Lead America Forward
American politics has grown increasingly polarized and dysfunctional. Irresponsible politicians are undermining our Constitution, causing lasting harm to our nation and political system.
Even more alarming, many Republicans and Democrats in communities across the country have stopped listening to one another. They have completely disengaged, creating a rift with no room for cooperation or compromise.
The irony is that if you look at what really matters to Americans, we are not that far apart. In fact, most Republicans and Democrats want exactly the same things.
We worry about our jobs and the safety of our families. We want to see less government waste and corruption. We would like clean air, food and water. We value our freedom and independence. And we believe in a system where everyone has an opportunity to succeed.
Instead, what we get are inflammatory tweets, partisan rhetoric, and headline-grabbing battles, while little progress is made on the issues that matter. It’s all a show meant to distract and divide us.
That’s why I decided to speak out. It’s vital for the health of our democracy that we move both parties back to the center, while exposing the lies that demagogues use to pit us against one another. If we are going to achieve America’s full potential and solve our most pressing problems, we need to come together, instead of blaming each other.
George Washington got it right when he said that political parties are “potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people…”
My mission is to show Americans an alternate path. I don’t believe in political parties. I believe in the American ideals and values enshrined in our Constitution, and I want us, as a nation and people, to live up to them.
I’m asking you to join me in this effort to cross the political divide and unite Americans under a common set of principles and shared beliefs in what we can accomplish together. Only with this type of leadership can we bridge our differences, work as one nation, and take on the challenges of the future.
