    Governor Harris notes that you’d need support from Congress and from State Governments. It simply won’t happen, he states in a short reesponse to the election.

    Brooke: "This victory shows that there is popular support for abolition which will be happening under my term, regardless of Southern threats of Secession."

    My planned scenarios

    True but all Manhattan neighborhoods voted Clinton and it'd be pretty boring. Queens is more competitive.
  5. Patine

    My planned scenarios

    But wasn't he RESIDENT in Manhattan at the time of the election? I mean both George Bush's were born in Connecticut, but they were both registered as coming from, and usually viewed in public perception as being strongly associated with, Midland County, Texas.

    He was born in Jamaica,Queens

    The New York State Senate might be interesting if a lot of those colourful and varied Third Parties New York is known for are running.

    An interesting thought but national PR would be needed for that. I might be willing to make such an app to allow for it though. ANyway what do you think about the rest of my suggestions?

    My planned scenarios

    There was an idea back some years ago here to use the P4E2008 (the most current Presidential game at the time) primaries system for an Israeli election. That is, to have an "Israeli Knesset Party" with each actual party being a candidate, and then a "blank" or "dummy party" to be ignored, so the game doesn't crash, and then the Convention stands in for the "election," and you just don't proceed into the GE. The guy trying this stopped posting before he finished his experiment though. It's a thought I had just remembered here.

    1860 Election This party pits five parties against one another in a time when the issue of Slavery is at a boiling point. People are deeply partisan on the issue. Pres. Morris opted not to run for reelection after a lengthy time in office. While he will be remembered for expanding the borders of the country and for winning a war, his terms will be known for both internal and external bloodshed. Morris fatigue has also caused fatigue for the two parties that Morris had served under--American Progress and the Federalists. This gives new found hope to the Republicans, and to the two newer parties that are rapidly on the rise, Liberty and States Rights, which are the only two parties taking a decisive stand one way or the other on slavery. American Progress Convention Morris endorses Wesley, who is easily nominated. Sarian is the VP nominee. Wesley runs on his record, which is one that is of the old fashioned Pres. Henry-variety. Federalist Convention Federalists run three candidates. Maverick runs on a decisive abolitionist platform. Woodbury takes no platform. Harris takes a platform, but makes no real statement on slavery. Maverick wins on the third ballot, mostly because Woodbury and Harris cancel each other out. Houghes will be the VP nominee. Republican Convention Republicans run two candidates, one for secession and one opposed. Leech, who supports secession, is defeated in the first round by Gloucester, who opposes secession. Leech had one Southern delegates, but could not gain any from the North or Midwest. Three border states went for Gloucester. The VP nominee is Prince. Liberty Convention Brooke is the nominee for this party, which runs on an abolitionist platform. Rep. Philemon Gutch of ME is his VP nominee. States Rights Convention Williams is the nominee for this party, which runs on a pro-slavery and pro-secession platform. Judge Donald Crump of TN is the VP nominee General Election First Round Brooke/Gutch (Lib) 130 EV 25% PV [New England + PA, OH, NY, FL] Williams/Crump (SR) 46 EV 15% PV [GA, SC, MS, AL, TN] Maverick/Houghes (Fed ) 43 15% PV [IN, IL, MI, WI, IA] Gloucester/Prince (Rep) 36 20% PV [NC, VA, MD, DE] Wesley/Sarian (Pro) 35 25% PV [MO, AR, KY, NJ, OR] [Progress Party and Federalists were on the most ballots, but they had very low enthusiasm. Republicans over-performed, as they weren't expected to carry a single state. As expected, with slavery and secession as the central issues, the electoral is extremely partisan. As such the partisan parties prevail, with the Liberty party at a huge advantage as it comes from the populous North.] General Election Second Round Brooke/Gutch (Lib) 190 EVs 65% PV [Keeps all their 1st round votes + all Fed votes + NJ + OR] Williams/Crump (SR) 117 EVs 35% PV [Keeps all their 1st round votes + all Rep votes + MO + AR + KY] Brooke @WVProgressive is president and Gutch is VP!! ( @Rodja I'll assign Gutch to you, if something happens to Brooke). With an abolitionist president, states are likely to seceded. We await Brooke's victory speech as well as Williams's @Reagan04 response.

