We reaffirm the words of the Declaration of Independence, “…that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…” We maintain that the most effective government is that which is limited and closest to the people. We believe this vision is best preserved by supporting the principles below:
CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
We believe in the Constitution and the Bill of rights with its original intent as drafted by our founding fathers and call upon all elected officials to uphold their oath of office to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
LIMITED GOVERNMENT: Article I Section 8 and Amendment X
Our founders created a government of limited and enumerated powers. As our current government continually exceeds those bounds, we support the grassroots call for a Convention of States as per Article V of the U.S. Constitution to propose amendments to limit the power and jurisdiction of the Federal Government, to impose fiscal restraints on the Federal Government, and limit the term of office for its officials and Congress.
IMMIGRATION: Article I Section 8 and Amendment XIV
We believe immigration is a clear crisis of our time and support the immediate enforcement of all existing immigration laws to secure our borders and ports of entry. We also call for English as the language of the United States.
MONETARY POLICY: Article I Section 9
We call on Congress (state and federal) to pass a balanced budget and require the comptroller general of the United States to audit the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors and its banks and submit a report to Congress.
TAXES: Article I Sections 8 and 9
We believe repealing Amendment XVI is necessary to eliminate the abusive power of the IRS and bring our taxing system in line with the original intent of the U.S. Constitution.
FREE MARKET ENTERPRISE: Preamble, Article I Section 8 and Amendment X
America’s economic success has proven the principles of free market capitalism work best. We call for a halt on government programs and regulations that destroy fair competition.
FAMILY, MARRIAGE, AND GENDER: Preamble, Bible, Founders
A reverence for God with our Judaeo-Christian foundation and the strength of the traditional family are cornerstones of America. We uphold natural/traditional marriage between a man and a woman. Furthermore, we believe that gender is determined by chromosomes at birth. We stand against laws that weaken or deteriorate those values.
We affirm the God given unalienable right to life and defend that right for all, including the unborn, the elderly, and the infirm.
EDUCATION: Amendment X and Northwest Ordinance of 1787
We support the elimination of the Department of Education and returning jurisdiction to the states; with the parents having the primary responsibility for education their children. We oppose mandatory religious instruction, values clarification, and Common Core. We also oppose Washington State’s Comprehensive Sex Education and call for its immediate repeal. We support school choice with curriculum determined at the local level. We encourage the study of the Constitution of the United States and our founding documents. We believe vocational training and higher education is critical for economic vitality and believe the federal government should be removed from the financial entanglements with education.
HEALTH CARE: Preamble and Amendment X
The federal government has no authority to administer health care and we call for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and a return to the free marketing of all aspects of Health Care. The homeless, chemically dependent, and mentally ill are best served by local, community based, non-governmental and charitable organizations.
WELFARE: Preamble and Amendment X
We believe the community is best served when individuals and families are self-reliant. We support Welfare Reform that:
- moves welfare recipients into employment and off the welfare rolls,
- strengthens work ethic, promotes marriage, and provides training which leads to selfreliance in providing for one’s own family,
- and gives authority for decision-making and oversight to local communities.
PROPERTY RIGHTS: Preamble, Article I, Section 8, and Amendment X
Private ownership of property is a treasured American value that must be protected from government encroachment. We fully support the transfer of federal and public lands to states and counties for local control.
NATURAL RESOURCES: Amendment X
We advocate for American energy independence through scientific advancement of hydropower, natural gas, oil, coal, nuclear energy, water, and other viable economical forms of renewable energy. We call on the individual states to assert their right to manage their own resources wisely. We also call for the completion of the Columbia Basin Irrigation Project within 30 years.
SELECTION OF SENATORS: Article I Section 3
We believe the Constitution’s framers were correct in decentralizing federal legislative power and call for the return of selection of U.S. Senators to the state legislative bodies, as originally instituted, granting states representation at the federal level. We therefore support the repeal of Amendment XVII.
LEGISLATIVE POWERS: Article I Section I
We call for Congress, both state and federal, to take back their constitutional responsibility to write law. This should not be delegated to any other party, agency, department or bureau.
NEW STATE: Article IV Section I
We support the establishment of a new state, when needed, following constitutional requirements.
AGENDA 2030 (previously Agenda 21) Preamble and Entire Constitution
We oppose the implementation, at the county level, of the United Nations’ Agenda 2030 and its global goal of destroying our Republic.
E-VERIFY Article I Section 8
It is the duty of Congress to determine the rules of immigration; not the rules of work eligibility. We oppose E-Verify as an immigration authentication tool which is, in effect, a federal license to work. Legal status should be verified at the border point of entry.
