Declaration Of Principles

The Social Liberal Party strives for a free and fair society in which the individual is respected. It is important for the government to work with the private sector and regulate the economy to encourage fairness, protect the lives and rights of the citizenry, preserve equality under the law, and root out corruption within its halls. The government can and should be a force for good, but it is up to the citizen to keep it so. We stand for the voiceless and the downtrodden, the working man and his family, the Elizian who wonders how he can survive with so much debt, we stand for the businessmen who can’t afford to pay his employees so he cuts his own salary, we stand for the retiree who is unsure of his financial stability, we stand for the widowed mother who is afraid how she will feed her children, we stand for ELIZIA.

You'd better believe I'm a bitter Bernie Sanders supporter. The Dems fucked up and fucked up hard. Hopefully they'll learn that neoliberalism and maintaining the status quo isn't the way to win this election or any other one. I doubt they will, though.

Not to be mean, but the logo isn't all that good looking, either.

Being a political party in an unstable nation, we expect to be attacked. So we armoured our HQ, and the windows are bomb resistant. You did not break our window.
