Position Papers
Why vote for a minor party candidate?
When you vote, you vote not just for someone to represent you but for a basic approach to policy. You can either vote to support the present system or to fundamentally change the system. Vote for me, Fred Foldvary, for Congress if you favor fundamental changes.
How to end poverty and create economic justice.
The main cause of poverty is government policy that takes away wages from workers and pumps up housing costs with subsidies to landlords. Raise wages and lower housing costs by shifting the source of public revenue from wages and profits to land rent.
Legalize Freedom!
The war on drugs and other federal crimes without victims costs billions and destroys civil liberties. End civil asset forfeiture and eliminate victimless crime laws.
Key Endorsements
  • My major endorsements are logic and evidence.
  • If you want to endorse me, I welcome it.
  • Endorsements are nice, but my ideas are the best endorsement.
