Support for humanitarian efforts for Iraqi civilians

The Modern Whig Party of America supports U.S. humanitarian aid and relief efforts to prevent dehydration and starvation of Iraqi civilians. Many of these civilians are facing indiscriminate persecution and murder at the hands of ISIS. The Modern Whig Party should support the use of U.S. airstrikes designed to protect and prevent the slaughter of Iraqi civilians. The Modern Whig Party should also support the use of U.S. forces to aid in any possible evacuation of civilians if need be.

Modern Whig Party of Kentucky and Modern Whig Party of America “endorse” Gil Fulbright for U.S. Senate

August 2, The Modern Whig Party of Kentucky and the Modern Whig Party of America  are proud to announce their endorsement in the 2014 Kentucky Senate race. Though Republican incumbent Mitch McConnell and Democratic challenger Allison Lundergan-Grimes are the most prominent names on the ballot, we feel as though political newcomer Gil Fulbright is more deserving of our endorsement and “votes”.

Modern Whig Party Creating an Army of Volunteer Support for Veterans Seeking Healthcare

On Monday, July 28, US Congress unveiled an agreement through the House and Senate Veterans Affairs committees to reform the beleaguered Veterans Administration. The measure comes in the wake of a recent scandal involving health care access, whistleblower retaliation, and cover-up. At least 40 deaths are attributed to delays at the Phoenix facility alone. And, according to an internal VA audit, more than 120,000 veterans faced lengthy wait times or given no care at all.

Of Presidents, Politics and People from Other Places

My family hails from Ireland. My mother's parents emigrated to America from County Mayo; my father's, from County Cork. They came to this country early in the 20th Century, in the third big wave or so of immigrants from their country, and found themselves joining a culture which regarded them as little more than the "servant class."

Little Things Help

Little Things Help…

 

     Part of being the Director of Veterans and Active Duty Affairs for the Modern Whig Party is finding ways for people to help our troops.  I get a lot of questions about which organizations people should donate to, and whether an organization is trustworthy or not.  One of the first organizations that comes to mind is the United Service Organization (USO).

Let's Give 'Em a Hand

Today, as on every Veterans Day, America honored the men and women of the Armed Services. It's surely heartening for our veterans to see the numerous expressions of gratitude on social media, hear the praise of pundits and citizens alike, and generally feel the affection of a grateful nation. It's nice to know you're appreciated.

But once the applause dies down, some stark realities show themselves. The unemployment rate for veterans still remains stubbornly high, and veterans of Gulf War II are still unemployed at a higher rate than the overall civilian population. The story for veterans between the ages of 18 and 24 is particularly gruesome: in 2013, 24.3 percent were without jobs.

What We Believe

The Modern Whigs are a pragmatic, common sense, centrist-oriented party where rational solutions trump ideology and integrity trumps impunity.

Our core modern Whig philosophy relies on several fundamental tenets:

Where We Stand

Because Whigs value differences of opinion and independent thought, we do not necessarily take a position on every particular issue that may be fashionable for the moment. Instead, we propose a program of broad reforms that we believe will strengthen our country as it faces the challenges of the 21st century.
