The Democratic Action League (DAL) is a prominent political party in Canada. It was founded by Dominik (first as the Royal Feudalist Party, later undergoing a name change) as a response to increasingly reactionary politics in the country. Under Dominik, the party managed to briefly enter the top 5, but was pushed away by the reemerging Canadian Paradox Party. After Dominik's resignation, (after a lost election and to distance the party from his controversial persona) , vice-president David Eastcorner took over, where the party stagnated. After Scorpius took over, a massive influx of players was achieved (with Citizen B at the forefront of the recruitment campaign) and the DAL began to take a leading role in Canadian politics.


History

The Democratic Action League was formed on March 15, 2009. It had previously been known as the Royal Feudalist Party, however, the party decided to become more serious, and changed its name to its current form, which is still maintains to this day.

After Dominik stepped down, David Eastcorner won as the only candidate, followed by Scorpius in a similar situation. In June 2009, however, two allies who joined the party within days of each other, Koolmanjack and Derek Harland, both fought hard for the party presidency, with a surprise last-minute candidate from the Canadian Empire Party, Emilio Sanchez. Koolmanjack won, though Emilio received a large number of votes due to a CEP attempt at a political takeover that he was not aware of.

At this same time, Citizen B joined the DAL and subsequently convinced hundreds of new members to join. The DAL quickly grew to be the third largest party in Canada, behind the Canadian Social Democrats and the Canadian Empire Party. The party is considered instrumental in getting former Prime Minister, Jacobi, elected, despite the fact the the party officially supported Andrew Mendelson. In July, Citizen B easily defeated his opponents who had never made any official or unofficial presentation, and the DAL shot up to four hundred members, easily becoming first in Canada.

After the French occupation of Canada the party was renamed Ligue de l'Action Democratique. Many of its members from Canada were elected into congress. In late August, after Alberta had been retaken by Canada, Scorpius, elected Party President by forum vote, recreated the DAL in Canada. Although they had less than a week to prepare for the congress elections, the DAL gained fourteen seats of the forty-seven, making it second in Canada.

Soon after a month-long occupation by jbdivinus, the DAL entered a period of stagnation under WolfGang III when WolfGang unexpectedly quit the party due to the internal dispute between Acacia Mason and Citizen B. An interim presidency was established until Dominik, returning after nearly a year, won the presidency in the first forum-based election.

Upon becoming party president, Janos Leinport organised a controversial and unauthorised forum. The goal of this move was to reorganize the party away from Dominik and Scorpius, who Leinport deemed to be too dictatorial. Janos Leinport and a few others seized the party's leadership and de facto ousted Dominik, Scorpius and their supporters many of whom decided to run for congress with either the Canadian Paradox Party or the Military Dictatorship Party. After Janos and his team gained 5 seats, he rationally changed the party name to "Scorpius Killed the DAL". Later on, Leinport was found guilty of using 5000CAD worth of Charity Funds to bribe members to leave the party. After his actions, Janos Leinport was impeached on March 30th, 2011.
