Consider it wholeheartedly reaffirmed!

The Conservative Party will adopt these two amendments with the rest of the plan as is if the Liberals would then support those terms in order to reach compromise.

Our reserve army is to continue to be resettled, and we want our boys on the fast track of deoccupation, this will be achievable when the new Japanese Constitution is written and the Liberals agree to our peace terms.

The first is another go at the denationalization of shipping. We will continue to push for this as we believe it to be the morally correct option

The second is an Executive Order. That being that all Federal employees found possessing pornographic material are to be immediately suspended and investigated for potential termination.

And finally, we wish to deregulate the Housing Market by temporarily cutting taxes on its companies, deregulating its resource providers, and providing tax breaks to companies which will be serving our Veterans. We must do all we can to bolster the foundation of new American Families as our troops return home, find a girl, and get settled down to make this nation stronger domestically as they have internationally.

The Socialist Labor Party will vote against this umpteenth attempt to denationalize the shipping industry.

The Socialist Labor Party will vote against the deregulation of the Housing Market, taxes cuts for large corporations and deregulation of building resource providers, the President is making it clear that he does not give a damn about veterans as he is attempting to gut regulations that make American homes safe and secure and any regulations that would protect veterans from possibly being priced out of housing or being swindled by companies who provide housing and also seem to be intent on eradicating the budget surplus we have by giving handouts to large corporations.

We condemn the SLP for using such vulgar language against the Office of the Presidency and to impugn the motive of this Party and its honorable members of Congress. That is not to be tolerated.

Secondly, if you were to actually read the proposal, you would note that we did not deregulate safety standards, but rather restrictions on the ability of home resource-suppliers to harvest those resources for a temporary period of time in order to keep Housing prices low. We are almost certainly going to be running into a Housing Crisis after the war, any economist worth his bread would tell you that, we need to make sure the cornerstone of our societies, the nuclear family, is secure.

And secondly, the SLP is bringing back its favorite strawman, seemingly forgetting that the large, overwhelming majority of housing construction at this time is performed by locally owned contractors and builders. If we were to use Socialist logic, perhaps the Socialists really do dislike all forms of business, including the livelihoods of millions of the middle and working class families that the Conservative party wishes to give better opportunities and to enrich and give them parlance in the American Dream. We, of course, do not believe that this is what the SLP's leaders wish but we point out that this is the path of their politics and we warn them from continuing on it.

On the first point the party could have used much stronger language than that but we did not want to breach decorum too much.

On the second point we were not referring to safety regulations being cut were referring to the proposed deregulation of housing resource providers which could lead to companies using sub-par resources in order to keep costs low and inadvertently affecting the overall quality of buildings and structural integrity of them.

On the third point OOC: we don't have details provided to us about what technology level the country is at bar war tech unless someone can point me to it, the party will vote for tax cuts if the Conservatives can assure us that they will only go to small businesses.

There is now a Department of Veteran's Affairs. It has a rocky start, but every day gets better and better.

 

Quote
  • Unseat the current Tenno and find a loyal noblemen who is willing to carry on the tradition as the new emperor and who is willing to unite the people.
  • Establish the elected post of Prime Minister, he shall be elected to a maximum of two 4 year terms. He shall be the actual head of state while the Tenno is only allowed to hold a ceremonial office. We would like to be informed by the prime minister about possible unusual activities in his country as we intend to cooperate strongly
  • Establish a Senate and a House of Representative like in our country which is composed of two Senators and a certain amount of Representatives which represent their states.
  • Reorganize the Japanese prefectures into states with an elected Governor and Senates/Houses on state level
  • Establish a Supreme Court with nine justices appointed by the prime minister for life
  • We ban Fascist and Communistic parties from taking power. However, we would not block these people from voting for said party. The Emperor would be unable to give them the power to actually take government. They can choose to vote them into opposition, but not into government.
  • The Japanese Army will be constitutionally prohibited from being used in any offensive war, and can only participate in defensive wars.
  • We want to establish a healthy and strong bond with the Japanese, so we will aid them to rebuild their industry and we will aid them with strong trade agreements.
  • We would like to acquire at least one port city to turn it into a international hub of friendship and peace. Yokohama came to our mind.
  • We will put no civilians on trial but the most influential generals and noblemen should face justice for their crimes against their own people.

