1950

Senator Richard Russell (S-GA)/Governor Strom Thurmond (S-SC)-108, 59.8% of the popular vote.
Vice President William Cooper (P-TE)/Governor Earl Long (P-LA)-8 EV, 40.0% of the popular vote.
Other (Socialist, Communist, Prohibition)-0.2% of the popular vote.

After nearly six years of continuous war, with Virginia and Kentucky under occupation, the Populist Party’s twelve year hold on government collapsed, and the Sovereignty Party, under Richard Russell, won a landslide election, with the state of Florida being the only state carried by the Populists. Russell, running on a platform of “total victory or honorable peace”, and opposition to voting rights for non-whites.

1956

Fmr. Rep. William Faulkner (P-MS)/State Attorney General Tom Clark (P-TX): 68 Electroal Votes, 57.5% of the popular vote
Fmr. Governor Coke Stevens (S-TX)/coach George Barclay (S-NC): 46 Electoral Votes; 41.2% of the popular vote
Other (Socialist, Communist, Prohibition)-1.3%% of the popular vote.

The Russell Administration proved to be an unpopular deal for the Sunny South. The loss of Virginia was destructive to the Southern exporting economy as the crucial base at Norfolk was lost. This caused thousands of shipping related jobs to simply leave the CSA. The loss of the multimillion dollar Richmond Iron Works was crucially felt in the steel producing states of Tennessee and Arkansas. The loss of Kentucky further robbed the Confederacy of the coal needed to power the growing urban environments on the Atlantic Coast.

President Russel handled the refugee crisis in a sloppy manner. Placing General Patton in control of the refugee camps at New Albany and Grand Gulf, Mississippi, the president trusted that the "Hero of the Bermuda Hundred" would provide for the food, clothing and shelter of over 650,000 misplaced southrons. General Patton was handed a terrible situation and his nation did not have the funds to support the refugee camps. "New Albany" and "Grand Gulf" became synonymous with "filth" and "starvation." Secretary of War Theophilius Holmes III ignored complaints from Patton leading newspaper to attack "Holmesism." By 1955 President Russell was forced to shut down both camps and trust local governments to care for the Virginia and Kentucky refugees.

Moving the capital of the Confederacy to Montgomery, Alabama, was also an issue due to the fact that placing a capital city is an affair ripe with corruption. President Russell allowed for several unscrupulous construction firms to pocket millions while doing little in terms of building infrastructure in the tired Alabama town. When the government finally moved to Montgomery in January 1954 the Congress of the Confederacy was meeting in the Evander Law Hotel and President Russell was the guest of Confederate industrialist Wallace C. Whitney. The CSA was humiliated yet again in the eyes of the world.  

By 1956 the Southern economy was stagnant and the people were angry. The city of Atlanta was paralyzed by a three month railway strike that left the Southeast Railway in ruins and the Deep South states in an economic limbo. Under the shade of the strike the Sovereignty Party met in Savannah, Georgia, to nominate a candidate for president. The convention started two weeks late due to the lack of railway use. On the first ballot former Texas Governor Coke R. Stevens was nominated for president with former Tarheels head football coach George T. Barclay as his running-mate. Barclay led the Tarheels to victory in five straight Dixie Bowls from 1950-1955 and also served as a captain of artillery on the Helena line during the U.S.-C.S.A War.

The Populist Party, seeming both victory and a chance for real social reform, met in Memphis to nominate former Mississippi Congressman and writer William Faulkner for president and Texas State Attorney General Tom C. Clark for vice-president. The Populist Party Platform promised to "continue the spirit of Presidents Wilson and Long", clean up the stench of Holmesism and rebuild the Confederate economy though reinvestment in education and job training skills with a focus on Appalachian residents and African-Americans.

The call for reform and peace set out by the great writer Faulkner was far better received than the stiff "hold the line" slogans of Governor Stevenson. "Let us reason together" was Faulkner's slogan and he acted on it by touring not just the Confederate states in his campaign but also speaking in the occupied states of Kentucky and Virginia. Faulkner won a comfortable victory over Stevenson, who campaigned in a forceful way and effectively used television ads for the first time in Confederate political history.

Promising a progressive reconstruction of the south President Faulkner was sworn in on the Bible of Stonewall Jackson.

Faulkner would become known less for his policies and more for his eccentricities. His rambling, stream of consciousness addresses to the Senate and to the Confederate people would become a trademark, noted somewhat humorously throughout the history books. As well, rumor often escaped the capital of the President's heavy drinking. Despite personal popularity, some of Falukner's policies, including complete integration, were unpopular. Nevertheless, he was a proud Confederate, and his speeches and foreign policy approach drew on pride for his country's traditions and culture.

