I, naturally, oppose the vote of no confidence against my party leader and question why it has been raised in the first place.

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.
I for one would like to welcome Herr Liebknecht to the Imperialist Party as the convenor of our new left wing, and support his recommendation for the elevation of Herr von Altmark instead of that blight upon our Government that is our current Foreign Minister.
I must protest this wanton aggression! Sending the people of Germany to die is liberal? It is despicable! We do not need to conscript 300,000 German fathers and sons to fight for Comrade Meiningen's blood-thirst for false liberation. Leave these men to fight in the factories, and in the fields.
Can Germany even afford 100 new brigades? Can we afford to send 300,000 men into the Reichswehr? What will suffer? German industry? German agriculture? Does Germany have a wealth of gold we're sitting on to subsidize this? Will the tax payer be forced to shoulder the burden of Meiningen's war plans? What about the resources absorbed by 100 new brigades? The German people should not give up their food, clothing, and goods to the Army to fund a war that is asinine at best.
I shall not pay a pfennig in war taxes, and I encourage every patriotic German to do the same. We shall not be lead into the darkness by a lunatic, intent on driving a war between us and Poland.

Article II. Upon ratification of this bill, the ' Second Italian Home Rule ' act shall be declared null, void and completely repealed with the fullest extent in which it may be repealed. The Presidency of Italy shall be immediately dissolved, and the Parliament established by the Italian Home Rule Act shall be henceforth immediately dissolved.

This Commission shall not have the force of law, but shall, annually, deliver to the Reichstag of the German Republic an update on any grievances, concerns or problems being faced by the ethnic groups of Germany.
