PACHYDERM PREAMBLE
It is our belief that most of the corrupting influences in American Politics could be erased
and government made more responsive by one basic improvement. That is, simply for more
good citizens to participate in politics. “We get the government we deserve,
not the one we wish for
,” remains a guide-star for a free people. We offer
a meaningful movement of political clubs as the most practical means by which
a broad citizen participation in politics may be achieved.
