National Party Principles

1. The National Party believes that the territory of Ireland consists of the whole island of Ireland, its islands and the territorial seas.

2. The National Party believes strongly in the principle of a Constitutional Republic, founded on individual personal freedoms, rights and responsibilities. We reject and resist a totalitarianism whose essence is found in the totality of State power and the exercise of State authority, and not the ideological direction of that totality.

3. The National Party believes that the State is the crucible and natural patrimony of the Nation. The State ought not, therefore, be the master of the Nation, but the Nation the master of the State. It follows that the State should act at all times and in every instance, in the interests of the Nation, embodied in one indivisible Irish people.

4. The National Party recognises the centripetal tendency of the bureaucratic State and its inevitable deleterious consequences in the quality and quantity of State level decision making. We therefore believe that a firm commitment to the principle and application of subsidiarity must be a central tenet of Government at every level.

5. The National Party approaches our membership of the European Union from the principle of refusing to accept the threatened destruction of our Nation’s freedom, and will endeavour to restore those freedoms which have already, unjustly, been given away.

6. The National Party believes in an aristocracy of achievement within a democracy of opportunity, practised and established economically by the strong advocacy of Free Productive Enterprise. Consequently we endorse the inalienable right to the ownership of Private Property, and shall defend that right against the equally dangerous encroachment of both State Socialism and Monopoly Capitalism.

7. The National Party opposes unrestricted immigration, placing above all the preservation of national identity and culture as the bedrock of a principled patriotism.

8. The National Party insists that no law should permit the provision of Abortion in Ireland.

9. The National Party demands a complete reform of our criminal justice system, placing the protection of society from criminality as its imperative value, up to and including restoration of the Death Penalty for particularly heinous crimes.

Glad to see there is a party not just fighting the Zionist menace but also standing up for old school nationalism, would be good if these lads also organised and contested elections up North. I wish Justin and the rest of the National Party all success.

Have they a view on the language?
Do they support a language act?

Clearly they would like to promote the Irish language. But that is a small concern compared to what ireland and elsewhere is to face as soon as this business cycle reverses as it appears to have begun as evidenced in Turkey, Venezuela and Argentina for example.

I am delighted with this.

Right, are you nationalists or anti abortionists ? I would have been anti abortion, but the people have made their decision, get over it.

The country is where the battle is at, leave the moral/religious stuff at the door.

Just watching "Trump's Road to the White House", maybe the leaders of the NP should watch it.......get everyone together on the Ireland First agenda !.

Ireland First, is a good idea. America First has been successful here.

8. The National Party insists that no law should permit the provision of Abortion in Ireland.
Skipping over the fact that his historical association with Youth Defence and the anti-divorce campaign* (in 1995) make him unpalatable to most voters, Barrett has proclaimed that this National Party will be anti-abortion just months after the country overwhelmingly voted to allow it.
This is utterly bonkers.

The pro-choice/anti-abortion voting margin wasn't even close.
Failing to pass laws against the clear & explicit wishes of the electorate is not just anti-democratic, but borders on dictatorship or totalitarianism.

The people voted.
It's not up to Barrett or anyone else to override them.
No person or party with such a disregard for this most basic tenet of democracy should be allowed anywhere near the reins of power.

*His marriage broke down and he changed his mind on divorce.
Apparently, these two occurrences are completely unrelated. :rolleyes:
Barrett denies hypocrisy over divorce U-turn

Just because you are pro-abortion does not mean there can't be a party that is anti-abortion, although I do agree with you that it may put some limits on its palatability to some pro-abortion voters. As to his change of mind, even if it were to arise out of personal circumstances (which he denies), so what? People change their minds over time.

I'm not pro abortion.
I'm pro choice.
If you're pregnant with a down syndrome foetus and you decide not to have an abortion, then I'd support your decision.
However, if you decide you do want an abortion, I'd support that too.
I support choice, not force.

I've no problem with a party being anti-abortion, but one of their stated goals is to prevent passing of legislation that the public voted overwhelmingly for.

That is not just being 'anti-abortion', that's being dangerously anti-democratic.
The psychology of a party or individual who believe they have some superior authority to explicitly reject the vote of the citizenry they are supposed to govern is not a party or individual that should be allowed anywhere near power.

Not respecting the referendum result is precisely the same as not respecting a general election result.

If Barrett & the National Party can so easily dismiss the result of n transparent, open & free referendum, what else can they decide they don't want to respect ?

How will they deal with housing and the environment? They only seem concerned with money...

listen to yourself:

the psychology of a party or individual who believe they have some superior authority to explicitly reject the vote of the citizenry


and then goes on to say...


not a party or individual that should be allowed anywhere near power.


what is your psychology.. do you think you have some superior authority to think that you would stop a party taking office if elected by the people?

This is your typical liberal who thinks there should always be gatekeepers to block the wishes of the people if they don't correspond with "liberal values".. the same as the semi domestic terrorists that the DNC etc have become.

The legislation to legalise child-killing in Ireland will be in place before ever a NP govt takes office. When the NP do come to office, they can then introduce measures to stop such barbarity.
