Constitution of Belize Green Independent Party. -BGIP-
by Party Leader Luis Blas Mendez Sr.
We declare the Constitution of Belize Green Independent Party -BGIP- to be predicated on the principles of :-
The Declaration of Independence, and
The Constitution of Belize.
According to the original intent of the Founding Fathers, these founding documents are the foundation of our Liberty and the Supreme Law of the Land.
The sole purpose of government, as stated in the Declaration of Independence, is to secure our unalienable rights given us by our Creator. When Government grows beyond this scope, it is usurpation, and liberty is compromised.
We believe the major issues we face today are best solved by a renewed allegiance to the original intent of these founding documents.
The Constitution Party gratefully acknowledges the blessing of our Lord God the Almighty as Creator, Preserver and Ruler of the Universe and of Belize. We hereby appeal to Him for mercy, aid, comfort, guidance and the protection of His Providence as we work to restore and preserve the our jewel Belize.
This great nation was founded by Christians; for this very reason peoples of other faiths have been and are afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.
The goal of the New Party - is to restore Belize as the tranquil haven of democracy that brought freedom from slavery oppression's rod by the might of truth and the grace of God.
The Constitution of Belize established a Nation rooted in Biblical law, administered by representatives who are constitutionally elected by the citizens. In such a Nation all Life, Liberty and Property are protected because law rules. Belize should be a wonder of Independent thoughts, wisdom, freedom, sovereignty, that give happiness and a manly character where women are treated more fairly and be treated so as to maintain her personal dignity. So that her child feel happy for to such mother.

Bring Government Back Home, The closer civil government is to the people, the more responsible, responsive, and accountable it is likely to be.
b. Party Structure
National Party Congress :- The New Party Congress is largely made up of delegates from the Party's other constituent rank structures and is the Party's highest organ. The root delegates will be selected at random with an amount according to the electorate in the constituencies of the electoral division, with the approval of the Party Leader.

We favor the right of the state to execute criminals convicted of capital crimes and to require restitution for the victims of criminals after a referendum has been done in this subject.
We are opposed to "hate crime" legislation and to enhanced penalties for so called hate crimes.
We oppose unilateral disarmament and dismemberment of Belize's defense infrastructure. That which is hastily torn down will not be easily rebuilt.
Under no circumstances would we commit Belize forces to serve under any foreign flag or command, unless under the United Nation.
The goal of Belize security policy is to defend the national security interests of the Nation of Belize. Therefore, except in time of declared war, for the purposes of state security, no local national guard or reserve troops shall be called upon to support or conduct operations in foreign theatres.
We should be the friend of liberty everywhere, but the guarantor and provisioner of ours alone.
We call for the maintenance of a state-of-the-art military on land, sea, in the air, and in space. We urge the executive and legislative branches to continue to provide for the modernization of our armed forces, in keeping with advancing technologies and a constantly changing world situation. We believe that all defense expenditures should be directly related to the protection of our nation, and that every item of expenditure must be carefully reviewed to eliminate foreign aid, waste, fraud, theft, inefficiency, and excess profits from all defense contracts and military expenditures.
We find no reason to sign in with a 'yes' to go to court if we the defendant owe nothing according to United Nations verdict of our freedom. Who should go to court is United Kingdom and Guatemala about their failed accords and debts. We should struggle to our national socio economic liberation by promoting socially inclusive independence in our homeland. The drive toward economic nationalism is only part of the general revival of nationalism in Belize. We should struggle to our national socio economic liberation by promoting socially inclusive independence in our homeland. The drive toward economic nationalism is only part of the general revival of nationalism in Belize. Guatemala has been another force that has hindered Belize in its economical evolution; we have to solve this dispute.
A political organization with a great manifesto isn't worth a great deal if it teaches young people how to make a living with jobs but doesn't teach them how to make a life.
Even though in this world economic meltdown jobs are essential for our survival we should stretch more for the sake of our future consolidation as a nation. Enhancing our mind makes people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; easy to govern, but impossible to enslave. We should struggle to our national socio economic liberation by promoting socially inclusive independence in our homeland. The drive toward economic nationalism is only part of the general revival of nationalism in Belize. We can conceive that Belize as a nation was born in iniquity, for us as a whole we didn’t embrace it in one fist. Since we got a bilateral Independence and not a unilateral Independence as our legitimate right the prospectus of Belize in due time crumbled by the conception of secret agreements conceived in sin. A BGIP government shall put gardens in all schools where revenues of vegetables shall be use to upgrade the library. We shall have more info in protecting youngsters from gang street fights and vendettas. Mature our fundamentals within a society's truthful reality vrs a doctrinarian reality reality of the PUDP. We shall all be free, sovereign and Independent Belizeans.
