-First of all, There is no chance that the EV number by state would be exactly the same. Congressional seats and therefore Electoral Votes are reapportioned every ten years as a result of the census.

-Also, someone being elected for seven terms is not realistic. Even in the very unlikely case of the 22nd amendment being repealed, as you described, nobody could maintain that much support for more than 25 years.

This is not meant to criticise you, though. I just kind of get annoyed at tiny little things like that. It is a good timeline, in general. Smiley

1. I know, I just don't have the time or patience to fix EV's every time it needs to be done. Tongue

2. It was because of the war, without it she wouldn't have been elected that much. Kinda like FDR. But I know, it's kinda out there.

3. Thanks! Smiley

2089

As President Nguyen is inaugurated in for his second term President Schmidt is making great progress in Nigeria. Having caught them with their pants down he is able drive within a mile of the capital of Abuja. Back in the U.S. President Nguyen is ripping his foreign policy advisors heads off at Schmidt’s advances.

By this time Canada, or rather all that is left of it being Ontario, is completely bankrupt and failing as a country. Liberal Prime Minster Tyler Morgan petitions the U.S. for annexation and President Nguyen, though against the idea but seeing how former Canadian provinces have voted recently supports annexation as well as Congress. The new state of Ontario is slated to join the union on July 1st with 21 EVs.

By late spring President Schmidt has conquered and annexed Nigeria. He begins modernization as soon as the bullets stop flying. The next morning Schmidt receives a phone call from President Nguyen telling him to stop before the U.S. forces him to. He calls his bluff by launching another night attack but at Cameroon this time.

President Nguyen goes to the EU in September and goes into negotiations with them to get a force together to stop President Schmidt in Africa. (By this time the EU has grown in include Iceland, Switzerland, Norway, Croatia, Kosovo, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia, Serbia, Moldova, Belarus and the Ukraine). President Nguyen is told flat out that the EU has adopted a stance of neutrality to most foreign wars after what happened in WWIII but they would be willing to provide non-military aid. President Nguyen leaves thoroughly pissed at the lack of support.

By years end President Schmidt has also conquered and annexed Cameroon and begins to consolidate a little while continuing to recruit discharged foreign Special Forces.

2090

After many years of negotiation the Middle Eastern Republic is finally able to annex Eritrea and are finally able to have a fully contiguous country. President Nguyen makes an early cross country trip campaigning for Democratic incumbents before returning to Washington as he says he won’t be able to do it later in the year.

As spring ends President Schmidt begins his next move as he swiftly seizes and annexes Equatorial Guinea and moves his army into Gabon. After a month of heavy fighting the country is also conquered and annexed having been unprepared for war.

President Schmidt petitions the EU for non-military aid which they grant. Infuriated President Nguyen blasts the EU for its decision though they rebuff him saying they never said the U.S. would be the only country to receive non-military aid.

In the mid terms Republicans make some gains out west. It is theorized by pundits that if President Nguyen had campaigned during the actual campaign season he could have helped stem some of the losses.

2091

With a slightly decreased margin in Congress President Nguyen gets a large increase in stem cell research passed. The science has come up with some great advances lately that have helped many people so it passes with mostly bi-partisan support. President Nguyen also is able to get massive tracts of land in Canada declared as national preserves as well as twists enough arms to get an anti-whaling bill passed that prevents Native Americans from traditional whaling as well as lets the U.S. Navy forcibly stop any foreign vessels that are whaling.

President Schmidt makes his next move in June as he invades the Republic of the Congo which is also unprepared for war. Before too much damage is done however the Republic of the Congo has surrendered and allowed themselves to be annexed for the good of its people.

Concerned for what is happening to their south the MER meets with President Schmidt’s Liberia about what his plans are. Schmidt fully discloses what he plans while the MER’s President is greatly intrigued and promises to keep what he has found out a secret as well as to supply Schmidt with aid (military and non-military) to help him achieve his plan faster.

President Nguyen makes another trip to Asia and amid the rebuilding happening in Shanghai declares that he will seek a third term as President and continue to be a President of the World. Being Asian himself he gets thunderous applause before he heads back to the U.S.

2092

On New Year’s Day President Schmidt meets with the President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and tells him he’s the last piece of his African puzzle that he needs and he can either allow his country to be annexed peacefully to have a drawn out war that will not be good for either side. The DROTC’s President chooses to fight to the horror of President Schmidt. Not being prepared to fight right away however he begins to reequip and rearm his army while defensive positions begin to be built across the border.

