[USA VP] Honesty above all!

Day 2,039, 08:29 by Luis Nordmann



Hello fellow eAmericans,

Today is probably one of the hardest days I've had around erepublik and it is one of the days I will certainly have troubles making a rational point because of the emotional weight of the last days events. Still, regardless of what happened, I do hope this is enough to start shaking the nation a bit and for us to learn from our own very mistakes, although this turn of events can be quite saddening, I did not forget my obligations towards the nation as your Vice President.

There are no easy words for what I am about to say but it is with the greatest dignity and honesty that I say it.




National mood and AMP events


For the ones more distracted lately, the American Military Party (AMP) was PTOed by a serbian sleeping agent last month named Free Area. No one in the party leadership knew about him being a PTOer and no one certainly expected that turn of events. This action damaged heavily the party and destroyed a big part of the reputation many members of the leadership spent doing their best to keep it and keep it up the standards. For a whole month the AMP was a tainted party from where everyone wanted to run because it was filled with Serbian PTOers.

After last PP elections, the threat was cleaned and the party was handed back to its legitimate leadership and to the legitimate candidate John Killah who got back to us with the purpose to revive the party and bring us back to where we were.

As you might have also noticed, the current AMP Party President John Killah decided to retire his position as well as all political offices he still held and made me the current acting President of the American Military Party. He left me a big task on my shoulders, something that being really honest, I'm not entirely sure if I'm ready for it or even prepared. I've lead AMP before during 2 straight months and a lot of things got done, but this entirely different, the party was PTOed and the reputation it held was partially lost in the middle, in the meanwhile, either due to the emotional stress this caused around the leadership or because of the situation itself, the existing problem of leadership infighting just aggravated. It feels like rocks in my heart to say that... I have my quota of guilt on those internal fights. Once again I can understand how Sarah was a catalyst of making JK take this kind of decision. I admit some people (myself included) need to be slapped from time to time to know their place and stop doing nonsense but well... hard lessons usually stick better and I had some quite hard to learn lately.


Get rid of toxic atmosphere.

AMP has been my home since I was eBorn and that home is nearly in ruins and in this moment of crises I have to play the builder and fix it. Something John Killah pointed out and well was the toxic atmosphere we have right now in our country. Honestly.. I don't care if it's hatred between AMP-Feds or whatever other party. I've had enough of it. I can tolerate many things but I will not tolerate any more sorts of slander towards any legitimate party nor I will promote such things. It is about time we all start learning from our own mistakes. No one is more than anyone, despite the party affiliation and above that, we are all citizens of eUSA and that.. is something we tend to forget sometimes.

In the end of the day, there are a few groups of people I would like to direct myself:



To the American Military Party members and leadership of whom I am now the head and part of it, please, enough hostility. Let's do things together and restore the friendly environment and the reputation this party once had. Help me help you. We all can do this! If you need me, feel free to message me and to hit me up on IRC, we can all recover our pride and our valor. Remember: strong parties make strong nations and this is the time to prove our strength! Like Leonardo Da Vinci would say "In prosperous times, the genius is hidden. It is in crises and adversity that the genius will be reveled!". To John Killah and Saraht0ga, my highest of gratitude and warmth for being side by side with you all this time and I do hope to find you all around and I wish you all the best of luck in your future endeavors.

To the Federalist Party, I've been with many of you, I've seen the friendship and warmth around you. Word of advice: Don't ever lose it. Don't let the douchebaggery prejudice you. Some of my greatest friends are feds and are possibly the greatest persons I've seen around and to whom I have the highest of gratitude. Never lose yourselves into meaningless fights.

To the We The People, I have some great friends here too, I've seen you guys flourish during the last months, continue your hard work because you are obviously succeeding!

To the United States Works Party, I might not know many of you but I had the opportunity to work with some of you. You guys are competent and certainly a marble block in our nation, you guys might still have an horde of zombies but you managed to make out the fun of it and do something awesome of it.

To the 6th parties, don't follow the bad examples of us top 5, if you ever make it to the top 5, make sure you keep the friendship and the good atmosphere inside your own parties.

To the new players... look at the old ones and please... avoid our mistakes and be better than any of us was or could ever be. Never give up despite the doubts you might have in achieving something, just grit your teeth, listen to the advices of the old and you'll realize soon enough your e-dreams will be at your grasp. You are the future of eUSA and above all, be yourselves.

Now.. enough AMP and national mood chat. It's time for serious business.



