Common sense as well as common values all lead us. Our future depends upon it and our present is going to be vastly better when we get back to these basics.
What is the biggest public forum in the United States? We were told it's the Super Bowl. The ad shows kids working at blue-collar jobs, and the final statement is just written text: Who's going to pay for the trillion dollar deficit?
I find it odd that there's such strong objection to what is a clear way to assure that our elections are reliable and we can do a recount if there are any questions.
Touch screen voting is a fine thing so long as they have a voter-verified paper trail.
Even though mother's issues are not front page news, they touch us all personally, some more than others, and I believe passionately in the power of grassroots engagement.
Moveon is not a one-way broadcast media. The Internet, when used best, is a two-way media. We have a forum in which people can post comments and those comments can be rated. We get a sense of what people feel most passionately about.
We've got 50 percent voter turnout for presidential elections. That's appalling. We can do so much better.
It is time for us to focus on the issues that bring us together as a nation. Supporting parents' capacity to raise their children with the love and resources they need is simply the right thing to do.

We aim to express the passion of our members in something actionable that we can all in fact do.
We are mortgaging our future.
What we do is not going to be successful unless our members care about it.
A book reaches a different crowd of people. There are 50 different stories of very different individuals participating in their communities either locally or nationally in meaningful ways.
Most families need both parents to work. Moms need to be able to work and earn fair pay and have the flexibility in their jobs to also be primary caretakers.
I have a real sense of optimism that we are revolutionizing the way we do politics in this country.
