- Who We Are
- Speak Up!
- Take Action
No words can ever express or be adequate to thank the veterans of the United States military. Our veterans and their families have sacrificed much in order to ensure that we can live our lives not only in peace but in a land where tremendous personal opportunities are possible. Thank a veteran today and this week, volunteer with the VA. Show them through words and actions your appreciation. This is a good way to thank them because they swore to defend use with their words and have done so with their actions.
May we never forget 09-11-01 and those who tragically died that day. May we remember their families and pray for or wish them continued comfort. May we also remember those who have died serving our nation since then, those who have defended us so that we may live in peace. We must always remember their sacrifice and pray or wish comfort to their friends, families, and loved ones. We must honor their spirit with our spirit and honor their actions with our actions, each and every day.

The Modern Whig Party and its members remember Pearl Harbor 70 years ago and the day that has lived in infamy. We give thanks to our World War II veterans and families. We especially remember those who lost their lives in the war. May we learn from their efforts, sacrifice, and hope.
This Veterans Day and for the always the Modern Whig Party wants to sincerely thank and honor our veterans and their families. Our veterans and their families serve our nation with honor, dedication, and purpose each and every day while serving. Even after service these veterans and their families continue to set an example of past, current, and future service. Nothing we can say or do will ever truly repay them for the blood, tears, and time they have spent in service to the American people.
The Webster Institute is a United States policy and strategy development consortia based around the pragmatic, moderate approach of the Modern Whig movement. It is named after great American statesman and orator, Daniel Webster – a well known and beloved Whig firebrand of the Jacksonian era who fought hard against the tyranny and imperialist agendas of Martin van Buren and Andrew Jackson. Before Abraham Lincoln he was widely regarded as the greatest American political orator of all time.

What’s happening In the MWP Veteran Affairs?
The recent debt limit “debate” and resulting “deal” (whose text can be found at http://rules.house.gov/Media/file/XML_112_1/WD/DEBT_016.XML) once again showed how deeply dysfunctional our two-party system has become. The “debate” was really just a series of tone-deaf pontifications in which each side lectured the other and the American people on the virtues of “drawing lines” and “standing firm” based on its respective ideological dogma while the country teetered on the brink of default and economic collapse.
