  1. Thank you @upandaway game creator Mr. Heli for pointing out, I mixed up Madison's and Monroe's ability scores. @Actinguy I have corrected the spreadsheet. Apologies for the oversight! @Leuser I have no objection to letting Tariff 2 pass as-is given the mix up. Monroe does have 1 statesman IP if players feel it should be spent to match the Tariff 2 difficulty. @Actinguy you're our moderator, what do you feel is most appropriate?
  2. Also worth noting that President Ellsworth has now tied Alexander Hamilton for highest popularity in the Conservative Party; and in the event of a tie, the tie-breaker is Age. Oliver Ellsworth is the elder statesman and he now has leadership of the Conservative Party and first dibs on the nomination in the upcoming election.
  3. Ok that's 53 in favor, no one has enough IP to undo that. Tariff 2 passes. President Ellsworth and Treasury Secretary James Monroe each earned 1 popularity Federal revenue is raised from 54 to 74 against a debt of -95 @Actinguy the spreadsheet is up to date. @Leuser any final legislation from President Ellsworth before we enter the election of 1804?
  4. Tariff 2 currently has 37 votes Aye, 0 Nay, 0 abstentions That's enough to pass it unless @Shamilton @Leuser or @Woot intend to spend IP on bonus Nay votes
  5. Gentlemen, I urge you to join me in voting no on these supposed "Rights". The only rights are Natural Rights, bestowed on every human being by God and Nature. It is not for any government to give or to take away without due process of law. This essential fact was at the heart of our Declaration of Independence - that all Men are created equal with the Natural Rights to life, liberty, property, and the freedom to pursue their own happiness, on their own terms. James Madison made a very thoughtful and intentional decision not to call out enumerated Rights in our Constitution, and we ought to stand by that. When John Adams attempted to pass a law infringing free speech by the public and the press with his abysmal Sedition Act, it was defeated. When Benjamin Franklin created financial incentives for an end to the brutal and sinful practice of chattle slavery, and to acknowledge the Natural Rights of those liberated slaves, it succeeded. My fellow Americans, Oliver Ellsworth's bill of rights are an attempt at enshrining his own legacy. Join me in saying Nay!
  6. Voting is now open on a bill of rights drafted by President Oliver Ellsworth for all players in any order @Leuser @Shamilton @Woot @swejie @Agent B
  7. @Actinguy spreadsheet updated with 1 Popularity awarded to President Ellsworth and General Jackson. Federal reserves changed from -93 to -95. The President is ready for Issue Card #4
  8. Will any factions spare an IP to authorize General Jackson to quell the tax rebellion?
  9. @Actinguy does Oliver Ellsworth not get a successor either? Is there no runner up to take VP in the Senate succession rule thing?
  10. We never had a VP, because the runner-up in the election of 1800 was the incumbent President, Thomas Jefferson. He retired automatically, unable to take the demotion. George Clinton served his term without a successor, which is why there was the emergency promotion of Oliver Ellsworth.
  11. @Leuser General Jackson is at your command sir. However, there is a 1 IP deficit that needs to be provided in order to meet the difficulty of the issue.
  12. @Shamilton Mr. President, your new tax has been levied and the people are cool with it! What is next on your agenda?
  13. With 51 in favor, needing only 37 to pass, the Windowpane and Carriage Tax is ratified. Federal revenues increase from 44 to 54, spreadsheet is updated. 1 Faction IP deducted from Shamilton via James Wilson's assistance on the vote @Actinguy please let us know the outcome of the Tax Outrage roll. It's a 1d6 dice roll, +2 modifier for this tax, +1 modifier for the number of taxes already active when this passed (1, Sugar & Salt)
