[eUS VP] Congress, y'all. Stand for something.

Dan 1,798, 12:27 s strani fingerguns


This is the calm before the storm. Congressional elections are right around the corner when we will need to make every effort to ensure the enemy party, The American Freedom Alliance, is hamstrung in their attempt to dominate the election.

I'm asking each of the other 4 parties in the Top 5 to publish a list of who they are running and make their case for why you should vote for them. I'm asking them to really campaign. Campaign for their candidates, campaign for their party... not just against our enemies but FOR our friends and FOR our ideals. Remind everyone why this is all worth fighting for.

I know many feel that this new change to the mechanics of the game is just another blow against real democracy, but I hope we can see the opportunity in all of this. The opportunity I speak of is a change in our mentality regarding how political parties operate.

My personal frustration with parties in the past was that it often seemed affiliation took priority over quality. My party is no exception here. We can point to a number of Congressmen that held their seats for months on end while producing nothing of importance. They were just another lukewarm body holding a spot for no reason and contributing nothing. We've all made mistakes, but we don't have to keep making them. This new system could make that even more prevalent if we don't take advantage of the meta/sandbox options. I know, I know. Meta is a dirty word. Please hear me out.

What we need now are high quality Congressmen. It doesn't matter what party they come from. 6th parties shouldn't be shut out of their opportunity to serve in Congress, so I implore parties, when making your list of candidates, to consider applicants from small parties. If you're in a 6th party, you are loyal to this nation, you are active and have a real desire to keep America moving forward, please approach one of the Top 4 parties and throw your hat into the ring. Also speak with your own party about lending support on your behalf to help you get in- through negotiations, through moving members, through votes. You have leverage here! You have power!

Right now, there is a 50 member difference between iNCi and We The People. We aren't even sure who will be in the Top 5 come election day! The bigger parties are moving people down, but we also need smaller parties moving people up.

I know some of you have a real distaste for certain aspects of this game, but now is the moment when you can make a difference and change things. You can influence what our government does. You can influence how parties operate. You can help control how we move forward together so every voice is heard and every vote is counted. These mechanics changes don't have to be just one more thing that makes us hate this game. It can be the catalyst that leads to a better way of doing things. Together we can cripple our enemies in this election and work toward defeating them completely, but we have to really want to and work together to make it happen!



Sorry for not posting more Zooey pics. The next one will be packed to the rafters, I promise.

There's nothing new in this article..

You want ppl to campaign, but what for? There's no more need to campaign for congress seats, except with the PP (and it's an ass kissing game)

So you want them to campaign for their parties, but in reality there are only 2 parties in eUSA - the AFA and the anti-AFA coalition. So campaigning for individual anti AFA party is hard cuz' they all are the same party without any major difference between them...

Duncan Crowe
Duncan Crowe Dan 1,798, 16:41

@Norbengo.

Your arrogance amuses me. To assume your party is new, a revolutionary idea, and that others are not, is ludicrous and disgusting.

American political parties are the same in that they agree to work together, agree to work towards a better America. If you looked into them, many of the ideals are quite a bit different, but you are right in that most of the ideals are the same. I guess. But, American parties do value certain things differently.

Duncan Crowe
Duncan Crowe Dan 1,798, 16:42

Sure, your party ideas appear different because your party would better fit in Serbia, and you are enjoying the fact that new Americans see it differently. But, your ideas are not new, revolutionary or anything of the sort. The fact is, they are new to America, but not to Serbia, Hungary, or the like.

To summarize: Your ideas are in the wrong place.

Please, accept that America has political parties. Don't just act like we are elitists uniting againist your "noble" cause.

LOL.

Norbengo makes a good point, there's PTO party, then non PTO parties, hardly a difference between the later. Spot on observation.

Duncan Crowe
Duncan Crowe Dan 1,798, 16:52

@Aeriala

But that's not true.

