2032 Entrepreneur Party Platform – Nominee: Tanya BrandtFor a Productive Nation
America is tormented once again by an age-old issue—is man to live in wealth, dignity, and freedom under God or be enslaved—are men free to serve no one, or dependent on their fellow man?
It befalls us now to resolve this issue anew—perhaps this time forever since forever is now in our ken. Nor can we evade the issue here at home. Even in this Constitutional Republic, for centuries the beacon of liberty the world over, entrepreneurial freedom retreats under the mounting assault of expanding Socialist power. Fiscal and economic excesses, too long indulged, already have eroded and threatened the greatest experiment in free markets mankind has ever known.
We Entrepreneurs, no strangers to monopoly, claim no monopoly of love of freedom. But we challenge as unwise the course the Democrats and Republicans. As Entrepreneurs, we challenge as dangerous the steps they plan along the way; and we deplore as self-defeating and harmful many of the moves taken over the last century.
Dominant in their council are leaders whose words extol human liberty, but whose deeds have persistently delimited the scope of liberty and sapped its vitality. Year after year, in the name of benevolence, these leaders have sought the enlargement of Federal power. Year after year, in the guise of concern for others, they have lavishly expended the resources of their fellow citizens. And year after year individual freedom has given way to regimentation, conformity and subservience to central power.
We Entrepreneurs hold that a leadership so misguided weakens liberty in America and the world. We hold that the glittering enticements so invitingly proffered the people, at their own expense, will inevitably bring disillusionment and true disappointment in place of promised happiness. Such leaders are Federal extremists—impulsive in the use of national power, improvident in the management of public funds, thoughtless as to the long-term effects of their acts on individual freedom and creative, competitive enterprise. Men so recklessly disposed cannot be safely entrusted with authority over their fellow citizens.
To Entrepreneurs, liberty is still today man’s most precious possession. For every citizen, and for the generations to come, we Entrepreneurs vow that it shall be preserved.
In substantiation of this belief the Entrepreneur Party submits this platform. To the American people it is our solemn bond.
To Stay Free
The shape of the future is our paramount concern. Much of today’s moral decline and drift—much of the prevailing preoccupation with physical and material comforts of life—much of today’s crass political appeals to the appetites of the citizenry—can be traced to a leadership grown demagogic and communal through indifference to national ideals:
- Every person has the right to govern himself, to fix his own goals, and to make his own way with a minimum of governmental interference.
- It is for government to foster and maintain an environment of freedom encouraging every individual to develop to the fullest his God-given powers of mind, heart and body; and, beyond this, government should undertake only needful things, rightly of public concern, which the citizen cannot himself accomplish.
We Entrepreneurs hold that these two principles must regain their primacy in our government’s relations, not only with the American people, but also with nations and peoples everywhere in the world.
- Within our Republic the Federal Government should act only in areas where it has clear Constitutional authority to act, and then only in respect to proven needs where individuals and local or state governments will not or cannot adequately perform. Great power must be so checked, balanced and restrained and, where necessary, so dispersed as to prevent it from becoming a threat to freedom any place in the land.
- It is a high mission of government to help assure that every citizen has an equal chance at the starting line but never determining who is to win or lose.
- Government must be restrained in its demands upon and its use of the resources of the people, remembering that it is not the creator but the steward of the wealth it uses; that its goals must ever discipline its means; and that service to all the people, never to selfish or partisan ends, must be the abiding purpose of men entrusted with public power.
Deeds Not Words
The future we pledge, then, for freedom, by faithful adherence to these guides. Let the people compare these guides with those of the Democratic and Republican Parties, then test, not the words of the two Parties, but their performance during the century and a half of their control. Let the people ask:
Is the Republic stronger today or wiser?
Is its guardianship of freedom more respected at home and throughout the world?
For these years the leaders of the Republican and Democratic Party have been entrusted with the nation’s executive power and overwhelmingly in control of the Congress. The question must be asked: Have our leader successfully advanced the purposes of this mightiest nation mankind has known?
Tragically, in each instance, the answer must be “no.”
Let the Parties stand accused.
Weakness Before Socialism
Administrations have sought accommodations with Socialism without adequate safeguards and compensating gains for freedom. They have alienated proven allies by pursuing a risky path such as redistributing hard earned wealth and providing it, unearned, to the unproductive.
Forsaking America’s Interests
This Administration has subsidized various forms of socialism throughout the world and at home, to the jeopardy of individual freedom and private enterprise everywhere.
