We are thrilled to announce the launch of Common Good’s new website, which will serve as the online home for our Start Over campaign.
Start Over seeks to revive America’s can-do spirit. For anything to work sensibly, people in charge need to be free to make responsible choices. Today, an ever-thickening blanket of law and regulation has suffocated common sense. Everyone, even the President, is shackled by too much law. It’s time for a spring cleaning.
Start Over aims to shift the debate in America towards the need for a structural overhaul of law and government—so that all Americans have the freedom to take responsibility. It is motivated by one simple premise: Only people, not rules, make things happen.
Government will never fix itself. That’s why we must come together and force a basic overhaul—to restore a structure based on individual responsibility and accountability, not legal paralysis.
Our new website will provide information, host discussions with leading experts, and offer ways for you to get involved. We encourage you to click through the site—sign up for our newsletter, join us on Facebook and Twitter—and offer your feedback. We also ask that you share this website with your friends and colleagues and encourage them to join the campaign.
This movement will be historic. It could even be fun. But it will require you. We thank you for visiting—and hope you return often. It’s time to Start Over.
