Sadly Japan did not hear our voices of good will.

That is a very good but I did not ask for that solely. What I wanted to inquire is the probability that we could have additional Conservative territory here, so basically how the people are supposed to vote. I understand, however, if this information cannot be estimated. As a Conservative President I cannot risk my party stumbling into turmoil through this decision and if Cuba does not hold Conservative potential I endorse them remaining a U.S. territory.

Cuba will likely be lean Conservative.

It is a good sign that we could finally retake the island but it is sad to hear that we lost many brave soldiers. The President himself will take the time to address personal letters of condolences to the families of these brave men. We will point out that we are sad about the losses but these men died while defending Democracy and security. We instruct our advisory board to create the "Light of Democracy"-Medal to be awarded to the families who have to cope with deaths of their beloved ones.

At first we will guard the island to eliminate potential uprisings but we instruct the local leaders who remained loyal to the US to prepare a referendum (become a US state/remain a territory/other) from which we will see the opportunities and the preferred status of the people of Puerto Rico. The  referendum should be not binding and we will determine their status after a time of consideration.

Analysts have also prepared electoral notes of Puerto Rico

 

Puerto Rico will be worth around 8 electoral votes, and will be Conservative.

 

Currently, they support remaining a territory.

As commander in chief I intend to launch Operation Awakening, a plan consisting of two phases which concludes in a large-scale amphibious attack on Japan's main lands. This plan is intended to capture first the southern part of the southernmost main Japanese island, Kyūshū, as well as capturing the islands of Okinawa to be used as a staging area. This part of the Operation shall be called Operation Lightening. Later our Army will invade the Kantō Plain, near Tokyo, on the Japanese island of Honshu known as Operation Thunderbolt. Airbases on Kyūshū captured in Operation Lightening would allow land-based air support for Operation Thunderbolt. The small outposts on our territories of the Philippines and on Dutch Indonesia will have fallen long ago. Once we liberated Tokyo we will get to liberate the Korean peninsula which only fell to Japan due to their aggressive foreign policies. This was never allowed to happen. 

To start off, the Chinese co-operate an invasion with us and will invade the Korean Peninsula, and will work with us to establish a Government there in the future.

 

We have begun to roll out planes for warfare, but not at a massive rate. They have proven effective at scouting enemy locations before ambitious landings.

 

Operation Lightning has failed its first attempt, with basically the whole U.S. navy supporting 50,000 troops against 30,000 Japanese. We lost around 5,000 troops while the Japanese lost only 2,000.

 

A small 5,000 group of U.S. soldiers got completely wiped out trying to capture the islands of Okinawa by a tsunami.

 

Your military later attempted Operation Thunderbolt, with a fully-recovered 40,000 troops and basically the whole navy. This operation was also a failure, with 12,000 U.S soldiers dying and only 1,000 Japanese dying from their force of 20,000.

 

The naval front was much more of a success, sinking a majority of Japanese ships and making the rest weak enough where they can not obstruct naval landings. This allows the Dutch to recapture their islands.

 

However, once recapturing their islands, the Dutch refused to help us.

 

The French, in a surprise move, have decided to help us out by re-capturing all outposts outside of Japan that they owned, with minimal casualties. They have officially entered the war on our side, citing that our crucial help in their revolution is enough to utilize French lives to protect American interests. They have sent a force of 40,000 men to co-operate with American generals on future invasion plans.

 

China has made some progress into the Korean peninsula.

 

OVERALL STATUS OF THE WAR: American-French-Chinese side is winning, however with high American casualties (22,000 so far).

 

SOLDIER STATUS:

 

Active- 38,000 (28,000 in the Pacific Front and 10,000 protecting bases and in Puerto Rico)

Reserve- 120,000 (Are now ready to be deployed, President needs to order how many will join the front.)

Navy: 50 ships.

