Senate Bill 05 (Nay, see note): "The bill consists of the following measures: Potentially raising tariffs on colonial nations, public condemning allies, pulling out of military agreements, embargoing nations, sending a military force to guarantee fair elections and referendums, and the ability for the President to declare war based on the fact that they have colonies. The President has the final say about every of the above measures."

 

House Bill 06 (Aye): "The bill applies only to prisons directly under federal jurisdiction: Those under the age of 18 can not face the death penalty or solitary confinement, all private prison contractors currently working a contract with the Federal government are to have their contracts run out and not renewed at the end of their lease. New Federal prisons are to be built to hold those released from the private institutions."

While no longer expressly unconstitutional, we are not happy with the Congress making this sentiment broadcast to our allies and will therefore still oppose SB 5, that being said, more members will be inclined to support the bill with the final clause. Constitutionalists remain totally opposed to it while some Moderates and Evangelicals might vote for it in small numbers.

The Liberal whip will not be in action for Senate Bill 05. Senators and Representatives can vote their conscience. They are particularly worried about the fact that Congress cannot restrain much action on behalf of the Executive. Liberals are expected to be split mostly down the middle.

John Turner IV : With our amendment, the Law won't be declared unconstitutionnal, and we maybe sent a message of what the President should or can do if colonialism takes too long.

As president I would agree with Conservative President and not be using anything which is on the current bill, but let's suppose that today a "totalitarian" dictatorship regime arrives in Europe, this would be one of the few cases where this law would be usefull, to give the president, an agreement from Congress to stop some things we should call "Humanity Crimes" which is a special and particular case, but that can exists (OOC : excepted not yet in this perfect RP 😛).

About second bill : I'm pleased that the Conservatives chose a path to end private prisons. This is something on which I have to congratulate them.

But the most important, the most important is to END death penalty for youths, this is not christian, this is not moral and this is not freedom.

I'm sad that the Socialist's bill hadn't received enough supports to be implemented first, their project was really ambitious, but as the Conservative goes in the same way, I will gladly support.

This is incorrect. Elijah Johnson is the Governor of Tennessee and Jack Conway is the Governor of Texas.

New York Gubernatorial: Fmr. Attorney General of New York Nita Faust, 48, announces that she will run for the Governorship of New York under the Liberal ticket. She will blast the Winchester "domination" of the state party and campaign for a fair and free process for all. She will campaign on bringing healthcare to the downtrodden and poor in New York. 

California Gubernatorial: State Liberal Senator Whip Michael Trust, 64, announces he will run for California governor. He says that years under Conservative dominance have led the state to run into deep trouble with education and needs someone that will spend more on public education in the state.

Texas Gubernatorial: Austin Mayor Veronica Hendricks, 54, broadcasts that she will run for the Liberal nomination for Texas governor. She says that the constant bickering at the national level between Socialists and Conservatives have made both parties toxic and leaves only the Liberals as a sensible party.

Tennesee Gubernatorial: Will not run a candidate.

Minnesota Gubernatorial: Minneapolis Mayor Benjamin Halston, 38, announces that he will seek the governorship of Minnesota. He announces he plans to visit every county in the state, and will serve for all the people.

Governor Rockford shall seek re-election, largely on the record established by now-Vice President Buckley and the popular President.

The CACP easily endorses Governor Blake.

Governor Conway, with great enthusiasm announces a bid for a second term, doing so with grace for having one of the nation's highest approval ratings among major politicians

Governor Johnson, the fighter he is, is ready to barrel down for another brawling election

Governor Amundsen is not interested in a 3rd term as he believes in citizen Government. Upstart Evangelical Sophomore Congresswoman Michele Dockman is the early frontrunner. She was inspired by then Speaker Slater to get into politics and is a disciple of the President.

The more expansive and elaborate your campaigning is (basically your platform+what you goals are+anything else you do), as well as your attacks on your opponents (mainly, attack on their party's stances), the higher chance you have in the next set of polls.

I didn't betray values on which Conservatives agree with us.

In some ways, I managed to respect both our program, and being the bridge between political sides which strongly clash.

But I do believe, that the Libertarian party, better standed for a tolerant society along the Socialists than with the Liberals.

We offered to work with them on society, we used our representativity to make Congress a more powerfull places where the President, including us if we win, will never have ANY majority.

I'm proud that we've been there to support our opponents when it was smart to do. Now electors of NY can see that I'm an open person, who will be taking into account everything they have to say even if we would have different appreciations, this is the crucial, libertarian difference now.

A moment of pause to the crowd.

4 years ago, when I started, Liberals and Conservatives were neck and neck.

Now, due to their division indeed, we're SECOND IN OPINION POLLS!

Crowd enthusiast

We're the official opposition in NY IN VOTES!

It's also why I want to announce that if a Liberal or a Socialist wants to join us in a ticket, we will accept that this person be the next Lt Governor and we will support his or her election. @Kingthero

 

And, do you know what will be my plan?

The same than 4 years ago.

The only thing I have to change is to implement quickly our new legislation on jail.

 

Why? Because we haven't signed free trades with Canada.

We haven't developped our harbour enough for international trade.

We haven't scrapped enough taxs for agricultor.

We haven't offered a state support in taxs exemption to wine producers.

We have implemented the a legislation on jail just because the House was willing to pass it, and both Socialists and Libertarians are the first to congratulate for it.

