If the SLP wishes to defend Communism, an ideology which conflicts so horribly violates our founding principles, they may, we never have support banning it, but we certainly condemn it and are disappointed to see our political counterparts do the same. This is an issue that shouldn't be partisan, this is an issue of American values and defending the Founding Integrity of America as a nation. All the SLP has is big and scary words to counter our policy proposals. We are unapologetically American and unapologetically patriotic here in the Conservative Party, we're proud to bear that record when no other party can.

OOC: Misread about what you said so I will retract the authoritarian claim. The Socialist Labor Party condemns the violent aspects of communism as well as the authoritarian ideas that shoot off from it e.g. Marxism-Leninism and Stalinism.

Midterms

 

Congress

Liberal 23/48 Senate 43% US Rep

Conservatives 25/48 Senate 39% US Rep

Socialists 0/48 Senate 18% US Rep

 

Conservatives take the Senate, and Conservatives begin to retake the House. Socialists have a good year, especially with expanding influence into New York and Ohio. The President looking over the Puerto Rico crisis cost the Senate in both Texas and Florida.

 

Congress @Reagan04 @Conservative Elector 2 @MBDemSoc @WVProgressive

 

The Statehood of Hawaii - The Hawaiians approve of the matter, and it is now up to Congress to approve.

 

 

 

The president is average, ending midterms with a 55% approval rating and 40% disapproval rating.

 

Update on Puerto Rico

 

Due to the President ignoring Communist Rebels in Puerto Rico, they take over 65% of the island, massacring business owners and all allies of capitalism. Does the President wish to combat the communist threat now?

 

Update on Mexico

 

The current stance of the Mexican Civil War is 56% R/M 34% RCT/F and 10% C

 

The Leaders of the Republican and Monarchist factions have decided that they both agree with option 2.

 

Update on the Phillipines

 

The issue of the Philippines has been deadlocked in Congress, likely in response to other issues.

 

Update on the Dutch

 

The Dutch thank us for our intel, but don't push for any other initiative.

 

@Hestia11

 

First off, it was a mistake that I overlooked that. My numbers were off and I was trying to figure it out. It sounded like it had been a small uprising and had been put down. My mistake. Yes, the President sends forces in for help against the Communists.

 

Good. Hopefully that will resolve tensions.

 

It seems Conservatives won’t come to the table and that’s fine. We won’t be held hostage on this issue.

Name and office: Former Secretary of State Arty J. Talbot

Age: 62

Party: Conservative

Resident state: New York

VP nominee: Vice President Hillsbury @Reagan04 (I would serve as VP as well.)

Platform (see State of the Union):

 

National Strength: It is our duty to get on the top again. During a Talbot administration we will lead the United States to her destiny, to lead the world as it's best and most powerful nation.

Military Strength: As long as we focus on our people without going overseas to fight other countries wars everything is fine here. Make sure our army is always ready to defend our great country.

Foreign Affairs: We will continue to arm the R/M faction. Send them military advisers to end the civil war in front of our doors quickly. This would also reduce the amount of Mexican refugees and immigrants coming to our country. Make sure that the factions hostile to Democracy itself never win ground.

Military: It is fine what our boys are doing down in Mexico, making sure justice and security in order to defend liberty, justice and security. We do not intend to engage in this war directly but it is our duty to defend certain values before the opponents are taking ground and begin threatening our country. Mexico is not Europe. It is our neighbor, bare this in mind.

Economy: We need denationalization, deregulation and tax cuts for our people and their employing industries in order to ensure a booming economy and higher wages.

Trade: Trade is good, trade is important. We will continue to establish good relations with European and third-world countries but not with any radical government. We will not sponsor those ideologies with our quality goods.

Budget: A balanced budget through cut spending was the goal of all Conservative administrations and we intend to keep it that way.

Social Harmony: Unity is an important and if I am elected President I promise to end the rebellions in Puerto Rico.

Immigration: As the Conservative administration has called for literacy and loyalty tests, we will continue to watch those closely who come to our country. We cannot risk that Communism or Fascism takes a foothold in our nation. We will also make sure that not too much immigrants will enter our country in order to protect job opportunities for our own people first.

