Are you ready to enter the game of politics? Get ready, because it’s your turn to solve the country’s problems…one card at a time.

From invading allied forces to overcrowding in local jails, let’s see if the answers are black and white.


The DECISION POINT Method walks Americans through routine decision-making processes for elected officials on some of the most controversial topics in our society. By having a better understanding of how decisions are made, we hope to decrease political hostilities across the country and bridge ideological divisions.

Choose a "Blow-up" Topic
We all know there are certain topics you don’t bring up at get togethers. Those select hot button issues that will blow up the conversation and lead to heated, divisive conversations. Our DECISON POINT Method begins by choosing one of those blow-up topics.
Capitol Building for United States in Washington DC public building
Pick a position of authority
Ranging from city, state, and federal positions of authority, you will then choose which perspective you want to use to address the topic. How would you react to COVID-19 as a Mayor? What about Governor?
Lady Justice and the United States Supreme Court building.
Your Decision Point
You’ve selected your blow-up topic and position of authority, now choose a decision that needs to be made. With the decision you choose, you may have some bad news. A wrench in the process that makes the difficult seem impossible. Taking that one step further, the bad news could also have potential consequences.

The DECISION POINT Method has had clear and undeniable benefits for those who participate in the process. Based in extensive research, the Center for Science of Moral Understanding at the University of North Carolina had this to say:

“For both Democrat and Republican participants, the Decision Point video series made political opponents appear more rational and built greater respect across ideological divide compared to watching them talk about the issues in campaign ads or reading about their personal history.”
