    New Historical President RP

    State Representative Aaron Black (P-WA) easily triumphs over the weak Liberal-Conservative coalition candidate for the Gubernatorial race in Washington, becoming Governor at age 48. Black is an establishment Progressive. He is a more conservative member of the Progressive Party, and has numerous times been accused of being too favorable to Conservative proposed policy.

    Vice President Bunt concedes the election and wishes President-elect Barker well after his party has been out of power for so long, and officially retires from politics, returning home to Georgia to live with his family. OOC: I will be announcing several new characters to play, as I should be able to handle them now.

    Vice President Fredrick Bunt (L-GA) announces candidacy National Strength: America is on an upward trend following the war, and our industry will begin to grow and prosper now that liberal policies are bringing us out of the Depression. Military Strength: Our army has no need to increase in size. In fact, with the war in Europe over, we can downsize significantly and focus further on industrial growth and building our alliances and relationships with other countries. Foreign Affairs: President Atkinson was wise to remain neutral in the European affairs, and his limited offense against the Spanish shows that we are not power hungry vultures. We should focus on building ourselves stronger relationships with the European powers, and put some effort into helping the British and Italian governments build their nations once again, including some financial aid. Tariffs should be lowered against both nations, though not against communist France. Military: Our military has no place inside of our nation for the time being, and it's size will be decreased. However, we must have troops ready to be transported overseas and begin training regarding transcontinental invasion, and look into the possibility of peacekeeping forces in former European territories if requested. Economy: Our economy must be managed by the government to ensure that industries do what is best for the worker and for the nation, without greed hindering our nations best interests. Nationalization of important industries must continue, and we must provide some bottom line support for those who need assistance, perhaps through employment drives. Trade: Trade will continue to improve with non European powers, and we will take efforts to improve trade and economic well-being within Great Britain and Italy. Budget: Our budget should receive considerably more net income with the reduction of our military and the raising of taxes. Social Harmony: The Liberal Party has shown that we as a nation are united, and that while we hold diverse opinions we can work together to be a dominant and positive force on the global stage. Immigration: Immigration is to be encouraged as refugees flee from unfavorable home countries. As the economy improves, they will find better jobs, but for now they will likely be stuck doing jobs that no white man of European descent would do. Popularity of the Incumbent: President Atkinson was popular among the people, however my administration would likely be a far more liberal and willing to take government action that his own.

    Vice President Fredrick Bunt will be running in this election, and vows to serve only a single term to the American people. (If we still get the 24 hours from the SoU I fully intend to finish the full platform)

    Bunt will be 68 at the time of the next election, the next election will likely be his very last to run in before retirement.

    I decline to do so as well, but will offer to serve as VP once again.

    I'm endorsing, yes. And Liberal Party is preferable.

    Former Vice President Bunt announces that he will not seek the Liberty Party nomination, and urges the creation of a newfound "Liberal" party, pending Republican cooperation.

    OOC: This wasn't meant to be any official overture or done in return for a withdrawal, my apologies if it came across as so because that would be suicide for both or our parties.

