    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Tired of congressional deadlock and political games, the Free and Equal Elections Foundation is kicking off a national campaign right here in Little Rock.

    Christina Tobin, founder of the Free and Equal Elections Foundation says she brought several people to the capitol steps in Little Rock Saturday to fight the government games.

    "The two-party system has essentially rigged the electoral system to where we can't make any change," says Tobin.

    Dugan King, a political activist for more than twenty-five years says national change will only come when the two-party political system is broken.

    "We need more choices. We need more voices. We need to break this two party lock on our elections," says King. "It's a dialectic control system. If you study the money, if you follow the money you'll find that both parties are owned and controlled by Wall Street."

    Saturday, the group announced the kickoff of the United We Stand Festival--a concert promoting change in government that will tour ten cities across the country.

    The first event is in Little Rock June 22 at Verizon Arena.

    The United We Stand festival will feature musicians from the Foo Fighters and the Smashing Pumpkins along with speakers like Dr. Ron Paul and Jesse Ventura.

    The event will also be recorded and broadcasted globally.