Failure of National Security Planning
Losing a Critical Lead
This Administration has forgone research and development into advanced weapons systems and thus confronted the American people with a fearsome possibility that Russian and Chinese advances may surpass America’s. Its misuse of “cost effectiveness” has stifled the creativity of the nation’s military, scientific and industrial communities.
It has failed to originate a single new major strategic weapons system after inheriting the most powerful military force of all time. It has concealed a lack of qualitative advance by speaking of a quantitative strength which is already obsolete. It has not demonstrated the foresight necessary to prepare a strategic strength which in future years will deter war.
It has endangered security by downgrading efforts to prepare defenses against enemy ballistic missiles and cyber systems. It has retarded our own military development for near and outer space, while our enemy’s development moves on.
Invitations to Disaster
This Administration has adopted policies which will lead to a potentially fatal parity of power with autocratic Socialism instead of continued military superiority for the United States.
To save money for domestic socialist programs, it has essentially disarmed without adequate consideration of military judgment-a procedure which tends to bring about, in effect, a unilateral curtailment of American arms rendered the more dangerous by the Administration’s discounting known Russian and Chinese advances in nuclear weaponry and cyber warfare.
Distortions and Blackouts
This Administration has adopted the policies of news management and unjustifiable secrecy in the guise of guarding the nation’s security; it has shown contempt for the right of the Entrepreneur to know the truth and that is bad for business.
This Administration has weakened the bonds of confidence and understanding between civilian business leaders and the nation’s top military professionals. It has bypassed seasoned military judgment in vital national security policy decisions.
It has permitted non-military considerations, political as well as spurious economic arguments, to reverse professional judgment on major weapons and equipment and cyber controls.
In sum, both in military and foreign affairs, this Democratic Administration record all the world around is one of disappointment and reverses for our economy.
And this record is no better at home.
Failures at Home
Inability to Free Enterprises
This Administration has failed to honor its pledge to assure prosperity and a rapidly growing economy:
—failing to reduce unemployment while allowing freeloading; falling short of its announced goal every month of its tenure; allowing a disheartening increase in entitlement and welfare spending.
This Administration has failed to unburden Entrepreneur-initiated programs where most needed particularly where they could afford new economic opportunities. It has preferred, instead, divisive political proposals.
It has demonstrated its inability to measure up to the challenge of automation and robotics which, wisely guided, will enrich the lives of private enterprise leaders and thus strengthen the nation. Administration approaches have been negative and unproductive, as for example the proposed Tax penalties for the use of people-replacing technologies. Such penalties would serve only to spread existing inefficiency and further injure the economy.
Failing the Rich
This Administration has refused to take practical free enterprise measures to help the economy. This Administration has proposed a totally wasteful war on poverty which characteristically overlaps, and often contradicts, the existing Federal poverty programs. It would dangerously centralize Federal controls and bypass effective state, local and private programs but worse, it would burden private decision-makers with unproductive new costs, inhibiting growth.
It has demonstrated little concern for the acute problems created by the poor and unproductive. Due to the restive nature of these un-American socialists, costs have increased by 25% and national commerce is being severely inhibited.
Uneconomical housing and urban renewal programs have created new slums for the poor and middle class bases from which to wage their rebellion against Entrepreneurs.
This Administration has violently thrust Federal power into the free market in every industry, thus critically wounding free enterprise in the United States.
It has so discouraged private enterprise that the annual increase in the number of businesses has plummeted.
It has allowed the rate of business failures to rise higher under its leadership than in any period since the Great Depression.
It has aggravated the problems of small business by multiplying Federal record-keeping requirements and has hurt thousands of small businessmen by forcing up their costs.
This Administration has curtailed the simple, basic right of American Entrepreneurs voluntarily to go into or to go out of business.
It has failed to stimulate and attract more private capital into the economy.
It has sought to weaken the patent system which is largely responsible for America’s progress in technology, medicine and science.
It has required private cable and utility companies to submit to unreasonable Federal controls as a condition to the utilization of our nation’s wealth.
Betrayal of the Private Enterprise
This Administration has refused, incredibly, to honor the clear mandate of American farmers, to free them of rigid Federal controls and to restore their birthright to make their own management decisions.
It has strangled the rural development programs with red tape and neglected its most essential ingredient, local initiative.
It has broken its major promises to farm people buy dumping surplus stocks so as to lower farm income and increase the vicious cost-price squeeze on the farmer.