As a late entry on the Republican side 103 year old Governor of Oregon and former Republican Presidential candidate for President in 2024 Steven Wilmont announces his candidacy for President. Having been a Republican stalwart and their strongest leader he immediately shoots to the top in the polls. He is able to cement this with quick wins in the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary which allows him to easily rap up the nomination. He chooses young Governor of Washington Jack Young for VP.

President Nguyen treats this announcement as a joke because of his opponent’s age and sticks to a light campaign schedule like he did 4 years ago. The debates are mostly a split with President Nguyen winning the first, the second being a tie and Governor Wilmont winning the third. Each candidate is about even with campaign financing until late July when President Schmidt gives a massive donation to the Wilmont campaign as he continues to bide his time in Africa.

On election night:




Steven Wilmont/Jack Young (R): 320
Peter Nguyen/Ralph Reid (D): 310


Governor Wilmont is able to win by peeling a part of the Northwest to his side while keeping all of Morrison’s states from four years earlier, even with Ontario joining the union. President-Wilmont will also be the oldest President as well as the oldest President elected to the office.

2093

President Wilmont is inaugurated and promises to fight for conservative ideals and take a much more active in world affairs. He immediately contacts President Schmidt and lets him know he’ll be dispatching the U.S. army to help him take over the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Detachments begin leaving in early February.

In March on a trip to Florida Jack Young is killed in a jet skiing accident. The nation morns the VP as President Wilmont makes a shocking pick as a replacement, former President Peter Nguyen. The pick is easily confirmed by the Democratic Congress. During the confirmation process President Nguyen speaks out against the U.S. troops being sent to the DROTC but in his first private meeting with President Wilmont he’s threatened with death if he publically speaks out against it again and is made to work for it behind the scenes.

By mid-March all U.S. troops needed are in place as the joint army makes its move into the DROTC. The army moves into the jungles easily enough and with the training of the U.S. forces is able to make short work of any resistance they encounter. Very early on the capital city is taken as the army moves into the jungle but those forces are taken out rather easily as well. By the end of the month the country is annexed by Liberia and most U.S. forces return home while some are left behind to help in peace keeping operations.

President Schmidt makes his first trip back to the U.S. in May and meets with President Wilmont, VP Nguyen and Republican leaders and finally tells them his plans for Africa. He plans to have Africa brought into the U.S. as territories as he continues to modernize and improve the region before they eventually become states. President Wilmot and the Republican leaders agree to help push this through Congress. VP Nguyen is not happy but is again threatened and says he will comply as well.

Shortly after President Schmidt makes an appearance before a joint session of Congress with President Wilmont and announces the decision as Harry Morrison introduces a bill into the Senate to make this happen. This announcement brings hell to the capitol as debate rages. President Wilmont is able to get all Republicans to agree to support it and with the unwilling support of VP Nguyen he convinces enough Democrats to support it as well. The bill passes Congress by the end of the year and brings in Africa as the territories of: Senegambia (combination of Senegal and Gambia), Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Togo, Benin, Nigeria, Cameroon, Gabon (which includes Equatorial Guinea), West Congo (which includes the former Republic of Congo and the provinces of Kinshasa, Kongo Central, Kwango, Kwilu, Mai-Ndombe, Kasai, Equateur, Tshuapa, Nord-Ubangi, Mongala and Sud-Ubangi from the old DROTC as well as the province of Cabinda which is purchased from Angola) and East Congo (which is made up of the rest of the provinces from the old DROTC).

2094

On January 1st the nation of Liberia enters the U.S. as the before mentioned territories. President Schmidt officially becomes the Governor of Liberia as he continues to work with the development of the new provinces.

President Wilmont despite his age is very healthy and still active and makes a trip to the new territories, starting in the north and ending in the south. He talks to many different people and in front of huge crowds as he begins to build up the Republican Party’s image through the region.

On his return to Washington he makes more visits to the plains states and much of former Canada and talks to people telling them how they used to support Republican candidates and that they should again do so. Finally done with his trips he returns to Washington again and gets through a massive spending bill to further the African modernization.

All of Europe decides to formally break away from helping the U.S. in space and to pool their efforts in the newly formed European Aeronautics and Space Administration under the EU. They announce they plan to put their own man on the moon within the next 6 years and begin to make build their own bases on the moon. The U.S. announces that they will help the EU in space exploration but that they will make sure that no bases besides those they control will be built on the moon.

