Some Principles of the People’s Party

  •     On one hand Freedom of Religion, on the other Separation of Church and State–these are two different concepts, Freedom of Religion being the correct concept taught by our Founding Fathers.
  •     All good things come from God, so good government must come from God and morally valid rights must come from God.
  •     Morality and Constitutionality are distinct concepts, morality referring to eternal, universal, and objective principles, constitutionality referring to the will of the general citizenry expressed by their approval of a constitution.
  •     Living a morality correct life is essential to the happiness of each person, both now and forever.
  •     It is a moral principle that just political power can only come from the consent of the Governed.
  •     A State or Federal Constitution can properly serve as the formal, official statement of the powers the governed consented to let their government have only when that constitution is interpreted according to original intent.
  •     Both moral principles and constitutional provisions limit government and only by respecting both types of limits can government achieve full legitimacy.
  •     The Constitution of the United States of America sets up a federal system in which there is a  government for each state and a general government over all the states, the general government being responsible for defending each state from invasion or other attack and the individual state governments being responsible to govern the people within their own borders.
  •     Officers of state governments are bound by oath or affirmation to support the constitution not the government of the United States, and this oath obligates state officers to reject acts of the general government that conflict with the U.S. Constitution.
  •     The duty of the citizens and of the legislators is to make the law of the land conform to moral principles and to any applicable constitution.
  •     The best possible political party is completely owned and controlled by active, dutiful citizens, not by members of the ruling class.
  •     A political party is about candidates not about a platform because only a political party can put candidates on the ballot but any type of organization can produce a document that states positions on individual issues.
  •     The most good, wise and honest citizens should fill the politically elite positions, both as leaders within the party and as leaders within government.
  •     Because the most good, wise, and honest citizens are humble rather than prideful, they will not step forward and compete for or claim the elite positions so their follow citizens must seek them out and draft them to serve in the elite positions.
  •     While all citizens are equally obligated to work to achieve good government, it is those of the majority religion who have the votes needed to restore God to his rightful place in our public life and hence it is the those of the majority religion of each state to whom the People’s Party appeals to join this party and use active participation in this party to fulfill your duties of citizenship.
