ZIMBABWE FIRST POLITICAL PARTY

MANIFESTO

Our Vision

Zimfirst is the political party that will transcend petty personal politics and pointless abuses of power to build a strong, free, and democratic Zimbabwe through the electoral process. The policies of Zimfirst are essential if we are  to overcome the present turmoil and create a sustainable and fair future for our country. Our vision is of a fairer society that meets everyone’s needs, and an economy that works for us rather than against us. It is for a more equal society. For higher incomes for public servants rather than corrupt ministers. For stronger local communities and quality education for children. For healthier, safer, and better food and the quality time to appreciate it. For a natural world left to itself. This dream is achievable. All it requires is political courage – and popular democratic support backing that courage. Zimfirst is necessary to overcome rampant inequality and corruption, to modernize the economy through deregulation and laissez-faire policy. Only Zimfirst can enact the lessons learned from the past financial crisis. This party has a vision for Zimbabwe that will see a better quality of life for everyone.  Zimfirst will build a free society with a government that enacts the will of the people instead of catering to the whims of the powerful. Our government should be eternally fearful of the will of the people and forever restrained by the limits of the constitution which governs it.

We emphatically reject the tenets of any political system or form of government or political idea that sets one person above another, that limits the freedom of the individual for the “greater good”, or attempts to convince any individual that they have no rights or fewer rights than the rights man is endowed with by their Creator. We boldly declare that in our society, the checks and balances in our government includes the individual, private organizations such as businesses or churches or political groups, and federated governments such as the local, state, and federal governments. By distributing the power to govern among these people, organizations, and governments, no one person or group of people is able to obtain much power over the rest.

We also declare that the bounty of this world has plenty to provide for all if the individual is freed from the constraints of government to enable to seek his own fortune in life. The man who has obtained wealth is capable of providing charity to the poor, jobs to those who want them, and also to pursue the critical role of participating in politics to keep government constrained. We encourage all men, everywhere, to embrace their freedom and seek their own fortunes. Once they have obtained it, they have the right to spend their time and resources as they see fit in service to their fellow man, without the entanglement of an intruding government.

UNITY
