Kurgan for President

Day 2,069, 13:47 Published in Ireland Ireland by Death and Taxes

People will be surprised by this least until I explain it.

First we might need an introduction. I am Death & Taxes, also known as Malbekh, and up until 8 months ago I was a relatively well known RL and CGI citizen of Ireland. I can't say I achieved an awful lot while I was around, belated Quartermaster for the inaugural Boot Camp, MoD as a last desperate measure during one of MUFC's reigns, and a constant on the battlefield.

I don't think anyone bar the most moronic would say anything less than I am honest to a fault and can be trusted to keep my word. It might be of historical interest to relive a few articles I posted before.

There's this one highlighting the danger of sawc shortly before he robbed 2m IEP

An update after the event:

My MoD review:

Why I am trustworthy and why people trust me with their money:

Kurgan will make a typically stupid slur and suggest that I've participated in or got monies from the two Irish robberies. Any subjective view of my strength training will show that I maxed out on training well before the robberies took place. The explanation is quite simple, I spend cash on the game. Not only that, but based on some excellent analysis by Sweet, I sold my Q7 weapons company at the right time before we went into meldtown and converted it to IEP.

So let's get down to an explanation of what this article is about. We are currently in a state of immense boredom in the game with no discernible exit strategy. Our leaders are doing a fantastic job with the crap cards they have been dealt with. Most people understand this, bar one muppet who has a select group of idiots or exceptionally naive simpletons that support him.

That individual is RTK Viktor Kurgan.

Kurgan is someone I readily despise. Not just because he's a useless parasite who has done nothing for his adopted country, or because he talks the talk but has never walked the walk, but primarily because there are aspects to his character that a lot us know to be uncomfortably unpleasant and abhorrent.

So I have a simple suggestion. Seeing as Kurgan can do nothing but criticise the government and its ministers, seeing as Kurgan knows more than the rest of us on how to run a country in eRepublik, seeing as Kurgan has expressed on innumerable occasions that he would unite the country and lead us to the promised land, let us give him an opportunity to prove his worth as CP.

I am hereby challenging Kurgan to run as CP, and I will support him. He needs to commit to a manifesto that backs up some of his outrageous claims. He will need to take full responsibility for the finances of the country, the political and military well-being of the country, and also implement strategies to improve our position in all aspects. After all, based on Kurgan's own comments, he can surely do a fantastic job based on the constant whining and criticism he extols on previous governments.

Who knows? Maybe he will do such a good job he can become CP for life.

I very much doubt it. I will add two provisos:

First, if Kurgan fails to nominate himself as CP, we can consider him to be a yellow craven coward and can therefore take nothing he says seriously any more.

Secondly, should he take the challenge and fail to implement a significant improvement in the well-being of our State, that he leaves the country in disgrace never to return.

Kurgan. It is time to shut up or put up.

The fact that you striked out through my name before you mentioned kurgan: let me say it now for the millionth time I am not Kurgan. Secondly he is an idiot because he criticizes the government? Also he critizises everyone but has no value. Dont you think any government need ppl critizising it. The more the better. His value is in providing critic and a different point of view. If you steal a pencil from an office it must be on the next days headline. Your whole article seems about a very superficial viewpoint of life. Its like so many US players that absolutely destroy ppl for speaking their minds and then claim they support still freedom of speech. please read the following article and see what freedom of speech is. I wanted to do an article about it but left it as it has too many issues

I do like the concept of an American mocking another persons use of English - I mean I like it for the sake of humour, but it is just a bit subtle for American humour - you should stick to the types that Americans excel at, you know, fart jokes & sodomy jokes.

Also your whole macho attitude of stand up or gtfo is so stupid i would say slightly stoopid but there is a great band with this name. In law enforcement they say a person that running away is a sign of guilt. You ran away its a sign of guilt . What did you do that you needed to ran away from our shores. Theft perhaps?

Also lets face it your just part of a chorus of ex Irishmen. Before you propose ppl for our CPand this goes for Grianne and Daghda as well GET BACK HERE OR STFO. I AM EFFIN TIRED OF EX PATS TRYING TO DICTATE FOR US WHAT WE SHOULD SAY FEEL AND DO. LIFE WITH YOUR CHOICES AND YOU STFO LOZER.

Take your homophobic little boy slurs and get out of the closet. Use cogent arguments to make a point, not petty typo'd insults.

