Are you not aware of all the other people who have proposed and
sponsored these things at once time or another? I just happen to be
the one that wrote the text of the resolutions we voted on.

I can't really see what that's got to do with anything, either. Those
things went to a vote because the constitution says they must. That's
got nothing to do with building consensus on the issue.

[You have quite neatly just demonstrated what "argumentum ad hominem"
actually is, though].
