    My take on an American version of Élite (granted it's in my Parliamentary US TL, but what can you do? *shrug*)

    On a side note, can't wait for Élite S2

    1864 US Presidential Election
    This is an alternate 1864 in which the Confederates win in Gettysburg. Basically, after their win in Gettysburg, Britain and France recognize the Confederacy and as a result, the Confederacy kicks the Union's butt, taking all their lost territory, New Mexico (which they renamed Arizona), Kentucky, and West Virginia. The reason they didn't take DC was because it was too well-defended, with most of the Union forces focusing on recapturing their own territory and defending DC. Long story short, everyone was sick of the Civil War and just wanted peace. As such, Lincoln's determinism to end the war in a Union victory was seen as delusional, and McClellan was able to portray himself as a realist.

    Edit: This is also a test of me using HTML to make wikiboxes. I'll probably switch between spreadsheet and HTML, depending on which I find more convenient.

    Based on an idea I had a while ago about French Canadians dominating Michigan.

    A Huronian general election was held on April 7th, 2015 to elect members of the National Assembly of Huronia. The left-wing autonomist Société Huronienne led by Gérard Pierre secured a majority government of 70 seats, while the incumbent right-wing autonomist Union Nationale led by Thérèse Linda Landrieu was reduced to only 30 seats, marking the lowest seat total for the union since the landslide election of 1983. The majority anglophone right-wing integrationist Conservatives decreased in their share of the popular vote, but won 4 more seats. The separatist Nation Huronienne led by Abdul El-Sayed gained a single seat, the party's first seat not in the provincial capital of Détroit. Early opinion polls showed Union Nationale winning another majority government, but the party rapidly declined in polls thanks to the Grand Blanc water crisis, which the Landrieu government was largely believed to have caused. Society leader Gérard Pierre successfully capitalized on the crisis, painting Landrieu as the direct cause of it. The new government was inaugurated two weeks later, being the first Society government since 2005.

    Another post for my Gran Lago timeline, where a massive lake in Southern California doesn't dry up and sticks around to the modern day (with some help). This time, featuring a curbstomp! The thread for this timeline can be found here.

    The Californian-American War was a short conflict between the United States of America and the Republic of California when the United States intervened on the side of American migrants who rose in revolt against the Californian government. Tensions have been growing between the white settlers and the Californian government since the Gold Rush first began in 1849. Since then over 70,000 settlers from the United States, especially after the Mexican-American War ended in 1853, traveled westward over the Rockies to settle in the northern part of the Republic of California. The white settlers who came to look for gold overwhelmed the local authorities through their sheer numbers and any attempts by California to govern them were ignored.

    In the fall of 1855, the President of California Andrés Cervera ordered the small Californian Army north in an attempt to restore order. The situation quickly deteriorated into clashes between the Army and various militias formed by the white settlers. When Cervera started to mobilize more troops, the white settlers rose in revolt, declaring breakaway state called the Republic of Eureka. James K. Polk who just led the country out of the Mexican-American War a few years before, saw another opportunity to seize much of the Pacific Coast and acquire the region's large gold deposits. Riding high on patriotism from the Mexican-American war, the President found little difficulty in approving a war especially against such a weak target.

    The war was a short but bloody affair for the Californians who were outnumbered by the superior American Army. Most of the American casualties were sustained by the ad hoc Eurekian militias in their clashes against the Californian Army. The Republic of California did receive some material aid from the United Kingdom because of some investments in the new Republic and concern over the tactics of American expansionism. After the war, the defeated Republic was forced to secede Eureka, which comprised most of the white majority north. Eureka was granted statehood almost immediately, but Congress did not want to admit a state with over 120 thousand Catholic Hispanics. Instead the Department of California was formed, a territory directly administered by the United States Army. The invasion, cultural discrimination, and lack of political representation until 1912 left a lasting legacy of resentment and bitter nationalism. Today California continues to fiercely protect its cultural identity, and it is the only U.S. state to have a large independence movement.

    You probably have questions.

    Why'd you take so long?

    Where's this going?

    Couldn't this have been broken into multiple parts? yeah probably

    But in all seriousness, sorry for taking so long with this next part. Anyway, here it is.


