Take the money out of politics.
Put the people back in!


Independence Party of Minnesota



Reneging on their promise to participate, the withdrawal of Jason Lewis and Angie Craig from the scheduled August 3 Farmfest Forum has resulted in the cancellation of the CD2 portion of the debate. Apparently, each candidate refused to take a stage with Independence Party Candidate Paula Overby.... “Our people are divided, not by love and hate but by our two major parties," said Overby. "These are the exact actions that are polarizing the public and dividing this nation." …  The Farmfest forums have a long-standing tradition of being one of the earliest forums on the political calendar.  "This is not a time for political cowardice," said Overby. "If ever there was a time for politicians to boldly embrace the will of the people, that time is now."

         Bill Maher has focused national attention on Minnesota's Second district with an aggressive assault against our current house representative. There is a presumption that if a Republican is the problem then a Democrat must be the solution but problems in Washington run much deeper than that. Red or Blue, Washington is about Wall Street, focused on wealth and profits. That's good for a few wealthy investors but has not produced economic prosperity for the general population. For decades we have seen our local economies consumed by Corporate operations with declining wages and jobs disappearing overseas. Millennials know that they are not expected to do as well at their parents. That's not right.


         In 2014, citizens of Minnesota's Second Congressional District have an opportunity to make a real difference at the polls. Paula Overby is a clear alternative to the political paralysis and polarization of a two party system that has failed to adapt to changing demographics, technology, and economic globalization. 


         Paula Overby stands for government of the people, open government, and restoring local community development and investment that promotes economic sustainability. Paula Overby stands for Personal Freedoms and Civil Liberties, opposing the massive global arms buildup, the costly and violent war on drugs, and our failed military engagements in the Middle East. Social engineering is not the role for congress and government prohibitions are not a solution to complex social issues.