Mood of the people: We will improve government, make it more efficient and we will address the needs of all people. It does not matter if you are an employee, an employer or a poor immigrant mum, we will work for you to make your life better.

Party Power: As I often said a strong executive can only deliver good results if he has the backing of the Congress. So I urge you to vote Conservative down-ballot. Let's the Liberals that we are a united force. Go to the voting booths!

Popularity of the Incumbent: I run to change the country's direction. The people deserve change they will get it. Thank you and God bless you!

Military: War is an awful thing between nations that should never happen, and that's why I implore national leaders across the world to for a League of Nations. Reduce peace-time army.

Former Vice President Ted Hillsbury (IN) announces bid for President; backed by proteges Gov. Dave Franklin (KY) and Sen. Carly Trebuano (MI)

60

National Strength: It is our job as the Federal Government to ensure Global American industrial hegemony. And it being our responsibility, oddly requires us to step out of the way so that the might of American Industrial power can do the job for us. Through privatization and deregulation, we can go farther than ever before. We will emerge as the most powerful and strongest nation on the planet because we are the greatest nation on the Planet. And it is only because of our unique values of Small Government and Liberty that we are indeed the Greatest, and it is only through the Conservative embrace of those ideals that we achieve our great destiny as a nation.

Military: The Military is the correct size for our current engagements and we'd like to go even further with our blockade in that any ship that attempts to pass the blockade will be plundered and have its goods sent to the Monarcho-Republican faction which President Rodgers first set us on the track of backing and utilizing to liberate Mexico. The Conservative Party is proud to have mediated the Arlington Conference in demonstrating our ability to control the course of international discourse. We are the strongest option for keeping America internationally respected and influential.

Foreign Affairs: As stated above, we will embolden our blockade and shift the entire might of the American Military-Industrial sector into destroying Mexican radicalism as we have abroad in France. Speaking of which, I am glad to see our Free Trading Markets be opened up with France as the Conservatives have long supported. We have every intention to continue expanding influence into Europe and will not be as timid as the Liberals have been to put America on top globally.

Economy/Trade: These two go hand in hand. Much of this campaign and the next four years will hinge on the ability of our private industrial power to grow our trade boom even larger to scoop the economy out of this rut. Liberal big government nationalization techniques will absolutely not work and we cannot pretend as if they will! We need to drive denationalization home to finally unleash the full potential of American Industry. We'll want to play up my own biography with use of small government policy and economic opportunity. We want to open up the European Markets to America, I'd also like to venture into Asian markets.

Budget: Our budget is fine as is, and as we continue to shrink our federal footprint, the budget will shrink with it.

Social Harmony: We need a nation that stands up for its values. This Liberal administration has politicized Education beyond all beliefs, it is absolutely shocking and grotesque what this administration has done to make education a game for their own gain, they've been doing it since Education became an issue and we must stop them. We believe in bringing Americans together through the use of the American values of Capitalism, Constitutionalism, and Christianity. Education should not be a game for Federal politicians to play, it should be the cradle of future generations kept with great care at the state level. As a black boy growing up in Indianapolis, I have only a strong family and its attached values and my rigorous education to thank for lifting me out of Poverty. I wish to extend this to all Americans of all backgrounds. Not only has this administration made a political game of Education and Immigration, they have botched what should be an easy mission in crushing the Anti-American Communist forces in Puerto Rico. The Conservatives are a Pro-America, Law and Order policy and we are appalled that inaction on the part of the President allowed the Communists to advance to the point where they did.

Immigration: As our economy slows, this is probably for the best to make sure that we can continue American support through the 1920s, we are also seeing better quality immigrants coming through, something that warms my heart. We should encourage the best and the brightest to join the greatest nation in the world. We should be strict about who we let in because we should always put America First.

Mood of the People: Here's the deal, the people are tired of Liberal incompetence coloring the government. I completely understand their frustration and we will channel this frustration into Conservative Activism. We need to run hard against the excesses of Big Government and the negative effects which Liberal policy has had on the people of the nation. Communism has gone unmatched and the economy hasn't gotten any better under the weight of such a large government. We stand for the American people who are tired of the Left Wing and big government.

