It shall be the mission of this organization to
provide a new paradigm of representation for the American Family.
It will endeavor to provide leadership in the form detailed public policies,
spokesmanship in the form of public relations services,
and accountability in the form of issues and district oversight.
THE NATIONAL FAMILY
We are a nation of families.
No other social, economic, or
political model is as important as the one found in a family.
The wants, needs, and aspirations of our families hold the key to
every problem we will every have to solve, every war we have ever
fought, every issue we will ever have to address as a united people.
We experience our common history in our families as siblings, as
workers, as parents, as consumers, as
taxpayers, as grandparents, as military personnel, as breadwinners,
as policy makers, business owners, and as leaders and
representatives. The family is
our most sacred and revered model of authority. A single head of household
serves a family for better or worse just
as a democracy is meant to serve its people. A government by the
people and for the people is a government by our families and for our
However they are not represented as they should be.
It is the lack of accountable representation that has failed our
families and the problem is insidious and elusive. Taxes are
traditionally designated for our common social infrastructure, but
the collusion between big business and government circumvents any
real assignment of responsibility regardng common social/family
needs that do not produce taxes or business revenues.
Our nation will never be fully united until each and every
household in America is represented under foundational policies.
The economics of raising a family is known to all. Forces that we
sanction as consumers, as business owners, and as a society
continously impinge against family unity. Sixty-five percent (65%) of
the nation's families are single parent families, 25% are step
parents or blended families, and the remaining 10% are traditional
nuclear families. We are breadwinners, taxpayers, and consumers all
in one and major interests in these relationships do not serve to keep
our families bonded to each other much less a united nation.
The most clever and innovative ideas of American commerce come from
the world of business and finance to get the most revenues out
of the fewest workers. At the same time our common social
infrastructure is passed to government powers who are out of
touch with common social and technical possibilities. They cannot
express a vision sufficent for our smaller businesses to plan and
compete much less invest our tax dollars the way they should.
We are seen as economic units and the Judeo
Christian work ethic has been replaced by Harvard business models.
The familiy is caught in the triangle between business and
government. Real, imagined, or designated responsibility regarding who is
responsible for what is never illustrated, debated, or defined in
terms comprehensive enough to act as a standard blueprint.
Confusing, incongruent, and ineffective policies (domestic and foreign)
and lean and mean economic profit models are the rule of the day.
Without definitive policies that analyze and illustrate the economic
and social considerations that affect our families, no new program,
no new technology, no new tax plan, no new cultural shift, will reflect our
wishes or effectively unite us in a common national mission.
The only answer to the excuses passed back and forth between business
and government leaders is a comprehensive domestic and foreign policy
that is illustrated by history, drafted and defined by present
circumstances, and promoted in a populist vision for the ascendancy
of both family members as well as private and public commercial
Today our military is used as a method of replacing missing policy.
The accountability between our government policy makers and our
military families has been missing for decades. There is
no greater moral obligatioin on the
part of our enforcement leaders than that of defining policies that
are congruent and comprehensive and see to it that our military is
not used for economic or geo political positioning alone.
Concepts of national
self determination must form the basis of any
foreign policy and these policies must serve to defend our service
men and women from the battlefield itself.
When history is neglected in the analysis of any foreign relationship,
those relationships become strained under the burden of poor
communication and lack of trust. Ultimately the use of force is called
upon in an ineffective manner and the world becomes less secure. America
then becomes less respected and less able to lead the world toward peace.
Democracy is a high maintenance form of government. It takes
diligence, sincerity, vision, and courage from all of those whom
claim to have a stake in its progress. Those who claim to love this
country must begin to do the hard work
necessary to maintain its ideals and precepts. We must communicate
our values and see to it that they are represented and actualized.
Finally, we must understand that our democracy will only be as good
as our own self interests will allow and our children will inherit
the results of our actions or inactions.
We endeavor to elevate the
role of the American family to a higher positions of authority by
providing representation on the issues, policies that express vision
and demand leadership, and accountability for currently existing
