By design, our platform will evolve through member participation. But we all share certain core beliefs which serve as our foundation:
- There must be transparency in all relevant government proceedings.
- Policy decisions must be based on empirical evidence and resolved through earnest compromise.
- Citizens throughout the country must have ample and equal opportunity to vote.
- Lobbying and election reform must be implemented to mitigate the conflicting motives of elected officials.
- Public education and universal healthcare should be the right of every citizen, not a privilege.
- As a nation of many beliefs, we must enforce the Constitutionally mandated separation of church and state.
- The preservation of our limited natural resources are a necessary priority for the sake of future generations.
- There must be a balanced budget to justify the choices we make.
