Yes, it is that time. Today, I officially throw my hat into the ring to be the next President of the United States of America. This campaign has at times both felt impossible to launch, and inevitable. There have always been things I’ve wanted to do, and now is the time.
First things first, if you see a shout or an article saying ‘Pfeiffer for President’ or something to that affect, know that the person is talking about me. I am known as Pfeiffer on the forums and on IRC. This is because I used to play under this name, and it is in fact my RL last name. When I returned to eRepublik last summer, it was simply easier to continue using the name most widely recognized.
So, now you know my name, but who am I? What have I done, and what am I planning?
I have served in both the Executive and Legislative branches of our government, and in leadership roles in each. The more prominent roles I’ve held are Deputy Speaker of the House multiple times, Speaker of the House, and Deputy White House Chief of Staff. On the military side, I served in the National Guard, Home Guard, and Mobile Infantry, and was a Company CO in the Home Guard once upon a time. I recently co-founded the Ultramarines militia with Avruch and Maruishima, and I must say, it’s one of the better experiences I’ve had in this game. The Ultramarines have opened a lot of doors to me, and I’m experiencing a whole new aspect of gameplay.
Terra Secretary General jamesw has invited the leaders of the major allied militias to join the Terran rooms used to coordinate allied strikes on priority targets. In this new role, I’ve gotten to know the Alliance leadership, and our allied nations leadership, much better. This crash course in Foreign Affairs (probably my weakest field, as Ambassador was the most intense position I’ve held in this area) has been nothing but beneficial for me as a player, and as a candidate for President.
A rather recent development (it literally happened this morning) Supreme Commander of Terra, Artela, asked me to be her Deputy Supreme Commander. In this role, I update the Terran Orders, and coordinate strikes of allied forces when Artela is offline, or when she says ‘Hey you do this’. I have to weigh requests from all of our member nations, and send support to the places that can best use it. This job has already proven to be a great opportunity to work with foreign leadership, and I look forward to seeing where it leads.
I will announce my Vice President and Senior Cabinet members in a coming article, for now, if you’re interested in helping in the Administration, fill out this form.
A more in depth explanation of what I have in mind for our country will follow soon. If you need anything, just shoot me a message, or find me on IRC in the room #planbetter.
