What exactly is the CFAR (Contract For American Renewal), and how is it going to be effective?
#CFAR2018 is a straightforward electoral concept with an innovative and decisive twist. That twist is the legally-binding candidate contract.
Candidate contracts are our electoral tool — our weapon of choice — for challenging the anti-democratic status quo, and are the key component in our comprehensive strategy for electing candidates who are on the side of the people, and defeating candidates who serve the rich and powerful and the corporate state.
Central to the CFAR strategy are issues that are supported by 62%-80% of the voting public. Among these are raising the minimum wage, eliminating citizens united, supporting clean air and water, protecting Social Security and Medicare, single-payer health care, instituting infrastructure repair, and so on. We offer a completely new and unique mechanism for standing up to the establishment machine, which puts the priorities of the ruling class before those of the vast majority of everyday citizens.
The CFAR strategy is not some silly, “by-the-way”, fringe effort. We’re just getting started and CFAR signers are already in the thick of very important contests. For example …
• A CFAR signer is challenging the faux-progressive Dianne Feinstein in California
• A CFAR signer is challenging the corrupt Debbie Wasserman Schultz in Florida
• A CFAR signer is challenging establishment incumbent Debbie Stabenow in Michigan
• A CFAR signer is challenging the neoliberal establishment Claire McCaskill in Missouri
• A CFAR signer is challenging the embarrassing less-than-inspiring Ted Cruz in Texas
“Only vote for #CFAR candidates for Congress in November 2018!”
Our place on the political map:
We are non-aligned, non-ideological, non-partisan citizen activists, who are deeply concerned about the decaying state of our democracy, angry about abuse of power, and appalled by the marginalization of everyday citizens.
We are deeply patriotic, loyal to the United States of America and all of its citizens, and dedicated to enforcing their rights of full participation in the governing of our nation.
We are determined to implement full, true, representative democracy through dramatic electoral and systemic reform.
