WHAT DOES ALL-WIN MEAN? IS IT PRACTICAL?
All-Win means that the general frame from the outset of any discovery process is the question: How can everyone win? By asking this question it sets any dialogue in a profoundly more creative direction than the standard frame of ‘what does our group want and how can we get it? At the heart, an all-win frame demands a very high bar of diligence and creativity as any solution that does not approach a win to any given stakeholder is not an adequate solution. We believe that our democratic process can bring us together rather than split us apart. There are critical skills and paradigms required to have effective all-win discourse, including listening, establishing common ground, integrating multiple perspectives and holistic consideration, and we are committed to raising up the next generation of leaders who have this training and these values to lead society, business and government.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A 'MEMBER'OF ONENATION?
Registering as a member of OneNation Party USA is a formal act of stepping forward and engaging as a participant in the network. Members are helping to shape and lead the emerging new party. Membership is for those who sense that politically organizing outside the two party system is needed in our nation today and want to help ensure the long-term success of this new political vehicle. Members selected monthly dues amount to financially participate in the party as well. We have programs being developed to help educate, empower, engage and organize our members. OneNation will not be formally recognized by state governments until 2021, at which point you will have the ability to legally register your party affiliation when you register to vote and that will impact your participation in primary elections based upon the primary election laws of your State Election Commission. If you would like to get involved, take the next step and become a member of OneNation.
WHO IS BEHIND ONENATION? HOW DID IT START? WHO'S FUNDING?
OneNation is a movement that has come from the people, for the people. There have been no interests behind the formation of OneNation other than concerned citizens. As founders we understand that Millennials are the new voting majority and will be for many years to come. We are choosing to step forward now, to get organized around stewarding America well for generations to come. 100% of our funding has come from members. Advisors, collaborators and allies from all ages, races and backgrounds have stepped forward to play various roles in helping to shape, steward and actualize the mission and vision of OneNation Party USA.
WHAT MAKES ONENATION DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PARTIES LIKE THE GREEN PARTY & LIBERTARIANS?
One of the primary differences is that the Libertarian and Green Party were formed taking certain positions on topics polarizing some towards them and others away. They have become plotted on the axis of left and right and therefore limit their base to being a subset of liberals for the Green and a subset of conservatives for the Libertarians, generally.
In Contrast, OneNation is a party devoted to the unification of Americans, regardless of political ideology under the premise of more creative, mature and impactful discourse. OneNation is truly designed for 100% of Americans. Like the Constitution, which gave us processes on how to make decisions together, OneNation is bringing processes forward to help us make better decisions as a nation for our rapidly transforming world..
Another difference is timing. The Green and Libertarian parties were formed during different generations. OneNation is emerging with the Millennial generation. Millennials are the new voting majority and will inform the political scene for decades to come. Millennials were raised with a unique set of awarenesses, connectivity and technological literacy. Millennials are disrupting every industry by applying a new paradigm to existing sectors. Green and Libertarians brought new content but the same paradigm to politics. We believe that the Millennials can bring a new paradigm to politics and fundamentally disrupt this sector as well.
WHAT ARE THE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS TO FORM A NEW POLITICAL PARTY IN AMERICA?
Legal recognition of ‘Major Party’ status occurs at the state level. Each state has its own requirements for a political group to be recognized as a Major Party and provided ballot access for elected positions within the state and country. OneNation Party USA is in a proto-party phase which means that we are building a brand, platform and membership base while preparing to fulfill the requirements of various states to register as a Major Party. Legally, all candidates running on the OneNation platform in 2020 will be Independents running in conjunction with the OneNation brand and network. In the meantime, we are moving towards gaining official legal status and official ballot access ongoingly at which point voters will be able to legally register as a member of OneNation and find OneNation candidates on their ballots.
