New Vision for America, a New Vision
for The World
Progressive Convergence uses internet community technology to bring the best of our leaders
together with citizens in a collaborative
platform creation project. Featuring
the published opinions of such progressive
visionaries as Dennis Kucinich, Ralph
Nader, Barbara Lee, Arundhati Roy, Noam
Chomsky, Ron Paul and others, the
website will ultimately synthesize the
information and reflect the most ideal
progressive platform to date. And it will keep on changing.
process is similar to the “electronic
town hall” concept that has been tossed
around by independent political candidates
for years. The essence of it is to increase
actual citizen involvement in the policy

At this juncture, they will have
the opportunity to read comments, entertain
new ideas, and make changes to their
own work as they evolve in their own
thinking and policies.
There will be many opportunities for registered voters
of the site to vote (instant runoff
where multiple options are available)
on policy submissions and/or candidates.
The results will be the ever
changing best of the best… a unified
and consistent, yet flexible, Progress
platform, as ideal as we can come up
with: the Progressive Convergence
Platform, the end result of a democratic
process in miniature.
Since these great visionaries and leaders are very busy,
yet well published, in this initial
stage, we reach
out to you to recommend to us
your most favorite and progressive visionary. We ask you to digest, edit and synthesis their published works and
place them into a format that we have
designed and provided for you. We will
then post their photo and their policies.
Have fun expressing the points
of view of those you adore and admire.
Let us hear from you soon. And remember they don’t have to be famous or
even alive… just brilliant!
