Name and office: House Representative Adam Natesh

Age:43

Party:Libertarian

Resident state: New York

VP nominee: House Representative Francisco Perez

Key Issue to Defend in Theoretical Debate: Libertarian Opposition of the "tie ourselves to europe" bill.

Platform (see State of the Union):

National Strength: There is no reason other than former presidential ignorance we cannot move to #1.

Military Strength: The easiest way to put this, which both sides have not really done, is G.R.O.W T.H.I.S. M.I.L.I.T.A.R.Y.

Military: Same as above.

Foreign Affairs: The American Alliances and our "great" nation itself have done absolutely nothing to stop the Russia and Chinese manifest growth. They have slowed them down in Turkey, but it's inevitable unless we grow our military and do something for real the line will collapse and Russia will take it.

Economy: Good, it's growing, a surplus is not bad.

Trade: Same as above.

Budget: Keep spending relatively same, possibly spend a bit more on budget with our growing trade and economy.

Social Harmony: We must be united, not divided, in such horrid, fearful times of probable full-out war. 

Immigration: We really shouldn't kill immigration, but we should keep out possible Russian/Chinese spies, or threats to America.

Mood of the people: We should be glad we held the Ottomans alive this far! The people are right! We should be joyous and united in times of fear, especially when we are standing O.K. for the moment.

Party Power: With Turner support, we try to grab his former Liberal supporters, and the normal center-rights who believe in liberty and libertarian beliefs.

Popularity of the President: We commemorate Cruz, one of the few presidents of our nation who has actually accomplished something, but still say "We are better than the VP" 

Foot Note: I did this up at about like 11 PM-12 AM, I was tired as hell, and I'm proud of myself for doing this much, I may increase it to about a paragraph for 1-2 things, but not tonight (the time of this post)

The bill is aimed to prevent attacks from China or Russia. The fact that Libertarians would bring up such obscure things would obviously be rejected in a vote on the Senate floor, which if they had actually read the provision, was included. It wasn't automatic war, but requires a vote in the Senate.

Well then this bill is not at all required as we can do that without a law requiring it.

Resident state: Ohio

VP nominee: Rep. William J. Horner of Georgia

Key Issue to Defend in Theoretical Debate: Doctrine of peace

Platform (see State of the Union):

National Strength: Some made-up ranking of "strength" isn't as important as making sure that we take proper care of our citizens.

Military Strength: Once we secure a peace deal between Russia and Turkey I have plan to shrink the size of our army by half and our navy by a third before the end of my term .

Foreign Affairs: Sit down and talk to Russia and China to broker a peace deal. No mother raises her boy to be a soldier, and no mother should have to go through losing her child to imperial greed. Pursue a doctrine of arbitration in pursuit of a lasting and prospering peace amongst nations. Encourage our allies to begin decolonization. 

Military: See military strength

Economy: Nationalize all public utilities, such as water, mail, rail, telegrams ect, as well as the steel, banking, and shipping industry. Increase and introduce social welfare benefits for the elderly, the disabled, and those unable to work. Empower worker protections and trade unions. I support a full employment economy meaning we must be vigilant against misguided attempts to raise interests rates. Enact programs to provide public housing to the poor

Trade: While I support expanded trade, we must be mindful that we don't forget to properly protect our workers from the machinations of big business.

Budget: Focus on how the government can help people, a deficit and debt is fine.

Social Harmony: Relax the people's anxieties of war by securing a peace deal.

Immigration: Relax Immigration restrictions.

Mood of the people: No coment.

Party Power: The SLP is the only party that has consistently fought for the american people instead of serving the interests of banking and industry, and I will spare no effort to help fellow members get elected.

1960 Election

Welcome to the election of 1960! This election, we see the failure of the two major parties to field a candidate, as the Liberals have announced they are endorsing the Socialist and the Conservatives are endorsing the Libertarian.

