The Alliance Party sent out the following newsletter Monday updating email subscribers on the latest party news for this month:
The 2020 election is unprecedented for many reasons; one of which is that a new political party and a new approach to politics has now been formally introduced to millions of Americans. In 15 states the Alliance Party and/or its candidates appeared on voters’ ballots for the very first time.
In less than 2 years- a fraction of the time required, for example, of the Green and Libertarian parties to reach the same levels of national visibility- the Alliance Party has established itself as a viable political force.
It has been said that when the future arrives, it is recognized by only a few. History will show that the election of 2020 was the “arrival” of the beginning of a political transformation in American politics.
Thank you so much for your support and willingness to help to define and to enable the transformation.
The Alliance Grows: First and foremost, it should be noted that the Alliance Party finished 5th overall, nationally, in a field of 36. Our state candidates demonstrated with their outstanding performances that our message resonates, and how important state and local candidates are.
One of our important outcomes was national exposure. In states where we appeared on the ballot we generated local and statewide media for candidates and our party; generated advertisements for candidate campaigns; and perhaps most importantly, put the ‘Alliance Party’ name in the hands of everyone who received a ballot. We are also listed as a key player in sites such as Wikipedia, where we had no listings before.
Another result of participation in this election cycle is we have added two ballot qualified state affiliates in Mississippi and via a merger with the American Delta Party we added Delaware. We have gained many supporters, new leaders and are now also organizing in Rhode Island, Arkansas, Indiana and North Carolina. We are in dialogue with other parties regarding potential future mergers and new volunteers who are developing new Alliance state affiliates.
In addition, we already have candidates for 2022 who will be seeking their state AP nomination.
What’s Next? What we will not be is a ‘one and done’ party, an ‘every four years’ one, or even one that ‘disappears’ until the next election.The movement for a better political system that is represented by the Alliance Party is far too large, and far too important to be a temporary phenomenon.
We are in the process of reviewing lessons learned and the implications of our results. 2021 will be dedicated to building a grassroots state affiliate system whereby the party will have its foundation in local districts. Developing a support system for all of our leaders will be an integral piece of this.

Please help us defray the costs of our 2020 campaigns and prepare for the next steps Your contributions are an investment in the changing of our broken American system, with immeasurable rewards for your children and grandchildren. We are very grateful to those who have helped us get this far…
Please note that the party is 100% volunteers, no one receives any monies for their dedicated service. All contributions go to party building.

For example, how did the Alliance Party perform in this election, at all levels of the ballot? And where did we end up as a nation? Are both the Democrats and Republicans out of touch with the real America? And is America ready for a third party insurgence? These topics and more are brought into a very interesting conversation with some of the top experts within the Alliance Party organization. . Listen
