Our Position On Education

We believe its time to get back to basics in education. We need to reform and restructure our educational system from limiting the Federal governments role and regulations to the role of States and taxation methods. Our children's education belongs in the hands of the family and their community not government. Our families and children from grade school through college deserve a more open and responsive educational system with greater freedom of choice in the type of schooling at affordable cost.

We further believe that the Federal Governments Department of Education should be abolished and the funds it receives put back in the hands of the States and the people of those states. Since the inception of the DOE, under the Jimmy Carter Administration, our educational standards and ranking throughout the world has steadily worsened. The growth of charter schools and home education over the past several years has by far and away outperformed the level of students attending public schools. This fact is further proof that there is no place for the Federal government in the role of educator or supervisor of our educational system. This is better left to the community or parents.

The American Reform Party is further developing its official position and recommendation for the reform of our educational system. We will post our entire position on the subject in the coming days. Please check back with us.

Ineptocracy! Finally, a word to describe our current political situation

ARParty : June 23, 2012

Read this one over slowly and absorb the facts that are within this definition! We love this word and believe that it will become a recognized English word.



A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

The latest Washington Post-ABC poll reports that 59% of Americans disapprove of the President’s handling of the economy. The joke is that if Obama ever does anything right, it will be by accident. As Obama steers the nation on a perilous financial course, some still assign a purity of intent to Obama while acknowledging his disastrous failings. Some contend that Obama’s lack of a business degree or business experience has failed him. Other Americans keenly recognize a pattern of premeditation as the nation’s economy plunges into a downward spiral. When it comes to emptying out the U.S. treasury, losing…

Obama On A Collision Course With Your Faith

Sharon Sebastian : April 29, 2010

Bolshevik: a Marxist radical or revolutionary. The term comes from the word Bol’ she, which means bigger, as in bigger government. As true Marxists, the Bolsheviks sought to eliminate God out of society. Government sought to become the god of the people. In Soviet Communist Russia, a Bolshevik was a member of the liberal-left Russian Social Democratic Workers Party.  Recently, President Barack Obama scoffed that Republicans characterized him as “a Bolshevik,” well knowing that the term today means Marxist or Communist.


Today, Marxists/Communists still seek to separate people from their God. One way of doing so…

Governments Takeover of Education: America’s Affliction of Ignorance

Sharon Sebastian : April 05, 2010

Though school kids may get short-sheeted at sleepovers, it should not happen in the classroom. When American schools were redesigned to teach to the lowest common denominator, a sort of "collectivism of intellect" took effect that elevated no one to higher learning, but educationally hamstrung the potential for many of our future best and brightest. Many called it the "Dumbing Down of America."

In 2008, the Evergreen Freedom Foundation, an educational think tank, reported that American students ranked 24 out of 29 when tested scholastically against other developed nations.  Truly, an American tragedy.  Now, the Obama administration has…

36 States Poised to file federal lawsuit to overturn Health Care Bill

ARParty : March 23, 2010

36 States across the country are poised to file federal lawsuit to overturn Health Care Bill upon President Obama's signing of the legislation into law later this morning. The Attorney Generals in thirty-six states intend to file later today on the grounds that our legislators do not have the legal authority under the constitution to mandate and require Americans to purchase Health Care Insurance against their will. Obama & progressive supporters have wrongly contended that they in fact do have the authority under the Commerce Act of the constitution. This claim shows us the complete lack of understanding, disregard…

Obama’s failed economic policies leading to further Job loss & protracted recession

ARParty : March 17, 2010

Recently, President Barack Obama declared that his government "will spend our way out of the recession," which is another way of saying that the government will find clever ways to put money into the hands of people who have produced nothing or very little for it and then encourage them to spend, spend, spend.

Paul Krugman of the New York Times recently declared that our real economics problem is this: "What's limiting employment now is lack of demand for the things workers produce." Not surprisingly, this issue has been thrown about in socialist literature for more than…

Federal takeover of ALL school loans burried in the Healthcare Bill

ARParty : March 16, 2010

Buried in the Healthcare Reform Bill is a provision which authorizes the Federal Government to take over all outstanding private school loans, making the government the sole source and provider for future funding of education loans to students and families. 

This little piece of legislation, conveniently embedded in the bigger Healthcare Bill, will only serve to corrupt and devastate the entire educational system. It further accentuates and perpetuates Obama and the Progressives distorted and devious plan for fundamental change in our country. It is abundantly clear their designs for government are about controlling the lives of the American…

    Reign In the Federal Government


    Simple: to bring power back to the states and the people, where it belongs. Unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. shouldn’t be allowed to make sweeping decisions that impact millions of Americans. But right now, they do. So it all boils down to one question: Who do you think should decide what’s best for you and your family? You, or the feds? We’d vote for the American people every single time.
