    @Reagan04 Does this mean you are officially deploying American troops abroad as volunteers to defend other countries from the Russo-Sino alliance?

    Austria became a Confederacy, and only was recently sort of reunited in terms of militaries because of the Russian threat. The Ottomans lost most of their possessions, and only kept modern day bulgaria, turkey, and iraq/kuwait by the time they got invaded. Both of the above, without the radicalization of policy due to major scale wars, were able to do reforms to, in general, keep themselves somewhat together. Russia, on the otherhand, is a pure example of the lack of checks and balances. Without having to focus on foreign affairs much at all, and with the increased technology they saw in this timeline, they were able to avoid any major scale revolution that would lead them to some form of demise.

    President Trebuano murdered by multiple gunshots, Cruz becomes President I had a discussion with @Reagan04. He was on vacation, and then swamped by huge workloads irl, so due to his inactiveness the President did get killed due to precedent, but he will still be able to play his VP and react to the decisions.

    Midterms National Strength: We rank 2nd in the list of the top 10 countries: Russia, United States, Germany, China, France, Great Britain, Mexico, Austria, Sweden, Spain. Military Strength: Our professional army is 80,000 men and 75 ships, with a reserve army of 120,000 men solely for defense. We have naval bases in Hawaii, Cuba, Panama, St. Pierre and Miquelon, American Polynesia, and Japan. Foreign Affairs: Russia and China have a super alliance, same with League of Nations and American Alliances. For reference, Russian borders are pre-our timeline-WW1 Russian borders plus Eastern Turkey, Iraq, Kuwait, and Western Iran, and Chinese expand all the way to border Russia through owning East Iran. Military: Our military is semi-active. Some of our military is in Pacific Bases, while others are static. Our navies are planning to deal with pirates. Economy: The economy enters a rough patch, and begins a decline. Trade: Trade remains stable. Budget: Our budget is currently unbalanced, but it has no debt. Our budget consists of the income of 45% taxes 45% tariff , and 10% overseas territories/canals, and the expenditure of 65% military 15% gov. upkeep 20% infrastructure and 10% deficit growth. (SD: 25) Social Harmony: The country is united against a possible threat. Immigration: Immigration levels slow the rapid exponential growth, however the huge influx of immigration has led to housing shortages and high unemployment. Mood of the people: People are beginning to prepare for a doomsday scenario, both militarily and economically. Party Power: Conservatives lose the House and Senate majorities, though most of the defects went to the new Libertarian party which may support Conservative policies. President Popularity: The President is average with a 48% approval rating, however a 42% disapproval rating. ------------- Congress Liberals 49/104 Senate 35% US Rep Conservatives 51/104 Senate 46% US Rep Socialists 3/104 Senate 15% US Rep Libertarians 1/104 Senate 4% US Rep State of Affairs Romania was already annexed. The Ottomans will hold out until the odds kill them; it is doubtful they will save themselves. Generals are debating what defensive structures should be used: Utilize Japan's trench technique, use obstructions, use towers, use walls, etc. Trade deal isn't happening, but trade increased anyway due to mutual interests. Sweden has officially joined the alliance, making their final allegiance. Chinese has begun massive diplomatic efforts with Indonesia, and have somehow miraculously formed a military alliance with Indonesia. We do not know what was promised, but there is serious speculation China plans to use Indonesia as a successful puppet government to own Pacific territory. Sweden has a hard time building defenses due to lack of technological and adviser help. Germany has a hard time building defenses due to lack of cooperation with allies. The Austrian Confederacy has officially re-united into one solid military, meaning the territory may as well be considered united for the time being. Following this, multiple "bunkers" were carved into the Carpathian mountains facing Russia. Now that Serbia borders Russia, they successfully rushed to improve defenses they originally had against the Ottomans to face the Russian threat. News from the Ottomans show that they have slowed the Russian approach, and have no immediate emergencies. In response to the current events, independents and third parties have gained reasonable prominence over certain seats in state assemblies. While too minimal to make a huge difference, this shows a possible multi-partisan trend in the future. After the President responds to these events, the next election will be called. @Reagan04

