Arundel for President? Ok, sure

Day 1,750, 09:44 Published in USA USA by Pfeiffer.

Basically, due to the massive power outages and limited internet connectivity after Hurricane Isaac faceraped the city in which I live...I missed the period where I was meant to nominate a Presidential candidate. That means I'm on the ballot, as I was the 'placeholder' until that point.

This is Isaac, we spent some quality time together last week

Given that my main 'competitor' is someone I respect a lot, I'm actually excited about this election. Israel Stevens is a bright dude, and I've enjoyed working with him in the past (and look forward to doing so again in the future). Don't take that to mean I wouldn't do a darn fine job as President, and that I wouldn't enjoy doing the only job I've never done in this country...because I would.

In that vein, and because if I were to win it stands to reason that Israel will have come in second, I intend to have Israel serve as Vice President. This covers mechanics, and our fun little roleplay with titles and badges and all sorts of stuff. I trust Israel, he'd have account access, and I'd also offer him the Secretary of Defense position. This would make him the number 2 in both Executive and Military functions, which I trust him with and know he can handle. I use all of this in a hypothetical sense just because I haven't actually spoken to him yet. However, I know if asked to serve he wouldn't say I'm going to impose on his patriotism.

I'm going to impose on another friend of mine to serve his country once again...

Inwegen will return to his old post as Chief of Staff. Not much else needs to be said, except that during the 15th to 17th Inwegen will hand over the CoS role to his successor, who to that point he will be preparing in his own special Inwegen way.

Molly Emma will be Inwegen's Deputy and successor (another person I haven't technically asked to fill their role...but she was my First Lady in another game some of us I think I can convince her 😛 ). Basically, Molly Emma is a baws, and once she's learned the few tricks Inwegen can impart, will be a phenomenal CoS.

Some other people...

Gnilraps will be offered a combined Deputy slot in DoD and NSC, to continue the work he is doing now.

Avruch and Vanek (and sometimes Cerb) will be handling the running of the NSC. I'll let the them decide who gets which title, I know the prestige doesn't matter to any of them. They will be free to choose their own staff, including carrying over the current staff if they so choose. I trust them completely.

State is a bit of a toss up right now, but I'm going to consult with Tenshibo and Fhaemita to have someone chosen by eNPR tonight.

The only other position I think you guys might be interested in is media. While I think I've shown that I can in fact write an article (when not as rushed as I am now) that's worth reading, I am going to ask George Armstrong Custer, my number 17 buttbuddy, to remain as Secretary of Media. Custer and I butt heads a lot, but he's like a 'fire and forget' missle. I'm gonna tell him to write stuff, proofread it once, then he can publish pretty much whatever. Also Chutley can publish something if he wants.

You think Custer saw this coming?

Ummmmm, if you want to do stuff and have an idea about what that might be and/or who you'd like to work with...send me a message. This is a bit spur of the moment, but we've got the bones for a good administration.

As always, I remain


Henry Arundel

kinda funny, several candidates, same cabinet

but why have a sec. of media that won't answer questions?

Norbengo Day 1,750, 11:16

kinda funny, several candidates, same cabinet x2

But anyway I'm afraid that POTUS will be elected in the EDEN HQ, just like the last time.

bigcdizzle Day 1,750, 11:19

well....this is interesting....

fanaticro Day 1,750, 11:21

good luck Henry!

fingerguns Day 1,750, 11:27

Well, if you were ever going to become POTUS, it would definitely be under shady circumstances such as these.

Pfeiffer. Day 1,750, 11:45

@rainy - Alex and I haven't had a lot of time to talk, with our schedules not matching up since I've been back on the grid. He knows he'll be more than welcome in State or Defense if he wants to work there.

@fingerguns - love you too, boo-boo

Well, hmm...
if I were you and he were willing, I'd ask him to help in the weaker of the two - State Dept.

What are your views on the recent move to reduce regions?

Pfeiffer. Day 1,750, 12:01

I've thought it was needed for a while. It isn't an elegant solution, and it isn't even a guarantee to work...but we have to do something about it. The true believers will stick around to ride out the PTO, but the rank and file who came here to boost their production will leave, shrinking the voter base those with malicious intent rely on to win elections.

Worst case scenario, it gives us a region to hit Mexico and Canada again.

Most people claim you're the de facto president anyway, and have been for years now, so you may as well finally get a medal for it.

Good luck, Henry

Relorian Day 1,750, 15:27

So lemme get this straight... You want the eUS People to vote you into an office you've long manipulated and proven that you cant pick leadership for just because your power was out? For someone who shares his log in information and has people log into his account at various times, you couldnt find one person to log in ? I dont buy it one bit.

You picked 5 losers who left this nation a worse place, there's no reason to expect your term to be any different then theirs.

Got my vote.

Fitisin Day 1,750, 15:56

I'm certain that Ajay thinks Hurricane Isaac was caused, not by high barometric pressure, but by gay marriage.

Pfeiffer. Day 1,750, 16:09

I share my login information and have people log into my account at various times? Oh, Relorian. You so silly. Probably should have given Inwegen my info to do it, but wasn't really a priority given everything going on at the time.

don't tempt me

Relorian Day 1,750, 21:26

Yeah, I dont buy it. You at one point in time posted about how you had a few of your forums buddys logging in but whatever, you can claim that you dont share your password. I guess you also dont have the log ins to several accounts and/or the ability to log into other peoples accounts.

lololol... how convenient that you couldn't nominate someone else 😉

anyway, same old faces, new month, no shocker here.

and lol@GAMA's sarcastic comments about Inwegen. I literally loled. It took me a second to get that they were not being serious haha. 😛

Pfeiffer, Israel, not much difference, I thought of lulz electing fluffy, but I don't want to give them the satisfaction.

scsaby for Prez!

Uschmidt Day 1,750, 22:18

I will never vote for a candidate who wants to give away our bonuses!

vasspana Day 1,751, 00:20

a Manchester boy like "Inwegen" can't be more American that I'm......
