gopprogressive Posted May 22, 2009 Share Posted May 22, 2009 Ayati Parliament Election 2009 I'll get working on this as soon as I finish a couple projects currently on my plate. Feel free to come up with party leaders or cabinet members and post 'em here. Religion: Hinduism 60% Islam 12% Christianity 10% Sikhism 8% Jainism 4% Buddhism 4% None 2%Population of 525,000,000 Political Parties: Ayati Peoples' Congress (37%)- liberal ruling party Ayati National Alliance (35%)- conservative opposition New Center (12%)- peasant, agragarian party Communist Party (8%)- Communist and left-wing revolutionaries Labour Party (4%)- moderate socialist party Muslim League (4%)- Muslim party that is front for Taliban-like guerillas The Ayati People's Congress has been in power since 1997. Ayati became independent from New Brittanian rule in 1997 after an independence referendum and a separation referendum from Hindustan and Baluchistan. It is dealing with Communist trade union strikes in the industrial cities, and a Muslim revolt in the west coupled with a difficult peace process with Baluchistan. Provinces: Agra Bangalore Benares Gwalior Hyderabad Industan Jodhpur Kalastan Malabar Mysore Nagpur Orissa Travancore United Kerala Vindhya Issues Agriculture Armed Forces Commonwealth Communism Drug Trade Economic Development Environment Federalism Gun Control Labour Unions Nationalisation Peace Process Piracy Poverty Religious Rights Tax and Spend Terrorism Vice Laws @issue position descriptions// left to right, 1 - 5 //Agriculture Abolish all farm subsidies immediately. Reduce farming subsidies gradually until completely private. Reform subsidy programs to benefit family farmers. Provide tax relief and increased subsidies for agriculture. Massive subsidies and protectionism to save the family farm. @ //Armed Forces Abolish most of the Armed Forces and replace with a Ministry of Peace. Reduce defense spending and introduce reforms to protect human rights. Improve civilian control of military and more accountable defense funding. Increase funding for the Armed Forces. Enhanced discipline and training. Replace police with military troops. Bring generals into government. @ //Commonwealth The Commonwealth is a legacy of Brittanian imperialism. Exit the Commonwealth and establish an elected President. Remain in the Commonwealth, but elect our own Executive. Preserve Commonwealth membership. Stronger ties to New Brittania. Independence was a mistake. Seek to rejoin New Brittanian empire. @ //Drug Trade Legalise and regulate all drugs. Promote recreational use. Focus on "harm reduction" measures, legalize cannabis. Provide rehabilitation for addicts, crack down on dealers. Toughen laws for illegal drugs, increase enforcement. Ayati needs a war on drugs. Death penalty for dealers. @ //Economic Development Ayati needs an "Alternative Economic Strategy" of a planned economy. Focus on development of industry through protective tariffs. Promote sustainable development and a "green" diversified economy. Pursue economic development through free trade and open markets. Supply-side economic policies will bring about economic prosperity. @ //Environment The environment comes first. Implement eco-taxes on pollution. Protect the environment. Reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Support incentives for clean energy and pollution prevention. Open to environmentalism, but not an important issue right now. Relax environmental standards. The economy comes first. @ //Federalism Significantly increase federal control. Reduce Regional authority. Regions have their rights but the federal government is superior. Keep federal and regional powers as they are. Devolve more autonomous powers to the regions. Fully autonomous provinces. Allow for separation. @ //Foreign Relations Join the Communist Bloc. Crush the capitalist and imperialist West! Improve ties to the Communist Bloc. Stand up to Western imperialism. Maintain Ayati's non-aligned status and neutrality in foreign affairs. Pursue greater economic ties to the West. Support Anti-Communist Alliance. Stand with the West against Communism. Crush domestic Communist groups. @ //Gun Control Ban all firearms, except hunting rifles but regulate those. Close loopholes, ban cop-killer bullets, require trigger locks. Only enforce laws currently on the books. Scrap the gun registry. Stiffen penalties on gun crimes. No gun control. Lift restrictions on automatic weapons. @ //Labour Unions Mandate closed shop agreements for every worker. Limit manager pay. Unions are good for our economy. Protect and strengthen union rights. Try to legislate a balance between unions and management. Unions have far too much power. Relax dismissal protections. Unions should be outlawed. Severely curtail the right to strike. @ //Nationalisation Support large-scale nationalization to take over all industries. Extend nationalization to water, transport, and manufacturing. Improve productivity and efficiency in public industries. More competition in markets. Support privatization of industry. Privatize all industries. National ownership is intrinsically bad. @ //Peace Process Industan is a Muslim land, return it to Baluchistan. Improve peace process with greater concessions and accomodation. Maintain peace process, but fight to end Muslim terrorism. Industan rightfully belongs to Ayati. No more peace process. Industan is sacred Hindu soil. Expel the Muslims. @ //Piracy Piracy is just a form of resistance to Imperialism. Negotiate with the Pirates to secure release of hostages. Support an international military mission against Piracy. Increase naval presence to counter the Pirate threat. Launch an all-out military offensive against Piracy. @ //Poverty Ayati needs a univeral basic income coupled with a War on Poverty. Increase welfare payments, raise minimum wage, and more public housing. Extend unemployment and family benefits. Improve education. Lower taxes to ease poverty along with a "welfare to work" program. Abolish all social welfare programs. Don't waste money on the lazy. @ //Religious Rights Allow full autonomy and special rights for Muslims. Oppose Hindu intolerance. Maintain state secularism. Oppose Hindutva, greater rights for non-Hindus. Respect all major faiths, improve religious unity to combat extremism. Support Hindutva, protect Hindu interests and a uniform civil code. Make Hinduism the State Religion. Expel threats to our Hindu character. @ //Tax Reform Support a "Wealth tax" on the rich and a Carbon Tax. The 2008 Tax increases are necessary to balance the budget. Bring back the 10p Tax Rate and cut the VAT Rate by 3%. Abolish the Property Tax and reduce Income and Corporate tax rates. Abolish the estate tax, and shift taxes from income to consumption. @ //Terrorism Seek to combat the root causes of Terrorism. Repeal Islamophobic laws. Repeal the PTA. Combat terrorism without compromising civil liberties. Review current security measures but focus on defeating terrorist groups. Keep the 180-day detention period for terror suspects and greater police powers. The Prevention of Terrorist Activities Act doesn't go far enough. @ //Vice Laws Abolish outdated vice laws. Full equal rights for homosexuals. Set up "red light districts." Legalise homosexual relations. Allow Matka. Severe Fines for those who violate vice laws. Crack down on prostitution, sexual deviancy, and illegal gambling. Support public executions of the decadent purveyors of vice. @ @end 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
