Today I want to talk about State and Domestic issues. As it was last month, both are still seriously in need of repair.
Should be 'State of disrepair'. We have the ability to change this. We need to open up and be a bit more responsible in how we approach our Foreign Affairs. We still have no real friends out there on the government level after this long month. We have friends from other countries now in the eUS, helping us out and being great friends to us. Yet, they go unrecognized. Citizens from Greece, France, Albania, Croatia and Bosnia to name a few. I salute each and every one of them for their efforts to fight our PTO. Their drive is limitless and their dedication to our cause is second to none. We should be expanding on that, not just sitting back and figuring 'they owe us'.
Other countries we are cozying up to, however...they do not feel the same way. Yes, I am speaking of countries in and allied to CoT. These countries make up a huge percentage of the PTO clan. And yet, we are in the process of joining this alliance. They (except MKD) have given no inkling of ceasing these hostile relations. This MUST happen if we are to take this alliance seriously. As president, I will let CoT know that with no terms on the table, we want every PTO citizen removed from our country before we consider joining on any level, be it active member or trial. I feel we can do just fine without an alliance. If Cot wants our damage and cooperation, I think this is a rather small thing to ask for in return. How can we call them true allies when their citizenry disregard our want for a PTO free environment?
If we are to go alliance-less, I plan on working to ensure we have a solid MPP stack with countries that are like-minded. We want real allies, and my administration will work tirelessly to make that happen. We will no longer bow to countries who wish to use Ajay Bruno as a means to an end.
We need stronger retention, and better coordination in mentoring. This game starts from the bottom up, and my administration will explore the different ways we can take advantage of that. We will push activity in the various programs available, B4N, etc. These are successful programs on the surface, we only need to push active young players into it. We can start that by making the forums a more friendly place for people just starting. That forum can be quite intimidating for new folk...and I aim to change that.
I plan to introduce a new cabinet position this month. Secretary of Government and Party relations, headed by TheDillPickl. He has a keen interest in working with all non-PTO parties in the eUS, pushing communication and common goals. For too long, parties have just done their own thing, coming together a couple days before elections to help in ATO. ATO needs to be a round the clock process, because you KNOW the PTO is. Dill is not only organized, but dedicated to this job. It was, after all, his idea. I look forward to his plans for the month coming up, and will share them with all upon completion.
That's all for now. Next issue: Military and MU's.
John Jay, your POTUS candidate.
