I cordially invite you to check out the only Communitarian party in the US today, the Falconist Party. Our party combines the ideas of the right and left to take America and the world neither right, nor left, but up. Look us up on the web.

What are your ideas, specifically? And don't direct me to a website, tell us here and now.

I visited the party site out of curiosity. To sum it up in concise yet generalizing terms, the Falconist Party is very nationalistic, more neo-mercantilist than capitalist in spirit, culturally conservative on most issues, and neo-conservative on foreign policy. It favors a stronger military, eventual global domination by the United States (albeit not by force), a major role for the state investing in strategic infrastructure and shepherding markets toward national goals, promoting a set of wholesome values (especially respect for and discipline to authority), and accelerating our space program with a vision of founding orbital settlements and colonies on other worlds. Institutional reforms are also sought. CINC is correct in describing it as communitarian, incidentally, though it may be deceiving to describe its intended path for the world as "neither right, nor left," I reckon.

'Falconist', eh?  Reminds me of another ideology that begins with 'fa' and ends with 'ist'.

Their party platform is here: http://falconistparty.tripod.com/id7.html

Some of the more remarkable planks are below:


They call for implementation of the VAT and a Land Value Tax

They call for a collossal nation building program, up to and including " the establishment of new cities and communities in the sparsely settled regions of America where "economic refugees" and "evacuees from the inner cities will be resettled while the inner city communities are torn down and rebuilt. "

They call for the permanent  revival of FDR style public work programs to eliminate unemployment.

They call for a universal healthcare system based on vouchers.

They want the revival of conscription(universal rather then lottery based) for military training and civil service
      
They call for" the issuing of weapons to all law-abiding citizens as well as training all citizens in personal protection and homeland defense as well as the re-establishment of state militias."

They call for the subsidization of child bearing and rearing, coupled with a ban on abortion.          
      
They hold to a Puritan-style hostility against gays, drinking, gambling, smoking and pornography.

They call for for "laws and programs that will extend formal equality and equality of opportunity for all people of color and background.".... sounds like affirmative action, peculiar considering their generally social conservative tone

    
 They suggest a war against all regimes worldwide engaged in terrorism, tyranny, drug and human trafficking, atrocity, and genocide. War against China? Lol

....

....

Drum roll....


      

  
 They call for the annexation of Canada, Mexico, Greenland, and the rest of North America into the USA as states or territories, and "will also welcome any nation that wishes to join the USA as either a state or a territory. "

Space colonization is a plausable idea. We do have to take care of some stuff here on Earth first. However, a Falconist America will be the world's R&D laboratory. We will implement a national innovation strategy, reform the patent office, train millions of scientists, engineers and technicians, and spend 2% of the America's GDP on research and development.

In a long list of items that range from pablum, to nutter, to unwise, to cruel, to impracticable to truly frightening, number 22 regarding revamping education has some potential.

Quote
12. We call for policies that would preserve and revitalize family farms as well as small town America.

As to number 12, does that mean I get some more government money for the "family" farm? Putting aside the ethanol subsidies, which just convert into higher cash rent, I am getting about 10K or so now in cash government subsidies, just for owning the good earth, and putting unprofitable land into land banks and conservation programs, in exchange for cash payments per year per acre, and have managed in my short tenure as its master, to burn up about 50 hours of government workers' time to boot. I now have them busy designing grass filter strips to staunch erosion from an all too greedy river adjacent to the cropland, and tiling system, at their expense, not mine, as well as having their team of biologists review a "wetlands" determination on a 2.2 acre tract that I don't like, and think failed to hew to the proper protocols, which may then go to mediation, which the government will pay for as well, as we speak. Oh, and I have the army corp of engineers all fired up over a dike project per my latest brainstorm. With any "luck," I should be up to about 100 hours of their time by the end of the year. What kind of increase does your party have in mind?

Sometimes by the way, what makes for a "good" community, is just letting folks do their own thing, while staying off your lawn.

Our website is no longer a tripod site. That was our first site. The official one is more advanced and not serviced by tripod.

Also, as far as our farm policy goes, our plan is for the government to purchase surplus agricultural goods and store them for future use or donate them to food banks. Our plan also calls for the limiting of development within the corporate limits of cities and towns, preserving most farmland and forests.

I wholeheartedly support the space ideas.

Don't really like the rest of the platform overall, I'm afraid. But always nice for people to have more options.

Years ago I stumbled upon a webpage for a party who called for America to conquer the entire world and impose "American" values on all of civilization. It was the Empire or Expansion party, I cannot remember which one. Were any of your members involved in that?

Oh, pushing up crop prices some more. I like it!  Pity that will F the poorest of the poor on this planet, as the world wide price of grains goes up some more beyond that which the ethanol heist has effected, but hey, the poor are there, and we're here.

If you limit development within cities and towns, doesn't that mean more development without, chewing up land and more urban sprawl? I thought the game these days was to infill within cities and towns. Anyway, I don't want the town limits just 500 feet or so north of the farm to suck me in. That means a doubling of property taxes, and that I can't subdivide without paved streets and sewers and stuff. The poor slob owning a tract just to the north, can't do squat because of that, because he is in the city limits. All he can do is grow soybeans and watch the deer in the forest preserve next door (which we gave to the city, haha) eat it up. We or course have our adjacent land in a conservation program for more cash payments then we could get in rent. But he failed to navigate the traps to do that. You know, what you really need these days to "properly" manage a farm these days is a good lawyer!  Yes, you do. Smiley

With the rise in food prices, perhaps what we need to do is ramp up food production. We could shift agricultural production from tobacco to foodstuffs. We could train more farmers. We could send farmers overseas to train people around the world in modern farm methods.

How do we ramp up food production?  The answer of course is with more government checks to make profitable farming marginal land. I've got about 40 acres in mind myself, where cattle run at the moment.





All I need is more government $$$$$, and it's a done deal.

But hey, I'm glad you have an open mind. I mean, your having done a 180 on one plank, we have only about 40 more to go, and we'll be there. Smiley
