    A: Corruption will always exist and will be concentrated in centers of power but that does not mean we, as a voting public, should stand idly by as politicians shape legislation in their own self interest. Compensation should be tied to legislation; efficacy should be measured by fiscal achievements; and platforms should be debated in public forums.

    A: Capitalism has been, and will continue to be, the cornerstone of the Great American Experiment. We should use government regulation, not to squelch innovation, but to guide corporations toward more civically minded, environmentally friendly, and socially responsible outcomes.

    A: I believe that education is the key to our competitiveness and success as a nation in an increasingly global society. We should reward innovation in education, we should match the speed of adoption with it’s development, and we should encourage businesses to take ownership in the education of their communities.

    A: Job one of a democratic republic – this great experiment that we are all participating one – is representation. Gerrymandering by both major parties has twisted this principal beyond the pale. The domino effect of gerrymandering effects everything, from how the census is performed and accommodated, Federal funds distribution, lawmaking, supreme court nominations… I can go on and on and on.

    As modern whigs already pledge, gerrymandering must be stopped across every city, county, and state in our union.

    There are numerous objective solutions. First and foremost, no one with any political interests should be allowed to participate in the districting process in any way. That’s a no-brainer.

    From there, there are numerous paths to take. What about objective groups formed for each districting event similar to jury duty, requiring sampled, registered voters from the actual district to perform the districting under the instruction and direction of educational scholars from the community? That would be one idea and methodology to explore. We the people adjudicate crime, up to crimes that carry capital punishment in many of our states. I think we’re smart enough to be mentored in reviewing data and objectively determine representational districts.

    While everyone is human and has their own leanings, this method would at least assure no involvement of financial and professional political interests.

    Just one thought – I’m sure there’s plenty of holes to poke at it to improve it! :)

    A: The power of American industry and innovation can be leveraged to be a leader in the future of power generation/distribution WHILE ensuring there is a planet that can sustain life for future generations. For the economic-minded, this is a win-win. For those that care about future generations, this is a win-win. For anyone with common sense, this is a win-win. Yet… gosh, facts have become “passe” and challenged based on what untrained people “feel”. It’s insanity.

    I for one don’t want to continue the mistakes of previous generations and ignore the incredibly massive problem facing the PLANET that is not only staring us in the face, but costing thousands of lives and billions of dollars – literally as I type this paragraph. Tomorrow, it will cost millions of lives. Continued escalation can only result in wars and other battles for survival for future generations, a though that makes me shudder.

    This is common sense stuff. If 97% of the doctors IN THE WORLD say you are dying of cancer, and 3% say the evidence that shows you are dying can be misconstrued based on politics (unrelated to science), economic interests (unrelated to science), or just plain bunk doctors – who do YOU listen to? What action do you take?

    I know I would fight the cancer and to live, zero question. Anyone else that says they wouldn’t are either suicidal, lying, or manically depressed (at best). I don’t listen to the ones who simply tell me what I want to hear, which leads to the path of least resistance.

    Modern whigs are centrists that seek the win-win objective solutions. From every logical perspective, everyone can win on this one! Physically, morally, economically – strong leaders are needed to show the way. Heck, even China (leveraging a national strength of the cultural long view) is investing heavily in future environmentally-friendly technology.

    As we talk about saving coal. Ridiculous. Here’s a thought – let’s retrain those hard-working miners in modern energy development solutions. Let’s invest in existing coal, oil, and other industries to shift them to innovative forms of energy generation and distribution. No jobs lost – no industries collapsed. But rather transformed to the betterment of ALL, company, employee, and planet alike!

    End soap box. ;-)

    A: America needs a political party that represents classical liberalism—business-friendly, public-spirited, and freedom-loving. The Republican and Democratic parties represent both the right and the left. The Modern Whig Party can be that classical liberal party, promoting American industry, thrift, and domestic happiness.

    A: Today, the United States has no real foreign policy, except for regime change and sabre-rattling. President Trump does not seem to be on the same page as Secretary of State Tillerson. Of course, Trump did not create this situation—American foreign policy has been in decline for years, beginning with Bill Clinton. I am starting to miss Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger.

    A: Global warming is a severe problem, but the parties that support it are very liberal, promote populism and don’t seem to care about creating new businesses and new jobs for Americans. The Republicans are acively promoting more fossil fuel use; so, as far as I am concerned, they want to destroy the world.

    A: At every level of elections in the United States, citizens are forced to choose between one of two parties who in almost every case, dont accurately represent their political views accuractely. My ideal reform of this error would be MMP voting on the national level, however that is only the ideal. The biggest immediate change i would make would be implementing Alternative/Instant Run-off Voting.
