The first key value

The first of the Ten Key Values of the Green Party of the United States is Grassroots Democracy:
Every human being deserves a say in the decisions that affect their lives and not be subject to the will of another. Therefore, we will work to increase public participation at every level of government and to ensure that our public representatives are fully accountable to the people who elect them. We will also work to create new types of political organizations which expand the process of participatory democracy by directly including citizens in the decision-making process.
Alaskans for Clean Elections is doing something about corruption in Alaska politics with its Clean Elections initiative. Money, as has become apparent, can have a corrosive effect on the moral fiber of our representatives.

Go check out this initiative, and add your name to the list of supporters!
