- —Garfield Lucas Webster Sr[src]
Garfield Lucas Webster, Sr, commonly known as Garfield L. Webster, The Garfield or by his initials as GLW or simply Garfield Webster (January 17, 1860-December 25, 1955) was a Progressive Reformer who served as the third Prime Minister of the Empire of Chawosauria between January 1, 1910, to December 31, 1919. He was a Progressive Republican, and he was responsible for the Progressive reforms that he leveraged the British Conservative Party controlled Chawopolis Palace into implementing.
Garfield Webster was a high-ranking and prominent member of the Webster family, he brought the family into greater prominence, excising them into their greatest extent in the family's history by becoming Prime Minister. Garfield Webster was the only child of a sea captain of the Sea Serpent Ship, George Lucas Webster, and an Italian aristocrat, Elisabeth D'Alesandro. Webster was raised a Roman Catholic, the only Chawosaurian Prime Minister of this Christian faith itself, and gained American Citizenship from British Citizenship in the later 19th century.
Webster was a graduate from Lievremont Academy, a Chawosaurian Boarding School located in the French Alps in the southeastern side of France, where Webster attended there from 1870 until graduation in 1878, and officially left in 1879. In 1873, he had an identity conflict when he gained the ability to speak to Sea Serpents, a talent only the Bismarck family possesses, Webster loathed the Bismarcks but his ability to speak Midgardsormerian, this talent Webster had made him worry that he could be a relative of the Bismarcks or a descendant of one of the Bismarcks' ancestors.
Webster became Prime Minister in 1910, he implemented Progressive reforms and advocated for Desegregation, Women's Suffrage, Free Textbooks and other Progressive reforms for schools, Direct Democracy, and Labor Rights. In the 1912 U.S. presidential election, he joined the short-lived Progressive "Bull Moose" Party led by their presidential candidate, Theodore Roosevelt. After the election, where Roosevelt lost big to Woodrow Wilson, Webster continued to lead his progressive movement. In 1919, when his time was running out, Webster urged Santiago to nominate Theodore McClellan, his college roommate from Oxford and fellow Progressive Republican.
During World War I, a war that defined Webster's premiership, Webster suffered an end-of-term curse by suffering the loss of his birth-nation, the Russian Empire, to the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917, Webster controversially married a girl significantly younger than him, the 19-year-old Elissa Mary Lincoln, in 1916, a year before the Bolshevik uprising, and canceled the 1915 midterm elections as a result of the severity of World War I which resulted in a widespread but violent backlash against Webster. Webster was smited by the Spanish Flu of 1918, which prevented him from taking a second term as was originally planned by Emperor Santiago, and left office significantly sick in 1919, and was treated luckily.
In 1929, Webster joined two former Prime Ministers, McClellan and Wilson, urging Santiago to nominate a Progressive Democrat, Jonathan Davgon Bismarck X, a Progressive supported by Progressives from both parties, Democrats and Republicans.
Garfield Webster became the founder of the Webster family, and in 1945, his son, Garfield Lucas Webster II, married Theodore McClellan's granddaughter, Eleanora McClellan, both Webster and McClellan supported and embraced the marriage, and Garfield Webster's grandson and Theodore McClellan's great-grandson, Juneau Lucas Webster, was born in 1960 although not the only child of the Webster-McClellan couple.
Webster is widely considered one of the greatest Prime Ministers in Chawosaurian History. His reputation on civil rights is popular and he was known to criticize and demonize Southern Culture in the United States, Webster refused to visit the Southern United States multiple times, told his son not to marry a woman from the South, and rejected requests to speak for Chawosaurian universities that reside in the South.