Party Power / Incumbent: The President is unpopular, and we should make it known that that is for good reason. We won't attack him by name, rather use the phrase "This Administration". The tone we shall set should focus on one of Patriotism. The Conservative party should be synonymous with the American Party. A Party that defends Capitalism, Constitutionalism, and Christianity, these 3 values, these 3 Cs go into the Big C to steward America into the future, Conservatism. We will run on strong Foreign Policy and Small Government Economics as well as defense of Traditional American values with which the Conservatives have a long history. Our campaign message is to speak to the inside of Americans who are tired of this administration's incompetence and anti-American attitude and want something more. We will be bombastic of our opposition to Communism and the Socialist embrace of it while the Liberals remain indifferent to its menace. We speak to the Patriotism in every American, lying deep in the soul of the very nation itself. Let Conservatism toll strong the value and worth of American Exceptionalism. Among this Patriotism, we transition to the idea of American pride for what America means for all people of all genders and colors, we will hammer home I am a Patriotic Conservative for opportunity for all people as I rose from being impoverished in the inner city, to run to my own small business, to being elected Vice President and everything in between because of hard work, small government, and American ingenuity and Opportunity. Make it clear I am a Conservative for all people because I believe that is the compassionate path forward for all Americans. I stand for them, so that they may stand for themselves just as President Carpenter did all those years ago when I first began my business and would rise to political office. We are a Party of a new beginning, to make history, to make a change, and to Make America Proud Again. To provide and strong and stable government of, for, and by the people. Not one that will falter, but one that will stand true. Stand true to the people, stand true to American principles, and never falter to those that would oppose either.

Name and office: Gov. Kayla Little (White Woman)

Age: 58

Party: Liberal

Resident state: New Jersey 

VP nominee: Sen. Adam Hutchinson (L-Florida)

Platform (see State of the Union):

National Strength: We have been on a plateau here. Selling arms to the Filipinos can help us increase this standing, but neither the Socialists or the Conservatives see the means to do that. We had a favorable deal to help the Filipinos gain independence, but be patrolled by the American army. 

Military Strength: It is a wonderful thing that we have been able to keep a hold of all of these different territories for the US. More will likely join in the future.

Foreign Affairs: The President's clear victory was on the Mexican civil war. Sending battleships was the right move, which I supported from the Governor's mansion, and my running mate helped shepherd through Congress. 

Military: We break from the past administration on their Puerto Rican fiasco. They should've sent in soldiers from the get-go, and he made a colossal mistake there. If I were President, I would've sent in soldiers as soon as there was even a possibility of someone getting hurt. 

Economy: We need to rev up the economy by having an audacious trade plan with the rest of the world. We've started it with the past administration's trade with the Dutch, Portuguese, and French, but we can do more. Free trade plans help, and if we can secure some with Nordic countries, it could help our economy grow rather than stagnate. In addition, we propose to increase tariffs by a little bit on countries who cooperate with radical ideologies. 

Trade: We are glad that we have diversified our trade, and we want to do more. We want to form trade plans with some of the Nordics, and our friends to the north in Canada. Cross-border trade between us and Canada would flourish if we could find a preferential trade deal with them. 

Budget: The past administration has diversified our trade and in addition, has moved the goal posts on this issue by ten years. We are proud that as Liberals we have opened the government up for everyone, and we have still held the economy in good shape. 

Social Harmony: Puerto Rico was a tragedy, and the President was much too slow to act. While we can agree that the Presidency has its difficulties, the President should have known that something was brewing down there. I would've invited the Puerto Ricans to the meeting that the others got, rather than exclude them.

Immigration: Nothing really to say here.

Mood of the people: Liberals have had victories in our last administration, but the President made some costly errors that cost him the peoples' trust. I would work to restore their faith in the Liberal promise. 

Party Power: Liberals down ballot need to win to prevent a Congressional takeover by the Conservatives. Even if we don't win, we have another great shot in 4 years, and a Liberal Congress could hamstring a Conservative President's efforts, as well as if we do win, could help us usher in a new decade of growth. 

