Private Military Bill

Overview

The months following the 2007 elections were tumultuous. Amidst the furor over the constitutionality of Sargon's acting presidency, there came some calls for an armed overthrow of the government. Reeling from the defeat of the 2007 Presidential Recall Election Bill, the Private Military Bill was proposed by the official opposition as, some would say, a lead up to a coup attempt. Of course, it's also entirely possible that this was just Superdude (PPP) trying to make yet another power grab on behalf of the smallest party in 2007 Parliament of AH.com.

History

Superdude (PPP) proposed abolishing the Military of AH.com and replacing it with an organization loyal to the PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPParty on August 23, 2007. The Yorkshire Socialist Party announced it was opposed to this proposal shortly afterward. A counter-proposal was later made by Flocculencio (KETWIWBP), who suggested rather than replacing the AH.com military with a single organization loyal to the PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPParty, the Parliament should instead replace it with private armies loyal to each political party. This proposal was again opposed by the Yorkshire Socialist Party, which was now joined by Ran Exilis (E) and Steffen (FFF), but was supported by Superdude (PPP) and Agentdark (E).
