-Anarchism: probably same as OTL before Obama.Okay then, what about anarchism, communism, monarchism, conservativism, libertarianism, and progressivism then?
The timeline is finally coming to a close. Considering that you've been asked by numerous observers including myself about what the rest of politics and pop culture looks like in this universe and you've given some brief hints about it you could cover this stuff in a much more in-depth profile.The 2020 Epilogue- Elections Then and Now
The elections of 2020 would be an interesting one for the Americans. Many see it on whether or not it will make or break the growing Neoprogressive Ea that was happening in the Anglosphere and possibily beyond it as well. Many look for a possibility of direction a year prior. Back in the Spring of 2019, the British elections were being held, with many wondering whether the coalition government under Corbyn's Labour party and the SNP would hold onto it or not. Some wondered that perhaps Corbyn may expand their hold and create a coalition government with the Liberal Democrats. However, the big shock came when instead, the Labour Party would get a noticeable majority within Parliament and with the Liberal Democrats taking a smallish bite from the SNP and a larger one from the Tories, with the Tories suffering a loss in defeat. Many former SNP voters switched to Corbyn's Labour with some going to the Lib Dems instead. The Tories meanwhile lost a bulk of support and seats. Most of them went over to the Lib Dems though some ended up even going to Labour. This was quite the surprise for many people and various scholars and pundits speculated various reasons and looked through the data. The Tory's greatest strength was in its ruthless adaptation to various circumstances and situations to maintain unity. As long as unity maintained, order would be restored and maintain the look of being needed for the British peoples and to maintain power. However, the circumstances from 2014 caused fractures that called the whole party into question briefly and their attempts to stonewall the Labour failed. They hoped to endure Corbyn and not concern themselves too much. However, Corbyn's radical rhetoric began appealing to people more and more. This intensified drastically with the rise of the Sanders Administration, who's own brave reforms and charged rhetoric in the people reached across the pond. It influenced Corbyn to go for grand ideals such as leading the call to greater reforms within the European Union along with improving the United Kingdom for everyone's sake. The world changed faster than what the Tories predicted and unable to adapt sufficiently. The Tories' victory streak through the ages was by identifying what the nation wanted and how to offer it faster than the others, but in a time where more radical dieas were being taken seriously, they slipped up.
And that perhaps goes back to the United States. While the Republican Party worked on a similar principle of unity, it was more dogmatic in its insistence to ideals of a growing bygone era, especially as how it seem to go against what was realistically feasible. All of them were united under certain goals and beliefs though it meant the party was prone to periods of populist rhetoric and changes that would've driven the party futher right if things were different. The Republican Party has a set of beliefs associated with it, but this ironclad dedication meant that it was easier to paint them as the foe of such and the party began cannibalizing itself as the old guard was forced out and left a vacuum that was still trying to be filled. Many have noted that most of the successful newer Republicans were former Democrats, either in voting history or in stance. The Democrats meanwhile were being overrun with the new young blood who advocated for more radical changes for the benefit of people and leading the charge to attack the former power structures that maintained political parties such as certain lobbyists and politically-driven think tanks. The new "Progressive Wing" had grown even stronger and showed no signs of slowing down, working to cement their objectives and furthermore, make changes to the system to ensure their goals would not be undone by the vestiges of the old guard or their successors who benefitted from the unfair prior system.
The Democrat primaries saw the party divided in supporting Sanders. While the progressive wing was fully behind him, the moderates were divided on whether to run a less radical candidate or remain sided with Sanders, especially as the changing political climate was forcing them under further scrutiny and judgment for their choices and the reasonings why, including associations with nonpolitical entities such as corporations. Governor Barack Obama ran once more in the Democrat primaries along with others such as Elizabeth Warren and Andrew Yang. Some tried to appeal to moderatist sensabilities while others promoted themselves as the potential bridge between the more hardline progressives and the moderates. However, even with this and a surprising show of support from a large group of the Democrat party officials, Sanders maintained a massive showing support of the people. His results spoke for themselves after all. Meanwhile, social media was a somewhat vicious battlefield in picking which candidate, especially in comparing their pasts. While people change, observing past phenomena did bring skepticism and questioning. Obama would drop out of the race first on and support Warren though while Warren did come pretty close, various aspects of her past turned some voters off along with the growing concerns that she was just a political opportunist and not a good follow-up to Sanders' work. Yang meanwhile did get a good following, but was relatively new compared to the others and thus did not rise as much, though it did get the people talking. Ultimately, the Democrat candidate would remain the incumbant Bernie Sanders. However, the surprise came with the news he was changing his running mate. Apparently, Vice President Tammy Baldwin had announced that while she was happy and proud to serve as the VP in the Sanders Administration, she noted the need for change and after some talk with Sanders, noted that she would not be vice president should Sanders win. Questions briefly lingered on who Sanders would run alongside against though it was quickly answered in the form of Nina Turner, a co-chair of his reelection campaign and close partner with the administration. Some have noted that this may have been done to help draw more African-American support for Sanders, especially with the growing issues affecting them. Many also proposed that she was being trained to become his successor in the next couple decades or so.
The Republican primaries meanwhile displayed the ongoing search of solid identity for the GOP though some have noted that some certainties were the continued shift to centralism along with the potential of it becoming a big-tent political party in the long run. Despite this, many of the candidates were still among the older ones, promoting the GOP as out-of-touch, unsure of itself and wary, at least among the youth. They maintained a stronger following among the older folk, especially given the prominence of women running for it. Lisa Murkowski, Susin Collins and Olympia Snowe were all some of the big names there and who were taken pretty seriously as potential candidates for the presidency. They were among the big three and some other candidates running were John Kaisch and Bill Weld. While the run was pretty smooth and free of much talk compared to the Democrats, it was still notable in the sense of showing whether or not the GOP had a future, especially if the ranked choice voting legislation succeeded in the future, which would either save the GOP or crush it entirely. Ultimately though, Lisa Murowski would end up winning the presidency after a close tie with Susan Collins, with Collins becoming her running mate over.
The 2020 general election would be incumbent President Bernie Sanders with new running mate Nina Turner against the Republicans' Lisa Murkowski and running mate Susan Collins. Bill Weld would become the candidate for the Libretarian party after dropping early on from the GOP and going back to the Libretarians. Meanwhile, the Green Party focused more on state-level elections and more local levels to build up their support base.

Unless you are aware of the extensive history of the poster who was admonished, including the fact that he came off a kick YESTERDAY for relentless pestering authors of numerous time lines, it may seen a bit extreme.
Ban him if he's never going away with stuff like this. And my apologies for not checking his past.Unless you are aware of the extensive history of the poster who was admonished, including the fact that he came off a kick YESTERDAY for relentless pestering authors of numerous time lines, it may seen a bit extreme.
Once you are aware it is actually quite mild.
The Nordic nations are doing as well as OTL though Sweden wouldn't be dealing with the rise of a certain political party. Beyond that, probably a bit further ahead in renewable energy. Finland probably becoming even more wary of Russia.How are the Nordic countries of Greenland, Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Estonia doing ITTL?
Same with the Oceanic island nations? How is Nauru?
How are Equitorial Guniea, the Congo, and Eritrea?
Probably at the same rate if not a bit sooner. Though it would definitely have a bit more investment to be more widespread. I remember when that happened.Would the digital television transition in the United States progress at the same rate it is/was in our timeline, or would it progress slower/faster than it did in our timeline?
