It is the intent of this website to stimulate debate, with the hope of introducing concepts for consideration that might bring about more favorable solutions to current policies.
                                      
We do not expect our readers to agree with all our views. In fact, we encourage responses that challenge our perspective. Without this approach, we are not embracing pragmatism. Emphasis is placed on change, which leaves room for thought, as a higher idea always stimulates the potential for greater possibilities.

random bits of thoughts ready to use

  • The money from special interest groups is influencing the information we are provided, resulting in social and economic control of our lives. The process of electing our government officials is in significant need of an overhaul in order for us to regain control and return to the systems which were envisisioned by the creators of our Constitution.                                                                                                                                               
  • Too often the interpretation of the intent of our Constitution ignores the changes which have occurred in our country since 1776, and which require significant debate and practical solutions. Responsible amendments are needed to apply the constitutional principles to our modern society. Special interest groups must not be allowed to control the outcomes of our elections. Until meaningful reform to political campaigning and the election process is adopted, the results will continue to be bought and paid for.                                                                                                                                                                                                      
  • The size of our government has grown to impact the size of our economy. If we continue along this course, the massive, impending liabilities will negatively impact our future, and, more importantly, the futures of our children and their children. Every government program is a jobs program. It is always inconvenient to make the difficult cost-cutting decisions that are required if we are to rid this country of wasteful inefficiences. No politician wants to be held responsible or accountable for the unsustainable growth in government. We must adopt incentives to address our problems. We cannot afford to ignore the inevitable should we continue business as usual in Washington.
                                             
  • The Republican Party is too far to the right, and the Democratic Party is too far to the left. The lack of effective leadership at all levels of government is causing total dysfunction and disservice to the  voters, and compromise—described as bipartisanship—is nonexistent.                                                                                                
  • More often than not, mainstream media is influenced by political and economic forces that cause bias and a total lack of objectiveness of the subject being reported. The result is the viewer or reader concludes a distorted perspective of the information. This is a disservice when one is attempting to grasp an informed opinion.
