This is a group for UN-like-minded people to come together and participate in informal discussions about various political issues. Given the deep divide between liberals and conservatives that appears to have developed in the past few years, I feel that we could use a space to civilly discuss some of the issues that divide us. Potential topics include capitalism, entrepreneurship, social safety nets, abortion, LGBT rights, the environment and regulation, campaign finance reform - anything that we disagree on is a potential topic. I'm convinced that the divide is mostly a product of the two-party system along with the ability of wealthy individuals, groups and corporations to purchase political appointments via lobbying and campaign finance. At heart, we're all human and we all face the same challenges of daily living. Let's help each other find common ground and peaceful disagreement.
