    All the Soc Lab faction leaders are pro the teaching of evolution hence the support for State government owned school systems in the gubernatorial candidates' platforms, all are pro legalisation of birth control, all are against mandatory prayers and mandatory pledges.

    The Soc Lab Party support the calls for plebiscites before war decelerations. The Soc Lab Party is fundamentally opposed to the idea of conscription and believes that service should be a choice instead of an obligation. The Soc Lab Party is fundamentally opposed to wars of aggression and has been for numerous years, the only wars the party has supported have been defensive. The Party already supports the establishment of a state pension and universal physical and mental health care as well as universal social care, we also call for the gradual bringing of the defence industry into Federal, State or Worker ownership to stop the defence of the nation being profited from.

    Event 1: Reduce the active troop and vessel numbers to pre Russo-Ottoman war levels and put the now non-active troops and vessels into the reserves, begin recruitment drives in order to boost overall troop numbers (recruits from the drives will go into reserves). Increase funding into military technologies. Event 2: Hold status Encourage all nations that still have colonies to decolonise as quickly and peacefully as possible, starting with US allies. Offer to purchase the colonies if necessary. Once a nation has agreed to give up a colony, the colony should be governed for a short period of time either solely by the League of Nations or jointly between the League and the former owner of the colony or the U.S to prepare them for independence and majority native population rule. Provide economic assistance to newly decolonised nations similar to the deals done with the Mexican and Brazillian governments recently, under a Soc Lab administration these projects would be done by the federal government, State governments or by workers co-operatives. Event 3: Regulate and tax the sale of recreational drugs, also pursue government research into what medical benefits the currently legal recreational drugs have. Legalise, Tax and Regulate Sex Work (E.G Prostitution). Legalise, Tax and Regulate Alcohol (Can't remember if prohibition was repealed if it was ignore the legalise bit). Legalise, Tax and Regulate pornography that contains subjects which can consent. Decriminalise homosexuality and allow homosexuals to get married like everyone else. Legalise abortion. Legalise birth control. Repeal the National America Values Act of 1953 as it is in direct conflict with the first amendment, restore the original motto of the United States "E pluribus unum" and remove the words "One Nation, Under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance.

    The Socialist Labor Party has had 3 different factions emerge internally: the Social Democrats - the most moderate of the factions and the smallest of the factions, they commit to the idea of a mixed economy based on the predominance of private property, with only a minority of essential utilities and public services under public ownership (the faction is mainly made up of progressive defectors from the Liberal Party), the Democratic Socialists - the largest of the factions but is on the decline, focused on transforming the economy from a capitalist one to a socialist one, the faction is in favour of replacing private ownership with social ownership of the means of production (mostly through nationalization), the Libertarian Socialists - the most radical and second largest faction in the party and will likely soon replace the Democratic Socialists as the largest faction, also favours transforming the economy from a capitalist one to a socialist one but they reject the concept of socialism as centralised states ownership and control of the economy and advocate for the social ownership of the means of production through decentralized structures such as workers co-operatives and muncipialization, they also advocate for decentralized structures based on direct democracy and federal or confederal associations such as libertarian municipalism, citizens' assemblies, trade unions, and workers' councils, this is the only faction which more closely follows Marxist Economics than Keynesian Economics. All the factions are socially progressive or socially libertarian and fairly anti-interventionist.

    Far-left my behind, the dude is a Social Dem which is nowhere near far-left, he's not advocating for the overthrow of capitalism by peaceful or violent means just the reforming of it.
