Morgan had a long career in law and politics prior to his ascension into the presidency of the United States in 2013. Patriarch of the Morgan political family, Morgan was present in the civil rights movement of the 1960s, and a prominent member of the anti-war efforts of the late-1960s against Vietnam. He was, however, for the invasion of Iraq in 1991, and supported the bombing of Serbia in 1999. His political campaigns have often been marked by his hawkish "America-first" stance in international relations, as well as his rightist leanings back home. He was selected as Daniel Walker's running mate in 2012 as a compromise with the Republicans, who threatened to expose Obama's secret NSA operations, which later came to a head in mid-2012.
Today, Morgan is noted for his aggressiveness as a politician, while pushing for conservative causes in the government. Morgan has made the fixing of "Walkercare" and the rehabilitation of American jobs a priority, as well as dealing with immigration and poverty, which have long been issues in American society. Gun control, however, has been one of Morgan's most controversial problems, as he struggles to gain support from the NRA and the largely-Republican gun owner caucus he has long opposed. Morgan is often criticized for his anti-gay marriage and anti-abortion stances in politics, and has lobbied strongly for the overturning of Roe v. Wade and the re-institution of the Defense of Marriage Act.
