The Reform Party SUPPORTS the Principles Established in the United States Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence as our guiding principles for the rights of our citizens and for defining the scope of our Government.
Supporting Constitutional Rights means that we recognize that the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence were primarily written with a basic premise in mind: governments, by their nature, limit freedoms. In the best of circumstances, they limit freedoms in specific circumstances to ensure one person’s activities do not infringe on another’s freedom. In the worst of circumstances they limit freedoms to serve the interests of the ruling class, whoever that may be. The primary purpose of our founding documents was to act as a brake on the consolidation of power in the hands of the government and to protect those freedoms that we are born with.