Popularity of the Incumbent: We diverge from him where we must and stick to him where we can. He still holds power in places that we cannot afford to lose, so our criticism can't be overly harsh.

1924 Election

Welcome to the election of 1924! This election, we have seen the Liberal popularity decline, while the other two parties are picking up the former Liberals. Communism was brought up as an issue for the first time in politics, and should put a scare into voters. The major issues for this election are communism, foreign affairs, and trade.

 

Primaries

We had two parties with significant primaries. The first one, which was a race of two identical people, was the socialist primary. Many socialist voters tend to be anti-war, pro-labor, but not necessarily socially progressive other than for equal rights in labor (these aren't communists, and the small red scare in Puerto Rico shifted voter focus away from social progressivism.)

 

Both candidates had identical platforms, with Wilson's being much more precise, and Thomas's being much more contingent on individual factors. Wilson is going to be favored in States focused more on labor, while Thomas will get votes in States that are more involved in the war effort (due to his limited intervention versus complete denouncement).

 

Wilson: 58.4%

 

Thomas: 41.6%

 

Wilson's hold on the industrial States won him handily in the Primary.

 

The next primary was yet again between Talbot and Hillsbury. Talbot is seen as a perennial candidate at this pint, however we is still much more attractive to industrial states than Hillsbury, who is popular in the south.

 

Talbot: 65.2%

 

Hillsbury: 34.8%

 

Like usual, the industrial states heavily determine who is picked, and Talbot utilizes his life's savings to run a hard campaign against Hillsbury. Many see this as Talbot's last chance.

 

General Election Round 1

 

Talbot/ Hillsbury (Con) 264 EV 48% PV [All States but the ones below. (Including HI)]

Little/Hutchinson (Lib) 255 EV 31% PV [NV, ID, NM, ND, NE, KS, OK, MN, MO, WI, TN, AL, GA, SC, VA, OH, PA, NJ, CT, RI, MA, NH]

Wilson/Williams (Soc) 15 EV 21% PV [MI]

 

RP Note: The Liberals managed to force the Conservatives into Round 2 after pulling pro-war voters back after implementing pro-intervention and anti-radical agendas.

 

General Election Round 2

 

Talbot/ Hillsbury (Con) 288 EV 51% PV [All States but the ones below. (Including HI)] [[PA flipped Conservative, and MI went Conservative]]

Little/Hutchinson (Lib) 246 EV 49% PV [NV, ID, NM, ND, NE, KS, OK, MN, MO, WI, IL, TN, AL, GA, SC, VA, OH, PA, NJ, CT, RI, MA, NH] [[Gained IL]]

 

RP Note: The Conservatives managed to narrowly take this election, and signals a time when elections are now evenly split. This election saw the rise of the Socialist party, being 2# in 3 states and 1# in Michigan. However, this could be the peak of the Socialist party, as paranoia entangles the American landscape (not as bad at this time as in our timeline).

 

Region Breakdown (Pop Vote)

 

New England (ME, NH, VT, MA, CT, RI) : Tossup

Industrial Centers (NY, PA, OH, IL) : Lean Conservative

Industrial Midwest (WI, MI, IN) : Tossup

West Coast (CA, OR, WA, HI) : Lean Conservative

Southwest (AZ, NM, OK, TX) : Lean Liberal

Upper South (SC, NC, VA, TN) : Lean Liberal

West (NV, ID, MT, WY, CO, ND, SD, NE, KS) : Tossup

Swing States (MN, IA, NJ, DE, FL) : Lean Conservative

 

Congress

Liberal 22/48 Senate 37% US Rep

Conservatives 25/48 Senate 45% US Rep

Socialists 1/48 Senate 18% US Rep

The President speaks to the people: I thank all the people who voted for Vice President Hillsbury and me and I promise to work for you and all the people we could not convince yet. I will work hard for your interests in order to convince you now. The Conservative Party hopefully is able to have your support when it comes to tackle the issues which are concerning our own people. We will defend the interests of the people who voted for us and we will get a step closer to those who were not encouraged to vote for us this time. I promise you that people will not regret their choice to vote for us. Let's stand united as America because the United States are the single greatest nation on earth and we will work to fulfill our destiny. Thank you and God bless you.

