The mission of the Independent Party is to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity through the election, at all levels of government, of Independent Party candidates who will uphold the principles of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. It is our goal to limit the federal government to its delegated, enumerated, constitutional functions and to restore American jurisprudence to its original common-law foundations.

As stated in the Declaration of Independence, the only just and legitimate role of civil government is to secure the unalienable rights with which our Creator has endowed us. From the courthouse, to the state house, to the White House, government has grown well beyond its proper role and has become a usurper. Under both Democrats and Republicans alike, the size and scope of government continues to increase and as government increases, liberty decreases. For this reason, the Independent Party was founded to provide voters with a means of escape from the two party duopoly.