This modified peace treaty passes Congress, and is officially up for the President to send to the Japanese via whatever method he chooses.

I was more referring to the soldier count, but your increased focus on resettlement has helped these men get back to work.

This fails.

The second is an Executive Order. That being that all Federal employees found possessing pornographic material are to be immediately suspended and investigated for potential termination.

The Order is implemented with little controversy.

After an insane battle in Congress, eventually the only thing that comes from this effort was tax cuts for veterans. The bill is up for signature.

 

@Reagan04 This will be the last turn before the election.

I will make the first (that I know of) trip even taken by a President outside of the United States and personally travel to Tokyo to sign the Treaty with the Japanese face to face to ring in a new intimate partner on the world stage.

I will, of course, sign this bill into law. But we warn that if more is not done, the Housing Market could still falter leaving our families with few options. But we will have to see.

I will not run and endorse @Reagan04's character.

 

As VP choice I present General Arthur McNamara from OH (1880-1956), a highly-decorated general who served in the Japanese-American war.

Key Issue to Defend in Theoretical Debate: Free Trade with Mexico and Canada/Infrastructure Plan

Platform (see State of the Union):

National Strength: Aim to boost ourselves up a spot or two, but essentially it isn't a big concern.

Military Strength: Perfect our bases in Japan, and focus on creating a healthy environment in Japan. For now, the American military will need to patrol much of the island until we can trust the Japanese to take it over for themselves. We would like to set a target date of five-six years for the Japanese to take over the general policing of the islands. Call up a few thousand reserves to help in this, but not an over abundance.

Foreign Affairs: Revamp our foreign policy with drives aimed at forging alliances with our partners here in the Western Hemisphere, notably Canada, Mexico and Brazil. Prepare to deliver a speech that colonialism in the Americas has largely come to its natural end and our continents stand strong. Work closely with the new Japanese administration to give a carefully executed handover of power. Perhaps in that five or six years, I can visit the islands and officially hand over policing power to the Japanese. I would love to take off in a year or two to try and hammer out a free trade deal with Canada and Mexico. 

Military: Just keep patrolling Japan for now until we can set up a local police force.

Economy: We are excited at the rate that our economy is moving and pledge to keep it moving that way. Liberals will find ways to grow it even more, by forging new deals with Mexico and Canada, which can help the already booming economy. The Former President and a Liberal Congress were necessary parts in this, as was the war in Japan. We need to prepare to have veterans returning for jobs, and the slowdown that comes after wars. To create new jobs, we will attempt a comprehensive infrastructure plan to send through Congress to build a road and train system throughout our great nation, as well as working with Canadian officials to create a railway that goes from Alaska, through British Columbia, down through Washington and Oregon, and into California. This can bring necessary jobs to the American labor force. Liberals will show they stand for the American worker and American business by offering businesses tax breaks if they would agree to participate in this plan. We anticipate we will have many offers from esteemed companies. 

Trade: We trade a lot with Europe for not being on the European continent. I call for a diversification of our trade with our closest neighbors in the Americas. 

Budget: We need to do all we can to keep this surplus going. If we can do that, we can do many projects for the American people, and the plan I outlined in the economy section will be the key to growing our economy, and our surplus. We need to plan for an eventual settling down of this.

Social Harmony: We are ecstatic that our people are feeling more united than ever, but there is still a lot of work to do. Luckily, Liberal administration is ready for the tough work ahead, and we will keep our economy humming.

Immigration: Immigrants have seen the greatness of our nation and are welcome to live here.

Mood of the people: We are glad the people are happy. 

Party Power: Use rallies and other local events to bolster Liberals down-ballot. While Conservatives have been willing to work with us, we have to prepare for times when that won't be the case.

Popularity of the Incumbent: We will largely skirt the questions on the President, as we respected the Former President. The new President hasn't had much time in administration, but we do critique the fact that he wasn't willing to come to bipartisan solutions like his predecessor. 