    Even after the disaster that was the Chicago Summit and after losing the Mont Pelerin Society, the proponents of Freedom Conservatism could claim that there movement was on the up and up. Young Americans for Freedom grew by dozens of chapters each year. The National Review was becoming a household name in American journalism. Think tanks like the American Enterprise Institute and the Hoover Institute were churning out advisors and media personalities at a regular basis. The names of Buckley, Goldwater, and Reagan become more well known among America's politicos. The New Conservatives would not take this lying down.

    A united traditionalist editorial had been in the works for years, with none other than Buckley's brother in law Brent Bozzel Jr. being the leading force behind it. Thus, two years after the launch of National Review, Triumph would enter the picture.

    Screen Shot 2019-05-21 at 3.23.52 PM.png

    While lambasted by some a merely a "Catholic National Review", Triumph did establish itself as a magazine that could go beyond politics. While there were political news stories and opinion pieces(the headline article of the first issue was a reprint of Peter Viereck's 1940 classic "But - I'm a Conservative") many articles did touch on other subjects. Various pieces on Roman Catholic thought and the latest Vatican news, an analysis of the social-economic effects of urban planning by Richard Weaver and his disciples, profiles of small American towns, and at least one article per issue written by a fellow of the Mont Pelerin Society speaking on communalism or social market theory.

    At first, the magazine ran on limited circulation numbers due to the relative power of National Review. However, Triumph soon may headway within Catholic America after a vocal endorsement by Bishop Fulton Sheen on his nationally syndicated program. Midwesterners appreciated the attention given to small town and rural issues. Many Democrats would make Triumph their periodical of choice, in part due to a lack of a nationally syndicated mainstream liberal alternative, but also in part due its emphasis on issues like community, faith, and economic populism, things that united the Democratic coalition.

    The journal would also not be as harsh on the Kennedy administration as others on the American right. They would praise Kennedy's urban renewal plan, his quick action in dealing with the 1960 recession, his streamlining of social security and food stamp programs, his cautious approach to the civil rights issue, and his diplomatic resolve in dealing with the Cuban missile crisis. Writers would however not shy away from criticizing Kennedy's measures to have federally funded education, his push for increased defense spending, his support for contraception, and his sending of evermore soldiers and advisors to South Vietnam, especially the U.S. government's refusal to stop the overthrow of Ngo Dinh Diem.

    Such praise for Triumph was also the cause of disapproval from their fusionist opponents. Buckley and Frank Meyer would portray the magazine and its movement as merely a front for New Dealers that held on to the reactionary and nativist instincts of Jacksonianism and Southern segregationists. However, both would disapprove of the Johnson administration, both being opposed to his planned Great Society and civil rights legislation. There reasons however differed. The New Conservatives did so from a reformist and traditionalist perspective, arguing that welfare and taxation programs should be used to assist the formation of families and protect and nurture local communities and business instead of centralizing healthcare, education, and poverty programs in Washington. The Freedom conservatives believed that more spending and taxation on domestic programs would hurt private industry and divert resources from the international struggle against communism, while also noting that poor African American inner cities were being underrepresented in the planned funding for the programs.

    Going into 1963, both parties wanted to solidify their movements. For the Freedom Conservatives, organization and promotion would strengthen the upcoming run of Senator Barry Goldwater in the 1964 Republican primaries and solidify their ideological control over the Republican Party. For the New Conservatives, it was a chance to influence political operatives and the grass roots alike, as well as to see which politicians would grab on to their traditionalist ideas.

    "Empire of Liberty", with an overt reference to Thomas Jefferson's quote of America as its title, would be a collection of essays from Buckley and his compatriots. They ranged on a whole load of varied topics, from politics, to economics, to culture, to history. Analysis of American customs, reviews over the past wars in America's history, noting the developments in American political thought, something for everyone. The uniting factor of all of these was the creation of the idea of "Americanism", that America was an exceptional country in terms of its emphasis on individualism, free markets, and equality. The book was noted as the first major publication that featured the written work of economist Milton Friedman, who spoke on the American tradition of free trade.

