Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 27, 2012
Michael Hopkins and Cate Costa, founders of Only Honest, joined forces to use the power of social media to re-take control of the political conversation and remind the politicians and pundits that they are supposed to represent the people. The two childhood friends - who met at summer camp - combined news-junky Michael’s political whit and Cate’s passion for enriching small businesses and entrepreneurs to create Only Honest and give every citizen back a voice.
Only Honest’s vision is to engage all voices to be heard. The current reality is that there are a few loud voices controlling the conversation and the rest get drowned out. As we head into the final days before we elect the next President of the United States, Only Honest provides an online forum for all citizens to participate in the political process. Too often the political discourse is controlled by media conglomerates that mute the average American’s voice instead of by average Americans themselves. Only Honest is the venue that gives a voice back to the American people so that they can control the conversation about this election and about future issues that face the United States.
"Only Honest is about putting the power back into the hands of average Americans. It’s about demanding that our voices be heard. This country is a democracy, and when people engage in political debate and participate in the discussion, the social contract is strengthened." – Michael Hopkins, Founder – Only Honest
