In the next General Election Direct Democracy Ireland will be the only Political Organisation/Party offering to change the system, to a more fair and accountable way of govern, something alien to this country since 1937 when the provisions of Direct Democracy were removed from the Irish Constitution. Direct Democracy is not about Left or Right politics its about People, and Direct Democracy Ireland will return the power, to where it belongs, with you the People.
What is Direct Democracy?
Direct Democracy can be defined as a form or system of democracy that will return to the citizens of Ireland an extraordinary amount of participation in the legislation process and granting them a maximum of political self-determination. A democracy in which the power to govern lies directly in the hands of the people rather than being exercised through their representatives.
The system needs to change not the Parties, Albert Einstein once said “we can not resolve our problems with the same thinking when we created them”
Imagine a system whereby the voters can vote to remove a TD or Minister It’s called recall and It is part of Direct Democracy hence the reason why Politicians fear it.
Imagine a system Whereby the voters can vote to change laws and legislation take Irish Water for example, It is part of Direct Democracy hence the reason why Politicians fear it.
Imagine a system whereby the voters can instigate a Referendum on any issue through a simple process of collecting a percentage of signatures in a certain amount of time, It is part of Direct Democracy hence the reason why Politicians fear it.
Imagine a system whereby the The government would have to operate with the knowledge that the people can change anything they are not happy with and do not approve of take the bank bail out or Irish water as examples.It is part of Direct Democracy hence the reason why Politicians fear it.
The people of Ireland don’t know their true power. We need your support
