real PRINCIPLES

We are the purple party, the bridge between red and blue. We will work together to resolve conflicts and reach consensus to further the common interests of all Americans. Our guiding principles are simple and clear:

  • Values: We believe in the hard-fought tenets that our Founding Fathers set forth as the basis of this country, clearly stated in the Declaration of Independence. That we are all created equal, endowed with certain unalienable rights, and that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

  • Facts: All discourse begins with statements that are empirically and provably true, as opposed to subjective opinion. Each individual is entitled to personal views; but to influence discourse, they must first be based in fact.

  • Engagement: Everyone has the right to be heard. We are open to all points of view, while remaining true to the goal of progress. We do not support scare tactics, bullying or violence.

  • Sustainability: Our children and future generations deserve a strong nation that provides more opportunities than we have now. Every decision that is made must have their current and future well-being in mind.
