As we enter a time where moral courage is needed by all, where the people of Ireland need to re-evaluate their lives. Ask themselves what now? how do i get over this economic slump? how can I help others? what are our politicans doing? are they too fearful of the powerful european parlament?

Ireland needs a new direction, same oul same oul has not been working.
we no longer live in a society, we live in an economy.

we share villiages,towns and cities but as RFK once said even back in 1968 we dont share communites.

It is a sad fact that a country that can claim to have desendants of no less then 16 american presidents, that we can not help our own people.

we have few if any policitains who have an ideals, or offer inspireration to the people of Ireland.

brief pre view of policys available on page 5 of this tread

I believe that the time has come as do others to start a party that has no history and can offer new hope, one that is open to liberals, conservatives, democrates, unionists and republicians.

If you feel that you would be interested in straying from the easy path of personal secruity and have the courage to stand for your believes and believe you can help others maybe this is the party for.

If you are interested we are looking to set up meetings around the country and hopefully in time for the local elections leave a comment here or email me on my own email.

this is only an idea but from ideas come revolutions. Ireland needs a political revolution.

I'm not trying to be condescending (though it's difficult to say this without appearing so) but if you want anyone around here, or anywhere else for that matter, to take you seriously, you need to ensure your spelling and grammar is better than it was in that post.

TBH Michael the rhetoric is great but a party needs some coherence in what it is for. Else it is a big tent bunch of egos united in nothing but a sense of entitlement and a lust for power. And I am not joining FF...

I believe that too much right wing, left wing, capitalism, socialism is a bad thing for a country i believe we must find a common ground for a common good.

If i were asked what i would be personally i would say i am more left then right, however i do believe in a strong economy but not paying for this with our sanity. or also by leaving the weak behind. the strongest economys are built from strong education systems.

I would love to discuess this more and anyone with any views or ideas feel free to express them.

politics should not be about power, you are not elected to rule the people but to serve the people.

The point I was trying to make was that without people knowing where you stand, it'll be hard for them to see themselves joining.

Publish some more of your thoughts and musings.

Fair enough Mick, it doesn't bother me personally but most people would notice it. Best of luck.

Unfortunately, power corrupts and in the absence of term limits...

As i said im open to all views (moderate) anyway. I dont have all the answers. All parties have people in them with different believes.

The common goal of this party should it come to be, is to make Ireland a fairer country with new political ideas, to try and give the middle class there lives back, to help the poorer and less educated.

to show that its not your name or address but the contains of your character that decide your future.

Another vacuous call for a NEW political party in Ireland. I previously wagered €2,000 on some other genius if he actually managed to get his new political party off the ground ... and, yes comrades, I still have my money.

So, Madmick, here's the deal. If you're serious about this idea I will drop you a cheque for €2,000 if you establish a registered political party in the next 6 months and run at least five candidates in the local elections next year. If you're not going to p1ss, madmick, get off the pot!

Safest bet I ever made ... again!

Ok, I'll join if you take a pro-abortion stance.

See, now in order to gain membership, you're going to have to make sacrifices on your own ideology.

of course i have already stated i will not agree with everybodies views.

in relation to abortion, (been a former law student) i would only agree from my own personal point of view to abortion in the case of the mothers physical health been in danger.

all other health risks can be over come. all other reasons for abortion i having argued this several times can also be over come.

I'm already in a political party, madmick, so you'll have no joy from me. the rest of your comment is just the same old fluffy nonsense that other people spouted when they said they would set up a new political party.

It is a good thing i dont take the same negitive attitude as you do my friend.
or that MLK OR JFK OR RFK even Michael collins or Eamon dev cos otherwise we would never have progress.
It is not your fault you are so negitive it seems that our society is offened by change or has no believe in hope or dreams. sad really.

Il continue to reach my goal and hopefully others will have have the strength to believe we can have a more moral and caring society and will join this movement and make it a party.
