Our America Initiative’s latest project is directed to stopping the duopoly.
This terminology requires no translation to people involved in alternative party politics, but it refers to the exceptional dominance of the Democratic and Republican parties in this nation’s political landscape.
If you encounter abusive, biased or obstructionist actions to shut out candidates of alternative parties, such as the Libertarian party, register a complaint here. To support this effort, one can contribute here, or promote the Stop The Duopoly Money Bomb.
