Open Fire was the brainchild of Jeff Penn and Kevin Kelton, who co-founded the Facebook group in 2014. Our modest goal was to create a forum for civil, intelligent political discussions - not the vulgar verbal mud-wrestling we were seeing in other debate groups. Our mantra is to debate with honor, not debase with insults. Today, with almost 11,000 members spanning the political spectrum, we have a bigger ambition: to become a relevant, powerful voice in national politics. We hope to achieve that by leveraging social media, expanding our footprint, and partnering with other groups to magnify our voice. We hope you'll join us in that lofty goal. So please join the group, read our Guidelines, and jump in. If you have a Facebook group that you think would be a good match for us, please contact me through a PM or email. Let's make the citizen voice count. Kevin Kelton Co-Founder and Lead Administrator, Open Fire. Click here to join, Mention "website" when joining. Meet the team behind Open Fire
