Washington
The US Political RP




"A lot has been said about politics, some of it complementary, but most of it accurate."

Eric Idle







The race for power continues. Candidates vie for the highest office in the land, gazes set on the oval office-while all around them, new schemes hatch, and plans are made. Statesmen seek to change the future of the country, politicians cut their deals, while the media will do anything for a prime scoop. In the core of a nation divided is a city always alight with ambition, where anyone has a shot at their dreams-and anyone can see them dashed.

Join us, then. Senator or Representative, Governor or Mayor, Broadcaster or General, all are welcome. Fight for your bills in Congress. Pander your way to electoral victory. Wrap the public around your little finger, as you fight to form the city in your own image.

A new generation of leaders, pundits, and politicians. Make your own, original character, join in the ever-changing landscape-and we'll see just how far you get.

All are welcome. All that is left is to fill out the application, and take your place in the Great Game.

The nation is ready for you. Don't keep her waiting.'


Rules


1- OP is Lord and the Co-OP's are the princes. Their word is law. Follow it.
2- No RL characters Or at least no celebrities. That's no Donald Trump. I knew you were aching to play Trump, but that's no-no. On this note, RL politicians post-Reagan do not exist, or have been replaced with generic stand-ins. Records and history are the same, including statistics, save in the places where player-characters have brought about a change.
3- Good quality IC and Frequent posting preferred. We know you are busy, and RL concerns come first-but make sure if you join, that you will stick around. A post per week or more is preferred, and try to keep them of good quality-one-liners will not go far.
4- Respect your fellow players. Play nice. If you don't have friends, you won't have fun.
5- No godmod/flawless/perfect characters Give them from flaws. No one has fun when everyone is perfect.
6-No cheat-edits Typos are one thing, but don't try to change what was done IC because you don't like it. You can appeal if you want to, but don't try to change what already happened.
7- If you are not sure if something is legal, ask OOC first. Always better to check-and there is limited leniency for things that are obviously bad.
8-No assassination attempts. You can probably look for a loophole there-don't. In essence, no use of extreme physical force against another player, or anything like poison. If you and another both agree, contact an OP, and it will be discussed-unilateral action is strictly forbidden.
9-No spite characters. You may hate Democrats, and want to make a Senator who will have scandals on them-don't. Complex characters are fine, but having your character actively sabotage their own party/demographic out-of-character is forbidden.
No metagaming. This takes two forms-first, using OOC knowledge that you have but your character could not in the IC, and second, attempting to "engineer" a character specifically to do something in relation to specific aspects of another character or a situation. Hiccups aside, keep OOC and IC separate. Similarly
11-Keep OOC comments out of the IC. We have a whole thread set aside just for that reason. Putting and leaving OOC comments in parenthesis degrades the quality of the RP, wholly OOC posts in the IC are right out. Bring up any issues in the OOC, or TG the OP.
12- Have fun! Misery is illegal.

This has been one heck of a year for politics, loyal viewers. Let's take a look at just what you missed...

When the primaries started, neither party knew just what it was doing. The Republicans were stacked head-to-toe, with half a dozen and more candidates vying for attention, and fighting on the stage, while their opposites in the Democratic Party struggled to put forward a competitor, with late-night host Dick Kirk taking Iowa. In the weeks leading up to Super Tuesday, the Republican field thinned, and the Democratic one grew, until both sides had four competitors: far-right Republican Speaker of the House Jay Garestaer, populist Senator Matteos Egazarian, neoconservative populist Eric Gonzalez, and philanthropist Cal Reed for the Republicans staked out their claims as major candidates, while on the Democratic side hard-left New Hampshire Governor Irina Kuznetsov, ex-Republican and Ohio Senator Gianna Carrollton, eccentric Indiana Governor Kailen Murray, and "socialist" Vermont Governor Robert Danders duked it out.

Before Super Tuesday, however, Superstorm Bonnie struck the East Coast, the most powerful hurricane to make landfall since Katrina. Reed was the first to suspend his campaign, and others followed, while Governor Kuznetsov made trips up and down the East Coast-leading to an ugly spat between her, Carrollton, and Murray that resulted in Governor Murray dropping out of the race-and a new competitor, Mayor Jeremy Beaumont of New York, stepping in to take his place at the second debate.

