Ok America let’s get serious here (because pure entertainment is lost on some people). I wasn’t rage quitting. I wasn’t attention wh*ring, either. All I seek is entertainment, but it’s going to take a major shift in this game for it to be fun again. This is the shift. I went to heaven where I was bestowed with a special mission by Dio Brando, Pope Jude the First, and a Cat to seek out and oppose “The Unspoken One”. Guess Who??
What this game lacks is entertainment. There are plenty of great minds but unfortunately they have never really been able to flourish and rise through the process of natural selection. I’m going to repeat that: Natural Selection Why? Because some people simply can’t let go of the reigns. They want or need to be King Makers to satisfy their own ego. The game, by its true nature, is uncontrollable to a certain extent. Some people however refuse to allow that. What has the game they have played gotten you??? Nothing. Pure and utter stagnation.
You have rigged elections and predetermined outcomes. It’s all become so predictable that anyone can claim to have chosen all of our leaders. It’s obvious who will do what. All of those candidates feeling the need to cater to one or two people because they fear what might happen to them if they don’t. Sure they get the illusion of self-determination, but it is merely an illusion. They’re threatened and manipulated and forced to be pawns in someone elses game or face the wrath. It’s a treat isn’t it? Dare to do anything different and defy the status quo and you will be “destroyed”. That’s inspiring isn’t it?
But Josh... you’re running for President right??? Nope... at least not now. I’m doing exactly what I said I would do. I’m helping the Federalist Party hand out tanks, send PM’s and write articles. I try to be entertaining when I do those things though which is important. This is a game, after all. I didn’t come back to be stressed out and threatened.
See when I came back I had a pretty enticing offer. I could help “rebrand” the USWP..... maybe I could even take over the SEALS and pull them back into the USWP and create a really powerful party again or I could publicly lambast them and try to destroy them. Was I tempted... You bet. Now I’m not saying that the USWP’s rebranding attempt is not legit and I do trust Rainy Sunday, but the real head of that party passing time in his own little vanity party doesn’t mean he’s released control. They must still kiss the ring.
I simply do not care to perpetuate the long standing system of King Making that has occurred in this country. Are the SEALS having fun playing the game as they see fit? Yes they are... Then why do I care? Let them do what they choose to do. The USWP?? Let them rebrand free of interference and see if they rise or fall on the basis of their ideas or work ethic. They don’t need to be propped up, they need to be set free.
For choosing my own path since I have gotten back, for choosing the Federalist Party, I received a nice phone call calling me an a*shole and saying I made a fellow player and friend break down and cry on the phone. Was it true? Nope. Just somebody trying to manipulate the situation because he didn’t get his way. A bit excessive don’t you think?? You can only imagine how he reacted when fingerguns rejected his proposal. Someone has a little difficulty with being told ‘no.’
Now, I’m not going to lie to you. I love glory. I love being patted on the head and have somebody say good kitty. I enjoy praise. Some people however can only get off on believing they control other people. They don’t want respect, they want fear. They don’t want friends, they want minions.
He’s changed though right?? His new article clearly illustrates that he wants to help certain players achieve their potential. Yeah... that’s what the emperor in Star Wars told Anakin. Same game, but different strategy. A leopard can’t change its spots. Claiming players as his chosen few is literally nothing new, even if those names are. He’s marking territory.
Unity is not necessary anymore. It’s time has passed. The current “threat in the U.S.” might muster anywhere from 30-32% of the vote. I think if the ordinary average American citizen is allowed to compete in an unimpeded political arena where ideas are not mocked and the ability to shake the status quo is encouraged you might actually find that new and dynamic candidate to lead this nation but it has to be done without “King Making”.
Will it happen? I don’t know. I might have signed my own political death warrant with this single article. The question is: Do I care? The answer is: No. I killed myself and I came back. What can you do? It’s just a game. It doesn’t define me or who I am. I think if you want power in this nation then you should have the courage to stand before the electorate and face the verdict of the American voter. Don’t sit in back rooms and act like some Tammany Hall power broker pulling strings so you can get who or what you want It’s cheap and pathetic.
Alexander the Great lived for 33 years. Between the ages of 19-33 he conquered most of the known world. He was unbeatable. At the age of 33 he laid on his deathbed and all of his generals asked him who his great empire should belong to. Expecting him to give an answer they all leaned forward and heard his response... “To the strongest”. An empire shouldn’t be given to the chosen. It should be taken by the strongest. Next election lets have a free standing election and lets let the strongest candidate win and things just might change.
There is nothing to be afraid of.
