comment Did Radio Free Europe say that the Allies would come to the rescue during the Hungarian Revolution?
The work cited is based off RFE archives including full tape archives of what RFE actually broadcast in its Hungarian programming. Archives trump myth. An excellent question would be what role did the myth of RFE offers of support to Hungary play for Hungarians before and after 1989 and for anti-Soviet groups in the west.

comment Why didn't Stalin use force to bring Tito into line?
The planning was to use the fraternal states militaries in echelonment to protect Soviet forces. Hungary 1956 was fairly costly for the Soviet Union, and that was without the Honved being centrally controlled to resist or in general resisting. Yugoslavia would have made Korea look nice, thus the plan to bleed the fraternal states first. Korea, of course, being the other point: that Stalin authorised Korea instead of Yugoslavia.

comment Was George Wallace's American Independent party (1968) “the same party” as Strom Thurmond's Dixiecrat party (1948)?
The modified question seems to be more political history than political theory now.

Last time I checked political science and history were separate disciplines, and political history doesn't attempt the kind of theorising you're demanding of it. There's a perfectly good politics stackexchange by the way.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a question going to political science theory.

comment When did the Commonwealth of England start being considered a Republic?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it should have been migrated to politics. It is about political theory, not history.

comment Why did monarchy become common practice after the fall of Rome?
Too broad for history. Political science theory question. Try migrating to politics.
