[WHPR] Logic, Passion, and America's Test

Day 2,035, 19:33 Published in USA USA by James S. Brady Press Room

A little bit of motivation, if you will.
"The theory of competition says, ‘just because they're the strong doesn't mean they can't get their kicked’.
That's right. See, what every long shot, come from behind, underdog will tell ya is this: The other guy may in fact be the favorite, the odds may be stacked against you. Fair enough. But what the odds don't know is, this isn't a math test. This is a completely different kind of test.
One where passion, has a funny way of trumping logic.
So before you step up to the starting line, before the whistle blows, and the clocks start ticking just remember: out here the results don't always add up. No matter what the stats may say and the experts may think and the commentators may have predicted, when the race is on, all bets are off.
Don't be surprised be if someone decides to flip the script and take a pass on yelling 'Uncle'.
And then suddenly as the old saying goes ...
'We’ve got ourselves a game'."

Dateline: Sunday, June 16th (Day 2,035)
Location: James S. Brady Press Room, The White House

Today’s WHPR
1. The Perspective of Victory
2. Move to the USWP/WTP
3. Adopt a Recruitment Link Contest



Yesterday was a bittersweet victory for us America.
The efforts of countless Americans and allies have given us our internal sovereignty back, while our external sovereignty is beset by the forces of our enemies, TWO. With the introduction of Taiwan into the war against the United States, we are now surrounded by seven fronts, and even with fifty original regions, we cannot hold out against them for long. The coming days will be filled with defeats and setbacks, as the majority of our regions fall out of our hands. Yet, as the full attention and might our TWO falls upon us, a silver lining permeates the darkness.

We will be wiped America. Thus is the cycle of the eWorld. Throughout our history, alliances have shifted in power, and in that rotation, we are inevitably caught in the waning. Through our world wars we have encountered situations similar to this, where hope seemed lost, and defeat seemed certain. However, this is not the truth. Hope is not lost, my friends, but rather, placed somewhere else.

The reality is, many of our allies have lived under the constant oppression of our enemies. Albania, France, Croatia, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Italy, Germany, Ireland, and more recently Russia. Countless friends and fellow citizens who have endured months upon months of their original regions being stolen from them, to fill out the bonuses of our enemies. Our victory lies not in the defeat of TWO on our soil, but in the liberation of our allies, who have stood alongside us throughout their occupations, trading it to help their allies, us.

Do not be dismayed by the invasions on our grounds. Do not falter to the childish propaganda blasted by Serbian adolescents. For we shall make them bleed for every region that they take of ours. Every American state that falls into occupation shall be one of our friends freed, an ally able to fight on another day. That the is the role of an ally, to do what is best for our friends, and in turn, have them do so for us in the future. Our allies have sacrificed their lands to protect us in the past, and the time has arrived for us to do so for them.

A nation is not defeated when it’s lands are torn from it. A nation is not a congregation of bonuses, or an empire of meaningless regions. A nation is given power, given strength, given it’s very identity by the community that flourishes within it. In the defeat of the AFA PTO, we have preserved that community, and ensured that power will last in the coming months. Yet more so, we have shown that our ability to act as one can defeat even seemingly insurmountable realities. For ten months, the AFA brought in countless enemies, and became a nuisance towards our political module. Despite the odds, we came together to defeat them.

So I urge you once more America, overcome the odds.
That’s the role of the underdog. To fight on even when the odds seem insurmountable, when the challenge seems too great, and when our defeat seems certain, because if there’s anything this game has shown us, it’s that anything can happen. So let’s make it happen.




