We the People (WTP) is a political party representing the very best that the USA has to offer to the world; among its ranks are many soldiers, congresspeople, and former presidents.

History

The party was born in the infamous ATO fights against Ajay. Gnilraps' victory in the Party President Elections in August 2012 was one of the most important ones and a turning point in the ATO fights. On eDay 1,732 he announced that the previously PTOed RLC is dead and that he will be founding a new party, We The People. Following the PP Elections in September 2012, WTP's existence was reconfirmed with another important ATO victory against the AFA.

Merger with LAP

In April 2014 LAP, another top5 US party, seized to exist and merged most of its members into WTP. The leaderships of both parties were also merged together. LAP used to be the newest political party at the time but unfortunately, it didn't last for long. It was founded as a tool to seal the ATO victory after two and a half years of fighting against Ajay's political movement, the AFA. In late 2013, the American ATO efforts focused on the creation of a new top5 party which is to kick the AFA out of the top5. As only the top5 political parties in terms of membership get on the ballot for the monthly Congressional elections, it was of vital importance that there is no PTO party electing congressmen. LAP entered the top5 in October 2013 and this was the first month in two years when all congressmen of the eUS Congress were loyal Americans. Nevertheless, the LAP seized to exist in the Spring of 2014 and merged with WTP. The merger had that effect that it also gave way to the controversial Black Sheep Party into Congress.

Origin of the Name

The words "We the People" are the first three words of the actual U.S. constitution, the preamble of which starts: "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

The Future

"At the end of the day, WTP is much more than a hunk of 40 gold occupied by 356 people. We are not just a 5th party, a shout feed or a place where ATOers graciously visit every few days.

We are the ill defined future,

A shadow of what lies yet to come,

A social experiment."
