People Making Policy
The Independent Party of Delaware exists to provide the People of Delaware a practical public interest alternative to closed-loop
special interest-driven politics as usual in the First State. That is why we provide free ballot access, in contrast to the high filing fees, charged by the "major" parties.
It simply is not cast in stone that the same two parties should perpetuate themselves in power at public expense. George Washington was not elected President on a political party ticket. The Democratic and Republican parties had nothing to do with the drafting of the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation and the US Constitution – in fact, they did not even exist at the time of the American Revolution.
This brings us to the question of “What is a political party?”. A political party is a group people, dedicated to elect candidates, according to a given political philosophy. As the two parties steadily lose the public trust, they will increasingly lose public support in the 21st Century.
The first two parties in the United States were known as Federalists (Hamiltonians) closely followed by the Democratic-Republicans (Jeffersonians) -- not to be confused with the Democratic and Republican parties of today. The former dissolved in 1824 and the latter ceased to exist in 1834. The Whig Party formed in 1833 and ended in 1854. Accordingly, the Democratic Party of 1824 and Republican Party of 1854 are 19th Century constructs and are rapidly losing their relevance, as increasing numbers of voters are simply fed up with their dysfunctional bipolar partisan politics and politicians in general. Fortunately, there is a solution to the problem.
Rather than demanding adherence to preconceived and distorted ideologies like the ruling parties, the IPoD provides a platform of problem-solving methodology, designed to inspire people to think creatively in search of solutions to our common problems. What has your politician done for you, lately?
In an era of government corruption, incompetence, duplicity and abuse of power, how long can we endure? WE deserve a better future. The Independent Party of Delaware clearly stands for Freedom and Constitutional Liberty in the face of impending tyranny.
Fortunately, we don’t have to take it anymore. In fact, greatest power that voters have is the Power of Withdrawal. When political parties no longer serve the People, they are relegated to the ash heap of history. If the two parties no longer represent your views and interests, then why bother to remain registered with them? People have the right and the power to form and join new parties more representative of their interests. That is why the Independent Party of Delaware was formed and that is why it continues to grow, shifting power to the People.
Ultimately, the choice is yours: Continue with electing the same people from the same old parties and get the same old results or Declare Your Independence from politics as usual, elect new independent people and get creative, constructive and effective results from a new post-political party, dedicated to the greater public interest of all Delawareans.
