State of the Union for Election of 1940

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, American Polynesia, and Japan.

Foreign Affairs: China is going crazy.

Military: Our military is semi-active. Some of our military is in Pacific Bases, while others are static. Reserves have been re-integrated.

Economy: The economy still grows exponentially.

Trade: We trade 24% with non-European powers, 17% with Britain, 15% with Germany, 21% with France, and 23% with other non-radical European powers. Trade has stagnated.

Budget: Our budget is currently balanced, 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 36% taxes 43% tariff 8% overseas territories/canals and 11% nationalized industries, and the expenditure of 60% military 10% gov. upkeep 30% infrastructure and 0% debt repayment.

Social Harmony: The country is still very united.

Immigration: Immigration continues to surge immensely.

Mood of the people: People are ecstatic; a growing economy, paired with a surge of unity or immigration, has led to fast-paced growth.

Name and office: Sen. Margaret Ellis (white woman)

Age: 53

Party: Liberal

Resident state: Montana 

VP nominee: Gov. John Brown (white man L-PA)

Key Issue to Defend in Theoretical Debate: Defending Infrastructure

Platform (see State of the Union):

National Strength: Our place here is good. We have enough power to deter those that would want to harm our continent, but not enough as to be responsible for the defense of the globe. We want to maintain our place here, maybe eventually grow into 1st place, but not immediately. Only a drastic event would change that, likely.

Military Strength: We want to sanction the creation of an additional fleet, whether out of existing ships or ships that must be created to deal with the rapid rise of China. We need to be able to completely seal off Asia from Japan and our friendly islands in the Pacific. We need to revamp our military to be ready for perhaps an even bigger problem than the one we faced yesterday. While nothing is for sure, we can't be caught off guard by the Chinese and perhaps others who share their beliefs. 

Foreign Affairs: China is a very deep concern of ours. We emphasize our foreign policy chops and our desire for democracy by stating if we end up helping in the war effort, an independent India and a vote in Tibet for independence will be guaranteed. The wrath of China is being wreaked across the continent of Asia. It is possible they will attempt to invade the Middle East, or even Russia! We should consider purchasing navy vessels of other nations as well, cheaper than we could make our own perhaps. We also would like to add a second plank, an American Alliance. A speech would give the main details, offering protection for every country in the Americas, by way of the United States. It is time to show our power here in our continent and in South America as well. No country will be allowed to get a foothold on our part of the world at our own expense. Those that have colonies here will be allowed to keep them. Those that come for colonies come with a warning: America protects Democracy. We will invite the various nations of the Americas to a semi-military alliance based here in DC.

Military: We propose that the navy begin to patrol off of Japan's shores and off of the Philippines. We need to be prepared for any kind of venture the Chinese are willing to go to in Asia. We can choke them with our navy, as it is one of our strongest assets. Begin buying and making new ships for the navy.

Economy: We are glad that the economy is growing. Liberals trumpet that they were the ones who proposed the infrastructure idea to Congress, but still thank Conservatives and Socialists for supporting us in our quest to give Americans jobs. We would hope to branch this program out more and delve into the nitty-gritty details of it in our term. We want a complex interstate-highway system. A massive railroad layout. Dams to control the rivers. We argue that we would be best able to keep track of these companies from harming their workers than the Conservatives would be able to, and say that we would be able to keep track of misues of power by the companies that Conservatives might let go. A Liberal Administration would see trade on the international stage grow again, as we press for deals with Mexico (in response for what we did for them in their Civil War), and with other countries in the Americas that would like to trade with us. Liberals demand regulations in the workplace, for the treatment of workers and work hours to be set and a wage that supports the work they do. 

Trade: Increase trade with the Americas during our term.

Budget: We float the idea of perhaps creating another canal somewhere, to be determined at a later date. Perhaps somewhere in Asia or in Nicaragua? 

Social Harmony: We are glad that our country is uniting.

Immigration: Immigrants are a essential building block of American life. We all were one at some point, unless if you are a Native American. We are glad the country is united and supporting these people.

Mood of the people: We are happy to have helped lead in this mood.

Party Power: Use our power at the top of the ballot to fuel down-ballot victories, perhaps taking a clear majority in the Senate. Spare a few barbs for the Socialists, as we need to tamp down their support. 

