Our goal is to make our democracy better for all of us and for our future generations.
We hold these truths to be self-evident…
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,— That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
George Washington warned us of the tendency of political parties to promote discord between the citizens of our country. “The common and continual mischief’s [sic] of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and the duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it. It serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passion.”
We Americans know that the current level of divisiveness cannot be sustained without damaging our country further. This is made worse by wealthy special interests having far too much influence over our elected government officials. These problems have caused our “unalienable Rights” to be negatively affected. Just as in 1776, the solution to this problem must be initiated by us, the people of the United States. We are a group of private citizens who have become concerned about the direction our country has been taking. We are worried about the constant fighting between our political parties, about misinformation being spread by certain media factions and through social media, about unqualified people being elected to office, about profit above country and about the excessive influence being wielded by wealthy special interests. We are working on well-considered solutions to these problems as well as other pressing problems facing our beloved country. Join us as we work to make our country better so that our children’s rights and economic well-being are guaranteed, including “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”.
