I came to this forum looking for a think tank. I read the Politics blog and the debates but all I see are arguments with no one really facing issues and actually submitting ideas for change that will help America. In my opinion a stalemate accomplishes nothing. Doesn't this atmosphere remind you of the U.S. just before the Civil War? Anyway my point is we need thinkers outside the battle zone so I am reaching out to people whom I know see a bigger picture. This is my first thread so please indulge me if I have stepped across the lines. I seek truth and people who want to guide with their wisdom. I will continue to read the Political Forum, it's like reading the editorial/responce pages in the newspaper. But I get little satisfaction when there is no agenda nor compassionate desire to join forces to turn things around. I thank you for your time.
