New Historical President RP

Recommended Posts

1969 VOTE Phase --- Anyone can try to influence the vote.

 

Note: I will not show vote tallies for Amends to Bills, as that would take much more time.

 

Note 2: Bills are informally done in this rp in order to promote speed and efficiency.

 

Note 3: Some changes to original bills may be done by me in order to promote fluidity."

 

(InsertVote) HB.1: "A bill has just reached the House Floor, which proposes to raise the reserve count to 300,000 through various recruitment drives. However, we will lose up to 50% of our surplus gain to help equip and pay for these reserves. Any additional funds will be re-directed to military research and development."

(InsertVote) C.R.1: "A concurrent resolution has just reached the Senate Floor, which makes it a message of Congress that steps should be taken to allow the gradual decolonization of occupied areas, as long as they are transitioned into a well-functioning democracy. Congress recommends that the United States send election monitors to aid in democratic newly independent or transitioning nations."

(InsertVote) SB.1: "A bill has just reached the Senate Floor, which allows for the creation of the DEA, supervised under the Attorney General, to enforce any drug laws created by Congress. The DEA's primary purpose is to help the States deal with any drug related problem. Marijuana, Cocaine, Heroin, LSD, and other illicit Narcotics and Opiates are the DEA's primary focus. The DEA will also sponsor rehabilitation centers where people that have become addicted to any form of drug can enter with full amnesty to heal and rehabilitate."

(InsertVote) HB.2: "The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) shall be created, which duties include promoting public health, regulating drugs outside the control of other Government agencies, and regulating the process of food production."

(InsertVote) SB.2: "Circuit Court Justices must be limited to one fifteen year term, while Supreme Court Justices are limited to twenty year terms, and once the twenty year term is served the President may choose to re-nominate the Justice or nominate a new candidate."

(InsertVote) HB.3: "Federal funding to States that mandate abstinence only education, support traditional definitions of sex, and promote moral values."

Aye  HB.1: "A bill has just reached the House Floor, which proposes to raise the reserve count to 300,000 through various recruitment drives. However, we will lose up to 50% of our surplus gain to help equip and pay for these reserves. Any additional funds will be re-directed to military research and development."

Aye SB.1: "A bill has just reached the Senate Floor, which allows for the creation of the DEA, supervised under the Attorney General, to enforce any drug laws created by Congress. The DEA's primary purpose is to help the States deal with any drug related problem. Marijuana, Cocaine, Heroin, LSD, and other illicit Narcotics and Opiates are the DEA's primary focus.

Nay HB.2: "The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) shall be created, which duties include promoting public health, regulating drugs outside the control of other Government agencies, and regulating the process of food production."

Nay SB.2: "Circuit Court Justices must be limited to one fifteen year term, while Supreme Court Justices are limited to twenty year terms, and once the twenty year term is served the President may choose to re-nominate the Justice or nominate a new candidate."

Aye! HB.3: "Federal funding to States that mandate abstinence only education, support traditional definitions of sex, and promote moral values."

The Conservative Caucus makes particular outreach to Southern Liberals with high percentages of Black Protestant churches to make outreach on HB.3, it should be known that this is a widely popular measure and it is in the best interest of the nation to pass it with flying colors.

Liberal leaders whip in favor of most but the HB3 which is a horrific amendment. If Conservatices believe in staying out of education Liberals don’t see why to tell teachers what to teach. We will whip hard against the last amendment.

Sen. Jim Dobb (CO), Secretary of the Senate Evangelical Caucus, addresses Liberal concerns and the nation at large.

