Our Goals 


  • Ensure the social safety net: Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid. 
  • Ensure genuine individual freedom.

To that end, we support the following:

  • A society in which we feel politically and economically responsible for the fairness of our laws and the sharing of responsibility.
  • The ability to choose our partners on a universally equal basis. 
  • The ability to exercise reproductive rights .
  • The ability to organize as groups see fit, the freedom to join unions and bargain collectively.
  • The ability to vote without artificial and prejudicial restrictions or interference. 

Who we are 

We are a community of like-minded individuals who represent the values that benefit people at all levels of society for the prosperity of all.  We seek transparent, participatory government that responsibly manages national, state, and municipal resources of land, personnel, regulation, operations and taxation to the benefit of the common good.Interested in joining us?