 

WAR POPULARITY:

 

While the casualty number has hurt a small percentage of war supporters, the patriotic response to an attempted assassination and defensive war, along with the French joining the war adding much more optimism, plus the various victories outside our main operations, has made the war popular among ~85% of Americans.

 

CONGRESS

 

PONAFA Act

Quote

Order a surveillance bill of Japanese immigrants living already in this country. If they are still loyal to the Japanese government and support their action against our country we will have to intern them under the Protect Our Nation Against Foreign Aggressions (PONAFA)-Act.

 

BUDGETING

 

The war has not ruined the budget yet, as we have not had to mobilize our country beyond mobilizing our manpower. We are basically pretty balanced and just not paying debt payments at this moment.

 

MIDTERMS

 

These will commence after the President's next actions and @Reagan04 's push.

 

RP NOTE

 

As a RP gamemaster I must say this war is the most awesome thing that has happened before, and I am truly happy to see all the effort and communication behind it.

Vice President Hillsbury and Senate Majority Leader Trebuano put their use of Patriotic themes to the ultimate test this midterm in order to bolster Conservative support as they embark on a whistle-stop tour across the nation to embolden Conservative Congressional margins at President Talbot's behest

This midterm should be above politics for the Conservative Party. If anything is true, the Conservative Party wins by a landslide if politics remains to the sideline and instead unbridled patriotism is embraced. This is the type of messaging that Vice President Hillsbury has been perfecting over his career and he and Senator Trebuano have become the masters of this strategy.

The top-ticket item is a simple no-brainer. We must keep the national dialogue focused on the war. It is imperative that we use the war's 85% approval rating to our advantage, again, use these bipartisan achievements that the President has accomplished and even the Liberals can't attack. Politically, this means Vote Conservative, vote for the Troops or Vote Conservative, Vote for Strength/Stability. The Socialist model has begun to fail and its leaders will soon be irrelevant, we will reap the possible rewards of this, as the Liberal candidates begin to appeal to urban socialist districts, we in turn march right in and take back the suburban districts in which the Liberals gained their House edge. Our goal should be to tie together one resounding message of American Pride into a banner that all but the farthest left and deepest urban socialists can back. But, a platform based solely on war shan't win us this grand coalition. T'is true as Conservative bigwigs, mostly white men run around preaching the benefits of Patriotism and the success of our boys and the expanse of our American values, the diverse members of our Party must enthusiastically preach those values to the general electorate. Senator Trebuano, a white woman, and Vice President Hillsbury, a Black Man, will extol the virtues of American Opportunity. We will launch a new war on Communist and Socialist agitators, not some sort of physical domestic crusade, but rather prosecute these ideals mercilessly in the court of public opinion. And while the Liberals scramble to take the Left-wing which grows more and more disillusioned with the incendiary and anti-American words of the Socialist Party, we begin to swoop in for Lower Middle Class and even Working Class voters. We take a hard line on growth and opportunity, more importantly, we take a hard line on how all Americans are meant to reach this goal. As they support the war but may be wary of our domestic agenda, we show them the Conservative politicians such as Leader Trebuano, Governor Franklin, and Vice President Hillsbury who have risen through this uniquely American Prosperity to conquer the American Dream and now wish to conquer it for the rest of the nation. We leave the people with these final ideas, Capitalism, Constitutionalism, Patriotism, and yes, even Faith, are tenets of the Conservative Platform. We stand against radicalism, we stand for the protection of our values at home and abroad and we stand for the economic liberty so endowed by our Creator as enumerated by our Founders. Let the people see the truth of Conservative Leadership, let President Talbot and his leadership team inspire hope into a nation which has not only yearned to breath free but to breath that freedom, the life of nations, the world over. Let a fiercely patriotic and independent people self-determine their futures and never let the oppression of foreign agents nor domestic tyranny stand in their way. This is our ultimate theme, defending the people's liberty, values, and opportunity through strength abroad, and integrity at home.

