Hello everyone! The AFA would like to take this opportunity to announce an important new initiative in the politics of the eUSA.
What it is and How it will Work
Titled the '6th Party initiative', this new project will operate to select and award a congressional berth to a 6th party which it deems deserving each month. This party will have free reign to represent and pursue its own policy in eUS congress – the AFA will not attempt to restrict how, where or why it votes, nor will the AFA attempt to interfere in policy-making, party presidential elections etc.
You may not like all of the AFA’s policies – however this shouldn’t impact your political resolve to have your voice heard amongst your peers in the eUS legislature.
What we’re trying to accomplish with the Initiative & Why its important to the eUS
This initiative is designed to develop and foster political debate in the eUS. It does this by giving 6th parties, parties which wouldn't normally have an opportunity to work in congress, a chance to pursue their brand of politics within the eUS congress without having to water it down to appease the populist vote.
6th parties are immensely significant to the politics of the eUS, and not just because they represent hundreds of eUS citizens, but because in a lot of instances the ideology they propound and the principles they're founded on haven't been swamped by the egomania and populism that infects a lot of the larger parties and, in a lot of cases, renders them ideology-less husks peopled by political opportunists.
The AFA view the eUS as ruled over by a one-party state (Uswp-Feds-Amp-Wtp) which is divided into factions ruled over by this little ego or that, only very rarely does ideology rear its head in any of this and motivate policy. This oligarchy has ruled the eUS with an iron fist for years, often going to extreme measures to undermine, intimidate and misrepresent anyone who dare challenge them. The AFA is the exception: we’re a party of free-thinking individuals, open to membership from all across the New World, we want a vibrant, cosmopolitan and multicultural eUS not some staid little backwater with a populace cowed and intimidated into submission by a malignant cabal of oligarchs.
As such we wish to actively promote the smaller parties -- we in the AFA want political and ideological debate, and in order to achieve this requires we nurture smaller parties, allowing them a forum in congress, to develop a voice and build a following.
What we’re looking for from a 6th Party
To be eligible for the congressional berth you must be a genuine political party founded on and not simply paying lip-service to a recognizable ideology. Whether this ideology is Marxist, liberal, anarchist, conservative etc is unimportant – as long as it is, with something like a developed policy on taxes, alliances etc. that’s enough.
If you’re a 6th Party president: What this could do for you
As well as getting access to the governance of the eUS through a congressional berth, this also enables a party to develop their profile as a recognizable political force in the eUS, an invaluable opportunity which they can build on and use to induct new members to their cause!
Important Notice: Any person or party who’ve strayed from “the path” as determined by the oligarchs who control the eUS have, without fail, come under sustained attack in the past. As such the AFA commits itself to supporting the 6th party and its memberbase against the vitriolic attacks of the oligarchs.
