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.

 

While we are disappointed no formal deal came out of this, we are excited that the Mexicans could reach deals with our companies that keeps our economy on the rise.

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

America still sounds the alarm to neighboring countries about possible Chinese invasion. We offer training to the Thais, Russians, and Persians (Iranians?) if they want it.

All three countries accept the training.

 

You have the ability to do another thing with the military before the next election.

The President reaches out to those countries to see if there is anything else the US can do to aid them if attacked. Nothing further.

Name and office: President Margaret Ellis

Age: 57

Party: Liberal

Resident state: Montana 

VP nominee: VP John Brown (L-PA)

Key Issue to Defend in Theoretical Debate: Economic Progress During Term 1

Platform (see State of the Union):

National Strength: Our administration has successfully led us to more economic growth and more opportunities for the American defense. We have successfully formed a defense pact with most of the nations in the Americas, which will define defense in our continent for years to come.

Military Strength: Push for a second time for the navy to fund small ship production that can compete with the Chinese. We cannot afford to be outnumbered 2 and 3 -1 in the Pacific! Even the Royal Navy was flushed out, supposedly the best navy in the world. We need to do better, and I will push a hard line with our top brass to make sure our defense is in the best hands it can be. We also herald the deal with Mexico.

Foreign Affairs: China is a very big concern, and we have stepped up our defensive efforts around the world to compensate for this. We are training troops in Russia, Persia, and Thailand. We have made a defensive pact in the Americas. If we are attacked, China has picked a fight with the biggest defensive alliance in the world. The US is pushing for a more secure world in the fact that we have been allying ourselves with our continents. A total land war with China is not entirely off the table, nor is the threat removed. We must push our military to fund the things that America needs done.

Military: It's no secret the military and the President have feuded over the navy and army vehicles. We still believe we are in the right, and will push for that in our next term. 

Economy: This is where we will strike a tone hard. Despite all of the economic progress that we have had over the years, we have still managed to increase our economy and keep it going. We pride ourselves on the deals we have made with Mexico and with Britain. Our economy has grown greatly in the past 10-20 years and our administration is glad to have contributed to this. We hammer Conservatives on the fact that they were not willing to sign a more compromise plan for our elderly. Liberals will make this a focal point of our campaigning, to pledge to put that system into place. Secretly, we fear we moved too far to the center and lost votes on both the left and right flanks. Conservatives were not willing to even come to the table for a compromise bill, and the President pledges, along with the Liberal party, to submit it to a vote again, and dare every single congressperson to vote against financing for our nation's oldest and most vulnerable. 

Trade: We have done a lot with trade in our first term, and we have expanded it well. We will not make it a focal point of our platform.

Budget: We have kept a balanced budget in the past 4 years and we are glad of this. Our administration will do our best to keep it balanced in the future. 

Social Harmony: We are glad the country is united and has elected me as President once before. I pledge to serve them humbly again and to stand up for America on the global stage.

Immigration: Immigration makes us a better country. It shows people care and trust our country with their lives.

Mood of the people: We cannot blame them for feeling wary of the wrath of China. However, our administration is doing all we can to partner with those that can hold the Chinese at bay. We assure them that a war would not reach American coasts, and thats if one starts in the first place. We cast doubt on that it will, and show the public our efforts to block a war from beginning.

Party Power: We admit it was a rough midterms. However, we believe the President is popular enough to sail to re-election and hopefully carry the party up, even to a 45-48% in the Senate. The President will campaign heavily on the East Coast to lead the party to victory there, in between times in DC. 

Popularity of the Incumbent: We're glad the President is popular, as the figurehead of our party.

@Kingthero Former Vice President Trebuano and the ailing Former President Hillsbury make a joint announcement that they will be campaigning for Congressional candidates this election, putting a lot of effort into winning Congress on the Conservative themes that have helped the nation succeed for decades. Newly elected Senator Cruz (C-FL) will join them as he is considered a rising star of the very conservative wing of the party and the former Vice President is not as hardline.

1944 Election

Welcome to the election of 1944! This election, we see the popular socialist candidate take a step back, becoming the VP, to the disappointment of many voters. We see the current President running for re-election, and we see one of the weakest Conservative candidates in decades. This election comes with one of the lowest turnouts in many years, as nobody is excited about anything.

 

Primaries

There were so significant primaries.

