It played a role. The anti militarism is what allowed Bismarck to come to power, the party largely then split between those backing Bismarck and those staying true to traditional liberal values.
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.
Hopefully you can at least tear Bavaria away from Austria without a war.To form the NGF a war with Denmark is necessary, to form Germany I at least need to fight France and maybe Austria too if I can't outmanoeuvre them in Southern Germany
KP- While the party does say that it is not mainly expansionist, it does not limit us too becoming expansionist either. Honestly, if we want to unite Germany we need to fight france, which can be crippiling if Austria decides to use their Hegemony CB. We need a strong military right off the bat, diplo can take years and years by getting the southern german states out of Austria's sphere. Plus, no sudetenland anyone? What kind of German Unification are you guys thinking?!
Also, while many of you do not play Vicky 2 let me enlighten you: We can form NGF without even having to go to war. We just need to sphere denmark and its vassal, but this makes us lose two provinces we otherwise would have gained through war.
It is clear that Herr Jako does not have his priorities in order. He forgets that Prussia is already in possession of the greatest army in the world, and instead chooses to proclaim his support for a party which is uncommitted to German unification! Hah! Should the KP win power, how do we know that they will even consider forming a greater German state? Only the DFP is totally and utterly committed to a unified liberal Germany.
Shoudn't we at least try to incorporate Luxembourg into the NGF?
Well, we aren't against German Unification either. Just because we haven't supported Unification utterly does not mean we won't try to come of our KNOWN cores back.
If the KP is truly committed to German Unification, why do they not dare issue a public statement to that effect? Clearly the KP collective leadership combined have about as much balls as a seraglio of Ottoman eunuchs!
Now now, there need not be any reason to fling insults... But, we do not quicken in the stomach when war is in involved! What do you think we will do with our superior,preserved, prussian army? We will expand of course! But through the rightful way, through force of arms. Almost all German States agree Prussia is the one to lead them, but would their ideals be swayed when they realize the "progressives" have crippled our forces?
The KP’s pro-military stance would ensure our Landwehr will have sufficient numbers to support our standing army. Prussia’s only chance is through a stronger army. Our current forces will not suffice.
So the DFP would prefer to make Prussia a British puppet!for the most powerful empire in the world today is none other than the most liberal. Great Britain is feared and respected throughout the world for its industrial might, which supports its military muscle as a suit of armour supports a knight, and what, pray tell, do the poor, backward-thinking countryside reactionaries in the KP have to say about that I wonder?
Non-sense I wish to strengthen Prussia's regular army first and foremost not send them to sensitivity training as the DFP seems to prefer. The power of the Landwehr must not be underestimated. They are certainly not to be relied upon but they could be the difference between a war won or lost.Bah! What Herr Zorro speaks of is a contradiction in terms! He seeks to strengthen our armed forces not through the auspices of the military-industrial complex, but by relying on the petty militia! Need I remind you that "God is not on the side of the largest battalions, but on those who shoot best!?" How can our fighting men expect to cope against the enemy with their second-rate rifles, indeed how can our generals be expected to cope against our enemies with their second rate fighting men, such as the militia Herr Zorro suggests they rely upon?
