1972 fictional election

Recommended Posts

The Communists are a rising party. The Northeast has become heavily Communist. The Republicans and Democrats combined to try to stop the Communist wave. They have heavy support in the far-West and far-South. The middle states are the competitive states that will determine the election. Will the Republicans and Democrats be able to recover? or will the US turn to complete Communism? The Supreme Court will have many openings and if a Communist wins, the court will be pro-Communist.

Whose the Communist candidate, by the way? Is it a real Communist in the US at the time (like Alger Hiss; I don't know if Henry Wallace was still alive at that time), or will it be a fictitious one?

Communism in America? McCarthy Rolled Over in his coffin when he heard you type this post. In all seriousness, good luck with this.

Awesome scenario. Perhaps you could add a minor third way party, so anyone can watch the election without actually playing. The libertarians would came to my mind.

Not to slander the Civil Rights Movement as a whole, but the leadership had the affiliations, but maybe MLK as a Communist challenger. He may well have survived till then if the Communists were running the Federal Government at the time of his assassination (potentially speaking).

Elvis Presley could be a fun choice.

I could add a spectator party if you wanted to watch the election progress without being in it.

I am thinking about addig a third party that is a centralist party that is between the Republicrats and the Communists. Any suggesstions on candidates that would fit that role?
