The world didn't end, so now I'm gonna make good on all this:
*If I am elected, I will keep party leaders and MU commanders in the loop and share in the responsibility of informing the public, organizing members and maintaining a united front. I will trust community leaders to lead their communities and provide them with whatever assets and information they need to do so effectively. -DETAILS HERE
*If I am elected, I will help boost activity and retention through a series of domestic initiatives. We need to focus on not only the new players, but also the two clickers and even those older players who are growing bored after years of repetition. General activity makes election activity easier. -DETAILS HERE
*If I am elected, I will restructure parts of the government for maximum communication and efficiency. We need teams of people coordinating closely to help us navigate battles and potential alliances, as well as our domestic initiatives. Additionally, if a job is really just a title, then it's going to stop existing. There is work to be done. No messing around. -DETAILS HERE
*If I am elected, I will overhaul the Department of Homeland Security to turn it into a PTO fighting machine. Being defensive isn't good enough, we must also be offensive. A comprehensive assault on these infiltrators is what it's going to take to get us off the ropes so we can eventually start regaining bonuses and getting the eUS back in the shape it needs to be. There are many angles by which we can approach this, and we need to be doing all of the angles.
Point 4: All of The Angles
I am not content to give up on the ATO. I realize people are weary and tired and a few even want to give up entirely and think we should start negotiating terms of our surrender. Fuggedaboutit.
For me personally, I am not convinced that we have actually done all that we can do. I think we underestimated the threat from the beginning. I think there was a fair amount of denial going on about what caused this predicament in the first place. And I think those things, combined with general burnout of some older players and laziness of others, has stopped us from actually fighting this PTO as hard as we can. We've held them off, sure. But that's not good enough. We have to beat them. And if we can't beat them and we end up losing this nation to PTOers, we need to be able to say with perfect confidence that we did absolutely everything we possibly could to save our country. Or at least I do.
The Department of Homeland Security isn't a bad idea, but unfortunately it was just very underdeveloped from the start. The main purpose of DHS was two-fold- Eliminate enemy multis and utilize the media to keep the nation on alert. Both good things, I suppose, but if that's seriously the beginning and the end of the plan, I'm not sure why we bothered.
DHS needs to be as offensive as it is defensive, if not more so. Yes, hunt multis. Yes, work with the public to find threats the government misses. Additionally, though, they should be at the forefront of organizing ATO efforts during elections. They should be developing and executing strategies to eliminate threats even after elections. The team we need in DHS cannot have a split focus. This can't be just another job they throw onto the pile and perform half-assed. They need to be 100% PTO killers 100% of the time.
As I said before, there are a number of angles by which we can approach ATO. We need to use all of them. That means efforts on the part of State, Defense, Immigration, CIA and DHS, as well as the PoTUS and the VP and even Interior. We all need to have this goal of eliminating the PTO at the front of our minds at all times. Everything from infiltration to elimination of multis to overpowering their numbers strategically to driving them out of the eUS needs to be on the table. It needs to be carefully orchestrated and executed so we can say we really did all that we can do... and that means we all need to be on board.
What I'm asking for is one big push. One big, balls out, no holds barred push against the PTOers. Let's do literally everything we can and see where it gets us. Let's make this our top priority for the next month or two and see what we can accomplish. I think we can do significantly more than we have been. This is not a lost cause until we stop trying.
I wish I could provide more details and let you know EXACTLY what I have in mind. It's boner-inducing. But unfortunately, the PTOers are watching and I'd rather them not know what's coming until it's happening on their faces.
