I’ll wait to respond until all of Congress responds.

Pres. Rothschild urges the voters to vote out the Conservatives who won’t help them anyways. He urges compassion for steel workers and miners

OCC: So we just really need @Kingthero to vote on the Wealth Tax. Tariff will pass, and the nationalizing and federal minimum wage and hour laws will be filibustered into failure.

The Conservatives likewise urge voters to vote out the Liberals and the President and to show compassion for steelworkers and miners whose lives and livelihoods will be destroyed by Big Government and rights stripped by tyranny. The Conservative way is the way to benefit all people, not just the bureaucratic elites in Washington that wield all of the power under the Liberal dream. We need strong majorities to end this anti-American scheme which runs contrary to our values once and for all by allowing us to pass the Right to Business Amendment.

The President reminds voters that the Conservatives voted against better wages and livelihoods for these workers. Liberals work to help people, Conservatives work to keep their money to themselves.

We voted against these measures which would stifle wages and livelihoods, when the government imposes restrictions, it only hurts the economy and the employed those jobs see their wages decrease and standard of quality decrease, the President is right we work to keep money, but we work to keep money in the pockets of the people, not in the pockets of DC.

CONGRESS: A Tariff Bill to raise the Tariff for revenue and protection is debated in Congress. The bill also includes a very high tariff on Communist France and Socialist Italy. 

Both countries deny any part in sinking the ship

CONGRESS: Three separate bills are proposed in Congress:

1. To nationalize the steel industry to enforce an 8 hour work day and a minimum wage. 

2. To nationalize the mining industry to enforce the same. 

3. A bill avoiding nationalization, but establishing a Federal 8 hour work day and a Federal minimum wage, which must be followed in all states; therefore, all industries. 

CONGRESS: a bill establishing a moderate-sized Wealth Tax to pay for an increase in the navy, but also to establish some minimal revenue. 

The French monarchists agree to take arms as a means of the US helping in a coup. Guns are shipped to both monarchists and republicans. We expect a coup to occur at some point. 

All responses marked "CONGRESS" require a response from @Kingthero and by either @Conservative Elector 2 or @reagan04 (not sure why it isn't tagging him). These bills only need support from  one of these two parties for it to pass. Therefore it fails if both parties oppose the bills. 

We abstain on the Tariff bill.

 

We hard reject any nationalization bills, and also reject the huge blanket bill for the 8 hour workday, along with the minimum wage. We would be open to only limiting the workday to specific industries.

 

We deny this tax increase, citing that our navy is fine at its current size.

With the support of the Liberal Party and most of the Conservative Party, the Tariff bill passes. All other Liberal Party initiatives fall in Congress as they are opposed by both the Conservatives and the American Progress Party. 

@Hestia11

In France, monarchists equipped with American arms launch an attack on the Communist party while it is in session. It becomes a bloody affair. The government guards are able to shoot down several of the leader charging from the front, including Napoleon IV who dies of his wounds. However, the crowd bull rushes over the guard and enters the government building, killing or wounding most of the Communist government in session. Meanwhile, Republicans also armed with US guns seizes the Communist Chairman in the Tuilleries, declaring that the government is now a Republic. This leads to monarchists and Republicans and Communists in a three-way battle in the center of Paris. Within a few weeks Socialists (on the side of the Republicans) and the Fascists (on the side of the Monarchists) also enter the fray. Monarchists declare Napoleon V as their new monarch. Both Germany and Great Britain consider breaking a treaty to intervene. Italy, meanwhile, declares neutrality. People await for the US to make a declaration for one of the factions or for neutrality.

For now, we are happy with the tariff bill passing. We slam Progress and Conservatives for being unwilling to help these poor workers and vow to enact revenge at the ballot box. We cannot support these fringe radicals in France. Throw our lot behind the Republicans, but tacitly prefer the Monarchists over the Communists. We won't join a war or send any forces.

The Conservative Party supports not joining any war, but strongly encourages to back the monarchists in France.

