What's your favorite Polish political party?

Personally I like Platforma Obywatelska because they have sound ideas:
- Privatizing many public sector operations, including health care.
- A 15% flat tax.
- Decentralization to regional governments in Poland.
- Keeping the Zloty.
- Educational reform.
- Making Sejm smaller and removing parliamentary immunity.

Ireland became the "Celtic Tiger" once it deregulated its economy and cut taxes, I think Poland should do the same.

i like how speaks that Jan Lopuszanski of that Polish Catholic political party.

What`s the name of his party?

But, it`s hard to tell me which Polish political party is my favourite. Polish Peasant Party (PPP) also, from time to time, has interesting approach

Yeah, I definitely like PiS as well. I prefer PO, but PiS overall has a good economic and crime fighting platform, though I disagree with some of their ideas (i.e. keeping ZUS).

Isn't Lopuszanski simply one of the heads of LPR or something?

- Privatizing many public sector operations, including health care.

Hardly possible. Privatization of health-care in their vision would cost us even more. They would still tax us heavily and additionally tell us to pay "some undefined amount of cash" if medical help is needed. Privatized hospitals (for example) would still deal with government and such contacts create corruption.

- A 15% flat tax.

This is their old election slogan, that they already abandoned. Later I heard about higher flat tax rate (21% ?) and this would cost average Pole more than today.

- Decentralization to regional governments in Poland.

Actually they are transferring competences of national government to Brussels. Thus this is rather EU-wide centralization.

- Keeping the Zloty.

They want to bring euro, just with little delay (2012). They don't raise this topic often, because it would not attract many voters.

- Educational reform.

What reform? They wont change much more than canon of books that students need to read obligatory.

- Making Sejm smaller and removing parliamentary immunity.

Smaller Sejm? No way, this mean lesser posts for their people. About the immunity, every opposition always raise such idea but when they are in power their desire decrease.

He is rather out of politics.

PiS overall has a good economic and crime fighting platform

They are socialistic about the economy. Their tendency to extend bureaucracy causing a lot of corruption. When PiS run Poland, they created Anti-corruption Bureau. One of the most pathetic ideas I have ever heard. However perfectly fits to their mentality:

Bureaus can fix every problem!

LOL ! One could think that after almost a year of running the country, they should have something more than "ideas".

of that Polish Catholic political party.

Polish Peasant Party (PPP)

My suspicion is that these two parties supported serbian claims on Kossovo.

I would tell you something, man. I am absolutely positively fascinate with Polish Catholics. You know what is Serbian expiriance with Croatian Catholics, their pro-German attitude and all about that...

But, Catholics of Poland are keepers of Polish heritage. Their representatives are in the same time modern and traditional.
