Recently Josh wrote an article titled Frost/McFarland for February: Helping the Military..... He covered two basic ideas, Strength Equals Victory & Rank Equals Wreckage. He outlined some plans for increasing the strength and rank of the military. He covered them pretty well, so I won't go any further into those plans. Let's talk about work communes.
I have put a lot of gold into supplying the MI with companies and upgrading the forts system. At least 400-500. I have no desire to drag up links and details, but it's significant. I mention this only to point out that I have seen the results. The MI has been able to accomplish much, much more. Every dollar goes farther, because they are able to self-supply much more then they could before. They are much more self-sufficient.
Naturally, this success has more to do with the organizational skills of beerman616, Seuss, GoalieBCSC, and others, since they made everything work. The success should also be rightly attributed to every patriot in MI who works for minimum wage in these companies, producing the tools of war for their themselves and their peers. My only contribution was to empower them to maximize their own potential. I'd like to do the same for the entire military.
So, I'd like to make a simple offer to the entire eUSA Military. I'll pay for whatever work communes you want. This offer is open-ended, regardless of who wins this election. There is no upper limit to the price tag. I enjoy my time here, it's worth the investment, and I want to see the eUSA Military rise to ever greater heights. I strongly believe that work communes are a step along this path.
Let's make the eUSA military the most powerful, most efficient machine we can manage, right now, in V1. Later, when V2 comes, we will adjust fire. Let's worry about the present, since we have no arrival date for the future. We can cross that bridge when we come to it.
To be perfectly clear, I offer to pay for the following:
1. Whatever organizations the military needs.
~ These might be used for item distribution and/or holding companies.
2. Whatever companies the military needs, within these parameters:
~ Manufacturing and Constructions companies will be purchased from the USA companies for sale market; they will only be located within the original 51 regions. New companies will only be built if there are no companies for sale at reasonable prices. Additionally, if the military currently operates any manufacturing or constructions companies overseas, I will buy those from them for market resale, and provide them with equivalent companies located in the original 51 regions.
~ Land companies will be handled similarly for high grain/oil/wood. High iron/diamond companies can be located in any allied nation, though I prefer iron companies in Karnataka. I will provide the eUSA export license for any iron/diamond companies overseas.
3. Whatever company upgrades the military needs, within these parameters:
~ Weapons: Only Q1/3/5. The cost/benefits ratio for Q2/4 sucks.
~ Moving Tickets: Only Q1/3. The Q2 ones are pointless, and Q4/5 have poor cost/benefit ratios.
~ Food: Any Q1/2/3/4/5 requested.
~ Gifts: Only Q1. The cost/benefits ratio for Q2/3/4/5 sucks.
~ Land: Only Q3/4. The cost/benefits ratio for Q1/2/5 sucks.
~ Houses: Any Q1/2/3/4/5 requested.
~ Infrastructure: Stay away from my monopoly.
In summary, I will pay for whatever work communes the military can staff with their workers.
Some of you may be wondering if this is possible. It sounds expensive, doesn't it? Relax. It's fine. To put things in perspective for you, I pulled some info from my real life bank statements. In the past quarter (90 days) I spent $7,925.25 on eRepublik. Mind you, this figure is in real money.
Guess what? This is within my quarterly budget for leisure activities. I enjoy my time here, or I wouldn't be here. I spend my money freely on the things in life that I enjoy. So, it's fine.
Don't worry about the price tag for my plan. If the military wants to improve their efficiency with work communes, then I've got them covered, 100%. It's as simple as that. Let's empower them.
