End of World War I
Upon the ending of World War I, the Allied Forces enacted a different Treaty of Versailles, of which had stripped Germany of political right, and handed over the majority of power to the League of Nations, dividing Germany among the Allies, which in turn made all political parties near obsolete, leading to the NSDAP as with others falling into relative obscurity, and furthermore, the inability for Germany to start the next World War.
Great Depression Era 1929-1947
The United States remains in the Great Depression for much longer, leading to political upheaval, and the deteriorating ability for the Democratic and Republican parties to hold offices of importance, leading too a massive amalgamation of third parties controlling Congress, the Senate, and the country as a whole; which, as a result, formed a power vacuum consisting of a multitude of parties.
Rise of the American Socialist Movement 1939-1943
During the Great Depression, as the country fell further and further into an economic abyss, Socialist parties had began to gain headway, namely the American Socialist Movement, which was formed in 1932, but only began to hold seats in Congress and the Senate near the end of 1939. Within less than two years, the ASM held a majority of the seats in Congress, and less than a minority in the Senate. By 1943, they had gone so far as to run a candidate, Franklin McKinley, for the presidency. This first attempt had failed, with president Geoff Van Housenberg being holder of office, and Mark Hashimoto being his Vice President; Though, in the end it gave them more than enough to work with, as president Van Housenberg had both failed to recover the economy to any substantial level, and, in most cases, even jeopardized it further, by the cutting down of many agencies, and otherwise, within government infrastructure, putting more of the country out of work.
Impeachment of Van Housenberg 1944
After only a year of office, on May 2nd, 1944 The Senate impeached Van Housenberg, for putting the U.S. in further economic risk, and at the large request of the public. The vice president, Mark Hashimoto, an avid supporter of National Socialism, is appointed President, and names ASM congressman Alexander McCormick as the new Vice president.
December 31st, 1944
On December 31st, 1944 the ASM assassinate president Mark Hashimoto in Times Square, New York, while he was in the midst of a New Year's speech. In turn, Alexander McCormick is appointed President of the United States, with Alexander assigning Vice Presidency to Alan Hampton, an high ranking party official.
Upon assuming presidency, Alexander McCormick started by taking advantage of the immigration at the time. Their was general disdain for immigrants, under the belief that they had taken a majority of the jobs available. The ASM were synonymous with the radical movement against foreign immigration, going so far as to take part in the destruction of property, and endangerment of the safety of said immigrants, at which point McCormick used the majority of ASM Congressman and Senators to grant the Executive branch complete and utter control over the Legislative and Judicial branches, allowing him to enact an anti-immigration policy, in which all immigrants that had arrived after the beginning of Great Depression, be deported back to their homelands, giving McCormick rather favorable public opinion, considering the mass anti-immigration movements of the time.
Road to War
On March 23rd, 1945, the U.S. begins funding in Military R&D, Government Infrastructure, further Military expenditure, and the reinforcement of the U.S. Mexico border, which had caused tensions between the two countries, which lead to aggression's on both sides of the border, in both the public and the government.
Soon their was a rather large effort being put into propaganda and censorship, which had given the formation of the Ministry of National Media, which had taken to an aggressive policy of enforcing control among the common media, by removing any and all literature/news that was anti-Socialist, or was in favor of other parties. This, in turn, was a very effective way of diminishing the opposition in a peaceful manner, making the American Socialist Movement the only standing party with any significance.
