** His extreme free-market policies sees him [[PrivateMilitaryContractors privatising the US military]], leading to US soldiers being given woefully substandard equipment and [[spoiler:being sent to their deaths in a catastrophic failed invasion of Cuba]]. He also even goes so far as to [[spoiler:''give the standing order for all wounded US soldiers to be executed by their officers to avoid paying the healthcare bill to save them'']]. This last crossing of the MoralEventHorizon is so horrifying it leads to ''Hawaii and California seceding'' and pretty much everybody in his administration to finally turn on him.

** He allows employers to slash ''all wages in half across the board'' under the cover of investing the other half in the stock market, and removes all forms of workers' rights and social welfare, leading to unbearable poverty and terrible working conditions for working-class Americans, akin to serfdom and sharecropping.

** He bullies state governments into accepting his policies, [[spoiler: and later, when Pete [=McCloskey=] is re-elected as California's governor, he tries to annul the election in favor of his handpicked stooge, and impeaches the Supreme Court justices who ruled against overturning the election results]]. This pushes California, Hawaii, and Idaho into seceding from the union.

** Turning Hollywood into a PropagandaMachine which vilifies historical figures that he hates, such as calling FDR a communist.
** Establishing a permit system to restrict interstate travel, which is officially done to stop the free travel of criminals and terrorists, but is really about compiling a database on everyone's movements for political purposes.
** Staging [[RightWingMilitiaFanatic "Liberty Battalions"]] [[ANaziByAnyOtherName to burn any books critical of his free market economic policies and "disappear" any like-wise celebrities and political enemies]].
** Slashing ''all wages in half across the board'' and removing all forms of workers' rights and social welfare, leading to unbearable poverty and terrible working conditions for working-class Americans, akin to slavery.
** Alienating nearly all of his allies (resulting in NATO being disbanded) with the notable exception of the two dictatorial and genocidal states of South Africa and Israel (which he champions as bastions of freedom). He supports terrorism in Northern Ireland to "punish" the British for voting in a Labour government.
** Not only resorting to blatant electoral fraud to be re-elected for his second term but also ''attempting to make himself president for life''. In fact, he privately admits to wanting to tear up the Constitution and strip US citizens of every constitutional right except the right to bear arms.
** Wanting to have all homosexuals imprisoned, [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain comparing them to pedophiles.]]
** Shutting down the nascent civilian Internet before it can get off the ground, all in the name of "national security".
** Removing every single environmental regulation and ''actively encouraging coal pollution''. Even pushing to have concern for the environment declared a mental disorder.
** Attempting to ''weaponize AIDS''.
** [[EvilIsPetty Conspiring to fill Earth's orbit with waste just to make things difficult for the Russian space program]].
** And believe it or not, he's '''nothing''' compared to [[spoiler: Douglas Coe]]. How bad is he? [[spoiler: Under his command, congress is destroyed (literally), DC has many of its historic landmarks demolished to make way for [[MonumentOfHumiliationAndDefeat monuments to himself and Jesus]], and the US is transformed into a totalitarian theocracy, complete with the 10 commandments added into the constitution. By 1990, the country has descended into a second civil war, with [[DividedStatesOfAmerica entire regions of states declaring independence]].

* Apparently, the people in Creator/JohnCarpenter's CrapsackWorld future in the ''Escape From...'' film series can'''not''' get a good president. In ''[[Film/EscapeFromNewYork ...New York]]'', he was a scheming little crook, and ''[[Film/EscapeFromLA ...LA]]'' had an outright religious psychotic. The second guy actually managed to get the Constitution amended to stay PresidentForLife. His first act after that? Move the capital to his hometown (Lynchburg, VA).
