    Military Transparency Act: NO!
    Darwin Act: NO!

    The first act would hinder any government in the future to pick the best mans for the top jobs in the military. Generals should be picked because of their competence, not because of which political party they belong to. And the 2nd act is even worse, it basically suggest we ban the progress of science and return to the Dark Ages. Is the government drunk?

    Because 1) We're in a budgetary crisis, as I tried to emphasize and 2) we don't have the first railroad tech yet (and you can't complain to me about that - the government doesn't choose our techs).

    Military Transparency Act:
    Yes: 2
    No: 6
    Abstain:

    Darwin Act:
    Yes: 3
    No: 4
    Abstain: 1

    So that's the interesting start.

    The thing is, people bash liberal ideas thinking that our liberal party is evil. Why would someone keep themselves and the coming generations ignorant just because the idea came from a liberal? This is truly ignorance. I hope the liberales can run for the next election and get to the presidency.

    Darwin Act: NO
    Military Transparency Act: NO

    The military act puts the stability of our forces in jeopardy and devalues meritocracy as a method of choosing the leaders of the Fuerzas Armadas. As for the Darwin act, it is simply a disgrace, and were I less attentive, I would have mistaken it for a policy coming from the deepest reactionary pockets of absolutism in Europe instead of our young and (hopefully) free nation.

    It saddens me that so many Conservadores and Nacionales would vote to keep our people ignorant and prevent the progression of society. Armies and arms over the centuries have shown an "evolution" in technologies and tactics, why can such a thing not be true as well with the biology of every living thing?

    It says, verbatim, in the update "The lower house has sent the upper house a bill proposing to ban this "Darwinism."

    Then it also goes on to say, "The Darwin Act will ban the teaching of Darwinism in Chilean schools." I don't know where you got the idea it would impose the teaching of Darwinism if passed.

    If passed, the Darwin Act would BAN Darwinism.

    Well, I guess I've vastly misinterpreted it then (I'm suspecting that the time of day at that time had something to do with it).

    I'll change my vote to NO, if that is okay.

    Knowledge should not be destroyed. The Darwin act should not pass.

    Perhaps it is time to select generals based on their generalship skills rather than their political views; hopefully the military transparency act should lead to a better standard of war. And it looks like another war is likely, based on past events.

    Señor, if you do not wish to see it banned, then you should vote no.
