Elect the president, each election.

Postby La xinga » Tue Oct 20, 2020 8:07 am

This belongs in either F7 of General. I needed to pick one so I picked this one. If it needs to be moved a mod will move it. Hopefully.

Inspired from FCN's polls. Oh who are we kidding, this is a direct copy!

So basically, every week is another election. For example, Week 1 is the 1796 election, then Week 2 is the 1800, Week 3 is the 1804, and so on, and so on.

We're not doing 1789 and 1792 because it was just Washington.

The rules:
I can't stop you, BUT PLEASE VOTE ON ONE ACCOUNT ONLY. Voting multiple times ruins the game for everyone!

And this.


So we begin with 1796.


Current election: 1824.
In the United States presidential election of 1824, John Quincy Adams was elected President on February 9, 1825, after the election was decided by the House of Representatives. The previous few years had seen a one-party government in the United States, as the Federalist Party had dissolved, leaving only the Democratic-Republican Party. In this election, the Democratic-Republican Party splintered as four separate candidates sought the presidency. Such splintering had not yet led to formal party organization, but later the faction led by Andrew Jackson would evolve into the Democratic Party, while the factions led by John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay would become the National Republican Party and later the Whig Party.

This election is notable for being the only time since the passage of the Twelfth Amendment in which the presidential election was decided by the House of Representatives, as no candidate received a majority of the electoral vote. This presidential election was also the only one in which the candidate receiving the most electoral votes did not become president (because a majority, not just a plurality, is required to win). It is also often said to be the first election in which the president did not win the popular vote, although the popular vote was not measured nationwide. At that time, several states did not conduct a popular vote, allowing their state legislature to choose their electors.


Issues of the Day: Monroe Doctrine

And say who you voted for below!

Election of 1796: VOTE!

John Adams (Federalist) 20 Votes
Thomas Jefferson (Democratic-Republican) 40 Votes (WINNER!)
Thomas Pinckney (Federalist) 9 Votes
Aaron Burr (Democratic-Republican) 7 Votes!
Total votes: 76


Election of 1800: VOTE!

John Adams (Federalist) 14 Votes
Thomas Jefferson (Democratic-Republican) 29 Votes (WINNER!)
Charles Pinckney (Federalist) 5 Votes
Aaron Burr (Democratic-Republican) 8 Votes
Total votes: 56


Election of 1804: VOTE!

Charles C. Pinckney, Rufus King (Federalist) 15 Votes
Thomas Jefferson, George Clinton (Democratic-Republican) 32 Votes (WINNER!)
Total Votes: 47


Election of 1808: VOTE!

Charles Pinckney, Rufus King (Federalist) 39 Votes (WINNER!)
James Madison, George Clinton (Democratic-Republican) 26 Votes
Total Votes: 65


Election of 1812: VOTE!

DeWitt Clinton, Jared Ingersoll (Semi-Federalist) 18 Votes (WINNER!)
James Madison, Elbridge Gerry (Democratic-Republican) 13 Votes
Total Votes: 31


Election of 1816: VOTE!

Rufus King, John Eager Howard (Federalist) 20 Votes (WINNER!)
James Monroe, Daniel D. Tompkins (Democratic-Republican) 17 Votes
Total Votes: 37

And, while an election is in place, you could debate about it.

I don't really like either, given that I don't agree with Adam's fiscal views n stuff, but I also don't like Jefferson's slavery thing. Hm. Well, I might as well flip a coin and see. Oh, and I got Adams. Well, I guess I'm reluctantly voting for him.

Jefferson, although somewhat Racist, is far better than any of the other options, Adams was not fit, Burr only focused on the North, and Pickney was never noticed.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Pinckney

Denmark Vesey conspiracy
In 1822, news was reported of a massive planned slave uprising, to be led by Denmark Vesey, a literate free man of color. Vesey and numerous other free blacks and slaves were quickly arrested in a roundup and suppression of rebellion by authorities. Slaves constituted the majority of the population in Charleston, where there was a substantial population of free people of color. Whites long feared just such an uprising. In closed court proceedings, Vesey and numerous other suspects were convicted; they were soon executed as conspirators. Arrests continued, with some suspects deported from the country.

Pinckney published a pamphlet listing factors that he thought led to the rebellion conspiracy and should be prevented in the future.

1st: The example of St. Domingo (Saint-Domingue) (Note: A violent and protracted slave uprising there gained the independence of Haiti in 1804), and the encouragement received therefrom.
2nd: The indiscreet zeal in favor of universal liberty, expressed by many of our fellow citizens in the States north and east of Maryland; aided by the black population of those states.
3rd: The idleness, dissipation, and improper indulgences permitted among all classes of negroes in Charleston, and particularly among the domestic being taught to read and write. Being taught to read and write is the most dangerous.
4th: The facility of obtaining money afforded by the nature of their occupations to those employed as mechanics, draymen, fisherman, butchers, porters and hucksters.
5th: The disparity of numbers between the white and black inhabitants of the city.[10]
