"Our differences are policies; our agreements, principles."
William Mckinley, 25th President of the United States
Our Principles Are What Unite Us
SAM’s principles guide our actions. We choose to focus on the common beliefs that make us more alike than on policies that divide us.
Those in power take every opportunity to divide us. SAM stands as a beacon for inclusion, providing a shared foundation on which to build a new political party for a new American majority. For those left behind by a political system that puts its interests ahead of those of the American people.
SAM was founded on 5 core pillars and 13 individual principles
Inspire and elevate the dignity of fellow citizens.
1 Restore civic engagement, long-term thinking, and a culture of service to Nation and community
2 Heal divides and foster ties through constructive, evidence-based public discussion, free of insult or intimidation
3 Recognize a fundamental obligation to provide for those in need or at risk while promoting a culture of responsibility
4 Commit to bold, pragmatic solutions that address income and opportunity inequality and reinvigorate our education system
Defend Our Liberties
5 Champion diversity and protect people’s inalienable right to pursue their version of the American dream without question or interference
Embrace America's Entrepreneurial Spirit
6 Embrace the efficiency of free markets as the foundational backbone of liberty and American prosperity
7 Promote free trade, attract the best of the world’s talent, and reject policies of retreat or isolationism
8 Harness the power of technological innovation to modernize government and deliver practical and targeted solutions to our common needs
9 Create tax systems that are simple, transparent, fair, and free of market-distorting incentives
Achieve peace through strength & Principle
10 Ensure that the guardians of our domestic and national security always have the tools and support they need
11 Advance American leadership and security and support human rights and democracy around the world
Invest in future generations
12 Meet our Nation’s needs and challenges in a manner that is fiscally responsible and limits burdens on future generations
13 Protect the planet for future generations while responsibly leveraging our natural resources to drive economic growth
We can't do this alone
SAM is building a new political party for a new American majority. One where fairness, integrity, and common sense solutions work together to achieve real progress for Americans.
Aside from a few members on staff on a day-to-day basis to keep SAM’s mission moving forward, we are entirely driven by passionate volunteers giving their time out of their own volition.
We depend on people like you to keep our movement alive. Whether it be by becoming a member or a SAM Leader, or by monetary donation, any contribution along our path is hugely appreciated.
