Can I just remind everyone that the coming election (probably up tommorrow) is going to have a very different electoral system.

You guys are only going to be voting for the Chairman. The Workers' Vote has no baring in the Chairman selection.

Your going to be asked for both a first and second preference, although I shall allow you not to post a second preference if you wish. If one candidate gets 50% of the vote on first preference then they win, if not (most likely) I will add in the second preference and the candidate with the most votes wins.

The following persons are to be candidates for election:

Vladimir Lenin - for the Marxist-Leninists

Rosa Luxemburg - for the Luxemburgists

Eduard Bernstein - for the Democrats

Emma Goldman - for the Anarchists

Georges Sorel - for the Revolutionaries

The Militarists are not standing for the Chairmanship - instead they endorse Lenin and encourage their supporters to go with the M-Ls.

The Moderates are also not standing and encourage their supports to vote for either Lenin or Luxemburg.

On top of the Chairman vote we have the vote for the Assembly which shall be done entirely by the people (and now ALL the people).

Both the factions standing in the Chairman election and the two not shall compete this election. Realistically, although theoretically not neccessary, in order to form a stable government the new Chairman is going to have to cobble together a majority, or atleast a major chunk of support, from the Assembly.

Remember, the election IS NOT up so don't start voting. I'm just warning you of how things are goint to be done.

Shame about the Revolutionaries' reactionary stance on social reforms. I quite like some of their ideas. To all you Leninists: told you so! :p Long live Council Communism!

The Election of 1895

Following 5 years of Luxemburgist-Democrat rule the VSVR entered its latest electoral campaign with three issues dominating affairs. In order of importance from least to most: the economy, foreign affairs and the ‘scissors crisis’ between the worker and peasantry (which had take 45 years to finally come to a head).

However this election was to be fought in a very different way from in the past. Now the Chairman was to be elected entirely by the Party and Party members were encouraged, but not required to, place a first and second preference for Chairman. If no candidate could secure an absolute majority of votes on first preferences then second preferences were counted.

On top of this the Assembly was entirely elected by the people with every 10 seats translating into one position in the Central Committee. The Committee’s power would therefore be increased by its direct representation of the people. Finally the single largest faction in the Assembly, coalitions would not matter for this, would be allowed to appoint the Speaker of the Assembly who would hold powers above regular Committee members but below the Chairman.

5 of the 7 factions in the Republic were placing candidates for the Chairman election.



The Marxist-Leninists

Prospective Chairman: Lenin

Having spent more time as Chairman than any other Lenin has a wealth of experience. After another 5 years outside of the position of real power he has kept his political skills sharp and rebuilt support amongst the people. The Marxist-Leninist campaign uses Lenin’s permanent revolution policy as its lynchpin.

Position within Party: Far Left

Economic Policy:

Tariffs before taxation. We must tax imported goods before we resort to taxing our citizens. Meanwhile we must keep social spending as high as possible. Comrades, we realise that our fiscal problems are far from over, we realise that debt still lingers. Yet we cannot compromise on the livelihood of the Workers in favour of the livelihood of the Workers’ state.

Reform Policy:

Two social reforms.

We need greater safety regulations to protect the people and an 8 hour day to release them from the slavery of work. 9-5 not 8-6.

Scissors Crisis:

It seems that just 5 years of Luxemburgist-Democrat rule has ended the alliance between the worker and farmer which had lasted for 4 decades of the VSVR. They tried to buy off the peasants with cheap reforms that did not improve his conditions.

So long as the farmer and the worker exist the two, like the worker and the bourgeois, have differing interests. The farmer wants more for his output, as does the worker. However whilst the working having more will only mildly reduce the farmers’ income the farmer wanting more shall starve the worker. If we allow food prices to rise and industrial goods prices to fall millions of proletarians shall be put on the breadline. This is unacceptable.

