  2. Help with Brazil without the 1964 coup

    I'm thinking about writing a timeline with a wank Populist Republic, however, I'm having difficulty in trying to imagine how Brazilian elections would play out without the 1964 coup. I'm betting in either a JK or Carlos Lacerda winning in 1965, and the defeated candidate in that election winning...

    AHC: President Fred McFeely Rogers

    I remember watching this bit from Whose Line Is It Anyway, during the game World's Worst. The prompt was world's worst person to be president during a crisis, and at one point Drew Carey came down and said in his best Mr. Rogers impression, "We're having a crisis today. Can you say crisis?"...

    Proportional Representation in the USA

    Hey beautiful people of AH! Specifically looking for opinions of Americans or those who know America well. PoD doesnt matter much to me; although I'm going to assume post-Watergate. Maybe even after 2000 and the hanging chads? Anywho, what political parties do you think would be...

    Politics of the Central Powers After an Early Entente Victory?

    I'm in the planning stages of my first Post-1900 timeline, and I've decided to focus it on the aftermath of an early Entente victory in WW1. I'm considering PODs like Plan XVII being rejected or the British Expeditionary Force advancing between the German 1st and 2nd Armies. Would either of...

    Would it be possible for minor royals/nobles to become a leader of a political party?

    What I have in mind is a quasi-federal monarchy such as the German Empire, where you had the Emperor and many kings and dukes throughout Germany. Were they all banned from being active in the politics at all? And if they were, would it be possible, in Germany or any other country, for royals to...

    Which politicians that died in the 20th and 21st century could have lived longer? How would their survival affect Historical events? I want to limit the discussion to politicians whose death was caused by Murder, accident or disease. Authority figures in dictatorships should be counted as...

    Threadmarks: UNSUNKEN SUN

    PROLOGUE Picking up where we left off... May, 1, 1948 - Berlin Paul Kimickz watches the krauts celebrate across the square waving red flags and singing the international. He almost laughs at the irony, only a few years since the war ended and the damn germans found yet a new -ism to...

    What if Estes Kefauver won in 1952?

    Let's say that Kefauver was able to win the nomination and Eisenhower, which I recall didn't want to be president, chose not to run for president. How would a Kefauver presidency affect the United States, and more importantly, the World?

    So I've been playing around with Prime Minister Infinity and had a pretty solid run as the Liberals in 1950 and enjoyed myself so much I'm thinking of both making a continuation scenario and maybe a short timeline based on how a hypothetical Labour minority government with Liberal support would...
  18. AHC: Radical political or religious faction persecutes Historians, Archeologists, and Paleontologists, charges them with the sin of Necromancy

    Your challenge is to make it so that a political or religious faction arises in the 19th or 20th century, which considers people who deal with the past, like Historians, Paleontologists, and Archeologists Necromancers because they symbolically summon the dead spirits of the past to obtain...
