Message, Activism Fuel Rapid Party Growth
Boulder, CO - The America First Party continues its rapid growth. Party leaders attribute this rapid growth to the party's strong and consistent message, the betrayal of American values and trust of the American people by the two-party duopoly, and the grassroots and electronic activism of party
The Party's consistent message is resonating with many of the American people. The Party recognizes that the first step to protect our culture and our nation is to secure the borders and implement a rational immigration policy. The Party is promoting trade, tax, and fiscal policies that focus on what is best for all the American people, not just those who can contribute large sums to the two parties. The Party is committed to the traditional values that are the cornerstone of our nation and its Constitution, which our nation's founders knew were what made it possible for people to govern themselves. To many, the Democrats and Republicans seem to be jostling over which can be most effective in destroying the nation designed by our Founding Fathers.
People who care about this country are beginning to realize there is a third party that is viable and can effectively defeat the planned convergence of thought supported by the Democrats and Republicans. They are joining that Party in droves. The America First Party has seen a tremendous increase in its membership, with members in more than 40 states.
The America First Party website (www.americafirstparty.org) is becoming an increasingly popular place for those Americans sick of the "say one thing, do another" Republicans and Democrats. In the past six months, both hits and bandwidth have doubled, and the Party is seeing as much as 320,000 visits to
its internet home per month. There, people are finding hope and a vision with which they can agree.
In early February, John Francis stepped down as National Chair for personal reasons, and National Treasurer Maureen McHugh completed her term of office. Founding National Chair Dan Charles was elected to finish Mr. Francis' term and John Pittman Hey was elected to replace Mrs. McHugh. Both Mr. Francis and Mrs. McHugh are still involved in their state parties and continue to be valuable members of the party. Mrs. McHugh retained her seat on the National Committee.
