"We desperately need to address the corruption caused by so much money in politics. This isn't a partisan issue. We won't see meaningful change in any other area until we fix this fundamental problem." - Buddy Roemer. I agree with that and support Buddy on Americans Elect.

America’s standing in the world has declined in the last decade. That decline could become irreversible if America continues to remain in a state of governing paralysis. At home our strength is also e...

We crashed the party at a polling place in New Hampshire on primary day, and ran into some of the candidates. More photos here: http://ow.ly/8sG0J

+Americans Elect don't these tactics -- i.e. Crash the Party -- dilute the organization's reputation and, therefore, effectiveness? I worry that the "great idea" behind the organization is getting lost somehow in the application of itself.

Ron Paul probably didn't answer because he knows that the LP and CP are already on the ballot, and yet the questioner is insulting his intelligence by asking if he supports "adding a third choice to the ballot." Last election, in 2008, Ron Paul endorsed Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party for president, and in 1988, Ron Paul himself ran for president as a Libertarian Party candidate, so he already knows that there are at least 4 choices on the ballot in enough states to theoretically win the presidency. To get a response out of Paul, AE should have asked him if he favors the inclusion of an Independent candidate, to be chosen via the internet, this election cycle. That would have indicated that (1) AE understands the existing options (2) AE understands the value they bring to the table (3) AE understands Paul's existing knowledge of 3rd party options. Pretending to be the only 3rd party option is insulting to Paul's intelligence. ...As is limiting the options available to D and R politicians. For that matter, is Chuck Baldwin on the AE list of candidates? That would have been a certain way to get a response out of Paul: By stating to him that AE was running an independent "transpartisan" or "nonpartisan" candidate, and asking him if he would once again endorse Chuck Baldwin or perhaps Jesse Ventura if he didn't get the GOP nomination. Also, the Paul camp is likely concerned that AE will run Bloomberg, whose anti-gun past would alienate their core demographic.

Story
Tagline
Americans Elect is the first nonpartisan presidential nomination.
Introduction
This election, we the people are nominating a third choice for president.

In the first ever national online primary, we’re choosing a leader that fights for us—not the parties and the special interests. And we’re putting the winner on the 2012 ballot, nationwide.

Sign up at www.AmericansElect.org and you'll join a growing movement of Americans who want to change politics as usual. Plus you'll have more power in our political system than you've ever had before. It takes 20 seconds, and you can still vote in your party's primary.

Americans Elect is a nonprofit that is not affiliated with any candidate or candidate committee.

Pick a president, not a party!
