What Is The Independent
American Party?

We are a rapidly growing consortium of like-minded Patriots

The Independent American Party is a rapidly growing consortium of like-minded Patriots that believe in and are willing to work for the retention of our limited form of government, to protect the rights of the individual from all forms of government and to protect the voice of our state in the federal government.

With nearly seventy thousand people registered to vote in Nevada under the IAP banner, we are the third largest functioning political organization in the state. Our active membership and county chapters work tirelessly throughout the year to remind our legislators, local reps and city and county officials that a government is created  by WE THE PEOPLE; and that they get their authority from us not the other way around.

Founded in 1967 by business owner and ex-GOP activist, Daniel M. Hansen and his family, the IAPs purpose was and is to challenge the entrenched political functionaries that have grown self-serving and have chosen to ignore the needs of the people they represent for service to a political organization and not their constituency.

The IAP gives the voters back the mechanism and opportunity that the political elites have circumvented for their own benefit by providing voters with a choice that doesn’t include the lesser of two evils. We, the IAP places principles above politics, and we stand firm in the traditions that led to the founding of this great nation and its accession on the world stage as a protector of individual liberty and limited representative government.


I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure it will cost us to maintain this declaration, and support and defend these states. Yet through all the gloom I see the rays of ravishing light and glory. I can see that the end is worth all the means. This is our day of deliverance.



Of the Independent Leadership

Declare Your Independence

Fight Back Against The Machine

We recognize that throughout human history most men have been slaves to man’s institutions of government; that through the wisdom of the Founding Fathers, in accordance with our Judeo-Christian traditions, threw off the shackles of tyranny.

Warren Markowitz

Clark County IAP President

We declare: That the proper role of government as defined by The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights is to protect the rights of Life, Liberty and Property, endowed to us by Divine Providence.
