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!

I understand what your saying and agree with a lot of it. However, I don’t know if we should entirely disassociate ourselves with President Elect Trump for a few reasons. 1) He does have a large following of supporters and if we distance ourselves from him entirely, it would almost be as if though we are distancing ourselves from his supporters. Instead, there are certainly things he has said that we must distance ourselves from because we do not support some of those negative statements. 2) He has not yet taken office and we do not know exactly how he will be as a President, what his ACTUAL policies will be and if what he actually does in office agree with our policies or not. 3) As a centrist party that strives to have a pragmatic approach, dialogue is needed to express why or why we do not support some things President Elect and his administration attempt. The Whig Party of old became the Republican Party yet we are not that party and in order to stay true to our roots, I agree with you that we still need to current founders as well as the forefathers that cooperated to create this great nation. We cannot accept the negative aspects of his Presidential campaign, statements he has made or if those become his actual policy because we are a Party that accepts all members of our society. This is certainly an opportunity for us to show the country who we are and why it is so important for them to learn more about us.
