Good morning eIreland and what a good morning it is. The sun is shining in Dublin and it looks set to stay that way. It's been a while since I've published anything or even commented on current events but I felt I had enough thoughts about current affairs to sum up in an article.
We have a very interesting election this month and for me the two main players in this election are Castanadea and Brian Boru. I have yet to vote as I am still torn in two by these two candidates. I like Castanadea because I think he is a very honest player with good intentions for eIreland. He is supported by IV which is a party I have always felt my own thoughts were aligned with on many issues. However it is his 'push the button' campaign he promoted against the eUK which is holding me back from pushing the button for him. I did not like this campaign one bit, I did not feel it was in the spirit of the enation I belong to or would want to belong to. I was very disappointed in the whole affair, if I must tell the truth, and even more disappointed when it only succeeded in earning us some ineffective embargoes.
Brian Boru is a very intelligent player in my opinion and his work in Labour and the ICA has shown he has both potential and ability to lead eIreland to great things. Both candidates have expressed their desire to attack NI which I think is a great idea and will undoubtedly bring a lot of fun back to the game for all of us. I still remember our last fight for NI under Edana and it was one of the best times on eRepublik for me. I don't fully understand why BB's goals include conquering more of the eUK. NI has always been a point of contention between the eUK and eIreland and fighting over it for resources (MedOil) and a unified island but taking on the eUK to conquer their territories as well as NI is not what I want to see happen. To put it simply I supprt taking NI and holding it but no more.
These are my two favourite candidates. Either way I think this is going to be an interesting month for eIreland and I am looking forward to it.
Forgive me if I have misinterpreted in anyway the two candidates I will gladly correct and apologise for any mistakes written above.
I personally welcome any nationalities which wish to come to our eCountry whether they hail from Phoenix or Eden, communism or capitalism. I can understand why many citizens might be wary of such a large group of unified citizens coming to our shores because we are sucha small country. I welcome our turkish friends and urge them to be patient with any suspicions that have been sent their way. As long as they work with eIreland and are friendly people all will smooth itself out in time.
Biffo3000 has announced retirement and I am sorry to see him go. I never really spoke to him or got to know him but it was nice to read his comments and see his face around. eIreland has lost a good citizen. What I want to talk ask people is why they quit. I can understand why you would stop taking an active role in the game but two clicking takes no time at all and it also means if you ever have a change of heart you don't have to start all over again and are stonger and wealthier from two clicking for a period of time when you come back.
These are my thoughts, thank you for reading.