1962
Ignited by the debate over integration, former Vice President-turned-Senator Strom Thurmond jumped into the race for the Presidency. On the side for the Populists, meanwhile, Senator Russell Long of Louisiana, son of the late President, was nominated. With Thurmond waging an aggressive campaign, Long instead chose the path of merely defending Faulkner's record, and more importantly, bringing up his father's legacy.

Senator Russell B. Long (P-LA)/Governor Terry Sanford (P-NC) 64 electoral votes
Senator J. Strom Thurmond (S-SC)/Senator John Tower (S-TX) 52 electoral votes

1968

Senator Lyndon Johnson (P-TX)/Senator Robert Byrd (P-NC)-85 EV, 52.4% of the popular vote.
Former Governor George Wallace (S-AL)/Governor Orval Faubus (S-AR)-43 EV, 47.3% of the popular vote.
Other (Socialist, Communist, Prohibition)-0.3% of the popular vote.

President Faulkner and Long strongly pushed reforms in the Civil Rights sector, but it was the election of 1968 that was the pinnacle of the civil rights movement in the Confederacy. The African Confederates had been emancipated under Wilson (though slavery had been abolished in every state except Georgia and Alabama by that point) had yet to gain the right to vote. Johnson campaigned on voting rights, continuation of “Dixiecare” (a federal healthcare insurance company founded by the Faulkner administration), and a federally administered system of highways. The election was close in many states, but Johnson triumphed with a comfortable majority in the end.

1974



Governor George Wallace (S-AL)/Senator John Connally (S-TX): 117: 54.5%
President Robert Byrd (P-NC)/Governor Dale Bumpers (P-AR): 13: 43.8%

The election of 1974 was disastrous for the Progressives. President Johnson had been assasinated on a visit to Birmingham Alabama on June 7th 1973. His successor, Robert Byrd had the misfortune to be presiding over a weak economy, rising crime and high unemployment. The Oil Shock of 1973 compounded his problems, and by mid 1974, His popularity rating stood at just 31%. The Sovereignty Party meanwhile renominated George Wallace and Senator John Connally of Texas. They fought a populist campaign, promising lower taxes, a crackdown on crime, and an end to the busing begun by Johnson. Byrd was no match and was heavily defeated.

1980

Vice President John Connally (S-TX)/Senator Jesse Helms (S-NC)-83 EV, 53.1% of the popular vote.
Governor Reubin Askew (P-FL)/Former Senator Martin Luther King (P-GA)-47 EV, 45.0% of the popular vote.
Mr. William Luther Pierce (NA-GA)/State Senator David Duke (NA-LA)-1.4% of the popular vote.
Others (Heritage, Socialist, Prohibition)-0.5% of the popular vote.

President Wallace remains popular throughout his term. He devolves Dixiecare back to the states, and cracks down on illegal immigrants, particularly Mexicans in Texas and Haitians in Florida. He cuts taxes, but fails to cut spending, leading to a serious deficit. Despite his promises to overturn African voting rights during the campaign, he fails to take action, to the relief of several African Confederates. The late 70’s depression fails to hit the South hard, and Vice President Connally cruises to victory over Florida Governor Askew, who made history when he picked the first ever African Senator, Martin Luther King, as his running mate. As a result, several leading white nationalists formed the National Alliance Party.

1986



Vice-President Jesse Helms (S-NC)/Senator John Warner (S-VA): 138 EV: 60.3% of the popular vote
Former Senator Martin Luther King (P-GA)/Governor Bill Clinton (P-AR): 0 EV: 36.4% of the popular vote
Senator David Duke (NA-LA)/Different candidates in different states: 0 EV: 2.4%

President Connally enjoyed a successful term, with the economy continuing to grow, he also made spending cuts that began to close the deficit. The Populist nomination was hard fought between ex-senator Martin Luther King, and Senator Sam Nunn. King eventually won, but only after a bitter and exceedingly close primary season. The sovereignty party nominated Vice-President Jesse Helms and moderate Senator John Warner. The general election was noted for its brutality. Helms lambasted the Populists as a "communist sell-out, welfare queen, drug users fantasy". A series of negative ads, devised by strategist Lee Atwater, attacked King for apparent lapses in his private life, as well as allegations of drug abuse. He was also attacked for his apparent softness of communism. King was massively rejected at the polls, with Helms sweeping every state in a landslide win.

