Motto: Freedom is Participation in Power*

* Said Cicero, A Senator in the Forum of the Roman Empire around 2000 years ago

No one can do it alone. It is up to you. So it is now, and always will be. Change is up to everyone. Together.

Increase your freedom through participation in nonpartisan IVA activities in the precinct and county where you vote. Your participation in nonpartisan politics can elect new political leaders. New leaders have the potential to get beyond the crippling bipartisanship so rampant today. We seek to dilute the bipartisan monopoly political power of Democrats (DNC) & Republicans (RNC) who control all local, state and national elections. The flood of special interest money into bipartisan politics has lowered trust in government. Most of our citizens are correctly convinced that corrupt career politicians do not represent them.

The Big Three Reforms (Your Voice) (Top of Page)

Can't Vote, Can't Contribute: New leaders elected without support from special interest money can help eliminate the appearance of wrongdoing by our leaders. Your Voice: Your highly selective vote for low budget highly qualified nonpartisan candidates, who accept campaign money only from eligible voters, will help elect leaders who have no financial conflicts of interest to interfere with the integrity of their civic leadership. Clean elections will help build public confidence in our political system. Clean government can help resolve our problems.

Incumbent Turnover: The election of candidates who are self-term-limited is equally important to freedom and liberty. Public office must be embraced as a temporary public duty. In a "republic" all citizens are recognized as co-equals, equal participants. Corruption of public servants can be avoided only by widespread sharing of public office. A good public servant is not entirely dependent upon the public payroll for a livelihood.

Limit Lobbyists, Information Only: Integrity in public office is made possible by the financial independence of the office holder. Public office should never be considered as a "job" or "career." The obligation to "public interest" must preclude any self-interest on the part of the office holder. "Job security" for incumbents is the enemy of good public service. Special interest and lobbyist money create the career incumbent power structure that corrupts our two-party political system. Power creates arrogance in public office. Power corrupts. "Self-interest" eventually becomes the central motivation for all career incumbents. Career self-interest, not the free flow of lobbyist information, is the source of corruption.


IVA Activity and Leadership (The Big Three) (Top of Page)

The IVA goal is to elect highly qualified nonpartisan independent and minor party candidates who will not accept any special interest money. Candidates we support with petitions and campaign participation will not have any strings attached to their offices and will be free to govern in the interests of all their human constituents, their entire electoral community. We are the 99%! We can occupy elections and win every public office running against career incumbent D's & R's.

You can participate to reach our goal of 100,000 IVA certified petition circulators in Ohio. You can run IVA precinct or community web pages on your personal home computer at no cost. Without you, nothing will happen. You could even stand for public office to serve your fellow citizens. If not you, who? If not now, when?
