The distinction between "Policy" & "Politics" is all too quickly lost in today's discourse.

The important issues of daily life and philosophy rarely get discussed without the participants dividing up into teams. Policy is debated. Politics is argued. 

The objective here is to provide a place to offer and to find solutions to policy matters without the grind of politics and worse yet partisan rhetoric.

There may not be any element to our lives which isn't leaned upon by some policy or another. More often than not, policies compound. leading to more and more policies until society looses tract of the original goal. These "policy onions" are then deep fried in a political batter made up of self-interests. Here we can begin to peel them apart until they make sense again. Until they work again.

As time, here at Policy Over Politics, passes we will continue to add topics and their subsets of policies. You, the readers are encouraged to contribute. You are welcome to suggest topics and / or specific solutions.