We still have to extend an ambitious healthcare policy.

 

Economy

It's time to create jobs, not useless national debates.

-Devellop harbours exportations of NY and use state's influence to push free-trade agreements with Canada and others countries.

-Scrap taxs for agricultors' activity so that they can reduce alimentary prices for everybody.

-Allow agricultors and wine producers to borrow money to the state of NY.

-Allow a greater protection and push forward legislation for Building industry and mines' extraction is some located places far away of the habitations and natural reserves.

-Freeze bureaucracy's increase for the next years

 

Crimes

-Reduce taxs for humanitarian associations so that they can give time to rehabilitation

-Implement new Congress' legislation before the end of the term and support the federal movement.

-Increase rehabilitation's programs in jail such as the right to work

-Increase public broadcast to find back criminals (like research emissions) from the help of testimonies quickly after something like a rape or a murder happened (pre-amber alert)

 

Foreign Relationships

-Highly increase good relationships and economic partnership with Ontario and Quebec

 

Healthcare

-Allow private sector larger than currently

-Submit to the state the possibility that a voluntary social insurance fund based on people's will and co-managed by different economic experts.

The more expansive and elaborate your campaigning is (basically your platform+what you goals are+anything else you do), as well as your attacks on your opponents (mainly, attack on their party's stances), the higher chance you have in the next set of polls.

New York Gubernatorial: Former AG Faust campaigns broadly across the state, focusing largely on bastions around Albany and New York City. She campaigns on a promise of bringing quality healthcare to New York and stifling crime that is plaguing the state. She pledges to lock up criminals and focus on making the state a better place to live.

California Gubernatorial: Trust is going to focus on bringing out the kind of people that delivered a 1st round victory to former President Lauss. He says he's a "straight-shooter kind of guy" from rural California that can bring Liberals to success at the state level. He slams the culture of corruption that radiates from Sacramento, saying that California needs new leadership that can lead it into a new future.

Texas Gubernatorial: Hendricks sees that she has a monstrous campaign ahead of her, and brings in all the heavy hands she can get from around the state to come and campaign on her behalf. She admits that the governor is popular and has done a lot for the state, but points out that simply because he's gotten some good things done, doesn't mean he has more to follow. She states that she sees nothing new coming from the governor's administration.

Minnesota Gubernatorial: Mayor Halston focuses on a bread and butter campaign that brings him to all parts of the state. He focuses on agriculture and the need to break up Big Ag that is beginning to stifle small farmers. He says that he has credibly run the city of Minneapolis for 5 years now, and he will bring that kind of leadership to the state as a whole. He focuses relatively little on the governor, simply stating that the governor is too conservative for the state as a whole.

Texas Strategy

Seeing his dismal poll numbers, Long sets out on a tour of the state to meet as many voters as possible, to try to convince them to vote for him, rather than his opponents. He attacks the Liberals as being ineffective, and unwilling to work with even moderate Socialists to beat Conservatives, and attacks Conservatives on their use of false Christianity, as an excuse to trample on the rights of Texan citizens. His platform pledges to eliminate regressive taxes like property, and sales tax, as well as instituting a statewide program to rebuild, and improve Texan infrastructure.

Tennessee Strategy

Thomas will not shy away from the Christian influences on his Socialist ideals, and uses his speaking experience from decades of preaching to help him in his campaign.

1978 Candidate Final Statements Phase

 

This section will allow for members of the same race to release their final statements, summing up how they would beat their final opponents.

 

New York Gubernatorial:

 

(S) Mario Marcantonio - Social Democrat - NYC Mayor 15%

 

(L) Nita Faust - New Way - Former State AG 23%

 

(C) Shelton Rockford - Moderate - Incumbent 41%

 

(Libt) John Turner IV - Libertarian - Senator 21%

 

In a close Liberal primary, Nita Faust beats Rosalie Winchester. An absence of Rockford on the campaign trail causes him to lose parts of his core base of support, though that might not matter with how split up his opposition is.

 

California Gubernatorial:

 

(S) Nina Grijalva - Social Democrat - Representative 15%

 

(L) Michael Trust - Loyalist - State Senator 34%

 

(C) Elinor Blake - Christian - Incumbent 51%

 

Opposition to Blake gains support, but unless the tides turn heavily, Blake has this election in the bag.

 

Texas Gubernatorial:

 

(S) Herbert Long - Libertarian Socialist - State Representative 9%

 

(L) Veronica Hendricks - Loyalist - Austin Mayor 32%

 

(C) Jack Conway - Christian - Incumbent 59%

 

Although Conway was missing on the campaign trail, he maintained heavy support in a state where he is very popular.

 

Tennessee Gubernatorial:

 

(S) Herman Thomas - Libertarian Socialist - Minister 24%

 

(L) John McDouglass - Secondary - Former AG 32%

 

(C) Elijah Lloyd Johnson - Christian - Incumbent 44%

 

Minnesota Gubernatorial:

 

(S) Elizabeth Lincoln - Democratic Socialist - St. Paul Mayor 17%

 

(L) Benjamin Halston - New Way - Minneapolis Mayor 51%

 

(C) Michele Dockman - Christian - Representative 32%

 

Benjamin beat Rolstad, and took a heavy lead due to Dockman's absence.
