Economic Nationalism

We advocate economic nationalism, which places the economy at the service of the nation. We believe that the welfare of our people should supercede all other things.

Our nation was founded on values combining personal initiative with mutual co-operation. From the Plymouth Colony to Andrew Jackson's Reforms, to the Homestead Act to the New Deal, Americans have known that we all are better off when we recognize basic standards of social justice. But thanks to globalism, dog-eat-dog economics has resulted in offshoring, outsourcing, the destruction of unions, and the gutting of the US economy. We advocate economic nationalism, which places the economy at the service of the nation; we believe that the welfare of our people should supercede all other things, including the ability of multinational corporations to exploit or ignore our people for unbridled profits.

Washington on National Economy

The North, in an unrestrained intercourse with the South, protected by the equal laws of a common government, finds in the productions of the latter great additional resources of maritime and commercial enterprise and precious materials of manufacturing industry. The South, in the same intercourse, benefiting by the agency of the North, sees its agriculture grow and its commerce expand. Turning partly into its own channels the seamen of the North, it finds its particular navigation invigorated; and, while it contributes, in different ways, to nourish and increase the general mass of the national navigation, it looks forward to the protection of a maritime strength, to which itself is unequally adapted. The East, in a like intercourse with the West, already finds, and in the progressive improvement of interior communications by land and water, will more and more find a valuable vent for the commodities which it brings from abroad, or manufactures at home. The West derives from the East supplies requisite to its growth and comfort, and, what is perhaps of still greater consequence, it must of necessity owe the secure enjoyment of indispensable outlets for its own productions to the weight, influence, and the future maritime strength of the Atlantic side of the Union, directed by an indissoluble community of interest as one nation.
