Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  1. Is this some kind of scam?
  2. Why should I support this effort?
  3. Are donations to The Sensible Party tax-deductible? If not, why not?
  1. Is this some kind of scam?
     
    No, absolutely not. The Sensible Party exists at this point as an idea, and if enough people support the idea then we will take the necessary steps to register it a real political party (this is more complicated than you might think).
  2. Why should I support this effort?
     
    The Sensible Party strives to bring dignity and honor to the American political system. If you are disappointed with the other political parties out there, and find yourself in agreement with the
    fundamental values expressed on this web site, then you have an opportunity to work with other like-minded people to improve the country for everyone.
  3. Are donations to The Sensible Party tax-deductible? If not, why not?
     
    No, donations (or gifts) to the Sensible Party are not tax-deductible. In fact, the Sensible Party is not yet a formal political party, so donations to the cause actually take the form of personal gifts to the founder, David B. Wright. However, donations to political parties are generally not tax-deductible in the United States anyway, so your donation for the Sensible Party has basically the same tax status as a donation to the Democratic or Republican parties. Please consult a qualified tax advisor if you have any questions about the impact of a donation on your personal tax situation.
