Political Theory

America's Founding Fathers had a definite political philosophy. They risked their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to defend this philosophy. Their efforts have brought us unparalleled prosperity and security.

Today, in the name of prosperity and security, we are rejecting the political philosophy of our Forefathers and exchanging it for a political theory which has shown itself incapable of providing either prosperity or security. 

Socialist nations are backward nations. Why should we abandon freedom for slavery?

American political theory is a moral theory. Our political systems have a Christian foundation; they reflect the basic moral principles that stealing, kidnapping, and killing, are immoral. Socialism is a godless political philosophy based on the principle that the State is god, and the government can steal your property, conscript your labor, and kill you if you resist. Secular Socialism has confiscated ("nationalized") hundreds of billions of dollars in property, enslaved the masses, and murdered hundreds of millions of people in the 20th century, 10,000 people murdered per day on average by socialist governments.

"Liberty under God" is a political philosophy of peace.
