Partisanship is at an all-time high, and it’s holding our nation back. On issues like health care, immigration, debt, and taxes, our political discourse has become so divisive that we cannot find the path to compromise and agreement. But there must be a place in the middle where we can meet, work together, and get something done to improve the lives of Americans.
Common Ground Solutions has big goals: to increase civic engagement; improve the quality of political discourse; highlight real-world stories of people working together across political lines; and forge moderate, commonsense solutions to our biggest challenges. We believe that the power to govern is not a prize to be won, but a responsibility to be used wisely and preserved for generations to come. The first step toward fulfilling that responsibility is finding common ground.
Common Ground, a book by Howard Konar, maps out many of the most important issues facing us today, and offering new perspectives we can use to analyze and address them together. It’s also a call to action, with recommendations for bringing active civic engagement into everyday life and holding our leaders accountable. Both pragmatic and inspiring, Common Ground is a refreshing look at the ideas that can help us have a more constructive political conversation.
