    Why do you have always make "America GREAT again"?

    I am so tired of American greatness. The whole world will suffer under the consequences of  American greatness. Do you know how many people will go hungry, because of damn American greatness? And you want us to follow under those same phony slogans? Can you be more self-critical, self-reflective, please?

    May be you start at the bottom. Try to make America do right again, do justice again, do democracy fairly again.

    Stop this nonsense of greatness. We have had enough of that.

    And well, how about not only register en masse new voters, how about thinking about changing the whole registration process nationwide, standardize primary and caucus rules for federal elections, change the electoral college. I bet that 70 % of the low voter-turnout is dependent on the structure of your voting rules, campaign finance regulations and electoral college shenanigans. Obama is a constitutional scholar, when will he show us that he is serious about changing the parts of the constitution that prevents justice and fairness to happen in a true democracy?

    I mean I am all for organizing and volunteering, but if it takes hundreds of millions of dollars to get volunteers to gain minuscule changes in voter registrations, I would expect to think about structural changes as much as organizational ones. I am not happy if I don't hear Obama showing more of his colors here.

      after years of washington controlled top down campaigning, i guess even giving the tools of community organizing wider distribution isn't good enough for you.

      if you hadn't noticed, obama isn't even a nominee yet... the goals you seek are so massive it will require a HUGE permanent majority in Congress and the White House...

      impossible in a 50/50 nation

      but an idealist can opine all day can't they... how about you chip in a become part of step one and eventually we'll all get there eh?
