    I’m not sure I completely understand, but it seems that this is the source of our bloated fund raising for campaigns. It would seem that more money is spent waging a campaign for an office than will ever be earned by the eventual office holder. This seem counter productive.

    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!

    My remarks were flagged for not being civil. I don’t know why. Please tell me what was offensive. Thank you.

    It is time to eliminate the income tax. I propose that we adopt the “fair Tax” on spending. But because switching from one system to another would in fact cause double taxation (income then spending). To get out of this trap, I suggest that the income tax be continued for the very rich for a short period of time to provide the necessary funds to operate the government. This is unfair to the rich, but will allow us to escape within say 10 years from the tax on income. We should then eliminate the estate tax, hopefully, in time to save the family farm and other small businesses.

    Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.  (Theodore Roosevelt) 

    mwplogoblog.pngThank you for your interest in The Modern Whig Party of America! By joining one of the fastest-growing independent political parties in the country, you'll give us the opportunity to keep you informed not only of our party's activities,but also many of the key political issues and policy questions of the day. We think you'll quickly find us both a great platform for civic action and a valuable informational resource.

    After completing the signup form you'll be redirected to our Donate page. 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.
