New Historical President RP

Recommended Posts

1956 Election

Welcome to the election of 1956! This election, the Nation is united together in absolute gloom. All anybody cares about are the War, the Economy, and Trade. If any of those things go wrong, then the country might be doomed in a tailspin. The future of the War looks gloomy, but in this eerie world, a strong leader must emerge.

 

Primaries

There were so significant primaries.

 

General Election Round 1

 

Cruz/Reynolds (Con) 274 EV 43% PV [ME, NH, MA, OH, IL, WI, MI, IN, CA, WA, NM, AR, MO, WV, VA, NV, ID, CO, ND, NE, AK, MN, NJ, DE, FL]

Harris/Ford (Lib) 207 EV 30% PV [CT, NY, OR, AZ, OK, TX, LA, KY, MD, MS, AL, NC, MT, UT, SD, CU, PR, IA]

Kefauver/Hoopes (Soc) 73 EV 20% PV [VT, RI, PA, GA, TN, WY, KS]

Natesh/Salvador (Libt) 11 EV 7% PV [SC, HI]

 

Note: Conservatives are in the lead, but the runoff is predicted to be another super close race.

 

General Election Round 2

 

Cruz/Reynolds (Con) 291 EV 52% PV [ME, NH, VT, MA, OH, IL, WI, MI, IN, CA, WA, NM, AR, MO, WV, VA, TN, NV, ID, WY, CO, ND, NE, AK, MN, NJ, DE, FL]

Harris/Ford (Lib) 274 EV 48% PV [RI, CT, NY, PA, OR, AZ, OK, TX, LA, KY, MD, MS, AL, GA, SC, NC, MT, UT, SD, KS, HI, CU, PR, IA]

 

Note: Another close election, as elections usually are with a united America.

Would you mind telling us how this new event way will happen?

 

Liberals celebrate their success and pledge to work with Conservatives in the House and Senate on common sense issues.

Well, I'm just simplifying the way events are done, at least for the span of the gloomy war.

 

@Reagan04

 

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 active. Some of our military is in Pacific Bases, while others are either at home or volunteering in Europe. Our navies are having terrible planning issues.

Economy: The economy stops declining, though remains static.

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

Budget: Our budget is currently unbalanced, but it has no debt. Our budget consists of the income of 40% taxes 50% tariff , and 10% overseas territories/canals, and the expenditure of 70% military 15% gov. upkeep 20% infrastructure and 5% deficit growth. (SD: 15)

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

Immigration: Immigration levels decline more.

Mood of the people: People are beginning to prepare for a doomsday scenario, both militarily and economically.

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

President Popularity: The President is average with a 49% approval rating, however a 33% disapproval rating.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Year 1957

 

 

Trade Events

 

Status: Increased trade, especially with military goods, with our allies. Virtually no trade with Russia and China. Slightly increased trade with the American continents that are not our immediate allies. Limited trade with African countries (breakup of Africa has not happened). Trade with Japan and allied Asian remnants is about average, with military goods as priority.

 

Event 1: Military advisers are warning that our trade with Africa is putting a severe risk on our trade escorts, knowing that that area of water is our weakest point. Should we abandon African trade, and instead focus more on other trade routes?

 

Event 2: European allies are requesting we focus more trade on them than our own two continents, in order to best prepare for the war.

 

Economic Events

 

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

 

Event 1: Our farmers make enough food for our country, though not enough to export to everyone. Should we enforce agricultural focuses to only export to certain countries, therefore limiting free trade?

 

Event 2: The military factories are still majority in the North, though Southern industries do have some military productions. Should we focus on building more military factories in different regions, or should we just leave it at the status quo?

 

War Events

 

Status: 16,000 in Ottoman defense, 32,000 in Germany/Scandinavia in terms of American involvement.

 

Ottoman defense: The southern front remains un-moved. The Russians carried out a surprise marine tactic in the Tuz Golu lake, capturing the lake and creating outposts on the western outskirts. They hold the western front.

Event 1: Following the surprise Russian tactic, very limited forces are on the pink line. If we move American forces, then we might weaken the rest of the line. Shall we deploy more volunteers to the new breach? We currently have 32,000 available for deployment.

