Patriot Lemonade: Be Part of the Solution.
PatriotLemonade.com is a way for regular Americans to solve the problems of our nation.. The creators of the site are Tara McNamara and Kevin Dalton, radio pros who witnessed that current political programming isn't fixing our political issues, it's making them worse. That "them vs. us" stuff may keep politicians accountable, but it's come on so strong that politicians are clearly afraid to make a move on anything. What is missing are solutions, action on existing solutions, and an outlet for the regular Joe and Jane to have a voice in creating those solutions.
Think about it: offices, bars and coffee shops are full of people discussing how they think the country should be run. You've probably got a few ideas of your own, we all do. Until now, there's been no real method to deliver your solution to a member of Congress or a person in power. What if you could get your solution to someone who could put it into motion? What if YOUR solution was the one to get America out of a jam?
Here's how it works.
1. Find the nation's problem that you want to solve (like "balancing the budget" or "America's role in Syria").
2. Enter your solution.
3. Then, others in the Patriot Lemonade community will vote whether they think your solution will work.
4. Separately, an expert in that specific field will evaluate the solutions given by the community, identifying and explaining which solutions are solid (or not).
5. Once the Patriot Lemonade community comes to a consensus on the solution, we present it to someone in Congress or is in a position to make an impact on that issue. [We first experimented this concept as a radio show. We found experts were eager to help shape solutions and those in Congress were eager to hear what the American people had to say.]
Additionally, if you think you can improve upon someone else's solution, you can offer your tweaks. We have Think Tanks where the community can converse on an issue, keeping he dscussion solutions-based.
In other words, Patriot Lemonade is a place where Americans from all walks of life can come together to make our country a better place. Moreover, it's a place where people of reason can discuss politics in a productive way and truly make a difference.

What We Need & What You Get
The site is built and it functions well. However, we were warned by many web designers that it's hard to get a site that is both visually appealing and fully functional. We will use our funds for two things:
- Hire a Graphic Designer to clean it up visually and make it easier to navigate.
- Building awareness through ads, public relations and SEO.
Our goal is $10,000, but please, we could certainly use any additional funds to make people and politicians aware of PatriotLemonade.com, including taking out ads proclaiming "the people's solution" to a problem.
Patriot Lemonade will revolutionize the way the world solves problems, by bringing it back to the people. You, as a donor and as a solutionist, have the ability to "be the change you want to see in the world" without ever leaving your living room.
Citizens of country's across the world used social media to connect, unite, and be heard. Now, it's your turn to be a part of something big. And we can make it happen.
As talk radio professionals,Tara and Kevin have spent the last couple of years making the political talk radio community aware of Patriot Lemonade. Patriot Lemonade is a useful tool for radio hosts in culling public opinion and inspiring show topics. Additionally, politicians want to connect with the public and, moreover, be perceived as listening to the public. With the support of politicians, politicos and commentators, Patriot Lemonade will allow the voice of the people to be heard.
