@Conservative Elector 2

This one got a super high roll, gonna have some fun with this one.

 

A group of merchants, men that are very patriotic about the war effort, and knowing that the Italian Pirates would be left alone, decided to form their own merchant navy, buy surplus Gatling Guns and cannons, and sail down and one by one mowed down every single Italian Pirate ship that ever crossed into the Western Hemisphere with no casualties. They flew under the Polish flag in order to act anonymous, and that flag even attracted their victims even more.

 

The Italian Pirate threat is hereby extinct. The country of Italy is too embarrassed to protect its pirate mission.

 

This response was seen by the People as avoiding the issue at hand, and the Governor decided to keep things open. Smokeouts become a more frequent norm in New York City, though the public is more aware of the issue.

 

For an increase in the Infrastructure budget over the course of the next 4-12 years, D.C. will look very professional and make our Capital shine among others in the world.

 

Both sides do not get along, and nothing of note was accomplished.

 

The sub-department is created, however no progress is done.

 

Trade gets slightly boosted, but no formal deals are made.

 

The Philippines is now independent.

 

Advertising stirs some interest, but people were already interested due to the high support for the war.

 

SOLDIER STATUS:

 

China makes an extraordinary push into Korea, officially making all 45,000 Japanese Troops in Korea surrender. China sends to us that while they will continue to occupy Korea until the War's end, they plan on annexing it into their empire after the war.

 

Japan inflicts heavy casualties on our men before the invasion, causing 4,500 American deaths, 3,500 French deaths, and 3,000 Japanese deaths.

 

However, once the additional troops arrive, American and French troops order an invasion of Japan, pushing 140 additional miles into Japan's heartland. We are now assaulting the city of Sendai, however word has just reached that before you could even organize plans, the city surrendered and your forces pushed an additional 20 miles into Japan. Fukushima is now under siege.

 

We lost 4,000 men and France lost 1,500, but the Japanese lost 9,000.

 

Active- 26,500 (16,500 in the Pacific Front and 10,000 protecting bases)

Active Reserve- 75,000 (Ready for Invasions)

Inactive Reserve- 40,000 (Are ready to be deployed.)

Navy: 50 ships.

French: 28,500 Men + Naval support

Japanese: ~110,000 men left on Japanese mainland.

 

WAR POPULARITY:

 

War popularity took a small hit, and is now around 86%.

The Socialist Labor Party will vote in favour of legislation that allows Alaska to become a State as they have consented to become one.

The Socialist Labor Party will vote in favour of legislation that lowers taxes for small businesses but will not vote in favour of legislation that lowers taxes for corporations and larger businesses. 

The Socialist Labor Party will vote against introducing any kind of conscription legislation as service in the armed forces should be a choice and not an obligation.

Great!

So than I will instruct my Secretary of Commerce to reach out for formal deals with these countries. (African? Asian? South American countries? I cannot name specifically)

So China about our desire to see an independent Korea? We will have to outline our interests in a meeting with the Chinese ambassador I guess. However, we are still thankful for their help against the Japanese.

So let's continue to overtake Fukushima. Hopefully they will realize that it is better to surrender now instead of continuing to fight for this lost cause. Promote the example of Sendai as the way to lessen blood-shed.

Conservative Dissent

Vice President Hillsbury schedules a meeting with the President in which he requests him to quietly withdraw any consideration of conscription as Conservative rank and file seems weary of this potential violation of Liberty. The Vice President informs the President that he persinally opposes conscription but will of course support the administration, Senate and House Leadership on the other hand, might pay lip service, but will have a hard time keeping the Conservative Congressional caucus together for a working majority.

After considering this again, we decided to drop any advances regarding conscription. It was just an idea.

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.

I have always believed in American exceptionalism and that it is our destiny to expand beyond limits. Therefore I fully endorse Alaska becoming a US State.

Of course it is our duty to protect small businesses. The Conservative Party has always been in favor of lowering taxes, therefore I would propose to cut corporate taxes for small businesses for additional 5% in order to tackle their needs.

 

Quote

I would like to inquire if people in our nation are supportive of conscription at this time. Sadly we have lost many men in Japan and our professional army is not as strong as it should be. We learned that a war can come very quickly. I believe we not train and prepare our citizens to defend themselves. I would support to give young men a 12 months basic instruction.

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.

SOLDIER STATUS:

 

Japan launches an invasion of our occupied territory, but fail amazingly. They lose 20,000 men, while we lose only 3,000 and France lost 1,000.

 

However, we try to launch an invasion to push further into Japan, but they decided to dig trenches on crucial battlefields and managed to hold us off. They lost 3,000 men to our 5,500 and France's 2,000.

 

Active- 22,000 (16,500 in the Pacific Front and 10,000 protecting bases)

Active Reserve- 71,000 (Ready for Invasions)

Inactive Reserve- 40,000 (Are ready to be deployed.)

Navy: 50 ships.

French: 27,500 Men + Naval support

Japanese: ~87,000 men left on Japanese mainland.