Popularity of the Incumbent: The President has done much for this country and we thank him for his work. But ten years in power is quite a long time, paired with the terms already served by the previous President is too much. He's been in Washington forever, and with me serving as Governor for years, I know what the working people need out there.

Continue to support the League of Nations' development. Place harsh sanctions on China for invading India and Korea.

Military: Have the military and navy perform training exercises to be prepared for any other possible attacks or potential humanitarian intervention.

Economy: Close all corporate tax loopholes. Raise the estate tax, if there isn't one create one. Raise taxes on the top earners, the income tax rate for those earning $100,000 will be above 50%.

Gov. Dan Cruz (C-FL) (Hispanic Man)

Easily the most important thing to do here is run on the Conservative economy, it has to be about the good times that we have generated

National Strength: Conservative administrations have continued to see us climb in this ranking. It won't be long before the roaring Conservative economy carries us past Germany and eventually Russia. We must continue forging ever onward in cementing us as the greatest nation on the planet. We hold a very patriotic view of the nation. Coming from the daughter of an Italian immigrant escaping Socialism, this is incredibly important to me.

Military Strength: I will continue the Hillsbury policies of martial readiness in the face of a growingly aggressive China. We cannot flinch at protecting our Japanese allies and we cannot allow ourselves to grow weak in our military defense of freedom.

Foreign Affairs: We need to be active and aggressive in foreign affairs. China stands to spread its iron fist of Fascism across Asia and that shall not stand. As such, I propose that we work with the Russians and the Europeans (British and French) to explore options regarding assisting the fighting of China. We again insist that we will not respond unless Japan is attacked, however it has become incredibly evident that the Chinese are gaming for all of Asia. As such, we need to be entirely ready for the possibility of armed conflict in the 1940s. When the rights of man are threatened somewhere in the world, it will be the United States to stand to their defense.

Military: As we have stated, we will be increasingly mobilizing with offensive and defensive training measures in preparation for the likely Chinese invasion of Japan. Again, we need to discuss possible routes of attack with the Russians in order to beat China back.

Economy: The Conservatives are thrilled that their infrastructure proposal which we promised in 1936 was passed into law keeping the sector in private hands. We will beyond that run on our record. We have huge growth and we have Presidents Talbot and Hillsbury to thank for it. We'd be insane to abandon the core of conservative policy on that issue and we will continue to promise deregulation and spending cuts us we work towards paying off the debt and working on the infrastructure deal.

Trade: We will once again open up dialogues with our North American partners for a continental deal. Free Trade has been the lifeblood of Conservative economic policy and foreign affairs, we seek to expand that growth.

Budget: As stated above, we look forward to paying off the debt to prove the Federal Government can finally be responsible for itself.

Social Harmony: Something that has been ignored for too long is Moralism, like many Americans, I am devout in my view that America, in these good times, should do more to honor our Christian roots. I propose several measures to better acknowledge our heritage as a Christian Nation in the procedures of the nation and defend Family Values. We must stand against the enemies of God in this world and be noted as a society for the morally upright and triumphant of the world.

Immigration: We will continue our policies on this as my father fled from Italian Socialism, everyone should flee to American Capitalism.

Mood: Again, run hard on the Conservative Mandate which stretches far and has a history of holding a strong White House bettering the American people.

Party Power: We need a Conservative Congress! We encourage our congressional candidates to focus on three things: National Security/Patriotism, the Economy, Moralism. Those three issues are the three that are the proven success format for the Conservatives and we must continue to drill them in as our signature platform pieces. Run on our prosperity, security, and values.

Popularity: Run hand in hand with President Hillsbury, a popular President, and emphasize my similar path. Rising from the Italian poor communities in Detroit to become a Senator from Michigan and eventually the first female Vice President in history. I now hope to become the first President who was the child of an immigrant and of course female President. Just like the Hillsbury administration, we stand above all for opportunity, that is why I got into politics and it is why I wish to serve and will serve as your President.

1940 Election

Welcome to the election of 1940! This election, we see a socialist primary, pitting the moderates and the extremists against eachother. We will see who will prevail. If the moderate socialist wins, this could be the first election in years that the socialists take States. The Conservative VP is running for election, and the Liberal candidate is very refreshing.