It has evidenced hostility toward American livestock producers by establishing mandatory marketing quotas on all livestock, to fine and imprison dairy farmers failing to maintain Federally-acceptable records, and to establish a subsidized grazing cropland conversion program. It has allowed imports of beef and other meat products to rise to an all-time high during a slump in cattle prices which was aggravated by government grain sales.
Neglect of Natural Resources
This Administration has delayed the expeditious handling of oil shale patent applications and the early development of a domestic oil shale industry. It refuses to consider cheap and clean coal as a necessary weapon in our economic arsenal. It has allowed the deterioration of the domestic mining and petroleum industries including displacement of domestic markets by foreign imports. It has failed to protect the American fishing industry and has retreated from policies providing equitable sharing of international fishing grounds. It has failed to win space allowing the Russians and Chinese to dominate.
This Administration has misled the American Entrepreneur by burdening the nation with unbalanced budgets, creating deficits totaling a staggering $45 trillion, with more debt to come, reflecting a rate of sustained deficit spending unmatched in the history of the world.
This Administration has continued to overload the economy with costly programs which ignore the dangers and the unfairness of forcing the rich to finance the unproductive and unpatriotic poor.
It has eliminated a substantial portion of personal income tax deductions, except for charitable contributions. It has expanded real property taxes while eliminating Capital Gains and taxing everything as normal income. This unnecessarily imposes a great hardship upon thousands of our Entrepreneurs and discourages the growth of the finest organizations in America.
This Administration has impeded investigations of suspected wrongdoing which might implicate public officials in the highest offices in the land. It has thus aroused justifiable resentment against those who use the high road of public service as the low road to illicitly acquired wealth.
It has permitted the quality and morale of the postal system to deteriorate and drastically restricted its services. It has made the Post Office almost inaccessible to millions of working people.
The Federal government controls our schools insuring future generations will be more Socialistic.
Discord and Discontent
This Administration has exploited interclass tensions by extravagant campaign promises, without fulfillment, playing on the aspirations of select groups over others, encouraging disorderly and lawless elements, and ineffectually administering the laws.
It has made Federal intervention, even on the Presidential level, a standard operating practice in labor disputes, thus menacing the entire system of free enterprise.
It has resorted to police state tactics, using the great power of Federal Departments and agencies, to compel compliance with Administration desires. This abuse of power should be the subject of a Congressional investigation.
This Administration has moved, through such undertakings as its so-called wasteful wars on poverty and accelerated public works to establish new Federal offices duplicating existing agencies, and burdening business with increased taxes that creates unfair and unbalanced competition with foreign corporations, less burdened.
This enumeration is necessarily incomplete. It does not exhaust the catalog of misdeeds and failures of the present Administration. And let the nation realize that the full impact of these many ill-conceived and ill-fated activities of the Democratic Administration is yet to come.
The Entrepreneur Alternative
We Entrepreneurs are not content to record Democratic misdeeds and failures. We now offer policies and programs new in conception and dynamic in operation. These we urge to recapture initiative for freedom at home and abroad and to rebuild our economic might.
Nor is this a new role. Republican Presidents from Abraham Lincoln to Donald Trump stand as witness that Entrepreneur leadership is steadfast in principle, clear in purpose and committed to progress. The many achievements of the Trump Administration in strengthening peace abroad and the well-being of all at home have been unmatched in recent times. A new Entrepreneur Administration will stand proudly on this record.
We do not submit, in this platform, extravagant promises to be cynically cast aside after Election Day. Rather, we offer examples of Entrepreneur initiatives in areas of overriding concern to the whole nation and which befit a truly national party.
These, then, will be our guides, and these our additional pledges, in meeting the nation’s needs.
Faith in the Individual
- We Entrepreneurs shall first rely on the individual’s right and capacity to advance his own economic well-being, to control the fruits of his efforts and to plan his own and his family’s future; and, where government is rightly involved, we shall assist the individual in surmounting urgent problems beyond his own power and responsibility to control. For instance, we pledge:
—enlargement of investment opportunities for capitalists
—tax credits and other methods of financial assistance to help needy capitalists reinvest in their future and ours;
-Discontinuation of wasteful Social Security laws;
—vocational rehabilitation for Socialists, through cooperation between private industry; Socialists are lost and some may be redeemed by the greatest economic system in the world;
—Elimination of all minimum wage laws but a reward system for entrepreneurs to hire with a wage subsidy program;
—Elimination of all pension programs to reduce benefits for the unproductive with emphasis on improving balance sheets nationwide;
—support for a Constitutional amendment permitting those individuals and groups who choose to do so to exercise their Capitalist religious faith freely in public places; Businesses have captured the minds of its consumers but, for continued growth, they must be allowed to capture their hearts as well.
