Interlopers Not Welcome!

Day 2,222, 19:18 Published in Canada Spain by JonathonEdwards

Dear Claire Louise,

I do not know you.
You have never met me, and it is possible you've never seen my name in this game.
I don't know if I like you.
I don't know if you'd be a good CP for eCanada.
I don't know if you are simply some attention-seeking rascal.
I don't know if you just want to add a medal to your player profile.
I don't know if you would be trustworthy in a position of influence in eCanada.
I don't know whose best interests you have at heart - yours or eCanada's.

Simply put, when it comes to you, there is just simply too much I don't know.

And even if I knew the answers to these questions, and liked the answers to the questions, I still would not vote for you in the January CP elections.

Why? Because like much of eCanada, we don't like Interlopers.

Just go ask DMV. No matter how hard he tried, or how good his words were, or how good his programs were, eCanada (rightly or wrongly) found suspicious motives to everything he did. No rock was left unturned, and no stone unmoved, and even when nothing was discovered, something was always found.

We in eCanada just do not like those who parachute in, who have not been part of our community, and earned our friendship and trust. You see, we want people who have worked with us, walked among us, and suffered alongside us, to be our leaders. We want you to earn your stars and strips, so to speak, with us.

Not with some other community of people. As far as your credibility goes in eCanada, it is zero. As soon as you gained your eCanadian citizenship, your credibility in our eyes became an instant zero - because your time with us was zero. It doesn't matter what you accomplished in another nation, who you were friends with, what heroic deeds you did. It just doesn't matter.

Maybe in 3 or 4 months time I might find you an honourable candidate, worthy of my vote.

But until you have shed the image of Interloper, and gained one of an eCanadian, only then will our community accept you as one of us, and only then will you receive the proper consideration needed to win the office of CP.

For now, you are an Interloper, and you are not welcomed to participate in our CP elections in January.

Jonathon Edwards.

No interlopers

Hat Parper could be considered one when he was elected, but we were united against an outer enemy, hence why no one cared. He was good, worked hard, and earned his stripes, but doing that at a time of peace, no way! Stay away from my maple bacon you toothless b**tard!!!

I had been a Canadian citizen for about 7 months before I ran for CP 😛

Chochi Day 2,223, 10:20

Exactly! 7 months? I'm waiting until I've been here 7 years before I make my run.

MCMXCIlI Day 2,224, 23:57

You really think erep will still be around by then?

Wait, I'm not sure what message you're trying to get across here...but I think it has to do with interlopers

Well, I've been in Canada for roughly 6 weeks now, so new to the country isn't technically right. I haven't been involved in much because quite frankly, this game is boring. This country is boring. It needs a serious kick up the arse, and quick.

Me listing my previous "achievements" was to show people that I'm a damned hard worker, when there is something to work for. Providing nothing gets in the way, there will be more articles released detailing what I will be aiming to achieve within Canada. Hopefully, that may change your opinion on me. Might not make you vote, but it might just change your opinion. And then you might just see I'm not someone who is here for the 'lulz' or the gold. If I needed the gold, I'd go ahead and complete another Freedom Fighter. I have 16 already.

FYI, the first article was asking for backing from my party. If I don't get it - oh well. At least one other party has said that they would like to back me, so I'm not too worried. Either way I'll stick to my guns, outline what I want to do, and if nobody gives a sh*t, then oh well. I'll just find something else in this poxy game to occupy my time 😃

Claire Louise Day 2,223, 02:17

Oh, and it shouldn't matter in which nation my 'achievements' come from - fact is I helped mould two government departments that were dead and buried and served no purpose at the time other than to use up more money than they should have. I turned them both into something incredibly successful, something that without a doubt retained new players and fully introduced them into the game. I held very large amounts of money during that time and not a single penny (or cent, if you prefer) was unaccounted for.

Running those departments wasn't really in my own interests - I had to send out messages every day, supply an active military unit, supply those who had signed up to the JDS, note down absolutely all of my outgoings...hey, I was even doing this sh*t when I was lying in a hospital bed having had a serious operation. Oh yeah, I had responsibilities, the first thing I did when I was wheeled up to my room, drugged up to my eyeballs off morphine, was to come on here and deal with the two departments I was running. Not exactly in my interests.

And if you are worried about a PTO or me being here for 'lulz'...I was 'born' in the eUK, left there and went over to Aus, which is where all my government experience came from. They gave me a shot, and I did more good than the majority of their own citizens put together...sometimes, an outsider is a good thing 😉

Well Its a shame that democracy got in the way and allowed these dirty foreigners to run eh? Or allowed them into your country in real life. DAMN THEM!

Its a game, only difference between you and her is that her profile was created in a different country. if she deleted her account and re-started as an eCanadian then by your logic that would be fine despite being the same person...Its logic like that which keeps eCanada down while other countries like the eUK welcome ''foreign'' players and has elected them CP. This in turn made them stronger and gave them more influence.

Still weren't you the guy dead opposed to the liberation against eSpain that actually was a success and allowed Canada to have her regions back?

How's having eCanada's best interests at heart working out for you?

Chochi Day 2,223, 10:23

Game mechanics 😕= democracy.

Also newcomers can't vote in RL Canada until they've been in the country for at least three years.

Yeah and there is an age limit unlike this game, hence why it is a game 😉

Chochi Day 2,223, 11:24

There's supposed to be a minimum age for this game too yet we see a lot of people acting like children. 😛

Pat Harper Day 2,223, 06:00

ic what you mean but Claire isn't a radical player like DMV, I believe she would do a good job but hey, I will only run her for CCP if the party choose to have her on the ballot, personally I'm so bored I would do anything for some entertainment

Pat Harper
Pat Harper Day 2,223, 06:03

P.S I think this article is rude, try changing tack next time, you make the country very ill-looking for non-RL canadians who look to join. I'm surprised it came from you, I thought you were better than that

To be honest that was the vibe I got

JonathonEdwards Day 2,223, 09:12

And this comes from someone who tries to preempt the government's goals, frustrate it by making proposals in direct opposition to its plans.

Pat Harper
Pat Harper Day 2,223, 14:07

It comes from an experienced player who has done more for Canada than you could ever dream of doing.
And what plans? We are kept in the dark so much I am not aware? I'm trying to wake the government into doing something.

JonathonEdwards Day 2,223, 22:38

It's all in CDC. Should have asked someone with access to brief you on it.

Pat Harper
Pat Harper Day 2,224, 00:00

It's not my job, it should have been done by the government anyway, shows how incompetent they are..

Saradinus Day 2,223, 07:19

Dear JonathonEdwards
4 parties are going to support Claire Louise. Maybe 5 if MDP joins the party.
You cannot do anything to stop it, she'll be elected.
