CE2's 1800 announcement thread


 Share

Recommended Posts

Fellow RPers.

It's 1800. President Boone @Patine has served for another 4 years, his second consecutive term. Domestically it was an awful term unfortunately (8/100). But he had some successes in foreign affairs (77/100).

None of Boone's secretaries was replaced but likewise the possibility to shape the court was again not given for the frontiersman-turned-politician. All of Washington's justices remained on the bench. For the next election all eyes are on Associate Justice Samuel Adams who is said to be in declining health. We are wishing the best, but make up your mind about the choice if Associate Justice Adams's service will not be prolonged.

President and Boone and Vice President Jefferson @Pringles are eligible to run again, but will they do?

Will there be new challengers on the horizon? 

Please submit your candidacy during the next 24 hours, so we can head to our poll (in which you can take part without being a candidate/player)

Vice President Jefferson announces that this will be his last time running with the intention to win. After serving 3 terms as Vice President, he knows this is his final chance. He wishes President Boone a hearty farewell, but states to the American people, there is much work to be done. The Domestic failures must be addressed as we expand Westward, and we must protect our brave Americans venturing to the West. He expresses his utmost appreciation in the American people for having faith in him as their Vice President.

[Meta: I’m kinda done with the federalists since Hamilton is IMO the only fun one]

George Clinton announces his candidacy for President or Vice President, whichever the voters decide. He praises Jefferson’s service and hopes to work alongside him to achieve four more years of Democratic Republican governance.

Then I shall take up the reigns.  Hamilton declares he will not throw away his shot, and will run for President. ;c)

If Hamilton somehow wins after two losses (and me giving up on him) I will drink my own piss

Abigail Adams announces she will run for president again. She declares she will abolish slavery wholesale, and will give women the right to vote in every state. Adams promises to be the most progressive candidate in the election 1000%. She also tries extra hard to get the abolition party to run people for congress in the house and senate, so abolitionists can finally fight the radical slave owners and their plans to spread slavery and racism.

John Adams will announce his candidacy for President, rejecting Hamilton's new bid as a "Sad venture by a washed-up lunatic with nothing better to do." He will run on moving away from the ruffian attitudes which brought so much suffering to the nation under Boone's Presidency, and will promise to fight for industrialization, greater tariffs, a strengthened Federal government, and a realignment of the political scene "away from the lowest common denominator who individuals like Boone represent and who Jefferson appeals to". He will also call for the nation to move closer to stable nations like Britain, rejecting the chaos and anarchy of the French. He will make no comment on the fact that he is opposing his own wife.

Abigail Adams will privately demand that John Adams retract his candidacy so she can run a campaign with federalist support. Otherwise she will divorce John Adams and say he had an affair with a slave.

He will beat her to the punch, declaring to the media that his wife's erratic behavior in politics has been caused by an STD spread during miscegenation with the negro race.

Abigail Adams takes an STD test to prove she is innocent to the media and legally divorces John Adams. She also writes to numerous papers that he is a hermaphrodite homosexual.

Any sensible person that isn't an elitist, or mindless fan boy of the mediocre play, "Hamilton", will obviously vote for Jefferson/Madison. 😉 

Or Jefferson/Clinton. Poor guy would’ve made a fine president in our timeline, if only the political winds hadn’t shifted against him 😕

Adams will declare his wife "Clinically insane", and will refute any accusations with the simple phrase, "Why is the media listening to a person afflicted with a disease of the negros and the reason-suppressing effect of female hormones?"

"In the 18th and 19th centuries, mercury, arsenic and sulphur were commonly used to treat venereal disease, which often resulted in serious side effects and many people died of mercury poisoning."

Y'all sure you wanna get uhh, tested? And treated?

George Clinton will laugh with his fellow Democratic Republicans at the implosion of the Federalist Party. A negro loving woman, a crooked washed up politician, and a hermaphroditic elitist? What a sick joke of a party. This election ought to be a breeze for Thomas Jefferson, the common sense choice in this election.
