Cool to see you playing  here :)!

What I would like to do would be: A Far-Right on economy which would become Libertarian with the time (so extreme left on society with respect of different periods and far right on economy).

What character could it be :)? A Senator? A Governor? A ruler of party of course but if we can add some spice to the RP I'm there for!

@Conservative Elector 2 thanks for the invitation!

You can be any character you want, you just either join a party by running a candidate under their party, or you create your own (creating your own is a super slow buildup though).

Cuba and Puerto Rico become States. Cuba has 20 electoral votes, and Puerto Rico has 8.

 

China is still bogged down in Korea.

 

Our military gets bogged down in Japan. We and the French both lose one thousand men, and Japan loses two thousand.

 

Our reserves are now ready to join the invasion, and all troops are ready for more orders from the commander in chief @Conservative Elector 2

 

SOLDIER STATUS:

 

Active- 32,000 (22,000 in the Pacific Front and 10,000 protecting bases and in Puerto Rico)

Active Reserve- 50,000 (Ready for Invasions)

Inactive Reserve- 70,000 (Are ready to be deployed.)

Navy: 50 ships.

French: 34,000 Men + Naval support

 

WAR POPULARITY:

 

These bogged up invasions barely effect war popularity, as it lingers around 88%.

I order our reserves to join our boys and the French with helping in the invasion. If we succeed in Japan, we will deploy to Korea in order to get our job done there. No changes to dropping propaganda leaflets, add for the Korean front an appeal to Korean independence activists so more percent of the population rebel against their colonists and join our efforts. We must remember them that Japan already betrayed them by their invasion years ago.

Hold an Admission to the Union state festival in the newly welcomed states, so we get our American spirit of liberty and freedom there.

I also would like to ask my dear friends Vice President Hillsbury and Senator Trebuano @Reagan04 to create an economical/financial program for our re-election and the aftermath of the war. The needs of our vets and their families should be considered strongly. Once the war is won, our economy will be booming nonetheless if my analyst's predictions are going to be true, because we will help to build up an America-friendly industry in the areas we are now liberating.

In the days after the war we need cooperation more than any hostilities. We will also need to make sure to guard those areas for a certain amount of time in order to quell down any potential new uprisings of extremist ideologies.

(OOC: It seems that history changed a LOT)

(So no WW1 and monarchies in Europe as well as Austria-Hungary still consistent, is it right?)

As a side note, the current composition of monarchies in Europe consists of France, Britain, Germany, Ottomans, and Russia, while the republics are Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, Belgium, all of Scandinavia minus Denmark which was split up, and a reformed Austria-Hungary. The radicals are Italy and Greece. The rest are neutral, with mixed governments. 

 

The U.S. had the 49th State of Hawaii, the 50th State of Cuba, and the 51st State of Puerto Rico.

 

The economic dynamic is about where it was irl, but slightly more left, while the social dynamic is a decent difference to the right.

 

We haven't had a WW1, as the last major war was more a bigger Franco-Prussian war.

Although racial tensions are not as big as in RL. Blacks seem not to be oppressed as much and segregation is not an issue yet.

Black dominance of the South during the mid 1800's lead to a much smoother race divide, as there wasn't a huge growth of inequality poverty. 

 

There is discrimination against asians, but about the same as irl.

China takes heavy casualties in Korea, but they have a lot of people and hold their current line. The supply line to Korea was broken by us, so Japanese troops will eventually be out of supplies.

 

Japan launches a surprise attack before our reserves arrive, pushing us back 20 miles and killing 1,500 Americans and 500 French troops. We only kill 1,000 Japanese.

 

Our reserves finally join the invasion, but in limited numbers due to supply issues. However, 10,000 active reserve units strike down the east coast, pushing down 10 miles and killing 10,000 Japanese soldiers while only losing 500 men.

 

SOLDIER STATUS:

 

Active- 30,500 (20,500 in the Pacific Front and 10,000 protecting bases and in Puerto Rico)

Active Reserve- 49,500 (Ready for Invasions)

Inactive Reserve- 70,000 (Are ready to be deployed.)

Navy: 50 ships.

French: 33,500 Men + Naval support

Japanese: ~120,000 men left on Japanese mainland, ~45,000 on Korean peninsula.