 

Primaries

There was one primary, which was between two Socialist candidates. One was a formalized politician, while the other represented the American Federation of Teachers.

 

Haley: 31.5%

Humphrey: 68.5%

 

Humphrey is the Socialist nominee, with Hass as his VP.

 

Note: Follows similar election stats as the generals, but I just simplify the result as its a Primary.

 

General Election Round 1

 

Humphrey/Hass (Soc + Lib) 339 EV 61% PV [All but those below.]

Natesh/Perez (Libt + Con) 226 EV 39% PV [ME, NH, VT, MA, CT, NY, CA, OR, LA, AR, KY, WV, SC, NC, VA, UT, SD, KS, MN, FL]

 

Note: Liberal and Conservative biases, for the most part, supported their endorsed candidates. Regional bases didn't change due to lack of major party campaigning. Socialist candidate was seen more favorable due to the more extensive campaign run, as well as the great fatigue for the Conservatives.

Liberals recognize the lack of support for any one candidate and didn't field a major one at all. They will plan on running in the next cycle, however. They warn that they control Congress for now - and that they will push their weight around.

(Sorry, I didn't have time to make a candidate)

Sen. Jacqueline Thorne (L-TX) makes a prepared statement that she will take over as Senate Leader for the Liberal Party. They hope Sen. Thorne, a 42 year old white woman, will invigorate the party for the coming midterm elections. They focus on the lack of experience that the Socialists have leading the nation - and the fact they have little support in Congress to get anything done. They batter Conservatives with a charge that they were reactionary on anything related to foreign affairs, and didn't try to change anything.

Dr. Ben Larson (C-MD) is widely seen as the new rising star in the Conservative party after the generation of Trebuano, Cruz, and Reynolds fizzled out. He hopes to bring new energy to the Senate to which he was elected in 1958.

Sidenote: Constitution already guarantees equality, something done in the mid 1800s greater than in our timeline. If I am wrong, its happened sometime during the Liberal dominance in the early 1900s.

 

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

Military Strength: Our professional army is 80,000 men and 75 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: Russia and China have a super alliance, same with League of Nations and American Alliances. For reference, Russian borders are pre-our timeline-WW1 Russian borders plus Eastern Turkey, Iraq, Kuwait, and Western Iran, and Chinese expand all the way to border Russia through owning East Iran.

Military: Our military is completely occupied. Some of our military is in Pacific Bases, while others are volunteering in Europe.

Economy: The economy has grown slightly in response to expanded trade and war, but not amazingly.

Trade: Trade grows even more, especially military trade, boosting our economy.

Budget: Our budget is currently balanced, with no debt. Our budget consists of the income of 40% taxes 50% tariff , and 10% overseas territories/canals, and the expenditure of 65% military 15% gov. upkeep 20% infrastructure and 0% deficit growth. (SD: 10)

Social Harmony: The country is united against a possible threat.

Immigration: Immigration levels begin to grow, especially from refugees of the middle east.

Mood of the people: People are becoming optimistic as we have held Ottoman territory.

Party Power: There is a grey area where the American People lie right now.

President Popularity: N/A

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Year 1961

 

 

Trade Events

 

Status: Increased trade, especially with military goods, with our allies. Virtually no trade with Russia and China. Stagnant trade with the American continents that are not our immediate allies. Virtually no trade with African countries not close to Europe. Trade with Japan and allied Asian remnants is about average and slightly increasing, with military goods as priority.

 

Event 1: News from some of our Asian convoys has been received that there are sea mines being strategically deployed on our routes between us and Japan and Oceania. While no Americans have died yet, we need to figure out how we are going to counter these great threats to our Asian trade routes.

 

Event 2: An envoy from the Ottomans has formally requested that be ship thousands of defensive pieces in order to dig in near Istanbul, as Russians have been building a stronger force there.

 

Economic Events

 

Status: Slightly growing economy, with most of the production being military or food.

