[CP Elections] Tim_Holtz – Security and Finance

Day 1,901, 18:42 Published in Australia Australia by Tim_Holtz
Apologies: I’ve been busy with a few RL issues the last 1-2 days so I didn't release this as planned, as such I will be releasing this and then this afternoon I will release the Defence and Foreign Affairs Article


I have decided to separate the Security department into 2 groups, Immigration and Homeland Security which are to be under the same department but managed by 2 different people.

Immigration will carry on as normal but Homeland Security will be a specific division looking for International threats and concerns be they PTO or otherwise. Naturally these 2 Ministers will work together but will have separate responsibilities.


Since the economic module is in the literal shitter at the present the finance has become a more important issue. On IRC I remember someone saying that the days of the ADF getting a cool mil for spending are gone. Unfortunately its true and we are going to have to watch every penny that comes in and out of the bank. This means only strategic and useful MPPs and very tight spending for other things.

Since our income is very small we are forced to work with a deficit. However this is a necessary evil. If we tried to work a surplus then we could hardly fund 2 MPPs and the ADF. We are lucky that we have had good economic advisers in the past who have advocated a stockpiling policy and as such we are not completely screwed treasury wise like so many of our neighbours (hint they rhyme with Gidonesia and Fille).

This means that we are going to be watchful of spending and really only hit it hard when there is a chance of lasting victory.

Also buy Australian for tax purposes, even if it costs more you help the country afford funding for MPPs and other things.

Thank you for reading
Tim_Holtz 4 CP

Viva la free trade!

Some of eAustralia's ORs are annexed by eChile at present and if in one of those regions it would be stupid if players with minimal resources don't buy the cheapest on offer. This works both ways as well. At present eAus Q7 weapons 0.80cc are far cheaper than eChiles 1.10cc. But there are cases where it's the other way around. The eRep marketplace is like RL in so many ways - people buy what they can afford.

If eAus GMs want people to buy their product - get proactive and drop prices. If they can't afford to do that - find cheaper ways of producing them.

Instead of handing the ADF a big wad of cash like has been wastefully done in the past, force commune on every member. For too long some have been double-dipping by working independently and taking supplies. I've said for YEARS - look at KH's system. It's been going for at least the past 3 years that I know of is still going unlike the collapse of many others. At their worst time ever they dropped down some supply levels.

TL;DR - think like a capitalist to win like a capitalist. The government thinks the Treasury is one gigantic Centrelink with an oh ye bottomless pit. I warned the government months ago. As usual I was ignored. Another win for me.

Cabinet list to come out soon?

Who will be fulfilling these roles?

Well if someone wants to donate 1000g to the Government to get one q7 commune go for it... oh and we needs massive amounts of mines too, so someone needs to pay for those as well.

This is why TJ (Mick Gatto) is largely ignored. He still fails to understand game dynamics and has made no attempt to learn why things that are blindly obvious have not happened.

Of course communes for the ADF is the best option, a blind man with a dog can see that. Have you got 1000g? and remember it HAS to be in a citizens name so who would you decide is trustworthy enough to have 1000g handed to them? they also have to keep the commune running and to ensure they are functioning at maximum efficiency because Senate will watch them like a hawk and expect daily reports.

Hot tip, its a game. Nobody will take on that much pressure, nor should they.

Nicky3Fingers Day 1,901, 22:04

I could be that trustworthy person :3 haha....but why does it have to be a Q7? Sure that would be best but it could be q6 or even q5 it may not be as good but half a loaf is better then no loaf at all in my opinion

tbh I have no idea... I only use Q7's though... maybe its just an arrogance issue lol.

The ADF funding has been looked at ever which way. Infin just completed some recommendations for the ADF so we sorta need to see what happens with those but Gov run Communes just are not viable.

Some MU's have communes but those are all private, and eternally frustrating for their owners who try to make it viable.

Nicky3Fingers Day 1,901, 22:41

Haha perhaps so

Government communes are impossible unless we're are a rich nation. Which we are not.

The only viable communes are run by people using Mastercard- see if you can figure it out

TJ what are you babbling on about now? You provide misleading information every time you say something. I was simply correcting your error (as usual) so that Nicky understands why we don't have Gov communes.

If you stopped saying stupid shit nobody would need to correct you.

LanyIsLost Day 1,902, 05:31

You can scrap the Homeland Security and Immigration departments altogether, we have senators who decide who to grant citizenship to.

Lord TJ
Lord TJ Day 1,902, 06:47

The only thing misleading I said was weapons. I meant food. Other than that your useless propaganda campaign against me fails again Larni. Go drink it up some more and try not to swallow the bottle as well.

Icetek Day 1,902, 17:10

Tim take some leadership and say you will suspend the ADF until we have a more balanced budget. I dont even know wtf your talking about in the finances..... You said the problems, but no solutions. Im sure people would agree better to end ADF then it having to end by force.

Tim_Holtz Day 1,902, 19:52

please read properly, i said cut backs will happen but we are forced to work in a deficit

Icetek Day 1,902, 20:59

when i see it being sugar coated is just looks like bs...

Tim_Holtz Day 1,902, 21:27

obviously it reflects more so on your ability to read.

Valentyme Day 1,903, 23:00

@Icetek Try proposing viable solutions and maybe people might actually respect you.

Icetek Day 1,903, 00:54

Valentyme how do you take what i say and use it against me? My God, this country is really down under......

Icetek Day 1,903, 00:55

Tim i dont think you even know what you just said LOL.

You remind me of Sponge BoB
