It's pretty simple.

Our founding fathers figured it out years ago: 1 + 1 = 3

Call it new math. Call it whatever you want, but John Adams and Thomas Jefferson couldn’t have written the Declaration of Independence without each other, and they were adversaries.

Their politics differed widely, but they did it together and got it done. Together. The result was a magnificent document that’s more effective because of their collaboration. Fast-forward, here’s what we still value:

  • Non-partisanship.

    We’re all in this together.

  • Critical Thinking.

    Knee-jerk rhetoric is so 20th century.

  • Open Minds.

    Closed minds, please exit.

  • Respect.

    Schoolyard name-calling and insults? Are you 10 years old?

  • Constructive Criticism.

    And collaborative attitude. No bandwidth for destructive comments, snarky attitudes, or blame games.

  • Facts.

    Lies, hyperbole, intentional misrepresentation, distortion, and omissions trigger the eject button.

  • Transparency.

    You'll have to find another venue for hidden agendas.

  • Feelings and Empathy.

    Welcomed, but keep the condescension and pity to yourself.


  • Your thoughts.
  • Your debates.
  • Your votes.

Your voice.

Heard and acted upon.
