Actress Stacey Dash has launched her own political movement after growing increasingly frustrated with the state of politics in the U.S.
The Clueless star and outspoken Republican hasn't been afraid to voice her opinions on hot topics such as race, equal pay, climate change, and transgender rights in recent months, and now she's putting all her convictions into her own political movement, Dash America.
On Sunday (26Jun16), Stacey took to her website to announce her new project, telling supporters she's so fed up with the people running the country that she has decided to spearhead a party of her own.
"Political elites have divided our country and seek to pit us against each other," she wrote. "Liberals sell us cheap fictional freedoms, while stripping away our true God-given freedoms and liberty. Women are told empowerment means being a victim and are coerced into subscribing to the paltry progressives’ definition of feminism. Minorities are told that the only way we can make it out of poverty is to accept handouts. But I don’t buy into any of these lies.
"And that is why I have launched my new website and movement - Dash America. I believe that instead of allowing others to divide us and hold us down, we must empower one another to rise up and unite for the sake of our great nation and the values that have made us the strongest country in the world, a true beacon of freedom for all people and all nations under God for centuries."
She insists Dash America will be "an exhilarating political movement" focused on unity, faith, family values, and feminism, adding, "I believe we need to cling to the motto and founding principle of the United States - E Pluribus Unum: Out of Many, One. We are a nation of many races and backgrounds, but we’ve forgotten about unity. Let’s re-forge our unity through freedom, opportunity, and education regardless of race."
She concludes her rallying cry with the line: "It’s never too soon, and never too late to embrace the best traditions and the best chance for future. Will you join me?"
