INDEPENDENT DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM.
ADOPTED AT PITTSBURGH, AUGUST 12,1852.
Having assembled in National Conven
tion as tile delegates of the Free Democra
cy of the United States, united by a com
mon resolve to maintain right against
wrongs, and freedom against slavery; con
tiding in the intelligence, patriotism, and
the discriminating justice ot the American
people i putting our trust in God lor the
triumph of our cause, and invoking his
guidance iu our endeavors to advancc it,
we now submit to the candid judgment cm
all men the following declaration ol prin
ciples and measures:
I. That Governments, deriving their just
powers from the consent of the governed
are instituted among men to secure to all,
those inalienable rights of life, liberty, and
the pursuit of happiness, with which they
were endowed by their Creator, and of
which none can be deprived by valid legis
lation, except fur crime.
II. That the true mission of American
Democracy is to maintain the liberties of
the people, the sovereignty of the States,
and the perpetuity of .the Union, by the
impartial application to public affairs, with
out sectional discriminations, of the hin
daniental principles of equal rights, strict
justice, and economical administration.
III. That the Federal Government is
one of limited powers, derived solely from
the Constitution ; and the grants of power
therein ought to be strictly construed by
all the departments and agents of the Gov
ernment, and it is inexpedient and dan
gerous to exercise doubtful constitutional
IV. That the Constitution ol the United
States, ordained to form a more perfect
union, to establish justice, and secure the
blessings of liberty, expressly denies to
the General Government all power to de
prive any person of life, liberty, or prop
erty, without due process of law; and,
therefore, the Government, having no more
power to make a slave than to make a
king, and no more power to establish sla
very than to establish monarchy, should at
once proceed to relieve itself Ironi all re- j
Hponsibility for the existence of slavery
wherever it possesses constitutional power
to legislate for its extinction.
V. That, to the persevering and impor
tunate demands oi the Slave Power for
more slave States, new slave Territories,
and the nationalization of Slavery, our dis
tinct and final answer is?no more slave
States, no slave Territory, no nationalized
Slavery, and no national legislation for the
extradition of slaves. ? ^ ,
VI. That Slavery is a sin against <?od
and a crime against man, which no human
enactment nor usage can make right; and
that Christianity, humanity, and patriotism,
alike demand its abolition.
VII. That the fugitive Slave Aft of lHaO
is repugnant to the Constitution, to the
principles of the common law, to the
Hpirit of Christianity, and to the senti
ments of the civilized world. We there
fore deny its binding force upon the
American People, and demand its imme
diate and total repeal.
VIII. That the doctrine that any human
law is a finality, and not subject to modi
fication or repeal, is not in accordance
with the. creed of the founders of our Gov
ernment, and is dangerous to the liberties
of the people.
IX. That the acts of Congress known
as the Compromise Measures of 1850, by
making the admission ol a sovereign State
contingent upon the adoption of other
measures demanded by the special inter
est of Slavery ; by their omission to guar
anty freedom in free Territories ; by their
attempt to impose unconstitutional limit
ations on the power of Congress and the
people to admit new States ; by their pro
visions for the assumption of five millions
of the State debt of Texas, and for the
payment of five millions more, and the
cession of a large territory to the same
State under menace, as au inducement to
the relinquishment ol a groundless claim,
and by their invasion of the sovereignty
of the States and the liberties of the peo
ple, through the enactment of an unjust,
oppressive, and unconstitutional Fugitive
Slave Law, are proved to be inconsistent
with all the principles and maxims of De
mocracy, and wholly inadequate to the
settlement of the questions of which they
are claimed to be an adjustment.
X. That no permanent settlement of
the Slavery question can be looked for,
except in the practical recognition of the
truth that Slavery is sectional, ami Free
dom national; by the total separation of
the General Government from Slavery, and
the exercise of its legitimate and consti
tutional iulluence on the side of Freedom;
and by leaving to the States, the whole
subject of Slavery and the extradition of
fugitives from service.
