I believe that Whig philosophy is closer to the original intent of the Constitution and Federalist Papers than any other political party. I also want to belong to a party that has an ethic of honesty and integrity in politics.  I decided a long time ago that I could no longer vote for either of the two main parties, and concluded that this country needs a viable third party.

    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 Institute 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!

    Earlier this year the Modern Whig Party membership was absorbed by the Alliance Party, with the Modern Whig Institute continuing as an advocacy group.
