What's up eAmerica. No really. Read it here.

The President and his folks are working on two things as I see it. First, this new DHS. And so far what I see from that is the gathering of an expanded list of persona-non-grata.

In my opinion it’s a mostly useless feel good pro-active thing to do.

I can tell you what the AFA is doing most any given day, just ask me. They aren’t shy about sharing, and they honestly aren’t doing anything much different than every other party in the country, they’re trying to grow.

Why are they trying to grow? Well the same as every other party, they want more Congressmen, and eventually I'm sure they'd like to have their own party guy win the Presidency.

What would they do with a majority of Congressmen or the Presidency? I don't know the answer to that. Maybe all our spies can tell us. My guess is we might see a shift in some alliances, and a lot of people would lose their fancy titles and comfy chairs. Maybe they'll run off with the Treasury.

All terrible stuff.

Size is power. How they are growing isn’t a secret either, they’re importing people from other nations, and they’re recruiting noobs, which is fairly easy to do when you hold the top spot. The USWP did it for a long time without much effort at all.

A list of AFA people is quite nice and all, but it doesn’t do much aside from creating a lot of bureaucratic work for an energetic bunch of folks in DHS. Have at it, I guess.

We already know their sheer number, and rate of growth. And the game is simple math.

What they (DHS) have shown me no evidence of thus far is an organized ATO/PTO system, which, if done right, could be an offensive weapon of considerable power against any domestic enemy.

Part one, put together a recruting and education campaign. Teach the nation to become mobile voters, and to look each election for official announcements.

Second, organize a group of snipe votes. If I can gather 40 in three weeks, the government should have no problem gathering 150 in a month.

Third, learn some strategy. Snipes don't just attack, they also create fakes, which draw a bigger defensive response from your enemy than the offensive to follow.

Lastly, think long term. Holding every party each election isn't always the best strategy, all strategies inclusive.

I’d hope DHS would put together such a weapon, but equally I hope they’d learn the finesse of utilizing it in ways that multiplied its effects.

Three months in a row I've seen poor ATO/PTO leadership and/or planning. I love my team, but come on guys, this is old school stuff.

Secondly, and in my estimation Cerb’s most likely area of greatest interest, as it always is with Presidents, the President is working to create a new alliance with a new fancy name.

President’s like to create international alliances with new fancy names, because they are something concrete that will outlive their terms, and they become attached to historically. And hey, we need friends of course.

If Cerb succeeds, I expect to hear the announcement of this new alliance in the next week or so. If he fails to get it done in his term, I expect that he and his chosen successor will make something of a co-announcement, and we’ll be told this chosen successor is just the man to finish up the details. Hey, I'd use that too, no crime in the ploy.

So goes eRepublik and eAmerican politics.

No magic, no inside knowledge. Anyone think this will go down differently?

Cerb is a good guy. I’ve seen how he deals with things, and I respect his thoughtful and calm personality.

But I'm looking at the calendar. I’m not optimistic that any quality alliance can be finalized in the time remaining, not this term.

So next month then.

UPDATE: As predicted, here you go, three days after this was written: New Bromance

By the way, here's some great allies camping with us atm, give 'em a hug, they're really a great group of guys.

Last thing to share:

Those of you who want to run for President for December: This is the week to announce, no later than the end of this Thanksgiving Weekend.

Oh yes, I know we have those boring Congressional’s Sunday. But they’re perfunctory now anyway. With Unity Elections, your POTUS campaign best be running by the end of this week.

I know a half dozen teams planning to run, you'll be left behind if you don't have your shite together by the end of this week, when most teams will be announcing.

John Jay announced his candidacy for President today, starting the list of declared candidates.

Dutifully Submitted,

Help us help you eAmerica. Join us

We welcome our loyalist international allies as well: Albanians, the Brazillians, Finns. And more. If you are here, and looking for a home with a voice, the WTP is the place for you.

Imo it wouldn't be a bad idea to run alliance ideas across the general population before moving too far along with them.

Candor Dan 1,826, 23:10

^^^ Well they did that with CTRL really, talked about it for 6-7 weeks before it was finalized, only to fall apart a week later. They're rushing at this point to get the rough list together, which is what they'll be sharing in the next 8 days, imo, at which time we'll be told it's X's great plan so he should be POTUS next month to wrap it all up.

IMO, we should remain independent...being in an Alliance just ties our hands....

Waruda Dan 1,826, 03:44

This is how I always saw Alliances. If FA or PR work needs to be done you should embrace these Countries instead of highlighting the occasional. Another thing to do is not take egov4you statistics as true bearings. In V1 Alliances were far more static and "Global". If WW5 taught us anything it is that Alliances once formed in name, take on lasting social realities, due to Regional necessities involved in Capital Supply lines.

Waruda Dan 1,826, 03:44

Short: Evry was right.

DHS is making great progress, but it requires a lot of manpower and effort. It's far from a 'feel-good' measure, but I suppose it's easy to criticize from the outside looking in. As I've stated elsewhere, DHS announcements to the public are imminent.

Candor Dan 1,826, 11:29

I can only report what I see Cerb, that's true. And I can only opine on what I see, or what I am lacking seeing. I'm glad there's more to come.

I believe collecting/reporting is a huge waste of manhours for any potential (and minimal) gain, and I proposed what I believed a better use of time and resources.

The spy game is loads of fun (and you can make it loads of work) but the AFA isn't a complicated organization. You'll be playing the game, and expending energy, mostly unproductively.

You proposed sniping when there are no states anymore. There is no sniping to be done. I understand you're suggesting a 2009-era voter force, but the USAF follows orders and votes as needed, when needed. It seems redundant to put them on a special voter list.

I understand this was speculation on your part, but I am not making a new secret super-alliance. My foreign policy is more of an open-door policy reinforcing relationships with current friends. I know that several nations are pushing for a TERRA sequel or some sort of weird fringe-EDEN alliance. However, I don't believe in creating an alliance just to be making one.

Candor Dan 1,826, 12:29

Dropping 150 votes on AFA at reset last election would have halfed their strength for Congressionals. They couldn't move 700 voters in that time, and every 40 left behind would have been one less Congressman.

Instead, 100's of votes were wasted in the other T4's Cerb.

Those telling you that such an organized force hasn't any value any longer are very, very wrong.

Candor Dan 1,826, 12:32

And they do indeed need to be snipe, in that they drop in the last minutes. AF votes throughout the day can be countered. Snipes can not.

I have been gathering members for a meta alliance to sell damage to the highest bidder to offset loses caused by the lack of bonuses our past and present leaders have lost for us.

If anyone is interested in joining this alliance please PM me. I don't care what your political beliefs are or what country you serve. This will be used as a tool to solicit cooperation from the US government buy turning critical allied battles in the favor of the enemy until the us government brings back bonuses
