The Constitutional Freedom Party
"If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation. The right to freedom being the gift of Almighty God, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave." ~Samuel Adams
We the people who are aligned to this Nation's Judeo/Christian heritage and founding, who believe in the true Conservative philosophy of lower taxes, limited government regulation of business and investing, and individual financial responsibility, which were framed by our Founders, and the freedoms that they and we hold dear, determine to dissolve the political bands of the two political parties which have held no respect of the people to whom they are to represent.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed only by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. The duty of a Constitutional government is to secure these rights, deriving their just power from the consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government or political party becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.
We hereby institute a new party, The Constitutional Freedom Party, which we lay on its foundation the preservation of the principles of what has made a strong America. We also adhere to the Constitution of this United States of America, a Constitutional Republic.
Patrick Henry once stated in a speech he gave in 1765 that, "It cannot be emphasized too clearly and too often that this nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians; not on religion, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason, peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity and freedom to worship here."
This message still holds true nearly two hundred and fifty years later. While this nation is comprised of many different beliefs, we value the Christian heritage which this nation was founded upon. We will not be made submissive to the secular/humanist agenda which has pushed to remove any mention of Jesus Christ or symbols thereof from the public square. We will not be made to keep quiet our God given rights when the political parties and our government demand changes, which by twisting the original intent of the Constitution, promote laws which are antithetical to our Christian beliefs and heritage.
The very reason we have such liberties in America is because of a virtuous people. Once virtue is gone, in the words of Samuel Adams, "people will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader." America was born a Christian nation. The Constitutional Freedom Party will ensure it remains a Christian Nation and will work to preserve and strengthen it by adhering to the Constitution, in the original intent of the Founding Fathers.
We believe in the words of Thomas Jefferson, "The care of human life and happiness, not their destruction is the first and legitimate object of a good government." We also hold the truth that one cannot have liberty and the pursuit of happiness if one is not allowed to have life. The Constitutional Freedom Party believes in the Right to Life. We believe that there are real choices when it comes to preserving life, and will work to preserve it at all costs. It is not the federal government's job to promote and provide federal money to industries such as Planned Parenthood which is the largest abortion provider in the nation. We will work towards ending state and federal funding for abortions. We will work to promote easier, yet safe adoption laws and encourage private sector help of women's clinics which provide services for pregnant women.
Benjamin Franklin wrote in On the Price of Corn and Management of the Poor, November 1766 the following, "I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer."
While it is not the duty of the federal government to provide through welfare programs to the poor, it is the job to promote the general welfare of the citizens. Taxing one group of people up to nearly half of their income in order to spend on wasteful programs which are subject to fraud, and keeping citizens in perpetual poverty is not what our founders had in mind when they crafted the principals and ideas of this nation. Government has too long taken on the role of provider and in essence a poorly run charity for the poor, and are spending more money that in any other time in our nation's history, yet the poor and lower middle class keeps growing.
The Constitutional Freedom Party will seek ways in which to help the poor by raising them up, to train and use their God given abilities and talents, and not by restricting and tearing down the wealthy. Those who are physically capable of working will be given aid in employment or entrepreneurial opportunities. We will seek to promote private funding through local and state communities, for charities and faith based organizations to aid the poor and needy. There are thousands of privately run organizations who have operated successfully, and we are committed to promoting these charities and encourage duplicating these efforts through local communities. The best way to combat poverty is to teach those to help themselves by education, short term help, and gaining skills to be productive. Private industry, education and charities must be allowed to work together without federal government interference to provide support and aid to help people get on their feet, or those who simply cannot help themselves. This can be achieved best through local communities, not the federal government.
Patrick Henry said, "The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government." For too long, the government of America has been reaching into the lives of those whom they are supposed to be representing. It was never meant to be the job of federal government to take care of people. It is because of the chipping away at our nation's heritage and twisting the Constitution, allowing for the weakening of our churches and strengthening an ever growing government to focus on everything which restricts freedoms, yet ignores the first duty of the government which is to keep the people safe from threats foreign and domestic. The first duty is to provide for the common defense of the nation and ensure domestic tranquility.
