Our Mission

We’re dedicated to the principle that all persons have equal and common rights in the earth and its resources, and each individual has an exclusive right to the income from his or her own labor and capital investment. Therefore, we are committed to reducing and replacing taxes on labor, capital, and wealth, and to using the value of land and other natural resources to pay for essential government services. We believe this to be essential to the attainment of liberty, justice, and economic opportunity for all.
