Welcome to Ideas for Americans!  This is a new venue and forum for the expression and debate of the most current and pressing issues confronting Americans.  Although you will most certainly notice the conservative bent of the author, the expression of all points of view are welcomed.  We believe that it is only through the free and full expression of opposing and modifying points of view that Americans can come to a consensus on the definition of what an issue is, how it may be commonly expressed for shared communication, and without unnecessarily attacking the individual for the expression of their own point of view, how it may be resolved by a consensus of the American people.  Please join in our debate!

For ease of navigation (1) proceed to the top bar and select either Commentaries, longer editorial articles, or Thoughts, brief notes, Guest Commentaries, or Major Issues for Discussion and then (2) from the drop down menu select the topic upon which you wish to respond or debate or an Issue you wish to add and (3) leave your response.

Comments will be edited only to eliminate personal attacks and maintain civil discussion.  Once posted Commentaries will be updates monthly to indicate areas of exposed consensus and disagreement in order for the comment and debate to focus only on areas of general disagreement.  Tell your families and friends and thank you for participating!