Super Tuesday came, and went, with Senator Carrollton, expected to win handily, falling to a narrow second behind Governor Kuznetsov, while Cal Reed eked out a similarly small victory on the Republican side. The primaries raced on, while, in Washington, scandal brewed.

Ex-Speaker of the House Jay Garestaer was appointed Secretary of State by the President-only for him to later claim he was forced into the position. As scandal brewed, two simultaneous scandals broke-Secretary Garestaer was revealed to have made an attempt to have child services confiscate Reed's newborn daughter, and the NSA was discovered to have been used for spying on political opponents. Between this revelation, Bonnie, and a host of failures, including Turkey being removed from NATO in a near-unilateral action, the President's approval ratings began to plummet.

The Democratic primary remained contested, Mayor Beaumont missing his chance at a leader after a disastrous gaffe in a debate, where he, to prove his generosity, offered to write up a check to charity on-stage, an act for which he was lashed at by Governor Kuznetsov. Kuznetsov and Carrollton constantly danced back and forth in the top two slots-while Murray re-entered the race, winning Florida with a key endorsement. On the Republican side, Senator Egazarian struggled through one of his worst weeks, unfortunate statements and revealed falsehoods plaguing him, made all the worse when he began to fight with fact-checkers. Reed pulled into the lead, a lead which slowly began to expand.

Then came the greatest legislative fight since the Affordable Care Act-and perhaps greater. Senator Carrollton, a rare pro-life Democrat, repeatedly hammered in the debates for not doing enough for women, pushed forward the "Women's Alternative Choices" bill-a bill that cut all funding to abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood. The fight was ugly-and became uglier after Carrollton, squeezing together a small cadre of conservative Democrats and Independents, passed the bill with no room to spare. The President rejected it-and took the opportunity to break with all decorum, and personally attack several of the Senators who passed it. The situation only grew worse when the President did so again at a veteran's dinner-and the party began to fragment, the establishment, Governor Danders's hard left, the new Democrats, and Carrollton's blue dogs. Attempts at reconciliation generally made the problem worse-and throughout, Mayor Walton, the likely Green nominee, hammered the WAC with all she had, coming to national notoriety when the new Speaker, Robert Eberhardt, held an "American Unity" event before the Washington Monument, inviting speakers from all parties to attend and speak about healing.

The shock came when the President broke down, defying his own establishment to sign the bill, with amendments. Regulations were passed, and all federal funding for abortion was struck away, from a Democratic bill, signed by a Democratic President. The party rebelled in anger, Winston's approval ratings fell to points not seen since 2008-while Senator Carrollton continued to stand by her bill. Secretary Garestaer, on the Republican side, left the country for Turkey-seeking asylum, and not returning.

Carrollton began to struggle mightily in states, and it appeared that Governor Kuznetsov finally had a clear shot at the nomination-until the mid-forties women suffered a stroke, and entered a coma. The primaries carried on without her, as Mayor Beaumont and, especially, Governor Danders gained steam, with Governor Murray languished. Weeks later he would abandon the party, and throw his support behind the Green nominee.

On the Republican side, Senator Gonzalez faded, as the pair of populist Senators split their vote, and Cal Reed pushed onward. That he would finish in first, at this point, was certain-whether he could attain a majority to avoid a contested convention was another question altogether, as the Republican candidates refused mounting pressure to drop out of the race. Cal, for his part, essentially suspended his primary campaign, beginning aggressive steps for the General election, including foregoing the final debate.

With Kuznetsov and Carrollton flailing, and the party aching, yet another split occurred, cleaving apart one of the factions of the party, when California Governor Ray Ramirez pushed for, and got, the extremely late entrance of Senator Anthony Conti into the race. A contested convention seemed likely-now even more so, and while Florida Governor Esperanza Huerta criticized Ramirez harshly, Conti was in the race to stay.

Governor Kuznetsov eventually recovered, but seemed to have lost her luster, while Carrollton returned to the campaign trail, struggling. With Egazarian struggling, and Gonzalez having all but abandoned his campaign, Cal Reed clinched the nomination a week before the final primaries-while the Democrats split yet again, Mayor Beaumont deserting the party to announce his candidacy as an Independent. Even with this, the final week of primaries went through without a clear victor, with Danders drawing close to the leading two, and Kuznetsov gaining a definite lead-but well below the amount required, even with superdelegates. The Democrats were going to a contested convention.

