President requested a meeting regarding the invasion of French Polynesia to annex it under the approval of the Monarchists.

The Speaker is apprehensive but America should not back out of World Affairs. My main concern is the ability of our military to procure a substantive victory. What do our military advusors and officials remark of the current state of our Armed Forces regarding this proposed invasion.

@Reagan04 We have an active military of 60k and 58 ships, which is more than enough to take islands no real soldiers are defending.

Okay, as it seems only light defenses are on the islands, President Rothschild orders the seizing of the islands, but seeks no formal declaration of war.

"We should not be annexing territory from other nations without the consent of the governments of those nations and without the consent of the people of the territory as we risk turning into an empire like the one we fought so hard to gain our independence from in the Revolutionary War and it also sets a dangerous precedence which countries can use to their advantage in the future" - Labor Party Spokesperson.

Rep. Aric Madison of PA-04 wins a midterm election for the post of Senator. His victory is celebrated as a brief sign of happiness for a party that's been stuck in Executive Power but not in Legislative.

With Liberal and Conservative Support, the Islands of French Polynesia are taken. The Communist French Government denounces the Act, but do not declare war.

 

A state of the union will be posted later tonight.

State of the Union for Election of 1908
 

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

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. We are currently occupying French Polynesia.

Foreign Affairs: We are currently heavily arming pro-monarchist forces in France. The communists have gained ground, but likely only due to armed ex-Republicans joining them. This will most likely switch once our arms shipments get circulated.

Military: Our military is semi-active. Our navy patrols our naval bases, and a small portion of our navy and army are occupying French Polynesia.

Economy: The economy is continuing 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 falling among third world nations, however Britain and Germany have recently been buying many shipments of Arms from American manufacturers, as well as Automobiles.

Budget: Our budget is slightly increasing because of tariff revenue and canal revenue.

Social Harmony: The country is in a small state of unity, however socialist and labor wage workers are angry, however this only impacts 6% of wage workers.

Immigration: We have reached an enormous immigration boom, especially many Republican French immigrants.

Mood of the people: The mood of the people is satisfied.

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. 

I will start doing midterms so that this value changes between a term.

Popularity of the Incumbent: The president has grown much more popular, no longer being named a lame duck. However, term fatigue is setting in. Regardless, chances of the Liberals taking office are high.

Party:

Resident state: 

VP nominee: 

Platform (see State of the Union):

Speaker John Rodgers (C-TX) announces his final bid for President

63 years old

Sen. Ted Hillsbury (C-IN)

National Strength: President Rothschild's history of economic growth is truly rather anemic, the fact that we are still 6th is representative of a failed Liberal policies. We need a new voice, it's time to take Conservative Congressional strength and put it in the White House, my friends, we have demonstrated real Leadership abilities here in Congress, it's time the nation project that Strength across the Government.

Military Strength and Foreign Affairs: I am proud to have spearheaded the invasion of French Polynesia through Congress, I am committed to taking a tougher stand against not only Communist France, but taking a hard line towards Socialist Italy, something that the President has unfortunately failed to do. I believe our current military force suffices and we should use our control of the Panama Canal to our eminent benefit.

Economy: We need to finish the denationalization job! The best way for our economy to grow is through the stable tariff which currently supports the Northeast, low taxes across the board putting money into the pockets of all Americans, and removing government held monopolies which threaten the Free Market principles upon which we were founded. I believe the automobile industry has the potential to be a great American golden goose.

Trade: Ramp up trade with Europe and continue to use those relations to put pressure on Communist France and Socialist Italy. Germany and Britain can hopefully subsist together with us to bring a united front of Freedom to the 1st world.

Budget: The Conservatives have long stood for budget reduction and along with that a balanced budget, our tariffs are stable as of now and we should continue to enjoy the economic prosperity as well as progress towards a balanced budget that brings, we should focus on cutting a lot of spending, much of which should come in the form of denationalization.

Social Harmony: We need to be prosecuting the radicals which set Chicago ablaze and discouraging Radical and UnAmerican ideals as Fascism, Socialism, and Communism.

Immigration: We may use these Republican immigrants as a boost to our economy but let's remember how important it is that we vet each immigrant thoroughly for extremist ideals, such as those listed above, and that literacy tests be strictly employed. 

Mood of the People: We want the people to be more than just satisfied, we want them to have a proud and strong America, we don't want a complacent America, such a nation is one that falls easily to its own foibles, rather a strong and proud nation is required in this time and all time to procure a prosperous future. The Conservative way is the American way and it's time that we had a government that had the time and support to make those changes.

Popularity of the Incumbent: As the Incumbent is not running, we will limit attacks on him, rather levying the majority of them on a faceless Liberal Party that has grown out of touch having governed for so long and produced only mild results. We will run, however, a mostly positive campaign extolling the virtues of the "Champion of the Middle Class and the Small Business Owner" in Speaker Rodgers, a future of a strong and proud America, not afraid to back down in the face of all that opposes her.

Platform (see State of the Union):

Name and office: Samuel Quincy (Senator in Massachusetts)

Age: 45

Party: Liberal

Resident state: Massachusetts 

VP nominee: Sen. Rita Meeks (L-NC) (White Woman)

Platform (see State of the Union):

National Strength: The past administration has caused us to grow and expand our strength and output, which is what we will continue doing. We will continue to work just as hard as they did if I am elected.

Military Strength: This was a good foresight to take over Polynesia. We need to remain vigilant in our defense and use these islands to increase revenue back here in the States. 

