Restore the Republic

Let’s work together to preserve America for our future and children’s future and restore the founding principles.

Who Are We?

We are a family of patriots who stand on the same foundation of faith that our Founding Fathers did.  It has been the position of many in the organization that the political party system was the problem and yet we still participated in it.  In 1998 the Independent American Party had outgrown its humble origins of a state party and became a national party.  The IAP gained traction quickly but ran into roadblocks put in place by the government to prevent third parties from competing.  Good ideas, visions, and hard work were not enough to overcome the legislative hurdles in all 50 states to even become a state party.  National recognition was not enough in itself. 

While apathy, pandemics, and death caused major disruptions in our national way of life it also decimated the ranks of our leadership and direction.  In February of 2023 the remaining members of the IAP were invited to attend the National Conference and choose new leadership and start the process of reorganization.  Washington State Coordinator Lonny Ray Williams was selected as National Chairman.  Lonny Ray’s bold leadership style, common sense approach, focus on the family, and experience was what the IAP needed.

After an initial assessment, interviews, and analysis, Chairman Williams charted a course for reorganization based on the sound wisdom of George Washington’s Farewell Address.  The political parties and the party system mentality are responsible for the destruction of this nation.  To survive into the future, National Leadership has embraced fifteen principles of good government and five pillars of liberty etched in the National Monument to our Forefathers.  We oppose and reject any party structure that seeks to consolidate political power into organizations and not in the people themselves.  A return to principled support of Independent Americans who are not beholden to a party is where the future of this nation lies.  It is time to leave political parties behind and empower individuals to represent we the people first.

Our National Leadership has reorganized under the 1st Amendment in an ad hoc manner to stand up new State Coordinators across the country and to transform into a bottom-up grassroots movement of patriots who are restoring the Republic to its proper order.  Join us in the fight of our lives to restore the Republic for our families and for our neighbors.

Our Mission

Is to promote respect for life, liberty, and property; strong traditional families; patriotism; and individual, state, and national sovereignty — with a strong reliance on the Declaration of Independence and allegiance to the Constitution for the United States of America — by petition to God and by political and educational means.
Thomas Jefferson -
“If the debt which the banking companies owe be a blessing to anybody, it is to themselves alone"
Benjamin Franklin -
"Hence ’Tis a Common Observation here that our Cause is the Cause of all Mankind; and that we are fighting for their Liberty in defending our own. ’Tis a glorious Task assign’d us by Providence; ."
John F Kennedy -
"The same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe--the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God."
George Washington -
"For if Men are to be precluded from offering their Sentiments on a matter, which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences, that can invite the consideration of Mankind, reason is of no use to us; the freedom of Speech may be taken away, and, dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep, to the Slaughter."
Maximilien Robespierre -
"The Secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping then ignorant."

The Platform

Independent Americans from across the nation are suffering from the persecution of the traditional American family at the hands of our own government.  The Independent American Patriots was founded on fifteen principles of good government and has adopted the five pillars of liberty enshrined in granite on the National Monument to the Forefathers as our working model to restore the Republic.  We use our nation’s Founding Documents and additional correspondence and available records from the beginning of our country to model our platform on.

The traditional American family, Natural Law, and Personal Responsibility are key areas of focus for us now along with key national, economic, legislative, judicial, and geopolitical cornerstone issues.  Our new platform is currently being revised by our Platform Committee led by 3rd Vice Chair Leo Lindquist.