On behalf of the Whitehouse, we’d like to extend our thanks to various individuals who dedicated their time and resources to helping the ATO efforts;
DHS Staff: Kody5, Josh Frost, Max Mcfarland 3
ATO Volunteers: Elvencro, Talostastic, Mercurius100, stewy, Chief White Bull, Syz2
Party Supporters: BigCDizzle, Othere, John Killah, Hale26, Kemal Ergenekon, Haselrig
Military Supporters: Dennis McVicker, Dr Luis Sentieiro, potato134, darkmantle, Oblige, Fhaemita Malodorous Cubby, Lemon Vodka, Cyberwitch, Ghost of Tom Joad, Deepchill, Gnilraps, crashthompson, redbirdusa, jadiv, blondeninja, Joseph Dinero, Roper 70, Jasher
Allied Supporters: Batoa, kushrimzz, ipancho, camarada bruno, Capitao Braga, Kloppo, Illya, ZeMaKubeX, bestboy999, Stolch, Maulmau, Freiheitskaempfer

And many more countless Americans and Allies who fought to free our nation from the AFA hordes.

However, comrades, the battle is not yet over. The only way that we can ensure our Congressional and Presidential elections are free of the AFA is to bolster the top five parties into a position where the newly created AFA cannot enter it.

To help with this effort, move to either the United States Workers Party[/ur], or to We The People, depending on which party is more lowly ranked.



In addition to the National Broadcasting System, the Media department would like to introduce our new Adopt a Recruitment Site program. Way back in the olden days of the eUSA, there used to be a program called REACH. It was dedicated to trying to find new ways to bring people to the game.

One of the inspirations for REACH was actually the baby boom we received after World War 3. One of the greatest motivators for bringing people to this game is apparently the threat of complete and total defeat. Thus, the executive would like to try and tap into that fervor, that enthusiasm, to bring new people here. And let’s be honest, the more people we have, the better our community becomes on the whole.

The idea behind the project is that the Whitehouse will provide recruitment links to political parties and military units, and these organizations will attempt to gather votes for these sites using their members and their communication infrastructure.

The recruitment links in question will be top gaming sites, ranking sites, things such as that, where the government will create a page on the site intended to recruit new people. Leaders of various political parties or military units will then be given these government links, and can advertise them as they choose to. They can place them in their IRC rooms, messaging threads, or whatever.

Political parties and military units are especially apt to do this because the sites generally require daily votes, and members of military units and parties are generally more active on the whole.

In return for their participation, these groups will be given the following:

1. Priority listing on Government Papers
ex. Placed first on the WHPR bottom where it lists MU recruitment links.
2. Sections of the WHPR dedicated to them
3. 50% of gold proceeds from the referrals
4. A message from the Media Department to the new citizen, notifying them of whichever organization recruited them there.

If you’re interested in participating, simply fill out this form, and we’ll get back to you once the program is fully operational.

Note: Individuals will be allowed to participate in this program if they choose to, but will not be given any of the benefits listed. Unless you bring like a thousand people here. Then I’ll give you a whole damn WHPR to yourself.
----

Remember America,




Room For Debate
Next week’s question: “The eUnited States is one of the few countries that retains a nationalized military. We’ve seen a number of other countries change to a system of competing militias, wherein national revenue is split amongst them. Is this system better than a National Military? Should the eUnited States consider adapting?”

Hale26 Day 2,035, 19:52

Fighting a war this massive against TWO, via Direct attacks, is not a sound strategy. See, we have 3 major powers attacking; Poland, Hungary and Serbia. They're pretty hard to fight, and all strike in our night time. Devoting resources to fighting an enemy at night when we can just fight them during a RW, alone.....it just doesn't make sense. We're in an alliance, afterall.

As for the smaller powers, if anything they're what will guarantee us congress. The UK and Thailand can't hold our 2 clickers, let alone a military strike.

Also, we /do/ have 50 regions. I'd rather help Chile with their few regions, then hit the Serbs on our own time.

As for the gov...this did take awhile. But hey, I'll take it.

5am Saint
5am Saint Day 2,035, 19:53

It's war, nations get wiped each day and come back. Remember last time eUSA was wiped? It lasted for around 30 minutes until we won back a RW. Do you remember what happened to Serbia after that? Serbia got wiped by USA and allies. We can do it again.

shiloh13
shiloh13 Day 2,035, 20:52

Yes I do remember all of that. But my main beef is there is little to no communication from the government to the citizens. At a time like this,it is vital for that flow of communications.

