    "Vancouver, Canada. - June 22, 2002 - A new national political party is emerging in Canada committed to giving more power to votes cast by the poor. The Fair Choice Party, or FCP, founded by Steve Glickman was designed to decrease the disparity of political influence between the wealthy elite and the vulnerable poorer majority by giving the poor a weighted vote.
    "The FCP is out to change the world; without dismantling our government or economic structures. Our goal is to permit the necessary reforms and gradually shift politics from within so that everybody gets a more equal say in who should lead." It is a "gentle revolution" designed to help the poor gain equality and opportunity through a new and innovative political process.
    Glickman adds, "When we say 'power to the people' we mean it. We're not trying to be the spokespeople on their behalf, but rather give them a very real method to have their voices heard." This new political alternative remains adaptive and has no rigid agendas or fixed political platforms - however, at the forefront of the movement are the goals of establishing environmental integrity, a sustainable economy, and a newfound respect for the democratic system.
    "The challenge is that the poor are the least vocal, least organized, least observed, and least interested in politics. They feel that the government doesn't want to hear what they have to say, so they have no interest in participating in the voting process. Instead, what we are witnessing nowadays is an expression of frustration through violent and destructive means." The FCP attempts to reverse this trend by empowering the poor politically and helping them make a difference constructively and non-violently. This vote scaling idea proposed seems to be the only viable way to permit the principles of democracy, capitalism, activism, and globalization to live side-by-side in harmony."

    The sad thing is that they are probably more likely to keep their election promises than any other party in Canada!

    The Rhino Party sounds like my kind of Party! That law of gravity idea is particularly interesting.

    Fantastic. I would love to see a "party" like this one in the US. I bet they would get more votes than the Green Party!