    All three States of the West Coast have now passed Hate Crime legislation. Washington's is the weakest, however, simply making hate crimes misdemeanors unless injury is caused. It seems like the grants have been abused by corrupt law departments, as leaks have shown that most of the grant money just seems to disappear. Bad YYY henchmen have been arrested, but the leaders always avoid the law and can not be pinned to anything. The terrorist organization label ends up meaning nothing, as no one really takes it seriously. The President's address garnered poor attendance. Overall, it seems people are hesitant about supporting equality due to the Chinese enemy overseas. The President's and State responses have been deemed poor by national polling. The Pacific Four is founded, with Canada and Mexico serving as honorary contributors. The military factor of this alliance is strong, and will be of use if violence were to strike. However, the President gets little to no credit for this achievement. All nations accept the invitation to DC to found the G8, though Sweden is still hesitant if it will go through with it or not. After much failure, the President finally gets a break as the people are in love with how he has centralized and expanded on a core alliance. Japan and Canada decided not to join. The nations are now in D.C. awaiting alliance creation and plans. Plans are started for foreign bases in each sphere of influence, though progress is slow. However, due to smart media, the President is championed for facilitating this process. Nuclear bombs are not a thing, neither is jet technology. However, much progress is made towards the ideal image of both these devices. However, all other technological innovations hit disastrous delays. The Chinese play off our warnings, and our ships fail to patrol due to confusion if they are to engage such pirates or not. The Act Passes the House, and the Senate, and is signed. Studies do not show whether or not this is effective; only time will tell. The Act passes the House, and the Senate, and is signed. However, instead of increasing morale, it just led to a controversial news story defaming the President for being too authoritative. After many years of fighting, the shipping industry is finally denationalized. The Act passes the House, and the Senate, and is signed. The People are happy with the President's decision. In other news... Russia has officially occupied the eastern half of the Ottomans, making Persia surrounded by the Russians and Chinese. Ottomans have slowed the Russian push west, though Russia also invaded and annexed Romania amazingly fast, and has begun to assault Ottoman forces in the West as well. Romania was a part of the League of Nations, though Europe seems hesitant to react with war. This should be discussed at the G8 conference. China has now invaded Persia, and Russia has joined in from the other side and Persia is basically split between the two powers. @Reagan04

    I ended up abandoning my Tennessee project because of how monotonous and daunting the task; my inspiration ended very quick. However, someone did pick up my files, so I hope he makes something out of them.

(SD: 30) Social Harmony: The country is united against a possible threat. Immigration: Immigration levels slow the rapid exponential growth, however the huge influx of immigration has led to housing shortages and high unemployment. Mood of the people: People are beginning to prepare for a doomsday scenario. Party Power: Conservatives take a slim majority in Congress. Events and Decisions for January 1953 - January 1957 for Pres. Trebuano @Reagan04 1) The Rise of the YYY In California, Oregon, and Washington, there has been a rapid rise of racially-motivated groups. The YYY, the most popular group with millions of members, is actively trying to make Asian immigrant lives hell. While the Conservative Governors have encouraged equality, there are fears this group could become more violent. 2) China Defeats Rebels China has now defeated their rebels, and seems to be mobilizing for a greater conflict. 3) Russia Invades the Ottomans Utilizing firebombing and rapid surprise vehicles to quickly cross the Caucuses, Russia caught the Ottomans off guard and has pushed into Asia Minor. Soon, the country will be split between their western and eastern possessions. Ottomans expected an invasion across their Bulgarian border as Romania was weak, but they never expected a serious threat in the mountains. The Ottomans had a pending status in the League of Nations, so they were not officially apart of the alliance. Sweden has still not chosen a side, and Germany and Britain wish for us to meet to figure out what our next plan is. 4) Base Building Progress The military base in German Denmark has not been completed, and as time progresses there is more fear of complete collapse among the continent of Europe. How much more shall we invest in creating foreign bases? 5) Department of Defense Mobilizes Fearing Conservatives, the DoD has miraculously began working full functioning again. A new technology called "rockets" has begun to be tested. Shall there be any new technologies the President wishes to push? 6) Pacific Trade at Risk Piracy has increased tenfold in the Pacific, likely due to the rapid Chinese naval efforts. There is no Governmental piracy, but a good portion of our trade has been hindered by such pirates. 7) Homelessness Skyrockets After the recession, housing has just never fully recovered. Some estimates predict approximately 3% of Americans are homeless, beating all previous records. 😎 Free For the first time, our nation has actually kept itself together well enough not to warrant ten events. Just more things that the President can do! To screw things up... 9) Free Same as above. 10) Free Anything not included here you wish to implement? Congressional Majority Opposition @Hestia11 1) Block Measures As a majority opposition, you have the ability to block specific actions by the President. While I simulate votes and sometimes things change, this block will be much more meaningful than the usual blocking. You gain one of these a year, with a cap of 4. Note that you have these if you are really against something 2) Proposal As a majority opposition, you can likely propose and pass bills, though likely to be veto'ed. You gain the ability to propose one bill a year, with a cap of 4. Note this if you feel creative one day, or are really hostile against a specific policy.

