Washington
The US Political RP




"If you want to know what a man really is, give him power."

Bob Ingersoll







The pace quickens. The new keepers of power have risen to their station, and tried their hand at governance, with all the glory and infamy that comes with it. Their opponents fight against the new administration and amongst themselves, seeking to decide whether cooperation, opposition, or resistance is necessary, or whether it is the securing of their own ideological territory that takes priority.

Republicans, Democrats, and Progressives, all with agendas, all with plans to fulfill them, and all with weaknesses to exploit in the year to come, politicians, young and old, battling for position, favor, and power within their ranks.

As the cabinet fills, special elections across the country serve as battlegrounds for party generals to test the stratagems of the war in the midterms to come, and for newcomers to make their shot at the influence and prestige of election, or to fall by the wayside into obscurity and defeat.

Fortunes will be made, fortunes will be lost, and the fate of the nation will be changed. New players will rise, to replace the old-or tear them down from their heights. The fields are fertile for harvest-and each will reap what they so.

Join, as Senator or Representative, as Governor, or Mayor, as pundit, or secretary, all are welcome who are willing to play the game. Fight for your ideals against corruption, fight for party against all opposition-or fight for your own power before all, in the endless game of Washington.

The application lies below, to write yourself into the tangled webs in the halls of power-and to write yourself into history. You can be remembered-or forgotten, drowned in the currents of time. The only one who can decide which...is you.

History awaits. It is time to write it.





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. There is no Donald Trump here. On this note, RL politicians post-Reagan do not exist, or have been replaced with generic stand-ins: those spots are yours to fill. Records and history are the same, including statistics, save in the places where player-characters have brought about a change.
3- Post when you can-warn us if you can't. A post per week is a good minimum standard, but we understand that real-life gets in the way. If you plan to leave, or you will be offline for some time, especially if you are interacting with someone, please try to let us know.
4-Make some IC effort. We are more lenient than most, here, but do try to put some effort into your IC posts. Try to keep one-liners to a minimum, though they are fine if in a conversation.
5- Respect your fellow players. Play nice. If you don't have friends, you won't have fun.
6- No Sue/flawless/perfect characters Give them some flaws. No one has fun when everyone is perfect. Everyone wants to be a young, tall, strong, charismatic superman. We'd like a little more depth than that.
7-No cheat-edits Once you've made an IC post, leave it. Tweaks to formatting are all right, but don't try to change what you've already put down, especially if it has already been responded to.
8- 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.
9-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.
10-No research in closed situations-For the short version-no Googling in debates. You can do all the research you like in preparation, but while a debate is going on, no citing of outside resources is permitted. This is on the honor system-but if you start spouting off statistics to the fifth decimal place, we'll probably catch on. In short, when you're in a situation where your character can't be looking things up, you can't either. If you're not sure-ask an OP.
11-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.
12-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
13-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.
14-PG-13. The site has a PG-13 rule, and we follow it. Swearing is acceptable in-character, but do your best not to make a habit of it, and censor the harder language if you can. Explicit sexual reference are prohibited-if that ever becomes necessary, use euphemisms. The same holds true for gore.
14- Have fun! Misery is illegal.




Applications


On "Hotshots" or "Movie Stars"

In this roleplay there has been a tendency for players, especially newcomers, to gravitate towards a certain kind of character, dubbed "hotshots", with several traits typically in common: An extremely young, often fiery, successful, tall and attractive politician, with excellent charisma and skills, often winning in a district or state that their party typically loses in, and possessing an inspiring backstory, with their 'weaknesses' being stubbornness, unwillingness to follow the rules, and generally being an anti-establishment rebel type. Oftentimes as well, their views may be a self-insert of your own.

While such a character makes an excellent movie star, less so in a roleplay based off of the realities of Washington. Few thirty-year old Senators built like football players and models are running about, and only so many anti-establishment characters can exist before the 'establishment' becomes a minority.

The recommendation is for new players to consider expanding their horizons instead of looking for a "movie star" "hotshot" character type, consider making a character who holds different views than you, who has definite weaknesses, older, establishment-perhaps more skilled in experience, or other ways.

Everyone wants to be the young prodigy, but it is a better roleplay experience for all, including yourself, to seek some diversity.

RP Primer-Helpful Reading Before Joining

The Washington Roleplay takes place in an America much the same as our own. There are no Nazis in the High Castle, or any dramatic reorganization of government or alternate history. It has, however, changed somewhat from the current state of present politics from the roleplay through the 2016 election, and this should provide a useful primer on the major shifts.

