About Us

America is the greatest country in the world, but we have grave concerns about her future. Our children and grandchildren will not have the same opportunities that we have been blessed with if we do not address America's political decay.  We are convinced this decay is due to politicians losing sight of their mission: to represent the people.  Politicians now serve special interest groups, their party, and themselves — and that must change.

GOOOH's solution is simple: replace the politicians with 435 everyday Americans. We trust that representatives selected by their peers via the GOOOH system will serve our country better than the professional politicians obsessed with staying in power and controlled by special interest money and political parties. If we want things done differently, we must change the way we choose our representatives.

Each of the founders of GOOOH have strong (and differing) personal beliefs about how we would like to see this country run, but we have put our differences aside to create a non-partisan process that allows everyday Americans to participate - on equal terms - with the rich and powerful. We have taken money out of the equation, added accountability to the process, and given the candidate selection process back to the people.

GOOOH will appeal to the majority of our countrymen, but not everyone. It will not appeal to politicians or party loyalists - we believe that the political parties as they exist today are a big part of the problem. Nor will the system appeal to individuals that devalue the constitutional heritage that our Founding Fathers laid down for us - fringe and special interest groups are not likely to be advanced as Candidates by their district peers when their agendas are revealed in their Questionnaire answers and Selection Session interviews.

We want change. We want true representatives of the common man in office once again. We seek businessmen, teachers, pastors, architects, tradesmen, managers, policemen, theologians, engineers, farmers  and other professionals. We are searching for the modern day incarnations of Franklin, Madison and Jefferson. We are looking for men and women just like you.