Our best hope of easing the supply pressures upon the VSVR for food would be to open up access to large supplies of it. We must secure an open market to the Argentine Pampas, me must unite all Poland by taking the last of the Congress from the Russians. We must take Western Galicia from the Habsburgs, give the Hungarians and Ruthenians freedom and finally crack that snivelling Imperium.

If our access to food and demand for our industrial goods does not increase the ever more fragile alliance between the hammer and the sickle will almost certainly collapse.

Foreign Policy:

What use is a dove when you’re surrounded by nations who wish to destroy you? What use is arbitration when it merely delays conflict with your enemies at a time when they are weakest? What use is a revolutionary state which does not further the revolution?

Luxemburg, Liebknecht, Bernstein and Martov would bore you with tall tales of how the Republic cannot afford conflict financially. If need be we can simply raise funds my placing tariffs on imported goods or mildly adjusting spending and taxation. In the period of loose finances under Luxemburg we have seen how minor changes in spending and taxation can massively increase or decrease the final budget surplus or deficit. Use these tools flexibly to avoid the crippling debt of the Anarchist, the Luxemburgist and the Democrat.

It is the VSVR’s duty to liberate the entire world. Let us do so.

Possible Assembly Allies: Moderates, Militarists and (unlikely) Luxemburgists



Luxemburgists

Prospective Chairman: Rosa Luxemburg

After 5 successful years as Chairman Rosa Luxemburg was seeking re-election. She largely called for another 5 years of the same.

Position within Party: Moderate Right

Economic Policy:

A continuation of the Council Communist system which has served the Republic so well.

Reform Policy:

One social reform.

We need greater safety regulation in order to combat workplace injury.

Scissors Crisis:

We were the first government in the 45 year existence of this Republic to finally address the long ignored issues of the peasantry. We were the first government to grant them the right to vote and control over their local economies.

The 1892 Rebellion was not an act against the Luxemburgist government but an attack against the injustice the farmers have suffered for decades under various Marxist governments.

It is time to finally meet with the problems of the scissor crisis.

We must allow the price of food stuffs and raw materials to rise, slightly. However the current higher price of industrial goods shall remain. The state can take up the slack of highly priced industrial goods but in the past the slack of low price rural goods was taken up entirely by the farmer. Now we shall allow food prices to rise, ever so slightly, in order to relieve the pressure on the farmer. With their interests now represented in government after this election we should be much more able to deal with the long oppressed farmers.

We cannot allow the workers to become a new ruling class. In this Republic there should be no classes.

Foreign Policy:

We are currently engaged against struggles with counterrevolutionaries in several Comintern states whilst our funding for revolutionary movements around the world continues to swell. Yet Lenin claims that we are not doing anything to further the revolution.

One does not need to send millions of young men to their deaths on the cold Russian step, on the Parisian street and the Austrian Alp just to prove your commitment to the revolution. There are other means to furthering its successes.

We propose sending a detachment of soldiers to Chile in order to protect the gains the revolution has already made and to help further it if need be.

Possible Assembly Allies: Democrats, Anarchists, Moderates, (unlikely) Marxist-Leninists and (unlikely) Revolutionaries



Revolutionaries

Prospective Chairman: Georges Sorel

The youngest faction in the Republic, born out of the 1892 Revolution, was the wild beast of the Revolutionaries. Pulled by differing interests in several directions it called for greater equality in all things. Even if this meant compromising the Marxist principles that had been followed by almost every government the Republic had ever had.

Position within Party: Unreadable – leaning towards Right

Economic Policy:

If our Republic had no industries then taxes could plummet to almost meaningless levels. If our Republic had no industry the farmer would not be forced to pay unspeakable quantities in order to support his urban Comrade.

Yet we have become a slave Republic. The rural slaves toil each day to support his urban slave master. Is this socialism? Is this what farmers have fought and died for almost half a century now? Do we not deserve equality too?

