    Acting President Martin Van Buren immediately writes General Hamilton, asking him to put down the rebellion.

    Ames accepts the Sec of War position. I can't even vote against this in a game, Yay!

    The matter moves to Congress: @Woot shall we spend $52 million to make both the Revolutionary War Veterans and the speculators who preyed on them whole once more? You have 19 votes. Needs 30 to pass, unless anyone uses cards or influence to get more votes.

    'Tis shameful our veterans have been placed upon the backburner so long. Not only shall I 'rouse the congress at once to cut cheques quickly for those brave men to whom we are greatly indebted, but I offer enduring assistance to postmaster @Leuser towards licking the stamps and envelopes until all have been repaid!

    Julian Assange arrested

    Still, it comes down to charges to protect secrets whose existence makes the U.S. Government in a state of high treason and sedition, corruption and contempt, and betrayal of their own people and violating the Constitution by which they function, and hiding those facts from their own people by slapping on a "classified" label. Do YOU believe that, in these cases, Assange, or Snowden or Manning, for that matter, are the REAL criminals here, is pretty much the question I'm asking?

    Ha! Thomas Jefferson becomes the William Henry Harrison of this timeline, with the shortest Presidency ever.

    I cannot in good conscious allow these honorable men who fought so bravely for our revolution go a day more without paying what America is indebted to them. I call upon Secretary Morris @Agent B to bring this issue before congress and offer my personal influence to ensure it is heard. I would also like to fill my remaining cabinet positions at this time. I would like to offer Gerry the position of Secretary of State and Ames @Woot the position of Secretary of War. (I believe that wraps up all my appointments)

A slave rebellion led by Nat Turner is freeing slaves and killing slave owners in the process. Southern governments are demanding that the new president acts.

    Ok. Assuming @Shamilton is in favor of his own repeal proposal, the measure shall pass. Income drops $10 million, but you still project a profit of $40 million by the end of next year. In fact, despite all the craziness with Europe, you expect to leave your successor a whopping $113 million for future emergencies. The financial state of the union is secure! And word has gotten out. As you close out your final months in office, you receive an unexpected visitor from your past. Hercules Mulligan, your old friend and fellow Revolutionary War Hero. And in fact, that's what he's here to talk to you about. During the revolutionary war, soldiers were payed in war bonds -- which weren't actually accepted as payment anywhere. With the Continental Congress literally printing it's own money but with no actual source of income back then, and the colonies printing their own kinds of money as well, and nobody in charge of any of it, the whole system was a mess -- back before Washington was elected President and young John Quincy Adams sorted through it and fixed everything as our first Secretary of the Treasury, of course. But there's one matter that was never settled -- the Revolutionary Soldiers' war bonds. In fact, most of those soldiers have since given up on ever getting the money truly owed to them, selling the debt instead to speculators who paid pennies on the dollar with the hope that the war bonds will eventually be worth something...even if it's not the full value printed on the certificate, they paid the soldiers so little for these currently worthless pieces of paper that any price at all will likely represent a significant profit to them. But there are some soldiers out there...perhaps the truest of the Patriots, like your old friend Hercules Mulligan...who still expects that America will one day live up to her word. What say you, President Hamilton? Is it time that you finally did right by these loyal soldiers? Or is this just money down the drain for a war that has already been won -- with most of the money going not to the soldiers, but to the speculators who took advantage of the situation? A word on "tension". Currently, tension is zero. Should tension reach 5, the game will automatically end in Civil War. (Unless I buy the sequel. I "think" maybe there's a way for the game to continue in that scenario, actually playing out the Civil War, but I don't actually know yet. I was planning to ask you guys at the start of Era B whether you want to keep playing long enough for me to order the sequel as well. (Current game automatically ends around the 1860s. I believe the sequel continues into the 1920s or so. But for now -- tension +1 would mean one step closer to the game automatically ending.) What say you, @Shamilton?

    Thomas Pinckney applauds his older brother, Charles, for being in charge of admitting his problem with beverage abuse. The first step towards a challenging recovery, but comfort can be taken with having an endless supply of coffee and doughnuts to foster the supportive comraderie necessary to keep you from wandering towards the danger sauce henceforth! *raises glass of water* A toast! To my brother and the repeal of the windowpane/carriage tax! Aye!

    They're charging him for hacking not for publishing information to avoid that.

    Charles Pinckney recently joined a confidential group, "Gentlemen Whom Have Overindulged in Wines and Spirits and Prefer to Remain Incognito" to undo the damage caused by his abuse of adult beverages and the embarrassments that ensued. The agenda of their first meeting was to come up with a better sounding name, though that has been tabled for the time being. Pinckney is humbled by the offer to serve his nation once more and accepts the position of Secretary of the Navy. Meanwhile, the Plantation Caucus votes a resounding Yay to repeal the windowpane tax.
  23. Shamilton

    Actinguy's Founding Fathers

    While we wait on @mlcorcoran's vote, the President would like to announce the nomination of Charles Pinckney as our nation's first Secretary of the Navy. I am so glad that the nastiness between he and his brother have been resolved. Chuck's military experience will suit him well in the position. Please let the administration know your decision whenever possible.

    Excel sheet updated to reflect British negotiations. 4 IP to Hamilton as conservative party leader. Public support swings 2 points to liberals (+5 conservative overall) as folks are losing faith that negotiations are working to achieve long term peace. Hamilton and John Quincy both lose 2 popularity for negotiating with the bastards who murdered our beloved Chief Justice Thomas Jefferson. Gouverneur Morris receives his popularity for becoming Secretary of Treasury and Hamilton is docked the 2 IP he uses to try to pass the tax repeal. (If he fails, Hamilton will be reimbursed one IP.

    Joe Biden seems to be in

    Biden already ran for President twice before, and those runs ended terrible. He is a likable guy in the background, but not Presidential candidate material (and almost 80 years old).
