Mutual Respect Agreement

First, we find mutual respect. As a member of this community you agree to the following:

  • To be patriotic to America means you believe in and fight to protect our democracy.
  • Most of us want to be safe, healthy, free to love, able to learn, and practice religious freedom.
  • You do not know, what you do not know. We all make our best judgments and form opinions based on the amount of knowledge we have and experiences we’ve been through. Your opinion will continuously morph as more information is acquired or other perspectives are understood.

From a nation of epic division those are substantial pillars of unity already! 😍 ***Please keep these in mind when engaging with other members.*** Each of us are human. Words affect us all and each of us belong to this community because of our willingness to listen, contemplate, and evolve to be more informed and united citizens and VOTERS.

Posting Guidelines

To protect the INTEGRITY of the conversations, make sure your post include one of the following:

  • Provide facts or fact checking. Cite sources as much as possible. It adds to your credibility and strengthens your argument.
  • Providing additional context relevant to the information given.
  • Your personal perspective. Your personal stories are the heart of meaningful conversation

Cultivating constructive discussions is our goal.

A warning will be given if you do not follow these posting guidelines. If you receive more than 10 warnings in 1 month you will get 1 strike. On the 3rd strike your membership is terminated with no refund and banned.

Disagreeing and debating one another is how we evolve our opinions and nurture a healthy democracy. Attacks towards people are entirely counterproductive, destructive, and distract us away from the important facts that need to be discussed to shape our futures. Attacks towards people will result in a warning. If you receive 5 warnings in 1 month you will get 1 strike. On the 3rd strike your membership is terminated with no refund and banned.

**Always use discretion revealing identifiable information to avoid harassment**

Keep your profile simple. While you may upload any profile photo keep in mind a pic of an interests, fav color, or fav emoji are great profile pics that give someone a chance to connect on similar interest without judging you on the way you look. Our community believes you get 1 voice at the discussion and 1 vote and neither should discriminate against gender, race, religion, or political party so why is that information relevant here? We collect basic information to determine our voting demographics for the ability to apply public pressure to our elected representatives.
