State of the Union for Election of 1904

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

National Strength: We rank 6th in the list of the top 10 countries: Russia, Great Britain, Germany,  Japan, Mexico, United States, Italy, France, Austria, Canada. The latter country has just been given independence from Great Britain. Our economy is improving, so we are likely to shoot up this list. 

Military Strength: Our professional army is 60,000 men and 58 ships. We have naval bases in Hawaii, Cuba, and Panama. We have a strong enough army for defense, but not to wage war. 

Foreign Affairs: We are currently arming anti-Communists in France. 

Military: Our military is mostly inactive. Our navy patrols our naval bases. 

Economy: The economy, after two years of a high tariff, is showing a growth of domestic industry. We have finally slipped out of a recession, and it seems likely the economy could improve to pre-Civil War levels. 

Trade: See the economy section.

Budget: Our budget is slightly increasing because of tariff revenue, but it would be nice to have more revenue. Tax bills have failed. 

Social Harmony: Area with heavy labor populations are likely going to see many strikes, some violent. 

Immigration: European, Chinese, Jewish, and Slavic immigrants are coming in larger numbers. Some are calling for a literacy test. 

Mood of the people: Wage workers and poor farmers are disgruntled, but the country mostly has a positive outlook. 

Popularity of the Incumbent: The president has some popularity, but some see the fact that most of his legislation did not pass as a sign of weakness. He still has a decent chance at reelection. 

Party Power: Liberals are likely to see more seats as labor forces organize. Socialists will also see gains, but may cut into Labor gains. Progress will likely stay about where they are at. Conservatives will probably lose some seats in the Northeast and Midwest, but could see gains on the West Coast.

Platform (see State of the Union):

VP nominee: 

 

Name and office: Sen. Arty J. Talbot (1858-1947)

Race and gender, if other than white male:

Party: Conservative

Resident state: New York

Arty is the scion of a wealthy New York banker family. He is young, charming and well-connected throughout the banks and industries. Despite being well-known around the establishment, Arty is a fighter for the interest of other people as well. He can make the difference and has proven so as Senator of NY since 1899. Most of his constituents love the funny and unconventional personality of Arty and now he seeks to win at national level as well.

Platform (see State of the Union): 

National Strength: It is our duty to further improve ourselves here. It is our duty because America is the greatest nation on earth and we need to make sure for our people to live in a strong country. A strong country means a strong economy. A strong economy means a lo of job opportunities and employment leads to happiness. We must for our our people to get on the top again.

Military Strength: Seems fine to me. We will not fight other countries wars again, we need to protect our families and not put them into grieve again. 

Foreign Affairs: Continue to arm anti-communists. Our factories gain profit which leads to higher wages for the workers and we fight a dangerous and totally hostile ideology. Never allow this tyranny to arrive as competitive ideology in our wonderful country. 

Military: We need our army to defend our people, not to fight overseas another countries wars.

Economy: Conservative policies built the basis here. By electing another Conservative into the highest office people will have a real chance to get a buzzing economy again.

Trade: Trade is a valuable thing. Years of Liberal/Liberty leadership made us the most hated country among our former European allies. The last years improved our reputation, but we can still work here to get more profit for our workers, laborers and farmers.

Budget: It is our duty to get more revenue. The high tariffs for hostile countries are a must, but I hope that Conservative policies combined with more trade, more exports and cut taxes and denationalized businesses will propel us into a new era of prosperity. 

Social Harmony: What we need is to make sure why people are protesting in order to address their problems. We cannot ignore the interests of the backbone of our nation. The Conservative Party represents all interests, whether you are the employer or the employee. We must also make sure that problems are already addressed at state level.

Immigration: A literacy test is a must to get the best immigrants. We cannot let anyone in, when we do not even have enough jobs for our own people. Keep an eye on French and Italian immigrants. Perhaps they are communist spies sent to undermine our great and free Democracy.

Mood of the people: A Talbot administration will not let anyone down. It does not matter where you live, as what you work or which skin color you have, we will work for you.

Popularity of the Incumbent: The only way to get things actually down is to elect a Conservative as president. We have seen during the last four years how weak this office can be executed and this is not what people want. They want a strong voice in the White House.

