What is the New Right?

What is the New Right?

Now that the election has passed, it is time to start creating the future we desire. The Republican party is weak and there is an opportunity to bypass the old gatekeepers and reach the people directly. We have a chance to answer the question: “What is the New Right?”

People with resources and a desire to make change are paying attention to what we do and say. This is a rare opportunity to influence the world around you.

Now is the time.

Ali Alexander explained how the New Right came to be.

The New Yorker described how the New Right distinguished itself from the Alt-right.

And Jeff Giesea first outlined three core ideas of the New Right at the Deploraball. They were:

  1. Sovereignty
  2. Economic Nationalism
  3. America First

But now I want to take these ideas further, expand on them, add to the list. Let’s work together to define what we represent.

What follows is a brain storm of positions which when taken together begin to represent my idea of what the New Right could be. Consider these a draft of draft of something to be posted on the front door of the GOPe headquarters.

You’ll see a mix of economic, immigration, education, and cultural positions, including changes to policies on identity, race, and gender.

Reminder, this list is incomplete and just the beginning of the conversation.

Without further ado, I submit to you my ideas on “What is the New Right?”

The New Right

In order to create a more perfect union, we must:

  1. Defend our borders and put the interests of American citizens first. This includes reinforcing physical borders.
  2. Create long-term assimilation campaign (ex. 10 years) whose goal is to enhance intergroup trust within our increasingly tribal society. Examples: ”We are America,” “America First,” or “Today’s America.”
  3. Orient federal policies towards assuring an equality of opportunity rather than an equality of outcomes.
  4. Acknowledge the inherent differences among American citizens and work towards emphasizing strengths over weakness.
  5. Honor personal preferences as natural expressions.
  6. Minimize foreign adventurism and nation building. Military, diplomatic, and economic policies must be focused on enhancing the lives and security of American citizens.
  7. Foster a national conversation on race, asking ourselves where do we see America in ten years and how do we achieve that vision.
  8. Provide unequivocal support for freedom and personal liberty for all citizens of America.
  9. Create a low tax, low regulation environment which enhances the market’s ability to efficiently organize labor, capital, and technology within the borders of the United States.
  10. Maintain an unwavering commitment to free speech including protecting the speech of those we disagree with.
  11. Foster a national conversation on feminism, asking ourselves: have the valuable goals of feminism been met and what does the future hold for the movement?
  12. Foster a national conversation on the state of men in general, asking whether or not boys of all races are succeeding as well they can be.
  13. Reject a broad amnesty for illegal immigrants to discourage future illegal entries and overstays. Proceed with the compassionate yet compulsory deportation of all illegal immigrants.
  14. Eliminate sanctuary cities ensuring equal application of existing federal laws across all states and jurisdictions.
  15. Wherever possible, restore law making and cultural engineering to the most localized jurisdiction possible.
  16. Eliminate federal criminalization of marijuana, referring the matter to state and local governments.
  17. Embark on a comprehensive review and reform of university and college expenses, student loan markets, and federal influence over academic policy-making.
  18. Return to science and evidenced based decision making, rejecting post-modern assumptions which deny the existence of an objective reality.
  19. Orient monetary, fiscal, and economic decision making away from GDP growth at all costs and look specifically towards enhancing the standard of living for all Americans.
  20. Ensure equal access to the internet and eliminate discriminatory policies of electronic utility providers such as domain registrars, web hosting, social media platforms, and search.
  21. Reduce federal influence on local education. Foster school choice through charter schools. Permit local jurisdictions to determine curricula and testing methods.
  22. Quickly move to a limited merit based immigration plan, which requires employer sponsorship. Those employers must then pay a substantial (ex. $20,000) tax into a fund to be used for American citizen job training programs.
  23. Not discriminate on the basis of any protected class and explicitly reject the hateful politics of supremacy in any form.

Tell me, in your words, What is the New Right?

This is a rare opportunity to shape the future. Believe me, when I tell you, serious people are paying attention to what we do and say. This is our chance.