The weeks after the primaries were characterized by a flurry of early campaigning from Reed, and little activity on the Democratic side, as the party attempted to put itself together. The campaign came to the forefront again when a young woman accused Republican nominee Calvin Reed of raping her, an employee of his-only for documents to be produced showing the woman was never hired. The fake story enflamed tensions, with the Democratic party hammered for the alleged hit. In the legislature, a young Senator from New Mexico, María Antonieta Arroyo Villanueva de Peña, introduced a bill on chemical castration for rapists-one that drew the ire of nearly every Senate Democrat. With the Majority Leader and President Pro Tempore absent, the floor descended into a chaos of argument, Villanueva de Peña against a pack of Democratic Senators, decorum falling by the wayside, while a simultaneous Twitter exchange roared out. The fight lasted days, including a Fox News debate,before the bill was finally hammered through-making it to the President's desk, where it was signed.

Domestically, terror grew as a problem. A massive rally of the New Black Panther party ended in bloodshed, shots fired at police officers leading to a National Guard crackdown that some called a massacre-until other attacks on police broke out across the nation. The perpetrator, Abubakr Ibrahima, was captured by VDF forces under Governor Abelard Bell, but another attack, even more deadly-a bombing in Chicago, followed, and then the subsequent attempted assassination of Illinois Senator Leanne Harper. Days later, the man, captured, escaped custody, culminating his escape with an attack on the Russian Embassy in Washington D.C. Here though, his luck ran out-fleeing into Virginia, he had the unfortunate distinction of being the second such terrorist captured by VDF and VNG forces.

The year moved on, with the next diversion being a spat on Twitter between Villanueva de Peña and Senator Carrollton, over the latter's praise of Franklin Roosevelt as "perhaps the greatest President", while Villanueva de Peña contested that the allegedly racist FDR deserved no such distinction. The feud heightened when Carrollton brought the Twitter debate to live television, when she responded to the tweets in a CNN interview-and after criticism, agreed to a debate on the matter.

Meanwhile, overseas, problems were brewing. Japanese banks attempted to raise their interest rates over the negative ones they had employed, sending shockwaves through their economy-and then into that of the United States, where markets began to fall.

The first Presidential debate was slated for the middle of the month, July, and took place live, with Calvin Reed and Green candidate Ellen Walton, in some polls higher than the split Democratic candidates, competing, the unchosen Democrats unable to field a candidate. The debate went on to solid ratings, with both candidates generally perceived to have done well, in a generally noncombative format, the two more making their positions known than attacking the other.

Two nights remained before the DNC, where the badly broken Democratic Party, far behind in every major poll, and even sometimes in third, would attempt to put itself back together. Two days before it, however, Senator Carrollton went through with her debate with Senator Villanueva de Peña on Roosevelt-which turned into a disaster. Carrollton was criticized and booed for avoiding questions, and constantly attacked and beaten down by Villanueva de Peña, her counters lacking, or even more controversial. The hammering went on for some time until the debate finally drew to a merciful close, Carrollton badly beaten, Villanueva de Peña, already building on a head of fame after the SNIP bill, soaring.

The Convention, though, was coming, nonetheless, and has now just begun. The first day was capped by controversial statements from the President, the second, with an exhortation to hold to core values by the Governor of Pennsylvania, and the third with then-leading candidate Irina Kuznetsov rushed off stage after freezing before the microphone. The ballot came, went, and failed, and the party rushed to broker its convention. Now, in a shocking turn of events, leading candidate Gianna Carrollton, endorsed by Governor Kuznetsov, turned her back on the likely nomination to endorse Governor Danders, followed soon be Senator Conti, in a dramatic flip-flop that has sent waves of controversy through the political sphere.

The vote finally happened-and happened, and happened, and happened. Ballots were gone through, each one drawing closer to the conclusion-until at last, seven ballots past, the appointment was made-Vermont Governor Robert Danders. The fight over his Vice-President, one Gianna Carrollton, was worse. Some two days of infighting later, she slipped by by the slimmest of margins to be given the spot-an election which triggered Democratic Governor's Association head Norris Vilseck, together with other delegates, to walk out of the convention in protest.

