  2. WI: President McMullin

    Two years ago, FiveThirtyEight released an article[1] about how Evan McMullin would theoretically become president in a very unlikely scenario. Basically, McMullin first had to win Utah and cause a deadlock in the electoral college, then be picked by the house. In order to get this to happen...
  3. AHC: Create a buffer state(s) between the United States and Mexico
