We believe in: 
a Constitutional Republic

A Constitutional Republic is a state where the officials are elected as representatives of the people, and must govern according to existing constitutional law that limits the government's power over citizens.

A Constitutional Republic is the current form of government in the United States.  We simply want our current form of government to work better.

we believe in:
a constitutional democracy

A Constitutional Democracy is a system of government in which political authority--i.e., the power of government--is defined, limited, and distributed by a body of fundamental law called "the Constitution" and, 
the electorate--the general voting populace within the political society--has effective means of:

  • controlling the elected representatives in the government and
  • holding them accountable (responsible, or answerable) for their decisions and actions while in public office.

we believe in:
the people's power

We believe in the people's power to reach out to local, regional, state, and national governments in order to provide a new grassroots "prescription" for returning the governance of the people (defining policies and legislating laws) back to the people.

We want to help local, regional, state, and national governments refine current policies and define new ones that are derived from the people and are consistent with the ideas and values that are consistent with our Constitutional Republic in ways that support the long-term flourishing of our Constitutional Democracy

we believe in:
the people's voice

We believe in the voice of the people - and its limitless potential.

We believe that government of, by, and for the people is essential.

We want to provide the tools needed for people to conduct research on topics of importance to them.  And, we seek to create a forum for the people to share the questions - and the answers - that are important to them.

We believe in non-partisan, objective, honest dialogue - and we understand the power of data-driven research.
