    ...trying to change the national dialog outside of the system through an organization with pretty much no power to speak of can be every bit as soul-sapping and demoralizing as working to change existing organizations.

    I don't want to seem too combative here. I am with the Coffee Party philosophically and I want them to be successful. I have just spent too much wasted time with groups that set out to change the world only to see them peter out a short time later because they weren't successful right away and began to realize how difficult it is to obtain true political power in this country.

    I am, in some ways, playing the Devil's advocate and my mind is, in fact, open. Vince and I are friends, actually :)

    To be clear, it's "EClectablog", not "Electablog".
