The United States Equalitarian Party Supports a Well-Financed National Defense
Civic Education Make for Better Civilians and Service Members
At no time will the condition of the military be such that it consumes less than 5% of the gross domestic product (GDP). One twentieth of what we make and sell as a nation in any given year is a small price to pay for protecting the rights and freedoms we as citizens all enjoy. An acknowledged, regulated, and uninterrupted flow of national assets allocated to the nation’s defense budget will help provide for and protect our nation’s armed forces.
Civilian Control of the Military
Given, the level of funding required to fund military operations, it will be the responsibility of the military to provide pay, housing, and sustenance for its forces. The military forces will be united as one organization with separate but jointly coordinated specialized functions (e.g. air, space, land, sea, etc.). Budgets, legal, medical, national level command structures, etc., would all be joint using common standards to reduce wasteful spending. The current practice of having officer and enlisted corps will be abolished. In its place, a transitional single rank structure (e.g., Armed Forces (AF) AF-1 to AF-15) would be established to ensure equally accessible rank and pay to all members of the armed forces.
An Equal Opportunity for All Who Serve
From a leadership and managerial perspective, a unified corps will also remove the use of fear of legal consequence from a separate class of assumed superiors against a lower class of workers to gain compliance instead of securing follower-ship through displayed leadership and earned respect to obtain and maintain authority.
