Tiacha Talks Fed History

Day 1,794, 20:27 by Kara Beth


Earlier this evening, Tiacha related her experiences and recollections of her earliest times with the Feds in #fedpartychat. Here, is an edited version w/o all the extraneous comments and bot speak.


[20:00] tiacha today i will be going over the early history of the feds, from our inception til the first reign of fingerguns
[20:01] tiacha the party was formed after the september 2008 congressional election right after v1 began
[20:02] tiacha rise, and his faction withing the erep for change party (RFC) had a falling out with the big time conservative leader of the time, Desertfalcon
[20:02] tiacha the rfc later became the conservative party which later was attempted pto by ajay bruno in the middle of 2009
[20:02] tiacha but thats another story
[20:02] tiacha that was his first pto attempt
[20:03] tiacha but anyway, there was a disagreement between desertfalcon and rise not only on the party platform but over who would run in what state
[20:03] tiacha this disagreement cause the faction lead by rise to split from the RFC and form the Federalist Party
[20:04] tiacha The group was orginally Rise, Alby (1gold=1usd), Logomaster, Kole, and Voltaire
[20:04] eliwood_sain THE GREAT PROFIT!!!
[20:04] tiacha I joined the group a few days after, when i got fed up with uswp politics
[20:05] DuncanC Wait, 1gold=1usd was real?!?
[20:05] eliwood_sain not really
[20:05] eliwood_sain it was just his big theory and the goal for the US
[20:05] Bristel_Akina It was a long-running joke for our finance plans in the eUS
[20:05] tiacha few references to the situation at the time here
[20:05] tiacha http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/why-i-don-t-join-a-political-party-684247/1/20
[20:05] tiacha http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/my-party-search-has-ended-with-the-federalist-party-694120/1/20
[20:06] tiacha But anyway, we were a small group, maybe 10 of us at the time
[20:06] tiacha we started a little forum
[20:06] tiacha which i think still exists if you google it
[20:06] tiacha "federalist party" and "erepublik"
[20:07] tiacha we didn't really organize until the november election though
[20:07] tiacha me and logomaster and billy flemming were the first three running
[20:07] tiacha they didn't campaign much, but I did.
[20:08] tiacha I ran in ohio that month, but I pretty much had to scramble to run there
[20:08] tiacha we didnt know then that 6th parties couldnt run candidates
[20:08] tiacha so i had to beg UIP (United Independent Party) leaders to run our people
[20:08] fingerguns so newb
[20:09] tiacha luckily, billy and logo were friends with justious so we got to run
[20:09] eliwood_sain is that where the beginnings of the SexyLulz campaign came from?
[20:09] tiacha anyway, i was running against gobucks, a big uswp guy, and a mayor of ohio from beta
[20:10] fingerguns herp derp we can't run candidates as a 6th party, i love it
[20:10] eliwood_sain oh GoBucks. I remember him. He was nice...
[20:10] tiacha he was well known, and had the uswp bigwig at the time
[20:10] tiacha it was really an uphill battle because there was actually still state politics back then
[20:10] tiacha left over from mayors in beta
[20:11] tiacha i was running against my rl friend, royaman, another beta columbus mayor too
[20:11] Paul_Proteus feels like a noob now
[20:11] tiacha basically, it was a tight race all day, but my election was one of the first cases of multi use in v1
[20:12] tiacha gobucks didnt use multies, but one of his supporters did
[20:12] tiacha it added a lot of drama to the election, but it was only the start of the drama for the day
[20:12] tiacha the election ended in a tie
[20:13] tiacha i had one more exp than gobucks so i should have won
[20:13] tiacha but due to an admin bug (so many then), gobucks did
[20:13] tiacha well the feds went out in force then
[20:13] tiacha bitching
[20:13] tiacha me, billy, logo, alby
[20:13] tiacha finally the admins overturned it
[20:13] eliwood_sain Beginnings of butthole hater trolls?
[20:14] tiacha but the trolling between us and the uswp started the hatred of the uswp by all other parties at the time
[20:14] tiacha which would influence national politics for the next few months
[20:14] tiacha but i was the first elected fed congressperson in history, nov 2008
[20:14] Kara tiacha: do you remember how many votes the tie was at?
[20:15] tiacha it was a great success for us at the time. 9-9 i believe kara
[20:15] tiacha we mobilized as a party, and really was the beginning of the mobile voting process for parties
[20:15] tiacha we became so good at it in the coming months
[20:16] tiacha and it put our party on the map
[20:16] tiacha i dont think we would have surprised if we didnt have that small victory that month
[20:16] tiacha i was ridiculed for a lot of my beliefs in congress that month, mostly my vote against our involvement in the war in france
[20:16] tiacha i thought it would drain our resources
[20:17] tiacha but back then, there were NO wars in the eus
[20:17] tiacha no mpps to really get us fighting anywhere
[20:17] tiacha it was a politics game, or you were a marine to fight in balkins wars
[20:17] tiacha but it changed that month with the war
[20:18] tiacha people didnt agree with my vote, but they respected me, and our party
[20:18] tiacha i kinda got sick of it after a month and took a break from congress
[20:18] tiacha but then dec-jan 09 we had another challenge as a party
[20:19] tiacha logomaster, our pp at the time, was approached by kyle321n about merging with the nationalist party
[20:19] tiacha he came to us because he thought that together we'd have a better chance of getting into the top 5
[20:20] tiacha because they had more people at the time, we would have used their party name and structure
[20:20] tiacha everyone in the party voted to do it except me
[20:20] tiacha i fought hard, real hard, and finally convinced people that we could do it on our own
