"Our future depends on government working"

Government can work again, but only when Americans support and vote for individuals who will follow the principles of consensus-building. The purpose of this website is to provide a gathering point for all of us who believe our elected officials need to put the country ahead of politics, to facilitate the distribution of news about activities taking place to further that goal, and to identify and support like-minded candidates and office holders.

We urge you to visit here often, "like" us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter. Together, we can be a part of making government work again.
