We have two parties that can get people elected, but incapable of producing positive change, and a plethora more that cannot get people elected. In spite of that, a new political party was launched this pastweek.
This week, a new national political party was announced inWashington, DC. The Revive America National Committee, Inc. (“ReviveAmerica”) held its first national press conference to introduce the new party to the nation and to outline its mission, motivation, and future plans. “The most debilitating misconception in our quest for solutions is that there are two very distinctive, but extremely divergent, paths. The notion that there are not intelligent and clear solutions to most of our problems is categorically false,” founder and Chief Executive Mathews said at the announcement. “We have one goal: to find intelligent and sustainable solutions to rebuild the America we all know ispossible.”
ReviveAmerica is well into the process of gaining ballot access for the 2012 election. The group is on track to be certified on the ballot in 15 states by April 1st, 35 states by July 1st, and the rest of the states, excluding California, by August 1st. In addition to the presidential and vice-presidential nominations, the names of at least 12 federal candidates will appear on election ballots as the candidate of ReviveAmerica. The group will hold its national convention in Philadelphia on August23-26.
The latest USA TODAY/Gallup poll found that America is “more downbeat, more dissatisfied with its political leadership and more concerned about the country’s direction than at almost any other point in modern times.” The groups statement went on to say that “Americans have lost all confidence in the U.S. political system. ReviveAmerica promises to restore their faith and prove that our challenges can be solved. The group has the energy, endurance, and the wherewithal to offer Americans a sensible and sustainable alternative. The party platform is grounded in extensive research and common sense, and was purposely designed to remain fluid as the national conditions change or when a better way is discovered. ReviveAmerica is much like a modern-day Constitutional Convention, where committed members engage in thoughtful debate outside the context of misguided labels and politicalmaneuvering.”
Ms. Mathews, a former management consultant and graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School, continued, “Our current leaders underestimate the American public. They act as if we aren’t smart and capable adults – like we can’t comprehend the hard truths of our challenges or handle the hard choices that we must make to solve them. This is not only completely false; it’s insulting. Americans fully recognize that it is impossible to sustain freedom and liberty without sacrifice, and that, due to three decades of political incompetence and irresponsibility, the time has finally come to buckle down and get serious about protecting ourfuture.
“This country has tremendous resilience. Americans don’t reject national reflection; we embrace it. We don’t allow momentary lapses in judgment to derail us; we gain wisdom that makes us evenstronger.”
