We believe there’s a better way, a way to win that which we and most Americans believe is right for America.
Very simply, Freedom Party America is for Americans who want real representation in congress. We have slowly come to realize that we have no real representation. We vote for and send our men and women to congress, based on what they tell us that they and their party believe and will work for. Instead, what we get is an entrenched, controlling element of both major political parties, which controls the representatives we send to Washington. That entrenched element balks the initiatives of those we have elected. Legislation that is passed in congress puts the interests of those controlling elements — global big businesses and multi-national elites — ahead of the people. Meanwhile, due to the rules of both houses of congress, the party bosses make all the key decisions, requiring their fellow party members in congress to follow suit. Those in party leadership then make excuses to their electorate while the press covers for them by making it appear that they are truly making a good fight of it, one party against the other. That is pure falsehood.
It’s hard to lose when you are the majority, yet time and again Republicans lose those battles. Conversely, it’s hard to win when you’re a minority, but we continue to see the Democrat congressional minority emerge as the victor. The Left wins either way. Something isn’t right. Our opinions count for nothing; calls to our representatives and senators fall on deaf ears. They seek our votes, but following the elections the message is clearly “please go away until the next election cycle.” They’re no longer interested in serving their electorate in policy matters.
Along with our civil liberties, even our very currency, the individual is also being lost in this progression. Our nation’s founding was concerned solely with the individual, not groups, classes or “masses”. The FPA seeks to return representation, power and freedom to the individual citizen. The FPA is set up structurally to remove the influence of “special interests” from our party members in office. In that way, and only in that way, we believe we can return control of the government to the people of the United States. In that way, we believe that we can return public policy to the meaning and precepts of our Declaration of Independence within the constraints of our constitution. In that way, we believe that we can begin to turn the United States back to its founding roots. In that way, we believe that we can place people in Washington who are truly accountable to the statements that they make and to the party’s written platform and legislative agenda. We believe that our members of congress should be “volunteers”, not careerists looking to stay forever, lining their pockets, working for their corporate cronies and setting up family political dynasties. The FPA’s aim is to initiate a return of the US government to a body governed by the people for the people. Check out “A New Party Concept” for an explanation of that formula.