 

WAR POPULARITY:

 

War popularity is the same, around 88%.

 

@Conservative Elector 2 you are still President during election season, so you get to do one more military turn.

 

Also, Austria decided to postpone trade negotiations.

 
State of the Union for Election of 1928
 

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

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

Military Strength: Our professional army is ~30,000 men and 50 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 at war with the Japanese Empire. We are winning this war, and it is us, the French, and the Chinese against just Japan.

Military: Our military is active. Our navy is fully deployed around Japan, obstructing supply lines to Korea and protecting our invasion and supply lines. We control thirty miles of northern Japan, and forty miles of the northern east coast of Japan. We have 80,000 troops in the fight, and the French have 33,500 in the fight, against a force of 120,000 Japanese soldiers.

Economy: The economy is on a decline, as industries shift towards wartime production. Some people predict this war may branch out towards other wars, and may be acting hasty changing our industries.

Trade: We trade 20% with non-European powers, 18% with Britain, 17% with Germany, 21% with France, and 24% with other non-radical European powers. Trade declines a bit as we are at war.

Budget: Our budget is currently balanced, with 5% of our spending going to paying off our debt, aimed to be paid off by 1934. Our budget consists of the income of 40% taxes 38% tariff 12% overseas territories/canals and 10% nationalized industries, and the expenditure of 70% military 10% gov. upkeep 15% infrastructure and 5% debt repayment.

Social Harmony: The country is united strongly during our defensive war against the Japanese Empire.

Immigration: Immigration has begun to grow at a healthy pace.

Mood of the people: People are happy in the sense they are proud of their country's goals, but there are some worries about the economy.

Party Power: Conservatives have the Senate, and the Liberals have the House majority if including the sociaists.

Popularity of the Incumbent: The president is outrageously popular, ending midterms with a 75% approval rating and 18% disapproval rating

@Kingthero I'm pretty sure Conservatives have the House plurality with 47%. The Liberals have 42% and Socialists 11%.So there is a Left Wing Majority but Conservative plurality.

Create an intergovernmental organization tasked to promote international co-operation and to create and maintain international order. Give economic assistance to all the nations affected by the war whether they be friend or foe in the war so that they can rebuild their economies which should stop the forces of dangerous radicalism from either the anti-democratic far-right and far-left. The Socialist Labor Party pledges to support democracy, self-determination, free trade, and principles of non-aggression in American post-war foreign policy.

Budget: A deficit is fine. Focus on how the government can make people's lives better.

Social Harmony: No Comment.

Immigration: All immigrants are welcome as long as they have not committed serious crimes, repeal the Immigration Values and Assimilation Act of 1914. 

Mood of the people: No Comment. 

Popularity of the Incumbent: The President's third to last and last demand for Post-war Japan are absolutely insane and will cause resentment in Japan toward the US and its allies post-war. 

 

Party Power: The two largest parties seem intent, even though at times it seems like there is only a very large capitalist and one smaller socialist party at times, on destroying the only party which seems to be providing any actual opposition to this government or any opposition to the way in which the country is run. Campaign vigorously against both the Liberal and Conservative Parties in both the Presidential Race and Congressional Races.

Extra: Create a remembrance day to remember the American and American Allies troops lost in all wars.  

 

VP nominee: Glen Maurer (PA).

@Conservative Elector 2 you are still President during election season, so you get to do one more military turn.

Also, Austria decided to postpone trade negotiations.

I order another 30.000 reserve to be deploy to Japan and I order all others to push the Japanese back. We should also think on using potential guerrilla tactics in order to demoralize Japanese troops. If we continue to attack the Japanese and push them back severely, we could get them to reduce their troops in Korea, which could make it more easy for the Chinese to liberate Pyongyang and other industrial areas in the north (which we could use for our own war efforts) while also getting control over Seoul and many other large cities in the agrarian south. I also want to see all actions to be coordinated with our French brothers.

Currently we are only saying to Austria that we are ready when they are. I would also like to meet the British and Russian ambassadors again in order to inquire if Britain is still hesitant about joining our war efforts and what Russia's position is . Britain and especially Russia entering the war on our side could be a large blow to the Japanese moral. I would also like to know if Germany would be ready to formally declare war on Japan, because we helped them with Poland. Germany would barely get to see the front considering the distance.

