[Fed] Take your bribe and shove it.

Day 1,837, 09:27 by fingerguns


As most Federalists can see, John Jay is currently in the lead for our primary, and barring a massive shift, will likely be the winner for the Federalist Party endorsement. As you may or may not know, there was a lot of discussion of bribery going on in our primary thread. This stemmed from two different factors. The first of which was Inwegen’s Cabinet Article Part 1. A lot of people said that stacking Feds on this article was intended to sway our primary towards Inwegen, and tantamount to a bribe. Anyone who has been in politics for more than a month knows that this happens every presidential election. Not to mention that Feds were stacked in a lot of cabinets, probably due to the fact that we are nationally qualified to serve. These were capable and qualified people Inwegen was promoting, so a debate ensued about whether or not he was simply trying to buy the Feds.

And now we get to the second factor, which you can clearly see below:


Colin offering to donate tanks to EZC should Inwegen lose

Now, I’m not a law expert, but clearly Colin’s offered donation is obviously a bribe to make us pick someone other than Inwegen. He even openly admits that this is a bribe. For those of you who think Colin was bluffing, you clearly have never known him or seen his medal count. I would also like to add that this move was done by Colin alone, and no other candidate approved or encouraged his actions. Now, I’m not going to lie, 10,000 Q7 tanks is a lot. Easy Company would be swimming in tanks for a few months no doubt. If you’re going to make a bribe, you may as well make it enticing. And no doubt, Easy Company would gain a lot from this offer. But here’s the problem, Feds don’t take bribes.

Not going to lie, despite the debate, bribery, and controversy, this month there were great candidates. Inwegen is qualified, John Jay is qualified, and John Killah is qualified. And that also made this month’s decision particularly hard to make. The Federalist Party practically interrogated each candidate on the forum to get answers to every policy question you could think of. We challenged the candidates to prove something to us, to prove why they should be elected president, not just win our endorsement. The Feds care more for country then they care for party motives or personal promotion. If John Jay, or even Inwegen if he makes a comeback, wins our primary, they will do so because the Feds thought they were best for country and not for our gain. One of our core values is standing for government integrity, and we intend to keep it that way.

So, in speaking for the Federalist Party, we reject your 10,000 Q7 bribe. If offered, we will refuse. If sent, they will be sent back. There is no negotiation, there is no further discussion.

We remain proud, we remain horny, and we will not be bought.

Obviously we Feds don't take bribes. It damages our integrity not to mention its a turn-off. So it's completely against our P/H nature.

You:

Me:
"Since today is bribe the Feds day I will offer my own enticement to get you to think about your decisions and how it will effect all of us.. for months to come."

Is it tacky? Yes it is

I wonder what gets someone this adamant about NOT supporting wiggy to cough up 10k q7 tanks. As stated in the article, I am certain Colin was not joking about it either.

On the other hand, I am seeing AFA and other partie's congressmen voting for the same thing in the NE against china so I totally need to read up on what is happning over in the states.

Candor
Candor Day 1,837, 17:46

All great stuff that you won't take bribes to pick a candidate, I wouldn't either, that's integrity.

But if someone wanted to give me 10k q7's as a result of how I would vote anyway, the acceptance wouldn't be a malfeasance or breach of integrity.

The concern might be the APPEARANCE of malfeasance or a lack of integrity. But not a violation in itself.

Integrity isn't a suit, and you don't wear it for others to admire. If you have it you've nothing to prove. Take the tanks

Iliya The Great
Iliya The Great Day 1,837, 18:51

My goal was accompolished in the comments section of that article and all the conversation since. I doubt my offer had any significant impact on the primary either way.. nor did I ever think it would.

It wasn't about the Feds, it was about being engaged.

Win, lose, take them, don't take them.. if I still have 10k tanks this weekend, we'll figure out some other way to hand them out.

fingerguns
fingerguns Day 1,837, 20:09

I think it had a bigger impact than you realize, Colin. But probably not the impact you were hoping for.

