Individual Rights and Freedoms

The Reform Party defends the rights of US citizens. Topics of concern include the right to:

  • vote as the Constitution provides without restrictions.
  • legally purchase and possess firearms while ensuring responsible ownership and due process as provided by the Constitution.
  • protest peacefully, without compromising public safety, and without fear of government interference.
  • worship or not as one chooses.
  • pursue and improve life, liberty, and happiness.
  • protect each citizen’s privacy.

The Reform Party supports limitations on federal government power as stated in Amendment 10 of The Bill of Rights.

The U.S. Bill of Rights - AMENDMENT X
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. (Note: The US Bill of Rights was ratified in 1791)

All rights include responsibilities. It is the government’s duty to promote the general welfare. However, when the government considers curtailing the freedoms of individuals in the performance of its duty it must be able to provide a compelling governmental interest in doing so. Examples include temporary curfews and travel restrictions. Each instance deserves consideration and must be subject to judicial review when warranted.
