    It's Jesse, there's no i in there. And I'm from Georgia. I decided it was best not to continue listing my city and state, given that it would only take a college or possible employer three pages of search results to find my profile on here.

    Good point. So are you suspicious of royalists amongst us?

    Do you know?
    No, I don't. Another good point.

    Jet doesn't say where he's from as example.
    Good point. Jet57 doesn't sound like an American name.

    Nor does radioman or Jessie, just from this thread.
    Good point...!!??
    Wait a minute, that's not a good point at all...
    BTW......where are YOU from?
    What sort of name is joko, anyway?

    Accuracy is important.

    And I'm from Georgia.
    You can represent the deep south.

    I decided it was best not to continue listing my city and state, given that it would only take a college or possible employer three pages of search results to find my profile on here.
    Wise decision on your part.
    I don't worry about that sort of thing happening in my area, everyone here seems oddly passive and forgetful.

    re the op - I do see where saying "California votes yes" is more impressive and easier to remember than "Paddy votes yes".

    But ... I'm still playing around with the idea of dumping the states anyway. Or reconfiguring them. Or having districts or something. Our current set of states are pretty arbitrary.

    Re: A Suggestion on How to Place Delegates

    If we are not going to represent states, then I see no reason at all to call ourselves delegates. I mean delegates from where?

    Delegates from our homes, delegated by ourselves, representing ourselves (and those people we presume might agree with us, which is likely a far higher number than actually do).

    I am a delegate from the end of a dirt/gravel road in California, nestled in the Sierra foothills!
