A: AmericanDream two key objectives are:
1) Provide the best news experience possible and organizing it all for you in one web portal. The old way was letting the media determine what you should read. AmericanDream puts you in charge by helping you select what to explore, share, and discuss with your family, friends, and colleagues.
2) Put citizens back in control of their government. AmericanDream is a unique social networking community that provides customizable information (all sources are clearly identified by bias) to help you learn more and articulate what you believe — whatever those beliefs are — and hold your politicians accountable. We are helping you rebuild our democracy from the ground up.
A: Our political house is on fire. We decided to not watch it burn anymore. Together, we can save it. Even though we might like the idea of elected officials peering over the walls they have formed to see millions of electronic torches and pitchforks headed their way, we know that is not the answer. It’s time to put the people first by putting your words, thoughts, and desires into action.
A: The 2020 elections put Democrats back in control of the Executive Branch and the Senate. For at least the next two years, Democrats control both the Executive Branch and Congress since Democrats took back control of the House in the 2018 midterm elections. These victories for the Democrats are significant, but they have a narrow hold on Congress. Democrats control the Senate with a 50-50 ratio of members, a tie-breaking vote by Vice President Kamala Harris, and a power sharing between Majority Leader Schumer and Minority Leader McConnell. In the House, Democrats lost all 27 races the Cook Political Report rated as “toss-ups” and Republicans also picked up seven of the 36 seats the Cook Report rated as “likely Democrat" or "lean Democrat.” Speaker Pelosi went from 233 D to 195 R (and 5 vacant seats) to a 221 D to 211 R margin (with 3 seats currently vacant). Voters sent several messages to politicians and the media. Voters were frustrated. But were those frustrations based on emotion, personalities, a desire for a shift in policies, a concern over ceding too much power to one party, etc.? Time will tell but there is no doubting the importance of the 2022 midterm elections.
AmericanDream is a game-changing news and social media platform designed for you, whether you decide to just get your news in a new way or take the next step and act on issues you care about. The media and political establishments will finally know the old ways are over.
