Hello fellow eAmericans!
I know usually per tradition this kind of announcements are done after the congressional elections, but since this kind of thing is easily known to the public and since the POTUS debate is already scheduled for tonight at 18:00 erepublik, I think it does not hurt to officially announce my intention to run for the Office of President of the eUnited States America!
AND THE CAMPAIGNING STARTS NOW!
In this Article, I wanted to help you get to know me a little better while introducing you to the Top 3 people in my team who will help me the most.
My origins and experience
Although it doesn’t seem so long ago, I joined this game just over 11 months ago during May 2012.
At first, I was confused as hell …but with the help of friends and my own party, I got to grips with the basics and for first 2 months I only did minor party work and I served as Ambassador in State Department, I did my best to learn everything I could since my own party structure, government structure, laws... everything. After that initial period, and after showing my interest the AMP Legal Department as well as for the Department of Education, I was invited to be Secretary of Education. This was my first big work in the government and I was still fairly new. I did my best to improve the department and I rebuilt the whole American university, being the new creator of it. It was also a great opportunity since this would make me actually study game mechanics otherwise I would probably not have notice. It was also around this time I joined Air Force and I became a full member of it after graduating from the old Boot Camp (now known as Flight Training).
During my time as SoE and serving as Ambassador, I attempted, despite the fact it was not my job, to start the negotiations between ePortugal and eSpain, countries at the time at war and whose peace was in the best interests of eUSA. The negotiations did not succeed but due to my work initiative, Israel Stevens invited me to be his Secretary of State during his 2nd term, it was also during this term I showed up on eNPR for the first time with Custer and Dennis McVicker. We did an amazing work that month and we managed to create CTRL and fix a bit of the foreign affairs issues eUSA was facing at the time. Around the mid-end of Israel Stevens presidency, the Air Force old officers left Air Force due to issues with the government, creitzell was made CO of Air Force, meanwhile me and Emdoublegee were picked as XOs, this was the first time I had any kind of deep military experience which I only knew in theory at the time. Foreign affairs issues apart, President Pfeiffer invited me again to be his Secretary of State where I kept up the good job even though the alliance CTRL was then dissolved during this month.
After this terms, I was then promoted to Chief of Staff under Cerb’s presidency along with Molly Emma, we both did our bests to keep the cabinet in shape and to keep the government organized. This was a new sort of job other than the Foreign Affairs I was used to but I enjoyed it and I learned a lot from Molly. Around the end of the month, SladeCash resigned as IES Director and congress faced the problem of not having anyone to replace Slade, eventually I ran for it and the US Congress elected me for the new Immigration Director, position I kept until February 2013 where I helped to frustrate a lot of the AFA PTO plans. During February I became Secretary of Homeland Security and with it, I handled ATO operations and kept the AFA at bay for another month, I enjoyed to fight this threat and to fight RGR directly but I got burnt out with the whole operations.
After this months, President Vanek was elected and since I was no longer part of the government cabinet, I ran for AMP Party President again after being beaten by Haliman mid january. During 2 terms I did my best to revive the AMP Programs and to bring back a lot of things that were lost along the time. I created a Media department, revamped the old supply system that was no longer used after potato’s PPship, brand new forums, Poker Tourney and a lot of fun. Occasionally there were a couple issues but nothing that didn’t get solved. Eventually my terms ended and George S. Patton Jr got to continue the task to lead AMP. Meanwhile Emdoublegee resigned as Air Force CO and transferred the command to me and for the last 2 months now I have been leading Air Force and also serving as Deputy Secretary of Defense along with our Secretary of Defense Cromstar and my other fellow colleague Deputy SoD Lemon Vodka.
To cut the long story short from here, I am the only AMP Legal Director to ever make it to the big chair of Party President which is a great deed according to John Killah and I did a lot and learned a lot during my time of eExistance… All this work and all this fun made me know a lot of people and made me get involved into this community I love.
And that is where I am today …
I’ve known this man for a while, heard of him when I was just a new player and read a lot of things written by him regarding RGR’s debacles. It was due to this man that I didn’t fall into the AFA (at the time RLC) grasp and got to know who was truly the person behind it. Respected by many and with tremendous experience, I got to know Cromstar for a long while, it is someone I respect and one of the few persons in this game I trust completely. It is in my view, the best person fit for the job of Vice-President and I know he will give sweat, blood and 20 bucks along with me to keep the country safe with his valuable experience.
Chief of Staff
I’ve been CoS before and I admit it’s not an easy job because sometimes and this is something I felt is that you sometimes don’t know if you are overstepping your boss or not. Although I don’t think there will be this sort of problem with my CoS as it is someone I worked with for a long time!
Molly Emma is the kind of person very organized and the person with the necessary charisma to keep everyone on track of their own tasks. When I worked as CoS with her, I learned the CoS is the bridge between the cabinet, the President and the Vice President and I have to admit her work was pretty much star quality and her detailed reports regarding what the cabinet was up to were always a good guideline to the next course of action. This is the kind of person I want in my cabinet and as my CoS.
My vision for our Foreign Policy
This month we got accepted into the Alliance Circle of Trust (CoT) as full members. Although I recognise this decision does not please part of our population, we are in the alliance right now and it does not make any sense to go back. We signed a commitment and I will not take us into another course of action, with this saying: We will work with CoT and we will help the alliance the best we can. As you all know, Serbia reacted quite badly to our acceptance into CoT as full members and that seems to be triggering TWO to take a more aggressive stance towards USA and ultimately CoT. Meanwhile Romania left EDEN and signed an MPP with Serbia and EDEN as we all know is collapsing. It is no secret that Romania will likely Air Strike us and Serbia+Poland will join them to invade us which I now name the enemy operation GangBang America 2013 Edition. In case they do proceed with this operation, we will show our enemies how high can be the price for attempting to take our core lands and I say: If we have to give them our lands, we will give them HELL before it. On the other hand, knowing of this events and considering how EDEN is collapsed, we will look to expand our MPPs with friendly nations now unaligned in coordination with CoT and we will keep our biggest allies such as Brazil, Albania and Russia.
Although it is very likely that we get invaded and World War VI gets started, if it doesn’t, we will look forward for training wars with CoT members in order for us to make our soldiers evolve and to give us some medals as well as some fun.
We will also keep for now the Asian Peace treaty and will respect this document.
I would also like to enhance as a minor goal the restructuration of the State Department which will have focus mainly the Ambassadorial affairs, this restructurations will be worked out between my Secretary of State and my Director of Ambassadorial Affairs.
In sum regarding foreign policy:
- Continue to work with CoT.
- Expand our MPPs to unaligned friendly nations.
- Keep our biggest allies such as Brazil, Albania and Russia.
- Region rent deal with Mexico shall be kept.
- Restructure the State Department regarding the Ambassadorial affairs.
My Secretary of State
I only had the opportunity to work with NewAzazel once when I was eNPR co-host, so never actually anything foreign affairs related, but NewAzazel has been serving as deputy Secretary of State and I heard very good things about him and his work. He put a lot of competence and was responsible for the Asian Peace treaty. Seeing someone competent and dedicated,and having in consideration this job is time consuming, I see NewAzazel as the person fit for the job.