 

Event 1: The stock market has been rather stable, though massive fear has been brought among the rich of your campaigned 90% plus tax brackets. What tax plan do you wish to propose?

 

Event 2: Thankfully, as our economy has been war-themed since the days of the American Progress party, we tend to not have major war debts. However, we usually have worked with private businesses for arms. However, as the arms industry is obviously pro-military, and massively conservative due to the industry, how do you wish to approach these companies, knowing that they are afraid of your policies?

 

War Events

 

Status: 48,000 in Ottoman defense, 32,000 in Germany/Scandinavia in terms of American involvement.

 

Ottoman defense: The Russians have begun to massively mobilize on the Bulgarian front, though Ottomans have held them for now. Ottomans have pushed and captured Samsun, massively pushing past the city to form a possible flanking opportunity. As the Russians panicked, US and Ottoman forces struck hard on the armies approaching the capital, capturing many men and pushing vastly forward. However, Russians have now sailed massive equipment to their lake bases, harming our supply lines and limiting further advances on the eastern front. Our southern-eastern front took some damage, making the line much more direct.

 

image.png.f930ea4fc8099dc7a6d5e14f1cc8a06c.png

 

 

Event 1: This is the orders event: approximately 30,000 of the 48,000 US troops in Ottoman lands are protecting the middle line, while about 9,000 are in the north and 9,000 are in the south. Announce military plans, be as specific as can be. You are still the Commander in Chief.

 

Event 2: Since we are not at war, we don't have any obligation to keep volunteers in the Ottomans, so since you campaigned on peace, do you wish to send our men home?

 

Event 3: Tests have shown that we have created very small nuclear reactions in our testing facilities, though not to a very destructive level. Preliminary research on the potential of radiation have been founded, though seem seemingly minor as very little radiation is analyzed in small explosions. What direction or additional focus do you wish to put on Nuclear research?

 

Event 4: This is for any espionage you wish to commit, such as enemy statistics, rebels, etc.

@MBDemSoc

 

Sidenote: Constitution already guarantees equality, something done in the mid 1800s greater than in our timeline. If I am wrong, its happened sometime during the Liberal dominance in the early 1900s.

 

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

Military Strength: Our professional army is 80,000 men and 75 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: Russia and China have a super alliance, same with League of Nations and American Alliances. For reference, Russian borders are pre-our timeline-WW1 Russian borders plus Eastern Turkey, Iraq, Kuwait, and Western Iran, and Chinese expand all the way to border Russia through owning East Iran.

Military: Our military is completely occupied. Some of our military is in Pacific Bases, while others are volunteering in Europe.

Economy: The economy has grown slightly in response to expanded trade and war, but not amazingly.

Trade: Trade grows even more, especially military trade, boosting our economy.

Budget: Our budget is currently balanced, with no debt. Our budget consists of the income of 40% taxes 50% tariff , and 10% overseas territories/canals, and the expenditure of 65% military 15% gov. upkeep 20% infrastructure and 0% deficit growth. (SD: 10)

Social Harmony: The country is united against a possible threat.

Immigration: Immigration levels begin to grow, especially from refugees of the middle east.

Mood of the people: People are becoming optimistic as we have held Ottoman territory.

Party Power: There is a grey area where the American People lie right now.

President Popularity: N/A

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Year 1961

 

 

Trade Events

 

Status: Increased trade, especially with military goods, with our allies. Virtually no trade with Russia and China. Stagnant trade with the American continents that are not our immediate allies. Virtually no trade with African countries not close to Europe. Trade with Japan and allied Asian remnants is about average and slightly increasing, with military goods as priority.

 

Event 1: News from some of our Asian convoys has been received that there are sea mines being strategically deployed on our routes between us and Japan and Oceania. While no Americans have died yet, we need to figure out how we are going to counter these great threats to our Asian trade routes.

 

Event 2: An envoy from the Ottomans has formally requested that be ship thousands of defensive pieces in order to dig in near Istanbul, as Russians have been building a stronger force there.

