    Barker Retires from Politics, making Former VP Harper Inning of Illinois the new Party Leader

    I got to say this is embarassing from a political analytic standpoint. If we had actual campaigns this would be seen as very weak as you presented many falsehoods. Funny though your dynamic strategy.

    Name and office, and note if they are a minority--woman or African-American: President Lewis Barker Resident State: California VP: VP Harper Inning of Illinois Platform (see State of the Union) I have set up our country on the best course of action for America: if other parties were to take the Whitehouse, we would remain in economic scrutiny because of the rapidly changing economic policies. You all have gotten exactly what I promised, and I deliver on what I promise. My promises for next term? 1. Formally address foreign policy targets as a result of the ship sinking. 2. Continue our economic policy to allow for our businesses to export immensely with our trade partners. 3. Commit a Governmental Budget analysis to see how we can pay off national debts. I will continue to serve all the American People, not just the ones commonly known as my supporters.

    So the debtor thing didn't pass, or is it close like the panama thing? We still have a navy, and if additional attacks with direct evidence or new evidence on the ship comes out, then we can choose other means of blocking said enemy country, like enforcing a blockade on the panama canal which France, if they were the target, would heavily benefit from to trade with their pacific colonies.

    @vcczar I assume debtors prisons were abolished due to Progress and Liberals, judging how Hestia supports removing them too. If I interpreted stuff right, the Panama Canal funds will likely pass with Liberal and Progress support, but if we compromised on the Business Amendment it would most certainly passed. I am seriously hesitant about whipping up for a bill iirc I originally was against. However, noting that we have done a lot of what that bill originally entailed, I believe we wouldn't gain much by following a radical solution to a solution already being gradually strived for. I am willing to take a gamble that our Administration's progress towards denationalizing industries is enough to convince the few moderate conservatives if any needed to pass the funds no longer needed for the canal to help farmers, especially noting that farming is a delicate industry that powers this whole nation. This means I will not be whipping any support for an amendment I don't believe is necessary anymore, or at least at this time. I might be misinformed about this info, please lmk if I am. In other notes, the Government announces that due to the recent sinking of the ship, and it being 'known' that it was done by radical ideas, that if we can pin a future attack on a country having those radical ideals, than let it be known that we will also tie the sinking of our ship to that country too and get our revenge for our dead soldiers.

    I propose we abolish debtor's prisons, and only those that deceitfully avoid taxes and fail to pay debts shall go to regular prison. Also, upon completion of the Panama Canal, announce that the Government will then use the extra funds to help the farmers ease their debts. The goal is to end economic hardship, and this alternative will have a similar and likely better affect then switching to the silver standard. There will be no bending over to the capitalist. Following the suspicions, we announce to the global world that the investigation has concluded that the sinking of the ship was caused by left-wing radicals, and while they did not claim to be apart of a specific Government, that speculation is left to the public. The Panama Canal bill is signed. The denationalization bill is signed. If the reserve army is created, we can further cut our military to 60,000 so to lessen the cuts on infrastructure. I sign the arms industry subsidy bill. I side with my party and my westerners in going against this business bill.

    Since we are simplifying things, we will stay with bimetalism, especially noting that since the mining industry is being denationalized, lawmakers need time to regulate the metals as private silver and gold industries reenter the market. I do however publicly sympathize with the farmers, noting that the Government will still work with them on their debts to make sure that bimetalism won't be the cause of economic distress. Tariff issue acknowledged. That clarification is correct; however if he agrees I want final approval due to another statement I will make in a bit here. Investigate the Cuban towns near where the boat exploded, and see if any crew members who caused espionage escaped to the coast and 'faked their death'. I want to bring forth with businesses a solid point: Due to the rise of the socialist/communist/facist ideologues, keeping their current workers instead of hiring more people, people more likely to be extreme, is the best choice. If they build trust with their non-radical employees, than their businesses face less worry about further labor protests and strikes. If they agree, note that they should re-hire those employees, as the protestors weren't trying to slander the companies at all, and just discussing policies. I propose the limited hard liquor law, a law that limits the availability of hard liquor and strong beer solely to bars, where there is a relative safe environment to consume such beverages. I am happy that these measures have been presented too Congress. I wish to discuss with the shipping, fishing, and textile leaders, probably concentrated in the Northeast, about how they would grow if they were trading with other countries as their own business rather than a "Business of the American Government". If an industry, particularly shipping, sympathizes with this idea, then I wish to denationalize or at least open up the ability for private industries in these industries to exist.

    1) Silver Standard Before I make a decision on this, I would like to know the current laws behind bimetalism. Are banks required to provide fair exchange rates? Is the current rate of exchange fair? Any speculation? 2) Socialists, Communists, Fascism, and in the US There is no point in going after radical ideas unless they pose a threat to our national security. As there has been no violence, I see no reason to persecute people just people of their beliefs. 4) Tariffs I will veto any tariff bill that raises tariffs on Europe; the only way we are going to bring our businesses back into the European market is by utilizing our private industry to export more and more goods without fear of too much government interference. 5) Capitalist Attempts to Save the Economy Again See if denationalizing industries would allow him to give the Government a partial bailout. 6) Ship sinks! Launch a military investigation into the situation, and immediately bring all results to my office. There is a possibility it was the Spanish... 7) Labor Unions march I want to meet with the labor leaders to discuss alternative forms of action, and I also want to meet with the businesses as well. 😎 Prohibitionists Alcohol is terrible if abused, but banning alcohol will result in both an awkward shift of culture and possible illegal trading increasing. If we ban alcohol, and criminals learn how to avoid a ban, then imagine what other illicit things they can avoid in the future. However, I want to meet with the prohibitionists, and see if there are any laws that would lessen the evils of alcohol without posing a risk to culture and security. 9) Canal in Panama To pay for the canal, we shall cut the standing military to 80,000 people, and utilize those wages to pay for the labor and supplies on the canal. 10) Reforming America Firstly, nationalizing the mining industry was one of the biggest hits to the West Coast mining industry. I firmly believe that mining should stay out of Government hands, and wish the denationalize this industry as soon as possible. Next, I want to denationalizing the railroad industry. However, I will only denationalizing this industry if lawmakers can agree to passing legislation that will only allow one universal railroad size to exist in order to preserve our current railroad infrastructure and avoid a decline. I also want to officially create a reserve army, one that will only be called if our Nation is at risk of invasion. This is a defensive only army, and should easily attract people who only want to defend this country and not embark on invasions. I also want to work with business leaders to create an arms industry, which we can use to greatly benefit our foreign trade, knowing that foreign powers love to go to war and need a lot of supplies. Finally, I want a list of the rest of the nationalized industries to see which ones they are and what next steps need to be taken.