The Socialist Labor Party releases a small manifesto that its Reps and Senators will follow if they are elected which will help veterans once the war is over:

establish a universal health care system and a social security system; institute a national living wage; establish a Bureau of Veterans Affairs which will resolve issues regarding compensation following service; provide military pensions; provide assistance with housing; assistance with obtaining post-service employment; arrange for burials in cemeteries designated for veterans; create a state pension; also establish a universal mental health care system; build tens of thousands of new houses; reconstitute abandoned and vacant buildings into housing facilities and other types of accommodation; the creation of remembrance day to remember the American and American Allies troops lost in all wars.   

 

The Socialist Labor Party will still be pushing for the things proposed in our most recent Presidential Platform and the Platform of Laurence Thomas

I always believed that it is our duty to put our nation at the top and I strongly believe that people who are willing to stand at our side should get advantages of being part of the American dream. Saying that I endorse both Cuba and Puerto Rico becoming a US state by the end of my term. Until that time we will start to build up their infrastructure and their local industries more and more. Of course this has to be determined by the Congress and I hope my fellow Conservatives and first and foremost my fellow Americans will also see the potential by admitting these regions into our Union.

First of all the President thanks the Chinese and French for supporting our efforts. They will remain our allies for a long time as the situation is now and this will be known as the Alliance of Friends.

Seeing the Netherlands not helping us at all is sad, but currently we have other jobs to do. Despite I always trusted our boys we have failed to capture the regions I thought to be essential for the Japanese war efforts. However, we will continue working on achieving a quick victory here. I order my military advisers to create the "Protector of the Free World-Medal" in order to honor soldiers who did remarkable things during this horrible war against the Japanese which was thrust upon us.

Since we made good effort on the naval front I expect our Army to get a victory in another attempt. Therefore we will together with the French reinforcements launch another full-scale attack until we capture what we need to make the Japanese surrender quickly. Order our newly constructed planes to drop propaganda leaflets denouncing the Japanese aggression and hopefully the people will wake up and no longer support their government. Remind them that the longer they support their shady and treasonous leader the more they will suffer and this surely includes the civilian population as well.

I also order at least 50.000 men from the reserve to support our troops in combat, if Congress backs this move.

It is also good to hear that we are living in a patriotic atmosphere and have high support for defending ourselves and the free world.

As a RP gamemaster I must say this war is the most awesome thing that has happened before, and I am truly happy to see all the effort and communication behind it.

Sadly our troops alone will not be able to get the victory I hoped for, so we will have to bite the bullet while mobilizing our reserves to risk an unbalanced budget. I hope my financial experts are able to hold costs low.

OOC: Me too, that is a very exciting episode of our RP and I am proud to deliver strong responses. I also love to see how others are committed to this right now.

PONAFA ACT- Liberals visit the White House to tell the President they intend to vote down the measure. They would be willing to come to a compromise which would give the same authority, but reasonable doubt must be presented to a responsible board in order for someone to conduct surveillance. In other words, proof must be first presented before they are under surveillance.

MIDTERM LIBERAL STRATEGY

Liberals will not hit the Conservative Party on the war at all. Instead they highlight how the Liberal Party has been conducting jointly with the Conservatives in Congress to continue this war in a bipartisan manner. Despite what the VP says, both parties fiercely support America, and the war would not change if Liberals would be in charge of Congress. We encourage our candidates to hold a wide spectrum of issues, and will not hold them in contempt if they stray from the party dogma. Our more left-leaning supporters will run in Socialist districts, while our more centrist politicians will run in Conservative districts. We focus on a positive, economic message for the midterms. The current administration has the job of multitasking as the incumbent. However, we have seen they are unable to manage the economy in wartime. No economic packages have been offered to Congress. Liberals would bring back a focus on the American people, to try and forge new deals with other countries to bring jobs to the US. Liberals believe in America. And it's not just because we've been born here. We believe America is  best because America is good. We have shown immense bipartisanship by any standard in this term, and we will continue that. We hope the Conservatives replicate what our promise is: to include the opposition party in war details even if they are not in power. We do, however, hold them accountable for their actions with regards to Puerto Rico. Liberals have sufficient knowledge to believe they wished to remain a territory. Conservatives should respect the opinions of the Puerto Rican people and not submit their statehood until it is widely supported on the island. To be clear, we would support their candidacy if they wished to become a state. Liberal Rep. Paula Reur tells the American people of her story, rising through the ranks because America is good. For her, a woman, to become House Minority Leader, speaks to the courage of America. Regardless of party identification or ideological belief, we are all to be commended for raising America right. We have had a woman VP and two black VPs (I'm sorry if I'm off on numbers, those are the ones I know), no other country in the world could do that but us. We will triumph over the Japanese not only because of our military strength, but because America is the greatest nation on the planet.

