My suggestion about TL-191 still stands: Every one of these people is a 191 character, and that ASP is very different from the OTL one; a new party was formed when Lincoln switched. Turtle Fan 08:32, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

I can't find where this particular thread initially began, but six years later, Jonathan has gone ahead and edited the category accordingly, and since in that six years HT has not favored us with any other US Socialists, I think it's an appropriate edit, and seems to be addressing what TF proposed in 2009.

So watch Fallout have all sorts of American Socialists as well as Communists (like Howard Bauman) get called before the House Un-American Activities Committee to testify. ;-p Incidentally, he and Roxane definitely are Communists and not Socialists from the book? I don't recall but they are cat'ed as such. ML4E (talk) 19:53, December 14, 2015 (UTC)
Fair question. I stuck them in communists because HT described their politics (Roxane especially) as being more red than pink, or something to that effect. It could have gone either way, really.
I can see a fair number of fictional socialists appearing over the next couple of volumes of THW (they aren't going to be any more popular in that world than OTL), so we may wind up rewriting this category a year or two from now. TR (talk) 21:04, December 14, 2015 (UTC)
