The Soup Movement in America is based on a simple recipe: Bring a bunch of people together to eat soup. Ask each person for a modest donation -- say $5. Listen to a few proposals about how people might use that pool of money for a worthwhile project.

It's going to take awesome and innovative ideas like that to save this country...and the world and bring about positive and meaningful change. Our elected leaders sure can't (and/or won't).
