The Winter of 2001 kicked off with a bang during the legislative session. Citizens appeared to witness the session of the newly elected government officials today. Everyone believed that the session would run as any other would, but these expectations were shattered as the first course of action was impeaching the current president. He was accused of not taking action to improve Moockistan at all, such as with the energy crisis last year or helping homeless people find shelter to live in, as he said he planned to do.
This may not have been entirely unexpected, but the next actions of the meeting were a surprise blow to citizens. The Senate began their proposals and suggested multiple laws that would ultimately send the current Democracy on the road to destruction. The first law stated that there would be no further elections for government officials. Therefore, the current members of congress, regardless of their actions or public discontent, would be able to withhold their positions. But, there is still the option of impeaching, correct?
Wrong, for the next law passed prevents any impeachment of government officials. The chaos still didn’t stop there, for the next movement by Senate eliminated the Crisis Vote. This is a method displeased citizens could utilize to start a revolution to overthrow an unjust government. But now, with that option unavailable, there is no hope for the citizens of Moockistan to have a voice in government affairs.
This basically sealed the deal for the impending Dictatorship to become the new government system. An additional law passed now requires all citizens of Moockistan to salute their government officials, or be fined a shocking $100 as punishment. All of these new laws, plus a free market system with monopolies, are truly signs of dark days ahead for the young country of Moockistan as Spring time approaches.
