Today I’ve got this Issue on my Nationstates (nationstates.net)
Dude, Where’s My Elected Representative?
A recent survey of MPs in NATIONSNAME revealed that only 50% of them actually live in the ridings that they represent.
I’ve encountered with 3 choice
1. “This is a disgrace!” shouts street protester and irate bird farmer Milhouse RELIGION, whilst launching some sort of squishy projectile at your front door with a handheld catapult. “How is someone who lives in Northern NATIONSNAME supposed to have any understanding of how people in Southern NATIONSNAME live? My MP lives hundreds of miles away from the good honest folk he’s claiming to represent. Frankly, it’s an insult to the electorate. The government must force elected representatives to live in the areas they’re supposed to represent, or kick them out of office!”
2. “This is a democracy, remember?” argues Paul Nutter, who was elected to represent the rural fishing folk of ANIMAL-by-the-Sea, despite living in CAPITAL. “I may not live in the rural wilderness right now, though I’ll probably live there one day. But that doesn’t mean I don’t know anything about these places. I mean, I do have access to Kwikipedia, after all! Forcing me to resign is a slap in the face to the good people of ANIMAL-by-the-Sea and an insult to democracy itself!”
3. “There’s always room for compromise,” suggests noted centrist politician, Stefanie Foster, who is known for attending as many government meetings as possible. “Obviously we need to have our politicians be knowledgeable about the areas they’re representing, but we also can’t deny them a right to choose their own place of residence. How about we instead compel all politicians to educate themselves about their chosen ridings? Force them to study the area’s history, culture, and languages and actually spend some time there. Then, test them! Give them an examination to pass to prove they know their stuff! If they fail, then they can’t run in that riding. After all, a little bit of knowledge never did anyone any harm.”
4. Dismiss the issue
Option 1. sounds nice so I choose it.
The result saids ‘Translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates.’
In result, my nation get a boost of this qualities.
Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index 1.5%
Kickbacks Per Hour 1.4%
Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index 1.1%
And decline in this qualities
Percentage Of Bribes Refused 0.05%
Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating 0.12%
Martin Luther King, Jr. Units 0.34%
Quips Per Hour 0.34%
Diebold Election Inking Scale 1.4%
This choice is crap.