Foreign Affairs: We were forced to take action to help the Monarchists because of fears of a Communist takeover. We will continue on this front and hope that they will get the job done quickly. Quietly, we should ask the Monarchists what they are willing to give back in exchange for our high levels of support that we have given them.

Military: Continue here, no more military adventurism is needed, but these islands will be profitable for our United States. This is good for our revenue and should be able to continue at this level of military for a while now.

Economy: Liberals can claim victory on the Economy, as we were responsible for the implementation of the tariffs and we were the strong supporters of bimetallism. We have won a resounding victory on the economy, and this should be at the forefront of our campaigning. Tariffs will be maintained and adjusted with time, and the bimetallism is still a staple of our campaign.

Trade: Grow trade as much as we can, trade inevitably helps our economy. Raise the tariffs just slightly on Germany, hoping to gain what little extra profit we can from that. 

Budget: A Liberal economy was the first in a while to actually grow the budget, which should be celebrated as a victory. Our budget is expanding, and so is American work around the globe.

Social Harmony: Really, we should celebrate what we have. Conservatives and Liberals have been working the best together, really, in the past few years. Socialists and Laborites are not really our concern, and we feel we should blunt them in Congress to the best of our ability. The Liberal Party of America is center-left and we will remain that way for as long as we can see.

Immigration: We are a bit wary of the high-levels of French immigrants coming in, there could be more communists coming through. Cut the French immigration totals hopefully, we always need to be vigilant. British and German immigrants are encouraged, however. 

Mood of the people: Not much to say here other than another Liberal victory.

Party Power: Liberals really have been in Executive power for far too long, and we acknowledge that in our inner circles. We may need years in opposition rather than in power, but we must keep at least trying to win as best we can. 

@Kingthero I like the idea of midterms, seems cool!

Popularity of the Incumbent: We thank the President for his endorsement and his seeking of a better America and a better Liberal Party. We try to hitch our wagon as close to the President as we can, as his approval ratings have gone up closer to Election Day.

Name and office: Sen. Arty J. Talbot

Age: 50

Party: Conservative

Resident state: New York

VP nominee: John Rodgers of TX if he runs, would serve as VP 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 lot of job opportunities and employment leads to happiness. We must fight for 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. American interests must be put first

Foreign Affairs: Continue to arm anti-communists decisively. 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 a competitive ideology in our wonderful country. 

Military: Same as above. 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. Set up talks with the Third world to address the problems, why we are falling down there.

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: The Conservative Party represents all interests, whether you are the employer or the employee. We cannot ignore the interests of the backbone of our nation. 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. People need to be represented in a proper way. 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.

I forgot to say, but Oklahoma is now a State

1908 Election

Welcome to the election of 1908! We have yet again a very interesting race. Both the Liberals and Conservatives have a strong candidate, while the Socialists have a merger candidate and Progress has a controversial candidate. Early polling shows that the Liberals will take this election, especially since typically Conservative States are experiencing growing economies and don't want much more policy touching their growing economy. Socialists are stronger in unification, but weaker in getting out the vote. Progress might fail to get many States due to controversial policies with its constituents.

Primaries

The only significant primary this time around was in the Conservative Party between John Rodgers and Arty J. Talbot, yet again. Rodgers comes in at a disadvantage, knowing that he lost the last election, however both candidates provided strong platforms with variation. Talbot was favored to win due to his northern-eastern support, but by shocking luck Rodgers took most of Talbot's strongholds for victory. Rodgers really appealed to the West and the South, while Talbot was most appealing to the north and northeast.

 

Talbot: 42.7%

 

Rodgers: 57.3%

 

The newspapers were yet again predicting a Talbot victory, but Rodgers agenda appealed to just the right amount of people.

 

RP Note: Talbot was destined to win, however Rodgers really pulled through on the States that mattered most.

 

General Election Round 1

Quincy/Meeks (Lib) 203 EV 40% PV [WA, MT, WY, CO, SD, IA, MO, MS, AL, GA, SC, TN, NC, VA, OH, NY, CT, NH]

Rodgers/Hillsbury (Con) 179 EV 35% PV [CA, MN, WI, AR, LA, FL, KY, IN, WV, MD, DE, PA, RI, MA, VT, ME, NJ]

Dodge/Folette (Pro) 74 EV 20% PV [OR, NV, ID, UT, ND, NE, KS, OK, TX, MI]

Smith/Scott (Soc) 27 EV 5% PV [IL]

 

RP Note: Progress faltered due to its controversial issues, however this did lead them to win Texas back... Liberals were on their way to winning the first round, however Rodger's push for a strong tariff against Quincy's German tariff threw off a lot of support in the Northeast. Socialists pulled yet another surprise victory in Illinois.

General Election Round 2

(Lib) 216 EV 52% PV [Gains all Progress except OR, OK, TX, MI; loses MO]

(Con) 267 EV 48% PV [Gains OR, OK, TX, MI, IL; gains MO]

RP Note: The key issue this campaign ended up being tariffs, as there was no strong anti-tariff force, and the candidate stronger on tariffs attracted a lot more voters, especially in the Northeast. In what should have been a first round victory for the Liberals has turned into an electoral loss. Another issue that was important was the strength against radicals, which is what led to the decisive IL going to the conservatives.

Congress

Conservatives 40% Senate 35% US Rep

Progress 25% Senate 20% US Rep

Liberal 35% Senate 35% US Rep

Socialists 0% Senate 10% US Rep

RP Note: Conservative momentum fades in the Senate and House, but Progress and Conservatives do hold a slim majority. Pro-military members also hold a supermajority in both houses. The Liberal Party is no longer shattered though, and has grown. Socialists may have a lot of reps, but their support can fall at a minute's notice.
