The party's first platform was based on Benson's beliefs. These 15 principles for the proper role of government, taken from his speech, are held as the IAP's foundational principles. The IAP of Nevada has elected several candidates to local office, such as District Attorney, County Commissioner, County Clerk, and other local offices. (Officers elected in other States on the Independent American Party ticket or the U.S. Constitution Party need to be added here by party members in other states.) The Independent American Party of Nevada was founded in 1968 was on the ballot for twenty years, and then regained ballot position in 1992. In 2002, the Nevada party fielded 54 candidates for office statewide, which sent some shock waves through the establishment parties in Nevada. After the Independent American Party of Nevada affiliated with the U.S. Constitution Party, many of the other Independent American Parties in other states attempted to form a national party, whose history is traced below.
