Classic Nasollah

Incompetence without malice is justifiable, especially under the circumstances of Trump.

Long story short:

The year of 1992 would eventually be remembered as the year of upsets. First, incumbent President George H. W. Bush, who not so long ago enjoyed astronomical approvals due to his handling of the Gulf War, found himself losing ground due to poor economic performance and the rebelion of GOP's far-right wing, symbolized by former Nixon speechwriter and pundit Pat Buchanan giving Poppy a serious challenge in New Hampshire and several other early states. The second wild card turned out to be Texas businessman H. Ross Perot, who mounted the strongest independent bid for the Presidency since George Wallace in 1968, although his appeal wasn't contained to one particular region. Although, due to emergence of somebody else, his strength would diminish and he'd end up in mid-single digits, he certainly helped to aggravate the situation.

But the biggest shocker was New York billionaire Donald Trump capturing, against all expectations, the Democratic nomination, besting frontrunners such as Bob Kerrey, Al Gore and Tom Harkin. Seemingly an unlikely candidate to appeal to the disaffected, Trump embraced on an energetic, populist campaign, breaking from a Third Way economic philosophy, while retaining more "moderate" views on issues such as crime. At the Democratic National Convention in his home city of New York, Trump choose a surprising vice presidential pick.

Long story short again. Back in 1986 Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton decided against seeking reelection, entering the Senate race instead, left open by a retirement of Dale Bumpers, his goal being, no doubt, raising his national profile (Bumpers himself left for a longshot presidential bid in 1988). However a tragedy happened days after Clinton won the nomination, as white supremacist named Richard Snell fatally shot the Governor during a rally in rural Arkansas. Snell had been at-large for two years, being a prime suspect in racially-motivated a spree killing.

The Arkansas Democratic Party decided to replace deceased nominee with his wife, First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton. Usually it would be an odd match for Arkansas, with Clinton's reputation as a "radical feminist", but she easily prevailed due to sympathy votes. Taking office in January 1987 she quickly made her mark at the Capitol. Having been considered a shoo-in for reelection in 1992, she dropped out after being offered the second spot by Trump.

Trump/Clinton ticket went on to defeat Bush/Quayle, with Perot lingering as a spoiler. Curiously, Ross actually got one electoral vote from a Maine faithless elector. It's been estimated later Perot's sticking in the race denied Trump/Clinton a majority.

Businessman Donald J. Trump of New York/Senator Hillary R. Clinton of Arkansas (Democratic): 370 electoral votes, 48% of the PV
President George H. W. Bush of Texas/Vice President J. Danforth Quayle of Indiana (Republican): 167 electoral votes, 46%
Businessman H. Ross Perot of Texas/Retired Vice Admiral James B. Stockdale of California (Independent): 1 electoral vote, 5% of the PV
Others: 1% of the PV

all humans are inherently evil

No, all humans have a potential for evil and they also have a potential for good.

You've met humans, I assume?

Will there be a by-election?

More interestingly, will his successor be fiscally liberal or conservative?

Maybe ISIS is ready for more a liberal salafist?

We've had such news before. I'll wait for something more concrete.

Prince Ali is OK, but I'm a bit concerned with that Blue Fellow's alleged links to Ergodan.

After reading that article I just made the mistake of visiting dailystormer.com. I would advise against it if you want to retain your belief in humanity.

Too late.

Don't get me wrong---- love Joisey, but if I had to pick somewhere close to NYC, I would probably venture a bit North along the Hudson River in New York State in a medium sized affordable town, where I could drive down before jumping on a train into the City....

Black and strong. I accept no profanation of my coffee. Tongue (usually two cups of black coffee a day).

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if there was a deal between Trump, Pence, Ryan, Priebus and possibly others.

Where do you think should I have posted that thread?

It deals with first mention of Trump on Atlas, so I thought Forum Community. History is, well, a diffrent animal.

I think I'm the one who reported this. Reports are not neccesairly made with intention to punish an user. We have a lot of reports simply asking to move thread and so on.

Naturally one can't see which posts were reported and it wouldn't matter anyway. You could delete a post in question but once reported, we can still "resolve".
