THE BILATERAL COMMISSION


The United States is viewed as a divided country, two Americas as it has been described, where two similar yet different ideological interests wrestle for power, as provided by the electorate. 


Bilateralism is the conduct or strategy to establish cultural, economic, or political relations between two states.


The Bilateral Commission has been established to find the common ground between the two Americas.  As a bipartisan interest we research and promote the common values of all Americans, and encourage solutions which provide benefit to all people who call the United States home.

Change Begins with an Idea!

"Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."


- Martin Luther King Jr.