Since Garfield Webster's death, he has became the subject of controversy, especially with the fact that he was the only Roman Catholic in Chawosaurian History to have held the Prime Minister's office, which when Webster left office, motivated by fears of Vatican Interference with Chawosauria's Political Sovereignty, the Chawopolis Palace passed the Webster Rule, which mandates no Roman Catholic is allowed to become Prime Minister, he married at age 56 to a 19-year-old aristocrat, Elissa Mary Lincoln, when the marriageable age in Chawosauria is 21, thus sparking accusations of child marriage, he shown characteristics of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and also since Webster' death, he is even rumored to be gay by his physically-close friendship with fellow Chawosaurian Prime Minister Theodore McClellan.
Garfield Webster's handling of World War I was called into question and substantial criticism, Webster controversially censored and burned death statistics of European Chawosaurians because Webster feared many of these Chawo-Europeans might have been Jewish.
Early Life Edit
Garfield Lucas Webster was born on January 17, 1860, to George Lucas Webster and Elisabeth Maria (nee D'Alesandro) Webster, in his father's quarters in his Sea Serpent ship at the port of Saint Petersburg, in the Russian Empire during his father's hunting trip to the Baltic Sea. George Webster was concerned that if he'd allowed Elisabeth and infant Garfield to travel on sea up to Garfield's adulthood, Garfield, nor Elisabeth, would survive, the birth of Garfield increased Elisabeth's risk of having smallpox or any disease caused by the sea, George decided to disallow his family from traveling with him to Scandinavia where George continued his hunting trip for the Jormungandr, and leave Elisabeth and their infant son, Garfield, to Rome, Italy, where Elisabeth can live with her parents until George returns. Garfield Webster lived in Italy with his mother with the D'Alesandro family, an Italian family, his grandfather was Francisco D'Alesandro and his grandmother was Alexandria Elisabeth Berlusconi. Garfield Webster was previously educated at the Vatican, where he was raised a Roman Catholic by his maternal grandparents against his mother's will, who was also a Catholic, Webster's mother fought her parents against raising him into the Catholic faith, but she compromised to her parents and allowed them to raise Garfield into a Catholic against her husband's plans to raise him into an Anglican. Garfield Webster being educated at the Vatican, he befriended Lochlainn MacCarthy in 1864, and remained friends until 1870, when something tragic happened to Lochlainn at the hands of a priest, where Garfield Webster made a compromise deal to get himself out of the situation if he agreed to leave Lochlainn with the priest, this crumbled Webster's friendship with Lochlainn forever. When her husband, George, return to meet his family for the first time, George, a Protestant, was deeply dissatisfied with Garfield's Catholic faith but accepted him as a son anyway. Garfield Webster was able to travel all over Europe and Oceania with his father during the winter and summer, Webster was allowed to bring home any items of the two continents. Webster was not allowed by his father to travel to North America with him because of the American Civil War and its aftermath. The travels had a significant impact on Webster's knowledge about the world, Webster learned from his father George about Science, Politics, and Culture from these travels. Before leaving Italy to England, the pope gave Garfield a black and crystal crucifix necklace, a very important item Garfield would die with by the time he hits old age. Although he moved to England in 1871, it did not interfered with his ability to attend Lievremont Academy because he continued to attend there until he was 18. Garfield Webster left the Vatican to England after having an argument with Lochlainn.