The Socialist Labor Party praises this Liberal candidate's proposal of an infrastructure plan and promises to implement something similar if the Socialist Labor Candidate is elected as well as support it in Congress if this Liberal candidate wins the Presidency.

@MBDemSoc

 

What I don't get is that you seem to be appealing to a wider range of voters when you address situations, but your platform is always the exact same. So like, your numbers seem to grow, but then sink back down again because of a re-run platform. I've seen multiple cases where your replies seemingly have been pushing your party more popular, however the platform is always blunting the growth.

Also it can be difficult to remember how much of a socialist / social democratic economy is in place in the RP world.

President Hillsbury announces his bid for one elected term of his own, saying it will be his only one.

Black Male

72

Conservative

Indiana

Either McNamara or Trebuano

We will defend the Conservative position on Patriotism and American Success as that is a strong way to inspire Conservative turnout

National Strength: We should be trying to aggressively mount the top of the Strongest Nations. America is truly the greatest nation on the planet and the Conservatives are aiming high for a super powerful nation.

Military Strength: We will continue the progress in Japan, getting our bases ship-shape and helping build their nation. The Administration has set out a plan to withdraw all troops occupying Japan either back to the bases or back home by 1945.

Military: As stated above, our plan to return almost all active duty troops to the United States is going smoothly and I see no reason why this should change.

Economy: We will run hard on an economy which has been greatly nurtured under Conservative tenure. Focus on the Housing Market and industrial deregulation and detaxation. We should focus on cutting our Budget back down to size. Vets need to be ready to settle down and find homes that are not too pricey. We want to implement Free Trade agreements with most of the World over and agree with the Liberals that Free Trade is the way to ensure the economy keeps chugging at its current pace. Government intervention has continuously hindered the economy and we will not allow that to occur. We will offer tax incentives to companies which will cooperate in a Free Market infrastructure project to build homes and public works to a nation ready for continue economic growth, we must stand against plans which would make us susceptible to post-war decline.

Foreign Affairs: We should focus on allying ourselves more closely with our neighbors while retaining good relations in Europe. We do not wish for any further military engagement for the long future so we shouldn't write-off the hotbox of the world, Europe. Use this International Summit to work towards goodwill among the nations foremost powers and end the constant power struggling that has plagued Europe and East Asia. Free Trade should be a central tent of this platform and global trade shall be expanded in the coming decades. 

Trade: Of course open up Japan as a great ally and untapped resource but work on implementing American economic hegemony on the New World, making us the top economic powerbroker in the New World. We should particularly work on relations with Mexico, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, and Venezuela. Keep to our own devices away from Europe at the time being on Trade growth. But again, global trade should be the ultimate goal so I wouldn't favor neglecting them.

Budget: We are planning a huge cut to the military budget and we'd like to privatize infrastructure and work on getting most of the government's ventures into the hands of the people and Free Market. We want the debt paid off As soon as possible.

Social Harmony: We will use this unification over a national identity to our great advantage. We will campaign heavily on protecting American Family values and Traditions. In a strong economy, we promise to keep Conservative administration working dutifully and in this world, where it seems that there is a growing tide of Evolutionism and Pornography, the government must be ready to protect the Christian lineage of the American Nation and people. President Hillsbury reaches out personally to moralist and socially conservative Black voters to support his final term.

Immigration: We are very happy with high levels of immigration, as long as the immigrants we are getting are not extremists, this has always been the policy of the Conservative Party and I support it. We want good immigrants, ones ready to quickly assimilate into participation in the American Dream.

Mood: Use is this our great advantage, this has all happened under a Conservative administration. Why rock the boat? Use this unity to campaign on American values and who we are a Nation. That being a Christian Nation of Limited Government.

