Our Values


A compound government that combines a central “federal” government with regional “state” governments. This is the foundation of our “checks and balances” system, where the federal and state governments are equal partners.


We strive for better government by the people, for the people, with elected officials serving the will of the people and the needs of the nation.


The most powerful tool state legislators have to reform the federal government also has the most stringent security as it requires 75% agreement.


Knowledge changes. Technology changes. Culture changes. By focusing on process improvements we can adapt to changing realities for the benefit of all Americans.


Our various experiences and combined knowledge (from all political ideologies) is the foundation for discussing, discovering, debating, and deciding what to do next.