The Conservative position on this is well known, the Lens Plan is widely popular among the people and among teachers, it's a strong state-level initiative to safeguard our children that deserves Federal Funding. It doesn't need to be federally mandated because it's sweeping the states so quickly with it just recently being adopted in my home state Colorado as well as Iowa bringing it up to 26/52 states. This is a plan endorsed by half the nation and the Conservatives believe it deserves the Financial support of the Federal Government too fund its ambitious goal of educating the generation of tomorrow on the important issues and moral questions with which they will be faced. To call such a plan horrific is a sad state of affairs and we call on all American voters, all American Parents, and simply all Americans who care for the future generations of this nation to look on Washington as an example of flushing futures down the drain. We can't afford to let this go on any longer, this fundamental abdication of our duty as a nation to protect our children from evil and to instill in them values which have exalted our nation's past and continue to lead us into a bright future. We mustn't let that brightness grow dim, and we mustn't allow this piece of legislation to fail. Just a few weeks ago, Mrs. LaHaye, a colleague of mine from the House, stood up and addressed the nation. We were proud of the grit and determination she showed to the American people and it is in that spirit that we say tonight, we will not allow politicians to take away a bright future from this land and its children. We refuse to allow a commonsense measure to educate our children on anti-drug, anti-sodomy, pro-abstinence, and pro-America platform be defeated by politicians who would only wish to see that good-natured message be distorted into something that it is not. Well, enough is enough, the American people will stand tall against the menaces which seek to steal its future away from it, and in 1970 we will roar with such sound as to break the barrier between Washington and the rest of the nation so that maybe D.C. could finally listen to its constituents. There is a wave on the horizon, and it will be the American people steering it directly towards the seats of power which have neglected their duty to protect their families. Thank you all and God Bless America. I will take a few questions.

Sen. Nathaniel Lauss delivers the Liberal rebuttal from his hometown of Springfield, Illinois. 

Hello, America. My name remains largely unknown for most of you. But, that doesn't matter. Today, I bring an important issue to the front of your minds: it appears once again the Conservatives are intent on indoctrinating our children in their viewpoint.

The Liberal view is very clear: why mess up something that isn't hurting anybody? The accusations the Conservatives level are completely unfounded in fact or reason. However, they clearly have one thing in it: discrimination. It appears the Conservatives would like to mess around in everyone's private lives rather than leaving them to the individual to decide. Is this freedom, Senator? I clearly see that it is not. Twenty-six governors, sixty-three senators, and over 60% of the US House agrees.

Abstinence is not the only solution, it never is and it rarely works. The Conservatives appear to be specializing in 16th century politics as of now. Medieval solutions to a modern problem never works and this will not work either.  Can't the Conservatives just leave the average American alone rather than interfere with their education? You don't see Liberals crusading to make alternatives legal - we are fine leaving it up to the states. It seems the Conservatives would rather use the "big government" philosophy they pretend they detest.

This effort was defeated decades ago by a heroic Liberal stand against a tidal wave of discrimination. Now, I stand here warning you to get to the ramparts because we face another affront now. We will protect Americans' right to their privacy and their own free will. We are not afraid to defend Americans of every creed and every background. We are not afraid to stand up to Conservatives who wish us to bend to every demand they set. We are not afraid to stand against the Socialists who believe that we should weaken our nation while the world around us gets stronger. We are Liberals and we are united. Most importantly, we are united as Americans. 

At the end of the day, we are all Americans, but it seems like Conservatives would rather add an asterisk than accept everyone as who they are. Thank you, and God bless us all.  @Kingthero

There will be no further Liberal comment until the vote progresses.

Conservative Floor Leader Phyllis Slater (MO-2) is asked for comment on Sen. Lauss' Address at her Pre-Vote Press Conference.

Slater: "Yes, ABC"

ABC: "Leader Slater, do you have any comments on Sen. Lauss' televised address on H.B. 3 given last night?"

Slater: "I'd like to keep it brief because its quite obvious the Liberals aren't interested in talking about reforming and supporting what's taught in our schools. So I'll just say this, its incredibly sad that the Liberal Party has joined with the Far Left in opposing common sense reform that the majority of the nation feels is necessary for safeguarding the next generation. These are our children folks. As a mom, with 3 kids back home in Suburban St. Louis, I'm scared for them, like millions of American parents and guardians I fear that our children aren't being given the proper skills to fight the drugs and behaviors prevalent of the societal ills they may face. The Liberal attempt to label this "indoctrination" is regrettable and is a low jab to a program that has already helped get America's kids on the right track. This isn't big government tyranny, indoctrination, or any other of the 20 buzzwords used by Senator Lauss last night, this is a government offering aid to local educators in their aim of educating our children to be thoughtful and upright people. And as both Mrs. LaHaye and Mr. Dobb have said, I don't know how on earth anyone finds reprehense, perversion, or indoctrination in that. Now I have to get to the floor, thank you all so much and God Bless you."