 

Economic Events

 

Status: Slightly growing economy, with most of the production being military or food.

 

Event 1: The stock market has been rather stable, though massive fear has been brought among the rich of your campaigned 90% plus tax brackets. What tax plan do you wish to propose?

 

Event 2: Thankfully, as our economy has been war-themed since the days of the American Progress party, we tend to not have major war debts. However, we usually have worked with private businesses for arms. However, as the arms industry is obviously pro-military, and massively conservative due to the industry, how do you wish to approach these companies, knowing that they are afraid of your policies?

 

War Events

 

Status: 48,000 in Ottoman defense, 32,000 in Germany/Scandinavia in terms of American involvement.

 

Ottoman defense: The Russians have begun to massively mobilize on the Bulgarian front, though Ottomans have held them for now. Ottomans have pushed and captured Samsun, massively pushing past the city to form a possible flanking opportunity. As the Russians panicked, US and Ottoman forces struck hard on the armies approaching the capital, capturing many men and pushing vastly forward. However, Russians have now sailed massive equipment to their lake bases, harming our supply lines and limiting further advances on the eastern front. Our southern-eastern front took some damage, making the line much more direct.

 

image.png.f930ea4fc8099dc7a6d5e14f1cc8a06c.png

 

 

Event 1: This is the orders event: approximately 30,000 of the 48,000 US troops in Ottoman lands are protecting the middle line, while about 9,000 are in the north and 9,000 are in the south. Announce military plans, be as specific as can be. You are still the Commander in Chief.

 

Event 2: Since we are not at war, we don't have any obligation to keep volunteers in the Ottomans, so since you campaigned on peace, do you wish to send our men home?

 

Event 3: Tests have shown that we have created very small nuclear reactions in our testing facilities, though not to a very destructive level. Preliminary research on the potential of radiation have been founded, though seem seemingly minor as very little radiation is analyzed in small explosions. What direction or additional focus do you wish to put on Nuclear research?

 

Event 4: This is for any espionage you wish to commit, such as enemy statistics, rebels, etc.

Trade events:

1: Send out mine sweepers to dispose of sea mines in areas where mines are less prevalent to help convoys in those areas and send out mine runners to help convoys find safe pathways through areas where mines are more prevalent.

2: Create a program which will provide military materials, food and fuel for free to US Allies and countries that are being invaded by Russia and China which will be called Lend-Lease. (In other words give them what they ask for).

 

Economic Events:

1: Due to slim majorities in both the House and Senate for the Soc Lab & Lib Unofficial Alliance I will be pushing for tax brackets similar to the ones laid out here: https://www.tax-brackets.org/federaltaxtable/1940 also explain to the rich and corporations that the increased tax rates will be used to pay for a universal healthcare system and public works programs which will keep their employees healthy, able to get to their jobs on time better due to better infrastructure, the same goes for the management as well (Post war), most of the increased taxes will go to defence spending and supply production during the war (whether we are officially in it or just assisting allies). Close all corporate tax loopholes

 

2: We will continue to use private arms industries for the time being for military contracts, but we will be seeking the gradual purchase of the industries over time.

Extra: Create the Public Works Administration (PWA) which will be a large-scale public works construction agency. It will build large-scale public works such as dams, bridges, hospitals, and schools.  Create a National Insurance System which all persons of working age which will have to pay into weekly but in return will be entitled to wide range of benefits including Employment and Support Allowance, Incapacity Benefit, Invalidity Benefit, Jobseeker's Allowance, Sickness Benefit, State Earnings-Related Pension Scheme, State Pension, Unemployment Benefit, Widowed Mother’s Allowance, Widowed Parent's Allowance and Widow’s Pension. Create a National Health Service which will be a universal health care system which will be funded through general taxation and national insurance contributions but which will also nationalize existing municipal provision and charitable foundations which cover health. Create the Federal Housing Administration this will standards for construction and underwriting and insures loans made by banks and other private lenders for home building. The goals of this organization are to improve housing standards and conditions, provide an adequate home financing system through insurance of mortgage loans, and to stabilize the mortgage market.  Create the Office of War Mobilization which will be an independent agency of the government which will coordinate all government agencies involved in the war effort. Create the Office of Economic Stabilization which will try to control inflation brought on by the war effort through regulations on price, wage, and salary increases. Create the War Production Board which will direct the conversion of industries from peacetime work to war needs, allocate scarce materials, establish priorities in the distribution of materials and services and prohibit nonessential production.