[20:20] tiacha and i won the argument
[20:21] tiacha we would have been the nationalist party now if i didnt win that arguement
[20:21] tiacha because of the backlash and because he was burned out, logo resigned as PP
[20:21] tiacha I took over PP for the rest of the month
[20:22] tiacha I made sure we were in line and ready to run our candidates again in feb, but didnt hold onto the pp long because i started my first stint as a marines
[20:22] tiacha we had to be mobile then, so i turned over leadership to Alby
[20:23] tiacha we came back with awesomeness in Feb 09 with 4 candidates elected, myself, gilroy, bill brasky and gaius julius
[20:23] tiacha it was a glorious day and a trust show of our organization
[20:24] eliwood_sain I miss all of those people. I don't remember Gilroy so much, but I do the others
[20:24] tiacha around then, we implemented the political director position under gilroy
[20:24] tiacha gilroy was a srs business guy
[20:24] tiacha he was an organizer and didn't stand down to the uswp
[20:24] tiacha our rivals at the time
[20:25] tiacha he, alby, and myself really held the party together until gaius took over as PP
[20:26] tiacha we really started kicking butt around then, cause in feb 09 i was nominated for speaker
[20:26] tiacha we had an alliance with the cvp, uip, etc at the time
[20:27] tiacha but kyle, who ran against me, had the uswp in his pocket
[20:27] tiacha it was funny because he grew to hate them
[20:27] tiacha but he used them to his advantage at the time
[20:27] tiacha it was a decent race, but he won
[20:28] tiacha but he had to give the feds big political favors in order for him to get stuff through with our block
[20:28] tiacha we ended up winning a lot of congressional chairs, brasky, gaius and i, when he created committees in order to compensate
[20:29] tiacha but after the impeachment of uncle sam, when scrabman took power, partisanship really changed us as a nation
[20:29] tiacha the other parties realized that unless they united, no one could defeat the uswp
[20:29] fingerguns is still not alive at this point
[20:29] Stingerscrabman \o/
[20:29] eliwood_sain I'm alive, but I haven't been around too long
[20:30] tiacha we created a conservative coalition, which really was not that, but an alliance of the parties against the uswp
[20:30] tiacha we created the iccr (independent congressional review ratings) in order to legitimize our alliance
[20:30] tiacha it basically was a huge endorsement list
[20:31] eliwood_sain didn't Rhinelander work with those?
[20:31] tiacha if you were not on the list at that time, you almost all of the time lost
[20:31] tiacha later on he did, eli, but it was really a baby of me, princessmedipi, kyle, and jewitt
[20:31] tiacha we included a uswp rep on the selection committee each month
[20:32] tiacha but they were almost always outnumbered
[20:32] tiacha the partisanship, even though scrabman tried to keep the uswp out of it, was only intensified with ananis' 50 state plan on april 09
[20:33] tiacha that was his glorious plan to run and elect a USWPer in EVERY State
[20:33] tiacha scrabber promised id be safe to run there despite what ananias said
[20:34] tiacha but lowell kennedy thought otherwise
[20:34] tiacha he was just a big uswp prick, but most people liked him
[20:34] tiacha but i was scrabs COS at the time
[20:35] tiacha after i found out lowell was running uswp, i figured i wouldnt have a chance with the uswp machine behind him and zombie voters
[20:35] tiacha so i resigned as cos and from congress cause scrab and ananias lied to me
[20:35] tiacha which lead to a HUGE backlash against the uswp then
[20:36] tiacha claire littleton was becoming a big deal back then
[20:36] tiacha she was orginally uip then lib
[20:37] tiacha she was my friend and as cos i made her our first media director in history
[20:37] Stinger except really scrabman did that
[20:37] tiacha she created the newspaper the department of media uses today all cause i told scrabber to do it
[20:37] Stinger psh
[20:37] Stinger psh
[20:37] Stinger psh
[20:37] tiacha gave her the money
[20:37] Stinger rewriting history in this bitch
[20:38] tiacha whatever
[20:38] eliwood_sain Stinger can do his history night some other time
[20:38] tiacha scrabber wouldnt have made her media secretary if it wasnt for me
[20:38] tiacha and they made the newspaper cause they didnt want her paper getting votes
[20:38] tiacha in case she ever left
[20:38] tiacha anyway
[20:39] tiacha point is we were friends, she was pissed over what lowell did
[20:39] tiacha and ran a sucessful revenge campaign and stomped his face in
[20:39] tiacha I left for the marines after that
[20:39] tiacha also a side note about this time, was the feds were bffs with the UIP
[20:40] tiacha Princessmedypi and i ran an attempt for president/vp in april 09
[20:40] eliwood_sain I remember that...
[20:40] tiacha it was the sexy/lulz campaign
[20:40] tiacha in which Mel ran with pics of just her in a corset
[20:40] tiacha it was quite, well, just mel
[20:41] tiacha but we lost due to a crowded field
[20:41] tiacha jj/scrab/mel/kyle ran that month
[20:42] tiacha but that was pretty much the major history up until fg became pp
[20:42] tiacha stinger ran against fg that month
[20:42] tiacha got sad he lost to fg
[20:42] Stinger I'll edit this to actually be accurate, historically
[20:42] tiacha slaps stinger

As a boss-level Fed, I was surprised there was soooo much in here I had never heard before.

It's awesome to know your history, but players shouldn't shy away from the opportunity to make something new. I started at the end of March '09 and was PP by June.

I love the sandbox.

Thanks for sharing all of this, Tiacha!!! And thanks for posting it KB!

Great...but this just touches the tip of the iceberg there is so much that happened afterwards that still needs to be talked about.

I enjoyed the memories.
