    Preferred 2020 Democratic Candidate

    Honestly my top one isn’t on this list. Sen. Amy Klobuchar from Minnesota is by far my top choice. Smart, pragmatic, bipartisan, Midwestern, she would be the one that could win an election.

    Liberal leaders in the House and Senate call for full investigations into why the president was murdered. They point towards Russia or China, as domestic discourse was not high. They all offer to be at her funeral and will all wear blue to commemorate her

    TX/TN Senate 2018

    I think it’s just statewide races aren’t as fun if you didn’t live in those states

    Are there ways to improve their different aspects?

    I'd deal with vcczar on making templates. He's in charge here.

    Currently don't have access to that email until tonight. I'll check on that. Actually, yes, I got the emails. Do you need more Dems? I can look for some if you need them. Yeah, that should work for me. If you get the Dem card template ready, I could start making some. If you need any ideas for Dems, I could think up some as well. Ag. Sec. Tom Vilsack comes to mind. To make the cards, I'd just need a screenshot of it so I can paste it onto the pixlr thing.

    1. What exact parts would you want me to do - I ended up snipping tooling McConnell and doing it that way. If there's a different way, that'd be helpful to know now. 3. Font - what size and what type it is. I think I got size figured out, but type is harder. 4. Images - if you want me to do some images, that wouldn't be a problem, I'd just need to know how to do it. 5. How many you want me to do - I can do pretty much what you need. I'm more familiar with Democrats, but some Republicans I can definitely help with. The more recent Republicans are much easier for me, basically from 2010 on, with some exceptions.

    It depends on how many you want me to make haha. I'll try a card with maybe Sen. Lisa Murkowski sometime and show you to make sure I've done it right. I'll look into pixlr. I'll check out the video too. What did you use to make the card as it is, starting from scratch? I guess that's the biggest obstacle for me right now. Okay I'm editing this a lot, but I've figured that out a little. The images probably will be what I need you to do and stuff. If there's any part of it I shouldn't do, just tell me and I'll leave it blank.
  11. This perhaps could be one of the closest split results in UK politics. The results were... If you live in Brighton, Pavilion, Bristol W., Bath, Portsmouth S., Isle of Wight, Norwich S., Bristol S., Sheffield C., Holborn and St Pancras welcome your new Green MPs! Miliband nor Cameron reached out to anyone. Plaid Cymru, SNP and the Greens formed a bloc together to assure a majority if one of us would be approached.

    I'd say that in general, it's fit closer to modern day than you'd think. Both the Liberals and Conservatives are close to the center on most issues. Social issues are to the left of normal, with both agreeing broadly on anti-discrimination legislation. Though this was much more apparent in the 1840s-1890s. Military I'd say has shifted to the right of center, with Liberals taking hawkish stances as well as the Conservatives. Economy is a fairly divided issue, but not an altogether divisive one. Foreign politics is much different. Monarchies are largely still in existence in Europe, and WW2 was largely skirted because WW1 and other events went differently than in our timeline. If you make a little mistake, it won't be that big a deal, we'll help you get on track. Currently there are 3 major parties, the Conservatives, Liberals, and Socialists. Socialists are largely kept to congressional races, but they've been close before to making it into round 2. There is 1 minor party in the Libertarians, who has not really broken through yet. My best advice would be to read the past like 6-10 pages to get a good feel of how history has been altered. It's not that bad a read as you'd think Hope that helped!

    I would be interested in helping a bit, but I'd need some guidelines, and I'm not sure how many I could do. Just in general, might need more info.

    Liberal leaders slam the proposal to have the 10 commandments in every government building. Have the Conservatives even seen the 1st amendment? Fmr. President Ellis delivers a speech from the Governor's Mansion in Montana, pledging to lead the charge against the bill at the state level. Liberal governors are already taking stances in their own states. Liberal leaders rally against the immigration bill, calling it discriminatory to those that aren't from Europe. Either make it a universal law, which we would support, or don't make it at all. We would like an actual date that it expires, not just an eventual pledge, as it rings hollow to Liberals. The Liberal Senate Leader asks for the President to take a strong stance on an invasion of Romania. We cannot let the Russians get to the gates of Berlin before we decide to act. Small nations should be protected just as fervently as we would protect our own.

    Ah. Just curious, really like the idea of a Germany 2017 scenario. Unfortunately, I've never made one and don't really know how.

    President Langford congratulates President-Elect Trebuano on her victory and hopes that they can work together for the betterment of America. President Langford makes no plans to stay in politics as it stands and will go back to her home in Des Moines.

