Gov Christine Todd Whitman and The Forward Party: Let Every Voice Be Heard
Let Every Voice Be Heard
So their primary goals are the reduction of partisan polarization and implementation of electoral reforms.
But here's the thing . . . they didn't just complain about how things were, they took action and today they are the third largest "party" in terms of numbers in the US. That alone is a testament to the power of their message with a lot of Americans who are feeling disenfranchised by the political system but determined not to allow that to come between them and their civic responsibility and their patriotic beliefs.
Interestingly enough, the net result of this has been to create a true big-tent political party where people of goodwill can join together and work for change.
