  3. Conservative Elector 2

    New Historical President RP

    Name and office: Former Governor Henry B. Gloucester Resident state: Exiled North Carolina, living in West Virginia Party: Democratic Your plan for Reconstruction of the South? In order to get peace we will end the war as soon as possible. The South is already destroyed so they will be glad.We will not spill more American blood on our soil.Return home to your families, farms and wifes and work for our country. This war was unnecessary. Specifically, how will you protect freed blacks (if you do)? We declare that harming black people is as much as a crime, as harming others. If people do not want to be executed as murderers they will have to obey this rules. There is zero tolerance. This also belongs to black people killing Whites. Justice will be brought to this country again by a Gloucester administration and the years of injustice will finally end. How do you punish Confederates (if you do)? The leading personal will have to return to private life, if they speak in favor of destroying our country by seceding again they will go to prison. The same applies for Northern secessionists, if there are some left. Soldiers will not get any punishment because they had to fight in a war that was waged by others on them. Union soldiers did the same and do not intend to punish them either. How do you reintegrate the states? By banning all propaganda on seceding and suppressing the values which made America leading. Our society needs to revive again. Punishment is not the right way because both sides made huge mistakes. The South lost it's economy and so we will attempt to settle Germans and Irish immigrants primarily in the South. Who will administer the states during Reconstruction? People who stayed loyal to the Union. Preferable Southern Unionists. Create also an elected Secretary for the South. What are the rules that the states must follow to be fully rejoined? Having a state congress loyal to the union, passing an allegiance to our values and getting the leading of the states at least to swear the oath. What do they have to do to have Reconstruction pro-longed? Do Southerners keep their citizenship? They have to re-gain it, but I do not attempt to create a two class society. How do you integrate former slaves with former slave owners? Etc. Allow slaves to settle in the whole country, preferably in the West. Both sides are guarded by our laws, if they do not obey them we will use justice on them. America is a tolerant society and we need every hand to work to get our country fixed again. Clear up the mess we are in. The constitution shall remain and I aim to restore the Union as it was. A great nation built up by men who loved our country, the last generation destroyed it but it is not too late. Thank you, God bless you and God bless America. We are one!

    Aug. 1st, 1960 Well the vice presidents are now chosen. Sen. Johnson has chosen Gov. Pat Brown of California while Pres. Nixon has chosen Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York. Isn’t it kinda crazy that the two choices for VP are from the two biggest states? With 102 days left Johnson leads Nixon by 12 points. Can Nixon recover the lost ground and can Johnson keep his lead? We’ll find out over the course of the next few months.

    July 11th, 1960 Special Report! It’s official Sen. Johnson will be the one to face off against President Nixon come November. Will he be able to win? We’ll see and we should find out who Johnson chooses as his VP within this next week.

    June 11th, 1960 It seems that Sen. Johnson has been able to turn his bad luck around. He won California, pretty handedly, and has retaken the lead in New York. If he can win New York come convention it is unlikely that Sen. Kennedy can overtake him. Pres. Nixon has so far won every state that has held their primaries. Former Pres. Eisenhower has fallen flat on his campaign promise of winning the nomination. Onto the general polls the Democrats are still ahead by 8 points and their lead has stayed steady. The Republicans it seems will be heading for defeat come November.

    May 4th, 1960 Welcome back to PI Radio! Today Ohio and Indiana both voted in their primaries and together they rebuked Sen. Johnson and chose Sen. Kennedy. Sen. Johnson has been on a bad losing streak lately stuck in his polling numbers and has had trouble trying to heighten them. Sen. Kennedy on the other hand has been working tirelessly to show Sen. Johnson that he will not stand down and will give him a hard fight.

    Apr. 26th, 1960 Welcome back! It seems Pres. Nixon refuses to allow former Pres. Eisenhower to even win one state. Sen. Kennedy has beaten Sen. Johnson again, but this time in Illinois. He is also expected to win Massachusetts and Pennsylvania in the coming days, but Ohio seems where both candidates are focusing next. Who will win?