    Screen Shot 2019-05-25 at 6.40.33 PM.png

    In response, the traditionalists would come out with their own essay book, using their deep literary bench to their advantage. The book titled "Platoons of Life" would focus on the institutions that their ideological predecessor Edmund Burke focused on. The selected essays would focus either on family, community, or church. The book would introduce to millions of Americans the ideas of social market economics and have a history of Southern Agrarianism by original Nashville Agrarians Robert Penn Warren, John Crowe Ransom, Donald Davidson, and Allen Tate. It also put a heavy emphasis on linking American political tradition to British political tradition. Two noteworthy new comers were Republican journalist Pat Buchanan and Republican speech writer Mel Bradford, both of whom would support Goldwater's upcoming campaign, a sign of growing New Conservative influence.

    Screen Shot 2019-05-25 at 6.41.07 PM.png

    Both books would sell well, although "Platoons of Life" would pull ahead due to the well known figures attached to it. As it stood, phase one of consolidation for both movements were complete, they had each completed their respective holy scripture(indeed, in some stores one could get a free Ignatius Bible on purchase of "Platoons of Life"), they needed organizations to find people to support such beliefs. Here was the bread in butter of a true politico like Buckley. He knew who in congress would join his new caucus and how it would be formed. But primarily, he knew what its purpose was, set up an infrastructure of politicians and Republican operatives in Washington to help Goldwater's run for president. And thus, a caucus was born.

    Screen Shot 2019-05-26 at 3.04.41 PM.png

    There had been ideological groupings in congress before, most notably the still chugging conservative coalition between fiscally conservative and pro-business Southern Democrats and Northern Republicans, but nothing before was as well organized, well financed, and well defined as the Liberty Caucus. A collection of mainly new generation conservative Republicans centered in states west of the Mississippi, Buckley's own slice of the Republican Party soon made headlines as a grouping that could smash the hold of the Eastern Establishment on the GOP and bring about the collapse of the current party system.

    The New Conservatives would be less ambitious, at least for now. They didn't want to tied down in any political party or elected official before they knew if their ideas would latch on, so their caucus would be more loose for the time being.

    Screen Shot 2019-05-26 at 6.43.47 PM.png

    Kirk and his band would instead focus on influencing state and local political parties, both Republican and Democrat, based on a bipartisan push for New Conservative policies for local communities. After all, localism was a fundamental principal of their movement. And it paid off. Mel Bradford split time between speech writing for the planned Goldwater campaign and for local meetings. Buchanan proved useful in in establishing the organization in Missouri, where his Globe-Democrat ran their papers. As the election season in the summer of 1964 began, there was 1,856 Democrats and Republicans across the country, from state legislatures, to county assemblies, to municipal councils. It also began paying dividends to. In Florida and Minnesota, local New Conservatives implemented ordinances that preserved local wetlands and limited development in rural areas. In Pennsylvania and North Dakota, blue laws were strengthened, especially in regards to alcohol. Various state legislatures would at the urging of their resident New Conservative alliances would pass laws that helped establish new pregnancy centers and finance worker pensions.

    Later on, as television began to dominate American life more and more, both New and Freedom Conservatives would recognize its potenial. "Firing line" would make Buckley and his debating skills household figures. "The State of America" would take a more calm approach with Russel Kirk and later Pat Buchanan more soft cadence, often going on sight to discuss with ordinary people a certain issue in America, with debating a lesser function of the show. There were plans to include debates, mainly for congressional and state elections, but budgeting wouldn't get there for another decade.

    I've been fascinated with Scandinavian politics for a long time now, so I decided to make an election for a unified Scandinavia, this time with a whole article to go along with it and everything. I used @Erinthecute's German election as both an inspiration and a guide for this

    France goes ahead with the Algerian partition plans (i guess it would need a significantly earlier POD where france's relations with the arab world is irreconcilliable for them to put a partition plan into action), the region between Oran and Algiers included stay french, while a corridor links it with the french departements of the Sahara, effectively cutting Algeria in two, the smaller, western part eventually falls into chaos.

    The Central Californian Water Agency (Agencia Central de Agua de California) is a regulatory and environmental protection agency centered around the Gran Lago and is one of the most controversial government agencies in California today. On average 20% to 40% of the water that flows into the Gran Lago from the Colorado River would evaporate into the air. Thus to maintain its current water level, the lake needs enough inflow to offset evaporation. The Governor of California in the late 1920s Juan Ortez, realized the need for an agency to prevent water overuse which would lead to a drop in the water levels harming the lake, the wildlife, and the people who depend on it. The Agency was formed in 1930, to manage water usage around the lake. In 1958, the Agency’s authority was expanded to include the power to regulate land-use around the lake. Over the decades since the agency's mission has expand to include environmental protection by controling water quality.

