Just a quick update on the past few days, and a message to like minded Citizens about the future of the country.
A Council Forms
In my last article I wrote that I would be reforming the Military Council, and was accepting applicants. Much to my delight 2 of the people that I was hoping would be interested were. There was also interest outside of my expected candidates and I have chosen one of them to also serve on the Council.
While the Council itself doesn't have specific tasks I'm placing equivalencies on people to do jobs that I know will come up. This will let us better achieve our goals by having each council member focus on a predetermined set of priorities so that nothing gets lost in the mix.
The first member of the new council, and holding the position of Viceroy will be Leo "Light of Palero" Balzac. He will serve as my Consigliere. Had I not run for the position of Dictator he would of taken the job himself, and I feel he would of done a fine job. A strong dictator surrounds himself with people capable of taking over should they fail to do the job. If I'm weak he'll take the reins. If I'm strong, I'll keep them. This is the way of the MDP.
The second member is Mary Chan. The new "Face" of eCanada Mary has been loyal to the MDP for as long as anyone. Her job will play directly to her strengths. Member relations, and when the time comes Congressional Whip. Her fingers will be on the pulse of the party, and if I'm not doing what needs to be done I expect her to do what's necessary.
The last official chair on the Council will be filled by I-Bleed-Blue-93. While I must admit I haven't had previous dealings with him, he seems eager and committed to the party. New blood is needed in a game where attrition is the biggest enemy, and I'll never stand in the way of someone that wants to step up and make a difference. His role on the council will be to do what's asked.
Unofficially there's a number of people who I know I will be able to count on when I have a job that needs doing. People like Homer, but with him running the Boomer's Academy with Zappie and his tasks in the Crimson Order I didn't think it would be fair to him if I added more to his pile.
Finally after a month of being shut out from Congress we will finally be able to hold an election and get the game mechanics working again.
As it stands today 5 days out from the election the MDP's Congressional Ballot is completely up in the air. No final decisions have been made, and I haven't looked at who has placed their names as candidates on the party page. As far as I'm concerned no one is guaranteed a spot, much less a "prime" spot near the top that would guarantee 5 gold, and a voice in Congress.
With that in mind I challenge, not only the members of the MDP, but eCanadians as a whole who would like a high seed on our ballot to write an article telling me what you would do if elected and where you want to see eCanada heading in the next 30 days. I know where I stand, but if you want to get 5 gold on the back of the MDP I want to know where you stand.
The Disheartened Masses
Finally I want to address the citizens of this country who feel like I did. Those who think this country has been circling the drain for far too long and it's time a person or a party steps up and tries to do something about it.
If you've been left dumbstruck at some of the decisions that have been made, or have finished reading an article and have been able to do nothing but shake your head, then I offer you a new choice.
I offer you the Military Dictatorship Party. The new MDP stands for everything that has been left behind as this country "moved forward". The partisanship and "Us Vs. Them" attitude that has hurt this country for far too long is being left behind as the this party looks to the future.
My first act as Dictator was the remove us from one of the biggest wedges in eCanada today, the Coalition. We will no longer ally ourselves with dividers. We're more interested in a true north strong and free than an eCanada that buries itself under it's own bullsh!t.
If you share my views and believe that eCanada can do more, than I would welcome you to the MDP. Together we can make this country better. Every person who turns their eyes forward, is one less person dragging along the baggage of the past.
My next article will be on the 24th and will contain the finalized Candidate list for Congress, and the MDP's official action plan for December's Congress.
