The Individual Capitalist Party Manifesto
‘A logical society for independent adults’
far too long the populace have been treated as children, unable to be
counted on to prepare for their own future & seen as needing other
people to look after them. This must be stopped as the current
situation takes money from the responsible & gives to the
irresponsible, ensuring that the trend of not aspiring to a better life
& dependency on the state continues.
‘Your money to spend where you want’
will work towards the goal of a basic rate of annual income tax for all
of 10%, based on the principle that people should only be forced to pay
for essential services (the armed forces & emergency services).
This will be achieved by not allowing new long-term benefits & as
the current benefit claimants graduate from the system, taxes will be
gradually reduced. In the long term enormous savings will be made by
making all social services paid for by voluntary contributions only,
based on the principle that no-one should be forced to give money to
others. Central to this & to allow it to work, contraception &
abortions will remain freely available to all. To enable immediate cuts
in taxation all rehabilitation programmes will be scrapped.
security will only be provided to those made redundant, furthermore if
a particular industry suffers heavy losses due to unavoidable
circumstances those people affected should be supported while they gain
new qualifications to be employed in a different sector. This strategy
will enable people to stand on their own two feet like adults, planning
& preparing for their future, yet helped when circumstances beyond
their control affect their lives.
The gradual tax cuts will eventually lead to all
sold goods having a VAT rate of 17.5% (including fuel). For greater
transparency of spending, taxes will go where they are claimed to be
going: e.g. motoring taxes to be spent on road maintenance, road tax
will be scrapped & the taxes on fuel will pay for road maintenance.
save more tax burden all government pension schemes will be revised
& excepting those already retired, pensions will be given to the
individual in full & they can organise their own future stability.
All private companies will be strongly encouraged to follow this line,
providing greater freedom for all UK residents, in addition, employees
will loose all staff benefits (besides business trips) resulting in no
sick or holiday pay. To compensate, hourly rates will increase to
reflect these changes; in effect everyone will be working for
themselves, to have the freedom to spend money where they want & to
provide for their own future. Inheritance tax will be scrapped, as will
the proposed carrier bag tax.
pointless environmental ‘carbon crusade’ will be abandoned, as the UK
accounts for 2% of CO2 emissions & is irrelevant to other global
contributions & the present effect is a less competitive UK
will be free to all (except those serving time in prison) at any point
in life; however there will be no grants system. Schooling will become
voluntary so that resources are not wasted on those who will not gain
anything from school. Social responsibility is the job of parents &
as such schools will not teach pupils basic civil courtesies nor
tolerate anti-social or criminal behaviour & permanent expulsions
may be put on individuals.
academic papers that are government funded will be made freely
available to all (the people who paid for the studies in the first
place) on the respective university/universities websites.
funding will take a shift from being paid for by the law-abiding to
making prisoners work to pay for their keep (which will be made the
basic required) through labour sold to private companies, this will
benefit society & the prisoners by gaining skills. Prisoners will
be able to decide where their excess earned money goes (within reason)
e.g. may want some to go towards a family that they’re away from.
importantly, prisoners’ sentences should be made to include full
financial repayment of the victims’ court fees, any money stolen etc
during course of criminal act & lost earnings, however long it
takes, thus reducing the amount the taxpayer must subsidise. In
relation, all legal costs of a court case will be made payable by the
loser of the verdict. Criminals will be put to the bottom of all donor
lists & those who live pro-social lives will be given preference.
stated earlier, all rehabilitation programmes will be scrapped &
those addicted to drugs will cold turkey, as rehabilitation does not
NHS will be gradually replaced with private insurance schemes, the
current system doesn’t make sense in that the more you earn, the more
you pay. How is that a reflection of the likelihood of needing medical
treatment? Insurance should be based on likelihood of cashing in a
claim, just as with all other insurance schemes. (Average American paid
only $3,281 for a family policy in 2007, equivalent to around £31.55
per week, when average NI contribution in 2000-01 was £31.63).
This system will ensure less waste of other people’s money on non-essential medical resources.
Improvements to Democracy
those that pay council tax should vote (those that don’t spend their
own money have no right to say how other people’s money should be
spent). This is mainly so that criminals & various other parasitic
groups cannot vote on their treatment or for laws that would favour a
lifestyle that others have to subsidise.
bring the law-makers into touch with the lives of the people they
represent ministers will only get expenses for business (travel,
overnight stay & meals) all MP’s should pay for the all the items
that the common man does, guaranteeing a government less reluctant to
ensure the voters get what they vote for the ICP would not make any
major changes to laws or policies not mentioned in the manifesto
without a public vote. This would be done by organising a simpler
voting system to enable the public to decide on important matters.
All current enforceable laws will be placed on a government website to
enable people to understand exactly what their position is in the eyes
of the law. This country cannot be described as free if the populous
cannot explore the laws they are expected to live by & that they
have paid for!
current poverty level is a scam & ensures the government will
always need to employ people to fulfil this role. At present the level
is earning less than 60% of the median earnings, by this definition as
the people at the top get wealthier more people all of a sudden are in
‘poverty’. Conversely, if the wealthiest individuals where to leave a
lot of people would suddenly be classed as not in poverty, this
imaginary ‘poverty’ line will be scrapped & made to reflect real
poverty which fits a global definition: when one cannot afford the bare
essentials in life – a place to live, clean water & food.
Furthermore, no tax credits (lower taxes means ability to save more)
& scrapping of the current ‘Children’s Plan’ – these are parenting
issues & the government has no right sticking it’s nose into
of relations with other countries will continue, however more emphasis
will be placed on what the UK taxpayer will get out of the deal &
non-reciprocal relations will be reviewed. In relation, aid will not be
given to countries that are intolerant of freedom, or where information
shows that the people it is intended for are not receiving it unless it
is in the wider interests of the UK, which should be explained at the
time by MP’s.
No more will the rest of Europe take liberties with a lax immigration
policy – we will take no more asylum seekers & only permit skilled
workers into the country.