    1952 Election Welcome to the election of 1952! This election, we see a new face of the Socialist party, though many are confused why he has gone so radical since his time in the Liberal Party (I am from Tennessee I know whom you based it off of haha). However, with a weakened Liberal Party, there may be some gains. Conservative Firebrand Trebuano is running for 'the last time', and the current Liberal President is running for re-election. There is heavy Liberal fatigue, and Langford hasn't really gotten much of a firm following. This election we may see the tides turn. Primaries There were so significant primaries. General Election Round 1 Langford/Francis (Lib) 268 EV 31% PV [All States but the ones below.] Trebuano/Cruz (Con) 266 EV 52% PV [ME, MA, NY, PA, OH, IL, MI, CA, NM, SC, ND, HI, PR, MN, NJ, FL] Kefauver/Hoopes (Soc) 31 EV 17% PV [NH, VT, LA (LONG LIVE HUEY LONG, AND NO I DIDN'T DO THIS ON PURPOSE), TN, WY] Note: Conservatives are surging in the popular vote, however Liberals hold many other States. The socialists yet again split an election. General Election Round 2 Trebuano/Cruz (Con) 283 EV 54% PV [ME, NH, MA, NY, PA, OH, IL, MI, CA, NM, LA, SC, WY, ND, HI, PR, MN, NJ, FL] Langford/Francis (Lib) 282 EV 46% PV [All States but the ones above.] Note: This is the first election since I have been running elections that it literally came down to the HOME STATE MODIFIER.

Russia ponders whether to end Persia before they grab an ally, but decides against it. Russian intel suggests that Sweden may be considering siding with the Russian-Chinese alliance due to fears of economic collapse. Our allies are so incompetent they refuse to establish bases on the front, forcing the Germans to protect both their own border and the Austrian Confederacy (Which each country inside AH has its own military). The Confederacy are attempting to centralize power, at least for the military, so we will see the outcome of that. Ottomans lost their Arabian territory, but reformed to consist of modern day Iraq/Kuwait to the east, and Bulgaria to the west. Greeks have their own independence, along with the west coast states. Britain has general control over relevant Northeastern Africa states and Arabian Peninsula states. Germany requests that we build a base in German-Annexed Denmark to help protect the strait from the Russian navy. Ottomans think they can hold their respective strait. In domestic news, many State Governments have been electing Conservative Governors, showing the signs of a growing Conservative surge. Disenfranchised libertarians seem to be moving to the Conservatives, though the Liberal Libertarians are staying with the party. The economy stabilizes, with no significant events. After the President responds to these events, the next election will be called.

    @Hestia11 The alliances have been created among the League of Nations, for defensive purposes. Thailand doesn't exist, as it was British when it was invaded. Persia will accept an alliance if we let them in one. Our tactics are on point, but our allies are stubborn. We fail to create any base due to how general the location is. Sanctions are implemented. We can double our army before going to debt if current economic trends continue. If our economy improves, we can triple it. Research is halted due to the unorganized war department I swear you Liberals have the worst time with the military Somehow, Liberals whip the Libertarians so hard they shut up for now. Canada is in. The country is angered that the President has taken such a middle stance on an issue so heavily biased towards one side. The President could not get anything done; However, thanks to the Conservatives, this issue has been solved.

Some of our military is in Pacific Bases, while others are static. Economy: The economy takes another small dip after uncertain Congressional battles. Trade: Trade continues to take a sharp dive after the fight over denationalization worries both the public and private shippers. Budget: Our budget is currently balanced, and it has no debt.

Events and Decisions for January 1949 - January 1953 for Pres. Langford @Hestia11 1) Russian-Chinese Alliance With the entrance of a new President, immediate fear is raised among the population. Russia has begun mobilizing its army, just after Russia and China signed an official military alliance. Courtesy of increased funding, spies were sent out to learn of the plans, but they were caught and killed on foreign soil. 2) League of Nations Military Alliance Should we try to unite the League of Nations, which China and Russia are not apart of at this time, against the new superalliance? 3) Economic Sanctions Shall we impose economic sanctions on the superalliance, even if it may hurt our economy? 4) Military Status Your military advisers have just stated that in order to combat a potential superalliance threat alone, we need to quintuple our active military and double our navy. 5) Technology Progresses We have finally been able to master vehicle use in warfare. Shall we invest into better bomb delivery devices (rockets), bigger bombs (nukes), or armored vehicles (tanks)? 6) Libertarians Propose a Deal Libertarians in the Liberals have proposed that they will support pro-war measures if you finally denationalize the shipping industry. 7) Canada Requests Membership After decades of tension, Canada finally requests to join the American Alliance, the alliance in which North and South America are all in a mutual defensive pact against outside invaders. 😎 Morality Back in Question Recently, with the advancement of technology, there has grown doubt among professors regarding creationist approaches. Legally, creationism is practically enforced, and in some States evolution is even banned. There are even those professors that somehow find a middle ground, involving how God created evolution and its just another gift of God. What stance will the President take? 9) Immigrant Segregation In California, it has been likely that school districts have been purposefully set up in order to segregate against immigrants populations, like hispanics and asians. Some are calling for the President to take a stand against this. 10) Free Anything not included here you wish to implement? Congressional Majority Opposition @Reagan04 1) Block Measures As a majority opposition, you have the ability to block specific actions by the President. While I simulate votes and sometimes things change, this block will be much more meaningful than the usual blocking. You gain one of these a year, with a cap of 4. Note that you have these if you are really against something 2) Proposal As a majority opposition, you can likely propose and pass bills, though likely to be veto'ed. You gain the ability to propose one bill a year, with a cap of 4. Note this if you feel creative one day, or are really hostile against a specific policy.
