The American Solidarity Party (ASP) is a Christian-democratic political party in the United States.[2][3][10] It was founded in 2011 and officially incorporated in 2016. The party has a Solidarity National Committee (SNC) and has numerous active state and local chapters.[10][12] Brian Carroll was the party's nominee in the 2020 presidential election.

The ASP encourages social development along the lines of subsidiarity and sphere sovereignty, with a stated emphasis on "the importance of strong families, local communities, and voluntary associations".[13] It favors fiscally progressive policies[6][10][14] with a distributist flavor,[4][5] that seeks "widespread economic participation and ownership"[5] and providing a social safety net program.

Names and symbols[edit]

The party's original name was inspired by its European counterparts, the Polish trade union Solidarity,[15] and the current one reflects its more developed ideology and focus in the years since.[10]

The ASP mascot is the pelican, a traditional symbol of charity.[16] The party's political color is orange, like other Christian-democratic political parties.

Some members of the American Solidarity Party refer to themselves as Solidarists.[17]

History, ideology, and influences[edit]

The ASP was founded in 2011 as the Christian Democratic Party USA (CDPUSA).[10] In 2012, the CDPUSA endorsed the independent candidacy of Joe Schriner for president.[18] In December of 2020, the American Solidarity Party joined the board of the Coalition for Free and Open Elections (COFOE).[19]

The American Solidarity Party has been characterized as conservative on social issues while supporting government intervention in economic matters.[8][20] They support a universal healthcare system as well as an economy containing widespread distribution of productive property, in particular increased worker ownership and management of their production.[21][22] The ASP is skeptical of free trade and free market trade policies.[23]

Membership and leadership in the American Solidarity Party is open to people of all backgrounds, creeds, etc. The American Solidarity Party largely adheres to the ideology of Christian democracy[2] with some social-democratic leanings.[example needed][10] Christian democracy as a political ideology has been largely influenced by Catholic social teaching, such as the teaching of subsidiarity and its related concepts. As such, the ASP looks to the Christian democratic movements in Europe and the Americas.[24]

Daniel Silliman writes that the American Solidarity Party, as with other Christian-democratic political parties, draws from Catholic social teaching.[25] In the same vein, David McPherson says that the American Solidarity Party "affirm[s] ... the full spectrum of Catholic social teaching (namely, the teachings regarding the sanctity of human life, the common good, subsidiarity, religious freedom, solidarity, etc.)," contrasting the ASP to both the Republican Party and the Democratic Party, each of which recognizes only some of these items.[26] Its strongest support is in California, Ohio, and Texas, according to the Madera Tribune (of Madera, California).[24]

Members of the ASP have launched an unofficial grassroots online publication called The American Commons.[27]
