Many Thanks, America

Day 2,448, 08:44 Published in USA USA by irule777

Over the course of this campaign I had an absolutely wonderful time. Most of my queries, messages, and discussions were filled with either brilliant feedback or incredible support. Overall the campaign made some mistakes, but I also think we did a good job running a campaign on some good ideas, and I’m genuinely excited to see President DMJ kick some butt in his domestic affairs next month. I wish him the best of luck in another term that will surely be a good one.

As it is the 3rd and I was not nominated by any party (though I won the BSP, if I’m correct) I will not be on the ballot. I don’t mind, being honest, as it was clear DMJ was heading for a re-election win after the primaries began and I was well behind. We expected it to be a tough race where I could bring out some ideas and would likely still ultimately lose, and that’s more than alright. Sometimes it’s about getting out your ideas, talking about issues that matter to you, and enjoying the ride.

I want to personally thank everyone who helped out on the campaign and everyone who bothered to read through my entire set of articles. I had some brilliant people helping me out and I thoroughly enjoyed working with many of you. A special thanks to my Vice President, Melissa Rose, who was incredibly helpful and was, as always, a wonderful woman to work with. Melissa is such a nice person and I was thrilled when she accepted my offer to be my VP. Hopefully she makes it to that spot or higher one day soon.

I’m planning to stay relatively involved over the next few months where I can and look forward to helping out where people need me. I hope whether you liked me or not, you enjoyed the campaign we tried to run. Unfortunately we ran into plenty of issues, and there are certainly lots of things I wouldn’t do should I ever run again or would change. It was a great learning experience for sure, and whether you supported us or not, I hope you enjoyed the overall campaign.

Thank you for a wonderful week and a half, thank you for listening, and thank you America. Congratulations to President DMJ, he’s an awesome guy who I had a great time debating and am more than happy to lose to. Good luck next month, Mr. President.

Thanks for reaching out to some of us peons. You seemed to be making a lot of good moves. But, like you said; DMJ had done well. The odds were in his favor.

Classy to say the least, Hopefully some of your ideas will be going forward even with a different administration.

Also sorry to see you go. Hopefully others will also see the importance and great need for more and more active retention programs. Especially for our newest players.

You had a good run, sir. I don't think it's over yet - maybe for this term, but not for the future.

DMJ is a tough contender. He's had the hearts of the American people for a while now. Mad respect for standing tall against him.

As we have seen from recent previous candidates, it takes a lot to screw up a second run for office. It's a proven, and highly reproducible psychological effect that people would prefer a slight negative choice over an unknown. DMJ has done a hell of a job in office, and has shown outstanding results as the PoTUS To win out over him, you would have had to really knock it out of the park.

You have a great set of ideals, irule; and I think that eUSA could benefit greatly with you behind the wheel. I would really hate for this to be your last run.

Don't let this be your exit, but your entrance into next month's campaign. Take what you learned, and come back twice as hot!

Excellent campaign, I'm sorry to see it come to an end. I hope you'll be back next month.

Thank you for the clean campaign irule777. It was nice to have a presidential race that didn't turn into yet another rematch of the "elitist"-"alternative elitist" split. I think you are a hardworking player, and one day we might see you as POTUS.