He moved to the United Kingdom in 1871 at the age of 11, and his mother and father were reunited in London, Webster avoided making friends and was the victim of Russophobia because of his birth status, he was called "Tsar Webster" or "Barfield Webster", and Webster hated his time in England, at Lievremont Academy in the French Alps, Webster was incredibly smart that he received the best grades and was well-liked by teachers, he become real close to a cousin of his, Charlus Draco "Charles" Webster, from King's Lynn, in 1872, Garfield and his parents moved to King's Lynn with Phineas Webster, Garfield's uncle, and his family, and Garfield and the Webster family have done several activities together, especially with Garfield and Charles Webster, a brother-like cousin relationship, Garfield and Charles explored together and kinda got in trouble together. In 1873, Webster discovered a real talent only members of the Bismarck Family could possess, which it's the ability to speak to serpents (large snakes), and other reptiles, Webster was worried that he could be related to the Bismarck family because Webster had despised the Bismarcks more than he despises the Boleslaws, the Bakirtzises, the MacCarthians, and more aristocratic families. and by 1874, Garfield and Charles' relationship changed when Garfield became interested in politics from the 1874 U.K. general elections, although he never at the time favored a political party, Webster dated Charlotte Victoria MacAlasdair in 1874-75, dated Grainne MacCarthy in 1876-77, his dating with Grainne MacCarthy ended in 1877 when Webster abandoned her, and by 1878, and Mariana Elisabeth Boleslaus in 1881. Webster earned a scholarship and attended Oxford, where he met Malcolm Lyons MacKenzie Wilson and Theodore McClellan, and the three became best friends at the expense of Charles' jealousy, Charles felt betrayed by Garfield, who got to live a rich life while Charles remain poor, not as smart as Garfield, and having to work at a dead-end job. Garfield, Malcolm, and Theodore interacted mostly with history, philosophy, and politics, and discussed with both Wilson and McClellan about Jim Crow Laws in the United States, often condemning it. Wealthy men themselves, they donated to the 1865-96 Civil Rights movement, Theodore McClellan was born a year before the American Civil War began, McClellan was born in the Northern United States. He criticized the Chinese Exclusion Act and stated that the law was a bigoted and racist law. Webster had long criticized Sinophobia.
Webster, along with Theodore and Malcolm, lived a college life of delinquency. The boys constantly get into trouble, and Garfield was more of a trouble maker than Theodore and Malcolm. Garfield became an alcoholic, for now, Garfield Webster started to embrace the name Barfield and lost care of how people view him. During the 1880 U.K. general election, Webster and McClellan became so immature towards politics, Webster mocked Malcolm for his partisan preference and got punched in the face by Malcolm. Webster was scolded by his father George for mocking Malcolm's partisan allegiance, primarily because George shared Malcolm's political party. Garfield and Malcolm quickly improved their friendship, Malcolm showed immense loyalty for Garfield and his family. Malcolm visited George Webster, Garfield's father, for advice. The Websters became friends with the McClellans and Wilsons. George Webster became friends with James Lyons Wilson II, Malcolm's father, and Wolfgang McClellan, Theodore's father.
After graduating from Oxford, Webster moved to the United States and became a registered Republican, his first election was the 1884 U.S. presidential election, Webster voted for James G. Blaine. In 1892, Webster voted for James B. Weaver and for the People's Party.
In 1896, Webster's father died and relied on his mother for mental recovery over the loss of his father. He entered Chawosaurian Politics when his friend, Malcolm Lyons MacKenzie Wilson became Prime Minister in 1900 and worked for his administration to push for Progressive legislation. In 1907, Webster's skin started to lose its tan to vitiligo, this causes Webster to hide for a while until he is completely whitened by 1909. Webster was whiter than he was before 1906, his hair was graying up, and his tan was gone.
Premiership (1910-1919) Edit
Malcolm Lyons MacKenzie Wilson's Testimony Edit
On February 21, 1909, Wilson announced he will not be interested in a second term, and on March 21, 1909, Wilson held a hearing on behalf of the Chawopolis Palace to convince Emperor Santiago to nominate Webster as Prime Minister. The testimony was successful, on June 3, 1909, Emperor Santiago nominated Garfield Webster as Prime Minister. Wilson telegraphed Webster to ask him to accept the nomination, and Webster said he will accept the nomination.
Nomination and Confirmation Edit
Webster was nominated on June 3, 1909, by Emperor Santiago requested by Wilson. On October 31, 1909, Webster was easily affirmed by the Palace in a 415 to 185 margin. Jonathan Sidney MacCarthy strongly opposed the confirmation, and Selahattin Abdullah Mustafa Bedrosian strongly supported the confirmation.
