As Americans we are becoming more divided day after day. Whether you are on the Red team, Blue team or no team at all, everyone is resistant to hearing the other persons point of view. This great country was built on debate and compromise. Our forefathers argued day on night over the language in the constitution! But, as you can see the American plan has been a wonderful success. Common Ground was envisioned to bring two opposing points of view together to discuss the differences and hopefully find some middle ground. At the end of the day, you don’t have to agree with your adversary, you just need to understand and respect their position.
We Discuss, You Decide.
I have run for political office many times and have met many people with different perspectives along the way. During my last campaign, as I spoke to community residents with broad opinions, I started to ask. “Don’t you think it would be nice to discuss the other side of the argument and maybe meet on common ground?”. Most of the people agreed we need compromise to move forward. When I lost in my election, I contacted Marc Wariner of KVGI and pitched the idea for the show. I told him Sherrie Salas, political and community activitst would co-host and we would bring in opposing views to discuss national and local issues. Marc of course said it was a great idea and here we are, live on the radio.
