The American Party was servicemarked by Roger E. Cowles, a member of American Mensa®, in 2009. The Great Recession made it abundantly clear that the Republican and Democratic parties were incapable of safeguarding and managing our economy.
We quickly realized that the two parties are the problem: they simply aren’t up to the job. Electing a new POTUS won’t put America back on the right track, because he or she must govern with two antiquated, flawed, outmoded and overly ideological parties that are lost in the 21st C. The obsolete nature of the two parties is seen everywhere: from the convoluted state primaries, to the failure to vet candidates, to the arcane U.S. Senate and House rules, to the near-total failure to inform citizens.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Our country is a work in progress, and we can change its direction. We can, once again, have an America that we will be proud to leave to our children and grandchildren. We’re building the American Party for you, your family and friends, and fellow citizens. No one else.
