Our Mission is to help restore politics to its original meaning: the practical art of doing the common good. The process is equally simple: Find one good thing we agree on. Do it. Then move on to the next good thing we agree on.
Our problem is not our differences….our problem is we concentrate on those differences instead of looking for our similarities. One Step America is a symbol to identify our similarities and work towards them, One Step at a time.
The first thing we have agreed upon is something that has worked in several states across the US and will help focus debates and issues in the future. It is a simple but powerful amendment to the constitution that affects the PROCESS of the debate, and not the result. As our first step we propose to amend the United States Constitution so that all legislation is easily traceable, transparent, and not filled with hidden and unrelated matters unable stand on their own merit.
The amendment is simple, one line. It is already found in various forms across the nation in many states whose founding fathers and mothers knew full well the dangers of so called “riders” and the damage that done when they are permitted.
The amendment, reads as follows:
“NO LAW SHALL EMBRACE MORE THAN ONE SUBJECT, WHICH SHALL BE EXPRESSED IN ITS TITLE.”
Let us take One Step at a time…
“Progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer.
If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man.”
~ C.S. Lewis (Mere Christianity)

“The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today. Let us move forward with strong and active faith.”
