Heart Regional Message Board

Keurlamt wrote:Why did you just make the same speech but longer and without any new policy. It's not a contest of who makes the longer speech it's a contest of who has the best policies.

Keurlamt,

First, I would like to apologize for how long my message was. Unfortunately, I do not know how to collapse segments of a post into a button. I think this might be the reason that you missed all of the new policies I included in my message. Totally my fault for having my message so long. You shouldn't have to sift through my paragraphs to find the specific things I want to do. I will attach the new ideas as bullets below:

- Keep API going, but also expand manual recruitment
- Committee on Recruitment: the whole point of this committee is to come up with new and creative ways to recruit nations. If this idea works, I will establish more committees to fix other problems which face us
- Work with the Union to gain resources for recruitment

- Establish a brand new Ministry of Roleplay (We don't have one right now)
- Include roleplaying both on the RMB and on Discord
- Hold more events for the citizens of Heart
- Hold joint events with other regions
- Establish a brand new Ministry of Internal Affairs

- Expand our autonomy from the Union. As an example, I want our Constitution to have higher power than Federal Laws; Right now, Federal Representatives who have not been elected by us can actually pass legislation that would amend our Constitution!
- Expand our relationship with the High Commission, specifically to gain more resources (I have a special advantage here, as I have good relations with the High Commissioner)
- See if we can get another seat in the House

- Citizens' Council: the purpose of this Council will be to advise me and the cabinet on what the People want.
I will repeat, it will not be my job to impose my will on Heart, it will be my job to listen to the citizens of Heart and do what you want.

Finally, it will be my main goal to bring transparency and bipartisanship to Heartian politics again. I have demonstrated time and again that I am dedicated to these values, and I commit to fulfilling them to the best of my abilities.

Vote for transparency, progress, and bipartisanship. Vote Xyrgistan

POLICIES OVER PLATITUDES; VOTE ELYSIUM

Fellow nations of Heart, First Minister voting begins tonight. As you cast your vote, think of the future and of who you believe should lead our great region for the following months. If you need one final look at my policy proposals right now, I have attached them below.

Recruitment Reform

In order to sustain Heart's awesome community, we need new nations who bring diverse and interesting experiences. The region-wide events we have are always more fun when more nations participate, and a democratic government is better when there are more nations with wider policy positions for voters to chose from. Reforming the recruitment process to make it more efficient and effective will be one of my most important policy goals.
I plan to form the Committee on Recruitment, made up of five nations, whose whole purpose will be to develop new and creative ways to recruit nations. The Committee will meet at least once every two weeks. I will obviously keep API running, but I will also prioritize expanding manual recruitment.

- Keep API going, but also expand manual recruitment
- Committee on Recruitment: the whole point of this committee is to come up with new and creative ways to recruit nations. If this idea works, I will establish more committees to fix other problems which face us
- Work with the Federal government to gain resources for recruitment

Internal Affairs

As First Minister, I will make it a priority to organize new and exciting events for Heart citizens to participate in, making our region more fun. This would include RolePlaying reform to make it more inclusive, a dedicated Ministry position solely to come up with new ideas for Heart, and much, much more.
We need ministry specifically dedicated to RolePlay, which we do not currently have. Similar to Elysium's idea, I would like to expand RolePlaying so it can be done over Discord as well.
My current ambassador program which I am running as Minister of Foreign Affairs has greatly expanded relations with other regions, to the point where one of the regions with which we have an embassy has asked to hold a joint event with us. There is no point in having many citizens if they have nothing to do. I want to have fun, region-wide, and even inter-regional events, every so often to keep the citizens of Heart engaged and participating in Heart. To achieve these goals, I plan on completely revamping the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

- Establish a brand new Ministry of Roleplay (We don't have one right now)
- Include roleplaying both on the RMB and on Discord
- Hold more events for the citizens of Heart
- Hold joint events with other regions
- Establish a brand new Ministry of Internal Affairs

A New Approach to the Union of Force

As First Minister, another of my central priorities will be expanding Heart's influence and participation in the Union of Force, making your voices heard on the Federal level.
This includes attempting to gain more autonomy from the Federal Government. We deserve the right to decide what is best for us. That said, I will still make it a priority to work with the Federal Government as well. As previously mentioned, I have been endorsed by the Federal High Commissioner, and my relationship with them allows me to better support Heart.

- Expand our autonomy from the Union. As an example, I want our Constitution to have higher power than Federal Laws; Right now, Federal Representatives who have not been elected by us can actually pass legislation that would amend our Constitution!
- Expand our relationship with the High Commission, specifically to gain more resources (I have a special advantage here, as I have good relations with the High Commissioner)
- Get another seat in the House

I will make it the first concern of my administration to listen to you, the citizens of Heart. I plan on creating the Citizens' Council, which will advise me on what the citizens need and want.

Another of my main goals will be to bring transparency and bipartisanship to Heartian politics again. I have demonstrated time and again that I am dedicated to these values, and I commit to fulfilling them to the best of my abilities.

Endorsements: New Glaceon (High Commissioner of the Union), Non-violenceHEART (A citizen of Heart, just like you)

As I have said many times, my administration will be committed to transparency, bipartisanship, and progress for all Heartians. We will listen to all citizens' opinions no matter what. A vote for Xyrgistan is a vote for yourself!

Vote Xyrgistan!

