About On Point Facts: Delivering Accurate Information

OnPoint Facts is rooted in providing historical perspective on a wide array of topics.

The United States is a young nation in the world. Despite this fact, historical events that have challenged the general populace to solve critical societal problems of their time have been misconstrued, misrepresented in our education, or forgotten/omitted entirely from general understanding and awareness. Each new generation pushes our society further into unknown directions. Appropriate historical knowledge, understanding, and reflection on past political, societal, and economic challenges help our readers apply historical context to new challenges that we face as a society. OnPoint Facts is dedicated to providing this insight and connecting historical implications to a wide array of topics, including voting, politics, healthcare, immigration, international relations, environmental policy, social justice, and more.


Our goal at OnPoint Facts

The main goal for all of us at OnPoint Facts is to encourage people to think critically and be politically active. We cover a wide variety of topics, all of which affect our lives every day. Many are issues that society has been attempting to resolve for decades and will have to continue to consider for decades to come. We recognize the polarizing nature of many of the topics we cover, but On Point Facts values positive action and beneficial community change for all. Substantive societal changes do not happen overnight, but we can reinforce truth and open minds through the delivery and promotion of accurate, valuable, and impactful information.


“If given the truth, they (the people) can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.” – Abraham Lincoln

Let’s leave behind the belief that religion and politics are unfit topics for discussion at the dinner table, and that most national policy is too complicated for individuals and must be left to government’s experts. Let’s encourage civil discourse and the “diffusion of knowledge among the people” which is so essential to democracy.

Let’s embrace the opportunity to talk to those with whom we disagree, learn why we have differences and see how much we have in common. Let’s discover to what degree an honest, open, widespread, and robust dialogue can contribute to solving our most important problems.
