Politics Made Simple was built on a vision of civil discourse, truth, and succinctness during a time when little of it existed in America: April 2020, the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Constituents and lawmakers from either party couldn’t even listen to each other with civility, causing the subsequent pandemic to proliferate throughout American society and cause over 450,000 deaths in the US alone.
Further, most Americans didn’t trust the news. The majority of news organizations were labeled as catering to only one political party, such as CNN for Democrats and Fox News for Republicans. The few exceptions were labeled ‘nonpartisan,’ meaning readers will only know the boiled-down facts about an issue but never understand opposing political opinions. This is not ideal either.
Also, articles are just too long. No reader has the time to read 3,000-word articles on every issue they’re concerned about, no matter how interested they are.
So how do we resolve that?
Politics Made Simple helps people become more politically informed citizens. We want to bring to the table what today’s media lacks: short, concise information readable in less than 5 minutes, and which represent multiple facets of nearly every current event. When applicable, we state both conservative and liberal views on a certain topic so that you can formulate your own opinions based on the evidence and commentary.
United by this cause, we are made up entirely of teens who work for free amid busy school, sports, and social schedules to follow our vision of a politically informed America.
