good side of. Vladimir, on the other hand, is not well liked probably even by some within his party. So you are right about that.

About the meeting. I'd like to make a stop somewhere out of the way first. Bring whatever bodyguards you have/trust. We're going to meet Elder. -B.B.//


One down, one to go, Baron thought as he moved to reply to the next email.

Subject: RE: Meeting?

Will there be tea and scones? I am unsure whether to be pleased or upset that it is hard to find information on me. I must really get those girls are my headquarters to keep up with their propagandizing, or else I'm gonna have to smack me a 'ho. I've found that there are very few people trustworthy enough to stake your life on. "Keep your friends close, your enemies closer, and treat friends as if they were enemies." Caution can never be taken to far, as long as one keeps paranoia in check. Duly-noted about the beggars. Is it alright if I bring a guest? I can vouch for them. At the very least, they aren't a political enemy. If your network is as good as I believe it to be you already suspect, if not know, who it is I wish to bring.

A Very Merry Un-Birthday Wish from,
Representative Baron, Baron Von Victor, III; Is a little teapot.//

Subject: Bring Him

Main: I'll take an educated guess. It's most likely going to be a party representative or leader, I'm guessing...The Caretakers? Martin Black? Anyway, it don't matter. Bring whomever, as long as they pose no threat. No tea and scones. It's not a good idea to grandiose yourself in front of people who you support. Makes them feel small.

Oh, and there was plenty of information. Just not very much of it actually useful in building a solid opinion.

Any tricky business will get you killed.
