We think it is insane to give power to people that cannot be trusted nor care about their citizens. In politics, trust and honesty is a joke, but why must we accept that? Why are we allowing corrupt politicians to control our lives? Does it have to be that power-hungry, untrustworthy politicians are our only option? We do not accept such behavior in every other aspect of our society, why do we accept it for government? We accept it because our only options have been to deal with corrupt parties who produce corrupt politicians. If you want to have integrity in your government, you need to have integrity in your political party. Our party is based on a “bottom up” form of governance, empowers Ethics and Accountability Committees at every level, and requires CONTRACTS to be signed by our leaders and our candidates to ensure that they will be true to their commitments.
