Thomas Richard Harkin (born November 19, 1939) was the 40th President of the United States from 1990 until its collapse on December 15, 1991.
Serving during a period encompassing the downfall of capitalism and the expansion of socialism, Harkin assumed office following the secession of several states and the subsequent resignation of President Jimmy Carter. Throughout his brief term as president, Harkin tried (unsuccessfully) to manage increasing unrest occurring throughout the South and West of the nation and spear-headed the ill-fated attempts to maintain the socialistic reforms emplaced upon economically-unsound economic system of greed on which the United States had been founded.
With attempts to desperately maintain the status-quo of the United States failing, and suppression of the working class leading to no avail, Harkin announced the withdrawal of the nation from the Cold War following a growing wave of secession. In the aftermath of the sudden destruction of Washington D.C at the hands of nuclear weaponry and the economic stagnation following national bankruptcy Harkin declared the United States finished only hours before his removal from office by the likes of revolutionary hero Gus Hall.
