    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!

    Loved all of the thoughtful and helpful responses I received on this board and via email. I’m a Whig! Independent minded, pragmatic, approach every issue on the merits is what I’m getting. I don’t have to agree with every Whig on every single issue. I just want problems to be solved. The points below on foreign policy align with mine but even if they didn’t,, I’d feel a lot better with intellectually honest leaders with discernment.

    What can be done to advance the Whig agenda? I can make a modest donation. Is there a particular candidate with a realistic shot? Just to the website? Are there Whigs in Spokane, WA?
