May 10, 2022 - Democracy Would Be Easy If Everyone Agreed With Me 

The subject line of this email is obviously tongue-in-cheek, but it gets at an important point when we talk about “bipartisanship” and “compromise” in lawmaking. As both Layla Zaidane (of Millennial Action Project) and Robert Talisse mention in this Divided We Fall article, when Americans talk about compromise, what they mean is that the “other side” should come to their perspective.

May 3, 2022 - Taking An All-Of-The-Above Approach to the Economy

Our economy is not working for millions of Americans. Regardless of the cause, Americans are hurting financially. And this pain is being inflamed by inflation, which is stretching tight household budgets even thinner (it’s also making America even more polarized as everybody tries to figure out who to blame).

April 26, 2022 - Major Membership Growth Update; And Civvys Deadline Extended!

More and more people are waking up to the realization that we need to work together to get America back on track. And when I say “we,” I mean all Americans; all ideologies, races / ethnicities, ages, etc. We are not going to recapture the American Dream if our only answer to every problem is “Elect more [insert your party here]!”

April 12, 2022 - Removing Politics from Elections? Yes, Take The Pledge.

Back in 1947, Winston Churchill famously said “[D]emocracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.” America is not a pure democracy, but democratic institutions (i.e. voting) are the foundation of our country and keep it functioning.

March 21, 2022 - Do You Want Common Ground? Think About It.

In 2012, Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock said “I certainly think bipartisanship ought to consist of Democrats coming to the Republican point of view.” While Mourdock was criticized for that perspective, I think he expressed a belief that many share – bipartisanship and compromise sound good in theory, until you’re asked to soften your positions or think differently about important issues.

March 15, 2022 - What Kind of Policy Does Electoral Pressure Produce?

Back in 2013, the Daily Show’s John Oliver interviewed an aide to former Senator Harry Reid. He asked, “What makes a politician successful?” The aide responded, “Getting reelected by his or her constituents.” John was – understandably – shocked by that answer and, after an awkward exchange, the now sheepish aide admitted that they should have said “passing legislation” first.

March 1, 2022 -  Feeling Helpless about Ukraine? Let’s Control Our Controllables

The Bridge Alliance is laser-focused on our nation’s citizens and government. That’s why I haven’t said much about the alarming situation in Ukraine; I would be speaking from a place of ignorance. Several members of our community, though, have addressed the situation:
