Should we formally leave the German alliance?

Yes

Your military advisers protest your military tax cuts, and Congress refuses to sign an act allowing tax cuts to the military while a threat of invasion is possible. The Infrastructure Tax cuts are halted by both Republicans and Liberty Party members in Congress, as well as by some Progress members in Congress. Military Imperialists suggest the bases must be taken or bought and built, even if we have to raise taxes to do it. Alternatively, the president could offer liberals (Liberty and Republicans) or moderates (Progress( something they want in exchange for a tax cut to infrastructure. 

Fine, if Congress refuses to cut spending than we cannot cut taxes. Congress is simply not friendly to a small government agenda this term and we should hope they would be after the next election. We shall plaster it loud and clear that to get a tax cut passed they will have to vote for Conservative congressional candidates, hopefully the protesters and anti-tax advocates will provide a base of grassroots enthusiasm to win us a larger share of seats in Congress to get this work done. We shall turn our attention lastly to the proposal on Former Confederates which Congress ignored, like we said earlier when we submitted the proposal, it is not a hill upon which to die because we had much larger issues. Now that many of those issues have been resolved, we'd like to discuss this at the end of the term.

@vcczar And just as an addition, let Congress know that if there is a specific thing they want for a smaller budget, let me know.

Republicans maintain there was no official proposal submitted to Congress. They should’ve offered a compromise rather than a demand to Congress if they wanted it to pass.

OOC: I think you are being silly making a mountain out of a molehill

 

Official White House Statement

The White House is not, at this point, concerned if there was or was not an official proposal. We are more interested in actually legislating to actually solve this issue. What we did was make a suggestion and Congress chose not to act on that suggestion. That is fine because there were many other demanding issues absorbing the time of Congress and the Republican Party. If the Republican party needs to officially hear us say we submit it to Congress, our delegation has done such and we hope they will support our proposal which was in no way meant to be taken as a demand as we tried to stress it to be simply a suggestion. We hope for Republican support of course in fighting this issue which they seem to combat, emigration.

OOC: I’m sorry if it seems that way, but it seemed like in the questioning that it wasn’t an issue that was going to be addressed and then all of a sudden you used it to attack our party.

Official Republican Statement:

Our party has always supported enfranchisement of these voters and would like a compromise on immigration if one would be possible to be made.

OOC: We used to as a Defense against your attack against the administration about emigration, it was not meant to attack

That is wonderful to hear, seeing as hopefully, our economy will rebound, I expect Immigration to again be brought to the table after this election for the 51st Congress. Let us make this bipartisan action of re-enfranchisement be an act of goodwill to show the American people for the close of the 50th Congress.

The Conservative Delegation officially introduces their bill to re-enfranchise Middle and Lower class Whites and Former Confederates. This does not extend to former leaders and the Upper Class plantation elite who scammed the aforementioned group. The measure also includes a declaration of continual condemnation of the actions of the latter, particularly those that fled and now fight against this great nation.

This is sad to see. We may have to make our own webpage or wiki somehow. I think part of the fun will be analyzing our alternate history when we are done with it.

You can make fan pages of stuff. I can look into it and get back to you. A friend did that for a story they wrote a while ago.

OOC: Yeah my skills of creating something besides Wikipedia are very limited. If you are able to provide my something I will gladly edit it. I saved the codes form wikipedia, but all pages were deleted.

Yes

In response, knowing full well the US won't come to Europe, the German alliance declares war on the United States,  this means the major countries of Germany, Russia, Turkey, Austria, and Spain are now at war with us. They immediately restrict trade with us. As trade was restricted with the British alliance (Britain, France, Portugal, Italy, and others). We now have no trade with the European continent. Great Britain issues a response stating that America is wise to leave the German alliance, but that troops will stay at the border to see America's next move. Germany responds during the declaration of war that America has proven themselves as traitorous to their friends as Benedict Arnold. The war in Europe is still ongoing and is mostly a stalemate.

Now that many of those issues have been resolved, we'd like to discuss this at the end of the term.

Members of Congress cobble together a compromise bill to get tax cuts that will allow both conservatives and liberals to win something. 

1. Infrastructure cuts will be made only to the point to afford the creation of the naval bases. 

2. General government upkeep will be reduced to lower taxes for all Americans. This replaced a cut to the military budget, but it isn't as low of a tax cut as conservatives would like. 

3. As our economy and trade aren't producing jobs, conservatives feel it safe to allow liberals to "win" on immigration. Immigration restrictions are removed, except that no more than 25,000 people of any one group may immigrate here in a year. Immigrants aren't going to migrate to America until our economy is booming. 

4. A new amendment allowing the return, with citizenship restored, of all former Confederates, except those that served as general-rank officers, state governors, or Confederate president, VP, cabinet, legislature, judges, diplomats, or significant lower political officers, and major plantation owners and war-time industrialists.. This would allow 95% of former Confederates to become US citizens again. We estimate that about 40% of those living in Mexico to return to the US, and about 20% of those living in Canada or elsewhere to return to the US. Many have established profitable and respectable lives in their new countries as can be seen by the Confederate dominant Mexican generalship. 

5. Tariffs to Europe will be raised considerably to rebuild industry at home, since we can't trade with any wealthy countries anyway. Congress suggests a Free Trade committee be made at several non-European points of the globe to establish low-tariff trade ties to these regions, while Europe is fighting each other. 

6. A naval base in Hawaii and Panama will be bought outright. The Caribbean is owned by European powers. At some point Cuba (owned by our new enemy Spain) or Bahamas (owned by our former enemy Great Britain, who doesn't trust us) would be most preferable. 

7. Nationalizing the the education system and higher education systems, except for those systems that are run by religious institutions. 

8. The National Bank will give a 10-year forbearance on all federal loans. This is to help those businesses and farmers that have been ruined by this Depression. The return of their prosperity could ease us out of this long depression and allow them to replay their loans in the future. 

9. Congress goes isolationist, and votes not to provide money for any war in Europe, even if the President (this or a future one) declares war. In the event of self-defense, this clause is null and void. 

This bill cobbled together by the various parties is placed on the president's desk. 

[OOC: after your response, I'll type up the State of the Union, as this term is ending]

This is a giant win as I can agree with almost all of it, we will treat it as such a victory going into 1888. I think we got some real reform done and I am happy to be able to go into next year a stronger nation and hopefully we can continue this trend with the blessing of the American people. This bill is absolutely signed.

State of the Union for Election of 1888

----------------------------------------------------------------------

National Strength: We rank behind Great Britain, France, and Germany in national production. We have sunk below Russia in production to number 5. We are on par with Italy, Japan, and Mexico.  

Military Strength: Our professional army is 120,000 men and 64 ships, but this force is costly. We are building a naval base in Hawaii and Panama. 

Foreign Affairs: We have ended our participation with the German Alliance. Neither this old alliance or the British Alliance trusts us. We are pretty much exiled (or self-exiled) from European affairs and European trade. The German Alliance has declared war on us. 

Military: Our military is used to guard our borders. 

Economy: Our economy still has not recovered from an Economic Panic. We are still in a depression, but big government has made efforts to intervene in the economy. 

Trade: Trade is severely stifled. We have raised tariffs tremendously to grow industry at home. We are seeking a Free Trade conference with non-European powers. 

Budget: Our budget is shrinking. We have also cut taxes from government upkeep. 

Social Harmony: Tax revolts and Silver revolts are dwindling. Now the most upset group are labor organizations; although, the silver voters are still unhappy. Blacks in the South fear a return of Confederates; although, they are unlikely to move back to the Black dominated South. 

Immigration: Immigration restrictions have been removed, which upsets some conservatives. A few former Confederates are returning. Those from Canada and Europe are moving to New England, and the Midwest. Those from Mexico and the Caribbean (the bulk of them) are moving to Texas, Louisiana, and Florida. These states are prejudiced against secessionists, and life will be hard for them for now. 

Mood of the people: The people are as depressed as the economy. They still fear a war in Europe. 

Popularity of the Incumbent: Pres. Carpenter has a mixed approval rating. He is praised by those that feared the increased power of Pres. Brooke and the Liberty Party. Conservatives are unhappy with Pres. Carpenter's compromises, as some call him a liberal or "Brooke the Second." Most Americans are happy about avoiding war. Most Americans are unhappy that the Depression has not ended, and they see Carpenter as not having done enough to end it, despite economists seeing that he has laid the ground work for recovery. Reelection is 50/50. 

