I know, I have just written about the negatives of political parties with the George Washington quote. However, given our current political structure, I don’t see another way to proceed. Perhaps we should be called Independents of the Pro American persuasion. If you think of a better name, or a better structure, please help.
In the meantime the platform of the Pro American Party is designed to foster political ideas that support the best interests of the overwhelming majority of Americans. The focus of this party is on economic issues and national security, but it will address all issues that affect our quality of life. Recognizing that both the Republican and Democratic Parties have made it clear by their actions and rhetoric that the good of our Country and its citizenry is far less important than their ideologies and special interests, the Pro American Party is formed to protect our country and citizens now and into the future.
Purpose of Government:
The highest purpose of government is to protect its citizens. Within the Pro American Party we believe in a government that not only protects us from foreign powers, but also from corporations and any other entities that have resources and means beyond those of the average citizen that, if unchecked, may act in ways that are not in the best interests of our citizens.
The Pro American Party wants the government to be as small as possible, but large enough to do the work necessary to safeguard our sovereignty. We believe we have a responsibility to future generations to safeguard our human and natural resources. Our government will be designed to ensure these resources are protected now and into the future.
Both the Republican and Democratic parties are welfare parties. The Democrats give to the poor and the Republicans give to the wealthy via corporate welfare. This party will require that everyone earns what they get…but unlike other parties, we will create the structure that allows all to be successful when they act responsibly.
The tenets of the Pro American Party will follow, but if after reading them you think we need to add one or more, please submit your idea.
