These are the ideas we will promote in all of the states/MPOs we are a part of. However, we accept members of all political beliefs in this party. A manifesto for the CUP explaining our beliefs and mission in detail will be written in Google Drive in the near future. However, Purrcat2010 is currently slow to get it done. Do note that contrary to what it was called in the RoE (Cattington Unionist), the CUP is not unionist. The name Cattington Unionist came from a miscommunication that was recently corrected.

-We will ensure that the rights of freedom of religion, speech, media, among others are protected.

-Pursuant to the previous one, we are trying to prevent discrimination in any way in the organizations we are in.

-We think that all MRT political parties (including Independents) have equal right to exist and to ally ourselves with parties with similar beliefs to ours. Likewise, we think people should use constructive criticism in political discussions instead of verbal attacks, as those can be hurtful, intentionally or unintentionally.

-We are for the establishment, yet we feel that in order for the establishment to continue, reforms must be made that will benefit all.

-We believe that the common saying “fair isn’t equal, equal isn’t fair” isn’t accurate. Fairness and Equality are complementary and can’t exist without each other.

-We believe in a common principle of democracy that is “majority rules, minority rights”, which basically means the vote of the majority has the power, yet the same rights are given to minorities as well as the majority.

-We feel that Discord should not be forced on anyone, for any reason, even if the reasons seem good and accommodations should be made for those who can’t or choose not to use Discord.

-We feel that people should be able to freely change their MRT political views without penalty.

-Lastly, we feel that people should be able to freely leave/form new states/MPOs from their current MPO/State without hindrance and/or penalty.

Defining Political Moments

The Cattington Unity Party has it’s defining political moments described below.

Joining the RoE

On January 13, 2020, the Socialist Kingdom of Cattington formally announced joining the Epsilonian Republic as the Autonomous Kingdom of Cattington with the CUP as it’s political affiliation. In the Epsilonian Republic, the party was under the name Cattington Unionist, which originated from a miscommunication with ModernArt, the President of the RoE at the time Purrcat2010 joined and was recently fixed, and has eight seats in the Parliament of the RoE.

Joining the RoE’s Freedom Coalition

Near the end of January, the Cattington Unity Party joined the Freedom Coalition after a voting session by said coalition members. On the Llama Libertarian Party talk page, Purrcat2010 expressed his gratitude for his request to join being approved. However, in the past month or so, Purrcat2010 discovered that for reasons unknown to him currently, the Cattington Unity Party was no longer in the Freedom Coalition on the Epsilonian Republic wiki page.

The RoE Presidential Campaign of Purrcat2010

Near the beginning of February, Cattington Unity Party leader Purrcat2010 formally announced his intentions to run for RoE Presidency for the April 2020 Election. Purrcat2010 will ensure Discord won’t be forced at any time and help accommodate those who choose not to use Discord or can’t access it for whatever reason, and bring CUP values to the top of the RoE (see the Beliefs section of this page for a full list of all Purrcat2010 is campaigning for). However, this doesn’t matter anymore because Purrcat2010 lost the election (came in last with only two votes for him) despite his best efforts. As of now, Purrcat2010 hasn’t announced if he will run for RoE President again.

Possible Merger With Progressive Party

While Purrcat2010 was campaigning for RoE President, ModernArt brought up the issue of merging their respective parties. Purrcat2010 said he will consider it depending on how he did in the election. This means a merger is likely. However, ModernArt’s past negative actions in and out of the RoE may impact Purrcat2010’s final decision regarding this matter (I do not mean to upset Modern in any way, nor do I have anything against Modern). More recently, Purrcat2010 tried contacting the new leader of the Progressive Party, Canadian_K9 (now has a new username). However, due to said person not responding, Purrcat2010 has called off the merger deal with the Progressive Party.
