The American National Party was founded on January 12, 2018 with a vision. A vision of a more patriotic America, similar in spirit to the America of the 1950s and 60s. Our color was chosen as Liberty Blue to represent our dedication to the core American values of liberty and unity.
The founding principle of the American National Party and the idea from which the party takes its name. We believe that the United States as a concept, and as a nation, is sacred. From its founding to its prosperity, the United States was long a beacon of hope in a lost world. We believe that America should take back its rightful position of leadership in the world which we have helped to shape.
A nation is not a nation without its people. The government was meant to serve the people but it has increasingly begun to serve individuals and special interest donors. The common man has been forgotten in favor of the intellectual and the elites. A government meant to serve many now serves few and yet the price to keep it running is still paid by the majority.
The party values tradition and the preservation of culture. Despite what the media will have you to believe, America has a rich and fruitful history full of tradition. While we do believe that tradition should be preserved, we believe that this can be achieved without infringing on scientific advancement.
The Amnats believe that immigration has been at the center of American politics for too long. We believe that immigration should be decreased to a steady stream to focus on more important matters like the citizens of the United States who have long been neglected in favor of faceless, nameless welfare recipients from overseas. We believe that refugees should be treated as refugees and not as permanent migrants who get a free ride past our immigration procedures.
We believe that every American is entitled to low-cost and affordable healthcare but recognize that Obamacare has failed to give America what it deserves. We envision a healthcare system more reminiscent of the single-payer systems of Western Europe.
While we do believe in States’ rights, we also see a need to prune the sprawling bureaucracy in Washington D.C. The government should maintain its current influence while drastically limiting the number of employees and agencies that it has. This way, the people will not be affected by the shrinking of the Washington political machine and they may even benefit.
We recognize the scientific fact that unborn infants are indeed human however we also recognize that abortion during the first trimester inflicts no physical pain on the fetus. Thus, we believe that abortion should be allowed during the first trimester for any reason and afterwards only for rape, incest, congenital birth defects, and danger to the health of the mother. We support Planned Parenthood as an organization but believe it should focus more on what it claims to provide.
We acknowledge that the government handles our nation’s money inefficiently and politicians use it for their own self-gain. We believe that working towards lowering the deficit should be the paramount goal of every administration until the problem is dealt with.
America has prospered during times in which we have practiced protectionism and we will continue to prosper under them. Free trade as a benefit is a myth constructed by other countries seeking to take advantage of our wealth and prosperity. If free trade were truly a benefit to us, other nations would not complain as loudly as they do whenever it is proposed that we limit our trade. Ever since World War 2 when America single-handedly rebuilt Western Europe, they have been reliant on our protection and economic aid. We aim to put a stop to this.
America should be at the forefront of all our dealings and communications with the international community. For too long we have put ourselves on the back burner and pandered to the needs of foreign leeches. We aim to put a stop to that.
The United States Military has long been a staple of our prosperity and power. The power of our military has protected us from invasion for 100 years and if we maintain it, it will protect us for 100 more.
American education while once world renowned has become somewhat of a joke. The ever expanding bureaucracy and the chokehold of the Teacher’ Unions have all contributed to the decreasing quality in our schooling. We propose a complete overhaul of the education system and the creation of a new national curriculum that is free from the grips and influence of the Teachers’ Unions.
We propose that unions which force workers to join in-order to become employed be shutdown. No one should be forced to join a union and pay it a fee simply to obtain a job. Unions were once a symbol of workplace equality but now they do all which they opposed. They deny workers jobs, force them to forgo jobs which they are otherwise qualified for and in cases where the union itself is the employer, they underpay their employees.
