Interesting idea

We take for granted what makes us American and unique. So many fail to vote, that only a small percentage of our people are the defacto electorate. Millions if not billions of people around the world would die for a chance to vote in a really democratic election.

Too simple

ROAR has some good ideas. I hope you don't drown them in the sludge pool you rail against. If "our beliefs are diverging more than ever before" that's a sign of what we (and the French and many other nationalities) refer to as "liberty." I think the focus on responsibility is a good direction to go. The anti-government, we're-losing-our-freedom screed is far too simple minded and places ROAR close to the tin foil hat brigade. It might help to remember a lesson from high school civics class: It is a lot easier to rule than it is to govern. I hope you are trying to say that you want better government and not that you want better rulers, i.e., those who agree with you.
