Guide lines

Though the Guide Lines are simple — and leave much space for change and debate — they are also strong guide lines that cannot be changed.

The Local Party must stand for what its name says: the best interests of the district. This means that ideology is less important than the actual outcome for the local needs. The local needs can be various: the local people, the local industry, the local environment, the local future, you name it. The Local Party encourages dynamic discussions first in which a lot of information is presented to as many people as possible. The political solutions come later. First stage is the assessment of the local needs. Though not the main guideline the Local Party will seek to deliver that vote that represents the local needs best. Sometimes the local need requires a Democratic standpoint, sometimes a Republican standpoint, sometimes it can be Green, Reform or something totally new. The outcome depends on what the local needs are. If there is no strong Local Party direction due to divided needs, opinions, and wishes, each elected official may choose to follow its own vision. Situation like this often show: fanaticism, rigor, heated debate, and worse. They are all signs that the local community is divided on this subject, which actually means that the local needs are divided. The Local Party will in that case not try to deliver a single voice, but splits up accordingly to the local needs. In all other cases the Local Party elected officials will try to hold on to one voice as much as possible.

When a Local Party clearly no longer represents the local needs, Head Quarters of the Local Party may decide to give the name Local Party to another party if this is an already established party that clearly represents the local needs better. As you can tell, this is pretty difficult to do, so there is no need to worry too much about this.

While there may never be a moment when the Local party wins enough elected officials to change the archaic two party system, this ideal must be presented front stage to the voters. At no point must any voter be able to say that they didn't know the Local Party was not about changing the archaic district system into modern proportional elections. However, Local Party official do not need to be fanatic about the ideal either, since reality indicates that local needs are the day-to-day issues for the elected officials.
