Direct Democracy is the solution. It gives a voice to the average people without the ideology filters of the two political parties.
We intend to accomplish this by adding a new chamber to Congress called the Citizens Unity Assembly. The Assembly is to be composed of 600 citizens who are at least 18 years old and meet other reasonable qualifications. Citizen Delegates are selected directly from the general population by a statistical process so that it reflects the general population to a 99% confidence level with about a 5% margin of error. You can find details in the Assembly tab of this website.
The Assemble's legitimacy is derived from the fact that it is composed of regular citizens in a manner to reflect American voters.
Until the Assembly is formally adopted by a constitutional amendment, it will be an informal body that will influence government due to the fact it will be the organization that most closely representing the will of the people. As such, it can mitigate the extremists of both of the two major political parties and be a catalyst to unify America.
Consider it your patriotic duty to help us fix this broken system by joining. And you can make a difference by contribution or volunteering.
As patriotic Americans, we are taking action to repair and strengthen our democracy – before it’s too late. We are starting New Unity.org to push forward an agenda that is independent of the parties and resonates with the majority of people. We will not be swayed by special interests. NewUnity.org policies incorporate the best of policies of the two parties. We will published them at NewUnity.org. We call it “unity” because we intend to unify America. This is truly a grass roots movement. There is no major organization or billionaire behind it. Volunteers in all states are needed. We will seek volunteers and donations from individuals and organizations that are disturbed by the political extremism, love our country and want to be a part of fixing it.
