    @vcczar I vehemently disagree with adding additional events when there is little flow of anything going on. Regardless, you would also have to simulate us sending diplomats as the act entails offering the British the ability to repay the debt.
  4. US Presidential History RP

    @vcczar You could still simulate a Senate vote, as it doesn't get sent to the House until after it passes both committee and floor.

    OOC: Its fun being a Realistic Federalist; balancing laws to appeal to both the States and the Federal Government is important, especially retaining the original purpose of the Senate. Also note: It doesn't need to be sponsored by the House according to Senate Rules, and it'll go through both committee and the floor of the Senate first.

    Name: Theodore Penn State: Pennsylvania Political Party: Federalist Age: 37 Profession: Surveyor Short Term Goal: Become a U.S. Rep/House Leadership Long Term Goal: Become a U.S. Senator/Senate Leadership Background: Born in Philadelphia, Theodore Penn grew up with an accelerated knowledge in history and science. He loves helping people, and he loved geography, so he took the job as surveyor to provide the local governments with helpful information as how to distribute land. Penn's interest in politics came after the end of the American Revolution, as he saw his chance to greater help his country. He supported a unified Government, and thought that the Articles of Confederation were too weak. Penn's main goal would be to advance in the congressional ranks and be influential in land policies, as that was his beloved skillset.