    Apr. 5th, 1960 Welcome back today was the Wisconsin primary and Sen. Johnson apparently could not keep up to Sen. Kennedy. Kennedy won by over 10 points striking a blow to the frontrunner. Gov. Stevenson dropped out a couple of days ago along with DiSalle making this between the two frontrunners. Kennedy has rebounded in a few states such as New York, Pennsylvania, and Maine but he is still thousands of delegates down. Pres Nixon has won Wisconsin seemingly taking any last ditch effort Eisenhower had to steal thunder from Nixon. The Republican and Democratic primaries are looking the same with the frontrunners both at 50 something point with the other candidate at 30 something points. Can the frontrunners maintain their lead? We shall see.

    Mar. 22nd, 1960 Welcome back to our March update report. It seems Sen. Johnson’s lead has grown from the candidates dropping out. Since last week Sen. McCarthy and Gov. Rockefeller have both dropped out. Rockefeller's departure makes this a true two way race between the Presidents that Nixon is handedly winning. Can former Pres. Eisenhower come back to win? Can Sen. Johnson continue to hold his lead and can Sen. Kennedy win Wisconsin and stop Johnson’s momentum?

    Mar. 13th, 1960 Special report! It seems Sen. Johnson will likely become Pres. Johnson as Symington, Humphry, Long, Brown, Smathers, Morse, and Kefauver has all dropped out in the last 4 days. This makes the race a 2 man race with the odds heavily in the favour for Sen. Johnson. Sen. Underwood has dropped out on the Republican side, but it is unlikely to cause mch upset. Have a wonderful rest of your day!

    Mar. 9th, 1960 Welcome back to PI Radio! Today New Hampshire voted and we got some results that cemented our frontrunners. Pres. Nixon won a close contested primary beating Rockefeller by just a couple of points. On the Democratic side Sen. Johnson has won 20 points ahead of Sen. Kennedy at 36 points. Sen. Johnson’s lead has grown this last month from 3 points to 13, he now leads in almost every state, but Wisconsin, Ohio, and Massachusetts. Onto the general polling it seems whoever wins the Democratic nomination will be heavily favoured in November. The Democrats currently lead 52 to 41 points and is projected to win almost 450 electoral votes if the election was held today. With 244 days left who will come out on top?

    Jan 4th, 1960 Hello and welcome back to PI Radio! New polls were released today and they showed some very interesting tidbits. President Nixon is facing some serious challenge from former President Eisenhower. Nixon leads in projected delegates and in the polling, but Eisenhower is not far behind. Rockefeller is in third place but doesn’t have a long way to catch up to the two Presidents. Onto the Democratic primaries Sen. Kennedy leads the pact with Sen. Johnson not far behind. They two make up almost 40 percent. In third place at 9 points is the former nominee Stevenson. This is by far one of the largest fields we’ve seen in decades. 12 candidates are vying for the Democratic nomination. Likely because of the perceived weak incumbent status of Pres. Nixon. Onto general polling and initially its bad. The Republicans are behind 5 points with the Democrats leading in most of the South and the Plains regions. The Republicans are polling better in the South, but at the moment seems unlikely to flip any states. With 309 days to go who will win the nominations and become the President for the next 4 years?

    Wow I actually had no clue you could research state-level scandals. Going to try that out, thanks. Mitigates the need to go from 1 week turns to 1 day turns in the primary to release the scandals and keep them relevant.
  16. @vcczar I think there is an error in the 2016 HSC campaign - if you get Kerry's endorsement, you get 1.0 ground ops in every state, when other major endorsers are 0.1 or 0.3, including people like Obama and Biden.

