My case was best put into words by Truman himself: My evangelism of the works of April Daniels has established the Nemesis trilogy (of which only two entries have been released, the aforementioned Dreadnought and Sovereign) as "great works of Western literature", and I think Frémont should treat them as such. I co-wrote this bill with Falterin, and I'm sure he would agree with me if I wasn't so impatient that I felt the need to both propose and advocate for the bill on his behalf.

And also, a sh**tpost:

Frémont needs to do more to recognize artists of our region and this is a good start. Dreadnought self-evidently deserves recognition from our region and I couldn’t think of a better way to do so than to create a day honoring it. We should pass this bill as soon as possible so preparations for January 24th can be out in order in a reasonable time.

From what I understand, Dreadnought features a young Frémonter trans protagonist who saves the world from the (presumably Eastern) evildoers. It is an important patriotic text and an allegory for our current political situation. Every Frémonter should read it and pass it on to their children to read. As such, I will support this bill.

Spoiler alert: Kind of a spoiler for Sovereign but also not really, but if Falterin doesn't want to be spoiled, here it is

One more thing:

AN ACT

Be it enacted by the Parliament of the Commonwealth of Frémont assembled,

Section 1. Title

Section 2. Establishment of Federal Regional Holiday

1. In honor of the 5th anniversary of its initial printing, Monday, the twenty-fourth of January, two thousand and twenty-two, is hereby designated "Dreadnought Day", to be celebrated across Frémont.
2. Dreadnought Day is established as a full regional holiday for the Commonwealth of Frémont, and will continued to be celebrated as such annually on the twenty-fourth of January.
3. Annual festivities to honor Dreadnought will take place in Denver and Seattle.
4. The works Dreadnought and Sovereign are to be preserved by the regional government for safekeeping and to pass on to future generations.
5. April Daniels is recognized as a significant cultural contributor to the region.
I just noticed it was called a federal holiday when it's a regional holiday. Sorry for backseat legislating, but I just thought that should've been fixed.
