The Evil P-word

Severe Curmugeon Alert!  Duke Richard Pontification Warning!

I object.

At some point discussions of political issues becomes beating a dead 
horse.  That point is after people have stopped added new information or 
new ideas or new insights.  Simply rehashing highly inflammatory subjects 
leads to bad feelings without accomplishing anything.  I suggest this 
debate has reached this stage.

Duke Sir Master Curmugeon. :)

> 	Doesn't a principality have to follow a state border?
> 	Do we want more Royalty?
> 	Do we want more Orders?
> 	Do we want more Newsletters? (Lady Thalia's concern)
> 	Do we want more excluded dates for Principality Events?
> 	Where will all the spiffiness come from? (Lord Tadhg's concern)
> 	Doesn't enough opposition exist to kill principalities anyway?
> 	How can we push forward with principalities? (a very tentative subject)
