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

Independence Party of Minnesota



Dear Citizens;

My story is not about how I rose from rags to riches.  My story is a story like millions of other Americans facing the growing inequity of wealth in a political system that grows ever more exclusive.  The wealthy profit from war, they profit from illness, they profit from crime, they profit from education, they profit from Americas debt, they profit from destroying the environment. What do the rest of us get: declining wages, and increasing debt making it ever more difficult to compete against the dominance of wealth.


We need a major shift in priorities in Washington!




Paula M Overby, changing the dialogue of American politics

    Flip a Coin



         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.

    Party Values



    Some say that I can not win. Others say that I already have. To believe in the impossible is the determination to make it so. Shall we believe that the failure of our two party system, and the gridlock will be resolved by a one party system. The benefit of course being that we won't have to bother with elections anymore
