This is phase two.

Currently we have 44 new issues that are up for voting. However, before we start voting on that we must decide what we wish to remove. We have 43 "Big issues."
The max we get is 50 spots.

Therefore, we must vote on what needs to die.
Let's aim for getting 17/50 spots free. That means we must eliminate ten of these issues. The top ten voted will be removed, then the third phase can start.

ALL VOES MUST BE IN BOLD. You don't have to vote for ten things, whatever you want gone, please list it.

Keep arguing to a minimum.

I think there is a problem in that some people want one thing to be eliminated because there is redundancy. So for example I would want either Welfare or Social Programs to be removed, because they are pretty similar. However I wouldn't want both removed. However, with this voting system, enough people can choose welfare and social programs so that both are removed.

Obviously not everyone is gonna be happy. However you guys have to realize that juggle isn't gonna do this on their own. It's like an election, not 100% are gonna be happy.

I think we should change it to being able to state what parts we agree with and which parts we dont.

This makes 30 issues remain with the capacity to put 20 more.

Go to "edit profile" then "issues" then look to the right side and you will see "comments".
