Assuring the continued success of our great nation depends on our ability to find common ground, and our ability to stop this cycle of outrage, extremism, and division.
We believe Inclusive Capitalism is the ideal economic partner to Democracy. We reject the government dependency socialist and communist systems produce.
We believe we must protect America’s interests while supporting our allies and engaging in sensible trade and environmental agreements. Pragmatic and essential policies to promote environmental sustainability should be embraced. Fair -trade with like-minded nations is critical to our mutual success.
We believe our tax code should be simple, progressive, and fair. Excessive loopholes to avoid taxation should be closed. Productivity should be encouraged with globally competitive rates. Success should not be punished; no American should pay more in total income taxes than they can direct to their own endeavors, including charitable giving.
We believe in equality of opportunity and access for all, regardless of race, gender, faith or sexual orientation. But we seek to avoid excessive identity politics that serve only to manipulate and divide us.
We believe America's twin virtues of self-reliance and altruism are truly unique in human history and should remain the foundation of our system.
We understand ours in an imperfect history, and we embrace constructive dissatisfaction with the status quo. We believe in always striving to achieve a more perfect, inclusive union.
The Purple America Coalition is a uniquely unified group comprised of Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, and Independents. What binds us is the common objective of advancing modern centrist principles:
Create a platform for open dialogue and the promotion of modern centrist ideals
Pull the two-party system back from catering to the extremes
Exert more influence in party primaries to avoid extreme candidates and policies
Ensure that leaders from all parties who promote modern centrist ideals are properly recognized and supported
Form alliances with other platforms and organizations that share our ideals
Engage, only when deemed necessary, in individual races where the risk of falling victim to extreme, non-centrist policies is heightened