For too long, our government has ignored the laws of this nation, and allowed millions to come through an open border undocumented. These people broke the laws of this nation and no nation can survive if one ignores the laws and not only allow the lawbreakers to remain free, but give aid and comfort to them, to the detriment of the citizens. This cannot go on. The Constitutional Freedom Party is determined to ensure a secure border, end the practice of anchor status and end the social welfare to those who are here illegally.
The Constitutional Freedom Party is determined to strengthen our military, as we believe in the idea which Ronald Reagan promoted, "Peace through strength." We will work hard to ensure that our nation’s military, which has always been an honorable and brave force, will not be subject to social experiments. We will fight for Rules of Engagement which will allow our military to do their jobs and defend themselves in times of engagement. We will fight to provide the best and all equipment necessary which will ensure our men and women will have what they need. We will work for those who have served this nation by helping organizations and promoting those who work towards giving the best medical and health related care possible, grants and scholarships for further education opportunities, employment and housing as needed. The funding for our veterans will be found in the billions saved by ending social welfare programs for illegal, undocumented immigrants.
Thomas Jefferson is quoted, “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people." He also said, "We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt."
We the people are disgusted with the waste and uncontrolled spending of the Federal government and at State and local levels. The Constitutional Freedom Party stands on fiscal responsibility, cutting waste, abolishing government bureaucracy which have done nothing but restrain and restrict ideas and healthy private enterprise and people's livelihoods. We are dedicated to reduce the size of the federal government, reduce tax burdens, creating a flat tax and most importantly, slashing spending which has placed an enormous debt burden on all citizens for generations to come. By imposing a fiscal budget yearly and implementing overseers to ensure that no moneys are wasted on unconstitutional or unnecessary spending.
James Madison wrote, "Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties or his possessions." The long arm of government has grown in such an unrestrained way which has restricted and interfered with personal and business property rights. The Constitutional Freedom Party will work against restrictions and government regulations which have strangled our entrepreneurs and small business owners. We will fight against thug tactics of unions which are draining the life's blood of private citizens, and fight to allow freedom to work in all states.
The Constitutional Freedom Party is dedicated to upholding and protecting the preservation of the right of citizens to bear and keep arms as given under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. Again, heeding the words of Thomas Jefferson, "The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is at a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government." We also believe in our right to protect ourselves from having our rights stripped away by world governance through the United Nations, which does not recognize the Constitution of the United States.
The Constitutional Freedom Party will work to distance our nation from this world governing authority, which includes states and nations which receive millions in dollars in aid from America, yet oppose America and hate our ideals. Ours is a nation which has had the strongest and longest lasting Constitution, and we will work to preserve it at all costs, and defend it against any government or organization which seeks to dismantle or destroy it. We will also work to remove the United Nations from US soil.
Lastly, we must remember history or we are doomed to repeat it. The Founders of this nation, while not perfect men, had an amazing insight and almost prophetic wisdom in their words and their concerns for this nation. We would do well to think of the following thoughts of those who fought for and laid out real ideas for government in this nation and the people who would choose their representatives.
Benjamin Franklin wisely said, "A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is the region of ignorance that tyranny begins."
For too long, the government through the government education system, through the Department of Education has grown the size of government and ensured that those who have traveled through the system have a limited knowledge of this nation's founding, the Constitution and the intent of the Founders. America is spending more per student than at any other time in our nation's history, yet we as a nation are turning out graduates who have no comprehension of even the simple basics of reading, writing and arithmetic. The Constitutional Freedom Party is committed to privatizing education, promoting school choice and vouchers, and home education.
The ignorance of what our government's role is in our nation, what and where our freedoms come from and what liberty and freedom mean has been evident in the past election. We must promote, spread and look for others to help carry the torch of freedom and truth. We must find ways through a new media, through our local school boards, local and statewide organizations, to learn, teach, spread the truth, expose lies and opinions disguised as news and teach the next generations about the founding of this Constitutional Republic. It will take hard work, new ideas, ingenuity and planning from the smallest village, town, county and state levels. It will not be easy, but if things are worth having and keeping, they are worth working and fighting for.
Let us unite and fight to preserve the vision of the freedom that not only did our Founding Fathers have, but also the dreams of which brought more people to this nation's shores than to any other nation.
