Irishmen and Irishwomen of good will, I ask that you support me once again for the highest office of our Republic, this coming Tuesday.
Our country is in peril, as always.
It is at peril from the continued decline of the world economy. The Monetary Market is at an extreme low, company profits and communes are struggling alike, and many of our allies are also facing financial problems. Through this storm, I have kept Ireland afloat, ready for the next step to progress. The admins will eventually be forced to act by the state of the world economy, and Ireland will be ready and waiting.
Our country is also at peril from within. Two rival factions have brought this country to the edge of civil war, and both have used highly illegal tactics to do it. While I may not be able to stop the war entirely, I have curbed the worst of the problems this term by issuing a clear line from government that such behaviour is unacceptable. Ireland is not a playground, personal vendettas are not to be played out on the political stage.
Lastly, our country is peril from the outside, not because we have enemies, but because we lack strength and the ability to build upon it. I showed the Irish people the two roads before us, that of joining the Circle of Trust and that of remaining independent. Other roads may open before us, but the people made their decision, and I shall follow it.
So why vote for me?
Of the current Presidential candidates, I am by far the most experienced, even if you don't take this term into account. I have served as Minister for Finance and Minister for Foreign Affairs. This means I bring my skills to an already competent diplomatic and financial team. The next term will once again be dominated not by war, but by diplomacy and management of our resources. This means my skillset is exactly what Ireland will need.
Not that I lack military skill either. I have founded or been involved in many military organisations, such as the Irish Volunteer Force, and the Irish Citizen Army. I was the first to propose massive military reforms, a proposal that eventually lead to the foundation of our glorious Irish Army.
A vote for me is also a vote for greater democracy. Via the institution of the Senate, of the Committee for Immigration, of use of referendums which adhere to true democratic principles, and of further discussion with Congress, we have a real opportunity to involve people. This will be expanded by an extension of the Senate to yet more citizens, and the greater involvement of Congress in decision-making, while maintaining strong governmental leadership.
Lastly, a vote for me is a vote to stand up against the bullying and faction fighting that has once again brought this country to its knees.
I will not accept voter intimidation.
I will not accept Political Takeovers.
I will not accept faction fighting.
Tomorrow, I will outline more specific policies, but for now, go raibh maith agat as léamh.
