[DMV4CP] A Treatise on Nationalism and Leadership

Day 2,140, 17:01 by DMV3


Is there a place for nationalism in eRepublik? What does it mean to be eCanadian? What is leadership and how does it relate to eRepublik? These are all things I have asked myself over the course of my time as your President, and my answers to these questions are the reason I stand before you today asking you to reelect me as your President.

I do not believe nationalism has a place in eRepublik, I don't believe the Canadian people have been best served in the past by electing the best "Canadian." What I do believe in is following the rule of law as established in the Constitution and laws of our Nation. I believe we are judged as a nation by how we conduct ourselves with our friends and our enemies. And most of all I believe leadership is the ability to make decisions based on what is in front of you as opposed to conducting a poll and leading from behind.

If you think I'm not Canadian enough, don't vote for me. If you think I'm not nationalist enough or subservient enough, then don't vote for me because I can not change that to get elected. Over the course of this term I believe I have proven my ability to make the right decisions in the face of strong opposition, I have proven that I can make choices that while politically difficult for me are in the best interest of the majority of Canadians.

This term we joined Circle of Trust, lowered taxes, and built closer relations with the US. All of these decisions while causing an uproar with my opposition are extremely popular with the majority of Canadians and are the right direction for Canada. I have also kept in close contact with the Spanish government and have begun negotiations to take back our remaining regions. This is my record and this is why you should reelect me your President.

A reelection campaign is mostly about the incumbent, his record, and accomplishments. My opponents know they can not attack my accomplishments, so instead they attack my character. They insinuate I'm a PTOer, they claim I'm not interested in what Canadians want, but the fact is my record speaks for its self. I have served honorably and lead this country in the direction the majority of Canadians desire, and for this reason I would like to ask for your support in your party primaries and in the upcoming election on the fifth.

Didn't Klop fire you for not doing your job as Deputy Minister of Defense?

Just curious, what has DMV3 done to warrant that comment?

I suppose it depends on where your loyalties lie. Are you in fact dedicated to the betterment of eCan, or is your reign as eCan Prez little more than a stepping stone to future political endeavors in the eUSA? Because frankly that is the sort of vibe many of us are getting. Perhaps eCan nationalism makes no sense to you because eAmerican nationalism is too ingrained in your psyche.

DMV3
DMV3 Day 2,140, 17:27

American nationalism is actually worse as far as I'm concerned. This is a game, I consider these entities teams more than nations. Nations have a working economy and have a political system that is not one dimensional.

As far as your accusation that I'm going to abandon Canada, I'm staying long term win or lose. I'm currently looking for a Canadian MU to move PG here because I will be staying.

Quimbie Muffins
Quimbie Muffins Day 2,140, 17:32

Good to hear. Good luck to you. I am just telling what I believe the general consensus of eCan is right now. I believe you've worked hard and that you've tired to implement the things you feel might help eCan in at least the short term... don't expect a free ride is all. The politics of eCan are sloppy. Tears will be shed.

Punisher FC Day 2,140, 22:57

Looking? You know full well I have an empty one. Which leads me to believe your intentions aren't true. You've barely said a peep to me yet you and I have had good relations in the past both politically and militarily as a former PG. That leads me to believe you're hiding something. If this isn't the case I'd love to be wrong. My spider sense is usually pretty good about these things.

DMV3 Day 2,141, 05:06

Chance I will take it. I have been asking a lot of people for help finding one.

Nationalism, thanks to a horrible political module, has been twisted into something unrecognizable. Really does mean nothing in this game.
May whoever can the best job leading and running the government be elected IMO.

Don't accuse him and judge him with RL criteria.

No more money deals with the enemy Spain!

I dont care where anyone is from, unless its Spain or Brampton

DMV3 Day 2,140, 20:17

Is fighting against our allies ok? Addy Lawrence just won the BH for Venezuela against Mexico.

crisfire
crisfire Day 2,140, 20:19

I wouldnt think so but you should take it up with him

Addy Lawrence
Addy Lawrence Day 2,141, 05:58

Venezuela lost the Div 4 battle I fought in.

You singlehandedly foisted allies on me and I didn't vote for you. Neither did 7 out of 10 other voters. Your opinion of who our allies should be is in the minority.

The only difference is that you are in the CP chair, and that circumstance will change in less than a week.

DMV3
DMV3 Day 2,141, 06:31

You do realize Mexico was our ally before I was elected, don't you? Oh wait you don't because you left during the wipe. Are you going to fight against all our allies if Acacia is elected? That will go over well with our friends.

Care to answer donation questions CP? How can a person standing for re-election 'donate' 50,000 cc to the treasury and expect to remain to clear of prejudicing the outcome work when such donations will be needed next month just to renew MPPs brought about by an unsustainable tax policy?

Marshal858
Marshal858 Day 2,141, 04:40

Klop did it by funding the treaty with Spain and that was heralded as a good thing!

Marshal858
Marshal858 Day 2,141, 04:50

eCan has a history of Presidents and others making these kinds of large contributions. To the point about tax policy, it is sustainable with donations, so that those who don't have as much can continue to pay lower taxes and grow for the good of eCanada, there are as you may have noticed more people donating than just DMV3

So owning a MU from the United States isn't considered conflict of interest? Lets not even worry about where he used to be from, or why he is doing anything. I have never heard of in actual history of people willing electing a commander of a military unit based in another country. Not one time has he actually gave a good reason for why he wanted to move to Canada and run for President within a few days of doing so. Simple political ambition, he could not use his debit card to purchase the office of PotUS so he decided to move up north and throw on the "I do it for you" slogan to get a few medals and better his reputation in America.

