    Zimbabwe Presidential election 2018

    I don't understand why people in such impoverished countries support the same parities over and over again,other then election meandering and corruption.

    Alternate US Presidential Elections 1788 - 2016 V2

    Don't take offense to this but I feel as if this is just to similar to OTL,with the presidents,and elections,and so on. Especially with other Candidates winning and you putting "Same as so and so as they agreed on most issues" No presidents term will be the exact same as another persons,just saying,I don't understand the point of putting effort into events that happen outside of the presidency,instead of putting work into the presidents term themselves.

    Confederate States of America play through

    1873 Presidential Elections Democrats -VP Robert M.T. Hunter -KY Sen. John C. Breckenridge -MO Gov. Francis P. Blair Jr -GA Sen. John B. Gordon It is a battle of the same temperaments in a two versus two manor, The hard-nosed,aggressive rhetoric of Blair and Gordon,and the articulate and careful rhetoric of Breckenridge and Hunter. Statehood making was a major issue in the primaries. 4 New states were hearing gambles. Cuba,Oklahoma,New Mexico,and Arizona. Oklahoma was the nearest to officially becoming a state after Pres. Lees negotiations. Lee of course signed an order to let new states decide if slavery were to be legal there. Hunter had the same view of slavery as Lee,but moreso Liberal. Hunter flat out said that "Slavery will be,and should be one day illegal." Hunters purpose for this was to garner more trading partners and allies. Breckenridge was fine with Lee's slave law,but was kind of murky on his actual view of slavery. Blair flat out wanted to make slavery illegal. He said "It is in-humane,it will garner us allies,and open up work for new opportunities with more workers,and more entrepreneurs." Gordon was pro-slavery flat out. He said if they were to make slavery illegal it would "Be a second depression for our young country". John B. Gordon was crude,and tough. He was carrying the slavery bearer for the Democratic Party. All candidates wanted to make the colonies new states eventually,with also all wanting to expand the railroad system. Immigration was starting to arise as an issue,The Democratic party and Whig party were very different on the issue,With Dems being pro and Whigs being anti. John B. Gordon was the most anti-immigration dem candidate. Saying "We must take care of our own before others". The Primary is completely expected to be a tossup,with nobody having a clue who will win. Round 1 (1):GA Sen. John B. Gordon-30.1% (2):VP Robert M.T. Hunter-27.9% (3):KY Sen. John C. Breckenridge-24.4% (4):MO Gov. Francis P. Blair Jr.-17.6% It is shown that the CSA is not yet to completely embrace slavery illigalization,with Blair Jr. finishing last. However,the most pro-slavery candidate,Gordon finished first,with VP Hunter in close second. Round 2 (W):VP Robert M.T. Hunter-56.8% (L):GA Sen. John B. Gordon-43.2% Hunter pulls through with the victory. He selects General P.G.T. Beauregard as his VP,sticking with his Generals,saying "After President Lee we can see how amazing the leadership qualities generals have at a national level". In BREAKING news Gordon announced after hearing his defeat that he will be running as a independent in the general election saying "Our country can not illegalize slavery,and destroy our economy". TN Sen. Andrew Johnson is also running as an independent,meaning there will be 4 candidates on the General election ballot (notice at the moment there is only 1 round for the general election,meaning a simple majority of votes will win) ROUND 1 MAP-Hunter blue,Breckenridge yellow,Blair Jr. green,Gordon red ROUND 2 MAP-Hunter blue,Gordon red Whig candidates (TO BE UPDATED) -MO Sen. John B. Clark Jr. -MS Gov. Lucius Q.C. Lamar -GA. Sen. Alexander H. Stephens (Former Democrat and VP)

    The economy has already crashed,if you read the timeline of Lee's presidency,Because of the Middle-east cotton boom. If you are referring to what will happen to the economy when and if slavery is made illegal,you will see. I didn't know what you were referring to.

    The support was great by the CSA (In this timeline) to make slavery illegal completely-but that failed greatly (SO FAR) but a more suttle implementation is having a referendum for each new territory which passed,which is a start.

    There has been many clauses changed,Davis changed alot to do with votes,The "Fair elections act"(whatever one I named that changed to popular vote) Included only over-bearing laws would need a super majority vote (Example-COMPLETELY outlawing slavery) This bill simply holds a refrerendum for new territoes to vote on if slavery should be legal or illegal-That apeased the states rights crowd,as it is the people in the state that are deciding.
