With America's national debt exceeding 18 trillion dollars and increasing over 1 trillion dollars per year, America is like a runaway locomotive heading for a chasm — and we citizens are the hapless passengers. To divert America from running off the cliff, we must take control of the train and make a full 90° turn. Anything short of 90° will only delay America's certain eventual demise.
We must act now. If we wait, in the not too distant future, momentum alone will be enough to run “the locomotive” off the cliff. There will come a point at which it will be too late and we will be rendered powerless — just as when we watched the Twin Towers fall.
This section summarizes what we must do to save America and our civilization. To turn America from the cliff and put it back on the road to health and prosperity, we need to set specific goals and achieve them. For ease of digestion and assimilation, we have grouped these essential goals into 10 summary statements. These summary statements are the “Planks” of the Patriot Party® Platform.
