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.
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.
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.
