  1. Past hour
  2. So is Kanye West, and West could pull in that kind of money for a lot more frivolous occasions and events than running for President. But is this Buttigieg worth the money, and worth the attention?

    Haha, good call. Rolling them bones... @Woot Patrick Henry decides to use the new Land Act to retire out west. Sadly, he and his oxen drown fording the river. Patrick Henry sought liberty, but he's been given death.

    Welcome to Era B, everyone! @Leuser ISSUE FOUR: The land act of 1806 has successfully helped populate the western territories. Ohio has become a state, and there can be little doubt that many more will follow. But... While allowing government land to be purchased on credit helped many liberals move west, it's now the liberals who are asking you to change the law back -- as conservative land speculators have been able to borrow unlimited funds to buy the land first before selling it at a huge markup to the liberals. They say that by requiring gold or silver in hand to purchase the land, this will keep the property values at a reasonable level. Conservatives say they should have the same right as the liberals to borrow money to buy land...and once it's theirs, they should have the right to sell it at any price they choose. What say you, Mr. President?
  7. Once done, it should look something like this I hope

    2016 Roleplay

    Nader holds rally in Chicago where he is endorsed by Fmr. Rep. John B. Anderson, candidate for president in 1980 "Thank you everyone. Our movement is gaining the big momentum! Here with me is someone who is sick and tired of the two party system. Ladies and gentlemen, John Anderson." The crowd went wild for the former presidential candidate. "Thank you Ralph. A few years ago,I ran for president." Anderson laughs at his own joke as the crowd does as well. "Well I'm not running this time but this man is. And you know what? He has my full support. He is the candidate that is truly the best to bring change to Washington DC. Ralph is the man of the people. He has slowly built up this movement. He has the support of Libertarians, Green, Democrats, Republicans and Why? Because we are all sick of the same old machine that is the two party system. Ralph Nader is a reformer and he along with independent members of Congress will bring change." Nader endorsed by Ross Perot, Fmr. presidential candidate in 1992 "Hello I'm Ross Perot and I'm endorsing Ralph Nader. He is the man that will change Washington politics and break the machine that is the two party system. He'll work to get better trade deals for Americans. He'll get rid of NAFTA. A vote for Ralph Nader is a vote for change and the beginning of reform." Nader fundraisers in Texas, Ohio, New York, New Jersey and Michigan

    Buttigieg is becoming the dark horse of the Democrats

    He was almost the DNC Chair. Trust me he’s well connected.
  10. Thoughts so far? Haven't even started on the percentages yet. A little new to editing scenarios to this extent. May add primaries eventually if this gets enough steam. I could use some help for party logos and maybe suggestions on new parties as well. United States - 2016.rar
  11. So, how many different corporate and special interest donors are these candidates expected to kowtow to, kiss the ass of, and serve the agendas of over the American people, their own original platforms, and any decent ethics for these funds they're raising, out of curiosity?

    Buttigieg is becoming the dark horse of the Democrats

    Very impressive that Mayor Buttigieg raised so much money despite spending so little and having very little infrastructure, staff, and name recognition.

    All tabs of Excel sheet have been updated. His appointment to Secretary of State and ushering in Ohio boosts John Jay to 2nd most popular conservative behind President John Quincy Adams. Also, with Ohio officially a state, @Agent B activates William Henry Harrison.

    Ok, that’s more than enough unless @mlcorcoran has a big scheme going. Otherwise, ready for your final issue @Leuser? Also, major announcement @Shamilton @Woot @Agent B: with the next issue, we will officially be in Era B! All the rules are the same, but vote totals in each state are very different. And we have a whole new deck of issues. Fun!

    Ok, @WVProgressive and I don’t have any moves left, so we’ll cede the rest of the states go to you guys. I believe that brings us to 108-80, with Burr/Monroe winning. Let me know if you guys dispute, @Hestia11 @jvikings1 Otherwise, ready for the next steps @vcczar

    Socialist Party Playthrough 1900 Onwards

    I was just about to ask when the Constitutional Convention to draft a new socialistic People's Constitution was going to be called, but it obviously won't be during a period of mourning for Debs.

    Socialist Party Playthrough 1900 Onwards

    President Dead! Debs Assassinated after speech to the IWW June 1st 1909, The Minneota Tribune Yesterday President Eugene Victor Debs, was shot while exiting a labor rally in Saint Louis Minnesota. The president had just finished giving a speech to the IWW, a union that he had helped to found, before leaving the building to mix with the crowd outside. As was usual the President brought big crowds with him wherever he spoke. The assassin was able to mix into the crowd, before working his way to President Debs. The assassin pushed his way through the crowd before taking aim at the president. The assassin fired three times two going into the president's abdomen, and the other missing him completely, the assassin attempted to escape, but was grabbed and stopped by a finish immigrant named Matti Halberg. After being questioned by police the assassin claimed he had been contacted by a group of industrialist lead by J.D Rockefeller, who paid him to assassinate the president, national authorities are investigating this claim. Debs was subsequently transported to to the hospital in critical condition, but was pronounced dead at 11:09 PM. Upon news of the assassination Vice President Robert La Follet has been sworn in as President, and it now falls upon him to lead the country through this time of national turmoil. Acting Chair of the Socialist Party Morris Hillquit has been sworn in as Vice President upon the request of La Follett. International leaders such as Leader of the Labor Party of The United Kingdom Keir Hardie, and the Co-Leader of the Social Democratic Party of Germany, and Leader of the Opposition, Karl Liebknecht have sent their regard to Debs family, and The United States, during this time of national mourning.