Party: As always, use the winning of the war to boost Patriotism and the American Spirit. To couple this, the biography of the President, being born in a time when some black folks were still kept as property and rising through the adversity in the inner city of Indianapolis to become President of the United States only achievable through a strong faith in God and a hard work ethic. We'll make this a theme of the Conservative campaign, one of rugged individualism, led by great people like the President, Senate Majority Leader Trebuano, and her Whip Sen, Franklin. All of them who came from adverse positions to rise to influence through small government, hard work, and that faith in God. We want the American Dream to be accessible to all and we want America to stand atop the world as the greatest nation on the faith of the planet. Use the mood of war victory and Moralism to frenzy our supporters with sweeping Patriotism which will propel our surrogates to great crowds as we crisscross the country trying to keep the Senate and pick up the House so that the Liberals and their mini-me's the Socialists, will stop blockading our efforts.

President: The President is certainly not unpopular and being unsure of by roughly a quarter of the population, we will play his biography to sway the other 24% to support us and will, of course, champion the legacy of President Talbot and now President Hillsbury.

1936 Election

Welcome to the election of 1936! This election, we see a former GOP presidential nominee, turned VP, turned President facing against a Liberal candidate whom almost beat the popular incumbent in the previous election.

 

Primaries

There were no significant primaries.

 

General Election Round 1

 

Hillsbury/Trebauno (Con) 402 EV 45% PV [All States but the ones below.]

Swan/Ericksen (Lib) 163 EV 46% PV [NH, VT, CT, PA, AZ, NM, LA, SC, NC, TN, CO, NE, KS, HI, CU, PR, MN]

Thomas/Nelson (Soc) 0 EV 9% PV

 

Note: This election was much closer than the electoral vote deemed it too be; Liberals actually got more overall votes than the Conservatives, but Conservatives managed many slim margin victories, likely due to a re-surging socialist party. However, Liberal dominance in the Senate and almost the House is a new change. We also see socialists at a local level gaining steam again.

New England (ME, NH, VT, MA, RI, CT) : Tossup | Region Hot 3 Issues: Shipping, Trade, Economy

1936 Election

Welcome to the election of 1936! This election, we see a former GOP presidential nominee, turned VP, turned President facing against a Liberal candidate whom almost beat the popular incumbent in the previous election.

 

Primaries

There were no significant primaries.

 

General Election Round 1

 

Hillsbury/Trebauno (Con) 402 EV 45% PV [All States but the ones below.]

Swan/Ericksen (Lib) 163 EV 46% PV [NH, VT, CT, PA, AZ, NM, LA, SC, NC, TN, CO, NE, KS, HI, CU, PR, MN]

Thomas/Nelson (Soc) 0 EV 9% PV

 

Note: This election was much closer than the electoral vote deemed it too be; Liberals actually got more overall votes than the Conservatives, but Conservatives managed many slim margin victories, likely due to a re-surging socialist party. However, Liberal dominance in the Senate and almost the House is a new change. We also see socialists at a local level gaining steam again.

State of the Union after the Election of 1936

 

National Strength: We rank 3rd in the list of the top 10 countries: Russia, Germany, United States, Great Britain, France, Mexico, Austria, Sweden, Spain, China.

Military Strength: Our professional army is 18,000 men and 50 ships, with a reserve army of 106,000 men solely for defense. We have naval bases in Hawaii, Cuba, Panama, St. Pierre and Miquelon, American Polynesia, and Japan.

Foreign Affairs: We officially at peace with Japan.

Military: Our military is semi-active. Some of our military is in Pacific Bases, while others are static. Reserves have been re-integrated.

Economy: The economy begins to grow exponentially.

Trade: We trade 25% with non-European powers, 17% with Britain, 15% with Germany, 20% with France, and 23% with other non-radical European powers. Trade has stagnated after immense growth.

Budget: Our budget is currently in a surplus, with 10% of our spending going to paying off our debt, aimed to be paid off by 1942. Our budget consists of the income of 34% taxes 44% tariff 8% overseas territories/canals and 12% nationalized industries, and the expenditure of 65% military 10% gov. upkeep 15% infrastructure and 10% debt repayment.

Social Harmony: The country is still feeling the effects of the popular war, and is very united.

Immigration: Immigration surges after initial gradual growth.

