Biography: (Minimum 2-3 paragraphs)

Born on January 5, 1985, Olivia Gayle Patterson was a bright and hot-headed child. Her father, a Nashville music executive, was a gentle and understanding disciplinarian. Hardly ever tough on his children, he brought them to respect the family values his parents taught him, and to love the country music industry. Her mother, a mother at heart, worked part-time as a high school softball coach and guided her children along a path that steered them through good education. Throughout grade school, Olivia kept straight As and passed on to high school. As a sophomore, she helped establish and lead a school wide Republican Party, and at times openly argued with some of her more liberal-minded teachers. Graduating in 2003, she majored in law at Yale, and helped found and chair the Conservative Student Union, drawing hundreds of members at Yale, Harvard, and other Ivy League schools. The group traveled around the country, speaking at various events and rallies and drawing substantial crowds. Emerging as a leading voice for conservative youth, she briefly served on a youth advisory council council for Fake McCain campaign. In 2008, she started TrueAmerica.com, a website that pushed right-wing policy and organized rallies at various schools and parks. Drawing big names like Fake Sean Hannity and others to publish pieces on her website, it became one of the biggest and most-visited conservative webpages. In response to the 2008 election of Fake Barack Obama, she gained nationwide attention as members of her group held a mock-funeral for the United States at a park in Washington DC.

After graduating, she travelled back and forth between Washington and Nashville continued publishing on TrueAmerica.com and appeared on various radio and television shows between 2010 and 2012. Becoming a close confidant of figures like Fake Mark Levin and Fake Rush Limbaugh,, she spoke harshly in opposition of gay marriage, abortion, and other social issues. Speaking out in favor of candidates like Fake Chris Christie, Fake Ron Paul, and Fake Rick Santorum, she refused to support Fake Mitt Romney for president in 2012, drawing backlash from party establishment figures. Publishing a scathing attack on Fake Romney in July of 2012, attacking his weak support amongst amongst Tea Party and citing his failures at Bain Capital, and claiming that he was the party of the corrupt elite. Eventually, though, she begrudgingly came around to Romney and threw her support behind him over the "raving lunatic" that was Fake Barack Obama after the convention. Her legions of fans at TrueAmerica.com began a viral online campaign to "retake the Republican Party". Pushing TrueAmerica candidates into races across the country and propping itself up with grassroots donations, the 2012 election proved fickle in comparison to large PACs and the RNC, electing just three candidates in California to the state legislature, and one house candidate in Georgia. Searching for a way to bide time, she joined CNN as a legal analyst and contributor, she became one of the few conservative voices on the network, garnering national attention for her on-air spats with the likes of Jake Tapper, Wolf Blitzer, and various guests.

In 2014, she stepped back from her work at TrueAmerica.com to focus more on her role at CNN, passing on control of the website. While at CNN, she met her husband, Tom Newfield, who was a field reporter at the network. After marrying in January of 2014, their first daughter was born in December. After being temporarily suspended from the network in January of 2015 after throwing a pen at another panelist, she toned down her rhetoric before exiting the network to serve as the Press Secretary for Fake Chris Christie's 2016 campaign for president. When he dropped out, she joined the Wolf campaign as a surrogate and continued to appear on various shows and at events in the lead up to the 2016 Election. A clip of her went viral at the time on Twitter when she heard of the results in Wisconsin, jumping out of her chair and cheering like a baseball game.

Buying a large house in the suburbs of Nashville in 2017, she landed a job at Fox News, filling in for various hosts and taking part in debates. Temporarily reviving her involvement at TrueAmerica.com, she published a series of columns calling for an investigation into the Fake Clinton campaign, in 2016, citing corruption and an attempted "smear campaign to discredit and tie President Wolf to Russia". However, she once again left the website to spend more time with her family. Her second daughter was born in the summer of 2017, however not long after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Forced to undergo chemotherapy, she stepped back from her position at Fox in 2018. Her husband and children by her side, she battled the cancer into 2019. By the summer of that year, her cancer went into remission and she landed a hosting role at Fox. Flying to and from Washington in the evenings to host Fox Tonight at midnight, she hosted the show for a little under three months in 2019 before accepting a position as White House Press Secretary. Taking the role after two relatively inactive secretaries, she made a commitment to hold a briefing every day. Making headlines for her combative and no-nonsense approach, she frequently attacked individual reporters and political figures and turned the briefings into a mini campaign rally for the President, unleashing attack after attack and doing questions left and right, so much that many in the news were beginning to call the art of question dodging to "pull a Newfield". Defending the President to the death, at times she would kick reporters out if she deemed their questions a waste of time or "taking part in the Deep State witch hunt". Drawing acclaim from the right and harsh criticism from the left, she exited the post following President Wolf's death, and instead announced a campaign for the Sixth district, which her home was narrowly located in. Riding off the popularity of Wolf, she sailed through the primaries and held a consistent lead in the polling above her democratic opponent, and the campaign drew little attention nationwide as Olivia picked up the seat by over 60% of the vote. Skeptical of Nathaniel Richardson, she tweeted consistently throughout the period between the election and inauguration day, calling for a "new era of Republican politics" and that she would be a "voice of the people" in the house.
Other Info:

Married to Thomas Newfield since 2014
Has two daughters

General Policy Positions

Economy: Strongly supportive of whatever Wolf or any Wolfist candidate proposes relatively blindly, if she deems things troublesome she'll look into it on her own.

Gun Rights: Strongly pro-gun, aired several MTG/Kemp level ads with guns during the campaign. Not to the level of harassing shooting survivors, though.

