Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
Radio talk show host Chuck Morse, a conservative political commentator, was intrigued that so many servicemen and women, returning to a federal government shutdown by party one-up-manship, were forming their own political party by turning to a philosophy around since the Boston Tea Party: They are reviving the WHIGs.
“Modern WHIGs support the US Constitution’s guarantee to a balanced government, and not just the balance between executive, legislative and judicial branches of power, but also between the federal government and the states,” says Mr. Morse, who examines the issues in detail in a newly published book titled A WHIG Manifesto, available through Trineday Publishers.
The Constitution clearly says: Powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
“The Whigs of today are concerned over a turnover of governing authority from elected officials to unaccountable appointees, bureaucrats, judges, and international bodies,” said Mr. Morse.
“The WHIGs goal is to preserve American sovereignty and security, a philosophy that is neither left nor right. The Whigs recognize that the most natural and fundamental balance in government resides in the balance between the government and the sovereign citizen.”
This is why the WHIGs support the right of the individual to worship in public, to keep and bear arms, and to maintain the maximum level of control by the individual and the family over life, liberty, property, and destiny, and to have their civil and equal rights strongly protected, according to the Manifesto.
While the WHIGs support a vigorous national government that invests in national infrastructure, protects domestic industry and labor, regulates national financial and banking institutions and issues debt-free currency, the Whigs also respect the prerogative of the states to regulate on such social questions as the definition of marriage and other family issues, says Mr. Morse.
“The WHIGs have championed civil rights on the national level, the right to equal justice under the law, since the days of the WHIG Administration of Abraham Lincoln. Yet regarding specific policies of welfare, education, health care, affirmative action, abortion, birth control, and other social questions, the Whigs trust the citizens of the states, and their elected state representatives, to render public policies that are suitable,” he said. “This is the fastest growing third-party in America!”
