[USA] Would you like a communist military?

Day 807, 02:02 by Max McFarland 2


Citizens,

Recently Josh wrote an article titled Frost/McFarland for February: Helping the Military..... He covered two basic ideas, Strength Equals Victory & Rank Equals Wreckage. He outlined some plans for increasing the strength and rank of the military. He covered them pretty well, so I won't go any further into those plans. Let's talk about work communes.

I have put a lot of gold into supplying the MI with companies and upgrading the forts system. At least 400-500. I have no desire to drag up links and details, but it's significant. I mention this only to point out that I have seen the results. The MI has been able to accomplish much, much more. Every dollar goes farther, because they are able to self-supply much more then they could before. They are much more self-sufficient.

Naturally, this success has more to do with the organizational skills of beerman616, Seuss, GoalieBCSC, and others, since they made everything work. The success should also be rightly attributed to every patriot in MI who works for minimum wage in these companies, producing the tools of war for their themselves and their peers. My only contribution was to empower them to maximize their own potential. I'd like to do the same for the entire military.

So, I'd like to make a simple offer to the entire eUSA Military. I'll pay for whatever work communes you want. This offer is open-ended, regardless of who wins this election. There is no upper limit to the price tag. I enjoy my time here, it's worth the investment, and I want to see the eUSA Military rise to ever greater heights. I strongly believe that work communes are a step along this path.

Let's make the eUSA military the most powerful, most efficient machine we can manage, right now, in V1. Later, when V2 comes, we will adjust fire. Let's worry about the present, since we have no arrival date for the future. We can cross that bridge when we come to it.

To be perfectly clear, I offer to pay for the following:
1. Whatever organizations the military needs.
~ These might be used for item distribution and/or holding companies.
2. Whatever companies the military needs, within these parameters:
~ Manufacturing and Constructions companies will be purchased from the USA companies for sale market; they will only be located within the original 51 regions. New companies will only be built if there are no companies for sale at reasonable prices. Additionally, if the military currently operates any manufacturing or constructions companies overseas, I will buy those from them for market resale, and provide them with equivalent companies located in the original 51 regions.
~ Land companies will be handled similarly for high grain/oil/wood. High iron/diamond companies can be located in any allied nation, though I prefer iron companies in Karnataka. I will provide the eUSA export license for any iron/diamond companies overseas.

3. Whatever company upgrades the military needs, within these parameters:
~ Weapons: Only Q1/3/5. The cost/benefits ratio for Q2/4 sucks.
~ Moving Tickets: Only Q1/3. The Q2 ones are pointless, and Q4/5 have poor cost/benefit ratios.
~ Food: Any Q1/2/3/4/5 requested.
~ Gifts: Only Q1. The cost/benefits ratio for Q2/3/4/5 sucks.
~ Land: Only Q3/4. The cost/benefits ratio for Q1/2/5 sucks.
~ Houses: Any Q1/2/3/4/5 requested.
~ Infrastructure: Stay away from my monopoly.
;)

In summary, I will pay for whatever work communes the military can staff with their workers.

Some of you may be wondering if this is possible. It sounds expensive, doesn't it? Relax. It's fine. To put things in perspective for you, I pulled some info from my real life bank statements. In the past quarter (90 days) I spent $7,925.25 on eRepublik. Mind you, this figure is in real money.

Guess what? This is within my quarterly budget for leisure activities. I enjoy my time here, or I wouldn't be here. I spend my money freely on the things in life that I enjoy. So, it's fine.

Don't worry about the price tag for my plan. If the military wants to improve their efficiency with work communes, then I've got them covered, 100%. It's as simple as that. Let's empower them.

V/r,
Max

As a proud fighting member of the mighty eUSA Mobile Infantry, and diligent worker in one of Max/MI self-supplying companies, I can attest to the pure awesomeness of work communes.

When you fight, you're helping your corps &amp; country. When you work, you're helping your corps &amp; country.

Whatever you may lose in terms of pay, you make up for with extra weapons &amp; MT's. Which, if you're in the military, is what you spend your extra money on anyway.

We are very lucky to have such a generous sponsor who is willing to commit rl $$ to these work commune projects. They could eventuate with eRepub $$ alone given enough time &amp; human resources, but this is a fantastic opportunity to fast-track a self-sufficient military machine.

I implore all eUSA's decision makers to seriously consider Max's offer. For everyone else who wants this to happen, simply vote Frost/McFarland in the next election.

I can personally vouch for this type of system working as I implemented one very similar to it for the eUS Airborne some time ago and it works like a charm.

I can agree with spending money on things that are fun in life, but eight-thousand dollars on eRepublik? And that's probably not even getting close to his total.. McFarland must be quite wealthy, or else spending money on this game would be the last thing on his mind. &gt;.&gt;

If Max gets elected as VP these private sector projects will become government-backed.

Government-backed communism? Ol' Joe McCarthy will be spinning in his grave. Don't vote for unAmerican packages, vote Zoli for a term of apple pie, happy endings and shooting kids on your lawn.

God bless America!

The entire Crimson Order operates within a work commune, we are self supplied and growing fast. The system works, and he's offering to bankroll the whole thing? Accept!

Max McFarland, if the public is foolish enough to reject you, move to Canada

Dammit McFarland, I thought I spent a lot of money on this game. Wow bro, that's outstanding! The Admins must LOVE you!

Perhaps you'd like to take a little holiday to eCanada sometime? I could set you up in a nice place in Alberta or Ontario? Perhaps you'd like the old cities in Montreal? You're more than welcome to come up here for a month. The exchange rate is good right now ))

And yes, the Crimson Order in Canada is a testament to the effectiveness of commune-style military organization.

Max,

Thank you for stepping forward in this incredibly positive fashion. As the military expands we need to develop funding sources beyond the budget we receive from the government.

This model is tested and true; most branches already have substantial &quot;self-sufficiency&quot; efforts underway. To the people that disagree with this method, how much do you want your taxes to be increased?
