Welcome to Practically Political

With the 2020 election on the not-so-distant horizon, we find our nation bitterly divided and our political system mired in gridlock. Practically Political is a platform designed to speak to concerned citizens who believe in facts and civil debate, and want to engage in serious, rational dialogue. Our articles, podcasts and social media efforts present commonsense ideas, in-depth discussions and respectful interaction focused on solving problems and moving the country forward.

No More Politics As Usual

For those of you who have followed our platform over the years, you know that we changed our name from Practically Republican to Practically Political. The truth is, we'd found that “practical Republican” had unfortunately become an oxymoron in Washington. Our focus is on addressing concerned citizens from all political backgrounds who are issue-oriented realists, rather than driven by strict ideology and partisanship. What America needs right now are pragmatists and I hope you will join us in an ongoing dialogue about what practical politics can and should mean today.

A Message from Founder Dave Spencer

 

As a fifth-generation Rockefeller, my family has a long history of public service. But I’m not running for office. I’m simply a concerned citizen who loves his country and has a passion for politics. My goal is to connect reasonable, rational Americans who, regardless of their traditional political affiliations, will vote the candidates, the issues and their consciences. Whether we like each other or not, we must each put country over party.
