No More Unity

Day 2,022, 12:18 by Gnilraps

Get Behind the Mule
Day 2022 of the New World
3 June, 2013

Unity, ATO, and War

Yes, America, it is time to get behind the mule and plow.

Not that it's the most compelling of jobs, plowing, but some days it just needs to get done.



But I gotta be honest, I'm ready for an upgrade:



Please allow me to explain...


The authors of the Unity process really deserve our thanks. That process was drawn up in a flurry way back in November of last year when we needed an immediate solution to a suddenly urgent problem.

And so John Jay (now Leather Neck),
bigcdizzle
Artela
emdoublegee
Kemal Ergenekon
who were all serving as Party Presidents at the time, along with several other national leaders devised a system by which some semblance of "unity" could be reached concerning the election of the Country President.

It was a thankless task, since what they were forced to devise was a system which necessarily subverted the natural ingame mechanics so that The ldiot and his Circus of Dancing Fleas would remain out of the White House.

The system accomplished that goal. So thank you to those who worked so hard on it.


But the Unity process has brought with it a stench.

(Like I said, not the most glamorous job, is it?)

You don't need me to go into details about why the Unity process is flawed.

What I will say is that those who have been responsible for our National leadership in the months since (and yes, I am included among that number) have been terribly lazy (or perhaps deviously negligent) in improving, revising, replacing, or plugging up what has been so horrendously stinky about the whole thing.


And so once more this month America is squarely faced with the sh!tty "choice" of electing one of the Idiot's Fleas or the candidate who was chosen by fewer than 10% of the voting public.


But, as I said, I am ready for a change.


And so I am asking President-elect Tenshibo to agree to prioritizing the dismantling of the Unity Election Process.

In place of the current, really crappy system, I am urging all of America to demand the following from your next PoTUS:

1 - Elect stewy as Party President of the American Freedom Alliance.
This will take The Idiot out of the equation. Continued monthly efforts will need to be maintained to keep The Idiot out of the equation, but we MUST start on June 15th and we must not relent.

2 - Elect Party Presidents in the other Top 5 parties who will agree to running an open election on July 5.
This must take place or else the stagnation of our Political system will make USA not worth fighting against Serbia for!

3 - Require that all Top 5 parties run a candidate on July 5.
This must take place so that there is no slot open for a PTO candidate. If a T5 party does not have a legitimate candidate, it must run a "Blocker" candidate whose Avatar will clearly state "Do Not Vote 4 Me" or some equivalent.

4 - The Country President must remain committed to mobilizing all resources to continue fighting against The Idiot and any other PTO force so that the top 5 Parties remain in safe hands.
Of course, as we have seen, sleeper agents will forever remain a risk factor, and so vigilance must be kept in vetting and electing trustworthy PP's.


America, it is NOT time to go rogue (with apologies to RS) and refuse to elect Tenshibo.

Tenshibo has earned the opportunity to serve as CP through many months of dedicated service. He is well-qualified and has a decent cabinet.

Do not let the fact that he is the Unity candidate distract you from the top priority - defeating The Idiot and his Idiotic Circus of Dancing Fleas. If you are not Voting for Tenshibo on June 5, you are committing a crime worse than Unity. It's called Treason.

But join me, America, in drawing this line in the sand.

Elect stewy to put AFA in safe hands.
Demand an open election for CP on July 5 from all 5 Top Parties.
Demand that Tenshibo commit to NO MORE UNITY ELECTION.

Why aren't you the guy to take over the AFA on the 15th? You have top ballot spot, and are more well-known than stewy.

Gnilraps
Gnilraps Day 2,022, 12:37

my top advisers have indicated that stewy would be a better choice.

Sir Gulden Draak Day 2,022, 12:44

Whatever you say, seems like a dumb decision but ultimately it is your call. I really would like a logical explanation for why he is a better choice besides the obvious he wants to be the one to take down the AFA

with all respect to SGD.. I do believe there are 26? ppl in a pm that can verify that I clearly stated that idc who was chosen, i only was happy to see serious talk of taking the offense.

I really could care less who "takes down the afa", only that something is done about it so the unity chapter can finally be closed.

Unity was pretty gay idea from the start tho. But hay we had no other choice right.

I'm not sure how I feel about getting rid of the Unity Process yet. I don't like it, but I also haven't been convinced that we're at a point where we can get rid of it. None of the arguments I've seen have shown hard data of the Top 4 vs AFA.

But I approve of your encouraging people to still vote Tenshibo on Wednesday. So I voted.

The Circus of Dancing Fleas or maybe just The Circus. I hope everyone uses this nickname. I was happy with roach in place of PTOer but The Circus of Dancing Fleas is just brilliant.

e careful that while you're trying to take over their party, they aren't loading a few hundred bored ereppers into your political parties to take them over as well.. Ask ajay how difficult it is to take over a party while having to worry about your own.

Course, if he took a few hours to plan out a strategy, he could easily take over control of 2, possibly 3 top 5 parties, just using the votes he already has.

Unfortunately, it won't matter either way. You realize this, right? Assume you win control over AFA. they will simply produce another head. Next month you will be right back where you started. Assume they win. They can't rest. they won't hold congress so they will enjoy a 1 month lame duck presidency. The next month the unity idiots will say "told you so" and things will fall right back to where they were 6 months ago.

The solution - stop caring or quit. I strongly support the second option. Its never going to get any better. The numbers don't lie. this is how things in eUS will be month after month after month. Complaining, nagging, fighting, articles about how great unity is and how bad AFA is. Is that really what you want? Of course not. Choose the only noble passage off of the short bus.

i am against UNITY sooooooo loooooooong months..
Unity isnt Democracy.
eUSA politics must PTO the AFA. BUT.. never TRY for that.

+and we LOST bonus, eUSA. Because that want CP and elitism.

Yeah. It's amazing the sudden opposition to Unity in Media. I'm sure you're not the only one who spoke out and got rebuffed.

They did run someone in the AFA last month. Unfortunately the USWP was in desperate need of votes and they chose to save that party instead of taking over the AFA.

Drew Blood
Drew Blood Day 2,024, 05:31

Right...they kept the USWP free, yet lost the AMP; how is that a victory...?
Personally I would rather have saved the AMP and let the 'sock puppets' of the USWP go down in flames.

fingerguns
fingerguns Day 2,024, 05:39

DHS wasn't even watching the AMP. Free Area was democratically elected by his party because they thought he was someone he wasn't.

DHS doesn't really dig into who the parties have chosen to represent them. If AMP say that is their guy and that guy is winning, then there's no reason to focus on it. USWP says 'this is our guy' and some other guy is winning, then they focus there.

The proposal is that we regain control of the entire Top 5.

IF THAT HAPPENS, then there is no reason to have Unity. So yes, I am completely on board with this.