 

War Events: 

1; Try to flank the enemy troops in the Valley of the Fairy Chimneys using the troops located in and around Samsun and also use the 30,000 as support for the attempted flanking, keep the 9000 in the south on the defensive while the flanking occurs, start a volunteer drive at home get volunteers to help the Ottomans in Bulgaria or move some troops from Germany and Scandinavia if they are static, plant Sea Mines in the Black Sea (if possible) to hinder the sailing of equipment to Russian Lake Bases.

2: Are the volunteers acting as foreign battalions of the Ottoman Army because if not I was not aware (Decision will be made when you clarify their status).

3: Pursue research into the nuclear reactions as a military matter (bombs, missiles etc) so we can have an ace up our sleeves if we end up in direct conflict with Russia and China make this the main focus and have a smaller secondary research objective be the possibility of nuclear power via nuclear fission, nuclear decay and nuclear fusion.

4: Pursue more funding into rebels in territories occupied by the Russians and Chinese, try and sabotage the Russian equipment which is limiting advances and harming supply lines in Turkey, try and find out the exact number of Russian troops in Both the Turkish and Bulgarian fronts.

Year 1962

 

 

Trade Events

 

Status: Increased trade, especially with military goods, with our allies. Virtually no trade with Russia and China. Stagnant trade with the American continents that are not our immediate allies. Virtually no trade with African countries not close to Europe. Trade with Japan and allied Asian remnants is hindered due to mines, though is still active.

 

Event 1 Results: Since dealing with mines is a new thing, we lacked the technology to actually discover mines ahead of time. Due to this, the army used old depleted vessels, as well as pieces of old wooden ships being pushed by newer ships. This creative tactic worked to some extent, but mines are still hurting our convoys.

 

Event 2 Results: The lend lease program passes, and aid is being distributed to our allies, most specifically the Ottomans.

 

Event 3: Utilize this event to throw Government attention towards a specific technology not yet advanced that would impact trade.

 

Economic Events

 

Status: Slightly growing economy, with most of the production being military or food.

 

Event 1 Results: The income tax debate is among the most heated of the century. As there never has been an income tax before, proponents of the new tax are attempting to utilize pro-war paranoia in order for us to massively increase our army with the new tax. Here is how it went:

 

House Committee

 

Socialists have a fair representation on the House's Ways and Means committee. Socialist lawmakers have crafted a new income tax bill, which seeks to tax Americans on a progressive tax bracket system. In order to stand a chance for the increased State revenue, the pro-war socialists, at the risk of alienating anti-war socialists, pushed a crucial need for an increased war budget, noting that going into debt would cause the country much worry. However, the strategy quickly flipped in order to not arouse pro-war support in general, and instead followed a more diplomatic approach as suggested by the President. For the sake of the vote, the House committee has forty members. (9 Socialists, 6 Libertarians, 13 Liberals, and 12 Conservatives)

Libertarian Odds: 5% | 6 nays.

Conservative Odds: 15% | 12 nays.

Liberal Odds: 60% | 7 yeas 6 nays.

Socialist Odds: 90% | 9 yeas.

 

Vote Fails Ways and Means Committee 16-24 Note: I highly recommend trying again, with additional strategies included, and getting the endorsement of other Leaders.

