The rule of law is only as strong as it is fair, just and accessible

It gains its strength solely from the faith people and society place in it. Absent that faith, the law's legitimacy tarnishes until it is no longer trusted as a tool of justice. In much of America that is the sad result we see today.

Our legal system as it exists presently is highly complicated, and even legal experts have difficulty keeping track of the millions of laws on our books. This makes legal services extremely expensive, which renders law into a tool that's accessible only to the wealthy. Of the Americans who find themselves seeking justice, unless they have money or the backing of a well-funded organization our legal system simply doesn't work for them. We plan to solve this problem through several approaches:

Enacting Government and Corporate Accountability Agencies


Enacting Government and Corporate Accountability Agencies

The creation of the Government Accountability Agency and Corporate Affairs Service within our consolidated Government 2.0 model of public service are intended to understate the fact that nobody is above the law. These services exist to ensure that an impartial law enforcement agency can investigate powerful entities and hold them to the same standards the rest of us are.

We seek to hold government accountable for its actions. We are all held responsible for how we conduct ourselves and do our jobs. The same must be true of public service.

Dedicated Citizen Advocacy


Dedicated Citizen Advocacy

In addition to the new agencies listed above, the Alliance Party would create a Citizen Advocacy Service, which would be tasked with aiding Americans with clarifying legal questions, offering legal advice and in certain cases, legal representation. As a public interest organization, it would have the authority to file class action lawsuits on behalf of Americans for violations of their rights, and helps enforce constitutional claims by American citizens against government wrongdoing. As government is the enactor and executor of law, it has a responsibility to help aid compliance and ensure clarity as much as possible. This service fulfills that goal.

We believe that every citizen harmed by government wrongdoing has a right to be made whole. We also believe citizens have a right to receive legal guidance as a function of public service.

Constitutional Additions


Constitutional Additions

To permanently establish the reforms necessary to make government work for the national interest, we intend to pass several constitutional amendments that accomplish three key goals:

  1. Prevent wealthy interests from corrupting government.
  2. Re-gain rights that were unjustly taken under oversold justifications.
  3. Ensure mechanisms exist that can hold government accountable for its actions.

We seek to add amendments to our Constitution that enact congressional term limits, prevent wealthy interests from corrupting public service, regain rights that were unjustly taken hold government accountable for its actions.

Liberty-First Mindset


Liberty-First Mindset

We believe that the law should serve and protect society - but that it should also respect it and the choices of the people who live within it. Unless it is dangerous, destructive, discriminatory or dishonest to a degree that it causes external social harm or infringement on the rights of others, the Alliance Party believes that our legal system should exercise restraint in terms of how it restricts behavior. Our country is diverse in lifestyles and perspectives, and we believe law should only be used when truly necessary to protect our safety, economy, environment or rights.

We believe our rights apply to all Americans, and we seek to dismantle any practice of law that is discriminatory, facilitates racism, treats any member of our society as second-class citizens or allows them to be treated that way without sanction. America is a team, and reaching a brighter future requires all of us to work together as a team. Any effort to undermine the equality or rights of our teammates is an attack on our team as a whole. We are the Alliance Party for a reason, we will never let abuse or denial of rights go unanswered.

American identity is represented not by race, religion or gender - but by character and integrity. We will fight to ensure all Americans have the same opportunities to make their mark in the world, actively confronting discrimination in all forms.

Criminal Justice Reform


Criminal Justice Reform

The United States has the largest prison population on the planet, jailing some 25% of the world's prisoners. Much of this result is due to legal standpoints that value quotas over circumstances, as well as lifelong felony convictions that make it difficult for ex-offenders to enter the workforce as upstanding citizens. But much of it is also due to laws criminalizing harmless behaviors that should not be criminalized. We seek to change that by refocusing criminal law towards true crimes - namely those against persons or property - and in enforcement against them.

The growing divide between law enforcement and society is both unhealthy and dangerous. We intend to remove pressure from police while focusing criminal law towards true crimes, further seeking to rebuild trust.

Regulation that works for society


Regulation that works for society

We strongly believe that effective regulations should be present and enforced for the health of our economy, but that they also must be clear and accessible. Legal compliance shouldn't come in the form of five-figure legal bills. Permits shouldn't be a financial barrier to someone building on their own property. Fines and fees shouldn't be used as a revenue source, they should be respectively used only as a deterrent and a legitimate cost-offset of an especially expensive service. We believe that government should stay out of your business unless there's an identifiable and justifiable reason.

Regulating the functions of our advanced society is critically important. But regulatory complexity can’t be an obstacle to honest business. We aim to standardize regulation to make it as straightforward as possible.
