I'm John Largo and I am running for President of the eUnited States of America. You may have seen my announcement article here: http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/-largo4potus-the-annoucement-redux-2411524/1/20
There you will find my themes for my term in office; Diversity, Unity, Transparency, and Inclusiveness.
Now for some details and an update on last month's campaign goals:
1. Paying for the USAF - I pledged to pay for the USAF budget out of my pocket for the month of June if I was elected. If you remember, the reason I made this promise was that I supported lower taxes, and I was doing this to create an environment where a tax cut would be possible. Well the tax cut happened, so the funding of the USAF budget is no longer necessary. It looks like I did not have to be President for us to get this change.
As a side note, I believe that we need to keep taxes at the lower rate for a month or so to watch how our income is affected.
2. Public PDBs - They are going to happen. We started this in AMP without any major incidents. We will have a different hurdle with the eUS forums not having an updated eUS citizen mask. I plan to ask for an area under the Executive where citizens can ask for access and be granted viewing and posting rights to the PDBs after their eUS Citizenship is verified. I'll need some volunteers to grant access for me, and I don't expect to run out of them. As a side note, I think I read in one of DMJ's articles or maybe a forum post that he was going to have a daily PDB summary thread. That's a good step in the direction of my idea. It looks like I will not have to be President to create a change toward transparency in our government.
3. Bringing our Disparate MUs Together - I still think there is more work to be done here, but last month there were a couple of battles where the USAF fought alongside some Private MUs. This is a big step towards changing the condescending notion emitting from the government that "If you are not the Official MU then you are nothing". I will understand that as President, it is not my right to expect unquestioning obedience from the MUs of this country, but it is my job to ask for their cooperation. I want more MUs fighting together in more battles. It looks like I didn't have to be President to make the change and begin the steps toward unity.
4. Bringing everyone to the table - There are still groups of us that have been cast out by the government, and they are still vilified to this day. They are fighting back to take their fair seat at the table. But they shouldn't have to fight. It looks like I am going to have to be President to bring inclusiveness for all to the government. We need this change.
In your local party primary, I ask that you vote John Largo. A change for the better.
