Über mich



  • Defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession;
    you're saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is
    that it's not literally illegal to express.

    -- J. Voerman-Fillmore



    Dominic "Dom" Stone (* November 15th, 1960 in New Beises, Southern Territories) is a well known, us-astorian science fiction and TV author, former Vice President of the United States and former republican Governor of his home state of Laurentiana. Dom is happily married to Helen (former Springer), has two daughters, Miriam and Mia, two sons, Thomas and Dominic jr., as well as a grandson, Wesley. Together with his brother Mortimer, he's a leading figure in the Republican Party of Laurentiana, the local branch of the Grand Old Party. Dominic has a strong interest in music, modern arts and is seen on the New Beises Country Club's golf court regularly.

    Dom is a founding member of the City Management Association of Astor (CMAA) and therefore an outspoken advocate for the local governance of townships - notably the Council-Manager form of local administration - and independent government for native tribes. He was a member of the New Beises City Council and during this period one of the lead architects of today's City Charter.

    During his time in national politics he was Party Secretary of the Republican National Committee and long time public opinion leader of the republican Congressional Caucus as Congressman and later Speaker of the House. Known as a strong supporter of former President Markusz Varga, Dom notably sided several times with Democratic politicians on topics in Laurentiana's General Court and had harsh disagreements with then-Senator A.D. Abzianidze, without ever losing the Party's support. Appreciated as a masterful political tactician by his own party and feared for it by the Democrats, his ability to form and hold political alliances not only within the GOP but to politicians all over the spectrum as well, was a powerful tool he successfully used to seek compromises and bring forth his own agendas.

    After the end of the first Varga era and his own term as Vice President, Dom plead goodbye to the national political stage. Not long after, the Republican Party fell to pieces, many attributing this to his missing as a personal "glue" between members - especially between the social conservatives around Márkusz Varga and the traditionalists around Natalie Holland - and leaving behind a gaping power vacuum within the party and conservative politicians themselves.

    Most memorable sayings

    We all want the same things in life. We want freedom; we want the chance for prosperity; we want as few people suffering as possible; we want healthy children; we want to have crime-free streets. The argument is how to achieve them.
    -- Laurentiana's constitution Day Celebrations 2017


    ... but not an utopic future for the few, the brave,
    rather an affordable, livable future for as many as possible.
    That's my agenda.

    -- "Build your House from STONE" Congressional Campaign 9/2013


    It angers me and it hurts, to see this nation, these people divided like seldom before.
    And it bothers me to leave Congress at this state of the nation -
    But I know very well that I can do much good from where I'm heading.

    -- Speaker's farewell speech shortly before the Inauguration as 41st Vice President of the United States


    I enjoy getting things done. My philosophy is efficiency. That's were we have to go in local government.
    -- Founding Conference of the City Management Association of Astor


    Sometimes we're hot-headed or stubborn people.
    But at the end of the day, we're simple folks by heart. Hospitable, hard working, quick to forgive.
    Proud of our families, our traditions, our ancestry.

    -- Laurentiana's Constitution Day Celebrations 2015
