Thai Nation Together
It was founded by a group of Brazilian players early on in Thailand's history. The policies of the TNT were quite diffuse for a long time - portrayed as a center party the party would reportedly lean left at many times. Speculation has occurred as to whether the labelling of the party as a center party was a conscious tactic in order to attract votes.
After the core group of Brazilian players left the party in early 2009 the party was adrift for some time, losing many members. The last party president of the TNT then took the initiative to reshape the party entirely to try to give it a new direction and purpose. On the 7th of April 2009, the party was reformed and renamed The Social Democratic Party - now as a clear and forthright (moderate) left-wing party. There were 65 members at the time in which the Thai Nation Together was dissolved.
As Thailand is in a stage where every move the country makes is of the utmost importance, the TNT party opts to put focus on three things:
- The need for stimulation of Thailand’s domestic production is crucial, Thailand needs a flourishing market that will draw people to Thailand, and make it grow.
- The Baht also needs to become stronger, and therefore we must consider both lending economical support to people who want to start up new businesses, and possibly create government controlled businesses that can cover the basic needs of the Thai people - thus making the job market more stable. However, it is of the utmost importance that any governmental initiatives don’t impel and hinder the private sector - but merely work to provide stability and safety to new citizens.
- Thai Nation Together above all abhor the thought of a divided Thailand, believing that petty squabbling among ourselves at this time when Thailand is relatively fragile would be disastrous. For this reason, the TNT looks for broad solutions, and are willing to meet the other parties half way rather than cause serious rifts between the people of Thailand. TNT is strongly against racism and sexism and identifies these things as just the elements that could tear our nation apart.
A Strong Defense
- Thailand is not an imperialistic country, but we must realize that these are dangerous times, with wars going on all over the eWorld, for this reason, AND for the reason of economic stimulation, the government of Thailand must do what it can to build op a strong defense and a well organized army. There should however be no unnecessary waste of money when it comes to this - the resources that will be used for this purpose should be limited to what :is needed to defend Thailand - not for expansionist agendas, and we should also make sure that the private (and domestic) weapons manufacturers are the ones being stimulated before resorting to governmental interference.
The Defenestration Program
At the beginning of 2009. citizen Defenestration became the new party president for the TNT, and he laid out the following goals and invitations, not only to the members of the TNT, but to all Thai citizens in the hope of bringing the Nation more together:
|“ The program, though not very detailed, can be viewed as a starting point of the political career of citizen Defenestration in Thailand, and as a hint of what was to come with the eventual reformation of the party and :the development of social democracy in Thailand.) |
TNT members, Thai citizens.
For this congress elections, we will need people who are willing to act as congressmen for the betterment of Thailand.
This is what we are going to do, and these are the things that I need your help with:
1) The creation of National Companies would give Thailand a sound base to build our economy on, and the profits that these companies make will be used to raise the wellness of our population and thus our overall productivity.
2) Furthermore, it is my intention to in connection to create a Subsidy Group, made up of trusted officials who will look into giving promising new businessmen governmental support in starting up new companies.
These two initiatives are aimed at creating a good balance between a private and public sector, and give a good incentive to citizens to move to Thailand - we will make them see that Thailand is “The Land of Opportunity“, where everybody gets a chance and where no one is left behind.
If you are a TNT member, or indeed just a Thai citizen and think that these ideas are good ones, and that you would want to help bring them about - join the TNT, run for congress and write to me what position within such a framework you would like to have.
Yours truly ”

Mass Exodus of TNT Members
On January 4, 2009, the TNT president and the favored Thailand presidential nominee, Antonio Salgado, dropped out of the presidential elections despite the predictions of many that he would easily sweep them. Antonio moved to the northern region of Brazil and was followed by many of the members of TNT party. A total of 12 Thailand congressmen left their terms unfinished to follow Antonio to Brazil. However, Antonio vowed that he would return to Thailand one day.