    The only issue is it uses a PR system and is basically meaningless without negotiations so I'd have to make a seperate app for that.
  18. Patine

    My planned scenarios

    I think I'd touched upon this when a couple of posters and a poll about poster's views on the issue previously that had the idea, but, while an elected UN General Assembly may fly, I don't think a World President is a realistic idea in our world today. I mean, realistically - name one, just, leader in the world today you think you could command, even if not a majority, but even a convincing, stable mandate of support globally. JUST ONE. I'm not trying to be mean - I just believe global socio-political logistics are STRONGLY against the idea of a singular leader. Look at how much trouble leaders of many individual countries (like American Presidents, Indian Prime Ministers, quite a few European leaders, Israeli Prime Ministers, Canadian Prime Ministers, etc., have as it is keeping a unified mandate of support in their own single countries. Try extrapolating this to global level). This is why I opted for an elected Assembly, and one without any type of parliamentary responsible government. That's my personal advice there. As for Israel - I'd be much more interested in the Knesset elections, as the direct Prime Ministers proved to be a failed idea when the winner of the second such election (2001?) couldn't hold a workable coalition, and the direct elections were abolished.

    In order from soonest to be done to later with reasons NY-14 2018 - This is a very interesting battle between the establishment and Bernie wing NY-11 2018 - There's a very interesting Republican primary here and it's a top target seat for the democrats NY-6 2016 maybe the barely contested 2018 - This is my home district that's why NY State Senate 2018 - After the reuniting of the IDC with the mainstream will the democrats retake the State Senate? US House of representatives NY 2018 - The democrats are going all out this year how will the Republicans do? Make some slight changes to Israel 1996 and reupload - had a bunch of irrelevant issues in that election there. World presidential election(awaiting two-round) - too be based off of @Patine's Congressional scenario

    I doubt there is enough interest to continue this; it was a nice idea, but seemed to get repetitive very quickly.

    Funny enough my great grandfather worked for Hoover for decades and retired a few months before Hoover's death.

    I do want to admit I took a lot of inspiration for Hoover's fall from House of Cards and how the Washington Harold made a case against Underwood, but if you watch the show mine goes farther. Just wanted to give credit.

    President Richard Nixon first term events 1958-1960 October 26th, 1958 - The Senate votes (95-0) to charge the President and to remove him from office. October 27th, 1958 - Nixon is sworn in as President. November 4th, 1958 - Republicans lose big in the House and the Senate in huge part to former President Hoover. (Rep Reps 155 Rep Sens 34). December 4th, 1958 - Nixon dismisses his entire cabinet to “rid the White House of corruption”. January 3rd, 1959 - Alaska becomes the 49th state. January 14th, 1959 - Former President Hoover is sentenced to life in prison. January 22nd, 1959 - President Nixon announces he will continue Hoover’s plan to keep sending troops to South Vietnam. March 20th, 1959 - Nixon signs over 20 different executive order dismantling the Long Act of 1946. August 21st, 1959 - Hawaii is admitted as the 50th state. December 3rd, 1959 - Poll finds Americans are starting to trust the government again (48%). January 2nd, 1960 - Fmr. President Eisenhower announces he will run for the Republican nomination. January 7th, 1960 - Pres. Nixon announces he will run for the Republican nomination. January 12th, 1960 - 20,000 more troops are sent to South Vietnam, making the count now over 200,000. June 16th, 1960 - 22nd Amendment is submitted for ratification; allowing D.C. to vote in the Presidential elections. Analysis: President Nixon was largely quiet and a low key President trying not to ruffle feathers. He was trying to separate his presidency from Hoover’s, so he becomes the first President to clear his cabinet. He also doesn’t nominate a VP, some think it’s because he didn’t want there to be a quick replacement should the Democrats decide to try to link him with Hoover’s wrongdoing. His term was overall successful in making the American people start to trust the government again, and the economy and happiness looks good. He is revving up the Vietnam war and hoping to try to overcome the strength of the communists, a plan Hoover started. He hasn’t done anything land marked, yet but he does still have 6 months.
