GOUSA® 5 Points of Opportunity
GOUSA’s vision for America is based on the universal principles of Opportunity for ALL. The five-point OPPORTUNITY STAR represents the Five Points of Opportunity, from top down clockwise, reflecting a set of Constitutional, Pro-Opportunity principles that enjoy support from the majority of voters. The GOUSA OppScore® Political Credit RatingTM system is based on these principles.
We Follow the GOUSA Five-Point Opportunity Star
1. Personal Opportunity
Representing “…Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness” and our Constitutional freedoms. Every other point depends on these truths. Without liberty, we have no freedom, no security, and no prosperity. We value life and support the 1st Amendment, 2nd Amendment and other Amendments to the Constitution, our personal privacy rights and states’ rights. We oppose the broad expansion of the federal government and its increasing use of unconstitutional power, political censorship and court packing. We will hold our elected officials accountable. This point sits prominently atop the five-point Opportunity Star.
2. Economic Opportunity
Representing free market economics, domestic job growth, lower taxes, fair trade, common-sense regulations, and a pro-small business government agenda. We oppose the unchecked power of technology monopolies and corporate oligarchs, increasing the national debt, and fraud, waste and corruption in government. We also oppose socialist economic planning and expanded government ownership and control of industry and the economy.
3. Social Opportunity
Representing equal civil rights for people of all backgrounds, races, ages, religions, orientations, lifestyles, classes and political beliefs. We oppose all forms of bigotry and divisive identity and racial politics, including Critical Race Theory. We support the 2-parent nuclear family – same or opposite sex -, and affordable and accessible market-driven health care for all via both a government public option and private plans, prison reform, and assistance for veterans, the elderly, the disabled, disadvantaged youth & the most vulnerable in our society (American citizens).
4. Educational Opportunity
Representing the best education for our children through school choice, school vouchers, and more parental involvement in the classroom, teaching factual American history, US politics and civics in schools – and not political indoctrination -, free speech on campus, supporting vocational schools, charter schools, STEM studies, and economically viable career paths, and addressing the high cost of tuition through college and government reforms.
5. National Opportunity
Representing securing our nation’s safety through U.S. military strength and readiness, supporting our servicemen and women, ending endless wars, supporting our police, fire and first responders and remaining a country of laws and enforcement, supporting border security, lawful immigration, stemming border crime and drugs, demanding transparent, free and fair elections and voter ID laws, and supporting sensible and science-based environmental and renewable energy solutions while regaining American energy independence.
