This will be the third time that I have had my name on the ballot as a candidate for President of the eUSA. The first time I lost by a mile and expected it. The second I thought I had a decent chance to win, and lost by a slightly smaller (but still large) margin. Upon waking up on March 5th 2014 I logged in expecting a tight contest and was quickly disabused of that notion. “So closes my presidential window,” I thought to myself. I am now a multi time loser. During that campaign I had had to answer a lot of questions and take a lot of flak over my previous attempts at the big seat. I remember thinking something along the lines of “what do I do now?” It was with a great deal of relief that I accepted an offer to run ATO from Gnilraps. I had found my answer get back to work. I would continue to work in behalf of my country and my party. I did not expect another opportunity to present itself anytime soon.
In the 5 months since my last run things have changed quite a bit for me personally. I have gone from the outsider to in the “establishment pick”. Depending on your point of view that is a very good thing or a bad thing. To me it is just a bit surreal. Previous runs have been hard fought, stressful, and filled with backlash from enemies I foolishly made while figuring this whole political thing out. This time around has felt different. I would like to thank the diverse group of parties and individuals that have endorsed and supported me. It has truly been humbling and means more than my meager words can articulate.
I am asking for your vote because I believe I am a good fit for what we as a nation and community need. I am also living, breathing proof that hard work and perseverance can accomplish anything. I want opportunity and inclusion in the meta to be available to any citizen of this great nation. I want us to spend the next month (or two) working to build something great. A community that will stand the test of time. In addition to this there are of course the day to day obligations and necessities of run the Executive. We will be responsible, diligent, and faithful in the carrying out of our duties to the nation. We will protect our borders, keep our bonuses, deftly juggle the resetting of determination in our colonies, work to strengthen and expand Pacifica, and so much more.
To sum up. Win or lose (though I expect to win) I have enjoyed this campaign very much. I have relished sharing my vision for the country with you all. I would like to thank GoTJ for a fun race. We have been in communication throughout this campaign and it has been good to get to know him a little bit better. I have always viewed voting as a declaration of trust. I would ask you to place your trust in me for the next 30 days. Please vote for me, Tyler Bubblar!
