Salutations my fellow Asgardians,

It is tradition in my Fiancé’s country to celebrate Christmas on the 24 th of December, in mine, we do it on the 25 th but as she must live away from home, we decided to ...

Great Ross, here in Galicia also has the same tradition that most people have. A religious event has become the best excuse to gather friends and family and celebrate many things. These dates have something very special for everyone here in my land.

Happy Holidays.

So what does Asgardia think about the minimum age for Parliament?

Hello my fellow Asgardians,

So the minimum age polls are now closed and in the short space of time that they were open, they generated 1,488 responses which is hundreds more than any petition managed to get ...

Indeed people want this change many of us from the beginning (18th of June) have been active in defending and promoting. An unfair treatment segregating amongst Asgardians not according to their enthusiasm or their capacity, not even their merit or their dedication but just based on their age.

Minimum Parliamentarian Age: Perspective

Nov 29, 17 / Sag 25, 01 07:51 UTC

I'm not really sure how to articulate what I'm thinking, so bear with me. Perhaps this might be where the arguments are originating from in reality? Due process implying a legal system (legislature, judges, etc) when all we have is a constitution that knew it was going to run ...

Nov 29, 17 / Sag 25, 01 06:18 UTC

The due process is to use the provisions built into the constitution in article 44, 45 and 46. This would be going directly by the constitution. Why would you champion going by the age in the constitution but not changing the age by following the constitution?

Nov 29, 17 / Sag 25, 01 02:11 UTC

Mistakes were made. He said. She said. Absent of a formal decree, these are all precisely why we need to be going directly by the constitution; to avoid these misunderstandings. I am not opposed to changing the age, I just want to see due process.
