I think people should probably take the time to check 1959 population figures before giving speeches. makes me feel I'm wasting my time by going through new york's 1959 budget to figure out what I want to change :/

This is very true, I (as president pro tempore) cannot object to any falsies he claims. BUT If another Senator were, then they could possibly get the congress to lose faith in the bill. Everyone makes mistakes though, so no harm no foul!

Official Name: The U.S. Government Internees Reconciliation and Redress Act



Overview: This bill seeks to grant reparations and redress for the victims of internment by the U.S. Government during World War II. This bill also serves to fully recognize our Government not only failed but proactively violated the protected rights of American Citizens under the U.S. Constitution.

Sponsor: Joseph Gorski Warszawski (R)
Co-Sponsors:


Section 1:
A. This bill seeks to grant reparations to Japanese Americans who had been interned by the United States government during World War II. In full recognition of the violations of the rights of American citizens by the U.S. Government.
B. This bill will grant reparations of $15,000 to individual survivors of the internment by the U.S. Government in the years during and following World War II. Furthermore, this bill will grant full refunds of burial services costs to be provided to the families of those who lost family members who died while in or after being interned in any of these camps.
C. This bill seeks to create a Committee on the Reconciliation and Mediation of U.S. Internees. This Committee will serve to analyze all cases seeking redress for loss of property by individuals and their families during the process of Internment by the U.S. Government. This Committee will assist in verifying and filing these claims.

This bill is then honorably presented to the Senate for consideration in order to at least in part begin the process of amelioration and reconciliation by our government to redress its wrongs against American citizens to improve the United States Law and is backed by Joseph Gorski Warszawski on (insert date)

In 1960 DC had a population of 763,956. Vermont had a population of 389,000. I am not sure what the problem is?

That's the metro. Which includes cities in Virginia, Maryland etc like Fairfax. Not the District itself. The data I am using is the 1960 census itself. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1960_United_States_census

I mean that's still closer to 800,000 than 700,000 and the last available census would have said 800,000. I will admit I thought that D.C. figures were being used were just the current ones, that are far closer to 700,000.

I know, my point is, had he used that figure, it would've gained a bit more sympathy because it is a lot more people, all he had to do was leave out the 'Metro Area' part XDDD

I didn't think that using exact numbers in the 1950's was exactly appropriate, and politicians aren't civil servants. They're politicians. They play with words. I don't think it's a massive problem to be called out on when I made a decision purposefully after going to the actual census itself. If a Senator would like to object by standing up and saying "Well actually it's more along the lines of 763,000." I am sure they can.

I thought that would be awfully egregious. Since it's straight up lying. Now that I would get called out for.

I'm waiting on questions, for your bill, if there are none, I suggest you move to end the debate and proceed to a vote.

Well as of January 1st, Fraser telegrammed him, so he's open to a meeting on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th. he's meeting with Senator Stark on the 6th and has his inaugural governor speech on the 7th.


On another note, Bradford is listed as a republican in the first post but the app listed him as a democrat, so IDK what we're going with.

Biography: Alexander was born in Cheynne, Wyoming, in the waning hours of July 8th, 1907, the firstborn of Reverend Paul Thomas Willmar (1880-1964) and his wife Paulette Hannah Willmar, nee Rossdale (1885-1990). He was delivered at the family's little house, down the street from the red sandstone church his father preached at, by an old family friend of his mother's family who was also a midwife. The same woman had delivered his mother and his uncles.

Alexander's mother's family were deeply ingrained into the fabric of the city, and indeed, the state. The Rossdales had been some of the first settlers of the Wyoming Territory, and Ogden Rossdale, Alexander's grandfather, was a prominent local politician and landowner, a man who had been middle-class in St. Louis but had built himself into something of a giant in Wyoming. So you can imagine his shock and, frankly, disdain when his daughter decided she wished to marry a nobody preacher from Kansas. However, his wife persuaded him to allow it, and so Alexander's parents were wed in 1926. Eleven months later, they bore their firstborn son.

From a very young age, it was expected that Alexander would become either a rancher and statesman like Ogden or a Reverend like Paul. The boy was sickly, however, and tended towards bookishness. He devoured the works of Shakespeare, Poe, and Lord Byron, but his favorites of all were the Gospels. As a young child, not yet a teenager, he resolved himself to become a minister like his father. And, as his depth of understanding of the Word grew, he found value and worth in his grandfather's work as a politician, seeing it as one of the best ways to influence the world to be more like Christ.

As a young man, he was noted by his fellows for both his gifts with wordplay and rhetoric, and the intensity of his convictions and beliefs, which he discussed with anyone who would listen. The calling of a Christian, he said, was to raise up one's fellow man, to promote equality and to share the wealth of the world with those in need. He began working as an assistant to his grandfather as a teenager, accompanying him to sessions of the State House and listening in, keeping notes for Ogden to go over later. At the same time, Paul tutored him to become a Reverend, and perhaps accelerated the process a bit for his beloved eldest son.