The Green Party followed up the nomination almost immediately with a series of advertisements dominating the airwaves, while the Republican National Convention was just around the corner. The first day was chaotic. Two speeches in, a twitter brawl between three Congressman, one infamous for starting such fights, broke out online-but that paled in comparison to what happened next. Democratic Senator Marcus Green of Hawaii, coming to the RNC, verbally engaged Republican Senator Thomas Nilap on the floor-then struck him. Security managed to seize him before further damage could be done-and there were no permanent injuries, but criticism of the Democrats for sending a fall man to start fights at the RNC poured in. Near-simultaneously, Vermont Gov. Robert Danders, in his first Presidential rally in Philadelphia, site of the Republican National Convention, started with a stumble, calling the city "Las Vegas", and receiving heavy criticism, including being called a "puppet" for endorsing Winstoncare despite acknowledging "massive problems" with it. The Republican convention still held most of the airwaves, however, with another speech, and then a heavily lauded conclusion by Speaker Robert Eberhardt, laying out a comprehensive policy platform, the "Contract with the American People."

The next day started with worse for the Democratic nominee, as, in response to criticism in the Speaker's speech the previous night, he "clarified" his policy positions. Said clarification had barely stood before Sen. Villanueva de Peña broadsided the Governor on Twitter for lying to the people-showing links to videos earlier in the campaign that snared him. The Governor would later apologize for saying something "in the heat of the moment", but Mayor Walton took the opportunity to televise an address to the American people, criticizes the lying and actions of Sen. Green, and proposing an alternative path.

The RNC continued onward, the day being the first in U.S. history to feature all-women speakers in a major party convention. The night was concluded with a thunderous speech from the young and fiery Senator Villanueva de Peña, in the most-watched moment of the convention to that point. Outside the convention, however, more controversy broke. Governor Danders announced that he would be meeting with the President of Taiwan on U.S. soil, which drew a harsh response from China. Further details came to light, with candidates Walton and Reed confirming that they too were invited to, and would attend the meeting, with both them, and others, criticizing Danders for his announcement, on grounds of it sabotaging the negotiations in an attempt at publicity, or that it revealed sensitive details to possible enemies.

On the third day of the convention, Mayor Walton rallied again, promising to keep her pledge for universal healthcare where Danders had dropped it, while the Republican convention spoke on foreign policy, ending with a message from Gov./Adm. Abelard Bell on the characteristics of a leader, and the importance of trustworthiness, which he said that Reed possessed, and Danders did not.

The night before the final day of the convention, new Presidential polling was released, showing that, for the first time in two decades, a third-party candidate was leading one of the major parties, with Mayor Walton passing Governor Danders in the polls.

The Republican National Convention ended with a thunderous speech from the nominee, after choosing liberal Connecticut Senator, and veteran,
Buck Havich as his running mate. Danders responded soon after with a policy speech at Gettsyburg, but one that did not go over particularly well. In the week before the Green convention, defections mounted-Governor Hughes of Michigan was to come back to the Democratic side,
but instead formally joined the Green Party, followed by Maine Senator John Kingston, while the DNC chair resigned following a sex scandal,
replaced by the former DCCC head. The Green convention began unconventionally, in a town hall format introducing Green candidates nationwide. Many of the defectors spoke at the convention, leading into the final day, with California Senate hopeful Reginaldo Alphonsey introducing Mayor Walton, who announced her choice of running mate-Colorado Governor William Denver.

The campaign spun on, Governor Danders falling farther behind, as the Green Party shed its past to become the American Progressive Party, placing candidates in races nationwide. Reed and Walton took their campaigns to the northeast over the coming weeks, stumping for position,
campaigning up until the date of the first post-convention debate, a debate that made history before it even started. Governor Robert Danders had failed to make the debate stage, missing the 15% threshold. For the first time in history, it would be a Republican on-stage facing, not a Democrat, but a Progressive.

The debate became a detailed show of policy from both sides, a point-by-point struggle, in which a strong performance by Walton was nonetheless eclipsed by an exemplary one by her opponent Reed.

