Claiming to have set out to create something unique and specifically suited to this moment in American political life — a moment in which the vast majority of Americans, from different walks of life, are deeply alienated from and distrustful of our government and its two party rule. Ross Perot’s 1992 campaign had thoroughly exposed this and the Patriot Party wanted to create a political instrument that was responsive. The Patriot Party is not a party based on any ideology — not conservative, not moderate, not liberal– but has a vision of including all Americans, regardless of ideology, in a new kind of party oriented toward political and fiscal reform and 10.
