I had him getting voted out earlier in my headcanon, but I decided to change it to make the world more interesting.I thought he was voted out in your headcanon.
I'll admit I don't know much about him, but would he still be on trial like in otl?Yeah the LaRouche presidency will be pretty cursed. Bill Gates in my headcanon still creates Microsoft, but is brought out by IBM (which is a government owned corporation as it had been nationalized by a Socialist President). Gates basically works as a high level government employee and becomes the head of the Department of Technology under President Hoffa, and is in charge of creating the Windows operating system (which is owned by the government) and launching the World Wide Web. LaRouche chooses Bill Gates as his running mate due to Gates' household name recognition, especially among the youth.
Probably not ... in this time line since he is a major figure within the Socialist Party, he is much too saavy to get caught for financial impropriety. However, that doesn't mean he won't be doing corrupt deals (especially when Hoffa becomes President).I'll admit I don't know much about him, but would he still be on trial like in otl?
I can very much see this as what happened, did the US have a simile policy for their own Hispanic troops? Which could ironically put these two groups against each other in eastern theaters in an effort to not pit them against each other in the westView attachment 869664
Confederate conscripts from Chihuahua and Sonora, in Virginia, ca. 1917.
The loyalty of Mexican Émigrés in the CSA was questioned during the Great War. Many of these Émigrés had disliked the Second Mexican Empire, a Confederate ally during the Great War. Despite the early invasion of Sonora by US forces early in the war, conscripts from Chihuahua and Sonora were sent to the eastern theater not to have any conflicting loyalties, as most Mexican Émigrés in the USA were in the state of New Mexico. This policy was kept by Jake Featherston, with Freedomite organizations and later the army having any Hispanic members swear an oath of loyalty to the CSA.
US version of this policy.I can very much see this as what happened, did the US have a simile policy for their own Hispanic troops? Which could ironically put these two groups against each other in eastern theaters in an effort to not pit them against each other in the west
This makes a lot of sense, I actually wonder about how Mexican American Identity will be shaped in this TL. More wars between America and Mexico on North American soil, the identity of the Mexican-Confederates shaped by Confederate ideology and a Mexico that is a monarchy is this TL.US version of this policy.

Hispanic Americans in Canada, ca. 1916.
With the outbreak of the Great War in 1914, Mexican Émigrés in the USA were enthusiastic about the war as they saw it as an opportunity to topple the Second Mexican Empire. However, the US government, much like its southern neighbor, was also worried about the loyalties of Émigrés. After the invasion of Sonora was called off in mid-1914, Mexican Émigrés were sent to the eastern theater. However, after an incident in Maryland, where a division defected to the Confederates because many in the Confederate division were Hispanic, the Hispanic Americans were then redeployed to Canada and later to Utah when it rebelled in 1915.
During the Second Great War, American units that had Hispanics in them didn't fight the Confederates to ensure they wouldn't have any conflicting loyalties. Hispanic Americans mainly fought in Utah, Canada, and Baja California.
I get you’re trying to improvise with this pic, but is she supposed to be sitting or standing right behind him?