In a meeting with the Conservative party leaders and many Senator and Governors I also made up a concept a first concept for reorganizing Japan after the war, when we decide to be more or less independent again.

  • Unseat the current Tenno and find a loyal noblemen who is willing to carry on the tradition as the new emperor and who is willing to unite the people.
  • Establish the elected post of Prime Minister, he shall be elected to a maximum of two 4 year terms. He shall be the actual head of state while the Tenno is only allowed to hold a ceremonial office.
  • Establish a Senate and a House of Representative like in our country which is composed of two Senators and a certain amount of Representatives which represent their states.
  • Reorganize the Japanese prefectures into states with an elected Governor and Senates/Houses on state level
  • Establish a Supreme Court with nine justices appointed by the prime minister for life
  • Require the Japanese to ban all far-left and far-right parties which could emerge
  • The US still demands the right to unseat the Tenno and/or the Government at any time when their action get hostile against our government 
  • The Japanese Army will be prohibited from being used in any offensive war except if we ask them for help
  • We also demand the Japanese rulers to respond directly to the POTUS

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.

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. 

These are not efforts to move the Liberal Party forward. This are efforts to move America forward, so I fully endorse this plan and order my generals to cooperate with Liberal lawmakers in order to make this plan happen as well.

Popularity of the Incumbent: We will not hit the President in any terms, as he is popular and a rather good man.

We thank Senator Crankford for saying this. It is highly appreciated when the President was able to deliver results which united our great nation even more.

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: Lloyd Thomas, Presbyterian minister (Essentially Norman Thomas).

Race and gender, if other than white male: White Male.

Party: Socialist Labor Party.

Resident state: New York (Born in Ohio).

Platform (see State of the Union): 

National Strength: Aim to move up one or two ranks in the top 10 country rankings.

Military Strength: Maintain the military and navy at the troop and ship levels they are currently at if the budget allows for it. Maintain naval bases in Hawaii, Cuba, Panama, St. Pierre and Miquelon, and American Polynesia if those territories consent to them being maintained, withdraw from them if consent is not given. 

Foreign Affairs: Enact a policy of strict neutrality only engage in warfare if we are attacked or for humanitarian reasons (Or in exceptional circumstances). Help the nations which are temporarily occupied after the war with Japan establish democratic governments. Create an intergovernmental organization tasked to promote international co-operation and to create and maintain international order. Give economic assistance to all the nations affected by the war whether they be friend or foe in the war so that they can rebuild their economies which should stop the forces of dangerous radicalism from either the anti-democratic far-right and far-left. The Socialist Labor Party pledges to support democracy, self-determination, free trade, and principles of non-aggression in American post-war foreign policy.

Military: Have the military and navy perform training exercises to be prepared for any other possible attacks or potential humanitarian intervention. Continue the war against Japan until the nation has been defeated.

Economy: Try and institute a progressive tax system, attempt to have at least one state-owned company in each industry and encourage the creation of workers co-operatives, institute a national 8-hour working day and give all workers two days off at the end of the week (Saturday and Sunday), Long-term aims are to establish a universal health care system and a social security system, institute heavy regulations on businesses whether they be publicly or privately owned, allow for trade unions to be formed if they are not already, institute a national living wage, continue the policy of bimetallism for small denominations of currency (under one dollar) and switch to using the civil war currency of greenbacks for denominations larger than a dollar, maintain the national bank as it is if one exists create one if there isn't one, maintain the independent treasury if there is one and create one if there isn't one, create an income tax if there isn't one already, repeal alcohol prohibition laws, tax and regulate alcohol instead, create a federal reserve if there is not one, enact legislation which makes it illegal for businesseses public or private to discriminate on the basis of age, colour, convictions for which a pardon has been granted or a record suspended, disability, ethnicity, family status, gender identity, genetic characteristics, marital status, nationality, race, religion, sex, and sexual orientation, pass much stricter enviromental and wildlife protection legislation. Establish a Bureau of Veterans Affairs which will resolve issues regarding compensation following service; provide military pensions; provide assistance with housing; assistance with obtaining post-service employment; arrange for burials in cemeteries designated for veterans; create a state pension; also establish a universal mental health care system; build tens of thousands of new houses; reconstitute abandoned and vacant buildings into housing facilities and other types of accommodation; the creation of remembrance day to remember the American and American Allies troops lost in all wars.   

