Asian American guerilla soldiers of the Pacific States Army, pictured here hiding in the mountains of Oregon, late February to early March 1942. Sporadic guerilla warfare continued well into the 1940s, courtesy of remnant forces of the armies of the PSA, AUS and the Syndicates, who continued their resistance against the triumphant reformed Federal Government led by General MacArthur. Their numbers are disputed, but estimates by the United States Army states that as many as 10,000 fighters were active.
They operated in bands of at least 20 soldiers each, with their bases usually in the wilderness or in mountainous areas. These guerillas usually conduct raids against US Army security forces and even the civilian population at times, especially civilian centers that backed the Federal Government during the Second American Civil War, aiming at capturing supplies such as food and water, and also accessing firearms and ammunition. Pacific States resistance groups were the most common, as the former territories of the rebel government still highly despises the Presidency in Washington DC. The last resistance fighters would not surrender until 1946, 7 years after the conflict.

Chaplain ZeBarney Thorne Philips delivering the opening prayer to the United States Senate, March 1942. The American Unionist/MacArthurite senators are seated on the left side of the chamber, with the New Federalist senators seated on the right side. As a multi party "democracy", a few senators from other parties are present here.
Under the provisions of the 22nd Amendment, the United States of America dissolved the century old 2 party system, which to the eyes of the military government, was plaguing the country and was a major reason for the catastrophic civil war. The new multi party system allowed third parties to run in the elections with the same benefits and rights that are held by the 2 new dominant parties: the American Unionist Party and the New Federalist Party. These 2 organizations were the political manifestation of the divide within the Federal Government, with the AUP backing MacArthur and his Loyalists, and the NFP supporting the likes of Omar Bradley and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Many argue that the amendment just replaced the old 2 party system with a new one, as both parties were the dominant groups for the majority of the MacArthur Era. The largest third party was the Progressive Party, which itself has barely enough support to actually get people into the Congress and grab substantial votes in presidential elections.
"The division between the Unionists and the Federalists practically marks the beginning of a new Democrat - Republican era."

Soldiers of the First United States Army, Omar Bradley's personal armed force, pictured in a military parade in Denver, March 1942. Similar parades occured around the country as means of political power projection. This tactic was done constantly by the AUP and NFP.
America in the 1940s had also become like the infamous warlords of China when it comes to the personal protection of several key figures. Since the government in Washington was made out of Army generals and staff members, some have the benefit of having sections of the armed forces rally to them for their protection, protection of the person and their interests. In short, the new politicians in the Capitol and in the White House had personal armies that they can use to their free will. Notable of these is Omar Bradley (First US Army), Lesley McNair (20th US Army) and even MacArthur himself (8th US Army). Figures like them utilized these armed formations for aforementioned scare tactics against anyone who backed the enemy of the other. These units are united only by the Joint Chiefs, who overall commands them as the governing body of the United States Armed Forces.
