Our elected officials are now intensely reluctant to work across the aisle, even to address the urgent issues their constituents care about. Why are politicians so scared of their own parties’ radicalized extremes? How do we re-incentivize political collaboration? It’s in answer to these questions that we turn to the concept of the two-party doom loop, or, simply put, the theory that it’s our two-party system itself that cyclically undermines government efficacy and drives us apart.
It’s relatively straightforward to pinpoint the driving causes of this doom loop. Our strategy is grounded in addressing three specific issues:
We exist to do three things: advocate for smart electoral systems reform, educate our national community, and provide free tools to empower anyone who wants to engage with our political system to do, so as easily as possible. Combined, we believe these strategic pillars will help us effectively combat dangerous hyper-partisanship.
