Jack KingstonSo I got this message from Jack Kingston (R GA-01) last week, asking for help "to form a new agenda for America's future". Maybe he's tired of "Get married and work longer hours!" as policy prescriptions.

Hey, I finally met Jack the other week, and had a nice conversation about local history with him (yes, my great-aunt told me about the elephant). And he represents the entire First Congressional District of Georgia, even those of us who didn't vote for him. So let's help him out!

Whaddya think?
Single-payer health care?
End Don't Ask Don't Tell?
Try the war criminals Cheney and Bush!
Kucinich and Grayson for President and Vice President?
OK, maybe not get too carried away; he is a Republican.

Here's the text of Jack's letter:

Dear Friend:

Will you work with me to form a new agenda for America’s future?

It is my goal to bypass the Washington establishment insiders, the pollsters and the know-it-all pundits to go directly to the people.  I would like to take your ideas and those of thousands of other people to form a grassroots platform.

Joining me in this effort are 7 other congressmen who are fed up with the status quo.  It is our hope to enlist hundreds of other congressmen to make this a huge effort.

For now I’d like your ideas.  This will start like a conversation between two friends sitting down with a note pad to make a "To-Do" list.

P.S.  Please consider forwarding this email to your family and friends.  To be effective, we need to engage as many people in the discussion as possible.

So I'm forwarding it to my dailykos friends....
Do what you do so well!

Take the poll, but don't forget to actually send Jack your suggestions!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
