We believe divisive partisanship is frustrating our nation’s ability to get things done. For either side.
It prevents us from profitably collaborating on opportunities. It foments growing violence.
We advocate a nation that is as proud of its skill at finding collaborative solutions as it is of its awesome tradition of competing.
We are confident this is achievable, as our nation already practices — at home, at work, in social groups and on sports fields — the principle that one can achieve more working with others, than against them.
We will know we have succeeded when:
- Our government begins again passing imperative legislation by margins sufficient to survive subsequent election cycles, on issues such as Middle Class economic opportunity, Border Security/Immigration, Gun Violence, Climate Change, etc., and
- National polling heralds a shift in attitudes toward ideological counterparts from fixation on objectionable differences toward determined motivation to forge common ground.
That’s what we’re here to do.
We already know how to do it. All of us. We do it all the time. All day long. Every day. Everywhere.
