1. It doesn't matter if Haste is the first vamp to be President, a Vampire lives forever. Waiting 60 years before running for office after coming out would be nothing to a guy who was a full grown adult at the time of the American Revolution. In order for a proper "cool down time" to be implemented there would have to be actual political weight behind it, which seems unlikely because it would actually require a wave anti-immortal sentiment among normal humans that doesn't devolve into Fundamentalist bs.They probably gonna have a “cool down time for vampires” so you can do four year every century or so. Honestly seeing how Haste is the first vamp to become President (although Lovecraft did run in the 60’s) and vampires making up little of the us and world population that it gonna be a long time before the issue comes up.
I mean as technology advances how long until life extensions undercut vampire’s monopoly age on immortality So this is gonna be a future problem anyway before in BR and OTL.
That kinda fear mongering, vamps have been out in the open since the early to mid 50’s in BR and no one beside Cambodia under Pol Pot had ordered people to give blood. Most vampires get their blood from local blood blanks. Coke and order companies has been making blood sodas since the 60’s by now so their no need to “farm” humans. Also these are not the Buffy type lose your soul once you join the undead type vampire, they keep their emotions and original personality after becoming a blood sucker so forcing people to give up blood wouldn’t go over well even among vampires. Would you force your neighbor to give up blood when you could go down to the local store and get diet B positive and hot chips?
Pre Castro Cuba, Brazil during the 50’s-70’s, Portugal before the carnation revolution, The USA during the 50’s-60’s, South Japan until the 80’s, South Africa until the 90’s, not to mention large parts of the Middle East (mostly due what Uday did during the third gulf war and the Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan) and Africa to this day have horrible anti vampire laws. Hell one of the reasons why the US still support The Greater Liberian Republic is for their tolerance for vamp rights.
2. I don't believe life-extending technologies will come about as quickly as they will OTL, as the primary market for early versions of these techniques, the Rich, would probably like to take the 100% guaranteed immortality of Vampirism rather than buy very rudimentary products that won't have the same effect as Vampirism for centuries at the very least.
3. This seems self contradictory, there's not enough Vampires around for supply of blood to become an issue yet there are enough to justify major companies to make blood-products to such a degree that they are available at a corner shop. Keep in mind that the vast majority of the human population probably doesn't like drinking blood so these products are specially made for vampires. Which also poses the question of where does all the blood for these products come from? The amount of stuff a company goes through to mass produce products OTL is HUGE (look at anything Nestle does), now that blood's in the mix supply problems will pop up sooner or later. The obvious solution would be to pay poor people for their's, but then there's the problem of blood borne diseases infecting the supply.
4. I should've been more specific. I meant a fully developed modern economy being able to look at the prospect of Vampires as a part of society and go "No thanks" while maintaining liberalism as a facet of their societies beyond some boomer "SEGREGATION FOREVER!" type shit where the legislation just gets passed a few months later anyway.