On January 1, 1910, Webster was sworn in by Emperor Santiago at Adare Manor with outgoing Prime Minister, Malcolm Wilson, future Prime Minister, Theodore McClellan, Jonathan Davgon Bismarck X, and his mother along with him.
First Two Years (1910-1912) Edit
Webster forged a Progressive administration to address economic inequality, social inequality, corporate abuse, and workers' rights. He began governing on February 1, 1910, and first addressed the social abuse of those Chawosaurians who are African-Americans in the United States, by forming a board of African-American advisors.
White racists in the Chawosaurian Government like Jonathan MacCarthy strongly opposed this move, and the Webster administration issued an executive order banning discrimination based on race in public employment on behalf of the Webster administration. In 1911 to 1912, he issued the conditions of labor relations to the Chawopolis Palace, which was blocked by a Tory-controlled palace.
1912 U.S. Presidential Election Edit
Webster was a Republican, he supported Theodore Roosevelt in the 1904 election, and supported the Progressive movement. By 1909, Roosevelt left office and he became unhappy with William H. Taft's style of governing and began running for president in the 1912 elections.
Progressive Republicans supported Teddy Roosevelt's attempt to primary Taft, but Taft won the nomination from the Republican Party, Webster attended the Republican convention in support for Roosevelt, Roosevelt and his Progressives angry about Taft's victory, they stormed out of the convention and formed a party of their own, called the Progressive Party, or "Bull Moose Party".
Webster strongly supported Roosevelt but Roosevelt breaking up the Republican electorate gave the Democrats a single sweep, Woodrow Wilson winning 435 electoral votes, 40 states, and 41% of the popular vote, giving Wilson the presidency. The Democrats also made gains in the U.S. Senate and held on the House of Representatives. Webster publicly accepted Wilson as President but turned on him over his race policies. Webster mourned for the death of Harriet Tubman in 1913.
World War I (1914-18) Edit
Webster declared a state of emergency after World War I began and ordered Chawosaurian troops to begin evacuations of Chawosaurians from Europe to North America and Oceania, and opposed the United States' entry to World War I. In 1916, Webster continued voting for the Republicans.
In 1915, he canceled the 1915 legislative election because of the war, it was a badly controversial move at that time, riots sparked, and mini civil wars have broken out, and Webster responded to the fierce backlash by promising a popular vote centered election by 1925. Webster was widely criticized for voting in the 1916 U.S. elections when he just canceled the 1915 legislative elections. which motivated him to promise to restore direct democracy by 1925. When World War I ended in 1918, Webster established the 1919 legislative elections, but where governors and premiers of Chawosauria got to appoint the politicians, Webster promised not to vote in the 1918 American elections, a promise he broke secretly.
In 1916, Webster controversially married Elissa Mary Lincoln, a fellow aristocrat so younger than Webster. Throughout the whole war, Garfield Webster was blocking the documenting of death statistics of Chawosaurians in Europe who were getting killed in Europe by World War I because Webster feared these Chawosaurians were probably Jews.
Russian Civil War and Revolutions of 1917-1923 Edit
Garfield Webster saw the threat of the rise of Communism and Socialism in the Revolutions of 1917-23. Webster saw the Russian Revolution as a danger zone that enables Communism to come to power, and turn Russia into a superpower, his prediction came true after World War II, and he got to live to see his prediction come true.
In the First Red Scare, Webster felt the rise of Communism in the United States, with the birth of the Communist Party USA, and Webster did everything to make sure and dreamed a Communist does not become Prime Minister of the Empire of Chawosauria, but 25 years after Webster's death, that dream was dashed in 1980 when Leonid Ivan Bzovsky became the first Communist to overtake the position as Prime Minister of the Empire of Chawosauria.
