1: He did
Stop please. At this point, you're defending personal attacks against critics who the mods said were perfectly in line.1: He did
2: I'm not just point out what happened

The Dems ittl are very hawkish,if anything he'd criticize Ronnie and Rummy for being soft, other wise great stuff can't wait to see where this goesWhen the bombs start falling on Jackson you’ll wish that our Presidents weren’t as provocative as Reagan and Rumsfeld”, Joey sounded melancholy
Stop.Liking this so far. It's a shame that Congressman let the unpleasant people in his previous threads get to him. Somebody bothers me; I put them on ignore. But enough talk.
I enjoyed his portrayal of ww3 and look forward to this world where the US is utterly dominant.
Heck if this goes well, I might want in the future to "give my TL's away" after a while, to see where they go.If it makes you feel any better, most timelines end after 28 years anyways, or seriously deteriorate. This is a chance to throw new meat at a storyline. We will be following the Congressman's requests for certain portions of the stories, mainly in the US to ensure it fits the mold of where the story was going, but will fill in this mold with new and fresh ideas to keep the timeline interesting and avoid some of the issues it has had in the past.
If you look at was has happened in this thread already, we are getting various different stories about civilians, sports, and spies that would not be happening if The Congressman was the only author. At this time past the point of divergence, a little world-building is needed in all TL's, and honestly is probably just as interesting as the main story at this point of time (past freaking WWIII). In addition, updates are now more rapid as we have a team of writers who are kind enough to devote some of their time to properly wrapping up this story. Its been a blast to be part of this and a joy to see what people write.
I'd like to use this as an opportunity to welcome other potential writers. DM me or any other current writer if you'd like to be part of this product. Constructive criticism is also very welcome, especially for me, as this is the 1st TL I've been part of on this site.
If you want to use this thread to repeat past arguments or berate/insult the existing authors and fans get out of this thread and get a life.
Am I the only one who can't see the first picture?
At the Minnesota primary he would come into a close second to Ron Wyden, quickly knocking out Carey and Durbin in New Hampshire while coming in a narrow first above Clinton in Virginia. While Clinton would carry the Deep South and Wyden the West and upper Northeast, by Spring Iacocca would clean up the rest of the nation to clinch the Democratic nomination. To shore up his liberal support – given Iacocca’s moderate views and past conservatism made him mistrusted by the base of the party – he selected Pennsylvania congresswoman Lynn Yeakel, both a noted liberal and the first woman selected for a major party ticket. The Iacocca/Yeakel team would take the convention in Madison Square Garden by storm, exuberant Democrats simply tasting their first national victory since 1972.
