Simply put, the mission is dialogue.

More specifically, dialogue that actually moves us forward. Even a cursory perusal of our national conversation reveals a disturbing reality. Social media posts, comment threads and even White House tweets are increasingly vulgar and unnecessarily caustic. Civil discourse is being overrun by discourtesy and childish brutality. While such modes of communication may have a spark of entertaining value in the garage, Hollywood or a locker room, they certainly do not help in our quest for truth, liberty or prosperity.

I am on a mission to elevate our national dialogue by offering an alternative to the hyper partisan, bombastic and divisive rhetoric that dominates our modern culture.

I believe that meaningful dialogue is our best hope for overcoming the challenges facing America today. Without it, the American experiment will undoubtedly fail.
