[CG] The Conduct of Ronald Reagan (Political)

Day 1310
Article #39


America, it has been a number of days since I last talked to you. Since then, a wolf in sheep's clothing has appeared to threaten the American state, and this is none other than Ronald Reagan , the recently elected President.

Setting aside his previous conduct in games like this , I believe him to be a dangerous influence on this nation based solely on his conduct here, so far. I know that there are those of you who are devoted to him. I know that there are those of you who are willing to give him the benefit of the doubt--this is a mistake. There are four events that I specifically wish to raise attention to.

1. The Speaker of the House elections

When the March-April Congress was elected, this meant that it was time for a new Speaker of the House to be elected as well. The Speaker of the House is the "leader" of Congress, it is his job to make sure that Congressmen are working and following the Congressional By-Laws. Both Ronald Reagan and paranoidmelon ran for the position, paranoidmelon finally won in a 7-6 vote.

Ronald Reagan then raised a massive storm, denouncing the vote as illegitimate and against the by-laws, without ever actually addressing why or how it was. This is what led to the 80+comments on the national shout. The thing to note here is that he was perfectly willing to recognize the Congressional By-Laws as legitimate, until he didn't have the possibility of having the power to control them, at which point they became illegitimate.

2. Asking the Speaker of the House to vote against Ronald Reagan 's impeachment as a condition for being granted a seat in the cabinet.

In his latest Presidential article , Ronald Reagan addressed this issue in the following manner:



To put it bluntly, this is much, much less than a Presidential answer. First of all, real-life politics and political theory of this kind really hold no ground here. Secondly, dissent has always been allowed, even from cabinet members. The American Cabinet has never been a circle of yesmen who support the President in every issue. That's not what an American Cabinet has looked like...ever. This is an offence to the principles of democracy themselves.

3. Giving citizenship to foreigners in return for their vote supporting his Presidential bid.

There's a strange sight that one can see while looking through accepted citizenship applications. Specifically, this:



For those of you too lazy to google translate, that says "I want US citizenship certificate". Clearly, though, given the dating and the fact that he's already an Israeli citizen again, he didn't actually want citizenship, he wanted a vote in the Presidential election. Considering Ronald Reagan is the one who gave him citizenship...we can safely assume who he voted for. Wouldn't it be strange if the one vote he won by was one he specifically arranged for a foreigner to give him after he gave said foreigner temporary citizenship?

Oh, wait. That's exactly what happened.

4. Hiring foreign mercenaries and giving them citizenship in return for supporting the current government.

This one is particularly disturbing to me. This is a conversation that occurred last night in the national chat. I would like to draw particular attention to these lines:

02:15 RonaldReagan I am going to try to get us a few Serbian mercenaries
02:15 RonaldReagan Hopefully we can get them in time
02:15 RonaldReagan Would 3 or 4 make a difference?
02:15 RonaldReagan like really strong ones


Once again, Ronald Reagan shows his true colors, by seeking to have his friends in Congress grant citizenship to foreign mercenaries in order for them to fight against the rebels in the upcoming Civil war. Civil wars are supposed to be internal affairs, not to be interfered with by outsiders. Certainly not by mercenaries, and certainly not when they need citizenship in order to participate. Citizenship is not something one hands out like candy for political advantage. This is a disturbing use of power, and hardly fit for a sitting President to even be considering.

____

America, it is for these reasons that I am asking you to support the rebels in the upcoming civil war .

Ronald Reagan has shown us that he will do whatever it takes to acquire power.
Ronald Reagan has shown us that he will do whatever it takes to hold onto said power.
Ronald Reagan has shown us that he regards any authority he cannot personally control to be illegitimate.

America, this is not the kind of person we should have as our President. He will do whatever it takes to acquire and hold onto power, and for that reason alone, we, as Americans, should make it our duty to deny him that.

About the game:


USA as a world power? In E-Sim it is possible!

In E-Sim we have a huge, living world, which is a mirror copy of the Earth. Well, maybe not completely mirrored, because the balance of power in this virtual world looks a bit different than in real life. In E-Sim, USA does not have to be a world superpower, It can be efficiently managed as a much smaller country that has entrepreneurial citizens that support it's foundation. Everything depends on the players themselves and how they decide to shape the political map of the game.

Work for the good of your country and see it rise to an empire.

Activities in this game are divided into several modules. First is the economy as a citizen in a country of your choice you must work to earn money, which you will get to spend for example, on food or purchase of weapons which are critical for your progress as a fighter. You will work in either private companies which are owned by players or government companies which are owned by the state. After progressing in the game you will finally get the opportunity to set up your own business and hire other players. If it prospers, we can even change it into a joint-stock company and enter the stock market and get even more money in this way.


In E-Sim, international wars are nothing out of the ordinary.

"E-Sim is one of the most unique browser games out there"

Become an influential politician.

The second module is a politics. Just like in real life politics in E-Sim are an extremely powerful tool that can be used for your own purposes. From time to time there are elections in the game in which you will not only vote, but also have the ability to run for the head of the party you're in. You can also apply for congress, where once elected you will be given the right to vote on laws proposed by your fellow congress members or your president and propose laws yourself. Voting on laws is important for your country as it can shape the lives of those around you. You can also try to become the head of a given party, and even take part in presidential elections and decide on the shape of the foreign policy of a given state (for example, who to declare war on). Career in politics is obviously not easy and in order to succeed in it, you have to have a good plan and compete for the votes of voters.


You can go bankrupt or become a rich man while playing the stock market.

The international war.

The last and probably the most important module is military. In E-Sim, countries are constantly fighting each other for control over territories which in return grant them access to more valuable raw materials. For this purpose, they form alliances, they fight international wars, but they also have to deal with, for example, uprisings in conquered countries or civil wars, which may explode on their territory. You can also take part in these clashes, although you are also given the opportunity to lead a life as a pacifist who focuses on other activities in the game (for example, running a successful newspaper or selling products).


At the auction you can sell or buy your dream inventory.

E-Sim is a unique browser game. It's creators ensured realistic representation of the mechanisms present in the real world and gave all power to the players who shape the image of the virtual Earth according to their own. So come and join them and help your country achieve its full potential.
