    Is there something I need to do?

    Patrick Henry graciously accepts.

    I'd appreciate a running total of each individuals popularity and influence points, and for an announcement when any of each is increased or spent. Maybe at the end and beginning of each term the GM @vcczar can make a post with that so that we can adjust accordingly? Without the physical board to look at whenever we want, the text should be just fine.

    John Jay, Oliver Ellsworth, and Alexander Hamilton all enthusiastically support the passage of the tariff as a matter of principle. Additionally, Patrick Henry reluctantly supports the tariff to pay off the debts from the war.

    It is my mistake, it would indeed generate 40 monies. I should have never trusted those damn Norwegian pens, they tend to smear when most inconvenient. ( @vcczar, when is interest calculated? I'm assuming that we pay the interest no matter what happens this turn as it would take the 4 years to get the funds from whatever actions we take. I also edited my original State of the Treasury to correct my mistake)

    Addition to the post above: I'd highly recommend the carriage tax in addition to the tariff. The +11 revenue would put as at 11 monies for the term, and there is virtually no chance of public outrage considering the state of our finances.

    Oliver Ellsworth, The State of the Treasury: Dear President Washington, Our Republic does not have much in the way of finances, I fear. Our rebellion, costly in the lives of men who desired only to be free, was even more costly in the coffers. Our reserves are currently in the negative, which is to say that the war has left us with considerable debt. Fortunately, wealthy plantation owners and European governments were willing to lend us monies to ensure our independence and thwart the British. We are 15 monies in debt, and have no revenue. We will additionally have to pay an interest of 5 monies on the debt from what has accrued during your term. To reiterate, this is the simplest state of our finances: Reserves: -15 monies Revenue: 0 monies Interest: -5 monies Total: -20 monies I have complied several options for you to consider to combat this debt. These options include a mixture of tariffs and taxes. Option 1: Enact our nation's first tariff, but no taxes. This is your easiest option, and what I predict you will ultimately choose to do as it is uncontroversial and you will face less opposition. This would net you 40 monies, giving us a balance of 20 in the reserve. Option 2: Enact a tax, but no tariffs. I would reccomend against this option. However, you have several taxes to choose from that would bring in between 7-12 monies each term. This would not solve the issue currently, but would pay off the debt by 1800. Option 3: Enact both a tariff and a tax. This is the option I would reccomend you pursue. This would bring in the most revenue to the office, as currently we have no revenue whatsoever and a crisis could topple our fragile nation. Please do let me know your course of action at the earliest convenience, Mr. President. Secretary of the Treasury, Oliver Ellsworth

    "President Washington, I'm surprised that you came to me with this offer. While we do not have an extensive relationship as of yet, I look forward to working with you to ensure that the finances of our nation remain in check and that our debts are paid in time. I shall remain quiet as I enact your duties and outside of the public eye as long as you see fit to keep the focus on your administration's other accomplishments. I do humbly accept your nomination, and I will begin drafting your tariff right away."

    Hamilton, Jay, Lee and Ellsworth all favor the entrance of Ohio into our union.

    To the President of These United States, I will of course take upon any responsibility that you would have for me, whether that be in the judiciary or in your cabinet. I accept your appointment as Attorney General. Yours sincerely, John Jay

    Dear President Washington, I am humbled by your offer, dear friend. It has been many years since I considered the possibility of commanding a troop of my own, much less that of our entire fledgeling nation. I graciously accept your offer and will do my best to work to ensure the independence of our nation. Yours sincerely, Alexander Hamilton

    I'll happily activate him in that case.

    Why is Patrick Henry in my hand? Is he one of my statesmen now?
