The Party of Liberty & Reform, Prosperity & Choice
Even as the FreedomReform Party is dedicated to individual, business and national prosperity, so it is also committed to personal, corporate, and social responsibility. If Americans want better roads, more hospitals, repaired bridges, great universities, aircraft carriers and a superior military as well as affordable health care and a social safety net for the truly poor, then rising national prosperity is essential. To the freedomist, a prosperous people have developed capitalism to the point where they can afford the social responsibility of a welfare state. But thereafter expanding the welfare state into an entitlement state is socially irresponsible because the entitlement state instituionalizes legal-corruption. Building a broad national prosperity includes the citizens' responsibility to keep government costs as low as possible (below 20% of GDP during peacetime), and the government's responsibility to regulate impartially a risk-taking, free-enterprise economy with no tariffs, no subsidies, no cartels or monopolies, and no "too big to fail" corporations. This 'competitive capitalism' instead of 'corporate' or 'crony' capitalism generates a rising prosperity for the middle class so essential for the viability of a democratic republic.
As for liberty, the founding of the United States is based upon one central idea, which is at odds with the prior four thousand years of human history. The central new idea--known as the 'American Experiment'--is that an educated people in a democratic republic can be trusted to govern themselves, so increasing the freedom of individual citizens and at the same time restraining government should be the priority of a 'liberal' republic. Clearly in the 21C, the two major political parties in the United States have strayed far from the founding trust.
About 'Choice': Well, if we want to have more happiness and prosperity and freedom in people's lives, then fill their lives with choices. The first priority of a restrained government is defense; the second priority of government is encouraging competive choice. Increasing choices is related to increasing opportunities and is the bedrock of human morality. Decreasing choice is related to centralizing government which does not trust its citizenry, and such government is both anti-liberal and reactionary to the American Experiment. Government is essential and desired, but a limited government focused upon flooding citizens' lives with choices is the best kind of government to have...so long as you believe in the value of 'trust' in the citizenry and their civil society as much as, or even more than, trust in government.
