Elmikey Note: I will be making a post concerning the new ranks (Branches) Marines, Navy, Airforce. There will be a post about that after the war results later today.
First of all, I would like to thank you all for voting. Voting is one of the dearest rights given to us by our beloved USRPF constitution. When people don’t vote, not only do you not get a say in who runs things, but you run the risk of someone undeserving coming to power. By voting for the past 24 hours, you have secured the person that most of you wanted into a position of power. Once again, the people have their voice in high places. A round of applause please, for those who voted and help make this a historic day in this generation of RPF”s history.
Secondly, I would like to thank you all for choosing me to be the Vice President. A lot of power now rests before me. But through me, the power is also in your hands. You elected me. I am an elected official. That means I don’t just serve the USRPF. No. My main job is to serve you, the men and woman that make up this great army and nation. I am to serve your interests both foreign and domestic. And I promise that I will do everything within the limitations of my power to serve your best interests.
Here are some of the things that I will do, effective immediately:
- Safeguard Free Speech
I will do this mostly by monitoring the appliance of Rule 2 to bans that occur outside of battle. Article IV, Section I of the USRPF constitution effectively strikes Chatbox Rule 2 null & void, but there is only so much I can do. I will state openly that under my vice presidency, you may criticize the actions and conduct of any and all ranks above you without fear of repercussions or punishment. (To those ranked above me: If you have a problem with me allowing those under you to criticise and speak out against your actions and conduct, please take it up with the USRPF Constitution, which grants all members of the army the right to do so). Lighthearted jokes may also be protect by free speech, but if the person who is the butt of the joke feels insulted, I ask you to apologize (otherwise it can be seen as an insult). Furthermore, I will not be safeguarding you against punishment if your criticism is racist, vulgar, belligerent, or an insult meant to be hurtful.
- Listen To The People (And Follow The Majority)
Are you a Cadet rank? Are you a general rank? Are you yet to join? It does not matter on which rung of the ladder you are. If you come to me and tell me the way you feel about something, the stance you take on a subject, or upon which side of something you stand, I WILL listen. Not only will I listen, but I will take the side of the majority. Do most of you want to go to war with an army? Do most of you want peace with another? Perhaps you would like us to be allies/enemies with another army? It is no matter. If I hear enough people coming to me with their stance/side/opinion, I will side with you. I might not agree with you, but I will side with you. And if I’m asked why I’m siding with those I don’t agree with? “Because the majority want it so.”
- Sign The Constitution
The constitution states that “All leaders who are sworn into office must sign this constitution and vow to follow it”. Basically, that means that if you want to be the leader, you have to sign and vow to follow the USRPF constitution. Recently, the trend of doing so was broken. I will not delve into that in this post (but with time comes new posts). I will reestablish this trend and tradition. As soon as possibly possible, I will have my signature put upon the constitution to show that not only have I been sworn in, but I vow to uphold and abide by the constitution. Not only is this a symbol of my dedication to the RPF and it’s laws, but it is also a promise to you and to all: I cannot and will not abuse the power I have been given in this election.
- Improve Our Image And Community Ties
In the time I’ve been here, I’ve seen two different things. Long ago, I saw an RPF chat with a diverse allegiance of people. I saw a world where the word ally meant an army you could call to help in battle. Now I see none but RPF in chat. Ally means nothing except that said army won’t attack you. Isolationism has set in. And I am sure that there are numerous people who like it this way. And that’s fine. I am not aiming for too drastic of changes. But little things. Perhaps leaders visit the chat’s of allies more often. Perhaps we ask for help in battle when it’s needed. Maybe we do nothing. Ultimately, it is your decision, the members of the USRPF, as to what we do with this army and the way in which we do it.
I know what was just written is a VASTLY large wall of text. But that all needed to be said. You need to be informed of what your leaders stand for and what they plan to do. Everything that’s going on with the RPF, the troops should be aware of. So now, with this large post, you all know what I plan to do and what I will stand for. Now you know me.
Note: Remember to PC me in chat whenever you want to share with me your stance/opinion of something. As stated, I will listen and I will act.
And to close this post, I would like to extend gratitude and appreciation to the other candidates who ran. You all tried hard, and all of you were equally deserving of this position as I was. No matter which of us was elected, it would have been a win for the RPF, because the troops would have who they wanted in the position of their choosing. We all did well. We all played fair. We are all RPF.
Thank you all again, and have a great, freedom-guaranteed day!
USRPF Vice President
