As a political movement revived by Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, the Modern Whig Party has not forgotten the events of September 11, 2001 and its immediate aftermath. This national political movement is populated by people from all walks of life and many parts of the mainstream political spectrum. This includes CEOs, teachers, nurses, students, auto workers and law enforcement. In fact, FL congressional candidate Paul C. McKain is a retired firefighter among other professional attributes.
So on this day, we urge people to take a glance at two of our tenets. 1) Energy Independence is particularly relevant because many of our enemies ranging from the Middle East to Venezuela are financed and equipped through our dependence on foreign oil. Along those lines, we should not forget that not too long ago, gas prices were nearly $5/gallon. Gas prices already have crept up again and history has proven that this cycle will only get worse. 2) Veterans Affairs is highlighted in recognition of the sacrifice that our military members and their families endure on a daily basis.
