USWP Party President: SRS BSNS 24/7

Day 1,451, 19:56 Published in USA USA by Henry Pfeiffer Arundel

Ok, so being Party President isn't serious business 24/7. What it is, is a lot of work. I've been doing this job two months now (really more like five...but whatever), and I've loved my time as Party President. That's why I'm running again. Gonna hat trick this thing.

As with my last article, this won't have a lot of flowery prose and images. My next article will be pretty, I promise.

I think that the nature of these two articles are very representative of my gameplay here in eRepublik, and definitely as Party President. I focus on tangible results. Game mechanics. I do what I can to help those who put in some effort to help themselves, and I focus on taking the active membership as far as they can possibly go. I've led us to pluralities in Congress every month except for when we were betrayed by Stanley Ibcus. We've elected three Presidents over four months. Party membership is up.

To this end, I run new players who show solid activity for Congress, and I invest party resources to match their efforts to win elections. Portcolumbus is one of the guys I ran for their first term, and while we all enjoyed his meltdown over his keyboard, when he isn't having technical difficulties he has been one of our most active congress members and has (adorably) fallen into some of those freshmen pitfalls of office. I hope he, and players like him, continue to migrate to USWP and help us continue to pump out quality leadership.

Another example of people I've helped along their path is our immediate past President Alexander_Auctoritas. Months ago he came to the USWP Executive Board asking what he needed to do and learn to one day be a viable candidate for President, and a few of us gave him some advice. I saw that he had a drive that is far too uncommon in eRepublik over the last year or so and decided to help him however I could. While I obviously can't take credit for all of what Alex accomplished, I did everything I could to support him, and try to let my knowledge be of use to him. We've grown to become good friends, and I was very proud of the job he did as President.

All that aside, the one thing the USWP can count on from me is consistency. Since I joined the USWP in January under the Hadrian X Administration, I've worked hard for this party. I never let any of my other jobs stop me from doing whatever I could for the party. I spent a solid eight months in party leadership roles before I ran for President of this party, just to make sure I was as prepared as possible, and knew how best to use what resources were available to me.

As much as I love tooting my own horn (lawl, innuendo), I'm going to stop there and let a few of my friends speak for me a bit:

Pfeiffer understands the congressional election cycle and has made it his bi*ch.
SGTRock
USWP Executive Board Member, PAC Director, Congressman, CO of SEAL Team 6

Pfeiffer knows how to get shit done. If you want something done and more importantly, done correctly the first time, call Pfeiffer. I did and never regretted it.
PigInZen
18th President of the United States, USWP Member, eUSA Forum Admin/Owner

Pfeiffer has worked tirelessly to recharge the batteries of a previously-tired party and reminded us that the USWP is still the most successful party in the history of the eUSA.
Cerb
32nd President of the United States, Former Speaker of the House, Former USWP Chief of Staff, Executive Board Member

Thanks for reading all of this, thanks to my friends for the kind words, and thanks to the USWP for all they've done for me and for this country.

I support this endeavor. USWP always and forever!

Love him or hate him, but Pfeiffer, just like Denzel Washington in Training Day, understands that eUS politics is chess, it ain't checkers.

Pfeiffer works well as USWP PP because he understands the USWP is built on political gamesmanship and of course, winning.

Everything said above, plus it cannot be stressed enough; Pfeiffer can be a truly evil little sheeeit, but he knows how to get players elected to Congressand how to humiliate them into the action once in. Not sure if the 2nd part is great, but the election stuff is his baby. USWP FTW!

Once someone puts in the time needed, I'll gladly step aside Ajay. I'm running again because I've yet to find someone who can do the job the way it needs to be done. I've worked to try and identify them, but new players get more enthralled by the military module these days.

Stephen Goldsmith can't do the job the way it needs to be done? I'm kinda new, but he seems to be very involved, experienced, and already puts in a ton of time. What are your thoughts?

Henry Pfeiffer Arundel
Henry Pfeiffer Arundel Day 1,452, 01:22

My problem with Stephen running this month is that he hasn't done anything in the party for 4-5 months. Even before that he was only briefly a member of the party leadership, and has never been a part of the planning that goes in to Congressional elections. He's dedicated to the country, and has put a lot of time into the Army, but he needs to put comparable time in with the USWP before he tries to be President.

FreedomFightr
FreedomFightr Day 1,452, 01:30

Ok, that makes a lot of sense.

It sounds like you want to do more of the same that we've seen in the last couple months (which seems to have worked well to me.) Is there anything more or different that you plan on doing?

@freedomfightr - honestly, what I need is for people to step up. I've asked repeatedly in messages to the party, in my articles, and on the forum (I've gone so far as to start a B4N style thread where if you make me giggle you get food from my personal stock...and I lie and say everyone does). I can't FORCE people to get more active, which means I need those people in the USWP but active in other areas to take just a few more minutes a day and say 'hey, maybe I should talk in #uswpchat or start a thread on the forum'.

I'll continue to try new ways to incentivize this, but part of being on top all the time means that there is no real drive to do better. USWP members KNOW that I will push us to Congressional victories and they KNOW that it's a matter of personal pride that my recruitment efforts keep us America's largest party. Logic dictates I let the party fail a little and see who steps up as a means to drive activity, but I just can't let myself get to that place where failure is something I'm willing to accept.

Regardless of the results of the election, there is one thing we both agree on. Members need to get more involved. Activity levels are declining. Yes, we are a very successful party, but we have the capabilities to do a lot more.
