Thanks for coming by. I look forward to hearing more about your plans. :-)

In the meantime, some easy questions:
When do cabinet picks come out?
What's something you want to change, or do differently to Derp?
Can you genuinely be both CP and CO of EZC? Especially if there's a major war that breaks out.
Tell us what you think of Asteria, and how we (as an eNation) should interact with them.

. I am very interested in understanding what your views are on the War with NZ.

What are our goals as a Nation?

Why should we continue the suppression of Ukraine?
What do we gain from this?

Keeping them wiped just for the fuck of it does not sit well with me.

A suppression of any community is not right. Especially just for the hell of it.
Maybe it is time to let them go.

I just wanted to stop in and say that these are all great questions.

I was planning on answering them this morning while I was at work, but my boss is out and so is one co-worker. I will answer all of these questions in as much detail as I can later this afternoon or early evening.
I didn't want you to think I was blowing off your questions.

Cabinet Article will come out on Sunday. My platform article will be released Saturday. I may choose to combine the two though since I only have 1 article left for that annoying Sr Journalist mission.

I want to focus a little bit more on domestic issues. Derp did a great job outside the eUS, but his DoCA programs were greatly lacking.

I think I can handle both jobs. Having the "might" of EZC behind me as PotUS if a war breaks out is important, especially if I need to set COs during battles as those COs would carry the EZC name on them. If I feel that I am being overwhelmed in both positions, I can always pass CO on to one of my trusty XOs.

What do I think of Asteria? This is a good question. I am a fan of Poland, Romania and Slovenia. Poland's air might has been a huge help for us. Romania, while not on friendly terms with our ally Hungary, has helped us over the last few months with our Ukranian excursion. Other members, like Iran and China, can be powerful allies during our off times. We just added an MPP with Portugal, and we have been allied with them in the past. Peru, eh.. I don't really know that many people for there, same goes for Lithuania. The only real question mark in that alliance is Serbia for us.

Do I want to MPP Serbia? Not really. Would it benefit us if we were allied with them? maybe but that is for Congress to decide should Serbia ever ask.

My stance on New Zealand is simply that by occupying them, we secure a border for our ally, Peru. Also, I am pretty sure it is run by a bunch of Serbians and not actual New Zealanders.

We originally wiped Ukraine in an alliance move as well a way to work with Romania. We have stayed because they have refused to negotiate for a peaceful exodus. If they want to negotiate in good faith, I am happy to listen.

Thanks for your answers. I seldom ask those questions myself, so I thank also the ones who asked those questions. Good that you see DoCa was neglected under Derp. I know it is a fighting game, but in the long run it is very important to give new players a welcome home and good advices (with eRepublik in a bad state it is even more important).

Asteria is where I have a lot of friends, so I like that we are allied with them a lot. I regret the feelings of eUSA with eSerbia. They have a lot of cool persons active, but I must admit they have also a lot of (censured by myself). The same you could say about eUSA I think. I do hope the old feud can go away. I do not mind fighting with nations I have a lot of friends in, but I hate the hatred.

Good luck with your platform Whydoibothertoo!

That's a worthy goal. How do you plan on convincing Congress to give DoCA money again? Or is it going to be funded via SCI?

Would you put EZC in the dictatorship chair if it was necessary because we were facing a wipe? Or would you revive the Citizen's Milita MU or similar and leave EZC to Deepchill?

This is a little awkward. Poland is Pacifica, not Asteria!

Do you consider Iran an ally? Even after Israel Stevens Iranian contraband drama from last year?

If the case of a Serbian MPP (or NE!) came up, Congress would look to the executive for guidance. If that happened on August 7, what guidance would you give?

I will not fund DoCA programs via SCI. If Congress is unwilling to supply money, then I will go the old school route and crowdsource funds.

I will not make EZC the Dictator MU. If the need for a Dictatorship were to come up, I will use the Citizen MU or create a new one solely for the purpose of installing the Dictatorship. I don't see any reason to have to put a dictatorship in place though. As for who I would leave in charge of EZC, that is an internal EZC matter, not a public matter.

My bad on the Poland thing, I wasn't looking at the Asteria alliance page and considering Poland has MPPs with almost all of Asteria, its not that far off.

I do consider Iran an ally. IS did not do anything wrong. His team found an Org that, according to Plato, was an eUS Org. It just happened to have money in it. Is Iran still mad about it?

As for the Serbia thing... I will not support any NE declaration against them as the outcome of such actions would not be good for the eUS.
I don't think an MPP with them is a good thing either. It makes sense from a security/safety standpoint, but the monumental shift of power in the game that would be created far outweighs that.

Do you really think DoCA programs are worth the time and effort?

Although IS did 'nothing wrong' the message it sent to the world was not good...optics are everything.

I agree but how would you fight against them? Embargo? High Import tax? Short of war with them what can be done to chip away at that power?

I absolutely think DoCA programs are worth the time and effort as long as they are publicized and people use them. I am very interested to see how many people use the air rank assistance program. Air battles are the future of this game for newer players and we need to get them going and ranking up.

I think taking an Org that you know isn't really yours and using it to store $3 mil cc and thinking no one will ever log into that Org was silly. It was an eUS Govt org. I liken that to owning a home that you have not visited in a year. Some dude picked the lock and put $3 mil dollars in the attic. You stop by YOUR property and find the money. What do you do with that money? leave it where you found it, turn it in to the cops, or keep it? I would be pretty tempted to take it myself. I certainly wouldn't leave it where I found it.

As for how you combat Serbia, there isn't much to do. Work with your allies to chip away at their empire. To truly take them down, you would need people willing to spend large amounts of real life money because Serbia has an extremely strong and well trained group of citizens. They coordinate battles via mobile apps and have even put calls out on Twitter when they need to get a bunch of people to log in and fight somewhere. An embargo against them wouldn't help either. They have plenty of their own people that produce goods and already have extremely low taxes in their country. Their import taxes are extremely high too so their citizens buy most of their products from internal producers.

Don't forget that Serbia is very good at infiltrating other countries and taking them over. Japan, UAE, New Zealand... Heck, they almost had the US thanks to some traitorous scum.

I would prefer to keep our relationship with them exactly as it currently is.. They don't bother us and we don't bother them.

So, your primary went missing? Convenient.

It's been a pleasure answering your questions. Feel free to vote for me to be our country's next President on the 5th.

Maybe it was convenient that the primary went missing (however it is sad too). It proved that feeds are not that reliable and that forums can be useful. I hadn't voted in it (I am always hesitating about whom to support), but my vote wasn't important at all. A lot of our members had voted and Jimmy had a very strong lead (confirmed by several SFP members). The last few hours couldn't have bring an other result.

I think we have two great candidates and that eUSA will have a good CP next month. Good luck!