When you join a party, sure the overlying ideals might be the same, as this is a pretty simple game by design. But, when you join or stay in a party, the distinguishing traits become the people in it, the activity, the opinions of each individual member, etc.

There are distinguishing traits in this game, but not the usual ones.

fingerguns
fingerguns Dan 1,798, 16:58

There are things about parties that, in my personal opinion, should be the same. But there can also be room for differences that give each party their own flavor.

On eNPR, Pfeiffer brought up that some nations only have 1 party and it seems easier for them to keep things together. I'm not sure that could work here, considering we can't even talk people into joining only 5, but it's an interesting idea, at least. If little changes don't work, what would you think of a huge one?

You should definitely have one party for all "competent" anti-AFA people. Consider what a "competent" coalition president has achieved in just a couple of weeks, replicate that on the congressional level and you will have AFA rule in no time. I just wonder why there's so much negativity. Every democracy is a compromise, can't we find a way to work together? Just wondering.

She is talking about bonuses. She's right. No one is talking about it though.

olivermellors
olivermellors Dan 1,798, 21:08

^^^^^^^
every one refuses to talk about bonus issues. its just "stupid president/stupid traitors" all the time. NO numbers, NO analysis, NOthing but emotional limbic swings. Saying "we want bonuses/we don't want bonuses" isn't much of a discussion. I give the President credit, however, for the discussion which he DID entertain recently on eNPR - that is a start. It should be pursued.

Understood. No reason that parties should avoid discussing this very important issue during congressionals. Helps us to know what they stand for. Pretty important. Parties designate congressmen. They also nominate presidential candidates. They should have well formed, justifiable, fully debated and considered ideas. AND they should provide the public an opportunity to discuss/influence. The eUSA has thousands of players - many with real life skills, experience - leverage it

Suzuki Ryosuke
Suzuki Ryosuke Dan 1,799, 01:00

Is there any sane person who still believe that low bonuses will help to avoid the so called ''PTO'' (originally from EDEN PTOers, now from Serb PTOers)???

Sure, the MORONS of the present cabinet (elitists) & their supporters (puppets)!

Excellent article FG! It's a shame that it's been dirtied by all of these AFA comments

One big party? eh. I don't know if that would work. A lot of people would feel lost in a super massive group like that. There would have to be a move to get rid of super-egos.

KiltJoy Dan 1,799, 05:53

Stand for Something Good! Defend eUS, defeat the AFA/RGR attacks against eUS. By just being a member of AFA, you allow RGR's puppet Hanibal to elect congress members who get a set amount of immigration grants per month which they use to bring in more anti-eUS players. Join any of the other top 6 parties to drop AFA out of top 5. The game only allows top 5 parties to send members to congress. Don't be a part of the problem, abandon AFA, defend eUS!

If you are angry then good. Do something positive about it. Join a party and stop the threat. Get involved and have your opinion voiced within leadership. Gain support through building trust and submitting your ideas and gather support. Otherwise, stfu and you are just in the way and another threat towards a eSerbian lead government. And do not believe the lies that things will be better. Trust me I was involved in an eCountry that tried that (eNZ).

fingerguns
fingerguns Dan 1,799, 08:35

Oliver, excellent points. I know in the Feds, we don't really have party platforms about specific issues. We are built more to produce a certain kind of player- active, involved, service-minded.

With the changes to mechanics, we should probably change up how we do things politically and form party-wide opinions about these issues. Interesting notion.

I never said it was a crime and I'm not demonizing anyone I'm drawing conclusions based on actions I never said anything bad about anyone I said facts, enemies fight against us and you guys fought against, us. Facts

Draw whatever conclusions you like. I have no fucks to give you.

Okay I'll just change my party and you will have nothing to against me, and i don't troll I just judge the idiots who think that what they are doing helps but guess what it doesn't you have no idea what consequences that giving up one place could cause. Therefore you are all stupid if you think giving a place up is a good idea, lets just give another then another then another, lets just do that until we have nothing or just have the mainland US great ideas.
