About Political Storm
Political Storm is a new concept, a truly bipartisan place where everyday Americans from all walks of life and from the full political spectrum can have their voice heard and engage in respectful but passionate dialogue.
We think it’s time people got out of their comfort zones and political echo chambers and met somewhere to discuss things. America needs this kind of engagement.
