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. The GOUSA Opportunity Score® Political Credit RatingTM system is based on these five core principles.
We Follow the GOUSA Five-Point Opportunity Star
1. Personal Opportunity
Representing “…Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness” & our Constitutional freedoms, every other point depends on these truths. Without liberty, we have no freedom, no security, and no prosperity. We support personal privacy rights and oppose the broad expansion of government, its increasing use of unconstitutional power and control, political censorship and court packing, and will hold our elected officials accountable. We value life, support rights for early term abortion (first trimester) and oppose late-term, partial birth and post-birth abortions. 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 unchecked power of corporate monopolies & technology oligarchs, increasing the national debt, and fraud, waste and corruption in government. We also oppose expanded government ownership and control of industry and the economy / socialism.
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 identity and racial politics, and oppose divisive politics including the Left’s Critical Race Theory and Critical Gender Theory. We support the 2-parent nuclear family, affordable, accessible, and quality (market-driven) health care, prison reform, and assistance for veterans, the elderly, the disabled, disadvantaged youth and those most in need. The philosophy of a hand-up, not a hand-out.
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 & 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 & women, ending endless wars, supporting our police, fire and first responders and remaining a country of laws and enforcement, border security, lawful immigration, stemming border crime and drugs, supporting transparent, free & fair elections and voter ID laws, and supporting sensible, free market and science-based environmental and renewable energy solutions while regaining American energy independence.
