Liberals attempt to breach a compromise between the two sides.

We will vote for HESPA, LLA and FERA.

LIBERAL INFRA PLAN: In order to bring Socialists and Conservatives to the table, we propose that the project is 60% funded by private organizations, 40% by the federal government. We could easily foot this bill within the regular infrastructure budget with a bit of the surplus diverted to aid this. Liberals propose that it is technically within the bounds of the private owners that control it, however they cannot sell it without the consent of the government, as this is a project for the people, not for the companies. We will vote for breaks on the companies, as long as they aren't too steep. After all, they are helping us, not hurting us in this instance. They cannot turn this into a private venture (as far as private use, they have to let it be public use, for anyone). 

 

The Soc Lab Party will vote for the compromise.

The Conservatives will be willing to agree to this and the President will sign it if the project is set up as a private venture in which the Federal Government is a 40% minority shareholder with board power. This is certainly an acceptable compromise and we are happy to have figured out a way to meet the demands of both sides of the aisle while advancing the people at the same time.

Liberals celebrate the plan as a bipartisan infrastructure plan that was heralded by Liberal leaders from the beginning. Great things happen when bipartisanship reigns, House Majority Leader Reur proclaims. 

The Conservatives likewise celebrate this victory and are proud to have kept infrastructure out of the hands of Government management. The President and Vice President would like meet with Leader Reur for a joint signing of the bill if the Honorable Representative would like to attend?

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.

The HESPA passes Congress with a supermajority, and has reached extraordinary success. Dams are going up all across America, and every step is taken to make sure that they do not negatively harm the American People.

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.

The issue of Unions is yet again made a non-issue.

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.

The LLA passes Congress, and France decides to use it to their advantage. Their other Pacific Islands are likely protected for good, however Southeast Asia is now completely Chinese. China's next move will likely be seen after midterms.

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.

The Active Army is now at 30,000 and the Reserves are back at 120,000.

 

Quote

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.

While we continue our aid, Japan uses the excuse that it will be us bringing them into war in order to block additional trade deals ontop of our free trade agreement. 

 

Quote

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.

They don't want to unify, however Hokkaido wants to do something similar to what the Japanese denied in order to protect themselves.

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.

A study has begun.

The American People stand with the President's strong position on the economy, however both Canada and Mexico refuse to deal with any trade deals this term.

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.

This is an astounding rally for both Conservatives and Liberals that there is much more good in unity than adversity.

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.

This passes Congress, but only time will tell if its honored.

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. 60% of the funding is from private companies, and 40% of the funding is from the Government which also has an equivalent share to their % invested. However, the Government's share can be worked by private investors and sold with Government consent.

The passed Infra bill looks something like this, however delays push this back till after midterms.

 

@Reagan04

 

Midterms will be tomorrow morning; you can react to the events now. You may or may not get some events after midterms.

Well while they are still in Los Angeles, let's set up a conference for a Trade and Defense type treaty between the two of us. I wonder, what does Congress and that American People think about that?

Don't you know that isn't politically correct anymore? The "ed" is offensive.

And I most likely won't, I wanted diversity in race and gender but being a man of faith I probably won't venture into that category.

What does that have to do with faith? There are LGBT priests, pastors, and reverends that are easily more Christ-like than Ted Cruz  or Joel Olsteen and other similar Christians that use their faith as a crutch for their political or financial ambitions.

Well, I'd argue that the lion's share of LGBT priests we've seen are not more Christ-like than those mentioned. We should remember that we can't put ourselves above God and that's the fact of it. I'm not trying to get into a large argument with you and derail this thread, I'm just letting you know I'd be uncomfortable with a trans character because it would violate my personal beliefs.

Former President Talbot states that this would perfectly underline what I have fought for during my terms.

Midterms

 

 

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 30,000 men and 50 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: China is going crazy.

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 still grows exponentially.

Trade: We trade 24% with non-European powers, 17% with Britain, 15% with Germany, 21% with France, and 23% with other non-radical European powers. Trade has stagnated.

Budget: Our budget is currently balanced, with 0% of our spending going to paying off our debt, aimed to be paid off by never. Our budget consists of the income of 36% taxes 43% tariff 8% overseas territories/canals and 11% nationalized industries, and the expenditure of 60% military 10% gov. upkeep 30% infrastructure and 0% debt repayment.

Social Harmony: The country is still very united.

Immigration: Immigration continues to surge immensely.

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.

Popularity of the Incumbent: The president is average, ending midterms with a 56% approval rating and 26% disapproval rating.

 

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

Congress

Liberal 53/104 Senate 46% US Rep

Conservatives 51/104 Senate 43% US Rep

Socialists 0/104 Senate 11% US Rep

 

@Reagan04 State of Affairs

 

1. China invades British India, pushes the British all the way back towards near-modern-day Pakistan. The subcontinent of India fell very fast.

2. Budget is balanced right now, and will soon return to a surplus. For the first time, we aren't using debt to pay off our post-war expenses.

3. We still can handle the Infra bill without cutting costs due to our astounding economy.

Liberal leaders call on clarification from the President on a stance on British India. We say that we should back the British only if at the conclusion of the war an eventual independence (within 20 years) of the Indian subcontinent is assured. A vital American ally could be created here.

The Socialist Labor Party backs this call.

We always enjoy new members! If you want to craft a party, we lack a harder right-leaning. We have center-left Liberals, farther left Socialists, and somewhat center-right Conservatives. It's up to you, otherwise you can join a Conservative, Liberal, or Socialist and compete in primaries and hopefully the presidency! I'd read back a few pages to get caught up on what's been going on.

Alright, thanks, I will just craft more right-winged conservative style party, and I'll read back a few pages before starting.

We are also missing the opposite to the Libertarian-Liberal played by Sami a few elections ago which would a socially conservative but economically interventionist character/party.

The ideology that is known as paternalistic conservatism or Christian democracy.

OOC: Final choice for me, I will be part of a Conservative party rather than create my own, now I will just hop right in after having already read the recent "things" going on.

1. Before taking any action, we'd like to know the Gallup poll on how Americans feel. I am not taking any action unless I know that the people of the United States are ok with military action this soon after the last war in Asia. However, we do propose the Lend-Lease British Amendment Act of 1939 which would open the same favorable conditions and protections to the British. Furthermore, we condemn and denounce the Chinese and officially declare our sympathies with France and Britain. I'd like to know who else may be in China's crosshairs so that we may proactively sign them on to the LLA.

2. Very good, nothing to do here. We are happy to not be in a deficit and we look forward to paying off the debt.

3. Push it through as the National Infrastructure Modernization Act (NIMA) of 1939 and expect a grand majority for this plan. As stated before, Mrs. Reur is invited by President Hillsbury and Vice President Trebuano to the bill signing.

@Reagan04 Both bills pass. News has just reached that China has just re-annexed Korea.

 

The People are hesitant about another costly war in Asia, but would support it if we were attacked.

(Remind me: was Korea independent?)
