    Disgusted at our political system?
    Want more democracy?
    Tired of simply being a passenger of this rudderless ship?

    Then join the Republican Party!
    Boston.tea.party.1746.jpg

    As our party name suggests we wish to form a fully democratic country and get rid of this symbol of social tyranny; the monarchy. For too long our nation been burdened with this undemocratic institution. Our allies across the Atlantic freed themselves from their influence 200 years ago and have not looked back since.

    We aim to
    - Abolish the monarchy
    - Abolish the house of lords
    - Create a Presidential position and administration
    - Create a senate

    Of course our party isn't just about reforming the political system, it would be irresponsible to simply prioritise this in hard economic times. In order to be prosperous we must first deal with the debt. A country cannot have a strong economy if they are too burdened by debt. The Republican Party proposes that we default on these debts in a similar way as Iceland did. Of course this means we will be in no position to borrow money.

    Why borrow money? Why can't we just live within our means? Under Republican party leadership we would live within our means rather than borrowing money in order to create artificial short term economic growth. With our debt wiped out over night we will finally be able to create real growth and have real progress. Look at countries like Greece, this is the future we face under the other political parties. Our government has amassed over £1 trillion of debt yet all other parties expect us to pay that back. This is money taken from you and your children to go into the pockets of bankers. Our economy cannot grow if large chunks are being taken from it in the form of debt repayments. Look at

    We are the only serious alternative to the mainstream political parties that brought us this mess. We are the only ones that offer real change. We are the only ones that present effective ideas to change the course of our economy.

    A vote for liberals is a vote for today
    A vote for conservatives is a vote for tomorrow
    A vote for Republican is vote for today and tomorrow.

    We need 10 members to form this party. We will not be able to contest the current election but we will recruit and form a base in contention for the next election in 6 months time.

    This is an interesting idea for a party, albeit one that I would never consider joining.

    Now this is a party that could be interesting, the authoritarian stance is not well represented on TSR at all.

    I agree. Though I would support a republic, I don't agree with the rest of your policies, but I'd be glad to see an authoritarian party.

    The Republican idea is an excellent idea, but I can't support the party due to their other policies.

    An interesting fusion of republicanism and right-wing policy. I'll take republicanism but leave the rest of your misguided policy ideas.

    My main vision for the party is for it be as democratic as possible. All positions and policies will be chosen by its members. They are just some ideas I had and I would be willing to debate them with others. Another key note is the leadership position does no belong to one individual we will have a democratic primary process.

    You should take a look at the threads around the last election as i am sure that some people tried to create the Republican Party back then, you may be able to find willing members.

    That's how every other party chooses their leader on here - by a democratic process.

    Too many parties too soon -the more the better, but not at a time like this; wait till the election is over, and then try to form this party.

    We must look forward to the future and adapt to find future glories or like you we can wallow in the past looking at past glories.

    It happens every election, every man and his dog comes out of the woodwork to propose their own ideas for a party. Each as wacky and unrealistic as the last. They pretty much always fail.