She brushes past excited reporters shouting questions as she enters the House chamber.

1969 RESULTS Phase --- President Acts on Legislation, and End of the Year Debate Occurs

 

Note: I will actually have whole party and caucus totals for votes, but to save me from insanity I will only give them upon request (Its taken me hours to build a partially automated spreadsheet, and typing in anymore text right now just makes me want to gag).

 

(Passes House 70%, Passes Senate 78/104) HB.1: "A bill has just reached the House Floor, which proposes to raise the reserve count to 300,000 through various recruitment drives. However, we will lose up to 50% of our surplus gain to help equip and pay for these reserves. Any additional funds will be re-directed to military research and development."

It takes forever to do one of these manually, so this is when I decided to spend many hours making a spreadsheet...

(Passes House 81%, Passes Senate 87/104) C.R.1: "A concurrent resolution has just reached the Senate Floor, which makes it a message of Congress that steps should be taken to allow the gradual decolonization of occupied areas, as long as they are transitioned into a well-functioning democracy. Congress recommends that the United States send election monitors to aid in democratic newly independent or transitioning nations."

(Passes House 71%, Passes Senate 83/104) SB.1: "A bill has just reached the Senate Floor, which allows for the creation of the DEA, supervised under the Attorney General, to enforce any drug laws created by Congress. The DEA's primary purpose is to help the States deal with any drug related problem. Marijuana, Cocaine, Heroin, LSD, and other illicit Narcotics and Opiates are the DEA's primary focus. The DEA will also sponsor rehabilitation centers where people that have become addicted to any form of drug can enter with full amnesty to heal and rehabilitate."

(Passes House 70%, Passes Senate 62/104) HB.2: "The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) shall be created, which duties include promoting public health, regulating drugs outside the control of other Government agencies, and regulating the process of food production."

(Passes House 61%, Passes Senate 64/104) SB.2: "Circuit Court Justices must be limited to one fifteen year term, while Supreme Court Justices are limited to twenty year terms, and once the twenty year term is served the President may choose to re-nominate the Justice or nominate a new candidate."

(Fails House 39%) HB.3: "Federal funding to States that mandate abstinence only education, support traditional definitions of sex, and promote moral values."

 

American Polling will occur AFTER the President acts.

The President will sign the bills that were passed into law. She celebrates the passing of SB2, HB1, and CR1 especially. She announces that the rehabilitation centers will be the primary focus of the administration to set up.

@Hestia11

The Conservatives celebrate the passage of H.B. 1, C.R.1 and S.B. 1. But they are disappointed with a President's inability to renominate a Circuit Judge in S.B. 2. However, they are obviously most interested in H.B. 3 and will be taking the issue into 1970.

I had an idea that I think @Reagan04 would agree with me on. I think it's no secret that we've had less people playing this game, and it's largely 3 people that submit characters. It's unrealistic that only 1 person declares for primaries, but I know it's practically impossible to have it any other way, besides this: what if you could submit 2 candidates (provided you had time) but they could only be from the same party? @Kingthero I just thought it might help us with some more primary action and intra-party dynamics.

Funny enough, I was discussing this with King, I proposed that since the game is in the late game and is now a more of slow Congressional and Party based burn, that the players make up their primaries more interesting with caucuses and such.

1970 Candidate Phase

 

Off-years will be focused on election campaigns for midterms. In the first phase, people will be able to enter various stated gubernatorial primaries in order to establish characters or shift regions. The next phase will be the campaigning phase.