This is an interesting election. It seems to show that the country seems to have no regional preferences, except maybe West Coast is a Conservative area.

I have trends for certain regions, as each region has key issues, but the two main parties have done a great job of numbing specific issues and only making some issues divisive, even though both have separate intentions.

 

Also, we lack a social split as we did in our timeline, and its much more issue based.

State of the Union after the Election of 1924

 

National Strength: We rank 4th in the list of the top 10 countries: Russia, Great Britain, Germany,  United States, Japan, France, Austria, Italy, Canada, Mexico.

Military Strength: Our professional army is 60,000 men and 52 ships, with a reserve army of 120,000 men solely for defense. We have naval bases in Hawaii, Cuba, Panama, St. Pierre and Miquelon, and American Polynesia.

Foreign Affairs: We are currently arming the Republican/Monarchist faction in the Mexican coup, as well as providing 6 battleships as a loan. The current stance of the Mexican Civil War is 80% R/M and 20% RCT/F.

Military: Our military is active. Our navy is blockading the Gulf of Mexico, and our army is helping secure goods across the US-Mexican border, as well as fighting Puerto Rican communist rebels. We own 55% of the island now, and have lost barely anybody.

Economy: The economy is still stagnate.

Trade: We trade 20% with non-European powers, 18% with Britain, 18% with Germany, 19% with France, and 25% with other non-radical European powers. Trade is growing even further.

Budget: Our budget is currently balanced, with 15% of our spending going to paying off our debt, aimed to be paid off by 1930. Our budget consists of the income of 30% taxes 37% tariff 20% overseas territories/canals and 13% nationalized industries, and the expenditure of 55% military 10% gov. upkeep 15% infrastructure 5% disaster aid and 15% debt repayment.

Social Harmony: The country is basically united, except for rebellions in Puerto Rico.

Immigration: Immigration has kept the same pace over the past four years.

Mood of the people: The mood of the people is moody. Nobody is too mad about anything, but they are a bit fed up with the Government.

Party Power: Conservatives have the Senate, and the Liberals have the House plurality.

 

Events and Decisions for March 1925 - March 1929 for Pres. Talbot @Conservative Elector 2

1) Public Broadcasting

President Ryburn established a Government-controlled station on the radio to be dedicated to broadcasting Government functions. What functions do you wish to broadcast, and do you wish for this station to broadcast 24/7 or only when necessary?

2) Cuban Independence

You have gotten news that the Cubans desire independence; however, trusted sources say that the vote was rigged and the people actually wish to remain as either a U.S. territory or a State. How do you wish to handle this issue?

3) Puerto Rican Revolt

Do you wish to commit anymore troops in the area, or do you wish to keep with the current progress?

4) The Issue of Poland

Poland, a communist State, has recently fallen into an economic depression. Germany wishes to annex portions of land from them, and so do Russia. Russia and Germany are monarchies. Recently, both countries agreed to invade Poland, while Italy and Greece decided to retaliate by pushing forces through the west Balkans towards the Southern German border. The Republics decided to remain neutral, except for Austria, which allows the radical troops to cross into Germany. Germany is at risk as crucial industries may be destroyed by the radicals before they can defeat them. 

 

Do we wish to send troops to Germany to prevent industries from capitulating and possibly damaging the global economy further, do we wish to counter-invade Italy or Greece to establish pro-capitalist Governments, do we wish to only remain vocal and denounce a side in the war, or any other plan?

5) Rise of Evolution

Unlike our timeline, not only the South, but most of the United States are still pro-creationism. Recently, Massachusetts passed a law banning evolution teachings, and a trial on a middle school teacher for teaching evolution has begun. Pro-evolution regions of the U.S, mainly industrial States, call for the President to defend a sense of "free will", while other States call for the President to either ignore or establish a pro-creationism attitude.

6) Aerial Expansion

To this day, examples of air combat have not been seen, making the air industry much less popular as it was in our timeline. However, a young man named Charles Landers recently crossed the Atlantic Ocean in a plane. The military has come to you wishing to increase military funding so that research and building of planes that can cross the ocean can be made.