Department of Defense





Many of you are probably wondering what happened to the surveys the DoD ran a few days ago, well the data is already collected and is now being worked to be released as statistical data. Expect the survey results in a few days most likely, I will publish them in here, my own paper.

Structural changes

Although I won't develop much regarding this subject, the DoD is currently working changes on the USAF in order to make our logistics a bit easier and work out things a bit more efficient for the newer players. Stay tuned because in the next days I intend to give you detailed news of the implied changes.

War Concerns

Yes America, we are being invaded by 7 countries right now and I have no other way to say this but to tell you that a wipe is a quite possible scenario in the near future. Although the wipe won't last because it's very hard to keep a big country such as USA wiped for a long time, the campaigns against TWO will be long and they will make this nation sweat in order to bring the fact back to TWO.

I would like although, before anything else to thank a very specific Military Unit from Brazil named CAT, they are the top 1 MU of our ally and they have been helping us in the battles we need. To you guys, thank you for you support! I also would like to thank the Brazilian government for their help regarding ATO support.

I would also like to thank Croatia and Albania for their ATO help and also in some occasions their military help. You guys, along Brazil have been always our truest allies.

I would also like to thank CoT for the support (or lack of it sometimes) during this big war.

America... TWO is poking us with a sting but what they don't know is that soon the american beast side will wake up and when that happens, they better run because we will stand stronger and united. Remember soldiers, follow your orders and defend our country! This is a call to arms!





Congressional elections and ATO

As many of you noticed, the AFA moved their new party back to the top 5, we are trying to kick them out, so if you want to help the current ATO movements, please join the party with lowest number of members.

CURB THE AFA.

Since the AFA might actually hold a top 5 party position when it comes down to the CP elections, Unity elections are now being rethought and reformulated in order to meet the standards demanded by our population.





Thank you all for reading/listening to my venting out and I do hope we can be greater than we already are!

This is your Vice President Dr Luis Sentieiro signing off.

Top party officials, maybe most T4 members, hate each other and argue incessantly about nothing important. They slander each other apparently and you want this to stop. Meanwhile, these same people are designing the new Unity elections and will be the ones choosing the next president. Hmmmmm..... Maybe the title "two clicker" is a point of pride?

Not sure why you qualify the admonition against slander. Might be a good idea to avoid it in all circumstances.

In addition to news about your party we have news about the war, the ATO, elections and USAF. Honestly, has the President gone AWOL?

Thanks for the updates.

I was getting perturbed about these constant unfounded references to "corrupt". Then I read the recently published Presidential briefings. Very troubling.

olivermellors
olivermellors Day 2,040, 00:12

Luis: I just finished reading the Daily Presidential Briefs from Cerb's administration. You were part of that administration. The Briefings reveal widespread, wholesale, cheating - multying - by the players who made up our government. I suspect that has been going on for years and continues. HONESTLY, has it and is it? And HONESTLY, why is the public never told about the enormous loss of - is it millions of dollars - in assets when it occurs? Yes, I remember that bit about how only idiots and morons seek greater transparency but, HONESTLY isn't it time that we heard about these kind of things in a timely fashion, not seven months later? And isn't it time for someone to do an eNPR show about it, 'cause I like eNPR. Bring back fingerguns!! (her briefing aren't public yet).

Luis Nordmann
Luis Nordmann Day 2,040, 09:53

Quick question olivermellors, have I ever been banned or even faced a suspension for multiis? No.

If others cheat the game, they do it on their own risk.

olivermellors
olivermellors Day 2,040, 12:47

I don't want to be overly difficult or accusatory but suggest a bit more sophistication. Turning a blind eye to cheating, encouraging it, condoning it and suffering that it occur amongst our friends is a choice. It is not an entirely honest choice. It is made worse when we speak out only against our enemies. It is further aggravated when we say that our enemies are fabricating what we know is actually true. You see, I agree that cheaters should proceed at their risk: the risk that honest players will call them on it. Guys who cheat at chess run a risk too, including the risk that no self respecting player will ever invite them to their house or to a tournament. It would have been easy for you to simply say: "yes, there have been instances of cheating or close to it and, yes, greater transparency is in order". After all, its not all about just you. Difficult situation for you nevertheless and I appreciate your response. Kind regards.

Luis Nordmann
Luis Nordmann Day 2,040, 15:06

There is an honest way to call them out. It's sending a ticket to the Erepublik administration with the links of the cheaters and let them take the action. It has been always like this.

