Nathan Combes commented on Should the Modern Whig Party Endorse Garry Johnson for President? 2016-08-03 12:42:14 -0400Rather than endorse Gary Johnson, I believe that the party should actively promote Johnson being included in the debates. This would signal the MWP promoting reasoned debate, the inclusion of different perspectives, and a break from a binary voting choice moreso than a particular candidate.
I support passage of the American Anti-Corruption Act -- model legislation designed as a standard for action to blunt the corrupting effect of political contributions at the the local, state and federal level.
I believe lobbying and ethics laws must be reformed; political fundraising must be transparent and donors must be publicly disclosed; and a system of citizen-funded elections must be installed.
I endorse all efforts to reverse the Supreme Court's decisions in the Citizens United and McCutcheon cases, and pledge to do all I can as a citizen to return control of my government to the hands of The People.
The Modern Whig Institute does not accept donations from corporations, unions, or special interest groups.
