Members of the Emancipation Party thrive in affirming three assumptions:

  1. The United States are founded on certain unalienable rights given by the Creator to all people – life, liberty and a free market economy – under the rule of law and based on the consent of the governed.
  1. The Golden Rule in political context is when all other partisan ideas are first given an honest listen.
  1. Hebrew covenant and the Gospel are the sole historical basis for unalienable rights, and for a level playing field where all partisan ideas are welcome to be debated.


  • The goal is to cut the reach of state government as much as possible, so that its size and its taxes serve the maximum religious, political and economic liberty for all people equally. A starting point for open-ended public discussion is found in The Six Pillars of Honest Politics (available at , where John Rankin proposes a detailed plan to reduce the Constitution and General Laws to a simple and comprehensive 36 pages.
