Andrew Yang and New Start-up, America’s First Self- Funding Political Party, W

Fellow Americans! When is the gun carnage going to stop? With the recent mass shootings in Texas and Ohio and the start of a new school year, every parent is now in fear that their child could actually end their school day in a body bag.

When are the politicians of both parties, Republican and Democratic, going to be held accountable?

Take a second to reflect on how New Zealand reacted to the recent tragic Christchurch mass shootings. Swift, effective action to restrict gun use.

As was the case with both the UK following the 1996 Dunblane outrage and Australia after the 1996 Port Arthur massacre.

It is then completely obvious that every mass shooting in the U.S., Donald Trump and the bulk of hypocrite politicians, caught up in the hypnotic cash-gaze of the likes of the NRA, will only ever offer their condolences and absolutely nothing more.

The insatiable appetite of politicians for money clearly outweighs their faux concerns for the safety of the public. The chilling reality of contemporary American politics is that dark money from mostly evil corporations now dictates policy.

Unlike the GOP and DNC, Tip Political Party does not accept contributions from corporations, lobbyists or individuals, we make our money the old fashion way-we earn it.

A self funded political coupled with Yang's Freedom Dividend is the only way forward.

As is generally well-known, the concept of individual liberty is at the heart of the American democratic system and is enshrined not only in collective body-politic subsequent to the Revolution, but is also codified in the Constitution. What is also generally well-known is that the US is in the midst of an ongoing gun-violence epidemic. In 2017, guns killed close to 40,000 people in the US – the highest figure in 50 years. How is it that such dreadful figures are allowed to occur? The Second Amendment of the Constitution reads:

“A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” While the interpretation of those 27 words have been open to seeming perennial debate ever since being penned in 1791, what is not up for debate is the consistently high number of gun related deaths every year in the US. What many in the ranks of the GOP and the NRA fail to recognize is that the Second Amendment was penned at a time when the smell of gun-powder from the Revolutionary War was still fresh in the nostrils. The specter of the return of the Redcoats was then still very real, as was evident just a few years later in the War of 1812 – 1814. However, that was then. This is now. While there are some challengers on the horizon, the US is the world’s only true superpower. The only country that would be militarily capable of defeating the US would be, the US. For those Second Amendment literalists who argue that mass gun ownership guarantees Americans from “tyranny” form their own government, then they truly need to stop and think as to exactly what they are suggesting.

The US has the most sophisticated military in the world – stealth weaponry, special forces, nucl
