Congress is bought. Everyone knows it. Conservatives know it. Liberals know it. The Democrats are bought. The Republicans are bought. They don’t represent us. They represent the donors who fund their campaigns and promise them well paying jobs after they leave office. We have taxation without representation. Our democracy is in serious trouble.
So what can we do to regain our ability to make our votes count and take back our democracy? We have to concentrate all of our resources into one single attack – making sure we restore the voice of the people and integrity to our elections.
We must add a Free & Fair Elections Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to preserve, protect and defend our representative democracy and constitutional republic.
Wolf-PAC is a cross-partisan grassroots organization of volunteers working to do just that.
The Free & Fair Elections Resolution is state level legislation that simply asks for a national conversation somewhere other than Congress on how we can make our electoral process work better for the average citizen.
Join us in this new American revolution. Let's take our country back and move forward together.
Through their state legislatures and without regard to the federal government, the people can demand a convention to propose amendments that can and will reverse any trends they see as fatal to true representative government.

The important part is…where we start to make this a better country. It's gonna change from us, not them. And getting rid of the system of legalized bribery that we call politics in this country is step one.
