The Party is built on a foundation of simple yet sound core values. http://moreperfectunionparty.blogspot.com

1) Job Creation 2) Competition and Choice in Politics 3) Platform Determined by Voter Survey of Issues 4) Rigorous Debate of All Issues

1) Job Creation It is a universal belief that every citizen should have an opportunity to find work. The percentage of Americans mentioning economic issues as the Nation's most important problem is well over 50 percent. Putting people back to work is an issue that Americans care deeply about. Creating a healthy economy transcends political parties. The More Perfect Union Party's primary mandate is to create an environment that will produce more American jobs.

2) Competition and Choice in Politics Political choice has been stymied for too long. Any and all options that inject competition and choice within politics will be explored and implemented. One example is to change primaries to be open to voters of any affiliation and to have more than one politician per party running on the primary ballot.

3) Platform Determined by Voter Survey of Issues A Political Survey will be adminstered in each of five geographic regions every two years. The results of the survey will serve as the platform for politicians representing their respective region. Differing views are not only tolerated but expected to occur within the More Perfect Union Party. Constituents from the North East region can and will have differing views than the constituents from the West Coast region. Politicians elected from the More Perfect Union Party will cast their vote in Congress based on empirical evidence gathered from their constituents' views.

4) Rigorous Debate of All Issues Formal debates are a way for voters to hear both sides of any political issue. Debating is an excellent way to bring facts and logic to bear on the pros and cons of any issue. Debates can take place either online or in person. Voters are able to make better informed decisions based on the outcome of the debate resolution.
