How will the party afford to operate without the plutocratic funding? Therein lies the problem.

If we get 1/3 of the population to join and they all contribute $10 per year we will have about the same amount of money as is spent on successful campaigns each election cycle.

There are more of us than there are of them so it doesn’t take much from each one of us to equal what they have.

Oh ya and it only takes about 10% of the house and senate to be a real pain in the neck politically.

So where dio we find our own honest Huey Long and how do we keep him alive?

BTW - the anti-plutocrat party should be called THE POPULIST PARTY.

The first plank in the platform is ending all monopolies and providing a Free Market for ALL.

Well if we are going to out spend the plutocracy on politicians then we need to get 1/3 of the people to join and to contribute $10 per year. Ya we need to be buying our own politicians. Turn about is fare play and if they don’t vote for what is best for the nation we will vote them out. I’ve had enough of one group putting the other down and getting ahead at the other’s expense.

“So where dio we find our own honest Huey Long and how do we keep him alive?” We don’t need to find an honest politician we just need to run an honest party with out the graft and corruption that is the body politic now.

Economic reform is good but I want full employment now as the first plank in the party.

We need public financing for federal elections. The citizens united case put our government up for sale to the highest bidders.
