[Statham4POTUS] - The Announcement -

Day 1,893, 06:18 by Jason Statham Jr


"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."
-Abraham Lincoln -

Hello citizens of the eUSA, I am officially announcing my intention to run for POTUS.

Are you tired of not having any influence in the decisions made by former govts?
I think you are and I intend to change that!



If elected I intend to give the people their voice back, the power to have an opinion, something that is your right to have in a democratic system.

If elected I will make your voice heard, you elect the POTUS, your opinion counts and should be heard by the govt.

When it was decided that we have to join CoT, were you asked what is your personal opinion about it?
I don't think so!

If i get elected, my government will be a government of the people, by the people and for the people!



This is my first article of a series of 3 that will help you to decide who you want as your POTUS.

First topic - Power to the people!

We are a trial member of CoT atm, you, the people of the eUSA did not have a word in the decision that was made by a group of people that are not even 5% total of our active population.
I do not like that, do you? I don't think so, because of that, if elected I will ask you what is your opinion of CoT, do you like it or dislike it?
You will have the power to decide if we continue in CoT or we choose another destiny.
I'm not saying I don't want to give CoT a chance, I'm just saying you should decide our future!



Second topic - The Pros and Cons of CoT

The Pros

CoT is an "pro-equal" alliance, what does this mean? Well it means all of the members have equal voting powers.
Being in an alliance gives us some benefits, especially when we face serious internal threats.
CoT with the eUS has the potential to become a force to be reckoned with in the new world.

The Cons

CoT is formed by some ecountries we don't really like such as FyRoM, Indonesia, Chile or even maybe Bulgaria
We risk losing some old allies, such as Albania and Greece.
Albania has been an important help for us in the fight against the AFA and Greece is one of the few EDEN members we still like and are friends with.

These are some pros and cons for you, the citizens of the eUSA to study and think about.



Third topic - Military strategy

This subject will depend on what you the citizens of the eUS will decide about us and CoT but one thing is certain, we will continue with the low bonuses strategy against the AFA.
We never know what is in store for us in the future. So I won't tell you that we WILL invade a ecountry.
I don't want to promise something and have things make me a liar.
That doesn't mean that I am not willing to invade another ecountry because given the right opportunity I will.

“The soldier is the Army. No army is better than its soldiers. The Soldier is also a citizen.
In fact, the highest obligation and privilege of citizenship is that of bearing arms for one’s country”

George S. Patton



Fourth topic - National Communication

"What is the shortest word in the English language that contains the letters: abcdef? Answer: feedback. Don't forget that feedback is one of the essential elements of good communication."
Unknown Source

In the fight against the AFA communication is very important, good communication between the govt and the political parties, military units and congress is essential!
If elected, there will be 1 time per week a meeting between the POTUS and the rest of the eUSA, this includes everybody!
The objective of this meeting will be to give a even bigger voice to the citizens of the eUSA, the meeting will take place in a IRC channel i will create and make public where anybody can come and make his/her opinion and ideas heard!.

Feedback, is one of the most priceless information a leader can have, thats why i will be creating a new position in my cabinet.

Communications Director

He/she will be in charge of the communication between the POTUS, the cabinet, the congress,
the political parties and the military units to ensure the communication is at its best.
The Communications Director will also be in charge of moderating the IRC channel during the meeting and ensure everybody gets to speak and make his/her voice heard!



I would like to present you my VP Mazzy Cat



I am very excited to have her as my VP, I picked her because she is the kind of person that will tap you on your shoulder and ask you if you have considered all the options before making a decision and will give you the best advice possible. I wanted a VP that you, the citizens of the eUSA can trust.

Thank you for reading and stay tuned for my next article o/

So basically you want to continue the low resources strategy and bring in some more boring ATO stuff... yeah, promising... lol

"CoT is formed by some ecountries we don't really like such as FyRoM, Indonesia, Chile or even maybe Bulgaria"
Macedonian never was our friend, now they see advantages to a friendship and are willing to give it a shot. Indos are dipshits IMO. We are never going to be tight with them. Chile and Bulgaria were big time bro's in TERRA until we shit on them.

What are the alternatives you suggest? I see three possibilities:
> No alliance = No major wars (everyone bitches about no wars) & No help fighting the PTO.
> EDEN = US being led around by the nose and continued outside influence.
> TWO = Serbia

Which one are you favoring?

"We risk losing some old allies, such as Albania and Greece."
Albania and Greece are such great allies. They cry for us to fight for them and when we do something it is "Oh, we must protect ourselves, sorry.". :P

"We are a trial member of CoT atm, you, the people of the eUSA did not have a word in the decision that was made by a group of people that are not even 5% total of our active population."
Key words here are "trial member". Do you have any idea how an alliance is formed/joined? There would be no alliance with CoT or anyone else if there were a public referendum. You would never get a majority vote on individual points. I don't believe you understand just how many people were engaged in this decision or how it came to be. If you just want to drag it up, the primary objectors are from JCS and then not all of them are opposed.

First off, no MPP's happen with out Congresses consent. Did you know that? No alliance can be fulfilled with out them. The FA people at State have been working on this for almost 3 months. Some secret conspiracy forced through the govt. meat grinder. More like a slow, methodical tap dance involving communication between CoT HQ, US, Brazil and Russia. When the Exec had something concrete they immediately sought Congresses' input and the negotiations proceeded from there.

