 **//With Liberty And Justice For All//** is the second AIPverse game, this time playing the increasingly-liberal Republicans. Despite attempts to push it to the right to prevent an AIP rise (notably coming close to nominating James Buckley in 1976 and nominating Ronald Reagan in 1980), Phil Crane still became President. The AIP had more success in this world despite losing 1988, as they had a two-term President in the form of Larry McDonald in the 2000s. McDonald was succeeded by Hillary Clinton (2009-2017) and Lindsey Graham (2017-?), both Republicans. Curiously enough, this world did not see a Democratic split, mainly because Komodo forgot to include it this time. **//With Liberty And Justice For All//** is the second AIPverse game, this time playing the increasingly-liberal Republicans.

-**//The Whole World Is Watching//​** is the third and final "​classical"​ AIPverse game, this time focusing on a shrinking and increasingly-radical Democratic Party. This Democratic Party split, but the moderates kept a distinct identity, not joining the Republicans and instead backing them via fusion while the Democratic-Statehood Party remains defiant. However in 2016, there was a push for voters in the DSP primaries and convention to endorse ​Charlie Crist (the incumbent GOP president), which showed that even the radicals were getting tired, even as the endorse movement was defeated. ​The main Democratic Party decided to run Barack Obama, which successfully rebounded the party from its lethargic state, even at President Crist'​s cost as Michele Bachmann became President.+**//The Whole World Is Watching//​** is the third and final "​classical"​ AIPverse game, this time focusing on a shrinking and increasingly-radical Democratic Party.

 **//A Leadership of Hope//** is the first attempt at a "​Dem-AIPverse",​ an alternate world where the Republicans fell and the Democrats became the opponent to the AIP. Wilbur Hobby (1977-1981) and Ed Koch (1989-1997) was the Democratic Party'​s presidents in this world. However, it ended up being cancelled due to Komodo'​s decreasing interest in continuing it. The below TL could be called a spiritual successor in a sense. **//A Leadership of Hope//** is the first attempt at a "​Dem-AIPverse",​ an alternate world where the Republicans fell and the Democrats became the opponent to the AIP.

 **//​[[http://​wiki.alternatehistory.com/​doku.php?​id=shared_worlds:​aipverse|Stand Up For America]]//​** is the Keys To The White House AIPverse game, starting in 1976 and for the first time, giving the members a chance to decide all three parties'​ candidates. In the words of [[Offtopic:​Fleetlord|Fleetlord]],​ "​Komodo has traumatized the Democrats in this game into acting like... OTL Democrats",​ as the Democrats of this world solidly rejected the New Left that found success in other games, instead nominating people like Henry Jackson, Hugh Carey, Reubin Askew and Al Gore, while the Republicans increasingly became libertarian and the "third party" of this world, thus making it into a "​Dem-AIPverse"​. Also, Phil Crane didn't become President in the '80s (unlike other AIPverse timelines), that honour went to Meldrim Thomson, Jr. of New Hampshire instead. ​ **//​[[http://​wiki.alternatehistory.com/​doku.php?​id=shared_worlds:​aipverse|Stand Up For America]]//​** is the Keys To The White House AIPverse game, starting in 1976 and for the first time, giving the members a chance to decide all three parties'​ candidates.