Abortion: Supports a nationwide replica of heartbeat/Texas laws. Privately wants Roe v Wade overturned, however has the instinct to know that will get her obliterated even in Tennessee.

Foreign Policy: Extremely hawkish, calls for outright intervention in Venezuela, Cuba. Strongly supportive of a tough stance on China, and openly touts (to liberals) xenophobic positions on Israel-Palestine.

BLM: Wants BLM, Antifa designated as domestic terrorist threats. Generic Wolfist plank about police and radical leftists burning down cities.

Education: Extremely outspoken against critical race theory, wants some sort of 'patriotic education' bill passed in the future.

Other:

Believes that the confederate flag is a symbol of southern heritage, similar to someone like MTG.

Hey everyone! I haven't been active recently, cause school and stuff, but I will be more active going forward. I promise. I don't really know what to have Frank do or how to be a good political rper, so still figuring that out and all.

Anyway, I'm thinking of making a new character (I got rid of the Sikh guy because another Indian-American is already running in Wisconsin, and I didn't really want to cannibalize) and he's basically an archeologist ex-professor who was knocked from his position of influence and respect by cancel culture at an Ivy League. He's not in politics for more legitimate reasons that I'm still working out.

I have a few questions for anybody that could help: What do you think would be a good job for him? I was thinking maybe Secretary of Education (or previously secretary of education, idk he's kinda old), and with my very limited level of experience in this RP, could I have someone be a cabinet member? Also, would someone who is an espouser of evolution and very pro-science be able to rise to power in the GOP? Less than 50% of Republicans believe in it so I wasn't sure. Also does Fauci count as pre-Reagan, or is he an open character model?

Thank you everyone who can answer this!

For things that Loloma could do, first I think he should give Rogers a reply to the email about the anti-gerrymandering bill. Unless I missed your reply. But I don’t recall seeing it.

Also, Loloma could write another bill in the meantime...something small and symbolic like making Indigenous People's Day a federal holiday could help him build the prominence and platform needed to make him the go-to Representative on native issues, giving him a springboard to put forth bigger, more substantial legislation. I think the smartest move for him is to try to build his national profile. Another thing that would help with that would be to write posts that have him speak in native issues events in states other than his own, maybe with groups like the National Conference of American Indians.

Speaking of the NCAI, their "Policy Resource Center" website (https://www.ncai.org/prc) would be a good resource for coming up with bill ideas for Frank, as well as the NCAI's wiki page which lists some of the things they're working on.

How would the various members of Congress feel about a bill that creates a special tax cuts for new businesses where the cuts slowly fade into nothingness? For example, new businesses start with a 10% cut in their first year, 9% in their second, and so on until they are paying the typical tax amount.

Paulson would support it, but only if she specifically could write a part of the bill that would safeguard against companies unincorporating and reincorporating to repeatedly receive the cut. Her priorities on tax policy are (A) lower taxes and (B) simplify the tax code to eliminate loopholes and cheaters. A cut like that definitely does (A), but she is somewhat concerned about the effect these cuts would have on (B).

Rogers, as always, could be convinced one way or the other on it depending on how it all falls in the grander scheme of his personal ambitions. He would probably share a few of Paulson's concerns, but to a lesser degree.

Gundersen, my Senate hopeful, would be highly supportive. Since all of the Dairy Dan's franchisees incorporate independently, it would be a massive win for his family business, as new restaurants would have more profits to pass on to his family members who sit on the board.

Martha Prendergast, the other Senator I just applied for, if accepted, would be undecided and would have a discussion with her husband on how it directly affected their state before she would know for sure.

Mattox would be more than willing to work with Paulson and Rogers, especially regarding loopholes.

Anyway, I'm thinking of making a new character (I got rid of the Sikh guy because another Indian-American is already running in Wisconsin, and I didn't really want to cannibalize) and he's basically an archeologist ex-professor who was knocked from his position of influence and respect by cancel culture at an Ivy League. He's not in politics for more legitimate reasons that I'm still working out.

I have a few questions for anybody that could help: What do you think would be a good job for him? I was thinking maybe Secretary of Education (or previously secretary of education, idk he's kinda old), and with my very limited level of experience in this RP, could I have someone be a cabinet member? Also, would someone who is an espouser of evolution and very pro-science be able to rise to power in the GOP? Less than 50% of Republicans believe in it so I wasn't sure. Also does Fauci count as pre-Reagan, or is he an open character model?

Thank you everyone who can answer this!

Republicans accept everyone as long as you do you shtick about ivy league cancel culture from now and then.

Hiya! I'd just like to clarify on some things as I'm thinking of applying for this RP:

1. Are new players (I'm new to this RP, but I'm experienced in other areas) allowed to RP as Senators?

2. Do we just need to fill out the application and await approval to get started?

Thanks in advance!

1) Generally we prefer that new players start out as Representatives

2) Pretty much, just a warning though, sometimes it can take a while for applications to get accepted, either because the application will receive comments that need to be accounted for, or because we as admins just might a while to get to reviewing the application due to either stuff happening in the RP we need to discuss or because we're busy IRL

No problem, looking forward to seeing the application!

I see, but that second point is of course understandable. Just curious but would events like the dot-com bubble (economic recession in the late 90s, early 2000s caused by a mistrust in dot-com, or internet companies due to their status as a new and thus risky investment) have happened?

Yup, generally all events Pre-2017 happened the same as IRL just with the [not-version] of any people taking there place post-Reagan
