Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes VI (Do Not Post Current Politics or Political Figures Here)

It had been a rough time for the United States leading up to the 1980 election. The resignation of Nixon over Watergate and the ascension of his unelected Vice President George Bush to the White House had been a troubling time. Bush’s insistence on trying to hold the line in Vietnam up until the last minute left him woefully unpopular and paved the way for the rise of Senator George McGovern in the 1976 Democratic primaries. Senator McGovern had been the runner-up in 1972, narrowly losing to Muskie in the primaries and at the convention. While at the time he had seemed a radical and even in 1976 was made out to be one as he selected fellow antiwar Senator Mike Gravel to be his running mate, he managed to nonetheless crush President Bush in a landslide. McGovern promised many things: détente, amnesty for those who avoided the draft, universal healthcare, ethics in government. And to his credit he did try his damn hardest to make those promises reality. Unfortunately Congress was reluctant to play ball. Crises he inherited refused to go away and new ones dawned over the course of his term. Perhaps his assassination at the hands of the Manson acolyte Squeaky Fromme helped salvage his legacy in a sense in the end.

That left Vice President Gravel in the position of President of the United States going into 1979. Gravel shared the McGovern agenda. Unfortunately Gravel had one big problem that the sympathy following McGovern’s death couldn’t overcome: he was just not that good at being likeable, at least to his fellow politicians. His efforts to push through more direct democracy, better healthcare and strengthened voting rights floundered amidst a hostile relationship with Congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle. Gravel did make overtures to the party at large by selecting the union-friendly Adlai Stevenson III as his Vice President. But overall, Gravel’s friction with Congress coupled with unstable oil markets, problems in Iran and claims his nuclear policy mounted to appeasement seemed to leave an opening for the Republicans. The GOP had not been without its struggles—the legacy of Watergate loomed large and the party’s conservatives had become divided after former Governor Ronald Reagan died in a plane crash just after announcing a primary challenge to President Bush—sparking conspiracy theories on the fringes and leaving uncertainty of how to proceed for that wing of the party. Ultimately, conservatives would rally behind New York Senator James Buckley, affectionately known as ‘the Buck’ to his fans. The brother of William F. Buckley selected South Carolina Governor William Westmoreland as his running mate as a symbol of the revived American power he planned to bring.

There were other candidates on the ballot too—independent Tom McCall and Libertarian Eugene Burns each got around 3% of the vote for instance—but it was a Buckley vs. Gravel race. And it was clear from the get-go it would be a narrow one. Gravel had a number of advantages—incumbency and sympathy being at the top of the list, just ahead of wariness about Buckley leading America into another quagmire war on Westmoreland’s advice. But Buckley had some too. Many looked at the liberalism of McGovern and Gravel and had begun to balk. Things seemed like they might be moving a bit too fast. And their plans weren’t working—look at Iran! Look here at home! The competing advantages and disadvantages made the election widely seen as too close to call going in. And few could have seen the outcome. A few thousand votes in the state of New York—that was what it had come down to. And there would be many, many lawsuits and recounts to verify the results. But in the end, the initial call held. Despite a popular vote loss, it was James Buckley would be inaugurated as president on January 20, 1981. All Gravel could do was take solace in his popular vote win and keep his eyes on how things proceeded while devouring as many Grover Cleveland biographies as he could find…

The First Russian Republic is the name of the regime that existed in Russia after the December Revolution of 1825. On December 14 (26), 1825, liberal-minded guards overthrew the Romanov dynasty. A republic was proclaimed and serfdom abolished. All power passed to the Provisional Government, consisting of members of the secret "Northern Society". Poland and Finland immediately seceded from Russia, and in 1826 there was an uprising in Georgia and an independent Georgian Republic was proclaimed. In 1826, the generals loyal to the monarchy revolted in the south of Russia. The Civil War began. The monarchists (the so-called "Whites") were supported by the Holy Alliance. Austria, Prussia and Sweden began direct intervention in Russia. But to 1828, the Republic was able to repulse an attempt by the Whites and Austrians to take Moscow and regain control of Kiev and other cities of Ukraine.
In 1829 a peace treaty in Riga was signed between the Republic and the Holy Alliance. Austria and Prussia recognized the new government of Russia. In response, Russia ceded Bessarabia to Austria, and the Aland Islands to Sweden. Russia recognized the independence of Poland, Livonia and Finland (all three countries became monarchies). The Jewish Republic was created in Volyn. Georgia gained independence, but as a "sister republic" of Russia.
A few months after the end of the war, General Mikhail Orlov staged a coup. The first republic was replaced by the Russian State - a military dictatorship headed by Orlov.

So this is gonna be apart of an Infobox timeline.

The Failure of the Union has been debated by Scholars for quite some time. It is generally considered however that the main fault of the Short-Lived United States was the Article of Confederation being still around, despite it being seen as a Useless constitution. Meanwhile, Political Polarization rises, with the Federalist and Democratic-Republicans duking it out, making 2020 look like a peaceful event. Finally on January 13, 1801, In response to the Federalists winning the 1800 Election, Georgia announced its plans to succeed from the Union. Eventually in 1804, In response to the DR winning the election, New England also succeeded from the US, however, this was more violent as the United States would not want to lose any more territory. However, with the aid of Vermont (Never join the Union) and Britain, New England succeeded and kicked the Americans out. This pretty much ends the United States, as on May 1, 1807, Jefferson resigned from office aND ON May 9, 1807, congress voted to dissolve the union, becoming efficient on May 10th, thus ending the Failed Experiment that is the United States. The Few States that were generally friendly toward each other, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, voted to create the United Commonwealth of Columbia, as the successor state of the Union.
 
So I kinda decided to redo my election wikibox because I honestly didn't feel much satisfaction about it. This one I feel is atleast somewhat of an improvement (like having an actual map) but at the same time is somehow even more fucked than before given who exactly becomes president here.
