      fund.

      People do $10 to $whatever per month.  Pool the funds, assign to Progressive candidates, and multiply by how well they do.

      PINO's don't get much, solid Progressives get a lot.

      Everybody signs up, and we've got a flow of money that cuts their burden, and if we set some of it aside, can be used for ADs, challenges, etc...

      Just make it recurring, outta sight, out of mind kind of thing.

      Then, if they give on top of that, they decide where it goes, but the Progressives get a nice fund raising bump that doesn't cost people a lot.

      IF THEY ARE GOING TO SCREW THE PEOPLE, MAKE THEM OWN IT.

        is an attempt in that direction. generally speaking, i think the internet paradigm is still finding its feet. it might even be necessary to create think tanks with a beltway presence. with the hope that the system can be changed making such a presence unnecessary.
