DFW Political and Economic Issues Discussion Meetup Group

Hey Politicos... Our monthly meetup takes place at 8pm at the Euless IHOP (121 and Glade). Our general agenda is as follows: 1. Discuss the problem or the issue (and hopefully agree on the desired outcomes). 2. Present proposed "solutions" to the issue or problem (ideally from several perspectives). 3. Compare and contrast each "solution" and evaluate them according to the extent that they deliver the desired outcomes. We'll see if we can actually stick to the agenda. Please post suggestions for political and economic topics that you would like for the group to discuss. There should be no shortage of good things to talk about. Looking forward to seeing everyone there and discussing politics and economics with all of you! Todd

    My wife and I would like to know if this group would be open to us joining your meeting as part of tour across America discussing how Congressional dysfunction is affecting you and your community.

    Let us know.
    Thanks.

      Michael, You and your wife are certainly welcome to come join our discussion group. However, the purpose of our meetup is to get together to talk about politics since too many people consider politics a taboo subject in polite social circles. We don’t have designated speakers, meeting agendas, etc. Rather, we take nominations from the group for discussion topics. Whichever topic gets the most votes from the group is the topic we discuss first. Then we repeat the process after we've discussed a topic. If you have a special topic for discussion, it is very likely that the group will be interested enough to discuss it but it would be a roundtable discussion rather than a presentation with a speaker and an audience. (continued)...

      We are not an organized group of activists. We do not all share the same political or economic philosophies. The only activism we participate in is at the election booth. We get together for dinner and a political discussion and have used Meetup to widen our social circle of people who don’t think politics is a taboo subject. As organizers, we cannot give you carte blanche permission to film the gathering. We would love to have you and your wife come to the group to tell us what you have to say but it would be subject to our normal roundtable process. And we can't guarantee that anyone would want to be filmed. Hope to see you this evening.

    I'm no doubt missing an obvious "tab" or notice, so I apologize, but where does one find the topic for discussion at a particular meeting?

    Thanks!

      Hi, Kurt, no you're not missing anything. Actually, our intro needs updating. We no longer have preplanned topics; instead, we choose topics each month by nomination and vote at the beginning of each meetup. Thanks for asking, and hope to see you tonight!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
