Whether a candidate is running for City Council, Mayor, State Legislature, Governor, Congress or President there are some traits or qualifications we look for as a society. As Whigs, what are the traits that you look for in a candidate for any of these offices?Take the survey

James Hazen commented on Getting the word out, and joining the conversation 2016-07-21 03:11:43 -0400I’ve actually been thinking that getting people writing and sharing their thoughts is exactly what we need for some publicity. When I first learned about this party a few weeks ago, I was very excited about the idea and eager to read more about it. I became a little discouraged after googling around and not finding very much written recently about the Whig party.
I think it would be a great idea to get Whigs from across the nation writing about political philosophy and national issues from a Whig perspective. I’m almost thinking something along the lines of “member opinion pieces,” perhaps with some minor vetting to make sure they fall in line with core Whig values. Articles that explain a bit about the Whig party or why one has chosen to become a Whig are good, but I think even better would be opinion pieces on specific issues and government policy, the sort of thing that can possibly get published in local or national newspapers or periodicals. I think that would be a very effective means of showing what Whigs are and getting our name out there in the mainstream consciousness.
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.

Thank you for your interest in The Modern Whig Institute! By joining our organization as a grassroots member you'll give us the opportunity to keep you informed not only of our 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 an invaluable informational resource.
After completing the signup form you'll be redirected to our Donate page. We rely on the contributions of our fellow citizens to fund our activities, including maintaining our website, paying for necessary research tools and access to required data, and compensating the skilled professionals who make everything go. 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.Sign up
