DailyKos is about electing more and better Democrats. We have an increasing influence in the party at all levels everywhere. But I confess I am still learning how to do it more effectively.
Yesterday I was exposed to the inner workings of the Democratic party of California. One thing I learned is that any registered Democrat can run to become a delegate to the California Democratic Party State Convention to be held next April 12, but you must register by next Friday.
IMO if we can get several Kossacks elected to the state convention on January 12 and 13 we will improve the party in our state.
My selfish motivation to promote this idea is that this will help with some of my progressive causes like Single Payer and ending the death penalty. I am tired of blue dogs in Sacramento sabotaging key legislation. The way to stop this is to elect better Democrats and the way to elect better Democrats starts through the election of better delegates. Here you'll find more info regarding this process, requirements and actual registration State Convention delegates.
This video is a good starting point;
Some of us will be expanding on this idea over the next few days. I searched for other diaries on this subject but found nothing. If you know of other Kossacks involved in this please let me know.
More and better Democrats.
