[LARGO4POTUS] Largo is Amazing

Day 2,175, 17:44 Published in USA USA by John Largo

In my last article I explained that I was going to be the next President of the eUnited States (POTUS), and all you had to do to make that happen was to remember Largo is the Word

Unfortunately, it may not be that simple. You see, I am the candidate for the American Military Party (✯ ✯ ✯ Feel the AMPs! ✯ ✯ ✯), which is currently in 5th place in the party rankings. The sixth party is closing fast and would you believe it, the sixth party is run by none other than eAmerica's number one internal enemy, RGR. So basically not only do I need you to vote for me, but I need everyone who is not in a party or in a party outside of the top 5 to join AMP (through the 5th). Go do that and come back to this article.

Are you back? Good. Thank you in advance for getting me on the ballot and voting for me. Now you get a reward.

I was planning on running a covert campaign, lulling my opposition to sleep, and then, BAM!, win the election. But you deserve a reward for helping me win this election, so I'll share the 2 Game-Changers which will make my Amazing Presidency the most memorable ever.

Game Changer #1 - Transparency and Inclusion
In the Presidential Debate (Which I won, read and decide for yourself), I hinted at my cabinet plan, but didn't go into detail.

Basically, I will have no cabinet, which means that I will have the biggest cabinet ever! Confused? Let me explain.

Throughout my time playing this game, I have gained access to further and further levels that I never knew existed when I was a new player. There is only a certain frosted over conversation that occurs in public. The real fun in this game occurs in private; In Private Congress, In Private Party Leadership Rooms, In Private Military Leader Meetings, In Private Presidential Daily Briefings. For me, this is where the fun lies, and I want to share as much of it as I can with the eAmerican citizens.

So basically I will open my Presidential Daily Briefing thread to all eAmerican citizens who want to work to better our country. And in this act, I will not have a small group of people as a cabinet, I will have an entire country!

Yes, yes, Largo is Amazing, but hold on, I haven't gotten to my second game changer.

Game Changer #2 - Building Our Future
You'll hear many people espousing the need to have a baby boom, but how many of them have ideas for keeping those babies coming back and growing into the future of the eUS? We have food programs and weapons programs, and even gold for training programs, this isn't new, and its not working well enough. Why is that?

To me the problem is boredom. The game is what the game is. We cannot expect Plato to fix this for us, but what can we do?

I think that we need to have something interesting to happen every day to spur our citizens to return and build their characters. It has to be the expectation that something will happen each day, but what exactly happens needs to be a surprise...a reason to stay tuned.

So, as President, I will enact the WHEEL of OPPORTUNITY! I will probably start the first few days off with planned surprises and contests, but my cabinet (of no one, meaning everyone) will get to provide their own ideas to be added to the WHEEL of OPPORTUNITY, and I will give it a spin each morning.

So look at the other candidates, and see fresh faces. Then read their campaign articles to discover stale ideas. Don't vote for a new face promising the same old same old. Vote for experience and a new way to have fun.

On the fifth of November, Vote Largo.

Interesting! however I would be interested to know how the work will get done with no one in key positions. that being said i do like the idea of the general populace being in on daily operations information. with an exception of course to sensitive information pertaining to national security. i would recommend having some kind of open door policy to the meetings rather then a no cabinet policy. also you are going to want to strengthen the arm of your foreign Policy. I recommend that if you get elected you really focus on recruiting Ambassadors with an emphasis on fostering positive relations with key allies and even those who could be considered a possible threat to our national security. Knowledge is Power as they say. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. you might also spend some time looking into reaching across party lines for a more cooperative approach to things. i would suggest having weekly meetings with all the Party heads. perhaps give them a weekly report on how things are progressing and what your focus for the following week might entail. allow them an opportunity to give feed back. a unified country will go a lot further then one divided. just some food for thought. 🙂