Party Power: We can only urge people to vote Conservative down-ballot. A president is no dictator so we need a working majority in both houses to defend your interests.

VP nominee: John Rodgers TX

@Conservative Elector 2 I got it updated to now, along with adding the colors to the bars. Unless there is an easier way to do it, changing colors means going to the classic editor's source code.

Thank you very much

OCC: I'm bogged down by projects and it may take a bit for me to find the time to calculate the election. I'll probably only be on this forum occasionally for the near future. I propose that @Kingthero takes over as Master of the RP until I can return (he can obviously keep the role if he proves good at it). If he agrees, someone will have to take over his party. If he can't take over, then maybe someone else can be found or I can continue at it but at a much slower scale. I'd like to see this RP continue. Should KingThero or someone else take over, I may be able to make a candidate so I can stay involved, but I will likely check in on the board only a couple of times a day. I will type out an email or message to anyone that takes over, so they know how I conduct it, but they are free to choose their own method.

OoC:I hope you’ll be able to unscramble everything, it sounds really stressful! I totally understand wanting to pass this on and I totally support kingthero taking over if he’d want it. I don’t think I’d be able to with my schedule getting busier this fall, but I’ll keep participating.

I would be delighted to take over if that were necessary because my party has a secondary leader. I Love this kind if thing as you know.

OOC: At first I would like to say that this is a rather sad news of course. @vcczar does a tremendous job here and for me this is the best RP ever. I am already sad about the fact that someday we will get to 2020. Of course I have immense respect for all other projects Vcczar has to do, so we need acknowledge that there is a life outside of this forum. I would love to see it continued by Vcczar himself, even if it is slower than usual (we could use the time to coordinate the Wiki project), but if the majority votes to have a fast progress I think both @Reagan04 and @Kingthero would be more than qualified to do this, although I would prefer Reagan otherwise the Progress Party might lose it's initial face. But it is not my decision, I do not want to play the RP master anyway. I hope to see this continue and perhaps Reagan who seems enthusiastically about it, wants to lead a new one when this RP has ended or he wants to lead us behind 2020. :) I am curious.

OCC: I picked @Kingthero because he's been a moderate, middle of the road person throughout this RP, and I think that's the right mindset for an RPer. In this sense, he'd be preferable to me in this role. He can certainly pass it on to @Reagan04, who I think would conduct it with great energy and skill as well, if he wants. I'll likely make a candidate, but I don't have the time to devote to it as RP master with all the projects I have going on right now.

1904 Election

Welcome to the election of 1904! We have had a very interesting race, from the strategies of emotion and appeal to the strategies of reason and realism. This election is not in the bag of the current President, as he is seen by members of his own party as a somewhat lame duck. Also, many passionate supporters of labor are throwing their votes towards the new labor party, as well as the radical-themed socialist party, even though we should see some drama as socialism is an ideal frowned upon in the vast majority of the United States. The Progress Party has made appeals outside of the West, but unlike Barker, Inning doesn't make the mistake of alienating his core support. Conservatives should see some gains, especially due to the scramble of pro-labor parties.

Primaries

The only significant primary this time around was in the Conservative Party between John Rodgers and Arty J. Talbot. Talbot is seen as a young, charismatic, and is very appealing to the rich and the cities, while Rodgers is seen as mature and popular among former Confederates, Westerners, and rural farmers. The middle class should decide this primary, along with the various ideals of the two candidates.

 

Talbot: 49.6%

 

Rodgers: 50.4%

 

The newspapers were all predicting an easy Talbot victory, but with Rodger's experience and popularity among more conservative conservatives, he snatched the victory.

 

RP Note: Both candidates had super similar stances, which resulted in a vaguer divide between the candidates, resulting in a more similar vote.