    Name and office: President Kristen Langford Age: 66 Party: Liberal Resident state: Iowa VP nominee: VP Jerry Francis (L-MA) Key Issue to Defend in Theoretical Debate: Defense Strategies and the Bonus At Home Platform (see State of the Union): National Strength: The fact is that Russia is incredibly strong. It would be unwise of us to start claiming that we will pass them alone. That is not our goal, our goal is to be able to defeat them if they would pursue a reckless foreign policy against us or our allies. Together, Europe, the Middle East, and America, we are strong. We are stronger than we have ever been, and the League of Nations stands better for it. The President appreciates the Conservatives' dedication to our country's continued strength, and she proposes something else as a defensive board at the League. Instead, she says the Defense leaders from every country, not just the large ones, should be able to serve on a board that determines policy and best ways to defend against possible Chinese and Russian invasions. No land will be prioritized. If Persia needs troops, we send them there. If Germany needs them, they go there. If the Swedes need help, they go there. This will not be a petty I-need-this task force like the G8 would become. Military Strength: We need to entertain the idea of another naval base somewhere in Europe, perhaps to serve as a joint base with either England, France, or Germany. We need to also entertain the idea of letting Italy into the alliance. This is no longer about ideology, but about the survival of democracy in Europe and in the world. Foreign Affairs: The Chinese are getting bogged down by pro-independence rebels in India and in the other occupied territories. We want to step up cooperation. We plan to beef up support for Pakistani, Ukrainian, Indian, Bangladeshi, Thai, Chinese, Russian, and Polish rebels throughout the two countries. America expects Germany, France and other European powers to support us in this adventure. Military: We must be on high alert. Conservatives have attempted to take the high road on the military, but no longer. The military has attempted to take a position against the Liberal leaders, despite us having been in power for 12 years. I will pressure my Defense Secretary to make sure that the military actually listens to the concerns the country has. Bombs must be developed, armored vehicles are as well. Where is the leadership at the Pentagon? Economy: Liberals have always been the stewards of good economies. We cannot focus singularly on the threat abroad and ignore what we have here at home. We need to deal with high unemployment at this intersection. We propose large scale industrial renewal by updating our old mines and railroads. Despite the progress of our last infrastructure bill, the facts remain that most of the railroads in the US are very old. Roads must be begun to be built as well, as automobiles are beginning to file out into the world. An interstate-highway system must be built, and that can provide jobs to workers all over the US. From the smallest, least populated states to the booming metropolises, there is nowhere that will escape the highway system. This great country will be united and easily navigable within a decade. We also will focus on making arms for rebels in the occupied Chinese and Russian territories. Trade: An alliance is always what Liberals have pushed for. From our first American Alliance to the League of Nations allied force, we have seen that alliances naturally grow good fortune and good graces among those that are allied. Budget: We have successfully dealt with the nationalization issue. Conservatives keep bringing it up, but the fact is, they want to just denationalize. They don't care if nationalization is good or bad, as long as it fits their talking points. President Ellis attempted to do a bipartisan bill, but Conservatives wouldn't vote for it. Our good graces with them on this issue are over, and we will not be attempting to deal with nationalization in this term. We also point out that their ideas aren't anywhere new, and seem to be content with running the same candidate election after election. Social Harmony: As they should be. The President emphasizes what she has done to deal with the Russian and Chinese threats, highlighting the forming of the alliance and the tariffs against Russia and China. She states that more is still needed to be done. Immigration: How we deal with high unemployment is included above. Conservatives love to use immigration as a scare tactic against the hardworking people of America, but in reality, immigration is good and really a non-issue in today's America. Mood of the people: We emphasize what we have done to make progress in this area. Party Power: President Langford will enlist Fmr. President Ellis to campaign positively for down-ballot races, particularly in the House. If we can erase a Conservative majority, that is key towards making any headway at all. VP will be sent out to campaign for Senate races. Popularity of the Incumbent: Naturally, we highlight her popularity.

    We propose conducting talks with the Swedish about American investment in Sweden to save them from economic collapse and therefore, from turning to Russia and China. OOC: Thanks. We are glad the alliance is taking relevant steps to going through with a defensive plan. America will definitely help build a base in German-Annexed Denmark. We are a bit concerned with the optics of America building a base in a forcibly occupied country, however. We keep the offer open to the Ottomans if they feel it is necessary. After 12 years of Liberals in power, it is natural that the pendulum swings back. We just hope it isn't too far back. Our power in the Senate and relative power in the House can help us maintain a relevant face if the worst would happen and we lose the presidency. We are of course, happy that the Liberal Libertarians are staying with the party.

    We are a bit concerned about the lack of preparation we see throughout the alliance. Let's double it for now, but say tripling it isn't off the table in the future. Pres. Langford cruelly jokes that it seems the military hates their party with a passion. She doubles down and demands some sort of product by the end of the year, regardless of the type of model it is, bomb, vehicle, they must help the nation. OOC: Hehe We will make no further comment on the issue as it would only exacerbate the concerns with the issue. For now, it shall be left. There was little control that the federal government could force the Californians into doing.

    The President clarifies that it would be a defensive alliance
