  •  Thanks for the post Bill! (3+ / 0-)

    Are you running as an Independent or as a Dem?

    Not the church. Not the state. Women will decide their fate.

    •  I am a Democrat, Jaci! (5+ / 0-)

      I haven't abandoned my party by any means. We just need to change, in my opinion, how we support our candidates.

        What do you suggest be done?

        •  I have some ideas. (6+ / 0-)

          First of all, believe in EVERY candidate.

          At the very least give us all some training. I didn't get any training at all. We could really make a difference.

          Invite us to come to some kind of summit and get to know each other so we have a personal connection. Then we would really care about each other's races.

          Give us each $1,000 to start just to help us and to make us feel that our Party at least cares. It won't win a race but it will give us hope, and that's pretty important.

          Don't treat us like children when we aren't in the "chosen" districts. This is the hardest part. I'm a good person trying to make a difference. I don't need to have my every need catered to, but I'd like to be treated with the same basic dignity and respect that I give to everyone else.

          We need to find ways to reward Democrats for stepping up to run for office. Too often we simply forget them, and I have to tell you, sometimes it feels like being neglected by your own family.

          There's much more that could be done, but no one's really asking me, are they?  :)

            Bill.  We have the same politics where I am. Only certain Dems get to play and they are backed financially.  But the grass roots have taken notice and are starting to change things at the local level.

            Good luck Bill.  We need more candidates like you who tell it like it is.
