    New Historical President RP

    Governor Harris asks his supporters to have an open mind and a chance to undo this in 4 years. He encourages them to speak out when necessary, but discouraged secession as a way to do that. There are widespread rumors about a second run after the surprise win in the 1st round.

    Name and office: Rep. Thaddeus Prince Residence state: Georgia Party (Federalist, American Progress, Republican, States Rights or Liberty): State's Rights (Formerly Republican) Platform: States Rights Party: Our party will work on behalf of those who believe in a state's right to have the power to control it's own laws. Liberty Party: The liberty party is a nationalist excuse for the North. At least with the Progress and Federalists, it's disguised. Immigration: Thaddeus calls for a near-end to immigration as it is. We don't need more people in the U.S. and certainly not those from countries like Ireland or Germany. Bloody Kansas and Florida: This would've been all solved if they would've listened to the South's concerns in the first place. They now have to live with the consequences of their actions. If elected, we would work with the Kansas and Florida state legislatures to find compromise for the time being before incorporated as slave states. Harmony and Mood: A victory in the war is tantamount and Mexico must become a slave state, or a series of slave states. Mexican-American War: Rep. Prince wants Mexico integrated into the U.S. eventually and become a series of slave states. Secession: Rep. Prince is conflicted about secession. Primarily, he believes that the South is an important part to the Union. Secondarily, if the North imposes their laws on the South, then yes, secession is inevitable. Pop. of Incumbent: The President is a sorry excuse for a human being and can't fathom letting people run for 3 terms VP Candidate: Sen. Nathaniel Jorsten of Alabama, Republican

    Name and office: Governor Joshua Harris Residence state: New York Party (Federalist, American Progress, Republican, States Rights or Liberty): Federalist Platform: States Rights Party: The Federalists and Gov. Harris views this party as secessionists bent on the destruction of the Union. There is no place for them, currently in our society. Liberty Party: Gov. Harris sends a few overtures to the Liberty party over their shared values. Harris believes in eventual abolition, and slightly increased immigration to compensate. Immigration: Harris works to convince his party that the possibility of increased immigration could be better in the long run. For now, he stays the party line and says only limited immigration should be happening as of now. Bloody Kansas and Florida: Bloody Kansas is a weakness of the Administration, who has done nothing to prevent it. Harris calls for some of the militias to be sent in to Kansas to stop the fighting. Harris claims the President's absolute surrender to the South caused the Florida mess we're in now. Harmony and Mood: A victory in the war would be a good confidence booster for our nation. Additionally, work to secure better trade agreements with others, mostly Britain, to increase prosperity. Mexican-American War: Gov. Harris believes the Mexicans are on their back legs and a hard push will knock them out of the war. Perhaps the Southwest is on the table. Secession: Secession is illegal, and Gov. Harris would do anything to make sure the Union stays whole. Regardless of which state is seceding, it is wrong in every instance. Pop. of Incumbent: Gov. Harris uses the fury of the Federalists at the President's betrayal of their party. He calls for every Federalist in the administration to resign in protest immediately. VP Candidate: Rep. Martin Holdsbrook of SC-2, State's Rights Party
  4. I live in Iowa, and we are going to be hit hard by the tariffs. Our state is projected to lose over 624 million dollars. Hits on soybeans and agriculture, I think that it is not leverage and we have a lot to lose but little to gain in this conflict.

    Senator Miller of Maryland conceded the primary after three rounds of voting and enthusiastically endorsed Mr. Richardson. He will go back to serving in the Senate. In other news, lobbyist Benjamin Brown of Iowa has secured the governor's office as a part of the Federalist party. It in unsure whether he plans to serve two terms.

    Miller is happy to have presidential attention and issues a quick response, “If you and your elitist party would have listened to us in the first place we wouldn’t be in this mess. Entering more free states than slave states would always cause an issue and it was an oversight by the government to do this in the first place. The preservation of the Union without violence is tantamount to Republicans and it seems the Federalists don’t share our concerns.”

    Senator Miller quickly takes advantage on slamming the Presidents flip flop on Florida. Some believe it’s a ploy to earn headway in Florida.

    OOC: nice lol Senator Miller offers the same to Richardson

    Ok did it all on mobile lol Name and position: Senator Paul Miller Residential state: Delaware  Party: Republican Platform (have a position on the bold sections of this State of the Union):National Strength: Miller hopes to become a power near France by the end of his hopeful 8 years in office. Military Strength: Senator Miller advocates using the militias and increasing the regular army to 95,000 men and the navy to 30 warships.  Foreign Affairs: Miller supports better relations with GB and wants more with Austria and other European powers. Military: Miller is extremely worried about the current state of the war. He’s not sure that we can handle a fight with France at this time without help from GB or Prussia. We need to upgrade our navy soon. Economy: Miller says that we can’t handle more than one war at a time so we have to resolve the Mexican war before the South can even think about seceding.  Trade: he advocates for increased trade Budget: Senator Miller advocates for a loosening of the tariffs, arguing they needlessly hurt the South. He says a gradual decrease will be sufficient.  Social Harmony: Miller lays the fault of social disharmony squarely at the feet of the President. If it weren’t for the Federalists bad policies, we wouldn’t be having this problem. They ignored the South’s concerns and now they struggle with its consequences. Immigration: He believes that immigration needs to be curtailed, but not necessarily shut down. He recognizes that he will need immigrant votes. Mood of the people: Sen. Miller will vow to keep the South in the Union by any means necessary, and will work as a compromise candidate. Popularity of the Incumbent: Miller believes the incumbent has sacrificed popularity for power and will hammer him on the idea of starting a second war. Party Power: Sen. Miller is intent on getting a Republican Congress by helping down ballot races in races that they are close in. He feels by entering the race, if the Deep South secedes, they won’t surrender the race. Create a VP for a different party: Governor Johnathan Livingston of Maine, Progress Party

    Senator Aaron Banks of West Virginia, a Republican, echoes the former VPs calls for unity and advocates that all Senators agree to preserve the Union over all else.

    Since there's been a bit of a lull haha, here's something. Lobbyist and former lawyer Benjamin Brown of Iowa has returned from DC back to his native Des Moines, and has been using his many funds to canvass the state. With the statehood of Iowa not yet certain, Mr. Brown is preparing for an upcoming Senate run. At age 49, he is fairly young and can wait before having presidential aspirations. His political party is largely unknown, because his sole lobbying point of view was for Iowan statehood. It is suspected he is a part of the Federalist party. Dream aspiration is either Secretary of State or even a run at the presidency.

    Trump Approval by State (May 2018)

    Iowa leaning blue seems to be a surprise for many, but the most revealing will be how these toss-up midterms go.

    OCC: Will Iowa be a state in the next election? Is the balance of free/slave states tipping towards the free ones?
