Thanks for nominating! A 3-horse race is exciting - I can't remember the last one. Smile


Your article and pitch is quite aggressive and FA heavy. Personally, I think you make some good points about the eUSA being risk averse and the climate around fear of failure. Isn't the risk appetite of the country determined by Congress though? Even the most loved CP wouldn't get a 66% majority vote to NE something with a high risk. What arguments can you make that might convince Congress to change their adopted risk profile?


You want to build friendships. With who?


Pacifica needs...something. You've acknowledged as such in your article. What is that something?


Some more traditional and less specific questions for you too:
- What's your position on the dictator law?
- What do you think of recent efforts by the eUS community to pass blacklists and implement censures against SFP members "just because"?
- Who's in your cabinet to take charge of this aggressive FA agenda?

Congress is representative of the nation, and it is indeed risk-averse. Congress does need to pass anything I would propose to accomplish on the battlefield, yes. However, it isn't that congress won't pass an NE that may be risky. They won't pass an NE that seems set up for failure.

Congress isn't stupid, usually. They will gladly support a plan that looks like it has a great chance for success, whether it is risky or not. I will give them such a plan, and expect passage of it. Being in Congress for 32 terms, working with people of all parties, including SFP and the Black Sheep, I know how to get things done in Congress.

-----

As for building friendships, we have to know who our enemies are. Our enemies are currently those that camp themselves with the likes of FYROM and Bulgaria. Those are our main foes on the battlefield. Despite what I've heard of Bulgaria thinking of softening their stance on us, I do not intend to change our stance on them. If those are our enemies, then who can we reach our to in new relationships?

The answer lies in the countries in Syndicate, who are opposed to the same nations that we are. For example, one country in particular which I would like to explore, is Italy. Italy has really come along as of late, and could make a great partner for us in Europe who aligns with our geopolitical interests.

-----

The something that Pacifica needs is cohesion, or even... purpose. As a "third way" alliance Pacifica is not very cohesive as each nation has it's own distinct policy towards other alliances. This is nice, but also detrimental. We do not have set goals or priorities, besides our collective defense. Just as well, I do not believe that our citizens feel connected to the citizens of other Pacifican countries.

By coordinating a larger alliance-wide operation, we can forge those bonds in ways that haven't been done recently. This will help to bring our alliance together, both in leadership and in the general citizenry.

-----

1.) I've never actually liked the dictator law. However, it is useful, especially in times of war. Without the dictatorship, our enemies can launch large battles that are more important than losing a simple region. In a war, it can drain a lot of resources from an airstrike or other important battle. We employed this strategy against FYROM once, draining damage via RW and CW. Having the dictatorship protects from tomfoolery, and keeps our damage directed on the areas that need it.

2.) It's extremely stupid, and I can't condone it. Props to Franklin though for abstaining to his blacklisting. I assume he was kinda hoping it would pass, lol.

3.) First off, I wouldn't really call it "aggressive" foreign policy. It's just sensible. I will not be sharing my staff ahead of article release, but I can tell you that my staff is experienced, produces consistently excellent work, and energized about working in the term to come.

So, you want to give MUs money through Congress. Legitimately they should provide damage in return.

Why not just set COs on all battles for US Citizens? Then you know the money is at least reaching the individual soldier.

MU's based in the United States already supply the bulk majority of our damage on the battlefield. The amount of help we get from our allies is actually quite sad, in comparison to our our enemies help each other at times. I cannot reasonably ask EZC, War Inc, BC, Black Sheep, etc.., to do more on the battlefield than they do now, no matter how great that would be.

What I can do, is ask those MU's to build programs to help citizens be the best soldiers that they can be, via assisted training, upgraded training grounds, etc.. CO's often do not provide the money to allow the average citizen to do this. Well funded and executed programs can.

For instance, someone like myself would need 100g to get a Q4 Training Ground. On any account, especially my older account that was not adequately resourced to be a great soldier account, that's a hard 425k USD. Getting that money through CO's and trading USD for gold for a month is not an option. The CO's are helping me to buy extra weapons, maybe building rockets, not making me a better soldier. Trying to upgrade accounts via CO funding is not viable for everyday citizens who have low-strength accounts.

EZC Soldiers like J Bug, Crimsonninja and Walter Harwell White would have to spend an absurd amount of time hoarding CO money to pay for full TG upgrades.

For the average citizens that can't afford to buy gold, programs to help build strength are invaluable. They are great for new and old citizens alike, who wish to make their accounts stronger, and our nation stronger as a result.

CO's invest in the present, while my plan is an investment in our future, which is sorely needed.

If you don't trust the leadership of BC, EZC and our other top MU's to get this money to the soldiers, then that's a separate issue on its own.
