Unity elections do to my lady business what salt does to a slug.
It's a terrible system. Nevertheless, I would like to be America's next top candidate to lay a wicked beat down on the terrorist scum exploring the depths and wonders of each other's b-holes in the AFA. Oh, and I don't just mean beating them in an election. That would bring me only moderate satisfaction. I'm talking about seriously going on the offensive and dismantling this threat once and for all. Total satisfaction.
I won't be so short-sighted as to suggest it can all happen in 4 weeks, however, I think if we lay down some serious groundwork and start 2013 off right, it's really just a matter of time until we get this nation back on track, dominate the terrorist threat and potentially make the eUS stronger than it's ever been. I don't think it is simply a matter of having a point person for an ATO on election day or sending out a couple extra messages. We've done that with moderate success in the past, but we struggle to maintain it. We need something more long-term. We need some serious change here.
I believe the key to stopping this PTO attempt on our nation isn't in organizing special initiatives from month to month, but rather pulling ourselves out of this role playing rut we've been stuck in for far too long and reaching the full powerhouse potential of the eUS. We need to change our thinking and our behavior a bit. These initiatives shouldn't be so 'special.' They need to just be how we operate now. The country doesn't look the same in peacetime as it does in wartime, and make no mistake about it, friends- We're at war. We need to be more organized and coordinated than ever before...like all the time. Routinely. And not just at the top, but yes also there.
*If I am elected, I will keep party leaders and MU commanders in the loop and share in the responsibility of informing the public, organizing members and maintaining a united front. I will trust community leaders to lead their communities and provide them with whatever assets and information they need to do so effectively.
*If I am elected, I will help boost activity and retention through a series of domestic initiatives. We need to focus on not only the new players, but also the two clickers and even those older players who are growing bored after years of repetition. General activity makes election activity easier.
*If I am elected, I will restructure parts of the government for maximum communication and efficiency. We need teams of people coordinating closely to help us navigate battles and potential alliances, as well as our domestic initiatives. Additionally, if a job is really just a title, then it's going to stop existing. There is work to be done. No messing around.
*If I am elected, I will overhaul the Department of Homeland Security to turn it into a PTO fighting machine. Being defensive isn't good enough, we must also be offensive. A comprehensive assault on these infiltrators is what it's going to take to get us off the ropes so we can eventually start regaining bonuses and getting the eUS back in the shape it needs to be. There are many angles by which we can approach this, and we need to be doing all of the angles.
Personally, I completely reject the mentality that anyone who isn't in my party or my clique is working against America or presents an obstacle to be overcome or worked around. The fact that we have so many parties and MUs doesn't need to be a detriment. Small government can make a large nation run like clockwork if the structures are in place. And that's what I think parties are- the eRep equivalent to States. I know I just gave a bunch of elitists heart attacks, but I am from the FEDERALIST Party. We didn't pick the name for no reason. lol
If these smaller communities are running well, they have good leadership and infrastructure and they genuinely want to help, then not only is this NOT a bad thing, but it can become one of our most powerful weapons. What we need parties and MUs to do is MOBILIZE and they can do that very effectively if they already have active and organized communities, as many do. They can reach their members faster and coordinate more efficiently than any government program. We shouldn't disregard these groups or work around them, we should be working with them and really utilize the existing infrastructures to coordinate.
The differences between small communities is good for our social health. As long as the infrastructure is there and we're all on the same page with stopping bad guys, then why can't we work together while maintaining our independence?
This is of course what I would like the nation to focus on in January and vote me in to help lead the way, but really there's no reason to wait. We just lost an important 6th party to the PTOers (by 6 stinkin votes) and Congressional Elections are on Christmas Day. We face a serious threat right now and we have to fight it with one hand tied behind our backs. Currently all of the Top Party leaders, MU leaders and other community leaders are working together to strategize and mobilize to keep our Congress secure and out of the hands of these terrorist jags.
If you are able to mobilize BEFORE or ON the 25th, please contact your party leader or MU commander ASAP so we can coordinate. If you're not already plugged into a party or military community, now is the time! Get involved and help us crush these monkey humping criminals!
DEATH TO INFIDELS!
And please please please please please don't forget to sign in on the 25th and cast your vote for Congress! Do it for Santa! Do it for Jesus! Do it for AMERICA! And as you hit that button, don't forget to say:
