“United We Stand, Divided We Fall” was first popularized by Patrick Henry and has been a caution uttered many times in U.S. history. However, other than the Civil War, there has not been a time where this country has been so divided.
If you're tired of watching the news, our failing government and the current state of our Union, then do something about it! This website discusses the issues that divide us -- the causes and potential solutions -- recognizing that each side has valid concerns and that by working together, we can take back control of our failing government through peaceful civic action and respectful discussion. Join the discussion and work to make sure the "Government of the People, by the People and For the People shall not perish from the Earth." Afterall, whether we like it or not, our future depends on it.

Thank you so much for being part of this American community.
The press and mainstream media are pushing an agenda and promoting fear to control how people think, instead of providing objective information for people to make decisions for themselves. Outright lies, half-truths and notable omissions are rampant and are used to persuade viewers. People need an objective & free press to effectively govern themselves.
The integrity of our elections is absolutely essential in the administration of our republic. Without faith in this process, our society collapses. We should have a system that is beyond reproach and secure from tampering, foreign influence, gerrymandering and fraud.
Our children are our future. Our system of public schools and colleges should be able to graduate literate, thoughtful, and capable students without indoctrinating them to a political philosophy. They should be able to think critically, possess some vocational skills as well as an appreciation for America (along with an understanding of its flaws and our progress in correcting them).
Free speech, privacy, discrimination, the right to protect yourself, bias in government's application of justice, and a host of other issues need clarification, improvement or strengthening, Protection of our civil rights is what this country is founded upon. We have seen an erosion to these rights and limits to our freedoms that are essential to our character and longevity as a nation.
Entrenched politicians and bureaucrats aren't responsive to the will of the people and tend to concentrate power among a ruling class. Limiting their term in government service allows new ideas, more opportunity for individuals to contribute and get involved in public service, and decreases the financial burden of government pensions.
Money is power. Because our politicians need money to run for office, those with the money have the power to exert undue influence over who runs, policies and legislation. This pertains not only to wealthy individuals, but to corporations, political action committees, lobbyists, foreign entities and unions. We need to address this dangerous threat to democracy.
These two issues are fundamental in our security and progress as a nation. We need immigration (both for moral and economic reasons) and secure borders. However, illegal immigration is both a financial burden and threat to our citizens' security. Finding an appropriate balance of compassion and security is the challenge taken up here.
Less reliance on foreign governments to supply critical manufacturing and technology. This also means more American jobs and less trade deficit. Vocational training required in public education and mandatory public service for 2-6 years after high school either in the military, construction corps of senior care promotes self reliance in youth and community values.
Offer a real vision for inner cities including school choice, drug addiction treatment, homelessness solutions, crime, economic opportunity zones, improved public education...
Pick a city like Washington DC as a pilot.
Leading internet companies continue to limit access to their platforms to causes, companies and organizations that conflict with their political views. Unlike the phone companies that provide a network and don't control what is said on it, these companies restrict lawful free speech and commerce.
Large population centers drive policy decisions state-wide. However the needs of these metropolitan areas are much different that those of rural areas. There needs to be some protections in place to prevent short-sighted policy decisions, meant to address local issues, from adversely impacting larger, less dense but equally important geographic regions.
Every once and a while, we get a haircut. Every moment our government bureaucracy grows. Agency overlap, rule-making outside of the legislative, inefficiency and cost are all issues that need to be addressed. Like getting a haircut, the process of limiting government bureaucracy is a necessary maintenance function of the citizenry.
Given the current reality that is the United States today (media bias, censorship, educational indoctrination, cancel culture, victimhood, moving away from God, open borders, expanding government, weakening military and rising threats to our security from at home and abroad), turning this country around will take an act of God.
These may be the days, referred to as "birth pains," leading up to the Rapture and that the decline of the United States to impotence is God's plan. It certainly seems like this is where we are heading. But it may also be important to understand how we got to this point and to determine where corrections can be made. If not for ourselves, then for societies in the future.
