Republic of Texas 2026

republic-of-texas-2026

In 2022, frontrunner and Tea Partier Ted Cruz won the Presidency. However, shortly after reaching the pinnacle of his political career, Texas’s economy plundered, and so did his approval ratings. Only 18 months into his Presidency, the unemployment rate has skyrocketed to 15% and Cruz has Texas on the brink of war with the United States, resulting in a very poor approval rating hovering around 25%. Because of this, many Tea Partiers have disavowed President Cruz and most members have ditched the party for the Republicans.  Even his Vice President, Ken Paxton, is considering a run against him.  The candidates are as follows:

Tea Party

  • President Ted Cruz
  • Vice President Ken Paxton (undecided)
  • Territorial Senator Debra Medina

Republicans

  • Governor and former Vice President John Ratcliffe
  • Governor Scott Turner
  • Mr. Salem Abraham
  • Territorial Senator Blake Farenthold (former Tea Party candidate)
  • Secretary of Agriculture Sid Miller
  • Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Wallace B. Jefferson
  • Territorial Senator Pete Olson
  • Governor Four Price
  • former U.S. Representative Will Hurd
  • former Texas State Representative and Speaker Joe Straus
  • Governor Glenn Hegar
  • Territorial Senator Jeff Leach
  • Territorial Senator Jason Villalba

Progressives

  • former Governor Mike Rawlings
  • Senator Joaquin Castro
  • former Mayor of Houston Annise Parker
  • Governor Mary Gonzalez
  • Territorial Senator Borris Miles
  • Mr. Alex Mendoza

Blue Dogs

  • former Governor Ivy Taylor (former Progressive Party candidate)
  • Territorial Senator Filemon Vela Jr.
  • former U.S. Representative Pete Gallego

Reform Party

  • Mr. Ross Perot Jr.
  • Mr. Chris Keniston (off) (Perot’s running mate in 2022 and presumed running mate in 2026)

Texas Independent Party

  • Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell

Libertarians

  • Mayor John Ramsey
  • Mr. Rodney Caston

Green Party

  • Mrs. Kat Swift (former Progressive Party candidate)

 

Note:  This is my final Republic of Texas scenario.  My idea is that Joaquin Castro wins this election and, shortly thereafter, negotiates the annexation of Texas back into the United States.

Ultimate American Empire 2020

 

rsz_2020

*Note this ignores the recent 2016 elections*

     The political climate of Obama’s presidency has caused a separatist movement of mostly Tea Party supporters to field their own candidates and have their own primaries. This along with Sen. Rand Paul joining the Libertarian party led to the loss of the Republican nominee Fmr. Gov. Sarah Palin in 2016 to Fmr. Sec. of State Hillary Clinton. A new party has recently captured the hearts of voters in the south, especially in Texas, known as the American Party. They have elected two Senators, One Governor, and a couple dozen Representatives since 2016.

     Now is the 2020 Election and Pres. Clinton is facing a tough field, she’s being challenged by members in her own party including one of her cabinet members, while the Republicans have done a good job recruiting some heavyweights to run. The Tea Party has  a pretty lackluster slot of candidates, but they do have the 2016 Republican nominee Sarah Palin. The Libertarians have Sen. Rand Paul once again, while the Green party is contested with Jill Stein being challenged by a strong contender. The American Party is running their first Presidential campaign. Clinton is getting help from pushing the passage of the 28th Amendment and the statehood of Guam and Puerto Rico. Will Pres Clinton win reelection, or lose to the Republicans, the Tea Party, or the Americans?

Texas Secession Scenario

After winning the 2016 election by a landslide, conservatives everywhere are upset about the first 8 months of the progressive and liberal Hillary Clinton presidency.  With a democrat-controlled congress, President Clinton has passed legislation that has infuriated the right-wing.  In only a matter of months, she has managed to pass legislation that effectively abolishes the death penalty, contains strict gun control measures (such as completely outlawing the carrying of guns in public and owning a gun larger than a pistol), requires every police officer in the country to wear a body camera, raised the federal minimum wage to $12 per hour and tying it to an inflation index, while also greatly decreasing debt for college students. She has also allowed much more than the previously proposed 10,000 Syrian refugees into the country, cut back on deportations and border control, and restored the right to vote to thousands of convicted felons.  As a result of these drastic measures, conservatives, especially southerners, have declared much of this legislation “unconstitutional”, with Texas Governor Greg Abbott calling Clinton a “dictator”.  Shortly after this, Tea Party members in Texas drew up plans to secede from the United States.  After Texas declared its independence, President Clinton responded by surprisingly allowing Texas to secede (believing that they wouldn’t be able to survive on their own), but threatening to start a second civil war if any other states join in the Secession.  After a few months of Greg Abbott serving as the acting President, Texas lawmakers have determined that they will elect their 1st President in November of 2018.  Most of the Constitution is similar to the original U.S. Constitution, with the only major difference being that they will use a unicameral legislature with just 1 Senator from each territory in an attempt to give more power to the states. There are 3 major parties: the Tea Party, the Republicans, and the Progressives, with Ted Cruz of the Tea Party the favorite to become President.

