Ronald Gipper Reagan
Join the American Eagle Division
My Fellow Americans,
It is with great enthusiasm and hope for the future of our nation, that I announce my candidacy for President of the United States of America. It has been quite some time since my last campaign to occupy the eOval Office, but I believe that now is the moment where we can bring tremendous change for the better to our nation. The desire for eAmericans to reverse the disastrous policies of the last several Administrations, and to make this country something to be proud of once again has never been greater. With your help, I know I can win this election. You can count on this being an active campaign where I will engage the entire American voting population, but I will start with my official Presidential platform, outlining what a Reagan Administration would look like.
For those of you interested in a position with my Administration, simply contact me privately to discuss what sort of position you would like, and why you would be an ideal choice for it. My Administration will not consist of the same recycled elites from every other month. I will pick the smartest, and most capable individuals around for these posts. There will be some familiar faces, and some new ones, but we will need a dramatic overhaul of who runs our government if we are going to turn this country around. The cabinet will be revealed at some point during the campaign for your review and consideration.
1. Party President of the largest American party, and responsible for overseeing the most significant non-governmental organization in the eUSA.
2. Former Congressman with experience in legislative policy.
3. Has been a citizen of ten nations on five different continents, held leadership positions in those countries, and has one of the largest networks of international diplomatic contacts.
4. Commanding Officer and co-founder of American Eagle Division, one of the top ten military units in the eUSA.
5. Prolific author and publisher of The Reagan Revolution.
6. Has held numerous Ambassadorial and other diplomatic posts, and responsible for creating the original Department of Homeland Security in the GoalieBCSC Administration(before it turned into Orwell on steroids)
The current economic policies are absolutely atrocious. I will push for an income tax reduction from the current 25% level to the prior 15% level. Further, VAT and Import taxes will be set at 1%. This will alleviate a lot of the problems that many players, particularly newer ones have in being able to survive without massive assistance from others. We will make up for this in two main ways.
1. I will establish a Patriot Defense Fund, where players may voluntarily donate money to be used towards American military operations. This will allow those who can afford to do so to give more to the country, while not asking more of those who cannot.
2. I will restore 100/100 resource bonuses, which will bring tremendous economic benefits back to our country and allow money to literally be flowing in.
The USA finds itself in a very precarious position. Poor decision making, childish behavior, and massive egos have caused many of our longtime allies to distrust us and lose respect for us. I favor taking numerous steps to boost our credibility on the international stage. I will immediately reach out to my many friends around the world and discuss the formation of a massive new alliance consisting of countries from all over the world. I know people want specifics on this. I am not going to name every conceivable country, but I definitely would like to see us with closer connections to nations like Romania and Chile, to name just a few. This will put our country in a position where it has the ability to protect itself from potential invasion as well as potentially expand territory. There are countries in all major alliances that the USA can count on, and they will all be included. It is time we take our rightful place as a major power broker once again.
In the short-term, I have received interest from numerous top level Canadian and Mexican government officials to swap regions. This will allow us to permanently secure 100/100 bonuses. It is crucial that we maintain good relations with our neighbors. While it may have been lulzy to engage in wars with both countries in the past, in order to build an American superpower, this is the best course of action for the future.
The American military requires a complete overhaul. I will immediately end the government policy of political segregation that has wrongfully denied our nation valuable soldiers for petty and unjust reasons. Units with Commanders who refuse to follow orders will be asked to resign. If they refuse to resign their post, those units will be stripped of funding and their soldiers offered an opportunity to transfer to another unit with a new Commander in place. Due to threats made by some individuals in positions of power, these actions are needed in order to preserve the core of our fighting force. Other rising units will also be incorporated into the American military and put to their full use on the battlefield. I will also seek to sign reliable mercenary units to exclusive contracts defending the USA. I am in contact with numerous well respected and powerful units who will be able to provide a tremendous boost to our military efforts. In terms of where we will look to use the military on the world stage, I would tie this with my foreign policy. Our combined friends will be far stronger than our foes. This will allow us to identify a target we are interested in attacking, and engaging in essentially a one front war. Minimize our enemies. Maximize our potential expansion as a nation.
The Department of Homeland Security will be retooled to target the true threats to our country, Pfeifferist loyalists who will go to ANY and ALL measures to cling to power and continue to run our nation through the ground. For those Americans who wish to work for a better nation, a Reagan Presidency would welcome them. For the extremists and the hardliners, there is no compromise in their mind, and there is only one way they can be dealt with.
I will also add a new Cabinet position, the Secretary of Immigration. Rather than being bogged down with Congressional bureaucracy, this post will be responsible with overseeing the entrance of new citizens into the USA. There will be no ethnic prejudices used, unlike the current system. Unless there is proof beyond a reasonable doubt that the person being admitted seeks to destroy or otherwise harm our country, they should be free to contribute to our economy, participate in our political process, and fight to defend our nation.
On Wednesday, January 5th, start the new year off brightly.
Vote Ronald Gipper Reagan for President.
