One-Country.com has a two part mission:
1. To create an online portrait of a representative sample of American voters, depicting the range and diversity of opinion in a country often simplified into 'red' and 'blue,' Republican or Democrat.
2. To encourage people to think critically by showing an average mix of Americans thinking critically. The representative participants profiled in the project will be a pollster's random sample, of all different backgrounds and beliefs, and they will freely discuss issues in small, moderated groups online. They will have the ability to ask questions of experts from across the political spectrum. Visitors to the site will have the opportunity to track the discussion and to see a miniature of informed American democracy in action.