 

General Election Round 1

Rothschild/Cartwright (Lib) 229 EV 30% PV [ME, VT, NH, NY, MA, CT, RI, DE, PA, OH, IA, NC, GA, TN, AL, MS, AR, LA]

Rodgers/Hillsbury (Con) 160 EV 30% PV [WA, TX, MN, WI, MI, IN, MO, KY, WV, MD, NJ, VA, SC, FL]

Inning/Jones (Pro) 60 EV 30% PV [ND, SD, KS, NE, MT, WY, CO, ID, UT, NV, OR, CA]

Dobs/Thomash (Soc) 27 EV 8% PV [IL]

Weaver/Blumm (Lab) 0 EV 2% PV

 

RP Note: Progress did substantially better than the EV count has them at; however, they missed the 1# spot by mere thousands of votes in five states. Southern industries, slowly aging form the old days of Liberty, have begun to flip Conservative in lower african american % States, however the odds did not expect Conservatives to carry such States. Illinois was a five way race, with socialists edging just over Progress.

General Election Round 2

(Lib) 257 EV 45% PV [Gains all Progress except CA, ID, MT; gains SC and VA; loses PA and DE]

(Con) 219 EV 55% PV [Gains CA, ID, MT, IL; gains PA and DE; loses SC and VA]

RP Note: If the conservatives held on to SC and VA, Delaware was going to be the final decider state. However, hesitance and culture swung the states back to the Liberals. The West was hostile to the Gold standard, and had a conservative candidate not mention it, the Conservatives would likely have pulled the election.

Congress

Conservatives 45% Senate 38% US Rep

Progress 30% Senate 25% US Rep

Liberal 25% Senate 25% US Rep

Socialists 0% Senate 10% US Rep

Labor 0% Senate 2% US Rep

RP Note: Conservatives nearly take the house, and with a supermajority of the Senate Progress and Conservative Senators can likely pass articles of impeachment or obstruct executive decisions, however the House would likely block it unless the President pushed its members even further away.

 

@Conservative Elector 2 @vcczar Events/Decisions will be posted once maps are posted, likely either late tonight or tomorrow.

Speaker Rodgers is excited to have his gavel returned, he announces he shall retire from the House in 1908 no matter what, but adds that doesn't mean politics in general. Many speculate that this means he will be running for the Presidency one last time in 1908 before he retires all together

Former Two-Term Indiana Governor Ted Hillsbury announces bid for Special Election to fill vacant Senate seat in November 1905

 

Former President and Founder of the Conservative Party Frederick J. Carpenter found dead in Family Lodge in Utica, New York, October 11th, 1905; returned to New York City home to be interred at St. Patrick's Cathedral as the President converted to Catholicism in 1898. The President was 73 years old.

State of the Union after the Election of 1904

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

National Strength: We rank 6th in the list of the top 10 countries: Russia, Great Britain, Germany,  Japan, Mexico, United States, Italy, France, Austria, Canada. The latter country has just been given independence from Great Britain. Our economy is improving, so we are likely to shoot up this list. 

Military Strength: Our professional army is 60,000 men and 58 ships, with a reserve army of 120,000 men solely for defense. We have naval bases in Hawaii, Cuba, and Panama. While we can do foreign invasions, we would likely have to perform a draft to do a full invasion.

Foreign Affairs: We are currently arming pro-monarchist forces in France. 

Military: Our military is mostly inactive. Our navy patrols our naval bases. 

Economy: The economy is in a state of growth, however no economist can pin to exactly what is growing the economy. Some say the tariffs, had, but others say that the economy was growing before the tariffs were implemented, likely due to the stable bimetalism currency.

Trade: Our trade is average among third world nations, and limited with Europe, though growing.

Budget: Our budget is slightly increasing because of tariff revenue, and soon will have canal income.

Social Harmony: Strikes may happen, but the country is in a status of panic after event 4#.

Immigration: European, Chinese, Jewish, and Slavic immigrants are coming in larger numbers. Some are calling for a literacy test. 

Mood of the people: The mood of the people is modest, except for some wage workers and farmers. Much of this feeling awaits your decision.

Party Power: Conservatives have the speaker of the house, while Progress has the senate leadership, according to their deal. Progress has grown ballot support, while Liberals are getting weaker.