1990



Fmr. Vice-President John Warner (I-VA)/businessman H. Ross Perot (I-TX): 79 EV; 32.5% of the popular vote
Secretary Marian "Pat" Robertson (S-VA)/film producer Fred Thompson (S-TN): 47 EV; 28.3% of the popular vote
Fmr. Governor Bob Graham (P-FL)/Senator Andrew Young (P-GA): 12 EV; 22.4% of the popular vote
Fmr. Governor George L. Rockwell (NA-VA)/fmr. green beret Bo Gritz (NA-FL): 0 EV; 10.2% of the popular vote
Fmr. Senator Martin L. King, Jr. (Jus-GA)/Congressman Medger Evers (Jus-MS): 0 EV; 6.5% of the popular vote
Others (Reform, National Unity, Industrial Government, etc): 0 EV; 0.1% of the popular vote

"Strike them with terror, O LORD; let the nations know they are but men!" President Jesse Helms stated in his inaugural address. This quote from Psalms 9:20, pointed to be biblical scholars as one of the "psalms of vengeance", set the tone for the Helms Administration. While Presidents Faulkner, Long. Johnson and Wallace had aimed to improve foreign affairs with the United States through trade reciprocity and open currency exchange these peace overtures were not supported by President Helms.

The Helms Administration focused strongly on foreign policies. Secretary of State Marian Robertson, a former Confederate Marine Corp colonel and Christian missionary, declared in his "Provocative Weakness" address that the CSA would increase military spending and "no longer allow our neighbor to the North to dictate foreign policy in the Confederate sphere of influence." CSA military forces intervened in Panama in support of Colonel Manuel Noriega, whose anti-U.S. foreign policy allowed for Confederate filibusterers to attack U.S. and British ships, make quick money in the raids and hide in Panama. This Panama policy was given tacit approval since the 1860s but President Helms took the support to an entirely new level when he sent Colonel Oliver North and 300 CSA marines to defend Noriega against U.S. intervention. When President Gary Hart of the United States met with President Helms in Mexico City during the 12th Council of the Americas he warned Helms that if he did not remove marines from Panama he would advise the League of American Republics to establish sanctions on CSA oil exports. Helms responded to this threat by quoting Psalms 101:5: "Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer."

The Panama War Scare of 1987 became the major foreign policy blunder of the Helms Administration. Marines under General Maxwell Thurman opened fire on U.S. "peace keeping" troops led by Lt. Colonel Ray Odierno. The minor conflict led both nations to call for war. However, money decided against guns due to the fact that Federal Reserves Chair Paul Volker had made the CSA the number one purchaser of U.S. bonds. "A war with the CSA would sink our dollar," Volker tells President Hart and a peaceful resolution comes of the war scare. Colonel Noriega is allowed to resign his position as leader of Panama and seek political asylum in Florida. A pro-CSA leader is installed in Panama City who also has the support of the government in Washington, D.C.

By 1988 the Confederate States of America was growing economically due to expanding oil futures and the growing tourism industry. However, the lack of civil rights for African-Confederates and the issue of increased illegal immigration lead to major riots in Richmond, Atlanta and Dallas. President Helms declares a state of martial law in the CSA in the summer of 1989 to respond to riots throughout the Deep South. While members of the nearly dead Progressive Party claim that a strong civil rights law would end the crisis President Helms ignores this idea. He instead okays a national "crack down" on left-wing groups, arrests former presidential candidate Martin Luther King, Junior, spies on Progressive Party leader in Congress Julian Bond of Georgia and quotes Psalm 89:14: "Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face."

The 1990 Confederate presidential election was one of the most colorful and controversial campaigns in the nation's history. President Helms contemplated postponing the election due to the "national crisis" but was told by Senate Majority Leader Strom Thurmond that if he tried to do this he would be removed from office. Vice-President John Warner, who resigned from office in 1989 in opposition to the martial law declaration, announced an independent campaign for president in 1990 with Texas businessman H. Ross Perot as his running-mate. The Warner/Perot campaign slogan was, "Common sense is not so common." This was a thinly veiled attack on President Helms's frequent usage of the statement, "It's just common sense."

