WVProgressive Posted January 13, 2022 Share Posted January 13, 2022 (edited) The poll I ran on discord shows a clear preference for a 2024 quickshot rp, so here it is. For help in determining how Biden’s term went, I rolled a one hundred sided die for each of the following major issues: Covid-19: 76 – Covid has been mostly contained as the election opens, and has been supplanted in the minds of many voters by other issues. Economy: 26 – While Covid has mostly receded, the same can’t be said of its recession. Inflation, underemployment, and income inequality increased during Biden’s term. Crime: 6 – Crime has skyrocketed during Biden’s first term, nearing levels not seen since the 1980s China: 79 – The Second Cold War continues, but for the time being America has a clear advantage over the Chinese. Widespread acknowledgment of Chinese human rights abuses against Uighur Muslims, and the loss of North Korea as an ally following a US-Japanese backed military coup in early 2023 after Kim Jung-Un suffered a debilitating stroke helped fuel America’s current advantage. Russia: 94 – The so called Slavic Spring began with pro-liberalization protests in Poland, and soon spread throughout Eastern Europe, culminating in the ouster of Putin, and United Russia from political power, replaced by democracy activist, and political prisoner Alexei Navalny of the Coalition For Change. The Presidency of Navalny saw a far less bellicose Russia, one which returned the territories of Crimea to Ukraine, and which began the first of many steps towards European Integration. Midterms: 21 – The 2022 elections was a Red Wave in every sense of the word, with Republicans retaking the house, and senate by healthy margins, as well as increasing the number of Governorships, and State Legislatures they held. Voting Rights: 57 – Nothing much changes, with Republican voter ID laws in safe red states being outweighed by Democratic voting rights laws in safe blue states. Due to the fact that most high population states are also blue states, the Democrats have an advantage on this, but not by much. Social Issues: 47 – Again, nothing much changes, the Supreme Court struck down the Texas abortion law, which created a chilling effect against any other major socially conservative legislature. Republican control of the federal, and many state, legislatures also prevented the passage of any major liberal social bills. Race Relations: 26 – Race relations continued to be strained during Biden’s first term. Fueled by a lack of substantive racial reform, and the continued growth of non-white populations, there is a heavy level of discontent between White, and Non-White Americans, leading to a modestly sizable increase in support to racialized policies on both the left, and right. Infrastructure: 81 – The passage of Biden’s infrastructure bill saw noticeable, large improvements in the quality of many roads, especially those in rural communities, while also improving urban transportation. It also aided railway infrastructure, helping Biden curry favor among Socialists. Other Foreign Policy: 85 – Despite the disaster that was the Afghanistan withdrawal, Biden’s foreign policy has actually been one of his administration’s sweet spots. He has repaired America’s standing abroad, strengthened NATO, spearheaded the end of Venezualan, and Bolivian socialism, ended the Cuban embargo, and negotiated a new Trans-Pacific-Partnership. Immigration: 45 – Immigration rates didn’t change a noticeable amount during Biden’s term, however he has been sharply criticized by Progressives for his continuation of Trump’s illegal immigrant detention program. Climate Change: 65 – There was no major federal legislation with regards to climate change, however many blue states passed their own environmental legislation, with Vermont, and California even passing mini-Green New Deals. Despite the lack of federal legislation, fossil fuels like Oil, Natural Gas, and Coal saw hard times during Biden’s term, and states reliant on these industries saw little to no help in rebuilding their economies. Due to being forced into objectively worse jobs in the service sector, resentment among the former employees of fossil fuel industries is high. It is September 10th, 2023 turns last one week. You know how this works I’m sure, 3 events a turn, plus an endorsement request. Democratic Party Candidates: Pres. Joe Biden VP. Kamala Harris Rep.
