Veterans Party of America

Platform

     The Veterans Party of America has been formed to provide a viable choice for the American people. It is our goal to place solution oriented leadership into public offices around the nation at all levels of government. We are not far left or far right, but rather, we are a centrist organization dedicated to solving problems. We are moderate and inclusive. Our strength are the U.S. Veterans, their families, their friends, and our fellow citizens.

 

     It is our view that the current state of our political system has drifted away from the ideals our nation was founded upon. “Promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity,” is in the first paragraph of our Constitution. That statement serves to remind us, and our leadership, as to why this great nation was created. As leaders, our elected officials must own the problems of the office they gain from the moment they are elected. We expect and demand solutions, not excuses, from our elected leaders. They are to be held accountable for the problems they willingly inherit, or create, until the issue is resolved in accordance with, and under, the parameters set forth in the Constitution.

 

     The Veterans Party of America’s Platform will only deal with problems that can be handled by either creating or repealing legislation. Apolitical issues will not be addressed by the Veterans Party of America’s platform planks. Legislation of social issues, such as, abortion and gay rights, are unconstitutional.  They are not up for debate and guaranteed to all citizens, by the Constitution. These issues have been created to divide voters as these cannot be legislated. This platform is a living document and will be reviewed in accordance with the Party’s Constitution and By Laws in order to meet the ever changing Political Landscape of today’s world.
