how to control a nation

My Pinky!

Requested by anarchy-is-key : Can I request one with Boomerang, where he finds you asleep with his unicorn and thinks it’s the cutest thing ever?

Warnings: None really, just fluffy boomer 👌🏼


6 o’clock… quitting time, you normally enjoyed your job, it was something you were good at, you liked walking in everyday to a new challenge to overcome. Today was different though.

It was one of those days, those days in which no matter how hard you tried, or how calm and understanding you tried to remain, everything just went to shit.

eeeyy so i read your post about sp and lok crossover and it's interesting! i wanna know their role and what bending they have. and who's the avatar, butters? P.S. why you played on my style feelings-- ;A; keep up with the comic tho!

Heeeyyy! I’m super happy that you find it interesting! ive been playing around with the idea and i really want to make it into little comics some day!

I’ll start with Stan!

He’s an airbender, and will probably be able to perform spiritual projection (i’m not sure how he’ll figure it out, if at all). He’ll kinda suck at fighting at first. I’ve changed the fact that he only has his dad to that he only his sister and mom, who owns a tea house. Randy had elsewhere to be.

Kyle is a firebender (I don’t see him using electricity at this time). I guess he has blue fire? It’s not a thing he can control very well, much like how he controls his temper. Kyle is Fire Nation nobility who, for some reason, is hiding in a certain city in Earth Kingdom. Who knows what he did.

For someone so manipulative and proficient at bending other people’s minds, Cartman can’t seem to bend anything else but plain old earth. Maybe he’ll find his calling one day. Cartman lives with Liane, who has a really good business of selling flowers and other plants. He and Kenny often work together on their ventures for unscrupulously obtained money.

Kenny left the Foggy Swamp with nothing but the clothes on his back. He met the boys in his travels and hasn’t left the city since. He lives day-to-day, and usually only has enough money to last for just a while. He does weird, freaky things for money sometimes.

And finally, the Avatar!

Butters used his first second element when his burp turned into a major air blast. His parents were proud of their son, but not before grounding him for not covering his burp at the dinner table and destroying said table. Butters is no doubt very powerful, but it’s kinda difficult for most people to accept that. You can’t really blame them—I mean, just look at him. (there’s only two drawings of him because i’m kinda just mugging up his design for now)

i cant decide how i want to draw them so the style varies a bit. nothing here is final but it’s been real fun putting this together! sorry for the wait and thank you for the ask!

In the 1790s, Federalist policy for the West also had to fit within the framework of Alexander Hamilton’s economic program. When Hamilton looked upon the United States, he saw the early stages of an emerging colossus, “the embryo of a great empire,” he said in July 1795. But the place of westward expansion in his vision remained limited and somewhat ambiguous. When late-eighteenth century Americans used the word “empire,” they usually referred not to the conquest and subjugation of other peoples, notwithstanding the Indians’ fate, but rather sovereignty over an area of territory…. Still, Hamilton did not much imagine the building of an empire across space. Westward expansion, he thought, should occur quite slowly, in measured steps, and never at the expense of commercial and budding manufacturing interests. His “great empire” would be financial, not spatial, capital being the prized factor of production, not land. His unsettled West mattered less for agricultural purposes than as a massive collateral to establish the credit of the nation. He valued most the artisans and manufactures on whose shoulders American investors might, in a not-too-distant future, construct an industrial giant.

Well aware of Montesquieu’s caution (and the Romans’ experience) that a republic could not sustain itself across extensive space, Hamilton considered the size of the United States - particularly the area of its unsettled western territory - as a potential danger to political unity. In this, he echoed Washington’s concerns. Hamilton had written in The Federalist, No. 23 that “the extent of the country, is the strongest argument in favor of an energetic government; for any other can certainly never preserve the Union of so large an empire.” It would take strong central power - a military-fiscal state - to prevent squatters from overrunning the frontier.

But by 1790, Hamilton would doubt the ability of any government, no matter how powerful or energetic, to control a nation so vast. As treasury secretary he worked to delay the development of the West. He designed the plan for the federal assumption of state debts in part to prevent a depopulation of the old states. Without assumption, heavy tax burdens would drive inhabitants out of the East. The alternatives, he explained, would not only weaken eastern states but “retard the progress in general improvement and…impair for a greater length of time the vigor of the Nation by scattering too widely and too sparsely the elements of resource and strength.” Hamilton later viewed the Louisiana Purchase in the same light. Should “our own citizens, more enterprising than wise, become desirous of settling this country, and emigrate thither,” he wrote in 1803, “it must not only be attended with all the injuries of a too widely dispersed population, but by adding to the great weight of the western part of our territory, must hasten the dismemberment of a large portion of our country, or a dissolution of the Government.”
