    In my avatar, the blue bars show how many want Reps who COMPROMISE; the aqua bars show who wants Reps who STAND FAST no matter what. (Left=Overall; Center=Democrats; Right=Republicans.) And there's the problem!

      The internet is such a good tool for direct communication of political information. I think people don't know how to trust each other in such a new medium… on a large scale, I mean. But figuring out how to pass this info from person to person without a top down structure will be huge for representative democracy.

      Poverty = politics.

        They won't know what hit them.

        Nice meeting you at the meeting last night!  Sometimes it's nice to go old school politically and actually meet our online friends.

          It was great meeting you. I have been talking to friends today so I might be back next month with reinforcements. If we carpool Fullerton isn't that far.