 

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

 

Events and Decisions for March 1905 - March 1909 for Pres. Rothschild @Hestia11

1) The Rise of Automotives

Over the past few years, automotives have been becoming more and more mainstream, as they have been rapidly decreasing in price. As Europe was embroiled in war, they didn't jumpstart their automotive industry, leaving space open for American industries to grow. A man by the name of Denny Gord, founder of Gord automotives, comes to the whitehouse and offers to discuss automotive policies with you. Will you accept his offer to discuss automotive practices, or do you wish to not worry about automotives?

2) Panama Canal Business

With the Canal more or less complete, official administration of future spending ends this year. The Barker administration promised to use these funds to pay off Farmer's debts. Will you fulfill this promise, or drop this fund altogether and put it back into the budget?

3) Panama Canal Blockades

Military advisers discuss with you the opportunity to close off the canal to community France and socialist Italy. France has a lot to lose, while Italy has little to lose, since France has pacific colonies.

4) Great Illinois Fire Riot

Fueled by the electoral gain in Round 1 of the election, some anti-government socialist protesters gathered near a subsidized arms factory, and decided to form a wall around the factory, trapping the workers inside. As they formed a wall, the factory owners tried to call the local law enforcement to control the riot, however after many hours the protesters threw stones and torches through the factory's windows, causing a massive explosion killing all 1,352 workers and administrators inside as well as 267 protesters outside, and 17 law enforcement officers. This explosion in the arms factory caused a massive fire, which has engulfed most of downtown Illinois.

 

People are calling this the greatest non-war domestic tragedy of the century, and are protesting at the White House begging for fire safety laws, strike-breaking laws, and any other laws that would have prevented this tragedy from happening.

5) Underground Trains

Starting in New York, massive projects created by city officials have begun to be completed. As this is a new technology, many are worried about cave-ins obstructing millions of dollars of work. Will the Federal Government propose any legislation relating to underground activity?

6) Environmental Conservatism

There has been recent effort, especially in the younger generation, to preserve parts of land to be used as only limited tourist attractions. There have been previous mentions of environmental policy in regards to land zoning, but what formal law do you wish to implement regarding this?

7) French Coup Progress

In an extraordinary event, the Pro-monarchist faction deals a decisive blow to the Pro-republic forces, entering the coup into a two sided conflict between the monarchist and communist forces. However, the former republic forces are split between the two organized sides, creating weak points all throughout France. Is there any change that your administration wants to do towards this conflict? There is worry that Germany or Britain will now invade a weakened France.

😎 American Debt

As time goes on, the Debt grows more and more, and right now interest payments have exceeded 3% of our national budget. As this 3% of money could fund a great number of things, many economists wish for you to pay off the debt.

 

Are there any actions you wish to do to address the debt?

9) Pacific Expansion

Some military advisers have reminded you that communist France owns pacific colonies, especially some that have valuable rare minerals. They desire that you work with the monarchist forces to take over these islands in exchange for the handing over of certain islands.

10) Western Border Trouble

Ever since Canada has been independent, settlers going to American Alaska from American Washington have sometimes been held by Canadian authorities, as no clear agreement exists with the travel between the two regions. How shall your administration settle this?

State of the Union after the Election of 1904

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

National Strength: We rank 6th in the list of the top 10 countries: Russia, Great Britain, Germany,  Japan, Mexico, United States, Italy, France, Austria, Canada. The latter country has just been given independence from Great Britain. Our economy is improving, so we are likely to shoot up this list. 

Military Strength: Our professional army is 60,000 men and 58 ships, with a reserve army of 120,000 men solely for defense. We have naval bases in Hawaii, Cuba, and Panama. While we can do foreign invasions, we would likely have to perform a draft to do a full invasion.

Foreign Affairs: We are currently arming pro-monarchist forces in France. 

Military: Our military is mostly inactive. Our navy patrols our naval bases. 

Economy: The economy is in a state of growth, however no economist can pin to exactly what is growing the economy. Some say the tariffs, had, but others say that the economy was growing before the tariffs were implemented, likely due to the stable bimetalism currency.

Trade: Our trade is average among third world nations, and limited with Europe, though growing.

Budget: Our budget is slightly increasing because of tariff revenue, and soon will have canal income.

Social Harmony: Strikes may happen, but the country is in a status of panic after event 4#.