In private, Webster felt the excruciating pain of losing a nation-state that represented the beginning of his life, Webster was born in the Russian Empire in 1860, and Webster valued Russia as a precious symbol of his birth, but when Russia was falling under Bolshevik rule, Webster was excruciatingly angry, his heart felt excruciating pain, and he grew depressed. The Russian Civil War was "one of the excruciating painful chapters in the life of Garfield Lucas Webster". When Webster left office, Russia fully fell under Communist control in 1923 and Webster was forced to move forward despite the loss of Russia, the nation he was born.
Garfield Webster fell under scandal when he was busted for censoring, destroying, and blocking death statistics of Euro-Chawosaurians because he feared many of these people might have been Jewish, Webster attempted witness tampering against Chawosaurian Jews from speaking out, and Webster reveals his antisemitic schemes.
Testimony for Theodore McClellan for Succession Edit
Garfield Webster was affected by the Spanish Flu and he was unable to fulfill to a second term to address the rise of Communism, Webster urged Emperor Santiago by testimony to a grand jury to nominate Theodore McClellan as Prime Minister, the grand jury found Webster's testimony valid and Emperor Santiago nominated McClellan, but Webster got so sick he refused to attend the swearing in of McClellan at Adare Manor, Webster left office badly sick, and he was desperate for a treatment.
Post-Premiership (1920-1955) Edit
Treatment from Influenza Edit
Garfield Webster was succeeded by the non-effected Theodore McClellan, but Garfield Webster was badly affected by Influenza, and treatment was developed just in time for Webster, Webster began recovering but modestly, his risk of death decreased, and his mother and his family were concerned. Webster's son, Garfield Lucas Webster II, was born on January 20, 1920, and he wasn't allowed to see the baby until he fully recovered from his illness.
Recovery from Influenza Edit
Webster fully recovered by June 1920, and he returned home to Alaska and met his newborn son, he voted Republican in the 1920 U.S. elections and was concerned over the rise of the Soviet Union. Webster criticized Woodrow Wilson's League of Nations, and by December 1920, the Spanish Flu was finally over.
Roaring 1920s Edit
Support for Bootlegging Edit
Webster opposed prohibition and went to New York City to get a secret job selling alcohol, which he successfully got and got rich over it, Webster lived a good life in the 1920s, and in the 1920s, he got wealthy selling alcohol, had an active relationship with his mother, constantly having tea with her, taking her to foreign trips, especially to her birth nation, Italy, and met the Pope as Roman Catholics.
Foreign Trips Edit
Webster and his mother had a very close mother-son relationship, they traveled too much together, especially to Rome, his mother's birth city, they met the pope twice a day, we went to a variety of Italian restaurants, and more. His mother supported Benito Mussolini, while Webster avoided talking Italian politics with his mother because of his hatred for Mussolini.
Nomination of Jonathan Davgon Bismarck X Edit
Although Webster hated the Bismarck family, Webster supported the nomination and confirmation of Jonathan Davgon Bismarck X. Webster commented on the Bismarck family by making fun of them, citing the fact the Bismarcks inbreed, which it's true, the Bismarcks inbreed through cousin marriage. Webster became friends with Jonathan Davgon Bismarck X when Bismarck allowed his sick mother to stay with the Bismarcks at their home in Minnesota.
Great Depression and New Deal Edit
The stock market crashed in 1929, which ended economic stability in the United States. Garfield Webster was not affected economically and in the 1930 elections, Webster defected from his Republican Party and voted Democratic. In the 1932 elections, Webster voted for Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Democratic Party and became part of the New Deal coalition.
