    Both Ike and Lafollette are good choices for President, though Lafollette, if he wins and gets a friendly Congress, may get to do more lasting reforms with a positive impact on the life of TTL average US citizen.

    The former Commander of US forces in Kurdistan and Army Chief of Staff was well known to the American public and most people had a positive response. His running mate was well known to the people of California. His Grandfather had been a Confederate Civil War hero and he was a hero of the war against the Mexican Dictator. William had attended public school in California but had also gone back east to attend VMI. He had graduated from the Virginia Military Institute with out standing grades and had been offered a regular Commission in the US Army. He had served for 5 years and returned to California where he had joined the National Guard. He had served in Kurdistan and was elected to Congress. He served 8 years before running for Governor as the Nationalist Party Candidate.
    Governor Moseby was selected to be Vice President to Balance the Ticket.

    Mr Lafollete condemned US intervention and promised to removed US forces. President Taft condemned the Democrat Nominee for his irresponsible statements and ordered an end to briefing of the man. The Kurdish Ambassador responded to the Democrats position by pointing out that the agression was by the Turkish state crossing the internastionally recognized borders of Kurdistan.

    A congressional resolution passed the House 300 to 12 and the Senate 80 to 12 authoring the President to use what ever force was necessary. The US now asked the British government for the use of Naval and air bases on Cyprus. The Secretary of Defense issued orders calling up the Marine reservist and for the deployment of the 10th Mountain, 1st Armored, 36th Infantry Division (Texas NG) plus additional support units.

    The Kingdom of Denmark and the Kingdom of Norway both applied to join NATO. President Eisenhower continued with the American Highway Construction Program. The Administration and the Congress were looking at what remained to be done in the recovery from THE FALL. The United States population was slowly growing hitting 84million in 1953.

    The Eisenhower Administration was determined to complete the last of the major projects remaining from the reconstruction of the United States with regard to The Fall. A lot of work had been done and a great deal of Florida had been reconnected thanks to the largest reconstruction project ever attempted. The Eisenhower Administration was going to carry out the final plan.. Huge amounts of stone from New England combined with Millions of tons of concrete would reunite Florida. While it would not be the same as it was before it would be better than it was.
