The mission of this site is to bring together a group of people who want to find out how they can make a difference in America today.
The site is about how Americans can get our elected officials to support Americans again, instead of letting Corporate Greed take over and destroy our economy and ways of life. I said WAYS; plural. We are a large country of over 300 million people. The strength of Our country has always come from the diversity we have nurtured. We embrace the best and turn away from the worst. The division of red & blue and other dividing concepts are there to confuse, and misguide, and divide us. Do NOT be dragged into it. We are about the same things. We want a good life in a great country, and we want to be able to trust that we can actually achieve that one goal, and pass it down to our children. We all have certain things in common, but rejoice in our own family and cultural traditions. Religion should be for families at home and in their church community. This is a solid pillar in to allowing everyone in the USA to live together in harmony under the roof of the constitution.
We will be making this a converged ideals discussion. What this means is that Red & Blue are beside the point, as is Religious vs Non-religious. What we need to do is pull together on the issues and make our politicians make the changes WE want as a country. Let's stand up and make a difference TOGETHER. The biggest threat to the American Way of Life is that we have no say through our elected officials any longer. We MUST gain this back as a matter of course. Our politicians run on emotional issues to get your votes, not on hard truths and solid plans to move into the future. Corporate interests have wrested control of our officials via money for campaigns, and by creating offbeat sayings that hit those emotional chords and change our vote.
Some people will take issue with the word "Progressive" in the name of the site. Let us be clear: using the word is to show a capability for sustainability moving forward. Things that can move forward in time and last. It's not about being liberal. Libertarian tendencies are more likely, and socially responsible and financially stable ideas will be advocated here. Corporate goals include making profit, and this is how it should be, but allowing them to spend their profits to change the fabric of our legislative body is a crime, and should be treated as such. Corporations want to make 15% growth in profits every quarter! This is not a sustainable pace! How have they made these goals come about in the beginning of this concept? By making their corporate owned profits from killing pensions, and bonuses, and "downsizing", and getting a hand in the cookie jar by also "offering" 401k accounts to their employees to replace those lost pensions. Now it's in the workforce's best interests NOT to harm the infrastructure that has been put in place! It's a shakedown, and it's criminal! However, we see few prosecutions and very few actually go to jail...
Let's make some changes!
