Responsible. Open. Inclusive. We believe in a government that allows all Californians to achieve personal and economic success. Our policy will be defined by our growing membership.
The parties can spend unlimited amounts of money to support establishment-approved candidates that will further the national party's agenda.
We need candidates that will put California voters before party politics. We will use member communications to support common sense candidates willing to stand up to the leadership in both parties.
The major parties have rules that give their candidates and voters special access to the endorsement process and the ballot box.
Non-establishment candidates, and the voters who support them, are sidelined.
As part of our long-term strategy, we are setting out to be the first party ever to conduct a fully open primary for candidates and voters, as the California constitution requires.
Most voters have heard of campaign finance limits. But few people know all the ways political parties can get around contribution limits to give candidates who are loyal to the party a significant financial advantage.
We will flip the script on campaign finance laws by supporting candidates that want to reform our elections, not rig them.
According to the Public Policy Institute of California, 61% of Californians agree that the Republican and Democratic Parties do such a poor job of representing them that a third party is necessary.
Demographic change and Republican collapse have led to a Democratic super-majority in California. That means there is no viable check or balance in California’s government.
The result is a monopoly government that is accountable to party leadership, not the people.
Party politics aims to polarize and divide voters instead of addressing common sense solutions.
This growing divide has led to ineffective government and policy that doesn't represent the will of the voters.
