    Ron Paul may not like the federal government getting into people's private lives, but he's perfectly fine with the state governments doing so.:rolleyes:

    Well they're on the way back up with the Bull Moose Party ;)
    Trump is a Liberty Conservative ITTL, but he won't be running for public office. Not that we won't see him again ;)

    Plenty. The Democrats did relatively well, though the GOP held up decently. Sam Yorty won reelection, as did Antonin Scalia of Texas and John Heinz of PA. Spiro Agnew won his fifth term as MD Governor.

    Yeah. He seems like he would never be a Democrat.

    I could see him being a pundit. Especially since there won't be a Fox News driving most Americans of a certain age from "reasonable center-right types" to "buying gold bullion in preparation for when the US is invaded by a coalition of Iran, ACORN, and the Dixie Chicks".

    I also have to ask about what happened to Ted Kennedy, Roger Ailes now that he never got involved with the Nixon campaign, Lawton Chiles and Brendan Byrne.

    Thanks a bunch!

    I still feel something like FOX will pop up.

    I mean, George Lincoln Rockwell has a fuckin' radio show.

    Remember, William F. Buckley is itching for another venture ;)
    Ted Kennedy was JFK's Chief of Staff, but never recovered from being arrested for solicitation in 1968 and sinking his brother's campaign against Wallace. He became an alcoholic and died in a DUI accident in 1985. The price for saving JFK and RFK :teary:

    Roger Ailes is currently working at National Review in the "Future Project's Department" ;)

    Lawton Chiles is the Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee

    Brenden Byrne was Governor of New Jersey for one term (replaced by Thomas Kean in 1981 as OTL, but elected in 1977 instead of 1973). He's preparing to run against Progressive Bill Bradley in 1984
