    Bryan and Hitler end up as die-hard adversaries due to Hitler’s embrace of evolution in humans as proof of his racial and America-centric views, which, incidentally is precisely why Bryan was opposed to it.

    Bryan and Hitler.

    I'd imagine that Coolidge still wins a landslide in 1924, and that Hoover would still win in 1928, but by a considerably narrower margin.

    TTL Hitler being a practising Catholic and all is likely to be inspired by Alfred E Smith

    I will vote for the chicken farmer talking to the posion dwarf.

    Although, as someone who is very interested in the formation of the Republic of Ireland, I am highly interested to see that the "Big Fella" is still alive and well.

  5. Threadmarks: The Four Meetings: Hitler and the Great Commoner - Part One

    The Cornhusker state was the epicenter of America in its purest form, both physically and metaphysically. Within it's majestic plains it sang the soul of America: with its bountiful homesteads a reminder of both the settler culture and immigrant story, its manifold farms a testimony to both the Jeffersonian farming spirit and the state's vitality in modern commerce, and its diverse churches illuminating both Columbia's piety and plurality; Nebraska was the kernel of America.

    The state's motto, "Equality before the law", was best exemplified through Prairie statesman William Jennings Bryan. The Silver Platte Orator, still maintaining his soulful vigor, nonetheless was past his prime. Now 63, Bryan was only able to muster half the energy he had exhibited in the Chicago convention 27 years ago. Half his duty as the common man's champion was to ensure that the new generation of genuine American populists were ready to tackle the upcoming generation's social and political ills. A promising successor had been found, whose name was -

    "Adolph. Adolph Hitler, Mr. Secretary."

    "Welcome to my humble abode, Senator Hitler."

    "Why thank you sir."

    "No need to thank me. Young whippersnappers like you are blessings."


    "Hitler was taken aback by the generous words of America's forefront populist. Little did he know that former Secretary Bryan's quick personal amiability was not on the basis of the Texan's personal charm and allure but based upon the Great Commoner's latest mission." - David McCullough


    "I am glad you could find the time, Mr. Hitler."


    "But of course sir."


    "Be honest, Mr. Hitler, what is the first thing that pops up in your mind when you hear of me?"


    "I envision a courageous man who fought tooth and nail for what he knew was right."


    "Exactly. Not a success."


    "But sir, I did not imply you were a failu-"


    "No, there was nothing wrong in your original response. It was … accurate."


    Hitler froze. He sensed a developing change in the conversation.

    "I'm an old man now, Hitler. And as an old man, I have reflected about my life time and time again. I understand my mistakes, my past mishaps, and for that I am tenfold wiser."


    Hitler cautiously approved, holding back a gulp. He did not wish to disturb or insult the great man in front of his eyes.


    "I was cocky, I was arrogant. I thought I, a 36 lawyer from the backends of Nebraska could take on the whole Republican machine with only my rhetoric and integrity. How foolish I was."


    Now, Adolph's eyes grew, pulling him in with his eager ears. Knowledge was dripping in gallons; he did not know if he would ever have such a marvelous opportunity again.


    "I let my vanity and eagerness get in the way of achieving great things. Yes yes, you may ponder this, wondering why I shrug off legislative achievements in women's suffrage, on worker's rights, and on the drink."


    Embarrassingly enough, Hitler hadn't. But he did not correct the Nebraskan sage.

    "Well, I am truly proud of these milestones, and am pleased that I could do my part in advancing these righteous causes. But I could not fundamentally change the system. The men who so viciously beat me down with their money power and political extravagance are the same men who still ensnare this nation with their iron claws: the same men who you have courageously fought in the Congressional halls."


    Adolph blushed. "Am I being called brave by the man who took on the whole Democratic establishment twenty-seven years ago?" he thought. His face brightly illuminated the strong emotional response to the mass leader's praise.

    "Your shock and slight amusement is strongly apparent, Adolph."

    "I so appreciate your kind words, sir."


    "Oh no, you deserve them. I see great potential in you Adolph. I was a man who could have changed everything, but my personal fall backs prevented me from upending the status quo. You are someone who can turn this wicked, anti-people system on its head. And, I say this with great clarity and brevity, you are the champion I have been looking for since I resigned from office and the one this nation needs. I feel you have great potential, Adolph."

    "I promise I will not let you down, sir. I might be saying this with impulse or clarity, but I certainly say this with heart and commitment."

    The Nebraskanite smiled, a smirk brought out both by nostalgia and hope. After a brief yet hearty chuckle, he responded with:


    "Well then, let's get started."

    Well guys, its been a while. I have been busy, and will continue to be. But the good news is that I have to a large extent figured out the basic roadmap for this timeline, and depending on the nation, up to the 1980's.

    There will be a part two to this meeting, and three more meetings. One Hitler will be involved in, one a meeting between two Britons (both whose last names are either A, B, or C) and one in Munich between two diabolical schemers.

    What a wonderful update!

    *Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice! It's not a thing to be waited for, it's something to be achieved! "

    "My friends, if I may revise my words from when I was a young man in 1896, you shall not press down on labor this crown of thorns, you shall not crucify America on this cross of internationalism! Nay, Never! For one man who will be our savior is here! This is his hour, America's hour! I am proud to place into the nomination the name of a man who carries forth the legacy of Woodrow Wilson, the Next President of the United States: Adolph Hitler!"I

    The "Battle Hymn of the Republic" begins to play.

    *note the first quote is actual
