Pungy has done a lot for the Global Defenders, there’s no denying it. In the first year, Pungy was far from insignificant in our rapid rise and was a fantastic first leader. It was because of that I bent the knee to Pungy and became his Second in Command. But times have changed, my fellow Defenders. Pungy has grown much to comfortable in the seat of Leader, and still he seeks a third year to rule.
Pungy tells you he founded this proud army. What he doesn’t tell you is that I’ve been here since it’s first week. I helped Pungy write the Constitution. I helped Pungy organize the Senate. I helped Pungy every step of the way in my days as 2ic.
Pungy tells you he led the army to its best sizes in history. What he doesn’t tell you is that we haven’t had our best sizes since 2011. It’s almost 2013 now, and Pungy has been leading us the whole way.
Pungy tells you he fought of a number of hackers to keep you safe. What he doesn’t tell you is that I was the one to create the back up site on Weebly, and reformed hackers like Flu and Subzero are the ones doing the real protecting.
Pungy tells you he led this army to seventh in the Top Ten. What he doesn’t tell you is that he only did that once, a year ago. He doesn’t tell you that, under his leadership, you’ve been out of the Top Ten for almost a year.
Pungy tells you he defended the GD nation with diplomacy, when SWAT attacked, and secured us an alliance with one of the strongest armies of the time. What he doesn’t tell you is that in the first war, he gave away more than two servers for Outback. He doesn’t tell you that in the last SWAT war, he gave away half of Outback, our capital.
Pungy tells you he joined in on several world wars. What he doesn’t tell you is the risks his wars cost. He doesn’t tell you that wars such as these, such as with SWAT, cost us much in not just servers, which are easily enough negotiated back, but in our pride and national morale.
Pungy didn’t tell you these things. He tells you what he thinks you should know. He wants your vote so that he can rule for his third year in a row. He wants democracy, as long as you’re listening to him. He wants to be in charge, and he’s making sure he gets just that. He tries to convince you that because people whose closest relations to this army are a past, people who found success outside this army, endorse him, you should too.
Defenders, those people don’t care about the army. They care about Pungy. They’re not concerned with who leads the Defenders. They know that if they support Pungy, Pungy won’t rally this army against theirs. We don’t need Ice Viking founders or SWAT leaders to tell us who to vote for. And, Defenders, he shouldn’t need the support of the elite, the successful, the higher up. You are the body of the army, you decide the rules. You decide your leader.
Pungy tells you he will ensure the fairness and justice of the Supreme Court. He didn’t tell you I’ve been pushing for a Supreme Court for months. He wants you to spend less time in the court room. A quick trial isn’t a fair trial. Under our Constitution, you have the right to a fair and speedy trial. “Speedy” means soon. It means you get tried that same week. It doesn’t mean you have judges rushing your trials.
Pungy tells you he will keep the Assembly active and controlled by the People. He didn’t tell you that I came up with the Assembly almost a year ago, and Pungy insisted on the failing, self-interested Senate.
And he tells you he will reward attendance with Globe Coins. This, my friends, is the worst of his promises. This salary goes against the democracy and freedom we have instituted. Defenders, if people feel the need to be rewarded for exercising their power, they aren’t there for the good of the army. If there’s only a few people at an Assembly, so be it. Those are the people who have the dedication and the right to decide the army’s fate.
Defenders, let’s protect our democracy. We don’t need dictators sitting on top of the army for years on end, especially when time is so short in armies. Pungy may not be tired of sitting, but I am. I’m tired of sitting in the shadows. I’m tired of sitting behind Pungy, whispering over his shoulder. I’m tired of having to watch Pungy take credit for my ideas and my work, the time and dedication I give to make this army run. The army? Pungy wants you to think he built that. He didn’t build that. You built that. We all built that. This is your army now, Defenders, not Pungy’s. The time has come for you to take charge. The time has come to be led by one of you. The time has come to change, to rise. The time has come.