    Name: Fredrick Bunt State: Alabama Office: Former U.S. Senator, two term Vice President Party: Liberty Platform: National Strength: America is the strongest nation in the Western Hemisphere, and we intend to continue being a dominant force in North America. While there will be less international focus in a Bunt administration, domestically the lives of workers and laborers will improve and our industrial might will continue to grow by leaps and bounds. Foreign Affairs: We must be wary of entangling ourselves in European affairs, just as President Bunt once warned us of. The world is growing more and more tense, and war seems more likely every coming month. We have nothing to gain from an alliance with the Austrians and the Germans, and this could only put us into a war we have no desire to partake in with our British cousins and Mexican neighbors. We cannot fight a two front war, nor is there any need. Make negotiations with the British and French on what they can do to have us pull out of the alliance, and see if they will offer any economic incentive for our neutrality. If there is nothing they can offer, make it clear to our alliance members that we are only joining if the nature of the war is unquestionably defensive. Military: Our military has built up beyond levels that are necessary for the time being. Our focus should be inward, and with neutrality comes much less need for frivolous military spending and forces at our borders. Economy: President Brooke and I disagreed on many, many topics, but the one that we agreed upon most was nationalization. An eight hour work week, banning of child labor, and ensuring that workers have the right to unionize against their employers is a basic right to be guaranteed to each and every American. As President, I would strongly urge not only legislation implementing each and every one of these ideas, but I would also heavily support a workers rights amendment to the Constitution. The banks will be nationalized, and farmers debts WILL be forgiven. Immigration: Immigration is growing in America, and at the moment we cannot take on a higher amount of immigrants due to the lack of jobs for our own citizens. When the economy improves, privately consider pro immigration bills, but for now it must be restricted. Incumbent: President Brooke is domestically the greatest President to ever lead the United States of America. However, his foreign policy was incredibly lacking, and he made several mistakes on the international stage by allying with the Austrians and Germans. The opposition has only grown so strong due to the uncertainty of war, and while I distance myself from the President in many ways I believe that the American people will come out in droves to support his socialist intervention policy to corrupt industry, and welcome the economic growth of a Bunt administration. Party: The Liberty Party needs to make outreaches to Northerners. Anti immigration stances can improve this somewhat, as can a more protectionist trade policy and taking a turn to support labors interests. Having an opposition is both normal and healthy, and I would gladly take Ohio Senator Sven Aktkinson ( @Hestia11) as my secretary of state, and allow him to have a very active role in foreign affairs.

    New Historical President RP

    Name and Office: Senator Fredrick Bunt (One of the first black senators, who chose his last name out of respect for the first President of the republic, Jefferson Bunt) Resident State: Alabama Party: Liberty Platform: A socialist leaning Liberty Senator who seeks to challenge Brooke on the grounds of his long rule and his alignment with the Germans and Russians National Strength: The United States of America has grown to perhaps it's highest strength on the global scale, and we should continue to use this strength to build internally. Military Strength: There is no need to continue to buildup our standing army, though warships and convoys would give us better leverage internationally. Foreign Affairs: We must do away with the alliance with the Germans and Russians. We are much more familiar with the British, who are also more socially and religiously tolerant. Additionally, do what we can to support governments that align with our own, even if that means sending funding to opposition parties. Military: We must continue to use the military to force the former Confederates into submission. Heavy military use will continue in all ex confederate states. Economy: Dump funding into increasing infrastructure in the South and rapidly industrializing the region. Additionally, raise tariffs across the board. Trade: Raise tariffs across the board, including the British (though considerably less if they agree to a formal military alliance) Budget: Raising tariffs should pay for some of the industrialization of the South, though not all. Inflation will make the debt much easier to pay back in time. Social Harmony: Stamp the confederate way of life out, and continue to modernize the Southern way of thought. We must empower women and blacks. Urge the strong passage of pro labor laws and outlaw child labor. Workers must unite to ensure that they are treated rightfully! Immigration: Immigration is heavily encouraged under a Bunt Presidency, and we will seek to reduce ex confederate emigration. Mood of the people: The people are happy and satisfied with the direction that the nation is going, which is a first in many years. We intend to continue socialist Liberty policies that will ensure this continues. Popularity of the Incumbent: Brooke has been a fantastic President, but his many terms are beginning to become worrisome, and Americans are afraid he will not give up his power until his death. Additionally, the Liberty party needs a new face, and Bunt intends to take the party in a more socialist direction. Party Power: The party will continue to dominate in the South, and adopting socialist tendencies will ensure the Northeast and Northwest stay solidly within our own column.

    Would creating a black Senator of the Liberty Party be too radical for the RP?

    I'm too busy to right out a full platform for another few hours, but Senate Federalist Leader Andrew Woodbury announced his intention to run for the Federalist nomination. (I'm posting this in the name of expediency, I'll edit a full platform later)
