So I figured I should throw some content at my newspaper. I usually use and abuse it for political purposes. You know, say if I am running for PP or Congress or find myself in an unfortunate political pissing match. None of that stuff is going on right now. Nope, I am as apolitical as I have ever been. That doesn’t mean I won’t soon get the itch. I am a political beast. I can’t help myself, it’s in my bones. I just find myself in a political stasis. Hell I think most of eCanada’s political figures are in the same boat. We’re wiped, we’ve got a President that is generally well regarded and it there is a very good chance that we won’t have a Congress, yet again, this month.
So what’s a fella to do?
Ralph Kline has already written the great eCanadian Unity article: http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/the-argument-against-unity--2225520/1/20 (a fine read I might add).
Uncle Buck’s last 3 or 4 articles have been great entertainment: http://www.erepublik.com/en/newspaper/i-write-with-crayons--288673/1
And Shoi12 is your man if you need a foreign affairs fix: http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/the-end-of-something-but-what-russia-vs-poland-2225287/1/20
What is it that I can add then, when I am not politicking? Seriously, I’ve got nothing. I have views aplenty, on pretty much any and everything that goes on in eCanada, but does the reading public even care what Quimbie Muffins thinks about any and everything? My ego would like to think yes, but lately I am unsure.
Maybe I need a project? A cause? An enemy? Something... Generally when I get eRep fatigue I do something rash. I move to eSouth Africa, then eRussia, then help form a new party, leave that party, drastically switch my political allegiances, or pick on Clan Wolf. But I have done all that and truly, most of that stuff really didn’t help my personal brand.
What is all this then? A cry for help? The mad ranting of a bored and unengaged eCanadian? Words meant only to fill a void that has been my newspaper? All the above?
Anyway, there it is. That’s where my head is at. I am doing my best to behave. It would be very easy for me to launch into some sorta lulz campaign just to cure the monotony, but frankly I am tired of it all. Gimme something to do eCanada, Quimbie is losing the fire in his belly.
Thanks for reading,