People think you are Kurgan's multi because you hang on his ball hair at every turn. I have more respect for Kurgan then most, andI'm glad we have him in eIreland. I like Kurgan, but you never seem to doubt him. A lot of his rants are rooted in fact, but almost never 100% true. A little distance from him might give you perspective. Every nation has it's trolls, and Kurgan is one of our best. He is also a good historian of some of the worst offenses in our history, so people are held accountable when they try rise in power after they think their misdeeds are forgotten. You need to realize a portion of what he says is BS. A portion of what everyone says is BS... even me. Nobody has all the facts at their disposal for any situation. So we make best-guess conclusions and assume some of the connections that may or may not be entirely accurate. It's human nature.

we dont need daghda here as he is no longer a citizen. i . it is well known that he is gay.

Releasethe Krakken

also let me make just one thing very clear to you. I am not his parrot we agree on a lot of thing some things not 100% or at all. perhaps you should stop sitting on the fence and take a side. just like ibhoy and orangejuicemmm will sound alike so will whs and say raven anarcho.

Bhane Day 2,070, 10:47

I don't throw around petulant insults. That is not the same as ass kissing.

I have chosen a side... my own. I fight to make eIreland a better place in my own small way. I am not a member of any of eIreland's cliques. I am certainly no friend of the kunts, I do not follow ranks of the ILP crowd, I'm too young to be in with the origin oldfarts like Cas, I do not participate in the commune system of the IA leadership, etc.

I have had sociopolitical bouts with just about every faction in eireland. But, I manage to voice my disagreements with some decorum and courtesy (almost all of the time). If one has degraded into flimsy insults, then one has probably run out of tangible arguments. Keeping the dialogue respectful allows for real debate to fully explore a topic so the citizens can understand the intricacies of both sides, and decide for themselves. These arguments seem to have been enough to alienate me from being welcome to the inner circle of any of eIreland's cliques. But acting with integrity has earned me the respect of nearly all of them.

Even you have my respect, because I know your loyalty is to eIreland. I hope you can learn to respect that same patriotism in your foes, even while you bicker with them. Don't lower the discourse into insults, you can be better than that.

Viktor Kurgan
Viktor Kurgan Day 2,070, 18:16 supporting Conway is the biggest BS from you.
If he is really your friend then you should make him NOT betray ireland.
You should make him not abusing mike back then.
You should make him return the stolen money

You call my questions backed with facts and logic trolling?

And i am not a nature is far more sinister....

Bhane Day 2,070, 19:44

Vik, I defended Conway's claim of being an eIrish patriot, because that's where his loyalty lies. He's not working for the eBrits as you claim. I think Conway's relationship with some of the more villainous kunts has certainly tarnished his reputation through osmosis. He could've been one of the more beloved eirish patriots if he had not been part of some of their more notorious conspiracies. Through all his good times and bad, he has always shown that he holds eireland more dear in his heart than any other country. I can't force him to do anything, I have no authority over him.

Just because you troll people does not define EVERYTHING you say as trolling. I do not say that your use of facts is trolling. Those parts of your articles and comments are fine. You know they are interspersed with troll remarks, too. It's a colorful mix that I find very entertaining, while being somewhat informative. I did not paint you with a wide brush as just another troll, we are all shades of grey. I said a lot of your statements are rooted in facts, even if you take some of those facts to a bit of conjecture. I have been guilty of doing exactly the same thing.

I concede that you have your own nature, Kurgan. And I'm glad that nature is in this country. eireland needs your voice, even if others may not like hearing it from time to time. Especially when it is aimed at them. You can target me anytime, Kurgan, I can take it.

I've created a party seeing as Herr Kurgan is non-affiliated. Let's get it into the top 5 to give the man who knows everything about good governance a chance.

Bhane Day 2,070, 07:53

Dear god, why did you add to the party clutter? If Kurgan wants to run, a party will allow him the opportunity. You wasted 40g and just added to the cluster that will only drain people from parties that have a potential voice.

If I had my way, eIreland would have only 5 parties. Anyone with a new concept would run in one of the lassaiz faire parties with a platform of re-branding their sociopolitical identity. If it's an idea that has support, then the citizens will migrate to and from it.

Dear admins: Please put a block on "create new party" in eIreland. It only hurts our community.

I have seen it happen where a person is successful in becoming president but his term is turned to garbage because it has been sabotaged by those who want him to fail - A president is just one person, he needs an administration with similar views & is prepared to support him.
You are being disingenuous Death & Taxes, you are setting Kurgan up to run & fail.