 

WAR POPULARITY:

 

War popularity took another small hit, and is now around 82%.

 

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

 

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

Military Strength: Our professional army is ~22,000 men and 50 ships, with a reserve army of ~111,000 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 93,000 troops in the fight, and the French have 27,500 in the fight, against a force of 87,000 Japanese soldiers.

Economy: The economy gets a sharp boost, as this war does seemingly take longer than anticipated, and the transfer of the economy to a war economy, along with trade increases, grows our economy.

Trade: We trade 25% with non-European powers, 17% with Britain, 15% with Germany, 20% with France, and 23% with other non-radical European powers. Trade stays about the same.

Budget: Our budget is currently in a deficit, with 0% of our spending going to paying off our debt, aimed to be paid off by never. Our budget consists of the income of 35% taxes 41% tariff 11% overseas territories/canals and 13% nationalized industries, and the expenditure of 75% military 10% gov. upkeep 20% infrastructure and 0% debt repayment. We are spending 5% over our budget.

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

Immigration: Immigration takes a heavy hit.

Mood of the people: People are happy in the sense they are proud of their country's goals, but they are united behind the Government.

Party Power: Liberals take the Senate, while Conservatives make small gains in the House.

Popularity of the Incumbent: The president is very popular, ending midterms with a 72% approval rating and 26% disapproval rating.

 

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

Congress

 

Liberal 53/104 Senate 45% US Rep

Conservatives 51/104 Senate 48% US Rep

Socialists 0/104 Senate 7% US Rep

 

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

 

Only the war is a major focus at this time for the President after midterms. The President needs to make a more complex military plan to defeat the Japanese, as they seem to have begun to really dig themselves in.

@Kingthero

One think I about is to send a certain amount of troops behind enemy lines in order to cut the supply lines for the entrenched troops. When we wait long enough they will eventually come out and we can wipe them out. Did we already take Fukushima? If not let us also focus on occupying the city. 

Do we have any information on the war popularity in Japan. If Japan struggles to motivate their people any longer we should try to get them to the table of democracy again. If they are willing to surrender, we are willing to stop the blood-shed. If they are not stop their war efforts we could also think on reorganizing Hokkaido as an independent state after the war. We will do as much moral damage as possible.

(OOC: The RL Ezo Republic is what came to mind here.)

The president is also aware of the practicability of gas warfare when the enemies begin to entrench themselves, but the President hopes he does not need to authorize this awful order.

Since I believe China is holding Korea, our navy could launch an additional invasion on Japan's west coast and additionally coastal bombing in order to destroy their necessary war industry facilities.. They do not need essentially to protect the canal anymore, when Japan had surrendered there already.

SOLDIER STATUS:

 

Japan attempts another push, but fails again. They lose 3,000 men to our 500 American and 1,000 French.

 

We successively launch a naval invasion to get around their entrenched position. We landed in Niigata, took the city, and marched eastward, cutting off supplies to the trenches and fukushima. We took a heavy 3,000 American loss and 2,000 French loss, but we killed 9,000 Japanese forces.

 

We brilliantly took the city after their lack of supplies. We lost only 500 Americans to their 2,000 Japanese.

 

Japan still refuses to surrender.

 

The Hokkaido State is a brilliant endeavor, and we already begin to let them have autonomous control of the region.

 

While has has just recently been invented, it hasn't really been tested.

 

Our west coast invasion fails due to China blocking us from using Korean ports.

 

Following our successes, we push a virtually un-dug-in position south towards Tokyo, but fail to gain land. We lost only 1,000 Americans and 500 French to their 2,000 Japanese, however.

 

Active- 20,000 (10,000 in the Pacific Front and 10,000 protecting bases)

Active Reserve- 68,000 (Ready for Invasions)

Inactive Reserve- 40,000 (Are ready to be deployed.)

Navy: 50 ships.

French: 24,000 Men + Naval support

Japanese: ~71,000 men left on Japanese mainland.

 

WAR POPULARITY:

 

War popularity took another small hit, and is now around 79%.

It is sad that China is not cooperating anymore. Without our efforts they would not even control Korea. We have to assume that China just wanted to grab Korea in order to integrate it into their Empire. It is still our wish to see an independent Korea after the war.

From Niigata we could try to launch an invasion on the prefecture of while we could push from Fukushima into Ibaraki and Tochigi which would eventually bring us directly in front of Saitama the front gate of Tokyo. 

Our navy should also begin to extensively block all important ports of Japan like Osaka, Kobe, Nagoya, Yokohama and so on. In addition I order bombing the port cities heavily. Also make sure to block these ports so the elite is not able to flee justice and let their civilian population down when they have to acknowledge that we will win.

SOLDIER STATUS:

 

Japan attempts another push, but fails again! They lose 2,000 men to our 0 American and 1,000 French.

 

Pushing out of Niigata is stalled due to weather issues.

 

We begin to slowly push into Ibaraki and Tochigi, but only make it five to ten miles before stalling again. We lost 500 Americans and 500 French to the Japanese 2,000.

