  1. Let me know if I can help out! I have a good amount of issue images, a lot of logos for alternative parties, and I'm pretty good at making candidate images that are really nice looking (or at least I think so).
  2. I'm interested too! I've been thinking a lot about the US as a multi-party system as well, though I can only imagine it occurring if the US had a parliamentary system. (Quick question: are you using the US idea of center for the Liberal Party or closer to a European idea of center). Some proposed candidates: Socialist: Bernie Sanders Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Ayanna Pressley Elizabeth Warren Alliance: Nancy Pelosi Andrew Cuomo Gavin Newsom Chuck Schumer Liberal Party: Joe Manchin John Bel Edwards Susan Collins
  3. Curious what people think about this scenario: Imagine it's 5-10 days before the Democratic Convention starts and Joe Biden has a stroke, rendering him incapacitated. Who would the DNC/delegates run to as their pick for the nomination? Things to Consider: Would it matter if/who Biden announced as his running mate? Would the party aim for someone who is seen as a party unifying figure (a la Biden himself)? How much would the general political conditions (economy, Covid, protests) make a significant impact on the decision? Would it need to be someone seen as a caret

    Who is your VP?

    Adam Kinzinger Will Hurd (so sad that he's leaving the House) Nikki Haley Jeb Bush Susan Collins Condoleezza Rice (not that she'd ever agree to the job for anyone)
  5. Awesome! Can't wait to see more scenarios for Australia!
  6. Very interesting idea! Can't wait to see what it looks like
  7. I'd love to help out with different scenarios!
  8. Can't wait for a 1976 scenario!
  9. Suggestions for new issues: Farms/Farm Subsidies (but only as a small issue) Arms Race/Nuclear Weapons/The Missile Gap China/Quemoy & Matsu Cuba Vietnam (but only as a small issue) Issues To Remove: Law and Order (this issue is a holdover from the 1968 campaign when it was a major issue to address after the Long Hot Summer.) The Courts (There wasn't much controversy yet, as the "major" decisions of the Warren Court don't start until after the election. Plus it mentions the "Kennedy-Johnson years" in one of the blurbs) Civil Liberties (I don't feel like this was a big deal in 1960 since t
  10. I think there is still a fair amount that can/should be done: Update issues to better reflect the landscape in 1960. Some are still more accurate for 1968 than 1960. Candidate positions are off in some instances. For example, in 1960, LBJ is not seen as being very pro-Civil Rights Percentages, especially for the Democrats, feel off. For example, Humphrey should have no support in the "border states". His support was almost completely in the Rust Belt. Expand the VP choices for both parties. Let me know how I can help.
  11. First off - booth088: I really appreciate all the work you did on making this scenario! I've made a copy of the scenario for my open purposes (so that I can update the issues, etc), and I can't go in to add VP's. I've tried both from the Campaign Editor (where I get a "List index out of bounds (0) error) and by actually editing the .xml file (though I admit I'm not much of an expert at editing the original files). Any clue how to fix this problem? Thanks so much!
