Our Letter To The American People

Government is a trust, and the officers of the government are trustees. And both the trust and the trustees are created for the benefit of the people.

- Henry Clay

The above statement by Henry Clay summarizes exactly what the Modern Whig Party and the Whig Philosophy or Whiggery is at its core; service for the benefit of the people. We don’t need to list examples about how our American government at all levels is not acting for the benefit of the people. All Americans paying attention can see the corruption, ineffective leadership, and ideological paralysis that are far too prevalent in today’s government and political system.

What We Believe

The Modern Whigs are a pragmatic, common sense, centrist-oriented party where rational solutions trump ideology and integrity trumps impunity.

Our core modern Whig philosophy relies on several fundamental tenets:

Where We Stand

Because Whigs value differences of opinion and independent thought, we do not necessarily take a position on every particular issue that may be fashionable for the moment. Instead, we propose a program of broad reforms that we believe will strengthen our country as it faces the challenges of the 21st century.

The Modern Whig party of the United States of America is the party for the rest of us, the party of patriots, the party of equality, the party of liberty, and the party of moderates.

We, the Modern Whigs, standing on the broad and firm platform of the Constitution, united by all of its inviolable and sacred guarantees and compromises, relying upon the intelligence of the American people, with an abiding confidence in their capacity for self-government and their devotion to the Constitution and to the United States of America, pledge to go forth with integrity, open-mindedness, pragmatism, and transparency as we pursue our civic duty.

- adapted from the preamble to the Modern Whig Party Constitution and By-Laws

The Whig Plan

We share the vision of the Whigs who have gone before us. Whigs have a rich history, from our Enlightenment-era beginnings in the 1600s to today. Our Whig forefathers espoused an enlightened approach to life in order to combat then current prejudices and come closer to the truth. This was not only in the field of science and philosophy, but also in governance. Today, more than ever, it is clear we need to replace the existing "truths" of governance in America with some new ones.

Please consider this thought....

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

- Albert Einstein

What Others are Saying

CNN's "Outfront" asks "What do you think of the Modern Whig Party?"

Christopher Moloney, writing on CNN's "Erin Burnett Outfront" blog, starts by asking "is it time for a new political party?" and finishes with "What do you think of the Modern Whig Party?" Sandwiched between those two questions is information about how the MWP came about, what its goals are, and how it has moved the values of the Whigs from the 1800s into the 21st century.

What Whigs and Friends Are Talking About

Let FREEDOM ring in the Ukraine…and the United States- by T.J. O'Hara

RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., March 10, 2014 – The Ukrainian crisis seems to have caught many Americans by surprise, which is surprising in itself…or perhaps just disappointing. Our Nation and its leaders seem to be captivated by the moment; living in a Twitter-like world that carries an attention span of 140 hours instead of 140 characters. While it is discouraging with respect to our citizens, it is totally unacceptable with regard to our Government.

3 steps to fix the political system the Parties have broken- T.J. O'Hara

RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., March 3, 2014 – Our political system is dysfunctional if not completely broken. It has become so corrosive that many citizens have abandoned any hope of changing it for the better. Others are inclined to commit their blind allegiance to a particular Party; convinced that it occupies the moral and intellectual high-ground while the other Party is comprised of only slightly-evolved Neanderthals. To paraphrase Eldridge Cleaver: Neither behavior represents part of the solution, but rather, both are part of the problem.
