I'll try to make you vote in past French presidential elections, but with today candidates.
I'll switch from a past candidate to a present candidate who has the same political positioning/behaviour/course/strength.

For example, 1965 nowadays would be something like that:

de Gaulle -> Sarkozy
Mitterrand -> Fabius
Lecanuet -> Jean-Christophe Lagarde
Tixier-Vignancour -> Gollnisch
Marcilhacy -> François Goulard
Barbu -> Hirsch

More about this later.

Of course I won't be able to make 2007 in... 2009.
But I'll try to make a 2007 in... 2017.

Is it an Hashmeite-esque "timeline" or should anybody give his own version ?

You'll be able to vote in each case, I have still to create the lists. Just wait a bit.

I know that this is "horrible" for great historical figures... But it's a way to have many present what-ifs "based" on historical precedents.

For the "big" candidates, I'll change for every election, so that Sarkozy will only be proposed once, Royal, Aubry, DSK, Bayrou, etc, also.
It will be far more difficult for the far-left and for the far-right, as they have a candidate in each election and not so many big figures nowadays...

Part One:
FRENCH PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION "à la 1965"
First round

6 candidates:

Alain Juppé (<-> Charles de Gaulle, big leader of the gaullist right)
Laurent Fabius (<-> François Mitterrand, already old leader of the left, but not first leader, and trying to come back)
Jean-Christophe Lagarde (<-> Jean Lecanuet, not very well known centre-right man, rising star, at ease in the medias)
Bruno Gollnisch (<-> Jean-Louis Tixier-Vignancour, strong and "vocal" figure of the far-right)
François Goulard (<-> Pierre Marcilhacy, individualistic and unknown politician from the pro-European centre-right, who often dissents with the right)
José Bové (<-> Marcel Barbu, populist and so-called "generous" guy from the civil society, weirdly elected, based on strong "communities")

You have 6 votes, that you must split between 3 candidates: 4-1-1.

My votes:
4 for Juppé
1 for Lagarde
1 for Goulard


(I would have preferred 6 for Juppé or 4 Juppé-2 Lagarde, but this is the rule... designed to make things a little less "partisan" and a little more "suspenseful" with not too much "zeros")

Of course, the rule may seem hard when you have many candidates from one side and few from the other, but remember that, in the next elections, that will be different.
And you'll have:
Hollande, Royal, Aubry, DSK, Hamon, Peillon, Valls
Copé, Sarkozy, Fillon, Alliot-Marie, Villepin, Bertrand, Morin, Borloo
and many others Cheesy

So, it's just for fun !

Vote is open !

Complicated, yes, but because, we need to have a sort of real election and with, at most, 5 voters, we must have more votes...

Yes, but that's the mix of present and past, I mean, the contexts are so much different, that we can't make people match that easy, I tend to see it more irrelevant than pointless in fact. You know I already can't go in past what-ifs given that for me it's a non sense to vote for something that I didn't live in, so imagine what is this what-ifs for me! I can just go in present/future what-ifs.

Hmm, sorry to insist but I felt the need to say what I thought of this. This wasn't an offense against this thread, just a...you know...criticism...opinion...one more time, hope that's still allowed.

Of course I won't post in every thread toward which I would have some criticisms to do. But there are some, spontaneously, I share the criticisms I would have on. Maybe it's on those I feel more concerned.

For example alternative past timelines, I just can't go through that because in my mind the history could have only been what it has been, so once, while you were making an alternative past timeline, about French presidentials, I felt concern by the topic but as I can't go through it I signaled it, that I was incompatible with past timelines and period, you haven't seen me bitching each alternative past timeline (well, maybe one day if ever I fall on some people that take alternative past timelines too much seriously I'll renew the criticism again, but well, not even sure, and period). To make a full criticism about it, I could say that on the other hand it can be a good way to speak about history, and to make work the imagination.

