We at the GypsyLily Contradiction believe that  everyone has an impact on the world, and that it is the duty of each of us to manage that impact responsibly.  As Americans, we have a responsibility to our government that extends beyond our vote. The founders vison of a self run country, included a well informed citizenry, who engaged in debate and discussion, and who had actual influence upon those who they elected to govern them. This is the concept that the creators of the GypsyLily Contradiction had in mind with this website. This is our voice, our contribution, our expression of civic duty.
