    I seriously don't know though how Calvin Coolidge can have more than FDR. I get some people might not have liked his policies, but he did lead us through WW2 and helped us out of the Depression.

    gameplay question

    Yeah, I think so, I've seen some that run randomly. No problem!

    As far as I've seen, they run random ads against opposing campaigns or in support of your own campaign.

    Both statistics are troubling, to be honest.

    I'm not saying that it isn't still happening, but that statistic is also outdated. It goes from 01-08, not 11-18. That's been ten years ago.

    The Liberal Party condemns the President for dereliction of duty in New York. Fatalities could have occurred and the President sat idly by, watching it happen. The Stock Exchange was nearly forced to close. Maybe when big business gets hurt the Conservatives will actually begin to act. Liberals will support Alaska's accession to statehood. Liberals will support small business tax cuts, but will not support large corporation tax cuts of any kind. Liberals would not support conscription at any cost. It seems the war is nearly done and there is no need to force people to join the military, especially with war approval ratings through the roof.

    The de facto leaders of the Liberal Party, Sen. Crankford (L-AL), Minority Leader Paula Reur (L-IA), and Sen. Kayla Little (L-NJ) congratulate the President on his election win. Sen. Little is being prepped for a second run at the end of the term.

    Okay haha, I was wondering if there were other primaries

    OOC: Just an idea, but it seems like the debates might slow down the RP quite a bit. Maybe we should post all three, Socialist, Conservative, and Liberal all at the same time in order to keep it going quicker. Maybe just the initial answers, because I know it can get kind of bogged down here.

    Senator Crankford, your campaign has highlighted the importance of American dominance and how we should have a strong influence on foreign affairs for the sake of economic gain. What makes you believe that policies related to our global influence will grow our economy? Crankford: We have seen this happen in the past, through our actions helping France in their war that by forging a trade deal with them, it directly impacted our economy here at home by growing it and giving more jobs to the American people. It makes sense that this would happen if we would do it again, but this time with closer trade partners like Mexico and Canada. What makes me believe that this will happen, is that it has already happened. History has proven it. I would be proud to go to Ottawa and Mexico City to hammer out a trade deal that is beneficial to the American worker. Liberals will always stand up for the laborer, and by focusing on these deals, we would gain jobs and be able to pay a better wage to these workers. We have also made successful deals with Portugal and the Netherlands, which have both impacted the nation positively. For many border states, these deals would give their states a needed boost to jump-start local economies by being so close to other nations that would be willing to buy American. OOC: Is that long enough? I didn't know how long to make it. @Kingthero

    I could see 4 different parties developing at some point, a sort of Conservative, Libertarian, Socialist, Liberal thing.

    Liberals are overjoyed that the President will be willing to work with them on these issues and will meet with the President in the coming days.

    Name and office: Sen. William Crankford Age: 62 Party: Liberal Resident state: Alabama VP nominee: Gov. Mary Brown (L-Pennsylvania) Key Issue to Defend in Debate: Economic Impact of Trade and Wealth in the United States/Economic Patriotism Platform (see State of the Union): National Strength: We should be moving up on this list, as we are demonstrating our military might against an overreaching Japan. The fact that we aren't is worrying. Military Strength: We need to request that the Mexicans send the money or our ships back because of the war with Japan. We need all of the supplies we can get, and this would be a proper way for us to do that. While the war seems to be close to its end, Liberals have been entrusted with the social construction of Japan after the war. Foreign Affairs: We need to make it very clear that the French are our closest allies in the world. German militarism in Europe is worrying, even if they say they have good intentions. We critique the government for being too willing to sidestep the fact that Germany could be a problem. Poland could've been dealt with by encouraging some rebels rather than military adventurism on the behalf of the Germans and Russians. The Japanese threat is being dealt with in a bipartisan manner, and should be celebrated by Americans as the epitome of what can happen when both sides work together. We are glad to have brought China in to help us, and we will think of them as a rather good ally in the future. We need to set up democratic governments in Japan and whatever is entrusted to us in Korea. Liberals offer to send their best diplomats to Japan once the war is done to guide them in how to set up this kind of government. Military: Liberals propose setting up another front. Perhaps if we provide the naval support and the ships, we could have the Chinese invade the southern part of Japan, which could further strain the Japanese forces. Rally the international community to our side by pointing out the lawlessness to which Japan has conducted this war. Spread leaflets in the Japanese home islands for pro-American views and a promise to treat ordinary citizens safely after the war is done. We will only prosecute those that committed war crimes. Pro-American parties will be encouraged at the onset of the government's making. To appease China, a Japanese military will be limited for 30 years. Economy: Branch out towards other wars? Conservatives have told us nothing of the fact that more war may be on the horizon. We remain steadfastly opposed to any adventurism in Europe where we may have to attempt a land invasion from this far away. However, this does not mean we won't support our allies in Paris or in Amsterdam. We need a new plan to deal with the economy that we have inherited. The Administration has largely kept out of economic affairs, and we will use that to our advantage by pushing an economic agenda. We need to encourage people to buy and sell American goods. The only way to do this is to forge new deals with democratic countries, and hopefully make a great deal with Mexico as we have just helped them tremendously. Tax breaks could be an option for businesses who start American and hire American. We need to rev our economy up by growing with our neighbors. Trade: A natural decline in war was expected, and could be contributing to the economic displeasure our nation is experiencing. This is completely normal, and we think we should try to salvage our trade by forming deals with Canada and Mexico. Budget: We could easily see the budget being knocked off balance by the war. This is natural and we won't hit Conservatives on it. Liberals would likely agree with the same things that they want to spend it on. There is no need to change anything here. Social Harmony: Knock the Socialists for calling us the "Aggressors" and "Terrorists". Maybe a destruction of the Socialist party could be achievable in the next couple terms. Liberals are heartened by the bipartisanship that has been showed by the Conservatives and Liberals over the past few years. Not everything is roses, and we will not hesitate to point out our differences when they come up. Immigration: Immigration is good for the country and the fact it is growing shows how well our country is thought of in the world. Mood of the people: People should be proud of our country, and Liberals will always be, no matter if we are at war or not. We will strive to help the economy to help the American People. Party Power: Privately, Liberals acknowledge the presidency is a lost cause, but plan to give it a strong run to help their chances in the House and Senate. Bipartisanship is one of the prized things of the Liberal party and we will point it out no matter where we are. We need to keep a hold on the House or the Senate to keep our relevance in the war and otherwise. We have not hindered the war in any form, in fact we have aided in many aspects. Popularity of the Incumbent: We will not hit the President in any terms, as he is popular and a rather good man. Save our criticism for his compatriots in Congress.

    Sometimes he leaves it from previous elections. I usually just let it slide since he has a lot on his plate

    OOC: I thought you said Puerto Rico backed being a territory @Kingthero If both Cuba and Puerto Rico back being a state, Liberals will support their accession into the United States. We celebrate our victories in the House, but worry about declining support in the Senate. Liberals begin a hunt for a candidate to challenge the President, but it isn't going well, as the President is popular and likely to win re-election.

    It would be up to local law enforcement if they believed something was up, then yes. We are glad the President was willing to sign the compromise bill and announce their support in Congress
