THE IMPERIAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY

Opening Rally of the Electoral Campaign
Syrelwynn, Elsyran


A rally was organized in the city of Syrelwynn in Elsyran to announce the merger of the Suthergold Democrats with the Elsyran Democrats. Having earned the endorsement of Count Hartmut Aldric, Regent of Shireroth, large crowds of thousands from all over Elsyran and Suthergold descended on the city.

Arriving three days before the rally, the Regent came to Syrelwynn and opened a public beer garden in celebration for the people of the city and the arriving crowds. Hundreds of barrels of beer and wine were brought from Goldshire Hamlet and Goldfield with the intent of securing the support of the locals for the impromptu rally.

The beer gardens and merry entertainment for the public garnered a lot of attention, especially after the arrival of the new leader of the party, Séan O’Callaghan.

Mr. O’Callaghan was one of the early settlers and builders of the city of Goldfield, the new capital of the county of Elsyran. He served as its first Marshal of the Drains, overseeing the construction, operation and continued improvement of the water infrastructure of the new city. He was known for delivering a water treatment plant crucial for the success of the city under budget and ahead of schedule.

During the contentious election for Mayor of Goldfield in 1657, O’Callaghan challenged the Regent-endorsed incumbent (and O’Callaghan’s former boss), Cameron Derby. The race was known for being hard fought, with the candidates trading barbs on the issues of infrastructure and the city budget.

O’Callaghan came within 5 points of overtaking O’Callaghan, amid widespread allegations of voter intimidation and vote buying. Ever the honorable gentleman, however, O’Callaghan conceded the race when the results were announced and instead sought employment under the Comital Government. He secured the position of the Count’s Lieutenant to the City of Goldfield – an appointed position representing the interests of the Regent in the City of Goldfield and its construction projects.

This brought the former political rivals into heated and often public head to heads over matters of policy, particularly in infrastructure and urban planning. Their epic fights would feature prominently in the local tabloids and papers, with the voters consuming the details of their public disagreements voraciously.

In the weeks leading up to the national elections, O’Callaghan grew tired of the conflicts with the Mayor and resigned from his appointed position to join the Elsyran Democrats. Encouraged by friends and family to seek grander political ambitions, he joined the Elysran Democrats and was quickly raised by the party membership to lead the party’s Goldfield operation.

The news of the dueling politicians in Goldfield spread quickly through the regional papers – not many places in Elsyran had quite fully embraced the system of democracy yet they were versed in elections since the Eadric era electoral battles between the political parties of the time.

The arrival of O’Callaghan to the city attracted many who were curious to catch a glimpse of this respected local leader. He joined the public beer gardens and mingled with the crowds, joining some of the matrons in pouring beers for the crowds.

The morning of the rally, the Mayor of Goldfield roundly endorsed his rival Séan O’Callaghan for leader of the Imperial Democratic Party. He also announced that he was abandoning his independent status and joining the party as well - he'd turn out to be a key surrogate for the campaign throughout Elsyran.

THE IMPERIAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY

A GREAT SOCIETY

Blueprint For A Greater Shireroth


A dark shroud of war – now a civil war – continues to darken the skies of our beloved country. Must the people continue to toil and work hard while the state continues to prosecute endless wars and conflicts abroad?

It’s time to invest in our own country.

The Imperial Democrats believe that instead of funding the endless war machine that gobbles up our resources, we build a better government, invest in our national infrastructure, invest in our national defense, and extend our loyal friendship to those who can be relied upon to maintain peace and cooperation in peace and coexistence.

The Imperial Democrats believe that it’s time to invest in large infrastructure programs that can make commerce and trade easier, and improved national immediate connectivity in case of war and disasters: such as, but not limited to, build new hospitals, new schools, new roads, new railroads, new airports, new canals and yes – not only to finish King Ryker’s Wall but extend the Wall project across more of our country.

The Imperial Democrats believe in fighting to bring our values to Shirekeep: hard work, community, courage, merriment and rejoicing, and a zealous love of construction and sustainable development.

