    The Republican motto: "There's been a lot of progress in this country over the last 75 years, and we've been against all of it."

      like us.  But there are more that are too disenfranchised or distracted from the whole system to feel getting involved does any good.  Working one on one to help change that is important.  And keeping "politics" out of discussions seems to help as well.....using "life" and "remember when" stories goes a long way to helping people see the true boogeymen.  I have been a bit surprised to find that i have a lot of issues in common with my neighbors, some of whom are rapid conservatives.  The corruption in our system is at the top of the list.  

      Changing our media needs to be a priority, because across all political lines, everyone knows it sucks and doesn't inform.  We need to ditch the "niche media" too.....retreating into echo chambers has brought us to where we are.
