[Artela] A Surprising Turn of Events

Day 2,170, 12:28 Published in USA USA by Artela

Good day eAmerica.

This may not be the follow up article you were expecting. It certainly isn’t the one I was expecting to make a couple of days ago.

This latest term has proven to be a great one, and between us Josh Frost, MelissaRose and myself managed to arrange a peace with our enemies to allow us to return the map, stabilize, regroup and grow, and also to finally end the presence in our top five parties of RGR, the AFA, and the ever present PTOing Serbs. Personally I’ve been POTUS for three terms, and have just had what I regard as the most successful short period of a Secretary of State in the time that I have been proud to call myself an eAmerican. What better way to gracefully take a step back than to do it on the back of such achievements? Achievement Unlocked!

What has brought this about you may ask? Well, I read with interest Israel Stevens’ campaign opener, and do you know what, he’s right.

It is time that the brightest and best of the newer players that are around get the chance to aspire to great things and to take to the wing and prove they can soar.

So, here is my invitation to Israel to do the same as me - to step back and be content with former glories, and to help promote the up and coming new players from the top five parties.

In doing so I issue a challenge to all the top five parties to help lead the way in this change.

I know you have all started your nomination processes, but if you are prepared to put that on hold for just a short while and have the courage to nominate from among your ranks the brightest and best person from your rising stars to stand from your party we could have a truly epic Presidential election with a contest containing the best each party has to offer.

Think about it (but not for too long, game deadlines loom) and support it - give your brightest and best the push and the opportunity to try to succeed!

I still believe...
We are a proud nation, and I am proud of this nation.
Together we can do great things.

All the best

I like the idea immensely... A five party race for our new Top 5 Parties!!! Let's make this happen America!!!

Good PR, Mr. Frost 😉 Is she paying you? She should be.

Now THIS is a good idea

Surprising is 9000 storage, which costs 30 gold, but you can get it for free +1000 storage = 10k storage... First useful reward, I think.

Bucephalus92 Day 2,170, 13:00

Well this is interesting.

Israel Stevens
Israel Stevens Day 2,170, 13:06

Well that was easy.

Tiamati Day 2,170, 13:26

So, the elitist refuses to drop out despite Artela's call to action; not surprising.

Well crap that was unexpected

DylanBAS Day 2,170, 13:16

I feel like this is an attempt to hedge your bets. You were worried that Isreal would beat you after all the publicity your stunningly vapid article got, and so your finding a good way to withdrawl while making sure Isreal either looks like a hypocrite or concedes the race alongside you. This is a good idea, but I think you've chosen it for all the wrong reasons.

Artela Day 2,170, 13:25

Well, as you don't actually know me, I choose to ignore your cynicism. I'm sure there are plenty who will love the idea of a 5 way run between some eYounger talent 🙂

DylanBAS Day 2,170, 13:32

"I'm sure there are plenty who will love the idea of a 5 way run between some eYounger talent 🙂"
I am as well, but like I said, right action, wrong reasons.

Trogdorthetroll100 Day 2,170, 13:27

Well aren't you a pessimist 🙁 Benefit of the doubt, no?

DylanBAS Day 2,170, 13:34

Benefit where benefit is due. When you call someone a pessimist for looking reality in the eye and being honest, that says something of reality.

Trogdorthetroll100 Day 2,170, 13:47

I think you discredit possible good intentions too easily. I am not so quick to judge, but do not perceive my hesitance and faith in people as naivete. You also cannot accurately predict the result of a presidential race between two very qualified CP candidates from one campaign article.

...and the truth bomb goes BOOM. Well done, Dylan.

DylanBAS Day 2,170, 13:41

Comment deleted

DylanBAS Day 2,170, 13:42

Deleted that comment due to typo.

I'm no one special in my grasp of human motive, just in my willingness to lampoon publicly that which should be lampooned, without regret for the fallout.

Artela Day 2,170, 13:42

Heh. You've never liked me anyway so I guess you _are_ going to use any excuse to fire shots lol

Bia Pandora
Bia Pandora Day 2,170, 13:44

The truth will always be the truth, whether one "likes" you or not. And the truth always wins.

Artela Day 2,170, 13:50

Shame your "truth" doesn't match reality really then isn't it 😃

Bia Pandora
Bia Pandora Day 2,170, 13:54

If my "truth doesn't match reality", you wouldn't be so agitated. Simmer down, cupcake. You are reaching now.

stay in the race man. Don't be intimidated.

Welcome to the game, noob.

PROTIP: Do research before you make yourself look like the last two letters of your name.

Iamnameless Day 2,170, 13:25

Could be the most interesting election in a long time.

Artela Day 2,170, 13:26

I do hope so

Utat Day 2,170, 13:26


Tiamati Day 2,170, 13:28

Voted; while it is my hope you will continue to remain active within the community I support your call to action for IS to join you in abandoning the race for PotUS as you have already held the position.

shiloh13 Day 2,170, 13:52

Is this to be people from just the top 5? Why not from the 6th parties as well.
Like SFP you know folks like that.
Oh pay no attention to my current party membership, I am not an ajay supporter,just to get that out of the way. Just wondering why 6th Parties never get any respect at all.

Franklin Stone
Franklin Stone Day 2,170, 19:09

Only Top 5 parties can run candidates....

Artela Day 2,170, 14:34

I am, admittedly, amused by a few of the responses reaching wildly into the dark to grasp on rattlesnakes and ghosties (quite apt for the time of year though that is), but am truly heartened to see so many already taking this in the spirit that was intended - it looks like it's going to be a good race!

Yetlanesi Day 2,170, 14:52

Well done, Artela.

USA really needed UNION


BryceHa Day 2,170, 14:53

I Really like this idea.. but one problem i see is RGR taking over from here, he could use this in his favor by any means and he will. I hope this is a good move, i love the idea Artela. and you're really nice. i voted and subbed. Have a good day 🙂

You and Palestinian Stevens both support the ILLEGAL(by your own rules) approval of Pfeiffer.

The rules don't apply when they are inconvenient to you

nuff' said

Josh Frost Day 2,170, 15:18

blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Shut up!!

How's 6th place treating you Ronny? lol

shiloh13 Day 2,170, 17:26

He is not very happy about that in the least,poor little clown boy. It is a freaky little dictatorship over there, awful. God help us.

Alexander Atem

Franklin Stone
Franklin Stone Day 2,170, 19:18

Although I dislike RGR as much as I dislike Pfuffer, I must agree that it seems as though the rules were ignored for a traitor who fought against America while President and who defected to TWO....

Johnvacan160 Day 2,172, 04:30

Franklin their so much distracted by RGR that Pfeiffer will strike out of nowhere. then he will be the big problem and i don't know how you will take care of 2 big problems anyways that happens or it doesn't we will be taking control soon. brace yourself 😃
