Welcome to the home of the Free Trade Party. The FTP
has a vision of limited "government" (self-government) consisting of voluntarily-funded providers of personal and property
security. People will be able to buy insurance from free market insurance companies who are bound
by judge-made law decided by the courts specified in people's contracts.
If the purpose of governments (states) was to secure property, providers of property
security services would be funded by property owners, NOT traders. Taxes on trade, such as Income Tax, sales
taxes and money printing that are used to fund today's government "services" cause mind-boggling economic and social
So why is trade taxed? Because the actual purpose of governments is to subsidize the political
class at the expense of the politically unconnected.
All legislation (ie. state regulation), from occupational licensing and drug prohibition
to urban zoning laws is immoral, because it is imposed by force. In a free market people can decide who their
judges will be in their own voluntary contracts. Free market courts will simply award remedies to victims, and nobody
will be busted based on statistics.
But is this too rational and too fair for the true politicians among us? Do bears go poo poo in
the woods? Was William The Bastard a bastard?
This site was last updated on January 27, 2018.
We have to eliminate systemic (structural) problems to eliminate rampant vote-buying. Our "representatives"
should be the people we vote for voluntarily with our contracts, written in the currency of our choice, to protect our
property and other interests.
"Free trade" does not refer to state-managed trade agreements, though trade de-legislation
is generally positive. Free trade does refer to trade that is free of taxes and legislation. Legislating trade
and taxing trade are not consistent with our principles.
This website is designed to affect outcomes in terms of people's freedom and prosperity by infuencing policy and contributing
to understanding. This is a "supernational" think tank, so anyone of any age or nationality can join!
Please send us an email or offer comments in the FTP Guestbook. And tell somebody about this site today, BECAUSE
your friends deserve to know.
The HTMLGear Guestbooks were eliminated by Tripod in April 2012. (Maybe they were too hard for "intelligence" to
monitor?) Anyway, we now have a new FTP Guestbook. Please throw a rock in the pond!