The President is supportive of this compromise in order to show his bi-partisanship as well, but one question remains. How do we find proof without watching them closely? However, I trust our law enforcement agencies to get this job done if we authorize them all necessary options. So if we get this compromise done we are able to show Americans that we truly intend to move our nation forward.

It would be up to local law enforcement if they believed something was up, then yes. We are glad the President was willing to sign the compromise bill and announce their support in Congress

An assault of 35,000 French and 25,000 U.S. troops take a northern assault to Japan's northernmost island with their naval supremacy, and successfully establish ownership over this island. Casualties from this invasion are 2,000 French and 1,500 U.S. troops. Japan's 10,000 in the northern most island surrender.

 

A followup invasion to Japan's main island has begun, and we have officially established landfall. We have pushed fifty miles south. Japan lost 7,500 men to our 3,000 French and 3,500 U.S. 

 

Propaganda leaflets have achieved great success, as there are anti-war rebels in various cities throughout Japan.

If both Cuba and Puerto Rico back being a state, Liberals will support their accession into the United States. We celebrate our victories in the House, but worry about declining support in the Senate. Liberals begin a hunt for a candidate to challenge the President, but it isn't going well, as the President is popular and likely to win re-election.

We are very very satisfied with the progress of the war. I hope the mission will be finished before our reinforcements have arrived. Remind the Japanese people that every hour they keep on fighting prolongs the suffering of the civilians in Japan and of their wounded. Once their capital has fallen the job will be more or less finished. If their leader feel at least a little bit of compassion toward their own people they order to stop fighting this lost cause immediately.

Liberals begin a hunt for a candidate to challenge the President, but it isn't going well, as the President is popular and likely to win re-election. 

I am happy to see the statehood questions solved and I am again thankful for the bipartisan support.

When we continue to have successes in mainland Japan we will gladly help China out in Korea (they are basically helping us at the moment)

@Kingthero would you like that I turn back and play some hardcore characters (you could ask if you would like that I play a particular politician even extremist) for the RP =).

As you manage it I could be interested to come back!

I would love to see a comeback because I love having a lot of active and committed players.

OOC: You could even try the Far-Right as we have already seen the Far-left rise and Fall. I'm not fond of either but it might be interesting to give it a go.

Senate Majority Leader Trebuano whips the Conservative Delegation in favor of Puerto Rican and Cuban statehood. @Kingthero

Gov. Dave Franklin has been elected to the Senate from Kentucky and has been installed as Senate Majority Whip.

The Socialist Labor Party is centre-left to left-wing, the far-left would be actual Marxist-Leninist Communists.

Not in America my friend. Nothing Center-Left about you and Left is being generous.

That's because the Overton window has shifted so far to the right that it is not funny.

There is a lot of potential for unique angles on issues. While our America is currently socially righter than historically, our economy is similar.

What I would like to do would be: A Far-Right on economy which would become Libertarian with the time (so extreme left on society with respect of different periods and far right on economy).

What character could it be :)? A Senator? A Governor? A ruler of party of course but if we can add some spice to the RP I'm there for!

@Conservative Elector 2 thanks for the invitation!
