How to become a legitimate party

1,915 jour, 10:41 Published in USA États-Unis de ligtreb

The events of yesterday show how quickly things can change in this country.

It was only a little over a month ago that our friends at the Friendship and Honor Party (FsH) were aligned with American Freedom Alliance (AFA), the party that is trying to Politically Take Over (PTO) this country and works against American interests.

The FsH party saw which side was the honorable side, broke off and aligned itself with the legitimate American system. The FsH had congressmen elected a few weeks ago on the USWP and Federalist ballots, quickly becoming a part of the real American society.

Yesterday, the AFA and Ronald Gipper Reagan tried to seek revenge in a PTO attempt on the FsH party. All of the major, legitimate parties in this country sent help the keep the FsH in friendly hands, a move that would've been unthinkable only two election cycles ago. Because of our efforts, the FsH is in friendly hands.

I got a ton of feedback about my article a few days ago, which showed a clear example of how the AFA was hurting this country, and was asked one very interesting question:

What would it take for the AFA to be recognized as a legitimate party and not a PTO threat?

There are two ways I can see, one obvious and one that will take more work.

The obvious way is what I described above: Leave the AFA and either join an established party or make your own party like the FsH did. The FsH had people in Congress in an under a month of leaving the AFA, a fact that might be more amazing when you realize the leadership of the FsH aren't even real-life Americans. They're mostly Romanian, based on their avatars and articles. FsH was accepted into American society because they worked within the system, something the AFA has not done.

I know there are some good people in the AFA, I've met some of them. I also know many of you aren't Americans in real life, but that's not the reason you're looked down upon. At least three former Presidents of this country were not real-life Americans and dozens of congressmen and military leaders have been from other countries in real life. In this game, just like in the real USA, we are a country of immigrants. As long as you work within our system, you will be accepted.

The AFA will have to change dramatically to be accepted as legitimate

I do not represent the government, congress or the country when I write this. This is not a binding proposal, just something I've thought a lot about.

That being said, I would be willing to consider the AFA as a legitimate party if the following happens for a minimum of three consecutive election cycles:

1. Congressmen elected by the AFA must only accept citizenship requests approved by the IES (Immigration Enforcement Service). The main reason the AFA has become as large as it has is the constant accepting of citizenship requests of people from enemy countries. This has to stop for any chance at being considered legitimate, and is non-negotiable.

2. The AFA must stop trying to PTO other parties on the 15th each month. Last month, the AFA had a plant in every major party and heavily targeted the USWP. Yesterday, the AFA tried to PTO the FsH, as I described above. This must stop and is non-negotiable.

3. The AFA must stop moving a smaller party under its control into the top 5 right before Congressional elections to knock one of the major parties out. For the newbs who don't know how Congress elections work, only the Top 5 parties by membership are allowed to run candidates for Congress. In each of the last few months I've been here, the AFA has tried to move its members to a PTO-ed party to replace one of our major parties on the ballot. This must end and is also non-negotiable if the AFA were to become a legitimate party.

4. Party leadership must be replaced. I've never had a problem with every single member of the AFA, the leadership of the party has always been my target. Based on their actions over the last few months, Americans will never accept a party led by Ronald Gipper Reagan, Viarizi, Hainbal LA, Sidarta or k1tho. All of those members have long histories of working against this country's best interests. For the AFA to be considered a legitimate American party, new leadership must take over. This is also non-negotiable.

If those four conditions are met for multiple election cycles, I would accept the AFA into our society as a legitimate party. And I know Americans would unite to help you, like we did for the Friendship and Honor (FsH) party yesterday.

Becoming a legitimate party is possible, but work must be done.

Good article, nice effort yesterday and on behalf of FsH I say Thanks to the eUSA society that proved AFA that they are a huge failure, lead by 2 big cry-babies, Hanibal and RGR/Ajay/Pizza...

Excellent article as always Liggy! Much respect, and I agree with your points above. The path to becoming a legitimate party starts with acting like one

Good article, V+Shout

Mercurius100 1,915 jour, 11:05

What was done yesterday was really great. FsH has set an example for not just immigrants but for all eUS parties on what you can do in eUS politics with commitment and lots of hard work. They inspire me to work to do better, and I hope they will continue to do well going forward.

SantaAndrei 1,915 jour, 13:30

Thank you, we will prove ourselves more and more, but we couldn't have succeeded without the true americans.

lame response. if you would stop posting/commenting for a month the popularity of the afa would rise. but you just cant shut up.