The race continues now through September, both sides struggling for advantage, Reed retaining a commanding lead, Walton seeking to close it and Danders attempting to pull himself from the single digits.

The Libertarian Party, though, took it's own woes. Party difficulties led to a long delay of the final primaries and the Convention, and when that convention came, the issues multiplied exponentially. A newcomer, Anita Flores's victory in California and seizing of the lead led to a storm of controversy when the LNC Chair nullified non-registered Libertarian results in California, redistributing many of Flores's delegates to Representative Gerald Breckenridge. Allegations of the Convention being "rigged" immediately rose, and Flores took the stage to condemn the process before leaving the Convention, race, and party, following soon after by Sherman Paulson. In the halls outside the Convention, Breckenridge confronted Paulson, leading to a fight which put Paulson in a coma with internal bleeding in his brain. Flores returned, attacking and knocking out Breckenridge, but the damage was done-the Convention broke off, to reconvene after Breckenridge returned from his hospital bed.

There, Breckenridge gathered the delegates and revealed a stunning development-Victoria DeLucca, an ally of his, and a multibillionaire,
had bribed delegates to vote for Breckenridge though Breckenridge claimed that he had nothing to do with it. Breckenridge attempted to suppress the information of the bribery-something claimed by both Arumb and Flores earlier, but the news was leaked, and broken on Flores's news website, RevolutionTruth, with the effects soon to be seen.

Those effects were, in essence, the shattering of the Libertarian Party. DeLucca told the convention that Breckenridge had threatened her and her family in order to put out the bribes-which Breckenridge denied. The voting process was thrown into chaos-Longwood, the highest remaining "clean" choice, had disappeared from the convention, the four leading candidates had either left the party, had vanished, were under threat of criminal charges, or were hospitalized and unconcious. The fifth, Cassandra Arumb, made a run at the nomination, but failed, and as, by the Libertarian process, candidates were eliminated one-by-one, if became clear that it would be Flores against Breckenridge at the end. A desperate push was made by some delegates to write in Anton Jacques of West Virginia onto the ballots-siphoning enough votes from Breckenridge to hand Flores the nomination-which she promptly denied.

The Convention got worse after that-one Mr. Blythe claimed he accepted the nomination-others contested it, verbal brawls turned into physical brawls, and with the interference of a depleted security force, a fire started in the corner of the hotel, and an excess of pepper spray, the building began to be evacuated in the chaos and violence, a massive police presence and scattered mobilized National Guard units required to keep it down. Thus ended the convention.

Some days after the Convention, on the Senate floor, a fight of words turned into a physical fight of a level not seen since the caning of Sumner.
The bill discussed was DEFACED, a bill to put two women, Harriet Tubman and Susan B. Anthony, on U.S. currency. Senator Thomas Nilap of Alaska, who had previously sparred with Majority Whip Villanueva de Peña on Twitter, charged and slammed the unawares woman into the floor while she was speaking, and began to attack her. The pair struggled and struck each other until Senator Breckenridge managed to move Nilap off of her, with the Sergeant-at-Arms taking him into custody. Despite this, Villanueva de Peña refused to be taken out for medical attention until completing the vote on the bill, which passed narrowly over a Democratic attempt to kill it.

Despite her injuries, that night Villanueva de Peña attended a previously-scheduled and much-anticipated debate between her and Illinois Governor Benjamin Jackson, the two having been at odds online. Villanueva de Peña showed difficulty speaking at length and standing upright and broke into coughing fits multiple times in the debate, but nevertheless earned a decisive victory over the Governor, who was criticized for repeating an earlier-debunked talking point on claiming the Illinois legislature was Republican-dominated, as well as not recognizing his state's current gun laws.

The first post of this thread, the one not being of our all-so-glorious OP, shall be dedicated to the ever-so-great Sir Donald Johnson.

May the Donald continue his unorthodox ways, and successfully ascend to the Presidency in 2020. Amen. Hallelujah.

If anyone has 45 minutes of free time, the desire to see Bruce Jenner get his pathetic ass handed to him, the desire to enjoy a sassy middle aged british woman bash people, or the desire to take in an episode of the greatest game show to ever grace television, I highly suggest that you watch this episode of "The Weakest Link". Watching rich people flounder with trivia is hilarious.
