I unironically think that Kanye is even less qualified than Trump. At least Trump never tweeted a picture of him peeing on an the grammy that he won and never shared his entire contract page by page on it either.
Those aren't examples of Kanye being "less qualified", they're examples of Kanye suffering from bipolar disorder while Trump doesn't.

1933-1933: Franklin Delano Roosevelt/John Nance Garner (Democratic) [President-elect]
1932 def. Herbert Hoover/Charles Curtis (Republican)

FDR was intent on solving the Great Depression. Alas, he was assassinated by one Giuseppe Zangara before he could be sworn in.

1933-1936: John Nance Garner/Vacant (Democratic)

Garner was a semi-competent president, despite his conservatism, and passed a variety of social programs that helped the US get out of some of the Great Depression. His term, however, saw growing support for the unification of states in "sub-confederations" with their own legislatures, in an attempt to ensure economic aid could be better distributed. He died of a stroke in 1936, and by the Presidential Succession Act 1935 it was up to Congress to choose who the next one would be.

1936-1937: Huey Long/Vacant (Democratic)

1937-1937: Huey Long/Alben Barkley (Democratic)
def. William Borah/Alf Landon (Republican)

At first, Long was perceived to be a mere puppet of the party elite, with his gullible Louisianan accent. But then he proved everyone wrong. He proved headstrong and willing to butt heads with the party establishment when it came to making new economic. When he passed an act with much of his own cabinet opposing him, the result was that he was removed from his party and ordered to resign. But instead he brought most of the party with him, and forced his ambitious VP to resign instead.

1937-1941: Huey Long/Vacant (Democratic (Government))

With his success confirmed by various special elections and state elections, Long engaged in his other great achievement. He formed in a coalition in 1937 against the restored Kaiserreich, and defeated Chancellor Hugenberg's Germany in a matter of months. Long was celebrated, and was compared to Christian saints.

But the economy was getting worse (albeit due to a crash in London). The result was mass protests led by people who he once called friends. His popularity subsequently tanked. The protests poured into Washington, and his own election was brought in doubt by the Supreme Court which declared his sign-up process illegal and declared him ineligible. Then he panicked and declared the suspension of habeas corpus. He imprisoned his political opponents and cancelled midterms. As this continued, things got worse. The constitution was amended to centralize vast power in Long's hands. His son Marion gained a massive amount of power, using it to clear slums in the name of "beautification" and launch campaigns of mass sterilization. However, things looked calm and the protests had come to an end. And so Long declared the end of mass imprisonment and held a presidential election. Then he lost, massively.

1941-1944: Alben Barkley/William Borah (People's Party)
1940 def. Huey Long/Cordell Hull (Democratic)

Coming to power on a massive wave of optimism for change, Barkey's administration would dash the hopes of many. Led by a figure who was long-hoping to become president, it seemed his goal was finally successful (even if he was now in an entirely different party). His administration did successfully make suspension of habeas corpus much more difficult to declare and Long's amendment was abolished. However, the People's Party, made up of every possible opponent to the Long administration, quickly collapsed in on its own internal disagreements. There was nothing unifying it whatsoever. All the while Long made campaigns across the nation to regain his stature. Finally, in 1944, Barkley's own vice president broke away from the People's Party to form his own party in coalition with the Democrats, and they worked together to impeach and remove Barkley on "corruption" charges that were blatantly made up.

1944-1945: William Borah/Vacant (People's Party (B))

However, immediately upon Borah getting power, Long rescinded his support. Thus, Borah lost his opportunity to pass his desired reforms, and he was little more than a lame duck till the next election

1945-1948: Huey Long/Russell Long (Democratic)
1944 def. Henry Wallace/Wendell Wilkie (People's Party), William Borah/Robert LaFollette Jr. (People's Party (B))

Coming to power with a landslide over the People's Party split, Huey Long cruised to victory despite his former dictatorial period. Yet, in his new period, he faced a new crisis. The Southern Revivalist movement, which often veered into neo-Confederate sentiments, became powerful, a long-term trend ultimately coming from the government establishing the Magnolia Legislature for the Deep South in 1936 in an effort led by more moderate Southern groups. In the 1944 election, the Southern Revivalists had ironically supported Long's campaign, in an effort by his "enfant terrible" Marion Long to regain support - Marion's death before the election from his own aerial daredevilry was only the first step before this alliance broke apart. The Revivalists soon became violent, as the Ku Klux Klan saw its second revival as an explicitly neo-Confederate secessionist group and it was supported by many of them, with the goal of creating an independent "Dixie". It launched terrorist attacks against black congregations, and took part in a variety of massacres. It grew and grew in scope, until in 1948 it was powerful even if it was on the run from the federal government, with its leadership sequestered in the historic First Baptist Church of Charleston. Long ordered troops to stop them. The sequestered Ku Klux Klan had far more firepower than anyone expected, and the result was that, though the leadership of the new Ku Klux Klan was killed, the Church was destroyed. Southerners were outraged that one of their greatest churches was destroyed. The result was an assassination attempt against Long's own Treasury Secretary and mutinies by some Southern troops. And Long's own bodyguards, who came from South Carolina, decided to assassinate him as revenge. And so died Huey Long, killed by those he entrusted with his life.

