Upon your orders, Generals deploy 16,000 American volunteers to the Ottoman lands. Sadly though, we haven't been much of a help by sending our high-tech technology over. Ottomans worked with our Generals to provide our troops a line to hold against the Russians utilizing natural geological structures. There is no hope of advancing at this moment, as technology is slim in the region and we don't have accurate numbers yet.

Also, 32,000 other American troops are sent as volunteers to Sweden and Germany to prepare for defenses.

 

Advisers are sent to Germany and Sweden to begin dig-in defenses. However, due to a hurricane in the Atlantic, we can not ship over many military supplies until the next year.

 

Naval Advisors that somehow survived the general purge of incompetence have created massive delays in naval preparation.

 

Our allies in Europe begin military-themed movements, as Britain moves to reinforce their African border with Russia.

 

Decolonization has not yet happened in this timeline.

 

State of the Union for Election of 1956

Foreign Affairs: Russia and China have a super alliance, same with League of Nations and American Alliances. For reference, Russian borders are pre-our timeline-WW1 Russian borders plus Eastern Turkey, Iraq, Kuwait, and Western Iran, and Chinese expand all the way to border Russia through owning East Iran.

Military: Our military is active. Some of our military is in Pacific Bases, while others are either at home or volunteering in Europe. Our navies are having terrible planning issues.

Economy: The economy stops declining, though remains static.

Trade: Trade grows, especially military trade, boosting our economy.

Budget: Our budget is currently unbalanced, but it has no debt. Our budget consists of the income of 40% taxes 50% tariff , and 10% overseas territories/canals, and the expenditure of 70% military 15% gov. upkeep 20% infrastructure and 5% deficit growth. (SD: 15)

Social Harmony: The country is united against a possible threat.

Immigration: Immigration levels decline more.

Mood of the people: People are beginning to prepare for a doomsday scenario, both militarily and economically.

Key Issue to Defend in Theoretical Debate:

Platform (see State of the Union):

President Dan Cruz announces he will run for a term of his own

46

Conservative

Florida

Sec. of State Ron Reynolds (California)

Foreign Policy: I will be petitioning Congress for an increase in soldier count as well as building more planes, tanks, and ships. The fact is that we are nearly under assault and it's time we bolster our allies in order to protect the homeland. It would be imprudent to shift administrations when this and that of my late predecessor have been setting the nation up for success and security. We cannot back down in the face of global evil and I refuse to allow us to do so. Russia and China may be powerful, but our Grand Alliance has them militarily and economically outgunned and we can't forget that. The Secretary of the Navy has been ordered to increase rigorous training exercises to exert Pacific Dominance against the Chinese menace. We will be greatly working with Japan and Australia to defend against the Pacific Chinese threat.

Economic Policy: Any major shift in policy right now would be ill-advised. Our Trade boost has been a boon and we can't afford to throw that away, the same can be said of the total denationalization of our economy as we have moved toward Liberty and prosperity. Taxes should remain at their current level, however, war bonds will soon be introduced to better fund the military as that is by far the most important facet of this election. Our strong economy is what buoys America and that means Capitalism. We are the embodiment of Freedom, the Shining Beacon of Freedom for our allies and enemies to see. We won't sacrifice that. We will attempt to keep the budget balanced, but some large expenses may be incurred soon and National Security must currently take first priority.

Social Policy: We will utilize the people's unity in a state of despair to show them the strong and stable leadership which has and will keep this nation safe. This administration is the stable choice for the trying times ahead and for an America that is united in what it believes and how it believes it, we present the strongest American choice for the election. The people's fears are felt and shared, but courage is not the absence of fear, but rather overcoming it, and By God America will be known as the most courageous nation on the planet by the end of this saga.

Electoral Strategy: We will campaign and stable leadership of the President which has garnished a +16 approval rating which is never a bad thing and should assist us in Congress and keeping the Liberals and Socialists at bay who both represent a rock in the boat that would undermine the most secure position possible for the United States, which is something we simply cannot afford.

Name and office: Senator Adam Natesh

Age: 42

Party: Libertarian

Resident state: Texas

VP nominee: VP Jorge Salvador (Hispanic Male)  (LIB-TX)

Key Issue to Defend in Theoretical Debate: Defense Strategies

Platform (see State of the Union):

National Strength: There is no reason we cannot move up in this list except for weak attempts at it by both the Conservatives and Liberals, both of which as you can see failed.

Military Strength: More bases, more bases, more bases! We are in a time where  both Russia and China could dominate the world and create a world war, we need to be strong and prepared for the threats, whereas the Conservatives have failed to finish making bases in Germany in 4 years and the Liberals haven't even made it as far as the Conservatives had in base making in the past.

Foreign Affairs: We have consistently failed at condemning and taking down the Russian and Chinese regimes. Sanctions oh lord sanctions and rebel supporting, Try hard to stay anonymous except for the sanctions, and organize a League of Nations that would actually act on the issue at hand here, unlike the ones that have been organized in the past.

Military: We must be on high alert. Conservatives have attempted to take the high road on the military, but no longer even mention the military in their campaigns.  The Liberals have done more with the military but are still weak on the position. We must take a strong stance on this and continue to grow our military.

