As you may or may not know, recently user progressivedem got about 9 people together for a mock Congress to practice parliamentary procedure.

The members were, sadly, barely active.

But Faux parliament still interests me greatly! So I am going to attempt to re-create the DDO congress, this time with 25 members!

To more accurately depict the current US house of representatives, we are going to have 12 slots for Republicans, 9 slots for democrats, and 4 slots for third party members.

This will be basically a game of parliamentary procedure. I will be the first speaker of the house, until everyone understands the rules/procedures. Then speakers will be elected normally.

Here is the official signup sheet:

Republicans:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.
11.
12.

Democrats
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.

Third-party
1. Tylergraham95
2.
3.
4.

This is a fun way to practice bill writing, and parliamentary style debate.

But seriously, I'd rather just debate/talk in the forums about the stuff that interests me. The majority of political issues are just... boring.

^ Agreed

Every attempt to create a mock DDO Congress has been doomed to failure. There have been at least 3 attempts to make a DDO mock Congress in recent memory that have crashed and burned, and even the run im running right now in the misc section (Democracy DDO) has pretty much ground to a halt after just a single quarter.