The DHS has sent many tickets to the erepublik administration over the last months with multiis lists. Most of them get banned. I know for sure some players do have multiis but I don't know who their multiis are or have any sorts of data on them all. It's as simple as that and don't think for a second that I am for cheating the game as much tempting as it might seem when we need to fight PTOers.

olivermellors
olivermellors Day 2,040, 15:33

I have to call double double buloney on you. You didn't send tickets to the admins when you had incontrovertible evidence that your friends in government were multiing. They wrote about it, bragged about it: "I'll want this post redacted when the PDB goes public, but for the people reading it now: I voted 64 times, in 4 different parties, today.

Would have been more, but I voted a bunch earlier and I need to sleep now so I can be up for church at 5 AM tomorrow.

How many times did you vote?

If your answer is one, you're not helping."


And that is only one of many similar statements and instances. I have no doubt that you have sent many tickets asking for our enemies to be banned. I just think it is more honest to be consistent. Better to be honest all the time. That is the title of your article isn't it --- Honesty above all. -- ?

Luis Nordmann
Luis Nordmann Day 2,040, 15:40

One thing is having people saying on a forum they're multiing, another entirely different is having raw data and evidence about it, which I clearly don't have. If I opened a ticket for that it'd come with no results. When you report a multii you gotta at least have something for it. For example: similar names to tie to the main one, activity logs, suspicious dead accounts that only wake up at certain moments.. things like that. Things I honestly don't have.

olivermellors
olivermellors Day 2,040, 16:28

This is breathtakingly dishonest, or maybe you just can't see your self defence mechanism at work, shielding you from the obvious. So ask yourself the obvious: if Ajay had published a forum post saying he had voted 64 times in 4 parties would you have reported him, immediately started an investigation to find out all about it, immediately advised the public about it and told them to stay the heck away from such a cheat. If Ajay had approved a scheme to obtain and sit hundreds of dead citizen accounts would you have reported him, told everyone about it and warned everyone to stay away from such a cheat? Yet, when it is your friends and the people who have the power to advance your political career and gameplay, the rules are different? Be careful here. If you tell me that you would have stood idly by and not done anything, knowing that an enemy had done these things, you are self identifying as a fool. Or maybe just those self defence mechanisms that our brains fool us with pretty constantly. Reflection required, so I will go do that now. Kind regards

Luis Nordmann
Luis Nordmann Day 2,040, 19:17

What makes you think I did not search for that kind of evidence? You're assuming something without any kind of base.

olivermellors
olivermellors Day 2,040, 23:42

Please stop. If you did do a thorough investigation just say so. I won't believe it because it is published on the forums for all to see, but at least you will have asserted something instead of these constant attempts to deflect. When my buddy tells me repeatedly he has cheated I don't need to do a big investigation to realize that he has cheated. And I act accordingly. I don't find excuses for non-action because, as your title says, honesty above all .... and that includes being honest with myself. For some reason you are unable to say that there was cheating going on. For some reason you feel that greater transparency is not required. You are certainly not alone. Perhaps best to leave it there for the moment. Kind regards

I have read many of those Daily Briefings and they are all the same, full a confessions of cheating; backroom deals being made to allow the 'Pfeifferist' to remain in power. However, now that their traitorous leader has defected to the UK all the s**t is coming out. The one question I want answered is how did you and Black Baroness miss the fact that Free Area was a spy? A spy you supported, even a nobody like me knew he was foreign born and most likely a spy.

Or do you need time to investigate yourself?

Luis Nordmann
Luis Nordmann Day 2,041, 10:27

None of us actually knew he was a spy, he worked with AMP for a long time, none of our information was leaked. Heck he was even a congressman and never used his citizenship passes to give it to serbians and helped ATO for more than once. Tell me, would you suspect a guy like this?

We didn't, none of us knew he was a spy. His behavior didn't suggest it. Me, Baroness, John killah... pretty much the whole AMP leadership was fooled.

Drew Blood
Drew Blood Day 2,041, 12:57

Hence the absurdity of the CIA, the FBI, Homeland Security etc...etc...there are many citizens of America who are foreign born who are fine trustworthy citizen, I just feel you are not one of them since you learned at the knees of the "Pfeifferist'; the citizen you have described above is someone who currently resides in the United Kingdom...and gee not one person every suspect he was a spy...or that he tanked for TWO...

I'm just saying....the two of you seemed to have spearhead his upward mobility, then you try to spread the blame out by mentioning an AMP member who is trusted by one and all; the AMP hasn't been the same since Haliman left....