 

General Election Round 1

 

Ellis/Brown (Lib) 429 EV 53% PV [All States but the ones below.]

Woodburrow/Curtis (Con) 108 EV 33% PV [MI, OR, WA, AZ, OK, TN, ID, UT, CO, SD, CU, MN]

Thomas/Wallace (Soc) 28 EV 14% PV [NV, MT, WY, ND, NE, KS]

 

Note: This shouldn't be championed as a political landslide for the Liberals; turnout was so bad that likely the numbers don't represent the population.

 

 

Region Breakdown (Pop Vote)

 

New England (ME, NH, VT, MA, RI, CT) : Lean Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: Shipping, Trade, War

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Congress

Liberal 55/104 Senate 49% US Rep

Conservatives 46/104 Senate 41% US Rep

Socialists 3/104 Senate 10% US Rep

RP Note: Congress is now pretty much owned by a Liberal dominance, however the party itself is shattered between factions.

State of the Union after the Election of 1944

 

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

Military Strength: Our professional army is 30,000 men and 60 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 to Modern Day Persia.

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

Economy: The economy begins a small decline, hopefully brief.

Trade: Trade has grown significantly with our private industries utilizing international business strategies.

Budget: Our budget is currently balanced, with no debt. Our budget consists of the income of 38% taxes 45% tariff 9% overseas territories/canals and 8% nationalized industries, and the expenditure of 50% military 10% gov. upkeep 25% infrastructure and 15% surplus growth.

Social Harmony: The country is united, but losing the ultimate national unity of the past two decades.

Immigration: Immigration levels begin to surge.

Mood of the people: People are becoming wary of the global affairs.

Party Power: Liberals barely fail to have full majorities of both Houses of Congress.

Popularity of the Incumbent: The president is average, ending midterms with a 55% approval rating and 38% disapproval rating from the past poll.

 

Events and Decisions for January 1945 - January 1949 for Pres. Ellis @Hestia11

1) An Update on Russia

Russia has been mysterious to the entire world due to its strength. It remains the 1# world power, has the world's greatest population aside from China, and has technology that is scarier than what anybody has imagined. To many they are aliens. They are ruled by a monarch still, like much of Europe, but unlike other monarchies the Russian Monarch has absolute control, but due to the country's success is also the most loved person on the planet. In this timeline, they have managed to push deeper east and north into Siberia, as they had no hurdles in the industrial age and used wood as fuel to incentive land growth before switching to coal. As this empire may soon go to war with China, we may see the greatest death toll known to man.

2) Housing Crisis

Due to high levels of economic growth and immigration, the housing market grew exponentially. However, a small hiccup in economic growth has caused a minor housing panic. This panic has led to housing prices falling so far by 5% nationwide, and some fear this will lead to a complete crash.

3) Pacific Defense

Shall we increase our active military in order to provide more troops to the region?

4) Explosive Technology

Word has reached you our scientists have discovered a new way of making bombs more efficient; however, before anyone could test it, it blew up a multi-million dollar research facility. The bomb was not that big, however it destroyed the entire building due to poor construction.

5) Automobiles in the Military

Some models of this vehicle called a humvee have reached military command. However, it has failed various stress tests. Should we abandon this plan, or increase military funding?

6) Scandinavian Chaos

While the world has been focused on China, Sweden recently and somewhat secretly annexed Norway and all of its territories through diplomatic means, including Greenland. Now, Sweden is the sole power in Scandinavia bordering Russia and Germany.

7) Hurricane Gandalf

A terrible hurricane has just wretched the eastern coast of Texas, southern Louisiana, and southern Mississippi. However, it is not over yet. It remains a category five and is traveling up the mississippi rivers, creating massive flooding that has never been seen before. Some predict that this could lead to 1/3 of Louisiana being completely underwater. People have been evacuated, but its time for a Federal response

😎 Libertarians secure a Leader

Liberal Senate Majority Leader Kenneth Lawson, replacing the previous leader, has just been announced by a group of about 30% of the Liberal Party's legislature, as the new leader of the Libertarian Caucus of the Liberal Party. They propose to the President about finally denationalizing the shipping industry, as profits have recently fallen by 35% as private industries, which have already been regulated, have been taking over.

9) Conservative Chaos

After taking such heavy losses in the last election, Conservatives are scrambling to find a leader. While some support the last nominee for being simple, others rally behind the former VP. It looks as though both the Liberal and Conservative parties could be seeing a severe split as a risk of both parties.