Mood of the people: People are ecstatic; a growing economy, paired with a surge of unity or immigration, has led to fast-paced growth.

Party Power: Senate is Liberal, while House has a Liberal plurality.

 

Events and Decisions for January 1937 - January 1941 for Pres. Hillsbury @Reagan04

1) Growth of Hydroelectricity

While smaller than in our timeline due to no Federal commitment, dams across the United States have been used to re-direct water flow to help farmers and developers, used to generate electricity, and even used to make it easier to store water. Limited science backs the long term impacts of such dams, but they have shown positive implications. Many States in the west have requested that the Federal Government regulate dams, so that if disaster struck, there could be people held legally responsible.

2) Union Security

As employers have been reaping the growth of the economy, laborers have begun to unionize in high numbers in order to also reap said growths.

3) Chinese "Blitz" of Southeast Asia

Immediately after the Japanese War Treaty was officially signed, Chinese troops swarmed into French Indochina. As a matter of fact, China conquered the territory before word even got back to the French mainland. France has requested that we send naval aid in order to protect French and other sovereign territories from naval invasion. An official State of war exists between France and China.

4) Re-Establishing our Military Numbers

As of right now, we have 18,000 Active troops, and 108,000 Reserve troops. Military advisers suggest raising this number substantially in order to protect our interests.

5) Japanese Progression

Japan has been complying with the peace deal, and has even shown signs of slight exponential economic growth. Our industries and advisers have done great over there. Do you wish to continue aid, or withdraw it?

6) Hokkaido-Japan Question

While it is unknown of the relation between our two allies, many of the American Public wonder if there is any chance of re-unification of these two countries. Does the President wish to get involved, or let these feelings pass?

7) Rise of Natural Disasters

Across the Midwest and west, tornadoes and droughts have struck in higher amounts. Scientists are split on the matter: some say it is completely natural, while others say that agricultural and industrial processes have led to it. What stance does the President wish to take?

😎 Roaring 30's

Across the board, the economy, immigration, and trade has been all high. Citizens are enjoying the rapid development and distribution of goods, many business are being created, and more and more money is being invested via credit. Some advisers worry that this high use of economic activity will lead to a great economic crash without any regulation on credit.

9) Policy Distinction

Politics has been relatively co-operative in the past few decades, with the Conservative and Liberal parties showing multiple similarities with few differences. Does the President wish to jab at the Liberal Party, and distinguish the Conservative Party more from the Liberals, possibly to either gain or lose votes, or does the President wish to sustain the relatively tame political atmosphere in order to push more focused goals?

10) Free

Anything not included here you wish to implement?

 

Congressional Majority Opposition @Hestia11

1) Block Measures

As a majority opposition, you have the ability to block specific actions by the President. While I simulate votes and sometimes things change, this block will be much more meaningful than the usual blocking. You gain one of these a year, with a cap of 4. Note that you have these if you are really against something

2) Proposal

As a majority opposition, you can likely propose and pass bills, though likely to be veto'ed. You gain the ability to propose one bill a year, with a cap of 4. Note this if you feel creative one day, or are really hostile against a specific policy.

Liberals will attempt to pass our first bill in this era. It is a massive infrastructure plan that we have discussed with Socialist leaders.

It lays out the following

1) An interstate system of roads that will span from sea to sea, with the main passages being from New York City to Los Angeles, Minneapolis to Houston, Miami to DC, Seattle to Denver, Denver to Omaha. 

2) Tax credits will be offered to those businesses that are willing to employ American workers and that are willing to join in on this project, whether it be the roads or the railway system.

3) A continental railroad that stretches from Ottawa to Mexico City, to be contracted by an American company in coordination with our friends in Canada and Mexico (if they wish to sign on). This would stretch through states like New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Kentucky, Texas and more.

4) A US-based railway system that will connect travelers extensively with the rest of the US. This system would be a complex system of railways throughout the US, and hitting major travel hubs. 

5) This plan will be aided in financing by the federal government out of our surplus to aid the contractors who are building this. We propose this money either comes out of the surplus, and divert some of the money from the normal infrastructure budget to this. 

