Like most in America, my neighborhood back in Marietta, GA is a political hot-box, with folks whose beliefs range from staunch conservative to ultra-progressive, and everywhere in between.  But on most summer days, they can be found down at the neighborhood swim and tennis center, where parents converse about local issues such as schools, the proposed new mall, or the fact that police patrols had stepped up nicely after a string of vandalisms were reported.  Still others abandon politics for a while in favor of a doubles match against their longtime rival subdivision’s team.  
 
And for those hours, these political opposites are caught up in solving common problems; whether how to fund the school's ailing arts program or how to break the guy with the one hundred mile per hour serve.  In short, the swim and tennis center provides fertile ground in which transpartisan* values are born and advanced. The questions are, can we apply those same principles to issues with larger geographic reach?  And can we make those in Washington understand and promote our goals and our objectives?
 
Tonight, we want to hear your transpartisan success stories and ways to apply those same process to the bigger issues that are facing the vast majority of Americans today.   Please join host Dan Aronson as we seek transpartisan solutions to our common problems.  Listen in live here here starting at 10PM EST / 7PM PST, or call in to voice your opinion at  (646) 929-2495.  And when you do, remember to Press [1] for Democracy.