The Imperial Democrats believe that to secure the success of Shireroth, we must begin to prove our policies and our solutions work, and as representatives of the Goldshirian people in Shirekeep we will fight for the following goals and ideals:
• Maintain the faith in the Gods and work constantly to eradicate the threat of daemons and abhorrent faiths that attack the core of the national spirit, taint our communities, and erode national sovereignty;

• Provide the full blessings of Shirerithian citizenship to denizens;

• Invest in the construction of a national system of highways; a series of regional airports to connect remote areas of the country; and extend King Ryker’s Wall all the way to Lywall;

• Nationalize all corporate bodies that do government business and ensure that the practice ends in order to stamp out corporate corruption and increase accountability;

• Build a National Redoubt system in Benacia in cooperation with local governments to provide for the defense of the people and the country;

• Secure funding for the construction of new roads, railways and airports in Elsyran and Suthergold, including the completion of the construction of the new capital, Goldfield;

• Strengthen the Elsyran and Suthergold Militias to ensure the best defense of our own communities and people;

• Create national programs to help poor individuals and families secure safe housing, a job and food while they seek stable employment or care for a sick or pregnant family member;

• Fully fund and provide for the construction of schools and universities around our country and ensure that poor and disadvantaged citizens of Shireroth can afford to pursue an education to help them secure jobs in their local communities;

• Ensure national happiness and merriment by funding a network of nationalized public houses, theaters, venues and art schools to foster the development of our national identity and culture;

• Commit the state to provide free beer, free wine and free bread in days of national joy and merriment such as coronations, national feasts, Cedrist holidays, and high and important regional parties or feasts;

• Fulfill the dream of Count Audun Joel and fully fund the reconstruction and restoration of our national capital, and provide for its fair, free and honored governance as a capital of a Great Empire;

• Maintain the importance of the SANE Alliance, and seek reform in said body to aid in its expansion and permanence;

• Nurture the special relationship Shireroth has with its Sister Realm of Natopia, and continue its improvement;

• Reduce taxes and ensure the wise spending of the Kaiser's Purse, and ensure that all Shirerithian citizens pay their fair share into the development and rebuilding of the country according to their means and assets;

• Restrict legal immigration and residency to Shireroth only to those citizens of countries that have good diplomatic relations with Shireroth.

FINANCING THE CONSTRUCTION OF A BETTER EMPIRE
The Great Society - Imperial Democratic Party

GOLDFIELD, ELSYRAN -- The Imperial Democratic Party today released a set of proposals to finance the ambitious construction programmes that have been announced as part of the main goals and objectives of the IDP in the Folksraad and the Adelsraad.

In a press conference held in front of the Goldfield City House, Sean O'Callaghan unveiled a proposal to create an Imperial National Infrastructure Reinvestment Bank to help finance the construction of new roads, railways, airports, canals, ports, schools, hospitals and aqueducts throughout the country.

Imperial Democrat Leader Sean O'Callaghan announced that an Imperial National Infrastructure Reinvestment Bank would borrow 60 billion Erb of funding from the Kaiser's Purse over 10 years to invest in infrastructure. The Bank would also seek private investment. "If we can make sure good hearted ol' citizens contribute, and our construction companies get priority in bidding for those contracts, we can leverage hundreds of billions in private investment and avoid debt," explained Mr. O'Callaghan.

The Bank would also have the power to conduct hearings, issue subpoenas, obtain information from any other national agency, accept for funding any infrastructure project with a large potential national commitment, and the authority to determine the appropriate share of spending for each project. The Bank would also act as a centralized entity to provide financing for qualified infrastructure projects; issue general purpose infrastructure bonds, and provide direct subsidies to qualified infrastructure projects from amounts made available from the issuance of such bonds.

According to O'Callaghan, the Bank's "work will be determined by what will maximize our safety and security and ability to compete" and it would "create millions of new jobs", mainly in the construction industry.

Remarks addressed by Isabella Simrani-Kalirion, Chairwoman of the Nationalist and Humanist Party, to a rally of the faithful held in Musica on 09.XIV.1660:
“The proposal for a national redoubt would tie this great Imperial Republic of ours to a defensive doctrine of the static defence, ceding the initiative to our enemies. Every fortified facility at home is one less gravtank, one less bomber, one less missile corvette available to our theatre commands and banner groups. To starve our mobile forces of resource in favour of fixed facilities is to surrender the freedom of manoeuvre, which will have the effect of permitting our hated foes to rove about the world at will, even to the very margins of our Benacian empire, and be denied the means of an active response.

