Shadow hawk Posted October 16, 2011 Report Share Posted October 16, 2011 (edited) OOC- sorry for this second thing, just that it's late and my mind doesn't seem to know how this works yet, funny as i do tho. Hopefully a innocent mistake can be forgiven. The term for the Republic of Newfoundland's representatives are up, and it's that time when we need to elect 200 new members for the senate. Politicians from around the country are now campaigning, and mostly being funded by their respective parties. As of now, there are three main parties, with two that could change how this nation works. As of now, the polls are open, and for the next month (ooc- about 3 days) the polls will be open, and anyone registered to vote is welcome to cast their ballot at anyplace that allows. The polls are open, and now the citizens shall vote for their representatives in the senate. The chairmen and such in their respectful parties will answer any questions. Socialist Party Ideology: Socialism Chairmen: Aron Burks Motto: Prosper and prosperity for all! Overview: The people in this party call for everyone to share the wealth, and the government to help the people when needed. Their views tend ro range from radical communists, to various socialist ideas. Tho, most of the people in this party support the general forms of socialism, with the government encouraging small businesses, larger taxes to the wealthy to give back to the poorer, and various programs and projects to share the wealth. And maybe state control of some industries and companies. As this party is one of the younger parties, and believes in the shearing of wealth, several people are naturally drqwn to this party. current issues Foreign affairs: try to establish trade agreements and allow contact with other countries, va treaties and etc, to open ourselves more to the world.

As these people prefer stability over change, they will rarely make strong changes to the current government. They also don't want to get involved in international politics, as they feel that some other nations may force us into some conflict. Current Issues Foreign affairs: Keep our current form of isolation, with minimal contact with other nations va treaties and trade agreements, etc. Currency: Keep current gold and silver standard. military: 15% increase in funding over the next 5 years.

Lower corporation taxes. ------- New States Party motto: Qu'il y ait des richesses, la santé et l'éducation! (Let there be wealth, health and education!) Chairman: Nathan Salopek ideology: Tends to vary from person to person. Overview: This party is one of the newer party to be seen, and it appears that it is hoping to make some impact on the Republic. Headed by the Republic's minister of education, this party's main belief is that investment in education is the key to success. As with more education they believe, will leave citizen healthier, happier, and wealthier. ----- Current Issues Foreign affairs: Try to establish connections with other nations, va treaties and trade and trade agreements. Currency: Keep the gold stranded, as to make our money worth more.

Transportation: Keep current transportation and aviation taxes the same. Education: Increase education budget by 16% over five years. Encourage attendance to colleges and universities by setting up long-term, low interest loans. As well as state funded grants for our best universities and colleges for those students who clearly deserve one. Military: Increase military budget by 3% over 5 years. Energy: Continued support and subsidies for the two current clean energy companies; 'Sunny-Skies', and 'Burning Sun Energy'. Encourage use of green and clean energy by means of tax breaks for any company that creates and/or uses green energy. Introduce special taxes on 'dirty' factories, and plants. Nationalization: Sell our state owned gold and silver mines, no need to nationalize industries and companies. Taxes: lower all forms of income taxes, and lower tariffs. OOC note: I have planned to have your votes count. I'll also let my 'citizens' have a say, but that to me that wouldn't be fun. So remember, have your voice heard, and feel free to vote here. Also, this election will last for three days. And lastly, just want to say that I'm still sorta new at this, so some of the parties may look the same, but I don't intend to keep them like that.
