Well....just finished reading the entire AAR. Actually the last 3 days i spent my free time at home to read more and MORE AND MORE :p:p , it is really amazing!!! I also bought the Victoria 2 but i haven't received it yet.......oh wel........ my first vote comrades.



Comrades,Working Class of VSVR, honourable citizens


Have we already forgotten our marxists values ? In the past 3 elections the voters preffered the Marxists-Leninists , But NO , the counter-revollutionary elements inside the Party managed to form coalitions that has no other purpose than destroying the Great Socialist Revollution, How long we will just be viewers ? Do we have to wait for another Gorbatcof [ and yes i am not very good with english ] Comrades ? NO , i reply , we wont wait for anyone to destroy the party and the revollution , we will fight, not to the end but to the start, the start of our new , amazing socialist lives ( :p ) .
I stand here , and i accuse the party's majority that has forgotten the reason of why we are here, we are not here for peace,for moderation,for co-existence. We are here for Socialism,Revollutionary War,Workers' bread... They say "peace" , they say "moderation" , they say " Hail the Farmers " , well , i only see a bow and a cooperation with the capitalist states, states that have oppresed their people for long... how will the British worker feel when he sees the Motherland of the Revollution be friend with the British Capital ? I also see a policy of encouraging the free market, this combined with the right of farmers to vote will only lead to more and more increase of capitalist elements within the VSVR.

Instead I propose :

1. Encourage the Farm Collectives and the Communes , give the farmers the right to vote, but make them proletarians of the Village.
2. The truth is that no matter what the people believe , church in its' entire history has played a reactionary-counter revollutionary role. Everyone is free to believe that drugs are good , but NOBODY should be encouraged to take some.
3. Central Planning for the economy , the workers should be the master of their fates.
4. RealPolitik in foreign affairs , take chances as they come
5. 75% of the seats to be choosen by the People , 25% by the Party , encourage real democracy
6. Proggress towars communist, socialism isn't enough
7. 8h/8h/8h , we are a workers' state after all...

I vote for

1. Marxist - Leninists
2. Luxemburgist


I also call for a union between those parties, Lenin and Rosa can lead us toward communism , despite their differences

Apart from telling me that no one wants Bernstein to be Chairman these results mean that the 2nd prefs would come in as the Revs have less than 50%.

So With 2nd prefs added in here is the final tally:

Revs: 12
Anarchists: 8
Lux: 5
M-Ls: 4

So if things finished like this Sorel would become Chairman.

Problems of the Period of Transition

Even before 1848 Marx’s comrades in Cologne, Manchester, and Eisenach knew that the path that would lead humanity from capitalism to communism would be long, winding, and torturous to puzzle out. Not only did they see the great proletarian revolution in the far distance, a prediction whose fallacy we, as free people building socialism today, can only be thankful did not come true, but they realized that further struggle would remain necessary even after the working class had seized power. The issues that our Republic faces today all stem from inadequate understanding of the problems posed in the period of transition, in our own faction yes, but even more so in the governing Democrat-Luxemburgist coalition. In brief, these problems include various forms of continued class conflict, both within the revolutionary regime between classes that in the old society were non-exploitative, and outside it between the free peoples of the world and the imperialist bourgeoisie. Every issue facing our Republic can be analyzed on this class basis. Like all class conflicts, they can only be solved by one side’s victory, not the common ruin of compromise.

The one faction besides our own that seems to be groping towards clarity on the reality of the problems posed by the period of transition are the Revolutionaries. However, despite their name, they approach them only in a negative fashion and in the most brazenly reactionary manner. They talk about class conflict between urban and rural workers. There is certainly antagonism between town and country in our Republic, and there will be so until the end of the period of transition. The Revolutionaries, however, far from being partisans of the rural worker, speak in bosses’ language! In their election programme, for all their bluster about enslavement of the rural by the urban, they complain about having to release “their” workers after ten hours of labor, of having to pay them well enough to survive. This is the propaganda of profit, and no worker, rural or urban, could mistake this for anything other than an attack on their very livelihood. The only people mad enough to be swayed are the idealists in the People’s Party who care more for bourgeois democratic “rights” and highfalutin language than for the real welfare of the people. As for continuing urbanization, their stand against it is simply reaction against the progressive movement of history.

Against this, the Marxist-Leninists put forward a policy of common betterment for all workers, urban and worker, in our Republic. The eight-hour day is only further fulfillment of the real liberation for which the Marxist-Leninist faction has always pushed. The same arguments for it apply as applied to the twelve-hour and current ten-hour days: the liberation of workers’ bodies from work allows them to become more well-rounded, more human, human beings, and to enrich their thoughts so as to become better fighters for further liberation. Keeping workers at work for longer than necessary – and with the advances in machinery and electricity work for longer than eight hours is no longer necessary in the factory or in the field – can only serve the interests of profit. Enchaining men and women to jobs is real slavery. Paying them less even as they work more adds insult to injury. And forcing them to work by threatening to starve them is inhuman and betrays the worst influences of capitalist ideology at work in the minds of the Revolutionaries.

The Marxist-Leninists stand with the real movement of history. The proletariat has moved from strength to strength. Its numbers exploded in both capitalism and socialism – the Revolutionaries want to reverse this as well, a further sign of their reactionism. Its political power has grown with each new revolution, with each new conquest of freedom. Its members’ humanity has grown with its progressive liberation from the old forms of labor and its acquisition of the means to live healthy lives. And its culture has grown from a culture of resistance to bourgeois tyranny to a culture of glorious liberation. This is something to be celebrated, and the Marxist-Leninists welcome the rural workers who migrate from the countryside, where there is nothing but labor and schemers who want to force more labor, to the fountains of the world’s civilization. We welcome the noble altruism that spurs men to fight for their brothers still oppressed by capitalism, or against those who would restore it.

The working class is the revolutionary class in history. Stand with it for its self-liberation, fight for its cause. Vote Marxist-Leninist, Ballot Line 2.