"This term we joined Circle of Trust, lowered taxes, and built closer relations with the US."

After a whole term this is what he considers his "accomplishments" and lowering taxes isn't even a job of the administration it is Congressional, just a simple vote. So you see here he considers him imposing the CoT and "closer" relations with the US his core policy and main focus for this term, who knows what the next one would hold? I will say by far he has not been the worst President eCan has had myself and a few others come to mind. But if just for once you'd read through the lines like you failed to do with the pariah Presidents of the past. I promise you that ulterior motives would before very visible and easily understandable as to why they are there.

Also, bought votes are bought.

Wes Lewis
Wes Lewis Day 2,140, 22:00

Buying votes, for articles to make them seem more important or accepted by a majority of people, another shady and intentional tactic used to distract and convey a false message.

DMV3
DMV3 Day 2,141, 05:10

I don't have to buy votes all my articles get this many votes or more without buying anything. It is called having friends. Maybe look into it?

New Faustian Man
New Faustian Man Day 2,148, 11:01

Lol, who would buy just 90 odd votes!? The lowest VC offer is 50, but anyone with 1000+ subscribers is probs gonna top that anyway. Also, I always thought people bought votes in order to get their article better coverage, not "to make them seem more important or accepted by a majority of people" xD

Wes Lewis
Wes Lewis Day 2,148, 12:36

In a nation where 30 votes will get you into the top 5 buying votes especially when you have 1,000 subs IS meant to be deceptive.

New Faustian Man
New Faustian Man Day 2,148, 21:36

He's trying to be "deceptive"? Couldn't disagree more. Sounds totally paranoid imo.

Joshur
Joshur Day 2,140, 22:51

So is the money that you bought votes with coming out of your supposed 50,000 donation, or?

New Faustian Man
New Faustian Man Day 2,148, 11:04

The article has only 92 votes -- what bought votes are you talking about?

Joshur
Joshur Day 2,148, 13:16

He bought 50 votes at the time. It's known, since it shot up to 50 votes within like half an hour.

"I do not believe nationalism has a place in eRepublik, I don't believe the Canadian people have been best served in the past by electing the best "Canadian.""

Really? Bruck. Jacobi. Chucky Norris. Dade Pendwyn. TemujinBC. Acacia. Sperry. Homer. I beg to differ.

"If you think I'm not Canadian enough, don't vote for me. If you think I'm not nationalist enough or subservient enough, then don't vote for me because I can not change that to get elected."

I'm not voting for you primarily because you campaigned on the fact that you would not join an alliance and then you immediately joined one. Not only did you join one, you did it in a fashion inconsistent with how eCanada joined Asgard. You lied and you disrespected the precedent set for the process by our country.

"All of these decisions while causing an uproar with my opposition are extremely popular with the majority of Canadians"

Extremely popular, eh, we'll see on election day how extremely popular it is.

"My opponents know they can not attack my accomplishments, so instead they attack my character."

You spearheaded joining CoT less than a week after saying you would not join an alliance. This is both an accomplishment (you joined CoT), and a lie that affected your character. This is not an attack, this is a statement of fact. You lied. You accomplished something and it revealed that you are a liar.

Maxwell Wolf
Maxwell Wolf Day 2,141, 06:17

...i don't understand where were they these so engaged debates and critics when eCanada was wiped and the media had 2 to 3 articles ?

....vote DMV for another term and let him finish the job.. .........

Maxwell Wolf
Maxwell Wolf Day 2,141, 07:18

come on , just because eUS citizen getting away from their 10% worker tax does not mean its a PTO of Canada !!

Ok he got eCanada into CoT, mended ties with the eUSA?
This is bad?

Most of all he has got people interested in eCanada again.
He got old Tanks to return.

Oh keep in mind I am Canadian, live in Toronto one of the best alliances this game has ever had was eCanada and eUSA.

Leo Balzac
Leo Balzac Day 2,141, 08:18

yes, then it died. All good things must come to an end etc etc. Too much betrayal and butthurt on both sides to go back now.

Technician
Technician Day 2,141, 08:25

^^ I doubt that, think DMV, already proved the ties can be mended.
FYI back in the crazy days most players both sides respected each other, they refused to attack each other.

Leo Balzac
Leo Balzac Day 2,141, 08:28

How did he prove anything? An eUS citizen mending fences with his eUS ex-peers? This is not representative of the overall mood in this nation, no matter how loudly the CPF and DMV squawk.

Addy Lawrence
Addy Lawrence Day 2,141, 12:57

Tech;

Giving eUS players eCan citizenship and then saying that eCan citizens love the eUS does not constitute a revitalized Bromance.

And I think you meant to say "he has got eAMERICAN people interested in eCanada again", and I think that ePoland and eSpain did that for eAMERICANS, not the Department of Motor Vehicles

I sure trust the guy who disrespects everyone in eCan in their party feed, religiously supports DMV, and knows nothing about eCan as our MoE.
