A Second Revolution [OOC, Open, 1935 PT, signups]

Postby North American Communist Republics » Tue Dec 18, 2018 5:25 am

A SECOND REVOLUTION


The USSA (United Socialist States of America) was once an idea in the minds of a few men and women hoping to free themselves and others from the yoke of the monopolies which had reigned America since the late 1800s. Long hours, small wages and harsh conditions tormented the average factory worker, while the robber baron boogeymen above them continued to soar into unprecedented power, all with the power of the American Dollar, grown on the backs of tired and hungry workers. Soon the USA as it was then would reach a breaking point. The Great War would erupt in 1914, and the US was flung into the conflict by the monopolies in a bid to make as much money off the war. Fierce contraptions, from innovative canvas biplanes with fast engines and powerful machine guns to some of the very first armored fighting vehicles were rushed into production in order to sell to Entente forces in bulk, at the cost of those at the assembly lines. Meanwhile over a million men would be drafted into this new war, armed with rifles built by the blood and sweat of wage slaves, and outfits of cotton from gins manned by women 12 hours straight. The US would see tremendous losses over in Flanders, where the German positions would eventually be overrun, at the cost of tens of thousands of American lives. Those who survived till the end of the war during 1918 would come back to a decadent United States. Factory workers had broken their hands operating the machinery that would build weapons for hours on end, with no pay to compensate for the toil the put into their 'jobs.' It was around this time that the 1918 election rolled around. Eugene Debs, candidate of the CPUSA, and one of the men who dreamed of the USSA, won an overwhelming number of electoral votes, as well as the majority of the population. A controversial error in the voting process would however hand the presidency to a candidate more obedient to the monopolies' whim. Understandably, people were outraged, and civil war erupted. Returning soldiers from Europe, many of which still armed with bayonets and rifles would join the rebel cause, an act of revenge against the old order for sending them to die for the sake of profit. With overwhelming public support, and the backing of a significant portion of the army, the rebels eventually drove the old order's forces into Mexican territory, where a revolution of its own was in full swing, where were Zapata's southern armies clashed with the crumbling republic. The now red America quickly intervened in the Mexican Revolution on the side of Zapata, to chase after the last of the Federalists and to secure their southern flank. By the civil wars' conclusion in 1922, Mexico and the USA were effectively under the same banner of Eugene Debs' forces. The D.C. Convention of the same year would formalize he creation of the USSA, a country that spanned from Alaska to Yucatan, and a country where the people were truly free. Zapata and his supporters were rewarded political positions in the newly created Mexican states, but they would still have to submit to Washington. Despite this, the Mexicans remained in their positions and all was quiet. Revolution had been achieved, and with it, peace.

That was, until 1926, where Debs would suddenly die of heart failure. A power struggle between multiple factions of the CPUSA would emerge, and after much 'political' bloodshed, William Foster stood on top as the party's new leader, and therefore, the nation. He pursued vastly different policies from Debs, like the first 5-year plans,political purges, an American gulag and the rapid industrialization of the south. He By 1930, he had effectively created a cult of personality around himself by silencing political opponents in the party, and had created a living hell for the people below him, by forcing them to work a gunpoint to 'rebuild America.' He soon stepped too far in 1933, when he declared Zapata's Mexican communist 'revisionist traitors' and sent out death squads against them. Terror reigned the streets of Mexico that year. This outraged the Mexican population, who eventually boiled over in January of 1935, beginning the Second Revolution. Zapata who luckily survived the purges against him, ammassed militias out of the angry populace, armed them with weapons, and staged a coup in Mexico City, there delcaring the Mexican People's Republic, against the tyranny of Foster. Now North America is ready to bleed again.


Now that that long introduction is out of the way, here's the standard application:
Code: Select all
Nation Name:
Which side supporting (USSA or Mexico):
How much men to send(please send at most 20,000 people, less if your country is small. Also specify what kind of soldiers/not soldiers these are, examples would be armor forces, militia, supply convoys):
Reason:


Now for some rules:
1.The roleplay begins on Febuary 1st, 1935. Actions earlier than this are banned.
2.OP's word (mine) is absolute.
3. Actions should take a reasonable amount of time. No teleporting soldiers.
4.I will be roleplaying both as the Mexicans and the Americans.
5.The war is not to spill out of the country.

Nation Name: Ausinia
Which side supporting (USSA or Mexico): Mexico
How much men to send(please send at most 20,000 people, less if your country is small. Also specify what kind of soldiers/not soldiers these are, examples would be armor forces, militia, supply convoys): Militia, mostly men but 100 of old British Tanks will also be present. No more of a navy then required to protect the militia in coming. 4,000
Reason:

Being nuetral during the First World War, and escaping Nazi oppressing by holding their valuables and stockpile of weapons, we had seen what oppression does to a nation’s people. Wanting to avoid that again on another continent. Our people had began liking Mexican People’s Republic and less the USSA. Quickly sending a telegram asking if Mexico would like assistance, they await the answer...

Well the Enabling Act was passed in 1933, so I guess you're accepted. Also, do keep in mind that both sides are communist, just different flavors of it. Considering your nation is socialist, an additional reason could be to help the workers' revolution along. Your history factbooks are either incomplete or pretty vague, so please correct me. I'd also like to know where your nation is located, your factbook says 'by the Eastern Sea.' What is the Eastern Sea?

Sorry I didn’t see this post. Please ignore pretty much all my dispatch’s, I’m working on fixing those ASAP. The eastern sea is a (outdated) regional term, so o,ease ignore it, on earth I am located in sort of north-Poland-south-Lithuania. If you need any other information on the time period, let me know.