President
The 2016 election was won by the Republican Party, as in real life. The new President, Calvin Reed, differs significantly from Donald Trump in some areas, and is similar in others. A former MLB pitcher, Reed was criticized for inexperience, youth, and unreadiness for the job, but was typically looked favorably upon as a fresh face, outside of a corrupt system, and well-regarded for a clean personal life and philanthropy. He is generally considered to be socially conservative, and economically more center-right, with an emphasis on balanced budgets, with an environmentalist trend. He has been fairly popular in his first months in office, but has been plagued with conflicts with several members of his own party.

The 2016 Republican primaries
Differ from the real-life primaries mostly through the fate of "populism" and protectionism. Reed defeated Senators Egazarian and Gonzalez in the primaries, both self-identified populists who promoted heavily protectionist policy. While the Trump shift brought protectionism more into vogue within the GOP, the Reed victory signalled something of a putting-down of the ideology from the Republican mainstream, though it still certainly exists. The form of the election shifted from a three-way race to a Reed lead, and an attempted effort by Egazarian and Gonzalez to remain in the race until the convention, despite being mathmatically eliminated, in order to force a contested convention, resulting in Republican criticism. The effort proved unsuccessful, and Egazarian would drop out before the convention, where Reed was nominated without controversy.

The 2016 Democratic primaries
The Democratic primaries were contested by a much larger field, and much more closely, than in real life, scandals and pitfalls preventing any candidate from pulling ahead. Governor Kuznetsov of New Hamsphire was considered the likely nominee before having a stroke, and later making a controversial anti-LGBT statement. Senator Carrollton of Ohio was the alternative likely victory, but drew significant ire for her part in the WAC debacle. Mayor Beaumont of New York would eventually drop out from third place to launch an independent bid, which later folded, after controversy of his own. Fifth-place finisher Kailen Murray of Indiana would drop out and then reenter the race, before ultimately defecting to the Progressive Party. Senator Anthony Conti of Maryland joined the race in the final weeks, but after controversial statements alienated most of the party and electorate beyond the far-left wing.

As no candidate received a majority of delegates, the DNC was a contested convention. Kuznetsov was considered to be the frontrunner before collapsing on-stage during a speech at the convention. Kuznetsov was rushed to a hosptial, and would endorse Carrollton in her absence. Carrolton, however, along with Conti, and President Winston, would negotiate behind closed doors a plan to have the nomination fall to Robert Danders, the fourth-place finisher, a liberal Governor of Vermont. On returning to the stage, Carrollton and Conti both gave speeches endorsing Danders, while President Winston, among others, negotiated support back-stage. Govenror Kuznetsov would object, and receive a plurality of delegates on the second ballot, but by the seventh ballot, Danders was nominated. Danders nominated Carrollton to be his Vice President, eliciting controversy, Carrollton being seen as the most conservative of the candidates by a broad margin, controversially on abortion, and Danders the most liberal, save Conti. The nomination fight over Carrollton lasted through the weekend, until she was ultimately narrowly confirmed by balloting, prompting a walk-out of several left-wing deleagtes led by Governor Vilseck of Pennsylvania.

Following the DNC, Governor Huerta of Florida announced she would not endorse the Democratic candidate as a result of the DNC, while others, including Senators Hazelelponi of Florida and Kingston of Maine, left the Democratic Caucus.

President Winston
President Winston was the Democratic President from 2008-2016, replacing Barack Obama, who, is absent from the roleplay as part of the no real-life figures policy. Winston was the Mayor of Los Angeles and a Senator of California before election, and an actor before his political career, and was the youngest President elected. Winston's career through to the start of 2016 was similar to Obama's, with minor differences in the ACA online rollout going over much more smoothly, and diplomatic affairs progressing more rockily. In 2016, Winston's role in the WAC debacle was controversial, detailed further below. Revelations in the spring that the NSA was being used to spy on Republican politicians led to a scandal, and threats of impeachment, not followed through on. Winston would draw further controversy for a forcible ejection of Turkey from NATO and controversial actions of Secretary of State Jay Garestaer. The recession economy continued to reduce Winston's approval rating, which fell further after the vetoing of several broadly passed bipartisan bills, and attempts to grant himself additional powers and pass legislation via executive order, leading to his approval rating falling below ten percent by fall. Shortly after the election, it was revealed that Winston forcibly transferred refugees from Turkey to the Turkish government in a "prisoner exchange" for the return of Secretary of State Garestaer, who was in asylum in Turkey. The revelation of the information led to the impeachment and conviction of the President, and ultimately his taking of his own life.


