Join the new world



Day 1,923, 10:13 Published in USA USA by Jefferson Locke

First and Foremost, as this is the most important thing: If you can, please move to whichever party is number five in the nation, either the AMP, USWP, or WTP. We have to keep the Shoe party out of the top five.

My fellow Americans,

I come to you today to talk about something that I have been thinking about for a while now. There is something that has been sweeping through America over the past few months, a movement of sort. We have seen a new generation of player come through Erep over the last few months. Motivated and refusing to be told no, they have entered our government with fresh ideas and perspective, and a commitment to the principle of country before self. They have shown an amazing drive and work ethic, and have provided us with a breath of fresh air. They have learned from the older players, and used that knowledge to expand ideas without being held back by previous grudges. Simply put: The new generation is here, and they will not be denied.

This is not to devalue the older generation. We need them as well. Their knowledge is irreplaceable, and they will always be needed. We need them as a nation to help mentor this new generation of player so that they are prepared to lead us into the future. There has to be a mixture of new and old working together for what is best for this nation. If there isn’t, we cannot reach our full potential.

With that said, I would like to be the one to usher in the new generation. I would like to be the one that starts us down the road to the future. I would like to help this nation reach it’s full potential. I would like to be this great nation’s next Country President.

I am hereby announcing my candidacy for Country President. I know that there will be questions about experience, so allow me to address that. I have served in the national government for the past three month, first as dept. CoS under Inwegen, then as Chief of Staff under Fingerguns, and I am currently the Vice President under John Killah. I have also been the Fed Vice Party President twice under Duncan Crowe and once under BigCDizzle. I served as retention director under Paul Proteus. These jobs have given me a wide range of knowledge and have allowed me to see what goes on at both the national and party levels, helping me better serve all of you. I have worked with a wide range of groups and opinions, and have learned to respect them all. I believe that diversity is a wonderful thing, and serving in a wide range of capacities has strengthened that belief.

Here is what I can promise you if I am elected:
1.) I will work night and day for you. I’m sure you all know that I basically live on Erep, and I have actually cleared more time off my schedule for this endeavor. I will always be able to be found.
2.) I will make sure that all of you are kept up to date on what the government is working on. I have done this as VP this month, and I plan to do it even more as your President. And I say YOUR President, because that is what I will be.
3.) I promise you that we will have fun this month. There will be some awesome things happening, as I will outline in my future articles. It will not be “more of the same”.
4): I will listen to you. We may not agree, but your voice will be heard and given merit. I will not dismiss your opinions, as I feel it is the job of the President to give you a plan and work with you (not despite you) to accomplish it.

And now I present to you my Vice President and Chief of Staff:

Vice President Artela...

What can I say about her that hasn’t already been said? She is one of the greats. She has a track record of getting things done. I said above that there has to be balance in order to reach our fullest potential as a nation between the new generation and the older players, and this is putting my money where my mouth is. I don’t know of too many people that have the knowledge of the game that she does. She will be included in everything, and will serve this office well. When going into an endeavor such as this, it is important to go into it with the best. She exceeds that.

Chief of Staff Dr Luis.......

I would view him as the crossroads of the new generation and the old players. He has had many jobs, and is currently serving as AMP PP. He has experience in leading diverse teams to reach common goals, which is exactly what you want as a CoS. Dr Luis’s work ethic is amazing, and his dedication to this country is second to none. He is someone that I have great faith in, and I know that he will make this nation proud.

There you have it, this is probably already tl;dr. I love this nation, and I want to help this country maximize it’s potential. We as a nation are poised for greatness, and we will no longer allow anything to hold us back. America deserves the best, and I plan on delivering that in the coming month with your help. We are America, and we will triumph over all threats, international and domestic.

Together we’re invincible.

Your’s forever in Service,
Jefferson Locke

But good luck though, Jefferson!

Artela Day 1,923, 14:41

I do only have one care, and that's making sure the eUSA gets the best PotUS choice it can with good support behind them. JLo is, in my view, that candidate, and he will have the best support I can provide. Now isn't a time for petty party politics, it's a time for unity in the face of the ever present threat we have these days.

Zoli Day 1,923, 13:32

Operation Gangman Style is a failure. Being VP how much blame do you assume for this? If you were not able to do it as VP, why should I think you would be able to do it as CP?

fingerguns Day 1,924, 05:51

Zoli, from this post should I assume that if you are a failure as President, you will blame your staff for not usurping you?

Zoli Day 1,924, 11:53

So from this post I assume you have failed and John Killah failed even harder

fingerguns Day 1,924, 12:24

Interesting assumption.

JyM23 Day 1,923, 20:42

Voted, good luck! I hope it turns into a good race this month and a lot of status quo issues get brought up and debated. I think there's room to re-evaluate/change a few things, let's see what people think.

1. CP stuff should wait until after congressional elections imo.

2. Zoli/ MMF3 for CP.... either would be awesome.

SinaAria Day 1,924, 07:11

doubt max would be interested in office right now. running for congress. But he would be awesome.

Tiamati Day 1,924, 02:17

Sorry young eAmerican; your political experience being tethered to the recent unpopular FG/ Killah Administrations is insufficient experience for the office you seek. Futher, you are candidly too weak to make an effective PotUS given the recent setbacks / lack of direction prevalent within the current eAmerican political climate.

Since you're too young to know, there used to be an old joke about PotUS elections really being to decide whom would be VP.. it is interesting to see your apparent campaign utilizing that archaic tactic. While the timing of this 'cycle-jumping' announcement is certainly 'new wave'

IF your campaign truly extolled the virtue of 'new blood' DLS would have been a better and more believable choice as VP; instead you've chosen one of the oldest eAmericans whom recently engaged in questionably inappropriate involvement within the RL political sphere despite lacking not only her better judgement but also the bare requirement of a green card from my understanding...

Further, the implementation of Unity protocol at this early stage of PotUS campaigning is trite and predatory by glaringly-evident design.

Protip: Only those who have attained "Senpai" status are worthy of PotUS; given all I've mentioned above you remain "Kohai"

Magnanimous Day 1,924, 02:18

Have my vote kind sir.

fingerguns Day 1,924, 05:53

This will be a good race. I'm glad you decided to go for it, JLo!
