6 reasons to vote for Sinn Féin in this election


1.  Sinn Féin has shown that there is a better way.  We were the only party not to sign up to the government's consensus for cuts and instead put forward a real costed alternative for economic recovery.

2.  Sinn Féin would reverse cuts to public services and social welfare introduced in Budget 2011. We are the only party to clearly state that we would do this.

3.  Unlike the other parties Sinn Féin would stand up to the IMF and EU. Sinn Féin is an Irish republican party. We are a United Ireland party. We believe in the sovereignty, independence and freedom of the Irish people and the right of our people to build our own society.

4.  Every TD elected for Sinn Féin will mean a stronger voice for working families, the unemployed and all those struggling to survive. The more Sinn Féin TDs elected the louder the voice for those they represent in the Dáil.

5.  Sinn Féin stands up for ordinary people.  Over the last year it is our party, which confronted this government and demanded higher standards. For us, actions speak louder than words.   Sinn Féin was the only party to oppose the Lisbon Treaty, pointing out the dangers for our sovereignty.  Sinn Féin forced the government to hold the Donegal SW by-election, exposed the Taoiseach's contacts with leading people in Anglo, is the only party not to sign up to the Fianna Fáil / Green Party / Fine Gael / Labour consensus for cuts and instead put forward a real alternative for economic recovery.  Sinn Féin TDs only take home the average industrial wage.

6.  Sinn Féin will change politics and put an end to cronyism.  Reform must start with the Dáil.  That means cutting TD's wages and expenses. It means changing how the Dáil business is done so the Government can be held to account.  We would abolish the Seanad in its current form
