ADS94: 2016 New England
Did I go overboard? Probably. Do I care? Hell no.
I'm working on a lot more. I have... maybe 6 unfinished wiki pages thus far, with 11 more planned out on paper.Nah.
Thank you. I really don't want to think about how much time and effort I have into this universe, and this wikibox alone. I even built an income tax calculator for the quick portion that was included in the Conservative's campaign platform. I am currently working on a wikibox of all 233 MPs. I have them all selected by Adirondack's thus far.I am utterly speechless. This is Astonishing, Amazing, Mind-Blowing. It is simply marvellous and I must congratulate you for all the effort you must have put into this.
In theory, I have my timeline that's in my sig "Our Fair Country," but I've had writers block for the 1840s era for... well, a year now. So I'm just sticking to modernish wiki boxes like this for the time being. I've already done a bunch before that are just boxes:
Joining in with the thousands of Québécois moving south in search of factory work from their failing farms, Joseph Trudeau moved to Brooklyn in 1904 where he brought his entire family, including Charles-Émile Trudeau. The Trudeau family became very successful in Brooklyn, with Joseph Trudeau's grandson Pierre Trudeau becoming the Lord Mayor of Brooklyn, and Justin Trudeau currently stands as the MP for Ward 6 Brooklyn and serves as the Minister of Immigration.I love this so much, the amount of effort you must've put into it is beyond impressive.
My only question is why Justin Trudeau is a New Englander, but that's clearly small unimportant given, again, how amazing this is.
My money would be VA, IN, MI, and AZ would be the main swing states (although a lot of these states aren't particularly Libertarian, they just have awful legislatures).2040: An America Transformed.

The 2040 election would be a hotly contested one between the Libertarian incumbent, President Michael "Mike" Henderson of Virginia, and the Democratic challenger Senator Caitlin Rodriguez of Texas. As was typical in the new party system, the focus was on the economy and on foreign policy issues where the two parties most disagreed with. Rodriguez argued for an active government fighting against income inequality as well as liberal internationalism, Henderson arguing for government keeping out of people's lives and out of foreign wars unless necessary. None of them were advocating anything like the "America First!" policies of the old Republicans, of course. Such a thing was heavily unpopular and thus politically unelectable in 2040.
It was shaping up to be a close race, but Rodriguez always had the upper hand as the nation was slowly tiring after twelve years of Libertarian presidencies. Maybe it was time for the Party of Klobuchar to return to government. Fiscal reports of an increase in income inequality and a decrease in class mobility, widely spread by Democrats, merely sealed the deal as people rallied behind Rodriguez.
President Henderson would go down to a respectable defeat, netting 231 electoral votes and 44.9% of the popular vote, while the victorious Senator Rodriguez won 309 electoral votes and 47.3% of the popular vote. Notable here was the final collapse of the "Grand Old Party" as its three nominees [due to a convention dispute] all failed to get over 5% of votes. Nobody missed them.
The actual swing states are...My money would be VA, IN, MI, and AZ would be the main swing states (although a lot of these states aren't particularly Libertarian, they just have awful legislatures).