7) Communist Mexico Falls

Finally, a decisive blow has been made to the Mexican Communists, making the war almost concluded in Mexico. 80% of land is controlled by the Monarch Republic, while 20% is controlled by the Fascist and Reactionary rebels. 

😎 Japan invades Dutch Pacific Colonies

The Japanese have begun invading Dutch colonies in the Pacific. Do you wish to send a military force to the Dutch islands, convince other colonizers like Britain and France to intervene? We have Hawaii and American Polynesia close to the Dutch colonies.

9) Philippines Invaded

To our surprise, Japan has also invaded the Philippines, probably getting information that the status of the islands was conflicted. Do we wish to protect our disputed claim, or do we wish to let them fall?

 

Also, if we do choose to wage war against the Japanese, do we call it defensive and add our reserves, or offensive and increase our active military?

 

Also, do we wish to maintain a balanced budget, or spend into the debt to fund the military?

10) Free

Anything not included here you wish to implement?

As people are fed up with the government I think it is highly important that we communicate our work directly to them. We need to let them know what we are doing and essentially how we are working for them. From what I have learned during my years of being a  congressman, people are often not familiar with their representatives and view them as the establishment far away from the problems on the West Coast, the Middle West or the South for example. Since I am asked what I want to see broadcast I would like to see a daily talk show introduce in which various congressmen are welcomed to be interviewed and are speaking to their constituents. Additionally another field in which we need to have a certain amount of broadcasting is foreign and economic policies so people are aware of what is happening in the world and how the economy develops. I do not foresee any reason for a 24/7 broadcast but we need to come on air more than once a day in order to reflect the needs of our people in various time zones. Another thing I could imagine is to start presidential debates  before an election. Why are waiting another 40 years for the first debate, when we can have a radio already now?

As a Conservative I strongly oppose the intention of people leaving our nation and I trust those reports that these results were rigged by shady independence activists. Currently I support the island remaining a U.S. territory but before I make a final decision I would like to inquire the voting potential of the Cubans if we admit them as a state. @Kingthero We can risk further unrest.

We will send more troops and this engagement once and for all. We will not negotiate with terrorists and therefore I support sizing our military force there. I trust in our boys to finish this mission quickly.

At this point we support selling arms heavily to the Germans, so they can make there armies ready to win both engagements. We support both the German and Russian claims in Poland unless we cannot establish a capitalist government there ourselves. Poland is a failed state and if it is not possible for us to get their regime down, we will support our European allies to do this job. Secondly, it is inconceivable from Austria to allow terrorist troops crossing their country, when their only aim is to destroy the German Monarchy. We demand the Austrian ambassador to come here and explain this behavior. We strongly urge the Austrian government to reverse their decision otherwise all options are on the table and we think on putting sanctions on them first. 

Personally, I think it would be the best to counter-invade those failed and terrorist-occupied countries to end their hostilities once and for all. Italy has proven themselves as evil-doers for decades now. We cannot allow those Communists to laugh at us while they are planning to undermine the current World order. I would like to inquire the chances of winning a war to establish pro-capitalist governments in Italy and Greece. @Kingthero If they are good enough we will take this step.

As a conservative I strongly support efforts to establish a pro-creationism attitude. Therefore I congratulate the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for their step. However, I do not believe that the Federal government can intervene in this situation besides denouncing evolution in public. We advise the states to handle this issue. To show our good will to the pro-evolution groups and to calm them down, we could imagine to pardon the teacher in Massachusetts this time, but this cannot become the standard in this country. We would also like to communicate this decision to Massachusetts officials beforehand, so they understand that the federal government does not want to intervene with their affairs, but that we want to calm down the social unrest we are awaiting. America was founded on values of God fearing men and we remain a society based on values and we will defend those values of course.

The interests of our generals are the interests of the people who they are defending. Those people have voted for me and therefore it is my duty to assure safety for them. We are happy to agree to the army's proposal. Perhaps we can use our newly built planes already when we defend a free Europe as mentioned above.