Mr. Collin.

I am doing a giveaway this Christmas, handing out as much tanks as possible to anyone I can, and all that the DHS approves on my Christmas list.
Check out my article here: http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/-ea-christmas-miracles-win-15-gold-get-gifts--2165289/1/20

Please consider donating any amount of tanks towards this. =]

Iliya The Great
Iliya The Great Day 1,837, 20:50

Yeah.. I haven't been on Fed forums in a few years but the email I recieved as I posted last time described it as "a curious and massive spread change in the final hours before close".

lol.. I doubt I had much to do with that. xD

Tell us more about integrity please..

Cant wait for the day we can vote in game again.

The days of the "Couldn't Win in a Real Election PotUS" need to come to and end.

When certain people can revive old accounts and get caught, voting for Inwegen, yet the Feds suddenly have a massive surge towards him, I, question that.

No offense to the good peeps of the feds, but like every top 5, you have a couple of dirty ass rats in your ranks, sorry : ( And those seem to vote for the same clique every singe time.

Bia Pandora
Bia Pandora Day 1,838, 04:55

And not for nothing, Colin Lantrip's presidency did more for the the people of this country individually than this group of "fgts" has for the past year.

I consider his term to be one of the Top 3 I've ever seen for citizen care and involvement, if not number 1.

He deserves some respect from us all. Personally, I think his offer should have seriously opened up some peoples eyes and made them question why someone would offer so much to get people to vote for ANYONE but Inwegen.

Bia Pandora
Bia Pandora Day 1,838, 04:56

The Great Ape = Colin Lantrip for those that don't know.

Proof? This will be investigated.

Bia Pandora

You've been discussing it with people all morning. Please don't act surprised here for the masses.

fingerguns
fingerguns Day 1,838, 14:54

I haven't been discussing 'people reviving old accounts and getting caught.'

We have only had this forum for a couple months. Someone who signed up in September showing up for a primary in November isn't a crime, Bia. It's not even slightly suspicious.

But then again, I don't suffer from severe paranoia.

I'll keep wasting my Saturday gathering info for you, though.

Bia Pandora
Bia Pandora Day 1,838, 15:38

Ok so I'm delusional and pfeiffer didn't get caught reviving old accounts to vote for Inwegen? You know it's one thing to have something happen that was perhaps beyond your control and admit to it, and something completely different to bullshit and call someone a liar and paranoid. That is just wrong. You are just a piece of work.

fingerguns
fingerguns Day 1,838, 15:41

'Caught reviving old accounts'

What does this mean? What exactly is the accusation here?

Iliya The Great
Iliya The Great Day 1,838, 15:51

Is it true JJ went from 8 up to 5 down in the closing hours of a 3(?) day forum primary?

What were the final vote tallies? I haven't seen.

Yeah Colin, it looks like people switched their votes at the last minute. That's not a security issue, that's people being butts. Regardless, I'm gathering as much data as I can for you guys (JJ's people).

As of right now, we allow people to change their votes during primaries.

JJ 42
Inwegen 44
JK 5

I am not JJ's people, you are already aware. We are not even friends in-game as I write this.. xD

You have to admit that is pretty odd, abt a 15% swing right at the end of 3 days of voting?

Ultimately the Fed primary is the Feds business and I am not a Fed.


I donate 2k tanks each to ST6 and JCS so far.. 6k to go.

fingerguns
fingerguns Day 1,838, 16:35

That's like 4 people changing their votes.

I don't think it's especially odd, although I don't understand people who do that sort of thing intentionally.

Regardless, everything has been gone over. There's no reason to think the primary was unfairly manipulated.

Iliya The Great
Iliya The Great Day 1,838, 16:45

meh.. is what it is and nobody is really surprised.


Went ahead and sent 2k to EZ, bigcdizzle can make them return them if he would like. 4k to go..