Immigration: European, Chinese, Jewish, and Slavic immigrants are coming in larger numbers. Some are calling for a literacy test. 

Mood of the people: The mood of the people is modest, except for some wage workers and farmers. Much of this feeling awaits your decision.

Party Power: Conservatives have the speaker of the house, while Progress has the senate leadership, according to their deal. Progress has grown ballot support, while Liberals are getting weaker.

Events and Decisions for March 1905 - March 1909 for Pres. Rothschild @Hestia11

1) The Rise of Automotives

Over the past few years, automotives have been becoming more and more mainstream, as they have been rapidly decreasing in price. As Europe was embroiled in war, they didn't jumpstart their automotive industry, leaving space open for American industries to grow. A man by the name of Denny Gord, founder of Gord automotives, comes to the whitehouse and offers to discuss automotive policies with you. Will you accept his offer to discuss automotive practices, or do you wish to not worry about automotives?

2) Panama Canal Business

With the Canal more or less complete, official administration of future spending ends this year. The Barker administration promised to use these funds to pay off Farmer's debts. Will you fulfill this promise, or drop this fund altogether and put it back into the budget?

3) Panama Canal Blockades

Military advisers discuss with you the opportunity to close off the canal to community France and socialist Italy. France has a lot to lose, while Italy has little to lose, since France has pacific colonies.

4) Great Illinois Fire Riot

Fueled by the electoral gain in Round 1 of the election, some anti-government socialist protesters gathered near a subsidized arms factory, and decided to form a wall around the factory, trapping the workers inside. As they formed a wall, the factory owners tried to call the local law enforcement to control the riot, however after many hours the protesters threw stones and torches through the factory's windows, causing a massive explosion killing all 1,352 workers and administrators inside as well as 267 protesters outside, and 17 law enforcement officers. This explosion in the arms factory caused a massive fire, which has engulfed most of downtown Illinois.

 

People are calling this the greatest non-war domestic tragedy of the century, and are protesting at the White House begging for fire safety laws, strike-breaking laws, and any other laws that would have prevented this tragedy from happening.

5) Underground Trains

Starting in New York, massive projects created by city officials have begun to be completed. As this is a new technology, many are worried about cave-ins obstructing millions of dollars of work. Will the Federal Government propose any legislation relating to underground activity?

6) Environmental Conservatism

There has been recent effort, especially in the younger generation, to preserve parts of land to be used as only limited tourist attractions. There have been previous mentions of environmental policy in regards to land zoning, but what formal law do you wish to implement regarding this?

7) French Coup Progress

In an extraordinary event, the Pro-monarchist faction deals a decisive blow to the Pro-republic forces, entering the coup into a two sided conflict between the monarchist and communist forces. However, the former republic forces are split between the two organized sides, creating weak points all throughout France. Is there any change that your administration wants to do towards this conflict? There is worry that Germany or Britain will now invade a weakened France.

9) Pacific Expansion

10) Western Border Trouble

1. Yes, absolutely meet with this man to try and get the automotive industry to flourish here in America. Hopefully it can help our economy!

2. A promise is a promise. We will pay off the farmers debts with this fund.

3. We will blockade France but not Italy. All other countries can freely trade through the Canal.

4. This is a tragedy. President Rothschild delivers a speech memorializing the brave workers that have passed and the amazing first responders. Striking is a part of America but violence is not. Pursue fire regulation laws and a law that gives permission for law enforcement to break up a strike that turned violent.

5. The Administration will work to propose regulations that will help the safety of these underground trains. Cave ins must be prevented.

6. We support these measures and endorse a Nationwide Park Service that will be working to ensure that these areas are conserved properly and any restoration that might be necessary. 

7. Unfortunately, the Republicans were our best hope but now they are a useless force. Send a larger number of munitions to the Monarchists so they can end this war quickly. 

8. We propose a moderate tariff on countries that have left our free trade agreements and a high tariff on Italy, but begin trading with them.

9. In exchange for munitions going to the Monarchists exclusively we ask for the most coveted islands in the Pacific (don’t know what their names are currently)

10. Propose talks with Canada that could settle this. Ask if Americans could freely travel along a trail that leads to Alaska.