2020 – The Libertarian Revolution 3.0

petersen_in_2020

UPDATE 11/9/16 So I’m not sure what I’ll wind up doing with this campaign.  Last night was, for me, a pleasant surprise.  I’m leaning at the moment with leaving the way it is, after all it is a fantasy scenario, and we have fictional Confederacy campaigns here, for Pete’s sake.  Alternatively, I would re-do the campaign with Trump as the incumbent, remove the Alt-Right party, the GOP becomes the “New Republican Party”, separate from the “Conservative Party” and the Establishment party with Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and their ilk.  Let me think on this for a few days.

 

Hi all!  This is my first published campaign.  I’ve seen all the campaigns for the present and past, but I was playing around with some scenarios and decided what the heck, let’s take a gaze into the crystal ball.  If Hillary Clinton got elected, we would, in my opinion be in for a very rough ride.  It’s times like those that Americans finally take notice and reject Progressivism, much like they did when 1920 brought in conservative president Warren Harding, along with Prohibition (ok so it wasn’t all good).  Please give me your feedback, I’ll be revising and making updates based on suggestions.  It’s my first published campaign ever so please be nice 🙂


Despite Gary Johnson’s loss in 2016, a strong showing in the popular vote has led to a nationwide rise in the Libertarian movement.  Many conservatives and former Republicans are now flocking to the Libertarian cause.

Hillary Clinton has had a disastrous four years and now more than ever Americans have woken up and demanded change.

There is now about a 20% nationwide following for the Libertarian Party.

Addition of the following Libertarain candidates to 2016 runner up Austin Petersen:
Congressman Dr. Rand Paul
Former Governor Mitt Romney
Actor and Comedians Drew Carey & Penn Jilette
News host Alex Jones

However the Bernie movement will not die quietly either.  There are equal calls from the left to bring down the Clinton machine too.  The former Green Party and Socialist movement have combined to form the new Globalist Party.  Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein are among the foremost candidates for this party that advocates sweeping global change, a new world order, and a global borderless society.

Among all this, the GOP is desperately trying to re-invent itself and becoming a true Constitutional Conservative party.  Texas’s own Ted Cruz and Greg Abbott are front-runners, but conservatives like Tom Cotton, Ben Sasse, and even Trey Gowdy are throwing their hats in too, as many moderate or socially-liberal Republicans have fled to the Democrat or Libertarian parties.

The issues of “Social Justice” and “Government Accountability” have been added.

UPDATE 9-18-2016

  • Modified polls & fixed error where Libertarian poll was not taking effect.
  • Added Breitbart News & Glenn Beck as interviewers.
  • New candidates:
    • GOP: Joe Walsh, Bob Corker, Chris Christie, Trey Gowdy
    • Libertarian: Adam Kokesh
  • New issues: Jobs, States Rights, Marijuana

UPDATE 10-20-2016

  • Republican party has spun off the Populist Nationalist (Trump, Christie, Sessions) and the Constitutional Conservative Parties (Cruz, Lee, Pence, Abbot, Sasse, Gowdy).  Moved
  • Democrat Party has spun off Globalist (Sanders, Stein) Party

v 3.2 (11/22/2015)

  • Adjusted many of the percentages for the Democratic Primary

  • Fixed issue with election ending before polls closed in Alaska

  • Mclain and Brown are now the only two on the ballot in CA and the only two with percentages here to start

 v 1.7 (4/21/2015)

v 1.6 (4/21/2015)

  • Updated some of the starting numbers and tightened up the party preference voting and lowered undecideds to create a more realistic 1960 electorate.  (particularly in the south)
  • Johnson is now in the VP list for Kennedy.  (You don’t have to offer Johnson the VP slot once Kennedy reaches the delegate count during the convention.  You can now just chose him from the regular list)
  • George H. Bender is now “off”
  • Changed a couple of the issues to a more 1960 platform.  Now includes Kennedy’s Catholicism as well as a general “cold war” issue.  Also reworked the descriptions for Government Spending.
