THE CONSTITUTIONAL PARTY
To form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity in a healthy and sustainable environment
MANIFESTO

We must work harder to create a more perfect union...

Our slave-era, 1789 Constitution shapes the broken politics that paralyze our government: It mandates unequal represen­tation in the Electoral College and Senate and facilitates gerrymandering.

A 21st century update to a government designed before the telegraph is sorely needed!

We must have fact-based, one-man, one-vote elections. Our government must be streamlined and restructured to discourage partisanship and spur constructive compromise. We must bind our echo-chambered society together again, preserve our core values, and help the common good win over narrow interests.

The Constitutional Party will lead a Constitutional Convention to amendments that better protect and promote a free, opportunity-driven society, one that can be more tolerant, more unified, and more competitive in a technology-driven, globalized world.

Human Capital-ism will guide its domestic policies — treating each citizen as worthy of investment to become the most well-informed voter, the most healthy and wealthy taxpayer, and the most contributing member of society that he or she can be.

Pragmatic Leadership will guide its foreign policy — advancing peace and prosperity with military, moral and economic strength.

The Constitutional Party will stand not for larger or smaller government, but for smarter and more efficient government! It will strive to revitalize the American Dream for all our citizens.

The Constitutional Party welcomes disaffected Republicans and Democrats into a capable team committed to that end!

Rebuilding a Government of, by, and for the People

Several billion dollars and prominent leadership will be needed to displace our duality of failed political parties in Congress, the Presidency and statehouses nationwide. Macron in France did this; we can, too! Here, only a commitment by America's philanthopic billionaires, leveraged by popular contributions and activism, can make this real; and that will come only after they are driven to realize that saving American democracy from self-destruction is the worthiest charity of all!
A step-by-step plan for convincing them of that is under development. Help is needed.
