  1. October 1st, 2015 Joe Biden enters the race. Fast Forward to Conventions Fiorina was picked over Trump by third place John Kasich. Biden was picked over Clinton by Bernie Sanders Fast Forward to Election Night Almost a reverse of the actual 2016 election; Biden loses popular vote, but wins the electoral college.

    2016 Joe Biden Playthrough

    I was focusing on momentum and big states. Delaware, to be fair, doesn't give like anything.

    I'm putting this roleplay on a short break for about 5 days. You all can still debate and attack eachother in the meantime, but I just won't be posting election results. My schedule is getting chugged up with a huge amount of work (started around 34 now its up to 38 hours), college work (which luckily I have done a lot of), and other obligations.

    I'm gonna delay the election until he makes up his mind; I warn you though starting a new party is a lot more effort than a few sentences. Note how the Socialist party started even with a lot of effort. Plus, being a Conservative going Libertarian with a strong Conservative candidate and a strong Liberal candidate to keep those libertarians in is going to be tough. You'd have more luck with populism.

    the USA should implement a 539th electoral vote.

    I think that just comes to show that there is too much negativity in this world and people just need some good vibes, maannnnnn. *puff of the good grass* abolish parties to dab on the stereotypes

    the USA should implement a 539th electoral vote.

    If this two party system was so demonic, why does a demon like Donald Trump have higher approval ratings than Macron, Trudeau, and other prominent leaders in multiparty systems? Seems to me like the multiparty system in the modern era has just led to hell. ...maybe just have no parties?

    Libertarian Plan Attempt 2# It starts in the House, which easily passes with Conservative support. When it reaches the Senate, it has full Conservative support, and now it needs Liberal support. By a vote of 54-50, it reaches your desk. I assume you veto it, so it goes for a veto override. It starts in the house again, but it only reaches on 62% of the 66% of votes needed to continue, therefore killing the bills. Presidential Plan Attempt 2# It starts in the House. However, only a fraction of socialists and conservatives join the already fractured Liberals, failing the bill. You have one more congressional action before election is called.

    The President's weakness on Russia scares a lot of the population, especially after Russia has just carried out a test on a bomb that quote "shook the ground for hundreds of miles". While the President's words don't encourage homeowners that much, the crisis does come to an end. The additional troops conscript with glee. We dedicate a piece of land for bomb research in a desert, but it will take awhile to reconstruct tests. The military, in order to spite the President, utilizes their failed humvee and drives it on the White House lawn, and both tears up the lawn and breaks down. Your administration is humiliated. This was deemed appropriate. This event was where the President shined. Thousands of reserves rallied for the cause, and as the Hurricane died very quickly aid was distributed among the affected zones amazingly fast. Nobody died in this hurricane, and all property damage has been efficiently paid for by a mix of private insurance and public emergency funds. For the future, studies have solid proof of efficient strategies to avoid flooding in the future. This will lead to one of the biggest Congressional battles in history. This funding is secured efficiently, and has been correctly distributed to rebel groups in Chinese conquered territories. These rebel groups are getting stronger. The Battle of Congress Flood Control Act As the President is very successful at dealing with this crisis, this Act easily passes Congress as the studies the President ordered will be used to make this Act even better, even against Conservative criticism. FEMA This Act passes, honoring all sides wishes. The agency is created, and has a strong relation with the States and private industries to distribute aid exactly where it is needed. Libertarian Plan Attempt 1# This plan reaches the House floor first. With the Socialists in a concrete nay, and Liberals split, Libertarians in the Liberal make this Act barely pass the House. It reaches the Senate, where Libertarian presence is strongest. It easily passes the Senate, but is Vetoed by the President. Senate Libertarians try a veto override, pass it by the Senate, but due to lacking House Liberal support, fail to override the veto. Presidential Plan Attempt 1# House Liberals present this plan. Socialists are still on a concrete nay, and some moderates Conservatives do flip over, and since Libertarian presence isn't as strong in the House this Act passes the House. However, in the Senate, the Presidential Plan reaches a very hot 51-50 split. However, due to the Socialists refusing to compromise, the Act fails 51-53. Liberal leaders are worried that the socialists refusing to compromise will lead to the Libertarian plan passing.

