Reform Party Essay


The reform party views on the “C.H.E.E.S.I.E.” issues are what I would call generally conservative, but certainly not overtly right wing. They are fairly clear cut in saying that they believe in a government that is very principled and just and as democratic as possible. The American Reform Party believes that the liberty and freedom we enjoy is not void of responsibility that goes along with it, and that Americans must live up to that in order to make the government for the people.


The reform party feels that although the government has done a lot of good for the educational system, power must go back to the people. It encourages the independent, non-partisan dialogue. There should be a panel of experts that make information on the educational system readily available to the public.


as far as social issues go, the reform party does not get involved. They will not become involved in your life and issues involving religion, sexual orientation, abortion, or marriage laws. This would mean that there could be legal gay marriages of course, and the undebated right of women to choose.



In the matter of health care, the opinion of the reform party is to allow patients to take their treatment largely into their own hands. It also includes doing a consensus and pilot test on programs before putting them on patients in general. The reform party largely wants to give as much power as possible back to the people, and this goes along with it well.


The reform party also promotes protecting the enviroment. They promote using technology that is safe for the air, and encourages improving the quality of air in all ways possible. They also promote keeping natural parks and monuments safe for the future of our country, and keeping them in best condition and protecting them.


The views on crime are largely based against sex offenders, and they support enforcing megan’s law, which requires strict laws about keeping a database on sex offenders which would be easily accessed by police forces and other officials. They support making much harsher crimes against those who hurt children or commit any crime against a child. Lastly they also encourage increasing small claims court to the maximum of 20, 000 dollars in order to keep petty claims out of big courts so that more important cases can be put going without interruptions so much.


The view on the economy from the reform party is in my opinion well put. They believe in balancing the budget annually by passing the Balanced Budget Act, and also providing a detailed blueprint of the budget that the public can easily understand and comprehend. If the public can understand it, then they can certainly get more involved and they will be more enthusiastic about making the country better fiscally. The reform party also wants to make the tax system paperless, less complicated and fairer to both the rich and poor. This could possibly be achieved by making a uniform tax rate in their opinion.


International policy opinions of the reform party include things such as creating normal relations with Cuba, consdering that they create better laws for their people. This leads me to another policy encourage. They promote only trading with countries that support ethical laws and practices for the people.


Regarding immigration, the reform party promotes only allowing 200,000 immigrants per year, and restricting family reunification to spouses and children that are minors.
