Political Crises: Which path will you take

Recommended Posts

us-flag-21-apr-2017.jpeg.jpg?itok=TGwBeaGn

In the upcoming elections, the previous biparty political system started to crack, and multiple parties have come to fruit trying to take control. 

The country, further divided has broken into further divisions, and the two previous parties, Republican and Democratic parties are starting to make alliances to try to defeat the newly created parties. The country can go through the following paths

Republican-Democratic League:

donkey-fighting-elephant-circ-dwg.jpg

This uneasy alliance between the Republicans and Democrats was created in an attempt to eliminate the newly created powers that have gained many followers and allies. If this league wins, their will be no change in US held lands.

 

Zelevas Project: 

1506061379-flag.jpg

Number of powerful families have aligned to create a new system, under the leadership of Zelevas, one of the richest people in the United States. Under the Zelevas Project, if won, they would reform the United States under a Central Monarchy, blaming the loss of the East Coast on slow bureaucracy and weak public, they promise the American people they would drastically change the government to ensure such devestating losses will not happen again. The founders of this group are also supported largely by the biggest corporations inside the United States.  

 

Union of Socialist States of America

The US Communist Party blames the revolts against the United States for its weakend state that allowed the loss of the East Coast and they firmly believe that the ultra-capitalistic system is to blame for the revolts throughout the East Coast. The smallest of the four parties, they still have gained massive gains in popularity, even with the Republican-Democratic League and the Zelevas Project constantly campaigning against them.

 

Systems Alliance

latest?cb=20180202051242
The Systems Alliance believes the current path is to push for massive research, peaceful coexistent with the other world powers and pursue of Neutrality to continue it's research, primarily into Space technology and in hopes of eventually colonizing Mars. The Alliance is highly supported by Research companies, scientists and pro-peace advocates, since the other parties have shown beliefs that interventionism is the only way to protect the nation.  

 

Main goals of each party:

Republican-Democratic Party wishes to restore the glory of the United States and it's naval power to protect global trade. They will drastically focus all resources on rebuilding the US Navy to send its influence into the world and ensure its economic security goals are met. They will also support any policies that allow Free Trade and Corporations staying on top.

 

Zelevas Project's main goal is to create a Central Monarchy, with imperialistic goals, create alliances to create a economic boom that would eventually fund research into space to find more resources to exploit. The God of Commerce is the major influence in their philosophy, and with promises of more control to the Corporations to create their own mini-empires, many companies have donated heavily into the Zelevas Project

 

Union of Socialist States of America(USSA) The US Communist Party, wants to create the Union of Socialist States of America and to end privatization. If they win, they will plan to secure their positions within the current US borders until they can financially and materially supply revolutions across the globe.  

 

Systems Alliance wishes to create a Federation of states that would focus heavily on research. They have publicly stated that if selected, the United States governance would be disbanded and a Federation would take its place, and the main goal is protect the current citizens under its rule, allow free trade, and take a non-intervention path and claim Neutrality to avoid any global wars. Their path would be one of the more peaceful options.

 

With that, only time will tell what will happen.

(OOC: You can influence the path by supporting a party. If you support a party, it will increase the chances of that party winning and etc.)

An official response from the Witch Council

When questioned by RNN reporters on the matter, Eva-Beatrice of the Witch Council issued the following response:

"Although Rokkenjima doesn't involve itself with American affairs most of the time, let it be known that we support the current bi-party system. It may be true that both parties are complete failures in getting anything useful accomplished, but it is still better than the alternatives. Corporations should not be allowed to hold anymore power. That would only allow corruption and anti-consumer practices. Communist regimes cannot be allowed to exist anywhere, especially in America. Rokkenjima may take military action if the USSA is established to quickly and decisively snuff out Communism in North America. Lastly, the Systems Alliance would only further weaken the United States, and open them up to being taken advantage of further. That is our official stance on the matter."

Zelevas Project:(+9%)(39%)

Riots broke out after the Republican-Democratic controlled congress tried to pass a law to outlaw the USSA and Zelevas parties. The FBI has suspicions that the Zelevas Project used a smear campaign against the republican-Democratic League that incited protesting that led to the riots, cities across California and Texas experienced the heaviest. The Union of Socialists States of America and the party that represents the idea had also lost 99% of its supporters after the rioting, with the majority of them being arrested and the rest fleeing the USSA party and joining up with the System's Alliance. 

Members of the System's Alliance has officially condemned the acts of the rioters, however they also state the riots could of been avoided if the corrupt status quo did not try to outlaw their main rivals. The System's Alliance members will be working with relief teams to provide aid to the injured and cleaning out the mess left after these major riots across the country.

After a good amount of deliberation Britannia would enter into the USA elections on the side of the current standing government. With the recent protests and the need to avoid a war on the continent between the USA and Britannia has allowed Britannia to subtly influence the election on the side of the current government. Using various network-masking devices and other programs to avoid being caught Britannia has entered into this foreign race.

PUBLIC STATEMENT FROM THE SYSTEMS ALLIANCE PROJECT

Mass-Effect-Systems-Alliance-Navy-Decal-Sticker__66249.1511151322.jpg?c=2&imbypass=on

Quote

"Today, our intelligence committee has detected large amount of activity that we believe is an attempt to influence the upcoming elections, which has made us reevaluate our current Foreign Policies, we do not have definite proof of foreign interference as every trace took us all over the globe, but there seems to be a coordinated attempt to assist the Republican-Democratic League and to ensure progress halts within the current borders of the United States. If our suspicions are correct, we cannot take a firm neutral position that we previously envisioned, and America must increase its diplomatic and economic pressure around the globe to drag out conspirators to interfere in our elections. For progress, we cannot allow the status quo to continue, nor can we afford the Zelevas Project to win the majority of Congress. On election week, remember to vote for equality, progress and pushing the American continent into the world's leading Scientific heaven and Economic prosperity. Vote for your local System's Alliance Candidate for a chance to overcome our corrupt systems, and to finally close the loopholes in our election cycles. Lets become the world's push for the Final Frontier, Space!"

Statement made by: System's Alliance Spokesperson Jessica Hopkins.
