Washington DC 2013 - 038 by Kyle Taylor, Dream It. Do It.
A new third U.S. political party now taking shape is offering the American public something that is truly new. Tentatively called the "New Congress Party," it is the only third party to focus on specific radical legislative changes the U.S. Congress must make to maximize democracy at home and foster peace and happiness abroad. Since many of the 24 changes demanded by the party must be implemented simultaneously, it is important to educate the public now about why they are needed and the values that inform them. The online sources referenced below can play a helpful role in that process.
