Greetings to all of my fellow citizens. I am Christopher S., party leader of the Con-Rep party. Our nation is coming out of the recent anarchy, and is in desperate need of leaders who will stand up and work to bring back peace and prosperity to our nation.

The new Constitution has just recently been passed unanimously by the Convention, and elections will be held soon. These elections will truly decide the fate of our nation, for whoever controls the government during these critical first years will decide several things:

1) How the Republic will be looked at by foreign nations,
2) What style of economics will govern the nation,
3) What traditions will command our government,
4) If the constitution will be followed,
5) If a government that is structured like ours can work in America.

Our party's top leaders, myself and Sky-Opera, were both leading delegates in the Constitutional Convention. As a result, we both understand what the Constitution means, and we will move our party to follow and preserve this grand document for generations of Americans to come. However, the Constitution does leave room for policy differences, forcing America to decide whether we shall be a nation of traditional values and free enterprise, or a nation of liberal values and socialistic policies.

We, the members of Con-Rep, promise to stand upon the traditional values of our nation, and promote strong and free enterprise. Our platform reflects this stand:

We of Con-Rep support:

Right to Life: We recognize that all human life is sacred due to its Creator and thereby ought to be protected and preserved.

Right to bear arms: We believe that all should have the right to keep and bear arms.

Right to Free enterprise : We believe that the right to free buying and selling shall not be inhibited by the government particularly referring to healthcare and all other lawful objects (i.e.) certain drugs would be prohibited.

Right to Private Property: The right to own private property shall not be infringed upon except through due process, dire circumstances to the nation or province, and with just compensation.

Right to Private Business without Excessive Regulation: Private businesses shall have the right to remain private and shall not be nationalized. They shall only be required to pay standard taxes without value added taxes, and shall only be subject to the most basic standards to ensure safety to their customers and the people they affect. (i.e.) If they mass produce food they will be required to meet the healthy food standards of the FDA in order help maintain the public peace.

Right to Hire and Fire: Businesses shall have the right to choose their own workforce as they see fit, and shall be free of the previous republic’s forced labor unions.

Right of Citizen Dignity: Each citizen shall have a special right, as a member of the nation, to find deport through the local law enforcement, illegal individuals who have secured residence or illegal entry to this nation. This is designed to protect what each citizen has and give them a special status in the meaning of citizenship so as to promote patriotism and the perpetual preservation of the nation as created.

Privatizing Education through local administration and faculty composed of the parents and teachers.

Traditional Marriage: Marriage shall be between one man and one woman.

Traditional Values.

Stricter enforcement of the good laws already on the books.

Deregulating the government – Welfare should be minimized at the least. Government bureaus should be cut down to efficiency and paid well enough to insure a smaller but more elite staff rather than a great mass of ill-qualified staff.

Strong Military: We shall support the funding and perpetuating of a strong professional military. We shall work to ensure that this military is the strongest in the world, able to defend our interests at home and abroad.

Strong Foreign Policy: Our Nation shall not bow to the wills of any other nation. America was once the leader of the brotherhood of nations, and she shall be that leader once more. We will use all necessary and proper means to promote our interests at home and abroad. However, we will only use warfare as an absolute last resort for but the most dire of circumstances.

Freedom of Nations: We will not force any government style upon any other nation, and will allow friendly nations the greatest leeway possible in determining their own affairs. We will only step in when our nation's vital interests compel us to do so.

Mercy in War: We are determined to deal with enemy nations with great speed and power. However, we will do our best to protect the innocent civilians who may be caught in the middle of the warfare. If an enemy nation surrenders, we will deal mercifully with them, for warfare is not to be solely a weapon of retribution, but also a bringer of peace and tranquility in the world.

Broadening of the American Republic: We are committed to broadening the borders of the American Republic through strictly diplomatic means. Thus, we will give other states the ability to vote to join our Republic if certain conditions are met, e.g. they adopt a Republican form of government, and follow certain guidelines that will help them adopt the American way of life. Even conquered states shall not be forced into joining our Republic. Rather, their people shall have a Referanda taken, or a Convention of their representatives, in which they shall determine for themselves if they shall join America. Any state that decides to not join the Republic shall be given the freedom all other nations have, unless that state is actively working to undermine and destroy our Republic.

Unification of the previously United States: We will do all that we can to unify the whole of America's previous states. We are determined to see the American flag fly over our whole nation. In order to do so, we will use diplomatic means to bring our brethren back into the fold of America, and will not use military force unless our nation is actually attacked. If we use military force, we will follow the above-mentioned planks dealing with merciful warfare.

Unity: Our nation shall be unified by all the above. Furthermore, we shall work to encourage patriotism and get rid of sectionalism, regionalism, and localism. We are one people and one nation. We are Americans.

On behalf of Con-Rep, I ask for your votes in the up-coming election. Thank you, and God Bless America!

In response to concerns from the electorate, I have decided to add a couple more planks to our party platform.

Strong Military: We shall support the funding and perpetuating of a strong professional military. We shall work to ensure that this military is the strongest in the world, able to defend our interests at home and abroad.

Strong Foreign Policy: Our Nation shall not bow to the wills of any other nation. America was once the leader of the brotherhood of nations, and she shall be that leader once more. We will use all necessary and proper means to promote our interests at home and abroad. However, we will only use warfare as an absolute last resort for but the most dire of circumstances.

Mercy in War: We are determined to deal with enemy nations with great speed and power. However, we will do our best to protect the innocent civilians who may be caught in the middle of the warfare. If an enemy nation surrenders, we will deal mercifully with them, for warfare is not to be solely a weapon of retribution, but also a bringer of peace and tranquility in the world.

Broadening of the American Republic: We are committed to broadening the borders of the American Republic through strictly diplomatic means.
