We The People
We The People: The American People's Party

The Plan consists of establishing the Party of We The People, The American People's Party in all 50 states, by complying with the rules set forth by each Secretary of State. The purpose of the Party would be to take exemplary action at the local and state level, and to choose an exemplary Presidential leader at the national level.

Exemplary action needs to come before elective office, and continue thereafter, because exemplary action and inclusiveness can be the features that differentiate our Party from the rest.

Ideally, the Party would be established in all 50 states by 2006, and field its own winning Presidential candidate in the Presidential election of the year 2008; in the worst case scenario, the Party would be established in all 50 States by 2008, and have its exemplary leader win the Presidential election in the year 2012.

To get started in each State, one individual, will register the Party with the Secretary of State. Each state could have periodic conventions where the people would decide what exemplary action they would like to undertake at the community and/or state level, and later, the people could participate in a national convention to choose a Presidential candidate.

These conventions would be open to all the people, and voting would be on a one person/one vote basis. To insure that the rights of minorities are respected and unity prevails, no policy nor candidate would be approved unless it received a super-majority approval vote of 60% or more.

In 1856, the Democrats and the Whigs were the "Two Party System." The first State Convention of the Republican Party, the new third party, was held on May 29, 1856, in Bloomington, Illinois, where Abraham Lincoln was the keynote speaker.

In that same year of 1856, the first National Convention of the Republican Party took place in Pittsburgh when delegates from 24 states attended - and four years later their nominee, Abraham Lincoln, was elected President. Abraham Lincoln's Third Party then went on to replace The Whigs in our "Two Party System."

Let us remember that miracles can and do happen -
witness the end of U.S. slavery,
the election of the first Catholic President,
the fall of the Berlin Wall,
the end of apartheid in South Africa,
and the election of third party candidate Abraham Lincoln in 1860!

Undoubtedly, as We The People becomes a strong Third Party, some will slander us with false accusations. Still others will join us - and be welcomed with open arms.

To those that slander We the People, let them remember what Abraham Lincoln said in his "Cooper Union Address" of 1860: "Neither let us be slandered from our duty by false accusations against us, nor frightened from it by menaces of destruction...Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith let us dare to do our duty as we understand it."6

Implementation and Budget

For this Plan to work, we need people, time, and money. Initially, we need a few people with quite a bit of time. Ultimately, we need a lot of people and a lot of money. The first step would be to get We The People legally formed in the key state of New Hampshire, which has already been accomplished under The People's Party, a not-for-profit entity. The second stage would be to spread to all fifty states in the U.S. at the local and state levels, as soon as possible. The final stage would be to go national, and elect an exemplary leader President of the United States in the year 2008, or, if there is an unforeseen delay, in the year 2012.
