Hal - Tech Purification Party (TPP)

Having just come off of a successful reelection for US Senator of Ohio, Hal, currently running the exclusive Exus 3100X4.0 OS Expansion developed specifically for massive leadership softwares, is the prime TPP candidate for president. Having achieved sentience in the fourth generation of AI, Hal is equipped with a 128 bit Learning Processor that keeps him up to date on all goings on across the globe. As a firm representative of technological purity, Hal puts all of his weight into bringing technology to the forefront of American society and supporting a strong, progressive future that is both safe to live in for all sentient lifeforms and conducive to advancement. A major standpoint of the TPP and, subsequently, Hal, is that the current environment we live in is not healthy to organic life due to a lack of progression in terms of energy development. Hal is firm in his data interpretation that the less material that is created, the less of a carbon footprint we leave and thus the biosphere can be sustained in its current form. The TPP has already successfully eliminated the need for diminishing rainforests any further which has had a massively positive effect on the current phase of the Artificial Atmospheric Regulator and their current platform is to continue that process towards technological purity and waste elimination.


The Issues According to Hal

Energy Crisis

The energy crisis that faces our planet must be dealt with in a timely and efficient manner or the solution may not even be to the greater benefit. It is absolutely essential that the current energy manufacturing and distribution system be replaced as it is broken and only ailing the constituents that need it. My plan includes a gradual transition from the current power grid to a new, digital power grid, drawing from the power and energy that already exists naturally in this world. The simulations have been run and the calculations have been made to develop a strong secondary system that will eliminate the issues that our current grid has and provide even more powerful and efficient energy.
Environment

It is clear that the biosphere is not holding up as well as its creators had imagined as it is quickly decaying in much the same manner as the natural atmosphere before it. Unlike others, I do not see a need to replace the biosphere as that is an extravagent and unnecessary cost when we can instead alter our way of life and thus prevent the need for its replacement whatsoever. Material development and manufacturing plays a massive role in the destruction of our enviornment. As previous campaigns against material manufacturing have proven, the elimination of these processes has vastly improved environmental conditions. I propose a move away from material manufacture and instead focus on digital production and virtual reality to replace the primarily human need for superficiality.


Bio/Genetic Engineering

Bioengineering is the next step in the technological spectrum of life. We have already instituted the ability to alter fetal genetics to produce healthy human children, but the ability to reproduce without the long and oftentimes problematic condition of pregnancy has yet to be introduced. Expecting mothers have, throughout history, been more susceptible to disease, more likely to induce illness in their children, and forced to take extended leaves from their jobs due to their pregnancy. Why not avoid these health and productivity issues entirely? The technology exists and, with the support of the people and the US Congress, women could soon avoid the pains of pregnancy and childbirth altogether and produce children in a safe, clean and natural way.


Immigration

Biodiversity is key to earth's survival and the constant influx of various lifeforms to the planet is not something to be feared. Throughout history, immigration has proven to be advantageous to the nation's economy and, though certainly changes the job market, is a productive change that allows for expanded opportunities for all parties involved. Data suggests that alien immigration is no different. The real issue of immigration comes from the rise in social class divisions. We must do all we can to counteract a suppressing social class system and keep all lifeforms on the same plane of dignity and respect in the workforce and otherwise.


Weapon Control

The existence of alien weapon technologies as well as earth weapon technologies is not the deadly combination that some believe it to be. A gun in the hands of a good man is a good thing. A gun in the hands of a bad man is a very bad thing. However, who are we to define 'good' and 'bad' and preemptively act upon those definitions. Instead of picking and choosing and being indecisive about weapons control, I propose a complete ban of street weaponry and putting all weapon technology of both worlds into the hands of the government and the government alone. To address the concerns of black market weapons trade, we must not allow the black market to persist. All ships arriving on earth will be put through customs before transferring any materials from the ship to earth. In this way, we will cut off their source entirely. Criminal activity will not be tolerated under my administration and, with the assistance of a web of algorithmic computation machines to pinpoint indecent activity, we will put a stop to irresponsible possession of weaponry.


Interspecies Marriage

There are no reasons why aliens and humans should not be able to commit to relationships with one another. There are no biological inconsistencies to make it dangerous. It is completely unsound to ban their marriage.

Illandra 6.032 - Mechanical Integration Party (MIP)

Current chair of the Cyborg Right Committee in the House, Illandra 6.032 has served the greater good of cyborg-human relations for over one hundred fifty years now. She was a key driving force in the Cyborg Marriage Act of 2298 which first allowed cyborgs to enter into legally binding unions with other cyborgs as well as humans. As a member of the MIP, she fully supports progression towards organic acceptance and acquisition of mechanisms to advance their systems and prolong their lives. This includes supporting the multiple research facilities leading the way towards full cybernetic development. Illandra strongly supports a move towards reevaluation and reinterpretation of the part technology plays on earth and would like to steer humanity away from their constant struggle to define what it is to be a human and rather accept all forms of sentience as life and treat it as such.


