    There are several important issues we could use to put forth common sense alternative proposals to the Republicans and Democrats.
    1. Solutions to gun violence. Democrats seemingly want to do away with the right to bear arms while the Republicans appear unwilling to consider any changes to the status quo.
    2. Healthcare. Democrats want to socialize medicine while Republicans have been unable to come up with a decent alternative to the ACA.
    3. Taxes. In spite of the recent tax “reform” passed by the Republican Congress, there is much work to be done. We may have received tax cuts, but it certainly falls short of “reform.” It increases the deficit dramatically and does nothing to rein in the IRS. A signature issue of the Whig Party could be to adopt and promote the FairTax movement. It could be a win-win for both organizations as FairTax would gain a national political force (we may be modest, but we are growing) and TMWP would have an issue to showcase our pragmatic, centrist, solutions-oriented political movement. The FairTax is all of the above.

    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!
