I thought I'd make a website where people with ideas about solving America's issues can express themselves, and -rather than be lost somewhere on a message board- the ideas would be collected and presented upfront, on their own page. Kind of an easier reference for the views of the people on the street. It's not just the people on Capitol Hill who think about ways to fix our country, and our world. Everyone does it, to a certain extent, but there are very few places to get those views out there, in a lasting, meaningful way (unless you're a pundit, or former politician).
You sign up as a member, pick an issue, type out a comprehensive account of how you'd solve it, send it in on the site's contribution form, and it'll get it's own dedicated page, with a link to it on the page of the issue being discussed.
While, yes, I am plugging my new site, I do not make any money off of any part of it. I am severely limited in my ability to participate in restoring democracy to this nation (I wish I could've been in NYC yesterday), as I am taking care of my ailing wife, so I thought this might be a way that I could help the struggle - by organizing and preserving everyday peoples' grand ideas about our big problems.
I hope you won't think I'm a piece of sh*t, and will maybe even join me over at www.armchaircongress.com, to contribute to what I hope will be a great tool for genuine democracy.
