The Progressive Way

TPW was established as a means to counter the evangelical practices of the American Front and of the Libertarian's incumbent President (who was not elected, he was appointed at the formation of the FRA). It focuses heavily on secularism in government, regulation of the economy to promote fairness and efficiency, public education, women's rights, and homosexual rights. It wasn't until recently that homosexuals or women had equal rights within the FRA, as the evangelicals had held Congress for a time-- abortion was illegal, and so was sodomy, during that period (the libertarians had not criminalized either act, when they lost the Congress). A stunning Progressive victory changed all of that-- abortion is legal and readily accessible, and homosexual marriage has been proposed and passed, as has polygamy. The TPW continues to use as their campaign slogan "Never again-- do not forget the injustices of the past!" to garner votes for their cause.

The Atheist Agenda

The AA, like the Progressive Way, was formed to counter-act the American Front's Christo-fascist policies. They soon denounced the Progressive Way as "spine-less Liberals", and set on with their goal of eradicating religion from public life. They oppose Christmas, Hanukkah, and Ramadan celebrations in public, they oppose prayer in school-- even by students, and they oppose church exemption from taxation.

Political violence by the Atheist Agenda started out as reactionary to the AF's brownshirt tactics. Assassination of AF officials was commonplace, and vice versa. But beyond that, they expanded their activities to arson-- destroying churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, any religious institution they could target-- they would. With the decline of the AF, the Atheist Agenda carried out these attacks until the Progressive Way began to clamp down on them. Many of the Atheist Agenda's members floated over to the Progressive Way, because of this extremism.

Even so, the Atheist Agenda is the nation's fourth largest political party.

On the Candidates

Stephen Engelmann

Born in Erfurt, he emigrated to the Federal Republic of America upon request of President Murphy, and was granted any and all rights a natural born citizen would have. He has successfully run for Senator twice before, and was effective in the political scene. Instrumental in coordinating the Libertarian and Progressive politicians to oppose and rollback the American Front's policies, he is much to thank for the reversion to secularism in the Federal Republic of America.

Congressman Nikolai Kunis

Nikolai was a Ukrainian in the years before the FRA was founded, but emigrated to Mississippi before the FRA was established. He was pleased and proud to be a part of the Libertarian Party, working as a campaign organizer and lawyer, until the American Front gained power and began to implement laws attacking freedom of religion, freedom of sexuality, and anti-abortion laws. Like most of the Atheist Agenda's co-founders, he believed that countering AF Christo-fascist brownshirt tactics and anti-woman, anti-gay laws was best achieved through terrorism and assassinations. He has never been brought up, however, for any criminal charges-- keeping clear of any connection to violent crime. He gained a position in Congressman during the wave of anti-AF sentiment in the public, and has worked fervently to see that their laws have been repealed and their support continues to erode.

While disliking both parties to the extent of differentiating policies and ideals, Furon finds the Atheist Agenda to be much better than the Progressives, as Progressivism rarely is good in government.

Yes, I'm sure people who commonly assassinate political figures and burn down private buildings form an excellent government.

"So you admit that you did it..."

"I, President Murphy, of the Federal Republic of America? No, that's silly-- the only violence I've incurred upon my people hasn't happened yet, by stationing troops in Texas to counter the Imperialists to the south. My party is above such petty brownshirt tactics, employed by the AF and AA. While I remain unconvinced, Congressman Kunis has repeatedly denied accusations and has never formally been brought up on any charges."

The Atheist Agenda had no comments besides the ones in the primary election, regarding political violence.

OOC: Somehow, that description makes Kunis sound like a mafia overlord and Engellman like a business man.

IC: "Mandalore endorses Nikolai Kunis for the presidency."

OOC: If Kunis gets elected, I can RP some possible innocent cuddling. ;D

While the RSSN would like to see more firearm regulation from the main political parties, every economy needs regulation, and we endorse the Progressive Way.

The political culture of the FRA has always been centered around individual rights and responsibility, and no party would ever be elected if they supported such things as gun control. It's simply not the American way, and before the political violence between the zealots and secularists, there was no real gun violence within the Federal Republic. But we respect your point of view on the subject, sirs.

OOC: RPing genocide is banned from CNRP.

OOC: RPing genocide is banned from CNRP.

OOC: However, mass deportation, interning people, imprisoning people, and "purging" people is totally okay as long as you never say genocide in it.

Or so the past would dictate.

OOC: Ok, so with 2/3 for TPW and 1/3 for AA:

Random.org, 1-33 = AA, 34-100 = TPW.

Number: 82. TPW wins the election.

IC:

Federal Television Broadcasting Channel,

"It would appear that the Progressive Way candidate Stephen Engelmann has won a victory over the Atheist Agenda candidate Nikolai Kunis! This victory could create tension for the two parties, who have almost always worked together in Congress to pass legislation, so it's up to President-Elect Engelmann to balance this issue out. It would appear that he has selected Nikolai Kunis as his secretary of state and the former President Murphy as his VP-- as they say, keep your friends close and keep your enemies closer, although the LPFRA and TPW aren't exactly enemies of any sort. This is Federal Television Broadcasting Channel, bringing the election to you."
