((I guess I'll get more into it with discussions once the primaries start, since we haven't really reached that point.))
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.
Rough numbers, I'd say at least 20, so I'd wait a few days and maybe at least one electoral cycle. Your party also sounds like it should be part of some broader reactionary movement. Historically, there were royalists in southern Chile, so I do feel that they should be represented in AAR somehow. Their stance was a bit different from yours, of course.How many people would have to join before we can start our own parties(with your permission, of course)
A bankrupt nation will only be weaker, impetuous hawk. An army cannot be sustained if its arms cannot be purchased, its ranks paid, and its manpower replenished. We have neither money nor men, only your hawkish tendencies. Tell me, what will we look like if all we care about is an army, not the public welfare? A corrupt military regime, that is what! When creditors swarm our government and our institutions, will you be satisfied that we have achieved your precious lands in Bolivia, at the cost of our treasury and our fiscal sovereignty? Do not let this piece of beef make your eyes stray away from the entire herd of cattle, General. "Glory"? The humiliation of national bankruptcy is no glory, sir! What honor shall we have when our treasury lays empty, our army in a state of mutiny due to a lack of money either way, our people suffering the cruel repressions of our financial deficiencies? What voice shall we command when the powers of Europe look upon our shores and see nothing but desolate Chileans who have no gold to offer and only a voice to whimper? They will think us both weak and inept! You may command your glory, but leave us to our own devices. Our present system must provide a gentler means of redressing your hatred towards Bolivia, your vainglorious demeanor. My dear Senate you must not adopt this evil measure! It is the work of the devil! Leave it for happier times, when we can afford to put ourselves on the fiery path of total destruction: never!And how can a nation that does not assert it's right to land that is rightfully it's own seek to survive? To quote a wise Roman Ruler, "To conquer is to endure". The Bolivians hold lands that rightfully belongs to Chile, and as such, we should do everything in our power to get that land back, should we not? When the Bolivians insult us, how should we respond? By letting them keep it? Hah! Foolishness I tell you. You want us to sit in our homes and twiddle our thumbs while the rest of the Latin States fight for supremacy? Where's the honor in that? The glory? Will the people of America del Norte and Europa look upon us favorably for that? No! They will think us weak! As will our own immediate neighbors, and war will be declared on us. If we are to fight a war, I for one would rather be on the offensive.