 

New York Gubernatorial:

 

California Gubernatorial:

 

Texas Gubernatorial:

 

Tennessee Gubernatorial:

 

Minnesota Gubernatorial:

 

If desired, make candidates for each of the five elections, or endorse other parties. Each off-year will consist of five governorship elections, aimed at shifting regional politics. Since it is not as important as a Presidential year, I will continue even if people don't post, but I will attempt to ping those who would be interested.

New York Gubernatorial:

OOC: I know there's been interest for others, so he can run here

 

California Gubernatorial:

Rep. Joseph Klint (CA-14) of the Loyalist Faction is expected to get the Liberal nod. He is a close ally of the President's in Congress and has been seeking a way to move up in the party ranks. A victory in California would aid that greatly. Although a more typical Conservative state, they are hoping they can foray with Klint as the nominee. 

 

Texas Gubernatorial: 

Sec. of Agriculture Erin Ocean of the Loyalist faction has the strong in-state support of the President. No other faction would be able to guarantee any sort of support other than the Loyalists in Texas. She has nationwide experience and the President anticipates to campaign in Texas on her behalf. Close allies politically, the two plan to work together often.

 

Tennessee Gubernatorial:

Tenn. Attorney General Matthew Blazer of the Secondary faction (supporters of the VP) is thought to be the strongest nominee for the Liberals. Slightly more to the left of the Liberal party as a whole, he has the strongest support of the local Liberal party to run.

 

Minnesota Gubernatorial: 

Fmr. Lt. Governor Patty Sky of the New Way faction is expected to be the Liberal nominee. A staunch supporter of Sen. Nathaniel Lauss (L-IL) she is expected to get some support from across state lines for her bid. There is an estimation that she may not be able to guarantee a Presidential visit because of this.

1970 Candidate Phase

 

Off-years will be focused on election campaigns for midterms. In the first phase, people will be able to enter various stated gubernatorial primaries in order to establish characters or shift regions. The next phase will be the campaigning phase.

 

New York Gubernatorial:

 

California Gubernatorial:

 

Texas Gubernatorial:

 

Tennessee Gubernatorial:

 

Minnesota Gubernatorial:

 

If desired, make candidates for each of the five elections, or endorse other parties. Each off-year will consist of five governorship elections, aimed at shifting regional politics. Since it is not as important as a Presidential year, I will continue even if people don't post, but I will attempt to ping those who would be interested.

New York Gubernatorial:

Sec. of State Charles Winchester long time member of the Liberal party and a member of the loyalist faction but is not happy with the VP. Have served as senator from NY for 3 terms before becoming Secretary of State. His family is hugely popular in the state his father is former governor Henry Winchester Sr. and his brother is Rep. David Winchester that is part of New Way faction of the Liberal party.

California Gubernatorial:

Sen. Elinor Blake a memeber of the conservative party. She is a very conservative woman from LA did serve as both Lt.Governor and state attorney before running for the senate has served two terms in the senate now. She is a huge critic of the president.

Texas Gubernatorial:

Mr. Leon Fitzroy is running as an independent in Texas. A billionaire who made his fortune in oil and his family ranch. He is not memeber of any party but you can feel that he is most close to the conservative party. 

 

(OOC: Hope is okay that i made candidates from differents parties and a independent.)

New York Gubernatorial:

Rep. Lawrence Acris (NY-9) runs as a moderate conservative of the Crusader Faction and is largely agreed upon by everyone to be the strongest contender for the general election. His main platform issues are reforming the tax and building code to unleash economic growth and he shies away from the social issues which sit idle in the state of New York. The way he sees it, he can best run a campaign for Downstate New York if he steers clear of his activist base and makes a bolt for the center. But that's just when, in a park in the Upper East Side, just a block away from his apartment, State Senator Bill Buckley, well known Conservative Bruiser in Albany, entered the race decrying Acris as a "snoozer" and "milquetoast man". Buckley focused extensively on the wealthier regions of Long Island, Staten Island and Upstate New York with his Social Conservative plea of electing him Governor based on his support for the Lens Plan which he has passed several times through the State Senate and even the State House but had always died on the Governor's desk. And when he campaigned in his native Manhattan as well as the Bronx he brought out his rough and tumble personality that won him the hearts and minds but mostly the guts of the New York Working Conservative. The Establishment as backed by the well-funded Rep. Acris of Astoria, Queens was now challenged by the Activist base as represented by Upper East Side's favorite "Man of Manhattan" State Sen. Buckley. 

