    The Socialist Labor Party sends its condolences to the previous President's family, friends and colleagues.

    Rank the 2020 Candidates in primary strength

    Bernie should be tied for first with Biden and I think Clinton should be lower than 2nd Tier (Just not exactly sure where).

    The Socialist Labor Party concurs with this sentiment.

This will be done to in order to ensure that workers pay and conditions as well as the services and goods that these sectors provide improve substantially.

    PMI, PI, and CI Full Scenarios

    No, no I would never do that, I am sorry if I used words which could be misconstrued believe me I know how things can be misread by people if they are going off just text on a screen as I made that mistake yesterday.

    PMI, PI, and CI Full Scenarios

    Er that's not what I was trying to get across at all I was just genuinely asking whether you wanted to work together to create "full" scenarios to reduce the time it would take to create the full scenarios if they were done by one of us on our own.
  8. MBDemSoc

    PMI, PI, and CI Full Scenarios

    I don't mind doing "Full" versions of the elections I was going to do I was just worried about the amount of time it was going to take to create them all unless you want to work together?

    Soc Lab Leaders take strong stances against the passed legislation and backs the Liberals stance on Romania.

    The Soc Lab Party will vote against SAHA for the same reasons we gave in 30s, against the NAVA as it is unconstitutional, against the EFA and against the IRA.

    Announcement

    Hi, I intend on picking up where @vcczar leaves off with the 1874 UK General Election and create the rest of the UK General Elections as well as the US HOR and Senate Races as I have now acquired Congress Infinity, if anyone would like to help they are more then welcome to, I will commence these projects after my play-by-play series is over.
  12. MBDemSoc

    Announcement

    Yes I will include all parties for all elections (those that got seats / a notable slice of the popular vote).
  13. MBDemSoc

    Announcement

    Oh ok that would be helpful to look at, vcczar has already said he would help with candidate stats for the UK GEs once he has finished the 1874 one.
  14. MBDemSoc

    Announcement

    Yeah you are right I will just stick to HOR elections, if there are multiple candidates for the same party the person who received the highest amount of votes out of the number of same party candidates will be the candidate.

    Announcement

    I am aware it will be based on the legislature votes for the elections before 1914.
  16. MBDemSoc

    Announcement

    Update the first election out of the promised elections I will be working on will be the United States Senate Elections in 1788 and 1789 which will feature the Pro-Administration Party (Federalists) and the Anti-Administration Party (Anti-Federalists) and Independents which will be headed by John Langdon for the Pro-Admin Party, Richard Henry Lee for the Anti-Admin Party and a placeholder for the Independents, I will also be working on the US House of Representatives elections from 1788 and 1789 with the same parties but with Frederick Muhlenberg leading the Pro-Admin Party and James Madison leading the Anti-Admin Party.

    Kefauver and Hoopes congratulate the President-elect and thank all the people who voted for the Soc Lab Ticket and congressional candidates as the people from the States which the party won who served as electors in the first round, Kefauver was reelected to his Senate seat and will continue to hold the government to account. OOC: I chose Kefauver as he was an outsider and populist, I mostly chose him due to the outsider aspect of him due to the Soc Lab Party never holding the Presidency or having control of one of the chambers of Congress aside from coalitions.

Refuse to establish a military base in illegally occupied Denmark. Foreign Affairs: Enact a policy of strict neutrality only engage in warfare if we are attacked or for humanitarian reasons (Or in exceptional circumstances).

Pursue research into the possibility of the development of a nuclear bomb. Continue building up the military in case of a possible attack from Russo-Chinese Alliance. Economy: Create the Public Works Administration (PWA) which will be a large-scale public works construction agency. It will build large-scale public works such as dams, bridges, hospitals, and schools. Create Federal Project Number One, the project will have two main principles: 1) that in time of need the artist, no less than the manual worker, is entitled to employment as an artist at the public expense and 2) that the arts, no less than business, agriculture, and labor, are and should be the immediate concern of the ideal commonwealth. Create a National Insurance System which all persons of working age which will have to pay into weekly but in return will be entitled to wide range of benefits including Employment and Support Allowance, Incapacity Benefit, Invalidity Benefit, Jobseeker's Allowance, Sickness Benefit, State Earnings-Related Pension Scheme, State Pension, Unemployment Benefit, Widowed Mother’s Allowance, Widowed Parent's Allowance and Widow’s Pension. Create a National Health Service which will be a universal health care system which will be funded through general taxation and national insurance contributions but which will also nationalize existing municipal provision and charitable foundations which cover health. We will end insecurity for private renters by introducing controls on rent rises, more secure tenancies, landlord licensing and new consumer rights for renters. The new homes that will be built under a Socialist Labour Administration mentioned in our last platform will be mostly comprised of a new type of housing called local authority housing which will be built by local authorities to ensure that rent is genuinely affordable. Trade: Create free trade deals with nations if they agree to strict protections for workers and the natural resources of the nations involved. Budget: A deficit is fine. Focus on how the government can make people's lives better. Social Harmony: No comment. Immigration: All immigrants are welcome as long as they have not committed serious crimes.

VP nominee: David Hoopes (PA). The focus of this platform is to address the issues of high unemployment and the housing shortage. The party still advocates for the economic policies presented in previous party platforms, the National Health Service policy will replace the vague universal healthcare pledge from past platforms.

    The party supports it then.

    The Soc Lab party supports the military and economic sanction measures proposed by the President so long as she makes sure the Alliances are for defensive purposes only otherwise we may lose the trust of the nations that are neutral in the rivalry between the American Alliance and the Russo-Chinese Alliance and also due to the Soc Lab Party's longstanding tradition of Neutrality in Foreign Affairs. The Soc Lab Party will support the lifting of the ban of the teaching of the theory of evolution as the party strongly believes in the upholding of the First Amendment. The Soc Lab Party will support the undoing of segregation measures in California schools and the creation of catchment areas for schools as well.

    OOC: Dude, it's really hard to read the mood of a nation with just a few lines and also I tried to address all the issues that were facing the nation from my point of view while also adapting what I felt comfortable with moving on and also brought back the popular candidate from the 1940 election I don't really know what else could be done without me shifting too radically from my and the in roleplay party's views.

    OOC: I am not angry I am just asking for you not to get people's hopes up if you are not going to follow through or at least semi follow through with your teasing of success for certain ideologies at certain times.
