Is America Ready for a Third Party?

We started a new political party because we believe in big ideas. Our primary goal is to create solutions for America's problems. All things are possible if you begin with a thought and work diligently to bring dreams into reality.

A transcontinental mag-lev rail system may provide an answer to our transportation needs.  Our homestead renewal program may help resolve the problem that the sub-prime mortgage debacle has created.

Sex & Relationships
  • Ghosting, or cutting off all contact suddenly with a romantic partner, is not nice.
