An article came out from the President yesterday. In it he touted his many successes. While I admit the activity level and direction of the first 10 days in office have been impressive. The last 10 have been rather mechanical. The cabinet has done a great job. We've kicked out Hungary. In the process we helped liberate Mexico and Russia. Media output from the WHPR, DoI, DoE, and DoD are better than anytime in recent memory. Taxes have been dropped in the first act by our newly reinstated Congress. So that's it case closed right? Just cancel the election? Not so fast.
While it's true government media is up, Presidential media is down. Way down. We will see more campaign articles from the office of the President this month then we will actual articles opening a dialogue with the people of this nation. At least we'll have that. The incumbent attempted to exert behind the scenes pressure to run unopposed. He has made a strong case for reelection why would he feel the need for this? The answer is simple.
On eNPR Tuesday night, the President readily admitted he did not want to have to work to achieve reelection. He even accused me of running against him out of spite. In reality I'm running for President for two reasons. First I believe strongly after a year of Unity elections the eUSA
The missed opportunity on the 24th was an epic failure. As a nation we moved more people than ever before. The USWP and WTP moved enough to endanger their own places in the top 5. When I took office as Party President of the Federalists we had 600 people. As of this moment we're in the 470s. Throughout the day, myself, Wild Owl, and Talostastic monitored the situation and moved accordingly. My VPP Melissa Rose mass messaged the entire Fed party, in addition to the 150 Feds, and 160 SHIELD soldiers I personally messaged for targeted deployment. Josh Frost then Secretary of Homeland Security organized efforts to target and report multis. Who is missing from this picture of effort and teamwork?
The complete and total lack of effort on the part of the Executive dismayed and disheartened many. ATO legend Josh Frost resigned in disgust soon after this atrocious display of apathy. Many have privately grumbled in anger. I'm here to say publicly if we had a President that had given a crap the AFA would be in 6th place today without the 7 members of Congress they will no doubt use to import Serbian terrorists. Oblige made an 11th hour attempt to swoop in and be the self declared "savior" unfortunately for the Nation the Mighty Casey struck out. Sometimes there are dire consequences when you believe in your own hype. Unfortunately we all have to suffer those consequences together.
While we have recovered the western portion of our nation, it has come at an obscene cost in cc. We've all seen the very generous cc per million damage offers. To be fair more than half of this has come from private donors. For a nation that was running a deficit on operating costs alone before the occupation this should be troubling. We have reserves deep reserves. However they have been cut into significantly. This is a trend that will only continue and accelerate if our "savior" achieves reelection. We can outspend and push our enemies out I have no doubt about this. The question needs to be asked: what keeps TWO from coming right back? They're not going to stay out just because we ask them to nicely.
Much as it offends our American sensibilities, we're the little guy in this fight. Our Alliance is nearly doubled in damage. Serbia individually out damages the eUSA by nearly double as well. We can draw on our cash and push our behemoth enemies out, but sooner or later the funds will dry up. Our enemies will happily bleed us dry until we're broke, and then we're at their mercy. There is no quick, easy solution to our situation. A long term patient course must be thoughtfully plotted out. As it stands current policy appears to be throw money at the problem. That and attempt to ingratiate ourselves to a bemused Spoland. There doesn't appear to be a plan B.
I've laid out the cracks in the incumbent. Now for the serious business of laying out what I would do. First I would go all in on COT. Many months of foreign policy failure have led to the mess we're currently in. Seeing former EDEN nations like Poland fighting against us so determinedly is a huge example of what we're currently reaping. Some have said we need to leave CoT. While it's true our alliance is new to the big stage, and is experiencing growing pains, the fact is short of TWO there is no direct upgrade. We must stay the course and improve the alliance we're in. CoT has shown remarkable perseverance and coordination this month.
Presidential media would not be few and far between. The people of the eUSA and I would have a consistent dialogue. One thing great Presidents of the past have done is keep everyone feeling apprised, engaged, and involved. I will publish at least twice a week.
I will lead on ATO efforts. No half measures, or ignoring the situation. No posturing 11th hour heroics. Effort consistent solid effort.
I will spread the credit on successful endeavors. So much of the daily goings on of the nation is handled in a daily thankless grind by the Cabinet and the Departments under them. From the mass messagers and QMs of the Interior to the Ambassadors, and the officers of the USAF. All of these dedicated individuals put in hours every day. I will also step up and own any failures on my part unequivocally and without hesitation. Let me be straight I will not take credit for the efforts of others, nor will I seek to lessen or avoid blame.
I will be coming out with an article that is exclusively platform in the next few days. In my experience someone who begins to flag in their effort and energy during their first term, have no business seeking a second term. I am putting the incumbent on notice. You are the heavy favorite, but you will work to earn reelection. That's what democracy is all about.