State of the Union for Election of 1904

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

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. We have naval bases in Hawaii, Cuba, and Panama. We have a strong enough army for defense, but not to wage war. 

Foreign Affairs: We are currently arming anti-Communists in France. 

Military: Our military is mostly inactive. Our navy patrols our naval bases. 

Economy: The economy, after two years of a high tariff, is showing a growth of domestic industry. We have finally slipped out of a recession, and it seems likely the economy could improve to pre-Civil War levels. 

Trade: See the economy section.

Budget: Our budget is slightly increasing because of tariff revenue, but it would be nice to have more revenue. Tax bills have failed. 

Social Harmony: Area with heavy labor populations are likely going to see many strikes, some violent. 

Immigration: European, Chinese, Jewish, and Slavic immigrants are coming in larger numbers. Some are calling for a literacy test. 

Mood of the people: Wage workers and poor farmers are disgruntled, but the country mostly has a positive outlook. 

Popularity of the Incumbent: The president has some popularity, but some see the fact that most of his legislation did not pass as a sign of weakness. He still has a decent chance at reelection. 

Party Power: Liberals are likely to see more seats as labor forces organize. Socialists will also see gains, but may cut into Labor gains. Progress will likely stay about where they are at. Conservatives will probably lose some seats in the Northeast and Midwest, but could see gains on the West Coast.

RaceÔĽŅÔĽŅ¬†and gender, if other than white male: N/A

Party: Socialist

Resident stateÔĽŅ: MA

Platform:

National Strength: America has fallen further and further off from the national stage as a result in wavering production and economic turmoil. We must immediately take action to quell the policy of the greedy bankers and those who oppose nationalization and unionization, as they are hindering American production and causing us to be a far less powerful and prestigious nation. 

Foreign Affairs: We must strengthen our relationship with the Italians, as they are in great need of international assistance. They have thrown off the shackles of the wealthy and given power to each and every individual, and we praise them for that. The warship was sunken by the communist French, who are no better than the dictators and kings who have taken control in the past. We must immediately address them on the international stage and demand reparation lest they face consequences. 

Military: Our military does not need to grow and expand, though we may find it necessary to send military assistance to the Italians in quelling their communist insurgents if needed. 

Economy: The economy is essentially stagnated, and only the slight liberal policies put forth by the so called "Liberal" President Rothschild are improving the economy at all. He has no ability to put through worker friendly registration and must be immediately ousted. 

Trade: High protective tariffs must be enacted on all nations, with the exception of the Italians. American industry must be protected, and only our Italian brothers and sisters have embraced work practices that are safe for the worker and not merely efficient for the employer. 

Budget: The budget will be at a surplus, as we can expect the decrease in our military funding and the high protective tariff to undo the havoc wreaked on our finances by prior administrations.  

Social Harmony: The wealthy have pit the poor against each other, specifically the poor farmer in the west and the abused worker in the North. Northern workers will be ecstatic at the progress made under a Dobs administration and Westerners will be overjoyed to see their debts forgiven. 

Popularity of the Incumbent: President Rothschild is a failure of a President, and the American people will not re-elect this fake liberal. We must elect a President who puts workers and farmers at the forefront of policy, and does not give in to the greedy bankers and capitalist pigs. 

Party Power: Socialists should strive to contest seats across the nation, as even slight representation in either chamber of Congress can give us enough sway to affect economic policy and to protect the interests of the worker. Liberal Party members must be immediately ousted, and we should take particular focus in the economically stagnated states in the West that may have Socialist tendencies.

*************

Name and office: President Henry Rothschild

Race and gender, if other than white male:

Party: Liberal

Resident state: California

Platform (see State of the Union):

VP nominee: Sen. Lucian Cartwright (L-Virginia)

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

National Strength: Our government has put us on the right track. We are quickly selling and progressing forward. Soon we will be at Pre- Civil War levels.

Military Strength: Stay on this front, we don't need any further increases.

Foreign Affairs: Continue doing this but arm the Republicans more. Fascists are a concern like Communists.

