American Solutions, an organization founded by Newt Gingrich in 2007, is now pushing its agenda on state Republican Party delegates. The “solutions” focus little on reducing the size of government, but on American popular opinion. The top ten issues of the platform are listed here.
According to NolanChart, “In the week leading up to the convention, a coalition of Ron Paul Meetup group activists and members of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Michigan came together to examine the document. The conclusion by the membership of these groups was that this ‘Platform’ was both anti-liberty and in direct conflict with the principles of the Republican Party. The members of these two groups took it upon themselves to inform the approximately 2000 delegates that this proposal should be opposed.”
In the end, the proposals were rejected. Unfortunately, delegates at GOP Conventions in Virginia and Wisconsin accepted over 70 planks of the American Solutions Platform.