XI. That all men have a natural right to
a portion of the soil; and that, as the use
of the soil is indispensable to life, the
right of alt men to the soil is as sacred as
their right to life itself.
XII. That the public lands of the Uni
ted States belong to the people, and should
not be sold to individuals nor granted to
corporations, but should be held as a sa
cred trust for the benelit of the people,
and should be granted in limited quanti
ties, free of cost, to landless settlers.
XIII. That a due regard for the Federal
Constitution, and sound administrative
policy, demand that the funds of the Gen
eral Government be kept separate from
banking institutions; that inland and
ocean postage should be reduced to the
lowest possible point; that no more reve
nue should be raised than is required to
delray the strictly necessary expenses of
the public service, and to pay oft' the pub
lic debt; and that the power and patron
age of the Government should be dimin
ished by the abolition of all unnecessary
ottices, salaries, and privileges, and by the
election by the people of all civil officers
in the service of the United States, so far
as may be consistent with the prompt and
efficient transaction of the public business.
XIV. That river and harbor improve
ments, when necessary to the safety and
convenience of commerce with foreign
nations or among the several States, are
objects of national concern, and it is the
duty of Congress, in the exercise of its
constitutional powers, to provide for the
XV. That em grants and exiles from
the Old World should find a cordial wel
come to homes of comfort and fields of
enterprise in the New ; and every attempt
to abridge their privilege of becoming
citizens and owners of the soil among us
ought to be resisted.with inflexible deter
XVI. That every nation has a clear
right to alter or change its own Govern
ment, and to administer its own concerns
in such manner as may best secure the
rights and promote the happiness of the
people, and foreign interference with
that right is a dangerous violation of the
law of nations, against which all independ
ent Governments should protest, and en
deavor by all proper means to prevent;
and especially is it the duty of the Ameri
can Government, representing the chief
Republic of the world, to protest against,
and by all proper means to prevent,
the intervention of Kings and Emperors
against nations seeking to establish for
themselves republican or constitutional
XVII. That the independence of Hayti |
ought to l?e recognised by our Govern
ment, and our commercial relations with
it placed on the footing of the most favor
XVIII. That as, by the Constitution,
'I the citizens of each State shall be en
titled to all privileges and immunities of
citizens of the several States," the prac
tice of imprisoning colored seamen of
other States, while the vessels to which
, they belong lie in port, and refusing to
J exercise the right to bring such cases be
fore the Supreme Court of the United
| States, to test the legality of such pro
ceedings, is a flagrant violation of the
Constitution, and an invasion of the rights
of the citizens of olther States, utterly in
consistent with the professions maoe by
the slaveholders, that they wish the pro
? visions of the Constitution faithfully ob
served by every State ill the Union.
XIX. That we recommend, the intro
duction into all treaties, hereafter to be
negotiated between the United States and
foreign nations, of some provision for the
amicable settlement of difficulties by a re
sort to decisive arbitration.
XX. That the Free Democratic party is
not organized to aid either the Whig or
Democratic wing of the great Slave Com
promise party of the nation, but to defeat
I hem both ; and that repudiating and re
nouncing both, as hopelessly corrupt, and
utterly unworthy of confidence, the pur
pose of the Free Democracy is to take
possession of the Federal Government,
ami administer it for the better protection
of the rights and interests of the whole
XXf. That we inscribe on our banner,
Fuse Soil, Frkk Speech, Free Labor'
and Fhee Men, and under it will fight on
and fight ever, until a triumphant victory
shall reward our exertions.
XXII. That upon this Platform the Con
vention presents to the American People,
as a candidate for the office of President
of the United States, John P. Hale, of
New Hampshire, and as a candidate for
the office of Vice President of the United
States, George W. Julian, of Indiana,
and earnestly commends them to the sup
port of all freemen and parties.
