United North America 2008


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! This is a preamble to my new United North America scenario! Please let me know what you think!

UNITED NORTH AMERICA 2008

In this scenario, the United States and Canada have become one nation. Canada’s economy collapsed in 2005 and the only choice was to be absorbed into the United States. Canada amid protest signed the deal in February 2006. Prime Minister Paul Martin and President George W. Bush were the signatories. After Congressional elections were held in 2006 the seats were Republican-17 Democratic-17 American Progressive-17 and Socialist 13. There are 611 Electoral votes in the new nation. 306 EV are needed to win or the election will go to the bitterly divided House of Representatives.

ELECTORAL VOTES FOR THE CANADIAN STATES:

British Columbia – 8

Alberta – 6

Saskatchewan – 3

Manitoba – 3

Ontario – 19

Quebec – 13

Newfoundland – 3

New Brunswick – 3

Nova Scotia – 3

Prince Edward Island -3

Yukon – 3

Northwest Territories – 3

Nunavut -3

The following are excerpts from the Treaty of Union between Canada and the U.S. Signed on February 16, 2006:

CANADIAN DEMANDS:

- The Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut be given statehood despite their small populations. They will be allotted 3EV each. The rationale for this was to give Canada more of a say during an election.

- No term limits for Presidents.

- As long as citizens, who have not been born in Canada and the U.S., have held citizenship for 20 years, they may run for the Presidency.

U.S. DEMANDS:

- U.S. political system be adopted.

- Scrap the monarchy.

- No Distinct status for Quebec (Secession will mean war!)

- Congressional elections will be held immediately November 2006.

UNITED NORTH AMERICA PARTIES AND CANDIDATES:

Thank you I put alot of work into the map and my previous map just had the U.S. and little squares above for the Canadian provinces. I felt I should try to make a map as large as possible to accomodate this scenario. Those working on a world map will have their hands full! :) I am glad you enjoyed it. FrenchFisher all my scenarios have been unbiased, if they are biased scenarios become boring and unrealistic even if you are in favor of its bias. I hope its playability is good.

Ack, maybe the game is creative, but unbiased, at least in regards to candidates, is really not true. The Republicans have good all-around candidates, Jeb Bush for example has 4 everywhere, and some real people are just simply unrealistically strong, Giuliani has 4 fives! I mean, I know he has a good reputation and is considered to be a good politician, but come on now. Alan Keyes has 4 everywhere except Charisma (and Obama is pretty weak)! Condolezza Rice, often called negatively "intellectual" and boring has 5 in debating! When you turn to the socialist party and its candidates (BTW, no socialist party I know of uses the hammer and sickle, they use the symbol of a fist holding a rose), you also see bias. Though Layton's stats are better than in P4E, his description tells us he's a "left-wing extremist"... Michael Moore has a '1' integrity and is told to have made "fictional and slanderous" documentaries :rolleyes: . The other candidates are so-so at best, horrible at worst. And then to the Republicans' splinter group... Charest a good politician? Good God man, you must know nothing of the man. Even at his most popular, he was called the "mouton" (sheep) for his hair and way of acting. At most, we can say he's a good debater when on the offensive, beyond that, he's weak.

Otherwise, it seems interesting and relatively unbiased. To those interested in telling me to relax "it's only a game", remember that Hardrightconservative was asking people for comments.

Well you do have a point about some of the right wingers being a little point heavy (Day) but opinions will filter through no matter what, even on some of the liberal scenarios, overall I think it was good work Hardright, I hope you will continue to come up with interesting and freash ideas! :)
