It has been a long time since I last wrote. The game has been pretty boring until recently. Politics was the same old nonsense so there wasn't much to write about. I've been busy medal hunting and two-clicking to keep myself occupied. I tried getting involved in the meta-game at some point in the distant past, but I couldn't get into it. Now Anna Semenovich on the other hand...
...I'd get into that!
Now that I have your attention, there seems to be a power shift in the eUSA. It seems that despite Ajay Bruno, Hannibal, et al being on everybody's black list as a traitor or worse (do I have to remind people that it's just a game? I guess I do!) they have recently lead the American Freedom Alliance (AFA) into plurality in the recent Congressional elections. How'd they do it? Serbs? Multis? I don't care who you are but you have to be impressed with that.
There are many reasons to expect that eventually they may achieve a majority and hence the presidency. All they need is time. If the elite want to keep that from happening, they need to get a handle on the situation pretty darn quick.
The recent election campaigns may be part of the problem. AFA ran a decent campaign that appealed to many people's sense of patriotism and their desire to have a voice in government without necessarily joining the meta-game. I saw this in their shouts and the articles that they've written.
AFA's detractors, on the other hand, ran on a platform of It doesn't matter who you vote for, just don't vote AFA
Yeah, it was that lame. It doesn't get any easier to lose power if you phone it in like that.
That's just the tip of the iceberg. If the elite want to gain any traction and keep what they have, they need to find out why so much of the voting population has been disaffected that they're willing to take chances in your sworn enemy (Still just a game, guys!). It's no secret, even to me, that we have one of the largest two-clicker populations in eRepublic.
So what have they done to keep them? What have they done for them lately?
That's Free Advice.
Anna thanks you for your attention.
