[Feds] EZC-Feds Split

Day 1,943, 09:57 Published in USA USA by fingerguns

Gnilraps has declared via public article that Easy Company will no longer be affiliated with the Federalist Party.

While this wasn't actually discussed with party leadership and we found out the same time everyone else did, I believe this move is for the best. With both the Feds and Easy Company growing so quickly, it has been difficult to balance these two entities and it is good that we part ways amicably before hard feelings develop. In Gnilraps' article, he cited the political nature of the party as being a turn off for recruits. The irony here cannot be overlooked, as Gnilraps just finished a term as Party President and his only objective was to make the party more political. I bring that up only to lol a bit.

But it really is more than just political opinions of party members at work here. As he said, EZC members have difficulty moving into leadership without being a member of the party, as per the charter. That is unfair. Conversely, Fed party members have difficulty moving up in party leadership without being a member of Easy Company simply because of MU loyalties. That is equally unfair. The best possible scenario is to be both a Fed and a member of EZC, but everyone agrees that it just feels wrong to require such a thing for people to grow and develop in this game. It is for this reason that I accept EZC's decision and wish them the best of luck in the future.

If you don't know the history of Easy Company, it was the evolution of our party's public service programs, providing food and weapons to our members. Eventually we developed communes to help cover the cost of supplies and soon it was a full blown militia. For the next few years, the party supported Easy Company through all of the ups and downs, and Easy Company has served as one of the best recruiting tools the party could ever hope for.

We have enjoyed this relationship together for the last few years, and a large portion of our Fed population proudly sports EZC uniforms while a large portion of EZC membership is undeniably p/h. It will be a while before that changes, I'm sure. And I suppose it is fitting that I am Party President as Easy Company grows beyond the Federalist Party, as I was the Party President that oversaw its creation.

Over this weekend, Easy Company will be moving off of the Fed forum and to their new home. We look forward to seeing how things develop for everyone involved.

I've been a member of Easy Company since the day it started, and I will hopefully remain a member of Easy Company until they kick my ass out.



Thanks for reading,

Get involved. Get active. Shape the future.

Love the feds. Wish that the split would have been managed better though. I think that it could have been done with more respect to the party I guess.

But I still wish nothing but the best to EZC

As a Fed not in EZC I understand what you're saying, though I do wish Fed Leadership had been given a warning just a bit earlier, out of courtesy, still P/H

I'm a USWP member and in the EZC.

I've never felt any pressure to join the Feds since joining EZC and never felt that not being a Fed member was holding me back in EZC. I never felt excluded in any way. Because of that, I was perfectly happy with the previous arrangement.

Actually, the prior affiliation with the Feds was one of the reasons I joined the EZC in the first place. The Feds have tons of good people and I saw joining EZC as a way to affiliate with them without leaving my party. Both in my previous life and my current life, I thought both the EZC and Feds helped each other. The relationship helped the EZC grow and helped the Feds retain their members.

That being said, I trust the EZC leadership is doing what it thinks is best for the MU. I'll stay in EZC and will continue to try to be the best soldier I can be and the best representative of the EZC I can be.

Thanks for writing this Fingerguns.

Thanks for the party leadership perspective on this.

Simulare Day 1,943, 13:58

lol @ interesting times. Nothing mildly interesting here. Course, If I was in EZC, I wouldn't want to be associated with Zooey wannabee either.

fingerguns Day 1,943, 13:59

They haven't kicked me out of the MU, as far as I know. I guess they're stuck with me for now.

Simulare Day 1,943, 14:31

Yeah, I get it. I rescue shelter dogs. Its a nice feeling to give the less fortunate a home and a sense of worth.

sounds right to me, party's and MU's should be separate, there is already to much monopoly in the country.
