Utah People's Party

…proclain liberty through out all the land….(Leviticus 25:10)

Utah, First State of Many

on October 9, 2012

The Utah People’s Party website includes a page called Origin and Purposes. This page explains that before Utah became a state, Utah territory had a political party called the People’s Party.  The article in Wikipedia that describes this historical party is called “People’s Party (Utah)” because the name People’s Party has been used elsewhere. This party bought the views of the majority of the territory’s population into public forums and into government offices at a time when those of the territory’s religious majority differed greatly from other Utahns in their views on good government.

The modern Utah People’s Party endorsed its first candidate for Public Office and elected its first party officer in 2012. The Twenty first century Utah People Party uses the historical People’s Party of the Utah Territory as a model and not any of the existing, modern parties, because we cannot out do any other modern party by imitating that party. If we aim to do a better job of nominating candidates who consistently stand for the right than other parties do, we must function in a very different way. Pages on this website such as “Introduction”, “Candidates” and “Officers” explain these differences that allow us to nominate candidates that will do a better job of standing for the right than the candidates of other parties.
When the modern People’s Party was conceived, the idea was that the United States could best be repaired from the damage caused by secularization and moral relativity by having in each state a party that would use the teachings of that state’s majority religion to bring back divinely approved moral standards and restore respect for the divinely inspired Constitution of the United States. Utah is the birth place of the idea of a party that champions a state’s majority religion and Utah is the first state to launch a modern People’s Party.
