The inspiration for this timeline comes from Kalwejts "Changing the lives of George Wallace, Jim Folsom, John Patterson, and US History". This is a similar story, involving two differant factions of the Republican Party, and their leaders from Texas. I also want to thank Oakvale for letting me borrow some elements of George W. Bush from his Jerry Brown timeline of AH.com.

Changing the Lives of Ron Paul and George Bush: A timeline
November, 1976.

Texas 22nd Congressional District, 1976
(R) Ron Paul-50.6%-97,557 votes
(D) Robert Gammage-49.4%-95,244 votes


“Thank You Texas-I’m so honored that you have the faith in me to send me back to Washington. I think it’s high time that we elect a government that supports less spending and less taxes and less government. What do you think?”
(Audience loudly applauds)
“I think it’s time we elect a Congress which can’t be bought and paid for with worthless money!”
(More applause)
“And I think it’s time we restore Conservative values to the Republican Party!”
(More Applause)
“We didn’t get our chance in Kansas City”
(Scattered boos)
“But let the results of tonight’s Presidential race show that the Conservative wing of the Republican Party can and will no longer be ignored”
(Loud cheering for both Paul and Reagan’s names begin)


”The 1976 Congressional elections saw no changes in the number of seats. Well--several seats switched hands, the net number of both parties members did not change, I should say, and Democrats remained in control of the House”-The Oral Histories of Newt Gingrich, © 2014, Newt and Callista Gingrich.

“In his second term, Congressman Paul voted against the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977, the Community Reinvestment Act, the Clean Water Act, the Humphrey-Hawkins Full Employment Act, and the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, among other things. In fact, one of the few major bills he did support was the Airline Deregulation Act.”-The Life and Times of “Dr. No” © 2020, Prof. Alex Jones

“The economy in 1978 was racked by inflation, the Middle East was tense, and plus you had the scandals regarding Bert Lance and the whole Billy Carter-Qaddafi link as well..”-Former President Ron Paul interviewed by Brit Hume, October, 2008.

“As the year 1977 progressed, economic troubles got worst. The rate of inflation hovered around 6.5%, and the little known Congressman from Texas soon became a national celebrity for his defense of the gold standard. The economic stagflation that would mark the Carter Presidency was becoming a hot button issue, and soon, another rising star in Texas launched his career…”-The GOP and Texas © 2004, Prof. Mary Ruwart


“I am here today to announce my candidacy for the House of Representatives”-George W. Bush, announcing his 1978 Congressional campaign.

“The day I announced, I had received several calls. One came from Governor Reagan, who was gearing up to run for President (against my father) for the GOP nomination. Former President Ford, former White House Chief of Staff Dick Cheney, Congressman Ron Paul, and former Senator Edward Gurney all called me up and offered endorsements and support. I was thrilled…”-Decision Points © George W. Bush, 2010.

“Mr. Carter ran for President two and a half years ago as a “outsider” who got here in Washington by claimin’ the government ravaged Americas trust. Well, Mr. Carter, we down here in Texas don’t trust you no more”-Congressman George W. Bush’s maiden speech regarding his request to investigate Billy Carters connections to Libya.



“Mr. Speaker, today the United States is racked by an energy crisis, caused in part by the events in Iran. Recently, the OPEC nations began to increase production in order to fill the gap caused by the Iranians. And the Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, often simplified as Libya, is an OPEC member. Surely no dots need to be connected here. Surely all is well. Perhaps he only has his country on his mind? Or, perhaps he has himself, and more importantly, the President on his mind. Either way, this scandal will and already has greatly dictated US policy regarding Energy and our relations with Libya, and it should be thoroughly investigated”-Ron Paul on the House Floor, January of 1979.

“Billygate was a major problem for Carter, because it was right after Watergate. We had this great scandal with Nixon, and yet, four years later, President Carter, or as we Republicans in the House used to refer him, “Honest Jimmy” was in his own battle. And it was this scandal, which grew even worst after the midterms, that really contributed to bringing down the Carter administration”-The Oral Histories of Newt Gingrich, © 2014, Newt and Callista Gingrich.


“If you want better government, and not bigger government-if you want lower taxes and higher employment-or if you just want to look at America with pride, then I am your candidate for President”-Former Governor Ronald Reagan (R-CA) announcing his run for President, July 4th, 1980.


“I want to talk to you right now about a fundamental threat to American democracy. . . . I do not refer to the outward strength of America, a nation that is at peace tonight everywhere in the world, with unmatched economic power and military might. The threat is nearly invisible in ordinary ways. It is a crisis of confidence. And at the very heart of this crisis, is myself. I have done the best I can for this nation, but different leadership is needed during this time. Therefore, I shall not seek another term as your President”.-Jimmy Carters “Crisis of Confidence” speech.

Reporter: Congressman Bush, who are you supporting for President this year?
George W. Bush: Daddy, who’d the hell did you expect?!


“President Carter has done all he can, and for that, America owes him a debt of gratitude. But, as he himself admitted, America needs a leader who inspires confidence. And I believe I am that man. That is why I am declaring my candidacy for President of the United States”-Senator Ted Kennedy, (D-MA), August 1st, 1979.

“HOSTAGES TAKEN IN IRAN”-San Francisco Chronicle, November 5th 1979.

“I will not run for President this year, and will support the nominee”-Vice President Mondale, November 1979.

