Election Day: Thank You

Day 1,904, 21:43 Published in USA USA by Clint Carmel

I promised a post a day, and I plan on delivering on that promise. Though I admit that not every post will be a 'home run,' I will still take my place 'at bat' every day. If this blog has one theme, it is to just keep plugging away...

Now then, today in fact I want to keep this brief, because today is not about me. Today is Election Day here in the eUS. And so, regardless of how they end up doing, I want to thank Ghinculov, Zoli, Candor and John Killah for running. It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree with every plank and platform they stand for-- the fact is, at least they are trying. Running a country, even a virtual country, is a difficult and time-consuming proposition (whether you end up remembered as a hero or villain by history). It takes time and dedication. And so for their simple act of volunteering to serve, I want to take a moment and thank the slate of candidates.

And for her time in office, especially as she was the President when I first joined, and as it was her Fed powerpoint videos that helped teach me the game, I want to thank Fingerguns. I think I learned more from reading her after-action debriefing than from any other post I read up until then, as it gave me a unique insight into her, politics and eRepublik.

Especially as a recommendation from one new player to the others out there: don't reinvent the wheel. Read up what others have done before you. There are many websites and forums out there with awesome training threads and how-to videos.

So that's it from Cheyenne Mountain today. If you have voted today, then I thank you as well. It's each and everyone one of you that keeps this game community as vibrant as it is.

You're going to go far in this game. And the nation needs more like you, and less of the opposite of you.

Help write the nations positive story line, be a leader and not a follower, treat everyone with respect regardless of how they treat you. You'll help grow this nation. Guys like you are the health of our body politic.

As a new player I generally don't have much respect for them, they have to earn it and within only a few days playing, you've earnt my respect which is hard to get. I do see you going far in the game and I hope you find a group of like-minded people that can help you follow your ambitions and dreams. Good luck out there.

Voted and Subbed; it is good to see the world of eAmerican Politics from a fresh perspective. I too seeing you become a prominent member of our community with time as you gain experience and insight.

If you've any specific questions, especially regarding the economy aspect of eRepublik feel free to contact me directly. It will be the economy that will become a central topic as we head into spring.
