Country Over Party

Frustrated at the lack of common sense leadership – the perpetual gridlock, political bickering, and the loss of accountability?

Are you sick and tired of the fact so many elected leaders are all talk and no action, finger pointing and no fact-finding, too much division and not enough inspiration, all dogma and no doing?

So are We.
The United States Constitution Begins.

"We the people of the United States in order to form a more perfect union…"

It’s time we the people change what is going on in America and return to the principles enshrined in our Constitution and the Declaration of Independence and elect authentic leadership. We can put the united back in the United States.

About Us

Founded in a coffee shop in Austin, Texas, ListenTo.Us is based on a simple idea: America demands that we have leaders who put Country over Party using the Common Good as our guiding star. We need a new way forward. If we want to change our government, we have to change our politics.

Political partisans and the entrenched two-party system (or “duopoly”) have been too loud and too powerful for too long. They seem to respond only to special interests and personal ambition, putting their egos ahead of our community interests.

OUR FOUNDING FATHERS: The Original Entrepreneurs

September 6th, 2016

Our founders feared exactly what has come to pass in the 21st century. John Adams wrote, “There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the Republic into two great parties”. And George Washington in his farewell address said “Let me warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party.”

“There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the Republic into two great parties”

John Adams

We need an uprising of passionate and purposeful Independents in Texas and across America to right our governance, and restore the values our founders put in place more than 200 years ago. As the Declaration of Independence begins, “When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…”

“Let me warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party.”

George Washington

    5 Principles

    • Country over Party
    • Common Sense for the Common Good
  • Open & Transparent Servant Leadership
  • Accountable Innovative Local Solutions
  • Mutual Respect and Independent Thinking

America is an amazing place with extraordinary people, but our political system is rigged against our best intentions and has failed us. If we want to solve the many problems we face -- a stagnant economy for too many, irresponsible fiscal budgeting, infrastructure demands at every level, security needs at home and abroad, a need for expanded national service, and the need to revive the American dream -- we must have leaders independent of the two dominant and domineering political parties.

Together we can build momentum and create a movement that reflects the consensus that already exists across our country. We can band together and rebuild our country and ensure the promise of America remains a reality.