 

Primaries

There was the socialist-labor primary between Moderate Wallace and Radical Grant. Grant's strongholds are in the South and Southwest, while Wallace owns the West and Northeast. Cities lean Wallace.

 

Wallace: 75.5%

 

Grant: 24.5%

 

Grant won many southern States, as that was his focus, and even won the Pennsylvania Socialist primary, but Wallace carried most of the States.

 

General Election Round 1

 

Ellis/Brown (Lib) 232 EV 34% PV [ME, NH, VT, CT, PA, OH, MI, OR, WA, AZ, AR, MO, MS, SC, VA, TN, MT, ND, HI, PR, AK, IA, NJ, DE]

Trebauno/Cruz (Con) 193 EV 39% PV [MA, IL, IN, CA, NM, TX, LA, KY, WV, MA, AL, NV, UT, WY, CU, FL]

Wallace/Krueger (Soc) 140 EV 27% PV [RI, NY, WI, OK, GA, NC, CO, SD, NE, KS, MN]

 

Note: Round 1 was the most interesting election in many, many years. Wallace challenged the political norm, winning the Socialist party's primary and bringing up issues that attracted Westerners and Independents altogether. It also helped that there is still some stigma about women in politics, and since Wallace was the only man, he got more votes. This surge won't be represented at a local level that much, since it is more the candidate than the party that led to this.

 

General Election Round 2

 

Ellis/Brown (Lib) 329 EV 51% PV [ME, NH, VT, RI, CT, NY, PA, OH, WI, MI, OR, WA, AZ, OK, AR, MO, MS, GA, SC, VA, TN, MT, ND, HI, PR, AK, MN, IA, NJ, DE]

Trebauno/Cruz (Con) 236 EV 49% PV [MA, IL, IN, CA, NM, TX, LA, KY, WV, MA, AL, NC, NV, ID, UT, CO, SD, NE, KS, WY, CU, FL]

 

RP Note: Relatively speaking, Conservatives did better this election; however, Liberals took advantage of the Socialist States and flipped many of them in their favor. The Conservatives losing New York cost them the election, as they would have won with it.

 

Region Breakdown (Pop Vote)

 

New England (ME, NH, VT, MA, RI, CT) : Tossup | Region Hot 3 Issues: Shipping, Trade, Economy

Industrial Centers (NY, PA, OH, IL) : Lean Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: War, Trade, Economy

Industrial Midwest (WI, MI, IN) : Lean Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: War, Trade, Economy

West Coast (CA, OR, WA) : Lean Conservative | Region Hot 3 Issues: Immigration, War, Morality

Southwest (AZ, NM, OK, TX) : Lean Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: War, Immigration, Morality

Southern Outskirts (LA, AR, MO, KY, WV, MD) : Tossup | Region Hot 3 Issues: War, Morality, Economy

Deep South (MS, AL, GA) : Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: Economy, Labor, War

Upper South (SC, NC, VA, TN) : Lean Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: Economy, War, Trade

West (NV, ID, MT, WY, UT, CO, ND, SD, NE, KS) : Lean Socialist | Region Hot 3 Issues: Immigration, Environment, Farming

Non-Continentals (HI, CU, PR, AK) : Lean Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: War, Trade, Government Efficiency

Swing States (MN, IA, NJ, DE, FL) : Tossup | Region Hot 3 Issues: Economy, War, Morality

 

Congress

Liberal 50/104 Senate 45% US Rep

Conservatives 51/104 Senate 44% US Rep

Socialists 3/104 Senate 11% US Rep

RP Note: Congress is a mixed bag; Conservatives hold a plurality in the Senate, and Liberals hold a plurality in the House. Socialists are officially able to swing both houses.

National Strength: We rank 2nd in the list of the top 10 countries: Russia, United States, Germany, France, Great Britain, China, Mexico, Austria, Sweden, Spain.

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, American Polynesia, and Japan.

Foreign Affairs: China is going crazy. Their borders extend from China/Korea all the way towards Modern Day Pakistan.

Military: Our military is semi-active. Some of our military is in Pacific Bases, while others are static. Reserves have been re-integrated.

Economy: The economy still grows.

Trade: We trade 24% with non-European powers, 17% with Britain, 15% with Germany, 21% with France, and 23% with other non-radical European powers. Trade has grown slightly.