President Wilmont goes before Congress and gets 5 more moon bases passed. They’ll be the first bases built in over fifty years. They will help the U.S. solidify its control on the moon which is almost becoming like a new U.S. territory. NASA scientists and government officials begin planning an extremely large military and scientific base that will be heavily fortified somewhere on the moon but nothing is decided on at this time.

2095

President Wilmont sets in motion resource mining in Africa modernizing that whole aspect as well as massively expanding oil exports out of the territory of Nigeria. He makes a speech saying that the U.S. needs to maximize its new resources in order to bring the entire country to a stronger and livelier point.

In early March President Wilmont dies peacefully in his sleep at the age of 106. The nation mourns his death as VP Nguyen is swiftly re-inaugurated into his old office. At first he looks at finding a new Vice President but when no one new wants the job he gets Ralph Reid to retake the position.

Upon taking office President Nguyen tries to reverse some of President Wilmot’s African economic policies but they have become too popular within the public and even his own party that he’s talked down. He does take the initiative though and begins building the Democratic Party in Africa.

A small third party begins to form out of many other smaller parties in Africa. Named the Pan-African Party it strives for complete modernization and integration of the African territories into America and speedy statehood. It’s also for putting Africa first until all these objectives are complete. Mbeki Timbo becomes Chairman and leader of the Party at age 50 out of Liberia.

Having been delayed by WWIII the underwater bridge and pipeline spanning the bearing straight is completed by the U.S. and Russian governments. Both countries pass funding for better road systems for the regions where the bridge has been built, linking them to other infrastructure in their respective countries.

Republicans begin talking to conservative leaders in the country about Maritime. They talk about Maritime eventually being annexed by the U.S. since the rest of Canada has already done so and how annexation would help the country. They agree it should happen but it will take a lot of work because of Maritime’s liberal leaders and its booming economy.

2096

As election year dawns President Nguyen announces he’ll be running for re-election with Ralph Reid. They seem to be in a good position to win despite being against intervening in the world.

The Republicans roll into their primary season with a lot of candidates trying to take up the late President Wilmont’s mantle. After a bruising process they settle on California Representative Carson Dobbler for President and Ohio Representative Bradley Morgan for VP.

The campaigns for both parties are relatively boring with President Nguyen campaigning for the status quo and Representative Dobbler calling for the continuation of Wilmont’s legacy. And while this dry campaign is happening the status quo is what is happening around the world. Asia is just getting back on its feet after WWIII and Africa is slowly modernizing with the world being a quiet, sleepy place.

On election night:



Carson Dobbler/Bradley Morgan (R): 298
Peter Nguyen/Ralph Reid (D): 332


The election is an exact copy of the 2088 election. Nguyen is able to win a third term easily without President Wilmont pulling away the northwest.

Well, it depends on how the political trend has run. After all, this is a hundred years into the future, and even in Gore and Kerry's time within this timeline, what would have been the center in American politics could be the Left, and by 2090, the Far-Left. At the same time, an opposite trend could occur. Within their our history, the Republican and Democratic parties have switched almost entirely in their ideology's.

I don't like this one bit. Timelines should be realistic and fun. There is no contradiction there, but in this case realism went out the window for the sake of being different. This is just too redicolous

No, it's just illegal. And there is no death penatly for it either. Just a huge fine and a long time in jail.

You know what, screw you. I randomly thought of this tonight and spent awhile searching through where I knew it was without being signed in and wasted about 10 min not finding it. Tongue

As I've said numerous times, I know this timeline would never happen, it's just interesting what if.

Speaking of this TL, I have had another update done for over a year now. I just have no time to write out the complicated part of Africa to get someone's help to do a map. I should also get this moved over to the main section...

or maybe probation where the offender has to register with some sort of Catholic or Evangelical Christian Reeducation program... like someone who got into trouble with drugs, DUI or Domestic stuff...

Perhaps for a first offender, you would get like 4 or 5 years of Probation and a $900 fine...and you would be subject to the typical prior offender laws (have to register as a felon, get prohibited from voting and put on a FBI "Do Not Carry" watch list...unless you are allowed to take  a First Offender plea)...and as part of the probation, you would have to go to Sunday School and be confirmed into a member of that church  by the time your probation ends or you violate the probation and have to reserve your term of probation in prison and lose your First Offender benefits and become a "Prior Offender".