It is a very good news that Communist Mexico has fallen. We will never allow this hostile ideology to establish a foothold in this world. We will continue to aid the Monarchist/Republican faction and if there are a few Reactionaries left who are willing to join the conservative monarchist armies we would be glad to see the fascist faction destroyed more quickly. There is still time to avoid the final downfall.

We want to talk to the Japanese ambassador first, but if they do not renounce their claims we will need to wage war against them, since the Japanese have shown nothing but hostility against all other nations starting with their illegitimate claim of the Korean peninsula. It is a defensive war of course, since they where attacking our righteous claim of the Philippines. If Japan would have not shown such an aggressive foreign policy we would have never put the option of going to a war on the table. 

If we need to go the war it will sadly be necessary to spend into the debt, but advise my military and financial experts to avoid it as much as possible. Reach out to Britain and France as well.

Anything not included here you wish to implement?

I would like to order a closer surveillance of all immigrants incoming from nations hostile to the United States. Currently this includes besides possible others Italy, Greece, Poland, Japan, Mexico and Austria. We need to make sure that foreign agents are not trying to undermine our free society. Additionally watch potential Communist and fascist gatherings within the United States.

Senate Minority Leader Lucas Brown (L-NH) sends a private letter to the President on behalf of Liberals in the Senate. Liberals would not, under any circumstance, back a surveillance bill that would include Republics like Austria and Mexico. Liberals also warn that it is a matter of National Security not to be at war in Asia and in Europe at the same time. Sen. Brown also warns that Germany just gobbled up Denmark, and now want Poland as well. There is reason to believe that Germany is war-like and wanting more land. Liberals would support arms dealing with the Germans, but would not support declarations of war on Italy and Greece until Japan has been dealt with first. Any declaration of war on Greece or Italy following a declaration on Japan would not be supported in Congress by Liberals. It is out of the question of a declaration on Austria, which would be vehemently opposed.

The President thanks Senator Brown for the Liberal Party's response. If we finally win in Mexico we consider this country as an ally and we do not foresee any reason to watch them. This bill would include Mexico only if the Fascist faction is gaining territory or if Fascists are trying to send their holdouts to our nation. Fascism will never be tolerated within our society and I hope that we have Liberals at our side here. For Austria: we inquired a meeting with their ambassador first, there behavior is not tolerable but if they will explain it wisely we can see what we can do for them. The President does not believe in any hostility from Austria at this current state but hope that Liberals see the need too, that nations with openly aggressive governments like Greece, Poland, Italy and Japan need to be watched in order to protect our society and our own people.

We do not denounce the German claim of Poland for the fact that German is a monarchy and Poland is a communist government. We agree with the Liberals that Japan's aggressive foreign policy is a more urgent issue and we are happy to see that arm deals with Germany have Liberal support.

The Socialist Labor Party condemns the President's decision to deny the Nation of Cuba's right to self-determination if the vote was not rigged but also condemns if the reports from sources are true that the vote was rigged that another referendum should be held this time with international observers present to ensure that a free and fair referendum is held.

The Socialist Labor Party also condemns the President's decree that the nations of Poland, Italy and Greece are failed states as there is no evidence that is provided to back up that statement, the President seems to be calling them failed states seemingly because they have different government types and economic systems from the United States, Germany and Russia and the Socialist Labor Party also strongly condemns the misuse of the word terrorist to describe these nations as they seem to have use violence or intimidation for political means at this stage the nations they are acting like terrorists at this stage are actually the United States, Russia and Germany. The Socialist Labor party completely condemns the openly aggressive and expansionist policies of all three governments of the three capitalist nations mentioned above.

The Socialist Labor Party will once again proudly stand against the unconstitutional actions of the Conservative Party on the issue of education as the party is again endorsing the teachings of one faith over another whilst holding the office of President.

 

 

The Socialist Labour again condemns the expansionist foreign policy of Japan but also questions how waging a war against Japan can possibly be defensive if they have not attacked us and only has attacked the territory of Spain which the Conservative President apparently thinks is somehow an attack on us because we have some very dubious claims to the land that has been attacked. 

  

The Socialist Labor Party will vehemently oppose any of the proposed bigoted immigration legislation proposed by the President.
