This month the election for President has been especially amusing. Haliman has finally done what everyone with a brain has been waiting for since he reformed the AMP, declared for President. Glove decided to pop up out of nowhere and run on a platform of 'look at the pretty article', and then there is the third option.
Before I get to this person, I'm going to pose a question to you:
What do you want from the President?
Do you want to be amused, do you want someone who is competent and won't make any of the obvious mistakes we've seen in months past, or are you one of those few, those happy few, who want to watch it burn?
I'll admit, at times I've fallen into that third camp. It's easily the most attractive as it takes the burden of having to try off of your shoulders, and you can simply laugh about how amusing everything is. If you fall into this camp, vote for Glove. His uninterested attitude and penchant for lolwhynot will most assuredly cause some interesting results, probably another wipe of the US.
If you fall in to the first group (yea, I'm skipping around, bite me) and simply want someone to distract you with shiny things while other people do the real work...well, Emerick isn't running, so vote for Glove.
If you're in that middle camp, as I am, and you want someone who is not only able to do the job of President, is willing to put up with the headaches of foreign leaders who are uncooperative (and those at home who can't help but be obstructionist), and do it with a smile (this is where I stop being this group's candidate, methinks)...then you only have one choice.
You must vote for Oblige.
His work in Defense, Foreign Affairs, in positions of leadership in our Alliance, Terra, his willingness to work with anyone, and the fact that he actually understands what little strategy is left in the game, makes Oblige the only logical choice for those people looking for a competent President who will do everything they can to prevent another wipe.
Something I think a few of you have noticed, and I can not stress enough, is that Haliman doesn't appear to fall in to any of these groups. Why is that? Haliman was the single worst President in US history. When it's time for me to retire from politics (yes, that day will come), I'll publish my personal best/worst list and give ample reasons why he was such a failure. Essentially, he managed to do two things which I didn't think anyone could do. He was both never online, and somehow managed to still make horrible decisions. How someone could be AFK and convey his desire to do everything wrong to the active cabinet members he managed to have, I'll never fully understand.
I've tried to be as un-biased as possible in this article, which isn't easy as I was the one to approach Oblige to run this month. I hope you'll take some of what I've said under consideration, but if you don't, you don't. Hell, if Haliman wins I'll just have to migrate back to that third group...at which point you're all f***ed anyway.
Praise Dio, every day.
Today just feels like a Mila Kunis day
