Why is the Family Party posting this standard of principles and values? 

My Answer:  The Family Party recognizes the social desire expressed as ‘we need’  begins with ‘I am’.  From where ‘I am” we build identity, family and  a society which can thrive and endure. Principles and values in action and expression are the core manifestation of character.  Without people of character we have no foundation for family.  Without families we have no foundation for a cohesive, vital, creative society.

Religious and political entities  are providing their contribution to this effort to create a better society..   However, the Family Party recognizes the social desire expressed as ‘we need’  begins with ‘I am’.  From where ‘I am” we build identity, family and society which can thrive and endure.

If you have difficulties with any two of the principles, that is fine.  With honesty, sincerity, graciousness, responsibility (response able) and humility let’s engage in the expression of our position and understanding.  Having done so, we both grow in charity, hard work, moderation and courage.  Now, we’re on the way.


9 Principles

1. America Is Good.

2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.

God “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the external rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” from George Washington’s first Inaugural address.

3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.

Honesty “I hope that I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to be the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” George Washington

4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

Marriage/Family “It is in the love of one’s family only that heartfelt happiness is known. By a law of our nature, we cannot be happy without the endearing connections of a family.” Thomas Jefferson

5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

Justice “I deem one of the essential principles of our government… equal and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political.” Thomas Jefferson

6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness “Everyone has a natural right to choose that vocation in life which he thinks most likely to give him comfortable subsistence.” Thomas Jefferson

7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

Charity “It is not everyone who asketh that deserveth charity; all however, are worth of the inquiry or the deserving may suffer.” George Washington

8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

On your right to disagree “In a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude; every man will speak as he thinks, or more properly without thinking.” George Washington

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

Who works for whom? “I consider the people who constitute a society or a nation as the source of all authority in that nation.” Thomas Jefferson