WAC Debacle
The "Women's Affordable Choices" bill, or WAC was a hotly contested piece of legislation with far-reaching effects. Senator Carrollton, a pro-life Democrat, was accused by Mayor Beaumont in a primary debate of not doing enough for women, leading to the bill's introduction. The bill, in short, barred federal funding from Planned Parenthood, while increasing funding to other women's health centers. Carrollton led an effort, successfully managing to bring together a handful of other Democratic Senators to add onto the Republican majority in the Senate to overcome a filibuster, leading to the bill being passed by the Republican House. President Winston vetoed the bill, and became involved in an active feud involing personal insults with Senator MacKay of Pennsyvalnia, one of the Democrats who joined onto the bill. The Democratic party's internal feud was exacerbated by a failed "Democratic Unity Event" and Republican politicking, and Winston made the controversial agreement to sign the bill if it reached his desk for the sake of party unity. The bill was amended in the House to include medical regulations on abortion providers, and again narrowly overcame a filibuster in the Senate, to be signed by the President. The regulations and loss of funding did severe harm to Planned Parenthood, leading to the closures of many clinics, though some states managed to provide funds at the state level, and damaged Carrollton's campaign, with heavy criticism from more left-wing Democrats. Most significantly, however, the bill proved a lightning rod for the Green Party, providing their nominee, billionaire Ellen Walton, a toehold among a contested Democratic field with the perceived lack of pro-choice credentials among the party, with some Democrats crossing party lines to bolster her candidacy.

2016 Election
The 2016 Election proved to be a Republican wave election. Governor Danders, coming from a controversial DNC, alienated several portions of his base, promising subsidies to coal in an attempted populist turn, changing positions on abortion and healthcare several times, tying himself in scandal with false statements about past statements of his, and sparking a minor international incident with a meeting with the President of Taiwan, and threats to use nuclear force against China if necessary. Hampered by a severe lack of funds due to a swearing-off of PACs and large campaign donations, Danders would narrowly fail to make the first Presidential debate, and would de facto suspend his campaign from that point forward.

Ellen Walton of the Green Party, formally rebranded as the Progressive Party, received a number of Democratic defectors to bolster the party ranks, and outspent both other candidates from her personal wealth, focusing heavily on national TV advertisements in her campaign, and making both Presidential debates, while accusing Danders of splitting the vote.

The end result was a sweeping victory for Calvin Reed, obtaining slightly over sixty percent of the popular vote, while Walton broke the third-party vote record by exceeding thirty percent, while Danders, who had essentially conceded his campaign well before Election Day, received under ten percent, and no electoral votes. Vote-splitting allowed for Reed to win a number of plurality victories in states in which the combined Walton-Danders total exceeded his, including California.

On the Congressional level, the year proved a red wave, off of the massive unpopularity of President Winston, the negative coattails of Govenror Danders, and vote-splitting, leading to major Republican gains in House and Senate.

Recession and Dudley Strike
In July of 2016, a controversial and reckless move by Japanese authorities to raise interest rates dramatically caused the crash of their stock market, and, by ripple effects, a global economic downturn. The crash was exacerbated in the United States by the near-simulatenous "Dudley Strike" of oil producers, led by Francis Dudley and soon coming to encompass oil workers and corproations nationwide, in protest of excessive regulation, driivng gasoline prices over $5 per gallon. President Winston refused negotiation with the strikers, and attempted to address the recession via executive order, both unsuccessfully. The recession, though less severe than the Great Recession, continued into the new Presidency, when the Dudley Strike, having largely exhausted itself, was broken after failed negotiations by the passage of a carbon tax, pushing strikers back to work, and dropping fuel prices, though above pre-strike levels. The Dow Jones has been slowly rising, but employment and other economic gains are only just beginning to show signs of the recovery, the recession still present.

Supreme Court
The Supreme Court suffered two deaths in 2016, that of Scalia, as in real life, and the unexpected death of Kagan shortly before the election, an "October Surprise." Scalia's seat was filled by a conservative justice confirmed by the Republican Senate, the equivalent of Jennifer Elrod, and Kagan's seat has yet to be filled.

I forgot Eric’s seat would’ve been vacant. But it seems that will very easily be a Republican winning that.

He will be running in the special election, state law simply delays it, and prevents the Governor from appointing an interim Senator to hold the seat.

I don't imagine anyone is going to run against the former President, especially for his old seat, so he's essentially got a clear path.

That's pretty cool actually.

So that will be interesting, having a former president be a senator.

You had fun with that application, especially with the puns at the end.

Also, I just checked the roster again for funsies; when did Rhodes become Minority Whip? I don’t recall that happening. Maybe it did and I forgot, but I don’t recall. Sorry for the bombardment of questions, but new thread means new original post to read again.
