Earhart Wants to Enlist

As American mobilizes for war, we have received an unusual request. Amelia Earhart, the famous aviator who successfully circumvented the globe not long ago, wishes to enlist in the Army Air Corps as a fighter pilot. She has demonstrated considerable skill in mock dogfights, but there are many within the military establishment who frown on the idea of a having a woman flying combat missions. Should we make an exception in her case and let her join?

American Fleet in Pearl Harbor

The diplomatic and economic sanctions we have suffered from the United States appears to have been the beginning of something more threatening. The American Pacific Fleet has been stationed in the naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, clearly signaling that the Americans will maintain a strong presence in the Pacific and continue supporting our enemies. Striking against the base at this point may give us the element of surprise.

Destroyers for Bases Agreement

Having taken a stance against the Germans, the US appear interested in ensuring Britain stands strong against the German threat. They are, however, also concerned with maintaining their own naval presence in the Atlantic. In exchange for several of our naval bases, they will supply our nation with destroyer ships. The ships have been in reserve, but accepting will still strengthen the military bonds between our nations, and may be a wise decision.

[From.GetNameDefCap] accepts Destroyers for Bases Agreement

British Prime Minister [From.GetLeader] has signaled his acceptance of the terms of the Destroyers for Bases Agreement. A group of [From.GetAdjective] naval officers has arrived to inspect the destroyers and oversee the transfer.\n\n There is evidently still some work to do as several [From.GetAdjective] officers seem a little concerned about the sheer amount and thickness of guano and rust on the ships to be transfered.

Election of [GetYear] (1936)

The day of the presidential election has arrived. Incumbent Franklin Delano Roosevelt has already implemented several of the programs referred collectively to as the New Deal, intended to take the US out of the Great Depression.

While many of the efforts have been popular, his plans to further extend the role and power of the government have been met with criticism from his opponent, Republican Alf Landon. Coming from the oil industry, Landon wants to see greater economic freedom, while Roosevelt and the Democratic Party want to expand Social Security and ensure economic stability. The election may be a close call, or a major victory for the Democrats.

Roosevelt vs Willkie

Since the office of President of the United States was first established, no president has ruled for three consecutive terms. However, in light of the precarious state of the world and international developments in the last few years, President Roosevelt has decided to break with tradition and run for a third term. Republican Wendell Willkie, characterized as a dark horse candidate with a background as an industrialist with limited political experience, has been critical both of Roosevelt's economic interventionism and his justifications for running for a third term.

Although the candidates have much in common in their foreign policies and Willkie wants to retain some form of the New Deal, many still consider this election a determining point for the future of American democracy.

Landon vs Roosevelt

President Landon put a stop to the Democrats' continued New Deal reforms four years ago, choosing to rely on the nation's strength lying in industrial companies such as those he helped establish prior to his presidency. Roosevelt, who has continued to campaign in favor of completing the programs he originally planned for his second term, is now running for president again. While he remains a popular candidate, Landon has continued to criticize his efforts to concentrate power in the hands of the president, and has accordingly avoided similar policies himself.

Threats abroad, both to our own nation and others, remain a reality and neither candidate is in favor of the United States turning a blind eye to them. The question is who will lead the arsenal of democracy through these dire times.

Roosevelt vs Dewey

The presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt has already been exceptional in many ways. Despite his declining health and the unprecedented length of his presidency, he aspires to continue leading our country through the war effort. The Republicans have been limited in their choices of candidates due to many potential nominees serving in the war, but have chosen Governor Thomas E. Dewey to represent them.

Roosevelt continues to have popular support, but many suspect he may not live to see the end of his term. But is that sufficient to grant Dewey a victory over the man who has taken us this far?

[Root.GetLeader] vs Roosevelt


Although many aspects of the New Deal were retained by [Root.GetLeader], Roosevelt still sees the opportunity to make his original plans for continued development of the programs reality. Despite declining health, he has managed to retain much of the support which landed him the presidency previously, and is now campaigning for the Democrats again.

[Root.GetLeader] is arguing that a change of leadership in America's sensitive situation would be irresponsible, which is somewhat ironic since the same claim was made before his previous victory over Roosevelt. Despite this, he may have a point.