In the end, the campaign shook the Conservative establishment of New York, with the State Senator winning a decisive 54-46 victory over a Congressman long thought to be a shoe-in. After carrying hefty margins Upstate in Buffalo, Syracuse, and Rochester while getting socked in Albany and much of the Downstate Suburbs and Long Island, it was ultimately the Working Class votes that thinned Acris' margins in the Bronx and Manhattan and sent Buckley over the top.

California Gubernatorial:

The original Conservative Favorite Daughter, Rep. Beverley LaHaye (CA-35) was originally considering a run for the seat. However, when her good friend and Congressional partner Sen. Blake ( @Alexak1209) jumped into the race, she knew that her place was elsewhere, and that place was the United States Senate seat being vacated by Senator Blake. The outgoing Conservative Governor of California, Right-Wing Stalwart Bradley Phillips, likewise has endorsed Senator Blake and it appears the activist base is going to run away with this nomination.

Texas Gubernatorial:

The gatekeeper of the Texas Conservative Party is known to all to be Sen. Heidi Chalcedon, young, smart as a whip, with a lot of power in Washington as Chairwoman of the Senate Evangelical Caucus, many attribute Texas' ratification of the Lens Plan to her looming influence over the state capital in this Conservative stronghold. As such, it seems only fitting that a Chalcedon Acolyte would be the nominee of the TXCP. Enter Mayor of Forth Worth, John Jackson Lee. Mayor Lee is the current President of the Mayoral Association of America and has been a bulldog in the city of Fort Worth, pushing Conservative education reforms in the city and, with the support of Senator Chalcedon, being the working model for the statewide implementation of the Lens Plan. No one is seen to better energize both social and economic conservatives than Mayor Lee and with the enthusiastic endorsement of the Conservative Texas heavyweights, and even the admiration of Crusader Stalwarts such as Rep. Don Raul (TX-14), it's hard to see anyone beating him for the nomination.

Tennessee Gubernatorial:

It's no secret that for many years the Deep South, excluding Texas and Florida, had fledgling branches of the Conservative Party. However, as America has experienced great social change, the Deep South has been fertile soil for religious revivals in Black Evangelical Churches. This new phenomenon, being dubbed Black Revival Politics, has brought new interest to Religious Black Americans in the Deep South to the Conservative Party which seems to share their socially conservative positions. As such, there are not many bona fide Tennessee Conservative Politicians, which has given rise to one of the most charismatic speakers of the generation to take control of the Tennessee activist base by storm. Rev. Elijah Lloyd Johnson of the First Evangelical Church of Memphis, Tennessee has risen as a star across the Deep South as a TV Preacher of Evangelical Politics and the growing menace of secularism, grabbing the attention of many residents of the Deep South. His personally friend, Reverend turned Representative Jerry McDowell (VA-6) has also come to campaign for him, he is expected to clinch the nomination seeing as there is not much of a TNCP establishment, but can his fiery charisma and popular politics carry his general lack of experience?

Minnesota Gubernatorial:

Rep. Orm Amundsen (MN-1) of Suburban St. Paul is largely seen as a Farm-based hybrid of Crusader and Evangelical beliefs. Coming from a deeply religious family and have those beliefs but prioritizing economic issues, he is the dream candidate of the activist Conservative movement in Minnesota. And they're in luck, not only has he announced his candidacy, but wildly popular House Minority Leader Phyllis Slater (MO-3) has come to stump for him and he is incredibly likely to win the nomination on his grassroots campaign based largely on the large Midwestern Right-Wing Activist organization.
