Yesterday I wrote a survey diarythat I will be republishing over the next few days as an attempt to reach as many people as possible.  I would urge all of you who are small business owners of the liberal philosophy to share and repost this anywhere you can to help out this group.

As we gain membership, I'd like to thank you all for joining up with such a new group with such aspirations.  In the near future we will be forming a core administration and delegating particular roles for individuals.  The aim of this group will be to not only form a strong network to influence and lobby for desired shared goals, but to also create a network of small businesses that can work together and better compete against the large and monopolistic corporate empires.  They have the US Chamber of Commerce to do their lobbying, our answer to that will be the SBA of K.

Please see me past the squiggle for agenda items.

Some areas in which we will first be focusing include:

Defined goals and policy.
Local outreach and organization.
Identified local politicians to lobby.
Small Business workshops and networking.

Which does bring me to the first point of order.  When creating this group I chose the name Small Business Administration of Kossackistan.  I am not married to that group name.  I would like the first order of business to be for members to brainstorm and determine if that name should be changed, or if it does represent us, and could on a national level.

Use this post and all future as the means of discussion, and if anyone would like an administrative role, has the time to dedicate, and is interested in any of the above focus areas (or any others you can think of) please let me know.

Keep in mind too that we should not be limiting ourselves to just small business owners.  There are many large business owners who share the liberal philosophy, as well as many who will be coming to us in the future that share the entrepreneurial spirit that will be looking for tips and advance.

It is with these words that we begin our campaign for a better middle class, a better business ethic, and a fairness in politics.

~P. R. Redlin, SBA of K (for the time being).

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.

    95% of all life forms that once existed on earth are now extinct. It is only a matter of time until the Republicans follow suit.

    without the attendant business may show up sooner rather than later. ;)

    Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Renee. I live in southern Ca, and I am just getting my feet wet in the world of micro business after years of raising my kids. I like your idea of liberal businesses gathering together. But even more than that, I believe that micro business can be a tool that empowers citizens. That's a pretty lofty idea, especially when I don't have a business off the ground yet. But in for a penny, in for a pound I like to say. :)

    Poverty = politics.
