  1. Crazy seeing how close States with now greater Hispanic populations were. If I was a GOP operative, I would have been doing outreach to keep it close, which would also avoid a Blue Texas or Arizona, and perhaps even help in Florida.
  2. Libertarian Republicans Progressive Democrats Social Democrats
  3. 1. Moderates 2. Agrarian 3. National Dem 4. Compassionate Con
  4. I'm just worried this will be a repeat of 1948: an unpopular President that is expected to be defeated by a decent margin, but through a few key issues and a few blunders, manages to pull a victory.
  5. I made it 271-267 with Clinton winning by simply giving three counties, one from CA and two from NY, to TX.
  6. Everytime a book like this covers things Eisenhower did, the more I respect him as a President. Things still progressed under him, but the progress was done in ways that didn't delay future progress or recklessly abandon tradition.
  7. Dang, things like that I did but have almost forgotten I did haha. That was fun to finish up, be nice if we could do more cool things like that.
  8. If only my favorable ideologies existed, then the worst of them would come out, and end up doing bad things. It is always good to have people you do not disagree with in office alongside whom you like, because it helps drive things to be moderated and more transparent.
  9. It is like he has simultaneously had a reality check while wanting to put up the whole "everything is okay" attitude.
  10. I don't think many people actually give a damn about DC Statehood, its just one of those niche issues that, when put on a platform, people are just like "sure, whatever, go ahead". It should be avoided as a primary campaign issue, however, since it can be used to grab voters who will fall for the senate packing argument. I still disagree with DC being a State though personally.
  11. Barack Obama, mainly because he handled Domestic crises well without creating a divide that did not previously exist. Donald Trump, mainly for creating new divides and abusing his power in office. Eisenhower, because he mastered the art of moving the country at a realistic pace while keeping it united. Andrew Johnson, because he absolutely stunted the future of the country with his actions. FDR, mainly because it is the amount of history taught and the circumstances around him that make him more popular rather than he himself personally. Carter, mainly because he
  12. I'd argue Clinton is much higher: read a few books, and he and his administration, especially with the whole Third Way theme, really put themselves on the spot consistently not only against the Republicans, but against their own party at times.
  13. I love Klobuchar, and still hardly know who Tim Kaine is beyond being a Virginia Senator who was Hillary's running mate. This is nowhere near a "Tim Kaine" situation, as: A. She is a she. B. She is from a battleground region. C. She had nationwide exposure campaigning. D. She has already been involved with the media. E. She is, for a moderate, progressive in areas usually unheard of in the mainstream: unions, labor, etc. F. People from outside the Democrats know who she is and like her.
  14. Event 1: Party runs a TV ad across the States of Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee. The TV Ad covers the platform of the Party, as well as images of the three major campaigners within the Party: B. Lee, Scott, and Cruz. Highlights under B. Lee: Constitutional Freedoms, A Return to Normalcy, Community Highlights under Scott: Equality, Education, Employment Highlights under Cruz: Second Amendment Rights, Lower Taxes, Lower Debt Event 2: Cruz Barnstorms across South
  15. I edited the one I did yesterday since I had time, just be aware.
  16. Another busy day for me... EDIT: Gonna add stuff to the events now that I got some time. Event 1: Lee campaigns in Pennsylvania on Religious Freedom. "Pennsylvania was founded on religious freedom, something that the Quakers established as a human right. Although politically diverse, Pennsylvania has always been open and free about their social freedoms. People deserve to be treated equally, and religious freedom is a big part of that. We need to get over the animosity towards other religions developed during the War on Terror, and instead focus the effort on uniting our
  17. We might see similar politics to West Virginia, where local parties dominate not necessarily the same as the national parties.
  18. Event 1: Lee hold Pro-Business event in New York "New York has always been the staple of the business community, especially with its dominion over local politics. New York has also put in more money into our Government than it takes out. With our Government expanding beyond the traditional Presidency, States need to have a clear grasp on their local economies. This also means, however, that the local political dominions are going to conflict with the national interests due to coalitions. The True Conservatives, however, understand this, and we will work hard to promote business interests
  19. Event 1: Lee Stops by Indiana to raise support. Event 2: Scott Expands Minority Outreach to Georgia. Event 3: Cruz continues to barnstorm in Texas. Kinda busy, just brief events.
  20. Event 1: Bill Lee champions the Southern Message outside of his Governor's mansion in Nashville. "When our People decided to go to a new system of Government, we knew that we had to remain true to our values. As Tennesseans, as Americans, we know that not only do the words of our Founding Fathers resonate with us, with how we believe in freedom and liberty, but we also share a common culture. As I have traveled to other States, especially those in the South, I have witnessed so many acts of good that truly make me want to preserve those traditions that keep our communities connecte
  21. @Mr.Blood Lee will run for Alexander's retired 2020 Senate seat.
  22. Party Leader will be Bill Lee, Religious Conservative Governor of Tennessee. Edit: If it can't be a Governor, make it a leadership system where Chair of the Federal Party is Mike Lee, and the Chair of the State Party is Bill Lee.
