Men, Women and Governor with deepest pride I’m here to tell you we need to federate. Governor I your power but our economy is falling terribly. I have seen the poor people trying to get good pay in other colonies from selling goods. But it cost so much. Then people try to get around it by smuggling. People with special overshirts and odd shaped pocket and waistcoats. And at the colony borders you have to show and it wastes so much time. With federation the colonies will join to create easy and a safer land with no trading fees no smuggling and no wasting time at the borders and the colony leaders will still have power so that is why I believe that we should become a federation.
