  •  We need to work together (5+ / 0-)

    The only way to defeat the machine that runs the Democratic party in California is to have many progressive groups come together with our money, feet on the ground and kick some ass!

    I was a volunteer in a coalition of labor and environmental groups (including the bicycle coalition!) who came together to pass one proposition that helped MUNI, and defeat a second proposition, backed by the Republican millionaire Don Fisher, of Gap fame.

    It was a unique coalition, it should grow from here. I think that is the only chance the citizens of California are going to get them to listen to us. We need to have big numbers.

      ... the Green and Peace and Freedom Parties.  They could be of much assistance in this, if some people could put their hatred of them aside.  Try to recruit them into the overall coalition, and seriously start thinking about supporting a Green/P&F hybrid third party candidate should she run for reelection and a primary challenge in 2012 fails.
