The goal of this website is to recognize the shortcomings of our government and come to agreement on what can, and should, be done to correct those shortcomings. We start with an understanding that freedom is a very good thing, and a recognition that the founding fathers worked hard and creatively to ensure those freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution remain in place for all future generations. So when we move forward, we do so with reverence to the Constitution and those ideals it was founded on, and the subsequent important corrections and necessary inclusions gained though our history.
Introducing the mission and strategy to restore our freedoms and establish a responsible free press.
It's hard to avoid. Whether you lean left, right or are somewhere in the middle, our country is increasingly polarized. The news media seldom reports objectively. Congress is a disaster, and the other two branches are not much better. Our freedoms erode daily. Stop complaining and start taking action!
No doubt there is a serious problem, the cause of social injustice and systemic issues should be common ground for most people. The real problem is what to do about it. This video has some interesting ideas on how to start addressing the problem.
Calling it like he's lived through it. Which of course, he has.
President Obama educates students about the tendency to over-simplify the motivations of those who have a different point of view than you, and use social media to call out or shame others. We need to stop intolerance and purity tests. People are complicated and diverse. We should embrace those differences and learn from them.
Yes, all lives matter, but the point of the movement is to call attention to the reality that there IS social injustice today and we, as Americans, should recognize it so that it can be corrected. I know the statistic that black men are 2.5x more likely to be shot by a police officer than white men. But we shouldn't ignore other related statistics about crime that may explain this. And we shouldn't ignore the conditions within the community that lead to this crime. We need to address the core issues without weakening the communities that need protection. How many black people are killed each year in inner city violence? Don't those black lives matter too? We need to change the policies and governments that have perpetuated the poor conditions within these communities for far too long.

Interesting when both sides have a chance to discuss their points of view respectfully, We can all learn something here. One, people often don't give others with a different point of view the opportunity to be heard, which is unfortunate for both sides. Because I definitely learned somethings from listening to another point of view here. Second is the substance of what was said and how people seemingly deny factual/truthful information when presented by someone they are told to disagree with.
