Libertarian Revolution 2020 – The Trump Incumbency

Update: As suggested, I have added the “Blue Dog” party, headlined by moving Governor John Hickenlooper (D-CO) over.  The party also includes Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Jim Webb (D-VA).  Also for fun, I’ve added Independent candidate Mark Cuban.  Comments welcome as always.

     No “state” primaries, all voting at once (sameday, around convention time)

(2016 total)
* Added Green Party – Jill Stein & Bernie Sanders
* Removed Democrat candidates who have declined to run, added Bill DeBlasio, Julian Castro, Martin O’Malley, Lincoln Chafee, Xavier Becerra, Steve Bullock
* Mark Cuban is an independent candidate

2020 – Trump Incumbency v2

This is a spin-off of my 2020 Libertarian Revolution campaign.  I’ve continued with that theme, but updated it to reflect Trump’s election.  It’s 2020 and Donald Trump is running for election, but the Republican Party has split.  There are two smaller parties in addition to Trump’s “Populist Republican.”
The “Constitutional Conservative Republican” party, led by Ted Cruz, represents those who are upset about Trump’s lack of Constitutional Conservative values, especially on trade and tariffs.

The “RINO Republican” Party represents the “establishment” Republicans such as Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan who have resisted the Washington shake-up that Trump has started.

Meanwhile the Democrats continue to swing left, but some moderates like John Hickenlooper may try to reclaim the party from its far-left movement.

Of course the Libertarian Party, though not putting up stellar numbers in 2016, has gained momentum.  The 2016 runner-up, 39-year-old Austin Petersen headlines a talented group of candidates along with “former” Republican Rand Paul.


One other thing that I did was do the Issues almost completely from scratch.  I felt that the original game, and many 2016 scenarios that I downloaded had way too many issues, as many as 50+ with many overlapping.  I think that like most things, less is more when it comes to issues and candidates so I kept both at small numbers.  The issues have been modeled after the website ontheissues.org, which also makes it easier to evaluate candidates’ positions on those issues.  So I have re-done all issue positions one by one for each candidate.

So I hope you like it.  Disagree with the candidates or parties?  Have a suggestion?  Someone missing?  Please comment.  Thanks for downloading!

2020 – Trump Incumbency

United States-2020 (v 1.7.6)

United States – 2020 (1.7.6)

 

 

After winning the 2016 in an upset, Trump faces some challenges from within the party and from outside of the party. The Democratic side is wide open after they experienced large gains in Governorships and were able to keep the Senate at 52-48 in the 2018 midterms.

V 1.7.6

  • Gov. Joseph P. Kennedy -> Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy
    • The Governor of Massachusetts in the scenario now is Gov. Jay Gonzalez
  • Made a few more changes to attributes and %’s.

V 1.7.5

  • Fixed bug in the Vice Leader ID for Duckworth allowing a Duckworth running mate and an additional Duckworth surrogate.
  • Added Endorser Charlie Sykes- Conservative Radio host from Wisconsin
  • Added Oprah Winfrey as a Democratic candidate

V 1.7.4

  • Fixes changes color, starting funds, attributes & %’s for Sen. Joni Ernst.

V 1.7.3

  • Alabama Junior Senator is now Luther Strange
  • Illinois Governor is now Christopher Kennedy
  • Res Tillerson is still an endorser but I have removed his surrogate.  If he is a sitting SOS he would be unable to hit the campaign trail for partisan purposes.
  • Gave Al Franken a bit of a boost in the Democratic primary.  His profile has risen over the first month of the DJT presidency and he already does have decent name recognition for a junior Senator of a medium size state.

V 1.7.2

  • This update fixes the endorser error
    • Big thank you to Anthony on this one

V 1.7.1

  • Sen. David Vitter -> Sen. John Neely Kennedy

V 1.7

  • This version adds a newspaper of record as an endorser for every state that didn’t already have one in the game (Iowa and New York).  This adds a total of 48 new endorsers.

 

GOP

  • President Donald Trump
  • Senator Ted Cruz
  • Governor John Kasich
  • Senator Rand Paul
  • Senator Joni Ernst
  • Senator Tom Cotton
  • Senator Ben Sasse
  • Actor Dwayne Johnson
  • Most of the remaining 2016 candidates and potential candidates are still there but turned off

DEM

  • Senator Kamala Harris
  • Senator Amy Klobuchar
  • Secretary Julian Castro
  • Governor Joseph P. Kennedy
  • Senator Cory Booker
  • Senator Martin Heinrich
  • Governor Steve Bullock
  • Senator Chris Murphy
  • Representative Tulsi Gabbard
  • Fmr. Secretary Jason Kander
  • Senator Al Franken
  • Miss Oprah Winfrey
  • As with the GOP, I left in all of the (well almost all of) the 2016 candidates and potential candidates as “off”

LIB

  • Adam Kokesh
  • As with Dem & GOP, I left in all of the 2016 candidates and potential candidates as “off”

GREEN

  • Winona LaDuke
  • Jill Stein (off)

United States 1960 Election

The United States 1960 Election

Version 1.0 [download here: united-states-1960 ]

This campaign is as complete as the 1788-1956 scenarios, which means it will be update with further improvements, most specifically events, in the future. There are likely small errors that I missed in this inaugural version.

