Does America really need another political action committee?
Well, if the common ideals held by most Americans are not being represented, and if political “opponents” have stopped negotiating in good faith and no longer have the desire to work together with those ideals as their foundation… the answer is a resounding “yes.”
The Purple America Coalition is a unique alliance of Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, and Independents dedicated to centrist policies and supporting candidates who share that inclination.
• Social Liberty
• Equality of Opportunity
• Fiscal and Environmental Sustainability
• Inclusive Capitalism
These are modern centrist ideals. Truth, unity, and America’s greatest potential reside in the middle, not the fringes.
Simple, fair and progressive tax code – but not punitive
Eliminate excessive special-interest loopholes that avoid taxation
Tax rates that are globally competitive for individuals and employers
No one should pay more in combined taxes than they can self-direct
Altruism and charitable endeavors should be supported, not penalized
Deﬁcit spending in times of need, but not perpetually
Social safety nets but not permanent dependency
A glide path to balanced budgets and reduced debt
A modernized social security system with greater protections
Pragmatic and necessary environmental protections
Fair and transparent trade agreements with like-minded nations
Equal opportunity and access for all without divisive identity politics
Inclusive Capitalism – broad based, mutual success
Constructive dissatisfaction in pursuit of a more perfect, inclusive union
The Golden Rule – enough said
Our coalition comprises members of all political affiliations and we only engage in supporting individual candidates when the Things We Stand For are clearly at risk. When we do, we look for candidates who embrace our modern centrist ideals and preferably have a track-record of working across the aisle. There is no perfect candidate, and our support of any candidate will never be unconditional and never perpetual. We will always check any ethical concerns before we endorse, regardless of alignment on issues.