6) We encourage Conservative leaders to get behind the plan as to make it a bipartisan plan rather than a partisan issue. We need to better connect our country, and we believe this is the way to do it. 

@Reagan04 @Kingthero

As previously mentioned the Socialist Labor Party will support this bill.

2) Proposal

As a majority opposition, you can likely propose and pass bills, though likely to be veto'ed. You gain the ability to propose one bill a year, with a cap of 4. Note this if you feel

1) We are huge supporters of dams and believe in the safety of our people. As such we will be proposing the Hydroelectric Energy Safety Protocol Act (HESPA) of 1937 in order to show commitment to furthering the nation and our willingness to be bipartisan. The Liberals have wildly and baselessly claimed that we are not willing to reach across the aisle, we were disappointed to hear that and hope that HESPA will help us deal with such disaffection. Let us first be clear, in accordance with the United States Commerce Clause, all HESPA regulations apply only to dams which are either set on an interstate river and would affect a state other than that which it is located or whose electricity will be sold or transported across state lines. This covers most dams except for small local ones which constitute a minuscule fraction of dams, however, are Constitutionally out of reach for Congressional regulation. What HESPA will do is make knowingly constructing a faulty dam illegal and constructing a dam that fails, even if not knowing of its faults, will be a crime should any property or persons be harmed in the failure. Dams are not to dramatically alter communities, through the stoppage of a water source, communities across state lines or intrastate communities if the electricity of said dam is subject to interstate transport. The Hydroelectric Safety Commission (HSC) will be in charge of enforcing these regulations and will also be in charge of reporting to the DOJ on any possible lawsuits needed. These crimes, should they be found guilty, will result in fines proportional to the damage caused to the people which they harmed and will be payable directly to the aforementioned people.

 

We encourage states to create similar initiatives regarding dams not subject to HESPA and other Congressional regulation as defined in the above act in accordance with the Commerce Clause.

 

2) We have no problem here. We aren't going to attack unions or anything of the sort. This is entirely fine and to be expected when you experience the type of growth that leaving the economy alone incurs. In fact, it would break our policy of non-interference to try to cut down on Public Unions. As long as no man nor woman is forced to join a union for gainful employment, this administration sees no need for interference.

 

3) The last thing we're doing is launching another war. That being said, France is our ally and in our close circle. Notably, an expansive China would threaten our Japanese allies as well. We cannot allow this to go unchecked as they tear through Southeast Asia. We will condemn these actions and begin to provide paltry aid with the constrictions laid upon us. We wish to do more and so we will reinforce our Japanese-stationed reserves to bolster defenses there and we propose the Lend-Lease Act of 1937 which will allow us to supply, for a profit-gaining cost, a slice into our arms to the French as well as greater access to our arms industry. France will have their pick of what to lease and they will pay the contracts for that. Our military is notably strong and we cannot let Asia fall into the clutches of Authoritarianism. (OOC: Which ideology is China, I assume not Commie, Fascist?)



 

4)We will increase this number slightly and reinforce our Japanese regiments and set our Asian forces into a state of readiness and defense. However, must of the withdrawal plan is already complete so this should not be too much of a big deal.

 

5) We will absolutely continue this aid! We want to continue to pour American industries and markets into Japan to have them grow increasingly dependent on us economically. We should expand this influence wherever we can to counter Anti-American ideas abroad. Given the aggressive Chinese, the last thing we do is walk away from Japan. I propose a military alliance to the President of Japan in hopes of warding off Chinese aggression onto the island. I also offer them a second batch of trade deals that would remove nearly all tariffs between us, allowing as much market flow as possible.

 

6) We personally favor reunification for a stronger Japan. But if that is not what the people wish than it is not what they wish. Hokkaido has more American-influence than Japan so even if they stay separate it will not affect us too much. I'd like to invite both of the leaders to Los Angeles to discuss the future of our 3 great nations.

 

7) We err on the side of naturality. But we do believe that it is curious that farming soil becomes worn and depleted. We don't see this as a place for Federal intervention, however, I do order the Department of Agriculture to look into this further and to complete research on the subject so that we may pass our findings on to the states to better inform them on courses of action.