    Its governing board is appointed by various city councils, municipal governments, and the Republic of California. To achieve their mission the Agency delegates and sets water usage through a “water budget, a limit on how much water an entity that uses water from the Colorado River or the lake a year. Fines can be imposed if an entity goes over the water budget. In addition, the Agency must ensure that future land development would not place overwhelming strain on the water resources, and so must approve or deny plans for future development. Recently the Agency has aggressively pushed for the adoption of low water use washing machines and similar appliances as well as a campaign to learn sustainable water use habits.

    Since the Central Californian Water Agency must regulate the amount of water individuals can use, in addition to regulate how individuals develop their property, controversy and criticism are very common. The Agency must balance the interests of farmers to the south of the lake, waterfront businesses and homeowners, 2 municipal water districts, four municipalities, the Republic of California, environmentalists, scientists, and people south of the lake. Property rights groups representing homeowners and developers have repeatedly sued the Agency to weaken or eliminate the Agency's powers over water and land use. In the 2011-2016 drought, the Agency was sued over 25 separate instances by a dozen different entities over its allocation of the water budget and its denial of future development.

    The United Commonwealth (UC), officially the United Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Wales, and sometimes referred to as Britain, is a sovereign country located off the north-western coast of the European mainland. The United Commonwealth includes the island of Great Britain as well as a number of smaller islands, including Orkney and Shetland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. It does not share a land border with any other country, instead it is surrounded by the Channel Sea to the south, the Celtic Sea to the south-west, the North Sea to the east and north and the Irish Sea to the west. As of 2019, it has an estimated population of just over 63.1 million, giving it a population density of 276.7 people per square kilometre.

    The UC is a federal parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy. The current monarch is King Charles III, who has reigned since 2006 following the abdication of Queen Elizabeth II. The United Commonwealth's capital and largest city is London, a global city and financial centre with an urban area population of 9.9 million. Other major urban areas in the UC include Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff, Liverpool and Leeds. The UC consists of three constituent countries – England, Scotland and Wales – but since 1964 it has been a federal country consisting of a number of regions. In total, there are 12 devolved regions (Anglia, Cornwall, Cumbria, Lancashire, London, the Midlands, Northumbria, Scotland, the South East, the South West, Wales and Yorkshire), each with their own sub-national legislatures with powers over a number of policy areas. Both the Scottish Assembly and the Welsh Assembly have a greater level of devolution than the English regions due to their unique national identities. The federal Parliament of Great Britain remains superior to all regional legislatures and has sole responsibility over areas such as foreign policy, home affairs and justice.

    The medieval conquest and subsequent annexation of Wales by the Kingdom of England, followed by the union between England and Scotland in 1707 to form the Kingdom of Great Britain, and the union in 1801 of Great Britain with the Kingdom of Ireland created the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. Following British defeat in World War I, the island of Ireland seceded from the Kingdom, and the UK was reformed as the United Commonwealth in 1922. Between the 16th century and 1920 the UC's predecessor the UK had a large colonial empire that spanned the globe, making it for a time the world's supreme global superpower, but this empire was broken up after World War I, with British colonies either becoming independent or being transferred to other powers. Since then, it has remained a great power, with considerable economic, cultural, military, scientific and political influence internationally. British influence can be observed in the language, culture and political systems of many of its former colonies, including the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

    The United Commonwealth is a highly developed country and has the world's tenth-largest economy by purchasing power parity. It has a high-income economy and has a very high Human Development Index rating, ranking 11th in the world. It was the world's first industrialised country and the world's foremost power during the 19th and early 20th centuries. It is a recognised nuclear weapons state and is ninth in military expenditure in the world. It has been a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council since its first session in 1950. It has been a major member of the European Community, having joined the organisation's predecessor – the European Economic Cooperation Agreement (ECCA) – in 1966. The United Commonwealth is also a member of the Council of Europe, the G8, the G20, the Amsterdam Treaty Organisation (ATO), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Interpol and the World Trade Organisation (WTO).
