The political position of the American Solidarity Party is socially conservative and economically distributist.
Just as a summary.
Therefore, the ASP holds to socially conservative views such as adhering to a pro-life position with regard to abortion, capital punishment and euthanasia, as well as opposition to same-sex marriage and opposition to pornography.
Yes, good; it has mostly traditional, Christianity-compatible views, although capital punishment is debatable. Either way, capital punishment isn’t a matter of voting.
With regard to economics, labor issues and foreign policy, the American Solidarity Party is liberal, seeing the “moderate welfare state as the public expression of every citizen’s responsibility for his poor brother or sister.”
Ooh… you lost me.
It is not the State’s responsibility to care for your neighbor, it is your responsibility. The State might express compassion, and that’s great, but the State has its own issues. Also, if it is “distributist,” that probably means something like 90% taxes on the rich (who earned that money). It is up to the rich to be philanthropists, not big government.
How would a welfare state not get abused, especially in the US? Look at some of the examples of refugees in parts of welfare-stated Europe abusing their privileges! Even in the US, citizens sometimes choose to abuse government programs. It might be hard to find a balance between giving deserving, good people workfare (welfare under the condition that they work, are trained, or try to find work) and between giving random people welfare. See these two reputable sources:
“5 Government Programs That Abuse Taxpayers’ Money” (The Fiscal Times): thefiscaltimes.com/2015/02/12/5-Government-Programs-Abuse-Taxpayer-s-Money
“Yes America, Your Fellow Citizens DO Abuse Federal Aid Programs” (Forbes):forbes.com/sites/carrielukas/2012/10/02/yes-america-your-fellow-citizens-do-abuse-federal-aid-programs/#c7413fa3d2d3
Yet Americans shouldn’t make the mistake of ignoring how aid programs can be abused. Sadly, a not-insignificant portion of those receiving benefits do exploit assistance programs. This more than just wastes taxpayer dollars and leaves less for those who truly need it; perhaps most importantly, it enables a dependency that might be temporarily attractive, but limits someone’s life prospects and chances for long-term fulfillment.

As for foreign policy, we don’t need to get involved in everyone else’s business (Middle East wars, for example) without reasonable cause. If our ally was attacked, sure; if we were, most certainly! It’s not the communist era anymore. The Truman Doctrine is dead.
