    Also Alex Murphy makes little sense as a Republican running mate in the context of his universe.

    Thank you very much for your constructive notes - I will admit that I don’t believe my attempt at creating is rooted too strongly in what could have happened in the development of the Carnation Revolution and the attempted 25 September coup but more a fear of what it could lead to. Likewise for Spain, it’s more a thought experiment to create a Venezuela-Colombia type relationship between the two countries in the wake of a Carnation Revolution that went too far rather than anything too real.

    I just thought they fit well and lets just say the 61st amendment from Demolition Man was passed allowing non natural born citizens to run.

    Very but after aliens, cyborgs, demons, and the fall of the Soviet Union due to a boxing match I think ttl's inhabitants have learned to go with it.

    Good point, I think I originally had him slated as Dem Running mate but I had a mix up when I actually made the wikibox

    Prussia (German: Preußen), officially the Free Republic of Prussia (German: Freie Republik Preußen) is a country located in Central and Eastern Europe. It is situated along the southern and southeastern shores of the Baltic Sea and is bordered by Poland to the south and west and Lithuania to the north and east. With a population of 5.3 million, it is the 118th most populous country in the world and the 20th most populous member of the European Union. Prussia's capital and largest city, with an estimated population of 1.5 million, is Preussiberg. Other major cities include Elbing, Allenstein and Gumbinnen. The country's official language is German and the vast majority speaks the Prussian dialect as their native language. Officially, the country also has two recognised languages – Lithuanian and Polish – thanks to the significant Lithuanian and Polish diasporas in south and east of the country. Its currency is currently the Prussian mark, although the country is expected to adopt the Euro as it has met EU financial criteria.

    Prussia entered the ranks of the great powers shortly after becoming a kingdom in the 18th century and exercised considerable influence in the 18th and 19th centuries. During the 18th century it had a major say in many international affairs under the reign of Frederick the Great. During the 19th century, Chancellor Otto von Bismarck united the German principalities into a "Lesser Germany", which excluded the Austrian Empire. At the Congress of Vienna (1814–15), which redrew the map of Europe following Napoleon's defeat, Prussia acquired rich new territories, including the coal-rich Ruhr. The country then grew rapidly in influence economically and politically, and became the core of the North German Confederation in 1867 and then of the German Empire in 1871.

    The Kingdom ended in 1918 along with other German monarchies that collapsed as a result of the German Revolution. In the Weimar Republic, the Free State of Prussia lost nearly all of its legal and political importance following the 1932 coup led by Franz von Papen. Subsequently, it was effectively dismantled into Nazi German Gaue in 1935. Nevertheless, some Prussian ministries were kept and Hermann Göring remained in his role as Minister President of Prussia until the end of World War II. In the aftermath of World War II, the province of East Prussia was occupied by the Soviet Union, who then granted the province independence from Germany as the People's Republic of Prussia, a Marxist-Leninist one-party state and satellite of the USSR. Between 1949 and 1990, the country was ruled by the People's Socialist Party of Prussia (VSP). The VSP was overthrown in the violent Prussian Revolution and the present-day Free Republic was established in its place in 1990. Since then, the country has experienced high population and economic growth – some of the highest levels in Europe – and joined NATO in 2004 and the European Union, after a successful referendum, in 2007.

    As well as being a member of the EU and NATO, Prussia is also a member of the Council of Europe, Schengen Agreement and the OECD. It is also a member of the Nordic-Baltic Nine and, as of 2013, the Nordic Investment Bank. According to the United Nations Human Development Index, Prussia is a "very high human development" country.

