"The men and women were casually dressed, polite and friendly.… When the topic is 9/11 and the ‘official story’ told by the government, they all speak and think with an impressive unanimity of opinion and with an equally impressive sincerity.”

The Three Simple Virtues

Here at the Truth Party, we are about three simple virtues:

  1. USA Peace Leadership,
  2. Peace Economics,
  3. Freedom from Lies

1. Peace Leadership

It's time for the USA to become the leader in peace. We should be the top expert in non-violent conflict resolution. We should stand for the science of advanced human communication. This is our true legacy as Americans: Martin Luther King, and Cesar Chavez, who showed that nonviolence is more effective than violence.

In your critical thinking, remember what is good about America:   

         The first country to put the ideals of the Enlightenment into practice.
         We were the first complex representative democracy.

The core mission of the USA was originally to be the first "Anti-War Nation." Jefferson said, "If there is one principle more deeply rooted in the mind of every American, it is that we should have nothing to do with conquest."

The first of five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment prevents any one religion gaining state support. Freedom of religion was guaranteed because the Founders wanted to avoid the bloody European religious wars that had been raging since early 1500.

The First Amendment therefore has a bias toward Peace and Freedom. It’s time for progressives to act like prophets, and return America to the original promise, the original covenant we made with History, at the Enlightenment.

2. Peace Economics
The war economy has bankrupted our country. The dollar is in decline, and the Chinese, who own a big chunk of our debt, are getting nervous. Stay on the path we are on, the dollar will collapse.

We need to audit the Federal Reserve. We need something better: new Public Interest banks to capitalism more democratic. A Federally-funded Public Interest Capital Bank could directly fund progressive and green entrepreneurs. This would be a real economic stimulus, and show an innovative way some market mechanisms can be used in the service of the public.

3. Freedom from Lies
Despite Obama's promises, the Federal government relies on deception and subterfuge. The Iraq War, 9/11, Anthrax, the “triple suicide” at Guantanamo Bay, rendition, and torture, are all crimes against humanity that need full investigation, and prosecution of the guilty. It’s the right thing to do.

Our empire is an empire in crisis, expanding abroad, but bankrupt at home. The USA aches for answers, and they will come from me, and you, through this new political formation, the Truth Party.

Look not just at American history for its slavery, the theft from the Natives, and the current imperialism. Never forget America’s contributions: democracy, the internet, jazz, hip-hop, and rock and roll.

What’s next? What are the next big ideas from our country, for the world?

These are the things that will save us and save the planet:

USA Peace Leadership,
Peace Economics,
Freedom from Lies
