I, of course, vote against any plan to give up German land.

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 vote in favour of the plan to retake Somerset, and against the plan to relinquish it unfought.
((So, I finished playing the update [finally!], but I won't get a chance to post it tonight. Tomorrow is possible, but Thursday is the most likely candidate.
BTW, does a country automatically surrender at 100% war score in Vicky 2? I can't remember if they do or not. I know they do in CK2 and [I think] EUIV.))
If the foreign minister will forgive the impudence, I would strongly suggest that the diplomatic corps be directed to isolate France by negotiating individual peaces with each of its allies, even at the cost of denying our allies some of their war aims. It is clear that the French imagine that they might still triumph by waiting for their friends to deliver them. This delusion must be broken with all possible speed.
The Ministry shall continue work on the Victory Initiatives I introduced when the war began. God willing, we will have no need of more by the next meeting of the Reichstag.

You act as this is some kind of great victory. Hundreds of thousands of germans dead, and for what? For a few lands in France that will inevitably rebel? This is no victory, it should be a time of mourning. The economy is in ruins, the people bleeding out in some french battlefield, that is no victory to me.((Can you make a list of all of our side's demands? Surely they must exceed 100% when combined.))
This past year the people of the Republic has shown the fortitude and courage that has allowed Germany to become the greatest nation on earth. Despite the death of hundreds of thousands of people and enemies all around us, the people of Germany rallied to defend democracy from her enemies. Thanks to the sacrifice of our citizenry, Germany has emerged triumphant, if bloodied. We must now craft a peace that allows the world to be safe for democracy.
Our economy lies in ruins from the war and you want to spend even more money on unneeded subsidies ? I instead propose a temporary reversal of some granted subsidies and such so our economy can recover.I propose that we will instate unemployment subsidies, for our industry will not be able to employ the soldiers returning home after peace talks have been concluded, meaning many of our brave citizens will not be cared for after sacficing so much in this war.

I would rather have a portion of our population suffer now then our entire population when the economy collapses and a lot more people will be unemployed as our economy comes to a true, terrifying grinding halt. A policy of economic austerity and careful rebuilding is needed in this time, not unneeded spendings like the one you propose.So you would let our people suffer!? My friend, the State does not exist to care for the economy, it exists to care for its citizens and protect them from harm, reversal of subsidies would lead to suffering across our great Republic. My friend, our people have fallen victim to a war that is not theirs, will you let them fall victim to an economy lead by greed rather than alturism even after the war has taken such a great toll on our people?
