[PotUS] On War, Peace, and Voting

Day 2,214, 14:34 Published in USA USA by Azazel Romanov


I have a few things to cover in this article, which is going to focus on our foreign affairs in an abstract way, and a definite way. I will also be touching upon ATO, which is upcoming (Christmas comes early on the 15th). I hope you enjoy the show.

War With Ireland?

Well not quite. As previously mentioned in both US and Irish Media, our two countries decided upon a rental agreement for the regions of Cork and Wexford. This means we will be paying 90,000k monthly (20k for Cork, 50k for Wexford, and another 20k for tax reimbursement and compensation for loss of the Irish shield), and in return we receive Iron and a 20% bonus to our war machine. Before we get into the “war,” here is a very points that need to be made.

First, we will only be taking Cork and Wexford. Obviously I cannot control everyone, but I advise you hit hard for those two regions, and focus on other prios on any other day. Any regions taken other than those two will be RW’d back to Ireland with upmost haste.

Second, we won’t be NEing Ireland back to give their shield a little less pressure during the course of the war. They are taking a hit for this, and we should respect them for it. I’m very appreciative of Irish cooperation in this endeavor.

Third, the war will be ended as soon as it can be. We have other priorities and allies to assist. I don’t want the agreement with Ireland to consume the rest of our time this term. This is why I urge you to only concentrate on the battles for Cork and Wexford, and for American regions. Otherwise, direct your attention elsewhere.


American Peace

Aside from the Irish rental agreement and other possible agreements, you won’t be seeing the US getting involved actively in any wars this term, and hopefully the next. Last month I made it a priority to stabilize and keep us even footed, and this month is to make sure we can continue standing up and shaking hands. Americans have a passion for fighting, I know it, you know it, and the world is used to it. Provocation and War are two things we’ve been pretty good at the past few years, but I say it’s time to show the eWorld a USA that can be a bit calmer and calculating. A lot of our past actions have been made on emotion, spirit, and spur of the moment. Because of this, we’ve earned a reputation as being unreliable, unpredictable, unstable, raucous, reckless, and a little rude.

While I admit, I love war as much as the next American, there has to be a time, a place, and reason. A good reason. I understand this might be a little more boring, but the results begin to show themselves in time. We earn a greater reputation, a greater respect, and above all, greater allies. Do I mean different allies? Not necessarily, simply that the countries we claim as friends begin to start saying the same of us on a regular basis, rather than when needed. With greater clout, comes greater opportunity. What we earn is greater security for our country, more chances for peaceful expansion, and a simple peace of mind. But this might be discomforting to some, and I understand why. We sometimes consider a lack of war to be a lack of honor.

Peace can sometimes be seen as appeasement, cowardice, and weakness. What we stand to lose is a loss of pride and dignity. Let me remind you that despite a desire for a more responsible USA, that doesn’t mean we have to be weak about it. We still fight for allies around the world, and we still have a military capability stronger than many. Restraint is not to be considered a weakness, it simply makes us stronger for the moments when we are truly needed to answer the call. Humility is not cowardice, it simply means we know when to fight with words rather than weapons. Diplomacy is not appeasement, it means we get what we want without losing what we have.

When the chance to fight arises, always ask what the other options are before jumping in. If fighting is only one of three or four, consider taking the others first. It saves us not only then, but also a lot of possible trouble in the long-term.


ATO Instruction

Expect further information on this from the DHS and from the WHPR. For now, I’ll give you the red meat. Our ATO candidate for American Freedom Alliance (or whatever they decide to call themselves on the 15th) will be former President and MoFA Extraordinaire Artela. So be sure to vote for her on the 15th, and grant the country a real gift going into the holiday (aside from Iron and overall wellbeing).

Repeating for clarity: VOTE FOR ARTELA IN THIS PARTY ON THE 15TH!


Again, expect more information on this from DHS, WHPR, and Artela herself. Bound to be a good show.

That wraps up this presidential update. If you have questions or areas you would like me to address later, let me know. Any concerns/comments, let me know as well. As always, vote this up, support government media, and write a little bit yourself.

Maybe I'm missing something, but that doesn't look like 28%. And for a nobody joke who nobody would make CP, yet... he made CP twice... how does that make you feel, Obviously-Not-John-Galt.

He had no competition.. all blockers. The month before the other candidates at least gave the appearance of wanting the gig. And two clickers usually vote for incumbents anyway.

Now, WHO is John Galt?

I have a feeling you're not understanding the core concept here. But that's not surprising in the least. Thanks for the line on cheap Cowboys vs Packer tickets, even if it was a failed attempt at harassment.

No clue what you are talking about... but luxury suites ain't cheap boy

Talostastic

Guess it depends on your personal budget. Thanks for cluing me in that, even though I'm no whale, I'm still leaps and bounds ahead of you.

Ronald Gipper Reagan
Ronald Gipper Reagan Day 2,216, 15:36

Really? You can afford $20,000 for a luxury suite for one game?

Great. The # of people in the eUSA who can afford that are only a few, like trust fund Oblige.

So yes, I can't afford to spend 20 k on a football game. so?

Talostastic
Talostastic Day 2,216, 16:17

Your obsession with other people's money, especially Oblige's, is truly telling.

Especially since, from the resume you've tried to brag about, the only money you've ever made in your life has been from working for politicians or lobbying groups. Groups that produce nothing, but ask for donations so they can operate.

Like a leech attached to a host. The host produces the blood, the leech takes it, producing nothing of use in return.

Ronald Gipper Reagan
Ronald Gipper Reagan Day 2,216, 16:58

There are a few politicians or groups who do a lot of good. They may be a minority, but there are some good ones

Ronald Gipper Reagan
Ronald Gipper Reagan Day 2,216, 16:59

and Oblige did not earn anything. He is a silver spoon

Talostastic
Talostastic Day 2,216, 20:01

You've never earned anything. You've never created anything. You're just a leech, stuck to the arm of society. You may as well be on welfare, for all that you contribute to society.

My sides are in orbit. I've read your articles, which are always some form of fiction, even when presented as fact.

I can only imagine how terrible your fiction will be in novel form. Oh god, this is the best day ever.

Can I read it?