Trade: Create free trade deals with nations if they agree to strict protections for workers and the natural resources of the nations involved 

Budget: A deficit is fine. Focus on how the government can make people's lives better.

Social Harmony: No Comment.

Immigration: All immigrants are welcome as long as they have not committed serious crimes, repeal the Immigration Values and Assimilation Act of 1914. 

Mood of the people: No Comment. 

Popularity of the Incumbent: The President's third to last and last demand for Post-war Japan are absolutely insane and will cause resentment in Japan toward the US and its allies post-war. 

 

Party Power: The two largest parties seem intent, even though at times it seems like there is only a very large capitalist and one smaller socialist party at times, on destroying the only party which seems to be providing any actual opposition to this government or any opposition to the way in which the country is run. Campaign vigorously against both the Liberal and Conservative Parties in both the Presidential Race and Congressional Races.

Extra: Create a remembrance day to remember the American and American Allies troops lost in all wars.  

 

VP nominee: Glen Maurer (PA).

Filled out.

We would like to point out that this has been a first draft and no finished concept. However, we think that there is a need for us to control what is going on there. 

OOC: The Japanese Army has actually become self defence force in RL, they are constitionally forbidden to engage in other warfare. However, the Abe government wants to change this for a long time now but there are high obstacles to change the constitution. High majorities in both chambers and a referendum. The Japanese engagement in Iraq was seen as highly controversial therefore.

China takes heavy casualties in Korea, but they have a lot of people and hold their current line. The supply line to Korea was broken by us, so Japanese troops will eventually be out of supplies.

 

Japan launches a surprise attack before our reserves arrive, pushing us back 20 miles and killing 1,500 Americans and 500 French troops. We only kill 1,000 Japanese.

 

Our reserves finally join the invasion, but in limited numbers due to supply issues. However, 10,000 active reserve units strike down the east coast, pushing down 10 miles and killing 10,000 Japanese soldiers while only losing 500 men.

 

SOLDIER STATUS:

 

Active- 30,500 (20,500 in the Pacific Front and 10,000 protecting bases and in Puerto Rico)

Active Reserve- 49,500 (Ready for Invasions)

Inactive Reserve- 70,000 (Are ready to be deployed.)

Navy: 50 ships.

French: 33,500 Men + Naval support

Japanese: ~120,000 men left on Japanese mainland, ~45,000 on Korean peninsula.

 

WAR POPULARITY:

 

War popularity is the same, around 88%.

 

@Conservative Elector 2 you are still President during election season, so you get to do one more military turn.

 

Also, Austria decided to postpone trade negotiations.

 
State of the Union for Election of 1928
 

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

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

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 at war with the Japanese Empire. We are winning this war, and it is us, the French, and the Chinese against just Japan.

Military: Our military is active. Our navy is fully deployed around Japan, obstructing supply lines to Korea and protecting our invasion and supply lines. We control thirty miles of northern Japan, and forty miles of the northern east coast of Japan. We have 80,000 troops in the fight, and the French have 33,500 in the fight, against a force of 120,000 Japanese soldiers.

Economy: The economy is on a decline, as industries shift towards wartime production. Some people predict this war may branch out towards other wars, and may be acting hasty changing our industries.

Trade: We trade 20% with non-European powers, 18% with Britain, 17% with Germany, 21% with France, and 24% with other non-radical European powers. Trade declines a bit as we are at war.

Budget: Our budget is currently balanced, with 5% of our spending going to paying off our debt, aimed to be paid off by 1934. Our budget consists of the income of 40% taxes 38% tariff 12% overseas territories/canals and 10% nationalized industries, and the expenditure of 70% military 10% gov. upkeep 15% infrastructure and 5% debt repayment.

Social Harmony: The country is united strongly during our defensive war against the Japanese Empire.

Immigration: Immigration has begun to grow at a healthy pace.

Mood of the people: People are happy in the sense they are proud of their country's goals, but there are some worries about the economy.

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

Popularity of the Incumbent: The president is outrageously popular, ending midterms with a 75% approval rating and 18% disapproval rating
