We can help someone. If you would like to use an office in exchange for answering the phone and a nominal monthly fee, contact Dave Daniels about sharing the Party office, and having it almost all to yourself

AND OF COURSE... We can always use your money. If you can afford it please pledge support and/or join the party as a paying member. Our fore-fathers, and mothers, pledged their oives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to give us the freedoms we take for granted. Can you Please 1/2 of your weekly (pink one - twinkee, chocol;ate, cigarettes, beer) ration to help maintain those freedoms? A good way to do this is to have a jar, and everytime you purchase one of the pledged items, put a matching amount in the jar.
