Senator Shane Ross
show details Sep 11
Dear Senator Ross,
We are a small new community based group in Wicklow town seeking to
develop a national movement.
We are looking to change the way our country is governed.
Following your various articles on your blog, we have decided to get
active ourselves. We are not affiliated with any political party. We
are looking for a new way to get done what we deem the country needs
in terms of leadership. In this regard what we have experienced to
date has been most disappointing to say the least.
Due to the total collapse of the financial system and the inability of
the political elite to come up with viable solutions we have been
forced to take action. We have come to the conclusion that we
ourselves within our own community have to take the first steps to try
and rectify the situation even if it is only at local level for the
moment. However we believe that this attempt can be a constructive
motivation for other groups around the country, hence the posting of
our open manifesto document.
Attached please find a short description of ourselves and our
intentions. It is posted on my personal blog “Machholz Blog”.
(www.machholz.wordpress.com) the open manifesto there is for other
groupings around the country to use if they so wish. We hope it will
encourage them to work towards bringing real alternatives to the
existing “twiddle dumb and twiddle Dee” of contemporary Irish
For our first public meeting we thought it would be a good idea to
invite a well known independent economist such as your good self. The
objective would be to offer you the opportunity to present your
thoughts and opinions on the subject of NAMA, the current government’s
general banking strategy, and its consequences for the country. We are
totally bewildered at the constant stream of billions that are
apparently appearing from “nowhere” to bailout failed institutions
such as Anglo Irish Bank. It seems to us that many citizens find
themselves unable to answer many questions emanating as a result of
this financial crisis. Our community would gladly welcome the
opportunity to obtain insight and understanding from a knowledge
expert such as your good self. Accordingly we respectfully hope you
will consider agreeing to address our meeting, to be scheduled at the
end of this month.
My contacts details are below.

Apologies for not replying earlier. Many thanks for taking the time to contact me. I am afraid that I will be unable to attend as I am very busy at the moment, and will be spending the next few months tied up in publicity for a book. I wish you every success though.

Dear Senator Ross,
Thank you for your reply,
As I stated in my earlier e-mail to you, I have been following your exploits in the Irish political arena for some time and have bought some of your books.
I sometimes think I wish I was not as well-informed about the outright corruption that is taking place and the destruction of our Nation at the hands if Insiders and obvious economic terrorists.
It is with a heavy heart that I watch our beautiful country slip into the financial abyss because of the sheer incompetence of our so-called leaders.
Our Nation is facing these dangers and no one seems to be prepared to stand up in its defiance
This is one patriot who is prepared to do just that.
Resident’s movement for political change is a movement attempting to rouse the local community into action and hopefully, will come together with other like-minded communities around the country in defense of our community services, Our Homes, and our Country.
