Forum Post: Is there a real site for solutions?

Are there any real sites that are working for solutions? This site has so much promise but it is infected by radical lunatics that continue to muddy the waters.

There are real issues this country and the world needs to discuss but there are few opinions that actually offer a solution. I would like a moderated site where people actually stay on topic and seek solutions.

Any suggestions?

While I've had some good discussions here, I think it's time to log off and try to spend time and effort organizing locally. That being said, the Forum is a good place to keep the rest of the world updated on local efforts, successes, failures and lessons learned :)

Farewell divineright. Something to think about in your new efforts:

"The events above noted gave unmistakable evidence of the unity of American sentiment against British oppression; but something more must be done to bring about united action. There must be some central authority to which all the colonies could turn for guidance. This political union came about in the formation of a Continental Congress. This Congress was the result of a spontaneous and almost simultaneous movement throughout the country. From New York came the first call.

Paul Revere had been sent from Boston on a fleet horse to rouse the people of New York and Philadelphia, but ere he reached the former the Sons of Liberty had taken action for a congress. The Massachusetts legislature added its voice in June. Delegates were chosen in all the colonies except Georgia, and they met in Carpenter's Hall, Philadelphia. Among them we find such leaders as Washington, Lee, and Henry of Virginia, Dickinson of Pennsylvania, Samuel and John Adams of Massachusetts, Roger Sherman of Connecticut.

The Congress was not a constitutional body; many of its members had been chosen irregularly. Its authority was limited to the willingness of the people to respect and obey its suggestions and mandates. The very fact of its existence had a meaning of great significance, but it was too profound for the comprehension of George III. It was less a congress than a national committee, an advisory council of continental magnitude. It attempted no national legislation."

Thanks for your post and inspiration AFarewellToKings! I'm not abandoning the Forum, I'm just making an effort to re-focus the majority of my time into direct action.

There isn't a place trolls haven't invaded. I wish the same.

i thought the solutions were fairly obvious - money out of politics and more democracy to start - seems to me that the problem is not a forum to discuss issues but the hard work of organizing people. join an organization that is working to change things - in any way that interests you and get to work - door to door, handing out leaflets etc

http://www.the99declaration.org/ and they have a real site in Philadelphia too where YOU will stay on topic and participate in the solution. I Wonder what will be going on here in 90 days
