America’s Founding Fathers proclaimed inalienable rights and accompanying responsibilities in the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Federalist Papers. They sought to bequeath a nation free from tyranny to their posterity, where our people could live in peace. These rights can only exist with our willingness and ability to protect them.
For too long, our Republic has been undermined by politicians who knowingly deceive our people and disregard our will. The Republicans and Democrats have systematically collaborated in an effort to impose unwanted change on our nation. These “Republicrats” have coerced our people by limiting political choice, showing their disregard for the sacrifices of our forefathers. The American Third Position honors their accomplishments by cherishing the Republic the created. In keeping with this tradition, A3P is becoming a major proponent of proportional representation at all levels of government.
Known as the Father of the Constitution, 4th U.S. President James Madison believed that “factionalism is bad, but it can be ameliorated if there are many factions (political parties) instead of just two.” Madison wrote of the “security afforded by a greater variety of parties…In an equal degree does the increased variety of parties comprised within the Union increase this security.”