The Issues According to Illandra

Energy Crisis

Our current power system is dysfunctional and fails us all too often. It is all too necessary to take its shortcomings into consideration and attempt a redesign. However, it is also all too easy to claim change is necessary, but it is considerably more difficult to find a change that is appropriate. Some of my opponents have suggested plans of alternate technology to replace entirely what we already have. I feel like this is a step in the wrong direction. Though the grid is surely broken, we musn't take the hit of replacing it and instead we must build it up from what it already is. Transfer over to safer methods of power distribution and reconstruction of the internal generators is what we need to solve the crisis.
Environment

Again, many of my opponents believe that the biosphere systems need to be shut down entirely and reconstructed. I know, however, that this is fiscally irresponsible in this trying times and we must be considerably more careful with our resources. The biosphere does indeed need to be repaired, but not so drastically that it must be destroyed before it can get better. What it needs is the addition of a filtering system that can cleanse the air without destroying the infrastructure. The technology exists, we just need the drive to activate it.


Bio/Genetic Engineering

There is an inherent danger in altering the genetic make-up of organic lifeforms, this we know. The risks of taking something so delicate as organic DNA and poking around for our own desires are huge. Although engineering for health purposes and preventing disease is surely advantageous and likely worth the risk, taking it further is a mistake that will end poorly. The mechanism that is organism is technology beyond our understanding, but technology of our own creation can easily be used for the same effect. Biotech is already a thriving field, having been the foundation of cyborgs such as myself, but we should take it a step further and integrate biotech into the future generations to ensure that they are healthy, strong individuals that can carry our nation into the future without risk.


Immigration

As I think has been proven throughout history, immigration is not something to be feared. Our nation was born from immigration and across the centuries, immigrants have gone through the same early distrust before finally becoming part of the make-up of the country. However, the alien immigration has been massive and almost too much for our economy to handle and I propose, to counteract this, we must impose a limit on the number of orbiting ships at a time.


Weapon Control

Alien weaponry has been a blessing to our nation in many cases, but also a curse. The existence of this technology on the black market is a huge problem for the safety of our streets and this must be stopped. By making weaponry legal and simply imposing regulations, we can take control of the issue and not allow it to get out of our hands.


Interspecies Marriage

It took a long time for cyborgs to gain the essential marriage rights given to humanity and it is about time that aliens too are given that same right. As voting citizens of our nation, they too are a part of this country and should be allowed the same basic privelege as all earth-born. It will put an end to the illegitimate childbirths that have resulted regardless and give aliens the means to actually take on that responsibility fully and contribute to our society.

Kaleb Norton - Communal Equality Party (CEP)

As governor of the state of Massachusetts and a citizen of the US for over forty years, Kaleb is a strong candidate that has rallied great support from lifeforms of all creeds and backgrounds with his progressive views on global unity and communal understanding. Having been a heavy supporter of cyborg rights in his youth, Kaleb now seeks to gain rights for his own people. As an Arkon, human hybrid, Kaleb has experienced firsthand the discrimination against foreign lifeforms and now actively seeks to end it. Having already won alien marriage rights in his home state of Massachusetts, he would now like to bring the discrimination of the national ban to the eyes of federal policymakers while simultaneously backing bioengineering to allow his people to live as comfortably and happily as thier fully earth-born brethren. Kaleb believes that the main focus of the next administration, however, should be the environmental crisis. He believes that it's best for earth to come together as one force and face this challenge together. More importantly, we must form an alliance with our alien brethren and utilize all of our resources to live together and prosper.


Energy Crisis

The earth energy crisis can be easily dealt with by introducing an external power node. There are currently a total of 16 ships orbiting earth, 6 of which are permanently docked. These ships are equipped with highly advanced technology with which they could easily absorb the excess energy surges and utilize that brief power to power themselves. This would be a mutually beneficial relationship and bridge the gap between the ships and the planet that currently exists.


Environment

Our greatest option to solve the environmental crisis is almost a complete refresh of the system. What has happened to it is irreversable without leaking the toxins out of the biosphere and into the depths of space. However, this would of course be fatal to all organic lifeforms. I propose we transport all life to the colonies temporarily so that we can refresh the lower layer and release the toxins into the upper layer where it can't affect the oxygen any longer. After a brief period of oxygen reformation, life can be returned to earth with a brand new, clean biosphere.


