In our last read we left off after post war blues. To sum the last article, Uncle Sam was born and began to build up his reputation. He ran into three companies and established connections with Benn Dover as business partners. the Patriot became a part of the leadership in the DoD (Department of Defense) Under Dishmcds, his mentor during his early stages of life. He helped to organize the war effort against Canada, which sadly ended poorly. After the war Uncle Sam along with many other Americans fell into a depression after the war. Unlike some of his friends such as Micheal Ingram, Uncle Sam stayed in the USA to stick it out and wait for the long haul, despite being tempted by the book of Dio.
And so we begin with Part 2!
After Nave we re-elected for his third term as president, Uncle Sam began to help stabilize the economy with both his companies, and his control over the monetary market on Harrisburg Bank. While this was a tough job, it had to be done. This time was also quite difficult for Uncle Sam, however there were other things that helped him to stay afloat.
During this time of reconstruction, market prices were going crazy. This created a friction between many different business owners. Dishmcds, owner of Colorado Savings and Loans, started to offer higher employee salaries in order to increase productivity that would match increased market prices that followed the Canadian War. This caused a panic between many other business owners, especially Uncle Sam as he was competing with Dish in every market. Sam approached Dish and made him an offer that would combine both of their businesses. After giving it some though, Dish agreed and together they created Mongoose Corp. This became the SO that allowed Sam to work for either himself of other employees, getting his skill up while still managing his companies. Together for a while Dish and Sam built up the companies.
Shortly after the founding of Mongoose, a new economical powerhouse showed up in the USA. Vienna HOLDING took root and began building companies. Taking advantage of the recent inflation, they started driving employee wages way up through competition and the demand for employees via poaching. Uncle Sam and Dish, recently having merged to form a corporation that was meant to work together for the benefit of the country could not stand for the increasing employee wages. They fought hard against the presence of Vienna HOLDING and attempted to boycotts of their products. Uncle Sam made an enemy those days and for quite a while had a grudge against Vienna's business practices. Dish however, took a more open approach to the situation and eventually accepted Vienna to a certain degree. After dealing with Vienna, it was one of the last times the Dish and Sam would work together.
The Democratic Party
After Nave was elected, Uncle Sam decided to run for Democratic Party President against Benn Dover. in short, he lost after a tough fight. This did not deter Uncle Sam however as he wished to continue being politically active. still participating in congress he moved forward during Naves last term and stuck with US politics as his friends moved in different directions. Benn Dover was heading off towards the life of a war merc while Nave was retiring in the US to go on a personal vacation in Greece. A new found friend, Justinious was moving to run for president as well.
Benn took his leave at the end of the month when General elections came around and Dish became president. At that time, he gave the Democratic party over to Uncle Sam who started doing his usual analysis of the situation. During this time as Democratic Party President, Uncle Sam did not stay at his post the entire time. His friend Archibald was his vice president and while Uncle Sam was beginning to enjoy his mobility from being out of congress, Archibald took Party President position during Uncle Sam's trips overseas to stock up on cheep products. Sadly, due to a bug with the monetary market Uncle Sam was not about to return the night of party elections, and so he was not on the ballot. Without this official title anymore, even though it was known that had he been on the ballot Uncle Sam would have won, Archibald kept the position and it was never returned to Sam.
The Life of a War Mercenary
After Uncle Sam lost the Democratic Party, he had to find something else to do within erepublik. Politics had gotten boring for him at the time, and holding a government position was too much work for him while he was going to be on vacation for the summer. Finding something fun and constructive with his eLife that required little work was key. At this point Benn Dover offered for Uncle Sam to join him in his war mercing life. After studying all kinds of war tactics through the fights that the US had been involved with after the Canadian War, Uncle Sam accepted the offer and began his new life as a War Mercenary.
Uncle Sam began his fighting as a war merc in South Africa against Indonesia. There he made many connection, became more familiar with other war mercs, some on his side and others that he fought. These figures would be a part of his life for quite a while as the war mercing community was tight. Everyone knew everyone else through the battle field and South Africa began this fun experience for Uncle Sam. Despite being paid very little to fight, it got him wins and rank while learning the ropes of war more closely.
The next fight that Uncle Sam got involved with was the one between Hungary and Czech Republic. There he met a lot of the same people fighting, mostly from the USA since it had become the war hub of the world with many MPP's and a Q4 hospital. War merc flocked to the USA and fought from there or fought for Hungary. Pay this time around was a bit better as some of the people he fought against in the last war were now fighting on his side. So goes the life of a War Mercenary Uncle Sam learned as it is not allegiance to a particular country that drives mercenaries, but gold.
This was the most interesting war that Uncle Sam fought in. Accumulating many wins in this war, Sam and Benn found themselves with piles of gold. Due to international reputation, the two established good relations with Selcuk, the president of Turkey and arranged it so that they would have a huge budget set aside just for fighting and conquering regions as the critical times of war. The payout at the end of this conquest was huge and helped to build up personal stocks of money within Harrisburg Bank. After this war sadly, Uncle Sam retired the life of War Mercenary as he longed to return to his homeland of the USA and get involved once again.
Capital Bank of America
For the General Elections of September 1st, Benn Dover was not allowed to vote because of the new rule of remaining in a country for 10 days at a time. Frustrated at this fact, and not wanting to be denied his right to vote, Benn Dover cast his vote on the SO of Harrisburg Bank. This was caught by the admins, and the SO that was so well known in the USA was about to be banned. Graciously however, the Admins gave the two time to move all of companies and money over to a new SO. And so, Capital Bank of America was born! This new SO, that moved to every country around the world had access to every monetary market and held all of Uncle Sam's and Benn Dover's Companies (excluding the ones that couldn't be held due to more that one company in a certain domain, these were help on mongoose). At This point, Dish had stopped with his interactions with mongoose and so Uncle Sam gave Benn access to that account. Now focusing together, the two life long friends began once again to build up companies and establish the now world famous organization Capital Bank of America.
