Last night Senator Sean Ross declared that he was running as an independent for Dublin south
He also expressed the hope to support other independents from other movements such as our Residents Movement for Political Change .This is great news and a welcome boost for us, now more than ever we need to organize and bring our message of change, real change to our fellow downtrodden citizens in Wicklow.
As Sean Ross says in this video clip we must help bring real change by putting new independent people with no affiliations to the current corrupt political parties, into the Dail
if we are going to deliver the necessary changes that will rid us of the deadly grip of cronyism that is strangling our nations attempts to advance into the modern age we must now grasp this opportunity with both hands and take it.
As I said in an earlier posting “You cannot have real change using the same old corrupt political parties the corrupt system has established! You must have new independent community movements that have no connections to the current corrupt political system and that have at their core values that will route out cronyism and gombeenism. For real change we must put new men and women who speak the truth and act exclusively in the interests of the people and not is the interests of outdated, clapped out political parties that have only looked after their own office holders by placing them in plumb jobs here in Ireland and elsewhere in the world”
In the following video clip Sean Ross expresses some of the very points I totally support and stand by and they would be core values for our movement .So if you agree with these points then please get involved and help us here in Wicklow to bring about real change in Wicklow politics.
With 20-30 new independents from all around the country we can at long last give the knockout blow to the corrupt political establishment that have destroyed our country and we will have a real chance to bring these criminals to justice ,isn’t it worth at least trying to achieve this ??
Please help and get involved

Is It Time to Reinvent Fairness? This December’s budget must be one of the most regressive budgets in the history of the Irish State. As a result of the proposed changes people on 85,000 to 250,000 Euro per annum will pay an additional 1-2% in tax. However, folks on 17,000 Euro per annum will pay an additional 12%. This policy is grossly unbalanced and unfair particularly when you realize that those in charge of the many 850 quangos that exist in the State are hopelessly overpaid.
For example: 1. Head of ESB: €752,568 2. Head of Dublin Airport Authority: €568,100 3.
Head of An Post: €500,000 4. Head of Coillte, the forestry commission €417,000 5.
Head of Bord na Mona (turf energy agency): €392,000 8. Head of RTE: (TV): €326,000 9.
Head of CIE (transport): €252,416 10. Head of Health Services Executive: €335,913
If these executive rates were modified and the 850 quangos abolished the savings would more that allow a faired distribution of the tax burden? Why was this not done? The current policy being adopted by Fianna Fail and the Greens seems to be pushing Irish politics further to the left as people are becoming increasingly shocked and disillusioned by the gross inequity of it all. If this trend continues, Labor, National Sinn Fein, the People before Profit Alliance, Independent Socialists and Non-Aligned Independents will form the next Irish government. This will render any real reform of the bloated State sector practically impossible and could herald more pain on an already beleaguered Irish middle class. Alternatives that could bring about a fairer taxation and a semi-state /public sector overhaul, plus banking restructure involving a new Irish commercial bank, enterprise development and focused retraining for the unemployed may not get the chance it so badly deserves.

On the subject of ever higher Taxes please take the time and look at the video clips on “The theory of the Laffer Curve”
The current government’s policy of taxing workers and business up to the gills is only going to bring about less revenue I can see this already happening .I called a plumber two days ago to give me a quote on some pipe work I was thinking of getting done he quoted me two prices one cash price and one with a receipt needleless to say the cash price quote was a good 28 % cheaper now extrapolate that throughout the country. Taxing people so much doesn’t make sense ask Michael O Leary everybody knows he wants as much profit for Ryan air as possible but does he increases the prices he charges for flights no he is continues cutting his prices. That is why his company is one of the largest airlines in the world.
I rest my case on Taxes this budget is a disaster for Ireland
Our first public meeting
These video clips were taken off our servers by persons unknown so we were able to reload them here on this page again
The Government have successfully brought private toxic gambling debts on to the backs of the bewildered taxpayers of this country .Twenty months after the financial meltdown of the banking system of this country, there has been no prosecutions, in fact the guilty have been rewarded with golden handshakes, pensions and in some cases promotions . The crisis which brought the IMF to Ireland shows no signs of abating. As we speak the full extent of the problem has not been fully comprehended. There are in effect 6 levels to the “Bad Debts” fiasco. The following calculations are based on the latest central statistics office reports, in particular the section on external borrowings by Irish financial institutions.
1. Insolvent Property Development Lending (Cost Est.: 70 Billion EU.)
2. Unsustainable Annual Government Deficits (Cost Est: 60 Billion EU.)
3. Sovereign Debt Credit Rating Collapse (Cost Est: 20 Billion EU.)
4. Insolvent Consumer Debt Lending (Cost Est : 60 Billion EU.)
5. Insolvent Mortgage Debt Lending (Cost Est: 100 BillionEU.)
6. “Off Balance Sheet: Mark To Market” Asset Value Collapse (Cost Est: 300 Billion EU.)
Total Cost to Ireland: When you add the sovereign borrowing of 80 Billion and add the cash line of 165 Billion in the banking system that currently cannot be funded independently (because the banks are bust) the total is 610+80+165= 855 Billion Euro.. As of 28.11.2010 we now here it is going to be 5.8% to be charged, but we will have to give up 17.5 billion ourselves from our national pension fund! Was this meant to be the future, handed down to out progeny? Surely it is time, once and for all, for this shambles to stop. As of this morning we are no longer an Independent sovereign Nation State. The gangster’s responsible ride off into the sunset assured of their generous pensions and perks the ordinary people of Ireland face years of austerity and severs financial stress! We demand a referendum: We are ordinary parents, citizens, with no affiliations to any of the current political parties have formed “Residents Movement for Political Change” to bring about this badly needed change.

The IMF just doesn’t stroll into a country for a chat and a cup of tea no they are here because they are our last hope of getting funds.
We were supposed to have enough funds to meet the countries needs and commitments up to the middle of next year remember? So Lenihan will have us believe he arrived this morning to find the IMF inside his office along with the Germans (that have been there since last week) anyway now that we all know that the IMF are here what are they going to do? My best guess is that they will be trashing out the conditions of a significant loan to the Irish State .The EU has already pumped 130 Billions into the toxic bankrupt banks and they cannot or won’t go any further without taking full control over the Banks at this stage because the derivates and other huge losses that still remain hidden from the public with the help from the Department of Finance are not been acknowledged. These losses must be in the tens of Billions and the Irish State does not have the earnings capacity to meet its obligations under the blanket guarantees given to them by the incompetent Irish government. The EU was not and is still not aware of the total figure that these losses will amount to and that is one of the reasons we have the IMF in the Department of Finance today they do not trust the figures coming from Cowen or lenihan and they have decided to come and check things out for themselves. So where does leave us? Well I expect to see the rest of the banks Nationalized with the funds made available to the Irish Government and the government will be at pains to tell us the gullible public that this is just a loan from friends and nothing has really changed except we are in a better financial position as a result of their tremendous efforts on our behalf. There will be no mention of the fact that we now must ask our minders for permission to go to the toilet and we are no longer a republic but a Nation of debt servicers enslaved to the same bondholders that caused this disaster in the first place .
we shouldn’t have to wait for things get as bad as they are in this video clip
