​​The time is right to form a new political party.  The political system in this country is based on a two party system.  Third parties come and go and do not last.  We hope to start a new party that will last and that will change the course of American politics forever by turning our country into a multiparty system.

***​CURRENT ISSUES***


GUN VIOLENCE


VOTING RIGHTS ISSUES


FIXED TERMS FOR ALL ELECTED FEDERAL OFFICE HOLDERS INCLUDING FEDERAL JUDGES AND SUPREME COURT JUSTICES

****************************************************************************************

As to gun violence-

All automatic and semiautomatic weapons should be banned.  The right to bear arms is not to be treated any differently than the right to free speech.  Just as you cannot yell fire in a movie theater, constitutional rights set forth in the Bill of Rights can be limited and restricted based on the safety and well being of all citizens.  It is hard to imagine that the founders of this country envisioned that there would be firearms capable of mass destruction in the hands of citizens.  Let's return to the days of the muzzle loaders that were in use at the time of the adoption of the 2nd Amendment.  Background checks are not the answer to gun violence.   The answer lies in the limitations that can be placed on the possession and use of weapons of mass destruction.


As to voting rights issues-

Laws restricting or limiting access to voting, such as laws making it illegal to provide food or water to someone in line waiting to vote, are repugnant to a civilized society.  Laws aimed at limiting voting by mail are an attack against democracy.  We should be trying to make it easier for people to vote, not harder.   


As to fixed terms of office-

President and Vice President of the United States-one six term term of office.  No campaigning, speeches or attendance at gatherings, for or against any person running for office during the six year term.   

United States Senators-one eight year term of office. No campaigning, speeches or attendance at gatherings, for or against any person running for office during the eight year term. May run one time for reelection eight years after leaving office

House of Representatives-one six year term of office.  No campaigning, speeches or attendance at gatherings, for or against any person running for office during the six year term.  May run one time for reelection six years after leaving office

Federal Judges-one and only one 12 year term of office. 

Judges on the Federal Courts of Appeal-one and only one 15 year term of office.

Supreme Court Justices-one and only one 20 year term of office.