Trying to draw attention away from how terrible you are from the AFA's image. Imagine that.

Voted. The bottom line seems pretty clear to m... the AFA is not going away. That's a fool's dream. The difficult, important work is going to be working with those in the AFA interested in change to bridge the gap between them and the core eUSA player base. This might be possible.

Long live AFA \o/

FSH did huge mistake, but that;s their problem. What they dont realize is that you guys dont lvoe them cuz they are what they are, but cuz they hate and fight AFA.

Enemy of my enemy is my friend. Thats all.

So is that why you joined the USWP? Friends?

Tiamati 1,915 jour, 15:33

Almost Correct; their choice to become autonomous is their birthright as sentient beings.

The Enemy of my Enemy is my friend sentiment is also almost accurate; more accurately it would be 'The Enemy of my Oldest Enemies was always their Enemy and yet still remains my friend.

Alas, the only way all this double-talk can be invalidated would be with an eGlobal Exodus enacted concurrently with an International repatriation effort of an even larger scale.

All the above stated; perhaps moving tickets have more than sentimental value after all....

Also, LoL at you making ultimatums. We are a legitimate party.

We don't have to play by your rules.

and yes, great idea, let's replace our entire leadership structure, so the party is disorganized. Thank you for your sound advice!

So you are implying that without you four your party would fall apart, because the rest of them can't handle it? I would be insulted if I were them.

Saying how great Ligtreb's articles are is redundant, still going to say it anyways, great article~

Archfeldspar 1,915 jour, 20:23

I agree totally about hostile political takeovers, overt or covert.

However, the concept of accepting FsH, who you have termed eRomanian in their place just because they set up a separate party seems to be a non sequitur. Why? ePlato said in an interview that: "~50% of the paid staff", hence why are these people any better to allow in your politics than the AFA?. Tapeworms grow slowly.

Candor 1,915 jour, 20:26

The 2nd and 3rd points seem reasonable to getting along. Though many people and parties have made attempts at PTO's of other parties over the years, and that's just lulz as much as anything. Doesn't mean the agressor people/party are un-American (recall many SEES PTO's, fun stuff, and once when Cromstar tried to PTO SEES. etc etc).

4th point is logical from Unity perspective. But ofc any party/people have the right to choose their own leadership. But equally, anyone is free to dislike anyone else, and choose not to play with them.

1st point I'll never agree with. Cits belong to Congressmen. How they are used is up to the Congressmen, as influenced by their party, and lastly by a unified government, whomever that is. And imo, maximizing ALL available cits is good for the nation. And atm only AFA is doing so. Kudo's to them for doing so. Everyone else should as well and AFA's cits wouldn't much matter to the balance of power.

one thing ligtreb, should the AFA be gone, I think we would find somebody else to to pick on. It's in our culture here.

The AFA is really helping on one side however, everyone who is not with them is automaticly a bonafied participant of our society.

But before the AFA was a threat... I remember that time. And a lot of people hated the fact that forigs were in the country and had a party of their own.

As always, a brilliant plan from our own Elder Statesman, Ligtreb, about how to solve this, if the parties really want it solved.

I've heard Ligtreb being criticized as being "too nice".


Ligtreb is diplomatic almost to a fault. But he has an incisive, quick mind, and a great spirit. He will give anyone the benefit of the doubt. But he has a strong will to match his intellect. He just drew the line in the sand.

I agree with everything he said. (That is rare for me in this game).

These items are NOT negotiable. Every single one of them goes to the eUS either being a Free Ecountry, or being a puppet country ruled by Ajay Bruno and "friends".

btw, how is it that Ligtreb has never been President of the eUSA?

John Killah
John Killah 1,916 jour, 06:30

Maybe he's one of those rare kind who's happy to not be president? I could see that as the truth.

Tyrannocopters 1,916 jour, 03:51

ligtreb, I have a very serious question... what is your opinion on the new cat Monopoly peice?

Ruminantus 1,916 jour, 04:03


Supernana 1,916 jour, 04:04

On the 4 points mentionned I can agree without any problems on points 2 to 4. But the fisrt point, giving CS,is a feature giving by the games rules to the indivudual congressman. He, and he alone, should decide whom he will give CS. If the congressman wants to abide by the rules the gov is fixing that's fine. But he shoudt also be able to just give it to whomever he wants and not be judged for this.
