"No more politics as usual" is a phrase often heard, but what does it really mean? We can all agree that the corrupt two-party system in America is not working, and leaves hundreds of millions of Americans out in the cold. If there's anything these past weeks and months have taught us, it is this: the time has come for a serious third party to organize and come to power to represent those of us who are freezing out here!
This is the moment, the opportunity of a lifetime, to form and build a viable Patriot Party!
We, the hardworking everyday People of America, demand change. Instead of elected officials who are little more than the puppets of corporations and the billionaire donor class who literally pay for lawmakers to custom-make laws for them, we want representatives who truly and actually REPRESENT US.
Representatives who will empower us- normal, average, every day American citizens.
Representatives who have the ability to work within the existing political framework, shape it to make our voices heard, advocate for us, and change the laws that oppress our personal and working lives every minute of every day!

No more wolves in sheep's clothing. We need to field the real deal- authentic, strong, smart people who come from the same economic backgrounds and communities that we do.
We cannot continue to rely on or support career politicians and their allies who are beholden to lobbyists and special interests, and whose true main goal is to line their own pockets and gain more power.
In other words, we need to keep our Patriot Party PURE! How do we do this? By recruiting candidates from our very own communities- even the smallest ones!
Starting from the ground up and at the local level: Who are the best and the brightest in YOUR family and community? Who do you TRUST? Of course, older people with life experience are critical in this (and all other) movements.
But as the history of political movements has proven, it is the young people who form the backbone and propel the momentum. They have the energy, idealism, determination, and room to grow into many years of Patriot Party public service. Plus, they will need years and decades to work their way up to the top levels of government.
You can encourage and mentor the young people you know in your community in political activism. Recruit them to work for the Patriot Party, preferably alongside yourself! There is plenty of work to do! (Please see the list towards the end of this article.)
We must field candidates for local, state, and even Federal offices in upcoming elections who will never give up their allegiance to the every day hard-working people they are entrusted to represent.
Remember this: once elected, our newcomer elected officials are thrust into a completely different world- the halls of government. Instead of campaigning and being surrounded by their community members and fellow Patriots and supporters, they are now the minority party representative, learning the ways of legislating and performing the duties of their office. Hearing from their constituents, but also lobbyists This is when the influence from fellow politicians from the two other parties begins.
It happens over and over: many an idealistic newcomer to elected office will, after a while, begin turning their gaze toward the potential rewards they could reap by forming alliances with those who promise more money and more power, whether fellow politicians of other parties, big business interests, or lobbyists. Our representatives must be held continually accountable, kept in line, and called out if and when they sell out!
That is why we cannot succumb to the temptation to take money from people or groups whose real underlying goal is to further the establishment RINO corporate agenda. We need to be on the lookout for this- every time a donor makes a donation to one of our Patriot Party organizations or candidates, check out who that donor is! What are their business interests? Who else do they donate to? Does anyone else in your Patriot Party network know anything about them? This cannot be emphasized enough. We learned this the hard way from being involved in local politics.
