We have arrived at the start of the presidential campaign season. So far (as far as I have read), only one candidate has declared and others are currently contemplating. As you may have already read in Candor's article, there is a pressing need for consensus and cooperation at this time. AFA is only going to grow in number from here, and will likely be large enough to win a divided presidential race. That being said, I do understand that there is a diversity of voices, and that there are great leaders from every party. The crux of this problem is how do we decide beforehand who will be America's nominee?
I had read some eRep history, as well as a lot of older articles. A unity election has occurred in America's past, and the result caused some controversy. I understand there could be a massive off-site voting operation to decide who runs and who loses. I also understand that if we can't come to agreement and if even one party decides to run their own candidate, it could mean the effective end of domestic control for our country. This system needs to be perfected, tested, and ensured of success. I have no party affiliation, and no clear preference at this point, so my vote isn't decided. But to be honest, it doesn't really matter to me which great American runs this country. For us its just a new medal and a different set of people at the top. If AFA wins, its a complete restructuring of this country.
I'm still a bit new here, so my observations may be incomplete or off-key, but I do recognize a threat when I see it. We are at a defining moment, which will either keep us strong or start our breakdown. I hope our current administration is currently working on plans to solve this.

Fingergun's "I name you ENEMY!!"
While this article is not completely in line with my previous statements, I did think it was an excellent commentary. I understand that this is a game, and that in games you have much clearer lines of friend and enemy. But this isn't exactly a game where you start off knowing your side. When I first joined, I didn't know we were allied with Poland and against Serbia. I had to read, learn, and understand. And even at that point, it was my choice as a player to decide whether I would stay on the side I entered. I was also solicited by Ronald Gipper Reagan to join his party during my first few days, but I'm more cautious and don't like being told to follow anyone. Especially those who have not proven themselves to me. In conclusion, fingerguns is right that loyalty is important, and that lines do become very clear. However, at the start, those lines are dim, hard to immediately see, and also constantly shifting and changing with the world.