Economy: Help small business, and small companies.

Trade: Denationalize the trade industry further, maybe work with the Liberals and make a bipartisan bill for denationalization.

Budget: We are in a good spot with this, and we should keep it that way.

Social Harmony: No Comment.

Immigration: Conservatives love to use immigration as a scare tactic against the hardworking people of America, and the Liberals take a more ignorant stance on this issue by pretending everything is fine. The issue is a moderate issue and is not important at the moment, but we should watch the issue closely.

Mood of the people: No Comment.

Party Power: We will attack the Conservatives and moderate Liberals, and try to bring them in to our cause.

Popularity of the Incumbent: He is good, but we can do better with a Libertarian candidate being elected.

This has gotten really dry, which is why I haven't been the most active with this as much. I plan to get through to the end, but people including me need(ed) time to be creative again.

 

The election should be run sometime in the next week.

Idk. It just seems like there aren't as many polarizing issues that lead people like me and @Reagan04 to hang onto every word here anymore. 

It's this whole gloom of war, almost like no matter what we do we're gonna lose and it isn't gonna matter. The silence of war is deafening the sim.

1956 Election

Welcome to the election of 1956! This election, the Nation is united together in absolute gloom. All anybody cares about are the War, the Economy, and Trade. If any of those things go wrong, then the country might be doomed in a tailspin. The future of the War looks gloomy, but in this eerie world, a strong leader must emerge.

Would you mind telling us how this new event way will happen?

 

Liberals celebrate their success and pledge to work with Conservatives in the House and Senate on common sense issues.

Well, I'm just simplifying the way events are done, at least for the span of the gloomy war.

 

@Reagan04

 

National Strength: We rank 2nd in the list of the top 10 countries: Russia, United States, Germany, China, Great Britain, France, Sweden, Mexico, Austria, Spain.

Military Strength: Our professional army is 80,000 men and 75 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.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Year 1957

 

 

Trade Events

 

Status: Increased trade, especially with military goods, with our allies. Virtually no trade with Russia and China. Slightly increased trade with the American continents that are not our immediate allies. Limited trade with African countries (breakup of Africa has not happened). Trade with Japan and allied Asian remnants is about average, with military goods as priority.

 

Event 1: Military advisers are warning that our trade with Africa is putting a severe risk on our trade escorts, knowing that that area of water is our weakest point. Should we abandon African trade, and instead focus more on other trade routes?

 

Event 2: European allies are requesting we focus more trade on them than our own two continents, in order to best prepare for the war.

 

Economic Events

 

Status: Stagnant economy, with most of the production being military or food.

 

Event 1: Our farmers make enough food for our country, though not enough to export to everyone. Should we enforce agricultural focuses to only export to certain countries, therefore limiting free trade?

 

Event 2: The military factories are still majority in the North, though Southern industries do have some military productions. Should we focus on building more military factories in different regions, or should we just leave it at the status quo?

 

War Events

 

Status: 16,000 in Ottoman defense, 32,000 in Germany/Scandinavia in terms of American involvement.

 

Ottoman defense: The southern front remains un-moved. The Russians carried out a surprise marine tactic in the Tuz Golu lake, capturing the lake and creating outposts on the western outskirts. They hold the western front.

image.png.26b8ca3ed1e2db2893e109ae3984b33a.png

 

Event 1: Following the surprise Russian tactic, very limited forces are on the pink line. If we move American forces, then we might weaken the rest of the line. Shall we deploy more volunteers to the new breach? We currently have 32,000 available for deployment.

 

Event 2: Some lawmakers in Congress are saying we should work with our allies to formally declare war; however, military advisers say we are not ready, and we would not be able to use our defense army.

 

Event 3: Utilize this event to focus on undiscovered technologies, army size, etc.

The Libertarians congratulate the President-Elect, and pledge that they will try very hard to work in bipartisan unison in the House with Democrats, Soc. Lab. politicians, and Conservatives alike. Natesh was to be elected to the House after losing in round 1, aswell as Salvador.

Liberals propose a new bill in Congress - to tie ourselves to our European allies. If one is declared war on, Congress is bound to vote on a declaration of war on those that were attacked. They hope that it will be voted in the coming weeks. They call on the President to ask the American Alliance to follow suit in their own countries. 

The Libertarians denounce the bill for one soul reason: It doesn't give choice. What if they are being attacked because they commit things like war crimes, or crimes against humanity? What if they are declared war on for good reason? This bill is not in any american interests, unless you want us to take attention off of fighting off the real enemies, Russia and China, and make sure they don't attack ANYONE, ally or not.

The Socialist Labor Party concurs with this sentiment.

Just "amend"  the bill to say that if our European allies are attacked unprovoked, or actions are taken by foreign powers that threaten national security we would be compelled to respond. If countries are suspected of human rights violations or provoking a conflict, the United States reserves the right to judge the situation accordingly. (I haven't read this whole thread but is there a "NATO" like alliance in this RP?)  

 

PS: don't post on the forums really, just lurk but I had nothing better to do.
