HowToTalkPolitics.com is about better communication between the Left and the Right. Today’s political dialogue is often nonexistent–we have our heels dug in and we’re not budging an inch! But in such a heated climate, how will anything get done? Here you’ll find a blog and other resources for bridging gaps, listening better, and ultimately getting things done. Created by a co-founder of Reach Out Wisconsin, the focus here is respectful communication.
In some issues it is true that one side is just plain wrong, but in most issues there are nuances that get lost in the sound bites. No one party or group has a monopoly on morality–or solutions. This website isn’t about finding middle ground but about mastering the art of talking politics respectfully. Surprisingly, through this indirect process, we can stumble upon more sustainable solutions to our national problems.
