    Dr. Richard Dawson, Thomas Ericsson and Senator Hillary Clinton have all been granted associate membership to the EPA. Welcome to the European Progressive Alliance.

    Councillor Poppy Carlton-Romanov III is already a full member of our caucus, so her application is unnecessary, although we welcome her again nonetheless!

    We unfortunately reject Councillor Francis J. Underwood at this time, because we do not find his beliefs and political leanings to be compatible with the beliefs of our caucus.

    Nation: Golfia
    Name:
    Party affiliation: Civic Platform
    Ideology: Liberalism, Liberal conservatism, Economic liberalism, Pro-Europeanism, Golfian nationalism, Monarchism

    Positions
    - As a conservative liberal party, the Civic Platform wants to protect
    civil liberties and individual responsibility. CiP calls for mutual tolerance of people with different opinions and self-identities, entrepreneurship, social responsibility, the rule of law, and participatory democracy.

    - The party believes that an open society and economic freedom are more conducive to prosperity, and greater economic and social stability, rather than a redistributive and regulative state. CiP wants more freedom of choice rather than restrictions in all areas of private life. According to the party's stance, self-responsibility and competition should dictate the actions of individuals, rather than bans. CiP wants to ensure that personal initiative is rewarded and not restricted by paternalism. Start-ups, particularly by young people, are to be encouraged.

    - CiP works toward a society offering genuine opportunities with flexible choices in education, work and family support. It is also aiming at more and better jobs, a sustainable social welfare system which will result in strong national cohesion that counteracts see the divergence of society. This includes stabilizing premium costs in the healthcare sector and combating the abuse of social welfare systems, but also intergenerational equity. The motto of the party in matters of social security is: "Solidarity where it is necessary" and "self-reliance where it is possible". As a profitable investment for the future of society, CiP wants to promote the highest quality education at all levels, since it considers human capital the most important resource of Golfia. It considers innovation as a crucial asset for prosperity and wants to improve the position of Golfia as one of the leaders of innovation.

    - The party stands for a simple tax code, low taxes, and for tax competition among the cantons. It calls for a more citizen-friendly state without excessive bureaucracy and excessive regulation, and for a lean state with lower government spending, which offers only those services which citizens and the private sector cannot provide. The party, which calls for a competitive and sustainable market economy, wants to strengthen Golfia as a financial and economic hub with as little government interference as possible. It also calls for the reduction of public debt and fiscal deficits. In general, it believes that tax incentives are better than subsidies in creating incentives. The party sees in the current financial crisis an opportunity to carry out financial and tax reforms quickly to improve situation of companies in Golfia. The main objectives of energy policy are security of energy supply and increasing energy efficiency. The party wants to support the research of alternative sources of energy for electricity production which generate no carbon dioxide. Despite this, it is against a carbon emissions tax.

    - The party supports neutrality, federalism, direct democracy, and the tax sovereignty of each canton. It believes that national security should be credibly guaranteed by a skilled and strong military. The party is for a "cosmopolitan Golfia", which benefits from the opportunities that globalization provides. CiP supports Golfia's current EU membership. The immigration policy of the party is based on the integration of immigrants, requiring clear and effective rules by means of an "integration law". CiP calls for consistent action against abuse of laws in Golfia by immigrants, and in repeated cases calls for deporting foreign criminals in accordance with international law. CiP wishes to as well instate the possibility of life without parole for the worst crimes and to establish a public register of convicted pedophiles.
    CiP has also emphasized a desire to crack down on abuses and crimes of which the elderly are particular targets. CiP supports a peaceful foreign policy, which increases the security of Golfia and prevents an increasing number of refugees.

    - The party is in principle in favor of legalized consumption and (regulated) commercial production of marijuana to encourage safe and legal free enterprise as opposed to a costly war on drugs. CiP emphasizes personal and family responsibility over life choices as opposed to making such choices a state power, which is clearly shown through the party's other liberal stances towards other "hot" topics such as prostitution, euthanasia, abortion and same-sex marriage.

    - CiP advocates a cultural policy that would strengthen support for traditional Golfia's traditional cultures (which are Polish, Hungarian, Romanian and Kashubian) including traditional craft, folk music, folk dance groups and the Christian churches while opposing state funding of immigrant cultural organizations and festivals. The party supports the current modern constitutional monarchy in Golfia "with full accordance to democratic procedures and current laws" as well as promoting the monarchist conception among Golfians and other people of the EU.
