President CollinMatthew's first post election interview with our new journalist MrJonahSmith
I enjoyed it too
This is the greatest interview I have seen from any vc news organization. MrJonahSmith is a great addition to the organization.
A little long but very interesting interview. I did have more questions but felt it wasn't as important. May put it in a different interview or article. Thank you President @CollinMatthew for taking the time to talk with me.
Also thank you to @MrAmerica for adding me to the VCBN team!
How are you feeling after the election?
CollinMatthew: I am feeling great. I sort of took a break after the nomination drama and cabinet elimination stuff but i'm back and ready to start working.
What do you plan on working on in the next month?
CollinMatthew: I want to start proposing some bills soon or sign some bills that cover important topics such as education and hopefully a comprehensive immigration bill. Also getting VC more active will be my #1 agenda this week and over the next month.
You have been a supreme court justice, vice speaker, speaker, debate host, and obviously president in VC. What is your advice to someone who wants to have a big career in VC?
One, have a normal SOH name and picture. I see a lot of people with weird names or no picture and believe it or not, it matters.
Two, understand that it will take time to become president, speaker, or chief justice. Start small and work your way up. It's not going to happen in a couple of months.
And lastly, stay very active and probably should post a lot of bills that you think can pass but bill that are also going to get people talking. Not something safe and boring.
If anyone wants some serious non biased advice from me. I don't care if were politically a like, I have always wanted to help people go far *[in congress]*. Just hit me up.
Things have settled down in VC. Do you think drama is going to die down for now on since election is over?
CollinMatthew: LOL probably not. Virtual Congress will always have some drama.
Do you think you have caused some drama before? Some people do.
CollinMatthew: The realcongress issue would probably be an example. I'm actually surprised BertGoldberg didn't use that in the campaign until the day of the election
I think looking back I remember I was so worried that I made a huge mistake. I even told MrAmerica, VP at the time, that I may have to resign and that he would become president. I'm glad I fought it through. H was immature but long term and looking back, it was a great decision for virtual congress.
Are you glad that jklink is back?
CollinMatthew: I am. I think he learned his lesson. I'm not a big fan of bans but that ban was good for jklink and for VC to show that we won't stand for VC to be manipulated like that.
Last question, you have said that there isn't corruption in VC. Do you still stand by that controversial statement?
CollinMatthew: My point wasn't that there aren't corruption in VC because there is. I should have communicated my point better. Just look at the jklink case and the not completely provable case that there are still fake accounts out there.
But my point was the corruption that bert and his surrogates have been accusing me of since the campaign began and that's what I was trying to get at.
Okay, thank you for your time, sorry it was a lot of questions.
CollinMatthew: lol no problem