John Bokinski
John Bokinski Day 2,036, 01:11

Being wiped and recovering its the material that alliances are built upon. But do not forget that the allies that help you recover your land last time will not be participating in this, and that was a US decision.

The link between Serbia and most of the current members of CoT is also quite different from the ones your former allies had with Serbia last time. I believe its almost impossible to keep the US down but if TwO want to make this campaign last they can do it, since they saw little action in the last year and they must have use cash reserves.

In the end, US will have the chance to see how their new friends react.

Civil  Anarchy
Civil Anarchy Day 2,035, 19:57

Where have we been? Forgive me, but we've been a little busy;
1. Coordinating with CoT to make sure our allies CoTD focused on the Thailand Airstrike
2. Creating a new budget to account for the upcoming war
3. Pouring tons of USD into fighting against Thailand, as evidenced by the supply rooms run and supported by the government
4. Coordinating a massive ATO effort to help remove the AFA, which has been routinely using their NE abilities to hurt our war efforts

Not to mention constantly supporting our armed forces, recruiting through Media, and now starting programs to help ensure we come out of this war stronger than when we entered.

How's that for out of touch?

shiloh13
shiloh13 Day 2,035, 20:49

You are still out of touch with the citizens of this eNation. I do not doubt for one moment what goes on behind the curtain, I have been around for long enough to understand that. But at the end of the day there has been very limited communications from the government to the rest of us, you know the citizens. But whatever please by all means keep patting yourselves on the back for what a stellar job you all are doing.

Bucephalus92
Bucephalus92 Day 2,035, 21:05

Batu Karaev
Batu Karaev Day 2,035, 21:19

Mate, people all over the world, including my country, post such accustations, and, frankly, they can be understood. Fact is, they should also understand that with time this game progressed into a mazochistic rollercoaster for CP's, MoFA's and MoD's, consuming up to 16 hours of their time both at times of war and peace while the citizens are always either bored or uninformed. Let alone to say that during a world war against a tough opponent you have plenty of additional work to create confidence not only for your citizens, but for your alliance and friendly leaders abroad.

Such is the game now, for me and for Tenshibo and all of you too I'm sure, we all have to live with it somehow and be up to the challenge.

Valiant Thor, I've never seen them succeed in the long term, and U.S. is too large for them not to succeed IF the effort is put in. What I'm saying is that Croatians have to put their damage where their mouths are. There's too much "we love America", but I'm suspecting it's more of a hatred of Serbs than camaraderie with America that motives Croatians.

Let's do the "We're getting our asses wiped!" dance.

Ya put yer left foot in,
ya put yer left foot out...
etc.

Everyone that is panicking, STOP IT!
It will accomplish nothing to panic.

Everyone that is preaching the end has come, STOP IT!
The end has not come, this is a normal cycle in eRep.

SerbTWOia is merely clearing out their aged and outdated warehouse items. They've looked in their cupboards and found some tins about to expire. They also find themselves in possession of too much gold. Not to mention it's been awhile since they've put the US in it's place.

This will not last forever. They cannot keep it up for long. Soon the numerous RW's will commence. Who knows, maybe I'll finally get that elusive RW award. Just be aware that it is an extremely expensive proposition to keep a country as big as the US wiped. Don't look to defeat, look to all the gold you'll get from BH's, CH's, RW's and TP's. Not to mention all the rank ups.

Not that long ago everyone was bitchin' that the US didn't fight in any "real wars", at least nothing important to the US. ATTENTION! This is a real war that is important to the US. lol

TL:DR
STFU and fight your ass off. Tomorrow this will all be over and you'll be whining because the DO is for some Balkan war.

It's all down to the invisible forces of erepublik, no personal responsibility, no responsibility on the part of our government as a whole. You're just like our American politicians in real life, all we need to hear now is: "I don't know", "I don't have that information", "I cannot recall", "I cannot discuss that matter as it is under investigation". Come on, don't disappoint us.
