Political Party Statements of Purpose

American Independent

The American Independent Party is the party of ordered liberty in a nation under God. We believe in strict adherence to written law. We believe the Constitution is the contract America has with itself. Its willful distortion has led to the violation of our Tenth Amendment guaranteed right to limited government—which inevitably requires oppressive taxation. Its faithful application will lift that burden.

Freed from the lawless oppression of Progressive rule, we may then compassionately and justly use our energy and ingenuity to provide for ourselves and our families. We will then establish truly free and responsible enterprise and reassert the basic human right to property.

We believe in protecting all human life however weak, defenseless, or disheartened; endorse the family as the essential bulwark of liberty, compassion, responsibility, and industry; and declare the family's right and responsibility to nurture, discipline, and educate their children.

We assert the absolute, concurrent Second Amendment guaranteed individual right to self defense coupled with a strong common defense, a common defense which requires a national sovereignty not damaged by imprudent treaties.

We oppose all illegal immigration.

We support secure borders and immigration policies inviting the best of the world to join us in freedom.

Democratic Party

California Democrats are committed to working for the future Californians deserve, while resisting Washington, D.C.’s assault on progress.

We believe that every person should have a job that lets them provide for themselves and their family, live in safe and affordable housing, and have comprehensive, universal, exceptional healthcare.

We believe in the Labor Movement and collective bargaining rights for workers, and we want to expand education and childcare opportunities for California’s children.

Democrats believe California must lead the fight against the existential threat of Climate Change, and that our Coast must be 100% off-limits to oil drilling. We believe everyone has the right to breathe clean air, drink clean water and enjoy pristine natural spaces.

We believe in an inclusive society for all. We strongly support legal protections for Dreamers, and for immigration reform that honors our history as a nation of immigrants. We believe no person should ever be subjected to bullying, harassment, assault or discrimination because of race, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, physical disability, economic status or religion.

California Democrats believe in compassion, fiscal responsibility, progress and inclusion. We invite you to join our effort to build the future California deserves.

Libertarian Party

Libertarians stand for something: Freedom.

We believe that the most peaceful, most prosperous, most socially fair and tolerant and progressive society is one that solves its problems without government force. We believe that social woes like inaccessible healthcare, inadequate social justice, economic instability, and racial disparity are caused and perpetuated by officials who would rather increase their power instead of truly solving peoples’ problems.

We believe in freedom—first and foremost. For 46 years, the Libertarian Party has been the means of advancing once radical issues like marijuana legalization, gay  marriage, gun rights, school choice, transportation competition, ending mandatory minimum sentences, ending asset forfeiture laws, and ending eminent domain. We oppose foreign wars and want to bring our troops home from overseas.

We want to end graft that robs the poor, destroys honest businesses and corrupts education, police, courts and elections. We believe that Americans are being taxed to  death to support a failed system full of waste and corruption.

We want to stop giving money and power to the same people who have caused the problems we face today.

It’s time for a big change. If you are tired of throwing away your vote, send a message—Vote Libertarian.

Peace and Freedom Party

The Peace and Freedom Party is a working-class party in a country run by and for the wealthy and their corporations. We should not have to sacrifice our health, our livelihoods, and our planet for our bosses' profits. We can tax the rich, whose wealth is created by workers, to pay for society's needs.

We favor:

Social justice & equality: *Free universal health care for all. *Decent jobs and labor rights for all. *Free education for everyone, preschool through university. *Ending all discrimination. *Comprehensive services for disabled people. *Marriage equality. *Full rights for immigrants.

Justice reform: *Abolishing the death penalty. *Stopping police abuse and prison torture.

Peace: *Bringing the troops home now. *Ending drone attacks.

Environment: *Reversing climate change. *Restoring and protecting the environment.

Legislative: *Repealing California’s “top two” election law, restoring voters’ general election choices. * Establishing a State Bank.

While capitalism puts the wealthy first we will continue to suffer war, police brutality, low wages, unsafe workplaces, and pollution. We advocate socialism, the ownership and democratic control of the economy by working people. By joining together to take back our industries and natural resources, we can make progress for the common good.

Republican Party

The California Republican Party is focused on listening to all Californians. We are working to restore our state as the leader in economic growth, job creation and, most of all, affordability.

We recognize that the cost of living is harming Californians’ ability to provide a good life for their families. We want to make California the land of opportunity again—where everyone can get a slice of the American Dream. California should be a state where residents feel safe to run their businesses and raise their families.

We see a future with opportunity, where hard work leads to better jobs and pay. We envision a California where communities are safe, roads are built, air is clean and water is plentiful. Republicans want every child to have access to well-paid, effective teachers for a world-class education.

Our doors are open to you and we hope you will  make the decision today to protect, improve and rebuild this state by joining the California Republican Party. Visit us at cagop.org to learn more.
