A player since July 2009, I've seen many congress members, presidents, and even political parties come and go. I've seen the slip-ups. I've seen the price. As a congress member, hopefully I can help us avoid them.
I spent two terms in the Ministry of Home Affairs, one term as an Apprentice in the Entertainment section, and one term as the Underminister for Recruitment. I know what it's like working for the country, and I've done it before.
I'm an awful dirty socialist, and I honestly believe we should help those who need it through systems like The Unity Food Program. Without TUFP, many of our younger members may have given up on eRepublik altogether. Experienced players helping those newer players to realise their potential is the only way we'll survive as a nation.
In terms of foreign policy, I believe we should have access to battles at all times, and we should gain regions with resources where possible. We shouldn't attack regions we can't secure and keep, and we shouldn't attack regions if it'll leave any of our own regions vulnerable. Expansion is nice, but our own land should come first.
