Mission & Values
Built for the love of our country and the oath we swore.
A healthy and truly representative American democracy, facilitated by competitive elections, where all citizens are both incentivized and excited to participate.
To build and mobilize a community of military veterans to advocate for election innovations that unlock competition, make our politics less toxic and our government more effective.
Our Core Values
We choose to operate above the partisan fray.
Our current political environment, too often, is toxic and focused on extreme partisan rhetoric. We simply do not engage in this behavior.
We do not demonize, dehumanize or disown anyone because of their political (or any other) beliefs.
We operate with urgency to enact specific election innovations.
We are laser-focused on the three innovations we champion: open primaries, voting innovations and Final-Five Voting.
We act with urgency because our mission is critical and we say no to everything else.
We role model intellectual honesty in pursuing structural and incentive-changing solutions, grounded in research and historical context.
There are no silver bullets or political saviors to quickly fix our dysfunctional, toxic political system.
Implementing our targeted election innovations will take time, wisdom and true cross-partisan coalition building.
We play the long game and know we will be friends when our work is done.
Banding together, from across the country and across the political spectrum, to “do our duty as we understand it.”
Having fun while working hard to implement powerful systematic innovations that fundamentally change the incentives in our anti-competitive two-party “duopoly.”
All while pursuing with the ambitious goal of saving American democracy from the two-party doomloop: partisan extremism, gridlock and dangerous division.
