Fed up with the candidates the Democrats and Republicans are putting forward for POTUS? Not willing to throw your vote away on Libertarian or Green Party whack-jobs? There might be hope for you yet:
AMERICANS ELECT is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that is not affiliated with any political party, ideology or candidate. It is funded exclusively by individual contributions—and not from corporate, labor, special interest, foreign, or lobbyist sources. And we intend to repay our initial financing so that no single individual will have contributed more than $10K.
Ultimately, Americans Elect is the first nominating process that will be led directly by voters like YOU…
THE GOAL OF AMERICANS ELECT is to nominate a presidential ticket that answers directly to voters—not the political system.
American voters are tired of politics as usual. They want leaders that will put their country before their party, and American interests before special interests. Leaders who will work together to develop fresh solutions to the serious challenges facing our country. We believe a secure, online nominating process will prove that America is ready for a competitive, nonpartisan ticket.
Sounds a lot like GOOOH (Get Out of Our House), an effort to nominate grass-roots candidates for the House of Representatives in every district. Actually has a few viable candidates (one is running against Lamar Smith in the primaries).
Thanks for the tip. Ill definitely check it out.