Industrial expansion must be slowed to a halt in all industries that do not support themselves. We should also concentrate on expanding the newly emerging high-tech industries – these shall provide goods that are not over produced, that are new and desirable and that are profitable.

Tariffs before taxes, always.

Social spending should also be kept as high as possible.

Reform Policy:

The Workers’ papers effectively monopolise the Republic’s media. It is time to take them down a size. The state must provide funding for a rural based newspaper that shall represent our views for all to see. The reason such a paper cannot be supported now is because there is little access to media in the country compared to the cities. The state must ensure that every citizen has reliable access to media and the news. The worker-master cannot continue to push the face of the farmer-servant into the mud by denying him the consciousness provided by access to the news.

Shorter working days and lower minimum wages? It seems the worker government wishes to destroy rural communities. Our collectives are left with little surplus income due to the hateful price manipulations of the worker government. Then we are told we cannot work more than 10 hours a day and must pay our farmers a greater wage or release them from employment. This means we have to release thousands of men from the countryside each month who in turn head to the cities where the join the urban proletariat and place an even heavier burden on the countryside which in turn forces us to give up more men. Enough! Easing these worker imposed slave regulations might release some of the intolerable pressure we suffer.

However social regulations are not the enemy. Some are very beneficial to the people. We propose increasing safety regulations – these regulations have greatly reduced farm accidents in rural and urban areas and benefit all of society.

We should also increase the unemployment subsidy. We have already witnessed the inability of industry to provide work for all and must be prepared for another outbreak of mass unemployment.

All anti religious legislation and policies must be ended. Freedom of religion for all! We do not care if a man is Christian, Jewish, Muslim or even Animist. All that matters is that he holds socialism dear to his heart, cares for his family and for the Republic. What he worships in his own time is his business and his alone.

The Scissors Crisis

Few social crises are so entirely man made as the so called ‘scissors crisis’. This crisis is the ultimate example of the degradation of the revolution and the death of the spirit of ’48.We were once a Republic dedicated to freedom and equality. We are now a Republic whose sole purpose is creating a new dictatorship of the narrow proletarian majority. This is against socialism and against all morality.

We propose an end to all price manipulations. End the impoverishing regulations of the state! Save the farmer from poverty!

We also support the idea of acquiring new food exporting markets for the VSVR in order to relieve the inevitable pressure the hike in food prices and fall in industrial good prices shall have on the workers.

Unlike the worker factions we have no desire to create a new ruling class. We only desire equality for all, privilege for no one.

Foreign Policy:

We should both acquire new lands and expand the International into food exporting regions and unite the Republic with our German kin to the South and Polish brothers to the East.

Possible Assembly Allies: Anarchists and (unlikely) Luxemburgists



Anarchists

Prospective Chairman: Emma Goldman

After 6 wilderness years under Lenin the Anarchist faction was revived by Rosa Luxemburg in 1890. Since then the faction has built up support but cannot come even close to matching the support it once had prior to the Civil War.

Position with Party: Far Right

Economic Policy:

We support the Luxemburgist system of Council Communism. This is the way forward for socialism, not the statism of Lenin.

Taxes and spending must remain flexible and be able to react to any changes in the situation.

Reform Policy:

We cannot continue to support reforms that are harmful for the farmers. We should raise enlarge the maximum working day – farmers traditionally work long hours and our regulations are forcing them into poverty by denying them the ability to properly finish their work.

We must do all we can to relieve the rural proletariat. For they are a part of the proletariat and as such must be treated equally.

Scissors Crisis:

We cannot afford to end price manipulations altogether.

The Anarchists propose a truly Communistic solution.

The state shall meet with a large Council representing each and every rural Soviet. The state and the Council shall then agree upon fair prices for food stuffs and other agricultural goods. The state shall then distribute these products to the people and industries in the cities upon the principle of ‘’to each according to his need’’. This shall be paid for by a small food levy tax upon urban proletarians which shall be equal for all. Enough state capitalism. Let Communism rule.

