Position Papers
Standing Tall for True Political Reform
Because unethical activities will find their way around all reform legislation, reform must be offered by the candidates themselves and then supported by a responsible and informed electorate.
Standing Tall for Responsible Citizenship
When we ask government to do something for us, please consider the cost of the request and then consider the total value.
Standing Tall for Reality
When it comes to politics, most people fall into one of three categories--sheep, lemmings and ostriches. Being more informed and active can change our world.
