The Federalist Coalition exists to promote, through public discourse, social advocacy, and education, the ideals of federalism, liberty, and a return to shared sovereignty amongst the several states and the federal government.
Federalism is a philosophy based on shared sovereignty amongst the several states and the federal government. Its ideals are best exemplified in the Federalist Papers, composed by John Jay, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison. A strong federal government is needed to provide for the protection of the people and the preservation of peace and liberty within the country. However, history reveals that the people are best suited when the power of the federal government is checked both internally and by the state governments which share power with it. To this end, the Federalist Coalition recognizes that that delicate balance has, over time, been made uneven in favor of the federal government. This organization seeks to return that balance by the following actions:
- Educating the American people on the basis and importance of federalism as a governing philosophy.
- Advocating for the repeal of laws that throw off the necessary balance or are outright unconstitutional.
- Encouraging Americans take pride in themselves, their work, their communities, and their country.