    New Historical President RP

    Name and office: Senator Mark Hardy Resident state: Iowa Party: Federalist Your plan for Reconstruction of the South? Specifically, how will you protect freed blacks (if you do)? To protect freed blacks, we propose a federal stipend to guarantee them a salary. They will have non-mandatory in person surveys about job training. Federal troops will supervise the South for upwards of 7 years if necessary. To pay for this, taxes will be moderately raised and tariffs lowered slightly. He also proposes more immigrants to go to the South to work. How do you punish Confederates (if you do)? A federal mass pardon of every day citizens and the lower ranking soldiers will be granted. The government will try those at the upper echelons of the Confederate government as traitors. We will not pursue a death penalty but rather 20 years in prison and also a guarantee and ban of never running for office again. How do you reintegrate the states? Federal troops and northern militias for 7 years. Administrators will be appointed by the Congress. Who will administer the states during Reconstruction? Federal Administrators appointed by Congress through a simple majority in the Senate. They have jurisdiction over Military Governors. What are the rules that the states must follow to be fully rejoined? 1. African Americans will be given rights and must be allowed to hold jobs 2. Plantation Owners must consent to federal supervision for 5 years. 3. The Federal Government May prosecute those who do not agree with the guidelines 4. States must allow the US govt to appoint Administrators as long as Congress appears needed to go to a vote every 4 years. 5. Senators and Reps will be required to consent and agree to not support secession for 20 years. What do they have to do to have Reconstruction pro-longed? Reconstruction will be in depth for 6 years of mass construction of railroads and other necessary materials. Southern governors from then may request materials from the government on a yearly basis. Do Southerners keep their citizenship? Yes, they will be granted citizenship within 4 years as Congress settles. How do you integrate former slaves with former slave owners? Etc.  Fotmer slaves will be allowed to go wherever they need using the federal stipend. Slave owners will be under surveillance by the government and could be imprisoned for racist infractions.

    2020 Candidate Outlook

    I will literally double down and say that if Kasich, Biden, or Sanders run I will down an entire bottle of Tabasco sauce and post it in a thread. I will also do it if Cory Booker or Gillibrand DO NOT run. I am confident those two will run 100%. In fact, if Trump has any Republican challenger (who is a major name in the GOP, at least a notable Representative or any Senator or Governor) I will do it.

    Fearing a loss of Party support after the war, Wesley runs a campaign mainly to show the party is still fighting for relevance Name and office: Senator John Wesley Resident state: New York Party: American Progress Your plan for Reconstruction of the South: -Blacks guaranteed equal rights of Whites of their respective sexes. -Only punish those directly responsible for secession, as many of these people are fighting because its their home turf. This punishment should be severe, as their actions costed the lives of many Americans. A special prison should be dedicated to keep these people in some form of punishment, but sort of like home arrest with their new home being at this prison. -There shall be a military Governor for every State, which shall serve a term for ten years to oversee Federal reconstruction, which can be overthrown if 66% of the population sign oaths of loyalty and honor emancipation. Once the term is over, democracy is back. -States that rejoin shall be re-organized under the respective military governor's, where parties can regain influence and business owners can work with other States. -Citizenship will be inherited through annexation of the South for all, even those punished. -Slave owners will have no charges, as they technically did nothing illegal.

    OOC: Okay, we need at least one challenger. I'll wait until tomorrow to do this election.
  26. Ok, I've updated the 2020 scenario. I won't put it on the campaign page until a major person declares, but here's what is in the attached update below: Voters are less undecided than previously. Trump is more likely to secure renomination Default Democratic candidates are down to 8 candidates (with number what-if's available). California primary and the Democratic Convention have been moved up. Jason Kander has been added as a what-if candidate for Dems. A January start date is available, but August is the default.

I had decided that, if I revisited it, I would start with each relevant nation or other major polity's 2048 election (or the closest thereto). Of course, as with today, not every nation in the geopolitical scheme of my envisioned future can be called democratic enough for a contested, free-and-fair election - the scheme has just changed. There are also the Lunar elections (I already have a thread with ideas regarding that, people might recall), Martian elections (which are of a different tenor), and a few other additions here, as well as the borders, politics, and balance having changed internationally. More to come shortly.