Military: Not much to do here.

Economy: Use the economy as a key part of our campaign. We would have the economy booming if not for Conservative and Progress obstruction. We will elect a liberal congress and get things done!

Trade: Continue Administration policy of punishing those who leave free trade agreements with higher tariffs.

Budget: Our motions have failed but are still on the table. We are doing well, but could be doing even better with more revenue. A moderate tax on the wealthiest could turn us into a surplus within time.

Social Harmony: We have tried to help Labor but Congress has stifled our efforts. We need to do something on this front and now. We propose talks with the administrators to hammer out what we could get as concessions for their businesses.

Immigration: Continue here. Reject the bills that call for literacy tests. If immigration is unlimited perhaps put a cap on but that is the limit.

Mood of the people: We have been working hard to make the American people as a whole happy and we can continue that into a hopeful second term. 

Popularity of the Incumbent: It is not our fault we couldn't persuade parties that would never vote for us to vote with us. The other parties were unwilling to cross the aisle to get some things done for the American people. The government can help its people, but Conservatives don't think it should.

Party Power: Focus on blunting Socialist gains as it will help us to do that. Try to gain as much as we can with positive messaging as to what we can get done.

Former VP and now Senator of Illinois Harper Inning Runs for the Progress Nomination

 

Name and office: Former VP and Senator Harper Inning

Party: American Progress Party

Resident state:ÔĽŅ¬†Illinois

VP nominee: Oregon Agriculture/Interior Secretary Shelley Jones (Female)

Platform (see State of the Union):

National Strength:

 

This term was a lame duck term; but thankfully, this had no negative effect on the American People.

 

Under Barker's term, we solidified positions that have led to economic gain.

 

The American Progress Party set up strong foundations for our growing economy, took the country out of a depression onto steady growth, and mediated disputes all across the country so that we all, in the long run, stand united in this new state of European and Global affairs.

 

America will continue to grow if our foundations are solid, and kept solid, and that is exactly what I plan to do as your President.

 

Military Strength:

 

Thankfully, we have set up our military in our previous administration so that we do not need to ruin American lives abroad.

 

Our military is defensive, and also thanks to our initiatives our country can provide support to allies without putting a single American soldier on a different continent.

 

Foreign Affairs:

 

We should get revenge for our fallen soldiers near Cuba! We shall continue to send aid to the anti-communist forces; they will be punished for what they did to our AMERICAN MEN!

 

Military: 

 

We should conduct an economic analysis of our current military spending, seeing how large our reserve army is compared to our real army, and see if we can balance the budget further in this regard.

 

Economy:

 

I thank my good friend Lewis for fixing the economy, along with the support of the Conservatives for keeping our foundation alive.

 

I am also thankful to all those farmers that put their trust into our Government, and they should see that their debts will be reduced as time goes on.

 

Trade:

 

While we are hesitant about the tariffs, our tariff situation right now currently balances the geopolitical representation in the world. We shouldn't seek to become more restrictive of trade however, as trade is key to our American industries.

 

Budget:

 

The Liberal Party failed to work with Conservative and Progress lawmakers to create plans that would balance the budget. I promise that with a Progress President, we will Progress towards zero debt and a balanced budget.

 

Social Harmony: 

 

Strikes were not a huge issue until polarized Liberal responses ruined the delicate balance of labor and businesses. 

 

There is no way to return that balance without Government intervention, but I promise to all those States that have supported us in the past, along with the other States where the workers are in peril, that we will give the workers more rights, without bringing the United States towards the ideology that has already caused our people much distress.

 

I will say this right now: No workers, regardless of what industry they belong in, should work more than 10 hours in a shift without reasonable compensation to the threat of personal safety.

 

This is a realistic policy that we can implement with the support of the Government, which means we can deliver what the more extreme sides can not.

 

Immigration:

 

Immigration is what makes us who we are, and making our country harsher against immigrants will just make them join our bordering countries, resulting in more growth for them and less in our own country.