Popularity of the Incumbent: The president is average, ending midterms with a 55% approval rating and 38% disapproval rating from the past poll. Events and Decisions for January 1945 - January 1949 for Pres. Ellis @Hestia11 1) An Update on Russia Russia has been mysterious to the entire world due to its strength. It remains the 1# world power, has the world's greatest population aside from China, and has technology that is scarier than what anybody has imagined. To many they are aliens. They are ruled by a monarch still, like much of Europe, but unlike other monarchies the Russian Monarch has absolute control, but due to the country's success is also the most loved person on the planet. In this timeline, they have managed to push deeper east and north into Siberia, as they had no hurdles in the industrial age and used wood as fuel to incentive land growth before switching to coal. As this empire may soon go to war with China, we may see the greatest death toll known to man. 2) Housing Crisis Due to high levels of economic growth and immigration, the housing market grew exponentially. However, a small hiccup in economic growth has caused a minor housing panic. This panic has led to housing prices falling so far by 5% nationwide, and some fear this will lead to a complete crash. 3) Pacific Defense Shall we increase our active military in order to provide more troops to the region? 4) Explosive Technology Word has reached you our scientists have discovered a new way of making bombs more efficient; however, before anyone could test it, it blew up a multi-million dollar research facility. The bomb was not that big, however it destroyed the entire building due to poor construction. 5) Automobiles in the Military Some models of this vehicle called a humvee have reached military command. However, it has failed various stress tests. Should we abandon this plan, or increase military funding? 6) Scandinavian Chaos While the world has been focused on China, Sweden recently and somewhat secretly annexed Norway and all of its territories through diplomatic means, including Greenland. Now, Sweden is the sole power in Scandinavia bordering Russia and Germany. 7) Hurricane Gandalf A terrible hurricane has just wretched the eastern coast of Texas, southern Louisiana, and southern Mississippi. However, it is not over yet. It remains a category five and is traveling up the mississippi rivers, creating massive flooding that has never been seen before. Some predict that this could lead to 1/3 of Louisiana being completely underwater. People have been evacuated, but its time for a Federal response 😎 Libertarians secure a Leader Liberal Senate Majority Leader Kenneth Lawson, replacing the previous leader, has just been announced by a group of about 30% of the Liberal Party's legislature, as the new leader of the Libertarian Caucus of the Liberal Party. They propose to the President about finally denationalizing the shipping industry, as profits have recently fallen by 35% as private industries, which have already been regulated, have been taking over. 9) Conservative Chaos After taking such heavy losses in the last election, Conservatives are scrambling to find a leader. While some support the last nominee for being simple, others rally behind the former VP. It looks as though both the Liberal and Conservative parties could be seeing a severe split as a risk of both parties. 10) Free Anything not included here you wish to implement? Congressional Majority Opposition @Reagan04 1) Block Measures As a majority opposition, you have the ability to block specific actions by the President. While I simulate votes and sometimes things change, this block will be much more meaningful than the usual blocking. You gain one of these a year, with a cap of 4. Note that you have these if you are really against something 2) Proposal As a majority opposition, you can likely propose and pass bills, though likely to be veto'ed. You gain the ability to propose one bill a year, with a cap of 4. Note this if you feel creative one day, or are really hostile against a specific policy.

    1944 Election Welcome to the election of 1944! This election, we see the popular socialist candidate take a step back, becoming the VP, to the disappointment of many voters. We see the current President running for re-election, and we see one of the weakest Conservative candidates in decades. This election comes with one of the lowest turnouts in many years, as nobody is excited about anything. Primaries There were so significant primaries. General Election Round 1 Ellis/Brown (Lib) 429 EV 53% PV [All States but the ones below.] Woodburrow/Curtis (Con) 108 EV 33% PV [MI, OR, WA, AZ, OK, TN, ID, UT, CO, SD, CU, MN] Thomas/Wallace (Soc) 28 EV 14% PV [NV, MT, WY, ND, NE, KS] Note: This shouldn't be championed as a political landslide for the Liberals; turnout was so bad that likely the numbers don't represent the population. Region Breakdown (Pop Vote) New England (ME, NH, VT, MA, RI, CT) : Lean Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: Shipping, Trade, War Industrial Centers (NY, PA, OH, IL) : Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: War, Trade, Economy Industrial Midwest (WI, MI, IN) : Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: War, Trade, Economy West Coast (CA, OR, WA) : Tossup | Region Hot 3 Issues: War, Immigration, Morality Southwest (AZ, NM, OK, TX) : Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: War, Immigration, Morality Southern Outskirts (LA, AR, MO, KY, WV, MD) : Lean Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: War, Morality, Economy Deep South (MS, AL, GA) : Greatly Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: Economy, War, Labor Upper South (SC, NC, VA, TN) : Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: War, Economy, Trade West (NV, ID, MT, WY, UT, CO, ND, SD, NE, KS) : Lean Socialist | Region Hot 3 Issues: Immigration, Environment, War Non-Continentals (HI, CU, PR, AK) : Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: War, Trade, Government Efficiency Swing States (MN, IA, NJ, DE, FL) : Lean Liberal | Region Hot 3 Issues: War, Economy, Morality Congress Liberal 55/104 Senate 49% US Rep Conservatives 46/104 Senate 41% US Rep Socialists 3/104 Senate 10% US Rep RP Note: Congress is now pretty much owned by a Liberal dominance, however the party itself is shattered between factions. @Hestia11 events tomorrow or the day after.
