Irish Social Democrats
The Irish Social Democrats was founded in September 2009 after the membership of the Irish Socialist Republican Party agreed to a change of branding to reflect their revised vision for eIreland, and to reinvigorate Socialism in Ireland which had become entrenched in political in-fighting.
Records of Elections
In the first Party President elections as ISD, Aran Tal won by a landslide despite some curious circumstances as described in his article . He resigned effective leadership in favour or Dubhthaigh immediately but retained the in-game status of care-taker President.
In the first Congress ISD stepped in without the vote management under Care-taker President Dubhthaigh and only elected 4 Congress members. 5th October 2009.
On October 5th Presidential Elections AppleMan stepped forward as ISD Candidate we lost by a good margin but this is only the start for ISD we will forget this month and try even harder for December's Presidential Campaign and may get ourselves a President seat but AppleMan's Manifesto was very strong Patton won by the popular of the people of Ireland and the party congratulate his successful 3rd Mandate..
Two Candidates stepped up to battle out for Party President on the 15th of November 2009 Starks Hayter and Ian Arbuckle both really good Candidates but Starks left for awhile so he didn't get the party members support so Ian Arbuckle won by a good margin.
On 5th December ISD chosen AppleMan as there Candidate for the Country Presidential elections, three strong Candidates where up Niall H Uaithne and John Smith 2k9. AppleMan tied with the three then reached the top spot and dragged away from Uaithne every vote kept popping in 1 by 1 very very close election and very nerve wrecking. At last AppleMan managed to hold top spot and won himself the President seat.
25th December ISD with the vote management in the December Congressional Elections they manage to get 10 Congress Candidates elected a long time since the Party had got bigger seats and they managed to tie with Irish Freedom Party with 10 seats each between the parties. A very good Christmas present for ISD ;)
5th January Elections didn't look very good for AppleMan for this month came 3rd with Moomoohead 2nd and Edana Savage elected President for the month of January. ISD wish Edana Savage a success in her term.
Irish Social Democrats
Mission Statement: We believe in making Ireland possible the greatest place to live in the world. Providing a strong army, and supporting them. Taking care of the working man, and equal opportunity for all people.
Irish Social Democrats believes in a government that is transparent. All political dealings will be publicized. If one of our own is wrong, we will point this out. We support small yet strong and reliable government that is established through branches to deal with pressing issues and in maintaining the government of Ireland. At the same time, government should be readily open to participation and communication from the every day citizen. We believe in active participation at all levels of government. It is the responsibility of congressmen/women and political parties to contribute to and aid the efforts of the Irish government. The ultimate goal of government should be to help the people and ensure their economic success, as well as safety.
Section A: Foreign Policy
Article I: War
The Military of Ireland shall be one of the greatest force in the world. We fully support deploying troops to help Sovereign nations to protect their soil from invasion. However we support the idea of sending Intelligence agency to the Nation that has made actions against Ireland and her allies to gather information to defend our allies and our soil from invasion
Article II: Funding
We will always work to fund and supply our troops. We will always work to keep military men and women healthy and outfitted with the very best gear.
Article III: MPPs
We will never support MPPs with enemy countries. We would open trade agreements to new growing nation and offer them some support and defend them from Soil invasion. However we would open MPPs to Allies that are trustworthy if necessary.
Article IV: Independence Wars
If the nation starting the war are allies of Ireland or want to be we will support them by the decision of the Chief in Command of the IDF (President) and Minister of Defence.
Section B: Economic
Article I: Citizens
We believe in the citizen getting a strong market to purchase from, and a wage friendly job market.
Article II: Businesses
We believe in the government staying out of businessman's pockets and leaving them to better our economy. We believe through capitalism and Social programs will bring wealth to Ireland.
Article III: Imports
Import taxes will be based on the demand on each product. If there becomes a need for food for example, imports will be lowered. If there is a over production, import taxes will rise to allow our own companies to sell their stock. We do believe, however, Imports are to be used as a last resort. If we cannot produce a resource, or enough of a resource, we will consider imports. We will do all we can to encourage the creation of domestic companies and we will encourage our citizens to buy Irish.
Section C: Social
Article I: Citizens
We believe all Citizens of Ireland have the right to own businesses, speak freely, carry and own weapons, practice a faith of their choosing or even no faith at all. Citizens have the right to hear the full truth, and they have a right to be equal within their government. We believe each citizen should be given an equal opportunity to succeed, and therefore must be offered aid, if they desire, in accessing forums and IRC.
Article II: Politicians
Politicians, we believe, have the obligation to represent the best interests of their country. The people must be represented, but the needs of the country must come before the wants of the people. The first job of all politicians is to work for the safety of the people in Ireland. Politicians, ultimately, are servants to the nation and her security. We believe all politicians should be active on the forums. We also like our politicians to be active on IRC.
Article III: Businesses
Businesses have an obligation to the economy: To hire citizens to work and produce for our economy. However, businesses do have rights. A business may endorse a politician, if they so wish, but any consequences from a political action comes at the risk of the business owner. They may NOT force their citizens to vote a certain way. Businesses may run freely and openly so long as they stay within the laws of Ireland.
Article IV: Military
The men and women of the IDF have the same rights as any citizen, though all soldiers must do battle for their nation when requested. All personnel must answer roll-call and deployment orders, or they will face dishonorable discharge or suspension. If a military man or woman leaves the country without granted permission from his or her officer, dishonourable discharge will be the punishment.
