This is an informal sign up for Open Source Party. We are currently organizing our charter to become an official legal political party with national, state and local chapters.
If you would like to engage in the process of organizing the charter and other aspects of building the ground floor of the party and the movement, please let us know about it here. And please let us know if you have activist or political experience.
The Open Source Party is a political movement that derives both inspiration and methods from Open Source software principles. The fundamental Open Source principles as they apply to this party, where laws, policies, and political processes are seen as a body of code, are:
- Transparency: the code, and any changes to the code, are visible and understandable.
- The code is accessible and modifiable.
- Inclusion: anyone can access the code and propose modifications, which may be accepted by democratic consensus, or by executive decision in a framework decided democratically
