Andrew W.K. has long stood for the uplifting and unifying power of positive partying. He will continue this tradition in an area that needs it desperately – governmental politics – with the formation of a new political party, The Party Party – where his goal is, “to remove the disillusioning aspects of politics and just have the party.”
The Party Party is simple in its mission: To free the American people from the dysfunction that is our two party system. At best, partisan politics has created an insurmountable divide that has separated the people into two categories of Democrat and Republican. The Party Party aims to provide an alternative to the divisive labeling of our current system. Most people have become too caught up in the bickering of our news cycles to realize that we ultimately desire the exact same things: reliable access to education, healthcare, and a sense of social equality. If enough people are willing to liberate themselves from choosing left or right, a third voice can emerge with a much more powerful message. A message that will open the eyes of our representatives and help them see that this “Us versus Them” mentality has kept our country from providing its people with a REAL sense of freedom. If we open our hearts and approach the problems we face with an open mind, real change can be achieved. We hope you will join us on this journey. States Andrew:
“This polarizing form of government has contributed to an adversarial mentality among voters and politicians. The binary ‘Us versus Them’, ‘Red versus Blue’, ‘Right versus Left’ mindset has been a perpetual distraction and distorted our shared quest to make tangible improvements to our country and ourselves. Constantly battling and blaming each other has hindered our ability to collectively and individually contribute towards the true destiny of the United States of America: the complete and total liberation of the human spirit.
Like many Americans, Andrew has been dismayed by the frustration and discord encouraged by the existing two party system. Andrew continues:
“Buried deep inside this mountain of overwhelming national anxieties, complex international dilemmas, and endlessly competing principals, there is a fundamental truth – that we are all in this together. Many of us fail to realize that at our very core, we ultimately do share many of the same essential values. These values are what make us Americans and also make us human beings. And if we can celebrate these shared qualities first, and look to find the best in ourselves and each other, perhaps we’ll find the path ahead to be slightly less treacherous. The world isn’t being destroyed by ‘Red or Blue’, ‘Left or Right’, ‘Us or Them’ – it’s being destroyed by one side believing the other side is destroying the world. Perhaps right now we just need a little less politics and a lot more party.”
The Party Party has gathered enough signatures to qualify as a legitimate and invigorating new option in the calcifying world of institutionalized political philosophy. For more information, please visit ThePartyParty.us.