Budget: Our budget is currently balanced, with 5% of our spending going to paying off our debt, aimed to be paid off by 1946. Our budget consists of the income of 37% taxes 42% tariff 8% overseas territories/canals and 11% nationalized industries, and the expenditure of 55% military 10% gov. upkeep 30% infrastructure and 5% debt repayment.

Social Harmony: The country is still very united.

Immigration: Immigration levels begin to even out.

Mood of the people: People are ecstatic.

Party Power: Congress is ultimately split.

 

Events and Decisions for January 1941 - January 1945 for Pres. Ellis @Hestia11

1) China Continues its Push

Reports from the UK have concluded that China, while taking more casualties than the British, just keeps throwing more and more men at them. The terrain of the Pakistan area is the only thing that is keeping the British alive.

2) Environmental Upbringing

The Environment became a much more important issue after Wallace took over 25% of the American vote. The next viable approach, if you choose to change anything, for addressing the environment would be regulating smog, which still impacts big cities to this day (Prior Event: New York Smog).

3) Chinese Navy Buildup

Realizing that they may be overextended on the coastline, China has begun to build ships en masse. While these ships aren't comparable to our ships, they will eventually have a numbers advantage so great it won't matter (Reminds me of the Greek and Persian wars, with the Greeks sending ships to their deaths to sink Persian ships).

4) Military Procedure

One of your major campaign points that likely led to your election was the growth of our military. What steps do you wish to take?

5) Technology Question

Compared to our real timeline, our planes are up-to-date, but ground technology is limited to WW1 minus Tanks. Naval technology is limited to the irl 1920s. Obviously we can't meta in technology, but which war sector do you want the war industries and inventors to most focus on?

6) Colored Film

Domestic technology has been soaring in our nation, even with some inventions beating irl invention dates. Colored television and movie technology is already becoming mainstream. Some people in Congress ask if its time to do a Government-funded TV station/movie company like our radio station.

7) Quality of Living

A huge idea talked about within America is how we treat our elderly. Families have been treating their own for centuries, and while a majority of Americans still support this idea, some are wondering how they can both take care of their elderly and work at the same time, since some people have lived up to their 80's!

😎 Mexico Sends Ships Back

After decades of laying low on the issue, Mexico has finally sent our ships back, plus a few extra. They apologize for taking so long, but they were reforming the Government, blablabla. Our ship count is now 60.

9) Libertarian Thought

This is more a status than an event, but I think its important to note. Years ago, the Liberal Party had a libertarian wing that secured some votes, although never got anywhere due to their anti-war status. This wing has seemingly died, though the voters whom voted for such policies are still there. A whole ideology, just abandoned. Is there anything the President would like to address to this wing of their party?

10) Free

Anything not included here you wish to implement?

 

Congressional Majority Opposition @Reagan04

1) Block Measures

As a majority opposition, you have the ability to block specific actions by the President. While I simulate votes and sometimes things change, this block will be much more meaningful than the usual blocking. You gain one of these a year, with a cap of 4. Note that you have these if you are really against something

2) Proposal

As a majority opposition, you can likely propose and pass bills, though likely to be veto'ed. You gain the ability to propose one bill a year, with a cap of 4. Note this if you feel creative one day, or are really hostile against a specific policy.

President Ellis condemns the Chinese attacks on British colonies. We want to meet with the British officials here in Washington to discuss how we could support them. We propose coordinating a trade agreement that would lower tariffs between our countries so war materials could flow easily from the US to the British. We offer discounted prices as long as they continue to buy American.

Pres. Ellis understands these concerns and would like to address them. We would like a law to be passed that would restrict the amounts of smog concentration in cities to a reasonable limit (I don't know that much about this, so whatever a reasonable amount would be is what she'd press for). We'd bank on support from Socialists and moderate Conservatives to get this bill passed.

This is concerning. If they begin to ram our ships, we could be in trouble. Perhaps in terms of military technology we could research a lightweight, smaller kind of ship that would be less costly for our manufacturers? I would endorse this sort of thing.

Liberals are just as strong on our military as Conservatives, and we will not hesitate to pick up where they left off. We want to focus on buying lightweight ships and researching possible ways to build them, to be stronger than the Chinese, but able to manufacture at a high rate. We would love to start pumping out ships just as fast as they are. We don't need to be able to defeat the Chinese navy in its entirety, just in the area surrounding Japan. Together, perhaps the British and American navies would be able to propel influence should the Chinese attack us.

