What are we committed to conserving? We want to conserve the gift given to us by our nation’s Founding Fathers. One nation, under God, with liberty and Justice for all.
This requires upholding the principles of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. We are committed to preserving the history of our great country and the men and women who through their courage and fortitude make this nation great. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin set us on a course that allowed us to improve our nation, to lift out of poverty millions of people, to guarantee religious freedom for all, and to offer unlimited opportunity for all its citizens. We are committed to preserving this legacy by honoring those who made this a reality.
Today, our nation faces unprecedented challenges. The Covid19 pandemic from Communist China has killed more than 140,000 Americans and severely damaged the economy. Governors and mayors have exercised dubious emergency powers based on civilization’s most dangerous lie: “I’m from the government and I’m here to help you,” even as evidence mounts that the treatment may be more destructive than the disease.
Then leftist radicals seized on a tragic act of police brutality to launch election year disruptions of civic order. Rioting, looting, destruction of businesses and historic memorials, assaults on bystanders and police – culminated in idiotic demands that cities reduce the number of police officers standing between the mob and innocent citizens. The worst Democrat mayors mindlessly complied.
We take these rioters at their words: They want to destroy the American system of government by eradicating our national history, by disobeying our laws, by forcibly wresting private property away from its rightful owners, and by imposing a culture in which people are intimidated into submitting to the demands of so-called people of color.
One driving force behind this politically-motivated violence is the Antifa movement. We stand firmly behind President Trump’s efforts to restore law and order and support his declaration that Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization.
America is the most heterogeneous nation in the world, and the Conservative Party believes that our Constitutional freedoms, cultural diversity, and opportunity-rich economy make discrimination rare. Systemic racism is a lie. The loudest shouts of discrimination come from those demanding cash and standing they have not earned in an honest and fair merit evaluation.
While elites and elements of the media are working, and scheming, and lying to remake the United States and the world order, the Conservative Party remains committed to legally working to build a better and more prosperous nation through evolutionary change based on the wisdom of our ancestors.
In 2016, Americans shocked the world by electing Donald Trump, President of the United States. In the most dramatic way, Americans announced they were tired of politicians who denied the greatness of America, who pursed a globalist agenda that cost us jobs and the lives of military personnel, and who used the judiciary and the bureaucracy against the interests of ordinary citizens, the family, and religious institutions. The New York State Conservative Party is proud of the role it played in supporting the underdog Donald Trump in 2016 and we are committed to continuing our support of the Trump revolution.
Since its founding the New York State Conservative Party has stood by its conservative principles through some difficult periods. We oppose wrongheaded Washington programs like Obamacare, we oppose the nationwide movement to create Sanctuary Cities and States, we vigorously oppose illegal immigration, and we are staunch opponents of attacks on our religious values and institutions.
In 2020, we are deeply concerned about the break down in the rule of law. State and local jurisdictions openly flaunt their refusal to uphold federal laws they don’t like. These elected officials are often backed up by rogue Judges who defend their illegal actions. Currently, we are pleased that the Trump Administration is pushing back against this breakdown in the Rule of Law by demanding the end to Sanctuary jurisdictions. We will continue to support such efforts.