The Sovereignty Party divided over the Helms legacy. Secretary of State Robertson ran for the party's presidential nod as a true believer in Helms and the psalms. Governor Carol Campbell of South Carolina opposed Robertson as the anti-Helms choice. Secretary Robertson won the nomination of the Sovereignty Party on the first ballot and was paired with Havana Films CEO Fred Dalton Thompson of Tennessee as his running-mate. Thompson, a career actor and producer, had recently won fame with the smash hit film "Glory" which told the story of Patrick Cleburne, the Confederate officer who introduced the idea of enlisting African-American soldiers in the Confederate Army and led these soldiers to glory at the Battle of Franklin.

The Progressive Party was still reeling from their total loss in 1984 and in the midterm elections in 1987. Their convention in Birmingham, Alabama, attracted less than 3,000 spectators. Former Governor Bob Graham of Florida accepted the presidential nomination and was pared with Georgia Senator Andrew Young. Former Senator Martin Luther King, Junior, sough the party's nomination from his jail cell also in Birmingham. His "Letter from a Birmingham Jail" to the convention was applauded by the most left-wing of the party members due to it's call for racial and social justice in the CSA. Progressive delegates enraged by the nomination of Bob Graham left the convention and formed a new left-winged party: the Justice Party. Running under the slogan "The arc of history bends towards justice" they established a social democratic platform that called for racial equality and nominated Senator King for president with Mississippi Congressman Medger Evers as his running-mate.

As if there were not enough candidates in the race already the far-right wing National Alliance Party convened in Chancellorsville, Virginia, and called former Virgina Governor George Lincoln Rockwell out of the wilderness to serve as their party's presidential nominee. Governor Rockwell served as the governor of Virginia from 1966 to 1970 and made a name for himself by praising the fascist governments of Franco in Spain and Peron in Argentina. He had tried to make several political comebacks but his flirtations with fascism had ruined his dreams of further office. The National Alliance Party nominated the colorful former vaudeville performer in hopes of garnering attention. By paring him with former Confederate green beret and conspiracy theorist Bo Gritz the party hoped that it could make a name for itself by, to quote Rockwell, "Tweaking the noses of the Yankee liberal establishment."

The campaign trail of 1990 was filled with negative attacks and over the top oratory. Governor Rockwell trailed Governor Graham to speaking engagements and heckled the governor as he tried to speak. The campaign broke down to Vice-President Warner and Secretary Robertson as no other candidate had the money or organization to win the race. Warner attacked Robertson as the "candidate of martial law, maniacal warmongering and psalms." The former veep promised the people of the Confederacy that if elected he would end martial law, restore order to the cities and pass a comprehensive civil rights law that would be fair to all. Robertson attacked Warner as a "traitor to the confederacy" for resigning from the vice-presidency anc campaigner against the president he was elected on a ticket with.

In the end the voters decided against psalm quoting and voted in the independent team of John Warner and Ross Perot by a narrow margin. John Warner promised that he would "reset" U.S.-C.S. relations and restore "sanity" to the highest post in the Confederacy. True to form, President Helms quoted Psalm 82:3 in his farewell address:"My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him."

Senator Al Gore (P-TE)/Former Governor Bill Clinton (P-AR)-33 EV, 19.1% of the popular vote.
Former Congressman David Duke (NA-LA)/Mr. Eric Rudolph (NA-FL)-5.8% of the popular vote.
Congressman Medger Evers (Jus-MS)/Agriculture Commissioner Jim Hightower (Jus-TX)-4.6% of the popular vote.
Mr. Howard Phillips (C-VA)/Mr. Albion Knight (C-FL)-1.0% of the popular vote.

President Warner’s term is a stark contrast to Helms administration. In his term, he orders the prosecution of the Panama filibusterers as well as former President Helms himself, who was later sentenced to seven years in prison for illegally ordering the wiretapping of private citizens and the unconstitutional detainment of Martin Luther King. The Warner administration also reformed the military, and was able to remove the influence of several South American drug cartels over CS military by dismissing several corrupted officers from its rank.

Vice President Perot declared he would seek the Presidency as an independent, refusing to accept the nominations of several minor parties as it would “defeat the purpose” of the Warner administration. He asked moderate former Tennessee Governor Lamar Alexander, formally of the Sovereignty Party, was tapped as his running mate.

The Sovereignty Party nominated Governor Carroll Campbell, the anti Robertson candidate in 1990, as their nominee to recover their tarnished post Helms reputation. Senator Phil Gramm was nominated as his running mate.

The Populist Party nominated Senator Al Gore, and Governor Bill Clinton as their ticket. The platform was criticized by the left as “watered down”, and its foreign policy positions were much more hawkish then before. The Populist Party, once the left wing party of Long, Faulkner, and Johnson, was now a centrist “Third Way” organization.

