I support passage of the American Anti-Corruption Act -- model legislation designed as a standard for action to blunt the corrupting effect of political contributions at the the local, state and federal level.
I believe lobbying and ethics laws must be reformed; political fundraising must be transparent and donors must be publicly disclosed; and a system of citizen-funded elections must be installed.
I endorse all efforts to reverse the Supreme Court's decisions in the Citizens United and McCutcheon cases, and pledge to do all I can as a citizen to return control of my government to the hands of The People.
The Modern Whig Party of America does not accept donations from corporations, unions, or special interest groups.
We are funded directly by volunteers and grassroots supporters. Please consider a small contribution today!
Adam Garfinkle commented on Volunteer 2016-05-17 09:04:09 -0400I've been a Whig temperamentally for a long time. My heroes in American history are Hamilton, Clay, Lincoln, and TR--especially Clay and TR. I used to be a Democrat, until 1991, and though I worked in a Republican administration, I have never been and never will be a registered Republican. I am an editor and writer, and I've written about stuff Whigs should know and care about--notably an ebook on American political dysfunction called Broken (2013). I've been lazy about it, but now I am signed up with the NWP, and I'm willing to put my shoulder to the wheel, for what it's worth.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. (Theodore Roosevelt)

While we rely primarily on the volunteer efforts of our members and leadership to achieve our goals, we do need some funds to accomplish some of the basic tasks every political party needs to do in order to compete. We hope you can make a small contribution -- the price of a cheeseburger at your local restaurant, or a takeout pizza on a Friday night -- to support our initiatives.
Once again, thank you, and we look forward to working with you to make our country, and our world, a better place -- for all of us.Sign up
