Latinian Constitutional Referendum
« on: January 22, 2009, 10:58:26 AM »
OOC: I though it'd be awesome to allow you guys to act as the LU's citizens voting in the referendum. All I ask is for you guys to take Latinia's character into concideration and to vote seriously. Latinia is France and Italy combined, so most of the population is either French or Italian. But both France and Italy have historically had opposing minorities(The Catalans,Basque,Provencal,and Coriscans in France, and the Romantsh,Friulians,and Sardinians in Italy). France has been a unitary state since the Napoleonic Era,while Italy has historically been fragmented into city-states. Italy has only been united since 1861 and has only been unitary since the end of WW2. After you vote please leave an IC comment to explain your vote, be Latinians!  :-D

EDIT: BTW also take the LU's leadership and economic needs into concideration.

OCC: I will be rping as a extremly nationalist Latinian. :evil:

I believe federalism is weak, inorder to create a cohesive and unique Latnian culture we must implement a Unitary government to eliminate the petty regionalism that has historically plauged nations. The Latin races must combine the strongest parts of their cultures into a new unified Latinian culture!

I chose a strong central government.

Empress Braganza speaks her mind,"


I personally believe we should develop a federal system with a strong central government modeled after that of the United States. This system has proven to be the most effective for nations like our own, nations that harbor a multitude of ethnic groups. I don't believe a Swiss style federation is strong enough to maintain order in a nation that plans to be active in world affairs. Latinia has a young and unstable economy therefore we must have a central government to preserve our socialist system, so that we can make the necessary policies to develop a strong nation.

"Well, look at it this way," says an International Relations Major in Normandy as he cast his vote, his wife along side him, "Look at what a balanced and free strong federal government has done for the Confederate Republics, with the right leadership and delegation of some powers to more localized governments, they jumped that entire region forward 25 years in just a fifth of that time. I don't see why it would not be just as effective in Latinia."