Huey Long is one of the most controversial figures in American history. Some view him as a martyr, as a saint incarnate, and others view him as a tyrant, as a monster. Even today, this historiographic battle continues unabated. No doubt, he shall be argued over for many years to come....

Originally wrote this for the List Contest, but then I realized it had a starting date of 11/11/18.

List of Heads of Government of Russia (1917-present)
1917-1917 Georgy Lvov
1917-1917 Alexander Kerensky
1917-1921 Grigory Zinoviev (All-Socialist Union Alliance)
1921-1923 Leon Trotsky (Bolshevik-Trotskyist)
1923-1929 Lev Kamenev (All-Socialist Union Alliance, then Socialist Unionist Party)
1929-1930 Yakov Sverdlov (Bolshevik-Leninist Continuity)
1930-1933 Lev Kamenev (Socialist Unionist Party)
1933-1936 Pavel Milyukov (Constitutional Democratic Party)
1936-1939 Lev Kamenev (Socialist Unionist Party)

Basically there is no Kornilov coup, Lenin and Stalin are killed, and the October Revolution doesn't happen. Zinoviev and Kamenev lead an all-socialist alliance that deposes the Provisional Government. They spend the next five years fighting the civil war, which ends in a stalemate and massive loss of life all around. Meanwhile the Romanovs are exiled, with the Tsar and his family in Britain and other family members and nobility scattered throughout Europe, mostly in France. In 1923, the civil war ends in a peace brokered by the League of Nations(!) which creates a constitutional parliamentary democracy. Alexei is made the Emperor of a territorially reduced Russia but remains in Britain while the members of the State Duma pass the title of Regent among themselves like a hot potato. Kamenev, succeeding the assassinated Zinoviev, leads the Union Alliance to a sweeping victory in the new elections. Kamenev's socialist government is (mostly) successful and leads Russia through a period of rebuilding. In 1929, Sverdlov is able to break apart the alliance and attempts a Leninist revolutionary coup. He is defeated after other socialists work with the liberals to maintain constitutional democracy. This move is decried by many socialists and communists as traitorous. Although Kamenev returns to power with a reduced majority, the socialists are weakened. The liberals win the next elections led by the Kadets. They bring Tsar Alexei back to Russia and ignore the growing threat of Germany. The Socialists return to power 3 years later and end up getting stuck with the war when the Germans invade Poland(?) in 1938.

So Gould in the aftermath of the 1979 General Election heads back to New Zealand (yes it's a handwave), whilst there he joins the Labour Party and is briefly a Labour MP in 1984 before in disgust at 'Rogernomics' joins the Social Credit Party and rapidly becomes the leader when Bruce Beetham sees the writing on the wall. Gould manages to capitalise on anger towards Rogernomics in his election campaign and allows the Social Credit party to gain some seats as a result. The Labour-Social Credit coalition is seen as many about trying bring a Social Democratic cacaus to New Zealand but mainly it's the Market Socialist/Social Credit ideas hitting the brick wall of Roger Douglas who is constantly angered by Gould undermining him. David Lange throws in the towel and Gould is briefly Prime Minister as the Labour Party slugs it out in a leadership election as it heads into an election. Jim Bolger but perceived National domination doesn't last long and Helen Clark manages to win the 1993 election with help from the Democratic Alliance a disparate mix of various different parties from the Māori Party, the Green Party, the Jim Anderton Progressive Party and Gould's very own Democratic Party, all the parties mainly untied behind a Progressive Democratic Eco-Socialist message.

From there we see the slow infiltration of Gouldnomics into Left Wing Circles whilst the Right pursues a more Christian Democratic approach...

Trent Lott - North America's Last Dictator

Presidents of the Republic of Mississippi
1994-0000: Trent Lott (Independent)
1994 def. Thad Cochran (Independent), Haley Barbour (Mississippi Popular Front), Mike Espy (Independent), Lester Spell (Farmers')
2001 def. Ray Mabus (Independent)
2006 def. Erik Fleming (United Democratic Front)

2020 def. Omeria Scott (Independent)


Emerging from the rubble of post-Communist America relatively in tact, the former State of Mississippi could never move passed the authoritarian impulses and Federal-philia that were briefly popular among its neighbors. Mississippi's first presidential election would see the ascension of State Representative and former Commissar of State Agriculture Trent Lott. Lott, a self professed authoritarian and federalist, was an unorthodox President for a nation that had seemingly just rejected both authoritarianism and federalism. Lott's Browderite biography and his competent record in the agriculture sector enchanted voters who were already longing for the stability of the American Federal Socialist Union. Lott's longtime refusal to change the existing social credit system (in contrast to many of his neighbors) and his close relationship with Texas oil barons and later American Union President Neil Bush contributed to the survival of his regime. What has contributed more to his regime's survival, however, is Lott's rigging of elections and arresting, torturing, and even executing his political rivals. More than all else, Lott rules on fear and intimidation.

But the times are changing. Recent economic tribulations and the weakening of the Western Bloc in the face of the Eurasian and the Hind superpowers, as well the increasing activism of Mississippians against Lott's authoritarian government has sparked the flame of what very well might be a Mississippian Revolution.

Just a quickie, Joseph Smith never founds Mormonism, instead he becomes a political ally of Seward, and he's selected to be Lincoln's VP, and Lincoln never trades him for a Union Party gambit. Stuff breaks, Lincoln dies, Smith enacts a Radical Reconstruction, land redistribution and all.