Party Power: The Liberty Party and the American Progress Party have lost seats to the Conservatives and New Republicans. Some are calling for the Liberty Party and the New Republicans to merge into a "Liberal Party," in order to compete with the growing Conservative Party. No single party dominates Congress and all bills will likely be compromises.  

=============================

Will Pres. Carpenter run for reelection @Reagan04 ? Will the Liberty Party and New Republicans merge into a "Liberal Party" or will they choose to remain independent and hope to win over voters in the second round of an election? @WVProgressive @Hestia11   Will the American Progress Party remain as the party of farmers, where Wesley has built a cult following, or will he also add his party to a new Liberal Party if it is created? Could he join the Conservatives despite being at odds in many areas? @Kingthero

Name and Office: Senator Sven Atkinson

State: Ohio

Party: Republican

Platform:

National Strength: This is an outrage. The fact that we've been backsliding for years is worrying, especially with Mexican and British troops on our border. If we can't keep par with Mexico, then how can we handle them both?

Military Strength: We must maintain on this front until we are out of a foolish war. We should've been exhausting diplomatic efforts in Germany and other places. Republicans did support an end to the alliance, but warned that we couldn't take a war. There is not many ways for Germany to seek to harm us beyond trade, as we're not in Europe and they're not in America. Prepare to invade Cuba as it is Spanish-controlled. 

Foreign Affairs: Send most of our diplomats to London and Paris. Try to negotiate a settlement with the German Alliance. Work on forming alliances with countries like Mexico (and other independent nations in the AMericas) as well as China. 

Military: Continue guarding our borders.

Economy: We support some measures, but we critique the government's policy on trade. It is hard to find people to trade with when we're only making enemies. We have been rather kind in offering concessions, but we warn we cannot offer them forever. We have mostly gotten what we wanted on immigration and emigration, so now we can afford to fight on some fronts.

Trade: Continue this free trade talks, especially with Asian and American nations. Try to break the impasse with Britain and France. We need to keep working at this until something changes. Persistence is key.

Budget: We need to make sure that we adequately fund the government, not just cut things for the sake of cutting things. Conservatives are far too willing to cut programs that are still necessary. They even proposed to cut the military when we were in war? Who does that? Use this point to every end to show that the Republicans support the military.

Social Harmony: Assure black voters that some won't come back and they likely will stay the majority. Work on a complete child labor bill, not the small compromise we were given. Some Republicans critique the Senate Republican leadership for how little we got on that front.

Immigration: Republicans celebrate the lifting of immigration restriction as a victory for the Republican Party. Say that with a Republican president this will be expanded to 50,000 from each nation, and subject to even greater numbers if a country is in crisis.

Mood of the people: We need to work to make sure our people stay safe in our own country. Conservatives and Liberty haven't been able to assuage these concerns, but we can.

Popularity of the Incumbent: We have been able to work with the President, and we acknowledge that. But we need to remind everyone that we have gotten little for our great concessions we have offered. An end to child labor in only mining? A laughingstock. We will pledge to end child labor in nearly all businesses. Immigration was severely damaged by this administration and so was the military. We pledge to work for a strong military and a stronger America.

Party Power: We avoid talking about a potential fusion of the Liberty and Republican parties. We still don't want to be involved with a party that now is fairly disliked in the Northeast and places we'd like to compete in. We will work our hardest to make inroads in the West to stop the growing Progress presence there.

VP Candidate: Lt. Gov. Harry Rothschild of California. More moderate and can appeal better to Westerners.

President Frederick J. Carpenter (C-NY) seeks re-election

National Strength: Conservative policy prescriptions are already beginning to rejuvenate production, I am running on asking the American people to allow me to continue my record of success in this area.

Military: Our military will continue to be on the border, under no circumstances will we be involved in Europe. That being said, I could see a possible invasion of Cuba, but it would depend on economic circumstances, the viability of such an operation, and how much we could benefit from possible concessions from Spain.

Economy: I believe that the tax cuts and deregulation efforts that we have made will begin to fix these issues.

Trade: We will begin to warm relations with Britain back up, as well as with Canada, Mexico, and France.

Budget: I will work to continue my efforts to shrink the government.

Social Harmony: My administration is extremely proud of all the work it has done to assuage the fears of those protesting high taxes, high corruption, and high crime rates, hopefully my prescriptions on those issues will win me some much-needed support. We will continue on that road of fighting against big government.

