I know you’re asking yourself, “Who the f*ck is this newb?” I ask myself that question every morning when I look in the mirror, so don’t feel too bad for thinking it.
“Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit, wisdom is knowing you don’t put it in a fruit salad.”
I have been around on and off for the last two and a half years. I have spent a great deal of my time in-game working with new players. I was a former instructor of Business and Economics for the North American University, and later the Dean of that institution. I’ve worked with Meals on Wheels, and have done outreach for a Top Five Party. I also spent months in TC, helping new players learn the military module and become active. I’m the current Director of the Department of Education and enjoy working with and helping develop new players.
I spent two terms running the Budget and Finance Committee in Congress, and three terms as Party President of the Libertarian Party (while it was still a Top Five party). Needless to say, I have been around the block a few times, then again so has your mom. :p
“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed.”
I will make sure there is a Tank in every garage and Q6 meal in every oven! If elected I will push for a strong domestic agenda. I will push for a program that assimilates our new foreign born citizens and allows full participation for all citizens despite their eNation of origin. I will also pursue programs that expand the education of our children, and push for programs the decrease the infant mortality rates (retention.) My goal is to create a program that provides our children who learn the game with the supplies they need for growth and a reason to stick around.
“We need to in this country begin again to raise discourse to another level. I mean, we shout and scream and yell and get very little accomplished, but you can disagree very much with the next guy and still be friends and acquaintances.”
Political Cooperation and Inclusion:
In this country political discourse and cooperation have taken a back seat to fighting, name calling, and outright incivility. We need a system in place that protects our institutions from those who wish to do severe harm to the eUS, our standards, and our eLives. This protection comes from a group of Top Five parties that is strong, inclusive, and cooperative. We need to develop not only a better program for cooperation, but also a better tone when we interact with each other. We may not always agree with each other, but at the end of the day we’re all fighting on the same side.
I will push for the creation of a Congressional Intern Program that allows those who wish to learn the ins and outs of Congress the ability to do so, and I will push for a Executive Intern Program that allows new player to interact with Executive Branch and learn the ins and outs of a specific department.
“In a world of increasing inequality, the legitimacy of institutions that give precedence to the property rights of “the Haves” over the human rights of “the Have Nots” is inevitably called into serious question.”
The Economy & Business:
I will push for economic controls that balance the needs of new players with the interests of this country’s businesses. We are currently facing a time of record deflation, and rising gold prices. I will work to establish a program to stop falling commodities prices and return businesses to profitability. There needs to be a program in place that creates an artificial price floor that is currently higher than those set by the bot, as a nation we can and we will solve this problem.
“I have never advocated war except as a means to peace.”
Our current Alliances leave something to be desired, but I believe we can work to improve them through greater diplomatic ties and a serious dialogue with our allies. Mistakes like those involving eBulgaria and eChile can not be allowed to happen again, and should probably be rectified if at all possible.
“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex.”
War seems to be a large concern for many citizens in this game, I for one participate, but have a greater interest in other areas of the game. For that reason I will listen to what our allies and our great military strategists have to say and weigh their decisions with great thought and consideration, before coming up with a strategy the benefits every American, big or small.

Vote Dennis McVicker US Marijuana Party Candidate for Congress in District of Columbia!
You really thought I was running for President, didn’t you? (If you read this write DMV4PTOUS in the comments. Whatever you do, don’t write anything in the comments that gives away that this isn’t a serious campaign for President. If people don’t read this and think it’s serious the comment will be hilarious.) If you need help with moving expenses please contact me, and if you wish to vote for me I would still encourage you to contact me. If I do not have the votes to win, I plan on directing my voters to other quality candidates. Thanks for your time and I would like to thank you in advance for your vote.
