    to connect with like minded people.  It gives you the incentive to do more.  For example, I always voted for Democrats but never really did anything beyond that until the run-up to war in Afghanistan and Iraq. All of a sudden I felt completely alienated from the rest of America because of the media narrative and how they cheerleaded us into war.  Going to an anti-war rally on the mall made me feel connected once again.  I would never have knocked on doors or driven people to the polls before that.  Hopefully others will feel the same way if they participate in their first march.

      It IS nice to connect with like minded folks.  No substitute, for that.

      Have you ever tried going to your elected officials' offices?  How did it turn out?