 

Event 2: Some lawmakers in Congress are saying we should work with our allies to formally declare war; however, military advisers say we are not ready, and we would not be able to use our defense army.

 

Event 3: Utilize this event to focus on undiscovered technologies, army size, etc.

The Libertarians congratulate the President-Elect, and pledge that they will try very hard to work in bipartisan unison in the House with Democrats, Soc. Lab. politicians, and Conservatives alike. Natesh was to be elected to the House after losing in round 1, aswell as Salvador.

IC: The Libertarians have chosen to take a more, hawkish stance on Military, and on certain things take a more libertarian "John Turner" stance.

Liberals propose a new bill in Congress - to tie ourselves to our European allies. If one is declared war on, Congress is bound to vote on a declaration of war on those that were attacked. They hope that it will be voted in the coming weeks. They call on the President to ask the American Alliance to follow suit in their own countries.

The Libertarians denounce the bill for one soul reason: It doesn't give choice. What if they are being attacked because they commit things like war crimes, or crimes against humanity? What if they are declared war on for good reason? This bill is not in any american interests, unless you want us to take attention off of fighting off the real enemies, Russia and China, and make sure they don't attack ANYONE, ally or not.

The Socialist Labor Party concurs with this sentiment.

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.

Just "amend"  the bill to say that if our European allies are attacked unprovoked, or actions are taken by foreign powers that threaten national security we would be compelled to respond. If countries are suspected of human rights violations or provoking a conflict, the United States reserves the right to judge the situation accordingly. (I haven't read this whole thread but is there a "NATO" like alliance in this RP?)  

 

PS: don't post on the forums really, just lurk but I had nothing better to do.

Cruz dies of a Heart Attack, Reynolds takes over!

 

Prepare for a President based on probability.

 

Trade Events

 

Status: Increased trade, especially with military goods, with our allies. Virtually no trade with Russia and China. Slightly increased trade with the American continents that are not our immediate allies. Limited trade with African countries (breakup of Africa has not happened). Trade with Japan and allied Asian remnants is about average, with military goods as priority.

 

Event 1: We are going to abandon non-essential trade with all African countries that are not within our safe north african-european sphere.

 

Event 2: We will focus more on European trade, but we won't neglect our southern neighbors.

 

Economic Events

 

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

 

Event 1: We are not going to regulate what our farmers do just because food may be needed by our allies. Free trade is a necessity.

 

Event 2: We are going to highly recommend industries be set up on the West coast as well, since we have a pacific front that needs military supplies!

 

War Events

 

Status: 16,000 in Ottoman defense, 32,000 in Germany/Scandinavia in terms of American involvement.

 

Ottoman defense: The southern front remains un-moved. The Russians carried out a surprise marine tactic in the Tuz Golu lake, capturing the lake and creating outposts on the western outskirts. They hold the western front.

image.png.26b8ca3ed1e2db2893e109ae3984b33a.png

 

Event 1: I am going to deploy the rest of our army, 32,000, to the pink line. We plan on encircling them against the lake, taking prisoners and crippling their armies.

 

Event 2: We must not declare war, as we are not ready for such war.

 

Event 3: Heavily invest in bomb research, creating more powerful bombs is a must to win the war.

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.

 

No events.

 

Economic Events

 

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

 

No events.

 

War Events

 

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

 

Ottoman defense: The southern front has shifted slightly. The Russians have held the Tuz Golu lake, capturing the lake and creating outposts on the western outskirts. The Russians were pushed back towards Samsun.

 

image.png.15939dccd5e90f822be4ce8f59f96516.png

Event 1: With our concentration of men near Tuz Golu, what shall our next move be?

 

Event 2: While we have pushed towards Samsun, we lack the troops to siege the city. How will we get more troops, or will we just hold our ground?

 

Midterms

 

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 in response to expanded trade and war.

Trade: Trade grows 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 become minuscule.

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

Elections will likely be called soon, I try to give myself some time between years so I can still be somewhat original and not rush the presidency.