 

Japan still refuses to surrender, though there are super high levels of unrest.

 

A full scale invasion follows the bombings and smaller pushes, and succeeds! We have pushed sixty miles, and are near the city the Tokyo. We have reached their outer-Tokyo defenses, which consist of trenches and pillboxes. The Japanese lose 3,500 troops while the Americans lose 1,000 and the French lose 500.

 

It is predicted the war will end within the next three years.

 

Active- 19,500 (9,500 in the Pacific Front and 10,000 protecting bases)

When the weather clears up again I order again a push out of Niigata in order to support our troops in front of Tokyo.

We will also focus our naval bombings on Tokyo and we will attempt to use the recently occupied cities as air force bases in order to attack Tokyo and it's defending soldiers from the air.

Try also to isolate the city from any supply and begin to occupy their water and nutrition depots. When we control necessities like wheat and rice harvesting we cut their essentials. We also intend to use chemical weapons against food crops.

In a bold move I also order another 40.000 reserves being deployed to Japan in order to scare them at first and of course our direct goal would be Tokyo which we want to see falling.

Try to get the anti-war propaganda exactly to the people who are unhappy with the government. Make again clear that everyone who is giving up will be treated fairly and with certain amount of respect.

State of the Union for Election of 1932

____________________________________________

Name and office: President Arty J. Talbot

Age: 70

Party: Conservative

Resident state: NY

VP nominee: Vice President Hillsbury @Reagan04

Key Issue to Defend in Theoretical Debate: Winning the war

Platform (see State of the Union):

I always believed in that no person shall serve more than two consecutive terms as President of our wonderful nation. However, there are moments in live when you have take though decisions. I think it is my duty to serve the American people until this awful war which has been thrust upon us, will be won. Therefore I am announcing that I will officially be running for re-election as President of the United States of America.

National Strength: We will improve ourselves here in order to gain the top spot.

Military Strength: Our main goal will be to regain enough men in order to have strong army after the war as well.

Foreign Affairs: No retreat before we have won the war.

Military: See above.

Economy: We need to get the economy booming again. I would love to see respective measures for our economy and budget and potential bills for congress being developed by my advisory council and Vice President Hillsbury @Reagan04

Trade: I wanted to expand trade and therefore also our values in the third-world. I promise to take another attempt here for the sake of our people.

Budget: We will target this after the war has been won.

Social Harmony: We understand that people want to see an end of this war but we cannot understand leaving our nation down with anti-war rhetoric. People should not attack our government but the Japanese who started this aggressive behavior out of nothing. 

Immigration: Immigration is only important when we have more jobs available than our people.

Mood of the people: We are happy when we can make our constituents happy. We should never forget that we are serving them.

Party Power: I want to remind people to vote Conservative in order to give us a working majority after the Presidential election.

Popularity of the Incumbent: I am proud that people view me very favorable. I will attempt to serve them best in another term (which I did not plan to serve initially)

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. Try to wrap the war up as quickly and humanely as possible.

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.   

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: Anti-war sentiment should be addressed through the foreign affairs and military sections of the platform.

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: No comment, the criticisms of the President's post-war plans for Japan still stand. OOC: Approval rating of the President = Nice.   

 

Party Power: Campaign vigorously against both the Liberal and Conservative Parties in both the Presidential Race and Congressional Races.  

Key Issue to Defend in Theoretical Debate: Veterans issues addressing mentioned in the economy section of the platform.

VP nominee: Glen Maurer (PA).

OOC: No problem! I do not even know if that needs the approval of the Senate and if so I think we did not vote on it yet. Did we?

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

Military Strength: Our professional army is ~10,000 men and 50 ships, with a reserve army of ~107,000 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 a front starting five miles from inner Tokyo, and going diagonal at a 40 degree angle northwest. We have87,000 troops in the fight, and the French have 22,000 in the fight, against a force of 63,500 Japanese soldiers.

Economy: The economy stagnates at the level after the boost.

Trade: We trade 25% with non-European powers, 17% with Britain, 15% with Germany, 20% with France, and 23% with other non-radical European powers. Trade stays about the same.

Budget: Our budget is currently in a deficit, with 0% of our spending going to paying off our debt, aimed to be paid off by never. Our budget consists of the income of 35% taxes 41% tariff 11% overseas territories/canals and 13% nationalized industries, and the expenditure of 75% military 10% gov. upkeep 20% infrastructure and 0% debt repayment. We are spending 5% over our budget.

Social Harmony: The country is united strongly during our defensive war against the Japanese Empire, though there are beginning to be anti-war grumbles.

Immigration: Immigration takes another hit. We are no longer the 1# immigration power.

Mood of the people: People are happy in the sense they are proud of their country's goals, and they are united behind the Government.

Party Power: Liberals take the Senate, while Conservatives make small gains in the House.

Popularity of the Incumbent: The president is very popular, ending midterms with a 69% approval rating and 28% disapproval rating.