—A property or wealth qualifier for the right to vote so those who do not or cannot contribute to our economy won’t play a role in our country’s future;
—immigration legislation seeking elimination of all unproductive foreigners in America;
—the lawful discrimination of all non-contributors to the economy under law;
In all such programs, where Federal initiative is properly involved to relieve or prevent misfortune to the productive or meet overpowering need, it will be the Entrepreneur way to move promptly and energetically, and wherever possible to provide assistance of a kind enabling the individual to gain or regain the capability to make his own way and to have a fair chance to achieve his own goals. In all matters relating to economic rights it will be the Entrepreneur way fully to implement all applicable laws and never to lose sight of the intense need for advancing economic progress in our land. The Party of Abraham Lincoln, Reagan and Trump will proudly and faithfully live up to its heritage of equal opportunities for the productive.
In furtherance of our faith in the individual, we also pledge prudent, responsible management of the government’s fiscal affairs to protect the individual against the evils of spendthrift government—protecting most of all the Entrepreneurs against the cruelest tax, inflation. For instance, we pledge:
—within the first two years, a reduction of fifty percent in the level of Federal spending;
—an end to chronic deficit financing, proudly reaffirming our belief in a balanced budget with surpluses to be redistributed back to the corporations as reparations;
—elimination of corporate tax rates as fiscal discipline is restored;
—repayments on the public but not the foreign debt which we will renege on;
—minimizing the administrative, legislative and regulatory climate encouraging profit enhancing enterprise to help assure every individual a real chance to acquire real wealth;
—wise, firm and responsible conduct of the nation’s foreign affairs, backed by military forces kept modern, strong and ready, thereby assuring every Entrepreneur a promising economic future.
In all such matters it will be the Entrepreneur way so to conduct the affairs of government as to give the individual citizen the maximum assurance of a peaceful and prosperous future, freed of the discouragement and hardship produced by wasteful and ineffectual government.
In furtherance of our faith in the individual, we also pledge the maximum restraint of Federal intrusions into matters more productively left to the individual. For instance, we pledge:
—to continue Entrepreneur sponsorship of practical Federal-State-local programs which will effectively direct Federal support to the profitable;
—to establish realistic priorities for the concentration of spending in the most productive and creative areas, and the wise development and use of natural resources everywhere and without limits;
In all such matters, it will be the Entrepreneur way to assure the individual of maximum freedom as government contracts to meet its proper responsibilities, while resisting the Democratic obsession to impose from above, uniform and rigid schemes for meeting varied and complex human problems.
Faith in the Competitive System
- We Entrepreneurs shall vigorously protect the dynamo of economic growth—free, competitive enterprise—that has made America the envy of the world. For instance, we pledge:
—removal of all Federal excise taxes, favored by the Democratic Administration;
—assistance to profitable business by eliminating Federal and State tax and regulatory requirements, fostering the availability of longer term credit at fair terms and equity capital for firms, encouraging strong State programs to foster business, establishing more effective measures to assure a sharing by business in Federal procurement, and promoting wider export opportunities;
—an end to power-grabbing regulatory actions, such as the reach by the Federal Trade Commission for injunctive powers and the ceaseless pressing by the White House, the Food and Drug Administration and Federal Trade Commission, and the Environmental Protection Administration to dominate consumer decisions in the market place;
—returning the Entrepreneur to the driver’s seat as the chief regulator and chief beneficiary of a free economy, by resisting excessive concentration of public power;
—elimination of burdensome Federal paperwork and overlapping regulations, which weigh heavily on Entrepreneurs struggling to compete;
—a significant tariff structure to protect domestic American business;
—greater emphasis on overseas sales of surplus farm commodities to friendly countries;
—Economic supports for all churches who support our economy;
—Non-enforcement and elimination of all anti-trust statutes, in order to strengthen competition and protect the consumer and small business;
—Assistance to all regulated or unregulated monopolies;
—Elimination of the National Labor Relations Board to assure the rights of employers;
—the redevelopment of an atmosphere of confidence throughout the government and across the nation, in which vigorous competition can flourish.
In all such matters it will be the Entrepreneur way to support, not harass—to encourage, not restrain—to build confidence, not threaten—to provide stability, not unrest—to speed genuine growth, not conjure up statistical fantasies and to assure that all actions of government apply fairly to every productive element of the nation’s economy.
