War for America - An (Alternate) 2016 Election Game

Summary: Based off my surprisingly smash hit of a Timeline "A New Blue Dog for America's Health" (Here: https://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=281052.0), it is the year 2015 and the impressive Presidency of Phil Bredesen has gone by Eventfully and now he is no Longer eligible to run for Office, With both parties hoping to get their own Candidate in the White House.

For the Democrats, currently, with the current President not being allowed to run for another term. With the Vice President, SOS, SOT, and Senator Bernie Sanders taking prominent roles in the Leadership of the party, it seems that the party may have to discover new leadership. With this in mind, the new leader does certainly look to be an establishment Candidate from either the Administration or Congress.

For the Republicans, after two big landslide defeats, they are completely shattered with both outsiders and Establishment Candidates vying for control for the party. With the GOP totally divided, anyone could become the Nominee. The question is, will they be able to re-unite a destroyed party.

With both parties getting ready for war, could a Third Party be able to sneak through and win?

(Things that happen in this game might be retconned in the TL, but everything that happens here will be it's own separate timeline from the TL once it starts)

I'll be taking from the rules and format of the 2012 Election Game but I'll sprinkle in some of my own as well.

My own rules: Turns are 72 Hours long with an additional 24 hours if needed.

Games starts in September of 2015

Endorsements can help boost poll performances somewhat better.

I hope to have this game start by Monday and here are the potential candidates:

Current Democratic Candidates:
Vice President Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) [MyCool]
Missouri SOS Jason Kander (D-MO) [loganzombieoftime]
Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) [JasonHitchcock]

Potential Democratic Candidates:

Secretary of State Al Gore (D-TN)
Secretary of Treasury Donald Trump (D-NY)
Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT)
Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY)

Among others




Current Republican Candidates:
Former Governor Jeb Bush (R-FL) [NOTTYLER]
Former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) [MycroftCZ]
Mr. Ben Shapiro (R-CA) [x-guy]
Carly Fiorina (R-CA) [Terp40hitch]
Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) [History505]

Potential Republican Candidates:

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)
Governor Marco Rubio (R-FL)
Senator Dwayne Johnson (R-FL)
Governor John Kasich (R-OH)
Former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK)
Gov. Mike Pence (R-IN)
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY)

Among Others




Current Third Party Candidates (2 allowed at the most)

John Bachtell (I-OH) [Jaguar4Life]

I can run two games at once since they both happen at different intervals.

Governor Jeb Bush Announcement Speech

“Thank you! Thank you Miami! I am very happy to be standing here in front of all of you. I’m here today for one purpose: I’m running for President! *crowd cheers* thank you! For the past 8 years we have had a prosperous country, I will admit. But we need to bring conservative values back into America. The Democratic Party is moving too far to the left. I’m running to defend the second amendment, to cut taxes across the board, and to bring God back into American society. For 4 years my father ran this country. And my older brother ran it for 8. People will compare me to them. Or think of me as ‘another Bush’ but I am my own candidate! My own person. Who happens to be in that family! *crowd cheers* thank you! The Democrats need to be stopped. President Bredesen has done an okay job, but new issues are arising. Isis. We need to destroy ISIS. We need to bring God back into the public sector. And defend the second amendment. Thank you all and God Bless!”

Romney Campaign Anouncement: Boston, Massachusetts

Hello Boston! It is so great to be with so many friends and my beautiful family. I speak with you today at a critical time our nation's history… For 8 long years, we have had a Democrat in the White House. Republicans are in the minority and we, as a party and as a nation, have lost our way. I think it is high time we get some real experience in Washington!

We need to get our economy moving again. Many Americans feel left out and not listened to in this country. Anger, angst and resentment have built up for a long time and we are seeing it boil over. We need a unifier in this country, not a divider!

I want to build a campaign, not with big names or big endorsements. Not with PACs or special interests groups. I want to build a campaign built around you. The American people.

I am fighting for the single mom struggling with balancing two jobs.

For the vet who comes home and doesn’t get the care he or she deserves.

I’m fighting for the responsible gun owner who doesn’t want his rights taken away.

I’m fighting for the small business owner who struggles under restrictions and high taxes.

I’m fighting for all people, from California to Virginia. From Florida to Maine. From Washington to Tennessee. I am fighting for a better America.

Together, we can get big things done. Together we can take back the White House and put American back on track. Together, we will believe in American again.

My name is Mitt Romney and I am running for President of the United States!

Thank you, let’s get to work and take back our country! Thank you!

Eh. Lets just say he's older in this timeline. I was allowed to play him in one of his other games.
