GOUSA’s vision for America is based on the principles of Unity, Liberty and Opportunity for All. The five-point OPPORTUNITY STAR represents the Five Points of Opportunity, from top down clockwise. Our Five Point Opportunity Rating system for politicians is detailed below.
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 oppose the expansion of government, its increasing use of unconstitutional power and control, and will hold our elected officials accountable. We value life and oppose late-term 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-business government agenda. We oppose unchecked power of corporate monopolies & technology oligarchs, and fraud, waste and corruption in government. We also oppose the regressive Left’s economic policies and socialist agenda – known as “dictator economics.”
3. Social Opportunity.
Representing equal civil rights for people of all backgrounds, races, ages, religions, orientations, lifestyles and political beliefs. We oppose all forms of bigotry, identity and racial politics, and the Left’s critical race 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, parental involvement in the classroom, teaching factual American history, US politics & civics and in schools, free speech on campus, supporting technical trade schools and economically viable degrees & career paths, and addressing high cost of tuition through college and government reforms.
5. National Opportunity.
Representingsecuring our nation’s safety through U.S. military strength and readiness, space exploration, supporting our servicemen & women, our local fire & police, border security, lawful immigration, stemming border crime and drugs, protecting our elections, and supporting sensible, free market and science-based environmental solutions. We must remain a nation of laws and enforcement.