 “BUSH, KENNEDY SWEEP IOWA”-Chicago Tribune, January 1980
“I am announcing my endorsement of Ronald Reagan for the Republican nomination”-Ron Paul, at a Reagan rally in Concord New Hampshire.

Quote
Wikipedia, 1980 Republican Presidential Primaries
In January 1980, the Iowa Republicans decided to have a straw poll as a part of their caucuses for that year. Bush defeated Reagan by a small margin. Bush declared he had "the Big Mo", and with Reagan boycotting the Puerto Rico primary in deference to New Hampshire, Bush won the territory easily, giving him an early lead going into New Hampshire.
 
With the other candidates in single digits, the Nashua Telegraph offered to host a debate between Reagan and Bush. Worried that a newspaper-sponsored debate might violate electoral regulations, Reagan subsequently arranged to fund the event with his own campaign money, inviting the other candidates to participate at short notice. The Bush camp did not learn of Reagan's decision to include the other candidates until the debate was due to commence. Bush refused to participate, which led to an impasse on the stage. As Reagan attempted to explain his decision, the editor of the Nashua Telegraph ordered the sound man to mute Reagan's microphone. A visibly angry Reagan responded "I am paying for this microphone, Mr. Green!" (referring to the editor). Eventually the other candidates agreed to leave, and the debate proceeded between Reagan and Bush. Reagan's quote was often repeated as "I paid for this microphone!" and dominated news coverage of the event. Reagan sailed to an easy win in that state.
 
Heading into the South Carolina primary, political operative Lee Atwater worked to engineer a victory for Reagan. "Lee Atwater figured that Connally was their biggest threat here in South Carolina. So Lee leaked a story to me that John Connally was trying to buy the black vote. Well, that story got out, thanks to me, and it probably killed Connally. He spent $10 million for one delegate. Lee saved Ronald Reagan's candidacy," said Lee Bandy, a writer for the South Carolina newspaper The State.
 
Reagan swept the South, and although he lost five more primaries to Bush, including one where he came in third behind John Anderson, the former governor had a lock on the nomination very early in the season. Reagan said he would always be grateful to the people of Iowa for giving him "the kick in the pants" he needed.



Quote
Wikipedia, 1980 Democratic Presidential Primaries
Senator Kennedy was the odds on favorite for the nomination after both Carter and Mondale refused to seek the Presidency. Despite high polling over his rivals, his campaign trailed almost all of the declared Republicans, with the exception of Dole, Crane, and Fernandez. To add more trouble to his campaign, Southern Democrats did not rally around him, and instead opted to either stay home, or support Reagan.

As Kennedys candidacy appeared weaker and weaker, other candidates began to surge. New York Governor Hugh Carey and Washington Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson took votes from Kennedy from the right, and California Governor Jerry Brown from left. Despite his shrinking position in the polls, Kennedy handily won Iowa with 38% of the vote, compared to his nearest rival, Jerry Browns 19%. Kennedy forced Carey out after he won New Hampshire by a large margin. By early May, only McGovern remained in the race, and Kennedy had carried every primary.

“I am hereby renouncing my affiliation with the Republican Party and will seek the Presidency as an independent candidate. I have asked Senator Charles Evers of Mississippi to be my running mate”-John Anderson announcing his candidacy for President as an independent.

“I graciously accept Mr. Andersons offer, and will be on the ticket with him as his candidate for Vice President”-Senator Charles Evers (I-MS).

“REAGAN TAPS BUSH AS RUNNING MATE”-Seattle Tribune
“KENNEDY ANNOUNCES REUBIN ASKEW AS VEEP PICK”-Washington Post

“The defining moment of the 1980 Presidential Election occurred at the League of Women Voters debate. After a long diatribe by Senator Kennedy attacking him as an “extremist”, and defending the Carter legacy, Reagan simply responded “there you go again, Mr. Kennedy.” Later on the same debate, Reagan replied to a lengthy answer by Senator Kennedy with the simple remark “Are you better off then you were four years ago?”. And, with that, Kennedys coffin received its final nail”—True Conservative-The Presidency of Ronald Reagan © 2010, Sean Hannity.


Governor Ronald Reagan (R-CA)/Former CIA Director George Bush (R-TX)-414 Electoral Votes, 52.3% of the popular vote.

Very nice. Will there be any notable changes to the RL Reagan cabinet? As well, did Evers' presence help Anderson in any notable areas?

I had put NJ as a Democrat state because..its New Jersey. I will change it to Reagan, because he would have won it against Ted Kennedy as well. I also fixed the color and party of Dick Thornborough. I have him listed as a Republican and colored blue in my original draft saved in word so I dont know how that happened.

Very nice. Will there be any notable changes to the RL Reagan cabinet? As well, did Evers' presence help Anderson in any notable areas?
Thanks Smiley The Reagan administration will be the same as OTL until 1988, when the wheels for the real part of the timeline begin to be put in motion.

This is really good.  Has Ron Paul endorsed?  (He endorsed Reagan in 76 otl, one of only four representatives to do so)
Yes, he endorsed Reagan early on. I thought I put it in there, but I may have forgotten Wink

I remember thinking Dick Thornburgh, PA Gov., was Republican.
Fixed it Smiley

My next update will come soon. You will see the begining of the main interpersonal conflict which will define the timeline later on Smiley

Why didn't McGovern lose and D'amato win?
