The events of yesterday show how quickly things can change in this country.
It was only a little over a month ago that our friends at the Friendship and Honor Party (FsH) were aligned with American Freedom Alliance (AFA), the party that is trying to Politically Take Over (PTO) this country and works against American interests.
The FsH party saw which side was the honorable side, broke off and aligned itself with the legitimate American system. The FsH had congressmen elected a few weeks ago on the USWP and Federalist ballots, quickly becoming a part of the real American society.
Yesterday, the AFA and Ronald Gipper Reagan tried to seek revenge in a PTO attempt on the FsH party. All of the major, legitimate parties in this country sent help the keep the FsH in friendly hands, a move that would've been unthinkable only two election cycles ago. Because of our efforts, the FsH is in friendly hands.
I got a ton of feedback about my article a few days ago, which showed a clear example of how the AFA was hurting this country, and was asked one very interesting question:
What would it take for the AFA to be recognized as a legitimate party and not a PTO threat?
There are two ways I can see, one obvious and one that will take more work.
The obvious way is what I described above: Leave the AFA and either join an established party or make your own party like the FsH did. The FsH had people in Congress in an under a month of leaving the AFA, a fact that might be more amazing when you realize the leadership of the FsH aren't even real-life Americans. They're mostly Romanian, based on their avatars and articles. FsH was accepted into American society because they worked within the system, something the AFA has not done.
I know there are some good people in the AFA, I've met some of them. I also know many of you aren't Americans in real life, but that's not the reason you're looked down upon. At least three former Presidents of this country were not real-life Americans and dozens of congressmen and military leaders have been from other countries in real life. In this game, just like in the real USA, we are a country of immigrants. As long as you work within our system, you will be accepted.
The AFA will have to change dramatically to be accepted as legitimate
I do not represent the government, congress or the country when I write this. This is not a binding proposal, just something I've thought a lot about.
That being said, I would be willing to consider the AFA as a legitimate party if the following happens for a minimum of three consecutive election cycles:
1. Congressmen elected by the AFA must only accept citizenship requests approved by the IES (Immigration Enforcement Service). The main reason the AFA has become as large as it has is the constant accepting of citizenship requests of people from enemy countries. This has to stop for any chance at being considered legitimate, and is non-negotiable.
2. The AFA must stop trying to PTO other parties on the 15th each month. Last month, the AFA had a plant in every major party and heavily targeted the USWP. Yesterday, the AFA tried to PTO the FsH, as I described above. This must stop and is non-negotiable.
3. The AFA must stop moving a smaller party under its control into the top 5 right before Congressional elections to knock one of the major parties out. For the newbs who don't know how Congress elections work, only the Top 5 parties by membership are allowed to run candidates for Congress. In each of the last few months I've been here, the AFA has tried to move its members to a PTO-ed party to replace one of our major parties on the ballot. This must end and is also non-negotiable if the AFA were to become a legitimate party.
4. Party leadership must be replaced. I've never had a problem with every single member of the AFA, the leadership of the party has always been my target. Based on their actions over the last few months, Americans will never accept a party led by Ronald Gipper Reagan, Viarizi, Hainbal LA, Sidarta or k1tho. All of those members have long histories of working against this country's best interests. For the AFA to be considered a legitimate American party, new leadership must take over. This is also non-negotiable.
If those four conditions are met for multiple election cycles, I would accept the AFA into our society as a legitimate party. And I know Americans would unite to help you, like we did for the Friendship and Honor (FsH) party yesterday.
Becoming a legitimate party is possible, but work must be done.