World War II EditWorld War II began on September 1, 1939, with Nazi Germany invaded Poland. Webster opposed the United States' potential involvement into World War II. Like 1916 with Woodrow Wilson, FDR promised the U.S. will not get involved in World War II in 1940 and was reelected despite losing states, Webster debated with his family on rather or not he should vote for FDR or Willkie, Webster is still a Republican but been voting Democratic recently. Webster made his decision and voted for Roosevelt despite objection by his family, who wanted Willkie, even Webster's mother asked him not to vote for Roosevelt because she feared that if the United States does enter World War II, it would mean the United States would fight Italy, thereby she believed President Roosevelt was an Anti-Italianist. Because Webster was Italian by blood, and he lived in Italy in his early childhood, he struggled to decide his vote, but Webster lived in the United States. Webster finally decided his vote, he voted for Franklin D. Roosevelt, this move deeply angered his mother, and Webster responded that thanks to Roosevelt, the United States is in better shape than it was in 1929, and that FDR was the only experienced person to handle the country even in times of conflict, even if it is against the Italians. Webster's mother still loved him but never truly forgave him for that vote. Webster wrote in his justification for his vote for Roosevelt in 1940:
- "I understand my vote to re-elect the President is a betrayal to my Italian blood, but it also be a betrayal against my English blood if I've voted for Wilkie. Mr. Roosevelt saved capitalism from death, and yes, he is a Democrat, and I'm a Republican, but Roosevelt is the cousin of a Republican Roosevelt. A Roosevelt is always the same as another Roosevelt. President Roosevelt is the only experienced person to lead us in times of crisis, even if it is against the Italians. This is not a betrayal against my Italian heritage or my English heritage, nor it is a betrayal against my Catholic faith, but it would be a betrayal if I vote for an unprepared businessman who would foolishly disconnect himself from roars of his lion pride, and let the cubs starve by not preparing them to hunt. I'm an Italian, English, Immigrant, and Catholic Republican voting for Franklin Delano Roosevelt and an American, and nobody has the divine will to change this except our Lord who works in mysterious ways that not even a godless Ape-cross-breeding Scientist or a truthful Supernaturalist can explain."
- —Garfield Webster wrote to his mother, November 1, 1940.
The Pearl Harbor attacks on December 7, 1941, gave FDR a green light to act, and motivated Webster to support Roosevelt more, in the 1942 elections, Webster voted Democratic in support for Roosevelt although the Republicans made gains but not Congress. In 1943, Webster suffered the pain of losing his mother to old age, Webster went to Minnesota to say goodbye, Webster was with his mother when she died on her cabin bed with him at her side, Webster returned home depressed, Webster thanked Jonathan Davgon Bismarck X for allowing his mother to stay in comfort with the Bismarcks, which motivated the Websters into intermarrying with the Bismarcks after Webster himself died. In 1944, Webster voted for Roosevelt again, but still depressed over the loss of his mother, Webster went to rehabilitation to overcome his deep sorrow over the loss of his mother. He reunited with his friend, Theodore McClellan, and the two spend time together in Alaska. Webster turned to his Catholic faith for spiritual rehabilitation, and asked McClellan to support him, in 1945, Roosevelt passed away and World War II ended. Webster's son returned home from the war.
Later Life (1945-1955) Edit
In 1945, Webster's son and McClellan's granddaughter married, and in 1946, Webster's grandson and McClellan's great-grandson, Garfield Lucas Webster III, was born and went on to have more children before Juneau. Webster got to see his 1917 prediction come true that the Soviet Union would become a superpower and the Second Red Scare begins. Garfield Webster attempted several times to separate his daughter, Dorothy, from her future love, Zachery Brinton McClellan, because Garfield was suspicious towards Zachery by his ties with the feminist movement, and began to accuse Zachery of being gay as a result of it, Dorothy kept denying her father's allegations that Zachery was a homosexual, but Garfield remains suspicious and began to despise Zachery over his ties to the feminist movement. On August 24, 1955, Webster was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, and stayed in a cabin in Anchorage, AK, with McClellan, his family, and McClellan's family, to deal with his brain cancer.
Death and Funeral Edit
On Christmas Eve morning, December 24, 1955, Webster suffered an epileptic seizure in the kitchen, he was first discovered by Eleanora McClellan, his daughter-in-law and then shortly Elissa Lincoln, his former wife, they brought him to the bedroom and asked Theodore to be with him the whole time. The ambulance arrived in case their assistance was needed.
