By Robert Hopkins – State Executive Committee At-Large Member

The new Independence Party Platform focuses on three main principles – Freedom, Families and Free Markets. These principles are promoted through specific policy positions that call for protecting and preserving Freedom for all citizens, supporting Families and Children, and
ensuring Free Markets with limited regulatory burdens as the foundations for personal liberty, economic growth, and prosperity.

Another key principle to the new Platform is Strengthening Democracy, which undergirds all efforts to achieve greater personal liberty, support families and children, and foster economic growth.

The “New Center” policies outlined in the Platform seize on the best ideas from the left and right and are based on common sense values, and economically populist and free market solutions with the goal of creating a benevolent, dynamic, and uplifting free society that is focused on the well-being of all Minnesotans.

For too long our politics have been mired in the ideological chasms of the far-left and far-right leading to gridlock and stagnation. Instead, the Independence Party rejects these extremes and embraces positions and policies that advance a centrist agenda that will lead to a more inclusive and equitable society in which all citizens can benefit and grow.
