Given when the palace of the Soviets was to be constructed, the statue was supposed to be Lenin but it would have been change at the last minute to Stalin because of the architects great admiration of him and dislike of forced labor in cold weather
View attachment 615705Huey Long, former Governor now Senator of Louisiana, pictured while he officially declared live on television the formation of the American Union State, headquartered in the capital of his home state, New Orleans. He cited the takeover by General MacArthur and Jack Reed's "weakness in responding" and extreme socialist views as his main reasons for declaring the AUS. Notable commanders, like George Patton and Courtney Hodges, would later defect to his cause and form the General Staff of the Union State Army."General MacArthur's stance on putting the United States Congress at gunpoint to do his own desires and overthrowing a democratically elected government in a fair and square election is obviously unacceptable. This action breaks and compromises the very fabric foundation of this Republic. I have also cited severe concern for the lackluster action on the side of the deposed Jack Reed to cope up to this situation. I also despise his Bolshevik like fabrication of political views. While I despise the Army's action, I also despise the views and opinions of the Socialist Party of America. This day, it has come to our minds that this Federal Government and the elected government has failed us. Therefore, this day, I have officially talked with the governors of a few southern states, and they all agreed to focus their efforts of creating a new "American Union State". In short words, we are leaving this Union, and we will put it back together. Together, we will restore the greatness of this nation, and under which, we'll see a future of equal opportunity, and no more political squabbling."
The Union State was officially formed by the conclusion of the speech by the states of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, North Carolina, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and the northeastern part of Texas, who was convinced of Long's declaration. The first skirmishes between Longist and Federal troops would occur a few hours after the declaration.

But I speak as the mouthpiece of the leader of the Second American Revolution. Since the military under General Douglas MacArthur, and Senator Huey Long of the America First Union Party, has refused to recognize our LEGITIMATE win in this election, I think it's time we show them the worker's fighting spirit. Today, under decree from the elected now deposed President, Jack Silas Reed, I officially declare the official establishment of the Combined Syndicates of America, which shalt be headquartered in this very city full of the very fabric of the working class. Today, ladies and gentlemen, far and wide, from Seattle to Miami, marks the beginning of the liberation of the oppressed American working class. Today marks the beginning of the Second American Revolution, OUR revolution! With our hands stuck together as we face these Rockefeller loyalists, we will succeed in truly Breaking the Chains like the oppressed workers of Britain and France. Break The Chains! End the Rich Class' supremacy!"
Earl Browder, who spoke on behalf of Jack Reed who fell into a cold, during his famous declaration of the Second American Revolution and the formation of the Combined Syndicates of America, headquartered in Chicago. Browder shared centralization views but famously and relentlessly opposed the Totalist charter, with many Syndicalists comparing his rivalry with Totalist William Foster with the Jacobin-Sorelian rivalry in France.
The states of Michigan, Illinois, Iowa and Ohio would declare their secession from the Union a few hours after the speech. Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Long Island would be overunned by Socialist militias in the next few days. Minnesota would join the CSA by the end of the month.

Our country was founded to gain independence from tyrants and to protect our people from tyrants lurking amidst our viewpoints. Yet, General Douglas MacArthur has decided to take the mantle for himself and declare himself dictator of the United States of America in response to a democratic election not going his way. 2 others, Jack Reed and Huey Long, had taken it upon themselves to declare their persons as dictators of their declared governments. We will not have it. Today, my state government and the state governments of Washington and Oregon have taken upon ourselves to officially secede from this Union turned dictatorial mess. We officially declare the founding of the Pacific States of America. Our mission: protect Democracy in America, and fight the tyrants that is MacArthur, Long and Reed. All Californians, Washingtonians and Oregonians: rise up! Protect Democracy!"
Photo of California Governor Frank Merriam on live television announcing that the states of California, Oregon and Washington were leaving the Union to form the Pacific States of America in response to the military takeover of Washington DC and the United States by General MacArthur. Merriam held the mission to preserve American democracy after the Union State and Syndicates seceded. MacArthur would respond by stating that he was only protecting the Republic from Socialism and National Populism.
Most of the National Guard in the West defected to the PSA, and officially joined the Pacific States Armed Forces. At that moment, many experts agree, was the beginning of the American Civil War.

Military parade in Denver at the starting stages of General Omar Bradley's takeover of the Midwest and the formation of the Western Command Center. Bradley instigated a revolt against MacArthur in Washington along with a group of intellectual reconstructionists known as "The Wisemen" . Brad sees MacArthur as an unfit tyrant and an ineffective military leader who lacks the character needed to win the growing civil war. He took over all Midwestern operations, including all military units in the area, to the surprise of MacArthur. The latter branded the WCC as "a rebellious command structure".
"The General in Washington wants us to follow his orders for his own benefit. But how? How will he exactly ship orders from there to here and back in the danger zone of the Capitol Corridor? We are cut off from the District of Columbia and we have a long way to go to get there. But never fear, dear soldiers and citizens of the Midwest. I have taken things into my own hands. Along with my cabinet of intellectuals and generals, we have decided on a course of action: we will officially secede from the command structure in Washington and we will form our own government. In other words, the entirety of the Midwest will now be under my direct command. We promise to protect you and your children from the dangers of the Longists, the Syndicalists, the rebelling self declared Democratic government in the West Coast, and of course, Douglas MacArthur's regime. Effective immediately."

Longist forces killed 90 demonstrators and injuring almost a hundred more, in a swift military crackdown. This would become one of the main reasons for the official beginning of the Black Revolt in the south.

"We demand freedom from oppression! But that is not going to happen under the tyrannical and white rule of Huey Long and his so called "America First Union Party". We are here to show them that no matter what the color of our skin is, we CAN, and we WILL, get the equality and freedom of speech and expression we deserve! No longer shall we chaff under the boot of the AFP, and no longer we must live in fear because of the Silver Legion and the Minutemen lurking amongst us and around these corners of streets and avenues. With our hands bonded together, side by side, we can face their tanks, cars, guns and aircraft. Our spirit of freedom will set us free. We don't need weapons of war that will kill more than save more. Our courage and resilience against our oppressors is the best weapon we can offer in response to their military materiel."
