Fed History: A founding of a party (2008)

Post by Tiacha on Fri Apr 05, 2013 7:45 am

I'm going to be doing a variety of history threads on a few different topics at a time. This time, its gonna be the actual founding of our party. Details are a big fuzzy, but this is the best I can remember. So poke me with questions if you have them.

So back in the day a lot of us were a part of the old conservative party. It was lead by Desertfalcon, an old school beta player, who was prominent in V1. You might remember him for the war reports he wrote. The group of us who didn't agree with the direction of the CVP were Rise, Alby, Logomaster304, Billy Flemming, and me. I at the time was kinda transplant from the USWP. I didn't really like them cause they were not noob friendly and I couldn't really run for congress cause Ohio at the time was dominated by GoBucks of the CVP. So the group of us, right after V1 began in Oct 2008 started the Federalist Party. We were a small group at first but with a good recruiting team and were welcome to anyone new. We also had a good relationship with the United Independent Party, which included Justinious and PrincessMedyPi. They allowed us to run candidates for Congress, as back then you had to run a candidate in each state but had to be in a top 5 party. I was eventually the first Federalist elected to Congress in Nov 2008. It was a battle the whole party fought cause it was a tightly contested race which ended in a tie. I won by one exp.

The Feds actually almost ceased to exist around Dec. 2008 when Kyle321n, the PP of Nationalist Party attempted to propose a merge between the two parties. We were the smaller of the two parties at the time, but a few of us stood firmly against the merge. It proved to be the right decision as we eventually grew and the Nationalist Party faded. We grew slowly and surely which lead into better times with more growth... Which will be discussed in future threads!

Whoa, this was even before my time.

I remember the Feds' early (but not this early) days as an outsider and was extremely impressed by your eventual rise. I'd like to think I saw your quality early on which is why when I was the USWP Political Director in 2009 (in charge of coordinating Congressional elections), I sought out as many Feds as I could to run under the USWP banner. I did not want to compete against you. Even way back then, you ran good people and got them elected -- it was quality and strategy combined.

I love these history lessons/memories, hope they continue.

I assume you have this lying around someplace. If not, here you go:


[20:00] tiacha today i will be going over the early history of the feds, from our inception til the first reign of fingerguns
[20:01] tiacha the party was formed after the september 2008 congressional election right after v1 began
[20:02] tiacha rise, and his faction withing the erep for change
party (RFC) had a falling out with the big time conservative leader of
the time, Desertfalcon
[20:02] tiacha the rfc later became the conservative party which later was attempted pto by ajay bruno in the middle of 2009
[20:02] tiacha but thats another story
[20:02] tiacha that was his first pto attempt
[20:03] tiacha but anyway, there was a disagreement between
desertfalcon and rise not only on the party platform but over who would
run in what state
[20:03] tiacha this disagreement cause the faction lead by rise to split from the RFC and form the Federalist Party
[20:04] tiacha The group was orginally Rise, Alby (1gold=1usd), Logomaster, Kole, and Voltaire
[20:04] eliwood_sain THE GREAT PROFIT!!!
[20:04] tiacha I joined the group a few days after, when i got fed up with uswp politics
[20:05] DuncanC Wait, 1gold=1usd was real?!?
[20:05] eliwood_sain not really
[20:05] eliwood_sain it was just his big theory and the goal for the US
[20:05] Bristel_Akina It was a long-running joke for our finance plans in the eUS
[20:05] tiacha few references to the situation at the time here
[20:05] tiacha http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/why-i-don-t-join-a-political-party-684247/1/20
[20:05] tiacha http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/my-party-search-has-ended-with-the-federalist-party-694120/1/20
[20:06] tiacha But anyway, we were a small group, maybe 10 of us at the time
[20:06] tiacha we started a little forum
[20:06] tiacha which i think still exists if you google it
[20:06] tiacha "federalist party" and "erepublik"
[20:07] tiacha we didn't really organize until the november election though
[20:07] tiacha me and logomaster and billy flemming were the first three running
[20:07] tiacha they didn't campaign much, but I did.
[20:08] tiacha I ran in ohio that month, but I pretty much had to scramble to run there
[20:08] tiacha we didnt know then that 6th parties couldnt run candidates
[20:08] tiacha so i had to beg UIP (United Independent Party) leaders to run our people
[20:08] fingerguns so newb
[20:09] tiacha luckily, billy and logo were friends with justious so we got to run
[20:09] eliwood_sain is that where the beginnings of the SexyLulz campaign came from?
[20:09] tiacha anyway, i was running against gobucks, a big uswp guy, and a mayor of ohio from beta
[20:10] fingerguns herp derp we can't run candidates as a 6th party, i love it
[20:10] eliwood_sain oh GoBucks. I remember him. He was nice...
[20:10] tiacha he was well known, and had the uswp bigwig at the time
[20:10] tiacha it was really an uphill battle because there was actually still state politics back then
[20:10] tiacha left over from mayors in beta
[20:11] tiacha i was running against my rl friend, royaman, another beta columbus mayor too
[20:11] Paul_Proteus feels like a noob now
[20:11] tiacha basically, it was a tight race all day, but my election was one of the first cases of multi use in v1
[20:12] tiacha gobucks didnt use multies, but one of his supporters did
[20:12] tiacha it added a lot of drama to the election, but it was only the start of the drama for the day
[20:12] tiacha the election ended in a tie
[20:13] tiacha i had one more exp than gobucks so i should have won
[20:13] tiacha but due to an admin bug (so many then), gobucks did
[20:13] tiacha well the feds went out in force then
[20:13] tiacha bitching
[20:13] tiacha me, billy, logo, alby
[20:13] tiacha finally the admins overturned it
[20:13] eliwood_sain Beginnings of butthole hater trolls?
[20:14] tiacha but the trolling between us and the uswp started the hatred of the uswp by all other parties at the time
[20:14] tiacha which would influence national politics for the next few months
[20:14] tiacha but i was the first elected fed congressperson in history, nov 2008
[20:14] Kara tiacha: do you remember how many votes the tie was at?
[20:15] tiacha it was a great success for us at the time. 9-9 i believe kara
[20:15] tiacha we mobilized as a party, and really was the beginning of the mobile voting process for parties
[20:15] tiacha we became so good at it in the coming months
[20:16] tiacha and it put our party on the map
[20:16] tiacha i dont think we would have surprised if we didnt have that small victory that month
[20:16] tiacha i was ridiculed for a lot of my beliefs in congress that month, mostly my vote against our involvement in the war in france
[20:16] tiacha i thought it would drain our resources
[20:17] tiacha but back then, there were NO wars in the eus
[20:17] tiacha no mpps to really get us fighting anywhere
[20:17] tiacha it was a politics game, or you were a marine to fight in balkins wars
[20:17] tiacha but it changed that month with the war
[20:18] tiacha people didnt agree with my vote, but they respected me, and our party
[20:18] tiacha i kinda got sick of it after a month and took a break from congress
[20:18] tiacha but then dec-jan 09 we had another challenge as a party
[20:19] tiacha logomaster, our pp at the time, was approached by kyle321n about merging with the nationalist party
[20:19] tiacha he came to us because he thought that together we'd have a better chance of getting into the top 5
[20:20] tiacha because they had more people at the time, we would have used their party name and structure
[20:20] tiacha everyone in the party voted to do it except me
[20:20] tiacha i fought hard, real hard, and finally convinced people that we could do it on our own
[20:20] tiacha and i won the argument
[20:21] tiacha we would have been the nationalist party now if i didnt win that arguement
[20:21] tiacha because of the backlash and because he was burned out, logo resigned as PP
