The Modern Whig Party


A Party for All of Us


Common_Sense.jpgThroughout history, Whigs have traditionally stood for representative government, individual liberty, social and economic progress, modernization, public education, a vibrant legislative branch, and ongoing cooperation between the private and public sectors. Our forebears, the original American Whigs, built on those traditions and led the fledgling United States during a period of robust economic, social and political development in the years between the Revolution and the Civil War. We proudly point to some of the giants of American history in our lineage, including such leading lights as Alexander Hamilton, Henry Clay and Abraham Lincoln, among others.

But while our roots may lie in history, we are a thoroughly contemporary political movement. We are informed by the past, not bound to it. Today, with our nation and our world facing more profound challenges than ever, we believe the traditional Whig emphasis on authentic public service, forward thinking, pragmatic planning, common sense and compromise offers the best blueprint for the betterment of our nation and our world. We believe deeply in the value of courageous service to our country, and we rely on methodology, not ideology, to map a way forward.

For Those Who Have Served

Every Nov. 11 our nation sets aside a day to honor the service our fellow citizens have rendered us all by pledging their lives and their sacred honor to the defense of their country. But the truth is, for the nation as a whole, it is literally the least we can do.

The Modern Whigs Stand with Our Veterans


As a party founded by veterans, issues involving the well-being of our military personnel are of paramount concern to the Modern Whigs.

We believe those who sacrifice so much to serve their fellow citizens should be adequately compensated while on active duty, and provided with adequate pensions, health care, job training and other transitional and support services after discharge.

For us, treating our veterans and active duty personnel with the respect they deserve is more than a matter of prudent public policy -- it's a matter of our national honor.
