The president, the secretary of state, the businessman, the preacher, the vendor, the spies, the clients and managers—all walking around Wall Street like chickens with their heads cut off—rushing to escape bankruptcy—plotting to melt down the Statue of Liberty—to press more copper pennies—to breed more headless chickens—to put more feathers in their caps—medals, diplomas, stock certificates, honorary doctorates—eggs and eggs of headless chickens—multi-taskers—system hackers—who never know where they’re heading–northward, backward, eastward, forward, and never homeward—(where is home)—home is in the head—(but the head is cut off)—and the nest is full of banking forms and Easter eggs with coins inside. Beheaded chickens, how do you breed chickens with their heads cut off? By teaching them how to bankrupt creativity.

The Founding Fathers formulated the Constitution with the purpose of having a state free from the notoriety of political parties. Unfortunately, they failed, as parties began forming and arguing as to whether the federal government or individual states must have the principal or greater authority. Yet despite this disagreement, we are witnesses of even more dilemmas accompanying our politics and government. In many research done in the past, we saw that one huge problem that is faced, and is continually being faced by America’s politics is—the intensifying proclivity of politicians in attempting to gain victory no matter what. Politicians view politics as nothing but war; but clearly, that must not be the case. This fierce competition degenerates into something very toxic. The desire to win at any cost is known to be a terrible trend; and it is actually where we are in, at this very moment.
Albeit all the political issues centering on the United States of America, we know that what’s needed is actually something basic but challenging. “What?” You might ask; nothing but a renewed sense of commitment to the wholeness of the democracy.
Because despite the harmony and prosperity being experienced by America, levels of civic engagement and trust in government are all at risk. Americans have started acting indifferent towards democratic engagement. And this is the main reason why this website was put up.
UCID Party is created to inform the general public of the present conditions concerning American politics, government, laws, infrastructure, and economy, among others. We concentrate on communicating to every one the exact status of the United States along with maximizing the use of the internet to reach a larger audience.
We take into account that everyone has a role to play. The goal of this website is to better produce awareness and draw relevant discussions regarding these varying topics. With this, we aim to supply timely news and articles that would serve as an eye-opener for everyone. Thus, UCID Party strives to make significant contributions in the field of politics—by putting big ideas into political action.
Because seriously, we don’t want to lose our heads…or our home.