Roosevelt vs MacArthur

With the continued threat of being drawn into a war, both Democrats and Republicans have aspired to find a candidate from the military. General Douglas MacArthur, normally devoted to his military duties, has taken the opportunity to campaign for the Republican nomination while our nation is at peace and won. He is now challenging Roosevelt, supporting the conservative coalition.

Roosevelt continues to be popular, but MacArthur's charisma and sense of duty has made a strong impression on voters. Does the military really know best?

Campaign of Douglas MacArthur

To challenge Roosevelt's record-length presidency, the Republicans have looked to respected military commanders, hoping to find a potential candidate to take America through this war. General Douglas MacArthur has been a popular nominee among the conservatives, but he is also an indispensable asset in the ongoing conflict and has been reluctant to spend his time campaigning for the presidency.

He nevertheless remains one of the more promising conservative candidates and can perhaps be convinced to campaign to avoid getting a moderate Republican president. Is it worth the sacrifice?

Roosevelt Passes Away

Although President Roosevelt's health has been in decline for some time, his strong presidential campaign convinced many that he had many years left. However, the possibility of FDR's death while still in office has remained, and today he passed away after suffering a stroke. Vice-President Harry S Truman has now taken the oath of office, requesting the support and prayers of the people. The old cabinet remains, and Truman has vowed to continue many of the policies of his predecessor.

In a recent vote, a senator has surprisingly switched sides to vote for a government proposal. While the issue itself was fairly minor, the public vote of support from a previously outspoken critic of [USA.GetLeader] has raised many eyebrows around Washington.\n\nSome analysts believe that this example will lead additional senators to reconsider their stance.

Representative speaks passionately in support of Government

Asked about her stance on a number of policy issues at a fund-raising dinner, a representative spoke out in support of President [USA.GetLeader]'s policies. She further claimed that many of her fellow representatives had similar views, but were merely held back by "idiotic short-sightedness, thinking no further than the next election" instead of doing what was right for the American people. \n\nHer comments have been widely reported by the press and put several of her colleagues in hot water as they had to explain where they stood on these issues.

Representative criticizes President

During a recent debate on tax reform, a Representative launched into a long-winded speech about the many failings of the Administration. According to him, no right-thinking American could possibly want to support the policies of the President, whatever their party affiliation may be.

His harsh words seem to have had an effect, as a number of Representatives previously thought firmly behind the policies of [USA.GetLeader] made noises of support.

Senator retires

Following a minor heart attack, a senior Senator announced today that he will be retiring for health reasons.

While technically only one man with one vote, Washington insiders nonetheless counted him as worth several votes as he was the key to secure several others.

With the seat most likely going to an avowed critic of President [USA.GetLeader], the Administration will find it a lot harder to secure the necessary votes to pass bills.

House hearings into Presidential misconduct

A minor scandal originating in the White House has started to gain momentum. Following weeks of media reports implying that a minor administrative official had been taking bribes in return for lucrative government contracts, the House Committee on Expenditures in the Executive has begun to hold hearings to determine if the President was aware of this. While most observers don't believe that this will lead to any major trouble for President [USA.GetLeader], it will no doubt mean that many of the president's supporters will have to lay low for a while.

Senator from [USA_congress_investment_state.GetName] offers Support

The senior Senator from [USA_congress_investment_state.GetName] has approached the government with an offer of support. His state suffers from critical under-investment, and a government-initiated economic stimulus program would certainly make him reconsider his stance on certain proposed government policies. The senator sits on several important committees, and is quite famous for being able to cut deals, making his vote worth several more in both houses.

Representatives from [USA_congress_investment_state.GetName] offer Support

Federal funding should be made available to upgrade roads and bridges in order to promote commerce between the states.

Senate Committee investigates shipbuilding in [USA_congress_investment_state.GetName]

Prodded by the senior Senator from [USA_congress_investment_state.GetName], the Senate Commerce Committee has begun hearings into the state of the local shipbuilding industry.

[USA_congress_investment_state.GetName] has been identified as a region in which a major investment should be made, and several committee members have expressed an expectation that the administration of [USA.GetLeader] will set funds aside for this.
