Mission Statement

If a man desires to be free, he must have the freedom to speak his mind. Too often in these times, people refrain from voicing unpopular opinions for fear of retribution. An unwillingness to understand one’s fellow man creates an atmosphere that strains our democratic values and moves us away from the system our founders created to resolve our differences. Freedom from tyranny comes not only from the will of the people, but also from the ability for the people to express that will. Our mission is to create a platform where opinions from all perspectives along the political spectrum can coalesce and create a dialogue that empowers democracy. We hope that by extending some Common Courtesy to our fellow man, they will do the same, and together we can bring back a political atmosphere that values compromise and progress for all.
