LPA Mission

The Leadership Project for America (LPA) identifies and evaluates principled, effective leadership for the United States.

America stands at a crossroads, in desperate need of political leadership to rally citizens around a vision that draws upon all that is great about this country.

That vision includes free markets to unleash our competitive spirit and create economic growth and prosperity; a national security and foreign policy agenda that protects and promotes America’s interests around the world; and a unique system of limited, constitutional government that protects our freedoms, encourages decency and brings out the best in all of us.

LPA Principles

  • Opportunity for All: requires a growing economy, a strong education system, and intelligent immigration reform.
  • Fairness for All: requires government spending discipline, a simpler tax system, and an end to corporate welfare and cronyism.
  • Defending the Vulnerable: requires a trustworthy safety net, encouragement of a culture that promotes earned success, and a more stable economy.
  • Security and Safety: requires loyalty to our allies, firmness versus our adversaries, and free and open global trade.
  • American Exceptionalism: derives from a belief in family, faith, vocation, community, and equal opportunity.
