“To be good, and to do good, is all we have to do.”
John Adams, 2nd President of the United States
It's in the name
SAM was founded on a single simple idea: that politicians should serve the people they are elected to represent.
In the aftermath of the 2016 election, it has become clear that the face of American politics as we knew them before the election cycle have changed inexorably. It is increasingly obvious that the two incumbent parties that are entrenched within our political system no longer operate on a modus that favors the interests of their constituents, and we’re all suffering because of it. They have consistently proven that the candidates and results they provide only serve their own interests and not the interests of the majority of the American people.
SAM’s mission is to end this duopoly and build a new, inclusive party for a growing new majority within the United States—from the ground up.
A party for the future. A vision of inclusion and service.
SAM has the great challenge of thinking in both the near- and the long-term when it comes to our ideas. Without a strong and rational vision for what we are trying to achieve, along with great minds in place to execute on that vision, we cannot succeed.
5 core pillars with 13 individual principles that support them.
While our Vision acts as our North Star in the sky, SAM’s principles act as our guiding light—both morally and strategically—toward that ultimate goal. They are the backbone that dictate our actions on a day to day basis and helps us ensure that we do not fall trap to the same mistakes our predecessors have.
