Our Platform & Issues
Who We Are
We are the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. Soldier, Sailor, Airmen, Marine, Coast Guard. Coming together once again as we did on the battlefield, to defeat an enemy that has prevented us from living with dignity and respect.
We are the Enlisted, Warrants and Officers who served to protect this country during all its hours of darkness. We took an oath to protect this nation against all enemies both foreign and domestic. We were never told to forget that oath, and we truly believe that our job is not done.
We are the Grandmothers, Grandfathers, Mothers, Fathers, Husbands, Wives, Sisters, Brothers, Children, Grandchildren, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins of those who served and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. We will not forget them and we will not let this Nation forget or abandon them.
We understand that Veterans are both liberal and conservative and there are items we may not agree on. We all took an oath to protect this country and I don't remember anyone telling us to forget about it when we left service. Sometimes we must do what is right for our country. Once again just like when we were all on active duty, we will work as one, a team, that will go forward to accomplish our mission, our differences will only make us stronger.
We Veterans are “We The People”, we are the government, we are the ones who put life and limb on the line to protect, keep and lead this nation to freedom during its darkest hours. Our families have also sacrificed and endured losses other families should not go through. We have earned the right to protect, keep and lead this nation during peacetime as well. Veterans have taken an oath to protect this country from enemies both foreign and domestic. To keep free, ALL American Citizens, not just “some” corporations or political elite. Our party understands the issues and responsibilities of taxes, employment, health care, education, farming, industry, environment, social security and family values.
We Believe:The expressions: “Veterans First” and “Veterans Preference” should actually mean something.. To give Veterans and their families everything that they have earned and were promised. If this nation is truly grateful of its Veterans, then they should give Veterans the respect that they have earned. To ensure that ALL Americans are fed, clothed, educated and cared for before we send ONE American Dollar to feed, clothe, educate and care for those of other countries. To grant FULL concurrent receipt across the board, without compromise to ALL military retirees. To return pride of nation and Patriotism back to all Americans.
The Issues presented here are items we are all concerned with. They are not from one state or one person. They are issues to be discussed before written as legislation. We are growing and we are learning new things everyday. If you see something that you would like to add your opinion on, please do so. And as we discuss the smaller details of each issue, please remember that the main objective is to return this nation back to its rightful place in the world.
On our web site you will find that the word "Veteran" is always capitalized no matter where it is in the sentence. We believe that it is a title of honor and respect. We also believe that it should be passed by both house and senate that this become law. We will call it the "Veterans Initiative". And until such time as it comes to pass, political titles will be in lower case.
Some things take more time than others. Even though all our founders agreed upon change the first was to declare their presence. In the document that starts; "We The People", our history shows our Constitution was approved on July 4th, 1776. Now that they were established, they began to prepare the next important document, "The Bill of Rights", also referred to as the first Ten Amendments. These rights were discussed for a period of time prior to them being ratified. It was not an overnight decision, in fact, it took 15 years to complete, 1791. It is the same with the Veterans Party of America, we must first be recognized as such. The following words and this entire website will mean nothing, if we do not work together and build the Veterans Party of America to where it should be.
Issues concerning a religious or moral nature should not be a political football being tossed around while throwing dispersions at others. Therefore, once again we say that this issue be discussed at your place of worship and in your home and should not be a part of the political arena.
