Welcome!

So how well does the current political landscape of America reflect the needs and desires of Millennial Americans and our global citizens? If you ask us, we’d say far from ideal. Well, we’re looking to change that. NERDS is an aspiring grassroots national (and perhaps global) political party looking to revolutionize politics by finally taking it to the 21st century. We are comprised of nerds looking to solicit fellow nerds to become members of our party. And if you’re not a “nerd”, that’s awwwh-right with us! By joining our posse you’ll become a nerd by association just like how it used to be in high school.

Platform Statement

The NERDS Party believes that the majority of our current elected officials and their respective political and legislative process are rudimentary when it comes to leveraging modern technology and social media with their political engagement practices. Sure, most elected officials may have a Twitter account, Facebook page, and a website… the basics. But how effective is their political engagement process in terms of incorporating the opinions of us the citizens they serve that a true democracy should strive to accomplish? You can’t gather deep, diverse, and meaningful ideas and opinions by hosting a town hall meeting and picking out a handful of volunteers to ask questions and voice their concerns that happens ad hoc or once in a blue moon. Not to underestimate the personal touch. Town hall meetings definitely has its value but we believe that complex subject matters need to be streamlined so that the appropriate audiences are gathered and assembled with their respective online forums which is what Facebook posts and various forum websites are good at doing nowadays. By engaging the threads on posts and forums, you truly become an intellectual participant of the cause. Online teleconferencing is also a viable avenue of communion amongst us nerds as well.

Socialism? In America? What have we been smoking? Obviously only sativas! 😉 We believe an accurate gauge on the potential success of socialism in America depends on how idealistic and educated you are about socialism. It is my opinion that the majority of well known socialist regimes failed due to utter immorality, mismanagement, corruption, and poor circumstances. And not to mention the lack of a sustainable economy due to minimal individual incentives which capitalism averts by nature amongst individuals obsessed with increasing the number in their bank account. The Soviet Union collapsed after all the years competing with America when capitalistic velocity was paramount enticing them to misappropriate their expenditures out of competitive nationalism. Our argument as to why socialism will work in/for America is that we have already succeeded as a self-sustaining democratic economic juggernaut with much more to give than we are currently giving and the individual incentive for us Americans to succeed at its core is rooted more towards our innate passion for progress and our innate desire to satisfy our endless curiosity; both of which being noble virtues over the idea of money itself.

So what else is required for a successful social democracy? We believe wholeheartedly that circumventing corruption via decentralized governance is the secret sauce. The key to a successful social democracy is to uphold the consensus of the will of its citizens. So without the opportunity of deceit and corruption interfering with the integrity of our government, we believe that a socially democratic America will indeed flourish. Our party will utilize Sovereign created by Democracy.Earth to manage our ballots and hold our internal elections.

Without further adieu, let us introduce our core political agenda. Here are our key party principles:

Global Economic Parity

Our party believes that America should lead the initiative with the support of the G7 to cultivate and empower economically deprived countries so that each and every single country will have the opportunity to achieve and sustain economic equality and engage in universal fair trade by standing in their own power not too far in the near future. We believe that each and every person on Earth are sovereign citizens of the planet and nobody should have any more or less of an opportunity than another based on their nationality or location.

Ultra Progressivism

As we embark on venturing into the Quantum Age, our party will nurture the philosophy, practice, and cultivation of recognizing and supporting all progressive agendas in all aspects of existential practicality; including but not limited to science, technology, social and economic equality, globalization, humanitarianism, education, activism, artistic expression, individualism, etc. Our goal is to become the political party that revolutionizes the advancement of the human race.

Autonomous Equal Opportunity

The current social, economic, and cultural landscape fostered by capitalism and the political and legislative policies backing it only provides real equal opportunity to the participants within the upper echelon of the big corporate machine which excludes the majority of the population who are less fortunate. Our party believes that the availability and sustainability of real equal opportunity should accommodate all facets of our citizens regardless of their social, economic, or cultural status as inspired by the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution. America, “The Land of Opportunity” should not exclude anyone by any means under any circumstances.

National Income Redistribution

As a socialist party upholding the ideals of Marxism, we are advocates for the socialist virtue of individual income equality via the enactment of a national income redistribution framework against the upper class for nerds. The goal is for individuals earning less than a certain amount determined annually be compensated as such based on their academic and/or philanthropic accolades by requiring the mandatory contribution from corporations and individuals earning more than a higher amount determined annually but at the same time allowing them to retain a pliable amount of their earnings for their own modest, humble, sensible agendas. So do well in school or help out your community and the government will make sure you get compensated financially. The exact formula for how much each individual or household receives and how much each corporation or individual contributes needs to be blueprinted thoughtfully and carefully.

Youth Empowerment Initiatives

Our party acknowledges that the youth of our current generation are unique and different compared to those of previous generations and that the majority are currently handicapped by the existing social, economic, and political state of affairs. As savants of the Information Age, our youth are more intellectual, independent, versatile, and sophisticated than ever before. And as such we believe that our society and political landscape should adapt to their dynamism. In our opinion, the most glaring problem our youth face today is having to worry about the debt from their high college tuition. We believe that free college tuition and tuition reimbursement are crucial initiatives in supporting our youth. We also recognize the necessity of our youth to embrace their own incipient maturity and individuality and as such we will be pioneering initiatives that will harness and empower their success and livelihood.

Idiocratic Debates and Decision Making via Technology and Social Media

In addition to hosting traditional town hall events, members of our party running for elected office will be subject to engaging in idiocratic debates and discussions about their initiatives via forums, social media, and teleconferencing so that they can take into account the input from members of our party. Viable matters may be subject to polling in order to gauge the climate of the constituents. Members of our party will have an account on our website that’s also accessible via an app where they can have discussions in our forums while tracking the engagement, popularity, and performance of our aspiring candidates. These metrics along with the context of their posts and teleconferencing participation on relevant subject matters will be used by our party members to determine which candidates they’ll vote for. Pollings and ballots will be furnished utilizing Sovereign created by Democracy.Earth.

No to Trump!

Need we say more?

We hope that you’ll buy into our unified globally progressive vision and agenda for a political party not looking to blend in with the status quo. We truly believe that with the gathering of all the nerds on our planet we can make tangible miracles happen for our entire society and its social and economic infrastructure. Our motto is: “Make room to dream big for us all… for the bigger the dream, more are bound to follow.”