The National Alliance Party nominated one of their founding members, and their first ever nominee, David Duke. He asked the controversial firebrand activist Eric Rudolph as his running mate. The National Alliance campaigned not on a platform of White supremacy, but on one advocating conspiracy theories about the extent of the Confederacies federal governments’ power. They were able to take a large amount of the far rights vote.

The Justice Party nominated Medger Evers, and Jim Hightower of Texas. The party’s platform was modeled after its larger (albeit equally as unsuccessful) Progressive counterpart in the United States. The party was quickly able to establish itself as the main leftwing party in the CSA, as the Populist Party was beginning to move towards the ideology known as the “Third Way”.

1996 also saw the rise of another right wing party-the Christian Party. Running on a noninterventionist, protectionist, and social conservative platform, it was able to co-opt those on the right who were against the Sovereignty Party and the National Alliance. They nominated activists Howard Phillips and Albion Knight as their ticket.

The race was not as close predicted. With a strong money advantage, Perot was easily able to pull ahead of his opponents, spending millions on televised ads. He also was able to build up a base of centrists from every party, and was able to bring in Lee Atwater, the most feared politico in Dixie, as his campaign manager. Perot won Arkansas, and thus the election, after former Governor Clintons sexual affairs (including an alleged incident with US Congresswoman Hillary Rodham of Illinois which was never proven) as well as a controversial real estate venture that became known as “Whitewatergate”.

2004



Governor Mike Huckabee (S-AR)/Governor Rick Perry (S-TX): 87: 40.8% of the popular vote
Vice-President Lamar Alexander (R-TN)/Governor Mark Warner (R-VA): 66: 38.8% of the popular vote
Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. (P-SC)/Representative John Lewis (P-GA): 0: 13.3% of the popular vote
Reverand Chuck Baldwin (C-FL)/Ezola Foster (C-LA): 0: 5.5% of the popular vote

The election of 2004 was a nail biting contest.

The Perot administration had become entangled in a foreign war, when in November 2000, the Special Forces had been sent into Mexico to try and take out the drug smuggling cartels that were causing dreadful trouble for the C.S.A Government. However, the drug smugglers struck back with raids against the C.S border, and the Mexican government had protested in the United Nations.

President Perot was unmoved, and obtained backing from the United States in what he called the "War on Terror". The Army was moved in across the border in September 2001, with dubious and belated backing from the Mexican Government.

However it proved an elusive task trying to flush out the cartels, and a motion to condemn the CSA was passed in the United Nations. With the economy also encountering difficulties, it seemed that the long run of Independent success was coming to an end. The new Sovereingty Speaker, Newt Gingrich, worked to stymie Perot, whose ratings were in freefall by the end of 2003 due to the mounting death toll in Mexico.

In late 2003, Perot also drew together supporters of the administration, and decided to create a new party to try and ensure his ideals lived on. The Reform Party nominated Vice-President Alexander in early 2004. Alexander chose the moderate Independent Governor of Virginia Mark Warner for his VP pick

By now the Sovereignty Party was once more full of life. After riding a wave of popularity to claim the Sovereignty nomination, Governor Mike Huckabee promised to "return power to the people" by shrinking government. He also pledged to reduce the length of the Presidential term from 6 to 4 years. He ran under the slogan, "Conservatism with Compassion". The slogan "I like Mike" also became popular.

The Populists continued their decay, having moved further to the left after the relative lack of success of their third way strategy in 1998. They ran on a strongly left wing platform, proposing a federal amendment banning the death penalty, immediate withdrawal from Mexico, the introduction of a 80% tax on profits of over $250,000, and increasing the scope of affirmative action.

The National Alliance failed to get on the ballot in most states, and would in the end only win 0.7% of the vote. However the Christian Party experienced a high uptick in support.

The campaign was close, with Huckabee and Perry being attacked as right-wing extremists by Alexander, who would be an embarresment to the international image of the Confederacy. Several gaffes by Perry on the campaign trail also helped narrow polling figures. However, Huckabee in the end managed to win the election, with the deciding state being Georgia, which he only won by 39.0% to 37.9% for the Reform Party. The election proved yet another disaster for the Populists, who were reduced to only 13% of the popular vote, as many moderates flocked to the Reform Party.

Guys, we're ahead two years. 1998 should be '96 and '04 should be '02.

Just went through the math. It was 1990 that got screwed up. My bad.
