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!

    The one thing I disagree with about the Anti-Corruption Act is citizen funding. Citizen funding puts the money under control of politicians and I’m adamantly against that for obvious reasons.


    I’m toying with the idea that no organizations may contribute to campaigns, only individuals because only individuals can vote. Maybe we could put some limit on individual contributions so billionaires like George Soros or the Koch brothers can’t buy elections or thwart the will of the people, but I would make it a high limit compared to today’s limits.

    our system is sick, this is the first step to recovery. Without this, the health of the nation will continue to slowly deteriorate.
