Irishmen and women this is an article I wanted to write yesterday morning but waited until today so I could not be accused of trying to influence the election.
Also please note these are my own views and not necessary those of my Party or its members.
However I would be surprised if what I say is not felt by other eIreland citizens.
My subject is the matter of the conduct of one Party in yesterdays Congress/Dáil elections.
In my opinion the offering of inducements to gain votes (other than moving expenses) is contemptible.
"Welcome to official channel of Irish Progressive Party - "UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL!" || PARTY PAGE: http://www.erepublik.com/en/party/irish-progressive-party-3462/1 || CONGRESS ELECTIONS: GET HERE IN 09:00 EREP TIME TO GET INSTRUCTIONS FOR WHO TO VOTE AND TAKE YOUR CHRISTMASS PRESENT WITH YOU - 5 Q6 WEPS AND 100 IEP "
Is this what we've sunk to?
I tell you now I would rather lose than do that!
I commend the job the IPP has done in the last few weeks building their Party up to now the 2nd largest Party (at time of writing one off the top spot) but how they misjudged the ethical implications of this move I don't know.
MUFC92 may claim only one person took the offer and, whether people believe him or not, we now have questions about all his elected Congressmen. Some very worthy Congresspeople among them who may baulk at my words.
Hell if he increases the "Bribe" he might get the last few Congressmen he needs for a majority.
I call on all honest Citizens of this country to have nothing to do with this practice and never again to reward its use.