As to the concept of the national redoubt and the function it would serve, I would say to you that we already have that place for that purpose – the city of Shirekeep itself, the pivot upon which our entire Imperial system turns. Indeed, it is a matter of sacred prophecy that the walls of that eternal city shall bear witness to the last stand not only of this Imperial Republic but of all humanity and the gods as well. Whoever says to the contrary is a thrice accursed heretic and must be dealt with in the most severe of terms.

We have, with our armies, our air forces, and our armadas, already established the layered defence by which Benacia itself has become our national redoubt – the bastion that is our shelter and the point from which our Imperial Forces can in safety sally forth to contest dominion of this world against the enemies of humanity.

The utility of King Ryker's Wall is not in that it serves as a fixed line of defence against an enemy invasion, for that purpose it is almost assuredly useless, but as hardened line of communications and supply from which our forces, engaged in the battle to assert our sovereignty over the Shire Sea against the wretched Jing and any other enemy this corrupted world has to offer, can securely conduct their forward operations for the defence of this continent.

Only a fool would put his faith in barriers alone. Build a wall – they say! As though it were a solution to all their problems, Idiots – I say! There is no barrier in all of human history that has not been overcome or circumvented by human ingenuity. A line is only as good or as adequate as the force assigned to protect that line. Without vigilance, without swift detection, without a prompt response, and without ruthless and efficient action, any barrier, not matter how well appointed is merely a mound of concrete and metal heaped with earth. Let us under no circumstances think that building a barrier can ever be a substitute for a politically educated armed forces, constabulary, and populace, ready, willing and able to kill without hesitation in the defence of their homeland! Without eternal vigilance, and without closing our hearts to pity, we will never cease to be vulnerable to the wiles and stratagems of an enemy that will never hesitate to turn our humanitarian impulses and superior civilisational values against us.

There are those – over indulged drunken rustics, who question the cost of sustaining our Imperial Forces, the greatest military force this continent has ever assembled. Unrivalled in all the world and in all of history. They would much rather have a tax break and subsidised beer for their public holidays. Those louts! What base creatures they are! They would forgo the glory of Our Imperial Republic for their own personal comfort. This is how the debasement of our democracy would begin, as self-serving politicians throw ever more crumbs of material comfort to a populace that gradually loses its hardness and become habituated to the easy life. Would the day come when a decadent nobility and a mollycoddled populace no longer care to take up their own defence but rather 'outsource' this onerous and dangerous task to mercenaries and foreigners? On that day our Imperial Republic will die. A nation that favours material comfort over self-determination is a nation that deserves to be burned from the face of this world!

This then is why we insist upon the maintenance of the Imperial Forces at the highest level of preparedness, irrespective of cost, and this is why we also insist upon the distinction between citizen and denizen. Citizenship is not bestowed by right. It is earned by contribution and sacrifice. How can it be fair that those who contribute no more to the safety of the Imperial Republic than their taxes are offered a voters franchise of the same value of those who shed their blood or devote their lives to the state through the nobility of service?

We have built this political system over generations of struggle to provide for the safety and material comfort of our denizens, and we provide avenues for those who wish to advance themselves in service to the Imperial Republic. The surest path to citizenship is through service as a Loyal Subject in the Imperial Forces. Denizens and loyal subjects enjoy protections under the law that would be the envy of those wretches who rejoice in the appellation of citizen in lesser lands. Why should we wish to change that merely because the Reform Society has gotten the idea into their head that 'everyone must be equal' for some damned spurious reason that they never care to or are able to articulate.

And here in Musica, you have a reformist government – a painfully liberal Vicereine, much afflicted with concern and compassion for the human condition. Yet where is she? WHERE IS SHE?”

[Audience erupts into cat-calls, cheers, and chants of 'Where is She'. Over the last fortnight the N&H/IRP has been heavily trailing attack lines against the Vicereine of Brookshire, citing her as an example of ineffectual liberalism, across all forms of media to which its deep pocket books can obtain purchase.]

