'''Irish Freedom Party''' is a political [[party]] in {{CountryLink|Ireland}}. During its history it changed the party number once - it started under party number {{eLink|party|108|108}}, but it was deleted when Ireland was deleted. Later in 2012 IFP was re-established under number {{eLink|party|3838|3838}}.

Irish Freedom Party was a political party in Ireland. At one time IFP was a successful political party in Ireland. On December 7, 2010 the party was dissolved when Ireland was completely taken over by the [[UK]]. As a result Ireland lost all of her parties. Since then, new parties have been created.

We would strive to keeping taxes as low as possible while balancing the countries spending. The government should be accountable and produce a budget every month and stick to it. There should be transparency in government spending except for areas sensitive to national security.

November:
 +

After a PTO threat the previous month, and moomoohead's decision not to run for re-election, the party for the first time held an internal vote days before the election. Initially 9 candidates put their name forward, but it ended with 4 names on the Internal Vote. [[IamGawain|IrishGawain]]  won the vote narrowly.

[[IamGawain|IrishGawain]] went on to win the Election with 76% of the vote.

 +
December:
 +
 +
After a superb month of growth in the IFP, [[IamGawain|IrishGawain]] decided to work on his job in the Department of Foreign Affairs. Who would take over was a questioned asked by many, but no clear answer was found. Elite C was seen as the IFP's next big thing and was an all-round favourite to succeed Gawain, until, former CP of Ireland, {{eLink|citizen|5986324|Rikian1776}} entered the race. It reduced Elite C's vote but not to the extent he would lose out. It wasn't until a week to the election when {{eLink|citizen|1451390|Eamonn DeValera}}, returning Irish Citizen, put his name forward. Rikian withdrew to give Elite C as much support as possible. Both candidates had plans to re-energise and re-awaken the party, but in very different ways. One wanted to encourage youth and progress to the party, while the other believed increasing numbers and Congress members would do the job. On polling day the party made their decision. They choose youth and progress with Elite C by a huge majority.

Irish Freedom Party is a political party in Icon-Ireland.png Ireland. During its history it changed the party number once - it started under party number 108, but it was deleted when Ireland was deleted. Later in 2012 IFP was re-established under number 3838.

IFP Party Mission

Politics

The IFP seek to uphold basic human rights, to make sure everyone in Ireland has a good standard of living, and is able to preserve themselves without the need of government handouts.

Party Policies

1. We stand for Freedom and Liberty in Ireland.

2. We work to keep the party self-sufficient and Independent of government handouts

3. We work to make Ireland stronger

4. We are a real Right-Wing party

5. We support having several MU's as we believe it

6. We want only to see Ireland build a better, stronger and more secure society

7. We fully support the 'Buy Irish First' program

8. The IFP is Ireland's Shield and will be 'Looking After You'

9. We support New Citizens and in times of war will donate food and weapons to Division 1 fighters

10. The IFP believe in the power of capitalism and that a Free Market Economy will more efficiently produce and distribute goods.

11. We believe the citizen fee and minimum wage should be set at a fair level to sustain new citizens

12. We believe setting a fixed price of sale for all Weapons and Food.

13. We support multi-nationals in Ireland and that immigration into Ireland should be promoted. We fully support the Baby Boom.

14. We work closely with willing parties to make eIreland a better place.

Economy

The IFP believe in the power of capitalism and that a free market economy will more efficiently produce and distribute goods. We believe the citizen fee and minimum wage should set at a fair level to sustain new citizens until they reach level 6. We would strive to keeping taxes as low as possible while balancing the countries spending. The government should be accountable and produce a budget every month and stick to it. There should be transparency in government spending except for areas sensitive to national security.

The IFP works to Promote Irish Business and is dedicate to supporting new Entrepreneurs. We believe in the buy Irish first programs. Government intervention in business should be kept to a minimum and Freedom of choices should exist in the market. The government should assist business by providing loans to start and upgrade business. They should also provide data on business conditions around the world to give Irish companies a competitive advantage. Business should also be encouraged to start in only two strategic regions to minimize disturbances in case country is invaded.

It is the government’s job to control inflation by policy implementation. Government decisions should be made that do not dramatically increase or decrease the workforce and provide steady battles. The government should also monitor the amount of companies in each sector at each quality level to make sure there is enough completion and not an over saturation in the market place. Nationalization of companies should be used in absolutely essential cases only. The government should monitor competition and impose sanctions on any companies engaged in price fixing.

State companies should be run at full capacity, and used to provide jobs to the newest citizen in times when private companies are not hiring them. State companies should also be used to provide cross training to citizens in skills the private sector is not offering, to ensure the country has the right amount of skills. Private business should never have to compete against public enterprises. The products of state companies should be offered at a discount to new citizens.

To avoid large economic sways and create stability in the business cycle any changes to the tax system should be studied first to understand the effect and impact on industrial sector and citizens. We believe in balanced income tax verse Vat tax. Import taxes should be set to prevent foreign companies from dumping on the Irish market and driving domestic companies out of business. Import taxes should also be kept low for raw materials we can not produce and regulated for all other products to provide a strong market.

We believe in a fixed exchange rate in the monetary market. The state bank should maintain adequate reserves, tied to GDP, to fend off any attacks on our currency. Some of the national reserves should be earning interest in low risk investments instead of just sitting in the banks account.

Society

IFP are Libertarians, originally started Center-Right, but sometime in 2015/2016 they changed to full Center. In May 2018 it was discovered that they changed their orientation back to Center-Right.

Military

The IFP believe several MU's better International Relations.

After a PTO threat the previous month, and moomoohead's decision not to run for re-election, the party for the first time held an internal vote days before the election.

IrishGawain went on to win the Election with 76% of the vote.

December:

After a superb month of growth in the IFP, IrishGawain decided to work on his job in the Department of Foreign Affairs. Who would take over was a questioned asked by many, but no clear answer was found. Elite C was seen as the IFP's next big thing and was an all-round favourite to succeed Gawain, until, former CP of Ireland, Rikian1776 entered the race. It reduced Elite C's vote but not to the extent he would lose out. It wasn't until a week to the election when Eamonn DeValera, returning Irish Citizen, put his name forward. Rikian withdrew to give Elite C as much support as possible. Both candidates had plans to re-energise and re-awaken the party, but in very different ways. One wanted to encourage youth and progress to the party, while the other believed increasing numbers and Congress members would do the job. On polling day the party made their decision. They choose youth and progress with Elite C by a huge majority.