    Barker Celebrates his Win with Inning in Indiana It is a grand day that the American People have elected a President that stands for everyone, away from establishment politics. I am grateful that the American People have chosen me, and even though my term may not be perfect new ideas will surely be implemented to best protect American interests. It is time to bring America INTO A NEW CENTURY! God Bless you all here tonight, and God Bless every American soul.

    Name and office: Senator Lewis Barker State of residence: California VP nominee: Congressperson Harper Inning of Illinois Platform (see State of the Union above): "As I have previously rallied, it is time to return to our strong economy that the last Progress President, President Henry, oversaw. These post civil war politicians have continuously failed our economy, and finally more and more people are responding to our message. We almost have ballot access everywhere, if not already, and it is time that we have a President that will bring new ideas to the office." National Strength: The fact that recent studies have shown our neighbor of Mexico ranks above us is truly scary. Why have we sunk from the time of being 3# in the world with President Henry all the way down to below a country that we beat in war, let me remind you it was a war started under the successful Henry administration? We need to grow our country economically back to being the strongest nation in our hemisphere. WE ARE NO LONGER THE STRONGEST NATION ON THE AMERICAN CONTINENT! Military Strength: We should slightly reduce our ground troops, however we should also create a reserves system so that people who want to solely defend our country can be called in the time of war with the sole goal of defending their country. Foreign Affairs: European conflict and our reactions to it have been embarrassing, however we must move on and make sure that we strike the deals needed to best propel our nation forward. We should continue to strive for our relations with Asia and South America, as Mexico poses a threat to our influence. Military: We do not need 120,000 troops to defend against Indians. That is a waste of troops. Creating a reserve system, while slightly lowering our standing army, should make it much more efficient to deal with our internal disputes. Economy: No administration seems to be able to fix the economy, and it is time to change that. The American Progress Party shall lead the people to actual economic recovery, recovery that will not be harmed by the shady politics seen by the establishment in Washington. Trade: Thanks to the great work of our politicians, we have not jeopardized our Trade further with Europe. This means we can recover European trade with thriving American businesses exporting products, along with our current efforts to increase trade among other trade partners from all around the world. Budget: We have laid out plans in our platform to lower the budget, and luckily economic recovery under our administration would later aid those budget cuts in order to pay off our debt, help out the American People forgotten by the past administrations, and help re-institute American dominance on the continent. Social Harmony: It is a shame that Westerners have continuously been denied a voice; luckily, thanks to our hard work, we at least got some things done for them. Under my administration, westerners should recover towards the same level as everyone else. However, we do also note that we can't only hear from the Westerners. This is why we continue to propose our message of COMPLETE American Unity, something that we have worked for and succeeded with in the past. We are the only party that is not new to politics, and we have been consistently showing the People that we offer the solutions needed to bring every American together in relative harmony. Immigration: Immigration is not the issue why we don't have jobs; the economy is. If we blocked immigration, and our economy recovered, we would lose valuable assets that would lead to American economic growth. Mood of the people: We are still the Party of unity, and we have not been harmonious as a complete group since we have been stable economically. Popularity of the Incumbent: The incumbent not running is a grand opportunity for the American Progress Party to continue to grow numbers. We have shown that we are electable in more than just the West, and it is time to drop stigmas that we are a wasted vote. We are not a third party; we are THE THIRD PARTY! Party Power: We have been consistently growing, and one day our growth will lead to an executive win.

    Lewis Barker Rallied in Illinois after the Stock Market Crash While we are happy that efforts to help our farmers, along with our successes in foreign affairs thanks to our multi-partisan acknowledgement of American prosperity, I can not personally stand how these Establishment Governments have continuously dropped the economy into multiple depressions. Every campaign, I have made it known that there are many ways to help build the economy. Sadly, little to none of what I have said has been heard in Government. It is time for a change. We have always stood with Westerners, but we have also stood for the best interests of the American People. Nobody will ever get everything they want, but if every American citizen can live in a country where they feel they are united among their neighbors, than that is a victory. We shocked many as we continuously got on ballots across the Nation, and I firmly believe that it is time for a President to try strategies that haven't failed before. President Henry managed a great economy, and kept Americans together in a time of turmoil. The American Progress Party led that effort. Our party has never failed the American People, and it is time to vote Progress for true American Progress.

    American Progress Vote We do not support raising the tariff on Europe; if we raise the tariff, then recovering economies in Europe will not buy from us period, as Great Britain has lowered their tariff. Of course we will support bi-metalism efforts. Our farmers need to finally have their voice heard. The extension period shall be voted on as well, as long as an amendment that the Government will be forced to debate another extension after the four years are up to ensure that the farmers are in a capable enough State to pay off their loans.