Immigration: I am glad to see former Confederates returning and I am happy with the compromise on this issue that has been seen, we'll continue such policies.

Mood of the People: We are beginning to see the light of the long tunnel into which President Brooke dug us, I ask the American people re-elect me in this most careful of phases of our recovery and volatile relations, one would be ill-advised to switch horses in the middle of the stream.

Popularity of the Incumbent: To solidify Conservative enthusiasm I point out my initial veto of the compromise bill that was deemed too liberal and settled on more conservative measures. It is true I have compromised, but only when I thought it in line with our goals to reform government policies. We will continue to shrink the government and we will do as much as we can this campaign season to get it out there the opinion of the economists that this administration has been very effective at setting up a recovery, that is why a second term to foster this recovery is so crucial.

Party Power: This is great to hear, hopefully, this Congressional makeup will hold and the Conservatives remain powerholders in Congress so that we may finish what we started in our first term with congressional support.

Vice President McEnroe (C-MO)

APP California Senator Lewis Barker, John Wesley's Assumed Successor, runs and gets endorsed by Wesley

 

Wesley: "I have grown old, and perhaps some fresh blood endorsed by me will both keep the trust of the West and expand beyond our current electoral borders."

 

National Strength: It is time to expand our influence to our South and West. Make strong trade agreements with Japan and China, encourage our businessmen to invest in Central and Southern American countries, and grow our arms industry to attract European buyers back to the American Market. If we can not be that one country where people HAVE to rely on for something, than what do we truly stand for in the global world?

 

Military Strength: Signal to Mexico and Canada that we will not be invading them and getting involved in this European conflict. AMERICAN LIVES SHALL NOT PERISH IN VAIN! We will lower our troop count to 100,000 as a signal that we are not interested in war with Europe.

 

Foreign Affairs: We need to promote a stance of European isolation, but Southern and Western growth. We must progress relations with nations in our sphere of influence. If we can not be the protector of the new world, than all of these European nations could easily ally together and take advantage of millions upon millions of people.

 

Military: Continue to guard our borders. No intervention in any European War. Send troops to our bases under construction in order to protect them from possible rogue activity.

 

Economy: If we build our trade and industries up to par with the modern world, WITHOUT SACRIFICING CRUCIAL FARMING AND MINING INDUSTRIAL PROGRESS, than we can work harmoniously as a Nation to pull ourselves out of the economic crisis.

 

Trade: Build trade relations with Asian and Central and Southern American powers.

 

Budget: Pull our economy out of a depression, pay the debt, then re-invest money to continuously grow our country.

 

Social Harmony: It is time that we put together firm policies to make sure that American blood does not spill the blood of other Americans.

 

Immigration: Use immigration as a means of growth; work with the State Governments to best create plans on how to make immigration efficient and beneficial to the recovering American economy.

 

Mood of the people: The American Progress Party's record has shown that we have always been able to bring people together, and it is time to actually commit to the American People rather than the specific interests of the other people.

 

Popularity of the Incumbent: Carpenter has done good in avoiding war, but literally every compromise made was put together with the interests of the elite and not the interests of the People. So many loopholes exist that the average American is going ot be screwed over in the long run.

 

Party Power: Utilize the growth every single Presidential election to invest into these elections, making the Party garner both more seats and influence, which shall eventually lead to greater electoral victories.

 

VP Candidate: Senator Kenneth Marshall of Texas

McEnroe: I am asking my fellow Missourians and all Americans who want to retain the right way to vote for President Carpenter's reelection. What we have achieved through out the last four years is the freedom we did not experience in decades. If we want to fulfill the promises we need stable leadership my friends and the Carpenter administration is offering this once again. Let us not go back to the times of injustice and false rule that have ruined our country and brought us close to a war within European interests. We must put America first and if you do not want our soldiers, your sons, husbands and brothers fighting overseas a war which is not our concern than vote for the Conservative Party down ballot. That is all I can ask you for to retain our great America. Thank you and God bless you my dear friends!

Sorry , I’m at a movie so it’ll be a bit before I can say anything too much. @CalebsParadox Republicans agree to a fusion ticket for this election, and will offer exploratory talks to forming a party after the Presidential cycle.

@CalebsParadox does this mean that Bunt will endorse the Republican candidate? Will the fusion ticket be called the Liberal Party, or will it somehow just fuse both your names for this election?
