Why We Need a New Political Party

By Mark Hamilton

Founder of the Twelve Visions Party

We see the century-long trend: the Democratic Party and the Republican Party have become all about gaining political power. Therefore, today I introduce the Twelve Visions Party, a new political party that reverses the century-long power-grab by making politics only about protection and not about power.

I will begin by saying: There are ostensible qualities I love about the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, from which rises the Twelve Visions Party:

Let’s start with the Democratic Party:

I love the Democrats’ idea of tolerance, acceptance, and protection of all races, religions, and social classes. The problem, as I pointed out before, is that our political parties supplant their good original intentions with a thirst for political power. So, the Democratic Party’s tolerance and love for people has transmogrified into a grotesque power-play to win groups…to win certain races, religions, and social classes or voting segments of our population, which has led to extraordinarily damaging consequences. For example, democrats push for extensive entitlements for those voting segments, in essence buying their votes. Those entitlements are now sinking America into mind-boggling debt. Those entitlements are bankrupting our children’s futures.

The original, beautiful idea of tolerance, acceptance, and protection of all people, of minorities and all religions and the unprotected ‘little guys’ inspired me and my Twelve Visions Party idea. In order to protect even the smallest of minorities, my Twelve Vision Party idea introduced the fundamental, natural law of protection — the Prime Law. The Prime Law protects the smallest of all minorities: the individual — a minority of one. It protects everyone equally and does not favor a group or significant voting segment of the population. Therefore, the vote-gathering power-play is not available for democrats. Thus, the Democratic Party hypocritically and shamefully has no interest in the protection of the smallest of all minorities — the individual. That responsibility instead falls on the Twelve Visions Party. In the end, the old party’s ostensible quality of tolerance, acceptance, and protection of everyone, which I fell in love with, has been used as a trick to gain votes and political power at our expense. Now, the Twelve Visions Party with the Prime Law of Protection captures and enforces the original, beautiful idea of tolerance, acceptance, and protection of everyone…without tricking people for votes and political power.

Now let’s shift to the Republican Party:

I love the Republicans’ idea of fiscal responsibility and limited government. The problem, as I pointed out before, is that our political parties supplant their good original intentions with a thirst for political power. So, the Republican Party’s fiscal responsibility and limited government (when in power) transmogrified into fiscal irresponsibility and government empowerment…into a grotesque power-play to buy or pander to groups or voting segments of our population, which has led to extraordinarily damaging consequences. For example, republicans when in power push for elaborate spending sprees (and for mandating morals) that please voting segments, in essence buying their votes. Those spending sprees now contribute to America’s insurmountable debt. Those spending sprees are now bankrupting our children’s futures.

The original, beautiful idea of fiscal responsibility and limited government inspired me and my Twelve Vision Party idea. In order to truly limit government, my Twelve Vision Party idea introduced the fundamental budget of limited government — the Protection-Only Budget. The Protection-Only Budget funds only the fundamental, prime purpose of our government — physical safety and protection, which includes military, intelligence, domestic security, justice, courts, prisons, police, veterans. The Protection-Only Budget protects everyone equally and does not favor a specific group or voting segment of the population. Therefore, the vote-gathering power-play is not available for republicans. Thus, the Republican Party hypocritically and shamefully has no interest in the Protection-Only Budget and its massive reductions that would immediately wipe out the deficit and eventually the debt. That responsibility to limit government and eradicate the debt instead falls on the Twelve Visions Party. In the end, the old party’s ostensible quality of fiscal responsibility and limited government, which I fell in love with, has been used as a trick to gain votes and political power at our expense. Now, the Twelve Visions Party with the Protection-Only Budget captures and enforces the original, beautiful idea of fiscal responsibility and limited government…without tricking people for votes and political power.

The Prime Law of Protection and the Protection-Only Budget capture the beautiful, original intentions of the Democrats and Republicans while removing the hypocritical tricks and power-plays. In many ways, the Democrats and the Republicans have become the same: their drive for political power has supplanted their original intentions. Indeed, when in power they are both spending away our country’s future, sending us into mind-boggling debt, bankrupting our children’s future. Soon, there will be nothing left if we stay with those two old political parties. The answer is the new Twelve Visions Party.

With the TVP National Platform, Make All the People Rich, Including the Poor, I announce the birth of the Twelve Visions Party. The Prime Law of Protection and The Protection-Only Budget are the two pillars that hold up this new party. They manifest the original beauty behind the two old parties without the lies, tricks, and power-plays that destroyed those beautiful original intentions.

If you ask me why the beautiful original intentions of Republicans and Democrats — those original intentions of fiscal responsibility/limited government and tolerance/acceptance/protection of all people — why those beautiful intentions have instead bankrupted our country, I will tell you that the answer comes down to the steadily rising rule of man in America. Rule of man — flaw-filled man — craves political power and promptly establishes a ruling class. For two-hundred years, the rule of nearly flawless law — our Constitution — has been steadily weakened by the rising rule of man…by federal judges, congressmen, presidents, bureaucrats, journalists…a strengthening ruling class thirsty for political power and control.

The rising rule of man and his strengthening ruling class of Democrats and Republicans have severely damaged this country. Ordinary people are suffering. The Twelve Visions Party is here to reverse the rising rule of man and eventually eradicate it and its destruction of government and country. The Twelve Visions Party recognizes a very unique opportunity to rapidly and radically turn this economy around. Whereas people’s wallets suffer greatly under the rising rule of man in America, the Twelve Visions Party sees a unique opportunity to arrest the rule of man and its suppressive ruling class in order to free the geniuses of society to make everyone prosperous, including the poor! Make All the People Rich, Including the Poor, the premier (and timeless) National Platform of the Twelve Visions Party, opens the mind-space to visualize a Twelve-Visions World.
