The Emancipation Party aims for simplicity, trust and transparency at every level of government.

1] The means is the creation of a level playing field for all ideas and questions to be heard equally, rooted in the assumptions of Hebrew covenant and the Gospel.

2] The purpose is to cut the reach of the state and federal governments as much as possible, so that its size and its taxes serve the maximum religious, political and economic liberty for all people equally. This is emancipation.

3] The starting point is founded in a proposed rewrite of the Constitution and General Laws of Connecticut in 36 pages, and the United States Constitution and General Laws in 25 pages. These are published in The Six Pillars of Honest Politics (item 2 at To accomplish this will multiply freedom and prosperity for all.
