United States 1992 Election

CAMPAIGN ’92

For twelve long years, the Republican Party has held uninterrupted control of the White House. Despite a great US victory in the Gulf War, unemployment rises throughout the nation. And with opposition from factions of the right and left, as well as the strong third-party campaign of Ross Perot, incumbent President Bush’s reelection chances appear uncertain. Will the United States vote to change course, or will the Republicans continue holding the White House for four more years?

Play as any of several candidates from the ’92 campaign, with hypotheticals!

 

  • Mario Cuomo was widely assumed to be the Democratic frontrunner prior to announcing his intention not to run.  What if the liberal New York governor threw his hat into the ring?
  • Friction ensued when Bob Casey, the outspoken pro-life governor of Pennsylvania, hesitated to endorse the Clinton/Gore ticket and was not allowed to speak at the Democratic convention.  What if Casey himself entered the race?
  • Conservative politico Pat Buchanan challenged incumbent President George H.W. Bush and lost.  What if he had carried the torch for the GOP?

Features include additional candidates and real-life events, including Perot exiting and reentering the race, Clinton’s infamous “Sister Soulijah” comments, LA riots, and more.

Quebec 2012 provincial Election (for Infinity version)

Quebec – 2012 2

After 9 years of power the Liberal Party of Quebec faces one of the greatest political crisis Canada ever saw. The students of Quebec are fighting against the raise of tuitons fees of 1625$ to an unprecedent amount of 3946$ per year. The pro independence Parti Québécois which leads the Official Oppositon and which faced one of its most historic crush in opinion polls took the side of the students like Quebec Solidaire. The new Coalition Avenir Quebec -a nationalist party- which started high in polls and led by the former pequist minister François Legault is now third in opinion polls and the Liberal Party faces the lowest opinion polls never received due to the scandals of corruption and the student crisis.

Can the PQ uses this crisis and at its benefit? Can the CAQ moves back first in opinion polls? Can the LPQ return the crisis at its benefit? Even more, the independentists of Quebec are now divided. The new Option Nationale -extremely independendist- and led by the former Pequist MP Jean Martin Aussant is winning supports among youngs, and Quebec Solidaire -also independentist- is increasing its supports. Despite the strategic vote, can they take votes to the Left, and essentially, the Parti Quebecois? Can the Parti Quebecois stops their expansion? The divided race is now open!

EVENTS:

-Dissolution asked by Jean Charest

-The Student Crisis

-Jean Charest: Pauline Marois wants a referendum on sovereignty!

-François Legault makes huge gains among independent voters

-Anticipation vote opens

Manitoba – 2016

Having rather caught the bug for scenario making, I moved on to Manitoba and present here a scenario for the 2016 general election in which the Progressive Conservatives defeated the NDP government.

Feedback of all sorts gratefully received, particularly with regards to issues and endorsers as I am sure there people out there with far more knowledge than I as to the intricacies of Manitoba politics.

PEI – 2015

A week or so ago, I thought I would try my hand at making a map and a scenario for PMI Canada, with the result being a scenario for Prince Edward Island’s 2015 general election, found below.

Any and all feedback anyone has to offer would be very helpful and very gratefully received – the issues are just the basic ones from the Canadian federal scenarios with those only relevant to the federal government removed and the only local endorsers I have are the two newspapers from Charlottetown and Summerside so any help there would be great!
