Our Foundational Beliefs

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.

Capitalism that works for everyone.

We believe Inclusive Capitalism is the ideal economic partner to 
Democracy. We reject the government dependency socialist and
 communist systems produce.

Sustainability is at our core.

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.

A tax code rooted in fairness.

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.

An America for every American.

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.

A formula like no other.

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.

More perfect union through peaceful progress.

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.

Principles of Affiliation with the Purple America Coalition.

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
