Money equals power in Washington

Major donors, lobbyists, PACs and Super PACs all have direct access to legislators and routinely influence public policy for their own benefit. With little opposition, lobbyists provide their clients with outsized benefits compared to their cost. The American people must organize and take action to oppose them or we will continue to be marginalized and divided.  We must join together in large numbers across party lines, reach consensus on the issues that we care most about and apply our collective resources to advocate for them.

We seek to empower millions of highly engaged voters from the left, middle, and right of the political spectrum. From every state and all walks of life. With the combined resources to shift the balance of power away from large corporations and their Washington lobbyists. We are developing a software platform to ascertain the areas of agreement among our diverse Members and will use their monthly dues to advocate for their collective interest. We are the country’s first and only common interest group.

Don’t get mad, get organized

How will it work?

ANY MEMBER CAN SUBMIT A PROPOSITION

Proposition enters a 30-day review and comment period where it receives feedback from other Members. It must demonstrate that it is supported by our three Member blocs (conservative, moderate, liberal) before it can advance to a formal vote. This process ensures that every Proposition has the support of all blocs regardless of the number of Members in each, thereby protecting whichever might have the fewest Members at any given point in time.

ALL MEMBERS VOTE ON PROPOSITION

Every Proposition must then receive support from a supermajority of all Members to be included in our Platform. We only spend Member resources advocating for the issues supported by a supermajority of our Members. We’ll rate those running for office on their degree of support for our Platform and when we are large enough, provide campaign support for those who adopt our Platform regardless of their political party.

We'll advocate for the Issues...

...that have the support of each of our liberal, moderate, and conservative Member groups
...and have the support of a supermajority of all of our Members

Domestic and Foreign Policy

What is the common ground between gun owners and gun safety advocates? Do our current military actions overseas keep us safe from domestic terrorism, and is the cost and loss justified? Should people who came to this country illegally be allowed to stay?  How should we decide who can immigrate here, and should it be based on country of origin, educational levels or skills, or other factors?

Health care, wellness, and pharmaceuticals

How do we lower health care costs and drug prices without sacrificing our quality of care? Can we create a more compassionate health care system that respects individual preferences? What are the forces that oppose populist change in the healthcare market? How do we move to more transparency in pricing and outcomes? How can we make health care more accessible and affordable? Are we addressing the causes of the increase in opioid and substance use problems?

Sustainability and the environment

How can we balance the need for environmental stewardship and business profitability? Can public policy accelerate the development and use of environmentally sustainable practices and products without increasing consumer costs? How can we improve the quality of our air and the safety of our food and water sources without skyrocketing societal costs?

Privacy, technology, education, and the Internet

Who owns your personal data, and what rights should you have over it? How do we improve our educational system for all Americans? Do we need more trade schools and career options for our youth?  

Taxation, Finance, and Banking

How important is a balanced federal budget? Should we allow major corporations to pay large fines in lieu of prison sentences for their misdeeds? Should there be a cap on the amount of executive compensation that a company can deduct on its tax return? Should government insured banks be allowed to put taxpayers at risk again? Should we reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act to keep commercial and investment banking separate? What is the role of government when a company goes bankrupt?
