By using my well documented knowledge of time travel, I decided to jump ahead and see what future elections held in store. Red will be happy to know that we elect our first female president in 2024. Though she is perky and optimistic, she did turn out to be a Reagan Republican.
Honestly, no other big shockers until 2052 when we elect our first cyborg president. His name is RA-1f N4DR, and he is an independent. I tried to bring back a picture, but I couldn't fit his hologram on my thumb drive. So I have represented him with this photo of Cpt. Picard when he was assimilated by the Borg.
While most Americans in 2052 viewed my fear of cyborgs as an irrational prejudice and a dated relic better suited for 20th Century cinema, there were other reasons people were outraged at the N4DR election. Chiefly that, although his biological components were born in the United States, most of his electromechanical systems were manufactured overseas. Even though he has had all of his foreign programming erased and replaced with strictly American programming, there are those that still fear he may have some hidden foreign agenda firmware.
Slightly less controversial is his opposition to the Canadian Enslavement Act of 2017. Some Americans in 2052 are of the opinion that the country as it stood was built on the back of Canuck labor which was an irrevocable part of American culture. Even though once economic stability was restored only the very rich kept maple leaf-branded slaves as status symbols, the historic relevance was what seemed to be important to these conservatives.
Despite all of this, the cities were plastered with bumper stickers and posters with the campaign slogan "N4DR: the logical choice." And there was ensuing pandemonium as 'borgs the world over celebrated their "victory." And the world at large seemed envious of our progressiveness.
Maybe I am old fashioned, but I am just not comfortable with the idea of that half-man-half-toaster sitting in the oval office. Especially if he is wacko enough to think Canadians should be set free!