    "Romney is a robber baron. He has ensured himself a steady flow of capital at the expense of the workers, the petite bourgeoisie, and Massachusetts. His actions as a Secretary have shown his willingness to make money at the expense of America - German trade deal, anyone?"
    ~ Michael Ignatieff, June 30th of 2016

    "I- I think it is staggering that Romney accuses me of misconduct in my campaign. I am, and always have been, an enemy of party bosses, their lavish lifestyles and their business empires. Party bosses have rigged the Convention in Romney's favor. Statistics show that the vast majority of anti-Democratic ads running in Ohio, New York and Massachusetts right now are sponsored by the Reid, Hanna and Taft subsidiaries. Romney has the support of the party, but not the people."
    ~ Michael Ignatieff, July 19th of 2016

    "Does Ignatieff even understand what he's talking about? The steel deal of 2014 has benefitted both Germany and America - it has brought us millions of dollars. Yet Iggy's Boston Journal continues to produce falsehood after falsehood, claiming the Republican administration to be, quote, 'worse than Tsongas'. And this is not even mentioning how much this has helped housing and business..."
    ~ Millard Romney, July 1st of 2016

    "It is a fact that Misha Ignatieff is in the pocket of the Czar. KEEP RUSSKY BOZO OUT OF THE LAND OF THE FREE!"
    ~ Anti-Ignatieff ad posted on Banter, sponsored by "Thaddeus Koscziusko Wide-Awake Committee of Chicago", September 7th of 2016

    "Even though it has been ruled that there were no ties between my campaign team and St. Petersburg, baseless accusations of the Republican Party's establishment continue. It truly speaks volumes about the corruption of the 'Party of Lincoln' that they resort to such lowbrow attacks."
    ~ Michael Ignatieff, April 28th of 2018

    Extremely rough first go at this. Please do leave suggestions of who else could be added to this.

    Post World War Two, a growing intellectual movement in the 1950s arose in favor of communal and traditionalist values. It included heavy hitters like Russell Kirk, Richard Weaver, and L. Brent Bozell Jr.(Bill Buckley's brother in law). They were coined by fellow traditionalist Peter Viereck as the "new conservatives" owing to the fact that conservative at that point usually referred to anti-New Deal Republicans.

    New Conservatism would come to differ itself from New Deal Liberalism and the rising Fusionist(or "Freedom") Conservatism of Buckley and Frank Meyer by putting the community above the indivisual, and order and tradition above liberty. They were also distrustful of free markets and centralized regulation(although it should be noted that some like Viereck supported the New Deal due to it preventing radicalism), and came to support Wilhelm Röpke's social market economics, which favored decentralization, communities, state support of agriculture, industry, and the family through regulation of private corporations.

    The movement would go on to break all ties with the fusionists at the Chicago Summit and set up their own competing magazines and think tanks. It would also find favor with Republican political consultants like Mel Bradford and Pat Buchanan and former candidate Richard Nixon. When Nixon did assume the presidency, he would go on to usher in an era of "Nixonian Toryism", partially backed by "Paleo Democrats" who had come in favor of New Conservative policies.

    P.S. For those wondering why "Toryism" is such a big feature. Even though FDR regularly used the term "economic toryism" to describe anti-New Deal Republicans as elitist, a new appreciation of the British and their Tory Premier Winston Churchill led to the term having a positive annotation. The New Conservatives also drew heavy inspiration from Edmund Burke, especially following the American reprinting of his 1790 "Reflections on the Revolution in France" in 1950 which would find a home in every American household fearing communist revolution. That and "Nixonian Toryism" probably being the best thing ever.

    American History X

    When you're a president like Albert Johnson who wants to do some Jacksonian removal of certain "undesirable" groups, you need an Attorney General who'll be a yes-man to your genocidal waste on the soils of this so-called "free land". You'll need Ulysses S. Webb, Attorney General of California, one of the country's biggest fans of the eugenics system that the public is devouring like confectionery. Webb will makes sure everything's blurred in the tricky red tape of Washington, so when they begin asking why the Asians aren't returning from their "camps" or why the Jews have stopped having babies, the president will always have a confidant answer on the defense of this country's liberty. It's all in the security of freedom. And certainly, you reassure yourself on those rare nights with doubt in your fractured mind, it's what the Grand Old Party has always stood for...

    "And when will people stop judging the history of the Republican Party?! Men like Johnson and Webb kept our nation safe, they are the backbone of modern American conservatism!"
    "And the statements Webb gave on the Chinese you defended recently?"
    "I say if you're offended by that to get over yourself, you snowflake libtard!" -Conservation between Governor James L. Hart (R-TN) and journalist, 2007
