WI: The Carter Administration gives money to the Youngstown Effort, creating conservative rage and in response a more conservative economic policy and Gar Alperovitz becoming famous.
Very cool POD. Have you read Front Porch Politics by any chance? Great resource for under-studied social movements of this period including Youngstown.

Social Credit Members of Congress (2003-2005):
The Social Credit movement and party was the culmination of years of change in the American people’s philosophy of government and economic policy. The days of the New Deal and Kenyesian economics were dead, with the Libertarians promoting a freer economic and social system, the Democrats promoting the Commonwealth ideology, Republicans going for a mix of supply-side economics and conservative social issues, and the National Unionists were really the only ones who wanted to bring the old systems back. The Social Credit philosophy was spread to America by Minnesota Governor Tim Penny, who first heard about it via New Zealand’s Social Credit PM Stefan Lipa. In 1996, Penny formed the American Social Credit Party and left the Democrats. The ASCP nominated Bob Kelleher in 1996 who only managed 0.97% of the vote, with most of it coming from Penny’s Minnesota. In 1998, Penny lead the ASCP to its strongest pre-2002 result in his re-election campaign, as he won 20.34% in a very split field, but lost the election. From there, Penny attempted to spread the ideology, and in 2002 the party was able to make small house gains in opposition to some of President Gar Alperovitz’s social policies but agreeing on some points economically.

My daily proselytizing political punk is now at SLP, in an official Bernie or Bust (TM) three-for-one deal!


Deal pending a Biden primary victory. Bernie or Bust (TM) is not available for any Trump victories that may occur as a result of Biden being generally shit. Any attempt to blame Bernie supporters for Biden being bad may have the following side effects: post morten depression, a Progressive kickback, radical centrism, or aiding the bourgeoisie. If you have any concerns about using this product, please consult your nearest constituent and remember: the majority of Americans support Medicare for All. Eat the rich!
