Bust of James Madison
"A popular government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a FARCE or a TRAGEDY; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own governors, must arm themselves with the power which KNOWLEDGE gives." —James Madison
Political campaigns are the
WE THE PEOPLE must acquire
or America will be the

Our Commitment

To promote:

ACT is committed to questioning our leaders and publishing their unedited (by us) responses. All original and follow-up questions will be objective, non-partisan, non-leading, and philosophically-focused.

The featured questions (right) are examples of ACT's commitment. nowweACT.com went live September 21st, sending questions to the following poiticians: President Barack Obama, Governor Mitt Romney, Congressman Paul Ryan, Senator John Kerry, Senator Mitch McConnell, Senator Harry Reid, Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson, Green Party Presidential Candidate Jill Stein, and Socialist Party Presidential Candidate Stewart Alexander.

If enough of "WE THE PEOPLE" say that they want answers, our leaders will have little choice but to answer.

The election is nearing, but you have provided few details of which social programs you would eliminate or, if reduced, by what percentage. What is your philosophy of governance and campaigning given that you ask for citizens to vote for you but do not provide them with enough specific knowledge to cast an informed vote?

President Obama has been called a "Socialist" by some. Can you compare and contrast the President's actions with the philosophic principles of the Socialist party? Where socialist philosophy differs from the President's actions, explain to the American people the difference(s) so that they can understand the difference between Socialism and the President's agenda.
