History of Populist USA
Populist USA was founded in the latter years of the last decade. As of now, it has yet to field any candidates for public office. However, Populist USA fully intends to field candidates as soon it becomes viable and as soon as suitable candidates come forward. Most likely, these candidates will first run for local office, a level of government which is quite often overlooked in its importance.
Populist USA looks to continue the proud legacy of 19th century populism, although not to quite the same extreme extent. Populist USA wants to get people involved in politics again. It wants to take the money out of politics and return Congress to its intended composition of citizen legislators, not unscrupulous career politicians.
In the future, Populist USA hopes to have candidates for local office run as soon as possible, hopefully before the end of the year 2003. It may be too late to make a run for the presidency in 2004, but hopefully by 2006, it will have become viable to run for a seat in Congress and by 2008, the presidency itself.
