  1. AHC: Setup for a Prosperous, Industrialized Latin America

    With a POD any time during or after the Age of Discovery, how can Latin America (anything south of the modern US) be set up to be comparable in living standards to the US of today? Colonization patterns don't necessarily have to be similar (e.g. the metropole for any region can be different) but...
  2. Amendments proposed at a 1969 Constitutional Convention

    The United States may have come the closest to an Article V Constitutional Convention in 1969 over the issue of reapportionment. Only one more state needed to call for a Convention in order for it to be ratified. Source...

    In otl the usa is a interventionist superpower with global influence, a less than thriving democracy, and decent racial tensions, while germany is a non interventionist welfare nation with superb civil rights, a very healthy (for now) democratic process, and some serious mass genocide in the...

  7. Browning M1919 GPMG

    After watching the Forgotten Weapons video about the AN/M2 "Stinger" machine gun a few weeks back, I've come to wonder why the US Military didn't try to adapt the M1919 into a GPMG. Army Ordnance clearly had the idea during WWII with the M1919A6, equipping the M1919A4 with a pistol grip and...

    WI: OPEC is never created?

    As the TL says. I was thinking that if by some reason there's a right-leaning government in Venezuela in the 60s (for instance, if Medina Angarita or Pérez Jiménez aren't overthrown), that government would have been more friendly towards the United States and wouldn't have tried to create an...
  9. What if the US made a Jewish state to send Jewish immigrants too during the major immigrant wave of the late 1800s

    What if the US made a state to send Jewish immigrants to in the late 1800s in order to avoid anti-Semitic riots and prejudice from other immigrant groups and native born Americans. Would this state be like Quebec but with Yiddish instead of French, where in the US would it be, how many people...
  10. Electoral College Runoff Election

    The US famously really only has two parties that matter the most in politics, and that’s the Democrats and Republicans. But in the last 4 years or so, we’ve really seen diverging ideas within those political parties. Many of these ideologies would have their own parties if they weren’t part in...
  11. DBWI: Screw American-Vietnamese relations

    Since the start of the Cold War, Vietnam has been one of the United States' closest allies in Southeast Asia. This is remarkable in that it was probably the only communist nation friendly to the West, including France its former colonizer. How could we make Vietnam another communist nation...

    Any POD is fine. Is there any way for Japan to become a colony of a European power (or the US if that isn't ASB)?
  14. AH Challenge: Roman Empire, British Empire, and the USA exist at the same time

    Give me scenarios in which the Roman Empire survives and lives up til present day (or if you think it wouldn’t survive until that point, the 20th century) Rome is without Britain and things go differently, obviously; but still things end up the same as it did in OTL. Events I would like to see...

    DBWI: Pig War never happened

    As we all know, the Cascade war, known colloquially as the Pig War, would see the Unite Kingdom lose the Oregon Country in its entirety. Along with that it also had the side effect of temporarily making people overlook the slavery debate due to the view of war with their former colonizers was...

  20. At what point could Britain no longer win a war against the United States?

    As it says on the tin. Had the British not been fighting with two hands behind their back in the War of 1812 thanks to Napoleon, they would have won handily. And this power disparity more or less rang true until the end of the American Civil War. But post Civil War the United States' power grew...
