Move Beyond Left or Right - Become Post Partisan
Americans for Evidence Based Legislation (AFEBL) has a simple mission:
To identify, support and share legislation that values empircal evidence over partisan ideology.
Hyper-Partisan squabbling is bad for America. Fighting for a good cause is great, but what if the conflict is unneccessary? Are we just fighting for fighting sake? This makes no sense and is a direct result of decades of extreme partisan politics. We all want to win and some go too far and feel that they must win at any cost. Any tactic is now acceptable, even complete disregard for the truth. Information, misinformation and disinformation are available everywhere around the clock and Americans are drowning in it. “Fake news” is more than just a hashtag thrown around on social media. It is a dangerous disruption used on both sides of the political aisle and one that has already led to junk legislation. Being Post Partisan is better.
AFEBL represents a community that cares more about good laws and smart choices than political labels. Through this site, we offer data tools and initiatives to make it easier for like-minded Americans to support legislation that moves us forward to better realize the potential of our great experiment.
We are a nonpartisan civic organization for identifying, listing, learning, researching and presenting legislation in light of peer reviewed evidence. Advocacy efforts flow from good data. We seek those who feel the call to public service who value an evidence based approach to governance. Here's how you can get involved:

It's easy to keep the pressure on. How do you think lobbyists are so successful in shaping US policy? More on the most effective methods of contact.
This is truly a time to take action. Here is a nice resource. The absolute most important thing that people should be doing every day is calling their Senators and Representatives. You should make 6 calls a day: 2 each (DC office and your local office) to your 2 Senators & your 1 Representative. Fast, simple, easy.
IMPORTANT. How to get your information.