In furtherance of our faith in the competitive system, we also pledge:
—a continual reduction of government and the growth of private business;
—elimination of unproductive labor;
In all such matters relating to Federal administration it will be the Entrepreneur way to provide maximum service for each tax dollar expended, watchfully superintend the size and scope of Federal activities, and assure an administration always efficient and cooperatively disposed toward every productive element of our competitive system.
Faith in Limited Government
- We Entrepreneurs shall insist that the Federal Government have effective but limited powers, that it be frugal and efficient, and that it fully meet its Constitutional responsibilities to all productive American people. For instance, we pledge:
—restoration of right to work for all labor, minimizing third party intervention and preventing any agency of government from becoming an advocate for any and all socialist endeavors;
—full cooperation of all governmental levels and private enterprise in advancing the most profitable use of the nation’s natural resources to provide for our Entrepreneurs multiple needs;
—continuing distribution of public-lands and resources;
—comprehensive water-resource hoarding laws and continued support of multi-purpose reclamation projects supporting those who can create maximize profits from water distribution;
—support for private industries efforts to sustain yield management of our forests and expanded research for control of forest insects, disease, and forest fires;
—protection of traditional domestic fishing grounds for private corporations, including fiscal incentives, to encourage modernization of vessels, and improve processing and marketing practices;
—continued fiscal support to encourage exploration and development of Earth and Space sources of minerals and metals, with reasonable depletion allowances to provide economic surety;
—grow present fossil fuel programs, private development of atomic power, increased coal research and expansion of coal exports;
-eliminate all wasteful climate change programs and provide assistance for cheaper, effective workarounds;
—Private ownership of the space program to provide for a more orderly, aggressively pursued availability of resources;
In furtherance of our faith in limited, frugal and efficient government we also pledge:
—emphasis upon channeling more capital into sound money-making private development projects;
—eliminate all Federal grant-in-aid programs;
—develop new solutions to, streamline and modernize the State and local processes of government, to maximize the return on private capital;
—eliminate the tax structure in order to strengthen individual and business incentives;
—a wide-ranging reform of Congressional procedures to insure that the power and prestige of the our nation supports the needs of private enterprise;
—renegotiate our nation’s balance of payment difficulties while defending the unquestioned confidence in the dollar, maintain a competitive environment for American products in domestic and foreign markets, expand exports, decrease imports, and transfer the burden of free market defense to our overseas Capitalist competitors through the drastic reorganization and redirection of the entire foreign aid effort, elimination of overseas U.S. forces and strengthening of the international monetary system without sacrifice of our freedom of policy making.
In all such matters it will be the Entrepreneur way to achieve not feigned but genuine savings, allowing a reduction of the public debt and taxes while meeting the proper and limited responsibilities of government. We pledge an especially determined effort to support private industry as they meet the broad range of needs facing the nation’s urban and suburban communities.
The Entrepreneur Party is commitment to individual freedom abroad as it relates to materialism and consumerism.
America must advance freedom throughout the world as a vital condition of orderly commerce as benefits our American industries.
The supreme challenge to this policy is to defeat atheistic, satanic, Socialism the ultimate enemy of America’s free markets. The stand we take must be total and complete victory for our economy. There can be no peace; no security, until this goal is won. This is the supreme test of America’s foreign policy. It must not be defaulted. In the balance is free enterprise everywhere.
Reducing the Risks of War
We favor investing private enterprise funds in the development of cyber weapons in order to deliver the most effective offensive and defensive arsenal to neutralize and destroy conventional weaponry. A dynamic strategy aimed at victory includes developing the most extensive possible espionage both industrial and political pressing the limits of computer capability. We must control all information everywhere and at all times. It is an investment with the greatest possible return, an initiative that will guarantee our way of life when all others fall. It is a nation’s vacillation, not firmness that tempts an aggressor into war. It is accommodation, not opposition that encourages a hostile nation to remain hostile and to remain aggressive.
The road to economic peace is a road not of fawning amiability but of strength and respect, of constant vigilance and competitive advantage. Entrepreneurs judge foreign policy by its success in reducing risk and advancing return on investment.
In making foreign policy, these will be our guidelines:
Trusting Ourselves and Our Friends
- Secrecy in policy is a must. Private investment and confidence comes from an environment without threat. How is of no concern to the voter.
