Are you a resident of New Hampshire? Go here.
There is no greater challenge and no greater opportunity for fixing the problem of a system of corruption than the presidential election cycle. Every four years, the media swarms around candidates and puts a spotlight on this country's most pressing political problems — but time and again, the problem of corruption gets left in the shadows. This time, we can't let that happen.
It all starts in New Hampshire.
The New Hampshire Rebellion (NHR) is a movement of citizens who are committed to making sure every presidential hopeful answers one critical question: How are you going to end the system of corruption in Washington? In part inspired by the 88-year old New Hampshire resident, Granny D, who fifteen years ago marched for campaign finance reform; in part a response to the opportunity presented by New Hampshire holding the first presidential primary: the NHR recognizes that New Hampshire is poised to be the tip of the spear in 2016 for the growing effort to end corruption in Washington.
On January 11, citizens including Rootstrikers' founder Lawrence Lessig will march from Dixville Notch (the place the New Hampshire primary begins) to Nashua. Along the way, we will recruit as many New Hampshirites as possible to the battle against the system of corruption, and you can help by adding your name to this petition:
CITIZENS OF NEW HAMPSHIRE: We, citizens of the United States, respectfully ask the people of New Hampshire to use your extraordinary power to maximal effect — by forcing every presidential candidate to answer one critical question: How are you going to end the system of corruption in Washington?
The problem of a system of corruption has persisted for far too long. Together, we can finish what Granny D started, and make sure that anyone hoping to lead this country in 2016 is ready to lead it to reform. Please add your name to the right to support the rebellion.
