Good government is not only possible, it is highly desirable.  To many disillusioned Americans today, the idea that the government can serve the people seems like a utopian fantasy.

It will not be easy to make good government a reality.  It will take the active support of tens of millions of voters.  It will take a broad coalition of political activists, including both progressives and conservatives, willing to agree to disagree on many issues, but to work together enthusiastically and joyfully to replace corporatists with populists in Congress, in state legislatures, and in local governments.

We began as a small group, but as more and more concerned citizens join forces, we are becoming a larger and larger group.  We hope you will join us in our joyful effort to revive and revitalize genuine democracy and to reestablish a government of, by, and for the people.  With your active involvement we will make history in November of 2018.
