Citizens of the eUSA,

~ Stolen from A Status Quo in Exile.
Tomorrow we face another election. This election chiefly pits a self-proclaimed candidate of unity against a self-proclaimed candidate of freedom. Why, then, do the parties proclaiming unity not stand united? Why, then, do the parties proclaiming freedom raise up false icons rather than promoting free elections?
We stand divided amongst ourselves. We have surrendered what empire we once held to remake this once great nation into a barren wasteland devoid of captured foreign resources. We have turned away from the world stage in favor of staring at our own navels and engaging in self-destructive wars against our brothers and sisters in the body politic.
It is humiliating to remain with our hands folded while others write history. It matters little who wins. To make a people great it is necessary to send them to battle even if you have to force them. It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep. Blood alone moves the wheels of history.
I trust not these leaders of freedom and unity who would have you follow them down their roads of democracy. Democracy is beautiful in theory; in practice it is a fallacy. Their elected governments are a mask behind which there is no face, a scaffolding behind which there is no building.
There is a road of wealth and fame, riches and power, by which we may remake this nation. This nation, built on might and trust, had been destroyed from within. The adherents of freedom have destroyed the public trust; the adherents of unity have destroyed the public might.
In times such as these we need a great man to step forward and lead us on a new path. Not a political leader clamoring for his newest elected office, not an international alliance pushing for the next set of wars, and not any kingmaker standing behind the scenes playing with our nation as if it were his personal chessboard.
We need a God amongst men. We need one man who has never stood for President of his own volition. We need one man who has been trusted with the full wealth of the nation and who has never been called into question handling it. We need one man who best represents the public citizenry of our nation. We need one man to represent the state in all things. It is the state which educates its citizens in civic virtue, gives them a consciousness of their mission and welds them into one. We need such a man to step forward and guide our ship of state.
We need one man to mold our nation so that the function of a citizen and a soldier are inseparable. We need one man who may remind us that liberty is a duty and not a right. We need one man who accepts life as duty and struggle and conquest. We need one man who understands that inactivity is death. We need one man to be the embodiment of the state.
We have one such man amongst us, a God amongst men. One who best represents the essence, function, and aims of the state. One who moreover represents the state in its absolute form, beyond party and militia, making all individuals and groups relative to his presence. The public mass, be it a crowd or an army, is vile. It needs a God amongst men to lead it, to lead the parties, to lead the militias, to lead the presidents. One citizen to be the state itself, to lead us so that all are within the state, none are outside the state, and none are against the state. One citizen, first amongst all others.
We need Publius. Dio Publius. This man, this God, may lead the rebuilding of our nation. He, as a man who has ascended to the role of a God, will lead a new Holy Empire. An American Empire.
Pakistan has Dio Brando. We have Dio Publius.
I Stand With Publius.
