By early 2011, democratic progress had come to a standstill. In the April 2011 Elections, Hal was replaced by Lief, who was subsequently impeached. In the May 2011 Elections, Lief was winning again, but the next leader was impeached before the elections even ended. Many templars were discontent with this failure of democracy, with all the democratic impeachment votes succeeding.
A previously underground movement, the Purpleshirts, a fascist organisation with strict hierarchy and total discipline under Umholi Lief Ericson, marched the streets and took over before the third election in a row could take place.
Under its new ruler Lief Ericson, the clan fared much better than it did under the past two men to win the elections, resp. Lief Ericson and Lief Ericson. Many glorious events and festivities were organised, including the June 2011 Decennial Jubilee and the 2011 Flying Purple Cup.
Decline and end
During the early months of 2012, Lief found himself under the sway of the vile influence of pro-cronaldism. Darkflame then went and unadmined him for that, starting the Cronaldo and Chocolate Wars. Then Shusky de-admined Darkflame too, starting the de facto reign of Shusky in the Transitional Empirette of Flying Purple Huskies.