 

Mood of the people:

 

Under our administration, wage workers and farmers WILL SEE CHANGE! We have the unique ability to push through legislation that is both progressive and realistic, and won't upset the grand majority of the population.

 

Popularity of the Incumbent:

 

The President refused to come up with ideas that would represent the whole country, and betrayed the workers that were so in trust of him to make their lives better.

 

We will make the quality of living all across America higher than ever, as we deliver on what we say and what we propose.

 

Party Power:

 

I'd say its about time that the Liberal voters choose what they truly believe: if they believe that an eight hour workday is possible, than they should vote for a Socialist President who would likely actually work with the parties to make it happen, rather than a weak Liberal President that fails to get anything done.

 

All the President does is blame others for his own faults, don't you all see right through that mask?

 

As I was saying, the Liberal Voters should either support the stronger-willed Socialists, choose a new leader to represent them, or vote for a party that will get things done without having to blame others for their failures.

 

That Party is the American Progress Party, and we are open arms to everyone who feels betrayed by the establishments.

 

Say NO to a weak President.

 

Say YES to a prosperous future.

 

Vote Progress for a truly Progressive Future.

OOC: I know it's probably campaign speak, but the this party's anti-labor votes, and a general lack of government innovation makes the "Progressive America" or even the term "Progress" sort of ironic. It's more of a 3rd way, moderate party from what I can tell, which hardly makes it Progressive in the "Progressive Era" since of progressive, which is the age we are now in.

The modern term of progressive is outstandingly different from the gilded-era progressive.

 

The term was more used as a term for progress until it later advanced into the political realm as a word literally meaning "progress towards the end", as in progress shall keep being made in the direction of leftward policy. This is why you don't see the modern right saying they are "progressive" when they implement conservative policies.

 

I've read multiple books, in which every time it refers to the progressive or gilded era, it refers to the term as a general "progress" rather than a "leftward" take, especially since back then there wasn't really a divide of "left versus right" in the two main parties.

 

Also, its an attempt to make a wider appeal message, as it seems the party has a hard time achieving ballots anywhere.

 

Moderate needs to somehow be on the ballot everywhere, and not just in the west/midwest.

OCC: I am well aware of the difference. I've read many books focusing on the era, since 1) Robert La Follette is one of my heroes, and 2) My great-grandfather was one of the leading Ohio Progressives. I'm not suggesting that your party isn't progressive because it isn't Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders, I'm suggesting it isn't even progressive by the Gilded Age term (You should have said Progressive Age term, btw), since it seems too moderate even for that. Your party comes off more as a merge between the Old Silver Populists and Antebellum Democrats. La Follette or Roosevelt (two different versions of Progressive Era progressives) would not recognize your party as one allied to them. You could build an argument for it being somewhat in line with Taft''s Conservative Progressivism, but your ties to the West make it not even that. Your party is really something other than progressive in about any sense. I don't see how your policies can be construed to moving forward. It's more of like a stability party. Basically, the party lacks innovation and boldness, whether it is liberal, conservative, or third way. Just my observation. This isn't to say it isn't a great party for our RP, because it is, it just isn't progressive.

Well, in all honesty in this RP we have drifted a lot of political ideals, if we splat this party into our irl timeline your argument would be justified. However, with the specific issues we have been focusing on, the theme of what is defined as progressive in general to the American People and what is defined as the opposite is changed.

 

Without an agriculturally-based South, the lack of social conservatism makes it so that idea of social beliefs doesn't even fit our own timeline.

 

Also an observation: a lot of Presidents have been almost exactly opposite of eachother, and we have been rebranding progress and progressivism more in the sense of getting things done in what seemingly is progress for the American nationstate rather than on typical timeline issues.

 

I don't know, but I'd also take a gamble that political terms as we know it today were defined in the past to associate with those historic presidencies and parties, which may present the argument that its all about the branding.

 

In this RP, I don't think populism has really reached much intensity, and I feel the socialists might be able to brand populism a lot.