Foreign Policy:

No more killing. We support the ideal of peaceful revolution. Encourage revolution abroad but do not force it upon those who live in our borderlands by sending millions of men to against millions of enemies.

Socialism is an ideology of peace yet it seems to have become the standard of war.

Possible Assembly Allies: Luxemburgists, Democrats and Revolutionaries



Democrats

Prospective Chairman: Eduard Bernstein

Peace, Democracy and Freedom above all else. This is the mantra of Bernstein’s revisionistic Marxist faction.

Position within Party: Centre Right

Economic Policy:

Marxist economic policies.

They have served us well in the past and they continue to do so now.

We must hold two key targets whenever we consider economic policy – keeping unemployment low and growth high. If we ensure these two targets are achieved then prosperity shall follow.

Reform Policy:

Greater safety regulations are needed.

Scissors Crisis:

The plight of the farmers seems to have been exaggerated. Price manipulations do indeed leave them with the short end of the stick, and this is wrong, but they are not a people struggling to survive or slaves to the workers. They enjoy a good quality of life, have plentiful food and can purchase industrial goods which are still comparatively cheap.

We propose slight relaxations of the manipulations of food prices but no more is necessary.

Foreign Policy:

Have the Chileans not shown us that the most successful path towards spreading the revolution, and the only just one, is through democratic action?

Socialism without democracy is like a body without oxygen. We have witnessed ‘socialist’ states without democracy (in Spain for example) and they now require our troops to prop up their regimes. No more dictatorships!

Nor more war!

Possible Assembly Allies: Luxemburgists and Anarchists

All readers may vote for two of either:

Marxist-Leninists

Luxemburgists

Democrats

Anarchists

Revolutionaries

I will not accept your vote if you vote for an individual you want to be chairman eg Sorel and will only accept your vote if you name the faction of your choice.

Please place your vote in a separate post from your comment OR place it in bold alongside your comment.

You are not required to post two votes but please make it clear which is your first preference and which is your second preference. If you do not then I shall assume the faction posted first is your first preference.

Remember that in this election we have a new system. You’re ONLY electing the Chairman. If one faction does not get 50% or more of your votes then I shall include second preferences so make both of your choices wisely.

The Assembly is entirely elected by the People so you have no bearing in this.

I encouraged you to align yourself with a faction and campaign and argue for its success. However spamming will not be tolerate (I will warn you if I think you are spamming).

Good luck Comrades!

Voting shall close at 3PM on Wednesday. Get voting! :D

This is the most interesting election yet. I decided to boost both Revolutionaries and Anarchists, two factions that can be very interesting. I hope they can form a coalition with Rosa, and thus limit the Democrat's influence.

Seems there has been a little burst of support for the Revs and Anarchists.

As a side note I've just finished doing the Assembly elections. Down there things are pretty mad and very tight.

For the Assembly I've come up with 7 possible coalitions only 2 of which can muster over 50% of seats in support and both would mean a faction aligning with an ''unlikely'' coalition partner and both would leave us with a different ruling faction in the ''lower House'' of our democracy. I'll probably appoint the ruling alliance in line with whoever wins here.

Did you mention that the choices have to be different?
I do not see why I could not vote twice for the same faction.

If not allowed thus, I shall edit this post later.

Please tell me whether this is allowed or not.
You have to have different 2nd preferences .... obviously.

At the mo I have you down as 1st Anarchist and no 2nd. If you do add a 2nd please post again so I see it.

May I ask who has the most seats currently? Also how many factions are eliminated in the second round?

I won't tell you who the largest faction is but I'll give you some info which probably won't suprise you.

The three largest factions are the Luxemburgists, Revolutionaries and Marxist-Leninists (in no particular order). Of these three the largest has just 8 seats more than the smallest. So there is no single faction utterly dominating things.

In the 2nd round no factions are eliminated. I shall just add in 2nd preferences. Then the faction with the most votes wins.
