New American Party?

Recommended Posts

I'd definitely try it. :);)

The backdrop is that the Democrats win big in 2016 and 2020 thanks in part to the rise of a splintered 'Tea Party' and with Rand Paul being the libertarian candidate for both elections. In 2020 a third party appears called the "American Party" which has a moderately social platform but extremely socialist and liberal on economics. In 2024 the Democrats once again win the election but just barely, finally in 2028 the Tea Party has finally decided that it will make amends with the Republican Party and fields candidates in the party. The Republican Party wins in a blowout. The next election in 2032 the American Party has become a leading third party and causes this election to become a toss-up against an unpopular incumbent Republican president and an American Party candidate seen as a the only true chance for actual change. Thoughts?

And who are the candidates? Most who'd be likely in 2032 would be teenagers or college students, or in their 30's (40's if they'd be 'elder statesmen/women at that time) right now...

I'm still creating the scenarios, but I'm taking state house and senate members as the replacing politicians. I'm creating house and senate scenarios also in the congress infinity to help me not make the winners of the congressional elections biased. The American Party candidates are a mix of fictitious and real world people. The Republicans and Democrats are mostly going to be real world candidates, but it'll get to the point that most of the known people are like 60 or 70, so towards the end some of the candidates will most likely be also fictitious.

The 2016 Dem nominee / winner is Hillary Clinton While the Rep nominee I'm leaning towards is Sarah Palin or Jeb Bush and the Tea Party nominee will be Ted Cruz.

I will admit that I had, several years back, engaged on a somewhat similar (but, in the end, meant to have a much grander scope) idea, though I began relying on fictitious candidates much earlier than it seems you'll be doing. I also had an ascendant Third Party, though of a significantly different bent. However, my plans were quite a bit grander and also involved elections in other countries and culminated with a grand global (including early Lunar and Martial) geo-political stratagem by 2048 or so. It was never finished, though... Maybe I'll take it back up some day as it seems what you have in mind is not quite the same as my vision, and thus there should be little or no proprietary conflict.

I've actually been working on this for at least 2 years. I do plan on making elections after the rise of the third party, but it will be in a new communistic country that is established after the overthrow of the U.S.A. I have some sort of outlines for at least until 2100.

I actually conceived the geo-political point it was went to lead up to in my grand vision back in 1998. In fact, that's why the original year for it, 2048, was chosen, as it was 50 years in the future from that point. And, I've discovered, I still have the close to complete 2016 US Presidential scenario (made years ago for P4E2008 before even the conclusion of the 2012 election), which was one of the initial starting points, though I indeed see in terms of candidates and, to a degree, issues, it's woefully out of date. But, I don't want to engage in a protracted debate on propriety of ideas. I merely pointed out that your idea was SIMILAR in theme to an old project of mine - I wasn't actually accusing you of plagerism.

I would like to try yours also, mine was conjured as a parody of the illuminati or some group like that. The only problem is that there is so much to keep in file, names, elecions, and so forth that it slows me down.