Thedillpickl

For the record, I am possibly the most obnoxious Congressman that the "elites" have to put up with. (I'm not even sure what 'elite' means anymore, but it is a popular term for the existing govt.) I speak my mind and bitch if I'm not satisfied. (I'm Thedillpickl in case someone doesn't know.) I work with people to change things. I don't just bad mouth things like CoT alliance for political gain. Personally I'm not overjoyed with this alliance but it is the most reasonable effort to fix much of what is ailing this country. Compare that with CTRL that I still claim was a back room deal because it was completely handled by a small group from Exec with no input from Congress, no discussion.

You were there in Congress during CoT discussions. You claim that this decision was "... made by a group of people that are not even 5% total of our active population." So are you in that elite 5% that went around the public discussion you now claim to desire? Where was your voice 3 weeks ago? Could there possibly be a connection to ST6 being disgruntled because of poor funding? Maybe you long for days of EDEN again.

I'm not sure of your motives but I will be keeping an eye on you and your word play.

Squirtious Maximus

i need to make some things clear for you

1. I am not against CoT, i am against the fact the the normal citizens of the eUS that don't get in congress did not have a word to say about the decision to join CoT and if you read my article i did say i am willing to give it a chance if the citizens of the eUS want too.

2. ST6 has NOTHING to do with this article or my campaign, i do NOT speak in the name of ST6

3. Where the hell am i bad mouthing CoT?

4. I am anti-EDEN & anti-TWO/ONE

5. POWER TO THE PEOPLE FTW

""gtfo...like pfeiffer would ever approve me or anything i do... i lol'ed really hard at that""

The single most important thing any POTUS candidate must do is to give pfeifer a BJ. The last one that managed to pull if of without it was Glove, and that was a long time ago.

If you don't do that your campaign is just a waste of time. Like JJs.
Welcome to the eUSA. And stop lying about not being an edenite.

Thedillpickl
Thedillpickl Day 1,893, 11:07

You imply CoT is the wrong thing to do because it was not announced publicly for debate. Again I point out that you were in Congress when this was being discussed. Does that mean you were in on the conspiracy to hide the CoT negotiations from the public? I don't see how you can have it both ways. Either you agree with what was said on Congress private board that the release of info to the public would be after the trial membership was in place or you failed in your duty to inform the public of the despicable deed that was being enacted upon them.

Also, does the term "Representational govt." mean anything to you? If every citizen (here or in RL) had a voice in how things are ran then there is no need for a CP or Congress. Every time a point is reached where a decision is made then the country comes to a halt and a ballot produced to be voted on by everyone. When that decision is reached we go on until the next question arises.

Do you also propose that the CP does not run FA anymore? Should private citizens of the US PM the foreign CP's and influence our relationships? If this is your stance then the PotUS is nothing more than a dog catcher with a few buttons to click.

I'm sorry if I implied that ST6 influenced your position. It is an easy assumption to make.

Mazzy Cat
Mazzy Cat Day 1,893, 11:41

Jason is not saying - let's run away from CoT. He's saying - Are we sure this is what the people want? And while there are tons of reasons to argue while this may be right or this may be wrong... In the long run this IS a game. Every single player on here has the right to play the way they enjoy. (BEFORE you all even go there - That does not mean we have to tolerate their style.) If some people feel that it would be wonderful to have their voice heard. They deserve a candidate that agrees. Not everyone agrees with that. Good for them, but don't disregard those who do.

As for the past - A person is more than entitled to disagree with their own actions and then work to improve upon them. And following the way Congress works is not a bad thing. EVEN if you disagree and strive to change that later.

I will say this once again - It's a game. Let's have fun!

I think we'll still end up in CoT since there's nowhere else to go right now, but still.. it'd be nice to be able to be heard once in awhile.

also, Dilly, you know as well as I do that Congress is basically just a rubber stamp or mostly a "yes-man", has been for a looonnnggg time.

When everyone mentions CoT as part of their political ambitions, you know the alliance has become a factor.

I don't believe in medling into other countries internal affairs but maybe you should consider what the vague and accepted blindly terms like "old allies", "traditional enemies" and countries "we do not like" mean nowadays....just like brother and brotherhood, I think they have been so overused and abused, that they have lost their meaning.

When one speaks of giving power to the people, statements like "WE do not like" need to be tested, just as much, as which alliance one should join.

In any case good luck to you and all other candidates, may you find the best future for your country....

Dilly you are being retartar sauce. He is just asking the government to stop hiding stuff and let us know what is going on. In plenty of other e-countries they hold referendums when they change alliances, why do we have to be different? If it is the right move to make, the government should easily be able to make their case to the eAmerican people.

+1 for not giving into the AFA and promising full bonuses. Win this election for the real Americans.

I can't support anyone who leaves Albania behind, I'm true to my friends. If CoT means leaving Albania behind, I'm against CoT.

I FOR 10/10. It's the right thing to grow this nation. It's been far more damaging than anything the AFA has done, which, in reality, to date is nothing. We've done it all to ourselves.

That said, Mazzy is great, and I'm sure you're a decent person too. And while a discussion in re CoT would be nice, I don't see anything seriously different in your proposals (yet) than I've seen in the last couple Admin's.

It is ofc a bonus that Pfeiffer doesn't like you, props for that.
