    -Manchin Campaigns in Manchester, NH, talks taxes- "You are being lied to both teams promise the middle class will be helped. Democrats wind up raising taxes on the middle class to pay for their expensive programs, and the Rrpublican party cuts taxes on the rich but conveniently forget about the guys in the middle, I will not forget about you....the middle class is the backbone of this country and a strong middle class means a strong America, and your taxes will go down with me at the helm, thank you" -Joe Manchin Campaigns in Ames, IA- "Dick Cheney who was here mear hours ago must think most Iowans work retail, and fast food or in some office somewhere. Thats not true, 22% of Iowans are farmers, and 31% of the nations corn comes from Iowa alone, another 31% of Iowans work in the Ethanol industry which time and time again my opponents prove they know nothing about. And 8% are Windermers, but that growing 8% is repsonsible for 86% of Iowas energy. Remember that the next tine you use your hair dryer here in Ames, that electricity is probably from a windfarmer. The other 3 candidates in this race simply dont care about Iowa. Because seldomly does the winner of the Iowa Caucus win the nomination, so they come here and speak about issues none of you care about and isues none of you vite based on because its good to show their face. I am not showing my face. I am Joe Manchin amd I speak my mind!"

    Many high ranking Liberals were in attendance. Governor James Madison officiated the wedding, and there was some stir over rumors that he had intended to marry Dolley Todd herself one day. It was all for naught, as the wedding went off without a hitch, and Albert Gallatin and the union with his wife Dolley Todd made him more likable in the eyes of the public.

    I have spoken with her father and all the necessary exchanges have been made in accordance to the agreed upon dowry. A. Gallatin would like you all to bear witness of my marriage to the lovely Dolley Todd-Gallatin! (Dolley Todd card)

    Cheney runs TV Ad on Leadership across Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, and South Carolina (1-4) Cheney Rallies in Des Moines, Iowa on Job Movement (5) Cheney takes the time to highlight how Iowa's industry has been shifted elsewhere. "At first, it was manufacturing. Then, it was our agriculture. Did you know that the U.S. imports hundreds of billions of dollars of food a year that we could easily grow at home? For big business, it is simply cheaper to exploit cheap land and labor abroad to garner them more profits. As President, I will seek to incentivize growth of American industries." Cheney Rallies in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on Atlantic Trade (6) Cheney focuses on the importance of harbors in trade. "Something that has been working behind the scenes are distribution companies, specifically those specialized in Atlantic trade. To many people's surprise, many companies that operate our harbors in the Atlantic are based in Europe. In Europe, they have multiple countries with multiple ports, which grows the shipping industry in that regard. The U.S. is only one country. Due to our country's endless blocks on shipping overseas, many companies would rather just do business rather than base here. As President, I would seek to unblock this industry, and perhaps bring thousands of jobs to our coastal communities." Cheney Rallies in Florence, South Carolina on Religion (7) Cheney visits a large congregation to share his faith and discuss religion's importance to modern culture. "Over the years, we have seen religion present within our youth, but the actual morals themselves are often ignored. It is truly sad to see society go into this direction, but we can do things about this. Churches are great places to host local community events, events that can help keep communities together and away from things such as drugs and violence. I am a big supporter of protecting religious tax exemptions, as I believe that churches need every penny they can get to help their local communities."

    Important notice! Judicial review is now active. This has not happened in either game on the forum as of yet. This means that the Chief Justice can cancel certain issue resolutions that the Supreme Court historically could have been able to do. @vcczar currently controls Chief Justice Randolph, but when he resigns or retires he may be replaced by the president at the time.

    Chevy Chase applauds Al Gore for his support of Oprah " I want to thank Al Gore for the very brave and very amazing statements he made on the Oprah Winfrey show. Frankly he said a lot of things that needed to be said and it makes me that much more upset at how he was cheated in 2000. This is one of the very reasons why I think the electoral college should be abolished. I know a lot of people would disagree with me but let's be realistic here, we live in society that says one person one vote. Then tell me how come in specifically presidential elections we disregard the popular vote and let a system that was frankly a compromise between northern and southern states. Let's be honest, California is never going to go red in Wyoming is never going to go blue. How is this fair to the Republican in California or the Democrat in Wyoming, this is a dumb idea that also makes it uniquely hard for third parties to have a chance at winning the presidency.

    @mlcorcoran If Pinckney accepts the nomination, Pinckney will be at 3 popularity. Additionally, between Pinckney and Washington, you will need to come up with 3IP to solve the issue. If you do not, both of your statesmen will lose 2 popularity, and the card is added to the next deck.

    George Washington decides the offices. Washington takes a break from planning out a new garden to consider offices for a cabinet. If he can delegate the work, then he can go back to micromanaging his property and investments. He takes out a piece of paper and writes a letter to the US Congress: To the Congress of the United States, I nominated John Jay for Secretary of State @Kingthero I nominate Alexander Hamilton for Secretary of the Treasury @Dr. Insano I nominate Charles Coatesworth Pinckney for Secretary of War @mlcorcoran I nominate Fisher Ames for Attorney General @Kingthero I nominate Benjamin Franklin as Postmaster General I nominate DeWitt Clinton as Envoy @Dr. Insano I nominate Charles Pinckney as General @mlcorcoran I nominate Edmund Randolph as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Your obd't servant, George Washington, President.

