1972 Primary Candidate Phase

 

After having another small hiatus for everyone (I feel as though I should effectively ignore midterms in the future---seems to drain alot of people to do midterms and then a second round of legislation), it is time to do a Presidential election! Each player gets to submit 1-2 candidates, but they either must be both in the same party, or one must stand as an independent. Players will not be able to automatically nominate one of their candidates to win; they will just give the details, where the party leans, and I will do the rest.

 

This will be the most definitive player application sheet yet; right now the country is on a hill, and it is time for someone to take the downhill momentum to pull their agenda. Regions now have a purpose, as each region is basically its own entity. Based on the recent polls, this is anyone's game: will a Liberal or Conservative win the mainstream vote, will the Socialists again reverse their inevitable demise, will the Libertarians rebound, or will an Independent capture the hearts of the nation?

Mark Lens

Consevative

Male

White

Evangelical Catholic (Raised Catholic but has been considered "re-born")

Indiana

High School Biology Teacher (1951-1963)

Indiana State Delegate (1963-1965) - Governor of Indiana (1965-1973)

As the architect of the Lens Plan, I wholeheartedly support this program and run on this record in the primary as a well-known Governor. I pioneered this plan because as a teacher I found that our schools were slowly falling out of step with the values we need to instill in our children. This prompted me to run for the Indiana House and eventually Governor. My entire career, apolitical and political has been about children and giving back to our future. I think it's time we take this to D.C.

I have been proud to spearhead the fight against evolutionism in Indiana classrooms. I respect the rights of states to make their own decisions, however as President I will stand for the ratification of the Lens Plan Support Act, part of my education plan does involve creationist teaching and therefore the government should be encouraging creationism and discouraging evolutionism.

We are one of the most powerful nations on the planet, I think we can focus more on our domestic affairs and pay back large portions of our budget back to the people.

The increasing use of Marijuana, LSD, and other dangerous chemicals being pumped into our children's bodies is one of the biggest reasons I entered into the public life. We need stronger regulations on these dangerous chemicals and we need to get them off of our streets. We've done a great job in Indiana and I hope to bring that to all American families.

I don't see any particular need for the government to meddle in a system which provides great private care for millions of American people. However, I am open to a government option to be opted into  as a sort of savings account for elderly medical insurance.

Other:

-Institute socially conservative education reforms

-Defend American Family values from Socialist and Liberal attacks

-Keep American streets safe and make sure our kids are in 100% safe environments

George Anagnos

Conservative

White-ish (Dark Mediterranean complexion; Greek)

Male

Greek Orthodox

New York

New York City Police Officer (1935-1947)

New York City Councilman (1947-1954) - Mayor of New York City (1954-1959) - U.S. Senator from New York (1959-present)

It's a good idea and I personally agree with it, however I worry about the Federal Government formally endorsing it. (Has not yet spoken out on the seemingly inevitable ratification of it in his homestate of New York where Gov. Buckley has championed it)

I support the dual-education model where creationism and evolutionism are taught side by side.

We can't begin to scale down our defensive forces, I have always been a hawk on these issues and we have to remain vigilant for any threats that we may face.

As a Police Officer I put a lot of druggies and dealers behind bars, I take a pretty hardline stance on this issue as a result of seeing what that kind of impact can do to a city, even one as big and well-equipped as New York. We need a hardline federal response to embolden municipal and state governments to take out the dispensaries of Public Enemy No. 1- Drugs.

I believe in a government provided service that would cover health insurance for all elderly people.

Other:

-Institute better Intelligence Collection Reforms

-Keep the government mostly out of morality

-Keep the streets safe

View on teaching Evolution in schools:  Even if I personally oppose this, I think this is not something we politicians should decide this is up to parents beyond this wonderful country to decide.

Hello everyone!

I'm sorry if I'm interrupting anything but I just found this.

I see from the title that it's some kind of RP and I see that you post some sort of candidates.

Are they fictional? Or real? And what are the rules of this RP?

They're fictional, but almost all of them you can tell who they're being based off of, like my character Big Bill Hill, is based off of Big Bill Haywood and Joe Hill. You might want read back a few pages to get a feel for it, and I'd ask @Kingthero about the rules being as he's the game master.

If you want, its a lot of reading (but fun reading) if you want to read from page 1. Otherwise, go back about 10-15 pages to get a feel of the recent times and what's going on. Currently there are 4 parties (2 main and one medium and one small) - Conservatives, Liberals, Socialists, and Libertarians. I wouldn't say there are any hard and fast rules, except to just stay within the context of what's happening and to be polite to the other players. Fictional, as well. If you need any help any of us are definitely willing.

However if they voted like that in the RP that's fine for me

My character took New Hampshire because IRL it's widely economically moderate but progressist state while Vermont is way more social democrat.

There's even been a real project from the true current libertarians of the US to come and live in New Hampshire to make it a libertarian state.

The Libertarian movement of New York has been a big plan since the existance of the libertarians. We have slowly gained more and more ground. Last gubernatorial we got about 5% because my boy Larry Sharpe visited every single county.

Mhmmm the task seems hard how NY is on economy

But the Republicans of NY could become Libertarians as the state seems really progressist and they're already fiscally in that sence

I do remember when Hillary got booed in 2002 when she said in a public townhall for her senatorial race she opposed same sex marriage

Well it's indeed funny that Romney talks about equality when he continues to follow his mormon's beliefs in politic but try to polish them.

About Trump it's a moderate Liberal from NY who bought the Republican nomination by being politically incorrect and anti immigration. And it worked.

This is one of the less tory Republican of the history of their party.

@WVProgressive from the moment you know that libertarians are okay with a federal state while their ancestors were for confederacy (banned word due to 1861-1865 war) you see what has changed

In order to make things go faster would it be easier to do the primaries first, then allow like a short "General Election" campaign, then the General? I think something that's holding the game back is the amount of time in between elections.

The thing that holds it back is mainly midterms and stuff; I'm cutting that part out completely and will just see how it goes.
