City and Countryside: How Lifestyle Affects Politics

City and Countryside:
How Lifestyle Affects Politics

For more than a decade, politicians, pundits, and social scientists have explained voting trends in terms of  a divide between rural and urban areas. Yet, within any area the vote is never skewed completely to one side or another. This points to additional factors contributing to party affiliation and voting.  

Are these lifestyle factors?  And if so, which aspects of our lifestyles predict our political views?

Join this weeks conversation as we take a dive into this topic.

LOCAL TOPIC OF THE WEEK  •  March 29TH

Portland:
Identity Politics:

These days there seems to be as much debate over identity politics itself as there is over the treatment and needs of the various groups that are the focus of today’s issues. In this meeting we’ll slow the discussions down to explore what Identity Politics is, how different groups react to the term and the activities, and ask ourselves what we, as a country, stand for with respect to minorities.

We’ll be inviting four panelists to share their experiences and views, and to answer questions from the group at large.

Join us on Thursday, March 29th, as we explore this topic and more.

Tragedy:
How Does America Respond?

When tragedy strikes, as it did recently in Parkland, Florida, America responds with an outpouring of love and support. And then the media and politicians step in.

What motivates the strong reaction to such tragedies? Is it pure political opportunism, as both sides ascribe to each other? Does the media sensationalize coverage to drive readership? Or is it pent up anger and frustration that we, as a country, have not yet done the “right thing?” And is social media the proper forum for activists, victims or the President to speak out?

What is the appropriate response to tragedy? Should it be constructive, or cathartic? How should America respond?

Join us on Wednesday, March 8th, as we explore these questions and more.

NATIONAL TOPIC OF THE WEEK  •  Feb 17 - 24

What’s The Right Balance
Between Federal And State Government?

The United States of America is a 241-year old experiment in balance.

This nation has been debating the correct equilibrium of states’ rights and federal control since the days of Jefferson and Hamilton, continually tinkering with the most effective distribution of power.

In today’s political reality of sanctuary cities, entitlement programs, mass shootings and a potential Supreme Court challenge to Roe V. Wade, the question of whether more control should lie within individual state legislatures or the halls of Congress is alive and well.

Where do you think the right balance of power lies? Join the Crossing Party Lines discussion and have a voice in our Nation’s Conversation! People of all views are welcomed, appreciated, and heard.