Beyond what I said before, I believe that we need to research more ground warfare, particularly in the realm of vehicles. We want faster ways to travel long distances. (In addition to the lightweight ships needed to counter Chinese adventurism)

We tread carefully on this issue, as we don't want future generations to get this mixed up. The President backs a channel where the government would broadcast hearings, speeches, and when Congress is in session. We don't want a government-funded news station or movie company, as we believe that would tread closer to propaganda than actual TV.

Pres. Ellis would like to spend adequate amounts of time on this issue, as we believe that this is a pressing issue for most Americans. She delivers a speech in nearby Annapolis where she endorses the idea of creating a government-funded program that is used to assist the elderly in paying for what they need. She clarifies in further statements this would be limited to food, housing, and medical care. This would not be an overabundance of money, and those that have enough money would not be able to apply for this program. The government would be able to accept and reject those that they deemed rich enough to get by without this program. She calls it the Assisted Living Society Fund (ALSF).

We are overjoyed the Mexicans have sent our ships back, and had began to needle them on the point in our platform. Perhaps we could form bilateral agreements with Mexico or Canada on trade, as it has been a plank in our platform for years for these exploratory talks.

Pres. Ellis survived mostly on the support of the moderate-liberal side of the party. However, she still believes that the support of the full Liberal party is necessary. She will not go out of her way to placate what these people wish, and trust that her platform includes what they'd like in it, as they were already Liberal members. She reminds those who ask that when they did run for Liberal nomination, they got crushed 75-25%. She thanks those voters for their support of her in the past campaign, and trusts they support her causes regardless if she specifically reaches out to them, as she sees she is not reaching out to particular branches of her party at all.

Anything not included here you wish to implement?

President Ellis would like to conduct exploratory talks with nations of the Americas on a defensive alliance. Only those that are curious would have to attend. She says that it is not a defensive alliance in the fact that they would have to go to war if the US was attacked, but the US would come to their defense if they were. It is time for us to take up a point of power in our own hemisphere. We use encroaching China as an excuse for this necessity.

The Socialist Labor Party will support the proposed smog reduction legislation but suggests that Air Pollution, in general, should be tackled (OOC: just use the Clean Air Act as a guide).

The Socialist Labor Party will support the supporting of British in their defensive war against China.

The Socialist Labor Party proposes the establishment of a government-owned broadcasting corporation which will be paid for via a television license fee whose governing body is independent of the government but still be held accountable to the government and the license fee payers.

The Socialist Labor Party will obviously support the ALSF although it wishes it would cover the wider public and hopes that the amount of money given to seniors is tied to inflation.

We thank the Socialists for their support, but state they would like it to be bipartisan and would like to moderate it versus having it for the general public.

OOC: I notice the term BIpartisan being used to garner across the board support for issues in an alternate multi-party system. If a multi-party had truly become dominant, I'm pretty sure the RW term bipartisan would have been replaced in the common parlance by a word indicating support from more than two parties, by definition.

Trade deals are made, however while this helps our economy it ends up not really helping the Brits much.

 

The British have officially been pushed out of the Pakistani area, and were either taken prisoner, killed, or in exile in Persia or Afghanistan.

 

China's next move is unknown at this time.

While you make this a goal of your administration, the military has decided to kindly ignore this request.

Canada refuses to engage in any new trade talks, since they are focused in helping the British. The Mexicans, however, propose a unique deal where we will lower tariffs, invite business leaders from both countries to a big meeting, and make an ultimate deal where Mexico will focus on raw resources to send to the U.S., while the U.S. will focus on manufacturing.

Canada refuses to join this alliance, but Mexico, Central America, and South America agree to a mutual defensive pact.

 

The amount of bad rolls here is just sad; elder security should have passed, and at least some of the technology should have gone through.

Finally, some plans are set to investigate automobiles on the battlefield, but no results have come of yet.

They have finally been completed for the most part.

Sadly, the Government could not come to any formal deal regarding the trade further than lowering tariffs, but the companies worked out great arrangements that should lead to prosperity.

The ADA is formed.

 

In other news,

 

China doesn't invade a new country, and is seemingly focused on bringing order to its conquered territories and further producing its navy.