“Only the Imperial Republican Party, and the Nationalist and Humanist Party in Elwynn, has the stomach for the ongoing fight to establish and sustain our Imperial Republic in its rightful place as the hegemon of this entire continent. Without our sacrifices on your behalf, the wealth and treasures of central and western Benacia would cease to flood eastwards to Ardashirshahr, to Shirekeep, to Teldrin, to Musica. Instead you would only receive what you could afford at the market rate, the bidder from Passio-Corum or Stormark enjoying the same access to purchase those products which you alone presently have the first pick and the first fruits from. This is the purpose of our empire, and this is why it must continue to endure.

To this end therefore, regardless of our station in life, we as a people must continue to work, breed, and die in the holy cause of advancing and sustaining this eternal empire. Let all who wish us to retreat from the fulfilment of our manifest destiny be reviled as traitors! The Benacian Reconquest so valiantly begun in the reign of Kaiseress Noor will attain its culmination in the reign of her most worthy grandson.”

[A brief fanfare plays over the audio system to drown out mocking laughter at the mention of the Kaiser.]

“By the grace of the Highest Divinity, Zurvan supported by Mors and Viviantia, this great sacred and holy nation shall advance to victories as yet undreamed of! Death Spare the Kaiser! Long Live the Empire!”

[More fanfare, combined with uplifting patriotic music, plays over the sound systems in Musica's fireproofed concert hall. Many attendees appear to be applauding and cheering without prompting from the party choreographers...]

THE GREAT SOCIETY EXPRESS


The days after the campaign launch were a flurry of activity for the Imperial Democrats: the party organization began to gear up.

The Imperial Democratic Party headquarters in Goldfield began to receive reports from local chapters that volunteers were gathering in multiple cities across Goldshire to knock on doors, distribute campaign literature, organize block parties and pub crawls to mobilize voters in favor of the party.

Party chapters have fully incorporated and begun organizing local operations in the cities of Goldfield, Goldshire Hamlet, Syerlwynn, Cortallia-Rathwood, Kingsgate, Sutherland, Zolt, Wendor, Chryse, Aurum, Mesior, and Cabbagefall.

Candidates of the Party List, Party Grassroots Leaders, Voter Coalition Committees, and Canvassers were deployed across all of Goldshire, signaling the Imperial Democrats’ intentions of contesting elections beyond its intended plans.

--------------------------------------------------------


Gala Dinner hosted by the Regent at Goldcastle, with guests: local nobles, and prominent business leaders in the construction and manufacturing industries.

Speakers: Count Hartmut Aldric, Regent of the Imperial Republic of Shireroth
Sean O’Callaghan, Leader of the Imperial Democrats

[quote=The Regent]”The Adelsraad is the body that represents the nobles of this nation. The Folksraad represents the workers, business leaders, families and individuals. If the Imperial Democrats want to truly put a mark in Shirerithian politics, the party will have to navigate a delicate balance of policymaking, and balancing conflicting interests. That is the nature of politics. The agenda of the Imperial Democrats is to bring more investment here to Goldfield, to Mesior, to Syrelwynn, to Wendor, to Kingsgate. This party will bring better roads, better airports, better ports. This party will work to build up the defenses of the country while bringing our boys and girls back home to help rebuild the country. We cannot let the dark days of the Vanic daemons and civil war return to our lands, and with the Imperial Democrats, you will get Goldshirians for Goldshirians, people representing the interests of our people undividedly. That’s why this election I put my trust in Sean O’Callaghan and the Imperial Democrats. You should too!”[/quote]

[quote=Sean O’Callaghan]”Esteemed Highnesses and Worships, I am a working man, but I aspire to elevate our families and communities together, for a better Shireroth. We have a good bunch of virtuous souls that have stepped forward, many of Your Highnesses and Guests know many of them. Our communities have lost too many souls in war to be careless about waging it. Our people have bled and fought in foreign lands, and while the purpose was high and true, we sacrificed much and obtained too little. The shroud of war continues to blind our country, and what we must do is build our industries, our culture, our economy to provide a new future for all of us. More Shirerithian products to export and bring money here. Prosperity at home, and prosperity by trading with our allies abroad. That’s what I will fight for, please vote for the Imperial Democrats.”[/quote]