 

Event 2 Results: While we continue our policies, there has been successful socialist agreements within certain industries in friendly States to establish some form of State-subsidized defense industry. Though nothing is secure, there is hope for the socialist future.

 

Event 3 Results: Socialists only have enough clout to push one of their proposals, and the random number generator socialists chose to push the War Production Board. In theory, this board would allow a closer relationship between the government and all industries of the ultimate production of military goods. As a stepping stone has already been extended into the war industries, this board should have a higher chance to pass than originally planned. This will also be given to the Ways and Means Committee, with the same composition as before. Here is how it went:

 

House Committee

 

Libertarian Odds: 10% | 1 yea 5 nays.

Conservative Odds: 25% | 5 yeas 7 nays.

Liberal Odds: 70% | 7 yeas 6 nays.

Socialist Odds: 100% | 9 yeas.

 

Vote Passes Ways and Means Committee 22-18 Note: As this was a non-official event, opposition will have time to formally compile arguments against the Board in order to convince their legislatures. By the time of the next post, the bill will either pass or fail unless some extreme circumstance hinders that.

 

Event 4: Use this event to formalize plans for any of the above Economic Events.

 

War Events

 

Status: 60,000 in Ottoman defense, 20,000 in Germany/Scandinavia in terms of American involvement.

 

Ottoman defense: The Russians have not made any ground on the Bulgarian front. The Russians launched a massive counterattack towards Samsun on their entire northern front, which caused us to lose a lot of land, even with our flanking success. We have pushed the Russians out of their lake position. We have held the southern front, even making advances towards Mersin.

 

image.png.09614f1bc163bf8bbf96469219b791a9.png

 

 

Event 1 Results/Response: Upon receiving of orders, 12,000 volunteers from the static German/Scandinavian border were moved to the Ottomans front, split between the Bulgarian and mid-east front. We successively flanked the middle front, though lost a significant chunk of our northern front due to the Russian counterattack. The volunteer drive was somewhat successful, giving us an immediate 20,000 man boost to our active military if you allow this growth to our military. Use this event to respond to this event.

 

Event 2 Results/Response: We are using our active military as official American volunteers to the Ottoman Army. We command our own divisions on foreign soil, though all of the Americans sent are considered volunteers. Use this event to continue on with this event.

 

Event 3 Results: Test facilities were set up, though in a critical betrayal of our country, our nuclear secrets were leaked to Russian officials. Now, this is an arms race between the two countries.

 

Event 4 Results: Attempts to secure connections to rebel groups in occupied territories was successful, though we learned they aren't interested in immediate rebellion due to the strength of both countries. We have found crucial Russian spots to sabotage, but need the equipment and opportunity to commit such sabotages. Statistics show with a moderate margin of error that 50,000 Russian troops are on the Bulgarian front, and 120,000 are on the Turkish front.

 

Event 5: This event is for additional orders.

 

Event 6: Use this event to respond to the arms race.

 

@MBDemSoc I was high energy today, so enjoy this extended effort in the 1961-1962 year lol.

"Dear Liberal Party Congressional Leaders, I would like to ask whether you would be willing to ask your congressional members that sit on the House Ways and Means committee to support the Income Tax Bill currently going through it and for Congressional support for it once it gets to the House and Senate, also support for the creation of Income Tax".

- Hamilton Humphrey, President of the United States of America. @MBDemSoc sent me this

 

Liberal Response

"The Liberal caucus in the House has voted to lend its support to the Income Tax Bill in the committee, but will not bind its members in a vote on the floor. Should moderate members from the Midwest or the Northeast wish to vote against, the Whip will not be used. I cannot guarantee votes in the Senate, as that is beyond my jurisdiction. 

Sincerely Yours,"

- House Liberal Leader Rep. Russell Fray (L-NY 7th)

Addendum

Senate Liberal Response

"The Liberal caucus in the Senate will wait to see how it progresses on the House floor before making any additional statements on the issue. Like House Leader Fray, we will not bind our members into voting one way or the next.