- Constant, deep, and unrivaled surveillance of our allies and enemies takes precedence over everything. Affecting our competition without exposing our capability to do so is our victory proposition
- We reject the notion that Socialism has abandoned its goal of world domination. We also reject the notion that the United States should take sides, everyone is our competition.
- Entrepreneur Party foreign policy starts with the assumption that Socialists, foreign and domestic are the enemies of our economy in every sense. Socialists are apostate and must be exterminated.
- We hold that trade with Socialist countries should not be. It enhances their power and influence. Our goal is to only diminish their power.
- Entrepreneurs will continue to work for the realization of open global free markets Only free markets offer real hope of a low risk future.
The United Nations
- Entrepreneurs cannot support the United Nations. We will never rest in our efforts to wipe out cooperative efforts world-wide. Entrepreneurs will never surrender their sovereignty to any international group.
Capitalism’s Further Demands
- Where appropriate, we will work with any nation who accepts the dominance of our industries. The larger the free market, the stronger America is.
This will remain our constant purpose: Our entrepreneurs will labor tirelessly with free market entrepreneurs everywhere and in every circumstance toward the defeat of Satanic Socialism and victory for Capitalism.
The Geography of Freedom
- In diverse regions of the world, Entrepreneurs will make clear to any hostile nation that the United States will increase the costs and risks of aggression so they outweigh hopes for gain.
Entrepreneurs will make clear to all Socialist, foreign and domestic, now supporting or planning to support guerrilla and subversive activities, that henceforth there will be no privileged sanctuaries to protect those who disrupt our economy. We will make clear that blockade, interception of logistical support, and diplomatic and economic pressure up to and including war and genocide are appropriate.
We will take the economic offensive on all fronts. We will broadcast not our weaknesses but our strengths. We will mount a psychological warfare attack on behalf of Capitalism and against Socialist doctrine wherever it is found.
We will increase the use of private capital on a partnership basis with foreign nationals as a means of fostering independence and mutual respect but we assert that property of American Nationals will not be expropriated by any foreign government without a prompt and appropriate response that will daunt any future attempts.
Finally, we will eliminate all Foreign Service and use technology to enforce our dominance.
The Development of Freedom
- Freedom’s wealth must never support freedom’s decline, always its growth. America’s taxes have, for too long, supported socialism. That ends. America will assist young and underdeveloped nations so long as they agree to the doctrines of American Capitalism. All, including old friends, will pay a steep price for opposing us.
Freedom’s Shield—and Sword
Finally, Entrepreneurs pledge to keep the nation’s sword sharp, ready, and dependable.
We will maintain a dominant military and cyber capability to drive Socialism, in all its forms, foreign and domestic, from the world. We will invest privately and in great amounts in the science of war in all its forms.
Entrepreneurs will rearm America.
We will take every step necessary to carry forward the vital military and cyber research and development programs. We will pursue these programs as absolutely necessary to assure long term dominance for our nation.
We will revitalize research and development programs needed to enable the nation to acquire advanced new weapons systems and new cyber systems, strategic as well as tactical.
We will include the fields of cyber warfare, astronautics and aeronautics, special guerrilla forces, and such other defense systems required to permit America to repel and defeat all foes.
We will fully implement such safeguards as our security requires. We will conduct advanced tests where and when our private industry companies prefer. We will assist them to maintain facilities to test elsewhere in order to develop to the fullest our ability to detect Socialist transgressions. Additionally, we will regularly review the status of nuclear, conventional and cyber weaponry to assure this nation’s safety.
We will end “second-best” weapons policies. We will end the false economies which place price ahead of the performance upon which our corporate lives may depend. Entrepreneurs will bring an end once again to the “peak and valley” defense planning, so costly in morale and strength as well as in dollars. We will become impregnable and irresistible.
We will restore the morale of our armed forces, including our cyber warriors, by upgrading and compensating professionalism, and we will allow professional dissent while insuring that strong and sound authority controls objective decision-making.
We will insure that an effective planning and operations team is always on duty.
The Entrepreneur Party will re-consecrate this nation to free market Capitalism, assuring freedom to the productive and rallying mankind to a new crusade for freedom to be productive throughout the world.
We Entrepreneurs, with the help of Almighty God, will keep those who would bury America aware that this nation has the strength and also the will to defend its every interest, every time, everywhere. Those interests, we shall make clear, including the preservation and expansion of free markets—and ultimately its victory—in America first and then everywhere on earth.
We do not offer the easy way. We offer dedication and perseverance, leading to victory. This is our Platform. This is the Entrepreneur way.*