 

😎 It would be wildly inappropriate for us to regulate the financial sector. Look, here’s the deal, the market will likely correct itself, and when it does, the last thing it needs is government intervention. If we let the banks ride it out and we allow them to inflate the amount of money in the system, that will keep us from economic depression and help cull the recession. As long as we do not attempt to artificially inflate wages and prices and as long as we don’t attempt to strike some half-cocked deal between labor and industry stopping the market from cutting the losses it needs to and healing itself, a couple hard years won’t turn into any large collapse. But really, who would attempt such a thing, who would, in their right mind try to spend billions on government aid, attempt economic stimulus with failed infrastructure plans, stop major corporations from the layoffs they need to make in order to stop overextension, increase tariffs absolutely destroying our market diversification, and propose sweepingly unconstitutional reforms that plunge recession into a decades-long depression? Looks at camera And thank GOD we don’t have one giant Central bank that controls inflation and monetary policy but instead is spread across the market and the treasury so it can freely self-adjust to dull down crises. What a dumb idea that would be. Looks at camera again more intensely So our final answer is no, we will not interfere with the works of American business as more government could only stand to make things much, much worse, and would plunge us into unpayable debt and an economic collapse so thick it could only be paid for in the cost of American lives. That being said, one thing that we know will dull the correction when it most likely arrives is more free trade agreements to soften the blow. We propose a sweeping agreement with Canada and Mexico coupled with those with Japan and France above to shore up market diversification. We also take the time to note that our market is thankfully not invested in only construction and oil but we have already constructed domestic production safeguards against what a catastrophe that would be!

 

9) Quite honestly, this sounds like a loaded question. Of course, I’m not going to attack the Liberals for the sake of being different. If we’re both right then the right thing gets done with little opposition. Who could possibly oppose that! In fact, I’d like to talk to the nation every week on a nationwide radio talk time, maybe some even on the new television technology we’ve cooked up, to inspire unity and non-partisan politics. Politics not driven by what party you’re a member of, but by what ideas you believe. Our differences with the Liberals are few and rather specific, but that’s a good thing. We both want what’s best for America, we just disagree on the specifics of achieving our shared goals.

 

10) One thing we’d like to do is propose a bill that would outlaw the financing of bailouts of any large corporation. This act, known as the Fiscal and Economic Responsibility Act (FERA) of 1938 will make the government saving a large corporation which has gone bankrupt with massive sums of taxpayer money. This is to discourage crony capitalism and excess, the government shouldn’t be a market force, only the market. We can’t have the people on the hook for the excess of Big Business, just like Business should be left to do what they do best, responsible business in a true and pure Capitalist Free Market.

@Reagan04 @Kingthero

As stated in our platform, we support an idea similar to this, sanctioned by the government but not funded by it. We wish to employ the nation's largest construction companies and link them together for a large project owned by private entities. We agree with your conditions 1-4 and believe that this is a great step forward for modernization. However, with condition 5, we'd like only a small amount of financing to come from the Federal Government and much of this coming from the deep tax cuts to the point of slashing the participating companies tax rates every year. The government will work on the papers of traveling through each state and provide tax credits and very limited financial subsidies and stipends while the several corporations finance much of it and the infrastructure remains privately owned.

We agree with your conditions 1-4 and believe that this is a great step forward for modernization. However, with condition 5, we'd like only a small amount of financing to come from the Federal Government and much of this coming from the deep tax cuts to the point of slashing the participating companies tax rates every year. The government will work on the papers of traveling through each state and provide tax credits and very limited financial subsidies and stipends while the several corporations finance much of it and the infrastructure remains privately owned.

The Soc Lab Party will vote for HESPA.

The Soc Lab Party will vote for the LLA of 1937.

The Soc Lab Party will vote for FERA.

The Soc Lab Party will vote for the infrastructure project only if a large section of the funding comes from the government and will absolutely not vote for the infrastructure of the nation to be owned by private companies and will also not vote for those companies to receive tax breaks while constructing the infrastructure.