But, well, here Fabien came with a new concept, still about something I feel concerned with, so well, I felt the need to give my opinion about this concept.

Spontaneity, criticism, once again, hope this is...allowed. Grin

It's not like if i were constantly bitching that thread, I gave my criticism, Fabien answered, I answered to Fabien.

Come on, we call it a dialog.

I can just go in present/future what-ifs.


Of course, it can't match perfectly, but you see that my 1965-like candidates aren't so bad (sorry for this lack of humility...).

In fact, more than the votes, we may have discussion about my choice of candidates (here, I'm speaking to Hash, Antonio, PGSable, etc, more than to you Benoît Wink).

BTW, trying to vote "honestly" in past elections is really interesting: see what Hans-im-Glück made on the German elections.
As for me, I honestly acknowledge that I may have been wrong in the 1930s, by voting for the DNVP or the "bad" Zentrum: that makes you ask difficult questions sometimes.
It forces you not to vote with your today mind, but to try to vote with a mind of the time.

It also forces one to acknowledge that he may have not been a "résistant" in 1940, or even after 1942. (always my same example, sorry).

But, of course, we need to know the real context of the time: that's not easy.
Another example on the other side: it's difficult today to say that Allende wasn't a good president; very few have the courage to say this. (I'm not saying that Pinochet was right, of course... just trying to think with a 1971-72 mind).

To come back to this topic, it's just a game, un prétexte to put together some names of today French politics in an odd but fun mix.
So, it's less serious than the other types of games...

Official results of the first round

30 votes
José Bové 9 votes (30.0%)
Jean-Christophe Lagarde 7 votes (23.3%)

Laurent Fabius 6 votes (20.0%)
Alain Juppé 5 votes (16.7%)
François Goulard 3 votes (10.0%)
Bruno Gollnisch 0 vote (0.0%)

Second round

2 candidates:

[b]Alain Juppé [/b] (<-> Charles de Gaulle, big leader of the gaullist right)

You have 2 votes, that you cast for only one candidate or split between the two candidates.

I have nothing against not liking past timelines, I have nothing against stating it once maybe twice. But going in every thread which you see to re-state your opposition and feelings to such things is annoying, useless and also post-padding. Also, what's the use? Attention-whoring? Post padding? Trying to make others dislike it too? Ruin it?

I don't post in timelines which I am not interested in, unless it's really stupid so that I can ruin the stupidity by posting about elephants, rhinos and communists.

I don't care if you don't enjoy the genre, I do, others do, others don't. I won't go on a Jihad to convert the Pagans. I find it interesting, if you don't, meh, what am I supposed to do? Cry about it when I go to bed?

Anyways, damn, it's only meant for fun and it's a game. And yes, anyways isn't a word. Sue me.

I say it Wink, and that's why it irks me to see leftists naming every damn thing after a mediocre President-turned-leftie-martyr. Of course, if I say it too loud, I get called a fascist Pinochet-loving bastard.

See, that's why I can't go through this things, because it's impossible to put yourself in "what you would have done if you lived at that time", first because you just can't know your reactions in something you don't live, haven't lived, and second, because all what we are is the fruit of the past, you in the past is a non sense because what you are is the fruit of this, by negating this you delete either what you are and what has been the past, see? Well, this is for the serious arguments. And my mind is so tied to this that I can't go through this.

Haha. Wonderful, I was finishing to answer to Fabien glad to having had a discussion about that, and "Warning - 2 new replies have been posted". I discover the nuking post of Hashemmite.

Ok, I think I already made my point I just engaged a criticism here, just a dialog, if you can't get that, or don't want to get that, then I can do nothing for it. I explained my point that I don't bitch in all threads to which I would have criticisms, and it's a matter of fact, I don't, now, if you think that's wrong you will have to come with some inventions to prove it, I just posted in one of your timeline to say that i was incompatible with, and, period.

So, I see all your last post as total unfairness.

You ate something wrong or?
