Third Party Info: ‘Interview with H. Lillian Vogl, Chairwoman of the American Solidarity Party’

Third Party Info:

1. Can tell us what the American Solidarity Party is?

We are a party that seeks the common good, on common ground, through common sense. We believe in the sanctity of human life, the necessity of social justice, our responsibility to care for the environment, and promotion of a more peaceful world. We cherish the individual rights and separation of government powers protected by the U.S. Constitution, and recognize the need for social supports and community cohesion as modeled by a number of European governments or movements. We seek to bridge the bitter partisan divide with principled and respectful policies and dialog.

2. What makes the American Solidarity Party different from all of the other political parties?

A consistent focus on the dignity and sanctity of all human life. We’re also purely grassroots. We have no corporate or big dollar sponsors.

    I really wonder if this group is gonna go anywhere? It seems like a less baggage/less ideological right wing alternative than the CP. They got some buzz on anti-establishment conservative sites like american conservative & imaginative conservative.

    There are a lot of people who are fiscally liberal but socially conservative, a stance that fits with neither of the two big parties, and is a rarity even among third parties. If they can tap into that, which is actually a pretty big demographic according to http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/06/new-study-shows-what-really-happened-in-the-2016-election.html, then they could actually have some success.

    Thanks for posting this article! I’m the new vice-chair of the American Solidarity Party and a long-time reader of Independent Political Report. I have tried to share some of the lessons I have learned from watching LP and CP drama to avoid some of the same mistakes.

    We have a state legislative candidate in New Jersey this fall, and are endorsing a write-in independent candidate for Virginia legislature who barely missed making the ballot. There is a lot of work to do to get socially conservative, fiscally liberal to moderate Americans to work together. For too long, they have been divided by religious differences, minor policy disagreements, and whether to support the Democrats or the Republicans as the lesser of two evils. But we are seeing a great deal of interest in this party from all over the country, and have the beginnings of state organizations in the majority of states. You’ll be hearing more from us!

    Judging by https://solidarity-party.org/platform, they are both. Their foreign policy plank:

    National Security

    We believe that a safer, more just, and peaceful world is achievable through principled use of force and diplomacy. We believe we can secure our nation without sacrificing personal liberties or overextending our global military presence and commitments.

    We, therefore, support:

    Military force being used only when consistent with Just War principles.

    Ending the use of nuclear weapons, pre-emptive strikes, disproportionate retaliation, the killing of civilians, and the mistreatment of prisoners of war.

    Condemning the use of torture – by whatever method, for whatever purpose, and by whatever euphemism it may be called.

    Prosecution and punishment to the fullest extent of the law of those who participate in or authorize torture.

    A review of the effectiveness of security agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security.

    Recognition that prudence in securing our borders can be reconciled with compassion for families fleeing violence and persecution.