[20:21] tiacha I took over PP for the rest of the month
[20:22] tiacha I made sure we were in line and ready to run our
candidates again in feb, but didnt hold onto the pp long because i
started my first stint as a marines
[20:22] tiacha we had to be mobile then, so i turned over leadership to Alby
[20:23] tiacha we came back with awesomeness in Feb 09 with 4 candidates elected, myself, gilroy, bill brasky and gaius julius
[20:23] tiacha it was a glorious day and a trust show of our organization
[20:24] eliwood_sain I miss all of those people. I don't remember Gilroy so much, but I do the others
[20:24] tiacha around then, we implemented the political director position under gilroy
[20:24] tiacha gilroy was a srs business guy
[20:24] tiacha he was an organizer and didn't stand down to the uswp
[20:24] tiacha our rivals at the time
[20:25] tiacha he, alby, and myself really held the party together until gaius took over as PP
[20:26] tiacha we really started kicking butt around then, cause in feb 09 i was nominated for speaker
[20:26] tiacha we had an alliance with the cvp, uip, etc at the time
[20:27] tiacha but kyle, who ran against me, had the uswp in his pocket
[20:27] tiacha it was funny because he grew to hate them
[20:27] tiacha but he used them to his advantage at the time
[20:27] tiacha it was a decent race, but he won
[20:28] tiacha but he had to give the feds big political favors in order for him to get stuff through with our block
[20:28] tiacha we ended up winning a lot of congressional chairs, brasky, gaius and i, when he created committees in order to compensate
[20:29] tiacha but after the impeachment of uncle sam, when scrabman took power, partisanship really changed us as a nation
[20:29] tiacha the other parties realized that unless they united, no one could defeat the uswp
[20:29] fingerguns is still not alive at this point
[20:29] Stingerscrabman \o/
[20:29] eliwood_sain I'm alive, but I haven't been around too long
[20:30] tiacha we created a conservative coalition, which really was not that, but an alliance of the parties against the uswp
[20:30] tiacha we created the iccr (independent congressional review ratings) in order to legitimize our alliance
[20:30] tiacha it basically was a huge endorsement list
[20:31] eliwood_sain didn't Rhinelander work with those?
[20:31] tiacha if you were not on the list at that time, you almost all of the time lost
[20:31] tiacha later on he did, eli, but it was really a baby of me, princessmedipi, kyle, and jewitt
[20:31] tiacha we included a uswp rep on the selection committee each month
[20:32] tiacha but they were almost always outnumbered
[20:32] tiacha the partisanship, even though scrabman tried to
keep the uswp out of it, was only intensified with ananis' 50 state plan
on april 09
[20:33] tiacha that was his glorious plan to run and elect a USWPer in EVERY State
[20:33] tiacha scrabber promised id be safe to run there despite what ananias said
[20:34] tiacha but lowell kennedy thought otherwise
[20:34] tiacha he was just a big uswp prick, but most people liked him
[20:34] tiacha but i was scrabs COS at the time
[20:35] tiacha after i found out lowell was running uswp, i figured i wouldnt have a chance with the uswp machine behind him and zombie voters
[20:35] tiacha so i resigned as cos and from congress cause scrab and ananias lied to me
[20:35] tiacha which lead to a HUGE backlash against the uswp then
[20:36] tiacha claire littleton was becoming a big deal back then
[20:36] tiacha she was orginally uip then lib
[20:37] tiacha she was my friend and as cos i made her our first media director in history
[20:37] Stinger except really scrabman did that
[20:37] tiacha she created the newspaper the department of media uses today all cause i told scrabber to do it
[20:37] Stinger psh
[20:37] Stinger psh
[20:37] Stinger psh
[20:37] tiacha gave her the money
[20:37] Stinger rewriting history in this bitch
[20:38] tiacha whatever
[20:38] eliwood_sain Stinger can do his history night some other time
[20:38] tiacha scrabber wouldnt have made her media secretary if it wasnt for me
[20:38] tiacha and they made the newspaper cause they didnt want her paper getting votes
[20:38] tiacha in case she ever left
[20:38] tiacha anyway
[20:39] tiacha point is we were friends, she was pissed over what lowell did
[20:39] tiacha and ran a sucessful revenge campaign and stomped his face in
[20:39] tiacha I left for the marines after that
[20:39] tiacha also a side note about this time, was the feds were bffs with the UIP
[20:40] tiacha Princessmedypi and i ran an attempt for president/vp in april 09
[20:40] eliwood_sain I remember that...
[20:40] tiacha it was the sexy/lulz campaign
[20:40] tiacha in which Mel ran with pics of just her in a corset
[20:40] tiacha it was quite, well, just mel
[20:41] tiacha but we lost due to a crowded field
[20:41] tiacha jj/scrab/mel/kyle ran that month
[20:42] tiacha but that was pretty much the major history up until fg became pp
[20:42] tiacha stinger ran against fg that month
[20:42] tiacha got sad he lost to fg
[20:42] Stinger I'll edit this to actually be accurate, historically
[20:42] tiacha slaps stinger

Hehe. To put this out there, I was in the eRfC (DF renamed it CvP a month or two after I joined the game in Nov 2008). When I got involved in politics in the CvP, Mattoze5 and I despised DF and his PP-ship of that party. We eventually got him to step down as PP and we took over the CvP then...and I enjoyed working with my Fed friends like Gaius and Tiacha.

My first term in Congress (now over 4 years and 26 terms ago), I voted Tiacha for SoH. First vote I ever made in Congress...a body most people around here can testify I've had a decent sized impact upon.

the preservation of the parties history could also help as a recruitment tool. i joined this party because of how old it was..... that and my decision was also loosely based on election results and some google searches. OH and lets not forget a guest friendly IRC channel.