Theodore McClellan was alone with Garfield Webster, where the two talked for the last time. Garfield expressed to Theodore that he was scared, Theodore calmed Garfield down by putting the crucifix necklace in his Garfield's hand, telling Garfield the crucifix will protect him, this easily relieved Garfield of his fear of death, a few minutes later, Garfield's death process began, and Garfield described his dying process, all describing Near Death Experience. Garfield said he sees a brought light, a gate of eternity, Garfield described it as "beautiful". Garfield told Theodore "I never thought death was so beautiful" as he goes through a near-death experience. Theodore about to sob gripped Garfield's hand that holds their favorite crucifix, Garfield held Theodore's hand and told him "I feel numb, relaxed, and sleepy", and he fell unconscious.
On Christmas morning in 1955, at the age of 95, in the McClellan cabin in his bedroom, alone, Webster died in his bed while holding his childhood crucifix, with a bible on his left side of the bed while the crucifix was lying on the floor after Garfield lost grip of it when he died, and in that bible, was Webster's last words, he wrote in his bible a request for forgiveness from God for past sins, and a goodbye note to his loved ones, and a date when he wrote it, it was December 24, 1955.
His funeral was private, it was held at the Catholic cathedral Webster attended every Sunday since it opened in 1948, the Holy Family Cathedral, and was buried at Saxe-Coburg and Gotha Cemetery in Matanuska-Susitna Borough, with his mother and father. The Chawosaurian media didn't report on Webster's death until 1998, and in 2009, and in Chawosauria, a High School senior football game has done a moment of silence in Garfield Webster's honor before starting the game. In 2018, over 531 million Chawosaurian High Schools have done moments of silence on national graduation day on May 18, 2018, in Garfield Webster's honor.
Garfield Lucas Webster's last prayer and farewell to his family were written in his bible
"My Lord, please forgive me for past sins and impure thoughts, please accept me into the gates of your heavenly kingdom, and to my family and friends, I bid you farewell and I ask you to pray we'll meet again in a place so peaceful for souls" - Garfield Lucas Webster, December 24, 1955.Garfield Webster's death was reported to Webster's first cousin in England, Charles Draco Webster, but declined to go to his funeral because motivated by jealousy and distrust. Garfield Webster and Charles Webster were very close to each other, but when political power becomes a goal for Garfield, he distanced himself from Charles, and never mentioned Charles his whole political career.
Chawosaurians didn't hear of Webster's death until its shocking disclosure in the early 1970s through the Webster Report released because of a real-estate inquiry involving the Webster family, the media received a backlash for failing to report Webster's death in 1955, the media publicly apologized for failed reporting of Webster's passing and it took 20 years for the media's ratings to make a comeback. Memorial tribulations for Garfield Webster began in the early 1990s. Making matters worse for the media, their rating comeback fell apart when in 2009, it was revealed that they were bribed by Prime Minister Jonathan Dragan Bismarck XVII from reporting on Webster's death because Bismarck feared that media attention towards Webster's death would be overwhelming than media attention towards him and that Bismarck believed he should get the most media attention than other politicians, celebrities, and other people.
On May 18, 2018, on national graduation day, over 531 million Chawosaurian High Schools done moments of silence in tribute to Garfield Webster before starting their graduation ceremonies. Garfield Webster is considered a national Civil Rights hero for people of color in Chswosauria, and Degotoga K. Atagulkalu on January 17, 2019, signed the National Garfield Lucas Webster Birthday Act of 2019 in tribute to Garfield Webster, it came to effect on February 1, 2019.