State of the Union for Election of 1904

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

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. We have naval bases in Hawaii, Cuba, and Panama. We have a strong enough army for defense, but not to wage war. 

Foreign Affairs: We are currently arming anti-Communists in France. 

Military: Our military is mostly inactive. Our navy patrols our naval bases. 

Economy: The economy, after two years of a high tariff, is showing a growth of domestic industry. We have finally slipped out of a recession, and it seems likely the economy could improve to pre-Civil War levels. 

Trade: See the economy section.

Budget: Our budget is slightly increasing because of tariff revenue, but it would be nice to have more revenue. Tax bills have failed. 

Social Harmony: Area with heavy labor populations are likely going to see many strikes, some violent. 

Immigration: European, Chinese, Jewish, and Slavic immigrants are coming in larger numbers. Some are calling for a literacy test. 

Mood of the people: Wage workers and poor farmers are disgruntled, but the country mostly has a positive outlook. 

Popularity of the Incumbent: The president has some popularity, but some see the fact that most of his legislation did not pass as a sign of weakness. He still has a decent chance at reelection. 

Party Power: Liberals are likely to see more seats as labor forces organize. Socialists will also see gains, but may cut into Labor gains. Progress will likely stay about where they are at. Conservatives will probably lose some seats in the Northeast and Midwest, but could see gains on the West Coast.

Party:

Platform (see State of the Union):

VP nominee: 

 

House Minority Leader John Rodgers

C-TX

VP: Gov. Theodore Hillsbury (C-IN)

National Strength: There is nothing to thank but Conservative policy for this growth, we have bent every single President since President Carpenter and the birth of our Party to the right and it has paid off. Our Party has led the nation into great strides of growth and we have defended its economy from terrible policies by the Liberal Party that would set growth back, we propose putting a Conservative in the White House for the first time in 20 years to cement this growth.

Military: We are happy with the bases we have built and short of any possible aggression from France or Italy, we are content with the state of the Military.

Foreign Affairs: We must support Anti-Communists in France and Anti-Socialists in Italy, those two vices may never reign over the Free World.

Economy: This is exactly what we need, the Conservative Party has pushed through reforms that have saved businesses and now is the time that we MUST finish denationalization, keep our tariff sturdy for the time being while the economy grows until we can lower it along with all government spending to realize our dream of truly small government. This is also a prime time to push through the Right to Business Amendment. We need a Gold Standard to get back on track.

Trade: Trade is great, I support trade with the 3rd World as well as building relations with all of Europe excluding France and Italy, where we must support resistance to those terrible Big Government regimes.

Budget: The secret is lowering spending, not increasing revenues!

Social Harmony: We encourage these reforms to be made at the state level if they so choose, this is simply not the prerogative of the Federal Government.

Immigration: A Literacy Test is absolutely necessary, we must protect the integrity of our borders! We also propose and support an ideology test to weed out Socialists, Communists, and Fascists.

Mood of the People: We want to assure the wage worker that we are working in the interest of all Americans, we bow neither to Big Business nor Big Labor, we bow to the will of the people and the Constitution only. We stand against large government because it violates our fundamental rights of Americans.

Popularity: We have stopped the President from passing his dangerous and reckless reforms, we are proud to point that out, when we are in power, we will be elated to remove this lame duck and actually get work done that the people see wished done.

Party Power: We will work against the Labor organizations by getting employers to offer voting suggestions and even benefits for employees that support their own economic prosperity by voting Conservative. We have a base in the Middle and Upper classes, let's use it. Let's fight tax increases and job-killing regulations and let's blast those two tenets of the Liberals loud and clear before the Working and Middle Classes.

(Note: my platform will likely be defined in depth by noon tomorrow, which is still within the 24 hour time span. However, if for expediency you choose to do it sooner, the gist of the Socialist Platform is the same it was 4 years ago except with a focus on down-the-ballot performance as a means of political obstruction and bargaining chips, as well as blaming the French for the sinking of our warship)
