I won Congress on my own merits: I am proof that Shame713 is wrong

Dia 1,929, 14:00 Publicado em USA EUA por Clint Carmel

Greetings, loyal readers. As we approach a circulation of 500, I do want to thank you all for being dedicated subscribers. I think I put out an ENN-nominated paper-- oh wait, I actually do that-- and that my articles are worth reading. A special thanks to Mercurious100 for linking to me, by the way. And to Mr. Coin in the same party, for his kind words. And thanks to Bobby of the Metal Party for helping me get my first HW medal (and referral medal; he writes well about networking.)



This very morning at 3:00 AM, I got my first Hard Worker (HW) medal. That means, for those who are counting, that I have been in the game only 30 days.

Speaking of medals and achievements, I have to thank the entire membership of WTP for giving me my 1st 'Congressman' award. And the story behind that is why I know Shane713 is wrong in his article today.

As I said, I have only been in the game 30 days.

And that means that most of the alleged "Unity" leaders have never heard of me, or only have a vague idea of me and where I stand. I was on the eNPR radio with Jefferson yesterday mocking my own WTP Pres, Oblige, and his avatar on the eusaForums, so it's not like I'm beholden to anybody or am not my own man.



I 'won' this election to Congress without even being allowed to vote for myself. So, no brass helped me; no thumbs up from Max or Luis or Israel or Oblige. No WTP articles came out and said "This is the guy, vote for him."
In fact, Max and Colbert and a few others severely trounced my first platform.

But I always persevere. I won strictly on my good looks, charisma, and respect for all living things.

So, no, I do not agree with my rogue colleague. There was no glass ceiling preventing my ascension to Congress. No one has told me what to do, say, or think. No one stopped me from joining the Wiki team. No one has stopped me from going on various blogs and radio shows.

I am an American.



Now I want to distinguish between anger and action. The anger that my colleague feels is justified. Emotions are always justified: he proposed a ridiculous idea that we should have Divisions based on the first letter of our last name, or something like that. This was a nutty idea for two reasons: 1) he didn't propose it to Plato or the people in charge now, he proposed it in a place that eRepublik programmers wouldn't ever read. 2) he went out of his way to whine whine whine so that even if his idea has merit, the execution of how he explained it came across as terrible.

Anyway, he was mocked and chided, so I understand his anger. But what you do with your anger is the important thing. I'm quite angry at some 'Unity' decisions. But you don't see me getting bent out of shape about them, or whining, or making rogue Proposals that are tantamount to political suicide. For me, keeping an eye on the big picture trumps all of that.



Whether my colleague ends up in the AFA, or whether he was always actually AFA, it doesn't matter to me. He started as a Fed, and the Fed instructions by Gnilraps, Fingerguns and the rest are very clear: build up your strength while you can. His own inability to follow directions is why he is doing so badly at getting BHs. His own inability to use BHanalyzer (or perhaps his ignorance of its existence) and his own physical lack of self control is to blame here. Just as my own success is self made, so is McCoy's ruin also of his own making.

If he is unhappy here, there are 69 other countries, where he is free to have whatever 'fun' he likes.

Please explain the mechanic that put you on the list that PP Oblige submitted for WTP congressmen.

Good rebuttal.

Oh, it was constructive enough. My point was just that I don't agree with everyone, and not everyone agrees with me. We're not all brainwashed Unity zombies.

I was hard on your platform because I thought it lacked some essentials. As for you, personally, I am glad you are in Congress. I like your comments so far. You have excellent potential.

Also... my thumbs up means nothing. I may have a media presence, but I have no real power or ingluence, nor do I want any, the politicks that go with it suck.

Speaking of which... keep rolling forward and improving until you are the eUSA CP. ^ _ ~

I consider media presence a very important part of this game. Propaganda is never to be discounted in politics, nor political opinions nor pundits.

You raise a valid point. I edited that line out, plus a few other asides that were meaningless.

I doubt he will ponny up the McD's either. He has no monies. :D

Honestly Ajay? Why would you make veiled threats against Clint?

Please, please go talk to a professional mental health provider.

(Clint; Ajay is saying that he will make it so that you can only work at McDonalds.)

Do as you wish. I found out today that I was wrong. Whether you are saint or sinner, Shane did this to himself, and I have edited the article accordingly.

PTO threat or not, you deserve the dignity of not being assumed to be behind the decisions of every rogue person in eUSA. I was wrong. If this causes me to suffer consequences in game or out-- it's my doing, and my words to be held against me.

(Everyone deserves respect and dignity, even AJB. I was in fact wrong to mention AJB instead of RGR, and I sent him a personal apology to that effect.)

You forgot to add an unabashed, bigot. Whatever floats your self-absorbed, extremist boat.
