If neither dominant party represents you, consider the Libertarian Party.


In the spirit of good definitions, determining the purpose of gov't is essential.
My definition of gov't is framed by:
  1.   The Declaration of Independence
    •   Identifies abuses committed by gov't
    •   Read the last two-thirds of this radical expression of man's yearn to be free
  2. The Constitution of the United States
  3. The Federalist Papers
  4. The Law (1850) by Frederic Bastiat
  5.   Other books that inform my principles of governing
We need to walk Thomas Paine's wise advice:
"Society is produced by our wants, and government by our wickedness;
the former promotes our happiness POSITIVELY by uniting our affections,
the latter NEGATIVELY by restraining our vices."
  – from Common Sense

We The People

We The People are unlimited. Gov't is limited.

Federal … limited

The federal gov't is a framework for the pledged sovereign states to work together, a confederation, NOT a consolidation. Duties are shared between the sovereign state (with more duties) and the federal gov't (with less duties).

The duties given to the federal government are limited and enumerated. A power NOT expressed is a power NOT granted. Final authority resides with We The People (the first words of The Constitution of The United States).

Amendment IX, We The People, is core-center of the Constitution.
Amendment X elevates the sovereign states over the federal gov't.

Consider Federalists #42 thru #47 for the proper assignment of duties given to gov't.


Conflict should be resolved locally, as locally as possible. Unresolved conflict can be brought to gov't by those directly involved. Gov't must NOT act preemptively on social issues … Federalists #42 thru #47.

Gov't establishes laws to address infringements. Each citizen and resident has freedom to pursue Life and Liberty and to legally obtain Property. Laws must thwart any who would deprive another's Life, Liberty, or Property. This is the sole purpose of Law.

Life, Liberty!, Property
