read a checker game into socialist and human rights
concerns by blanket contributors.
king wants to jump numerous times. Bad concepts, some
which may be British intelligence inspired, create
an analysis that concludes defeat by failing to give
a hundred percentage to a pragmatic potential for
Concepts like not voting, not getting people registered.
Protest votes, other national parties at the present,
and anything else that would deter Sinn Fein from
getting as much political power as possible is a setback
and counter productive to what should be primary.
Only after an election with a nationalist majority
and a union with the Republic can the concepts of
disagreement and socialism be argued at the polling
places. Sinn Fein itself should not really be alone.
It may well be that in a United Ireland, Sinn Fein
could become a secondary party being a majority in
the North. That would not be bad in that all parties
would have to appeal to the electorate for success.
Any vote now for anything but Sinn Fein is a wasted
vote. It is a vote Downing St. is looking for.
In his article about Belfast and the world Anthony
McIntyre has his king and jumping the gun. Belfast
is still British. One has to get the house off the
landlord, fix it up and pay it off before one can
help the neighbors. This doesn't mean you can't send

Tom Luby and Liam O'Comain have good ideas, but, they
should be reserved for a later time. Liam writes about

opinions. Positive ideas of nationhood have merit.
No one is certain of any outcome.
Instilling hope for success is far better, at this
point in time, than negativity. The socialist goal
is really a masked idea of moving the poor and working
class to a middle class life style as the norm. Condemning
capitalism doesn't paint the picture that only greedy
and dishonest corporate managers are the problem and
not the system itself. Reforms such as limits of compensation
and more loyal concern for stockholders are what are
There will always be some poor and disenfranchised.
The goal should be to greatly diminish the numbers
and then be better able to deal with less of a problem.
What will develop is a democratic state with social
justice allowing every citizen to a potential protected
by strictly enforced laws and regulations.
Sinn Fein is on a roll. Keeping the wheel greased
and oiled will help it roll smoother and faster. The
concept of getting out the vote for Bobby Sands is
proof that Sinn Fein can win bigger in the future.
With concentrated voter registration and voting incentives
the dream of Irish unity can be achieved. Other ideas
