This article is my attempt to reach those of you who are either totally against our party and our cause, and those of you who are unsure of where you stand. I am asking you to wake up and realize the truth. Don’t pay any attention to the trolling that is sure to follow in the comments below. I only ask that you be willing to hear me out, and consider what it is I have to say to you. Our party is not a “national security threat”, or an enemy of America. On the contrary, it is the very epitome of what it means to be an American. I have lived my whole life and elife trying to do what I feel to be right. Like any other human being, I am not perfect, but the core of the message I am bringing to you is both sound and true. I honestly believe it, and I hope you will too.
Some of you have known about me for years, others are newer to the game and just go based off of scary campfire stories that are told. Like any legend, the details are seriously distorted, and most of what you hear is either exaggeration or complete fabrication. I have never done anything but respond to things that are done to me and my friends. If real life is not supposed to be brought into this game, then why was it that for the first year I was in eRepublik the only excuses were that I was very assertive with my Christian and conservative views on IRC? How exactly does this endanger the eUSA other than some people not liking me for unrelated issues? They punished hundreds of other players in the process who simply wanted to have their own party and happened to want to be my friend. Ganging up on people with different views is NOT American at all, in fact, it goes against the value of tolerance which has been cherished in our nation since the founding of the Republic. What does this say about our country when people are persecuted and harassed because of who they are and what they believe? It is simply not right.
Now we come to the situation that we find ourselves in modern times, where people are not only persecuted for their beliefs on an unparalleled level which includes even politicizing the military, but people are encouraged to not befriend those who happen to belong to a member of a political party that those in power don’t like, and are blacklisted if they do so. This so-called “Homeland Security” Department is led by an individual who is a former leader that commanded near universal obedience from the INCI group that held the USA hostage for nearly two years. Additionally, he denies the horrendous crimes committed against the Armenian people in Anatolia, something which is accepted on a basically universal level by scholars all over the civilized world. So think about this for a second, apparently this is okay, but my beliefs are not. Does that make any sense to anyone? In fact, he even finds it funny when you mention this. If ANYTHING should offend us, it is someone like this who has views which contradict historical fact beyond the pale of reason.
The main issue they point to now is the immigration one. There was a time where we struggled to get any immigrants in at all, and they STILL PTO’d us even when we consisted overwhelmingly of people born in the eUSA/RL USA. I hope you can see that either way, whether we approve zero immigrants, or the whole world, those who are in power simply do not want to play this game with me or anyone who would call themselves a friend of mine. Those who get to know me can attest to the fact that I am not the villain that I am made out to be by others. Further, is America not a nation of immigrants? So many of these people have either abandoned their foreign MU’s, or they fight for US military and strategic interests, even though they are persecuted by government supported military units. They don’t go through the “accepted” channels because they are run by corrupt people who would deny all but a few people that are vouched for by the same people who don’t like us to begin with.
We have tried to offer compromise and to build bridges, and they simply are not interested in anything but wiping us out. We did not ask for this war, but we are on the right side. Come on folks. Think about what the Founding Fathers would do in a situation like this. If they cared about what happened in eRepublik, they would be appalled at what our country is becoming. The members of the AFA are good people. They are my friends. They are honest and honorable. They don’t deserve this sort of treatment, and they would be more than happy to be your friends too. There is no conspiracy, no plan to steal America’s treasury and send it off to Serbia, or Romania, or Genovia. There is no plan to steal America from “real” Americans. We simply want an end to the hate. You see, in the AFA we don’t see the genetic markers in someones DNA, or the nationality on their passport. We simply see people, and we judge them on their qualities as human beings and as honorable players. There really is nothing else to it. If you don’t believe me, there is probably nothing more I can say to really convince you, but I am comforted by knowing that I have been truthful in this article, and I hope that still counts for something. Wake up America.
