An excerpt from Russ Feingold’s Death of a Nation

“…and it was Spring 2020 when things began to spiral out of control. I tried. I truly did. I did not think I had it in me after I lost that election in 2016, but I mustered up the energy to try…and it wasn’t enough.

Bennett’s criticism of my leadership wasn’t what hurt. It was his endorsement of everything we’ve been fighting against. We had been fighting against the dissolution of the Union, and we had been fighting to keep it together even after the tyrannical rule of Sarah Palin, Chuck Landrieu and Carl Xander. Bennett was the first domino to fall, and unfortunately many others heard what he had to say, and it stuck.

The spring of 2020 brought a new round of riots from the food shortages. Rumors were rampant about feasts at the Continental Convention when in reality we were only marginally better off than the rest of the country. The rumors didn’t help. Attrition in the CCA military rose quickly, and there were some communities that were swearing off CCA support. Fontana and Wyland decided that if a community or state rejected CCA forces they would leave. They couldn’t afford another war.

On September 4th, 2020, after months and months of delaying a vote because I knew the outcome –I couldn’t resist anymore. A vote to end the Third Continental Congress came to the floor. The results? 69% voted to end the Congress. Just enough.

Even though the media helped pushed the narrative of the Congress to this ends, the result was devastating to the nation. The last glimmer of hope that was the Congress was evaporated. The CCA quickly dissolved as states began to aggressively assert their own sovereignty. Fontana and Wyland tried their hardest but they quickly moved their own forces back into their respective states boarders as a new war between states loomed for those who meddled in the affairs of others.

Years later, looking back on this, I regret one thing, bringing the motion to end the Third Continental Congress to the floor. It is with that vote that I sealed the death of a nation.

Presidents of the United States

44. Barack H. Obama* - January 20, 2009 - March 15, 2011
45. Joseph R. Biden - March 15, 2011 - January 20, 2013

46. Sarah L. Palin** - January 20, 2013 – June 2, 2017
47. Charles Landrieu – May 11, 2017 - June 2, 2017 – April 1, 2018 or August 8, 2018***
48. Gerard Moran - August 8, 2018 - January 20, 2021****


*First President to be impeached and removed from office.
**Assassinated by agents of Charles Landrieu
*** - Charles Landrieu legally ascended to the Presidency, and therefore is still the President until January 20, 2021 but was executed by Executive General Carl Xander prior to that date.
**** - Moran even though in custody by Xander, was technically President under the United States Constitution


Executive Generals of the United States of America

1.   Carl Xander – April 1, 2018 – January 4, 2019*** (See above)
*Leader of the Armed Forces of America from February 6, 2017 to April 1, 2018


Vice Presidents of the United States

47. Joseph R. Biden - January 20, 2009 - March 15, 2011
Vacant* -  March 15, 2011 - January 20, 2013
48. Tom Corbett - January 20, 2013 – May 10, 2017
Vacant – May 10, 2017 – May 11, 2017
49. Charles Landrieu – May 11, 2017 – June 2, 2017
Vacant – June 2, 2017 – July 4, 2017
50. Gerald Moran – July 4, 2017 –August 8, 2018**

* - If Biden appointed a Vice President or not is not specified in Death of a Nation by Blackwater Nik/Psychic Octopus. Leaving it vacant fits in with the timeline neatly.
** - Technically still Vice President, legally questionable in the first place, also in the custody of Xander

Losing Tickets for President of the United States of America

2012 - Hillary R. Clinton/Mark Warner
2016 - Russ Feingold/John Boehner

Stop posting. Just stop. Entirely. In your brief sojourn here you have yet to post a single not trollish semi-lucid thought. Ever.

You are an utter waste of bandwidth. Go away. DIAF. Disappear. Begone. Go.

I wonder what the world and country be like by 2100? Was the territories of the US eventually assimilated into new colonial powers?

Final map?

Not making a final map, but it would be states or subdivisions of the states as independent nations. Later down the line, I'd probably say there would be one hegemon in each region of the former US and many small buffer nations.

So America probably goes the way of Europe in the next several centuries? Maybe there is someone who is ambitious enough to cobble up a unified America in the future like in the Liebowicz series and perhaps California and New York remain as powerful rump nations, kind of like the Byzantiums of the 3rd Millenium AD.

America in 2045

Red- New California Republic (also has the Cour D'elene and Tuscon corridor, which is disputed with ASA and RLDS.
Blue- The Republican of the Latter Day Saints
Grey- American State of Arizona , Republic of Wyoming
Blue- The Commonwealth of New York (CNY)
Green- Vermont and Maine (To Canada)
Red- Rock Island Republic
Green- Republic of Texas (Green)
Grey- American State of Florida
Red- The Confederate States of America

Kansas, Missouri Kentucky and West Viriginia are basically run by various large estate holders that do the bidding of the more organized territories around them. St Louis is a self-governing City-States and various academic communities are independent.

There is also a Kingdom of Hawaii and Canada has joined Alaska and Canada is also beginning to expand into Eastern Siberia and into the North Atlantic.

I appreciate your interest and support, but I don't support fan-fiction on the same thread as mine Smiley

Sorry if I offended you in anyway, but that could be a good story.

Thanks for bumping haha, did you like it?


SPOILER: After rereading, I do like how well I incorporated the title into the end of the story...and into the main narrator's own storyline.
