Not only does the scenario you pose make little sense...

The map makes even less sense. I'm sorry.

The map doesn't make sense, but Hoover could narrowly win reelection if he vetoed the Smoot-Hawley Tariff.

The party wouldn't have renominated him if he had vetoed the tariff.

Uh, yes it would have.

It definitely would have been a tough fight.  If he continued to oppose the Republican consensus (as the first post indicates), I don't think they would have given him the nod.

He also announces FDR to be Secretary of the Navy to show appeal among Democrats and Republican FDR supporters.

Then Germany is invaded by the polish because of falling relations, which is overthrown in 1934.

What?

Then Poland invaded Iraq and immediatly took it over.

The?

Quote
In 1935 Japan invades Poland and bombs there main Naval base.

F**k?

Not only is this completely factually inaccurate, it's just plain unrealistic...What's happening in the US?  The Dust Bowl?  The Great Depression?  Also, how the hell does Poland invade Iraq?  Just what is this I don't even

No offense meant, but this is probably the worst TL I've ever seen.  I'm sorry.

I like the part where NC goes GOP while Vermont goes Democratic.

I like the part where Poland invades the British Empire, immediately taking it over.

When Alf Landon is sworn in America is deciding if it should fight. Then on May 15th Poland bombs England. The US sends 15000 troops without congressional approval.

1).  The United Kingdom.  England hasn't existed for hundreds of years.

Anyways, I like the part where Poland invades the British Empire, immediately taking it over.

1).  You never even said who got the State Rights nomination...Strom Thurmond is President?

2).  The Dixiecrats had no success outside of the south...Hence the name "Dixie"crat.

JFK was a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives in 1952...An unknown minor war hero and son of a rich politician who screwed up his career.

How's the Cold War going in this timeline?  Is the Soviet Union even a communist state, or is it a monarchy in some weird union with Argentina or Thailand or something?  Maybe the Cold War will take place between the US and the People's Republic of Japan, or something like that?


I think it'll be the Pan-Ukrainian Alliance vs. the Polaqi Empire vs. the United States of Canada

In 1953 John Kennedy and Harry Truman are sworn in, President Kennedy visits the Polo-Iraqi federation when Kennedy is meeting with Prime Minister Bolesław Bierut he is shot 5 in the head causing instant death. Harry Truman is sworn in.

That must be Kurdish-German separatists!

In 1965 George Bush is sworn in as President. The Soviets which had been planning a holocaust launched 50 Nukes towards various parts of the world. 2 hours later 12 missiles hit there intended targets, 1 hour later 15 more missiles strike. 12 minutes later 13 missiles strike. then 5 minutes later the last hit, there is a big flash and then nothing. The World was GONE.

How did you like this timeline say all your comments and your complaints, maybe something will happen.

Genius!!!

Despite the fact that George Bush was only an oil driller in 1965, GENIUS!!!

Despite the fact that an atomic bomb blow up the Earth, GENIUS!!!

Despite the fact we had no prior knowledge of the Soviet Union even existing in this TL, GENIUS!!!
