We The People: National Coalition of Independents

Dear Friend,

Come and make history in Manchester by signing your own Declaration of Independence!

We The People, the same folks who brought you the second Boston Tea Party, The Boston TV Party, are calling a meeting to formalize a National Coalition of Independents.

The meeting will take place on March 17 — 18, 2001 in Manchester, NH whose airport features low cost SW Airlines flights.

Please call or fax the Peters immediately at tel./fax (603) 383-4285 if you would like to attend and we will provide you with additional details. We need to hear from you ASAP!

Remember what Benjamin Franklin said: "We must all hang together, or surely, we will all hang separately!" We all hung separately in the 2000 election; let's make sure we all hang together now and in the future, as a winning third alternative to our corrupt two party system.

Patriotically yours, Jeffrey and Cici Peters

P.S. Please find the first draft of the National Coalition of Independents for your review, comments, and any suggested changes.


National Coalition of Independents

We, the independents, declare our independence from big money and the "special" interests, and for the principle of direct democracy, as stated in the preamble to this Constitution: "We The People…do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

We hereby form this Coalition of Independents to work tirelessly for electoral reform and campaign finance reform. By electoral reform, we mean the direct democracy initiative, direct election of the President, uniform ballots, free ballot access, and instant runoff voting for all federal elections. By campaign finance reform, we mean voter financing and free television time for candidates.

Remembering Benjamin Franklin's prophetic words, "we must all hang together, or surely, we will all hang separately," we respectfully submit our signatures in support of our beloved country.

Signed by:
Independent Voters
Independent Candidates
Independent Citizen Movement Members
Independent Third Party Members