CLOSING MESSAGE
To my fellow citizens of Heart I shall be honest with you our region is under the shade of a dark cloud and if we continue at our current rate it shall be a cloud which eats this region and leaves nothing else. This is why I seek to be First Minister as I have the experience, the policy goals, and the connections to truly make Heart shine as it did under the Ministry of The Scottish Republic.

My Experience
I am currently serving as a House Representative for the region of Heart in the Union House, as well as Deputy Minister of Heart within our own government. As a House Rep. I worked with Salibaic to ensure that Heart is mandated representatives as we nearly had no representatives. I am also the main advocate for pursuing new electoral methods which would help territories most notably I am the only elected official I know of who supports ridding ourselves of using WA status to determine the activity of a region. As the former First Minister of Heart I oversaw the institution of Weekly Messages from the First Minister to the people for transparency. I also oversaw a brief period after the disaster which was the Alemputo Ministry in which Heart wasn’t losing citizens. Finally I have been alongside my friend The Scottish Republic the longest serving advocate of Heart rights, and together we gave Heart control over its own foreign affairs and even elected a Heart Interest Party to become the opposition in the House of Representatives. Lastly on culture I oversaw Heart’s only RP we have had which I hope to remake.
TL;DR
• I have served in a number of Heart offices which prepare me for this high office I seek.
• I have consistently fought for reforming the Union to benefit heart and ensured Heart has Seats in the Union House.
• I oversaw Heart’s RP which fell out of disuse once I was out of office.
• I co-led the movement which gave heart control over our own Foreign Affairs.

My Policies
Population
The Most important issue to my campaign shall be increased recruitment within Heart. This is due to our small size and quite simply competent recruitment strategies will be the only thing which can bring us out of this activity depressions alongside culture policies.

• Lobby the federal government for support for recruitment using my house seat and my cabinet jobs, alongside working with the High Commissioner and Prime Minister.
• Request formal support from the High Commission.
• Revamp our recruitment telegram to make it more appealing, simple, and user friendly
• Expand both manual and automatic recruitment, I plan to personally do manual recruitment over the summer and use the manual system to be able to follow up with interested people.
• Explore a possible Recruitment Department and Secretary.

Political Reform
While this election is a great example of the democracy we currently have, it could be better and I plan to make it better through the institution of various reforms.

• In order to make Hearts house more active I wish to hold more regular elections and decrease the size of the body in order to make its seats more competitive.
• To make Heart’s house more proportional I wish to switch to a system of direct election via a party vote, make parties have to release an electoral list, and hold open primaries to decide the list.
• Create transparency laws requiring newly elected First Ministers to release an agenda of what they plan to do every two weeks.
• Amend the Heart Constitution to give members of the civil service a right to unionize
• Reduce the size of the cabinet.
• Encourage unionization within the civil service by personally meeting with them.
• Create a petition system allowing for recalls, referendums, and citizens initiatives.

Basic Legislative Agenda
A basic agenda of what laws I plan to propose to the House of Legislators

Fixed Term Elections Act, creates official dates for regional elections.
Proportional House Act, changes Heart’s electoral system.
Transparency Act, creates various transparency laws.
Better Executive Act, reduces the cabinet size and redefines the jobs of various cabinet members
A More Direct Democracy Amendment, creates the recall referendum and citizens initiatives act.
Unionization Act, adds unto the bill of rights.

A More Cultural Heart
Once we get new people we most keep them here, keep them engaged, and keep them in nationstates. As such I plan to perform a number of policies with the goal of will increase the cultural side of heart

• Reintroduce Heart RP on both discord and RMB.
• Create daily questions in RMB like other regions, require cabinet members to respond.
• Make more engaging polls.
• Hold debate days, movie nights, music nights, and similar activities
• Increase activity within the discord through channels which ascertain to people’s interest.

Using My House Seat To Lobby The Feds
I plan to use my House seat to more directly lobby for Heart interest within the federal government. While I already do this as seen by me standing up against other representatives who wanted to make Heart no longer a state, as First Minister I would have a stronger mandate and more respectable position in doing this.

My Opponent
Xyrgistan is a good citizen and if I am elected I will keep him MoFA for Heart. Yet I truly believe I am the better candidate to lead heart simply on the basis that he has said himself he has used more platitudes than policies as he is “not set in stone and will listen”. With all due respect this is none sense the idea one cannot have policies while also not being able to listen, if any citizen of heart offers a better alternative to my one of my policies I will change that policy. Yet this reckless inaction on the part of the UPP candidate will doom Heart to another Alemputo style Ministry, that being a Ministry of failure. We are in a dark place and dark places need strong leaders with the policy vision to pull the region out of its slump, his lack of a plan and ideals of inactivity will ruin and weaken heart till we are withered so far away we are not even worth a damn to those who rule over us in the union.

Closing Statement
Now is not the time for the platitudes of promises words such as bi-partisan, words such as transparency, and words such as progress. Now is the time for policies of bi-partisanship, policies which will fight corruption and make your region transparent, parties which will bring forth the sector of progress. I am the candidate of policy which is why I propose so much more than that of my opponent. And to those who are traditional supporter of the FUP, which has become the UPP, I have this warning for you; this opposition party has fallen to incompetence do not allow your region to fall as well.
Thank You and Vote Empire of ElysiumBECAUSE WE HAVE ONE SHOT TO SAVE HEART & CAN’T WASTE IT ON PLATITUDES

I think you are allowed to vote as long as you joined earlier than the election started.

Forget about the boring star. We have something much more exciting 🔥🐦
