The Federalist Party of America has no permanent leaders because it understands, as our nation’s founders warned us, that personalities and principles rarely coexist for long.

Federalist Party of America leaders at every level are therefore limited to one-year terms in their positions.

Policy Advisor:

Shane Hazel



Shane grew up in North Georgia, where he graduated from Brookwood H.S. In 1998. He worked full time at Home Depot to put himself through West Georgia University until late in the summer of 2001. Shane joined the United States Marine Corps days after 9/11, and while serving as point-man in Force Reconnaissance, he was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal with Valor for his actions in the Battle of Fallujah in November of 2004.

After leaving the Marine Corps, he finished his degree in International Affairs at the University of Georgia and has traveled the world ever since working in aerospace.

Shane founded Liberty Georgia in 2015 with a mission to educate Americans on the Constitution and its application to promote individual Liberty and division of power. In 2017, he felt called by his faith to expose his US Representative’s abysmal failed voting and spending record. As a political newcomer and spending only $70k, Shane’s highly motivated team of volunteers polled over 28% of the vote gaining national attention.

“The Oath I swore to uphold the Constitution means more now than it ever has. Democrats and establishment Republicans have usurped the constraints of the Constitution and arbitrarily grown their power at the expense of all Americans and their inalienable rights, turning a blind eye to the oath they swore to uphold the Constitution. It is with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, I pledge to you my life, my fortune, and my sacred Honor.”

Shane now lives happily in Cumming, Ga with the love of his life and their three children.