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.

Russia has been mysterious to the entire world due to its strength. It remains the 1# world power, has the world's greatest population aside from China, and has technology that is scarier than what anybody has imagined. To many they are aliens. They are ruled by a monarch still, like much of Europe, but unlike other monarchies the Russian Monarch has absolute control, but due to the country's success is also the most loved person on the planet. In this timeline, they have managed to push deeper east and north into Siberia, as they had no hurdles in the industrial age and used wood as fuel to incentive land growth before switching to coal.

We obviously downplay the power of Russia, as we are #2. We are wary of formally backing them in instance of a war with China, as any land taken by us would immediately be in danger of an attack by Russia. We don't have a lot to say here, as we feel it is a situation that is still unfolding. We'll make the calculations in the military parts below.

The government assures homeowners that there will be no crash and the housing price drop was only the markets adjusting. After the period of rampant success we've been having, it's natural for the market to correct itself. We assure our voters and the American people we believe there isn't a threat on the horizon when it comes to housing.

We'd reach out to these scientists to try and provide them an open space to test this, perhaps in the desert somewhere in the West. If they can successfully test a new kind of bomb, we will pay for the expense of making it out of the military budget.

We'd like to double down on this issue. We push the military to try this in various different environments, not just the limited ones they likely tested it in. Liberals need a win here, and if the humvee can be improved, we would spend more military funds on this.

Well, this doesn't necessarily catch our attention that much, as it was a diplomatic annexation, and there was no war involved. We of course, release a blanket statement saying we support the rights of those to have rights to their own homelands.

OOC: Gandalf? lol

THe President would like to survey the damage as soon as the hurricane is over. She proposes sending down some reserves to help rescue people in the different parts. She advocates for studies on how to keep the rivers back during floods. There is little we can do to stop weather, besides sending our support and the medical aid we can to these affected regions. The President expresses her hope that everyone will stay safe.

President Ellis proposes an alternative plan. A test of denationalizing the industry, to last for four years (Just before the end of her term). At that time, she will judge whether or not there was sufficient growth in the private industry there hasn't been in the governing. She hopes this will rally national unity, and promises to have an open and fair mind. If there is sufficient private growth, she will instruct Senate Liberal leaders to submit a bill to denationalize the industry entirely.

We will avert crisis in our own party with a compromise with our Libertarian leaders. Conservatives will have to figure out their own way to deal with their crisis. Obviously, their crisis only helps our party.

The Soc Lab Party will oppose any attempt to denationalize the shipping industry.

The Soc Lab Party proposes the Flood Control Act of 1944 which will authorize civil engineering projects such as dams, levees, dikes, and other flood control measures through federal agencies nationwide and also proposes the establishment of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) the agency's primary purpose will be to coordinate the response to a disaster that has occurred in the United States and that overwhelms the resources of local and state authorities in response to the hurricane in the South.

The establishment of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in order to centralize our current executive disaster relief efforts. This agency will be able to utilize funds allocated by both Congress, and when fit, the President to distribute aid where it is needed.

It looks as though both the Liberal and Conservative parties could be seeing a severe split as a risk of both parties.

We offer an Olive Branch to the Libertarians by offering to partner with that 30% of Congress that is Liberal but ready to end this great dark mark of tyranny on the nation. With the Conservative delegation behind it, the denationalization bill should pass and this should be the key to jumpstarting our economy.

Vice President Trebuano steps up to calm the Party and centralize it, she, buttressed by her mentor Former President Hillsbury standing behind her to her left, and Senator Dan Cruz (C-FL), her protege, behind her to her right at the Press Conference, she announces that she has formed an exploratory committee for Trebuano '48 and that Senator Woodburrow is invited to join this coalition under the former Vice President in order to find order in our great party for 1946 midterms. We must unite around the goals of keeping our economy and budget fiscally conservative as well as defending our interests abroad and values at home.

Our position on this is as above, we will choose to partner with the LCLP

The Conservatives block any move to have these Federally mandated, but we can use the Conservative piece of hydroelectricity legislation passed back in the late 30s to issue grants to states to build these on their own.

This is fine, as long as the administration of funds is enacted by the states.

The Soc Lab Party will vote for the Flood Control Act of 1945(?) and the establishment of FEMA and appeals to the progressive and moderate wings of the Liberal Party to vote for it as well.
