Welcome to Simpol's Irish campaign!
What Simpol is, and how it works:
The Simultaneous Policy (Simpol) campaign invites citizens in Ireland, and citizens around the world, to use our votes in a powerful new way to solve global problems like global warming, financial market regulation, environmental destruction, war, and social injustice.
Cooperation among governments is essential because these problems cross national borders, and because competition to attract investment and jobs means that any government acting alone to solve them could effectively make its country economically uncompetitive, leading to inflation, unemployment, or even economic collapse.
To solve global problems, governments must act together. If all governments act together, simultaneously, everyone wins. But while they fail to cooperate, it's the markets that continue to run politics - not we, the people.
By supporting Simpol you are driving governments to cooperate. You are telling politicians that you’ll be giving strong voting preference in all future national elections to politicians who have signed the Simpol Pledge to the probable exclusion of those who haven't.
With many parliamentary seats, and even entire elections, hanging on a relatively low number of votes, even a relatively small block of Simpol supporters can make it in the vital interests of politicians to sign the Pledge - a process leading to the implementation of a range of policies to solve global problems.
This is the simple mechanism Simpol supporters use to advance the cause of global justice. It's the simple mechanism we're using to take politics back. And it works. Thanks to our supporters, these politicians already support the campaign.
So please act now by signing up as a Simpol Supporter and we'll inform your TDs or candidates. That way they'll know that they need to sign the Pledge if they want the best chance of receiving your vote.
Simpol's approach is peaceful, open, democratic, and it's free. By supporting Simpol, you gain the opportunity to
- contribute, if you wish, to the formulation of specific policies to solve global problems, and
- you join with others to use your vote in a new and effective way to drive the politicians of all parties and countries to implement those policies.
By supporting Simpol, you make yourself a part of the global political solution.
