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

Independence Party of Minnesota



Dear Citizens;

Ours was a government of the people intended to serve the needs of the people.

We have chosen to outsource our government to private enterprise somehow believing that government is inefficient. We pay taxes to support that enterprise and we pay directly for the services. We have a mercenary army that profits from sustaining war. We have a prison system that profits from increasing crime. We have a court system that profits from increasing convictions. We have a police system that profits from more arrests. We have banks controlling our money supply and lawyers controlling our public policy. We have private education that profits solely from government loans and HMO's controlling our health care.

When efficiency is measured by profit, then humanity has no value; family has no value; community has no value; the environment has no value. How much less government can we tolerate.




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