This election follows the relatively peaceful and prosperous presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower, viewed by some as a rare progressive conservative.

Pres. Eisenhower reluctantly supports his VP, Richard Nixon, for his party’s nomination. However, the conservative Nixon has a challenger from the liberal Republican, Nelson Rockefeller, who give his wing of the party his name. Several minor candidates and a few what-if candidates are included.

The Democrats hope to take back the White House with four major candidates: Catholic Massachusetts Senator John F. Kennedy, the New Deal-ing Texan Lyndon B. Johnson, two-time nominee Adlai Stevenson, and the liberal nominee Hubert Humphrey. Several minor candidates and a few what-if candidates are included.

A 3rd party of unpledged Democrats is included in the game.

Please report any inaccuracies, errors, and constructive criticism. Thanks.

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.

2020- President Trump (v1.1, 12/07/2016)

President Trump:

 

Donald Trump shocked many with his 2016 Election victory, the 2020 Election looks to be even crazier. Donald Trump started off his presidency off with a bang, he’s built the wall and we’re back in Iraq. Will Trump run for re-election? Will he win again in a Reaganesque manner, or be humiliated by a Democratic Challenger?

The Republican party base loves the President, most of the GOP senators and representatives have been forced to embrace Trump. They gave Trump 100,000 troops in Iraq, a fairly moderate agenda, and unemployment is at 5.1%. Will “the Donald” run again? Can the Democratic party nominate a winning candidate?

Republic of Texas 2022

republic-of-texas-2022

In 2018, former U.S. President George W. Bush won the Presidency in a surprising upset of former U.S. Senator Ted Cruz.  Bush has had an uneventful but successful first term, with a thriving economy and an approval rating of 58%.  However, despite this, President Bush has opted to not run for reelection, citing his age (he’ll be 76 by the time of the election).  Once again, Ted Cruz is the favorite to win the election, but he is not without competition.  The following candidates are also running for the Presidency:

Tea Party

  • Governor Ted Cruz
  • Senator Pete Sessions
  • Senator Louie Gohmert
  • Territorial Senator Blake Farenthold
  • Senator John Culberson
  • Former Attorney General Ken Paxton
  • Former U.S. Representative Randy Weber

Republican

  • Secretary George P. Bush
  • Vice President John Ratcliffe
  • Senator Mac Thornberry
  • Former U.S. Governor Greg Abbott
  • Territorial Senator Bill Flores

Progressive

  • Governor Julian Castro
  • Senator Beto O’Rourke
  • Governor Mike Rawlings
  • Former U.S. Representative Marc Veasey
  • Former Governor Ivy Taylor
  • Territorial Senator Rodney Ellis
  • Mrs. Kat Swift

Blue Dog

  • Secretary Pete Geren
  • Senator Henry Cuellar
  • Territorial Senator Filemon Vela Jr.

Reform

  • Mr. Ross Perot Jr.
  • Mr. Chris Keniston

Libertarian

  • Mr. Michael Badnarik
  • Former LNC Vice Chairman R. Lee Wrights

Texas Independent

  • Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell
  • Reverend Scott Copeland

(Terr. Senator is equivalent to a State Senator, except they are more powerful and high profile because the country uses a unicameral legislature and only has 7 federal Senators)

Election 2016 ~ Time of Outsiders

Finally! The Personal Scenario is Released!

WILL NO LONGER BE UPDATED

The 2016 election is by far one of the most controversial and frequently talked about races in the history of politics. With two controversial candidates taking the state, many voters have found themselves alienated by the two major parties and have taken it up to themselves to flock to many minor parties, like the Libertarians, Greens, and even the Constitutionalists, McMullin, and La Fuente.

Will Clinton pull off a landslide? Can Trump defy all odds and win the Presidency? Can Gary Johnson find a way into the debates? 

The next President will have to deal with ISIS, taxes, the economy, the Supreme Court, and more, and the fate of the nation lies in your hands…

“WE ARE GOING TO WIN BIG!” – Donald J. Trump

 preelectionresults

With the most accurate polling of any 2016 scenario, you will have to campaign effectively and manage your time wisely to win over the crucial swing states. Can you pull off a Clinton landslide? Can a Republican take back the White House? Can McMullin win Utah? Can Johnson break 5%?

“I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email.” – Hillary R. Clinton

election-2016-issues

With new issues like, “Hillary’s Emails”, “Marijuana”, and the “Gender Gap” to stir things up, the election season is sure to be full of mudslinging and boasting as the candidates try to appease all voters. Now, voters will care about a wide variety of issues, instead of focusing on a few small ones!

“What is Aleppo?” – Gary E. Johnson

eventeventevent

With 50+ new random and scripted events added, the voter’s perception of the issues will adamantly change during the course of the game. Did a mass shooting just occur? Chances are, many voters will flip to the left on gun control issues. Terrorist attack? Now they may want more ground troops in the Middle East. Wikileaks release some Hillary emails? Yeah, she’s going down in the polls. Trump say something racist again? Now they’re undecided again; With so many events added, the gameplay will be anything but static!
