FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

DOES NEW UNITY HAVE AN AGENDA THAT IS EITHER PRO-LIBERAL OR PRO-CONSERVATIVE ?

We are non-partisan. Our only agenda is to:

  •  improve U.S. democracy
  • promote direct participation
  • give voice to independent voters and points of view


ARE YOU FUNDED BY BIG CORPORATIONS OR SPECIAL INTERESTS?

No, we receive no funds from corporations or special interests.  We are careful to avoid potential conflicts of interest. We seek to raise funds from individuals and foundations that have no partisan agenda.


I LIKE WHAT NEW UNITY IS DOING - BUT I'M ONLY ONE PERSON - HOW CAN I MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

Change happens one person at a time. Every person is critical - especial in early stages like we are now.  Volunteer for a few hours a week or donate $10 and you will make a big difference.


DOES NEW UNITY SUPPORT TRUMP?

New Unity is non-partisan. We do not favor or oppose any candidate for President.  In fact, by elevating independent views and building institutions for direct democracy, we mitigate the potential of any one party or president to force their agenda on the people.


WHY DO YOU OFFER LUCKY NUMBERS FOR LOTTERY? HOW IS THAT CONSISTENT WITH YOUR MISSION?

New Unity does not want to take $$ from corporations or special interests. We found a way to raise funding from average people by adding value in a unique way.  In fact, states raise money from lotteries to fund education and other important social goods.  So we think we are benefiting communities as we generate funding for New Unity.


THE WHOLE GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE REVAMPED.  YOUR INITIATIVE WILL NOT CREATE THE DRAMATIC CHANGE THAT IS NEEDED?

The U.S. was founded by visionary leaders who pointed the country in the right direction.  "Government by the People" was a radical idea in 1776.  Nearly 250 years later, our systems needs some improvement but the fundamental basis of this republic is still strong.  We can improve it using advanced technology and mathematical concepts that did not exist in 1776.  Also, political parties are extra-constitutional organizations that have evolved to a duopoly that dampens, and in some cases impairs, open debate which is essential for democracy to thrive.
