We agree with the Founders’ belief that our government’s purpose is to protect individual liberty and maintain a free, prosperous, and orderly society. We absolutely oppose the centralization of all power in the Executive branch; also oppose a Judiciary that makes rulings which creates or modifies Congressional law, rather than merely ruling on such law(s) that the Legislative branch has made. These are usurpations of the power of the House of Representatives and the Senate.

We affirm that where governments exist, they must not violate the inalienable rights of any individual. The Constitution of The United States is the law of the land. As such, there shall not be a requirement for any individual to hold a Veteran status, or hold any affiliation with the military or any installations to be a member of the Veterans’ Party Of America, the Veterans’ Party of Florida, hold office, or candidacy.

Section IV.03: Parliamentary Procedures shall be governed by the By Laws.

Section IV.04: Dues, when levied, shall be uniform. The amounts and collection times shall be set forth in The Party’s By Laws.

Article V: Certification:

As an officer, or member, of the Veterans’ Party Of Florida, I hereby certify from my actions of either accepting nomination to office, or becoming a member of The Party, or both, that: “I affirm that all people are created equal and are endowed with certain inalienable rights.