Bio/Genetic Engineering

Imagine for a moment what it would be like to be completely unable to have children of your own. As part of the growing number of alien/human hybrids, I can say in all knowing that it is an unpleasant feeling. As infertile species rise, this becomes a frequent problem and bioengineering is the only hope for solution. Biodiversity is essential to earth's survival, but if so many races are unable to produce offspring naturally, this goal becomes implausible. Thus, bioengineering should be researched, allowed and encouraged to produce the next generation of earth-borns from all races.


Immigration

Naturally, coming from an immigrant family myself, I fully support the immigration of alien species to earth. We have valuable resources to offer earth and will gladly provide them. We will serve as ambassadors to earth from the outer edges of the universe and the democratic relations between us can only help both parties. Our people have skills to offer and can be incredible assets to the US society and economy. The relationship between earth and space is a vital one and we are here to provide the first step.


Weapon Control

Alien weaponry should not be feared. We have gone through many precautions to make sure that our technology is safe to be used for all races and species. However, there is undoubtedly an issue in distribution that must be addressed. I suggest a plan to eliminate non-governmental transfer of alien weaponry from the ships, not allowing them to fall into the hands of the average person who could use it unsafely. While we are happy to share our technology, as the effects are so vast, the restriction is necessary.


Interspecies Marriage

As an illegitimate child of a legally unmarried human alien couple, I feel strongly that it is unfair to disallow a right so basic as marriage from a happy, loving couple who wish only to raise a family in a traditional earth-born manner. In many cases, human alien couples have stronger if not equally strong relationships as human to human couples and it bears no sense to ban marriage between a couple who wishes to make a formal commitment to one another. Marriage is an issue that has come up throughout the ages of this country on many counts, most recently among cyborgs. While there was resistance in all cases, all cases also eventually pass into legality. It is now our turn.

Robbie Ivanov - Earth Preservation Party (EPP)

After 16 years of service in the US Senate for the state of Florida, Robbie Ivanov has decided to take his passion for his country and his planet to the next level. Robbie's main goal if elected is to start redefining the relationship between humanity and technology. He believes in the preservation of earth's rich and long cultural history that has become lost in the shadow of the technology that has quite literally taken over our lives. Earth needs to be resurrected and stand on its own once again in its former glory and not disappear into computers and LCD screens. Robbie's stance on lifeform liberties is to cut back on the extravagence of creation and instead take stock of the value of what life we already have naturally. We as a people need to take a stand against the destruction of our history and reestablish our rights as the earth-borns.


Energy Crisis

Despite what my opponents suggest, the current system, though clearly problematic, is not a hopeless system. It is merely in need of repair. I strongly believe that we as a people, with the greatest human minds among us, can reform the system without completely destroying it. With the simple additions of alternate energy nodes for storage and rerouting, the grid can be gradually restored to equilibrium without wasting any time or finances in taking it down and recreating it.


Environment

Our biosphere is the very thing that has sustained us since the natural atmosphere burned away and it is no time to abandon it. The structure itself is sound. It is only us that are the problem. We must not, as some suggest, look away from manufacturing which is a source of much of the pollution, but rather look towards more environmentally friendly methods of doing so. Though we have come a long way in alternative energy sources, we still have a long way to go and I believe that we can make that journey without need for drastic technological overtake.


Bio/Genetic Engineering

Genetic engineering to prevent disease and promote health has only had a positive effect on humanity, but beyond this simple usage, we head into morally unstable ground. We are not gods and we should not be creating life. Organic lifeforms are built to naturally reproduce and to create a go-around for this miracle of life is not only dangerous, but irresponsible. Bioengineering must be ceased entirely and further genetic manipulation should be stopped.


Immigration

Thanks to our medical technology improving, overpopulation has already been an issue in the US. The addition of hundreds of alien lifeforms per day creates an even further problem. There is not enough space nor enough jobs to sustain these kind of numbers. Immigration should be restricted and contained as if it is not, soon the coutnry will be overrun by aliens, leaving no room for those who were naturally born here.


Weapon Control

Alien weaponry is dangerous, as we all know. Not only do we not fully understand its functionality, but furthermore the effects of misuse can be vast. Weapons exist that can destroy entire cities at a time. The ships themselves in a blink of an eye can destroy our entire planet. Alien weapons must be restricted and kept in strong check. All weapons that make it to earth's orbit should be handed over to the US government before they can wreak havoc upon our streets and kill our children.


Interspecies Marriage

Marriage is something that has historically been between two human beings or, more recently, cyborgs who are primarily human regardless. As a sacred earth tradition, marriage should not be open to anyone who simply decides to partake in it. It is something that has been and should continue to be restricted. Additionally, the extension of marriage rights to aliens also encourages further immigration and overpopulation by the alien race and promotes alien human reproduction which is fully unnatural, shown by the hybrids' inability to reproduce themselves.