Alexander delivered his first sermon at FUMCC at the age of 16, on the need for charity not just as individuals, but as a society. Even at that tender age he was a firebrand. After he turned 18 he began his formal training to be a Reverend, and in 1929, at the age of 22, he was hired to preach alongside his father. The two of them were said to be the oddest pair to ever share a pulpit; Paul was gently-spoken and cerebral, deeply dissecting the meanings of verses and focusing on spiritual things. By contrast, Alexander was bombastic and emotive, preaching of deeds and actions.

In order to compliment his work as a Reverend, Alexander sought to become a statesman. So when his grandfather retired from the State Senate in 1930, he was seen as a natural successor to Ogdens work. Alexander sailed through the election with minimal opposition and joined the State Senate as a Democrat. As a State Senator, much of his focus was on the indigent and needy of Wyoming--he fought for full rights and enfranchisement for non-whites, and strongly supported the miner's unions and smaller farmers and businessmen of the state. During this time, he met Dolly Francis, a waitress at a restaurant he frequented. The pair had an instant connection, and after a brief courtship, they married in 1931. They have three sons: Paul Ogden (born 1932), Richard Theodore (born 1934), and Christopher Martin (born 1938).

Alexander was reelected to the Senate two times, in 1934 and 1938, before the Second World War broke out. Enraged over the attack on the country he loved, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and was assigned to the 9th Infantry Division. The 9th was deployed to the North African campaign, and fought alongside the British and Free French as they encircled Rommel in Tunisia.

In February 1943, Alexander's life changed again. During the Battle of Kassarine Pass, the Axis forces slowly pushed the 9th away from the key town of Thala. The 9th fought a costly, slow, strategic retreat, delaying Rommel's forces long enough for reinforcements to arrive. During the battle, Alexander and a fellow soldier were separated from the rest of the Division, pinned down by German fire. When the other man took a bullet through the chest, Alexander hefted him upon his shoulders and carried him, through a haze of gunfire, back to the main line. He took three bullets himself, in the right arm, left leg, and through the abdomen, and collapsed as soon as he was safely behind friendly lines.

Battlefield medicine was able to save Alexander's life, but he was no longer fit for combat. He was honorably discharged and sent home to Wyoming, where he was hailed as a war hero. He returned to his pulpit and spent the rest of the war whipping up money and support for soldiers, sending monthly packages to his old Division (among others) containing money and items donated by parishioners.

After the wars end, Alexander was content to remain a preacher, however, his friends and family pressured him into exploring a run against (not-Frank Barrett), at the time the sole Congressman from Wyoming. Alexander, sensing an opportunity to bring his platform to the national stage, declared his candidacy and sailed through the Democratic primary. His personal story and charisma were invaluable aids, allowing him to scrape out a narrow victory (51%-49%) against the incumbent.

In Congress, Alexander was a strong ally of President (not-Truman), supporting the executive's liberal policies--while still decrying the passage of Taft-Hartley and fighting against it tooth and nail. He also introduced an anti-lynching act in each Congress, despite it always being voted down.

In 1952, with the incumbent Democratic Senator retiring, Alexander was the natural choice to succeed him. He ran against the Governor of Wyoming, (not-Frank Barrett), who had previously been the Representative for Wyoming, and once more defeated him, winning 53% to the Governor's 47%.

In the Senate, Alexander has proven to be a reliable liberal warrior, continuing to introduce anti-lynching legislation and attempting to repeal Taft-Hartley twice. However, his lack of meaningful relationships with the rest of the Senate has stalled his efforts, forcing him to choose between compromise and his fight.

Other Info:
Ideology:
- Senator Stevens is considered one of the foremost liberals in the Democratic party, the latest in a long tradition of populist Democrats from the Plains and Mountain states. He believes in equality for women and non-whites, pointing to Wyoming and Montana's election of women Congresspeople and Governors as proof of his rightness. He supports strong unions and education, as key fronts in the battle against Communism.

On Communism and the Soviets, his views are somewhat out of the mainstream. He believes in a strategy of "readiness but not aggression", holding that the U.S. must be ready to engage the Soviets and Chinese wherever necessary but not that America must police the world for signs of Communism and stamp them out. This is reflective of his mostly domestic policies and ideas.

Flowerdell pulling out those numbers and slapping down that challenge! See, Elmar was right in vouching for the new guy. Pulling dates and times and numbers out like that both makes me feel intimidated and inspired. Very convincing argument. Picking at all the complaints. I would debate but I kinda agree with most of this so Imma just let the procedure happen and then motion for a vote at some point. Maybe one day we can get some civil-rights protections on the floor and I can be angry and vocal and persuasive as well.
