Welcome to the To Gain the World timeline, in which the assassination attempt on Huey P. Long fails. This timeline will cover his OTL career as well as his career as President. No doubt exists that he would have liked to become President. In fact, he outlines what his administration would have been like in his book My First Days in the White House, published posthumously in OTL. His slogan, "Every Man a King" and his Share Our Wealth program epitomized his socialist views. Given the climate of Depression-era America, he probably would have won the Presidency if he had the chance.
Warning to the reader, the author is conservative. Although he will try to avoid using his own bias in writing this timeline , his worldview will probably affect some elements of the story. (i.e., the effects of socialism, etc.)
