America needs some tough love
America faces serious challenges, but has an un-serious culture. And the heart of the problem is that few of the “grownups” – the people in charge, the ones who have traditionally spoken the tough truths – are willing to do anything but tell people what they want to hear.
Politicians are no use – they just want to pander for votes. Most of the media is just an extension of the Democratic party, and many of the rest are afraid to challenge their audience, lest they lose viewers/readers/listeners.
This leaves us with a stultified national dialogue. A country that can’t even discuss its real problems.
So it’s up to us “regular folk” to step up and force that conversation. This site is a humble attempt to contribute to this effort.