    For new players: Issues are always first at the President's desk. Every issue has a difficulty rating from 1-7. To resolve an issue, you must be able to meet the difficulty rating of the issue with an appointed statesman's ability + IP. Every faction starts with 3IP and you gain 1IP during the Peoples Phase. This issue has a difficulty of 4. It is handled by the General, as specified by the card. This means that to solve the issue, the President must appoint a General, which is a nonpartisan office that must be held by a statesman with the military ability. Theoretically, Washington could appoint Aaron Burr as General, and ask him to spend two faction IP to resolve the issue. If the issue is resolved, you get the first effect on the top right of the card, +2 popularity. If you fail or ignore it, you get -2 popularity.

    Al Gore in Oprah show for the return : (endorsement) Oprah : Good evening Vice President Gore Al Gore : Good evening Oprah! Oprah Winfrey : Following your statement with Ellen, I've also decided to cast my vote for you, but can you tell me what is your position regarding women and black people? Al Gore : These are two interesting and different questions. First of all, you Oprah, are the first example that a woman, and even more, a black woman can become a media star. But you don't have to be our excuse. I feel sad when I see a clear difference, also in the South, where I was elected, between Black people and White people in America. I feel sad, when I see criminal acts from police COVERED by judges under legitimate defense. I feel sad, when I see so many african-american voting for our party, and in the same time, our unability to keep Congress in order to maintain Obamacare. The Democratic party is the party that STANDS with Black people. But the Democratic party did few, apart Obamacare, what did we do? One of the most serious and long-standing issues within African-American communities is poverty. Poverty is associated with higher rates of marital stress and dissolution, physical and mental health problems, disability, cognitive deficits, low educational attainment, and crime. In 2004, almost 25% of African-American families lived below the poverty level. In 2007, the average income for African Americans was approximately $34,000, compared to $55,000 for whites. Forty percent of prison inmates are African-American. African Americans experience a higher rate of unemployment than the general population. African American males are more likely to be killed by police. This is one of the factors that led to the creation of the Black Lives Matter movement that I support. Our party needs a clear strategy about how to cut the gap between white and black people, with many measures : 1 Find a way to ban the abuse of legitimate defense 2 Create federal taxs on discrimination toward African-Americans. 3 Ensure an universal education policy, if you look at my plan I already said where I would be taking money for it. 4 Drop unemployment by cutting taxs, essentially for the smallest business and middle businesses which face great times of uncertainty. Also I hereby announce I will be endorsing Medicare and supporting it through the 50 states but I will be pushing for referendums instead of trying to reform the Constitution of the US. We failed with African-American citizens, both the Republicans AND the Democrats, it's time to bigger solutions than just spending money, it's time to look at the heart of the problem our country face. Do you remember my speech about society? We're in.

    Your fellow founding father revolutionary, and now territorial governor of Ohio Benjamin Harrison V has requested to meet with you. He briskly enters your office, and it is clear that something has gone amiss. “President Washington, we have received word from the settlers on our Northwestern border that the natives have grown increasingly aggressive. In fact, there are reports that many of the savages are armed with British arms, and have been trained to use them. As a result, there have been several casualties in out Northwestern territories. Many of our citizens in our Northwestern territories and the respective territorial governors are writing to us and begging for assistance. I was delegated the task of representing the territories at large. Something must be done to protect the American people, Washington.” What path forward will you take? If you choose to combat these raging Indians, who will you choose to lead our armies? Alexander Hamilton is a fine choice, and he has made it clear that if he is not appointed to the Treasury that he would be open to leading your armies. The Pinckney’s are sure to have a good man for the job, the family of plantation owners were very active in the war for our freedom. There is Aaron Burr, who while considered untrustworthy by some is by all means a fantastic military commander. Finally, there is Edmund Randolph, who faithfully served under you during the Revolutionary War, and could be trusted to put an end to the Indian aggression. Will you put down the rebellion of the savages, Mr. Washington? @vcczar (I'm going to go ahead and post this as it may only require action from @vcczar)

    Washington's Meets His Faction George Washington meets with his faction to determine how the new country will be formed. However, he is perturbed that Benjamin Franklin and Edmund Randolph are of a liberal persuasion. Benjamin Franklin spends the early part of the meeting thinking about his age. He warms himself with the thought that, unlike President Washington, he has at least one more natural tooth left in his mouth. Edmund Randolph is baffled to be in company with Washington and Franklin, but as he comes from an important family, he realizes that he belongs here. He eagerly awaits a position of importance. Washington seems distracted, he keeps thinking about his garden in Mount Vernon, a garden that he micromanaged even during the Revolutionary War. Franklin is now thinking of his gout. Randolph is now thinking about when he will lose his teeth and when he might develop gout. Everyone is distracting themselves from the important mission at hand. Will this nation survive its birth?