Respectfully,"

OOC: Made a 1964 scenario somehow for this lol. This is what I got on the opening part of it.

This was the end result. I thought it was accurate.

Event 6: Use this event to respond to the arms race.

 

@MBDemSoc I was high energy today, so enjoy this extended effort in the 1961-1962 year lol.

Trade Events: 

1: Pursue research into minesweeping techniques (contact, distance etc) and minesweeping ships as well as mine detecting and seek out potential alternate routes to the convoys' destinations than the ones being currently used.

2: Good.

3: Pursue research into computer science in order to speed up communication and trade transactions as well as start creating agreements with our allies to limit trade barriers between our respective nations during the war and post-war.

 

Economic Events:

1: Letters have been sent to all other parties congressional leaders to attempt to drum up support for the creation of an income tax we are also going to add these to the tax bill in order to take the heat off of the income tax proposal: Close all corporate tax loopholes. Raise the estate tax, if there isn't one create one.  Institute a graduated corporate tax system. Implement a tax on intercorporate dividends. Institute an excess profits tax. Institute a withholding tax.

2: Good continue these subsidization agreements and slowly expand them.

3: Now that the board has been established start having it convert some industries peacetime work to wartime work (for the lend-lease program) the board will also start making sure that these converted industries have the materials they need.

4: Covered in 1, 2 and 3.

 

War Events: 

1: Send a portion of the volunteer drive to the Ottoman Front specifically in the North to help hold the line and participate in an eventual counterattack, continue the pushes in the centre and southern fronts, assist the Ottomans in creating a similar volunteer drive in their nation which we have begun here.

2: If the Ottomans no longer want the assistance then we will withdraw the troops but if they consent to them remaining then they shall.

3: Apprehend and put the perpetrators of these leaks on trial for treason against the United States of America if they are still within the US.: 

4: Provide what assistance we can to the rebel groups so they can recruit more rebels so when the time comes they can start significant rebellions against their occupiers, Profound the saboteurs with the equipment and use the distraction of the pushes in the centre and south and holding the line in the North as the opportunity.

5: No extra orders.

6: Send spies over to Russia (if possible) to keep an eye on where they are up to in terms over nuclear development, also keep me updated on the US progress in terms of nuclear power and weapons.

Conservative Response

"Mr. President, we greatly appreciate your overtures but must categorically decline. The implementation of such a tax runs contrary to all values which we hold dear. Perhaps if an addendum were added to include an expiration on this tax were added at the ratification of a peace treaty, that such a tax would only kick in when the United States were in a bona fide, declared state of war and the Congress had resolved to utilize such a power could we support this measure. But at current moment I can offer no aid nor comfort in your pursuit of ratification.

God Bless,"

-Rep. Lawrence "Larry" Silverstream (C, AZ-1) House Conservative Conference (HCC) Chairman

 

 

"Mr. President, I am thankful, as is the Conference, that you are consulting with Congressional leaders. I must, unfortunately, decline your request and inform you of an organized effort on behalf of the Conservative and Libertarian Parties to defeat this measure as we march forward in the coming days and weeks. My members will be filibustering any attempt at a permanent income tax. We'd also note a Constitutional Amendment is required to implement this tax, something we are very serious about.

God Bless,"

- Sen. Ben Larson (C-MD) Senate Conservative Conference (SCC) Chairman

The President thanks the Conservative Party Leaders for their response, the Socialist Labor Party will craft a constitutional amendment to allow for this tax to be implemented (OOC: I'll just use the IRL 16th Amendment).

I don't see how Humphrey jumped ahead and won, or how the Libertarians got 20.9% of the vote, i'd think it be something like 0.1%, but yeah, pretty on point.

Made a map of the 1960 election in the main 50 states, never knew we'd actually make a rumble as Libertarians, thanks for being lazy @Reagan04(not meant sarcastically)