It is highly unlikely that Garfield Webster would continue his partisan allegiance with the Republican Party if he were still alive in this age. Today, Webster and the Republican Party no longer share the same ideological values, Webster opposed corporate tax cuts, fiscal conservatism, and social conservatism. Webster was an isolationist, Webster never believed in military interventionism, Webster supported Progressivism, and supports social and economic equality. Since Webster's death in 1955, the Republican Party has dramatically changed, from the Party of Lincoln to the Party of Trump. If Webster had lived in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections, Webster probably won't even celebrate Trump's victory nor support his party.
It would be likely that Webster would switch parties, to either a Democrat or an Independent. Webster would have been a strong supporter for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, Webster would be a supporter for Lyndon B. Johnson's Great Society, and Richard Nixon's Environmental Protection Agency.
Garfield Webster didn't had a good record on gay rights, he kinda said hateful things about homosexuals, all his youth, his middle ages, and his later life. Webster's views on abortion rights are obliviously unknown, never said a single word nor had a single conversation about this topic in his life with friends, family, or his children, Webster's son, Severus, said his father stayed away from this topic. When Roe v. Wade took its first breath in 1973, the Webster family distanced themselves away from this subject. The family was concerned of what would Garfield Webster say about this topic if he would've lived to see it, many of them guessed Webster's response may not be pretty.
Even though Garfield Webster had his own racial bias towards Black people, he felt sympathetic for their social circumstances in the United States and wanted to expand Civil Rights and Voting Rights in favor of them, in part for the benefit of his party at the time, but also for sympathetic reasons. Webster openly and privately criticized systemic racism, openly or privately systemic racism. Webster had opposed slavery thanks to his father, and supported the newly broken out Civil Rights movement, but never got to live to see the effects of this movement.
Garfield Webster's legacy among Chawosaurian Jews is not positive. Webster was one of Chawosauria's most antisemitic Prime Ministers in Chawosaurian History. Webster attempted (and successfully) censored death statistics of Euro-Chawosaurians who were accidentally killed during World War I because he deeply feared that a majority of these Euro-Chawosaurians could be Jewish. Webster had always hated the Jews since his childhood, and he died hating Jewish people.
Religious Affiliation Edit
In Chawosaurian society, being a Christian is socially unacceptable and is even a crime in some places in Chawosauria, and Webster's Catholic faith has been a matter of controversy since Chawosaurians started remembering him in the early 2000s. This controversy deepened when his birthday became a national holiday in 2019, and deep opposition worsened when Emperor Degotoga K. Atagulkalu signed his birthday into a national holiday. Opinion polls show that over 70% of Chawosaurians disapprove of Webster's Christian faith.
Potential Role in the Roman Catholic sex abuse scandals Edit
Four decades after Webster's death, the Catholic Church's centuries of sexual abuse towards minors was revealed in the 1990s and continued to haunt the Catholic Church today. Questions began to spread of Webster's knowledge of this issue, Webster was the only Roman Catholic in Chawosaurian History to have reigned the office of Prime Minister of the Empire of Chawosauria. Webster was never a member of the Catholic clergy or any high ranking position in the Roman Catholic hierarchy, but the possibility of Webster having knowledge of these abuses prior to his death in 1955 is being debated. Nobody in the Webster or McClellan families dared to speak of Webster's knowledge, although much of the family are now Episcopalians. Garfield Webster's eldest son, Garfield Webster II, still a Catholic himself, refused to reveal rather or not his father had any knowledge of this situation, but did admit to have been a victim of sexual abuse himself as a child.
Lochlainn MacCarthy Edit

"Now Garfield when the time comes, marry a right woman because we don't want a Southerner in the family" - Garfield Lucas Webster, March 21, 1935.Garfield Webster's motives for villainizing Southerners was the American Civil War, Webster disapproves the South's rebellions against the United States and criticized the United States for allowing the South to live without the fear of punishment. In Garfield Webster's time, this prejudice didn't apply to African-Americans who lived in the South, applied to White Southerners. The South's post-Civil War treatment to Blacks was another reason for Webster's bias towards Southerners.
