Pacific America Rising — The View From 2030

  • Through 2021 Congress remains all but deadlocked, the Democratic party’s razor-thin majorities in the House and Senate face a nearly-united Republican front possessing the most deadly weapon in Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s obstructive arsenal: the filibuster.
  • 2022 marks yet another bitter, difficult political year, with passions running hot as the economy continues to experience a bumpy recovery from the pandemic and the Midterm election cycle begins, halting almost all legislative progress in Washington D.C.
  • 2023 sees a nation gripped by political paralysis as the Republican-controlled House submerges the Biden Administration in investigations and impeachment proceedings, egged on by their constituents’ ongoing belief he is not the legitimate President. Forced to govern through executive order, the Administration’s polling crashes throughout the year.
  • All Federal agencies operating on Pacific American soil legally answered to the Pacific Transitional Government.
  • All existing Federal rights and responsibilities except defense — in other words, non-National Guard military forces stationed in the region — were placed in the hands of the PTG.
  • The Pacific House of Representatives consisted of 71 members, and the Senate 8 members, those who had already been elected to serve in D.C. by the voters.
  • The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals would be considered the interim federal Supreme Court.
  • The Executive Branch would be a headed by the four governors and the winner of the national popular vote in the 2024 Presidential Election acting as a single voice, each member holding veto powers over federal issues.
  1. A simple yes/no vote on a Constitutional Amendment fundamentally restructuring the Federal government to better serve Pacific America.
  2. Elect the officials who would fill the seats of the Pacific American federal government.
