1960

Republican Governor Tom Cranberry of Oregon, a progressive within a party trending rightward, nevertheless manages to secure the Republican nomination with the aid of the party's eastern establishment. To balance out the ticket, he is joined by conservative Iowa Governor Richard Roberts.

Democratic Senator (and Senate Majority Leader) Brian Gates of Texas likewise wins the Democratic nomination on a moderate liberal platform, emphasizing his promise to "keep Washington working for the common man," emphasizing his record as Senate Majority Leader as proof of his acumen for compromise. His running mate is Tennessee Senator Maxwell, a noted Democratic conservative and non-interventionist.



Governor Tom Cranberry (R-OR) / Governor Richard Roberts (R-IA): 54.55% (389)
Senate Majority Leader Brian Gates (D-TX) / Senator Max Wellington (D-TN): 44.72% (148)

The election between Senators Terrance Nelson Fitzgerald of the Workers' Party and Barry Goldwater III of the Owners' Party offered one of the sharpest contrasts in the history of American Presidential elections. Extending beyond economics, the ideological gulf between the two candidates manifested itself in foreign policy as well, with Senator Goldwater arguing the America must take an interventionist role in world affairs if it is to promote its own economic interests, as well as the interests of human rights. Senator TNF, on the other hand, decried practically all military intervention as imperialism, going so far as to use the slogan "No War but the Class War". Even on social issues, where the two candidates more or less agreed in practice, there was a substantial difference in approach: Senator Goldwater embraced bourgeois liberal morality, while Senator TNF argued that social policy must be subordinate to economic policy. 

In the end, a significant number of voters felt that they were not represented by either candidate, contributing to the map that you see below:



Senator Barry Goldwater III: 249 Electoral Votes
Senator Terrance Nelson Fitzgerald: 249 Electoral Votes
NOTA: 40 Electoral Votes

As you can see, each candidate received exactly the same number of votes in the Electoral College. Since neither had a majority, the election is thrown to the House of Representatives. What happens now is anyone's guess...

Senator Matthew O Politico from Missouri recieves the Democratic nomination with his promise of "cross-party, non-partisan work on what's best for America!". He goes on to choose the Southern and relatively centrist Democrat Miles Landrieu as running mate. The Republicans in turn also nominate a moderate ticket, with Ronald Raynolds of Iowa and Thomas Rockefeller of Maine on the ballot. The election sees little controversy and low turnout, and is narrowly won by Politico by delievering his home state to the Democrats.



Matthew O Politico (D-MO) / Miles Landrieu (D-LA) - 272 EV's - 49.73%
Ronald Raynolds (R-IA) / Thomas Rockefeller (R-ME) - 266 EV's - 48.95%

1896 - Cranberry narrowly defeats Falkenthal



Senator Charles Cranberry (R-ME)/Governor Alfred F. Jones (R-NY) - 49.8%, 251 EV's
Senator Theodore N. Falkenthal (D-KY)/Congressman Henry Fly (D-MN) - 47.9%, 196 EV's

President Grover Cleveland ended his presidency in recession, and so both parties were looking to distance themselves from his administration. The Republicans opposed his policies vehemently, nominating old Republican moneybundler Charles Cranberry, who picked reform governor Alfred F. Jones for his Vice President.

Old frontrunners from the Democratic party left in fear when Teddy Falkenthal, a one term Senator from Kentucky, spoke at the convention with such flair that the convention floor put him in the nomination in a landslide. He picked academic Henry Fly, who agreed with his position on war and economics, but held the south together (who feared Falkenthal's civil rights record would doom the Democrats).

Falkenthal's grassroots organization did its best, but couldn't compete with being outspent 10-1. Cranberry won election narrowly.

The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.

2008 Presidential Election

Goldwater/Mitch Daniels: 239 (46.3% of the popular vote)
Windjammer/Chuck Schumer: 299 (50.1% of the popular vote)

Outgoing president George W. Bush will leave office as one of the most unpopular in history, following an economic downturn. While the election always leaned Democratic, it is surprising the margin tightened in the last two weeks. Windjammer, an establishment Democrat who is somewhat of a social conservative, upset and defeated Barack Obama in the primaries. Many progressive liberals were unhappy, but many still voted for him. Goldwater is a libertarian-leaning Republican who ran on a very fiscally conservative platform, de-emphasizing any social issues, and a strong America abroad.

With the result, Goldwater had unparamount strength in the West (especially) and Great Plains, even carrying Oregon and his home state of Washington by a stunning 8 points, while only losing California by 7. However, Windjammer did have unusually good strength in the south, especially the southeast, where he historically and stunningly won SC by less than 1%. He won West Virginia by 6 points, and lost Kentucky and Arkansas by similar margins. While many New Englanders weren't happy with Windjammer, they still picked him pretty overwhelmingly. Overall, it was a wash of regional over performances and under performances. Windjammer's win can be attributed to Goldwater's under-investment in southeastern states, like Georgia, Virginia, and Florida.

Ultimately this was a battle between who could out-libertarian who for a long-time....until foreign policy came to head. Non-interventionist ElectionsGuy claimed that the country had been through too many wars and that too many civil liberties had been quashed  in pursuit of winning "the war of the week". Goldwater much like his namesake wanted terrorists fought at all costs,lest they win and no one to help the country in the end.

Naturally this meant that traditionally social liberal or very rural states and areas favored ElectionsGuy, while places with more infrastructure that sought to benefit from anything to protect international trade or had heavy military presence favored Goldwater.

Ultimately Goldwater came through by a "law-and-order" theme where foreign policy is concerned.
