A New Alliance For Progress
The Irish Democratic Party believes in Thomas Jefferson’s statement the government that governs best
is that, that governs least. Therefore we intend to roll back the frontiers of the state and rid business of costly legislation.
We will holdaccountable those who have committed major financial crime in regards to thebanking crisis we will minimise the losses the taxpayer has made on the bank guarantees and reform the financial regulator to ensure that this never happens again.
So many of our citizens are facing the daily struggle of paying bills, receiving intimidating letters from unlicensed repossession agents and debt collectors we will make sure that every debt recovery agency is licensed and can be held accountable.
We will lower taxes, control inflation and encourage an enterprise culture.
We hold the philosophy that taxation is a necessary evil, and we will always endeavour to cut taxes when we are able to without jeopardizing the performance of our economy.
We will have an open representative system of local democracy we will endeavour to promote low taxation, inclusion and accountability.
Local democracy will flourish; we will encourage the formation of townships Irish communities to work together to decide what is best for their towns. Elected mayors, judges, and Garda commissioners will all be
introduced to give real power to the people of Ireland.
We will abolish the Seanad as it is a pointless waste of public money getting in the way of legislative progress.
The government has been inactive on vital issues and the people of this country have never been more disenfranchised with its leaders, our three major political parties lack the political courage to take us out of this crisis.
Our National Platform & Manifesto for 2011 takes us forward and the above is just some of our pledges to the people of this country.
Our party has made moral commitments to the people of this country and if you join us then together we can create A New Alliance for Progress.
