Republicans and Democrats divide us

An American Union can unite us

The American Union is a union of swing voters, willing to ignore divisive partisan politics and put the focus back on our Constitutional duties to each other. When 3.5% of Americans unite for the 2024 election, our votes will decide the balance of power in Congress and the Oval Office’s occupant.

With this leverage over Washington, we’re crowdsourcing a legislative package of demands that will address root problems in our country. In exchange for our winning bloc of votes, Congress is expected to put our solutions on the President’s desk before the election. Read more about this innovative strategy in this blog post.

An American Union is cooperative democracy

Rational adults can disagree without fighting, and we can find solutions if we can agree on our goals. Luckily, the Framers left us a list of duties in the Constitution: Establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty, to ourselves and our posterity.

When we get back to basics, we can end poverty, end mass incarceration, and end the endless wars.
