I am thinking of starting a club at my community college. Basically, it would serve as a forum for people of all political stripes, but especially those who feel unrepresented/underrepresented by the two-party system.
I'm wondering if this is a good idea, given that both the Democratic club and the Republican club have shut down on campus. I'm hoping that a club welcoming independent voices would have a better chance.
I've never done anything like this before, so I'm not sure how to organize it, or how I'm going to get it off the ground, since you need a faculty or staff advisor to endorse it and be present at all club meetings. Also, I have Asperger's Syndrome, so interacting with people is often difficult for me.
Maybe it's an extreme comparison... but when I think of the attacks on our civil liberties, our provincial politicians who often march in lockstep, and the oligarchs with their ill-gotten gains (at state expense RE: bailout) dominating the scene... it sounds a little like Russia.
Can anyone think of other comparisons? Or am I way off base?
