Incumbent President Bo Gritz of the Freedom Party defeated former President Gerald Ford, who ran as an independent, and Ralph Nader, who ran as the Alliance candidate. This was...

    American anti-Communism if America had become Communist

    Even with the caveat that any America where a communist government could come to power at some point in the early 20th century (per the follow-up by the OP as ATL communist America coming about as a result of the Great Depression) would be substantially different than the OTL country of that...

    Lists of Heads of Government and Heads of State

    I'm all sorts of confused. First off, why did Wellstone stop teaching in 1972? The only reason he stopped doing so IOTL was that he was elected to the Senate. Surely he would have continued being a professor and an activist until he was elected to the House ITTL. Second, Wellstone never lived...

    Lists of Heads of Government and Heads of State

    For anyone who thinks these names are outlandish, the only thing that differentiates them from something you'd see in OTL Minnesota are the special characters/accent marks and deliberate use of Scandinavian or Eastern European versions of some common given names ("Jakob" instead of "Jacob" for...

    The 2020 Supreme Court retention elections took place on November 3, 2020 to determine whether to retain two of the nine justices of the Supreme Court of the United States.

    Lists of Heads of Government and Heads of State

    I would pay money to be able to travel back in time and watch people's reaction to Big Brain Murray Rothbard discussing how the biggest problem he has with Strom Thurmond is that Thurmond took part in D-Day.

    Lists of Heads of Government and Heads of State

    Imagine being a teenager during both the attack on Pearl Harbor and the discovery of the death camps that, in another lifetime your parents (both Jews who immigrated to the US from Eastern Europe) would have been sent to, and still somehow coming away with "we should have been neutral."

    Native Hawaiian majority in Hawaii

    It should also be pointed out that the Native Americans & Aboriginal Australians had trade networks that connected populations across their respective continents, so they weren't ever completely isolated as the Native Hawaiians were for at least 500 years before Captain Cook's arrival in 1778...

    Lists of Heads of Government and Heads of State

    It's probably a combination of Long's brothers not living extraordinarily long (George died at 74 & Earl at 65) and his brief OTL Senate career (which largely consisted of antagonizing the rest of the Senate by constantly filibustering and otherwise delaying bills in order to get attention)...

    Lists of Heads of Government and Heads of State

    That's not technically true. All the Constitution says is that electors must vote for at least one candidate (either for president or vice president) who is not from their state. So electors in the 49 other states (plus DC) could vote for a Paul/Cruz ticket, but Texas electors would have to...

    Threadmarks Biden Would Have Won

    Basically "WI: Biden instead of Hillary in 2016?" The genesis of this little thought experiment was the reminder that Nate Silver of 538 wrote an article (listed in "sources") about how a sizable portion of Bernie Sanders' support in the 2016 primaries were what he called #NeverHillary voters...

    Threadmarks 2020 in 1988

    You're finally awake! Are you okay? That fall looked pretty bad. Global pandemic that's devastating the economy? Gerontocracy? Our institutions and democracy are being undermined by authoritarians led by a corrupt, delusional blowhard? What are you talking about? Come on, we're going to watch...

    Also, edited because I realized re-checking the calculations that the Democrats would have barely (Harris 41.80%, Cruz 41.65%, Trump 12.95%) won Alaska in this scenario. Which of course, needed its own note because taking Alaska gives the Democrats 420 electoral votes and turns people who spent...
