Moderator: any other questions for our candidates?

The Democratic States of Cascadia and Columbia wrote:Moderator: any other questions for our candidates?

A very thin, fragile looking man stands and begins to address the candidates. "The real question we need to be asking ourselves... what will we do for the poor working people of this country?" He points to various members of the audience. "Look at this man and this one and this one. These downtrodden men are the products of the poor conditions they face, what will you do to make sure these men can sustain their families?"

Ricker: Well sir, the only way to help the impoverished of this country is to ensure that they have access to good paying jobs, and the only way to do that is to entice businesses to come to the DSCC. If we loosen some of our regulations and business taxes, then foreign and domestic companies alike will flock to Cascadia, and bring much needed employment with them.

Gable: I think was Kirkland over here is trying to say is that to help the poor we need to make the rich richer. This, ladies and gentlemen, is flawed logic to its core. What we need is not to loosen things up for the factory owners and oligarchs, or they'll continue to pay working men close to nothing for dangerous jobs with no breaks. We, the Party of the Workers, will demand a livable minimum wage be set down in law, forcing companies to pay their employees what they deserve. With a law like this in place, no one who works hard in this country will go home hungry.

Brown: ridiculous, how will a small businessman be able to survive if he has to pay all his workers 30 Cascadian Pounds an hour? All this will do is destroy Cascadian business.

Gable: What it will do is rebalance some of the wealth inequality in this country!

Brown: Oh please, if a person finds himself impoverished, he has every right in this country to go out to rural Cascadia and build a home, farm the land, and make a living. With the Homesteader's act, he doesn't even have to buy the land. That's how we'll help the impoverished.

MacDonald: Now gentlemen, I agree with much of what has been said so far, but in small doses. The truth is, poverty is an issue that must be approached from multiple avenues. Yes, encouraging job growth is important, but as Mr. Gable said, making sure those jobs are good paying is also important. If reelected, I would be happy to float through parliament a plan to institute a decent minimum wage, but that is not the only course of action we need to take. We also need to support our education system, which for many is the best way to escape generational poverty, we need to make sure our welfare system is properly funded and well managed, in order to help all those in need in this country, and we need to make sure our healthcare system is well run, since the impoverished are usually the most in need of assistance in that regard.

Sark: When I hear you say things like that Premier, all I hear is money money money spending spending spending. Where's this money going to come from? Because it better not be coming out of my pocket.

Moderator: Alrighty, that's all the time we have for that issue! Now, do we have any more questions for our candidates?

Sandinista Nicaragua

Moderator: alright candidates, if there's no more questions, I'll give each of you some time to make closing statements. We'll start with you Sark.

Sark: Thank you moderator. My fellow Columbians, if you want change in the right direction, vote for the Windsor Bloc this election cycle. With your support, we hope to finally secure this nation as a principled, Protestant, Anglo-Saxon country, and if there's any time to start making these changes, it's now. Women are demanding the right to vote, Catholicism and Orthodoxy are growing every day, heathens and foreigners are coming into our country and being given residency by our liberal government. If you ask me, civilized society seems to be unraveling. We, my countrymen, are the only people who can change that.

MacDonald: Ladies and gentlemen, unlike some candidates, I believe the DSCC to be an excepting and tolerant place. We shouldn't be pushing people away, we should be welcoming them and protecting their rights to freedom and happiness. Vote for the OTP this election, and I will continue my work on improving our healthcare system, funding public education and public law, and encouraging Homesteaders and immigrants to our grand nation.

Ricker: Fellow Cascadians, we've had enough of the wasteful spending of our government. Elect me as Premier, and I promise, I will cut red tape, root out corruption, and get this machine well oiled and running. The answer is not increased funding for healthcare and education, the answer is smarter spending. We in the BNAP assure you that we can increase government efficiency without taking any more money out of your pockets.

Gable: People of this great nation, while the BNAP may promise you they will not take money out of your pockets, we at the Radical Worker's Party promise you we will be able to put more money in your pockets. Vote for us, and we will do everything in our power to provide for this nation a livable minimum wage, suitable working hours and safe working conditions. It's time to stop giving to the rich in the name of helping the poor. It's time to pay the people who work the hardest in our country their fair share. And for goodness sake, it's time women were given the right to vote!

Pendleston: Cascadians, if actually protecting this country matters to you, vote Redwood this Independence Day. Our forests and rivers are being decimated and polluted, and as a citizen of this country, I am appalled that our government seems to give little regard to our most precious resource. We need Protected National Forests, regulations on businesses who excessively pollute, and an end to clear cut forestry.

Brown: Citizens of this fair nation, together, we need to prove to the government that Liberty matters to the average Cascadian. Vote instead for the Patriot party this election, and show our politicians that we do believe women deserve the right to vote, we do believe government shouldn't interfere in business, and we do believe government shouldn't interfere in our lives.

OOC: alright fellas, I'm not saying I'm going to have a player-vote election, because I won't, but would any of the candidates appeal to you if you were an average Cascadian. It might not change my results that much, but then again, it'll certainly help whichever candidate you support.

Sandinista Nicaragua

OOC: If I were Cascadian, I would vote for Mr. Pendleston. MacDonald seems moderate and willing to compromise on the issues, but he also seems a bit TOO willing to compromise on everything.

Sark or Brown, I think. There's a reactionary segment of every population, and I personally lean libertarian.

A few weeks after returning home, Prince Frederick Clarence was prepared to investigate. He headed out into the jungle with a small group of men (bodyguards, detectives, etc.). Later in the day, after stopping to go hunting, they neared the dirt path that lead to Sandino's residence. They could see two soldiers standing at either side of the road looking for anyone who might try to come through. Frederick's driver brought their car to a halt next to one of the soldiers. The soldier stooped to look through the window, "What is your purpose of driving through here Senor?" The driver looked over his shoulder toward Frederick for an answer which he did. "We have been sent by my father, the King of Mosquito Coast, to meet with his friend, El Presidente Sandino." "How do we know you are not lying?" replied the soldier. Frederick pointed to the valuables which sat next to him in the rear seat, clearly no average man could have acquired them. The soldier nodded, "very well," and waved them through.

What Frederick did not know at the time was that many of the soldiers stationed near the edge of the perimeter were just as clueless as everyone to Sandino's death... the secret was being kept very tightly.
